Constance (mima) – Who would have thought? The “Old Town Road” guy is now a pop star. And a gay icon. For the fact that everyone was absolutely in agreement that after the viral TikTok song of all viral TikTok songs nothing will work for the unknown rapper with the stupid name, Lil Nas X is impressive. Not only because he is slowly but surely emerging as a pop rapper with an absolutely unique voice, but also because every single single has hit like a bomb so far. The two “Montero” precursors in particular were tough: The Jack Harlow collaboration “Industry Baby” is a streaming monster, and the title track “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is already the definitive gay hip hop Anthem. What else do you expect from a record? Well, features with Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and Elton John for example. The team around little Nas has delivered reliable quality so far, too much shouldn’t go wrong.

I made what I think was special out of a difficult situation. Without the pandemic, such a harmoniously balanced instead of angular album would never have been made.“Guess who could have said that? Probably not, many artists currently have such sentences on their lips. The answer: Peter Maffay. The above quote comes from an interview in the Augsburger Allgemeine, in which the socially committed hit rock singer talks about his album “So Weit”, on which he deals with personal fates and gives pseudo-philosophical calendar sayings such as Life never goes as planned and not just straight ahead of yourself. The texts did not flow from his pen, however, but grew on Johannes Oerding’s crap. Great. Paired with Maffay’s compositions, “So Weit” makes less of a ‘harmoniously balanced’ impression, but rather acts like a substitute if the Bach flower drops should just be empty. Let’s see if the rest of it has become similarly ‘special’.

Max Mutzke is probably one of the most versatile artists in Germany: He started his career with an ESC participation, brought out albums that were sometimes jazz-heavy, sometimes pop-heavy, and the German music world can no longer be imagined without it. This summer Mutzke then proved that he could pass as a double of a Bourani or a Mark Forster. This is exactly what you think when you hear the ARD Olympic song “Beste Idea”: In the past, Max would not have been able to write such a polished song. Even with his last albums there was something bad to be suspected. However, if you still have “Durch Einander” in your head, it is all the more sad that he has now apparently left his jazzy time with “Wunschlos Süchtig” completely behind and has joined the empty German pop.

Strokes of fate change people. In his current single “Bitter Taste”, Billy Idol addresses death, rebirth and change and refers to his serious motorcycle accident 31 years ago: “I think everyone felt more thoughtful during the pandemic. So it seemed only logical and natural to write something about my motorcycle accident. Perhaps I left disrespectful teenage Billy by this roadside and opened the door to an observant father and a more sensitive musician“. The single sets the mood for the upcoming EP” The Roadside “. Apparently, the 65-year-old didn’t want to hang out in his house and grow old in peace, as the last seven year break suggested.

While Philipp Poisel had his eyes on the big, wide world with “Mein Amerika” and traveled to this place of longing especially for his album, the style of “Neon” stands in complete contrast to it. Since carefree travel was not possible for a long time, a replacement was needed. For Poisel, the fantasy that enables you to immerse yourself in other worlds. This is exactly what the album stands for: dreaming of other spheres. In “Was Von Uns Bleibt” he spans a future world and raises the central question about the consequences of climate change: “Tell me what remains of us, what remains of us / When there is no more ice floating on the seas“,”Give me a place where I can stay / Where the sun will still shine a hundred years from now“. It will be interesting to see whether he will manage to keep the balance between ’emotion’ and ‘kitsch’ on the rest of the tracks.
