Pop Culture Bite - Taylor Swift's RED


By Javi Lopez

Our (or at least the one and only in my case) favorite country girl Taylor Swift is almost back with the new material she has been cultivating since the store-blower master piece Speak Now (2010) - It's called: RED. My tears of joy can tell you how excited I am.

The 16 tracks record (and possible bonus material) is expected to be released this October 22nd featuring the singles that have been floating around the web, such as: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Red and Begin Again. and this is what I think by far:

Starting with the cheessy mess that We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together is, we could tell that Taylor is not being the little crying girl we have all know (by previous albums). SHE IS NEVER EVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER WITH HIM, Y'ALL. Finally. The single is *that* song you are waiting for to be played on the radio while your are in the car with your girlfriends and... ¬°BAM! There it is and you scream, and can't deal with the situation, and you pee. In other words: I love the song.

Free Download - Fantasea by Azealia Banks


By Javi Lopez

STOP IT. YES, STOP. ok, Continue - The 21 years old New Yorker has brought a pussy-pop worthy mix tape 'Fantasea'. This RAP-ist has litterally done my ears. And for good. Is not just because it's aggressive rap as I like it, but because it has that hard bass, pop dipped (the most important part), club worthy and pole dancing material. Yes, That kinky.

The mixtape has a good, fierce start with 'Out of Space' - Strong Miss Bank$'s verses make it one of the best songs in it, unlike Neptune, making it a weak point on the album. You can even somehow think of Nicki Minaj when you listen to it. It is bad. I'm sorry.

I'm dancing my ass off to "Esta Noche" as I type this, my favourite track by far. You just have to listen to it to fall in love and feel all sleazy. Fantasea, Aquababe and Ima read leave you with a feeling that there should be more of them, and you just wait for it to continue and nothing happens. TEASE.

IN SUMMARY: Azealia Banks has brought something different, something you can listen to and not feel ashamed to share it. 'Fantasea' is a 8/10 mixtape and you can download it for free here and listen to 'Esta Noche' perfection below.

Shall we? shall we.....
