 The Rooster’s Personality

chinese-new-year-rooster-616People born in a year of the Rooster are very observant. Hardworking, resourceful, courageous and talented, Roosters are very confident about themselves.

Roosters are always active, amusing and popular among the crowd. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful.

Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm at any occasion.

Roosters expect others to listen to them while they speak, and can become agitated if others don’t. Vain and boastful, Roosters like to brag about themselves and their accomplishments.

Their continually seeking the unwavering attention of others annoys people around them at times.

Jay Z Bringing Beyoncé and Prince to Barclays Center for Charity Concert

Jay Z’s Tidal Streaming Service Has Split The Music Industry Apart ……?
When Jay Z launched Tidal at a star-studded event in March, it was with the aim of saving the music business: a vow to give artists a fair share of revenue than other streaming services such as Spotify. And he wasn’t alone, either. Kanye West, Beyonce, Usher, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Jack White and Arcade Fire all joined him for the bash in New York, each pledging to create a fairer system for musicians.

Jay Z and all starsSince then, though, its found itself a target of constant criticism. Mumford And Sons, Lily Allen and Noel Gallagher have all questioned its purpose and doubted whether it will ever achieve its goals. People have claimed its a model that only favours mainstream acts – the ones least at threat by streaming in general – and that it’s little more than a vanity project.

Jay Z - TidalSpotify co-founder Martin Lorentzon
“I would say that I have 99 problems but Jay Z is not one of them.”

Jay Z Bringing Beyoncé and Prince to Barclays Center for Charity Concert

Prince - TidalSo, the rapper Jay Z will have friends, family and business associates on hand at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Oct. 20 for “Tidal X: 1020,” a charity concert to celebrate his underdog streaming music service. In addition to Jay Z, the night’s performers include his wife, Beyoncé, and a handful of Tidal’s high-profile partners: Prince, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and more.

The company said in an announcement that all ticket proceeds would support charities and that New World Foundation, which focuses on civil rights issues, would administer all funds, in association with Sankofa.org, a social justice nonprofit founded by Harry Belafonte. The event’s Ticketmaster page states that donations will benefit “nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing positive community relations and effecting systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies.”

Tickets will be available, for $74-$244.

DJ June New York Club Chart ニューヨーク・クラブチャート– August 4, 2015

D.R.A.M.Знаменитый японский женщин-ди-джеем в Нью-Йорке

1. Cha Cha – D.R.A.M

メキシカン調の楽しい&のんびりしたトラックに、TVゲームのスーパー・マリオ音をサンプリングしてループされてて なんとも面白い曲です。Dramのほのぼのした歌声がまた味があって良い。バージニア出身のニューカマー D.R.A.M。Beyonceがこの曲に乗せて踊ったビデオ、そして「この曲聴くと ハッピーな気分になるわ!」ってコメントと共にインスタグラムに載せたとたん Cha Chaのミュージックビデオの再生数がいきなり400万件近くに。一夜にして 一躍人気者になってしまった!彼もBeyonceに 大変感謝しているとのこと。

”Cha Cha” is a very interesting song by Virginia-based rapper/singer D.R.A.M. The music is based on a loop from Super Mario World. Most recently, Beyonce, who posted a contagiously joyful Instagram video of herself dancing to it, her caption, “this song makes me happy,” is priceless. Almost instantly began to attract admiring reactions and the hit reached 4 million and it truly made him an overnight success. He said he loved her for what she did.

2. Hood Go Crazy – Tech N9ne feat. 2 Chainz & B.O.B

Hip Hop Classicの名曲 Digital Underground の The Humpty Danceのぶっといベースラインを大ネタ使いしてて ビートがとってもカッコいい!オールドスクールテイストを残しつつ 今人気のラッパーが代わる代わるにラップしてて、楽しいです。クラブでもかかってます。

Great beats! That bending bassline sampling Hip Hop Classic, Digital Underground’s “The Humpty Dance” is the most interesting here. “Hood Go Crazy” features 2 Chainz, one of the best feature artists of the last decade and B.o.B., a great pop rapper still sounds like Old School Hip Hop. It’s currently making noise at clubs.

3.  I’m Up – Omarion feat. Kid Ink & French Montana

いまだに Post To Beがクラブで根強く人気のOmarion。今度は これまた人気の French MontanaとKid Inkをフューチャーリングして Post To Be に似た感じの踊れるR&Bが新しく出て 良い感じです。この曲もPost To Beみたいに 流行る可能性ありです。ラジオでは良くかかってますが、まだあまりクラブでは聞かないかな。

With his latest single “Post To Be” still dominating he charts and airwaves, Omarion is now shifting his focus onto the follow up song, “I’m Up” featuring Kid Ink & French Montana. Not yet taken over clubs but it won’t take long to be all over the radio.
