FKA Twigs “Pendulum”

FKA Twigs “Two Weeks”

London based singer/songwriter FKA twigs recently released her debut album LP1. The album has a sound that can be described as sensual, ethereal, emotional, soulful, electrified, ambient and evocative.

LP1 captures the current experimental sound of electronic music fused with R&B. Recommended for the adventurous listeners out there.

Nicki Minaj “Anaconda”

Sir Mix A Lot “Baby Got Back” (1992)

– This week Nicki Minaj released her “bootyfied” music video for the single “Anaconda” off her upcoming album The Pink Print. “Anaconda” heavily samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit “Baby Got Back.” If Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” shocked and awed in the 90s (now it’s a classic wedding reception party/club/party anthem) then “Anaconda” just up that level of shock and awe times 10 to the infinite power in “bootyfication.” In short: Damn that’s a lot of ass in one video!
