An update on songs by Rita, Nelly and Lana

This isn't one of those music blogs where we tease you with new material then lose interest and leave you hanging. Oh no. Nosiree.

Here are some updates on our most popular* posts of the last few weeks.

:: On 24 February, I mentioned a song by Rita Ora called Party and Bullshit. It now has a video where Rita is seen HAVING FUN A PARTY but does not wade through a swimming pool of bullshit. Disappointing.

It also seems the track, which is her debut single in the US, has been re-christened How We Do (Party). Ho hum.

:: On 10 April, I posted a clip of Nelly Furtado's comeback single Big Hoops (Bigger The Better). I noted that the song sounded incredible, despite the heavily distorted audio in the video Nelly had put on her website.

The full song is up on YouTube now (and on iTunes if you live in certain "territories"). It's still very good, but I miss the distortion.

:: On several occasions, I have mentioned popular and totally authentic chanteuse Lana Del Rey. Her demo recordings have been kept as secure as a wig in a hurricane, which means that, with a bit of creative Googling, you can pretty much download an alternate mix of her entire debut album (hint: National Anthem comes out particularly well).

The one I'd been waiting for was album highlight Dark Paradise and, as if on command, it popped up on Soundcloud last night. Thanks, internet.
