I don’t believe the The Recording Academy will deny selecting Halsey or Lukas Graham for Best New Artist at next year’s Grammy Awards.
Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage. Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.” Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”
They actually haven’t. A band that’s been around since 1995, they’ve performed at the ceremony, presented there, even announced Tom DeLonge returning to the band there.
I find I have to search for new music every year. Apart from those that are promoted heavily, generally consumers are left in the dark, unless they go surfing online or hear about something by word of mouth. Last year one of my favorites, that seems like it will never stop getting exposure, is the song “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
The 58th Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on Monday, February 15, 2016 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. A couple months ago, I wrote about a few artists I believed were worthy of recognition, and they’re all among the artists nominated…
Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand and Smokey Robinson all have new music out. Streisand and Robinson’s CDs are duet projects, and Franklin’s release is an album of covers, including classics from Etta James to Adele.
Katy Perry’s new single “Roar” will surely take the number-one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart next week. The song was held off from taking the top of the chart by Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” which holds the position for an 11th week. The hit tune, featuring T.I. and Pharrell, leads “Radio Songs” for a seventh week according to Nielsen BDS reports. Thike’s track barely held off Perry’s “Roar,” which went from 85 to Number-2, following its first full week of single sales.
