FKA Twigs partnered up with Google Glass to create a visual concept mini-film, titled “#throughglass.” In the two-minute clip set to re-recorded versions of “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron,” the singer shows off her slinky choreography using the glasses to search for dance inspirations.

In the video, the singer finds herself confronted with various doppelgängers (gelled baby hairs, thick braids, pouty lips and all) that results in an artistic dance battle. This visual comes after the release of FKA Twigs’ debut album, LP1 (released in August 2014). More »

Bebe Rexha’s “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You (Chainsmokers Remix)” Video: Idolator Premiere

Quench Your Thirst

After penning monster hits (literally) for other artists, Bebe Rexha is about to wreak some chart damage of her own with killer debut single “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You”. The soaring electro-pop anthem has been warmly embraced by pop radio and is steadily climbing iTunes. It’s also getting a lot of love in clubs thanks to an epic remix by The Chainsmokers.

The NYC duo, who dropped unavoidable floorfiller “#Selfie” earlier this year, sure know how to turn a pop song into perfect club fodder. (See their remixes of Chromeo‘s “Jealous” and Bastille‘s “Flaws” for further evidence). Their balls-to-the-wall overhaul now gets a dramatic, neon light-drenched video that gives you a whole new appreciation for Bebe’s breakthrough hit. Start your week off right by watching it up top.

Real & True

Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne team up again in the video for “Real Love.” The visual is an ode to – what else? – couples who are madly in love. Jack Patterson, the video’s director, keeps it simple as Glynne and Clean Bandit perform the song in a stark recording studio. But soon as the chorus kicks in, the performers transport to a brightly-lit stage at the Los Angeles’ El Rey theater. Throughout the video, various couples show their adoring affection towards each other.

“Real Love” is the latest single from the UK electronic-pop band‘s upcoming re-release of their debut album New Eyes. They previously collaborated with Jess Glynne for the summer smash, “Rather Be.”  More »

Ariana Grande’s “Love Me Harder” Lyric Video: Watch

Love Me Harder

Ariana Grande has debuted her “Love Me Harder” lyric video – essentially, an extended behind-the-scenes peek into the actual video to come.

Like her teasers so far, the hazy footage shows the My Everything star dressed in a lace bralet top and skirt, casting knowing glances at the camera from an antique bed and seat. Aside from when she meets featured vocalist The Weeknd in a stairwell, the “Love Me Harder” lyric video bears a striking resemblance to a standard Victoria’s Secret commercial. More »

Jessie J Brings ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Audience To Their Feet With A Killer Mash Of “Bang Bang” And “Burnin’ Up”: Watch

Red Hot

Jessie J has delivered a string of brilliant performances during her promo blitzkrieg for new LP Sweet Talker but today’s (October 17) appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show was her best yet. The fiery Brit looked incredible in her purple satin pantsuit and got the party started with a solo version of Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj-assisted summer smash “Bang Bang”.

That segued into a positively euphoric rendition of Ricky Reed/Axident-produced club-banger “Burnin’ Up”. It didn’t take a lot of encouragement for the crowd to jump to their feet and start clapping along. Jessie’s new single is quickly climbing iTunes — it’s already top 40 — and looks set to be another huge hit. Watch her energetic performance up top. More »

Ferras’ “Speak In Tongues” Video: Watch The Black + White Clip

Take It To Church

Earlier this month, Ferras spoke to us about the upcoming visual for “Speak In Tongues” – the new single off his self-titled EP (released on June 17). He said, “I felt [a video] was a good way to wrap up the EP. Rather than go to radio with the single, kind of have something to show for the EP.”

Fast forward to present day, and the official video has now arrived. The black and white clip finds the singer in a church, as he confesses his sins and sits on a snake-wrapped throne. Ferras is the first artist signed to Metamorphosis Music - Katy Perry‘s new record label. The two friends have collaborated together on the power ballad, “Legends Never Die.” More »

Flight Facilities & Kylie Minogue’s “Crave You”: Watch The Fuzzy Video

kylie minogue x crave you

After news broke out yesterday (October 16) that Kylie Minogue is featured on a reprise of Flight Facilities‘ 2010 breakthrough “Crave You,” the Australian dance duo has now released a teaser video for the single.

The shaky, ominous clip finds Minogue on top of a bed in a messy bedroom, as she begins to sing the opening verse a capella-style. Once the camera creeps near to the singer’s face, the video then goes completely fuzzy – sort of like an old television from the ’80s that has a broken antenna.

“Crave You” is off Flight Facilities’ debut LP, Down To Earth, is set for an October 24 release. As for Minogue, the diva is currently performing on her Kiss Me Once tour. More »

Fergie’s “L.A. Love (La La)” Gets A Lyric Video: Watch

Fergie L.A. Love
Fergie Flashback!

L.A., are the people saying la la la la la over there? Kingston? Miami? Stockholm? How about you guys? Yes? No?

In any case, Fergie Ferg’s long-awaited comeback track, “L.A. Love (La La),” which first premiered at the tail-end of September, just got suited up with a lyric video — and it’s a total #FlashbackFriday moment.

Sitting down in front of a scrapbook, Fergie flips through pages upon pages of classic memories and milestones from her career — from g-l-a-m-o-r-o-u-s photo shoots to live performanes to “London Bridge” promo photos — as well as tons of user-submitted photos of fans flipping the “LA” hand sign at the camera. The clip is cute and, if anything, a nice, nostalgic re-introduction to The Dutchess. More »
