Album Review: ‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd

by

Abel Tesfaye, better known as his stage name The Weeknd, has come along way from being the underground, Toronto crooner with his chart-topping album Starboy. The Weeknd has slowly climbed to stardom and proves that he is prepared to remain at the top of the charts. It’s been years since The Weeknd charmed us with his underground, tortured music that had us helplessly fall in love with his soft, tender voice as he sang about love, drugs, and his own securities.

Now Playing: ‘Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight’

by

Don’t let the title fool you. This is not an R&B album by Brian McKnight. Instead, it’s a look into the mind of one of hip-hop’s leading new artists: Travis Scott. His sophomore album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, is Scott’s take on letting your creativity flow and just being able to create without constraints. Travis Scott is pretty lucky to do so himself. He’s signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music as a producer and T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records as an artist. He’s produced and written songs with everyone from Rihanna to Jay-Z, but it is through his own music that he shines most.

What We Think About Usher’s New Album, ‘Hard II Love’

by

It’s been four years since Usher’s last album, and the R&B genre seems to be facing an identity crisis. Think of classic R&B and you think of love songs and sad songs influenced by soul and jazz music. But today’s R&B is mostly influenced by hip-hop and the occasional EDM beat. Usher has walked both of these roads with much success and the 37-year-old singer just released his eighth studio album, Hard II Love. At his Tidal listening session he said, “I really did cater this album to men, specifically men who don’t think love is cool to do.”

by

SYMON, a 23-year-old California native, has known that she was meant be a performer since she was a young girl. “Growing up in the ‘90s, a lot of pop stars were incredibly inspiring to me,” says SYMON. “I remember studying Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and the Backstreet Boys and thinking, ‘This is what I want to do when I grow up.’ I want to sing. I want to make people feel amazing and I want to entertain.” She has crafted a “pop sound with a lot of island and urban influence,” and with her new single “Say” breaking into the Radio Top 60 charts, she seems to be well on her way. We chatted with the pop sensation about her inspirations, her upcoming EP, and her cool connection with Demi Lovato.

Album Review: Lana Del Rey ‘Honeymoon’

by

Despite all of Lana Del Rey’s often sighted character flaws, the biggest problem with her 2014 release of Ultraviolence had nothing to do with her problematic lyrics and whiny angst-ridden teen attitude — the album was just boring. That problem persists on her newest 2015 effort Honeymoon to an even greater degree. It’s hard to ...
