Legendary French singer Celine Dion brings to light a brand-new music video for the song entitled ‘Courage.’

 

Celine Dion remains one of the greatest vocalists of all time with her past records of releasing timeless songs.

 

She inspires with her heavenly voice which is one of a kind and songs with meaningful lyrics.

 

More!

From her humble roots as a French-language teenage pop singer to international superstardom, Canadian singer Celine Dion became a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning crossover success in the ’90s after breaking into the English-language market with heartfelt ballads that shined a spotlight on her powerful and inimitable voice.

 

In addition to winning first prize at the 1988 Eurovision song contest, Dion also scored multiple Grammy awards, including Album of the Year for 1996’s Falling Into You.

 

Her award-winning contributions to film soundtracks helped expand her presence into the pop culture mainstream, most notably with songs like “Beauty and the Beast” from the 1991 Disney animated film and the blockbuster “My Heart Will Go On” from 1997’s box office smash Titanic.

 

Decades into her career, her status as a beloved pop icon was further cemented with a record-breaking Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace, making her one of the highest-grossing artists of all time.

 

Born on March 30, 1968, in Charlemagne, Quebec, Céline Marie Claudette Dion was one of 14 children in a large family that fostered a love of music.

 

She started singing at a young age, performing at the family’s piano bar and at her older brother’s wedding.

 

Pursuing her dream of becoming a singer, she wrote her first song “Ce N’etait Qu’un Rêve” (It Was Only a Dream) in 1980 with her mother and brother. Released in June 1981, the single peaked in the Top 20 of the Quebec singles chart and landed on her debut full-length La Voix Du Bon Dieu (Super Etoiles/Saisons), which was released in November of the same year.

 

Under the guidance of producer and manager René Angélil, Dion went on to win “Top Performer” and “Best Song” at the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo and multiple Felix Awards in her native Quebec for her third effort, Tellement J’ai D’amour…, which won Best Pop Album, Newcomer of the Year, and Female Vocalist of the Year. The album was certified platinum in Canada while leaping to France, where it also became a hit. A steady stream of releases followed into the late ’80s, including four studio albums, a handful of compilations, and a pair of Christmas collections, which helped her make inroads into international markets like Belgium and Switzerland.

 

In 1987, Dion received a full pop makeover on her eighth LP, Incognito (CBS Records). The double-platinum set spawned five hit singles and was promoted with a Canadian tour that included a multi-month residency at the Saint-Denis Theatre in Montreal.

 

 

Amid Incognito’s whirlwind success, Dion won the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, representing Switzerland with “Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi.”

 

Poised for greater international exposure, Dion finally made her move beyond her French-language Canadian releases, taking aim at the U.S. pop mainstream at the turn of the decade.

 

Released on Columbia Records in April 1990, Unison was Dion’s first English-language album, following a concerted effort to improve her language skills and vocal training. The leap paid off and Unison was a massive success, selling more than a million copies in the U.S. and millions worldwide. In addition to singles “Have a Heart” and “Unison,” the album also included Billboard hits like “The Last to Know,” “(If There Was) Any Other Way,” and “Where Does My Heart Beat Now,” which peaked at number four on the Hot 100 and number two on the Adult Contemporary chart.

 

Unison’s performance helped Dion attract the attention of Disney and she was recruited for 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast,” a duet with Peabo Bryson from the animated film of the same name. Produced by Walter Afanasieff and penned by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, the ballad was a Top Ten hit, winning Dion a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals.

 

Her second English-language album arrived in 1992. Riding the success of “Beauty and the Beast” — included as the set’s first single — Celine Dion made confident steps away from the youthful pop of her previous releases, presenting a matured rebranding for the singer on yearning ballads and confident, R&B-inspired dance numbers. Featuring songwriting by Afanasieff, Diane Warren, and Prince, the self-titled effort entered the top 40 of the Billboard 200, eventually outselling Unison. It included hit singles “If You Asked Me To,” “Nothing Broken but My Heart,” and “Love Can Move Mountains.”

 

Meanwhile, away from the public eye, Dion and Angelil began a romantic relationship, which was subtly unveiled in 1993 in the liner notes of her next album (the couple would wed at the end of 1994).

