Fergie’s New Song “L.A. Love (La La)”


 

By Keoki/BLENDERtunes

It’s been eight long years but Fergie Ferg has finally unleashed her new single “L.A. Love (La La)”.

So all of that time out of the game should have given her some time to grow and mature as an aritst, right? Well it didn’t unfortunately. The 39-year-old singer sounds like she is just coasting through this dated and clichéd song (Is it still cool to name drop cities?). And by the way, knowing full well that Naughty Boy and Sam Smith had a HUGE hit with their song “La La La” why would you release THIS?!

The song is a bit catchy and has an OK beat produced by DJ Mustard who has worked on recent hits like Tyga’s “Rack City”, Trey Songz “Na Na”, and T.I.’s “No Mediocore”. However, Fergie doesn’t really do anything memorable to the lackluster track.

I have big expectations for Fergie – maybe too big of expectations. Maybe the song will grow on me. But lezbehonest though – it wont. With other comebacks expected in the near future from Gwen Stefani, Mary J, Madonna, and Janet, if the rest of Fergie’s album sounds like this mess, she will definitely get swept up under a rug and nobody will even care. Let’s just hope that this is a minor set back and the rest of her new album will be more Fergalicious and less La La Lame.

Court In Session: The End of Gay Marriage Bans?


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Today the nine Supreme Court Justices met privately to discuss whether or not they should take up cases that challenge state same-sex marriage bans.

Right now a total of seven cases challenging state bans on same-sex marriage are pending in the states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Virginia, Utah and Oklahoma.

And this time around the potential outcome could be the greatest yet, because should the nine Supreme Court Justices decide to take up the question of whether states are allowed to ban gay and lesbians to get married, their ruling could be applied to all the states, which ban same-sex marriage. Georgia, along with 30 other U.S. states, is among the states that still ban same-sex marriage.

So, potentially the decision to take up this question and the ensuing ruling (should it deem marriage bans not allowed) in the current seven cases, could mean that bans on same-sex marriage wouldn’t be allowed in any state on a federal level. And that’s a pretty big deal! For Georgia it could be a kind of ‘win by default’ because technically (and legally) the state ban on same-sex marriage would be dissolved.

But don’t start hearing those distant wedding bells just yet, because the meeting was held under private circumstances and the Supreme Court doesn’t reconvene officially until next week. When back in session the justices must vote on whether or not to take up the cases and if four or more justices vote for a case, it will be heard. The fact that the justices met before actually commencing their new term goes to show that they want to be up to speed on the issue and want to be able to make the right move when the decision is made.

There’s no denying that this issue is of great importance to the Supreme Court being one of the first to be taken into consideration in the new term – so even though we’re not quite there yet, here’s hoping that this will be a step in the right direction to end bans on same-sex marriage all together.

Now she is back and better than ever. Her new single is already burning up the charts with its full-force pop melody, catchy handclap beats and hair-flipping hooks.

Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” Followup


By Keoki/BLENDERtunes

If you have a radio… and the ability to hear… then you undoubtedly have heard “All About That Bass” at least TWENTY FOUR times already. You can’t help it that you know the chorus word for word. And you can’t also help that you are humming it right now. It has become the song of the Summer and basically the song of my life. Between Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” anything by Iggy Azalea, and Meghan Trainor… this has been quite the voluptuous year of the booty! 

So what’s Miss Meghan Trainor got up her sleeves for us next? Could the cupcake loving Princess of Booty Doo Wop Pop (TM) follow up her “All About That Bass” smash? Sure. Why not!

“Dear Future Husband” is Meghan’s follow up single and it is just as tongue-in-cheek as her first single. The song has that same retro-pop vibe as her debut single and it’s just as refreshing. How could we not love this woman when she writes lyrics like these…

You got that 9 to 5 / Okay but so do I / So don’t be thinking I’ll be home and making apple pie / ’cause I never learned to cook.”

AND

“I’ll be sleeping on the left side of the bed / Open doors for me and you might get some… kisses.”

Now this is the type of girl I want to hangout with! Put on a blonde wig, pillow fight, dance on the bed, and make fun of Sandra Dee – that blonde bimbo.

Don’t you love her latest song? Let us know below.

you’re welcome.

Target Gives Middle Finger to Anti-Gay Boycott


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

 What does a national and major retail store do after being boycotted by anti-gay organization because of signing a legal brief supporting marriage equality? Does it succumb to the pressure of a boycott and withdraw its inclusive stance? Or does it show the proverbial middle finger to those organizations that do not support basic equality by rubbing their argument in their faces? The last is exactly the case with Target, the red dot retailer, that had anti-gay organizations like The National Organization for Marriage, the Liberty Counsel and American Decency Association saying that the company’s public support of same-sex marriage was “slap in the face to millions of pro-family customers.” The so-called pro-family organizations urged a massive boycott of Target. Now, less than a month later of signing the equality legal brief that backed dissolving the ban on same-sex marriage in Indiana and Wisconsin, Target sends a very clear message to the gay haters by launching a national ad campaign promoting their ‘Made To Matter’ hand-picked products that showcases a gay couple and their kid.

