Aluna Francis: Fashion Profile

1 Aug

When you hear Aluna Francis sing you are transported into a futuristic daze, chilling with the beat and hearing what she has to say.

Having read my blog yesterday on AlunaGeorge’s debut album, Body Music, on Your Desirables you already know that I’m obsessed with everything this band has to offer.

It doesn’t just stop with the music – Aluna’s personal style is something just as special. I hate the word quirky so will avidly avoid it – Aluna does effortlessly sexy sports chic like no other.

With a lean supermodel body she certainly dresses to work it: short hems, shorts and crops all show off impressively long limbs and a washboard stomach.

Aluna always looks confident and comfy yet super stylish and bang on trend without looking like she’s trying too hard!

Spot The Ghetto Booty…

1 Jul

More and more I’m finding myself killing myself doing hundreds of squats a day and spending hours on my Bun & Thigh Wave Machine. Every sweaty, painful moment I’m wondering why I’m so obsessed with thick, toned ghetto booty’s but then instantly remember hot chickas such as Coco Austin, Khloe Kardashian, Beyoncé and, of course, the original booty queen herself -J Lo!

The accessory of the season is a perky, toned ass. Whether you like it or not it’s time to get that sexy hourglass shape ladies!

It’s nice to see a body shape being celebrated that isn’t a size 0!

Beyoncé – Is She Or Isn’t She?!

20 May

For days now speculation about whether Queen Bey is expecting a sibling for Blue Ivy have been circulating media airwaves…

Fans have been going crazy for the rumours and E! News have even confirmed the singer’s possible pregnancy on their reputable celeb site stating:

Blue Ivy‘s gonna be a big sis!

That’s right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News.”

Although the rest of the world may be celebrating, there is one person not so chuffed about the revelation – Mummy Bey!

Taking to Instagram she posted this:

“I can’t stop the rumours from starting, and I can’t really change peoples minds who believe them.”

She went on to say:

 “All I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.”

So IS SHE?! Or ISN’T SHE?! She may not be thrilled at us all speculating and wondering about her impending bump but she also needs to remember she is EVERYTHING TO US!

Did I go overboard?!…Sorry…

What do you think? Is the Queen about to bring another addition to the Carter empire?! Tweet me @sheldan2207 or comment below! Be sure to subscribe for updates!

Cara Cokes Up!

6 May

She’s used to everyone bitchin’ about her brows, not her nose…

For someone who allegedly drops a bag of cocaine on the floor in front of a million paps, Cara Delevigne seems in HIGH spirits as she jets to the US from Heathrow today (had to be done…)!

Taking after the one and only Kate Moss in more ways than one, Cara was returning home from a night of hard partying with her one and only wifey, Rita Ora when the little bag of white powder casually falls out of her handbag.

According to a source speaking to the Daily Mail Cara ‘very discreetly put her foot on it and then rolled her handbag across so it looked like she was just kind of bending over.”

It seems H&M are suitably unimpressed with Clumsy Cara saying, “We  have a zero tolerance policy towards  drugs, and  this also forms part of our advertising policy. Our team will evaluate the evidence over the  next few days. If the story is true, then we will take action.”

Top 5 Vocal Performances of the Moment

18 Apr

Some of my favourite songs of all time are usually ‘featuring’ a vocalist over the top of a killer beat, sexy strings or sultry melodies. My love for tracks with vocal performances from artists I haven’t previously heard of before has reached a new peak as my Top 5 favourite songs right now have me discovering some amazing new talent – all female, all young and fresh and about to set the game on fire!

5) Siobhan Leyden on Suburb by Static Noises

Research for this lady proved to be somewhat difficult as not only is she unsigned – she seems to be brand new to the scene! Her vocals on Suburb – a track about how suburban life can be a repetitive bore – has the piercing delivery of a Disney pop princess tinged with a London urgency complimenting the edgy vibe of the track.

Her other tracks uploaded onto her MySpace page (assuming I have the right girl!) have a pitch-perfect country-cool twang to them giving me hope that we will be hearing more from this girl very soon!

4) Maiday on Fade by Jakwob

  Every time I listen to this song it transforms me into a distant daydreamer. Maiday’s resolute lyrical sadness brings home a haunting vocal that delivers drama with an ethereal twist.

So I should have already heard of her already before! Her resume is impressive.

