The Top 50 Singles of 2015

Well! Here we go again. I worked my way through the Top 20 Albums of 2015 last week. And now, it's time to twirl right through the singles. This list is always way more fun to put together than the albums because I get to squeeze in more artists, although the ranking starts to feel especially…


The Top 20 Albums of 2015

Well, here we go. 2015 has been quite a year — personally, professionally and pop culturally speaking. I lived! I loved! I laughed! Actually, I mostly cried, because like a certain Canadian songbird, I have all of these E•MO•TIONs. (FORESHADOWING.) Anyway! We're knee-deep in list season now, and…


"What Do You Mean?": Justin Bieber Continues To Ask All The Right Questions

Scooter Braun deserves all of the managerial accolades this year, because two of his acts are quietly running the show. (And just wait until CL's solo stuff arrives...) By now, it's been established that Carly Rae Jepsen's new record, E•MO•TION, is pure pop gold, and "Run Away With Me" is one of…

Carly Rae Jepsen Serves Pure Pop Perfection on 'Kiss' (Album Review)

From the second after fellow Canadian crooner Justin Bieber tweeted her name, Carly Rae Jepsen's life changed. It's not that Jepsen was necessarily new to the industry, though: Back in Canada, the bubbly chanteuse was already known after placing 3rd overall on the 5th season of Canadian Idol,…


The Wanted and Justin Bieber Appear on The Voice, Legendtina Outshines All

Well, this was a weird/amazing week of The Voice. Almighty Queen Legendtina performed a rocky rendition of "Fighter" which apparently no one seemed to notice, Justin Bieber popped up out of nowhere to debut a clip of his new video for "Boyfriend" (SHAKING AND CRYING!!1!!!1), and to my greatest of…


Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" May Be The Catchiest Song in the History of Ever

Here's the thing (we started out friends...): Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" may very well be the catchiest song in the world, and it's about to be literally everywhere. If you weren't already familiar with Ms. Jepsen, the Canadian-born 26-year-old chanteuse first rose to fame after placing…

SoundGirl Gives Away Single, Remains Both Confusing and Amazing

I'm still not quite sure what to make of SoundGirl. On the one hand, the first two tracks that surfaced on their SoundCloud, "The Game" and "Walking On Air," were some of the most promising material I heard from a new artist last year. Initially, SoundGirl evoked the things I loved most about the…
