Is "Blackout" Britney's Best Album?

Blackout has perhaps become Britney’s most lauded album among fans and retrospective pop music critics. This is rather significant considering its relatively low impact at the time. The music had taken a backseat to Britney’s media attention and tabloid coverage. The critics were more concerned with her awkward pole-dancing in the “Gimme More” music video or her lip-synced fumbling performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The album remains a black sheep among her discography, which sees Britne

Review #TamaReviews: Witness

I'm back, people. Not that you would care but Hey Hey Hey.mp3 This time, it's Witness time!     REVAMPED! Katy Perry released her fifth studio album titled “Witness” on June 9th 2017 to a rather underwhelming reception from both the critics and general public. It was supposed to be a reintroduction slash reinvention of Perry’s music and public persona after the overwhelming success of her previous album, “PRISM”. Initially, Perry had introduced a concept which she termed

Opinion Witness: What Could Have Been?

On June 9th 2017, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson a.k.a. Katy Perry released her fifth studio album (yes, we need to count her Christian music debut album because that's a part of her history) titled 'Witness'. The album was supposed to present Perry in a much different light compared to her previous records. She called it "purposeful pop" era. The album was notably different in its sonic landscape and overall theme, also worth to be mentioned was the production that largely sounded way colder than an

Opinion Bionic: What Could Have Been?

Christina Maria 'Xtina' Aguilera released an album titled "Bionic" on June 8th, 2010. The album was supposed to represent her femininity and motherhood, two aspects that don't necessarily linked to each other all the time. It's an album that also 'killed' her momentum in pop music as the critical and commercial receptions it got were abysmal. After the release of the album, she went through several events that would alter the course of her career and changed a portion of her personality as well.

#28 Mariah Carey - Glitter (2001)

#RoyaltyListens #28: Mariah Carey - Glitter (2001) #JusticeForGlitter! To celebrate that "Glitter" is finally available on streaming services, I thought it'd be a great opportunity to do a listening thread of "Glitter"! I have actually listened to this Mariah album maybe once or twice, so I can't really remember how any of the songs sound like, so this is (almost)  going to be a new experience for me. I am very, very, very excited to try out this album and I hope you will all join me

#27 Kylie Minogue - Fever (2001)

#RoyaltyListens #27: Kylie Minogue - Fever (2001) Okay so tomorrow after the "sweetener" listening thread, we decided to do another listening thread. This is a special request from my babe @Simón. - I'm kinda excited to do this listening thread, because I have never EVER listened to a full Kylie Minogue album, except for Golden when it came out. This was also the essence of me doing listening threads, to discover new albums, so I'm very excited to do this one. We'll be doing this afte

This time it's for Grammy winning artist Ariana Grande. We're listening to "sweetener" tomorrow night (Wednessday 20th) at 8:00 pm Amsterd

What I Think Miley Cyrus Should Consider to Do

Remember just a year ago when Miley Cyrus officially changed her name from Destiny Hope Cyrus to Miley Cyrus? Yeah, it was years ago. What I meant was, remember when she told us that she's going to release a three-part EPs which will be her next official studio album? Yeah, I remember that. Where is it now? None. Nowhere. Gone. Apparently, Miley was going to title the album as "She Is Miley Cyrus" which definitely gave me Barbra Streisand tease. However, I think it wouldn't be wise for
