Motivation



The song Gone by Nelly featuring Kelly Rowland was one of the year's biggest music single flops on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, it didn't chart there at all. Gone is due to be released on the 8th May.
Kelly's newest single is called Motivation and has an addictive simple baseline. It features Lil Wayne who also guests on the new Jennifer Lopez single I'm Into you. This week Motivation charted at number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100 so it looks like that should be a success for  Kelly.

Blake Shelton


Blake Shelton has had to date seven number one Country music chart hits in the US. His most recent song Honey Bee has done better in the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it got to number 13, the song has so far got to number 21 in the country charts. I prefer singers like Eric Church but this is pretty fine too.

Here's Blake Shelton and a live performance of Honey Bee at this year's American Country Music Awards

CockNBullKid


CockNBullKid is another one of those UK music artists who need just one song to make a breakthrough in the charts. If her song Hold On To your Misery was re-released in June or July it would be a perfect song for summer radio. Her newest single is Asthma Attack, the name alone almost made me not listen to it but if Olivia Newton John can hit a huge hit with a song titled Heart Attack than sometimes the name doesn't matter. Asthma Attack is actually an bittersweet ode to London so CockNBullKid does her take on what Lily Allen did v well a few years ago. I saw on fellow blogger Enda's Facebook page that he's a fan of her too so for me that confirms his good taste in modern pop.
