If you enjoy the clip, you’re in luck. The Canadian siblings plan to pull a Beyonce and release a video for each song off the album. Check out their latest below.

Britney Spears isn’t the only diva being honored at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. Celine Dion will also be the recipient of a lifetime achievement award. While Brit gets the Millennium Award, Celine is set to accept the Icon Award. Previous winners of the latter include Jennifer Lopez in 2014, Prince in 2013, Stevie Wonder in 2012 and Neil Diamond in 2011.

“Celine Dion has a huge repertoire of monster hits and she personally chose to perform ‘The Show Must Go On’ as her ICON performance on the Billboard Music Awards,” BBMA executive producer Mark Bracco said in a statement. “I think at this moment in her life, the song has many meanings and it’s an amazing choice.”

Well, this is a surprise in more ways than one. Alicia Keys swaps out her signature soulful piano-driven ballads for a sultry Latin-infused new sound. It’s unexpected but I like this saucy new Keys.

“We all have our issues, our challenges,” Keys said in a statement. “We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what’s so beautiful.”

Produced by Illangelo, “In Common” is the first taste off the 35-year-old’s forthcoming sixth studio album, due out this summer. It’s the first song she’s released in four years. Thank God the drought is over. She’ll perform the track on Saturday Night Live on May 7. Give it a listen below.

desiigner-panda

Desiigner ended a record 41-week drought last week for American-born acts when he vaulted to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to that, the likes of OMI, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Adele, Zayn, Rihanna and Drake dominated the chart. Though “Panda” rules for a second straight week, expect Drake to return to the summit next week with “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla.

In the wake of this tragic death, Prince appears in the Top 10 for the first time in 22 years. I can’t believe the Purple One had been absent for so long. “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry” leap to No. 4 and No. 8 respectively.

Meanwhile, Beyonce set an impressive Billboard feat. Each and every track off Lemonade charted on the Billboard Hot 100. With 12 tracks simultaneously charting, she beats the previous benchmark for a female set by Taylor Swift when 11 of her songs charted. Overall, Justin Bieber holds the record for all acts, which he set late last year when Purpose debuted and 17 of his songs appeared on the chart.

Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

Elle King broke out in a big way with her infectious bluesy rock smash, “Ex’s & Oh’s.” Love that song. The 26-year-old rising talent recently released new clips to support two tracks off her debut album, Love Stuff.

America’s Sweetheart” finds King heading back to the disco era for an old school roller skating party. Meanwhile, on the complete opposite spectrum, the southern rock chanteuse opts for stop-motion animation to deliver a Bond-esque type narrative for “Under The Influence.” Check out both clips below.

Plagiarism claims are once again swirling around Beyonce. This time around, she’s being accused of being “too inspired” by visual artist Pipilotti Rist’s “Ever Is Over All” 1997 piece for her “Hold Up” visual. I have to say, after checking out a scene-by-scene comparison, the clips do look quite similar.

In the past, the 34-year-old superstar has been accused of ripping off other artists including Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Lorella Cuccarini’s work for Bey’s “Countdown” video and 2011 Billboard Music Awards performance respectively. Check out her latest alleged copycat act below, along with previous accusations.

britney-spears-millenium-award

Billboard just announced Britney Spears will be the recipient of their Millennium Award which acknowledges outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry. She’s the third person to receive the award. Beyonce was the first in 2011 and then Whitney Houston received it posthumously in 2012. The honor has been dormant until now.

Throughout her career, the 34-year-old “Toxic” singer has six albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with 24 Top 40 singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Five of those have reached the No. 1 slot. She also has six Billboard Music Awards on her mantle.

Spears will perform a medley of her hits at the show, airing on ABC on May 22 live from Las Vegas. Rumor has it, she’ll debut the lead single “Make Me (Oooh)” off her forthcoming ninth studio album at the awards as well.

Do you think Britney is worthy of the award? Excited to see her perform her hits? Weigh in below.

British DJ Bruce Fielder aka Sigala is absolutely slaying it in the UK. The 23-year-old record producer has three consecutive Top 5 hits over there. His latest, will undoubtedly keep his streak alive.

Give Me Your Love” features powerful vocals from John Newman and the talents of music legend Nile Rodgers. It’s definitely tailor-made for the club.

The accompanying visual actually features all three individuals. Typically for these dance collaborations lately, the featured artists are usually missing action. Check out the music video below with New York’s skyline serving as a beautiful backdrop.
