Katy Tiz landed her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 last month with a smoky cover of Rock Mafia‘s “The Big Bang”. You’re sure to see and hear a lot more from the British babe when her video drops (any day now) but, in the meantime, here’s a lovely acoustic mash-up of Blackstreet‘s “No Diggity” and Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me A River” to tide you over.

The best thing about this performance (apart from Katy’s fetching red bandana) is that it showcases the full versatility of her powerful pipes. “The Big Bang” finally showed what the blonde bombshell is capable of vocally after releasing a handful of less challenging electro-pop singles but this mini-medley highlights a surprisingly soulful quality.

“We’re only in our twenties once,” Hilary Duff says, in a trailer for TV Land’s Younger. After winning over viewers as a clumsy but lovable preteen in Lizzie McGuire, Duff returns to TV as a smart-talking co-worker who has no idea what’s going on.

Younger‘s premise reads somewhat like 1999′s Never Been Kissed: Broadway star Sutton Foster as a single 40-year-old mom who pretends to be 26 in order to relaunch her career. Debi Mazar plays Foster’s friend, telling her to go for it – and, in another sneak peek, Duff seems to have no idea. “Before you know it, you’re gonna be in your 40s,” she says.

Younger debuts on TV Land in January. Watch the first trailer up top, then see Duff steal the show in a scene after the jump. More »

In the spring we urged you all to take notice of Danish band Scarlet Pleasure‘s breezy, sultry single “Windy.” (We even included it on our Spring 2014: Hot Imports playlist!) Now the guys have followed that one up with “Under The Palm Trees,” a funky pop song that sounds like it was plucked straight out of 1982.

The feel-good summer track is all about hot kissing, good sex and sweet guitar licks atop thick synth chords — which, let’s face it, is pretty hard to resist, no matter what the season may be. Drift away by watching the Morten Winther-directed lyric video for Scarlet Pleasure’s new single above. More »

Oh, suh-nap! Did Meghan Trainor just throw 2014′s Song Of The Summer race a serious curve ball? It could well be. The super-cute Nashville songwriter is stepping into the realm of pop artist with her debut single “All About That Bass,” and there’s a positive message behind the song: It doesn’t matter what your body type is, as long as you know how to work what you’ve got.

The pastel-pink “All About That Bass” video stars, of course, Meghan and a sassy troupe of dancers who have no trouble flaunting “all the right junk in all the right places.” Also along for the ride in the clip is Vine superstar Sione Maraschino, a guy who has no problem shakin’ it along with the best of the ladies.

Did we read somewhere that Nicki Minaj‘s “Pills N Potions” video, directed by Diane Martel, was supposed to premiere Monday (June 9) evening? It actually didn’t arrive until well after midnight, but no matter — Queen Barb’s latest is here in full, and you can see it above.

What you’ll be watching is Nicki crying tears of what appears to be liquid mercury, hanging out with a shirtless Game and wearing bunny ears while posing rather sullenly. Oh, and she also pulls her boobs out of her shirt at one point, and there are a few obvious product placement scenes (hello, Official Beats Pill and Minajesty By Nicki Minaj perfume), so if you’re into that sort of thing, then you’d better get to watching.

Cheryl Cole’s “Crazy Stupid Love” Video: Watch Her Get Crazy Stupid In The Club

Let’s just get this out in the open: When stacked up with Cheryl Cole‘s previous lead singles from her albums — songs like “Fight For This Love,” “Promise This” and the outstanding, Calvin Harris-produced “Call My Name”“Crazy Stupid Love” is pretty much a sonic dud. I wish there was some way to sugar-coat that for you Cheryl fans out there, but, no, sorry — it’s just not a good single. At all.

The video doesn’t really help matters, as here Cole opts for the tired “werkin’ it in the club” concept. The whole thing feels like when you order pizza for delivery, then 40 minutes later it finally arrives and you’re super starving and so ready to dig into a few slices, but then you flip the box open to find three dead rats piled on top of a sawed-off hooker arm. Don’t you hate when that happens? That’s what this song and its accompanying video are like. Hooker arm. More »

Demi Lovato Glams Up The Vamps’ “Somebody To You” Video: Watch

Jun 9th, 2014 // 1 Comment
I Need To Know Your Lips

Demi Lovato has to be the busiest woman in pop. She barely had time to put away her Neon Lights tour costumes before announcing a completely new live extravaganza for the fall and has not one but two huge summer singles on the way. The 21-year-old filmed part of her “Really Don’t Care” video at LA Pride yesterday (June 8) but already has her cameo in The Vamps‘ “Somebody To You” visual in the can.

The English rockers head to the beach for the summery clip and perform the sing-a-long pop/rock anthem on a makeshift stage in the sand. They also have time for a bit of fun in the sun and brush up their soccer and volleyball skills. Oh and a group of young ladies conveniently appear for them to flirt with. Where’s Demi? Well, she clearly wasn’t available on the same day, so her scenes are a little disjointed. The “Heart Attack” hitmaker just sits around and looks pretty before twirling in some fluttering curtains. Obviously, she steals the show. Watch up top. More »

Nicole Scherzinger Hits The Beach In Super Sexy “Your Love” Video: Watch

Jun 9th, 2014 // Comment
Fun In The Sun

Nicole Scherzinger hasn’t put a foot wrong this era. “Your Love” is a hypnotic ’90s house-infused club banger with an inescapable vocal hook (“do do do do”) and, now, a very appealing visual that finds the former PCD diva taking a stroll along the beach in a variety of skimpy outfits. It’s simple but suits The-Dream/Tricky Stewart-produced jam perfectly.

The video treatment probably read a little something like this: “Nicole looks super hot in a pair of short shorts on a nice beach at sunset”. There’s also a dude breakdancing in the sand but that’s essentially it. However, the concept works because of the 35-year-old’s stunning beauty and the fact that the song screams summer smash — making a fun-in-the-sun visual only fitting. Watch up top. More »

Sir Mix-A-Lot Performs “Baby Got Back” With Seattle Symphony, Causes Twerkpocalypse On Stage: Watch

Sir Mix A Lot Seattle Symphony Baby Got Back 2014 twerking
That's A Lot Of Babies With Back

Sir Mix-A-Lot hit the stage with the Seattle Symphony recently (because why not) for a performance of the original Mack Daddy’s 1992 rap staple “Baby Got Back,” and the YouTube video of this mashing of the musical forces has been viewed over 500,000 times since it was uploaded over the weekend. Why, you ask? It could have something to do with the fact that Sir asked for “a couple of ladies” to get on stage, only to have the invitation taken up by what seemed like half of Seattle’s entire female population.

Mix-A-Lot, composer Gabriel Prokofiev and the symphony then burst into song, causing the women to erupt into a butt-gyrating tornado of scandal. A word to the thick soul sisters…and everyone else out there: You really don’t want to miss watching this hot trash. Enjoy above! More »

At this rate, South Korean rapper PSY is averaging one (hit) single a year. But what does that matter when one of those, “Gangnam Style,” has now garnered 2 billion views on YouTube alone?

Following up with last year’s “Gentleman,” PSY is back in action with brand new buzz single “Hangover.” Maybe we should make that buzzed single? Or just fall-down, sloppy, puke-in-the-gutter drunk. Either way, Snoop Dogg is along for the ride, and the two rappers proceed to get hammered, pick up two middle-aged ladies and go skipping off in an intoxicated stupor down the streets of Korea.

And did I mention the twerking video vixens all throughout this gem? No? Well, watch above. More »
