dragonette-lonely-heart

If you love some old school No Doubt, this new offering from the Canadian electropop band will be up your alley. It’s classic Dragonette but with a little vintage Gwen Stefani mixed in.

Lonely Heart” is a bit ska-inspired but with their signature synthpop beats. It’s confirmed that it’s the first taste off the band’s long awaited fourth studio album. If they get radio support, the track could do some damage this summer. Give it a listen below.

fifth-harmony-all-in-my-head

We’re just days away from Fifth Harmony releasing their highly-anticipated sophomore album. From the looks of it, the quintet have a potential smash on their hands. “Work From Home” is still wreaking havoc and everything I’ve heard so far has been fantastic.

After hitting the stage at the Billboard Music Awards, 5H performed “All in My Head (Flex)” at Xfinity cable after show. The Fetty Wap-assisted track will serve as the official single from their LP, 7/27.

The reggae-tinged offering is solid but I was hoping a track not featuring a rapper would’ve been selected. It’s the third straight single with a featured rapper. I kinda get the feeling the label isn’t super optimistic the girls can stand on their own two feet. Check out their latest below.

Even though Ariana Grande just released a music video for “Let Me Love You” featuring Lil Wayne, technically that’s not her next single. Instead, “Into You” serves as the official follow up to “Dangerous Woman.” Wise choice. The EDM-tinged pop number, co-produced by Savan Kotecha and Ilya Salmanzadeh, has radio hit written all over it.

Once again, the 22-year-old petite singer teams up with Hannah Lux Davis. The director previously worked with Grande on her “Love Me Harder,” “Bang Bang” and “Focus” visuals. This one, might be their best collabo yet.

Grande looks sensational as she hooks up with Don Benjamin at a desert motel. Turns out, he’s not only her lover but her bodyguard as well. Is someone campaigning to star in a Bodyguard remake?

If Benjamin looks familiar, he competed on the 20th cycle of America’s Next Top Model. With Nyle DiMarco wowing on Dancing With The Stars and Benjamin’s high-profile gig, perhaps Tyra Banks should’ve allowed men to compete years ago. The alum men are giving their female counterparts a run for their money. Watch Don get cozy with Ariana below.

After relinquishing the top spot to Justin Timberlake last week, Drake returns to the summit of the Billboard Hot 100. “One Dance,” which is the rapper’s first No. 1 single as a lead artist, spends its second non-consecutive week in pole position.

Elsewhere on the chart, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” falls to No. 3 after debuting in the top slot. Fifth Harmony rebounds to its highest career Hot 100 peak, as “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, rises 6-5 while the Chainsmokers tie their best Hot 100 rank as “Don’t Let Me Down,” featuring Daya, climbs 7-6. Check out the rest of this week’s Top 10 below.

Garbage Returns With ‘Empty’ Music Video

The alt-pop rock legends are back and with a gritty new track that’s quintessentially them. “Empty” is the lead cut off Garbage’s forthcoming sixth studio album, Strange Little Birds, due out June 10.

The accompanying visual is quite a simple affair with the band just playing on a bare stage. However, the flashing strobe lights and the spinning camera work by director Sam Bayer are pretty sick. The colorful fluffy coat Shirley Manson wears at the beginning is pretty fierce too. Check out the music video below.

BET Throws Shade At Madonna’s Prince Tribute

The second Billboard announced Madonna was paying tribute to Prince, immediately there was backlash. Many felt, Madge wasn’t fit to honor the Purple One. Personally, I was cautiously optimistic that she would deliver.

While it wasn’t a trainwreck, the 57-year-old’s cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Purple Rain” was a tad underwhelming even with a surprise cameo by Stevie Wonder on the latter. Naturally, social media lit up with people bashing the “Like A Virgin” singer.

BET even got in on the action. The network threw shade at Madonna’s performance by promising a better tribute to the “Let’s Go Crazy” legend at their BET Awards June 26 telecast. Check out their promo below, along with Madonna’s tribute.

Taylor Swift used last year’s Billboard Music Awards to debut her epic “Bad Blood” visual. This year, Adele seized the opportunity to premiere her “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” music video. It’s a simple but very captivating affair.

The clips starts with the 28-year-old striking a fierce pose while wearing a floral Dolce & Gabbana gown. Her arched eyebrow is giving me life 😉 Once the camera pans towards Adele, she multiples. Before you know it, you’re looking through an Adele kaleidoscope. It almost feels like you’re on a psychedelic trip. Check out the Patrick Daughters-directed clip below.

Absolutely brilliant choice, given that Ellen DeGeneres’ character can never remember a thing. Kudos to whoever picked “Unforgettable.” Irony at its best.

Sia gives the classic 1952 Irving Gordon-penned tune, made famous by Nat King Cole, a somewhat haunting makeover. The Aussie songstress premiered the track with a live performance, fittingly enough, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The 41-year-old powerhouse wore her signature bow and two-toned wig, paired with a puffy dress. The styling was actually quite perfect. She looked ready for the ocean, serving pufferfish realness.

Check out her rousing rendition below. Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17.
