Review: MMG 'Self Made, Vol. 3': As Money Pours In, Originality Drops A Smidgen

September 24th, 2013 6:20pm EDT
http://images.starpulse.com/news/bloggers/6/blog_images/self-mad
Let’s just cut to the chase… this is the third Maybach Music Group compilation.  That’s a statement in itself.  While the saying is that “third time’s charm”, this particular installment actually seems to be less enthralling than the previous installment.

Shakira-LMK-015229.jpg
Who is the best dancer in the music game today? Well, the answer to that question is open for discussion, and up to you to decide.

Used primarily to liven up stage performances, music videos, and as an added extension to the visual platform. Here are a few of today's top performers in music for whom the medium of dance has become second nature.
