I am a little late on this but I still felt like I needed to write about it.

Victoria Justice officially released her first single unaffiliated with Nickelodeon on Tuesday, June 18th. Justice stated many times that this album was going to be completely “her.” And I feel that this song definitely is.  It is a breath of fresh air compared to many songs that are being released lately. It has a “feel-good” vibe and is honestly one of the catchiest songs I have ever heard. Plus, Victoria Justice in the art work isn’t hard to look at either ;).

People are comparing Justice’s single to Britt Nicoles own song, “Gold.”  The only part that sounds similar for me is when Justice says the word gold. I believe that Justice’s single is much better. The single sounds a bit like Bridgit Mendler and Justice even throws in a few notes that sound very Sara Bareilles-esque

Unfortunately, I do not believe that “Gold” will get the exposure or reach the popularity that her fellow Victorious cast mate Ariana Grande’s “The Way” did.  It was not even featured on iTune’s main new music page (why??). However, if the song does get the exposure it deserves, I think it could be a smash.

Also check out Britt Nicole’s, “Gold.” Which song is better?

Miley Cyrus- We Can’t Stop Video- Uncomfortably Awesome

The much anticipated video of Miley Cyrus’s ” We Can’t Stop” has officially dropped as of 11 hours ago, and all I can think of is WOW.

WOW for two reasons. 1. Weird. 2. Fantastic

1. Weird.

I am a fan of Miley Cyrus because she stays true to who she is.  She has never pretended she was “innocent” in order to keep her young fans from the wildly popular “Hannah Montana.”  But because I do remember her as a child star this video is a tad uncomfortable.  She takes her new found love “twerking” to a whole new level.  She dances and moves very provocatively and there are many weird visuals like a girl cutting off her fingers, a man eating a money sandwich,  and awkward sexual gestures. However, as uncomfortable as it was, throughout the entire video i was also thinking, “perfection.”

2. Fantastic.

I truly believe that this video is absolutely perfect for this song.  “We Can’t Stop” is a whole new sound for Miley, therefore, the video needed to be completely different than anything she has done before.  The video was incredibly weird, but in a good way.  She shows that she is growing up, but without overdoing it.  She doesn’t show too much skin, she isn’t “grinding” on guys, but she definitely establishes her maturity.  I believe this video will increase the popularity of her single, and possibly even get it placed into the Billboard Hot 100. Only time will tell.

Fifth Harmony- Miss Movin’ On

Fifth Harmony is a girl group who originated on the widely popular, The X Factor. They have debuted their first single, Miss Movin’ On and I am pleasantly surprised.  The song is definitely a pop song, however it feels incredibly fresh. The vocals are on point the melody is very enjoyable.  I do not know yet if the song will become a hit, but I definitely believe it will give Fifth Harmony the platform to succeed in future projects.

I definitely think Fifth Harmony is here to stay. Check out their new single Miss Movin’ On
