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 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 »
Fat Joe and Jennifer Lopez show off their assets (including J. Lo’s famously immaculate ass-et) in the most extravagant way possible, for the rapper’s video for “Stressin’.” The frequent collaborators and fellow Bronx natives get super turnt up in a NYC club, as they pop bottles, flash their expensive jewelry and dance on tabletops. It’s the perfect video to kick off your party-filled weekend!
“Stressin’,” produced by Rico Love, is the first single off Fat Joe’s forthcoming as-yet-titled 11th studio album. Watch the “no phucks given”-themed video up top. More »
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 »
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 »
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 »
Taylor Swift is full of surprises this week, and her latest is a kitten-filled delight. After premiering 1989 track “Out Of The Woods” as a buzz single on Tuesday, the country-turned-pop force appears in a brand new Diet Coke ad along with her cat Olivia and basically an army of other felines. And for those of you who can’t wait for the October 27 release of Taylor’s new album (surely there are a few?), you can hear a clip of brand new song in the commercial.
Watch Swift and her pussies above. More »
Despite the name, Ugly Kids Club are making real pretty pop.
The rising Nashville synth-pop duo — made up of singer Aliegh Shields and Grammy Award-nominated rock producer Steve Wilson (The Juliana Theory, Jonezetta) — first got together back in 2011 through a mutual friend (Aliegh’s brother), sharing a love for acts like Sleigh Bells and The Kills. And while the partnership started as work on Aliegh’s solo music, the two soon began forging a sound together as a duo, in what would eventually become The Ugly Kids Club.
Following the release of their self-titled EP back in 2012, the troupe returned last month with the Head Games EP, a second collection of rock-tinged, fiercely catchy electronic pop cuts, bringing acts like Chvrches to mind. And today, we’re bringing you the video premiere of the EP’s lush title track, “Head Games.” More »
Miriam Bryant is one of those brilliant Scandinavian divas (there’s a flock of them) that have been threatening to break big for while now. The 23-year-old came close a couple of times — Zedd collaboration “Push Play” was, at one point, going to be the follow up to “Clarity” — but she might have more luck with heady electro-pop single “Dragon”.
The Swede dropped the video for her Game Of Thrones-evoking anthem today (October 15) but sadly there’s no dragon in sight. You see its shadow at the end but my dreams of seeing Miriam on the back of a flaming CGI beast were dashed. Oh well. There’s still a lot to love about the visual. For starters, the rising pop star runs through a field and looks really gorgeous. That’s enough, right? More »
Melanie Martinez‘s dreamy/nightmarish pop anthem “Carousel” found a whole new audience when it was chosen to soundtrack previews of American Horror Story: Freak Show. The spellbinding ditty, which can be found on the 19-year-old’s excellent debut EP Dollhouse, has slowly been gaining ground on iTunes and now gets a suitably spooky video.
The striking visual finds our bow-wearing heroine enjoying the rides at a carnival. Melanie, who first came to fame on season three of The Voice, then meets a hottie and things get kind of weird. She starts floating like a balloon and ends up bound at the wrists on a carousel. The newcomer also blows neon-colored chunks. (The exact same thing happened to me at Six Flags). Watch up top. More »
