Why so many questions about Russia?

I don't know. But I loved the questions about softsynths and VSTs.

Only two new songs by Max and the team which are not bad but they have to grow with time.
Pharrel's songs are catchy though.

Four.
At first listen: I hate it.

Ariana's Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.

"Did you know I demand to be carried anywhere? That's the kind of popstar I am" AHAHAHAHAHAHA

I had expectations when Troye released a song with Ariana and Oscar Holter, she could go from there. Ilya is starting to recycle beats.

On another note, is it me or every swede is slowing down their work per year?

Savan posted the other on instagram about being challeged creatively in this album for the second time in his life.
Sounds a bit like getting stuck.

None of the guys from the Cousins have evolved very much their sound.
And I think this is the same thing that happened to Max after 2001. Urban latin and trap is what's trending now.
 
For example: Kyle Shearer and Nate Campany co wrote Sin Pijama by Becky G. Had some sessions with respected latin writers. They know what's happening and where to go.

It would be great if Max would have a REAL challenge, doing something he's never done before.

For example, there's great producers at the moment but the future trends are clear to me: Rihanna's last record set the trend to caribbean sounding tracks. Her new record is dancehall. She did some stuff with London based producers Banx & Ranx, which mix caribbean sounds, Nigerian stuff and american production. They're from Canada. Check them, they signed with Syco a couple months ago.

Plus, there's some great stuff happening with Baile funk in Brazil, which is from the favelas in Rio. After Bum Bum Tam Tam, Anitta's Vai Malandra and the new heavily baile funk infused latest release by Juan Magan, I think that's other trend.

Also we have Tainy, from Puerto Rico, he co produced 10 songs on J Balvin's new album along Sky, J Balvin's former producer. He's the next thing.
He co produced I Like It by Cardi B, which is latin stuff mixed with trap. He mixes anything latin with modern production: funk carioca, trap, flamenco, reggae, dancehall, reggaeton, cumbia, champetas and vallenatos from Colombia, etc.

The thing is: the sounding evolves. But the most important thing is music and lyrics.
Max is not the best at writing lyrics, but he knows what he's good at and looks for people to help him.

I think about the need to think outside the box. Stop playing safe.
That's why I don't like Ariana's record. I heard this before many times. If you want to copy something, do it with a twist.

She did an interview with Zach Sang.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PviZLT7HPys

Some interesting things she brought up were that God is a woman was offered to other artists first and Wolf Cousins originally wanted the song to have a rapper. One of the artists was Camila, a snippet of her demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULwvGgm2XVM

She also talks about a song they offered her called Single which was recently registered with Demi so I guess she's the one who ended up recording it.

Ariana is so distant from latina world. I bet she will never release nothing tropical and so on.

That's why I don't like Ariana's record. I heard this before many times.

No way that a girl with the same hairdo for the last 6 years feels the need to try something new in a studio.
I guess this is happening when a vocalist got too much "creative control" over songwriting. She wants to show off, do aahs, runs and belts.

Her relevance was extended for one more album thanks to Manchester, which is sad because music stepped into a secondary role. There wouldn't be a chance for an artist to have to many top 10 doing something similar over and over.

Wow, I didn't know about God Is A Woman. I thought it was her idea.
And I'm not talking about Ariana doing new stuff, I'm talking about Max doing new things.

She ended up in tears with Ebro at Beats 1 talking about the Manchester, her mental health and therapy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9x84yPN71jo&t=197s

Plus, she was promoting the album on US TV as well. James Corden, Jimmy Fallon.

PS: Love the Zach Sang show.

So "breathin" seems to be the most popular album track, right?
And I liked it..
