  1. Shake It Off

    "Shake It Off" is a song performed by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, taken from her tenth studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi. It was written and produced by Carey along with Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, and Johntá Austin. The song initially impacted radio on July 12, 2005 as the album's third single in the United States, while "Get Your Number" served as the album's third single elsewhere. "Shake It Off" was later released as a single in Australia and New Zealand, and as a double A-side with "Get Your Number" in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Described by Dupri as "ghetto", the track is a R&B song that makes use of pop and hip-hop influences and a simple, sparse production. Lyrically, the song follows Carey as she moves on from her relationship with an unfaithful lover, packing her things and breaking up with him over an answering machine. The song was well received by music critics, with many complimenting its simple yet inspirational lyrics, as well as calling it a standout track from the album. Additionally, several critics, as well as Dupri himself, compared the song and its production to the material from Usher's Confessions. The song peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, as it was barred by Carey's own "We Belong Together" and Kanye West's Gold Digger for six weeks. Furthermore, it marked the first time a female lead artist occupied the top two positions of the Hot 100. The song achieved strong charting in other worldwide territories in which it was released, peaking at numbers six and fix in Australia and New Zealand, and numbers fifteen and nine in Ireland and the United Kingdom, respectively.

  5. The Texas senator:

    New York , Sanders vowed. The Republicans were battling for 95 delegates. Republican Donald Trump, originally from Queens, would need to win more than 50 percent of the vote statewide - – and dominate across the congressional districts -- to have a shot at claiming all those delegates. The importance of every last delegate has increased in recent weeks as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has appeared to outmaneuver Trump’s campaign in the behind-the-scenes preparations for July’s convention. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has been laying the groundwork for a contested convention – - where no candidate has the necessary 1,237 delegates to clinch the nomination – - by getting allies elected as delegates. That way, if voting extends to a second round, some of those pledged to Republican Donald Trump on the first round could peel off and support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. This has heightened the pressure on Republican Donald Trump to clinch the nomination before the convention, though Cruz’s recent wins have made that harder. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who infamously panned Trump's New York values earlier in the primary, had been bracing for a tough showing in the Empire State. The Texas senator was already looking ahead on the primary calendar, turning The Texas senator attention to Pennsylvania, where The Texas senator delivered a speech calling on Americans to join together to move the country forward. It is time for us to get up, shake it off and be who we were destined to be.
