TOP 5 | Most trending stories from the week of July 3rd to July 10th
The most Trending articles on Popdust from the week of Independence Day festivities!!!
We had a great national holiday last week and enjoyed such great weather (at least in New York City). July 4th, Independence day, gave us a short week, but there was still so much going on. There were fireworks, music video releases, food on the grill, some movies that are really hot... or not. I have central air and I will never go back. It is worth every penny and I will sacrifice any luxury just to afford the constant state of chill in the rooms. Catch up on what you missed when you were playing in the sun and staring at a sky full of lights.
#1 : LISTEN | Adam Lambert doesn't give "Two Fux" with new single
His work with Queen is rubbing off on his solo work, there's no mistake about that. Adam Lambert, who has dazzled fans all over the world as frontman to the legendary rock band, has dropped a guitar-heavy romper called "Two Fux," in which he forgets "his inner peace, in leather." The new mid-tempo track is, presumably, the first taste of his long-awaited new record, the follow-up to 2015's invigorating The Original High. Last week, the rock star debuted the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with band mates Brian May and Roger Taylor in tow.
From the syncopated vocal to the bouncy arrangement, ripped directly from Queen's heyday, and eerily so, "Two Fux" is Lambert at his best. He blasts the roof off with his brazen personality, calling all outcasts to carry the torch alongside him. There is a timeless feeling to the melody, too, solidifying him as an undeniably player in major pop music, regardless if radio plays him or not--which is a another discussion altogether. But the thing about Lambert is, he doesn't care, and that's why he has millions of fans all over the world. Consumers will, generally, support his work, no matter what. Thank you, streaming!
