Will Smith Channels Pitbull On ‘Fiesta’ Remix

In: Donovan, Music

Bomba Estéreo must feel like they won the lottery. You can’t pay for this type of exposure. After stumbling upon the Colombian band’s music, Will Smith decided to contribute a couple of rap verses for their current single. How ecstatic they must’ve felt to have one of the world’s biggest stars as their fan and also reach out to them.

“When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn’t believe it. This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of. It’s not a traditional featuring—it’s just magic. We all had a blast together at the video shoot and we want to thank Will for being so warm and such a pleasure to work with… and for rapping in Spanish!” – Bomba Estéreo bandleader Simón Mejia

The remix for “Fiesta” marks the first time, Big Willie Style has recorded a song in a decade. It’s interesting that the 47-year-old entertainer chose to rap like Pitbull, serving up rhymes in both English and Spanish like the “Timber” rapper. To be fair, Smith did score big with “Miami” long before Mr. Worldwide ever came into the picture. Check out Will’s comeback below.

I’m obsessed, like seriously obsessed with this. I’ve already watched it a dozen times.

Tom Ford taps Lady Gaga to star in his fashion film showcasing his Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Mother Monster sashays down an illuminated runway alongside models including Lida Fox, Alex Dunstan, Xaio Wen Ju, David Agbodji, Mica Arga to name a few.

It’s only fitting Gaga covers Chic’s “I Want Your Love” for the Soul Train-inspired line. Ford explains why he chose to present his latest collection this way instead of going the traditional Fashion Week route.

“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new,” Tom told WWD. “I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online.”

Fingers crossed Gaga’s cover is a sign that disco plays a big part on her next album, because it suits her perfectly. Check out the sensational Nick Knight-directed presentation below. On a side note, I want every piece each male model is wearing in my wardrobe.

For those worried that Revival would consist only of slow tempo tracks like “Good For You” and “Same Old Love,” you need not worry. Selena Gomez has a few bangers lined up as well. The 23-year-old singer just shared one of those uptempo offerings in full.

Me & The Rhythm” was co-written by Selena and features melodic beats ready to dominate the clubs. There are some fantastic 80s vintage undertones in the bassline which I absolutely adore. By far, it’s my favorite track thus far off Gomez’s new era. I really hope the ‘buzz single‘ gets a music video treatment.

In other Selena-related news, the pop star revealed she’s hitting the road to promote her forthcoming album. Concert dates will be unveiled next week on Monday, October 5. In the meantime, check out her new gem below.

Kylie Minogue Spreads Holiday Cheer This Christmas

In: Donovan, Music

It’s time to almost deck those halls with boughs and holly. Prep yourself for an onslaught of holiday albums waiting to take a bite out of your wallet.

Need more sparkle this holiday season? Kylie Minogue answered your prayers and is releasing her very first Christmas album, aptly titled Kylie Christmas. The 47-year-old Aussie sings duets with Frank Sinatra, Iggy Pop, James Corden and her sister Dannii Minogue. The sisters were falsely rumored to cover Wham’s “Last Christmas.” Instead they team up on “100 Degrees.”

The holiday offering includes previously released Kylie recordings of “Santa Baby” and “Let It Snow.” Check out the full track list below, along with a video preview.

PS. How fantastic does Kylie look on the official cover art? I just wanna hang her on my Christmas tree this year.

Little Mix needs to look at their pop counterparts for tips on how to handle shady fellas. Each member of the British quartet are duped by the same dude in their latest visual. Jade, Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade need to exact some girl power revenge on him for standing them up at senior prom. #unforgivable.

Love Me Like You” is the official follow-up to their chart-topping Get Weird lead cut, “Black Magic.” The bewitching single did quite well internationally, with exception stateside. It only peaked at No. 67 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Sadly, I don’t think their new doo-wop-tinged number will fair much better in the US. I personally like it and think it’s cute, but I just can’t see it being their breakout hit in America. However, I could see it doing gangbusters in their native UK.

Check out the adorable clip below directed by Sarah McColgan. The vintage vibe really compliments the throwback single quite well.

Todrick Hall Slays It With Rihanna Mashup Tribute

In: Donovan, Music

Beyonce got one and so did Taylor Swift. It’s only fitting Rihanna receives her very own as well. Todrick Hall gives the Bajan beauty a tribute fitting of a true pop superstar.

Much like the treatment he gave the others, Toddy clones himself to cover some of RiRi’s greatest hits as a quartet. Some of the tracks covered include “Disturbia” and “Diamonds” to name a few. Check out his epic homage to pop’s bad girl below.

I wonder which pop diva will be next to receive his signature adoration. Might I suggest a legend like Janet, Madonna, Mariah or Whitney :)

A snippet of the powerful ballad was previewed during the trailer for the lesbian drama Freeheld. Miley Cyrus just debuted the guitar-driven piece in full and it’s fantastic. I have no doubt the 22-year-old entertainer will perform the Linda Perry-penned tune on the Saturday Night Live Season 41 premiere this weekend where she’ll play both host and musical guest.

“She walked in with no entourage, no fuss, no anything. She came to be of service for the song and the movie and didn’t bring ‘Miley’ with her.” – Linda Perry on Cyrus

Freeheld is based on the true story of New Jersey police officer Laurel Hester and her partner Stacie Andree. The two fought for equal benefits rights after Hester was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Julianne Moore and Ellen Page play the couple respectively and both attended the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Check out the track below.

Mentored by Simon Cowell, Ben Haenow outlasted the rest to take home the title of The X Factor Series 11 winner. The 30-year-old Brit is about to unleash his debut album next month and has enlisted another reality singing competition winner for some assistance.

Kelly Clarkson, who recently canceled her Canadian and UK tour dates for medical reasons, lends her powerful vocals for “Second Hand Heart.” The track doesn’t officially get released until October 9, but Haenow shared a couple of snippets via social media.

Based on the short preview, it has potential. Check out previews of “Second Hand Heart” below.
