Shine bright like a diamond. Shine bright like a diamond. Shining bright like a diamond. We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky." (Google).
Katy Perry once said, "There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I've realized that it's time for me to show my audience that we don't have to be perfect to achieve our dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect." (Brainy Quote). She is absolutely right! We do not have to be perfect but she sure knows how to release a perfect song! This song rocks!
HUMBLE. is a great song performed by a rapper named Kendrick Lamar. He talked about his idols when he said, "Sonnymoon and Quadrants are a couple of bands that really inspire me in terms of the melodics of things and certain tones and just what feels good.

(Brainy Quote).
Miley Cyrus is the singer behind this ballad. She once said, "I am fully committed to Hannah Montana. It's what gave me this amazing opportunity to reach out to so many people.

(Brainy Quote). Imagine if she never got her start on Hannah Montana!
French Montana once said, "I was never officially signed with Akon, but it was a shopping deal. That was around the time he was going through some problems with his label at Interscope.

Since U Been Gone?
Kelly Clarkson once said, "My friends and family are my support system. They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear and they are there for me in the good and bad times.

It is great that she has such a support system with all of her talents.
Rihanna was the singer behind this amazing song! The lyrics say, "When the sun shines, we shine together. Told ya I'll be here forever. Said I'll always be ya friend.

Nicki Minaj once said, "When I was younger I didn't have much financially like we couldn't afford a lot of stuff and I remember seeing little girls' rooms on TV and they'd all be pink.

She has really grown in the industry!
XO Tour Life?
Lil Uzi Vert said, "I'm a real big Marilyn Manson fan. I get a lot of my styles from him. Not even musically - living-wise, too. Marilyn Manson definitely shows me we shouldn't care what nobody says.

It is great to see where he gets his inspiration from. Turn up or turn down!
Set Fire to the Rain?
Adele once said, "The way I write my songs is that I have to believe what I'm writing about, and that's why they always end up being so personal - because the kind of artists I like, they convince me, they totally win me over straight away in that thing. Like, 'Oh my God, this song is totally about me.'" (Brainy Quote). It is awesome that she was behind such a wonderful song like this one! Turn up or turn down!
Hold On, We're Going Home?
This song is called Hold On, We're Going Home! Drake is the performer and he once said, "There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it's all just noise that lets me know that I'm relevant."

Make Me Cry?
Noah Cyrus once said, "I like writing with people. I think the times that I've closed myself off to not writing with people, I haven't gotten the best product because I haven't had anyone to go back and forth with and really discuss what's going on in my life, what's going on in their life. It's so important to have that connection." (Brainy Quote). She is super talented and she is the younger sister of Miley Cyrus! How cool is that?
Fetty Wap once said, "I just want everybody to know my music and get to know my squad, Remy Boyz; just to show people New Jersey. New Jersey got talent, too. I mean, everybody sleeps on us, and they put us as the underdog. I never really thought I was going to be a singer, honestly. I never listened to singers; I always listened to rap music." (Brainy Quote). It is cool that branched out to singing on top of rapping.
Where Are Ü Now?
Justin Bieber once said, "I grew up below the poverty line; I didn't have as much as other people did. I think it made me stronger as a person, it built my character.

We Found Love?
The lyrics of this Rihanna hit say, "It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny. But I've gotta let it go. We found love in a hopeless place. We found love in a hopeless place. We found love in a hopeless place. We found love in a hopeless place. Shine a light through an open door. Love and life I will divide. Turn away 'cause I need ya more. Feel the heartbeat in my mind. It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny" (Google).
Same Old Love?
Same Old Love is a song by Selena Gomez. She once said, "Most of the time, people say negative things for a reaction, and I can't even bear to give them the satisfaction.

She is a great singer too and this is one of her more popular songs!
Cardi B is one of the rappers on this track! She said. "When people hear my lyrics, they hear the shots that I throw at people. I throw shots because I always been the underdog. I got rejected so many times, and I say it in my lyrics constantly. It's not that people want to be like me, but some want to say the things I say and can't because they're afraid. I say it for them." (Brainy Quote). We sure do love her lyrics.
We Can’t Stop?
Miley Cyrus is the talented one who sings this song and she once said, "I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me.

