  1. My library has a fair share of pop and soft rock genres, but I know we always have exceptions. This Empty Northern Hemisphere is by far the most distant album to pop that I usually listen to. It's a very calming country-folk record. Yours?
  2. Initially slated for release back in March but delayed due to the pandemic, British pop band Steps dropped their new single “What the Future Holds” last Monday. It’s the lead single from their upcoming sixth studio album of the same name. The music video for the track dropped on Friday and has been receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The song, penned by none other than Sia, topped the UK iTunes chart within an hour of its release, with the album pre-order following suit by the following day. Best known for their fan-friendly dance routines (hence the name Steps) and hits such as “Tragedy,” “One For Sorrow,” “Deeper Shade of Blue,” and the line-dancing classic “5, 6, 7, 8,” the band, who were a huge staple in European pop music back in the late 90’s and early 00’s (and even toured with Britney) made a huge comeback in 2017 for their 20th anniversary, with a sell-out UK tour and comeback album “Tears on the Dancefloor.” “What the Future Holds” has been three years in the making and is set to be a continuation of their last album, utilising their established sound and bringing it into 2020. It sees them reunite with writers such as Fiona Bevan (One Direction, Lewis Capaldi), Ina Wroldsen (Shakira, Britney Spears) and Karl Twigg (who worked on their first three albums) plus experiment with songs written by the likes of Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beyonce), Hannah Robinson (Kylie) and new pop shape-shifters such as Gracey and MNEK. The album drops November 27th and you can pre-order it here via their official store. There are various bundles across a variety of formats including signed CDs, pink vinyl and cassette tape (how very 90's). Watch the video for “What the Future Holds” below and stream on Spotify! I've also posted "The Best of Steps" playlist for anyone who maybe isn't familiar with their back catalogue of bops.
  3. "A comfortable addition to her catalogue." From the exploitation of kissing a girl to dancing while purposely woke, Katy Perry is our favorite party best friend throughout the decade. And today, she finally dropped her most anticipated fifth studio album, Smile, follow up to 2017's Witness. We managed to somehow know what would be the direction of this record through her droplet era, starting from Zedd's collaboration, 365, to the most recent wedding-inspired ballad , Never Worn White. And though commercially underwhelming, it successfully transitioned her sound from electro-influenced pop to her old bubbly persona. And before proceeding to the album's final verdict, here are the track by track reviews: 1. Never Really Over ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - rather than to use her bubblegum-pop clichè, Perry progressively transcend the track into a mouthful and catchy harmonious anthem. Indeed, a perfect pop song. 2. Cry About It Later ⭐⭐⭐ - though the electric guitar and bass are quite addictive, starting the track with it's chorus makes it tirelessly redundant. 3. Teary Eyes ⭐⭐⭐ - the electronic syths sound very familiar. At least the dreamy/feather-like way Perry sings blended well with it's edge-y beats. And that second verse is a great build up though. 4. Daisies ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - though the verses are particularly weak, the euphoric and explosive chorus helps the track to reach it's peak. 5. Resilient ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - the narrative is very strong but the lack of dynamics between the verses and chorus is somewhat a turn down. But the build up in bridge has paid off to redeem it's rightful place as one of the strongest track in the record. 6. Not The End Of The World ⭐⭐⭐ - an impressive misfire considering how grandiose the intro is. The verses are plainly bland, and just relied by repeating the worn off choruses. 7. Smile ⭐⭐⭐ - contrast to it's upbeat production, the track isn't adventurous enough to explore it's own potential to be a good Teenage Dream heir. Though it has some of the strongest lyrics. 8. Champagne Problems ⭐⭐⭐ - the laid-back syths are way too comfortable, to the point the track has became monotonously unexciting. And the chorus being lazily written didn't help either. 9. Tucked ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - the bubbliness of the production probably resonates her Hummingbird Heartbeat and Act My Age tracks. And with matching playfulness of the lyrics, this song is the easiest to digest relentless. 10. Harley's In Hawaii ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - the acoustic guitar successfully sets up the sexy tone of the track, and the cleverness of the songwriting also wins to give a slow-burner-like vibe. 11. Only Love ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - the track has no promising melody or production but the way it's been delivered like a journal entry makes it more relatable. 