One Direction Walks Down A Pier In New Video

In: Donovan, Music
one-direction-you-and-i-music-video

If watching One Direction walking pensively down a pier with their hair blowing in the wind is a dream come true, your prayers have been answered. Other than a few cool camera tricks where the guys morph into each other, that’s pretty much the narrative of their new music video. I should also mention that there is an attempt at parkour. ‘Attempt’ being the operative word.

You & I” is the fourth single lifted off their Midnight Memories LP. Their previous single, the title track, was their lowest UK charting track in years. It barely cracked the Top 40 at No. 39. Across the pond, it fared a bit better, peaking at No. 12. Is 1D fever cooling down? It’ll be interesting to see how their ballad charts now that the accompanying visual has been released. Check it out below.

Iggy Azalea follows up her one-two punch of “Fancy” and “I’m Coming Out” with another winner. The Aussie rapper is definitely on a roll. For her latest, she hooks up with Rita Ora on “Black Widow.” The track is part of Iggy’s forthcoming LP, The New Classic, in stores April 22.

If you like “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry you’ll love this collaboration. “Black Widow” sounds an awful lot like Perry’s chart-topper. Turns out, Katy co-wrote the track by providing the hook. Azalea tells Entertainment Weekly that Perry’s involvement came about after the EMAs in Europe last Fall. Check out the catchy new track below.

Sometimes it’s hard to live up to all the hype. Back in 2010, rising pop star Sky Ferreira was poised to be the next big thing. Several EPs and a debut album were released but none of them gathered much steam. Despite having a loyal following, the 21-year-old American singer hasn’t scored a crossover hit yet. Perhaps her latest can do the trick.

I Blame Myself” is the second single lifted off her debut Night Time, My Time. It’s been cited by several publications as being one of the best tracks off her album. Once again, Sky teams up with director Grant Signer for her latest visual. He’s previously worked with her on the last six videos. Their new collaboration exclusively premiered on SSENSE.COM. Check it out below.

“I had so much fun shooting this video in Compton because I got to work with director Grant Singer again,” said Sky Ferreira. “All the clothes in the video are from SSENSE and it was hard to pick what to wear since they have so many of my favorite designers.”

Kylie Minogue sparkles in a Schiaparelli haute couture bodysuit on the cover of Vogue Australia’s May 2014 issue. She’s simply flawless. What else would you expect from Kylie.

The diminutive singer speaks about personal and career change, and models one of Witchery’s white shirts as part of the Witchery White Shirt campaign inside the issue. Photographer Will Davidson snaps the “Sexercize” singer in a stunning fashion editorial for the publication. Check out more photos below.

Can nothing stop Elsa’s icy powers? Frozen continues to rack up more accolades. The Disney flick recently became the Top Animated Film of all-time with regards to worldwide box office receipts. It’s also making history with its accompanying soundtrack. By notching its 10th week atop the Billboard Top 200 it joins a very elite group of films, including fellow Disney movie, The Lion King.

Frozen is just one of 11 albums to have spent at least 10 weeks at No. 1 since the SoundScan era beginning in 1991. Four of them are soundtracks: Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard (20 weeks at No. 1); Titanic (16 weeks); The Lion King (10 weeks) and Frozen.

As most of you know, I’m a huge Real Housewives fanatic. Out of all the franchise kids, Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Foster’s daughter is one of my favorites. Considering the insane amount of wealth she grew up with, Gigi Hadid seems relatively grounded and normal. To boot, she’s stunningly gorgeous. Mark my words, she’s going to be a future Victoria’s Secret Angel and eclipse her own mother’s modeling career. The blond stunner sizzles in a white bathing suit for her boyfriend’s new music video.

Earlier this week, Cody Simpson was the latest celebrity booted off Dancing With The Stars. Oh well, at least he has his recording career and a gorgeous girlfriend to fall back on. With the Aussie on the brink of adulthood, he’s starting to explore more grown-up themes and lyrics. Obviously, the titular “Surfboard” is merely a PG substitution for his penis. Check out the real-life couple bump and grind in a shallow pool of water below.

Listen To Jason Derulo’s New Album In Its Entirety

Jason Derulo drops his new album, Talk Dirty, today. Technically, it’s just a reissue of his last offering Tattoos- a five-track EP. Released seven months after the original, Derulo collaborated with producers including Timbaland and The Cataracs to create brand new material to be released specifically for the U.S. version of the album.

Naturally his Top 10 hit, “Talk Dirty,” is included. I really didn’t want to like the 2 Chainz-assisted single but it grew on me massively. I’m not alone. It’s practically inescapable, playing on radio, television shows, sports arenas and even at a financial institution I did some banking recently. After quickly checking out Talk Dirty, I have a feeling some of his other tracks will do the same. Give his entire album a listen below.

Alicia Keys Debuts Amazing Spider-Man 2 Music Video

At first listen, I thought “It’s On Again” was a delightful neo-soul retro-tinged track. I was expecting to love it more after numerous listens. Surprisingly, it hasn’t. In fact, I’d the say the opposite is occurring. Given the talent behind “It’s On Again,” I thought for sure it’d be my next obsession. Perhaps expectations were too high. At least the accompanying visual is an entertaining watch.

Alicia Keys is joined by Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams. Lamar kicks things off rapping his verses into a walkie talkie while Pharrell, who produced the track, oversees all the action in a control room. Since he’s practically running things lately, it’s fitting Williams is where he is. It finishes with all three meeting up on the street with the video director and an orchestra. Random. Naturally, footage from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 are spliced in. Check out the visual below.