Other tracks you may know are ‘Don’t Go’ (Wretch 32 ft. Josh Kumra) – which she co-wrote and produced – and ‘Beautiful ‘Cause You Love Me’ (Girls Aloud) – which she wrote herself.

Her new video ‘Breathe’ is simply excellent: Relatable with anyone up against it needing a little shove to get life going again and to anyone who wants to appreciate a simply genius sound with genuinely heartfelt lyrics.

3) Sasha Keable on Only For Tonight by DJ Zinc

Sasha’s vocal on this track really gets me going for the weekend! Team her flirty voice with her cheeky smile in the vid and you’re onto a winner. I can’t get enough of this tune and I may also have a slight obsession with Sasha’s style also!

If you get a chance today – a chance or a moment where you want to sit back and chill out for a minute or three – take a listen to her track Sunday Amané. You can find it by clicking the Soundcloud link below. I promise it will be worth it – it’s stunning!

Judging by the posts on her Tumblr it seems she’s been stateside recording new material and chillin’ with the likes of Tinie Tempah so can’t wait to hear what’s next for her!

2) Ella Eyre on Waiting All Night by Rudimental

Emotive, seductive and full of purpose – Ella’s vocal gave me Goosebumps the very first time I heard this song. I didn’t need to hear it over and over to learn to love it – the song was instantly mine.

I didn’t think Rudimental could get any better after ‘Feel The Love’ and ‘Not Giving In’ but they recruited Ella and let loose ‘Waiting All Night’ – if the radio edit got you thinking she’s good you NEED to hear the Radio 1 Live Lounge version (link below)! Her vocal doesn’t waiver and if anything her live performance enhances her sensational, sultry voice. If you’re watching the link below someone commented on the vid saying, “I love Ella’s fire and raw’ness when performing also her sultry raspy voice is sumthn real sexy” – it sort of sums it up really!

1) A*M*E on ‘Need U (100%) by Duke Dumont

When A*M*E & Duke Dumont went to Number 1 in the UK Charts a couple of weeks ago it was clear it meant so much to her and listening to her interviews I feel we have a massive star in the making here!

Need U is such a huge tune with a lot of the focus on A*M*E’s fierce vocals! When the music is that good and the verses are that catchy there’s no holding back!

Her next track Heartless is out in June and I already have it on loop on Soundcloud! Click the link below to listen now! Massive sounds for the next big star!

UK Top 40 Raises Some Important Questions

3 Dec

The Top 40 Chart is broadcast live every Sunday here in the UK on BBC Radio 1.

I’m usually working my day job by the time the show starts which means I can listen to the whole rundown of this week’s most popular music.

It’s pretty much the highlight of my Sunday shift. Not much else is going on.

This week, though, there seems to be something wrong. The chart isn’t what it should be. Some of the songs involved are not exactly ground-breaking super-beats or heart-meltingly beautiful power ballads, which raises some very important questions:

(Answers on a tweet, comment, postcard)

1) Number 40 is a new entry from Athlete with ‘Wires’. One can only presume the world was reminded of this boring song when good ol’ Rylan performed it on the results show last week. Does this mean Rylan does actually have selling-power?

2) Ladywell Primary School are also new in at number 39 posing the obvious question of WHO?! Well ladies and gents I found out via Twitter yesterday that it is a cute little effort recorded in the school’s gym hall in memory of classmate Caden Beggan (via @FinllFixIt on Twitter). So, in order to raise even more money for meningitis research download the song on iTunes! Have you done your bit yet?

3) Imagine Dragons have entered the charts at numbers 35 AND 37! Well done you guys! The question here is… Who the heck are Imagine Dragons? Indie Rock band from Las Vegas with Alex Da Kid on production. Seems legit.

4) ‘Shine Ya Light’ by Rita Ora is still floating around the top 40 at number 34. For such an unoriginal, tedious song it’s spent an unimaginable amount of time rammed down our throats by continuous air time and stragetically placed ads on YouTube (everywhere). Who is still buying this song?

5) Any song with “tweedle-da-dee-dee-deeee” as lyrics should never chart. Even if you are McFly and only number 33. Sorry, lads.

6) Naughty Boy and Emeli Sande are only at number 32 with Wonder. Question here is; who is NOT buying this song?? Deserves to be much higher in the charts, especially when Taylor Swift, Psy and The Pogues are sitting higher up in the chart!

7) How much money does Mariah Carey make from ‘All I Want For Christmas’ every year? It’s only the 3rd of December and she’s already sitting pretty at number 30!

