Weekly Music Video

Zayn aka ZAYN (former One Direction) has a new song out called BeFoUr. He just released his debut album Mind of Mine this month.

Zayn's debut single Pillowtalk was his first solo No 1 in the UK and also in other countries including Ireland, the US, Australia and Sweden. I don't think BeFoUr is an official single release (more of a promotional single) but you can find it on Mind of Mine and I expect you can also buy it separately on iTunes, Amazon etc.






New Ariana Grande Songs

Ariana Grande is set to release her third album Dangerous Woman in May and has uploaded two new songs to YouTube, Dangerous Woman and Be Alright. I personally wasn't a huge fan of her first album Yours Truly, I like The Way featuring Mac Miller and Right There featuring her ex-boyfriend Big Sean but wasn't that keen on the other songs on it. But I really like her second album My Everything and these songs sound good, so I'm looking forward to the album release. :)


Here's Dangerous Woman:



And Be Alright. It's only's 2 minutes 57, so I wasn't sure if it was the full song but I think it is.



My favourite song is Be Alright. :) If you'd like to hear Ariana sing Dangerous Woman acapella (without music) check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVYTzauIb_4

It's an actual video of her singing.

I also found out that Ariana released a Christmas EP called Christmas and Chill in December. You can listen to it on Spotify (login or sign-up): Ariana Grand…

Today's video is Last Dance by Dua Lipa. She is a British singer with Albanian heritage who was born in London, moved to Kosovo with her parents and then later came back to the UK on her own. She attended the famous Sylvia Young Theatre School and has also modelled.

Dua released her debut single New Love last August, followed by Be the One in October. Last Dance is her third single. Her debut album is set for release this year.

Last Dance is the first song of Dua's I've heard, I saw the video on the music channels recently. It's an interesting song and video. It looks she's doing some belly dance type moves. Last Dance came out last month.

Nisha Kothari and Emraan Hashmi Videos

Sorry the post is later this weekend; I wasn't feeling that well yesterday and got a bit behind. :)

A couple of months ago I did a post of videos featuring Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi. I felt like doing another Bollywood post so thought today I would feature some videos with actress Nisha Kothari in and a couple more with Emraan too. :)

Nisha's real name is Priyanka but she is known as Nisha in Bollywood. She started out as a model before also acting in Kollywood (Tamil language) and Tollywood (Telugu language) films, where she was known as Amoha. One of her most well known Bollywood films is Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag  (2007). She has also acted in Kannada movies.

Nisha has a "sex symbol" type of image. She doesn't appear to have acted since 2013, so I'm not sure what she's doing these days.

Nisha was an item girl in Darling, performing to the song Aa Khushi Se Khudkhusi Kar Le with Fardeen Khan. Check out the video here:  http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.u…

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Think by Korean rapper and singer Reddy and featuring Korean American rapper Jay Park. I can't find a lot of info on Reddy but I think he's on the South Korean record label Hi-Lite (which has now merged with entertainment agency Cj E& M) and is part of the Korean rap group The Cohort. Or he was a member, according to comments online he might have left.

Think was released in February. I first heard it the other day and included it in my latest New Music/Videos post.

Here is Christina Milian's new song Rebel. (Well, newish! lol). It's from her EP 4U which came out in December. I think it's a promotional single rather than an official release.

Rebel is my current favourite song.  Please note that the version of the song in the video isn't the explicit version but it still has a sexual theme. :)

More Fave Female Solo Singers

Just over a year ago (I didn't realise it had been so long!) I did a post on my Top 10 Female Solo Singers. Now I thought I'd do a follow up post on more female solo singers I like. Hope you like it! :)


Namie Amuro

Namie (known as Namie Amuro or Amuro Name in the Japanese way with the surname first) is one of my favourite Japanese singers, along with Koda Kumi (see Top 10 Female Solo Singers post). She's had a long running career, starting out with the girl group Super Monkey's in the early 90s and then releasing solo singles from 1995 onwards.

Her latest album is _genic which came out last June. It's her 12th studio solo album and her first with mostly English songs. I have it and my favourite song is Golden Touch. You can watch videos from _genic here:

Namie's latest single is Red Carpet (her 41st solo single). It has a B-side, the song Black Make Up and was released in December.

Here's …

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is The Waking Eye by Leaves' Eyes. It's from their latest album King of Kings which came out last September. I don't think it was released as a single, they haven't released many singles. (Only one according to Wikipedia!). They mostly bring out albums and EPs.

Commentors on YouTube pointed that Liv and Alexander's son is in the video. :)
