The Jonas Brothers are back and better than ever. Recently, my sister and I had the privilege of seeing them play at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

Post Malone’s album “Hollywood’s Bleeding” dropped last Friday, Sept. 6. This album contains two previously released songs, “Sunflower” and “Wow.,” which were already hits. I knew before listening that if the album was anything like the preceding singles, then it would be a hit. Throughout...

Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ underwhelms despite success

September 4, 2019

OK, let’s talk about the elephant in the room: Taylor Swift and her new album “Lover.” Overall, I was unimpressed. I listened to the album multiple times and I was bored. Her album lacks originality and complexity. Not one song stuck out to me; most of the tracks sounded very similar. Her new...
