In lieu of his soon to be released EP Mabel, up-and-coming UK producer Lil Silva has put out both the title track of the EP as well as synthy number “First Mark” to gear people up for what’s in store. Now, the bedroom beatsmith is back with “Don’t You Love,” and this time around, he’s working with recurring collaborator and our favorite LA soulstress-on-the-rise BANKS.

Having produced her Goddess title track, Lil Silva and BANKS wrote two songs together for Mabel. The first, ”Don’t You Love” is a slow burner that builds carefully and meticulously. Poignant and delicate, the track progresses as Lil Silva’s own fluid vocals seep through followed by BANKS’ gentle croons. While their voices aren’t meant to be the focal point, they’ll still  have you humming “Don’t you lo-o-o-ve” by the end of it.  Listen to  ”Don’t You Love” below. More »

Lana Del Rey has opted for a grittier, more organic look in most of her magazine pictorials this year — she even took the photos herself for Intro! — but the “Ultraviolence” singer exudes glamor on the cover of Fashion. She rocks a royal blue coat with dazzling gold detail and serves serious model face. It’s like the Born To Die era all over again.

The 29-year-old talks about wanting to settle down and have kids in the accompanying interview. “I would love to find someone I could share my life with and be married to,” Lana reveals. “I would love children, too. Hopefully they’re not as bad as I am.” She also talks about the usual stuff (her struggle with fame and success) but it’s nice to discover a softer side to pop’s darkest diva.

It hasn’t even been a full week since UK powerhouse songstress Jessie J‘s “Bang Bang” with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj was  released, and the song has already conquered iTunes. With a chorus that catchy, Jessie and Ariana’s glorious belts, and Nicki’s menacing rap verse, how could it not?

The funky hit is officially in full circulation, and Jessie gave a first-ever performance of the tune on Elvis Duran‘s Z100 Morning Show this week. To put things into perspective, she completely knocked it out of the park. Not only did the performance feel effortless, but the track itself sounds as infectious acoustic as it does on the studio version. So, a big gold star to you, Jessie — this was a flawless performance, indeed. Watch the video up above. More »

Vin Diesel Sings Sam Smith’s “Stay” Rather Nicely: Watch

Regardless of what possessed Hollywood musclehead Vin Diesel to croon Rihanna‘s “Stay” and dance all seductive-like in front of a camera to Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” and Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” earlier this year, the Guardians Of The Galaxy actor now has quite the reputation for being up on all things pop music. Hence him being asked during an interview with London’s Capital FM to sing Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me” on the spot.

Granted, the interviewer did give him a laptop with the song’s lyrics. And despite Diesel’s faux protests at first of not being up on the song, he appeared to catch on pretty quick once it began playing. All in all, Vin was a great sport, and, you know, actually didn’t sound too shabby. What a Renaissance Man. More »

Calling all Harmonizers: Fifth Harmony‘s got a special mission for you.

Right now, the fab fivesome is going strong (and c-o-n-f-i-d-e-n-t) with “BO$$,” the ‘tude-heavy, empowering lead single from their long-awaited forthcoming LP, due out this fall. (Did you catch the girls performing the track live in our studio, along with new album track “We Know”?)

Ahead of the 2014 MTV VMAs (where they’re nominated for Artist To Watch!), the girls are asking you to help reveal the cover art for their upcoming album. Want to help make it happen? Head to Tweematic. After voting for the girls at the MTV VMAs, you’ll have the opportunity to share to unlock the cover. (Currently, it’s hanging tight at a very pixelated 8% of the reveal, seen above.)

Will you be helping to unlock 5H’s album cover? Let us know what you hope to hear from the girls’ debut effort in the comments below. More »

If Katy Perry was going for a dazzling, eye-popping colorgasm with her video for “This Is How We Do,” the fifth single released off Prism, then she can stamp “accomplished” across this particular mission. The visual for the party-vibe pop jam features Rolling Stone cover girl Katy and a pair of her girlfriends tearing through hair colors and ’80s-leaning outfits as they strut and twirl through a series of vivid, computer-generated backgrounds. They’ve also got a crew of handsome male dancers on hand to serve them popsicles and assemble a Maserati. Convenient Perry!

Did we mention that there’s a (pretty realistic) Mariah Carey impersonator? Or a twerking ice cream cone?! Good God — watch above! More »
