It's Pop & Kelis are back in business

After three weeks without blogging, a rather great interview of Martina-from-Dragonette (coming soon, I promise), a rather dull album from Rihanna (Cold Case Love is cool, though, as well as a few other tracks but it generally cannot be compared to Good Girl Gone Bad), more Gaga-fever unleashed on the world, and no time to sit at my computer and write about pop music, I'm back. and so is Kelis. Remember her awesome hit Milkshake back in 1458? Well, after being quiet for quite some time, she teamed up with French hitmaker David Guetta on her rather awesome new track Acapella. It's poppy, up-tempo, rather harmless and perfect to get everybody on the dancefloor. So for that, I say thanks to Kelis and Dave. Suddenly the winter seem warmer...

Lady Gaga - Dance In The Dark : awesome

More than eighteen months after I first heard about her, I might start to like Lady Gaga. Sure, her tunes are catchy and sometimes really good (Lovegame). But to me, she's trying too hard. However, with The Fame Monster, the re-release of her first album The Fame, which is now said to be released as a proper 8-track disc with a deluxe edition containing the songs from The Fame (are you still following?!), I'm changing my mind about her. The first single Bad Romance is already proving to be a genius pop song, while the other leaked track Alejandro sounds like a slice of electro-pop heaven. The latest track to leak is the absolutely awesome Dance In The Dark. All I can say for the moment is that I loved it instantly and will be spinning it a LOT in the coming days. If you haven't already, I'm afraid it's time to surrender to the power of the Gaga.
