MHM: Chris Brown featuring Justin Bieber: ‘Ladies Love Me’

Chris Brown is all about the big name collaborations these days: recently, he’s teamed up with Benny BenassiLil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Twista. In keeping with this theme, Chris has teamed up with  current king of teen pop, Justin Bieber, on new single Ladies Love Me, a followup to their recent collaboration Next to You.

Premiered on Youtube last week, the single features both Chris and Bieber rapping, and features some sample lyrics from  previous single Look At Me Now, in which Chris teamed up with Weezy and Busta. Surprisingly, Bieber isn’t actually too bad at rapping. Still a controversial choice, not quite in keeping with Chris Brown’s more mature image.

Bluey Robinson’s debut single ‘Showgirl’ has been out for just over a month but already the London-based singer/songwriter is in high demand, and set to take his music even further as he gears up to play the iTunes Festival on Sunday 17th July.

Bluey already has an enormous fan base thanks to his Youtube videos, several of which show him performing acoustic street sessions all over London and Paris. The video for ‘Showgirl’, co-starring Made in Chelsea‘s Funda Onal, currently holds over 240,000 hits.

MHM – Lady Gaga: ‘Edge of Glory’

Music Hit or Miss”

Lady Gaga headlined Radio One’s Big Weekend yesterday and wowed the 20,000 strong crowd with an imaginative set of her biggest hits and even a country number that was dedicated to Prince William and Catherine.

But the best number she did was her new song, Edge of Glory which Gaga dedicated to her Grandfather and performed whist playing the piano. Emotions got to the better of her though as she was sobbing by the end but the crowd didn’t mind.

MHM – Frank Ocean: ‘Swim Good’

Music Hit or Miss”

Frank Ocean’s mix tape dropped earlier this year to critical acclaim with Rolling Stone’s Jonah Weiner calling him “a gifted avant-R&B smoothie”. The New Orleans boy was evacuated in 2005 during hurricane Katrina and moved to Los Angeles where he stayed and joined a collective group called Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.

With the release of his solo work though it seems that Ocean is going from strength to strength.

MHM – Beyoncé: ‘Run The World (Girls)’

Music Hit or Miss”

Beyoncé is back to defend her title as the Queen of RnB but what does everyone have to say with Rihanna dominating the charts? Sadly unlike Rihanna, Beyoncé appears to be receiving very mixed reactions to her new song ‘Run The World (Girls)’… some good and some bad.

With her aggressive tone Beyoncé is not shy about the fact that she is an advocate for Female Empowerment.  This is the first single of the yet to be named new album by Beyoncé, but until we see the video we are not convinced that this really is the start of the ‘B Revolution’ that we were promised.

Run The World will be a massive hit, but we just feel its lacking that Beyoncé touch that makes her music so good!

Sassi PR have rated ‘Run The World (Girls)’ : RATING 3/5

MHM – Bruno Mars: ‘The Lazy Song’

Music Hit or Miss”

This is the third single by Mr Mars from the album Doo-Wops and Hooligans and it does not disappoint. Bruno sings about how he will be just chilling because he can over a great Reggae beat with RnB and Pop influences.

The video sees Bruno Mars in his bedroom, larking around with five dancing chimpanzees. You can tell that they are having a great laugh doing the video with some dance moves looking like they have come straight from a line-dancing class.

All in all, it’s a great chill out song and has made us like the cheeky Bruno Mars even more.
