Charlie Puth – L.U.V.

Song: L.U.V. by Charlie Pluth

Genre: Pop

Mood: L.U.V.

About the Music: Charlie Puth is a young YouTuber who was introduced to me by my brother. Mostly he is known for his covers of songs and smooth voice. In fact, in 2011 he was featured on The Ellen Show for his collaborative cover of Adele’s song Someone Like You. It even landed him a spot on Ellens record label, Eleveneleven

Although he is no longer signed to the label, it hasn’t stopped him from making more videos and producing his own music. I consider him a diamond in the rough – it’s hard to believe at one point he was too shy to sing, which is why he initially took to YouTube. He wanted to do something he loved since he was a little kid without fear of being judged. Since then his confidence and popularity has grown, not to mention the love and support from his fans all over the world.

This is one of my favorites by him and his first official music video, released August 1, 2014.

To me the song is about still loving someone, even after it didn’t work out the first time. You can’t explain it, but you have a sense of hope it could be something amazing if you both just let go of your fears and give each other a real chance, a better chance. I feel like this represents the moment when you’re tired of holding back, you care about the person and want the opportunity to see where it can take you.





Troye Sivan – Happy Little Pill

Song: Happy Little Pill by Troye Sivan

Genre: Pop

Mood: Mellow

About the Music:  This song is melodic and calming; his smooth voice and electronic undertones got me hooked. All in all, it has a good, fluid beat. I was recommended this song by my brother; I had not heard of him before so I looked him up.

Originally from South Africa, where he was born, he launched his career in Australia. He is a well-known YouTuber, who some claim to be the next Justin Bieber. Watching a few of his videos, I can say his personality is lovable, charming, and, more than anything, grateful for all the love and support from his fans.

In addition to being passionate about music and singing, he is also an actor. Does he look familiar?! If you are an X-Men, fan you might recognize him as the young James Logan Howlett in the blockbuster movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. – I actually saw this movie in theaters, so I was surprised to learn that.

Needless to say, I was very impressed. He has a lot going for him and I’m looking forward to seeing where he goes from here. His EP, which includes this song, came out on August 15th, 2014.
