Her debut album Drive in 1997 featured the tracks Sway and Good Morning Baby, used in the films American Pie and Cruel Intentions. Her third album Birds, went triple platinum in New Zealand. Our choice of song from her album is Everything is Beautiful and New.
Train`s sixth studio album has plenty of those pop rock choruses they`re famous for, with interesting musical elements for a twist—the ukulele makes an appearance, as does young country singer Ashley Monroe, featured in Bruises. Our favourite tracks include Drive By, Feels Good At First and We Were Made For This.
After being off the radar for awhile, the Grammy Award-winning singer has picked up the pace in the past couple of years – from her sixth album Still Standing in 2010 and a reality show of the same name to appearing on The Voice alongside CeeLo Green. Her seventh album proves that this songstress isn’t going anywhere.
There may be many imitators but there can only be one Madonna. At 53 years young, Queen Madge has still got it going on…even as she fields the brickbats with this latest effort. The dance-dominated 12-track album will call for the disco balls to be brought out at one point or another, so fans, get ready.
