#Two4Tunesday: Justin Bieber – ‘Sorry’ & Ben Haenow – ‘Second Hand Heart’ featuring Kelly Clarkson

Justin Bieber – ‘Sorry’

Oh my god! This song is just immense! I loved Justin Bieber‘s Believe album, but I think his newest one, Purpose, is going to blow its socks off!

Bieber has really embraced the current musical trends of Tropical House and Dancehall, which is putting him really on point. I don’t know anyone who didn’t like What Do You Mean?‘ and I think ‘Sorry’ is going to be the same. This song is a collaboration with Where Are Ü Now collaborator, Skrillex and that, in my opinion, is part of the key to his success.

I can’t get enough of this song and his latest singles have definitely let me anticipating his new album. I personally can’t wait!


‘Sorry’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/sorry/id1049359399?i=1049359405



Ben Haenow – ‘Second Hand Heart‘ featuring Kelly Clarkson

There’s no doubt about it, this is straight-up, pure pop music, but it’s a good song! I’ll readily admit, I didn’t really give two hoots about Ben Haenow winning X Factor last year, but this song has impressed me! I am also quite a Kelly Clarkson fan, so that probably helps, but I like the subtle country/folk undertones coursing through the pop melodies and think it makes for an interesting pop song.

The video matches the song well too and it’s filmed in Nashville, Tennessee, giving it that extra country feel.

Interestingly, the song was co-written by members of the pop rock band Artist vs. Poet.


‘Second Hand Heart’ can be downloaded from iTunes right now! Show your support – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/second-hand-heart-feat.-kelly/id1043081452?i=1043081453

#StrangeSunday: The 1975 – ‘Love Me’ & Skrillex – ‘Summit’ featuring Ellie Goulding

Today I’m having a bit of a #StrangeSunday because I’m loving two completely opposing sorts of tracks; The 1975 just released their new single, from their forthcoming second album, I Like It When You Sleep – For You Are So Beautiful – Yet So Unaware Of It, called ‘Love Me’ and although on first listen I wasn’t sure about it, I’m actually excited about this new direction for them and can’t wait to see them live in November!

My opposing track is ‘Summit’ by Skrillex, featuring Ellie Goulding, taken from 2011’s ‘Bangarang EP’. The song is combination of electronica, EDM and pop, all at their best. The cut-up samples of Sonny’s voice are amazing and the song builds progressively in anticipation of Ellie Goulding’s voice which is just the icing on the cake. It’s a remarkable song and perfect for this calm and pleasant Sunday evening.

The 1975 – ‘Love Me’


Skrillex – ‘Summit’ featuring Ellie Goulding

What do you think of my #StrangeSunday? Are you having the same sort of mash up of different songs? Please share them with us.

#WildCardWednesday: Jack Ü – ‘Where Are Ü Now’ featuring Justin Bieber

Jack Ü Banner

For this week’s #WildCardWednesday we bring you Jack Ü!

Jack Ü is an american duo, consisting of producing legends Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) and Diplo (aka Thomas Pentz), who formed their side-project, Jack Ü, back in 2013. They are considered to be a mixture of Trap and Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

Their most recent release is ‘Where Are Ü Now’ which features guest vocals from Justin Bieber; whatever you think of Biebs, this track is awesome and his vocals are pretty remarkable. The track has actually had quite a positive response recently, peaking No. 5 in the UK charts, so far.

As of yet, the song has no official video, though on is in the works. However, Justin Bieber has released a home-made video for the track on his official YouTube account (see below).

Anyway, this tune is huge, so crank it loud – it’s killer!

What do you think of this song? Are you a fan? Was Justin Bieber a good choice of vocalist for the track? Please share our link on Twitter and Facebook.