 

Issued in November, The Colour of My Love topped charts across Europe and in Canada, entering the Top Ten in the U.S. and even Japan. It was her highest-selling effort to date with over 20-million copies sold. The Juno- and Grammy-winning album yielded romantic hits like the Clive Griffin duet “When I Fall in Love” (from the Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack), U.K. chart-topper “Think Twice,” and the international smash “The Power of Love,” a cover of a Jennifer Rush song that went on to win the Grammy for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocal(s). As Love became Dion’s biggest album to date, she shifted focus back to her French audience with another blockbuster.

 

Following the release of live album À L’olympia, recorded in Paris in September 1994, Dion issued D’eux (released as The French Album in the U.S.) in 1995. The set included chart-topping singles like “Pour Que Tu E” and “Je Sais pas,” which both shot to number one in France and Belgium. The album itself stayed atop the French chart for a whopping 44 weeks, becoming the best-selling French album of all time.

 

Her months of French chart dominance came to an end in 1996 when she was toppled from the top spot by her own album, Falling Into You.

 

Returning to English-language output, Dion hit another career high point with Falling Into You. Surpassing the success of her previous two efforts, the LP found Dion at a peak in popularity, extending her chart dominance around the world with platinum singles like “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” and the Grammy-winning “Because You Loved Me” (from the Up Close and Personal soundtrack). Frequent collaborators Diane Warren and David Foster returned to work on the project, which won Grammy Awards for Album of the Year and Best Pop Album while becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time. In support of the effort, Dion embarked on a world tour that lasted over a year, hitting spots in Asia and Australia. Mere months after the tour’s final date in Switzerland, Dion returned to the top of the charts with a follow-up.

 

Let’s Talk About Love arrived in late 1997. Afanasieff and Foster, among others, returned to produce the effort, while guests like Barbra Streisand, the Bee Gees, Luciano Pavarotti, Bryan Adams, Diana King, Brownstone, Carole King, and George Martin were enlisted for vocal duties and songwriting. In addition to hit duets “Tell Him” and “Immortality,” Let’s Talk About Love featured what would become Dion’s signature song, “My Heart Will Go On,” the James Horner-penned theme from the blockbuster film Titanic. With its unmistakable flute melody and cinematic scope, the single matched the film’s cultural dominance, becoming a ubiquitous radio staple and topping charts in Canada, Europe, Australia, and the U.S.

 

After winning an Academy Award in 1997 for Best Original Song, “My Heart Will Go On” scored a Golden Globe in 1998 before sweeping the 1999 Grammys with wins for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal, and Best Song for a Motion Picture or Television. While touring in support of Let’s Talk About Love, Dion issued the holiday album These Are Special Times; a greatest-hits compilation, All the Way: A Decade of Song; and another French release, S’il Suffisait D’aimer.

 

She capped off the decade by receiving the titles of Officer of the Order of Canada for Outstanding Contribution to the World of Contemporary Music and Officer of the National Order of Quebec.

 

After her unbroken run of ’90s chart success and international touring, Dion took a well-deserved break to focus on her family, prompted in part by a cancer diagnosis for Angelil and the 2001 birth of their first child.

 

Dion returned to music in 2002 with a refreshed pop sound on A New Day Has Come. Another multi-platinum chart-topper, the album was inspired by the birth of her son and the September 11th attacks, which pushed Dion to focus on love, hope, and fresh beginnings. In addition to familiar faces like Afanasieff, Christopher Neil, Ric Wake, and Guy Roche, Dion also enlisted Swedish pop producers Anders Bagge, Peer Astrom, and Arnthor Birgisson, as well as songwriters Kara DioGuardi and Corey Hart. While not as globe-conquering as her late-’90s releases, A New Day managed to yield uplifting hits like “A New Day Has Come” and “I’m Alive,” a pair of sweeping tracks that highlighted her new-millennium pop confidence. Settling into this reenergized comfort zone, Dion quickly followed with 2003’s One Heart, home to the urgent dance-pop single “I Drove All Night,” a cover of the Roy Orbison song that was popularized by Cyndi Lauper in 1989. The rest of the album showcased this sleek, pop-friendly rebirth, hiring producers like Cathy Dennis and Max Martin, known for their work with acts like Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue. Despite the attempt at reinvention, One Heart’s stylistic shift was met with criticism, becoming her lowest-selling English-language effort in over a decade. Yet, even with this seemingly commercial disappointment, the album was still certified platinum and sold over five million copies worldwide.

