“FEEL THIS MOMENT” CHRISTINA AGUILERA with PITBULL
This week’s big world premiere video teams up Mr. Worldwide, Pitbull, with the former Mouseketeer, Christina Aguilera. The electro-dance black and white clip features Christina strutting in full Diva mode. Pitbull’s up to his typical antics with lasers, confetti cannons, and a propulsive heavy bass dance track. a-Ha’s 80’s classic, Take On Me, is recreated (not sampled) and the familiar beats bring instant familiarity to the ‘Feel This Moment’ chorus. The song is currently #3 on iTunes this week.
“REMIX (I LIKE THE)” NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK
Lock up your 40 year old daughters, a boy band reunion concert will be selling out arenas this summer. New Kids On The Block (NKOTB now) are touring the United States with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. With original lineups still intact (except for Boyz II Men), the memories and nostalgia will be on overload with this reunion lineup. NKOTB will be supporting their new CD, 10, set for an April 2nd release date. The lead video is stylish, well produced, great harmony, and it’s a lot better than most of the pop records on the charts today.
“LEMON SCENT” DEAD SARA
Not every new video this week is bubblegum pop and dance music. Alternative rockers, Dead Sara, are back with the follow-up to Sorry For It All. Lemon Scent is a hard driving rocker that will remind you of the best of Courtney Love. A female fight club, not sure what is more violent, the action in the ring or Emily Armstrong attack of the microphone! Emily is definitely a female rocker to keep your eye on. They’re currently supporting Muse on tour and excellent live reviews on Dead Sara’s set is building their following with each concert date.
