I've been surprised by just how much I've enjoyed MS MR'sSecondhand Rapture album considering how they're a Tumblr band and all. It's just so damn big and hooky that it always pulls me in whenever I remember that it's on Spotify. One of the best cuts is "Think of You," which just got the single treatment with the premiere of its official music video.
It's been over five years since Aly & AJ started recording their third studio album, and four years since they changed their name to 78Violet and split from Hollywood Records. It's been so long that it was starting to look like the duo may never make another record again, but I'm relieved to say that they're back with a new single called "Hothouse," and it sounds every bit as good a grown up Aly & AJ single should sound.
Janelle Monae is everything and she has been since the first Metropolis EP dropped. She will likely continue being everything for the forseeable future and beyond. This is a simple fact that cannot be argued, so don't even try come for Janellegend Monet's luscious weave or you'll be staring down the barrel of Duke Nukem's shotgun.
In case you couldn't tell, I'm back on #TeamCiCi. I have been since "Body Party" took off and Cisus scored the cover of The Fader, therefore making her cool again after her dusty outdated ass spent the last couple years as the major of Pleasantville.
