Charlie Puth – ‘Attention’

Charlie Puth has been going from strength to strength and whilst I wasn’t a fan of his big hit, ‘Marvin Gaye’, I loved his collaboration with Selena Gomez on We Don’t Talk Any More. Since then, it appears the singer songwriter is gearing up to release a new album with brand new single, ‘Attention’ leading the way.

The song is catchy and I love the way the percussion builds up throughout the track – the bass line is funky and his vocals are great (even if auto tune has been used evidently). A great single and a surefire sign of great things to come.

The music video is steamy and features Puth in a tumultuous relationship, breaking up with glass flying before kissing and making up and starting the cycle all over again. Check it out below.


‘Attention’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/attention/id1226009041?i=1226009487



Yes Lad – ‘Walk Away’

Yes Lad are a five-piece boyband who emerged on the scene after their appearances on X Factor UK.

The electro-pop song is tinged with urban sounds and makes for a fantastic debut single from the band. ‘Walk Away’ is catchy, and follows the current trend of having sampled vocals over the chorus but it’s unique in it’s own way – an impressive debut, looking forward to seeing what the boys release next.

The music video for the track, was filmed in Manchester and features the band performing the track, and showing off some impressive dance moves.


‘Walk Away’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/walk-away/id1210428767?i=1210429183

Major Lazer – ‘Cold Water’ featuring Justin Bieber & MØ

Once again, Major Lazer have teamed up with previous collaborators, Justin Bieber and  to create a new, surefire hit, in the form of ‘Cold Water’.

‘Cold Water’ was penned by Benny Blanco and Ed Sheeran among others and features two awesome vocalists. It has major influences from the tropical house genre, as well as some dance style to it too. It’s a very vibrant song and sure to be a hit this summer, probably similarly to their previous smash hit, ‘Lean On’.

What are your thoughts on this new Major Lazer song?

Charlie Puth – ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ featuring Selena Gomez

Charlie Puth rose to fame mainly after his feature on the Wiz Khalifa track, See You Again. Since then, he’s had a string of hits and most recently he released ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ from his debut album, Nine Track Mind.

This song is also tropical house in style with influences of dance – it’s actually beautifully crafted – the duet vocals sit nicely on top of the house beat and remain relaxed yet catchy in their feel. Although it hasn’t done amazingly in the charts, it caught my attention when I heard Nick Grimshaw play it on Radio 1 recently!

No official video has been released but I’ve included a live version as well as a YouTube audio video. *UPDATE* An official video has now been released – it’s really interesting with the split screen but it’s a shame he didn’t get Selena Gomez in it too.

Have you checked out this track yet? What are your opinions of it?

#FeelGoodFriday: Wiz Khalifa – ‘See You Again’ featuring Charlie Puth

Wiz Khalifa Banner

This song means an awful lot to me right now; as a teacher I strive to make a difference in children’s lives each and every day and I was honoured to have this song sung to me (as a complete surprise!) by 4 of the most amazing students that I had the privilege of teaching last year; they surprised me with their performance on their last day at the school this year! Needless to say, it was emotional and a real privilege; it made me feel like I had truly made a difference even in just a few lives!

This song is known for its connection to Paul Walker, who tragically died during the filming of Fast and Furious 7 but it has taken on a new meaning for me…that’s the true power of music!

Whilst the message and intent behind the song is about a sad occasion, it also is feel-good, as it’s looking for the positives in a sad situation and for that reason, it’s my #FeelGoodFriday song of choice this week.

Does this song have an emotional attachment for you? Have you got any similar feel-good songs? Please comment below.
