Over the past week, David Guetta‘s Nothing But The Beat re-release was announced, Lupe Fiasco and Guy Sebastian‘s “Battle Scars” video premiered, Calvin Harris‘ pair-up with Florence Welch was revealed and we posted both our 12 Most Anticipated Fall Albums list and our Labor Day Video Playlist. Our readers chimed in with their comments, which we’ve rounded up below for your weekend enjoyment. Read on!
:: Working Girl gave us a good performance review on Labor Day Video Playlist: Pop Stars At Work: “Best playlist ever! I am still laughing. Thanks for such a hilarious post.”
:: Naomi had some thoughts about 2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Who Will Win Best New Artist?: “Frank Ocean should win because out of all the nominees, his music is actually good, following fun. But since we live in a world that popularity outweighs talent in the music industry, over-obsessed fans will probably vote for One Direction or Carly Rae Jepsen.”
:: Andy Meier felt so close to one particular artist we didn’t include on Idolator’s 12 Most Anticipated Fall Albums: “Calvin Harris’s 18 Months. Nuff said.”
:: Danny was getting unnecessary feedback from David Guetta’s Nothing But The Beat 2.0 Re-Release Out In September: See The Tracklist: “LOL I heard all these songs and didn’t know they had anything to do with David Guetta. He’s almost too radio friendly.”
:: Troy asked the following on Lupe Fiasco Premieres “Battle Scars” Video: “Isn’t this actually Guy Sebastian’s single FT Lupe Fiasco?!?!”
:: Sami Finch replied: “It is being released by both – Guy in Australia, NZ etc and Lupe in USA and other parts of the world. It was originated as a single for Guy Sebastian’s Armageddon album but have to say each artist’s words and performances make it what it is EPIC! If they are happy to share, why should we care?”
:: Norm wasn’t so sweet on Calvin Harris Featuring Florence Welch “Sweet Nothing”: Listen: “frighteningly bad – Foghorn Welch really needs to learn how to sing in tune without just shouting.”
