Justin Bieber Videos

As I mentioned before Justin Bieber recently released his album Purpose. I featured Sorry as my Weekly Music Video the other week, you can watch it here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/weekly-music-video.html

Here are a few more videos from the album which are listed as PURPOSE: The Movement on YouTube.

First of all here is the video for No Sense featuring Travi$ Scott which is my favourite song on the album so far. It features some dancers; I think the same ones from Sorry. Justin doesn't appear in it but Travi$ does. I don't think Justin is in many of them because they're more about the dancers. It's not quite the full song.





And here's No Pressure featuring Big Sean, another one I like:




Also check out Company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neSv8fjmDB0

And Mark My Words which Justin features in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjUQjq1CBi0


Hope you like them. :) Which one is your favourite?

Weekly Music Video

Today's video (or rather song) is One Love by MONSTA X. They are a Korean boyband consisting of 7 members, leader Shownu (real name Son Hyun Woo), Wonho (Shin Ho Seok), Minhyuk (Lee Minhyuk), Kihyun (Yoo Kihyun), Hyungwon (Chae Hyungwon) and rappers Jooheon (Lee Joo Heon) and I.M. (Lim/Im Chang Kyun). The group were put together after the members won record label Starship Entertainment's survival show NO MERCY and debuted in May this year. They are label mates with girl group SISTAR, who were mentors on the show along with other Korean music acts. Starship have said that the name MONSTA X refers to monsters taking over K-pop music and also comes from the French words for "my" (Mon) and "star "Sta". X is meant to "symbolise an unknown existence".

Members of MONSTA X released singles with other artists as part of the show before debuting with the single Trespass and mini album of the same name on 14th May. In September they released their secon…

Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison

Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison is the British version of the popular American reality TV show Dance Moms. Like the American series it is centred on a dance school, this one is the Jennifer Ellison Fame Academy (JEDT) based at Jelli Studios in Liverpool and run by actress, dancer and singer Jennifer Ellison. It follows a similar format to Dance Moms, where every week the team take part in a competition. The second series is currently showing on Lifetime UK on Mondays at 9pm.

The members of the team are Tayluer Amos (who's been called the UK Maddie), Sam Dennis, Eleiyah Navis (big Eleiyah), Aleah Simpson (little Aleah), Chloe Fenton and current newest member Leah Rose.

Former cast members are Chloe Greenwood (aka Chloe Senior) her mum Carol and grandma Nana Linda, and Molly Thorpe Franklin and her mot…

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Ninguem by Angolan singer Perola. It's a fairly new song, the video was uploaded to YouTube in September. Perola's latest album is Mais De Min which was released this year. She's singing in Portuguese which is the official language of Angola.

According to Google Translate "Nimguem" translates as "No one". And the album title is "More of Me". The Spanish word for more is "mas" and Portuguese is similar, so it's probably quite accurate. If  anyone speaks Portuguese and wants to translate the Ninguem lyrics, please let me know! Hope you like the song. :)




P.S. I've found a couple of articles with more info about Perola. Her real name is Jandira Sassingui and she was born in Angola but moved to Namibia at 13. Here are the links:

New Releases/Music

I've been listening to more new music, so here's an update. :)

Justin Bieber's new album Purpose came out yesterday. You can listen on Spotify (sign-up or log-in): https://play.spotify.com/album/7fZH0aUAjY3ay25obOUf2a?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medium=open

It sounds good, I already like Where Are U Now (with Skrillex and Diplo) and Sorry and others I like are Company, No Pressure featuring Big Sean and No Sense featuring Travi$ Scott.

I also listened to The Weeknd's new album Beauty Behind The Madness. That came out in August but I hadn't listened to it yet! You can listen here: https://play.spotify.com/album/28ZKQMoNBB0etKXZ97G2SN?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medium=open

I liked a couple of songs on that, like Tell Your Friends and Prisoner featuring Lana Del Ray.

And BANKS' new single Better was my Weekly Music Video this week. Check it out here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/weekly-music-video_11.html

Weekly Music Video

This is Better, the new single by BANKS. It's from her new album which according to comments on YouTube is due out next year. I really like her first album GODDESS and that was released over a year ago, so I'm looking forward to hearing more new stuff. It's almost exactly 2 years since I first posted about her. Didn't realise it had been so long!

This is a haunting song that maybe takes a few listens to get used to but I like it. :)

Weekly Music Video

Ok, now the (extended) J-pop and K-pop month is over so back to normal scheduling! lol. It was fun though and I'll do more themed months in the future.

Today's video is the new one for Justin Bieber's single Sorry. He's not actually in this video; it's a group of girls dancing instead! The song is about apologising to a girl and saying that he's missing more than just her body. I'm guessing it's about his ex Selena Gomez but of course I don't know for sure, lol.

Justin's music seems to be more introspective lately after a difficult couple of years. He has anothr song called I'll Show You which is about how people see him a certain way because he's a celebrity and how he's behaved in the past but they forget that he's human just like everyone else. It's a good song, I may feature it another week. :)

For now here is Sorry (Dance Version). It's on his new album Purpose which is out on 13th November.
