summer

With summer almost over, it’s time list the top songs of summer 2015.  Here’s The Pop Project:with Steven Kaufman’s Top 5ive Songs of Summer 2015

5. Carly Rae Jepsen “I Really Like You”

The song is catchier than most of the song this summer. It’s one of the best songs for your summer crush. Click here for my review of it.

 

4. Walk the Moon “Shut Up and Dance”

The song has played and featured everywhere this summer. It’s rather catchy and good, especially from a band that didn’t get any traction until this song was released. They were pretty much the Carly Rae Jepsen of bands and “Shut Up and Dance ” is their “Call Me Maybe.”

 

3. Selena Gomez “Good For You”

One of the most sultry songs of the summer for when you are looking to “go all the way” and by “go all the way” I mean start dating. Yep, it’s a songs about wanting to be good for the first date.Click here for my review of it.

 

2. Demi Lovato “Cool For the Summer”

The song for curious summer flirtations with the same gender, or any gender for that matter. But don’t tell your mother because this song is one of the coolest songs for the summer. Click here for my review of it.

 

1. 5 Seconds of Summer “She’s Kinda Hot”

The summer shout out to be the being okay with yourself and not caring what others think of you. It’s rather the most surprising hit of the summer. It’s catchy and it’s kinda hot though. Click her for our review of it.

 

Honorable Mention: Sage the Gemini feat. Nick Jonas “Good Thing”

Redux: Sexlena Gomez is what’s Good For You in this re-release

g4u redux

Welcome to the first ever Pop Project Redux! It’s where I take the original review and well, re-release it…or something like that. Today, Selena Gomez re-released her music video for “Good For You” now featuring the A$AP Rocky in it! Check out our redux review of it! Here is the original review.

Sexlena is back in her newest music video for her single “Good For You.” This music video is probably one of the sexual videos that Selena has done during her musical career.

So here’s the synopsis: She’s rolling around on the floor singing, then she’s rolling around of the couch singing before she starts to sing in the shower. Just when you think she’s getting comfortable, she moves to the outside world where she’s not wearing pants and sitting on a stool singing. Then she pretty much reenact sitting on top of someone and having a good time while singing before she tells us how good for you she is. So pretty much, she’s trying to seduce like the seductress she is.

The music video is ehh. I like how it’s just focusing on just Selena and totally removes her song partner, but I feel like it’s just her moping around her house being all anti-social and depressed, which is so 2008 btw. Don’t get me wrong, I like the more mature side of seleners, but give me more than just you rolling around on the floor and in the shower.

The video also features A$AP rocky just creeping in the background. The really sad part of this is the editing because it feels like they just rushed to put him in the video. The only plus to this is that his verse is now very explicit (yes, we have a explicit Selena Gomez song!) and that we get to see new shots of Selena being sexual. It also reminds me of Mac Miller’s part in the video for Ariana Grande’s “The Way.” I didn’t like that either.

Overall, it’s a like the song, and not the best music video. It could have been a tad bit better but it is what it is. They really should have left it at just one video for the song and not like 2 different version of it. I would go with the explicit version I had to pick my favorite out of the two.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the more mature side of seleners, but give me more than just you rolling around on the floor and in the shower. The best part is that it’s a slightly acoustic version of “Good For You” that is totally different from what the real single.

Overall, it’s a like the song, and not the best music video. It could have been a tad bit better but it is what it is.

Selena Gomez releases new single

Today, Selena Gomez released her newest single called “Good For You,” and boy, it’s not what I expected.

Before this single, Selena’s music has been more poppy. But “Good For You,” is little bit more urban and is more R&B than pop. It’s a rather nice change of pace and the style of the song is what makes it not what I expected. When I heard she was going to be making a new single, I was thinking someone like her last album “Stars Dance” and her last single “The Heart Wants What Its Wants.” But boy, was I pleasantly surprised by this song.

It’s a nice slow jammer, that features A$ASP Rocky spitting some rhymes. While the rap portion is fine and helps set the tone, it’s nothing really magically. You could take it out and still have the same tone and vibe and the song with be pretty amazing.Vocals on the song are amazing. It some parts of it, it doesn’t really sound like our seleners.

Overall the song is pretty much the best song that Selena has ever done. The song is going to be a summer hit. If this is the direction that Selena is going to go with for her album, I totally approve. I’m now really excited for this album.

Here’s the single for your listening pleasure:
