It is a known scientific fact that the only thing better than one booty is two.

As a result, it should come as no surprise that Iggy Azalea‘s newly polished remix of Jennifer Lopez‘s ode to the booty, “Booty,” is a booty-ful delight.

After hinting at the collaboration during the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Jennifer’s uploaded the brand new mix this morning. And, instead of Pitbull supplying his mile-a-minute horny thoughts, it’s Iggy taking charge: “They begging me drop down on ‘em, but right now, Iggy on the top/The last time the world seen a booty this good, it was on Jenny From The Block!” the Aussie femcee raps across the bouncy beat.

Are you ready for a double dose of “Booty”? Listen to the remix after the jump, and let us know what you think of the collabo in the comments below. More »

Rising New York City songbird VÉRITÉ was just getting warmed up with “Strange Enough,” the debut single that caught the online world’s imagination in July. She’s back with new offering “Weekend,” which, if you just stick to the surface, will likely keep the Ellie Goulding and Lana Del Rey comparisons coming. But listen a little closer and you’ll hear a singer-songwriter with a knack for savvy lyrics and attention-grabbing melodies on the verge of breaking out big.

Today Idolator is premiering dramatic new song “Weekend,” which is as energizing as it is melancholy. Head below to give it a listen. More »

Nicole Scherzinger Premieres New Single, “On The Rocks”: Listen

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, lead Pussycat Doll-turned-solo chanteuse Nicole Scherzinger described the “Nicole sound” as “midtempo, supercool, super-vibey, some of it’s a little throwback to Janet Jackson Velvet Rope and some of it has early essences of Sadé, but it’s current.” Erm, well…

“On The Rocks” is Scherzy’s follow-up to her immediately catchy “Your Love,” and — let’s just say, “current” isn’t exactly the term I’d use to describe this curiously Auto-Tuned-to-oblivion R&B ballad (especially that T-Pain-like bridge), which sounds something like a B-side to Kelly Rowland‘s “Rose Colored Glasses.”

“Let’s take a shot, since you been takin’ shots/And allow me to serve you this drink on the rocks,” she croons across the chorus. Listen to “On The Rocks” after the jump. More »

Last April, Betty Who stepped out with her shimmering debut: The Movement EP, a crunchy collection of ’80′s-tinged synth-pop tunes and heartfelt ballads like “Somebody Loves You” and “You’re In Love.” Following a major record label deal, she returned with the Slow Dancing EP earlier this year.

And now, her long-awaited debut album finally has a title, release date and tracklisting. Huzzah!

Betty Who’s debut album Take Me When You Go will be released on October 7, featuring production by Claude Kelly, Martin Johnson, Mag, Starsmith and longtime collaborator, executive producer and musical BFF Peter Thomas, with whom she worked on the record from the very beginning. And to drum up the excitement before the LP drops, she’ll be performing her debut single “Somebody Loves You” on The Today Show this Wednesday, August 27. More »

When it came to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards last night, only one thing was certain: Everyone was Taylor Swift‘s biggest fan.

While the 1989 country pop-turned-regular pop diva tore it up on stage to the sound of her breezy new single “Shake It Off” on stage, she was equally busy off-stage courting her shaking and crying Swifties from all over — from Jessie J to Jennifer Lopez to Ed Sheeran to Fifth Harmony‘s Camila Cabello. She’s got her fair share of haters, sure…but it seems like there’s way, way more love for Miss Swift.

Check out our gallery of celebs fangirling for Tay Tay at the 2014 VMAs above. Are you excited for 1989? Let us know in the comments below. More »

With the dust now settling on the 31st MTV Video Music Awards, various sites have been dissecting the night’s performances and the overall spectacle in general. For instance, Beyonce‘s eye-popping finale, not to mention her touching on-stage moment with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy while accepting the Video Vanguard Award, seemed to have captured the attention of most critics. Also being singled out is Miley Cyrus, for bringing a homeless 22-year-old as her date to the event.

The show was also shorter in time-length than usual, and a lot more tame when compared to recent years. So how did this all pan out as far as quality entertainment? Head below for our roundup of VMAs reviews. More »

Cobra Starship’s “Never Been In Love (feat. Icona Pop)” Gets A Lyric Video: Watch

Aug 25th, 2014 // Comment
Oh, They're In Love!

After the announcement of Cobra Starship‘s comeback track “Never Been In Love” last week, the Icona Pop-assisted banger has arrived. And how does it fare?

While the track had the potential to suffer from ‘EDM’ overload to keep up with current trends, it’s not that at all, really: Instead, the Wallpaper.-produced cut is actually a punchy party anthem, full of infectious piano melodies, hand claps, na-na-na‘s aplenty and a soaring hook of a chorus: “I know now…I’ve never been in love before you!” Some listeners in the YouTube comments have pointed out that it’s got a similar vibe to Fatboy Slim‘s “Praise You,” and there’s good reason for that: It’s sampled in the song!

“I had been listening to a lot of early 90′s UK artists — Jesus Jones, EMF, George Michael. It was a time when bands first started incorporating break beats and electronic elements into their music. I had been trying to find a way to modernize that sound,” Saporta explains of the track. Of course, the Icona Pop girls supply their usual fare of rowdy, sing/shout-along vocal skills to add some extra punch to the track, resulting in what will likely be the latest addition to your rager playlists.

Following his scene-stealing roles in films like Precious, The Hunger Games and The Butler, Lenny Kravitz is getting back to music with new album Strut, but keeping things cinematic with his music video for lead single “The Chamber.” The video, directed by Anthony Mandler, won’t arrive in full until September 4. But just like at the movies, Idolator is premiering the trailer for “The Chamber” today.

Above, noir-ish scenes fly by featuring Kravitz walking the Paris streets at night only to be stalked by a mysterious car. Is the driver of the vehicle the same full-lipped femme fatale the shirtless rocker beds down with in other bits from the trailer? Oh, Lenny — your life is far too complicated! More »

Well, she’s officially done the impossible: Charli XCX has made me want to be back in high school again — if only to be her friend.

After premiering the feisty first offering from her upcoming second LP Sucker, the bad-ass “Boom Clap” songstress has just delivered the appropriately school-themed video for her latest single, “Break The Rules.”

Charli and her friends (together, a giant group of mega-babes) are in no mood for academia in the newly premiered clip, causing a ruckus on the school bus and taking a pit shop at the fabulous Trashy Lingerie boutique to try on some sweet outfits for prom. Given the Jawbreaker vibes of the video, it’s only too perfect to see Rose McGowan making a cameo to play “The Chaperone” at the dance as the troupe makes their grand entrance and takes over the otherwise lame scene. (And after the Clueless nod with the “Fancy” video, it looks like Charli’s not over her ’90′s teen movie love affair!) No spoilers from hereonin, but watch all the way to the end…Carrie might also come to mind. More »
