Fleur East Debuts Funky ‘Sax’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

On the current season of The X Factor UK, Simon Cowell is the first judge with all his acts eliminated. Definitely a far cry from last year when the acerbic British judge’s acts place first and second. To be fair, none of his Over 25s for Series 12 can hold a candle to Series 11. Talent is not nearly as strong.

Fleur East, who snagged the runner-up spot in 2014, recently released her debut single. Wisely, her team crafted a single in the vein of her X Factor breakout performance. “Sax” definitely has the attitude and funk of “Uptown Funk,” albeit a poor man’s version but still upbeat and fun. The hook is sassy, beyond catchy and naturally filled with sexy sax moments.

Directed by Colin Tilley, the accompanying visual is a colorful affair with East rocking a bold wardrobe. Girlfriend certainly loves her bright vibrant hot pants. Give the music video a view below. There’s plenty of energetic choreography.

Coldplay drops their seventh studio album on December 4. Rumors are abound that A Head Full of Dreams might be their final album. In an interview last year, Chris Martin compared the LP to “the last Harry Potter book or something like that,” saying it’s “the completion of something.” If that’s the case, fans better savor every moment of their upcoming era.

The British rock band previously debuted “Adventure Of A Lifetime” in full and now we have a quick listen at the entire thing. The album sampler previews their collaborations with Tove Lo, Avicii, Stargate, Noel Gallagher and the one and only Beyonce and her daughter Blue Ivy. Speaking of kids, there are rumors that his kids with Gwyneth Paltrow, Apple and Moses, are also included. Check out a preview of their album below.

During their respective hey days, I’m sure neither Nick Carter nor Avril Lavigne would’ve thought they’d team up one day for a duet. After all, she was the princess of skater punk while he was part of a band that was the definition of pop. Years later, the icons from the early 2000s find themselves working together.

“I talked to Avril about doing a collab together, and we became friends – we were on tour together with the Backstreet Boys,” Carter explains. “She was into the idea, and she really liked it. She liked the song that I had written, and she put her vocals on the song, and it was really cool.”

Get Over Me” is off Carter’s new solo album, All American, which was released this week. It’s a cute collabo but doesn’t scream smash hit. Truthfully, it sounds a bit dated. Give it a listen below and share your thoughts afterwards.

At this point of her hectic 25 promotional tour, I’m sure Adele is a little tired of singing “Hello.” Who could blame her?

To make things interesting, the 27-year-old Brit performed the power ballad accompanied by school instruments on The Tonight Show. Bongos, a kazoo, xylophone, orange shaker and a wood block were just a few of the instruments used.

If you’re a regular viewer of the late night show, you know it’s not the first time Jimmy Fallon and The Roots have done this. Idina Menzel, One Direction, Meghan Trainor, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Carly Rae Jepsen and even the Kermits have participated in this fun activity. Check out Adele’s amazing performance below.

In this age of declining record sales, I though ‘N Sync’s first week album sales record was unbreakable. The boy band sold 2,416,000 copies of No Strings Attached back in 2000. Leave it to Adele to prove me wrong.

In just three days of release, the 27-year-old Brit’s third studio album, 25, has already surpassed the previous benchmark. Reportedly, it’s already sold 2,433,000 copies. With still a few days to go before the week is up, experts project the LP could read 2.9 million. I’m hoping she actually exceeds that and crosses the 3 million mark. Final numbers will be announced Sunday.

Just in case you were wondering, the greatest first-week sales record for an album by a female artist was previously held by Britney Spears who sold 1,319,000 copies of Oops!… I Did It Again. If you combine that total with the runner-up, Taylor Swift‘s 1989 which moved 1,287,000 copies, Adele beats them handily.

Did you purchase 25? What are your favorite tracks? Weigh in below.


Loved “I Bet” and “Dance Like We’re Making Love,” but it seems like I was the only one. Despite those singles and other solid tracks, Jackie is by far Ciara’s lowest-selling album to date.

At least her personal life is faring much better than her professional one. The 30-year-old singer has a hot quarterback, Russell Wilson, by her side. Too bad their new relationship isn’t bringing either one good luck. Just ask Seahawks’ fans 😉

Bless Ciara though for not giving up on her career, despite it being majorly stalled. Two new tracks have surfaced online. While both slow-tempo tracks are pretty decent, girlfriend needs an energetic banger to win back fans. Check out “Oh Baby” and “Special Edition” below. Of the two, I prefer the Dr Luke-produced “Oh Baby.”

Avicii Debuts Olympian ‘Broken Arrows’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Avicii scored big with his folk-tinged smash “Wake Me Up” featuring Aloe Blacc. The 26-year-old Swedish DJ has another potential hit on his hands by once again thinking outside the box. He’s enlisted the Zac Brown Band, for his newest single, “Broken Arrows.” Who knew country-tinged vocals would work so well with dance synths.

For the accompanying visual, director Julius Onah looked to Olympic history for the narrative. The protagonist in the clip is loosely inspired by Dick Fosbury. The track athlete revolutionized the high jump event with an unique new technique which later became known as the “Fosbury Flop.”

Until he won gold at the 1968 Olympics, no one had jumped with their back first. I’m sure Onah took liberties with the real story to make a compelling clip. Did the daughter really come up with the idea? Keep that in mind when watching the music video below.

Both Justin Bieber and One Direction were in full promotional mode all last week for their respective new albums. After the dust settled, the Canadian singer beat out the boys from the UK. Purpose earned 649,000 equivalent album units (522,000 in pure album sales) during its first week. Meanwhile, 1D moved 459,000 units, 402,000 in pure album sales.

Not only his Purpose, the Bieb’s sixth No. 1 album, but it also represents his largest sales week ever. His previous best was Believe which sold 374,000 during its first week in 2012. Sadly though for Justin, he’ll only have a one-week reign. Adele is set to crush Billboard records when her numbers are tallied next week.

Speaking of records, Justin achieved a big one over on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Find out below.
