New artist and their talent never ceases to amaze us. One new artist making an impression on the music industry is Didi Benami. She just recently released her new single, Gasoline. With inspiring and thought provoking lyrics this song is already making its way across the internet and onto the iPods of many. We are always excited when we find out about an artist who somehow slid under our radar, and Didi is no exception. The lyrics say you can’t fight fire with gasoline, how true. Lyrics are just as important as the voice in my opinion, yet Did has both, fantastic lyrics and a beautiful voice. Don’t miss out on getting her new single, we know we didn’t! For more information or to show your support pay a visit to Didi’s facebook, twitter, or website. Also don’t forget to buy the single which is available on both iTunes and Amazon!

If there is one person who knows how to make an impression, that person would be Taylor Swift. After coming out with her latest album everyone suspected that we wouldn’t hear anything else from her with the exception of a few singles here and there and television and concert appearances. We know another album is inevitable, but that would take some time, especially with Taylor, she puts her heart and soul into her meaningful lyrics. She recently surprised everyone with a few singles that are amazing and possibly better than a few on the actual album! One song in particular deserves recognition, that song is “Ours”.
In the song “Ours”, Taylor gives the listener a simple tune, that is quite possibly the most catchy thing we’ve listened to in weeks, and sings some lyrics with meaning that no doubt relates to her life somehow but can be transfered to the lives of the listeners. Taylor has showed us before how relatable she is, and this song is no exception. While the color of her dress is all that changed about the album cover for these few new singles that are now out, and no doubt topping charts somewhere right now, but the mood is slightly different in these new singles than that of the album. These songs show a much lighter side of the music that was only shown in small bits on the album. The published single is a more upbeat song compared to when she performed it at the CMA’s.
Regardless of a poor choice in album cover, we would’ve loved to see some brand new album covers featuring Taylor and possibly settings that relate to each single, we still love her new songs, especially “Ours”. It gets an easy 10 out of 10 here at Toast Pop! Have a listen for yourself!
