Charley says SONG! Karma – I’m Sorry

March 28, 2011

Continuing our theme of Chilean born Belgian popstars, meet Andres P. Quiroz. Going by the name of Karma, he is set out to be Belgium’s next R&B wonderboy.

The biography in his YouTube video descriptions mentions him working with the likes of Stargate and Underdogs, but things really got going for him when his music was posted on ShowbizzONE.

The article came to Peter Muls’ attention, who promptly took Karma under his wings and got him signed to Mostiko.

You may remember Peter as being involved with about half of Belgium’s R&B scene, most famously launching Kaye Styles. He also had a hand in Cru5h 5, one of my favourite two-hit-wonder girl groups.

While Karma is working on his first album, a bunch of tracks are already floating around the net. These songs include both original ones and covers like ‘Gallery‘, originally by Mario Vasquez.

Of the brand new tracks ‘Take Me As I Am‘ is mentioned by Karma’s official site as a potential first single, but out of the songs online I hope they end up going with ‘I’m Sorry‘.

It’s not that I don’t like the former song, I’m just not too crazy on Andres’ voice in the chorus. ‘I’m Sorry‘ on the other hand has him sounding like a Michael Jackson influenced Ali Tcheelab on a ‘How To Save A Life‘ inspired R&B downtempo.

Whatever they end up releasing, I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

Charley says GUEST VIDEO BLOG! Kyrah says POP!

June 15, 2010

The gorgeous Kyrah is getting ready to release her debut single ‘Uh Oh‘ on July 11th.

Here’s what I had to say about the song earlier on Charley says POP!

“This pop sensation was discovered by our blog friends at Pop Trash Addicts. What I love about this whole thing, aside from the song being insanely catchy, is that Kyrah looks like a nice girl who could scrub up well enough to take home to your mother for a sunday brunch, yet her homage to Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love‘ video has her fooling around with some sleezy guy while her digitally enhanced vocals moan “Dance, sex, bed, floor…” Amazing”

I’m excited to tell you that Kyrah has done a guest video blog for Charley says POP!

Check out what the lovely singer has to say about pop, after the jump!

Move over, Jasper Erkens and Freaky Age. Here’s Breathe The Sound! Above is lead singer Simon Nuytten. Below is their song ‘Dance‘. Over here is a live cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Man In The Mirror‘. And this is the band’s MySpace profile. This isn’t usually my kind of music, but I find myself liking this quite a bit.
