Taylor Swift – You Need To Calm Down
Taylor Swift’s new song is released in support of gay people, which is nice I guess. It’d be nicer if the song were any good and if it didn’t have lines like “‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay.” Taylor Swift’s last couple of songs have been really bad, appearing to be marketing plots without an ounce of sincerity. Her upcoming album will be called “Lover.” Let’s hope it has at least has a couple of songs that have something to say.
Jai Paul – Do You Love Her Now
After a long break, beloved English musician Jai Paul is back with two new songs, with “Do You Love Her Now” being the obvious slow-burn. His music, which has been extremely influential in the music industry, proves that there’s still much more he can do with the R&B genre, and that artists from all over the world would be wise to take some inspiration.
The Chemical Brothers – Eve of Destruction
The Chemical Brothers’ music can’t be limited to their sound. The band is so distinct in style and look that you always have to account for the experience that their trying to produce. While “Eve of Destruction” isn’t the band’s most fun or unique song, blurring together by the middle, the music video and its style is incredible. I can only imagine how this experience translates to a live performance.
