These ladies created all sorts of headlines yesterday after their new single was released and when you hear how awesomely catchy it is, you'll fully understand.
check it out:
Is she attempting to reinvent herself? Is Lady Gaga realizing her star has been falling from the top for a while now? Here she has announced this morning on the Today Show that she will be releasing a Jazz album with legend, Tony Bennett. "Cheek to Cheek" has been in the works and will be released on September 23rd.
On working with Bennett, Lady Gaga said, "The collaboration has been so wonderful. It’s so natural singing with Tony,” Gaga said. “I just learn so much from him every day. I’m so happy.”
Tony Bennett, who is pushing 90 couldn't have been more thrilled to work with Gaga, "“She sings so wonderful and she’s actually really a great jazz singer,” Bennett said. “She improvises every time we do a song. We do it over and over and it’s different every time.”
Well, hello there Katy Perry...
#ThenAndNow Jason Mraz instally shot to number 1 with his 2005 release "Mr A-Z" and this week his released, yet another studio album for us all to soak in. The new album "Yes" is out now! Here's a little throwback and new track for ya, too!
"Geek In the Pink" 2005
"Love Someone" 2014
After 14 studio albums - yes, 14, Weird Al has finally accomplished something he may have only dreamt of. What could that possibly be, you ask? Without knowing, he does get approval from the artist of the songs he parodies, so their approval ain't it! He's finally achieved number 1 status. Can you believe that after all of his, in some cases, unbelievable succes, it took him 30 years to reach the top of the charts? Oddly enough, his last disc which came out back in 2011, "Alpocolypse" was his highest charted prior to his most recent release, "Mandatory Fun."
Maybe growing up we just didn't give Weird Al the credit he deserved...or maybe we're just not buying music like we used to and it's easier to get a number one these days; whatever the case, congratulations goes out to Weirdl Al for achieving something he's been attempting for as long as I've been alive.
In a matter of a week we were graced with two of the biggest male performers in Top40 today and honsetly, most likely for this generation. Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars definitely show their influences, from Michael Jackson to Sting, and to witness them both live, at two sold out shows right here in the Capital Region within days of each other is an experience unlike any other.
Justin took the Times Union Center stage on Wednesday night, taking that stage in the air and through the entire capacity audience who screamed and sang along with excitement. Playing for over 2 and a half hours and over 20 songs, he proved to Albany why he's been successful in the entertainment business since the 90s/
Bruno took the stage Sunday night to another packed house with people outside begging for tickets. With a 70s style stage, band and design he soulfully took over the crowd and made proverbial love to each and every one of them gently.
