MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of October 17, 2010
5. Nicole Scherzinger – Poison
Scherzy is staunchly determined to secure those solo dreams, enlisting Gaga’s OG hit-maker RedOne for her latest attempt at climbing the charts. It’s annoying and loud, but I’ll be damned if that chorus wasn’t firmly implanted into my brain after a few plays. Got that poison on my mind!
4. Robyn – Indestructible
Robyn’s last hurrah in the flawlessness that is/was the Body Talk series. While the spacey single version isn’t as memorable as “Dancing On My Own” or “Hang With Me,” “Indestructible” is yet another shining example of Robyn’s ability to deliver a gut-punch of emotion on the dance floor like no other.
3. Mason – Boadicea (feat. RÃ³isÃn Murphy)
A tale about the British folk hero who famously rebelled against the Roman Empire set to a throbbing disco beat? Um, duh.
2. Rihanna – What’s My Name
Pegged as the second single from Loud, “What’s My Name” seamlessly blends two ace selections from Rated R (“Rude Boy” and “Te Amo”) in a darker, island-tinged groove that help us all cool down from the throbbing beats of “Only Girl (In The World).” You think you can go downtown with a boy like me? Oh, na na na!
1. Ke$ha – We R Who We R
It’s big, it’s boisterous, and it sounds exactly like every other Ke$ha song you’ve ever heard in your life. In other words…AMAZING. Fair warning: I’ll be over the song by this time next week. But until then…I’M GOING HAR-HAR-HAR-HAR-HAR-HARD.
