This weeks songs are:

1) En Vogue – Don’t Let Go (Love)

Don’t Let Go (Love) was realised in 1996 by the American R&B group, En Vogue. This song appeared on the soundtrack to the amazing movie “Set It Off” (1996) as well as the groups third album, EV3. Don’t Let Go became the biggest single the group had ever released internationally and it reached the top ten in a number of countries. This track sold 1.3 million copies in the US and it’s the last single where the former band member, Dawn Robinson, sang the lead vocals. I love the emotive nature of this song but also the amazing vocals of the group, so check out this song:

2) Nelly Furtado Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)

Big Hoops is an R&B track released in April 2012 by the Canadian singer, Nelly Furtado. This song is the fifth single on her album, The Spirit Indestructible (2012). This track was influenced by Furtado’s teenage years and her love for hip-hop and R&B in the 90s. When Nelly Furtado was talking about this song, she says “I’m channelling my 14-year-old self because I used to put on these big hoop earrings and big jeans and backpack and go down and hang out in front of the mall and wait for my friends.” Big Hoops received mixed reviews from critics but I really love this song and I particularly enjoy the hooks. Check out this song:

3) Ed Sheeran – You Need Me, I Don’t Need You

This is one of my favourite tracks by Ed Sheeran and I also like the music video of this song, which is in black and white and features an actor who is rapping the song in sign language instead of saying it with his mouth. This song was released in August 2011 and it is the second single in his first studio album, (2011). You Need Me is a message to people who were hating on him, he describes himself as ‘real’ and says that he doesn’t need their approval because he knows that people need his music. Check out this great song:
