omi-hula-hoop

It took three years for “Cheerleader” to hit the masses and reach the apex of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. And that’s mostly due to Felix Jaehn for crafting a killer house remix to the reggae track. The Jamaican singer probably won’t have to wait that long to achieve another hit.

Omi just dropped the follow-up and minus the awful title, it’s pretty darn catchy. “Hula Hoop” doesn’t stray too far from his breakthrough song, which is smart on his part. He could very well escape the dreaded one-hit wonder moniker with his new offering. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

justin-bieber-what-do-you-mean

For a good while there, Justin Bieber was the butt of every joke due to his antics and doucey behavior. His music was just an afterthought. The 21-year-old started to turn things around when he did a public mea culpa. He also wisely joined in on the joke by participating in a Comedy Central roast. With his image on an upswing, the Biebs is shifting focus on his music. After all, that’s what initially catapulted him to stardom.

What Do You Mean” is the lead cut off his forthcoming fourth studio album due out on November 13. The Poo Bear and Skrillex co-production is a laidback breezy affair. It’s actually quite good and has already topped the iTunes chart. I love the light tropical vibe of the track. This has potential to become a huge hit for the Canadian singer. Check out the lyric video below featuring skateboarder Ryan Sheckler.

After debuting the mellow introspective single “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song),” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis pick up the tempo for a true comeback single. The Seattle duo premiered their new single earlier today via iHeartRadio.

Downtown” features a groovy throwback sound. It reminds me of an old school record from the early days of hip-hop. The accompanying visual features a similar vintage vibe.

The Jason Koenig-directed visual is “Uptown Funk” meets “Thrift Shop.” Truthfully, it’s a little random and ridiculous but a fun entertaining watch. Check out the clip below which features a cameo from former Seattle Mariner Ken Griffey, Jr.

miley-cyrus-undercover

No matter who you are, everyone is a little curious about what people really think about them. I admit I sometimes want to be a fly on the wall. After all, I’m only human.

Miley Cyrus disguised herself as an Australian reporter for Jimmy Kimmel Live! She hit the Hollywood streets to ask people what they think about the Hannah Montana actress for a new edition of “I Witness News.” Most didn’t recognize her but one gentlemen caught on real quick to the stunt even with Miley sporting a gnarly wig and glasses. Check out the amusing clip below.

Taylor Swift ended her final night at Los Angeles’ Staples Center with a bang.

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, numerous artists have joined Swift on stage, either to perform or to sashay down the runway during “Style.” But T-Swizzle outdid herself this time around. And I’m not talking about her duets with Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake either. Rather, it was another particular ‘friend’ that took the cake. Lisa Kudrow armed with a guitar surprised everyone with a duet performance of “Smelly Cat” with Taylor.

Are you kidding me?!?! Phoebe effing Buffay. I would’ve died had I been in the audience. I’m a huge Friends fan. Clearly, Swift is as well. Plus, it’s no secret Taylor loves her cats. She has one named Olivia Benson and another called Meredith Grey. Check out the epic performance below.

demi-lovato-confident-track-list

Demi Lovato has certainly come a long way in her personal journey with regards to her body image. Without a doubt, the 23-year-old has become comfortable in her own skin. Just look at her sexy new image.

With this building confidence, it’s only fitting Lovato title her fifth studio album Confident. Just look at the above cover art. Girlfriend is serving it to the nth degree.

Lovato took a unique approach to reveal her upcoming LP’s tracklist. She enlisted her famous friends to tweet a song title each to their followers. Some of those who participated include Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest, Kim Kardashian, Hailee Steinfeld, Nick Jonas and naturally her beau Wilmer Valderrama. Somehow notorious blogger Perez Hilton took part as well. I had no idea they were such close friends.

Check out below the tracks featured on her new album. Among the bunch is a collaboration with Iggy Azalea. Naturally, the Aussie rapper tweeted out that track.

Benny Benassi and Chris Brown first collaborated on the global smash “Beautiful People” back in 2011. That track was off Brown’s F.A.M.E. LP. This time around, it’s Brown who’s the featured artist.

Paradise” features a pulsating EDM beat which progressively builds to a musical climax. Though I’m not a fan of Brown’s antics outside the recording studio, I can’t deny he sounds great when accompanied with a fantastic bassline.

“Paradise” will undoubtedly dominate the clubs but it could also invade radio as well. Give it a listen below.

Rita Ora Enlists Fetty Wap For ‘Body On Me’ Remix

Fetty Wap currently occupies the No. 8, 9 and 11 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. With that kind of success, it’s no wonder Rita Ora enlisted the 25-year-old rapper for a remix of her current single “Body On Me.” Maybe some of his good luck will rub off on her. Girl is thirsty for a hit.

Chris Brown, who’s featured on the original, still remains on the new version. However, his verses are pushed back to make room for Fetty’s vocals. Surprisingly, Wap shows off his singing talent instead of his lyrical prowess.

Personally, I like the original version more. I’m not a fan of the reworked beat. But who knows? It might grow on me. I originally was ho-hum about “Body On Me” but quickly changed my tune once I saw the accompanying visual. Now, I can’t get enough of it. Give the remix a listen below.