 

The mid-aughts remained relatively quiet for Dion. Taking a step back from the pop world, she entered the studio with Jean-Jacques Goldman, Erick Benzi, Jacques Veneruso, and Gildas Arzel for the folk-and-country-influenced 1 Fille & 4 Types, a surprising dip into hitherto unexplored genres for the artist that ended up being a hit for her French-language fans.

 

A year later, she retreated to familiar adult contemporary territory on the baby-centric, multimedia collaboration with photographer Anne Geddes, Miracle, which featured Dion’s covers of songs by John Lennon, Louis Armstrong, Roberta Flack, and others. 2004 also saw the release of A New Day…Live in Las Vegas, a concert recording of her multi-million-dollar, five-year residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Occupied by these live shows — which had Dion booked for nightly performances five days a week — she released a comprehensive greatest-hits collection, On Ne Change Pas, which compiled her French-language hits from 1981 to 2005.

 

In 2007, after the release of another French album, D’elles — an ambitious concept featuring songs written by French female authors — Dion returned with a course-correcting follow-up to One Heart.

 

Taking Chances arrived at the end of 2007. A comeback of sorts, the LP included the set’s sole hit “Taking Chances,” written with Kara DioGuardi and the Eurythmics’ David A. Stewart, and a cover of Heart’s “Alone,” reimagined with guitarist Ben Moody (ex-Evanescence). Despite being one of her lowest-selling English efforts, Taking Chances was supported with a record-breaking international tour that made stops in South Africa, China, Malaysia, and Australia, becoming one of the highest-grossing treks of all time.

 

Another best-of compilation, My Love: Essential Collection (which collected hits released after 1999’s All the Way…), kept Dion on the charts following the conclusion of her world tour, which was commemorated on 2010’s Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert, recorded in Boston and Montreal. She also signed on for a second multi-year concert residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which had a planned run that extended into 2019. Meanwhile, she issued another French album, Sans Attendre, in late 2012. Topping charts in worldwide French markets, the effort featured duets with Johnny Hallyday (“L’amour Peut Prendre Froid”), Jean-Pierre Ferland (“Une Chance Qu’on S’a”), and Henri Salvador (“Tant de Temps”). Eleventh English album, Loved Me Back to Life, followed in 2013. In addition to the Sia-penned title track, Loved Me also included duets with Ne-Yo (“Incredible”) and Stevie Wonder (“Overjoyed”).

 

In 2014, Dion’s Vegas residency and an Asia tour were abruptly halted after Angelil’s health began to further deteriorate. Although her performances resumed a year later in the summer of 2015, they were once again halted in early 2016 with the tragic deaths of both Angelil and her brother, Daniel Dion, which came within two days of each other. A devastated Dion took time away from the spotlight for a month, returning to the stage in February.

 

That summer, she released Encore un Soir, an introspective set of uplifting pop that peaked at number one in Canada, France, Belgium, and Switzerland, notably becoming Dion’s first French-language effort to chart on the Billboard charts. Encore was home to singles like the title track and “L’étoile,” co-written by French slam poet Grand Corps Malade.

 

Dion returned to the world of film soundtracks in 2017. Reuniting with a property that helped break her into the American pop culture landscape over 25 years earlier, she contributed “How Does a Moment Last Forever” to Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by Tim Rice, the song topped the Quebec charts and even entered the Top Ten across Asia. In 2018, she contributed to another, though slightly more unorthodox, soundtrack: Deadpool 2. “Ashes” landed that May, accompanied by a music video starring Dion and the titular superhero that quickly went viral.

 

The following year, Dion released the club-friendly anthem “Flying on My Own,” the first single from her 12th English-language album, Courage. A triumph of spirit, the set showcased a revitalized Dion, who was aided by pop and electronic guests such as Sia, David Guetta, Sam Smith, Skylar Grey, LAUV, and more.

