The number 1 song in the nation:
Adele holds on to her #1 spot atop the chart with her tearjerker of a ballad, "Hello." This week legendary documentary narrator and scientist Sir David Attenborough narrated the opening of Adele's 'Hello' video in a nature documentary style and it's a must-watch.
At 18 this week Tanika Charles has a new entry with "Soul Run" the first single from her album due out in 2016. The song has soul in its DNA from the open drum beats to the funky guitar. Check it out.
Cool New Video:
Check out this video for "Forever Mine" by Andra Day. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine Andra Day said of her music 'I'm not going to put myself in a box,' but that is exactly what director Spike Lee has done for her new music video. She is literally a woman in a glass box, "Da box" at the Standard hotel in West Hollywood. Andra is stared at by the guests, leered at peered at trapped in the glass box that after a while becomes her solitary sanctuary. Its an interesting concept, quite provocative and worth a look.
One To Watch:
Alessia Cara the 19 year old pop sensation from Brampton Ontario is one to watch on CBC Music's 25 best Canadian musicians 25 and under. Alessia has a re-entry on the chart this week at 16 with "Outlaws".
Men In Toques:
Check out Donovan Woods and Tom Power playing. "Jam Or Not A Jam". Its hard to explain. Just watch it!
