Collaboration Special
30th July 2012 - 5th August 2012
Since it is the holidays, I haven't been watching the music channels as there has been no reason to get up in the morning. So here is where my problem comes in, I am struggling to think of music videos I should review, so after looking at the New Releases for this week I realised there was quite a few collaborations. Which sparked off an idea.

For a few days I have been trying to make a collaboration circle. This is a circle that starts with a new release and goes through 7 other collaborations and comes back to the new release. I made it work, but then realised I have already reviewed one of those music videos, so after hours of trying to change my circle, I have finally managed to connect them all. However one song is VERY new, and the release date of the music video is the 2nd August 2012, I really hope there is no delay and the music video is published on YouTube on that day, otherwise this special will fail. Let's hope not. So here is my Collaboration Circle:

Calvin Harris collabs with Example - We'll Be Coming Home
Example collabs with Laidback Luke - Natural Disaster
Laidback Luke collabs with Swedish House Mafia - Leave The World Behind
Swedish House Mafia collabs with Pharrell - One (Your Name)
Pharrell collabs with Pitbull - Blanco
Pitbull collabs with Shakira - Get It Started
Shakira collabs with Dizzee Rascal - Loca
Dizzee Rascal collabs with Calvin Harris - Dance Wiv Me

So my Collaboration Special is officially over, and it's back to normal for next week, but I am thinking about some for specials for the future, watch this space, there will be more to come! There are two videos that win my special as they both got 5 stars, but since we're not allowed a tie, I've decided to declare "Get It Started" the winner as it was a great music video and I was surprised to find out there was a narrative.
