DNA Review

Little Mix is a wildly popular modern girl band that can make even the One Direction boys be envious of their success. Not only did the young talented girls take home the coveted X Factor UK victory which was denied the boys, but also they had tons of positive commentary on their debut album – DNA. It is a solid and consistent collection of great singles. The whole CD is a lot of fun to listen to. Little Mix clearly reach for inspiration to the glorious days of hip R&B girl bands TLC and En Vogue. The singers’ productive work is complemented magnificently by their collaborators. You’re very unlikely to be left disappointed by DNA if you enjoyed the girls’ previous hits from X Factor UK.

The Hottest Music Videos that Were Released Last Week

FKA twigs has presented her first studio single from the imminent album “LP1” – a surging R&B song under the title “Two Weeks”.

The music video, directed by Nabil, presents actually one pan-out scene. The action takes place in an ancient temple. Twings is depicted as some kind of a goddess, with what looks like a royal crown on her head. The beginning of the clip shows a close-up of twings’ face, gradually revealing a group of surrounding dancers.

After the performer’s pair of acknowledged introductory EPs, the song “Two Weeks” becomes a truly persuasive statement. Being an extension of her early music material, this song is more beat-driven, particularly in the final part.
