Owl City | Ocean Eyes | Retro Album Review

Republic Records Rating: 5 out of 5 stars Owl City’s career may have mostly collapsed after 2012, but his second album Ocean Eyes defined electro-pop music of the early 2010s. Released in 2009, Ocean Eyes contains a myriad of sunshine-y, light, electric pop hits.   Of course, the album would

Megan Thee Stallion | Savage | Single Review

300 Rating: Thumbs Up Megan Thee Stallion’s latest single “Savage” is sassy, moody, and nasty. The song begins with Megan reminding listeners that she is still that bitch and will forever be. Megan’s overall flow is catchy and interesting enough to keep the attention of the audience.

Christina Aguilera | Loyal Brave True | Single Review

Walt Disney Records Rating: Thumbs Up Even though the remake of Mulan was postponed due to COVID–19, Disney decided to release the single “Loyal Brave True” by Christina Aguilera. The song is soft from the beginning with bowed stringed instruments, zither, and piano playing quietly.

Lil Uzi Vert | Eternal Atake | Album Review

Atlantic Records Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Three years  after Luv Is Rage 2, Lil Uzi Vert returned to the recording studios, releasing his third studio album in Eternal Atake. An album that may seem overly long with its 18 tracks, Eternal Atake is anything but that. It is rather an hour-long
