Late Review: Jason Mraz "Won´t Give Up".

2012 seems to be a great year for music, it has been a week since this new song was available for download and i´m glad to hear that  Jason Mraz is back with a very heartfelt, honest song, staying true to himself and doing what he does best,  is a very simple guitar driven record and is that simplicity what makes it so good, he continues to prove why he is such a great singer.
"I won´t Give Up" debuted at #1 on the digital chart with 229.000 downloads, the first chart topper for him, it also debuted at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, second top 10 in his career, wich is a littel crazy, if we think about how big was "I´m Yours" back in 2008, his new album is expected to hit stores in May.


Jennifer Hudson "Thinks like a Woman and Acts like a Man".

Jennifer Hudson nabs the theme song for the upcoming film "Act like a Lady, Think like a Man", the song features vocals from Ne-Yo and Rick Ross, is a very agsressive and full of attitud song, althought i don´t get the feeling of a theme record, i cannot denied how good it is.

You can go harder or you can go home Will.I.Am.

I can not deny the talent that Will.I.Am has as a producer, but as a writer or singer there is a lot that we can talk about for example his new single "T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)" from the upcoming album "WillPower", it is an odd colaboration with J.Lo and Mick Jagger, the beat is crazy, but the lyrics are very weak, singing lines like "I´m making money for my grandkids nieces" and "You can be a geek or a Rolling Stonna" doesn´t seem he put a lot of thought into the lyrics, this is one of those songs were the beat is everything, it sound like something that the "Black Eyed Peas" would sing, he  is not stepping to far away fron the E.ND.


All I want for Christmas is .....?

Christmas is aproaching fast as some holiday tunes have already started to impact the airwaves, this year seems to be quite the fever for a particular song, but not any song is indeed is a record that has become a modern holiday classic,  each year sets new records and becomes more popular, is no other than "All I Want For Christmas Is You".
The holiday hit, is being cover this year by Michael Buble and Amber Riley (Aka Mercedes from Glee), each  one putting their own style, while Justin Bieber decided to do a duet with Mariah Carey herself, the three versions are very different and what i really like is that the song is reaching out to wider audience, listen and decide which one is your favorite version for this year.

Are "You Da One" Rihanna?

Recently Rihanna made history when she achieved her 11# one on the Hot 100 with "We Found Love", now and really fast she is moving towards her second single from the upcoming album "Talk That Talk" which is out on november 21st.
"You Da One" is the next single, is a caribean jam, is fun and kind os catchy but i find it irritating at time, is not as good as the first single is a big disapoinment, i will be surprise if this song becomes a hit.

"We Found Love" with Rihanna.

Rihanna doesn´t seem to give us a break these days ... lets point out the fact that she is the most successful female artist of the last decade by achieving 10 #1 singles faster than any other, her most recent album "LOUD" became a world wide success, but that isn´t enough she already working on a new album, her first single "We Found Love" ft. UK DJ Calvin Harris, has premiered today.

This is an upbeat dance floor song, it has a good feel, a good chorus but lacks of lyrics, the beginning is great but towards the middle and the end i felt lost and disconnected, seems like both of them should have work more because there is something lacking.

Enrique Iglesias "Likes How It Feels".

Enrique is taking out as much as possible from his Euphoria album, now by releasing a repackaged version, which will feature Jennifer Lopez on a track called "Mouth2Mouth", and this one called "I Like How It Feels" featuring Pitbull, is an upbeat feel good and  full of energy song reminiscent to "I Like It", it is also in the trend of recent whistle songs like Britney´s "I Wanna Go", Foster The People´s "Pumped Up Kicks" or Maroon 5´s "Moves Like Jagger".
