Admit it. You’re probably all about the bass. You know who’s probably not all about the bass? I’m thinking Taylor Swift. “Shake It Off” has held the No. 2 slot for the past eight weeks. Had it not been for Trainor’s breakthrough hit, Swift would’ve probably made a solid run for the title of longest-running Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper in 2014.

Unfortunately for Taylor, that honor now goes to Meghan. “All About The Bass” notches an eighth straight week in pole position. It becomes the longest-ruling No. 1 by a woman in 2014, passing Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s “Fancy” which held the spot for seven frames. Pharrell Williams, though, has the lead with 10 weeks notched under his belt for “Happy.” Can she keep the momentum going and stay on top for two more weeks to tie Pharrell?

If that wasn’t enough of an achievement to be proud of, she just bested Michael Jackson in one particular category. Find out how below.

There’s just something about Olly Murs that I find so adorable. He’s not the most talented singer out there, nor the hottest but I find myself oddly attracted to him. Perhaps it’s his style, swagger or goofy smile. Whatever it is, it all works for me. Naturally, I’m going to eat anything up he’s serving.

With that all being said, even without my adoration for him, I’d probably still like his new single, “Wrapped Up.” The disco-inspired track featuring Gym Class Heroes’ frontman Travie McCoy has an infectious chorus and groovin’ beat. It reminds me a bit of Bruno Mars’ smash hit, “Treasure.” The ZS Grant-directed visual has an equally fun vibe. The 30-year-old shows off his killer dance moves while rocking out a suit and white kicks.

“Wrapped Up” is the lead single off his fourth studio album, Never Been Better, in stores November 16. Demi Lovato also appears on the LP, lending her vocals on “Up.” Check out the music video below.

Never in a million years did I think this collaboration would happen, but it is. When The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack tracklist was unveiled, there was one track without a title, artist or producer credits. Lorde, who curated the LP, was keeping that a secret until the right moment… and that moment is now.

Actually, it was Ariana Grande who leaked the news by announcing their collaboration earlier today via livestream. The pop stars teamed up for “Track 5” (official title hasn’t been revealed yet). As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Diplo gets in on the action as well. Fingers crossed that Lorde actually delivers substantial vocals this time around, instead of the occasional “oohs” on Miguel’s soundtrack contribution. I can’t wait to hear it? Anyone else excited?

In other Mockingjay-related news, the studio just released the final trailer for the highly-anticipated film. Check out the exciting new footage below.

fifth-harmony-sledgehammer-artwork

Fifth Harmony’s new single “Sledgehammer” recently leaked to the delight of their loyal Harmonizers. Today, the girl group revealed the single’s artwork and more importantly the production credits.

Firstly, can we talk about the flawless cover? The girls serve up some vintage Gap ad fierceness circa the early 90s. Normani and Dinah’s locks have a Beyonce mind of their own ;) The single is equally as fantastic.

For those hoping “Sledgehammer” was a cover of Peter Gabriel’s 1986 smash hit, it’s not. However, the Meghan Trainor-penned single is awesome nonetheless. If anyone can write a well-deserved and overdue chart-topper for 5H it’s Trainor. Her breakthrough hit “All About The Bass” continues to rule the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Check out “Sledgehammer” below which features the production skills of Jonas Jeberg. The Danish hitmaker has crafted smashes for Kylie Minogue, Jason Derulo and Demi Lovato to name a few. Be sure to weigh in about the single afterward.

calvin-harris-haim-duet

HAIM isn’t Calvin Harris’ most high profile collaboration on his forthcoming album Motion. However, “Pray To God,” could be one of the LP’s brightest standouts. The Scottish DJ’s EDM synth-heavy beats surprisingly lend themselves very well with the chilling pop harmonies from the LA-based trio of sisters. Great decision to team up with the ladies.

If “Pray To God” becomes a smash club hit, which I think it will, I hope HAIM experiments more with this genre of music. It’s a nice fit on them. Perhaps they could be the new queens of dance music. With that being said, I hope they still include similar fare found on their well-received album, Days Are Gone. Love that album. Give the new club anthem a listen below.

Austin Mahone Debuts R&B Jam ‘Places’

In: Donovan, Music

Looks like his love affair with early 2000s boy bands is over. After looking to ‘N Sync and Backstreet Boys for inspiration on his EP, The Secret, Austin Mahone takes a more mature approach with his latest track, “Places.”

The 18-year-old trades in dance beats for a sexy bedroom sound. I’m thinking this is how he serenades the ladies after picking them up at the club. Or should I say bowling alley, since he’s underage ;)

Mahone get his lady love “screaming out oh-oh-oh-oh,” on the R&B slow jam which he co-penned with his friend Robert Villanueva. Listen to the track below.

calvin-harris-gwen-stefani-together

No offense to “Baby Don’t Lie” but THIS is a comeback single. Less than 24 hours after Calvin Harris premiered his Big Sean collaboration “Open Wide,” the Scottish DJ unveils his track with Gwen Stefani, “Together” in full. As one fans had hoped, it’s a winner.

The No Doubt singer goes full out EDM for the first time and it’s a good look on her. Stefani should really consider throwing a couple of dance tracks on her forthcoming solo album. “Together” is a festival-ready banger that will get concert goers jumping up and down. It’s still Gwen but with a nice electronic pulse. Give it a listen below. If you like what you hear, you can check out Harris’ full album, Motion, over at iTunes.

jessica-sutta-candy

My favorite ex Pussycat Doll is back with a hot new single destined to be a gay club anthem. Jessica Sutta recently unleashed the delicious Producer SX-crafted track titled “Candy.” It’s the lead cut off her long-awaited debut solo album, Feline Resurrection, due out in early 2015. Here’s what she told The Advocate about her tasty new offering.

“I worked on the song with two very talented and great people, Lil Eddie, who has incredible penmanship and a true ear for melodies, and S-X, my 21-year-old super producer. We sat in the studio and the energy was vibrating with a beautiful creative flow and we didn’t leave until we had created some sexy, delicious, yummy candy” – Jessica Sutta

Since breaking free from the girl group, the 32-year-old singer has released well-received solo work. Next to Nicole Scherzinger, I would have to say Sutta is arguably the most successful among her former felines. She’s scored a few dance hits, including the infectious No. 1 club smash, “Show Me.” With “Candy,” Sutta was presented at the pre-selection of Eurovision to represent Switzerland in 2015.

I firmly believe she’ll eventually make a huge name for herself as a solo artist. She deserves it. She’s talented, beautiful and more importantly, a nice person. During all my encounters with her, she’s always been gracious and very genuine. Congrats on the scorching new single. Give it a listen below.
