Miley Cyrus Midnight Sky

'Midnight Sky': Miley Cyrus Was Born to Run

"I don't need to be loved by you." She was coming...until she wasn't. Miley Cyrus is just rolling with the punches like the rest of us: that includes her Malibu home burning down in the California fires, a highly publicized divorce with Liam Hemsworth, an equally highly publicized, fleeting…


Billie Eilish My Future

'my future': Billie Eilish Opts for Optimism in Dark Times

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dm9Zf1WYQ_A Billie Eilish is doing pretty okay, all things considered. This whole pandemic thing, and the general sense that the fabric of society is just barely hanging on by a thread through, like, Zoom calls? Not great! But instead of (justifiably) succumbing to…


Melanie C's Got a New Album & Going 'In & Out of Love'

You know what? Melanie Jayne Chisholm hasn't missed a beat with this new era. If you've not been following along for the ride thus far (the Spice Bus must have missed you at your stop), the recording artist occasionally also known to us as Sporty Spice high-kicked her latest solo campaign into gear…


Kylie Minogue Say Something

'Say Something': Kylie Dreams of a Less Socially Distant Future

"Love is love, it never ends...can we all be as one again?" Kylie Minogue didn't have to return to us this soon after the release of her 2018 record Golden and accompanying tour through 2019 - and she certainly didn't have to come back in the middle of a pandemic. After all, even if our disco…


Lennon Stella Pretty Boy Three. Two. One.

Lennon Stella's 'Pretty Boy': An Ode to the Ostensible Himbo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWvxKqjKpKI Truthfully, not too many records released in 2020 have stuck with me for much longer than a few weeks after their release date, but Lennon Stella's debut studio album, Three. Two. One., certainly has. The album was released towards the end of April -…


Allie X Super Duper Party People

Allie X's 'Super Duper Party People' Gets the Remix Treatment

No one is having much fun at all right now, and anything even remotely party-related feels taboo, but Allie X is doing her best to provide us with fond memories of less socially distanced activities. (Remember those?) After releasing another rock-solid set of gloomy, gorgeous pop cuts earlier in…


Lights Dead End

Lights Hits a 'Dead End' on the Dance Floor

Like Avril Lavigne, Carly Rae Jepsen and Canada's Drag Race contestant Jimbo, Lights Poxleitner-Bokan - or Lights, for short - is Canadian excellence. Haven't pensively stared out the window of a moving train on a chilly winter day while listening to "Siberia" on loop? Afraid to say it, but you…


RAYE Natalie Don't

'Natalie Don't': RAYE Provides a Perfect 'Jolene' for 2020

https://youtu.be/nzxEIgLlrlI Here's the thing about RAYE: she just does not miss. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: from her myriad dance floor collaborations over the past few years, like "Secrets" with DJ Regard, "You Don't Know Me" and "Tequila" with Jax Jones and "Stay (Don't Go…


Sunmi Pporappippam

'Pporappippam': Sunmi Delivers a Swoony Song for the Summer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is7glC9Jp7Q Sunmi isn't just one of the top soloists in South Korea - she's essentially forged her own genre. Since the split of her long-running, history-making girl group, Wonder Girls, following the release of their incredible final album Reboot in 2015, Sunmi's…


Dannii Minogue All I Wanna Do

Dannii Minogue Reimagines 'All I Wanna Do' for 2020

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OWPwvfLvGE&feature=emb_title "All I wanna do, all I wanna do, all I wanna do is touch you..." Danielle Jane Minogue, Queen of Clubs™, is taking a look back - back to a time when everybody changed underwater, when we disremembered, and when we got everything we…

'Experience': Victoria Monét & Khalid Provide a Stunning Disco Escape

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yeohq-Fapks Happy Juneteenth everyone, and welcome back to MuuMuse. I've admittedly been hesitant to write at all about music as of late. Between a pandemic and a long overdue global reckoning in the name of racial justice, it feels pretty insignificant to be…


Leah Kate Bad Idea

Leah Kate Makes a 'Bad Idea' Sound Pretty Damn Good

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHmvuBDrqZ4&feature=youtu.be Another day, another stay. While the world largely continues to keep things socially distanced (which some of you are better at than others, evidently), there is no shortage of new music that has us yearning for some communal singing,…
