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
austin-mahone-places

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.

age-of-ultron-parody-trailer

You’ll never picture “My Heart Will Go On” the same way ever again. No longer will you envision Leonardo DiCaprio holding Kate Winslet at the bow of the Titanic. Instead, you’ll see Captain America, Iron Man and all your favorite Avengers engaging in slow motion battle.

Some clever fan ingeniously dubbed the soaring ballad over the recently-released The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. It’s insane how some of the footage perfectly lines up to some key moments of the song.

Chris Evans knocking down the door while the diva wails the lyrics, “once more you open the door” is almost too good to be true. Another highlight is when Elizabeth Olsen dramatically lets out a cry at the onset of the song’s bridge.

For the next film, producers should really consider enlisting the 46-year-old singer. Her voice would make everything more emotionally epic as evident in this spoof. Definitely check it out below. It’s truly something to behold.

madonna-bedtime-stories

On October 25, 1994 Madonna released her sixth studio album titled Bedtime Stories. After receiving critical and commercial backlash for her controversial Erotica LP, Madge decided to soften up her image and not be as overtly sexual. Bedtime Stories sold over two million domestically and seven copies worldwide. It was also nominated for Best Pop Album at the 38th Grammy Awards.

Inspired by R&B and new jack swing, the album featured more radio-friendly tracks. She worked with Dallas Austin, Babyface, Shep Pettibone, Herbie Hancock and Bjork to name a few. The title track, “Bedtime Story,” saw Madonna experimenting with electronic music- a sound she further explored for her next album- Grammy Award-winning Ray Of Light. It was this era that spawned one of the pop star’s best ballads in her discography- “Take A Bow.”

Take a walk down memory lane for the album’s 20th anniversary by watching the music videos released by Madonna. “Human Nature” is my favorite with “Secret” a close second. Be sure to weigh in on which of her singles were your favorite during this era

tamar-braxton-let-me-know-video

Tamar Braxton has really come into her own the past few years. IMHO, she’s successfully stepped out of her sister, Toni’s shadow. Not only does she have her own hit reality series, but she’s also a co-host of the syndicated talk show, The Real. Plus, her music is doing quite well on the charts and on urban radio.

The 37-year-old is currently in the studio working on her follow-up to last year’s well-received Love and War. The lead single, “Let Me Know,” off her forthcoming third studio album premiered recently. The R&B diva gets assistance from Future on the track and samples Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love).” I’m always down for an Aaliyah sample, especially that track.

Watch Tamar serve dramatic glamorous poses and looks in the accompanying video below. If you loved her previous album, you’ll love this. I’m definitely a fan.

Leighton Meester Streams New Album Heartstrings

In: Donovan, Music
leighton-meester-heartstrings

During the height of her Gossip Girl fame, Leighton Meester signed a major-label recording contract with Universal Republic Records. The 28-year-old had a promising start, scoring a Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit with Cobra Starship‘s “Good Girls Go Bad.” Her label then hooked her up with Robin Thicke for “Somebody To Love,” but that went nowhere fast. Thicke once again screwing over a woman ;)

With no major label backing her, Meester decided to do things on her own. Mrs. Adam Brody pulled a Beyonce and randomly dropped an album titled Heartstrings this week with no fanfare. Based on her previous singles, I was expecting more pop club-ready fare. Instead, Leighton delivers a folksy Lana Del Rey-esque type of album. The understated LP is surprisingly not half bad. Check out the entire thing below.
