It was Aug 31, 1987, when Michael Jackson released an album that made history. Bad soon became the second best-selling album at the times (the first was and still is Thriller, always by… Michael Jackson!). After Off the wall and Thriller the King leveraged for the third and last time the collaboration of Quincy Jones. Hard to say whether it’s better Thriller or this new album; the albums are quite different, Michael himself was a different person after 5 years, grown and changed both from an artistical and personal perspective, in a pop world that he contributed to create with Thriller, and that now featured new stars like Madonna and Prince, in the US, and with all the Brit pop of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, and others. Moreover, in 1982 Thriller just needed to fill the 40 minutes of a vinyl record, while this album had to fill also the 70 minutes of a cd. Anyway, it’s a fact that Bad entered in history as well, and it’s still one of the key albums (and videos) of the 80s
It’s quite common for us to dispute about who was the first worldwide star in a specific period. For example, the first top artist in the third millennium, or, in the next period, who will be the shining star of the 20s. But if I should say who was the last pop queen of the second millennium, the girl who, with her songs and videos, introduced us to the 2000s, well, there is no doubt. Britney Spears broke down full speed into the world of pop in late 1998 with her first song and video. Her success was so huge that her debut album, released at the end of 1999, topped the charts in many many countries, and her fantastic career definitely skyrocketed. Britney Spears was only 16, and she played the role of the attractive teenage girl, always balancing between being innocent and being attractive, a continuous teasing game of moves and gazes. She was not the first, of course; Lio and Elli Medeiros in France during the early 80, Madonna and her “Like a Virgin” look in the States, Sabrina Salerno with her “Boys” in Italy, Patsy Kensit of Eighth Wonder and Kylie Minogue were teenage icons of beauty and joy of life in the UK during the late 80’s. Many of them are still active, and few of them have been able to remain faithful to their character, and also to evolve during the years. Britney Spears did all of this. I can’t think of any Britney’s hit during all the years, that would not perfectly fit also in the early Britney character ad attitude. It’s a sort of, how to say, everlasting Britneyism!

It’s a pity Kylie Minogue publicly said in an interview that she will never do a similarly styled Impossible Princess album again. It would’ve been perfect, at this point in her career, to make one, because most of her younger fans would not be familiar with the work she did in this album. This was released way back in 1997 – and even I, who was already musically active at that time, didn’t quite notice the album, mainly because it wasn’t pushed hard enough by her record company here in the Philippines. Though the songs in the album are not the usual Kylie Minogue songs that one is accustomed to listening to, especially that her output these past two decades have largely been dance-inspired albums, another one of this type of this album late in her career, would definitely get her fans talking – and hopefully see her from another perspective. Yes, her Golden album was in itself a very personal album, it wasn’t as adventurous as this one. For this album, it was like Kylie Minogue said to her production team – “Fuck it, let’s do something different, something I’ve never done before, vocally, something that I don’t usually do, something that would make my fans do a double take – when they hear the songs from this album on the radio”. Incidentally, Kylie Minogue, had songwriting credits in almost all the songs in this album, produced some of the tracks and worked with different producers whose previous work verged more on rock, trip hop and electronic music – and the results are quite evident in the songs from this album. Yes, the dance influence is still there – I don’t think you can totally eradicate that from any Kylie Minogue album – but the tracks have veered away from it – and it is one of those rare instances that you can hear her in a rock-inspired ditty.
There is not much artists in the whole world who can make hit of almost every song they publish, but this man has power to do that. David Guetta started his career by working in the night clubs in 80s and 90s and as a result he founded producer house named Gum Productions. His first "big job" was in 2001 when he published his first album Just a Little More Love. After that he just continued with amazing work. His fourth studio album One Love released in 2009 included features by Kelly Rowland, Akon, Kid Cudi, will.i.am, Ne-Yo, Estelle and other. Also, it provides 15 danceable tracks, among them hit singles such as "When Love Takes Over", "Sexy Bitch" and "Gettin' Over You", and all of them reached #1 UK and charted high internationally. Guetta's first major international release, the album received generally favourable reviews from music critics, and was a commercial success, selling over 3 million copies globally."When Love Takes Over" was released as the first single and featured Kelly Rowland. The song was a worldwide hit and peaked at number one in the UK and won the Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical Grammy Award, selling over 5.5 million copies worldwide. "Sexy Bitch" was the second single from the album and featured Akon. The song has become a worldwide hit, reaching the top spot on thirteen different charts. It peaked at number one in the UK as well as many other countries. "I Wanna Go Crazy" was the album's only promotional single, released on 24 August 2009. "One Love" was released as the third worldwide single from the album and featured Estelle. It topped the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart. "Memories" was released as the fourth single on 15 March 2010 and features Kid Cudi. The song peaked at number one in Belgium, Czech Republic and Netherlands. He had the opportunity to work with lot of pop artists such as Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland, Flo Rida, Shakira and many more. From 2006 he was nominated for many Grammy rewards, but year 2010 was special because he was nominated for even 5 rewards and managed to get one of them.
