Weekly Music Video

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a good one. :)

Today's video is Red Love by Pia Mia.  Her full name is Pia Mia Perez and she's from Guam. Pia started out by recording videos of herself singing and uploading them to YouTube. She went on to work with music producer Nic Nic and released a free mixtape called The Gift in December 2013. Red Love is on The Gift and was her debut single. Pia also covered Drake's song Hold On, We're Going Home.

Last February she released The Gift on iTunes but it only had 6 songs rather than the 8 which were on the free version. That same month she signed to Interscope Records and in May brought out the single Mr. President. Her debut album is due out this year.

Red Love was released on 9th December 2013 in the US. Commenters on YouTube think the song is about losing your virginity to your first love and then him leaving you once he's got what he wanted.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
