TOP STORIES OF THE WEEK (APRIL 21, 2019)

It’s been a short week for me, with Easter and all that happening. However, there have been (at least) two main events: Game of Thrones’ season 8- premiere (yes, we in Sweden, get it Sunday to Monday night at 03.00AM) and an official confirmation for a next generation Playstation hardware.

Here are the most popular topics of the past week:

The game looks and feels a lot like the DEAD SPACE- titles from Visceral and EA: horror sci-fi survival action set in space. It’s a great thing!

MISSY ELLIOT TO DROP NEW ALBUM

New Missy Elliot album

After more than a decade (14 years, to be exact) Missy Elliot is about to release a new album.

““I just finished a long project I been working on since last year,” Elliot announced in an Instagram post. Missy’s last major release was her 2015 single “WTF (Where They From)” with Pharrell. Back in January, Elliot became the first female rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

My generation remembers hits as “One Minute Man”, “4 My People”, “Lose Control”, “Pass that duch”, “I’m really hot”, “Work it”, “Get your freak on” etc. Today she is 47 years old and it’ll be fun hearing her new music.

MUSIC VIDEO: KYLIE MINOGUE – ‘CAN’T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD’

Music video by Kylie Minogue performing Can’t Get You Out Of My Head. Taken from the album ‘Fever’ – released October 1st 2001 in Europe and Australia and February 26, 2002 in US.

This song was on every radio station here in Sweden back then and I wnted to share it with you, old and young alike. The younger generation may not know about the singress but this is what QUALITY MUSIC sounds like (used to) 😉
