It appears Fifth Harmony has a hit on their hands. Since they released “Bo$$” it’s been climbing the Billboard Hot 100. It currently sits just outside the Top 40, easily becoming the girl group’s biggest hit to date. It definitely has potential to become even bigger.

Naturally, the girls are in overdrive promoting their scorching girl power anthem. They recently stopped by Billboard to perform to it, along with a new ballad titled “We Know.” Not surprisingly, 5H slays it. I almost prefer the stripped-down version of “Bo$$.” Normani Hamilton has really come into her own with this track. I used to think Camilla was the star, but Normani is giving her a run for her money. Check out both performances below.

Once again, Pharrell Williams enlists a bevy of women for his music video. This time around though, Miley Cyrus joins in on the fun and mean mugs for the camera. Gone though is Williams’ polarizing Arbys-looking chapeau. I’m sure plenty of you will be ecstatic about that.

While there is a nice diverse mix of women, sadly there are no women past a certain age featured. Definitely strange given that the video begins with “Beauty Has No Expiration Date.” A tad contradictory, no? I will say though, the lively choreography executed by the women is a fun watch. Check out the clip for “Come Get It Bae” below.

LeAnn Rimes’ Greatest Hits Get Remixed

Long before she was tabloid fodder, LeAnn Rimes was one of the best-selling country artists around. The past several years, she’s mostly known for her ongoing feud with Brandi Glanville. Recently, she tried to capitalize on it by putting her personal life on television in new reality show. Sadly, very few (like almost no one) tuned in to watch LeAnn and Eddie. Hopefully, she’ll yield better results with her new album.

On August 5, the 31-year-old singer releases a new remixed collection of her hits called Dance Like You Don’t Give a . . . Greatest Hits Remixes. She’s enlisted some of the industry’s hottest remixers including Cahill, Digital Dogs, Kaskade, Soul Seekerz and many more. Rimes has uploaded a couple of tracks from the forthcoming compilation. Hear the new versions of “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” and “I Need You” below.

When artists contribute to movie soundtracks, sometimes I get the feeling it’s just a throwaway track from a previous album. Does anyone else sense that as well? That’s not the case with OneRepublic’s “Ordinary Human” for The Giver. It has an epic and ominous vibe perfectly suited to the young novel movie adaptation.

With Frozen doing boffo business, movie soundtracks are en vogue once again. It’s not a surprise OneRepublic bookend The Giver soundtrack track listing with another contribution, “I Lived.” Also appearing on the album are Tori Kelly, Rixton, Aloe Blacc and Capital Cities. Give “Ordinary Human” a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Clean Bandit has another potential winner on their hands. The British group has selected “Come Over” as the next single off their well-received debut album New Eyes.

The music video, directed by the band, shows Bandit’s cellist Grace Chatto in the Arctic Circle while featured artist Stylo G. gets his reggae groove on in Marrakech, Morocco. Another mesmerizing visual from the group. Will it top “I’d Rather Be” which currently has over 80+ million views? We’ll have to wait and see.

Speaking of “I’d Rather Be,” I’m still obsessed with that Jess Glynne-assisted track. Definitely one of my favorite singles of the year. It always puts me in a good mood whenever I hear it. If you haven’t check out the accompanying video, you should give it a view. Watch it below, along with Clean Bandit’s latest.

After a less-than-stellar sophomore album, Alexandra Stan returns to a previously successful formula. The 25-year-old burst onto the scenes with her dance hit “Mr. Saxobeat” back in 2010. The Romanian pop star has ditched experimenting with K-Pop and gone back to the sensual sexy sounds of the saxophone.

Dance” is a fun little track (albeit safe) with an equally enjoyable visual. Stan shows off her extremely toned body is an array of unitards. Check out the video below.

deborah-cox-covers-whitney-houston

For the upcoming Lifetime Whitney Houston biopic, the legendary singer’s life will be told but her voice won’t be heard. I assume it’s due to legal issues as to why Whit’s original recordings won’t be used. To circumvent this sticky issue, producers have enlisted Deborah Cox to cover Houston’s classic tracks.

TMZ got their sneaky little hands of Cox singing “I Will Always Love You” in the recording studio. As expected, Deborah does an impeccable job of covering the ballad. I’m sure Whit would approve. After all, the two collaborated on the underrated duet “Same Script, Different Cast.” Give Deborah’s cover a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Röyksopp & Robyn Debut ‘Do It Again’ Video

Röyksopp and Robyn are currently trekking around the world, promoting their joint EP. A group of friends and I checked out their show in Seattle last month for my birthday SLASH Seattle Pride. It was fantastic! Given their busy schedule, the video for “Do It Again” just debuted, despite the single surfacing months ago.

Shot in Mexico, the clip tells the story of desire, ecstasy and forbidden love during an impending revolution. The black and white clip was directed by award-winning Danish filmmaker Martin de Thuran. Read below what Röyksopp and Robyn told Digital Daze about their new visual.

Svein Berge from Röyksopp adds “I feel that the video in a clever way manages to emphasize one of the main themes of the song – doing something that might be considered morally wrong, and yet going through with it, fully aware of the consequences and potential repercussions. Some of these actions are driven by choice – others by necessity.” Robyn concurs, saying, “I´m pleased that, for me, the video stirs up a feeling of chaos which is what we talked about quite a bit when we wrote ‘Do It Again.’ Life takes you to a critical point and even though it might not make you happy, when it´s over, you want to go back.” Adds Röyksopp’s Torbjørn Brundtland, “Being there on these locations, the crew, the actors and the locals made it an unforgettable experience. Oh, and yes, in a good way, I might add.”
