Fifth Harmony, Who?

There was no question at all that Camila wasn’t going to come out strong upon leaving Fifth Harmony. If there was a question, it was going to be how quickly she could rise to the potential she always had as a solo artist. And now we know. I’ve been obsessed with “Love Incredible” since it came out and even though it was more Cashmere Cat’s song than hers, I still wondered why it wasn’t more of a chart topper. I didn’t care for the song she did with Pitbull or “Bad Things” or “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” but “Crying in the Club” is such a bop. It makes the Selena Gomez track that was released one day before look like child’s play. What’s great about the music video for “Crying in the Club” is that it also previews “I Have Questions” – a new song that she’ll be performing for the first time at the Billboard Music Awards. I feel for Fifth Harmony, I really do, but this was inevitable. Camila was just born to be a star in her own right and now she gets to do that.

Song of the Day

Harry Styles – Ever Since New York

Okay, so we’re a little bit embarrassed to be posting this. I’ve never been a One Direction fan, really, but I watched Harry perform this song on SNL a couple of weeks ago and I was eagerly anticipating the release date of this album so that I could add this ONE song to my playlist. And… we also had it on repeat as I tried to fall asleep last night. Has anyone else listened to the rest of the album? I’m doing it as we speak and it’s not bad. It’s easy listening for sure, but I don’t feel the need to over listen to it like I did with Khalid. ;)

What We’re Listening to This Weekend

Since I now work in the city, I try to avoid San Francisco as much as I can on the weekends. That means the city is only reserved for special events… like I mean you gotta be celebrating a birthday and if it’s not at that baseline, cya! Myself in my late 20’s is actually fascinating to me because my weekends typically consist of brunch dates, snack dates, and errands. I think teenager me would wonder how I seem to have errands every single weekend. I’m still trying to figure that out too. After a busy day of shopping though, I’m now at home and resting up before I fly to LA later on this week. I was in the mood for The Weeknd, but not any of his new stuff. House of Balloons has always been one of my favorites and though it’s a little dark at times, it’s nice background music for me while I’m writing on Yow Yow! I didn’t hate his latest album, but I didn’t want to listen to anything remotely close to “Can’t Feel My Face” so here we are.

The New Miley

Uh, was anyone else completely surprised by the release of this single and music video that Miley released today? It’s almost as if whole chunk of her life had not even happened at all and that this is still the Hannah Montana that we all grew up with. Some critics are calling the song a snoozefest and I can’t say I disagree with that. It’s nothing like “Wrecking Ball” or any other tracks she released during that time. So it’s a little more laid back, but it is still kind of catchy. What does everyone think of Miley’s back to old kind of look? I think I’m pretty pleased with it because it means she’s back with Liam! <3

I’m totally not used to seeing Miley like this though and it almost seems like a shock from how different she used to be. Are we convinced that this is the real her and she’s going to stay this way?
