CHART SPOTLIGHT. ‘Future Trance 57’ is the latest trance installment with hot new tracks. Containing new versions of Brooklyn Bounce’s ‘The Music’ Got Me,’ covers of ‘Bring Me to Life,’ ‘Hold It Against Me’ and ‘Take Me to the Limit’ it also features the original hits from Avicii, Kate Ryan, LMFAO and Swedish House Mafia. This compilation definitely blends with a house party or an aerobic class!
Still a worldwide smash, “Party Rock Anthem” (featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock). It also interpolates lyrics from Rick Ross’ “Hustlin’.” It has been number one in several countries. Also sampling a bit from Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love,” the single has amassed more than 2.5m digital downloads in the United States alone.
CHART REFLECTION. Pop cultural phenomenon Jersey Shore is hitting TV screens after summer. Originally premiering on MTV in December 2009, the fourth installment will take place in Italy. The new season will premiere on August 4 and according to Zap2it, “Fists are pumped, fights are staged, drinks are downed, tongues are enjoined in extreme closeup.” Not surprisingly, the cast was banned from filming at certain tourist hot spots. The Florentian mayor Matteo Renzi has forbidden Snooki & co from appearing near the tourist attractions such as the Uffizi and Boboli Gardens.
As WelcheMusic is a true music blog, we’re anxious to see what music will appear on the show. Last year, a Jersey Shore soundtrack was issued. Enrique Iglesias shot a alternative video of his “I Like It” and the set includes tracks from Taio Cruz, LMFAO and David Guetta.
CHART SPOTLIGHT. By now, we’re all familiar with the LA based electro hop recording duo LMFAO. Their “Party Rock Anthem” finally ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to topping the tallies in countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Austria, Brazil and Denmark.
The group has already managed to produce a follow up – “Champagne Showers” which features the English singer-songwriter Natalia Kills on guest vocals. Kills issued her debut set Perfectionist on the German market this April – it contains her debut single “Mirrors.”
Rumours say that the third single off LMFAO’s album Sorry for Party Rocking will be “Best Night.” Featuring will.i.am, GoonRock and Eva Simons as guests, the track is bound to hit the charts. Nevertheless, expect “Party Rock Anthem” to last although the summer!
