Top 5ive: Lindsay Lohan Singles

I don’t know about you but I have been straight up LIVING for Lindsay Lohan’s newest TV venture called “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” I’m all for boss LiLo. She literally takes no prisons in the show and who can blame her. It’s her name, and her brand. I would be doing that same thing. In honor of this, I thought it would be fitting to countdown her biggest singles.

Of course I want my own show LiLo.

“Bossy”

While this wasn’t an official single, it was slated to be the newest single off of her never-released third album. This song is a sleeper bop. It’s not as catchy as her previous song but it was still something that you can jam out to because it has a dance beat. It was released in 2008, it didn’t get the attention it deserves until MTV pulled it out of its life of obscurity. It’s now theme song for “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.” That’s because she’s now a boss bitch. It’s about time that “Bossy” gets into that limelight.

“Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)”

Honestly, This is my favorite song that she has done just because it’s just so raw and emotional. It came off of her second album “A Little More Personal (Raw)” and it was her ode to daddy issues. It was an open letter to her father, Michael, and was just her way to express her feeling. The raspy vocals with the rock feel of the song are so good. Lindsay even directed the video, which was just even better because it was raw, emotional, and just disturbing. I recommend watching the video if you haven’t already.

“Over”

This is a deep cut song off of her first album “Speak.” Sure, it was a single but it was just an underrated single. It’s a pop-rock ballad that has opens with a slow and steady beat before kicking into high gear for a power ballad. The video itself tells the story of the so well. Forbidden love, emotional baggage, and the stereotypical early 2000s garage band singling in the song. I remember thinking that this was scandalous at the time due to the scenes in the camper. sigh. If that camper could talk.

“Rumors”

Lindsay’s first single is probably her most famous and the most relatable until “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” It’s a forgot gem unless you stan Lindsay or was around during this time. The song is all about her relationship with the paparazzi and how everyone was trying to start rumors about her. It was the literal precursor to Miley Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed.” I honestly forgot how much of a banger this song was until I turned it up and got down to it. Like, it’s everything.

Honorable Mention

“Drama Girl (That Girl)”

While we can all agree that the movie, “Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen,” was a dumpster fire train wreck of crap. The song from the song is actually a bop. It’s probably the best part of the entire movie. The song was the final song in the movie was the big final number the movie’s musical portion. The video itself is your standard promotional music video for a movie. It has Lindsay performing in an audition while clips from the movie play in the background. Not iconic to make the list official but something that shouldn’t be totally overlooked

“Ultimate”

While this isn’t an official single and apart of her solo discography, this is probably her best known and loved song. It from her hit 2003 movie “Freaky Friday,” a remake of a Disney movie that came out in 1976. It’s our first glance at the fact that Lindsay had some pipes on her. Before this, she was there but lost in the crowd of her peers. This movie and song are what really pushed Lindsay Lohan into stardom. Without, we wouldn’t be blessed with her talents like we are today.

I highly recommend checking out Lindsay Lohan’s albums because they aren’t all that bad. In fact, I wish we will get more music from her. I need more Lindsay’s music. Also, I need more of that iconic dance that she was doing at her club.

Jojo shows ‘Mad Love’ with her third album

It’s a new month and a new year. Since it’s January and this artist just re-released all of her old music, it’s only fitting to dedicate a whole month to her. Welcome to Jojo January. No, it’s for JoJo Siwa and her obsession with big bows. That’s all the jokes I’m going to make about her since she’s only like 8 years old. I’m talking about the original teen queen Jojo. There are four Fridays in January and she happens to have three albums and two extra songs on iTunes.

The final Friday in Jojo January is here! It’s been a fun time and it’s rather sad that it’s coming to close but at least we’ve gotten to the happier time. It’s time to review the latest album that Miss Levesque has given into the world. Let’s talk about “Mad Love.”

Fake Ass Bitches

“Mad Love” was released in 2016 by Jojo. It came out 10 years after her second album “The High Road.” It was a long time coming and honestly one of the most anticipated releases of Jojo’s entire career. It was her first release on her new label Atlantic Records. They did her right. It was finally here. We final got the third album we should have gotten five to six years ago.

The album itself is literally everything. It was Jojo’s first adulthood album. The themes in the album have more of a mature feel to it. It has explicit lyrics to some of the song and as you probably are aware, I live for child/teen stars swearing up a storm. So hearing Jojo say the f word made this album for me.

The album tells and takes you through a story. It’s a slightly emotional start with the song “Music” before getting lighter and more upbeat. The album still has its moments but it has a decent amount of bops with this album. Some of my faves or “I Can Only,” “Fuck Apologies,” “FAB,” “High Heels,” “Edibles,” and “Vibe.” I’m a sucker for killer vocals and good beat.

I do wish that the song from her EP “III” would have made it on to the album. I get why they aren’t but they would have been a better fit than some of the song on the album. Even just as extra songs. “III” was a good taste for what we got in “Mad Love,” it’s just a shame that those three songs were over looked.

Verdict

“Mad Love” is the album that I highly recommend to everyone. It takes you on a journey from start to finish. It’s not an overly emotional journey but still a journey. Some songs are better than others but overall, it’s everything. It’s not like “The High Road” but it’s still a great album. “Mad Love” is a instant classic album.

I highly recommend also checking out Jojo’s mixtapes because they too are fire.

