The song itself doesn’t bring nearly as much fire as the video does, but we’ll give Azealia a gold star for overall effort here. More »

Stopping by DJ Whoo Kids’s The Whoolywood Shuffle radio show on Sirius XM’s’ Shade 45, Chris not only gave his two cents about the Orlando Bloom/Biebs brawl, but also spoke about his music background and the ole days of 2001 when he lived out of a van with his friend in Maui, smoked a lot of weed and listened to Dre’s sophomore LP, 2001. Chris then goes on to immaculately recite Eminem’s verses like he’s been waiting for this exact moment his entire life. Who knew that this guy has ridiculous flow?

That’s right: The Eleutheromaniac diva’s cleaning up shop and ditching all of her old trinkets and memories, and she’s enlisted a bunch of her pals to help pack it all up, tape it down and, when all else fails, toss s–t right out the window.
The colorful trailer park romp sees the diva taking out the trash (in the form of an un undesirable, duct taped dude), breaking it down on the street with her neighbors, swinging from a swing made of recyclables and luxuriously floating across a trash-strewn pool while getting coated in colorful dyes, Color Run style. Hell, there’s even some choreography! I don’t remember yard sales ever being this much fun. Clearly, I’ve been doing it all wrong.
If there was any question whether or not Neon’s newly independent status as a pop starlet were a cause for celebration, this should put an end to that doubt. Dive in up top, and let us know what you think the comments below. More »
The guys take very different approaches to finding summer lovin’. David is content to sit by car and wait for a hottie to pass by, while Carter literally runs after a blond bombshell he spots on the beach. “Pretty Lady (Around Me)” is one of three videos the hip-hop act filmed simultaneously. “Whatever We Want” dropped last month, while “I’m With It” is still in the works. Watch their latest up top. More »
Like last year‘s show, Drake brought out a multitude of special guests during his headlining set last night at the Molson Amiptheater in Toronto, including Usher, Lauryn Hill,Trey Songz, YG, DJ Khaled, PartyNextDoor, and even our girl Tinashe, who came out to get “2 On” with Drizzy.
Before each act, Drake supplied glowing praise for each of his superstar guests. “I want to bring people to you that changed all of our lives and shaped my career,” he hyped before introducing 50 Cent. “This is probably going to be one of the best moments in OVO Fest history,” he gushed before Usher arrived to the stage to croon “Climax.” As an added bonus, Drake even hopped back out for a quick dance battle with the Confessions king!
Watch some of the highlights from OVO Fest after the jump, including the Drizzy-Ursher dance-off. More »
The Stromberg brothers do a good job of flipping the song around without destroying its positive message. So instead of a woman embracing her size, Wesley and Keaton are expressing their appreciation for natural-looking ladies. Emblem3′s version will no doubt help Meghan’s seemingly inevitable climb to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and it’s a potent reminder that there’s more to the band than “Chloe”. Watch their impressive cover up top. More »
The Emil Nava-directed visual for Ed’s latest X single follows a talented dancer as he strangely contorts, bends and twists his way from rags to riches, going door to door and messing with hearts along the way. As for Ed? He’s here too, briefly, in a drive-by cameo, but the attention is mostly on a series of strangers. The narrative could be interpreted in a number of ways (as evidenced by the ongoing discussions in the video’s comment section), but it all seems to connect back to some of Sheeran’s more popular song themes — fame, fortune and broken relationships.
But perhaps even more obvious? The impact of Sia‘s mesmerizingly strange “Chandelier” video is now clearly being felt within the industry.

Watch above as the title character, a girl with “red, red hair and almond eyes,” spends her days swimming and doing mundane tasks like painting her nails before taking on her work duties as an exotic dancer by nightfall. More »
Produced by ex-husband and The Lion And The Cobra collaborator John Reynolds, “Take Me To Church” finds Sinead coming to terms with her past and embracing the here and now. (It’s also her catchiest pop single in many, many years). The video is an unexpectedly joyous walk down memory lane with the 47-year-old performing under a projection of her iconic “Nothing Compares 2 U” visual before rocking out with her band. Also, the scene where she rips off her wig is the best thing I’ve seen today. Watch up top. More »
That certainly fits in with Keyshia’s explanation of the song. “It’s about self love to me, and going through my divorce, you have to give yourself a little self love because you’re used to somebody being there every night and they’re not,” she revealed in a radio interview. “She” is the third cut from the singer’s sixth studio album Point Of No Return due later this year.
