'Pop 2': Charli XCX Auto-Tunes Out the Demons & Proves Herself to Be the Ultimate Curator of Cool (Review)

"Go fuck your prototype / I’m an upgrade of your stereotype." Look: Sophia isn't the only Femmebot poised to take over the world. After leading us into 2017 with her Number 1 Angel mixtape back in March, a collection of thumping, PC Music-produced future-bops that still holds up as one of the…


HyunA Lip Hip Thanx Single

'Lip & Hip': HyunA Delivers the Horny, Porny & Polarizing Pop Anthem We Deserve

In a world full of cutesy schoolgirl concepts and aegyo-filled choreography, Queen HyunA is a breath of sleazy, sex-starved air. Barring a handful of exceptions, K-Pop exists within a fairly conservative bubble, rarely pushing the envelope in terms of sexuality. HyunA, however, flicks a middle…


EXID Full Moon

'Full Moon': EXID Shines Their Light and Leaves 'Em Shaking (Review)

Earth might be canceled, oh...any day now, but EXID's already found their bliss out of this world. To be fair, it hasn't entirely been rainbows, sunshine and selcas for the five piece South Korean girl group: poor, sweet lead vocalist Solji was banned from promoting with the other four girls after…


STEPS Dancing With a Broken Heart

'Dancing With a Broken Heart': STEPS Tap Delta Goodrem for Their Second Solid Pop Comeback of the Year

STEPS had no business storming back into pop culture in the year 2017 with their almighty, pop-saving comeback single "Scared of the Dark" back in March, nor their shimmering April LP Tears on the Dancefloor and the album's two follow-up tracks, the Benny & Björn-penned "Story of a Heart" and "Neon…


Anitta Will I See You

'Will I See You': Anitta's Debut English Single Showcases the Brazilian Bombshell's Softer Side

Brazilian superstar Anitta, who is currently on track to take over the world with her voice, her dance moves and her bunda (?), just made a massive next step in her cross-cultural conquest: her very first English language single. And surprisingly enough, it's quite...calm. "Will I See You" is…


Aly & AJ Take Me

"Take Me": Aly & AJ Are Back, and They're Tired of Waiting For You

"I don't wait long, 'cause I got better things to do." Look, Miley Cyrus isn't the only one moving past her Disney beginnings. Aly & AJ, known individually as Alyson Michalka and Amanda Joy Michalka and most highly regarded by The Gay Community™ for "Potential Breakup Song" (later covered by J-Pop…


Miley Cyrus Younger Now

"Younger Now": Miley Cyrus Just Ain't the Same These Days (Review)

"No one stays the same..." Evolving one's identity gradually over a period of time is a tricky thing to master in the pop world. (Not everyone can be Madonna, after all.) By now, in case "Mailbu" wasn't a strong enough visual and sonic indication, you should know: Miley Cyrus is scaling things…


Justin Bieber Friends

Justin Bieber & BloodPop's "Friends": For When It Is, in Fact, Too Late to Say Sorry (Review)

From "Where Are Ü Now" to "What Do You Mean?" to "Sorry" to "Cold Water" to "Let Me Love You" to "2U,"Justin Bieber is one of the most consistent purveyors of dance-pop in the past few, strange years in pop music. (Someone's got to do it while Robyn's off fucking around somewhere not releasing…


Moon Hyuna EU Erine Doong Doong

Sail Away From the World: Moon Hyuna and EU Erine's "Doong Doong"

This country is filled with anger, ignorance and hatred. And, at least for myself, it's becoming all too easy to fall down into a social media rage spiral for hours every day as of late — with seemingly no end in sight. Consider, if only for a fleeting moment, taking some time out from the world…


Red Velvet 'The Red Summer' Album

'The Red Summer': Red Velvet Add Flavorful Color to the Sunny Season (Review)

Red Velvet are back...not that they've been gone very long, that is. In fact, it was only five months ago that the S.M. Entertainment girls, who first debuted in 2014, were promoting their fourth consecutive No. 1 mini-album, Rookie. (Admittedly, "Rookie" is one of their weakest lead singles to…


Allie X Jungle George

Allie X Turns Self-Destructive Tendencies Into Pop PerfXtion on 'CollXtion II' (Album Review)

Channeling one's insecurities into art is an X-Static Process. (Just ask Madonna.) Back in early February of 2014, a singer named Allie X mysteriously popped up on the blog scene in GIF form with her debut single "Catch," twirling 'round with a giant syringe in hand. Armed with a Fame Monster-era…