8) How much money do The Pogues make from yearly sales of ‘Fairytale of New York?’ It was hideous all those years ago, it is still hideous now. Whoever feels the need to buy this song every year may need to be mentally tested.

9) Who remembers Gold Dust?! DJ Fresh’s finest song (in my humble opinion) is back at number 25 and it still feels as epic as it’s first release, if not more, because not only is the original back with a bang, the Shy FX re-edit is NEW and is a flaming hot version of the original. It needs to get higher! Listen here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duZlM0-zHf8

10) Christina Perri is in at number 13. Is it just me or does ‘A Thousand Years’ sound pretty much the same as ‘Jar of Hearts’? Borin’ Hell!

11) K$sha at number 10? How loyal are her ‘animals’?? The song is poo, her singing ability needs to be questioned and we really need to figure out how many more alternations of Auto Tune we can tolerate. However, well done Kesha’s animals for getting her where she is today. The rest of humanity can’t work it out.

12) Gangnam Style is still in the Top 10. Fair dues to Psy who released a terrible, catchy-ass song. It was always bound to be a hit. Everyone loves a laugh. Yet, this has now been a 15-week-long laugh. PLEASE STOP BUYING THIS SONG. Many thanks xx

13) Gabrielle Aplin. Quite a cute tune. But number 6? Surely that should’ve been where Emeli Sande should’ve been? Maybe Adele? I’d even accept Robbie at number 6. Anyone else more deservant of this spot? Yawn fest.

14) We all really loved Diamonds. RiRi’s first good song since…well for a while. It’s catchy and makes you sing along in a weird faux-Barbadian accent. Then the radios got a hold of it and it was OK’d for every single station on planet Earth. Heart, Magic, Kiss, Choice, 1extra, Heat… In fact it was so overplayed it died an ugly death. Or so everyone thought. It’s BACK at number 3… probably because the more mature listeners think it’s brand new. Any other suggestions for this annoying climb up the chart?

15) Bruno Mars at number 2, Olly Murs at 1 (for a second week running). I do love a bit of Olly, but Bruno is perfect. As is ‘Locked Out of Heaven’. Quick swapsies?

Now that’s 15 life-changing, pretty serious questions about this week’s chart. In short, a huge rant from me. How do you see the charts? Just right? Or all wrong? Comment below and subscribe or tweet me @sheldan2207

Xtina, Pink & Rihanna: Pop Music Is B A C K

4 Oct

I’ve been gone a LONGGG time!! And I am so sorry! My day job really is becoming a pain in the butt; I’m definitely putting in around 50 hours a week at the moment. All I really wana be doing is blogging!! So today is my first day off in 9 days and I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY!

First of all… C H R I S T I N A ♡

In the words of Rihanna, “Where have you been all my lii-ii-iife!” Well, not all my life, but the past god knows how long. I mean ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better’ was Ok but THIS…

Let me explain. 5 days ago, Christina released her sexy new song ‘Your Body’ with a filthy vid to match. In the vid she looks absolutely drop dead gorg and I just can’t deal with THAT seductive walk, in THAT bodycon dress and in THOSE killer heels. Serious popgasm right about now.

If you haven’t seen this vid, check out the saucy minx and follow this link to her official YouTube channel to watch it! THEN buy it from Itunes because we all want Christina back in the charts, right!?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cfCgLgiFDM

Talking of smokin’ hot divas from yester-year back in the charts…

Pink’s new album (which is her sixth studio album – eek!) has topped the Billboard album chart in the US. How in God’s name is this her first number one album over there?! As the Kardashian’s would say, “Kray Kray!”

Pink’s track ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ is still in the Top 20 official UK chart at the moment at number 14 and her album is at number 3!

And, last but not least, the ever-transforming Rihanna. The music industry’s chameleon. ‘Diamonds’ is Ri-Ri’s brand new track and I’ve got to say, it may be one of her catchiest ever! I defy you to listen using the link below, then go the whole day without singing ‘shine bright like a diamond’! I dare ya!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOGBIbqXwYE

Music insiders are pinning ‘Diamonds’ to be number one in the UK on Sunday after sales went through the roof as soon as Capital FM aired the first play on 26th September.

So this means Christina, Ri-Ri and Pink are back dominating our charts with delectable new pop tunes?

Where’s Britney at?!

xx Peace xx
