Shuffling On My iPod: Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks is the personification of the term unsigned hype. Originally from Harlem, NY but not getting any love in her home country, Azealia skipped across the pond to the UK where she was quickly embraced by the hip-hop loving youth culture and discerning music critics there. She came in 3rd place on the Sound of 2012 list (an annual list of promising new musical talent that counts acts like 50 Cent, Adele, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Jessie J as past winners) and was #1 on NME’s annual Cool List. Azealia is the flip side to Nicki Minaj‚Ķfocusing on her lyrics and in your face quirkiness as opposed to the glam and sexuality that Minaj traffics in.
Here’s hoping Miss Bank$ gets signed and blows-up on both sides of the Atlantic in the very near future.

Azealia Banks feat. Lazy Jay – 212

Bosom Buddies 2: Electric Boogaloo

Bosom Buddies
Buffy & Hildegard Are Giving The Side-Eye To This Janky Copycat Show

BOSOM BUDDIES was a show that starred Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari as two best friends who were working low paying jobs who dressed up as women so that they can move into an affordable women only apartment building. WORK IT is a show that stars Ben Koldyke and Amaury Nolasco as two best friends who are out of work so they dress up as women to get jobs at a pharmaceutical company. The similarities abound between these two shows but the one glaring difference (aside from WORK IT not benefiting from the presence of the delectable Donna Dixon) is that BOSOM BUDDIES was capable of being funny now and again while WORK IT is laugh free.

Cover Me Monday

2011 has been the year of the Adele cover with Rolling in the Deep being covered by anyone with a camera phone, a YouTube account and no shame. So I figured it would be fitting to have the inaugural edition of Cover Me Monday feature Adele covering someone else. There were a few songs to choose from like her cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” or Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” but I chose to go with her cover of UK pop star Cheryl Cole‘s “Promise This”.