The Fall and Rise of Jojo’s ‘Disaster’

It’s a new month and a new year. Since it’s January and this artist just re-released all of her old music, it’s only fitting to dedicate a whole month to her. Welcome to Jojo January. No, it’s for JoJo Siwa and her obsession with big bows. That’s all the jokes I’m going to make about her since she’s only like 8 years old. I’m talking about the original teen queen Jojo. There are four Fridays in January and she happens to have three albums and two extra songs on iTunes.

We have now gotten into the depressing part of Jojo January. It’s time that we get into the part where she didn’t give the world a third album until 2016. Yep, it took her 10 years for her to get us the highly anticipated follow up to “The High Road.” I feel like this has turned into a series about Jojo. I’m okay with this. Let’s cover what would have been the first single off of her third album “Jumping Trains.” This one will be the original version because the video is still up on her VEVO page.

You shot the bullet that killed me

Before we get into “Disaster,” here’s the cliff notes version of what happened. It’s a lot that happened to young Jojo. Oh, I’m not going to cover “Demonstrate.” It’s not an official single. It’s apart of her story so I’ll post my thoughts on it.

“Disaster” was released in 2011. It was supposed to be the first single off of her then third album “All I Want is Everything.” The album was actually completed back in 2009 but was waiting for her then-label Blackground and Da Family Entertainment Records to sign distribution rights to release it. When they failed to do so, she sued them and won. After she won, she was released from her contract and Blackground Records set up for the album to release on Interscope Records.

That ended up falling through. During this time, Jojo also remade her third album. They planned on having “Demonstrate” being the new first single for the new third album called “Jumping Trains.” It wasn’t until 2013 that Jojo was fully free from Blackground. That came at a price as her discography and back catalog under Blackground records. Hence, why she re-recorded and re-release all her old music. I hope that all made sense because it’s a lot. Oh here’s the court complaint aka the tea.

The song

“Disaster” is what I would consider the sister song to her hit “Too Little Too Late.” It has the same feeling of that song. The song is catchy and upbeat and just feels like an anthem. It has a pop rock/power pop feel to the song. It’s kind of like the 2010’s version of “Since U Been Gone.”

The song is about being in a relationship going south and just not being like it was first like was. There’s also lyrics suggesting that there’s some deep shit going on. It just adds to a song that really got the raw end of the deal. Besides the behind the scenes crap, the song was criticized because it wasn’t “showing her progression as an artist.” This was mainly by the critics but I don’t think they were really paying attention. Jojo helped write the song when she was 21 years old. I know when I was 21, I was writing about this kind of stuff.

Thoughts on “Demonstrate”

“Demonstrate” was suppose to be released the summer of 2012. It was the new first single off of her third album. I don’t think it’s a bad song but I do think that “Disaster” is definitely a strong single. Demonstrate is a slow and sexy single that is definitely something that we didn’t hear from Jojo. But it was a step in the right direction overall. I wish we could hear both versions of the third album before it became “Mad Love.” Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Verdict on ‘Disaster’

Personally, I think “Disaster” is a bop. I think it got too much hate on it for being too similar to “Too Little Too Late.” While I consider it to be the sister song, it’s definitely more mature than “Too Little Too Late.” It’s honestly it’s underrated. I think it got a bad rap just because they focused too much on it being similar to “Too Little Too Late” and not on the growth itself. The new version that she re-released is amazing but honestly, nothing compared to the original. It’s something about Jojo’s music that makes it so special. It’s a shame that some people aren’t able to have both versions to listen to. Greed is a dangerous drug.

‘7 Rings’ are few of Ariana Grande’s favorite things

Once upon a time there was girl named Ariana Maria Grande-Butera, Miss Butera if you’re nasty. She was a princess in the land of pop. Miss Butera sang and sang and love and love but then her heart kept breaking. She was sad and her loyal subjects send her so much love. Until one morning, Miss Butera woke up, look in the mirror and said: “Yup, I’m that bitch.” It was then when we saw a princess become bad bitch. Then she gave everyone “7 Rings.”

Who woulda thought it’d turn me to a savage?

“7 Rings” was released on January 18th after weeks of speculation. It’s an R&B pop song that takes part of “My Favorite Things” from the musical “The Sound of Music.” Because of this, I really hope someone makes an Dame Julie Andrews and Ariana Grande duet.

The song is an ear-worm. It will get stuck in your head. The lyrics are very self-aware and iconic lines. It’s pretty much just Miss Butera talking about how she can enjoy the finer things in life because she’s rich. It’s a song that you can listen to that will make you feel like a rich bitch. I listened to the song on my way to work and I just felt like a rich hoe.

The entire song is based on the events that inspired after her public breakout with her ex Pete Davidson. Miss Butera went out a bought all of her friends rings. She happened to buy seven rings. Hence the title of the song being “7 Rings.” Because of this, it’s safe to sat that the common theme of her next album “Thank, u next” is going to be growth and just celebrating friends and yourself.

The video was also released at the same time as the single and it’s just one big party. It’s like Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” video met Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry” video in the upper east side and had a baby. That baby was the video of “7 Rings.” The video is just Ariana and her friends having fun and celebrating life.

Verdict

“7 Rings” is an excellent song that is iconic enough to take your wig. I do wish it was a little bit longer but at the same time it’s just long enough to where it’s everything. The song hypes up Miss Butera as a pop icon as well as her upcoming album that we are patiently waiting for.
