There’s no stopping 5 Seconds Of Summer! The Australian foursome went straight to number one on the Billboard 200 with their self-titled debut album and scored their biggest hit yet with emotional break-up anthem “Amnesia” over the summer. The guys are now promoting pop/rock gem “Good Girls”, which boasts one of the year’s kookiest and spookiest videos.
Michael, Luke, Calum and Ashton dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (November 6) to perform the sing-a-long rock song and turned the audience into a heaving mosh pit. Girls (and middle-aged women alike) pushed towards the stage to get a little closer to their idols, who delivered a typically tight rendition of their latest smash. Watch up top. More »
Budding Toronto rapper P. Reign and his OVO labelmate Drake kick back on a lush beach in the video for “DnF.” The visual, set on the tropical island of St. Marteen, finds the two bachelors on vacation as they drink beer and dream about sexy ladies. Future is also featured on the song, but he’s nowhere to be found in the video.
“DnF” (or “Drunk n Fuck”) is the latest single off P. Reign’s EP, Dear America (released on September 2). As for Drake, he recently dropped three new songs to keep fans riled up for his upcoming fourth LP — Views From The 6. The album is set to be released in Spring 2015, or so the singer/rapper promises. More »
Sorry to steal your thunder, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and all you lesser pop dolls, but the TRUE QUEEN OF EVERYTHING is back, and her golden pipes are just what we needed to hear in this bleak year of pop that is 2014.
That’s right, Meryl Streep‘s turn as The Witch in Disney’s big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine‘s 1987 Broadway smash Into The Woods has the multiple Oscar winner putting her flawless vocals on full display — and in the brand new trailer for the film, we get to hear her sweet chirping and watch her evil witchiness.

Following her performance at the Country Music Awards last night, American Idol alum-turned-bonafide country superstar Carrie Underwood has just dropped the visual for her latest single, “Something In The Water” and, appropriately, there’s a whole lot of…water. (What? Were you expecting fire?)
Dressed in a super glam gown (as well as a translucent rain jacket later on), Carrie stands belting out her tune in ankle-deep water as pairs of dancers twirl and splash around her. She stays mostly dry, up until the end, as she lays in the water alongside the dancers for some more heartfelt crooning. The choreography is particularly striking (as is Carrie, of course) — it’s all a very powerful and beautiful visual for an equally powerhouse track.
Watch the video for Carrie’s “Something In The Water” after the jump, and let us know what you think in the comments below. More »
We’ve known about her “secret project” for months, and after many, many weeks of teasing, Stars Dance diva Selena Gomez has finally returned with the first taste of new music from her forthcoming greatest hits compilations, For You (out November 24) — and it packs one hell of an emotional punch.
Kicking off with a quivering voice recording, the track seems to chronicle Selena’s notoriously rocky on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, crooning sadly above a slow tripping, finger snapping beat. (Gone is any trace of the EDM that colored Stars Dance!) “There’s a million reasons why I should give you up…but the heart wants what it wants,” she sings along the chorus. The accompanying video sees Selena cuddling up with a beau, looking conflicted and emotionally tearing up in front of the camera. This is a more mature, more vulnerable Selena than ever before — it’ll be interesting to see the response (and read all the relationship conspiracy theories), to say the least. Watch the video up top. More »
Lorde is back in full force with the Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack, which she curated and also contributed four songs to. And as she teased yesterday with stills from her “Yellow Flicker Beat” video, she’s also got a new ‘do to go along with the new music!
The video is finally here, and, okay — it’s really Lorde’s same old hair. Only in several scenes, including one where the 17-year-old Grammy winner dances feverishly in the neon-lit glow of a motel room, she’s got her locks all pulled up, Florence Welch-style. More »
Neon Jungle highlight their fun relationship with their fans in the video for “Can’t Stop The Love.” The visual is basically a string of footage submitted by the ladies’ supporters intercut with them singing the tune. Oh, the clip also features Australian-American rapper Snob Scrilla.
“Can’t Stop The Love” is the fifth single from Neon Jungle’s debut album Welcome To The Jungle (released in July 2014). The LP features songs like “Welcome To The Jungle,” “Braveheart,” “Louder” and “Trouble.” More »
Lana Del Rey works in mysterious ways. Promotion for her amazing Ultraviolence LP has seemingly ground to halt (apart from that unforgettable stint at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever cemetery) but she just dropped an official remix video for Maleficent theme song “Once Upon A Dream” — months after the box office smash finished its run in theaters.
At least the remix in question is a menacing masterpiece. Young Ruffian‘s dreamy/nightmarish overhaul has racked up almost one million streams on SoundCloud and is generally accepted to have achieved the impossible by making Lana’s eerie cover even spookier with a cacophony of sinister bleeps and beeps. Watch the video, which features footage from the Angelina Jolie-starring blockbuster, up top. More »
If you’ve been online in the last 24 hours, you’ve probably been assaulted by click-baiting headlines insinuating that Iggy Azalea accidentally flashed her vagina at a bar mitzvah. The truth is much less salacious. The rap diva’s pants split — I’m surprised it hasn’t happened before now given her gravity-defying curves — but she went right on singing and dancing. Because realness.
Apart from suffering a wardrobe malfunction and slaying Halloween with her White Chicks ensemble, Iggy has been gearing up for the re-release of The New Classic (now called Reclassified) on November 24. (The same day Beyonce reissues her visual album!) The femcee’s next move? Releasing a video for MØ-assisted smash “Beg For It”. While we wait for that opus, check out her legendary bar mitzvah moment after the jump. More »
Pentatonix have had a lock on Christmas since 2012, when they released their hit holiday-themed EP PTXmas. The vocal group sensation returned in October with even more yuletide fare via their album That’s Christmas To Me, which contains, among 10 other festive tracks, a mash-up of the standard “Winter Wonderland” with Bobby McFerrin‘s jazzy 1988 chart-topper “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” Why those two songs? Oh, why not.
Joining the quintet on that meeting of the tunes is “Dear No One” singer Tori Kelly, who also appears in Pentatonix’s Brady Bunch-like, sweater-filled video for the mash-up. Get in the holiday spirit above. More »
