The name Jillian Banks may not mean much to a lot of people. Her debut album dropped last year, and she got a lot of praise for it. Critics loved it, but it wasn’t a mainstream sound. Now that MTV has called her out as the artist to watch, more people may recognize her.
As an artist with a debut album, Banks had a wonderful sound, but she didn’t really have a gimmick. Katy Perry dropped a bisexual anthem with “I Kissed a Girl.” Brittney Spears, in her early years, had the school girl costume that made her a rare teenage sex symbol. Fans failed to reach pop star domination because she just didn’t have any of this. What she did have, however, was great songwriting to showcase her talents.
She didn’t hit the pop circuit because she is not one of those artists that are designed to appeal to teenagers. Banks is young, but she has a grown up sound. She writes about love and love that is lost. In songs like “Beggin’ For Thread” she writes about how emotions and failed love can drive a person crazy. All of her wisdom shines through in her songwriting and this has kept her fan base growing. Her melodies on this album have also give her a unique sound. Many onlookers like Sam Tabar feel that the bass heavy tracks are bold and unique, and that is why her fans want more.

Pentatonix May Break Pop Music’s Ceiling
“Pitch Perfect 2″ hit theaters this weekend, featuring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson as they played as members of the Bellas, an underdog a cappella group. At one point in the movie the team faces off against Pentatonix, a real-life a cappella group.
Scott Hoying, a member of Pentatonix, felt that the movie was an over exaggeration of what real-life bands are like but at the same time noted that there were some things that were very similar, including how competitions are held at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, or ICCA.
Even with the movie, Pentatonix has enjoyed success in their recent years. Fans at The Aspire New Brunswick (theaspiregroupinc) know that, originally from Arlington, Texas, the group came together and started by making YouTube covers of famous top 40 songs, making their own videos in the process. They even started their own channel on YouTube. The band gained even more attention when their album entitled “That’s Christmas to Me” made it to Number Two on the US Billboard 200 last year.
With all of this in mind, Pentatonix now realizes they have a new challenge now that they’ll be making their own original music, but will be studying with Kelly Clarkson this summer when she launches her tour. For them this shouldn’t be very problematic, considering they’ve already gone platinum simply by making their own remixes and additions to songs that are already popular.
The second Avengers movie has had mixed reactions from fans and critics. While a few people have commended the movie for being balanced and mentioned how it was practically impossible to top the first one, others have been disappointed by the direction of Black Widow’s character and certain decisions taken by the team. This still doesn’t change the fact that Age of Ultron is a box office hit. In the 2012 Hero Complex, Whedon even mentioned that he was nervous about directing the second movie.
Recently, he made a statement saying that the movie practically “broke
” him. Could this be because of the backlash regarding the obvious but carefully hidden sexism in the storyline of Natasha Romanoff? Is it because of the pressures that come with directing a Marvel movie? It is, as of now, unclear.
A few fans like Jason Halpern have been discussing an important theory – what would have happened if someone else had been at the helm of Age of Ultron? The obvious choice is Guillermo del Toro of the Pacific Rim and Pan’s Labyrinth fame. Del Toro was also supposed to direct parts of the Hobbit trilogy but had to leave because of prior commitments. His vision, especially with superhero and sci-fi movies, is unmatched; his monsters are wondrous to behold.
Another great choice would have been Peter Jackson who gifted the world the Lord of the Rings movies and recently, the Hobbit trilogy.
Beyoncé Knowles is one of the sexiest women on the planet. She is famous for her soulful voice and beautiful curvy body. Many people across the world dream of having a body like Beyoncé, but few people will ever be able to acquire such a perfect figure. However, people should realize that Beyoncé Knowles didn’t get that body on her own. It took hard work and discipline to reach the level of perfection that Beyoncé now has according to Ivan Ong.
Beyoncé Knowles was recently asked about her beautiful body, and she said that she couldn’t do it without her dietitian who monitors her food intake. Beyoncé’s dietitian said that he instructs all of his clients to go on a vegan diet for a few weeks. A vegan diet supposedly cuts out many unnecessary calories and unhealthy fats. I have a feeling that many people are going to turn vegan after hearing the famed dietitian’s words. Beyoncé Knowles can do it, and we can too.
Dieting is not the only key to Beyoncé’s perfect figure. She also has a strict workout regimen that focuses on extenuating her beautiful curves. She does a lot of squats, and that’s how her lower half looks so round and full. Many of Beyoncé’s secrets were revealed on Mirror.
If there is an artist that is having a hard time getting back into the swing of things it is Rhianna. She released a single called “American Oxygen”, but it hasn’t gotten the buzz she thought that it would get.
Rhianna has been hitting the fans with different inconsistent sounds from a bunch of different perspectives. Some people thought that the “American Oxygen” song was about Eric Garner. It wasn’t, but it could have become part of the movement of songs that are being produced by artists that are trying to bring social change. Prince just performed a country with a song dedicated to “Baltimore” on Mother’s Day. This is a big thing for Prince, but the reality is that these songs seldom become hits.
Rhianna is known to be a hit maker notes Kevin Seawright of the studio. She can released tracks like this, but these tracks typically do not get the radio play that a star like Rhianna would expect. That may be the main reason that so many people are trying to figure out what she is doing next. They want to know if she is part of the movement for social injustice. Fans want to know if there will be a concert tour with Kanye West. There are so many questions that are going unanswered here. Fans want to get some type of idea of what the album is actually about. They are tired of waiting.
Kanye West has been the face of Chicago in the hip hop movement. He may be the most successful rapper from this area. This weekend he showed his great love for basketball by performing his new hit “All Day” at the Chicago Bulls game.
This was game 4 in the playoffs. Kanye performed the song in a surprise moment near the end of the first quarter. It may have gotten the crowd hyped, but it wasn’t enough hype for Rose and the Bulls to pull out a win. Cavalier star LeBron James would pull the same type of upset that Rose delivered to Cleveland fans in game three. It was a last minute buzz beater prayer shot. The prayers of King James were answered with a 2 point win over the Bulls.
Still, Igor Cornelsen had to be excited to see a rare appearance from Kanye. Even though he has multiple singles out he has not really been on a lot of shows. It is because he is spending a massive amount of time trying to promote his clothing line. He is serious about all of this, and he is working around the clock.
People that attended the game were glad to see West performing and putting some focus on his music again. Many Chicago fans are waiting for West to bring forth a new album and represent for Chicago again.
