Seventeen proved lucky for James Taylor. The 67-year-old singer finally landed his first Billboard 200-topping album of his six-decade career. It’s almost criminal that he hasn’t achieved this previously. Before This World, his first album of original material since 2002, moved 97,000 units (96,000 of which were sales) in its debut week.

Taylor edged out a trio of high-profile new releases. Read below to see how Adam Lambert, Hilary Duff and Nate Ruess fared with their LPs.

Run Away With Carly Rae Jepsen On Awesome New Track

In: Donovan, Music

After her critically well-received single “I Really Like You” underperformed, I thought the Canadian chanteuse was dunzo. It appears Carly Rae Jepsen has a little more fight left in her. Her latest track off her forthcoming album E-MO-TION is legitimately sensational.

Run Away With Me” is pure pop perfection. From the sax intro to the shimmery pop production, the 80s-tinged throwback is undeniably catchy. Why the Shellback-produced single is being released in Japan this week and not til August 21 in North America is insane. A video treatment needs to happen ASAP. Give it a listen below.

Foxes Debuts ‘Body Talk’ Music Video

If I could pick one word to describe this music video, it’s hands down ‘random.’ Whoever thought of the idea of having Foxes dancing around at a gas station should be shot. The concept is a tad ridiculous and sadly underwhelming for such a fantastic track.

Foxes (nee Louisa Rose Allen) goes for a disco noir sound for her new single, “Body Talk.” It’s the first taste off her highly-anticipated sophomore album. At first listen, I heard some vintage 80s Madonna touches but with a modern electro-rock pop vibe. As always, she sounds fantastic and looks it as well. Check out the Virgili Jubero-directed clip below.

I absolutely adore this beyotch. Why the world isn’t as obsessed with the talented 22-year-old singer as much as me is mind-boggling. Her debut album Aquarius is highly-underrated and has, sadly, only spawned one Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hit. Both “Pretend” and “All Hands On Deck” should’ve followed in “2 On’s” footsteps if not surpassed it.

While many suffer from the dreaded sophomore slump, I’m optimistic that Tinashe will actually flourish. She’s got several huge producers working with her including Dr. Luke and Max Martin. Reportedly, she’s set to finish recording her new album this Fall. I can’t wait.

In the meantime, Tinashe has released yet another visual from her debut LP. She reunites with director Stephen Garnett for the trippy clip. It’s a cool video but I wish Tinashe had styled herself a bit differently. Whether intentional or not, she’s giving off a major FKA Twigs vibe. Check it out below.

The “Blurred Lines” singer has more lives than your average feral alley cat. Robin Thicke should be very thankful that people in the music industry still want to work with him after his underperforming last album, Paula. That LP posted embarrassing first week sales in the US (24,000 copies), UK (530 copies), Canada (550) and Australia (158). Thanks to Flo Rida, the 38-year-old R&B singer should find himself back on the Billboard Hot 100 once again thanks to this beyond catchy collabo.

I Don’t Like It, I Love It” is the latest cut off the rapper’s EP, My House. The 35-year-old Florida native just recently scored his tenth Top 10 Billboard hit with “G.D.F.R.” His latest feel-good jam is tailor-made for Summer listening and should do quite well on the charts and on radio.

For the accompanying clip, Flo Rida and Thicke hold a good old-fashioned block party full of dancing and hanging out with friends. It’s a simple visual but effective one for the catchy single. Check it out below.

Spike TV’s breakout hit, Lip Sync Battle, returns Thursday, July 9. The series still has plenty of big names to feature before closing out its freshman run. Among those still on deck are Iggy Azalea facing off against her fiancee Nick Young, Will Arnett versus Alison Brie and Andy Cohen battling it out with Willie Geist.

The LL Cool J-hosted series brings out the big guns for the two-part season finale. Empire’s Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard go head-to-head in a big way to win the coveted trophy. Henson brings out Mary J. Blige during her “Fine” showstopper, while Howard channels Rick James perfectly for one of his performances. Check out the trailer below.

Tove Lo Debuts Stunning ‘Timebomb’ Music Video

Not to be confused with Kylie Minogue’s highly-underrated “Timebomb,” this “Timebomb” is the latest off Tove Lo’s debut album, Queen of the Clouds. It’s another solid offering from the 27-year-old Swedish singer after the one-two-punch of “Habits” and “Talking Body.” Clearly, Tove is no one-hit wonder.

For her latest clip, Lo goes for a relatively simple yet emotional approach. It shows several couples showing a range of emotions on a beach, from embracing to full-on conflict. Meanwhile, Tove pops up in a black swimsuit emoting her little heart out. Check out the entertaining visual below.

Janet Jackson Debuts New Single ‘No Sleeep’

It’s official!!! Queen Janet is back to reclaim her throne. A week after announcing her Unbreakable World Tour, Janet Jackson debuts her first new single in five years.

No Sleeep” (purposely misspelled) finds the 49-year-old singer teaming up with longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. It’s a tad reminiscent of her 1993 smash hit “That’s The Way Love Goes.” Jackson seductively delivers the verses over smooth and soothing synths. It’s vintage Janet at her best. All hail the Queen of Insomnia.

“I dedicate this to My Love. https://youtu.be/v_2_VgUdeq4 #NoSL333P #ConversationsInACafe” – Janet via Twitter

The sexy R&B ballad is the lead single off her forthcoming eleventh studio album being released on her own label, Rhythm Nation Records. Hopefully, radio embraces Janet’s new material. Her comeback is long overdue. I can’t wait to check out the music video. In the meantime, check out JJ’s new single below.
