Greyson Chance On His Rebranding, The Story Behind “Afterlife”, and the US Election

His third and latest single, “Back on the Wall”, has already garnered more than half a million views on YouTube. But more importantly, Greyson Chance is also back on his quest to slay the pop music industry after a hiatus of five long years. Greyson rose to prominence when talkshow host Ellen Degeneres discovered his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on YouTube. Since then, he has been blessed with a bundle of musical opportunities – including a record deal under Ellen herself. Many may still see him as a baby-faced talent who graced the world with his mellifluous, pre-pubescent voice…

Can Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Conquer Summer 2016?

“I’ve made my decision, to test my limits” After a painfully-extended promotional run, pop’ music’s four-octave fave Ariana Grande has finally released her third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman”. The album is preceded by the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You”, along with many other bops that we’ll get to later. The wait for #AG3 could have been a lot shorter. After scrapping 2015’s “Focus” over online criticism about it sounding too similar to her 2014 Iggy Azalea collab “Problem”, Ariana took a few months off to realign her chakras, lick some donuts, and post more cryptic tweets, Snapchats, and Instagrams as punishment for our audacity…

Zayn’s “Mind Of Mine” Might Suffer From One-Track Mindedness

It’s been little more than a year since Zayn Malik (now known mononymously as Zayn – like Madonna or Jesus) announced his exit from One Direction while they were still midway through their world tour – a move that broke the hearts of millions of fans. (They’ll recover.) Dropping his first solo song with as much notice as his departure from the band, “PILLOWTALK” sheds the light, teenager-friendly tone of One Direction and features a much edgier, sensual side of Zayn. As the lead single, it’s a good indication of the songs that follow on his debut LP “Mind Of Mine”…

#FreeKesha: With These Pop Stars’ Help, Kesha’s Next Album Is Going To Be Fantastic

In a sad turn of events, pop star Kesha‘s request for a preliminary injunction that will allow her to release music without the involvement of her alleged abuser, Dr. Luke, was turned down last week. The ruling by a New York Supreme Court judge was met with a wave of sighing and back-patting (and of course, vocal outcry) from fans and other singers, with Kesha thanking everyone for their support on Instagram and Facebook. As we ignore the call for a Sony boycott (it’s really hard guys, think about it), we couldn’t help but imagine how album number 3 might sound like. While her…

The DANamic.ORG Writers Pick the Best of 2015

We’re just a few days shy of the new year, and what better way to look back at the year past than through music! 2015 has been an interesting year for the pop scene, with big-name acts (Adele, One Direction, Justin Bieber) all holding off their projects till the end of the year. The heavy fourth quarter has seen fresh faces (Alessia Cara, Halsey, Fetty Wap) emerge with relative ease in the earlier part of the year, with these newbies being thrust to the top of the summer charts. Even with its lukewarm first half, 2015 has turned out to be a pretty good year. In our…

Ariana Grande Is All Ready To “Christmas & Chill”

So after just one day of teasers on Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram, pop’s Soprano princess Ariana Grande has dropped “Christmas & Chill“, her second holiday EP after 2013’s “Christmas Kisses“. The latest compilation is a six-track effort, featuring completely original material (if you think she’s about to cover “All I Want For Christmas Is You” anytime soon…). Here’s the thing: I love Ariana. Sure she might not be the best at diction, and she relies on a talented group of songwriters and producers, but come on… THAT VOICE. Her regular abuse summoning of her four octaves is reason enough for making her our karaoke…

Cleaning House with Clean Bandit

As part of their #BanditAsia tour, British four-piece band Clean Bandit took to the stage at The Coliseum at Hard Rock Hotel on 25 November 2015. Performing their unique mix of classic and electro-pop music, the Bandits brought upbeat stage presence and their compelling vocals to boot for their fans. The band belted out tunes from their debut studio album, “New Eyes” (which peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums chart). With familiar hits such as “Extraordinary“, “Real Love” and the massive pop earworm “Rather Be“, the audience (and our) hearts were captured as they bounced along. After a moderate delay, the…
