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.



Weekly Music Video

This week's video is It Was Love, the latest single by LANY. This is the official audio. If there's a video in the future I'll update this post. :)

It Was Love was released earlier this month. It's from LANY's  self titled debut album, which is due out on 30th June and available for pre-order now.

New K-pop Releases

I've been watching more K-pop lately, so here are some of the new releases from the past month. :)



MONSTA X- Beautiful

Boyband MONSTA X 's latest is single Beautiful. It came out in March so it's not brand new but it's only a month old. :) It's from their latest album The Clan Pt. 2.





Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Text From Your Ex by Tinie Tempah featuring Tinashe. It's from his new album Youth (his third) which came out at the end of March.

Tinashe doesn't appear in the video. I didn't realise it was her when I saw the video on a music channel. They didn't even credit her! It's cool that she's working with Tinie.

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is PYD by Justin Bieber  featuring American singer R. Kelly. PYD stands for "Put You Down" and it's from Justin's 2013 digital only album Journals.

I listened to this a lot when I first bought it and recently started listening to it again. It's a good song. :) This is a lyric video because it was never released as a single.

IT Remake

I've been hearing about the IT remake for ages and now it's actually getting closer! lol. It's a film remake of the 1990 TV mini series IT, which was based on the book by Stephen King. If you were a child/teenager in the 90s you probably remember seeing it in the video shop like I did, lol. The book tells the tale of 7 kids who battle Pennywise, the evil clown/interdimensional demon! Check out my post on the TV version here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/halloween-films.html

While I'm a fan of the mini series I've never read the book. I've been planning to read it for ages but not got round to it. I've seen people online saying that the book is better than the TV version. I think in the new movie they may have bits that were in the book but weren't in the 1990 version. From what I've seen so far the basic storyline seems similar, although it's set in 1989.  The mini series has two parts, it's set in 1960 when the kids are aged a…

Weekly Music Video

This is Destur, the new one by Turkish singer Tu─čba Yurt. It came out on 29th March. I'm not sure what "Destur" means in English but in the Facebook translation it keeps saying "Watch". If you're a Turkish speaker please let me know. :)





K-pop Female Solo Stars

I've mentioned before that for some reason I tend to know more Japanese solo singers rather than groups and more Korean groups rather than solo singers! Well that's changing now, I'm getting to know more Korean singers and Japanese bands.  So today I decided to do a post on K-pop female solo singers. :)

Note: Korean names are written with the surname first.


Hyolyn

Hyolyn (real name Kim Hyo-jung) aka Hyorin is a member of the girl group SISTAR and its sub-unit SISTAR19. She debuted as a solo artist last October with the single Love Like This featuring rapper DOK2. The singles One Step featiring Korean American rapper/singer Jay Park and Paradise followed in November. Her debut EP It's Me was released on 8th November, the same day as Paradise. Hyolyn also featured on American group Far East Movement's single Umbrella, along with Taiwanese music producer Gill Chang.
