david-guetta-nicki-minaj-hey-mama

The last time David Guetta and Nicki Minaj teamed up together, the club smash “Turn Me On” was born. It was one of my favorite cuts off Nothing but the Beat along with “Titanium” and “Without You.”

The dynamic duo of Guetta and Minaj are back together and this time enlisted Afrojack and Ester Dean on production and Bebe Rexha for the hook on “Hey Mama.” The track is off Guetta’s forthcoming Listen LP being released on November 24.

Hey Mama” is another EDM song destined to be a hit for them. With that being said, it’s vastly different from their previous collaboration. Bonus points for steering away from “Turn Me On 2.0.” It’s not easy to catch lightning in a bottle twice using the same formula. Wisely, it’s more pop oriented with Minaj flaunting her Caribbean roots on the island-tinged gem.

Nicki’s rhymes are also a change of pace with her exploring her domestic side and not being her usual aggressive self. She’s all about her man and catering to his needs. Is the femcee longing to be a Stepford wife? Give “Hey Mama” a listen below and check out Minaj’s new side.

Selena Gomez’s New Track ‘Do It’ Surfaces Online

Believe it or not, at age 22, Selena Gomez is releasing her first greatest hits album. How old and unaccomplished do you feel ;) For You hits stores on November 24 and will be her last contractually obligated release on Hollywood Records.

Do It” is one of two original songs featured on her forthcoming album. Unlike “Heart Wants What It Wants” which was inspired by her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, this one is a bit more lighthearted and poppy. Not to be negative, but this doesn’t scream hit smash material, but rather B-side or album filler quality. However, since there are only two never-been-released tracks, this is obviously her next single.

If you like this sound, enjoy it while you can. I predict Gomez will seek a new label to explore a new mature sound for her next album. She’ll fully transition to adult star and leave her family-friendly image adios. At least that’s what I think. Check out “Do It” below.

beyonce-ring-off-7-11

Beyonce releases the Platinum Edition Box Set of her platinum-selling self-titled album next week. It’ll include two CDs and two DVDs, containing two new songs- “7/11” and “Ring Off,” four remixes of previously released songs and all the tracks off Beyonce.

Unlike her last album which caught everyone off guard with its surprise release, this time around the new offerings have leaked. Knowing Bey though, I wouldn’t be shocked if she had a hand in these surfacing online.

Of the two new tracks, “Ring Off” is promising and has more radio potential with its sassy lyrics and catchy beat. Meanwhile, “7/11” seems like a retread of “Flawless” and other tracks off Beyonce. I suppose its fitting giving that it’s appearing on the re-release. Check out both snippets below and share your thoughts on each track afterward.

Meghan Trainor finally releases the follow-up to her mega-hit “All About The Bass.” Wisely, “Lips Are Moving” is not only similar in sound but also with the accompanying music video. The “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” rule definitely applies here. Clearly, Trainor’s team and label is taking the safe approach. Hopefully, the 20-year-old singer shows a different side with her next single off her album Title.

Lips Are Moving” is currently rising on the Billboard Hot 100 and most likely will become a radio hit. With that being said, it probably won’t match its predecessor’s success. Still, not too shabby for a single that reportedly took only eight minutes to right, according to Trainor. Check out the bubbly clip below which features lots of pink and Trainor acting all cutesy. It’s pretty much “All About The Bass 2.0.”

Clean Bandit Covers 90s Classic ‘Show Me Love’

One of my favorite house tracks from the 90s is hands down “Show Me Love” by Robin S. That bassline is just killer. It appears that Clean Bandit is a fan of the classic dance anthem as well. The English electronic group covers the track for the re-release of their debut album New Eyes in stores now. It’s one of the new tracks featured on the album- “Real Love” featuring Jess Glynne and “Stronger” being the others.

This isn’t the first time Clean Bandit has taken on “Show Me Love.” If you caught them on their North American tour, they performed it live as well. Taking on the vocals is featured artist Elisabeth Troy who’s often a pitch hitter for the band, sometimes taking on Glynne’s vocals on “I’d Rather Be” and “Real Love” when on the road. Check out their version below, along with the original.

kylie-minogue-sleepwalker

Months ago, Kylie Minogue surprised fans with four new tracks she recorded in collaboration with Fernando Garibay. Even better was the fact they were all available to download for free. The two have joined forces once again for the short film “Sleepwalker.” For those lucky enough to catch Minogue on her Kiss Me Once Tour in Europe this Fall, had an opportunity to see this gorgeous visual. Now the rest of her Lovers worldwide get a glimpse of it.

The 46-year-old singer rocks out fashions by Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Meadham Kirchhoff and Christian Louboutin while posing dramatically to create some unique silhouettes. According to Vogue UK, where the clip first premiered, Kylie transforms into a case of characters, from Miss Havisham to Sleeping Beauty. Watch the eight-minute long clip below produced by SLoggi.

idina-menzel-baby-its-cold-outside

Idina Menzel’s label released her holiday album so early, I thought it hit stores last year and not early October 2014. Even the 43-year-old singer thought it was a little premature. I suppose that’s why she waited until now to debut the first video, promoting Holiday Wishes.

Menzel takes on the classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Michael Bublé who himself has become a holiday tradition with his yearly Christmas specials. Both only make cameos in the accompanying visual, putting all the focus on two adorable mini versions of themselves. Check out the clip below which pays homage to Hollywood classic films.

They previously collaborated on the Pharrell-produced JHUD cut, “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.” Turnabout is only fair play. This time, Iggy Azalea enlists Jennifer Hudson on “Trouble” appearing on her forthcoming reissue, Reclassified.

The 24-year-old femcee shared a snippet of the laidback soul-tinged track on YouTube. I’m not that overly impressed with it so far. Perhaps, after the full length version is released, it’ll win me over. For now, it’s just ‘meh.’ Definitely the weakest collabo on her new album so far. Give it a listen below
