“Till The World Ends (Remix)” – Britney Spears Feat. Nicki Minaj & Ke$ha

So I’m not sure if this is THE official remix, but it’s definitely AN official remix… The bridge part is kinda crazy awesome but the rest of it I’m mildly unsure of. It just seems kind of pointless. It’s the same song with random parts that are changed – Ke$ha sings part of the chorus and it’s just so auto-tuned and pointless that it may as well have been Britney. I don’t get it. Am I gonna listen to it though? Yea. Yea, I am.

“Something’s Coming” – Alex Young

Ready for the next biggest movement in pop music? I PROMISE you will like this song and your emotions will run wild.

If you haven’t heard of Alex Young.. you’re behind! Not only is she the next hottest pop diva on the scene, but she’s a diva with a message. Her latest single, “Government Name”, did extremely well, garnering the #4 position on MTV Logo’s Pop charts and sustaining this position for over 6 weeks (it’s still there!). Now, Alex is back with a new single called “Something’s Coming”.

The first time I heard this song, I instantly got chills down my spine, and couldn’t get it out of my mind for weeks. With the deep crisis the world is in, there is a huge need for hope and a greater need for change. “Something’s Coming” is a message of both. We NEED to make a change in this world before something really tragic happens, like the tsunami in Japan or the earthquake in Haiti, to name a few. You MUST listen to this beautiful song – the instrumental is incredible, the lyrics are moving (to say the absolute LEAST), and AY’s vocals are beyond amazing. Truly touching.

Stay tuned for this soon-to-be-viral music video dropping very soon! I will post the download link with the video.

Heavy In Your Arms (Derek Sabiston Remix)” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

YES YES YES. Florence dubstep!! I brought you Derek Sabiston’s Bassnectar Vs. Willow Smith dubstep mix of “Whip My Hair”, and now he just emailed me with his latest dubbity doo remix. It’s SO amazing. Part of me is getting tired of dubstep and womping, but the other part of me listens to this song and melts in it. Love. THIS.

Rolling In The Deep (Kenton Dunson Remix)” – John Legend (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

WOW. This guy is cuhrazy talented. I can not get over how amazing these two songs are. The first is an original by Kenton called “Momentum”. It’s an R&B/hip-hop fusion song with strings, guitar, samplings, and awesome electro beats toward the end. I really can not deal with how good this is. Absolutely smitten.

The second song is a remix of John Legend’s cover of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”. Mildly confusing, but nonetheless incredible. He adds his hip-hop twist to the song and makes it sooo cool (even though it was already pretty epic).

I need more Kenton! Gimme gimme.

“Life Or Something Like It” – Outasight

Life Or Something Like It” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Wow! I’m shocked by how awesome this is. It’s kind of reminiscent of Passion Pit. But not as electro. And a little more hippity hoppity. The algorithm for this song would be something like:

Passion pit – 1/4 electro + 1.5 hip-hop = “Life Or Something Like It”

That may not be 100% accurate. I’ve never been much of a mathematician.

Float Away” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Save Your Soul” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Introducing: Super Rocket Car! Super Rocket Car is an awesome New Jersey band, the singer being a friend of a friend of mine. They’re very talented musically and lyrically. This is the kind of music that anyone can listen to and thoroughly enjoy. It’s poppy and rocky, but just the right amount of each, making a perfect, uplifting combo. It’s almost a pop-punk revival meets Jason Mraz/John Mayer. I’m not really sure if that makes sense. Do you like Blues Traveler? Cause I also get that vibe from these guys. You should probably just listen and enjoy…

MUSIC VIDEO: “Glory” – Ryan Leslie

Really like this. Ryan Leslie just released his new music video, “Glory”, which is the first video off his new album Les is More and I love what he did with it. It’s a great hip-hop song; love the power-instrumental and lyrics. Electric guitar + haunting chorus? I’ll  take it. One of the scenes in the video is reminiscent of Drake, but I can’t remember which Drake video I’m thinking of.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ryan, check out a snippet of the press release here:

“Leslie is no stranger to glory. A graduate of Harvard at 19, his first mentors in the music industry were Sean “Diddy” Combs and Tommy Mattola. Since then, he has gone on to produce Billboard-topping tracks for the likes of Fabolous, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, as well as launching the career of fledgling pop-star Cassie. Not to be outdone, his own solo efforts have been highly applauded, earning him nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Best Male R&B Artist” at the 2009 BET Awards as well as a Grammy nomination for Transition.”

Buy “Glory” on iTunes HERE!
