I've been wanting to do this review for the best part of August, but I've never gotten to it until now. Guess what? The Script's back, folks! I've had my own personal rollercoaster with the Script (including highly praising "Breakeven" and being annoyed by "For the First Time"). Do I think that "Nothing" is the right single choice from Science & Faith for the Script? Read on to find out!

The music video for "Collide" has already been released. And guess what - Avicii's actually getting credit for the instrumental now! However, making such a good beat doesn''t matter if you can't capitalize on it. Was Leona able to do it with her X-Factor-winning voice in "Collide"? The video and my review are in the full article!

You know what? Let me start out first by giving out props to anyone who knew about Destinee and Paris (who were formerly in the Clique Girlz) before reading this article. The two sisters are great talents, at only 17 and 15; check out their YouTube profile if you don't believe me! However, does the production on the song live up to the talent that their voices can provide? Read on to find out!

Cobra Starship, of all bands, has been able to wow me with their track "You Make Me Feel...", which is now in the top 10 of the Project Mobius: Fab 50. Also, this song is accompanied by 7 big movers on the chart, as some songs that have been hidden in the back of my chart are finally getting the breakout they deserve. Which songs have moved up the chart? Click below to see!

Can you believe it? It seems that the normally strong, independent Jessie J has caught a taste of the American limelight and wants more, and has worked with Dr. Luke again on a new track, "Domino". However, is the song strong enough to become just as popular as it seems it should? Read on to find out!

Example is great for hit music as a whole in more ways than one. Not only is he able to be one of the first artists to bring dance music into the mainstream, but he is also able to make rapping co-exist with his electronic style. It's also very likely that "Stay Awake" will be the song that pushes dubstep past the tipping point and into a level of acceptance from the European music world - if it is good enough to become popular. Is that the case? Read on to find out!

I bet you've never heard of Patrick Stump before. However, I'm sure you know of him. The former singer of Fall Out Boy has "dance danced" all over the top of the charts as a lead singer, and is now trying to make his way as a solo singer in his first single, "This City". Lupe Fiasco provides his rap skills to the track, and for good measure. However, how does the song compare to today's releases? Read on for the review!

This week is the week of "comeback songs". Comeback songs are songs that had been previously charted, but were knocked out - then found their way back in! There are 4 of them on the chart this week (including 2 new re-entries), but the most prominent is definitely Britney Spears' "I Wanna Go". Click for the full article to find out if she was able to top the Fab 50 with her smash hit!

Finally! Finally, a song has come out that is perfect enough, genuine enough, simply produced and performed well enough to be my 1st 5-star song! For most of you, this will come as a surprise - especially because of how poor David Guetta's music has been so far this year - but this song has truly charmed me. Read on to hear the full song, and to find out why I love it so much!

In a week that should be dominated by Jay-Z and Kanye West's release of "Watch the Throne", Drake is able to surpass every one of their songs with his premiere of "Headlines". It's a release that has been highly anticipated in the hip-hop/rap music industry, and it has extremely high expectations. However, does the song hold enough prowess to meet those expectations? Read on to find out!

After "Don't Wanna Go Home" recently became a relative failure for Jason Derülo, the clean version of Chris Brown has released a 2nd single from September's album Future History in "It Girl". Will the new release live up to the title for Jason and be this season's "it" song? Click the link for the full article!

This week, Foster the People does the near-impossible for an alternative band and moves up to the top 5 on the Fab 50 with "Pumped Up Kicks". In other news, is Katy Perry still ruling the charts with "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"? Read on for the chart!

Yep, it's that time again! “The Edge of Glory” is starting to fade fast in both radio and sales, and Gaga needs to stay at the top. “Yoü and I” should do exactly that when it is released as a single on August 23rd. However, since it's coming from Mother Monster herself, we can expect nothing less. It's almost gotten to the point where we expect all of Lady Gaga's songs to be great masterpieces. Does “Yoü and I” continue that magnificent trend? Read on to find out!

The second major release from a diva this week lies in Britney Spears' "Inside Out". Taking a short break from making faster, dance/pop songs, "Inside Out" slows down and provides emotion with every beat. However, does that evolve the song into a hit? Read on for my review!

This week, I'll be highlighting a few divas' songs that are going to (likely) be future hits. The first of those is Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink to That)", which also uses part of Avril Lavigne from her hit song "I'm With You". However, should you be drinking to this song? Read on to find out!

Can you believe it? My favorite song of the spring, "Better With the Lights Off", is actually getting relatively popular now! This leads to its surprising re-entry on the Fab 50, this week. However, there's one question that you have to be wondering about: After it was unsuccessful in taking the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, is Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" able to hold on to the top spot on the Fab 50? Read on for the full chart!
This month was the official month of party rocking. Sure, there were other songs that piqued America's interest (such as Pitbull's "Give Me Everything" and Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"), but none compare to the impact that LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" had. However, there were many new songs that I reviewed recently that could be the next "Party Rock Anthem". What are they? Read on to find out!