Lyrics:

 

I would be lying if I said I’m fine

I think of you at least a hundred times

Cause in the echo of my voice I hear your words

Just like you’re there

 

I still come home from a long day

So much to talk about so much to say

I love to think that we’re still making plans

In conversations that’ll never end

In conversations that’ll never end

 

Courage

Don’t you dare fail me now

I need you to keep away the doubts

I’m staring in the face of something new

You’re all I got to hold on to

So courage

Don’t you dare fail me now

 

Not one to hide from the truth I know

It’s out of my hands but I won’t let you go

There’s no replacing the way you touched me

I still feel the rush

 

Sometimes it drowns me until I can’t breath

Thinking it’s only in our memories

But then I talk to you like I did then

In conversations that will never end

 

Courage

Don’t you dare fail me now

I need you to keep away the doubts

I’m staring in the face of something new

You’re all I got to hold on to

So courage

Don’t you dare fail me now

 

Cause it’s not easy

When you’re not with me

This world of madness

Goes faster now

And it’s a train wreck

But I won’t crash yet

Long as your echo

Never fades out

 

Courage don’t you dare fail me now

 

Cause it’s not easy

When you’re not with me

This world of madness

Goes faster now

And it’s a train wreck

But I won’t crash yet

Long as your echo

Never fades out

 

Courage don’t you dare fail me now

James Arthur unveils a brand-new music video for the song entitled ‘Quite Miss Home.’

 

James thrills with his compelling vocals as he sings from the heart.

 

‘Quite Miss Home’ is tuneful, inspirational and driving while the lyrics are deep.

 

More!

James Arthur was the victor of the British X Factor’s ninth season in 2012, winning the public vote with a rendition of Shontelle’s rousing ballad “Impossible.”

 

Born in Middlesbrough, England, Arthur had written and performed in various bands since the age of 15, as well as performing solo in pubs and bars in his hometown.

 

Many of the singer/songwriter’s early recordings illustrate the pop/rock and hip-hop influences that helped shape his unique voice and style.

 

Before he appeared on The X Factor, Arthur made it into the final 200 contestants of the U.K.’s The Voice TV series in 2011, without managing to progress any further.

 

A year later, he auditioned for The X Factor, where he sang judge Tulisa Contostavlos’ song “Young” and subsequently made it through the boot-camp round and into the live shows.

 

From then on, Arthur showcased his considerable talents and slowly improved under the watchful eye of mentor Nicole Sherzinger.

 

He was pitted against Jahméne Douglas and Christopher Maloney in the final round of the contest, where he impressed the audience with performances of Cy Grant’s “Feeling Good,” Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love,” and Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.”

 

The final song of the evening — the version of Shontelle’s “Impossible” — was released immediately after Arthur was announced as the winner and made it to number one in the U.K. and Ireland, while also charting across Europe.

 

He then went on tour with the X Factor show, playing across the U.K. in huge, sold-out arenas such as Wembley and the Birmingham LG.

 

After his X Factor success, Arthur worked alongside singer/songwriter Labrinth and Graham Stack (JLS, Take That, Westlife) in preparation for his debut album. He put out the eponymous release later that year; the album featured “Impossible” and “Roses” (with Emeli Sandé), as well as follow-up singles “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You,” “Recovery,” and “Get Down.”

 

Arthur departed from Syco Music the following year and briefly returned to the scene with an independent release, the rap mixtape All the World’s a Stage.

 

The singer/songwriter made a return in 2016, signing a record deal with Columbia and issuing his second full-length effort, Back from the Edge.

 

The stripped-down and reflective record was led by the singles “Say You Won’t Let Go” and “Remember Who I Was.”

 

The next year, he was featured on Rudimental’s “Sun Comes Up” and issued his own solo single, “Naked.” Arthur released a string of singles in 2018, including “Rewrite the Stars,” a duet with Anne-Marie that was featured on The Greatest Showman: Reimagined. 2019 brought the solo single “Falling Like the Stars,” along with the Ty Dolla $ign collaboration “Treehouse,” which also featured Shotty Horroh. Both singles landed on YOU, the singer/songwriter’s outward-facing third album, which released in October that year.

