From her new CD, “Sale el Sol”, Shakira brings back her blonde hair style, a HOT salsa beat, and Spanglish lyrics as the lyrics alternate between Spanish and English throughout the song. It’s scenes of Shakira walking in the countryside, in a bathtub, on her bed, and dancing. Hmmm, that describes most of Shakira’s videos but if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
“WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN” RIHANNA
Rihanna’s back with a Euro-dance pop video that must have broke the bank. Multiple set locations, five or six intricate costume changes, special effects, multiple choreographed dances, a big budget video that ultimately suffers from trying to do too much in four minutes. Love Rihanna and her style, this song is pretty good by her standards, but still better than most of the videos out today.
“DIRT AND ROSES” RISE AGAINST
Rise Against join an all-star lineup on the “Avengers” movie soundtrack. “Dirt & Roses” is a highlight, punk rock beats, a chorus that stick in your head, Tim’s scream at the end, great summer song! Rise Against just toured St Petersburg with A Day To Remember, heard it was a great show! Anyone know if this song was used in the actual movie?
