Meet Mø: Electro-pop Talent On The Rise

by Chantal Felice


Danish singer-songwriter, Mø, brought a fresh new sound to electro-pop when she released her EP, “Bikini Daze”, back in October. In March, she released her debut album, No Mythologies to Follow, which debuted in the UK Albums Chart its first week out.

The dynamic and funky album, which featured a song with Diplo, gained positive critics. Inspired by the Spice Girls and Kim Gordan, Mø’s ignores the idea of perfect vocal performance and enjoys giving her fans an organic, relaxed and unique sound in every song.

Mø’s style is focused on simplicity and depth. From, “Don't Wanna Dance” to “Walk This Way”, we experience the state of being young and restless in a world with impossible ideals to live up to.

This summer she kicked off her tour in Europe and is now making her around the United States. In June, Mø made her first U.S. television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where she performed “Pilgrim” and other songs off her debut album.

Mø will be performing at The Regent in Los Angeles on October 16th. Check out her live performance of "Walk This Way", below.

Beyoncé Releases 'Flawless' Remix With Nicki Minaj

by Chantal Felice


Only a few minutes after Beyoncé and Jay-Z gave us a concert of a lifetime at the Rose Bowl, Beyoncé released her "Flawless" remix with Nicki Minaj. Soon enough the "Flawless" remix became Billboard's most trending song, taking 5 Seconds of Summer out of the number one spot. 

Beyoncé takes the opportunity to address the Jay-Z and Solange Knowles' elevator incident in the remix, while Nicki Minaj reminds us she's the queen of rap. 

Let's be honest, the two are having a great month, no better way to celebrate then to collaborate. Beyoncé is the leading nominee at this year's MTV Music Video Awards and Nicki Minaj's song with Jessie J and Ariana Grande reached No. 1 on iTunes this week.
