Olly Murs (Ft. Snoop Dogg) - Moves | Song Review

Olly Murs shot to fame during the sixth series of The X-Factor UK in 2009. He has had multiple smash hits over the years such as 'Unpredictable (Ft. Louisa Johnson)', 'Troublemaker (ft. Flo Rida)', 'Dance With Me Tonight' and many others.

He has been taken a little break for 2 years but he is back to bringing out music and he has brought out his comeback single 'Moves (ft. Snoop Dogg)'. He is also about to drop his sixth studio album!

His new single, 'Moves' was produced by Steve Mac and co-written by a team consisting of Steve Mac, Ed Sheeran, Ammar Malik and Snoop Dogg. This song does sound like a song Ed Sheeran would have written - maybe the song was originally written for Ed but decided to give it to another artist?

Olly Murs has a very distinct sound to his songs, there is always a groovy production which makes it fun and dance-able. I really like this song! As I have mentioned, it is very much an 'Olly Murs' song with a twist of Ed Sheeran and I like it. Snoop Dogg also adds that extra grooviness to it - as he always does with any song.

His previous album '24 hrs' (released in 2016) didn't do too well and it wasn't a massive hit with music critics either. However, it seems like Olly and his team has taken time to perfect his new album - which I am excited about.

Overall, this single is a good come-back single for Olly! I really like it, I can see this song being a smash hit within the club scene.

Overall Rating:
★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all. Listen to the song: Prodigal HQ · When We Bleed
