Review: SoMo, ‘SoMo’


SoMo’s major label debut leaves the listener underwhelmed  SoMo • SoMo • Republic • US Release Date: April 8, 2014 YouTube has become the ‘it’ means of being discovered as an artist these days.

Viral Share: Peter Hollens and Sam Tsui Deliver Cool Katy Perry Cover


When I reviewed Katy Perry’s PRISM, one of my very favorite songs (besides “Roar”) was current number one single, “Dark Horse”, featuring Juicy J.  Definitely laden with swag, Katy Perry’s current single has hip-hop, crossover appeal.  As much as I love the original, there is one cool cover via YouTube by vocalist Peter Hollens, who…

Austin Mahone Is An Artist Trending Up


Teen pop is something that has truly irked me over the years – badly! Something about young, cocky, good-looking heartthrobs being proclaimed to be the ‘second coming’ of music just doesn’t appeal nor sit well with me.  Yeah, maybe I’m just jealous I couldn’t get the attention all the girls give to these guys, but honestly…

This viral video from Matt Peterson (from January 31, 2014),  caught my attention via Ryan Seacrest.  Take a look for yourself… Peterson did this video up in true Miley fashion – nudity, foam finger, and tongue.  Think back to the VMAs and of course the infamous “Wrecking Ball” video. Sigh, Miley…

Steve Grand Still Has Folks Talkin’


Being openly gay and a country artist seems like two completely different worlds, but Steve Grand manages to be both of those things.  A few weeks ago, “All American Boy” was the song/video everyone was buzzing about. Yeah, yeah, I know, “Blurred Lines” (Robin Thicke) and “We Can’t Stop” (Miley Cyrus) were actually what was making noise…

Viral Smash: Jimmy McMillan’s R.T.D.H.


Ah, there is nothing like a viral video to draw attention, particularly when politics are involved!  Jimmy McMillan knows this all too well.  McMillan, who is running for mayor of NYC, brings his politics to the world via the ultimate catchy/simplistic “Rent Is Too Damn High“.  Is it an oversimplified message? Is McMillan truly serious or…

Is This How The Infamous Nicki/Mariah Argument went down?


  While doing my weekend youtube video watching rituals, I came upon an interesting ‘re-enactment’ of the the supposed Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey incident on American Idol.  Could this be how it all really went down? LOL!
