Adam Lambert gives his adoring fans another taste off his forthcoming album, The Original High, in stores in a month. The 33-year-old singer swaps out the house beats of “Ghost Town” for slinky haunting percussion.
Like its predecessor though, “Underground” also features some finger snapping. Another solid offering from his new era. I’m beyond curious to hear what else Lambert has in store for us on his new LP. Give his passionate ballad a listen below.
The highly-anticipated sequel, Pitch Perfect 2, hits theaters today. Who’s aca-excited? I’m definitely carving out some time this weekend to check it out.
Ester Dean not only stars in the film but provides a cut for the film soundtrack. Why “Crazy Youngsters” wasn’t chosen instead of Jessie J’s paint-by-numbers ballad “Flashlight” as the lead single is puzzling? This energetic track is far livelier than that snoozefest. No disrespect to Jessie, but keeping it real.
Dean not only enlists a few of her Pitch Perfect 2 co-stars like Anna Camp, Brittany Snow and Flula, to appear in the music video but also several YouTube stars. Check Ester and company below acting all ‘crazy’ on the streets of London. It’s pretty aca-awesome and lots of fun.
Immediately, I was turned off by the title. It’s blatantly clear, Adam Levine and company are chasing the ‘Song of the Summer’ crown for 2015. Calvin Harris pretty much did the same thing last year when he released the aptly-titled, “Summer.”
Despite this, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” instantly hooked me. The chorus is undeniably catchy. I couldn’t erase the earworm from memory after just one listen. Damn you, Maroon 5!!! Levine just owns it and his vocals have never sounded better. It’s the lead single of the band’s upcoming re-issue of their album, V.
Gotta hand it to Maroon 5. They haven’t had a misstep in years. Since 2011’s “Moves Like Jagger,” nothing they’ve released hasn’t managed to crack the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. That’s an impressive eight hit single streak. Guaranteed, their latest will continue that trend and will be inescapable this Summer. This one’s got bonafide smash written all over it. Give it a listen below.
This needs to be a single stat!!! Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande slay their cover of the 1986 classic “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House. It’s soooo good.
The two recorded the track to raise funds for Cyrus’ Happy Hippie Foundation which supports homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations. They donned adorable onesies, unicorn for Miley and mouse for Ariana, for their karaoke session in the “Wrecking Ball’s” backyard. Check out the sensational cover below.
When FOX presented at this year’s upfronts, Scream Queens was one show that didn’t have a trailer. A little odd, but I just assumed there wasn’t enough footage since they only recently began filming. Imagine my surprise and delight when the network dropped a new promo showing actual footage.
Most of the previous promos featured Emma Roberts in highly-stylized scenarios. This one titled “Pledges” shows the other cast members and a hint at the storyline. Roberts plays, not surprisingly, a ruthless sorority bitch while Michele ditches her Rachel Berry persona and shows up in an uncomfortable looking neck brace.
Check out the clip below which features several screaming queens. Not the college coed types but rather of the flaming variety ;) Scream Queens will air on Tuesdays this Fall.
Weeks ago, Hilary Duff made headlines when she joined Tinder. It appears it was all part of a master plan. The 27-year-old former Lizzie McGuire actress highlights her dating experiences in her new “Sparks” music video. To be honest, it’s practically an advert for the dating app. Is the Duff a secret investor or what?
The Hannah Lux Davis-directed visual splices Duff’s excursions with cute boys with scenes where she shows off some seductive choreography. The response to the clip hasn’t been exactly positive. The Tinder references have turned some off, but I gotta say I enjoyed those moments. I could watch a reality show with Hilary going on these dates.
With that being said, I wouldn’t mind a director’s cut where it features the Younger star just dancing her little heart out. Check out the clip below and weigh in afterward.
In my opinion, Tori Kelly is on the cusp of breaking out in a big way. The infectious lead single, “Nobody Love,” off her forthcoming debut album hasn’t become a huge smash yet, but it did crack the Top 20 of Billboard’s Pop chart. One day though, she’ll prove me right that she’s the one American Idol let slip away during the ninth season.
The latest taste off her LP is another catchy track. Max Martin didn’t produce “Should’ve Been Us” like he did “Nobody Love,” but it has an equally impressive pedigree. Swedish songwriters Ludvig Söderberg and Jakob Jerlström (Tove Lo) and Alexander Kronlund (Britney Spears) crafted this delicious earworm. What is it about those Swedes and their pop anthems?
“Should’ve Been Us” is giving me some serious Robyn vibes circa the 90s. Give it a listen below and weigh in if it reminds you of the “Show Me Love” singer as well.
With Iggy Azalea involved, an entertaining music video is pretty much guaranteed. The Aussie rapper’s cinematic approach is always on point. I’m willing to bet the farm it was Iggy’s idea to draw inspiration from the 80s cult film, Earth Girls Are Easy. Right?
“Pretty Girls” starts off with I-G-G-Y arriving on Earth in Britney Spears’ pool, looking fierce in her silver intergalactic outfit and skyscraper beehive. After a quick Valley Girl couture makeover, the duo ride top down telling the world exactly how pretty they are.
The Camerdon Duddy-directed clip features both ladies showing off their acting skills. Not surprisingly, it’s a bit awkward and unnecessary, but fun to see, in a hate-watching sort of way. Check out the video below. It’s not a bad clip, but it still doesn’t endear me to the song yet. I’m a little worried this will never grow on me.
