Jessie J And Ariana Grande Are NOT Remaking Brandy And Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine”

You can either breathe easy or let out a great sigh of disappointment, because Jessie J and Ariana Grande are not teaming up to remake Brandy and Monica‘s R&B classic, “The Boy Is Mine.”

Despite the fact that Darkchild seemingly confirmed the collaboration for his upcoming 20th anniversary project, according to the UK’s Mirror, Jessie J quickly shot down those rumors herself on the American Music Awards red carpet. In fact, she even went so far as to reach out to Brandy about the idea.

“No, it’s not true, neither of us have agreed. Sadly people are believing it. I spoke to Brandy and I was like, ‘no it’s not happening’. Monica and Brandy are the best,” she said. It would be odd for Darkchild to dream up a collaboration without asking either of the participants, but that seems like a pretty stone-cold “no” on Jessie’s part, right? Ah, well. Maybe he was just listening to too much “Bang Bang.” More »

Selena Gomez Has Already Started Recording Her New Album For Interscope Records

Selena Gomez's 'For You': Album Review
Selena Gomez's 'For You': Album Review
We reviewed Selena Gomez's career-covering greatest hits compilation 'For You'.

Selena Gomez clearly doesn’t believe in resting on your laurels. After generating an avalanche of praise for her emotional performance of “The Heart Wants What It Wants” at Sunday night’s (November 23) American Music Awards, the 22-year-old would be forgiven for taking a minute to soak up the triumph. Instead, she’s already in the studio working on her next album. And the baby-faced diva is using her current hit single as a reference point.

“It’s exciting for me to start off with something like ['The Heart Wants What It Wants']” she revealed in a radio interview. “And then start leading into writing about all the other things that are going on in my life and have gone on in the past year or so.” It’s obvious that Selena is taking a very different approach for her first project with Interscope Records. “I’m excited to put more of my heart and soul into the next chapter of music.” The LP, which is expected to drop mid-2015, is shaping up to be a blockbuster.  More »

Diplo, Skrillex and Kiesza throw a major, dance-filled party in their video for “Take You There.” The single, the first official track from the EDM producers as their music duo Jack Ü, was released back in August. Now, it is accompanied by a energetic black + white visual that finds the three artists performing at various music festivals, like Austin City Limits.

It is also interjected with kooky animated clips and fun dance sequences. Watch the video for “Take You There” up top. More »

Gwen Stefani And Pharrell Williams Are Teaming Up (Again) For ‘Paddington’ Soundtrack Song “Shine”

Gwen Stefani is joined by Pharrell in her wild and zany "Spark The Fire" video. Check it out.

Gwen Stefani‘s music comeback continues to gain momentum with news that she recorded a new song called “Shine” for the Paddington soundtrack with frequent collaborator Pharrell. “What a wonderful opportunity, as a parent, to contribute to something as classic, authentic and generational to all of our lives, as Paddington Bear,” the “Happy” hitmaker declared. The track is likely to be a US exclusive given that the film opened in the UK this week without it.

While we wait for “Shine” to drop, make sure you check out the duo’s other collaboration “Spark The Fire”. The zany hip-hop/pop anthem surfaced online over the weekend and Gwen teased the video during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday (November 24). It’s nice to see the veteran diva is getting in some early promo. “Baby Don’t Lie” would have performed a lot better if it was supported by a couple of interviews and live performances. More »

It’s that time of year! Time to break out your copy of Kelly Clarkson‘s Wrapped In Red, that is.

Our original American Idol is giving us a little bit more to love this Christmas season with her brand new video for “Wrapped In Red,” the title track from her critically acclaimed 2013 holiday record, which was recently re-issued as a CD/DVD for this year.

The vintage-looking clip, which was shot earlier this year, combines grainy footage from Clarkson Christmases past with shots of the powerhouse singer crooning behind old-timey microphones, looking like the classic diva she is. The Christmas lights and snowflakes twinkling ’round her also help to serve up the holiday spirit. Check out the video over at Amazon, and let us know what you think in the comments below. More »

K. Michelle's Sexiest Instagram Pics
K. Michelle's eye-popping pics make Instagram a much, much sexier place.

K. Michelle can now add marketing genius to her resume. The sexy R&B diva is giving fans a signed, nude poster if you order Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? (due December 9) from her website. She sits on a bed in the mostly black-and-white pic with only a bunch of strategically-placed red roses for coverage. (I really hope they got rid of the thorns). You better hurry because there’s only a limited number of posters and they are sure to go fast.

Apart from revolutionizing music promo, the 30-year-old bombshell dropped another brilliant buzz track called “Going Under” yesterday (November 24) and starred in Rick Ross‘ “If They Knew” video. She plays Teflon Don’s mistress in the clip and wears a sexy gold swimsuit. As expected, things get real when Rozay’s wife finds out. The Timbaland-produced collaboration is the latest single from the rapper’s Hood Billionaire LP. Watch it after the jump. More »

Little Boots’ “Pretty Tough” & “Heroine”: Listen To The New ‘Business Pleasure’ Songs

The UK singer skewers our additions to beauty, fame and all that's bad for you.

Still feeling a tad creeped-out by Little Boots‘ thought-provoking “Taste It” video? A good remedy for that might be two new songs from the British singer’s upcoming Business Pleasure EP: “Pretty Tough” and “Heroine.” The former is a slow-burning synth jam that sounds like moody music lifted from John Carpenter‘s cinematic ouvre, while the latter is a throwback house track that picks up where Little Boots’ astounding 2012 single “Every Night I Say A Prayer” left off.

Give both Business Pleasure cuts a listen below ahead of the EP’s release next week. More »

Well, it was fun while it lasted! Prince has become a secret enigma once again, as he has deleted his Twitter and Facebook accounts. The musician also deleted the most recent videos uploaded to his Vevo, save for a brief interview,  “Breakfast Can Wait” audio and behind-the-scenes clips.

Just two weeks ago, Prince posted his first (and totally awesome) selfie on Facebook — which left us excited for more surprise candids. But unfortunately, it may never happen again. There is no current explanation to the move, but maybe it means that another musical era is nearMore »

Jordin Sparksrelationship with Jason Derulo may be over, but that’s not stopping her from recording tunes about him. But don’t get it confused — this one is not a love song! Sparks remixes Drake‘s “How Bout Now,” and spills some truth tea about her former man over the tense hip-hop production.

It even includes the revealing and shady line: “Remember when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for ya?” “How Bout Now” is off Jordin Sparks’ mixtape, appropriately titled #ByeFelicia (yes, there is a hashtag). It is set to be released this afternoon.
