Love Never Felt So Good!

Almost five years after the King of Pop Michael Jackson passed away, a new album suddenly emerged on iTunes.

Simply called ‘Xscape‘, the ‘new’ album showcases some unheard and unreleased tracks that was customized by collaborators. It is such a joy to discover that a collaboration between Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake happened. Among the male popstars today, I think only Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars are worth tagging as the ‘Prince of Pop’.

This feel-good song originally recorded in 1983 (I wasn’t born yet!) made me smile and dance when I heard it for the first time. The power of a true artist is so strong and it is just unbelievable that hearing MJ’s voice automatically puts every fan in a positive mood.

I have another reason to be happy with this new release. Lalala Love never felt soooo goood! 😀

Sorry for this very short post. I still have some backlogs to work on related to my birthday and other important things, but I am just too eager to share this one! 😀

My Top 5 Favorite Yeng Constantino Hits

One of the challenges faced by graduates of reality-based singing contest is longevity. The viewers may root for you during the contest duration, but album and concert tickets sale determines if you’re bound to stay long in the business or be tagged as a ‘one hit wonder’.

Why I Love Jessie J’s ALIVE album

Jessie J is truly one of the most talented artists from the United Kingdom. My curiosity about this woman started when I first saw the music video for “Do It Like a Dude”. This girl is fearless, unique and she can definitely sing! Her first single is one of the songs that you’d sing if you want to feel extra confident or have that ‘swag’ feel in an instant.

I Love Jessie J - with or without the hair! :P

Later on, she released the worldwide hit ‘Price Tag’ and elevated her status from a newbie to a top-selling artist. When her prolonged debut album “Who You Are” was finally released, the fans went mental and sang her songs with passion. Some of the singles released include Nobody’s Perfect, Who’s Laughing Now, Who You Are, Domino and Laser Light.

Jessie J gained more followers after her exposure as a resident judge in The Voice UK. She may have this angsty image at first, but she was able to show the public how sweet and endearing she is in person.

Her sophomore album ‘ALIVE’ was released last September in the UK. Prior to the official launch, I got the chance to listen to some of the songs like Wild, Hero, Magnetic, Excuse My Rude and It’s My Party. The last song I mentioned is very special to me. In fact, it is one of the songs that I’ve memorized in 30 minutes! Too bad I still can’t reveal why… but soon you will know why :)
