Ricky Martin Plays Multiple Characters In His Prohibition-Themed “Adios” Video: Watch

Ricky's Back!

What’s better than one Ricky Martin? Five of them, obviously! The Latin heartthrob plays multiple characters in the prohibition-themed video for new single “Adios”. Set in a 1930s speakeasy, the Ethan Ladder-directed visual finds the 42-year-old performing on stage with a bunch of scantily-clad dancers (it’s his very own cabaret) but the real fun comes from his other roles.

There’s the creepy-moustache wearing Ricky that pours drinks behind the bar as well as policeman Ricky, bouncer Ricky and even mobster Ricky! “Adios” is the first single from the superstar’s 10th studio album (due early 2015). It will be his first full release since Musica + Alma + Sexo in 2011. Watch the entertaining video up top and check out the Spanish version after the jump. More »

Play It Cool

Gwen Stefani follows up the release of her comeback single, “Baby Don’t Lie,” with its official music video! Directed by longtime collaborator Sophie Muller, the clip finds the singer (rocking her classic red lips and heels) walking through a neon-colored jungle. There’s is also a fun dance scene towards the end, which breaks the the monotony of the video.

The geometric and graphic animation is nothing new though – it’s been seen with videos like Beyonce‘s “Grown Woman,” Rihanna‘s “Rude Boy” and M.I.A.‘s “Boyz.” Stefani’s upcoming third solo LP is expected to be released in December, and according to this awesome “Spark The Fire” preview, Pharrell will be partnering up with the singer once again.

Charli XCX’s “London Queen” Lyric Video: Watch The Animated Clip

Rock On!

Charli XCX draws inspiration from old-school computer games in the lyric video for her punky “London Queen” single. The visual finds the singer taking a joyride around town in a Barbie-pink jeep, from London all the way to Hollywood. The overall effect is totally chopped-up and glitchy, but it works perfectly for the Ramones-inspired track.

“London Queen” is the latest single off Charli XCX’s sophomore LP, Sucker, set for a December 16 release. It will also features songs like “Boom Clap” and “Break The Rules.” Check out the “London Queen” lyric video up top. More »

FKA Twigs partnered up with Google Glass to create a visual concept mini-film, titled “#throughglass.” In the two-minute clip set to re-recorded versions of “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron,” the singer shows off her slinky choreography using the glasses to search for dance inspirations.

Bebe Rexha’s “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You (Chainsmokers Remix)” Video: Idolator Premiere

Quench Your Thirst

After penning monster hits (literally) for other artists, Bebe Rexha is about to wreak some chart damage of her own with killer debut single “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You”. The soaring electro-pop anthem has been warmly embraced by pop radio and is steadily climbing iTunes. It’s also getting a lot of love in clubs thanks to an epic remix by The Chainsmokers.

The NYC duo, who dropped unavoidable floorfiller “#Selfie” earlier this year, sure know how to turn a pop song into perfect club fodder. (See their remixes of Chromeo‘s “Jealous” and Bastille‘s “Flaws” for further evidence). Their balls-to-the-wall overhaul now gets a dramatic, neon light-drenched video that gives you a whole new appreciation for Bebe’s breakthrough hit. Start your week off right by watching it up top.

Real & True

Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne team up again in the video for “Real Love.” The visual is an ode to – what else? – couples who are madly in love. Jack Patterson, the video’s director, keeps it simple as Glynne and Clean Bandit perform the song in a stark recording studio. But soon as the chorus kicks in, the performers transport to a brightly-lit stage at the Los Angeles’ El Rey theater. Throughout the video, various couples show their adoring affection towards each other.

“Real Love” is the latest single from the UK electronic-pop band‘s upcoming re-release of their debut album New Eyes. They previously collaborated with Jess Glynne for the summer smash, “Rather Be.”  More »

Ariana Grande’s “Love Me Harder” Lyric Video: Watch

Love Me Harder

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 »

Red Hot

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.

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 »
