By Taylor Swift
Currently 1989 is the only album to hit 1.3 million in sales in just one week of its release. Taylor Swift appears to be a conqueror of 2014 as FORBES also named her the second highest earning female artist in the world currently trailing only Beyonce. Not to forget that “Shake it Off” has done what most tracks have been unable to do, “leap back to Billboard’s number one spot”again! For me there is no single song on 1989 that is not a top 10 material! Crop 1989, the album today and know why Taylor Swift still remains unstoppable!
On a Scale of 0 – 10, this ALBUM is an 8.2.
Four years after his last album, rapper, M.I. is back! And this time, it is to redefine the rap charts like he’s always done. Is he the best? Is the album worth your time?
If the buzz on social media is anything to go by, then “Chairman” is the best thing to happen to rap now! What do I think? Monkey with Chi-gurl added fun to the album and gave it life! But if you are one of those scared of the over-bearing influence of Nigeria’s first lady, Patience Jonathan, don’t act like you heard this track. As usual, Wizkid did what he always does when he’s featured on a track – stole the shine off the chairman himself. Milli and NOSA feature on ‘Brother’ really would make you wanna reconsider the rift you have with your brother that is if you have with one, but my favourite off the entire album is Human being where the short rapper featured friends, 2face and Sound Sultan!
On a Scale of 0 – 10, this ALBUM is a 6.
THE BOOK OF LIFE
St. Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Icecube, et al.
Though this movie’s storyline lacked depth the craft and details invested in the production of this animated movie took care of all the inadequacies the movie might have. You don’t expect any less when you have Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum and Icecube grace a movie of such. Grossing a meager $40.4 million USD has not taken anything off the movie considering the figures other movies have pulled at the Boxoffice in the last two months. The movie? The book of life is a fantasy/adventure movie about the legend of Marolo who sets off on a magical journey through magical and mystical worlds to his true love and defend his people! What would you be willing to do to save those you love?
On a Scale of 0 – 10, this MOVIE is a 7.8.
30 DAYS IN ATLANTA
St. AY, Vivica A. Fox, ramsey Nouah, RMD, Juliet Ibrahim, et al.
In the words of AY, “The main idea behind the movie was to recreate the Akpos character on the AY show’s WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE!” How was this achieved in the movie? Well, the movie, 30 days in Atlanta which got 10 nominations at the GIAMA (Golden icon Academy Awards) is about Akpos (AY) who won a 30-day holiday in Atlanta for two and decided to take the trip with his IT specialist brother, Richard (Ramsey Nouah). The comedy is about the experience of the duo on the trip. The production might be average, but the makers made up for this with the storyline and the actors and actresses abilities.
On a Scale of 0 – 10, this MOVIE is a 5.4.