Lyrics:

 

I’m in the kitchen while you smoke outside

You’re careful not to let the smoke inside

I always tell you it’s poison

But I know it helps you take the edge off the day

We get a drink before it’s closing time

The one on high street with the blinking sign

All of these memories feel poignant

I won’t be there to see the snow melt away

Oh, yeah I’ve been gone on business

I’ve gotta make some money

I really feel the distance

 

And I quite miss home

And I miss you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Yeah I quite miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

When the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

Yeah I quite miss home

Yeah I quite miss home

 

I smell you cooking from the living room

And then I tell you that I love your food

I know it doesn’t come easy

But you know it reminds me where I’m from

Oh, I’m in another city

I got nobody with me

And it just hit me

 

That I quite miss home

And I miss you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Yeah I quite miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

And the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

Yeah I quite miss home

Yeah I quite miss home

 

And I quite miss home

Yeah I missed you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Oh I just miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

As the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

 

Oh I miss home, yeah I quite miss home

Oh I miss home, yeah I quite miss home

Elaborate on the song.

Covering one of my idol’s songs was not a decision I made lightly. But I knew “Kiss Me” would be the perfect way to get my peers to feel just how much her (Erykah Badu) music still bops for me.

 

I also can’t pretend like I accidentally chose a song that makes me feel sexy –you got to check yourself out sometimes! And I felt it should explicitly be queer, as this version was specially made with us in mind. When I say, ‘I want SOMEBODY to kiss me’, I mean just that, another human being. I’m so excited to share the music video with everyone!

 

Lyrics:

Kiss Me

 

I want somebody to walk up behind me

And kiss me (on my neck) and breathe (on my neck)

I want somebody to walk up behind me

And kiss me (on my neck) and breathe (on my neck)

Been such a long time

I forgot that I was fine

Just kiss me (on my neck) and breathe (on my neck)

I want somebody to walk up behind me

And kiss me (on my neck) and breathe

 

Kiss Me, Kiss Me (3x)

On my neck

 

If you want to feel me

Better be divine

Bring me water, water for my mind

Give me nothing

Breathe love in my air

Don’t abuse me

Cause these herbs are rare (Rare, Rare, Rare)

 

Kiss Me, Kiss Me (3x)

On my neck

 

I want

Somebody

To kiss me

On my neck

Norwegian singer/songwriter Ina WroldsenIna brings to light a dramatic video entitled ‘Haloes.’

 

‘Haloes’ features her angelic vocals and inspiring instrumentation.

 

The harmony between the vocals and instrumentation is exact.

 

Listeners can grab the lyrics of the song.

 

The video is well-produced.

 

And the standard of production is high.

 

More!

Norwegian singer/songwriter Ina Wroldsen began her career as a solo artist but is probably best known as a writer for other high-profile artists.

 

Her first real success as a songwriter came with her work on the British/Irish pop group the Saturdays’ debut album, Chasing Lights, in 2008.

 

The following years saw her build a large body of work that included songs for the Pussycat Dolls, Pixie Lott, Leona Lewis, and Britney Spears.

 

By 2013 she had decided to dip her toes back into performance. She and Icelandic singer/songwriter Arnthor Birgisson formed the electropop duo Ask Embla, and the pair released their debut record, Northern Light, in 2013. The album went on to become one of the most downloaded/streamed records of that year in her native Norway.

 

Her foray into her own work didn’t stunt her songwriting career and she further expanded her list of collaborators, going on to write songs for Shakira, Jess Glynne, Demi Lovato, and Olly Murs.

 

 

In 2015, DJ Calvin Harris released “How Deep Is Your Love” featuring Wroldsen’s vocal, and the single became a hit as one of the year’s most-streamed/downloaded songs.

 

In addition to her music-making and writing career, she also became a judge on the Norwegian version of Idol.

 

Wroldsen continues to write for others, contributing to Clean Bandit’s #1 singles Rockabye and Symphony, Tinie Tempah’s “Text from Your Ex” and the Brit Award-winning Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s “Ego” from his debut album, Human.

 

 

 

 

Lyrics:

Electrified, I circle starlight

I orbit round, the shadows I find

Inside of me, are rivers of gold

It’s calling me, it’s calling me home

 

Do you see that?

Flickers of light colour green right there

My love, can you feel that?

Ricochet right through the beat right there

My Love, do you hear that?

Telling us we’re the elite right here

My love, is it loud and clear?

No regrets, no fear

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re young and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re young and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re wild and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

We multiply, into an army

We touch the sky

And let the stars in

Inside of you, are rivers of gold

They’re calling me, they’re calling you home

 

Do you see that?

