fantasia-sleeping-with-the-one-i-love

Fantasia has been belting this track on her tour for some time now and has finally decided to release the studio recording. It’s a testament to her powerful vocals that “Sleeping With The One I Love” sounds exactly the same as her live performances. Girl can saaaaaang for sure.

The soulfully rich ballad about romance and disappointment is lifted off her forthcoming fifth album, The Definition Of…, slated to drop on June 10. It’ll join other previously shared tracks “So Blue“, “No Time For It,” and the country-tinged “Ugly.” Give her latest single a listen below.

jessie-ware-till-the-end

I love me some Jessie Ware. It’s insanely criminal that she’s not a household name yet. The 31-year-old English singer with her immense talent is definitely underrated.

Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, is an upcoming romantic drama based on the 2012 novel of the same name. The accompanying soundtrack released the first promotional single, “Not Today” by Imagine Dragons, weeks ago. We now get the second promo courtesy of Ware.

“I read Me Before You on my honeymoon after hearing so much about it. So to be asked to be in the film’s soundtrack was really touching, as I couldn’t put the book down when I read it,” Ware told Elle. “It’s a song that means a lot to me and I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoy singing it.”

Till The End” is a beautifully-sung sweet ballad that’s dripping with soul. It perfect for the heartwarming film. Give it a listen below.

victoria-beckham-that-dude

Without a doubt, Victoria Beckham was the weakest vocalist in the Spice Girls. I don’t think even Posh Spice would argue against that. She even recently admitted she knew her microphone was sometimes turned off during some performances. Ouch!!! Even with her limited vocal talents, the future fashion designer decided to pursue a solo recording career.

Back in 2004, the 42-year-old singer couldn’t decide if she wanted to be the next dance diva or hip-hop princess, so she recorded two albums. Open Your Eyes reportedly included electropop tracks while Come Together had an urban touch courtesy of producer Damon Dash. Both LPs where shelved when British label, Telsar Records, went bankrupt.

A track off the latter titled “That Dude” has surfaced online recently. Is it a lost gem? Hardly, but it’s fun to hear Victoria channel her inner J. Lo. The track sounds like something Jenny From The Block would’ve recorded, and rejected, back in the day. Give it a listen below and weigh afterward. Also, how insane does Beckham look wearing Rocawear gear in the photo above? Hilarious!!!

Can’t say that I’m surprised that Todrick Hall is an Arianator. It’s quite clear the 31-year-old YouTube sensation has a thing for pop divas, like most gays. He’s shown previously that he’s a card-carrying member of Rihanna’s Navy, the BeyHive and a hardcore Swiftie. Now, he’s professing his love for the one and only Ariana Grande.

In honor of Grande’s third studio album, Dangerous Woman, Hall mashes up the pint-sized singer’s three albums in just five minutes. Watch how he seamlessly puts hits like “Love Me Harder,” “Be Alright,” “Bang Bang,” “Break Free” and more together in one epic track. Watch Toddy’s latest masterpiece below.

If you’re a fan of Todrick, be sure to catch him this summer on his Wizard of Oz-themed tour. Head over to todrickhall.com for details.

pitbull-enrique-iglesias-messin-around-video

Despite dropping some solid tracks including “Freedom” and “FREE.K,” his new album, Climate Change, was shaping up to to be a giant bomb for Pitbull. It appears Mr. Worldwide has turned around his fortunes with his latest track, “Messin’ Around.” The catchy number is gaining traction on radio and with a newly-dropped visual, it should climb even higher on the charts.

“Messin’ Around” is the umpteenth collabo between Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias. The track’s chorus heavily borrows from REO Speedwagon’s 1981 smash, “Take It On The Run.” The music video is exactly what you would expect from the 35-year-old rapper. It’s jam-packed with scantily-clad women jumping around and acting all sexy while taking Polaroid pictures of each other. Check it out below.

ariana-grande-christina-aguilera-duet

Christina Aguilera was originally supposed to duet with a hologram of Whitney Houston on the Season 10 finale of The Voice. However, Pat Houston, the executor of Houston’s estate, pulled the plug after being dissatisfied with the quality of the hologram.

“We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBC’s The Voice with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect. Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection. After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.” – Pat Houston

With the highly-anticipated duet dunzo, producers came up with an alternative plan. Since Ariana Grande was already booked to appear on the finale, it only made sense that these two powerhouse vocalists perform together. After Grande sang her new single, “Into You,” X-Tina strutted out to join Ariana on “Dangerous Woman.”

Overall, it was fine but I’m sure if they had more time to craft a proper duet, it would’ve been phenomenal. I much preferred Aguilera and Lady Gaga’s epic duet on “Do What U Want” a few seasons ago much better. Watch the duet below, and relive Aguilera and Gaga’s insane growl-off.

dragonette-lonely-heart

If you love some old school No Doubt, this new offering from the Canadian electropop band will be up your alley. It’s classic Dragonette but with a little vintage Gwen Stefani mixed in.

Lonely Heart” is a bit ska-inspired but with their signature synthpop beats. It’s confirmed that it’s the first taste off the band’s long awaited fourth studio album. If they get radio support, the track could do some damage this summer. Give it a listen below.
