Shawn Mendes Caught in a Blizzard Of Emotion in Chilly ‘It’ll Be Okay’ Video

0

The singer dropped the emotional video for his latest single on Thursday morning (Jan. 13).

Love can leave you cold, especially when it leads to heartbreak. That’s the simple message in the video for Shawn Mendes‘ emotional single “It’ll Be Okay.” The kind of blue ballad released in the wake of the singer’s high-profile November breakup with Camila Cabello after two-plus years of dating finally got a visual treatment on Thursday (Jan. 13), more than a month after Mendes dropped the song.

And like the track’s clear-eyed chronicle of lost love — on which Mendes sings, “If you tell me you’re leaving, I’ll make it easy/ It’ll be okay/ If we can’t stop the bleeding/ We don’t have to fix it/ We don’t have to stay/ I will love you either way/ Ooh-ooh, it’ll be oh, be okay” — the Jay Martin-directed clip keeps things uncomplicated.

In fact it consists entirely of Mendes slow-walking his way through his hometown of Toronto at night in the midst of a snowy night crooning the lyrics with not a single other person around to hear his laments. “Oh, if the future we’ve dreamed of is fading to black/ I will love you either way,” he sings as the song’s piano coda wells up and he slows to a crawl in a dimly lit alleyway.

The song marks Mendes’ first solo music release since his fourth studio album Wonder, which came out in Dec. 2020, and topped the Billboard 200. He’ll be taking Wonder all around the world during his 2022 tour, which kicks off its European leg in spring before heading Stateside next summer with openers Dermot Kennedy and Tate McRae.

0

Ha llegado el gran día que todos los seguidores de Bruno Mars han estado esperando. Mucho tiempo ha pasado desde que en el año 2016 el artista lanzase al mundo el que sería su último proyecto discográfico durante unos cuantos años, ’24k Magic’. Un trabajo con el que volvió a escribir su nombre una vez más en lo más alto de los charts musicales a nivel mundial, objetivo que pretende repetir, ahora, con ‘A evening with Silk Sonic’.

La espera ha terminado y por fin, tras varios meses en los que Mars y su banda han ido presentando al mundo pequeñas perlas musicales de lo que se vendría con su nuevo disco, ‘A evening with Silk Sonic’ ya está disponible en todas las plataformas de streaming y en formato físico.Una nueva era musical con un sonido diferente a lo que el intérprete tiene acostumbrado a su público, pero donde la esencia de Bruno Mars sigue inconfundible en todas y cada unas de las canciones.

Se trata de un nuevo trabajo que cuenta en su tracklist con un total de 9 canciones que conquistan desde la primera reproducción. Una composición que da el pistoletazo de salida con el tema ‘Silk Sonic Intro’ y que culmina como broche de oro con el sencillo ‘Blast Off’.

Asimismo, como no podía ser de otra manera, en esta nueva producción se encuentran los adelantos musicales que Bruno Mars ha ido estrenando durante las últimas semanas, ‘Leave the door open’, ‘Skate’ y ‘Smokin out the window’, siendo este último sencillo lanzado hace tan solo una semana y manteniéndose como una de los videoclips más vistos del momento en Youtube.

El estreno del disco ha sido recibido con los brazos abiertos por los fans, demostrando nuevamente las ganas que tenían de poder disfrutar de un álbum completo de Bruno y su banda. Un nuevo trabajo que fue creado en tiempos de pandemia mundial y con el que Bruno Mars y Anderson Paak han dejado claro que la espera ha merecido la pena.

Sabemos que la Navidad se acerca cuando comienzan a sonar los acordes de All I Want For Christmas de Mariah Carey. Y es que se ha convertido en uno de los villancicos esenciales que no pueden faltar en esta época más festiva del año.

La Navidad para muchos comienza cuando Halloween llega a su fin, y en el caso de Mariah Carey no iba a ser menos. La artista ha anunciado a través de un vídeo en redes sociales que la última fiesta del año ha empezado, así que ya nos podemos preparar para los cascabeles.

En el vídeo, vemos cómo la artista destroza una de las calabazas de Halloween alumbradas. En concreto, la que dice «not» y que forma parte de la frase «It’s not time». Porque para ella, el momento ha llegado. Posteriormente, se escuchan los primeros acordes de su tan conocido villancico mientras Mariah aparece en un ambiente de lo más navideño.

En el avance que hemos podido escuchar, parece que Fall in Love At Christmasserá una bonita balada que hablará de enamorarse de nuevo en Navidad.

Lo cierto es que ya en la última semana de octubre, Carey calentaba motores para su época favorita del año en redes sociales. Compartió un vídeo en el que una joven llevaba una sudadera con una Mariah Carey navideña y en dibujo animado. «Get Festive» son las palabras que se pueden leer. «¡Mira lo que he encontrado hoy! ¿Puedo usarla?», le pregunta la chica. Ella le responde con un «Todavía no». Pero ahora sí que sí: Mariah ha vuelto.

All I Want For Christmas vio la luz en el año 1994. Se incluyó en su disco Merry Christmas y, desde entonces, se ha convertido en un verdadero himno internacional. En diciembre de 2020, volvió a llegar al número 1 de la lista de canciones Billboard Hot 100.

Elton John FT Nicky Minaj, Young Thug ‘Always Love You’

The much awaited collaboration between Elton John, Young Thug and Nicki Minaj is finally here

.

Fans were quite excited about this song when it was announced as part of the track list for Elton’s new album The Lockdown Sessions which comes out in full tonight (Friday) across all DSPs. The lead single with Dua Lipa, ‘Cold Heart‘ is out right now and doing quite well.