Flickers of light colour green right there

My love, can you feel that?

Ricochet right through the beat right there

My Love, do you hear that?

Telling us we’re the elite right here

My love, is it loud and clear?

No regrets, no fear

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re young and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re young and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

 

I see Haloes glow wherever I, I see

We’re young and free

Won’t you come

Won’t you come

Won’t you come with me

Noah Cyrus uncovers an intriguing video for the song entitled ‘Lonely.’

 

Noah sparks with her potent vocals while the song is appealing.

 

Performance is dramatic and the level of musicality is high.

 

More!

2019 is set to be the breakout year for Noah Cyrus. As one of today’s hottest up and coming artists, Cyrus has been forging her own path in pop music since her debut single “Make Me (Cry)” went straight to #1 on Spotify’s Viral Global Chart within hours of release and has since surpassed five hundred million global audio and video streams.

 

Her current single “July” has surpassed fifty million global streams, while her follow up single, “Lonely,” has surpassed ten million global streams and was released in support of Noah’s fight to raise awareness around mental health.

 

Cyrus has become known for “penning honest pop bops as an ode to her independence,” and her songs have been continually deemed “anthems,” as she continues to convey reflections on her generation.

 

She has collaborated with an impressive list of her peers including Labrinth and XXXTENTACION.

 

Cyrus has graced the stage at Coachella for two consecutive years and performed on The Tonight Show with James Corden, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, and The Today Show, among others.

Lyrics:

I’m Slowly killin’ myself

I’m trying so hard, at the back of the shelf

It’s just the same every day

I’m writing’ these songs that’ll never get played

I get told what’s wrong and what’s right

I don’t have a romantic life

And everyone’s dying

So I keep on trying to make them proud before they’re gone

 

 

Can someone help me

Ah, Please someone help me

I don’t care, anyone, anything

Cuz I’m so sick of being so lonely

I Miss all my family

Well I don’t care, anyone, anything

Cuz I’m so sick of being so lonely

 

I’m spending more than I earn

Drink all the time to forget I’m not hurt

Cuz I go to parties sometimes

And I’ll kiss a boy and pretend for the night

Cuz I don’t know much about me

I’m still ashamed of who I used to be

So I try way too hard

But I still miss the mark to fit in, fit in, woah

 

Help me

Ah, Please someone help me

I don’t care, anyone or anything

Cuz I’m so sick of being so lonely

I miss all my family

God I don’t care, anyone, anything

Cuz I’m so sick of being so lonely

 

I don’t care, anyone, anything

Cuz I’m so sick of being so lonely

It’s often said that today’s musicians don’t “pay their dues” in the way previous generations did, whether it was the Beatles’ residencies at the Star Club in Hamburg or David Bowie hauling himself around clubs for years.

 

However, JP Cooper has done all this and much more. He may now be scoring multi-platinum hits and collaborating with the likes of Stormzy.

 

However, He’s been the guy standing outside a venue, handing out flyers for his music and tracks on burned CDs.

 

He’s humped gear into the back of his Dad’s Nissan Micra to drive two hundred miles to play for twenty people, a sound engineer, and his dog.

 

JP’s songs are built on his values – positivity, empathy, and soul – and 80 + of them have been whittled down to 13 for his debut album, Raised Under Grey Skies, which has been inspired by his life and times.

 

Good Friend, for example, draws on the times when he was first signed and was “uprooted” away from family and his son. “I think labels should have a psychologist to hand,” he chuckles. “It sounds like first world problems but it’s hard, and you really find out who your friends are.”

Celebrated Sydney-born, Los Angeles-based producer Flume debuts the video for his latest single “Rushing Back” featuring Vera Blue.

 

The track is his biggest launch of 2018, debuting at #12 on the U.S. Dance/Electronic chart and streamed more than 18 million times to date.

 

“Rushing Back” follows the release of “Let You Know” featuring London Grammar, Quits, a collaborative EP with rapper Reo Cragun, as well as the much-lauded Hi This Is Flume mixtape and visualizer released earlier this year.

 

Flume (born Harley Streten) rose to prominence as a teenager with his scene-starting self-titled debut in 2012. Featuring the hits “Holding On,” “On Top,” “Sleepless” and others, the album topped the ARIA charts, garnered four spots in triple j’s Hottest 100 and sold out a massive Australian 40,000 cap tour.

