Jennifer Lopez- Dame Lyrics and Translation

In February I did a post with the lyrics for Nelly Furtado's song Te Busque. It has some Spanish lyrics and I had a go at translating them. I enjoyed that, so I decided to have a go with one my favourite singers Jennifer Lopez's songs. It's called Dame (Touch Me) and is a duet with Puerto Rican-American singer Chayanne. It appeared on her 2nd album J.Lo (2001).

I used Google Translate, a couple of other online translation sites and my old Spanish dictionary for help! I had a bit of trouble with the title, "Dame" comes out as "give to me" on Google Translate but since the song is also called "Touch Me" I'm going to presume that's what they're singing. I got the lyrics from Letssingit.com. They're in  the CD booklet too but I also found a lyrics video on YouTube where some of them have an extra bit added or slightly different to what's written in the booklet. It does sound like what they're actually singing in the song, s…

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Champagne Problems by Nick Jonas. It's from his forthcoming album Last Year Was Complicated, which is due out on 10th June. It's not an actual single I don't think, just a promo one for the new album.





Also check out Nick's new single with Swedish singer Tove Lo, Close:  http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/weekly-music-video.html

Katy B's Honey Album

In January I posted about British singer Katy B's  single Calm Down which was the first to be released from her new album Honey. Over the past few months she's released more songs and now the album has come out and is available to listen to Spotify and to buy on iTunes.

As well as Calm Down, I'd previously heard Honey, I Wanna Be  and Who Am I. My favourite songs are I Wanna Be and Chase Me. (I couldn't listen to the new version of Turn The Music Louder because it wasn't available on Spotify but I'll try iTunes instead.

Here's the video for I Wanna Be with producer Chris Lorenzo:



And here's Katy's Spotify link: Katy B- Spotify



What are your favourite songs on the album?

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is L.A. LOVE (la la) by Fergie featuring rapper Y.G. It was Fergie's last single and came out in September 2014. Celebrities feature in the video including comedian Chelsea Handler and TV presenter/singer Kelly Osbourne. One of my favourite Japanese singers Koda Kumi also appears at the end of the video. (I wasn't sure if she was one of the geishas in it). Fergie and Koda previously worked togethger on Koda's song That Ain't Cool.

There's no news on Fergie's second solo album yet but I'll post when I hear anything. :)




More Dua Lipa Videos

The other week I featured British Albanian singer Dua Lipa's video for her single Last Dance as my Weekly Music Video. I've been listening to more of her songs and I thought today I'd share a couple more in this post. :)

First of all here is New Love which was Dua's debut single and came out last August.





 And then here is her second single Be The One. It came out in October.




Which is your favourite? I think I like Be The One slightly more. :)

Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Too Deep by R I T U A L and featuring one of my favourite singers, Delilah. I can't find much info on R I T U A L but I think they are a British band.

I first heard Too Deep on Soundcloud a couple of months ago but then for some reason it said it was no longer available here. You can still listen on YouTube though. :)  It's a haunting, mysterious song that apparently was used for the American TV series Teen Wolf. (I used to watch that but they stopped showing it in the UK after two series, which was annoying!). * Too Deep came out in October.

LA Clippers Dance Squad

I'm a fan of the American reality TV shows Dance MomsBring It! and Step It Up. (Also the British TV series Dance Mums UK). A similar show has just started in the UK called LA Clippers Dance Squad, so I've been watching that. The series follows the dance squad for the basketball team LA Clippers, based in Los Angeles. The squad features 20 girls, team captain Kellie, co-captain Athena, Natalie, Hannah,  Blair, Savanna, Walesska, Haley, Karissa,  Taylor, Gabrielle, Candace, Amber, Brooke, Tatum, Mariah, Brianna, Sharon, Tyra and Bernadette. Petra Pope is the creative director of the team and Latrice Gregory is the choreographer.

The main members featured are rookie Athena Perample who has ruffled feathers with the other girls because she's been made team captain despite having just joined, veteran Kellie Jankesi who has a lot of responsiblity due to being team captain and also had to deal with her mum's death recently, Natalie Tenerelli, another veteran who has been s…
