Take a seat, Victoria’s Secret. There’s a new power player in the lingerie game and her name is Britney Spears! The semi-retired pop star revealed her new business endeavor on Twitter this morning (July 23). “Coming very soon… The Intimate Collection, by yours truly,” she informed fans. “Just a peek at what’s to come.” The 32-year-old also shared  a link to the brand’s website, which reveals a launch date of September 9.

This is a smart move from Brit. Her perfume line is a mega-seller and she’s already dabbled in fashion by designing a range of casual clothes for Candie’s. Until she regains interest in her music career, the diva might as well keep that cash flowing in. As for the first promo pic? Well, that is some Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse-level Photoshop wizardry but I’m here for it. See her tweet and the full pic after the jump. More »

Officially sitting in the cozy #1 spot on the UK Official Singles Chart with their hit “Me And My Broken Heart,” British four-piece Rixton have also now released their second US single “Wait On Me.” Featured on their forthcoming debut LP, “Wait On Me” gives slight glimpses of Rixton’s clear Maroon 5 influence and is truly a good ole pop tune that is as catchy as ever.

“Wait on me, I know how to love you, and I want to love you some more” Rixton’s frontman Jake Roche croons over the thumping melody.

Well, that was rather bold, Jake, but okay — show us what you’ve got. We’ll wait for ya. While you’re at it, bring your upcoming album, too. Listen below! More »

Last week, we brought you the premiere of Wolfpack Wednesdays, a glimpse into the fun and fabulous life of rising starlet, Pia Mia.

The songstress continues to chronicle her journey back home to Guam in this week’s episode, in which the singer performs at Guam Live (without soundcheck, resulting in a spontaneous last minute rehearsal in the dirt). Still, she sticks it like a pro on stage, performing catchy cuts like “Red Love” and “Mr. President” for the adoring crowd. Following the performance, Pia takes a trip to visit patients at a local hospital (where she was born!), as well as taking a trip to the Mango Festival, meeting fans and being presented with a plaque as an ambassador for Guam. Quite an abundance of love!

Last week Toronto reggae-pop-rockers MAGIC! booted Iggy Azalea off the top of the Hot 100, which made for the perfect time for us to post their live, stripped-down rendition of their current #1 single “Rude.” Today we follow that up with the Nasri Atweh-fronted band’s very first acoustic performance of “No Evil,” a cut off MAGIC!’s debut LP Don’t Kill The Magic that they offered up during the same Idolator Sessions performance.

“I was sitting in a coffee shop…and I was thinking about my Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil, See No Evil monkeys that I have,” Nasri explains before the band launch into the song. “I started writing from my head, and I called the guys and I had it all structured.”

The singer/songwriter/producer goes on to note that this is the first time the band have done “No Evil” acoustically, and without rehearsal. More »

MNEK’s “Wrote A Song About You” Video: Watch The Ultra-Retro Clip

Best Of 2014 (So Far)

It’s safe to say British 19-year-old soulster MNEK has been doing quite well for himself as of late, appearing on Gorgon City’s smash hit “Ready For Your Love” as well as working with the likes of electronic troupe Clean Bandit and Aussie pop starlet Kylie Minogue. What’s more, the producer prodigy is gearing up for his own album debut, releasing infectious tracks like “Every Little Word,” as well as his recent meta 90’s House-laden hit “Wrote A Song About You,” to show people what’s in store.

Now, “Wrote A Song About You”  just got itself a fun, retro music video full of neon lights, ‘90s graphics and MNEK himself grooving to the beat. The clip is a bit reminiscent of the opening credits to hit sitcom Saved By The Bell —I mean that in only the best way possible! — or a really hazy, smoke-filled club on a ’90′s night. Either way, it simply works. Watch the visual up top. More »

Pharrell Gets Goofy With Miley Cyrus In “Come Get It Bae” Video: Watch

Pharrell is going full force with his latest G I R L jam “Come Get It Bae,” a breezy, post-“Blurred Lines” funky disco cut posed to reign on radio by the end of summer.

To bring the track to life, Pharrell’s enlisted a bunch of pretty ladies — potential baes, if you will — to dance around in a circle, gyrate and smile while he films them. Sure. Not creepy at all! Our favorite tonguey twerker Miley Cyrus swings in for some fun later on in the clip, jokingly dancing around with Pharrell, while showing some attitude and sipping out of a smiley face coffee mug. (Is that actually coffee in there? We’re slightly dubious.)

There’s not much happening here, apart from some lively dancing and some silly faces. Perhaps the most shocking part of the whole video? The fact that P’s swapped out the infamous massive hat in favor of a more reasonably sized fedora. Check out Pharrell getting phunky with some baes (and Miley!) up top. More »

Following rumors, teases and a general buzz about the grand return of ’00s sweetheart Hilary Duff, the singer is set to officially release her new single “Chasing The Sun” next week, on July 29. The singer/actress, now 26, released her last album (the just-slightly-ahead-of-its-time pop treasure Dignity) in 2007 via Disney’s Hollywood Records. The Duff has now signed up with Sony’s RCA label, and a press release notes that her forthcoming fifth LP is due out this fall.

As for “Chasing The Sun,” the single will hit iTunes next Tuesday, the same day the video premieres. Hilary’s comeback offering was co-written by “Try” songbird Colbie Caillat, fellow musician Jason Reeves and Toby Gad (One Direction’s “Truly, Madly, Deeply,” Nicole Scherzinger‘s “Don’t Hold Your Breath”).

Ducking into Santos Party House on Tuesday (July 22) evening in New York’s vibrant TriBeCa neighborhood, the mood was straight-up Giddy Night Out At The Club Circa 1995, from the rainbow-variety lighting to the fog machine to the deep house cuts the DJ was spinning. Granted, the venue is a nightclub, and said fog machine signaled the entrance on stage of the sweetheart of pop’s ’90s house revival scene: Kiesza.

When the Canadian singer stopped by Idolator for a chat back in March, to the eyes and ears of most, she was simply a girl on a small, independent label with a retro-sounding dance track called “Hideaway” that had a soon-to-be-viral video and a back story involving ballet, the military and a love of all things Michael Jackson.

In just four months, however, “Hideaway” has topped charts across Europe while Kiesza herself has hob-knobbed with Diplo, written music for Rihanna and become the new face of Fendi’s eyewear line. Only one puzzle piece was missing from the diva’s full arrival: her debut show in the United States. More »

Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora Look Smokin’ Hot In Their “Black Widow” Video: Morning Mix

Jul 23rd, 2014 // Comment

:: Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora have been snapped on the set of their Kill Bill-themed “Black Widow” video wearing leather bodysuits. Needless to say, the blond bombshells look completely amazing. [Rap-Up]

:: Fresh from sampling Miley Cyrus on new single “Hunger Of The Pine”, Alt-J are turning their talents to cinema. The British trio has scored a new short film called Wander With Me, which is described as a coming of age story. [NME]

:: Snoop Dogg is the poster man (?) for marijuana, so it’s not that surprising that he sparked up a joint in the bathroom of the White House. Amazingly, security was fooled by the rapper saying he needed to “burn something” because he was doing “a number two”. Words escape me. [MTV]

:: The concert event of 2014 is almost upon us. Mariah Carey has hinted at a looming world tour in a post on her newly overhauled website. This is amazing news for thirsty Lambs and connoisseurs of fine music. [Vibe]
