The Jonas Brothers returned to music with comeback single ‘Sucker’

The day was October 29th, 2013. It was two days away from Halloween, but for many, it was scarier than what they would experience at the end of the month. For millions of girls across the world, they cried into their pillows as the Jonas Brothers broke up in order to “get their shit together.” Apparently, it took them six years and countless family dinners to “get their shit together.” After weeks of speculations, the Jonas Brother’s official Twitter announced that there would be a new single come into our lives at Midnight. They didn’t disappoint. AT ALL

You’re the medicine in the pain, the tattoo inside my brain

“Sucker” is an upbeat pop song. It continues the sound that the Jonas Brothers presented in their song “Poms Poms” and “The First Time.” The sound for this song is matured and more well rounded. The best way to describe it is that they took the DNCE sound, mashed it with Nick’s sexy lyrics from his solo career, and just added Kevin Jonas. When you listened to “Poms Poms” and “The First Time,” it just didn’t sound like them nor did it sound like something they wanted to put out.

The song’s lyrics are about their relationship and just being totally in love with the person you are with. This was obviously taken from real-life experience, with a call out to Nick’s recent marriage to Priyanka Chopra in the song lyrics. It’s mainly Nick and Joe on vocals but that’s to be expected as that was the case for most of their career. Kevin was only majorly on vocals during the first album “It’s About Time.” Honestly, I would have had like to have had all three brothers on vocals but that’s just me nitpicking.

The video itself is extremely adorable and rather iconic. It’s pretty much them and their significant others just having fun in a mansion. It has an Alice in Wonderland theme to it and frankly, I really liked it. I liked how they had their actual wives/girlfriend to play themselves and it just seemed like a fun time. It came across very well on the screen.

The only problem with “Sucker” is that it sounds too similar to the music that’s on the radio. Like I mentioned before, it sounds like a DNCE song. While there really isn’t too much they could do to not make it sound similar to what’s on the radio, it would have helped to try to make not sounds like that.

Let’s rate Nick Jonas

because why not

It’s Nick Jonas….he’s muscles are showing. 10 out of 10. Here’s a gif of him in a tub. You’re welcome.

Again, you’re welcome

Verdict

“Sucker” is an excellent start to their comeback. The only thing really working against them is the fact that the song sounds like everything else on the radio. I don’t think it will get lost in the shuffle because of the hype but the similarity to DNCE, and other music similar, isn’t going to do it any favors. I still love the song though.

Rating: 4 out of 5

Mötley Crüe teams up with Machine Gun Kelly for ‘The Dirt’

On Friday, February 22nd, glam metal/rock band Mötley Crüe released their first new song since 2015. The song is off of the soundtrack for their Netflix biographical film “The Dirt.” You might be thinking to yourself, “Why are we talking about a rock song on a site that has pop in its title?” My answer to that is I do what I want and I cover pop culture. Nothing screams pop culture like a Netflix biographical film. I’m glad it’s not on Lifetime.

Let’s take it to the top and watch it burn

“The Dirt (Est. 1981)” is a fast pace, in your face, catchy hard rock/glam metal song. It starts off slow and eery before really kicking into high gear. I really like the opening riff. It was just something cool. It’s honestly just something that you just can’t help but rock out to. Vince Neil’s vocals are still just as good. Everything about this song was just well-produced. The best part for me was Mick Mars’ solo. Dude is almost 70 and he can play guitar better than guitarist half his age. As their first song back, “The Dirt (Est. 1981)” didn’t disappoint. The video is just scenes from the movie and them performing the song in the studio. It’s a promo video.

When you look that it’s a Mötley Crüe song with Rapper Machine Gun Kelly on it, you are expecting it to royally suck. It’s two things that really shouldn’t go together. But it actually goes together really well. Like I couldn’t even tell that it was MGK at first. He blended in so well that it was a perfect fit. No matter what music genre, when you have rappers as feature artists on songs, its either hit or miss. A lot of times, it’s a miss. It’s just awkward and out of place. Luckily, it isn’t this time.

The song is off of the soundtrack for the movie. The soundtrack is pretty much the greatest hit album with three original songs. There’s also a cover of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” I’m honestly interested to see what the cover sounds like. As for the movie itself, I’m skeptical of it. I think it will be good but I don’t think it going to great. Hopefully, I’m wrong.

Verdict

“The Dirt (Est. 1981)” is a very good example of how Mötley Crüe hasn’t really missed a step after their four-year hiatus. It’s a catchy, addictive and just rocks out hard. Machine Gun Kelly also just kills with his part. Does it rank up there as their best single? Nope but that’s okay. It doesn’t need to be. It’s can still be a good song without having to be the best single. The soundtrack and the movie “The Dirt” will be released on Friday, March 22.

So it’s time that I snatch Buzzfeed’s edges and list the 11 lyrics that prove Ariana has that BDE. Get ready because this list will be having walk “Side to Side” and you will have a baby in you.

A special shout out to Bailey Aleece Miller. She took time out of her schedule of tasting Jelly and being Ariana Grande to help curate this list and come out of retirement. You should follow her on Twitter because it’s a stan’s dream account. But here’s the list:

When that sex is just too good

When you want to break barriers and be a bad bitch

When you want more than just that good D

When you truly don’t give two fucks

When you got that good shit, that made you not quit for hours

When you have a kink, and that kink is bad boys

When your parent’s question your life choices

When you see a hot outfit that makes your ass look good

When your bae is being an ass

When you flaunt what your momma gave you and don’t care

When you see a man you want

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.
