Cheryl Cole – Crazy Stupid Love (feat. Tinie Tempah)
Cheryl is back with her first single in a couple of years and she’s decided to team up with UK rapper Tinie Tempah. I’m not the biggest Cheryl fan when it comes down to her music but she has here and there released some decent songs but this is surely not one of them. The song is completely flat and has no power. The trumpets ruin the whole song because it sounds like one of those polyphonic ringtones they used to advertise on TV. Not good at all. And Tinie Tempah adds nothing to the song. Not a great ‘comeback’ single in the slightest. Normally these songs start to grow on you, but it does nothing for me.
Drake – 0 To 100 / The Catch Up
Drake dropped 0 To 100 / The Catch Up on his Soundcloud and it’s supposed be a teaser of whats to be expected from him in 2015. 0 To 100 was pretty standard on first play but The Catch Up sounds like signature Drake on the production, like an outtake from the ‘Take Care’ album. Neither of the songs on first play seem to pop out as much his previously released stuff but new Drake is always welcome since I still don’t think he has shown his true potential yet and has only scraped the barrel for what he’s capable of.
