Charley says VIDEO! Hadise – Biz Burdayız

June 16, 2012

New Hadise! The Belgian Idool 2003 hopeful turned Eurovision finalist turned Turkish superstar starts off her next album campaign with “Biz Burdayız“. With this song and video the Charley says POP! favourite seems to have gone more urban than ever before.

I’ve only listened through the song once at this point, so I can’t really offer any major pop insights, but, you know, I’m just happy there’s new Hadise music and that I know about it. I’d completely missed her last Turkish album campaign until the ever amazing Mike over at Pop Trash Addicts posted about it. Always awkward when you’re supposed to be “that Belgian pop guy” and you don’t even know something’s been released…

I don’t want this post to be all “COME BACK TO BELGIUM HADISE”, but then again, yeah, kind of. Look, Hadise is a kind and talented girl, so I wish her all the international success in the world. And, I mean, when presented with the choice of being A-list in the giant Turkish community or fighting an uphill battle in the Belgian pop scene, it’s pretty clear where your priorities would lie. So I’ll be supporting Hadise’s foreign endeavours and if I have to resort to random German eBay importers for a physical copy of her next pop gem then I will. But deep inside I’ll quietly be counting down the days for Hadise’s triumphant return to Belgium, even if just for one more glorious English album, just to show them lessers how it’s done.

I’ll be waiting, Hadise.

“Biz Burdayız” by Hadise is available… in Turkey.

PS: Just because it wouldn’t be a Charley says POP! Hadise post without it, let’s watch that clip of her 2006 TMF Awards performance again, shall we?

Charley says LIST! Ke$ha: The Clone Wars

April 29, 2010

It all began in a record label meeting not so long ago. “Right, we could do with another Lady Gaga, except more drunk and skanky”. And behold, Ke$ha became a global star. Little did they know that they’d set a precedent for an entirely new breed of trashpop starlets…


What: Noa – Anonymity
Lyrics: “I’m so cheap” “I don’t even wanna know your number”
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeisOx6IMgI
The facts: Noa came second in the talent show ‘K2 Zoekt K3’, missing out on being the new blonde member of kiddiepop trio K3. (Whose first new single after the show, ‘MaMaSé‘, was a massively amazing  massively cheesy pop anthem, by the way) The brilliant thing about the YouTube video above is that releasing a song about anonymously hooking up isn’t stopping Noa from cashing in on her newly gained young fans. The clip has Noa performing ‘Anonymity‘ on the Kids Top 20, because, really, nothing says premiering your song about casual sex like singing it in front of a room full of jumping kids.


What: Kyrah – Uh Oh
Lyrics: “Wake up wasted and it’s oops, I’m naked'”
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t33yyycIDA
The facts: This American 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.


What: Millionaires – Stay The Night
Lyrics: “If you get breakfast in the morning, you’ll be a lucky man”
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgX-onx-aGk
The facts: A dark-haired Ke$ha girlband. And to think Millionaires have actually been cleaning their act up a bit for their first major release! They’ve been doing buzz singles and EPs for a while now and you might remember ‘Ooh Uh Huh‘, the theme song they did for MTV’s ‘A Double Shot At Love With The Ikki Twins’. ‘Stay The Night‘ has a bit of an Asian girl group sound going on somehow. In terms of in-your-face-ness it’s probably the tamest out of the three songs posted here, but fortunately it’s just as catchy as the rest of ’em!
