I Blame My­self Capi­tol Sky Fer­reira ad­mits that the sec­ond video from her Night Time, My Time al­bum is based on real events in her per­sonal life. So while you may be aware that Fer­reira was ar­rested for drug pos­ses­sion last year, did you know she also per­formed a strip­tease rou­tine for de­tec­tives in the in­ter­ro­ga­tion room? Or that she averted a gang war in Comp­ton by means a chore­ographed dance rou­tine? Once again, the tabloids re­ally only tell you half the story.

KIESZA Hide­away PRINCE The Break­down

Lokal Leg­end “Lis­ten to me closely as the story un­folds/This could be the sad­dest story ever been told.” Eigh­teen years af­ter his ac­ri­mo­nious de­par­ture from the la­bel, the artist for­merly known as the Artist For­merly Known As Prince has re­turned to the Warner Mu­sic fold for a se­ries of box-set reis­sues, as well as this rather bril­liant new sin­gle. The Break­down may not lit­er­ally be the sad­dest story ever told (hello Mar­ley & Me?!), but Prince’s falsetto histri­on­ics here bear com­par­i­son with his very best work. Kilkenny’s Cap­tain Moon­light has been rap­ping about hurl­ing ever since Henry Sh­ef­flin was a mi­nor. On his lat­est ode to the sport, recorded for DCTV’s Now We’re Hurlin’, he’s joined by a posse of Dublin pre­tenders, in­clud­ing Costello, who raps about ur­ban hurl­ing, and city kids de­ter­mined “to rep­re­sent” in Croke Park. It sounds like a meld­ing, as op­posed to a clash of cul­tures. Kiesa Rae Ellestad is a 25year-old for­mer code­breaker in the Royal Cana­dian Navy whose de­but sin­gle went straight in at No 1 in the UK sin­gles chart last week. The video was shot in one take, around those Brook­lyn streets where MC Ham­mer pants are edg­ing ever closer to an un­likely fash­ion come­back.
