Tokio Hotel is back with a new single after not long ago the band released ‘Melancholic Paradise’. I have to say, listening to this new track makes me feel like I’m back in time somehow when Bill Kaulitz was screaming his heart out on rock vibes. The die-hard fans noticed the similarity, and for sure it brought back a lot of memories from the “Humanoid” era for example. ‘When It Rains It Pours’ has a music video starring mainly Tom Kaulitz who’s rocking his guitar, his hair and at the same time doing a favor to viewers. On a very serious note, Tokio Hotel managed successfully to bring back the 90’s. Who’s in?
Cro is back with new work, this time gifting us with the collaboration he did with German band KitschKrieg, in which he raps next to the extraordinaire voices of AnnenMayKantereit and Trettmann. I could not have picked a better mix of artists to create this wunderschön track ‘5 Minuten’, as KitschKrieg named the work. There comes Cro, rapping lyrics in his signature style – sensual and sleepy. Next, there’s AnnenMayKantereit with a one of a kind ”sehr süß face. When he starts singing you get electrocuted. The guy with the sweetest face has the manliest voice you probably have heard in a very long time. This is the experience of a lifetime. You’ll never feel anything like it. And then there Trettmann, known for his reggae rapping style. He’s cool and talented. On another note, I literally don’t know who to thank for such a great collaboration. Whoever came up with the idea of bringing all these voices together deserves an award. ‘5 Minuten’ ladies and gentleman!
Jason Derulo pulled out a collab to be remembered between him, LAY and NCT 127. ‘Let’s Shut Up & Dance’ sounds like a good invitation, and obviously, we are not going to refuse it. As for LAY, the singer is doing pretty well in his solo career, considering he is also busy with his EXO projects. Congrats to boy band NCT 127 too. They look amazing in the video, which btw, have you seen it? Those video effects, damn! LAY’s sensual voice has been catching attention, and when I say ‘sensual’ I am just saying it the way it sounds to me. And it’s all good and fun. I am really enjoying this track and I love the music video.
Swiss pop-rock band Pegasus is back with a new single from their latest album, ‘Beautiful Life’. To celebrate the release, the guys have made a music video to go along with the poetic lyrics of their song, Metropolitans. “While somebody is dreaming, dreaming of someone like you…” and a whole bunch of tantalizing words and sentences make the song quite a motivating material for anybody who might need a lil push in a blurry day. As for the music video, I can’t get over the train ride (or is it a metro?) which seems to take place above the city drawn in lights in the darkness of the evening. Can’t wait to hear more from this new album, which so far got me hooked thanks to a good vibe selection with mellow tunes and powerful words.
Third studio album from German artist Cro keeps on proving to be with each release quite the catch if we only take a look at the tracks released to the public so far. If you have time, take a look at that and then try out his latest MV. Yes, that’s right, Cro has released a new track from album ‘Tru’ and it is called ‘todas’. The song is a collab between the German rapper and artist Wyclef Jean. Cool urban outfits and almost naked girls are part of the visuals of this new MV, giving you options. Either way, it wins you over. Me? I’m all for Cro and the fashion. And you?
French Electro duo Juveniles are adding a new MV to their latest album Without Warning, this time for the track Comfort Girl, a collaborative work they did with singer and VJ Helen Feng. Feng not only dives into the lyrics of the track with her earthy voice, but she’s also acting in the visuals for the music video, alongside Juveniles members. The track is sensual, slowly captivating you into a pleasant trance. Together with Someone Better and Decoy, this recent MV adds a much-needed dose of creativity for the public to know more about the band style.

South Korean boy band BTS is back with their latest mini-album, with an official release for today, 18th September. A first track has been making the rounds of the internet, everyone crushing over Jimin’s solo appearance in Serendipity, as the song is called, since September 4. Back to this new album, called Love Yourself – Her, the title gives hope to a second part, given the manner. First track coming out after the official release is DNA, announced with two video teasers in the last couple of days, Just a couple of minutes ago DNA music video has been released, a reason for Army’s all around the world to celebrate.
Swiss artists Stress, Evelinn Trouble and guitarist Gabriel Spahni from Pegasus band combined their talents into a brand new musical project, naming it Trust. The revealing happened not too long ago, at least that’s how things happened for an international music stalker like myself. Individually, each of the three musketeers is a well-established artist inside the Swiss music arena and each is playing different genres. To prove it we only have to look at Stress’s impressive collection of Rap that he has been playing since forever. Despite his favorite genre, the artist has proved several times to be quite versatile, working with different artists and keeping it interesting. Joining Trust as a bandmate just shows his ambition to reach new heights.
As for Evelinn Trouble and Gabriel Spahni, these two are closer to home with this project, style wise speaking. And if we are to name the least alienated, I will point to Spahni, whose backing vocals and guitar work added wonderfully throughout the years to Pegasus, a band with a pop rock feel, highly popular in Switzerland.
The new band has recently released Welcome To The West‘s music video, and with that Trust has given us two of the four tracks from their eponymous mini album, after the unraveling of ‘Volcanos’ in April this year.
Genre: urban folk
German artist Cro, singer of raop, as himself is saying, has released at the beginning of June a Cro music track from the upcoming album, with an official date release for 08.09.2017. Pretty clear, right? Not to me. The album title does not disappoint, being millennial appropriate, cool and rebellious but touched by mannerism. And if I indeed have made you curious, it only means that it’s time to beat the drums and announce the “Fake You” title. You have to love this artist for his style.
For the teaser track called “Baum”, translated tree, Cro has spoiled its fans with lots of dope video effects, compiled into a slightly suggestive music video. The lyrics and the story have raised speculations amongst the fans of the artist. Known to be highly private of his personal life and possessive of his panda mask public persona, Cro seems to have had a change of mind, or at least that’s what the music video would suggest. Or not. The point is, Cro seems to enjoy giving its artistry an intriguing storyline but at the same time, keeping the good vibes.
The artist contributed with soundtrack In Love (feat. Teesy) to the 2016 movie Unsere Zeit Ist Jetzt, in which he played as himself. This new album and recent track “Baum” are the perfect gifts the artist has for 2017 to give to its fans.
UPDATE: Cro seems to have had a change of mind regarding the title of his latest album and changed it from ‘Fake You’ to a more polite sounding “Tru”. No matter the name he chooses, the music he has created is undoubtedly great. So “Tru” it is.
