Weird Al Yankovic Scores First Number One Album

It’s hard to believe it’s never happened previously. For the first time in his storied career, Weird Al Yankovic has scored a number one album on the Billboard Top 200, by moving 104,000 copies of Mandatory Fun during its first week.

It looks like all that hard work promoting his fourteenth studio album paid off. The 54-year-old released a new music video every day since last Monday- eight in total. If you missed any of them, I’ve posted them all below. Congrats to Weird Al for this career milestone.

“It’s kinda blowing up,” says the 54-year-old comedian. “The response has surprised even me. I really like the videos and thought they’d have a big impact, but this has been beyond my wildest expectations. This is the most attention that has ever been focused on me probably ever. I’m quite overwhelmed by it all.”

Earlier today, Hilary Duff revealed “Chasing The Sun” will hit stores on Tuesday, July 29. A couple of hours later, the 26-year-old shared a snippet of her comeback track via Instagram.

Her forthcoming fifth studio album will mark Duff’s return to the music industry after a seven year hiatus. Welcome back, Duff. The summery single comes courtesy of Colbie Caillat who co co-wrote it along with Jason Reeves and Toby Gad.

I took a break from music for quite awhile, but it gave me the power to choose my next steps carefully and I’m really proud of the album I’ve made,” Duff says in the press release. “‘Chasing The Sun’ is a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree.”

In addition to returning to the recording studio, Hilary is heading back to the small screen as well. She’s currently filming Darren Star’s new series Younger. Tony-winning actress Sutton Foster stars in the series set to premiere this Fall on TV Land. Check out a teaser of “Chasing The Sun” below.

It appears Fifth Harmony has a hit on their hands. Since they released “Bo$$” it’s been climbing the Billboard Hot 100. It currently sits just outside the Top 40, easily becoming the girl group’s biggest hit to date. It definitely has potential to become even bigger.

Naturally, the girls are in overdrive promoting their scorching girl power anthem. They recently stopped by Billboard to perform to it, along with a new ballad titled “We Know.” Not surprisingly, 5H slays it. I almost prefer the stripped-down version of “Bo$$.” Normani Hamilton has really come into her own with this track. I used to think Camilla was the star, but Normani is giving her a run for her money. Check out both performances below.

pharrell-williams-come-get-it-bae

Once again, Pharrell Williams enlists a bevy of women for his music video. This time around though, Miley Cyrus joins in on the fun and mean mugs for the camera. Gone though is Williams’ polarizing Arbys-looking chapeau. I’m sure plenty of you will be ecstatic about that.

While there is a nice diverse mix of women, sadly there are no women past a certain age featured. Definitely strange given that the video begins with “Beauty Has No Expiration Date.” A tad contradictory, no? I will say though, the lively choreography executed by the women is a fun watch. Check out the clip for “Come Get It Bae” below.

LeAnn Rimes’ Greatest Hits Get Remixed

Long before she was tabloid fodder, LeAnn Rimes was one of the best-selling country artists around. The past several years, she’s mostly known for her ongoing feud with Brandi Glanville. Recently, she tried to capitalize on it by putting her personal life on television in new reality show. Sadly, very few (like almost no one) tuned in to watch LeAnn and Eddie. Hopefully, she’ll yield better results with her new album.

On August 5, the 31-year-old singer releases a new remixed collection of her hits called Dance Like You Don’t Give a . . . Greatest Hits Remixes. She’s enlisted some of the industry’s hottest remixers including Cahill, Digital Dogs, Kaskade, Soul Seekerz and many more. Rimes has uploaded a couple of tracks from the forthcoming compilation. Hear the new versions of “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” and “I Need You” below.

the-giver-movie-soundtrack

When artists contribute to movie soundtracks, sometimes I get the feeling it’s just a throwaway track from a previous album. Does anyone else sense that as well? That’s not the case with OneRepublic’s “Ordinary Human” for The Giver. It has an epic and ominous vibe perfectly suited to the young novel movie adaptation.

With Frozen doing boffo business, movie soundtracks are en vogue once again. It’s not a surprise OneRepublic bookend The Giver soundtrack track listing with another contribution, “I Lived.” Also appearing on the album are Tori Kelly, Rixton, Aloe Blacc and Capital Cities. Give “Ordinary Human” a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Clean Bandit Debuts Icy ‘Come Over’ Music Video

Clean Bandit has another potential winner on their hands. The British group has selected “Come Over” as the next single off their well-received debut album New Eyes.

The music video, directed by the band, shows Bandit’s cellist Grace Chatto in the Arctic Circle while featured artist Stylo G. gets his reggae groove on in Marrakech, Morocco. Another mesmerizing visual from the group. Will it top “I’d Rather Be” which currently has over 80+ million views? We’ll have to wait and see.

Speaking of “I’d Rather Be,” I’m still obsessed with that Jess Glynne-assisted track. Definitely one of my favorite singles of the year. It always puts me in a good mood whenever I hear it. If you haven’t check out the accompanying video, you should give it a view. Watch it below, along with Clean Bandit’s latest.

After a less-than-stellar sophomore album, Alexandra Stan returns to a previously successful formula. The 25-year-old burst onto the scenes with her dance hit “Mr. Saxobeat” back in 2010. The Romanian pop star has ditched experimenting with K-Pop and gone back to the sensual sexy sounds of the saxophone.

Dance” is a fun little track (albeit safe) with an equally enjoyable visual. Stan shows off her extremely toned body is an array of unitards. Check out the video below.
