As rumored, the witchy teen flick The Craft serves as inspiration for Little Mix’s new music video. The girl group play awkward nerdy high school students before turning to witchcraft to reverse their social status at school.

The visual, directed by Director X, is a bit literal but it’s fun nonetheless. The song is so catchy, I don’t mind the slightly cheesy concept. I’ve been playing it nonstop since first hearing it. To boot, the ladies look fantastic in the clip.

Speaking of “Pretty Girls,” the British quartet recently threw a little shade with regards to passing on the Britney Spears-Iggy Azalea collabo. “We knew we could do better,” when referring to the track. They clearly looked into a crystal ball, because they dodged a bullet. “Pretty Girls” dropped to No. 38 in only its second week on the Billboard Hot 100.

With that being said, I’d love to hear the demo they recorded. If it’s anything like their Instaoke performance of that track for Capital FM, it’s probably sensational. They also covered “Cheerleader” and “Anaconda” during that interview. Check out their covers, along with the “Black Magic” music video below.

cruel-intentions

The teen version of Dangerous Liaisons set in modern-day New York wreaked havoc on the box office in 1999. Cruel Intentions raked in over $75 million with only a $10 million production budget behind it. Not too shabby. Two sequels featuring none of the main cast were filmed, but went straight to home video. Not surprising.

The ladies of the teen flick met up recently for a girls night out. Reese Witherspoon shared a couple of pics of her posing with her former co-stars, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

They all look genuinely happy to be together again. After seeing the below photos, I’m craving a sequel but only if the original cast reunited on-screen. Check out the epic reunion below.

Hilary Duff Debuts Tinder-less Sparks Music Video

The fans have spoken, and loudly I might have. Hilary Duff and her team caved to demands and released an alternate version of her “Sparks” music video. Dubbed, ‘Fan Demanded Version,’ the new clip doesn’t feature any of Duff’s Tinder dates. Personally, I liked the original, but glad there is one without her dates as well.

On a side note, did you watch Hilary perform this track on Ellen a few weeks ago. Love Duff and this new track, but the performance was unpolished and awkward to say the least. Whenever I hear this song now, I keep visualizing Hilary’s out-of-sync arm swings. Someone needs to spend more time rehearsing with her dancers. Check out the performance below and you’ll see what I mean.

FOX Developing Urban Cowboy TV Series

Normally, the idea of any remake nauseates me, especially when it involves a classic. However, this one actually has me excited. Instead of trying to recapture the magic at the box office, FOX is bringing Urban Cowboy to television.

The series will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy and Bud as it unfolds against the gritty backdrop of rodeos, oil refineries, line dancing clubs and other aspects of modern-day Texas.

Adapting the John Travolta and Debra Winger classic for the small screen is a brilliant idea. Reportedly, the network is eying the project as a possible companion series for their mega-hit Empire. Given that the film is equally memorable for its soundtrack, this is a match made in heaven.

Are you looking forward to this potential series? I am. It’s going to be Empire meets Dallas meets Nashville. Check out a few of the memorable tracks from the film. My favorite is the Boz Scaggs track written by a young David Foster.

giorgio-moroder-deja-vu-album-preview

The old dog still has some new tricks up his sleeves. To promote the release of Deja Vu on June 12, the legendary 74-year-old Italian producer unleashed an epic video preview.

Instead of having your run-of-the-mill album sampler, Giorgio Moroder, with the help of director JIMES, filmed a megamix dance video highlighting his high-profile collaborations. It’s only fitting it involved dance, given Moroder was responsible for the Flashdance soundtrack and countless Donna Summer hits.

Check out the video below which features dancers moving to tunes assisted by Mikky Ekko, Kelis, Kylie Minogue, Foxes, Sia, Matthew Koma and Britney Spears. I love how the clip ends with the latter’s “Tom Diner” contribution and that there’s no dancing involved. They simply just walk off. Shady? Watch below.

everything-is-4-jason-derulo

Everything Is 4 drops in just a few days on June 2. Ahead of its official release, Jason Derulo decided to stream his fourth studio album in its entirety. Bold and wise move.

“The album is the story of my life told so vividly that I feel that everyone can see themselves in these stories. It signifies maturation, growth and evolution,” Jason Derulo tells People. He adds, “I am confident that anyone who listens will come away thrilled with the quality of the songs.”

Though the album is packed with high-profile collaborations from the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Meghan Trainor, Keith Urban, K. Michelle and Stevie Wonder, it’s his most low-key duet that I enjoyed the most. “Trade Hearts” featuring singer-songwriter Julia Michaels is killer.

After quickly listening to the album, I’m pretty confident that either “Cheyenne” or “Get Ugly” will be his next single after his smash, “Want to Want Me,” begins to die down. I’m leaning towards the latter as his official follow-up. Give his entire album a listen below.

She might never reach the heights of success that her older sister Toni achieved, but Tamar Braxton isn’t doing that shabby these days. The 38-year-old has two hit reality shows under her belt, a daytime talk show gig, The Real, and a respectable recording career. Tamar’s last album, Love and War, yielded a few hits for urban radio including the standout, “Love and War.” Her new era is coming and it’s off to a good start.

If I Don’t Have You” is the lead cut off her forthcoming album, Calling All Lovers. The beautiful ballad finds the R&B singer singing about the heartbreak she feels when her loved one isn’t by her side. The arrangement allows her to show off her full vocal range. Give it a listen below.

little-mix-pretty-girls-demo

At face value, it sounds a bit shady, but is it really? You decide.

As previously reported, Little Mix originally recorded a demo for “Pretty Girls.” The British girl group passed on it and gave it away. Eventually, it found its way to Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea. The girls explain how Spears got her paws on it.

“We’ve been away a while because we wrote an album, sat with the record label and we thought, ‘Nope, it’s not good enough’,” group member Jesy Nelson (second from right) tells The Sun. “We recorded a whole album but we’re perfectionists and knew we could do better. So we scrapped it and started again.”
