Looking for a nice way to unwind as the afternoon wears on? Too bad, because we’re throwing a new deep house cut at you, courtesy of DJ Liam Keegan — here using the monicker N.L.B. (aka Never Look Back) — so get to dancing! The track, “Your Lies,” adds to Keegan’s impressive resume, which already includes remixes he’s done for such top-notch hits as Selena Gomez‘s “Come & Get It,” Pink‘s “Raise Your Glass” and Katy Perry‘s “California Gurls,” to rattle off just a few.
And, really, the above cover art for this gem is so iconic, how could we not make you aware of it? Head below to get yet another ’90s house fix, courtesy of “Your Lies,” which hit iTunes today. More »
Ciara talks about the joys of pregnancy in the latest issue of W magazine and proudly shows off her beautiful baby bump in a stunning pictorial. The R&B diva displays her magnificent belly in a crop top in one fierce pose and reclines in the dirt in another striking image. Needless to say, she looks gorgeous in all of them.
While most of the interview is dedicated to CiCi’s impending motherhood (“it feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough”), she does talk about new music. The “Body Party” singer claims an album is coming “really soon” and promises that the as-yet untitled opus will be her best yet. “I will go on record saying so.” More »
Iggy Azalea‘s debut LP The New Classic drew mixed reviews from critics but fans have given the hip-hop/pop opus a resounding thumbs up. The Australian rap diva’s album is predicted to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 copies in its first week, which should be enough for a top five debut on the Billboard 200.
Impressively, the newcomer is expected to sell more than rap heavyweight Future. His sophomore set Honest will sell less than 50,000 copies if predictions are accurate. The New Classic‘s opening bow has, no doubt, been buoyed by the success of Charli XCX-assisted smash “Fancy”. It shoots into the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and is shaping up to be a blockbuster hit. More »
2 Chainz promises a return to the streets on his forthcoming Freebase EP, and while it’s serving as a placeholder between B.O.A.T.S. II and III, this looks to be no half-assed project.

From Katy Perry to Justin Timberlake (see: “Not A Bad Thing”), pop stars are demonstrating that the new trend in music videos in 2014 is to make one that’s essentially a non-music video. So here we have Perry’s eight-minute visual for Prism single “Birthday,” wherein we meet the five alter egos presented in the clip’s recent teaser and promo posters — that would be Goldie The Dancer, Ace The Animal Trainer, face-painting Mandee, Yosef Shulem and Kriss The Clown.
The video’s intro informs us that Katy “attended five birthday parties” last month, only “no one knew it was her.” What proceeds to happen, in outrageous documentary-style, is… oh, screw it — you all saw Bad Grandpa, right? No? Well, just watch above and then you’ll be all set. More »
Twin-sister act Say Lou Lou offer up a simple but effective visual for their latest single “Everything We Touch” (due out June 2nd). In the video, V magazine cover girls Miranda and Elektra Kilbey sing in front of a stark black background before appearing in the buff, fully covered in gold paint — because obviously everything they touch turns to…
The gorgeous track is yet another piece of thinking-person’s pop from the pair, whose debut album will hopefully be out before the close of 2014. Let’s put positive vibes out there for “Everything We Touch”being met with the mainstream success it absolutely deserves. Radio needs these girls right now. More »