 

In the two years that followed, Flume established a name as a serious international contender thanks to his compelling live show (debuting at Coachella, Lollapalooza and many others) and skillful remixes of high-profile acts including Lorde and Disclosure.

 

After a series of well-received collaborations (Lockjaw EP with Chet Faker [2014] and Some Minds with Andrew Wyatt [2015]), Flume released his second LP, Skin. Launching with the blockbuster hit “Never Be Like You” featuring Kai, and topping the ARIA Chart on release, the album reinforced Flume’s status as an inventive, boundary-pushing producer while simultaneously reaching huge new audiences around the world.

 

That year, Flume topped triple j’s Hottest 100, won seven ARIAs, an APRA Award for Songwriter of the Year and sold over 300,000 tickets globally across a sold-out 59 date world tour.

 

He achieved platinum accreditation in multiple territories around the world and took home his first Grammy Award for Best/Dance Electronic Album.

 

Lyrics:

I always let the days slip away, I should have been making up my mind

I never opened up, took it all in and now I’m running out of time

Sometimes I dream about going back, keeping all the things I left behind

But now I know you can’t change the past, way too young to know the reason why

 

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

 

I feel the gravity pulling me faster than it ever has before

When I was seventeen nicotine loving had me rushing out the door

I try to hold it back, take a breathe looking at old pictures on the floor

But I hear everything telling me you don’t have the time you gotta go

 

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

 

All the years, all the issues

All the eyes I have looked into

The stages and the love

All comes rushing back at once

 

I always let the days slip away, I should have been making up my mind

I never opened up, took it all in and now I’m running out of time

Sometimes I dream about going back, keeping all the things I left behind

But now I know you can’t change the past, way too young to know the reason why

 

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

And it all comes rushing back, rushing back

 

I always

And it all comes rushing back

And it all comes rushing back

I always

And it all comes rushing back

And it all comes rushing back

Glowie uncovers a captivating music video for the song entitled ‘Unlovable.’

 

Glowie thrills with her heavenly voice.

 

‘Unlovable’ is tuneful and inspiring while the dance routine adds to the value of the video.

 

The video is rich in eye-catching colours.

 

More!

22-year-old Icelandic native Sara Pétursdóttir also known as Glowie releases her brilliant new single Unlovable on Columbia Records.

 

Whether sharing effervescent pop bangers about bullying on her single Cruel or wearing body insecurities on her sleeve on Body, proud feminist Glowie is finding that being honest and open with another is the antidote to life’s struggles.

 

Her brand new single, Unlovable, is a comforting reminder we needn’t suffer in silence as Glowie sings, “Just know I’m still here, I still care when you feel alone and unlovable, lean on me”.

 

The video features a diverse plethora of dancers handpicked by Glowie for their inspiring body confidence and captivating moves.

 

Her continuing transfiguration of negativity through genuine connection and glittering music is a vehemently earnest testimony to her strength as an artist and the song’s message – one which will continue to resonate with and encourage the many in her generation facing a multifarious range of new difficulties in isolation to reach out.

 

Speaking about the track, Glowie says: “I instantly fell in love with this song when I first heard it. The first thing that came to mind were the people I’ve connected with through my music, and the conversations I’ve had with them over the last few years.

 

I love how comforting this song is, it’s all love and support, something that we all need, something that’s important that we all give to each other.

 

I’m very open and honest, I talk about my experiences of being a woman in this world, of being a survivor of sexual abuse, dealing with anxiety and depression and other people open up to me about their experiences.

 

It’s definitely one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever felt before, being able to connect with others in that way where we relate to each other so much and we’re able to bring comfort and support for each other.”

 

The release follows the announcement of her support on Banks’ forthcoming European tour and debut EP Where I Belong in June, which heralded widespread critical acclaim for its ability to mix glorious pop tracks with an important positive message for the masses.

 

The Banks support tour is adding to an impressive list of performances for the already acclaimed artist: handpicked by Ed Sheeran to open for him in Iceland in August, Brighton’s Great Escape Festival and a support for Marina at The Royal Albert Hall in May.

 

 

About Glowie

Born, raised and based in Reykjavik, when Glowie was not in the studio or working her way around her favourite record store, the reflective millennial could usually be found in the nearby pine forests blissing out in the silence.

