#albumoftheday / REVIEW: TAYLOR SWIFT: 1989

To some, it was a surprise that Taylor Swift opted to go the pop route on her new album 1989, named after the year she was born, but most of her longtime listeners saw this coming a mile away. After all, Taylor’s singles have been remixed for the pop market ever since she...

    1SAGAIN & JU BORA: ENDLESS WINTER Release Date:  12/12 Label:  Unknown I couldn't find a Wiki page in English about 1sAgain but a Luminosity page about Ju Bora states that she frequently collaborates with him. So, I'm assuming 1sAgain is the one who's doing the rapping, since that voice sounds male, and Ju Bora is […]