“I never thought you would end up as the enemy / I always thought you’d be right here, still defending me / I feel so bad for you, lost your identity / Made your decision, it’s a penalty / It’s so hard for me to understand,” raps Nicki on her verse.

“This was one of two songs I wrote the first day I spent in the studio with Andrew Watt, but it began its life as very much an Elton John song and I didn’t really like it, it needed something. And that’s what Andrew did, he chopped up the song and moved the chorus to the beginning, and put on a track that a rapper would use – it was brilliant! That’s when we got Young Thug involved. I’ve admired Young Thug for a while and he sampled one of my songs on his track, High, back in 2018 so it was great to collaborate again,” said Elton about the track.

“And then, I was so pleased when Nicki agreed to do it. I’m very grateful to have such talented artists from a totally different genre to me on this album and that they’ve included me,” the legendary artist continued. Listen to the impressive song below.

Brits’ ninth album takes us beyond our planet with luxury collaborations.

They are already here. The members of Coldplay have finished their journey through new musical horizons and have put their feet on the ground to bring us their new album, Music of the Spheres. It’s quite a sidereal journey with the deluxe collaborations of BTS (My Universe), Selena Gomez (Let Somebody Go) and Jacob Collier and We Are KING on Human Heart.

This disc contains 12 tracks, which form a truly original tracklist: 5 of them are emojis, as they advanced weeks ago.

The keyboard and the voices of Chris Martin and Selena Gómez are the protagonists of this slower and more emotional song. Letting go of a loved one, as its title indicates and the lyrics relate, is as hard as turning off all the stars. «When everything is wrong, you can turn sadness into a song.»

The Weeknd es un artista que lo tiene muy claro y sabe que si él para el mundo también se para. Por eso, mientras prepara su propio proyecto televisivo, el artista ha dado el próximo paso dentro de su carrera profesional. El canadiense tiene todo lo que necesita para publicar el disco que sucederá a su exitoso ‘After hours’.

A principios del mes de agosto ya pudimos escuchar su última canción ‘Take my breath’ y ayer, en un nuevo episodio de su podcast ‘Memento mori’, The Weekndcompartió algunos detalles del que se convertirá en su nuevo disco: «Han pasado muchas cosas. Ha habido mucho movimiento», explicaba el artista, «Me he mudado a una nueva casa, he grabado vídeos y he estado trabajando en producciones para todo el mundo», relataba el artista, adelantando que algo grande está por pasar.

Y es que ha asegurado que el álbum ya está completo y que lo único que le falta son un par de retoques que solo un par de personas cercanas a él pueden darle. Ha sido un poco ambiguo a la hora de hablar sobre estas personas, pero si que ha detallado que le inspiraron cuando él era pequeño y que siguen inspirándole en la actualidad. La verdad es que no tenemos ni la más remota idea de a quién se está refiriendo, pero parece que son imprescindibles para el proceso de finalización del disco, que no va a tardar mucho en llegar.

Elton John and Steve Wonder release a new single

0

Sir Elton John says his new song with Stevie Wonder is «one of the greatest songs» he’s ever written.

The ‘Rocket Man’ hitmaker and the ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours’ singer – who have been friends for five decades – have released the track ‘Finish Line’ from the former’s star-studded ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ LP, which is released on October 22.

The pair previously teamed up on a cover of ‘That’s What Friends Are For’ with Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight back in 1985.

And the 74-year-old music legend explained how the new duet – which is produced by Andrew Watt – happened entirely behind «accident», but turned out to be his one of his favourite tunes he’s ever released.

Speaking to studio wizard Andrew on Elton’s Rocket Hour on Apple Music 1, the ‘Tiny Dancer’ hitmaker said: «This track I did with Stevie Wonder is a very unusual way of writing. Usually, I write to lyrics, but I wrote the melody first in the studio, and then your girl put lyrics to it.

«And then Stevie came along and played piano. I played electric piano, and then he did harmonica on it. And then we were trying to get another vocalist on it and he wouldn’t do it because I think he thought he’d done enough. And then you put the gospel choir on, Kanye West Gospel Choir on it.

«And I think when Stevie heard that he decided to do the vocal. And I think for me, it’s one of the greatest records I’ve ever made. Because A, it’s Stevie Wonder, and you made Stevie sound like a 17-year-old again. And the sheer joy in his voice, it was magical, magical, the way this thing came together was a series of accidents in a way.

«I’m so proud of this record because I love him so much. He’s always been so kind to me and so sweet to me, the talent is beyond ridiculous.

«And it was just lovely to spend time with him and just see this wonderful human being smiling and happy and playing on a record of mine.»

Speaking of the song, Stevie, 71, said Elton’s «wisdom, pain, soul, love, and resilience» can be felt throughout.

He said: «It is both a joy and honor to sing, play piano and harmonica for Elton! He has truly been one of the great spirits of music, life, friendship and love, who I’ve met on this life journey! True artistry and music like love equals a forever commitment lasting many lifetimes. And Elton, anyone who hears your voice singing «Finish Line», will hear and feel your wisdom, your pain, your soul, your love, but also your resilience….. I love it!! Congratulations to you and our forever and never, never-ending music, friendship, life-song! Long live Sir Elton John!!! (big smiley face!) (sic)»

‘The Lockdown Sessions’ also features tracks with the likes of Brandi Carlile, Charlie Puth, Dua Lipa, Eddie Vedder, Gorillaz, Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rina Sawayama, SG Lewis, Stevie Nicks, and Young Thug.
