Kylie Minogue’s “Sexercize” Video Teases: Watch Two Clips

We give our two cents on Minogue's latest album. Read More »

Kylie Minogue has always been the queen of playful innuendo. But with Sia-penned Kiss Me Once track “Sexercize,” subtlety flies out the window and lyrics like “stretch it out, baby” and “tomorrow you’ll be sore” hit like a lust-charged jackhammer.

And so here we are with two short teases of what’s looking like a full video for “Sexercize,” one (below) via NOWNESS — directed by Oscar nominated director/screenwriter Roman Coppola, who collaborated with the Chandelier Creative agency to pay “homage to Kenneth Anger’s 1965 short Kustom Kar Kommandos” for “just one facet of an ambitious multimedia hub” — and one (also below) that was posted to Kylie’s own Instagram earlier today. The full clip is due to premiere tomorrow (March 19).

We will note that NOWNESS also refers to Minogue’s “Sexercize” as “the latest single from her 12th studio album, Kiss Me Once.” More »

We sat down for a chat with Aussie superstar Guy Sebastian. Read More »

Guy Sebastian experiments with EDM on catchy new single “Like A Drum” but the Aussie superstar proved the song can (more than) stand on its own without the soaring synths and thunderous beats when he performed a brilliant acoustic version for us at Nightbird Studios in Los Angeles.

Accompanied by only a guitar, Guy dusts off the powerful pipes that made Lupe Fiasco collaboration “Battle Scars” a platinum-selling hit in 2012. This is a vocal tour de force. The 32-year-old makes “Like A Drum” shine in a completely different light while showcasing his incredible versatility. Hopefully, we get an official acoustic version somewhere down the track because this is really, really good. Watch up top. More »

Zedd’s “Find You” Video Is A Special Effects-Filled Roller Coaster Ride: Watch

Mar 17th, 2014 // Comment
An Epic Love Story

Zedd‘s “Find You” is one of the many great songs housed on the Divergent soundtrack and today (March 17) it gets a suitably epic, special effects-filled video. Featuring the vocals of Swedish songstress Miriam Bryant and “Clarity” songwriter Matthew Koma, the EDM duet is, at its core, a simple love song and that is reflected in the dazzling visual.

After beginning like a fairly generic dance video (pretty girls, a rave and cameos by Zedd, Miriam and Matthew), things soon take a twist when our heroine finds a love interest and is then chased by a flock of birds through a snow covered landscape and descends into a giant tree trunk. There’s also a magical bath tub and some rather obvious product placement. Watch up top. More »

This is truly the luckiest St. Patrick’s Day ever, because Autotune goddess/porn icon/mother of the year Farrah Abraham has blessed your ears and mine with new music. Behold, the video for “Blowin”, a song so in touch with modern technology and hot ‘n’ trendy social media platforms that it features the sextape icon “singing” from the profile pic box on her Twitter and Facebook pages; so family-oriented that it shows the loving mom giving her daughter tender pecks with her famous mouth; so high-concept that the wild club she’s twirling in with her pals doesn’t look like her dad’s living room at all.

"Drunk In Love" gets a brilliant emoji video. Read More »

Well whaddya know, we have yet another trend that was kickstarted by a Beyonce song. OK well maybe it’s not a trend yet, because this is only the second one and it’s by the same guy, but still. After Vimeo user Jesse Hill made a “Drunk In Love” emoji video, he has struck again, giving Rick RossMastermind standout “Sanctified” a similar treatment. The Kanye West- and Big Sean-assisted track is basically the embodiment of praise hands, and yes, the finger-in-hole and eggplant emojis are again used for sex stuff.

But dude has stepped his game up, timing the smileys so they look like they’re singing that gospel interlude. Check it out up top. More »

Rita Ora Invites Us Behind The Scenes Of “I Will Never Let You Down”: Watch

Mar 14th, 2014 // Comment
She's In A Good Place

The wait for Rita Ora‘s tantalizingly good (from the preview at least) Calvin Harris-produced comeback single “I Will Never Let You Down” is almost over. The Kosovan-born diva opened up about her new anthem while filming the video, calling it “a good energetic love song”.

The 23-year-old positively beams while talking about the track. She declares that she’s in a good place at the moment — waking up next to Calvin isn’t exactly a chore — and wants her fans to feel similarly happy and uplifted while listening to her music. As for the video? Rita doesn’t give away too much. She looks stunning (a given) and rocks some edgy outfits. Watch up top. More »

Jennifer Lopez’s “I Luh Ya Papi” Video: Watch Lots Of Shirtless Men & Their NSFW Naked Butts

Mar 14th, 2014 // 3 Comments
JLo Turns The Tables

No, Jennifer Lopez doe not want to shoot her new video at the zoo. Nor is JLo feeling a water park as a setting. Instead, Jenny From The Block and her gal pals would like to switch things up from the usual video vixen route and have scantily-clad men parade through the “I Luh Ya Papi” visual, for a change.

This strong-willed trio get their way, as a parade of shirtless men in tight swimwear lay sprawled out on a yacht, bump and grind on the girls and show get their trunks pulled down so the ladies can ogle their naked booties.

French Montana drops in for his brief rap, then it’s back to himbo city. Get a load of this saucy trash above. More »

Two Dudes From Pentatonix Cover Beyonce’s Entire ‘Visual Album’ In Under Six Minutes: Watch

Mar 13th, 2014 // Comment
So Many Memes, So Little Time

Covering a Beyonce song is a daunting task for any artist (how are you going to improve on perfection?) but covering an entire LP is unheard of. Until now. Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying from a cappella group Pentatonix condensed Queen Bey’s visual album into a sprawling six minute song and it’s mind-blowing.

There’s so much to love here. Mitch and Scott obviously have amazing voices — their group won NBC’s The Sing-Off, after all — but their attention to detail is staggering. The way they capture Beyonce’s multi-layered sound without instruments is incredible, let alone their ability to do justice to her gorgeous genre-hopping LP. Oh and they even have Bey’s “serfboart” refrain down pat! Watch in awe up top. More »

Vanessa Hudgens (And Friends) Dance To Beyonce’s “Yonce” And Nail It: Watch

Mar 13th, 2014 // Comment
Just Take Aim

It’s time for Vanessa Hudgens to return to music. Sure, she occasionally performs with girl group YLA but pop needs more tunes like “Come Back To Me” and “Party On The Moon”. Hell, I’d even take another “Sneakernight”! The second coming of the good-girl-gone-bad would be doubly exciting because she’s learned how to dance. Extremely well.

Need proof? The High School Musical actress obviously had some time on her hands recently and rounded up some of her friends to make a dance video soundtracked by Beyonce‘s rap interlude “Yonce”. Vanessa kills Michelle Jersey Maniscalco‘s sexy choreography and reminds everyone that she was the original wild child of the Disney set. Watch up top. More »

Somehow SZA‘s new song/video “Babylon” has been around for almost a week and we haven’t talked about it yet, so we’re going to rectify that right quick. The track is off her just-announced EP (out April 8), her first release as a part of TDE. Her ethereal coos are paired with a brain-melting beat care of DJ Dahi, and right now, it’s this one vs. Bok Bok‘s “Melba’s Call” for trippiest R&B beat of 2014, as far as I’m concerned.

As for the video, it finds SZA stripping down and removing all her wares before wading into a lake. The singer co-directed it with APLUS.FILMZ, and as a bonus, there’s a snippet of another new track called “U R” at the top of the clip, which is produced by the shockingly-legit-now Mac Miller.

Check out the video up top, and head below for the EP cover artwork. More »
