Another Fifth Harmony Alum Dropped A Major Bop: Ally Brooke Released ‘No Good’ Her First Solo Venture

The Fifth Harmony alum, who won third place on “Dancing With the Stars,” just dropped a new track and we’re excited. Ally’s new song is relatable, catchy and upbeat. The singer’s first solo song is all about relationships that are no good for you and how hard they are to get out of. Who knows, maybe this track will propel Ally into to the top of the charts like former band-members Camila and Normani. Here’s everything we know.

‘No Good’ is a Disco-inspired song with all-too-relatable lyrics.

Ally Brooke’s new song ‘No Good’ is a disco-inspired track about a love that’s ‘no good’ for her, but she just can’t stay away. If you can’t relate to that story well then it must be nice to be you.

With lyrics that tell the story of a hard-to-quit toxic relationship, the former Fifth Harmony member is preaching to the choir over here. In the first verse of the song Brooke sings “You put me through hell. But I can’t quit for heaven’s sake.” The pre-chorus has us feeling even more seen; “Make a promise that I’m leaving. But my heart only wants what it wants. In the madness what a feeling, I’m hung up should be hanging it up.” 

The song was written by a team of celebs, which will no doubt help make it a success.

According to Billboard, the song was written by an all-star team of chart-topping artists including Justin Bieber, G-Eazy, Demi Lovato, and Kim Petra. The track also features a sample from the 1987 Kelly Charles classic “You’re No Good For Me.”

Brooke’s new single is an exciting release for her fans. ‘No Good’ is her first completely solo venture. Her previous releases, ”Low Key,” “Lips Don’t Lie,” and “Higher” all featured other artists. “Low Key” featured Tyga, “Lips Don’t Lie” featured A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and “Higher” was a collaboration with Matoma.

Just hours after releasing her new song, Ally won third place on DWTS.

The bop of a track was released just hours before the season 28 finale of DWTS aired. After nearly being eliminated in last week’s episode, this week Brooke and Sasha Farber danced it out and were awarded the third place. The couple earned a perfect score of 30/30 for their Freestyle, despite failing to nail a lift at the beginning of their performance. The judges made no mention of the mistake and still gave them a perfect score.

Brooke took to Instagram to share how important the dance competition has been for her.

Amid all of her posts about “No Good” on her Instagram Story, the 26-year-old shared a bittersweet post about her dancing journey coming to an end. “Tonight was our last rehearsal,” she lamented. “So many emotions that I’m feeling. I cannot express how incredible this whole experience has been for me. This show will forever have a piece of my heart. And so will @sashafarber1. Thank you for being not only a wonderful partner, but a wonderful friend. You have brought the best out of me. And for that, I’ll never be able to say thank you enough. I love you Sash. Tomorrow is the finale. Our final dances together. Let’s go and shine.”

The former Fifth-Harmony singer teased the release of her new single on Instagram.

Just last week the 26-year-old singer took to Instagram to tease her fans by sharing the cover of her single on the social media platform. A few days later, Ally shared a snippet of the disco-tinged banger. 

The song ends on a positive note, after dragging all of us who can relate it.

“You’re no good for me, I don’t need nobody,” the rising star belts on the chorus. “Don’t need no one, that’s no good for me.”—can I get an amen? It’s only been one day since the song’s release, but it already sounds like a breath of fresh air in comparison to the mid-tempo tracks dominating the music scene.

With any luck, radio stations will get behind “No Good” and propel the song to the top of the charts. After laying the groundwork, it’s time for Ally to land her very own “Havana” or “Motivation,” like former band members Camila Cabello and Normani, did.

Fans are hoping that the single means that a debut solo album might be on the way to drop this coming 2020.

Bad Bunny’s ‘Yo Perreo Sola’ Music Video Has Drag, Female Empowerment, And Artistic Styling That Is World-Class

Bad Bunny is known to push gender norms and supports the LGBTQ+ community. His music videos are artistic expressions of the world he wants to live in. His latest music video for the song “Yo Perreo Sola” is catching everyone’s attention for several reasons including the trapero singing and dancing in full drag.

Bad Bunny starts his “Yo Perreo Sola” music video in a hot red leather drag outfit.

Like, dayum. The Puerto Rican trap star did not hold back. His look was everything as he gave us some “Oops…I Did It Again” dominatrix vibes. The fans were not prepared for this but it seems that most of them are all for Bad Bunny pushing boundaries even further in Latin trap.

The imagery is literally being celebrated for its strong statement for the LGBTQ+ community.

Bad Bunny was very outspoken about Alexa Negrón Luciano, a trans woman who was murdered in Puerto Rico and misgendered in media reports. The singer was on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon” and used the moment to protest the treatment of Luciano’s legacy. Bad Bunny wore a shirt that read in Spanish, “They killed Alexa, not a man in a skirt.”

Bad Bunny fans were ready to defend their fave and his new music video.

To many, Latin trap is still a place where homophobia and misogyny fester in lyrics by some of the top performers. Bad Bunny is one artist that has been fighting against that culture from within. He has bent gender norms in music videos and it has set his career apart from other Latin trap musicians.

And they are all celebrating the anguish of straight men who listen to Bad Bunny and have social hang-ups.

The same homophobia in Latin trap is reflected within the community. Bad Bunny’s unapologetic willingness to take gender and flip it on its head is just one thing fans love about the trapero.

You can watch the full video below.

Bad Bunny never disappoints, does he?

Someone Turned Cardi B’s Coronavirus Rant Into A Remix Now It’s On The Billboard Charts

Who knew Cardi B’s rants could be music to someone’s ears.

If you haven’t already heard, Cardi B went one very long Instagram rant about the Coronavirus pandemic and its global repercussions. Last Wednesday, the Dominican rapper posted a 46-second video on Instagram airing out her fears and grievances about the disease. Towards the end of the clip Cardi B delivered the lines “Coronavirus! S*** is real! S*** is getting real!”

Now it’s Billboard hit.

Over the weekend, the Brooklyn-based DJ iMarkkeyz chopped up the soundbite and released a track called “Coronavirus.” The bit has Cardi B’s rant on loop as a trap beat plays beneath it. It didn’t take long for “Coronavirus” to take off– the song we mean. The song broke into the pop charts internationally in Bulgaria and Brazil over the weekend and eventually began to climb the ranks of iTunes. By Thursday the song was top 10 in the United States iTunes chart.

You might think the song’s virality is just another schtick but uh uh.

Cardi B and iMarkkeyz have pledged to donate proceeds from streams and downloads to go towards those affected by Coronavirus.

According to Billboard “As preliminary reports indicated, the remixed tune ‘Coronavirus’ sold 3,000 copies in the week ending March 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sales total prompts a No. 9 debut on Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales and a No. 13 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts dated March 28. In addition, ‘Coronavirus’ picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period”