 

Iceland can be an isolating place, but Glowie embraced the solitude. Bouncing between the bedrooms of her older siblings as a child gave her all the musical education she needed; Outkast, JT, and Craig David with her brother, and J.Lo, Sugababes, and Destiny’s Child with her sister.

 

 

Like many of us, Glowie grew up with uncertainty about herself and how she looked.

 

 

She caught on early that it helped to channel her feelings into art. Knowing the importance of taking care of yourself both physically and mentally proud feminist Glowie is conscious of spreading not just positivity but real talk both on social media and with her music.

 

 

Glowie released her debut single Body in October 2018. Written by Julia Michaels (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, et al.) the gold-plated banger arrived alongside a video featuring a diverse plethora of dancers handpicked by Glowie for their inspiring body confidence and captivating moves.

 

And, having met US rapper Saweetie on set in Los Angeles, Glowie then released said Saweetie version to the masses, completing the package and marking an impressive arrival for the gen Z star.

 

Her second single Cruel was penned by hitmaker and Glowie collaborator Tayla Parx (Ariana Grande, Anderson Paak, Khalid, et al.).

 

Bullied at school for being too skinny, Glowie found herself in an unhealthy relationship with her body and a whole host of uncertainty.

 

Today however she proudly wears all her vulnerabilities on her sleeve, harnessing Cruel as the luminary for a new empowered generation, hungry to live their lives through unparalleled and uncensored honesty.

 

Lyrics:

Slow down

Think you need a minute just to slow down, slow down

So gone

I can see you’re struggling just to hold on, hold on

 

Show me where you’re hurting, you’re hurting

Swimming in the deep end

Don’t say you deserve it, deserve it

When nobody else understands

 

Just know

I’m still here, I still care

When you feel alone and unlovable

Lean on me, I’ll be there

When you feel alone and unlovable

 

Sometimes

I can tell you’re acting like it’s all fine, all fine

Don’t hide

I’ll pick up the pieces if you break down, break down

 

Show me where you’re hurting, you’re hurting

Swimming in the deep end

Don’t say you deserve it, deserve it

When nobody else understands

 

Just know

I’m still here, I still care

When you feel alone and unlovable

Lean on me, I’ll be there

When you feel alone and unlovable

 

Everybody’s hurting, hurting

Swimming in the deep end

And everybody’s searching for something

Tryna find their way back again

 

Just know

I’m still here, I still care

When you feel alone and unlovable

Lean on me, I’ll be there

When you feel alone and unlovable

 

Just know

I’m still here, I still care

When you feel alone and unlovable

Lean on me, I’ll be there

When you feel alone and unlovable

 

Just know, just know I’ll be there

My love, you know I’ll be there

Just know, just know I’ll be there

When you feel alone and unlovable

“It’s been a part of my life since I had my first memory,” she says. “I’ve been singing since I could talk. Not that I was a good singer then. I had to learn, practice, get lessons and teach myself. Hard work was involved when it came to me learning how to sing. People may say, ‘It sounds like you were born with that voice.’ It was not the case at all.”

 

“No one knows who they are, but you can know what you’re trying to be”, Lola laughs, discussing navigating the industry. “My music is all the different parts of me and how I work,” she explains. In this way, it defies categorization, while every beat and melody has meaning and intention.

Lyrics:

Written by Lola Young

 

I think about death sometimes, I

think about dying next to you

I think about my ex sometimes, I

think about the things I’ll never do

I think about the mess sometimes,

that I always to seem to cause

I light a cigarette sometimes, to

forget bout all the thoughts

 

Yeah I’m young and in love with someone who don’t love me

I’m dumb I get drunk to pretend that he does, see,

I live and I learn but forget all the lessons

I’ll see you in hell if there’s such thing as heaven

 

I’m 6 feet under but the world won’t stop for me now

I keep moving cause no time don’t turn back around

Yes I love you but there’s so much room for the doubt

6 feet under I’m 6 feet under now

 

I get a little sad sometimes

I get a little scared and insecure

I go a little mad sometimes

Yeah my mind climbs up the wall

 

I can’t really comprehend sometimes

The places that I’ve been

I think about the end sometimes

The end of everything