12. What Makes A Woman ⭐⭐⭐ - though adorably and delicately produced, the swearings are just unnecessary. Wished the excitement in the second verse leads into something but it ended shortly. 🎪 🎪 🎪 "Smile" (6/10) The record is not a revival of her iconic Teenage Dream but rather a continuation of the PRISM's club inspired contents. And though it lacks with the promising and experimental sound of her ambitious Witness, the narratives and production are surprisingly cohesive, considering the weights of Never Really Over as an opening track has put in. The tracklisting is also well blended and sync as the album progresses, without hearing the lead singles being aggressively overshadowing the following tracks. Favorite Track(s): • Never Really Over • Resilient • Tucked • Only Love Least Favorite Track(s): • Cry About It Later • Teary Eyes What are your favorites tracks? Related:
  4. Anitta is coming with fire in her eyes for the international market! After 5 Latin GRAMMYs nominations and being praised by Madonna, Snoop Dogg and J Balvin for her work on pop, urban and latin music, the "Girl From Rio" is preparing her first album with a new label, Warner Records, and it promises to be her biggest move till the date. Since she signed with Brandon Silverstein and S10 (Normani and Bazzi's managers), the Brazilian supreme star is taking all of the steps for a U.S debut, including a big project produced by Ryan Tedder (yes, that Ryan Tedder) and a solo concert at Coachella's main stage, that was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic. But she's here to serve and it didn't stop her, as her lead single, the feminist anthem "Me Gusta", is confirmed for August. Let's check what else she has on hands for us: - The lead-single, "Me Gusta": Registered in the beginning of the year and with its music video recorded in February in Salvador, the same Brazilian city that Michael Jackson recorded the iconic "They Don't Care About Us", this bop will bring a mix of two genres (Brazilian funk+Pagodão baiano) in spanglish, being her most risky single ever. The song talks about female empowerment and already has a snippet going on the internet. The music video will bring a fashion show produced by Nicola Formichetti, who worked on Lady Gaga's Haus Labs. She also confirmed that her team is waiting the pandemic to set down for recording the music videos for the next singles. - The album, "Girl From Rio": Anitta teased this name as a song confirmed on the album (in reference to the iconic Brazilian 60s smash "The Girl From Ipanema") and her favorite possible title, matching with the theme she wants for it, female empowerment and her childhood's stories. She promises to bring all the Carnival vibes for a pop record, with tons of Brazilian tastes, as baile funk, samba and bossa nova, defining it as her best work ever and the one she has more proud of. You must have seen some rumors about some artists like Miley Cyrus, ROSALÍA and Nicki Minaj joining her for it, but, in fact, she said that probably there will be only 2 collabs, "Me Gusta" and "Tócame". The good news are that she confirmed a song ready to be released with Cardi B and others with "huge female singers". Besides that, she has an A+ List team working with her for the LP. We already have names like Ryan Tedder, Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, The Monsters and Strangerz, Stargate, Sky Rompiendo and The Stereotypes. The Brazilian flavor is in the hands of Papatinho, ÀTTØØXXÁ and Tropkillaz. If you want to get to know more about the Brazilian icon, watch her doc series on Netflix, "Vai Anitta" and keep your eyes on her next songs!
  5. Has anybody heard “SAWAYAMA”because if you haven’t, yr missing out on some great music all I can say is the album is just plain fantastic, slaying, pretty, rocking, thrilling , nostalgic, J-Pop, pop, alternative in the same time There are confident songs like Commes de garçon (can I mention how much this song sounds like do you wanna come over from britney), who’s gonna save you know (AHHHHHHHH MY DAMN WIG), XS (I cannot it’s too good) and dynasty. Then it has early 2000s anime bangers like paradis’in (that’s the bomb sis ), Tokyo’s love hotel (ugh my ears) and chosen family. Guilty songs like bad friend () Sad bops like chosen family ()and plain bops and banger should like ASAKA SAD and snakeskin. Plus the album sounds sooo 80s-early 2000s (omg yessss). Overall this album is just outstanding and deserves to get a nomination for Grammy album of the year the album also reminds me a lot of Britney’s “in the zone” albumman looking rn, music released this year is just so solid I mean we got music like future nostalgia, rare, after hours, say so and now this! I hope this year will be the revival of pop what do you guys think of SAWAYAMA? Let me know in the thread below

