Troye Sivan – ‘Bloom’

Troye Sivan is South African-born, Australian singer, songwriter, actor and YouTuber who has been gathering a huge online following over the past few years.

Openly gay, Sivan describes ‘Bloom’ as a, ‘subversively queer song,’ that sees him take on the role of a passive guy losing his virginity. Although it’s full of innuendo, it is a really fun, subtle track that has an incredibly catchy chorus (but not in an obvious sense). It’s summery and deserves to be played loud…I expect his pride appearances this year will be huge!

No music video (as such) has been released, however a 3D animated lyric video, created by Jason Ebeyer, was released, featuring an animated version of Sivan floating through a fantasy land.


‘Bloom’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/bloom-single/1375827482



Jess Glynne – ‘I’ll Be There’

Jess Glynne is finally back with the first single since her 2015 debut, I Cry When I Laugh, indicating that her second album is on its way!

‘I’ll Be There’ is an uplifting track with very soulful and gospel-like qualities to it whilst maintaining a contemporary pop sound. It is a track that transcends as it progresses; this song makes it easy to see why she’s won a Grammy! I hope this is another Number 1 hit for her, like 2015’s debut, ‘Hold My Hand’.

The video itself doesn’t appear to have much of a narrative however the locations she performs in are pretty interesting and vibrant colours certainly play an important part throughout. Well worth a watch.


‘I’ll Be There’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ill-be-there/1376766204?i=1376767301

#ThrowbackThursday: Mary Mary – ‘Shackles (Praise You)’

Mary Mary are an R&B/gospel duo, comprised of sisters Erica and Trecina “Tina” Atkins-Campbell, most notable for this hit, ‘Shackles (Praise You)’ which hit the Top 5 of the UK charts in 2000.

The pair have since gone on to release several albums, but to little attention in the UK, however this song pioneered urban gospel music entering the charts.

Turn the volume up to 11, let loose and bust out your best moves because this song is a goodun!

#FeelGoodFriday: Disney’s Hercules – ‘Zero To Hero’

Hercules Banner

Hercules was the 35th animated feature film to be released by Disney and it was released back in 1997. The film featured a whole host of voice talents, such as Tate Donovan, James Woods and Danny DeVito. The film is loosely based on the Greek mythology hero, Heracles.

The film’s gospel choir make for an interesting addition to the film and they regularly speak to the audience in short interludes. This particular song, ‘Zero To Hero’, is all kinds of fun! It’s split into two clear sections with the second ramping up the tempo. It chronicles Hercules’ rise to fame with the people for his strength and abilities.

Who doesn’t love this song?! You can’t not, it’s amazing! Please share this and tell everyone you know, to crank up their volumes and sing this from their rooftops!

#WildCardWednesday: Mi’das – ‘Too Little Too Late’

3085975-3 copy copy

Mi’das (aka Mike Davies) has worked hard to create his own unique blend of soul and pop, which he has combined with his trademark vocals and guitar playing.

His sound has been described as “timeless, but discernably of its time” and he has worked his way from his hometown in Brighton, around the UK and across the pond, to the USA by busking on the street as well as sharing stages with the likes of Jessie J, Rita OraLabrinth and Jamie Cullum.

He has also been featured as an iTunes ‘Ahead of the Curve’ artist in the UK and US, earlier this year.

Mi’das recently released a new music video for the second single taken from his EP (‘Stronger’) called ‘Too Little Too Late’. Mi’das describes the song as being afraid of getting old and regretting not following your dreams and this message is clear throughout the song.

The soulful gospel vibe of the song brings it a uniquely timeless feel and makes for an interesting, intriguing sound. I am genuinely excited to hear what else Mi’das has to offer in the future!

How do you feel about this particular track? Do you think this timeless song has a place in today’s chart? Please show your support and share this link across your social media accounts.
