WHERE THEM MUUSERS AT?
Last week, superstar DJ David Guetta released his fifth studio album Nothing But The Beat, which rocketed to #5 on this week’s Billboard 200 albums chart–his first ever Top 10 Billboard debut.
Just as with his last studio album, One Love, Guetta’s latest release features collaborations from some of music’s hottest hit-makers, including “Where Them Girls At? (feat. Flo-Rida & Nicki Minaj),” “Sweat (feat. Snoop Dogg),” “Night Of Your Life (feat. Jennifer Hudson)” and of course “Titanium,” the explosive Sia-penned dance floor annihilator that became an instant favorite of the year here at MuuMuse.
Nothing But The Beat is the perfect companion to a killer night out, complete with celebratory dance floor anthems, filthy-mouthed throb fests, and of course, incredibly bangin’ beats. It’s simply a must!
To celebrate the album’s release, MuuMuse is proud to be giving away 3 copies of David Guetta’s new record, Nothing But The Beat.
I want to dance to NOTHING BUT THE BEAT with @MuuMuse!
Three winners will be randomly selected and notified on Wednesday, September 14. Good luck!
It was right after she first began posting demos on her MySpace–songs like 2007′s spacey “Surveillance” (which remains as next level today as it did the day she unleashed it upon the world), that I first took notice of Wynter Gordon, the 23-year-old underdog with a superstar’s worth of potential waiting to be unleashed each time she lays a pen to paper.
Just a few years after graduating from LaGuardia’s High School for the Performing Arts (alma mater of such notable acts as Kelis and Nicki Minaj), the young songstress had already notched herself a major writing credit with “Gonna Breakthrough,” a song from Mary J. Blige‘s Grammy Award-winning seventh studio album, The Breakthrough.
Ever since then, the co-writes and features (and unfortunately, the myriad leaks) only kept flowing for Wynter securing a spot on Danity Kane‘s 2008 sophomore record, Welcome To The Dollhouse (“2 Of You”), penning the impossibly catchy chorus of Flo-Rida‘s chart-topping 2009 radio smash “Sugar” and David Guetta‘s “Toyfriend,” joining The Freemasons on their essential 2010 summer jam “Believer” and, most recently, scribing three tracks off of Jennifer Lopez‘s stellar 2011 comeback record LOVE? including title track, “(What Is) Love?”
But despite all of her success as a writer, the song that truly launched Wynter as an artist in her own right was 2010′s “Dirty Talk,” a filthy-mouthed foray into kinky taunts and raunchy references to S&M above a dark disco beat that debuted nearly a year before Rihanna ever started crooning about her enthusiasm for chains and whips.
The song not only notched the singer’s first-ever #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play stateside, but kept her straddling Australia’s ARIA Chart at #1 for three weeks in January (and the duration of Australia’s summer season).
Now, nearly four years since she first started making ripples across the blogosphere and beyond, the Queens-born singer/songwriter has finally released her long-awaited, much delayed debut: The fabulously titled With The Music I Die.
You may not realize it, but you’ve already been listening to Myah Marie.
But beyond the demos, Marie is also the actual background vocalist for both “Hold It Against Me” (watch her sing it acapella!) and “Till The World Ends,” Britney’s lead singles from Femme Fatale, as well as throughout 2008′s Circus.
After releasing a smattering of pop singles over the years (including 2009′s feature on Ron Reeser & Dan Saenz‘ trance hit “Everything” and 2010′s glorious dance-pop track “Chemistry”), Marie is now stepping out for her latest solo venture: A feature on the brand new Laze & Royal track, “You & Me.”
Singing that insanely infectious chorus of The Bloodhound Gang‘s “The Bad Touch,” Marie spices up the North Cali hip-hop duo’s latest single, produced by Richard Vission.
Into electroshock therapy? Questionably sexual poses with meat? You’re in luck! Check out the newly released video for the song above.
Much like Ke$ha was to Flo-Rida‘s “Right Round,” so too is Ms. Marie to Laze & Royal’s “You & Me.” Will the feature lead to the same exposure to mainstream listeners? We shall soon find out!
The Saturdays performed their latest single, “Higher” on ITV’s Lorraine yesterday morning. And guess what? It was kind of really fucking good! (VIDEO)
Sure the dance moves are suspect and the styling unfortunate, but each Saturday basically nailed their own bits–even the tough ones! I know I was holding my breath when Una was building up for that really ambitious, super screamy note at the very tippy-top of the song’s bridge–but she did it!
YES, MAMACITAS! Now make a new album (and don’t put Flo-Rida on anything ever again).
“Higher” will be released on October 31. (iTunes UK)
In America, we pop nerds have a tendency to bitch and moan about the general makeup of the Top 40 charts: It’s nothing but the same producers, cluttering the airwaves with the same, predictable paint-by-numbers dance-tinged hip-hop. Far too much Flo-Rida and Jay Sean; not nearly enough Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
Well, my dear Muusers…when the digital singles charts are published later tonight, this song will become the number one song in France, according to Sony Music.
This is “Mignon Mignon,” sung by RenÃ© La Taupe (or RenÃ© the Mole).
RenÃ© La Taupe is an animated mole.
“Mignon Mignon” is essentially a Hi-NRG remix of “If You’re Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands” (with a reggae beat vaguely reminiscent of Paris Hilton‘s “Stars Are Blind.” I digress.)
Having another mindless Taio Cruz tune on top of the charts doesn’t quite seem so bad now, does it?
