Jessica Mauboy: Burn

Riding high off the success of the first single, Jessica Mauboy‘s “Burn” is now impacting Australian radio. Like the first single, “Burn” is quite modern in terms of production, and equally addictive upon replay. It’s a bit more up-tempo, a…

Rie Fu: Romantic

Long time, no listen! In fact, I haven’t heard anything about Rie Fu for a while now! The bilingual beauty is back with a new single entitled “Romantic,” and it’s simply lush. In fact, with those echoing dance beats and…

Sugababes: No Can Do

In perhaps their greatest video yet, the Sugababes get their high fashion on in a man-tastic celebration of masculine inadequacy. Seriously, the girls look S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G here. Anyone have the director’s name yet? Anyway, shove together some glamourous gowns, a bucketful…

Boa: Eat You Up

At long last, BoA‘s American debut track “Eat You Up” has found its way onto the net! As suggested through the preview clips, its a pretty bold, bassy stomper. Benefiting from some nice Bloodyshy & Avant vocal gymnastics, the bridge…

On Womanizer…

Now that I’ve got my thoughts in order: “Womanizer,” at first listen, is not nearly as immediate as Britney‘s previous “comeback” single. It is jaunty, erratic, and overly repetitive; a far cry from the dark, thumping disco of “Gimme More.”…
