"Side to Side" and "Come Up for Air" are both lovely.

I'm glad that you guys like the songs. :)

Concerning the collaboration, I have to admit that I don't care about Nicki Minaj in "Side to Side". She doesn't make the song worse, but she doesn't make it better either. :lol: So I think without her the song would be as good as with her. :)

It's sad that 'Side to Side' became the biggest hit from 'Dangerous Woman' because there are much better songs on there

That makes me even more curious about the album, because I really like "Side to Side", but if there are even better songs on "Dangerous Woman" then I'll really enjoy the album. :)

Many people seem to praise the album. I'll be sure to check it out in the next few days. :D

Thank you for all your comments. :)

"Getting Warmer", "Side To Side" and "Come Up For Air" are all brilliant, so fantastic Top20 so far! :D

A shame Skylar is not more successful. I've also finally really discovered her this year, despite knowing her for some time now as well.

I'm glad that you like the songs. :) I agree with you, Skylar Grey should be more successful. She's really underrated, unfortunately. :(

It's great to hear that you like it. :D What do you think about "Come Up for Air"? You mentioned that you would check it out, that's why I'm asking. :)

^ Oh yes I did! It sounds good, but didn't catch me enough yet. I should give the whole album some spins, though! Saved it to my library and hope I will have some times the upcoming weeks. :)

I would say that "Come Up for Air" is definitely a grower. It didn't catch me immediately either, but I really started to love it after I've listened to it several times. :)

I realized that there's a mistake in my comment for "Full Blown Love". It should say "Broods' music" and not "Brood's music", because they're called "Broods" and not "Brood". :lol:

I liked On What You're On but it didn't lend itself to performances so despite being on every show going they couldn't make it a hit :(

I'm glad that you like it and it's great that this song gets a lot of love even though it's just a bonus track (sometimes bonus tracks don't get the attention they deserve.) :)

"On What You're On" is so catchy and radio friendly, it definitely deserved more success. :(

A mess for Aura. IMO, the change of the artist name was a big mistake. For example, her Spotify fans didn't receive any kind of notification. (They merged the profiles now, but it's too late ...). I really like the song ...

I also think the change of her name was a mistake and it could be a reason why "Love Somebody" and "Indian Giver" flopped. I hope that she and her team will be able to save this era, because her music is still good.

I never got into Aura's 2016 songs, however I still look forward to an album. Can't believe it's been already 5 years since "Before The Dinosaurs"! :o I have always been a casual listener, she even liked a picture of her debut album on my instagram, that made my day! 8-)

Yeah, her last album was released way too long ago. :(
That sounds great, it would've made my day as well. :D
