Top Tunes Tuesday 14th August!

Hey Guys!

Top Tunes Tuesday is back! First, a little update from last week’s songs: The lyrics video for Conor Maynard- Turn Around has been released, so take a look at that. Also, Lawson- Taking Over Me went straight in at number 3 on the official chart. Whoop whoop! This week:

I was actually listening to this song before R.I.P with Tinie Tempah came out. I love the party and summer vibe of it, so I was well ready for the Summer Hols in February! It’s out this week and has already gone to number 1 in Ireland. If you pre-order her album you get Roc the Life now, this is the song that has been on loop all week for me. I was desperate to put it in last week! I feel so gangsta when I’m like “Roc the li li li li li li li li life”.
Fave bit: “So put your arms around me baby, We're tearing up the town cause that's just how we do”

2. Ne-Yo-Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)
Bear with on the long song title, but it’s so sweet. Ne-Yo is such a gentleman and this song is another one to get you swooning. But it gets a little funky around the choruses and end of the song so it’s a good party one too.
Fave bit: “A heart of numbness comes back to light, I’ll take you there oh oh oh oh” Then is goes into a really dancey bit.
 
3. JenniferLopez- Goin’ In f.t Flo Rida
I can’t believe J-Lo is like 42, and she can still pull of the caps and baggy trousers and dance, keeping up with the younger kids. I aspire to be just like that when I’m 42. I love the vajazzled lips in the opening scene in the music video. So looks so gorgeous. The actual song has a combination of dancey, slow and rappy (courtesy of Flo) parts so it’s a really mash up of what J-Lo does best.
Fave Bit: “Tonight we go Orang-utan, Bananas!”

4.  Devlin-Watchtower f.t Ed Sheeran
This is a complete contrast to all the boppypoppy tunes I’ve suggested to this point, but I love the chorus and Ed’s vocals. I love the songs where you can feel real power behind the chorus, which Ed delivers here so well. Devlin does the talky/rapping bits over the verses. The song samples another oldie song All Along the Watchtower- Jimi Hendrix, but since the interweb is a no-no at the mo, I can’t check if any of that is right. Anyway, it’s released 19th August.
Fave Bit: The whole chorus, I couldn’t choose just one bit. And the video if pretty dramatic too.

5. Kyla La Grange- I Could Be
This is another different style I like. It’s a folk-pop ballad which build up in intensity from the word go. I haven’t listened to any of her other stuff, but I’m sure I will as this is from her album which I think is out now. It was the free download of the week on iTunes last week and I’m always up for a freebie.
Fave Bit: “I could yours if you write me a letter”…”I could be always, sometimes or never” More so on the 2nd and 3rd time she sings it where loads of background vocals are added.
