Album Reviews: Velvet Negroni, Maneskin, and Coco Jones

Explicit Language

Bulli by Velvet Negroni

I'd never heard of Velvel Negroni, but I found this album interesting to listen to.  It's an odd blend of music that somehow works together in an interesting way.  Fun to listen to on a road trip or out on a walk with the dog.  

RUSH! by Maneskin

Another band I knew nothing about before listening to this album.  This is their 3rd album since 2018, they are an Italian band based out of Rome.  They are a punk/pop band I think you could say with a bit of a quirky and vulgar take on things.  Not my thing, but still a solid album though too long at 17 tracks. 

What I Didn't Tell You (Deluxe) by Coco Jones

Coco Jones is yet another one I've never heard.  She's an actress/singer who has been around for a while.  She was on Disney shows and has continued to act after leaving the Disney world.  She's always been recording music.  What I Didn't Tell You came out back in October of 2022 it was a 7 song EP, she has now come out with a deluxe version which runs at 11 songs, so a full album.  Like the other two albums in this review, it is a solid album but nothing really special about it.  This is pretty standard 2023 R&B and Jones has a good voice.  Wanna try some 2023 slow groove R&B I would say give this one a try. 


  1. I'm glad to see rollerskating play such a prominent role in the Velvet Negroni video, which I enjoyed a good bit. Rollerskating is huge in my house, though I specifically am not a rollerskater.