The ad campaign is backed by a quote from Target Executive Vice President of Human Resources Jodee Kozlak, who wrote on the company’s blog: “It is our belief that everyone should be treated equally under the law, and that includes rights we believe individuals should have related to marriage.”

Now we get to see if an actual anti-gay boycott will manifest itself on Target’s financial bottom line, because this counter measure ought to have those anti-gay bigots stay far, far away from Target (wouldn’t that be nice?). One thing is certain, though: Target’s got my buck!

Divalicious Dance Duo XELLE Release New Music Video “Sweat”


Get ready for a little more heat in these final days of summer! As fall approaches, September is sizzling with the release of XELLE’s music video for their new single “Sweat.”  Everyone knows XELLE as the girl group who threw that illegal dance party on a mobile NYC subway train. Well, the dance floor divas are back and ready to get down and dirty with their new hit song.

According to band member, Rony G, “It’s what’s playing in your mind when you see that hot guy or girl across the bar and you know it’s time to make a move.” Rony’s other musical half JC Cassis adds, “It is all about flirting, feeling sexy and confident, and giving in to your romantic desires.”

All of those sentiments are evident when you watch the electrifying video, which is a parody of late-night eighties fitness infomercials and those outrageous fitness classes that make you wonder who in their right would subject themselves to such frivolity.

Drag stars Bianca Del Rio, Sherry Vine and Marti Gould Cummings even make surprise guest appearances.

Watch the video below to get your “Sweat” on!

Listen up y’all… Mary J. Blige is back! FINALLY!


By Keoki/BLENDERtunes

We’ve been anxiously waiting for the Queen of Hip Hop Soul to bring us another killer album. It’s been too long since her last album My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1) came out back in 2011 (we wont count the awful Think Like A Man Too soundtrack that she somehow got involved with). That soundtrack was almost as bad as the horribly Photoshopped movie poster (just Google image search Think Like A Man Too Soundtrack).

Anyways, Mary has been quietly working on her latest album The London Sessions over across the pond and has teamed up with some amazing London talent. Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, and Naughty Boy have all helped Mary J. with her latest musical journey. She just released her newest single “Right Now” off of the album and has enlisted the help of English electronic music duo Disclosure. Now you might not recognize the name Disclosure but if you listened to the radio in the past couple of months, you will undoubtedly have heard one of their songs – their biggest hit in the states is “Latch” featuring Sam Smith. The song is a glorious meeting of two titans in the music biz. Mary’s vocals beautiful lace the synth heavy track and brings a fullness to the song. If this collaboration is any indication of the way the album is heading, it’s going to be one of the best albums of the year – you can quote me on that!

Have a listen to the track below and let us know what you think. The London Sessions drops December 2.

you’re welcome.

Calvin Harris IS To “Blame” For His New Song


By Keoki/BLENDERtunes

After teasing the world for the past few months that his new collaboration with John Newman would be coming out soon, Calvin Harris has FINALLY released his song to the masses – and this is where I fall asleep. This is where a lot of people will fall asleep.

Now before you go get your pitchforks and torches and condemn me for not loving a Calvin Harris song, know that I absolutely love Calvin Harris! He’s extremely talented, has a HUGE track record of putting out quality music, and always works with other great artist like John Newman. You might not recognize the name John Newman but you’ll know exactly who he is after listening to the song – his voice is very unique. John also had a hit last year with “Love Me Again” and since then, I’ve become a fan! So when I read that he and Calvin Harris were working together on a new track, I couldn’t wait! I dreamt of a synth heavy track laid over by some smooth vocals and a killer drop! I guess I put the idea of them working together up on a pedestal – a Calvin Harris/John Newman Greek goddess pedestal.

Little snippets of the song “Blame” have been teased to us through Calvin’s Instagram account for the past few weeks and to be honest, I liked the teases more than the entire song. And no, I’m not a tease – despite what my ex’s might say. The song just doesn’t really go anywhere and is kind of Snoresville. There’s no real buildup. The drop sounds a bit awkward. And it sounds a bit too much like his other song “I Need Your Love” which isn’t a bad thing but it’s not necessarily a good thing.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure this is going to be a hit in the clubs. I’m sure all the boys and girls will be dancing their skinny jean asses off when this song comes on. I will not be one of them – mainly because I don’t own skinny jeans.

What do you think? Is the song a hit or miss?

you’re welcome.
