New Music Friday!

Happy weekend, buttcakes! It’s New Music Friday! Last week’s NMF is going to be tough to beat. But there is some good stuff this week!

Selena Gomez ft. Myke Towers – Dámelo To’

Selena Gomez officially released her first 7-track EP entirely in Spanish, Revelación. In an interview with Apple Music, Selena said that a project is something she has wanted to do for 10 years because she is proud of her heritage.

Here is Dámelo To’, which means “Give it to me.” This song is about doin’ it.

Stay, I want to lose my manners until dawn
And all you have to do, you already know
You say my name and I don’t care about anything
Others try but no, they never achieved anything
Others try but no
Finish what you started…


Nick Jonas – 2Drunk

The most popular Jonas brother just released his studio album Spaceman. This is Jonas’ first solo album since 2016 when he released Last Year Was Complicated. When singing with his brothers, it’s that bubble gum pop for the teenage girls. Solo Nick Jonas is definitely leaning more to the R&B side.

This is definitely a song I can relate to. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been waaaay 2Drunk.

Too drunk and I’m all in my feelings
Oh, well, now I’m high as the ceiling
And, oh, I think I just hit my stride
Till I wake up and hate my life

Rosé – On The Ground

Blackpink and K-pop fans have been waiting for this album for a long time. Rosé’s first solo album, R dropped today and reactions have been mixed.

We have a little bit of everything from her fans. We’ll let you be the judge.

Here is Korean pop superstar, Rosé with On The Ground

My life’s been magic seems fantastic
I used to have a hole in the wall with a mattress
It’s funny when you want it
Suddenly you have it
You find out that your gold’s just plastic

Machine Gun Kelly ft. CORPSE – DAYWALKER!

Now for something completely different.

DAYWALKER! is intense and actually gives me anxiety…but I kind of like it. This song is its own new genre…like “Screamo Whisper Rap.” I know that doesn’t make any sense at all and is an absolute contradiction, but you’ll understand when you hear the song.

AJ Mitchell – Cameras On

AJ Mitchell does not get nearly enough attention. I started listening to him when I randomly heard I Don’t Want You Back and his vocals blew me away. This dude can hit some ball-crushing notes, and I think the 19-year-old deserves a much brighter spotlight.

Check out his new single, Cameras On

Yeah I’ve seen it in my past
Yeah that fake love it don’t last
And I know what it will do to me (I know)
When I think they want me well
They tryin’ to make me someone else
And I know what that will do to me (I know)

Conclusion

We had some highly-anticipated releases this week. None more anticipated than Rosé. There is a lot more to hear, so check out Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist right here!

Is Blackpink’s Lisa Being Sabotaged by YG?

I woke up to “YG Stop Sabotaging Lisa” trending on Twitter today. The alleged mismanagement of the Blackpink superstar from Thailand has been a topic of controversy for quite a while. Fans are officially tired of it.

Lalisa Manoban

Back in 2010, Lisa auditioned for YG Entertainment in Thailand at the age of 13. Out of 4,000 others, she was the only one chosen by the South Korean entertainment company. Yang Hyun-suk, CEO of YG, officially offered young Lisa a position as a trainee.

At 14, Lisa packed her bags and moved to Korea to become YG’s first non-ethnically Korean artist to join the company. Her training lasted 5 years before she officially made her debut as a member of Blackpink in 2016.

#RespectLisa

On February 2, 2021, #RespectLisa trended all over the internet after anti-fans racially abused Lisa. These comments mainly came from group chats in China and Turkey. They were based on her appearance and the fact that she is from Thailand…which is just plain ignorant. I lived in Thailand. It is a beautiful country and the people are lovely and attractive.

Leaked messages from the group chats called her ugly because she has dark skin, they said she looks like a man and even called her a “ladyboy” which is what Transgender people are labeled as in Thailand.

I mean, seriously? (Photo by Rich Fury/Getty Images for Coachella)

Real BLINKs came to her rescue with the hashtag, #RespectLisa.

K-Pop Scandal

The Korean pop industry is no stranger to scandal and controversy. Everything from sex slavery, prostitution, drug rings, assault, rape, and a string of suicides. Some really disturbing stuff. For some specific examples, watch this video:

#YGStopSabotagingLisa

YG is now being accused of sabotaging Lisa’s career in a variety of ways. They are making it look like simple mismanagement, but there seems to be a lot more to it.

#YGStopSabotagingLisa started trending on Twitter this morning. BLINKs are DONE with YG. Here are some examples.

Intentionally sabotaging her style. It is well-known that YG and other entertainment companies control everything their artists say, do, and wear.

Intentionally sabotaging her relationships with brands she is affiliated with.

Intentionally not providing security for her while other members are surrounded by bodyguards.

Intentionally leaving her out of Blackpink promotional materials.

Conclusion

In my opinion, it is clear that something fishy is going on with YG. In fact, it couldn’t be more obvious. If you are a Blackpink and Lisa fan, show her some love. #ygstopsabotaginglisa.

Lisa’s first solo album will be released soon and YG has not promoted it at all. Here’s her first single, Say So.

Let me know what you think in the comments, and show your support for Lisa!

New Releases From Rosé and Lisa of K-Pop Supergroup, BLACKPINK

That’s right, K-Pop fans. The long-awaited solo projects have been released by the ladies this month. Both tracks are in English and they are both catchy as hell.

Lisa ​리사- Say So

On February 2, Lisa, the rapper from Thailand and member of the South Korean pop group dropped an absolute banger, Say So. With nearly 2 million views on YouTube, it’s safe to say this solo project is a success. Check it out here:

Day to night to morning, keep with me in the moment
I’d let you had I known it, why don’t you say so?
Didn’t even notice, no punches left to roll with
You got to keep me focused; you want it? Say so

Rosé Love Is Gone (로제 GONE 가사)

Love Is Gone is Rosé’s first solo venture. The song has not officially been released yet, and she is asking her fans not to share the leaked content, so I will give you the teaser she posted before her performance of The Show last week. I have heard the whole song and I can tell you the song is beautiful, and her voice is as stunning as she is. Here is the teaser for Love Is Gone.
