Katy Perry Owns the Summer With "Feels".

Post by: Montrez Rambo

So, I live in a vacuum sometimes. I don't get internet access that often but when I do, the first thing I do is check out every single new song I missed. And Feels by Calvin Harris is just everything I needed this summer!

Demi Lovato - "You Don't Do it For Me Anymore"

Post by: Montrez Rambo

Demi Lovato shows studio growth in new single You Don't Do it For Me Anymore".

The slow R&B ballad, with its gospel influenced vocals, is reminiscent in production to that of Dangerous Woman by Ms. Grande. But who cares, vocally it's better.

Demi gave good dynamics! Demi gave solid head voice! Demi gave precise runs! Demi gave sizeable sounding belts! The girl's vocals had drama and conviction. Her vibrato didn't sound like a pelican burping, either!

[NEW MUSIC] Kali Uchis "Nuestro Planeta"

Post by: Montrez Rambo

Kali Uchis has yet to make an artistic misstep since I came across her music. Nuestro Planeta is no exception. It's not too different from the tons of other reggaeton out there but the visuals in the music video were juicy.

The oiliness, the sexy guys, the chick p*ssy popping on the floor, the bikes, lighting... it's something to behold.

Kesha Slays VOCALLY and EMOTIONALLY with the Triumphant "Praying"

Post by: Diva Devotee
Kesha has been through the most turbulent of times, so it's  not surprising her return to music, free from the controlling shackles of Dr. Luke, would explore themes of rebirth and new beginnings. What is surprising is how hard the Diva goes, vocally, on the emotional track, Praying.

[Proof] Jennifer Hudson doesn't SHOUT (or Warm-up) when singing.

Post by: Diva Devotee
Some of y'all wanna clown Jennifer Hudson, calling her "Foghorn" and "loud".

Adjectives I can kind of get, if I try really hard. What I can't be dealing with, is people saying she shouts when she's hitting notes your faves could only dream of.

There is a clear difference between shouting and singing. One takes control, coordination and skill, the other is an unfocused and chaotic push to create sound. If you can't tell the difference, watch as the Pocketbook singer schools a Voice contestant on the difference between the two all while offering helpful tips on staying on pitch.

Adele done gone busted her voice again

Post by: Diva Devotee
Adele has been plagued by vocal problems throughout her meteoric career.

But now, perhaps saddest for her, the voice has given way just two days before the end of her self-titled world tour on home turf at Wembley Stadium. Clearly heartbroken, Adele took to her Twitter to announce the news and explain the sorrow she feels letting both fans and herself down.

Queen SEVDALIZA Returns with "Bluecid"

Post by: Diva Devotee
Divas are so plentiful and artistically varied that we can find one to suit all our moods and needs. (Not in that way you perv).

When I'm looking to have my creative battery recharged there are the obvious roster of Divas I could turn to. Bjork and Missy Elliot are two such icons that come to mind. Musically they stay on their own highway, let alone in a lane, presenting their creations to us in a visual way that is often as inspired as the music itself. And it's this combo of sound and sight that usually provides me the necessary wind beneath my wings to soar, creatively, once again. (Yes I'm aware I'm mixing metaphors!)

When even these imaginative Divas have failed to reinvigorate, my last resort has been to turn to singer/songwriter/visual genius, Sevdaliza.