  7. Mi sarebbe piaciuto vederla in Animali fantastici e dove trovarli o Harry Potter. 
  8. On June 16 we shall remember one of the best album releases of the past decade and my fav record of 2017: Lorde's pop masterpiece Melodrama. It received rave reviews by critics and fans, and even got nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammy Awards (losing to Bruno Mars' 24K Magic). In my opinion this album really shows Lorde's talent and ability as a songwriter, composer and vocalist (shoutout to Writer in the Dark). Jack Antonoff produced with her almost every song on the tracklist and I love the fact that it sounds so cohesive. A vibrant, liberating, relatable breakup album filled with well produced pop gems. Also, June 16 is the date when the Femme Fatale Tour started off in Sacramento (CA) in 2011 (and also my birthday, yas).
  9. Carly Rae Jepsen just released the next installment of Dedicated. It's called (Side B) and features new songs with a different vibe than what she previously released with Side A. I'm a pretty big Carly fan, so my body is ready to dive into the new tunes!
  10. Katy Perry's new era is officially underway! The pop superstar released a new music video for a track titled, "Daisies," the lead single from her forthcoming fifth studio album. The song is upbeat and bright - a shiny pop gem the world needs in this time of uncertainty. Sure, it probably won't crash the Hot 100, but does it matter? Music not the bling. More importantly, when most pop stars are taking a back seat because of the pandemic, Katy went the other way. She's going full album cycle on us amidst a global crisis, while pregnant. She even unapologetically shed her clothes and showed off her naked pregnant body in the video, which takes place inside an enchanting forest far away from the worries of a coronavirus. It's hard to fathom watching Katy in her element that the world is seemingly imploding. That's the beauty of this song and video. Yea, this isn't Katy's best release ever, but that's not what it's meant to be. "Daisies" is a beacon of hope in a time when we could all use some.
  11. OneRepublic's new album "Human" was originally planned for a May 8th release. However since the announcement, the outbreak of COVID-19 has been getting worse. This has led the band to announce they will postpone their album release to an unknown later date. Commercial wise this probably is a good idea. Dua Lipa released her album only a few weeks ago and has extremely low physical sales which makes sense as many people can't buy music at this time. Many stores are closed and many people all over the world are unemployed, people have other priorities than buying music right now. See their Facebook post below: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10158344792588912&id=24983228911
  12. This is the official Dua Lipa x Future Nostalgia thread. How are we liking the album thus far? If you're feeling it, there's more goodness to come. Dua confirmed there's a deluxe edition on the way. "I've been holding back some songs. Trying to figure it out... I've got some songs that I've been holding back that I'm really excited for everyone to hear." She's also recorded collaborations with Normani and Miley Cyrus, though those probably won't make the Deluxe cut. You ready for more Future Slayalgia?!
  13. Pop meets cyber apocalypse. We appreciate power 👏 Do we have any Grimes fans here? https://open.spotify.com/album/1ZKbjlrUC5REoa13uSH5KL?si=GUfJ04MjQ_OdpLRmd6PNhw New music video for "You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around." Looks like she wants fans to edit the green screen stuff. Kinda genius.
  14. Sam Smith was originally planning on releasing their new album To Die For in April. They confirmed that's no longer happening, nor will it be out in the very near future. Not sure why though seeing as everyone is at home and can listen to their new tunes. They explained in a post on IG. Are you excited for Sam's forthcoming album?
  15. The Weeknd's new album After Hours enjoys the biggest first-week sales of anyone else in 2020. The world might be uncertain, but one thing's for sure... Abel knows how to make an immaculate album. Have you guys had a chance to listen? My favorite songs are "In Your Eyes" and "Save Your Tears" right now. Soo good. It appears people agree After Hours is it, because his first-week sales are stellar. According to Billboard, Abel's new record sold 444,000 equivalent album units in the U.S.
