JoJo - Keep Forgetting (To Forget About You)  

It's been such a long wait for JoJo's new album that someone at her label obviously decided they couldn't be so mean as to keep this incredible new song away from us for a moment longer! It leaked a few days ago, and although I am pleased to hear such an ace new song, I remember JoJo only having one song I particularly loved on each of her previous albums, so I'm hoping this isn't the only good one on her new album, as I'm sure she wouldn't have wanted her best song to leak so early. The album isn't actually expected to be released until next year. Keep Forgetting is a very emotional mid-tempo pop song, and the fact that it's produced by Billy Steinberg and Josh Alexander, the guys responsible for Too Little Too Late, much of The Veronicas' first album and Don't Let It Go To Your Head by Fefe/Lilyjets/Jordin should give you an idea of what to expect. It's very, very good indeed!

Backstreet Boys - All Of Your Life (Need Love)  

RedOne has done two tracks for the new BSBs album, and it turns out that this one, which leaked recently, is even better than the single! I do love Straight Through My Heart, but All Of Your Life is my favourite song of those I've heard from the new album so far. I think I even like it better than Bigger, on which they reunite with Max Martin! The funny thing about All Of Your Life is that it's RedOne's most Swedish song ever. It sounds a bit like his usual sound, but the most striking similarity for me is to BWO! The backing music sounds just like them. In fact, if BWO did a song with RedOne, it would probably sound quite like this, and now I'm kind of sad that Nadir is so sought after now that he's unlikely to ever work with BWO...
