Nelly Furtado – “The Ride” Album Breakdown

Filed under Reviews

Nelly Furtado releases her 6th studio album The Ride tomorrow, March 31st. Released independently through her own record label Nelstar, The Ride sees Nelly experiment with a new sound while still sounding like a Nelly Furtado album.

All 12 tracks on The Ride are produced by John Congleton. The vocal production and Nelly’s singing style are a lot less grating than 2012’s Spirit Indestructible which often verged on screeching.

The highlights are Carnival Games, Magic, Arlissa cover Sticks And Stones and closing ballad Phoenix which was the first track Nelly recorded for the album and shows off a different singing style for Nelly.

Here’s a breakdown of the tracks:

Cold Hard Truth
Carnival Games
Paris Sun
Sticks And Stones
Pipe Dreams
Tap Dancing
Right Road

Little Mix – “No More Sad Songs” Video Premiere

Published March 30th 2017

Little Mix have premiered the video for No More Sad Songs – the third single to be taken from their fourth album Glory Days.

The video is set in an American country bar where the girls turn up looking completely out of place but end up dancing on the bar Coyote Ugly style and riding on a mechanical bull. Machine Gun Kelly shows up and actually made the effort to be on set at the same time as Little Mix.

While not much happens in the video, it’s shot really well and it’s a lot of fun – it’s so much better than the disastrous Touch video.

ZAYN has released his first single Still Got Time featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR from his upcoming second album.

Compared to ZAYN’s previous material, Still Got Time is upbeat and instantly catchy. It’s a lot less intense than most of Mind of Mine.

The lyric video for Still Got Time has been uploaded to ZAYN’s VEVO. Take a listen below:

Zara Larsson – “So Good” Album Breakdown

Zara Larsson’s sophomore album So Good has finally been released.

It really should’ve been ready to drop after Lush Life to capitalise on its success but at least we got an album eventually.

The highlights are Lush Life, What They Say, TG4M and I Can’t Fall In Love Without You.

Overall it’s a solid debut but could’ve done without Only You, Ain’t My Fault and So Good – even though the latter two were bad singles.

Here’s a breakdown of the tracks:

What They Say
Lush Life
I Would Like
So Good (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)
Only You
Never Forget You
Sundown (feat. Wizkid)
Don’t Let Me Be Yours
Make That Money Girl
Ain’t My Fault
One Mississippi
I Can’t Fall In Love Without You