Dad and I are writing songs together. I've probably written 100 songs." (Brainy Quote).
Heart Attack is an awesome song by Trey Songz! He once said, "Sometimes I go crazy - get into a mind space where it doesn't matter what I spend. Like, on impulse, I might buy a $600 Dolce t-shirt, ya know, just because it's silk and maybe there's some suede leather detailing. Or two of my favorite hoodies, I don't even know the brand, but they're' very thin soft cotton. $300 apiece!" (Brainy Quote). He deserves the nicer things in life!
Alicia Keys once said, "I'm a very positive person, but this whole concept of having to always be nice, always smiling, always happy, that's not real. It was like I was wearing a mask. I was becoming this perfectly chiseled sculpture, and that was bad. That took a long time to understand." (Brainy Quote). She does not have to wear a mask to show off her talent! She is great and so are all of her songs-- including this one!
Take Care is a great love song by Rihanna and Drake! Drake once said, "I push myself in a lot of aspects when I write a song. I write a piece and where most people would stop and say, 'Oh, that's the hook right there,' I'll move that to the first four bars of the verse and do a new hook." (Brainy Quote). His songs are usually pretty amazing and so are hers. That is why it is no surprise that this song rocks!
Kelly Clarkson once said, "Ever since I was younger I wanted to be on stage, singing my songs in a glittering costume. And that happened and is still happening. I have to remember that this is what I wished for and be grateful because there are 500 other girls right behind me that are ready to snatch it up." (Brainy Quote). We are so glad she started singing and that she has been able to bring us songs like this one!
1-800-273-8255 is a great song by a rapper named Logic. He once said, "When I grab the microphone, I am the greatest rapper, musician, and artist that ever lived, ever, in the entire universe - but when I put that microphone down, I am a man with so much to learn, personally and professionally. I'm not the rapper that's too cool to tweet and talk to fans." (Brainy Quote). Turn up or down a great song like this one by Logic!
Dear Future Husband?
Dear Future Husband is a super cute and catchy pop song! Meghan Trainor is the singer and she once said, "I was always a little insecure. I had brothers that played football, so I was just a straight-up tomboy for a minute. I didn't know makeup and hair stuff. My friends had to tell me what a straightener was. I didn't know fashion or any of that until the label gave me a stylist." (Brainy Quote). Will this song get turned up?
Bounce Back is a rap song by a rapper named Big Sean. He once said, "Definitely just growing up in general influenced me; Detroit happened to be where I was. I feel like the city definitely has made an impact on my life and made me who I am. Detroit has an unmistakable soul - nobody can duplicate the soul we bring to the game. From Motown to J Dilla to Eminem to anything." (Brainy Quote). Turn up or turn down this song!
Adele is the singe behind this amazing song! She once said, "I'm really happy to be me, and I'd like to think people like me more because I'm happy with myself and not because I refuse to conform to anything. I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that." (Brainy Quote). Adele is wonderful exactly as she is! Turn up or turn down this one!
Moment 4 Life?
Nicki Minaj once said, "As a little girl growing up in Southside Jamaica Queens, if anyone would've told me I'd have my own perfume one day, and be able to inspire young black girls everywhere, to go into Macy's or Nordstrom's and see their face staring back at them - I wouldn't believe them." (Brainy Quote). We are glad she chose to stick it out and follow her dreams. She has made such an impact in the world of hip hop.
Something Just Like This?
John Tesh mentioned this band, "'Entertainment Tonight' would send me out to do interviews with musicians like Sting and Coldplay, and I was able to watch how they plan their shows. The late Jerry Garcia of another band always had a game plan, but he also was flexible if he had to change something at the last minute." (Brainy Quote). People who are a fan of this band know how amazing their music can be! This song is super amazing!
I Like It?
Cardi B is one of the most real and relatable rappers out there. She once said, "I could really make a song of hurt because I've been hurt by a lot of men. I'm talking about, like, how sad I be when a dude rejects me. And I never talk about that because I refuse to let people know that I get sad because when a man don't answer my calls." (Brainy Quote). Crazy to see how vulnerable she can be when she isn't making music!
Leona Lewis is the gorgeous and talented singer behind this lovely song. It is a love song! Leona has a distinctive look and she described it when she said, "When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that's a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it 'me'. I think that's the thrill in fashion." (Brainy Quote). She is incredible!
Never Be the Same?
Camila Cabello once said, "I would wake up really early and go into the hotel bathroom, put a towel over the toilet, and put my laptop there. I'd put my headphones on and just write. And so now when I do writing sessions, and I am stuck on a part, or I can't figure out a chorus, I'm just like, 'Give me a second,' and I'll go to that bathroom." (Brainy Quote). It is awesome that she loves music so much!