  16. Jojo's new album Good to Know drops this spring. She just released on of the new tracks. It's titled "Man," a mid-tempo that finds the singer flexing her vocal chops over an untamed guitar melody and breathy backgrounds. She never disappoints. Anyone else feeling Jojo's new tune?
  17. Well, Taylor dropped a remix with Shawn Mendes and i was thinking.... If Britney puts out an album (anything can happen, also we can dream) will you be down for a collab? Not a G-Eazy collab, a hot act collab, an international name. If the case was Taylor, i would like her to produce the album with Antonoff and Max Martin. If it was Lady Gaga, a feat for sure. If it was madonna or Rihanna again.... A dream. I don't want billie, selena.. That wont match. Cardi B or Missy Elliot would be so nice! A latin act? Thoughts?
  18. SHE’S READY TO TELL HER SIDE OF THE STORY. Demi Lovato has a lot to sing about since releasing her last record, Tell Me You Love Me. In the time since, the pop star nearly died from a drug overdose, and in the time between that harrowing ordeal, she’s seen peoples’ true colors… and she’s not happy about it. Demi shared an update regarding her forthcoming seventh studio album, and she’s going to get brutally honest. “You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.” Demi added a shrugging emoji for good measure. There’s buzz she’s referring to ex Wilmer Valderrama, who was recently spotted hanging out with Joe and Nick Jonas. It appears Demi and Nick no longer have a friendship anymore “You won’t need names cause you’ll know exactly who they are,”. Demi has since signed with legendary manager, Scooter Braun, who represents Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly and more. Obviously what Demi went through was terrible, however we love an album by a pop star scorned. Thoughts? Express yourself below!
  19. I created a fan-made album a year ago and uploaded it to youtube and got quite a bit of views, now I'm bored and want to create another one, I usually start with creating the artwork... I've decided I want you guys to pick the cover this time, here are the two options... + if you haven't seen my previous fan-made album, check it out, it has 6k views on YouTube, I proud of it lmao. OPTION 1 https://i65.tinypic.com/2i9ngqg.jpg OPTION 2 https://i67.tinypic.com/am5i6r.jpg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roID64oqPGM
  20. So if Nicki's fans can do it why can't we? I was thinking to celebrate Britney's birthday that week, let's rebuy AND stream Glory! If possible we can get up the Top 40 on Itunes possibly higher. Plus it'll be our gift to Britney by giving her money for her birthday as well. If we can spread this around enough maybe it'll be enough to re-enter the Billboard 200. Think about it, WE CAN DO THIS.
  21. This may already be a topic (I did a quick search and didn't see anything substantial) but I just have so many questions about Myah Marie and her involvement with Britney's albums, specifically Britney Jean. I'm relatively new to Exhale but I have been a Britney fan for as long as I can remember... which is why it took be two seconds to realize that someone else was singing for Britney on her songs. For example- I actually really enjoy the song Passenger but I can't get through it without becoming enraged at the fact that it isn't even Britney singing. So... why? Like, why did Britney and/or her team (because I honestly wouldn't be shocked if Britney had no clue about how much her vocals are on the final albums) think that it would be ok or go unnoticed that it wasn't her singing? Do they really think that people who have been listening to her music since 1999 wouldn't recognize a different voice? Was Britney just going into the booth and breathing at the microphone? What possible reason could they have for using Myah at all? Was it strict deadlines or something? If anyone could shed any light on this subject I would be very grateful.
  22. This is my personal ranking for Britney's most sexual album! I included pics from this era on each song! Let me know what you think and if we have similar ranking! https://youtu.be/V89iYl25KUA
  23. is release something thats sound like a "Havana" rip off! I was very dissappointed with Pretty Girls because it was a copy (not nearly as good) version of "Fancy". It's very lame when singers (especially older ones who are trying to get a hit again) copy current hits. It can be uptempo, trap pop, house whatever is in now but it must sound original and fresh
