Albums I'm Listening To

There's been a lot of good music released lately so I thought I'd share what I'm listening to. It's an interesting mix but hopefully you find something new to listen to:

Don't judge! Lady Gaga knows how to create catchy, pop tunes and "ARTPOP" is no different. I like all of her albums so if you're not a Lady Gaga fan than skip. So far I'm only in love with half of the songs but as I'm sure with most pop music, the others will grow on me. Not sure why she needed another song called Fashion though... but I digress. You can watch the uncomfortable SNL performance of "Do What You Want" with R. Kelly:

Eminem continues to prove he can still be great artist sober - love it! At first I was not happy he decided to call it "Marshall Mathers LP 2" since it didn't seem very creative but then he explained it was a continuation of the story, which I kind of get. He tells a story (I feel) with this album as it opens up with "Bad Boy" so bravo to him as an artist for actually thinking the whole thing through rather than "let's throw a bunch of hit songs on here." I'm addicted to "Monster" and can't help but sing RiRi's part lol. I can listen to the album all the way through, which is not an easy feat. P.S. Head over to Join the Gossip's blog for some Eminem Man Candy.

M.I.A.'s "Matangi" is a powerhouse pop/hip hop album. If you want to dance... then get this album! Pretty much every song is something to dance/workout too which is great for helping you get through the day. Check out her YouTube awards performance to get a taste:

HAIM "Days Are Gone." My co-worker introduced me to them and they're actually going to be performing on SNL this Saturday! It's great pop music - think Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Icona Pop. We don't need to be so serious all the time. I'm loving "Don't Save Me."

Also, Lily Allen finally released a new single (no album yet) called "Hard Out Here" which for some stupid reason has been controversial. Check it out on The Luxury Spot!

What albums are you listening to lately?

  1. I'm so obsessed with Haim. I'm also listening to The Luminaires (seeing them live next week) and Bastille: my album of the year.

  2. All of these albums sound really great. I'm a big M.I.A. fan and it's always a treat when Eminem puts out a new record.

  3. I need to get the new Eminem album and I want to check out MIA's too! I used to be a big lady gaga fan but the hype died for me. I dont think I will actually purchase the album.

  4. AW thanks for the shoutout!! I've legit been listening to MMLP2 on repeat for two weeks straight - from the time I wake up, until I get home from work! So good. I LOVE all of the samples!

    I debated buying Haim's album a few months ago but didn't. Maybe I should! I am obseesed with The Wire, I think that's the title :)
