Kylie Minogue is aging in reverse. The gorgeous 46-year-old looks absolutely stunning on the cover of GQ Italy in a tiny bikini. What kind of Jennifer Lopez sorcery? “It’s summertime!!” is all the pop icon had to say about the sexy snap when she posted it on Instagram this afternoon (July 28) and there’s not much else to say but WOW.
The “Into The Blue” diva recently wrapped up mentoring duties on The Voice Australia and can now return her focus to Kiss Me Once, which she will support with a world tour beginning August 22 in Ibiza, Spain. Cutfather-produced pop anthem “Sexy Love” was recently sent to radio down under but there’s still no word on the album’s next single internationally. Salivate over her GQ cover after the jump. More »
At a time when every pop star with an internet connection is posting nudes, it didn’t seem terribly far-fetched that Liam Payne would share a full-frontal pic on Instagram. The One Direction heartthrob posed seemingly naked on a luxury yacht with only pixelated squares covering his manhood. “Damn that was my last pair!” he captioned the cheeky snap.
It didn’t take long for Directioners to lose their shit with outbreaks of crying and shaking reported across the internet. Liam then spoiled everyone’s fun by posting the original pic, which reveals that he was in fact wearing swimming trunks. “Oh I found them never mind aha,” he wrote, ruthlessly crushing teenage dreams. See both of the Brit’s almost-nude pics after the jump. More »
Robyn and Royksopp are currently out on the road (again!) on their Do It Again Tour, entertaining fans all across the world. They’ve also recently premiered the dramatic visual for their EP title track “Do It Again,” as well as hitting the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live to give the US a taste of what they’re bringing to the table when they return in August.
Now, the Scandi superstars are aiming for continued dance floor dominance with a brand new remix of their EP title track, crafted by Dave Aude. The blazing uptempo re-rub packs some major electronic heat into the original production, perfect for a sweaty summer outdoor rave.
Give the recently premiered remix a spin after the jump, and let us know if you’ll be catching the two acts out on tour next month. More »
With the recent premiere of her dazzling single “Two Weeks,” and the release of her highly-anticipated debut album LP1 just around the corner, British soulstress FKA Twigs — real name Tahliah Barnett — is everyone’s new up-and-coming artist to watch. While she might be considered a newcomer, FKA Twigs is actually a music-biz veteran, revealing that she was, in fact, a back-up dancer in her latest track “Video Girl.”
Featured in visuals for Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, Taio Cruz, and, most notably, in Jessie J’s “Price Tag” and “Do It Like A Dude,” FKA Twigs addresses her past in this very raw and slightly heartbreaking new track. As synthy layers and Tahliah’s gentle vocals wind throughout song, it seems that the singer is not just ready for a new start as an artist, but she simply craves it. More »
House producer SecondCity (aka Rowman Harrington) was was born in Chicago, but his family emigrated to England when he was a young kid. In early June, Harrington topped the UK chart with club cut “I Wanna Feel,” which borrows vocals from Toni Braxton‘s 1996 hit “You’re Makin’ Me High.” For his follow-up floorfiller “What Can I Do,” however, SecondCity has opted for original vocals by Ali Love, a singer who previously appeared on The Chemical Brothers‘ “Do It Again,” among other tracks. Got all that? Good.
Now, sure, there are quite a lot of house anthems floating around the airwaves these days. But when they’re good enough to get our toes tapping at 4:50 p.m. on a Monday afternoon, there’s always room for another on our summer playlist.
Give “What Can I Do” a listen below. More »
Christina Perri is best-known for her emotional ballads (“Jar Of Hearts” and “A Thousand Years”) but the 27-year-old isn’t afraid to raise the tempo occasionally as she proves on new Head Or Heart single “Burning Gold”. The singer/songwriter performed the irresistible toe-tapper on the Today Show this morning (July 28) and even showed off a new look.
The “Human” diva is almost unrecognizable with her sleek, straightened hair but there’s no mistaking that voice. Christina delivered the goods vocally (as usual) and did her best to rev up the crowd with an energetic performance. “Burning Gold” has radio hit written all over it, so expect to hear a lot more of the Butch Walker-produced anthem. Watch up top. More »
