There was a time when having Chris Brown as a featured artist would guarantee results. Lately however, Brown has been more of a curse than a blessing. Both Tinashe and Rita Ora saw their singles “Player” and “Body On Me” go nowhere despite his help. Here’s hoping Zendaya has better luck with Breezy by her side.

The 19-year-old just dropped her new single titled “Something New.” It’s her first offering since switching labels from Disney to Republic.

While I love her usage of TLC’s iconic hit “Creep,” the hook isn’t catchy enough for me. It should do well on urban radio, but not sure it has pop crossover potential. Don’t get me wrong. I like it but I just don’t love it. Maybe it’s a grower. Personally her underrated single “Replay” was much better.

Here’s hoping Zendaya’s team crafts a killer music video to elevate the track. Give the track a listen below.

With such universal praise for Grease Live!, FOX must be feeling a little pressure for their next big musical production. Unlike Grease though, the Rocky Horror Picture remake won’t be a live staging. Reportedly, this decision was made to attract top talent who were fearful of performing without the safety net of retakes.

Personally, I think there’s more pressure this way. At least if it’s live you can chalk it up to nerves, technical issues etc… With it being taped, I guarantee critics and viewers alike will be much more critical.

Christina Milian is the latest to join the project. Find out what her role is below.

Secret Love Song” is the third single off their third studio album, Get Weird. The emotional power ballad has already cracked the Top 5 in the UK but with a music video now released, it might even reach higher and perhaps do some damage in North America.

For the Fran Borin-directed clip, the fierce foursome walk the London streets along the Thames river while rocking out some serious winter fashion. Perrie Edwards’ coat is all kinds of fabulousness. If I was a girl, I’d want that in my closet.

Sadly though, Jason Derulo never shares a scene with the ladies. Instead, he’s relegated to dancing by himself in his apartment. Love Little Mix, but I was expecting more from the clip. They look great but it’s a bit lazy. Check out the video below and see if you agree with my assessment.

Despite not having dropped her sophomore album, Joyride, yet, Tinashe hits the road at the end of the month for her Joyride World Tour. Is she planning a surprise LP release before the tour start date of February 28? Fingers crossed. If for some reason it doesn’t drop, at least, the 22-year-old singer has been debuting new tracks.

“Ride of Your Life” is the latest offering off her forthcoming album. Unlike what the title suggests, this ride isn’t a crazy thrill ride. Rather, it’s a slinky sublime trip. Her signature breathy vocals are butter over the seductive urban beat. Give the Metro Boomin-produced track a listen below.

February is going to be a busy month for Lady Gaga. In addition to her David Bowie tribute at the Grammys and performing at the 88th Academy Awards, the 29-year-old singer will also perform at Super Bowl 50. She’s been tapped to perform the National Anthem.

Mother Monster follows in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks to name a few. Idina Menzel sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at last year’s game.

Gaga is the latest big name scheduled to perform this Sunday. Beyonce and Bruno Mars will join Coldplay during the Half-Time Show. Sunday night is going to be epic.

Do you think Gaga is a good choice to sing the National Anthem? I think so. Given that she slayed her Sound of Music tribute at the Oscars last year, she should have no problem this Sunday. Weigh in below.

Usher is back and he’s got something to say. The 37-year-old tackles the sensitive topic of police brutality with his new song “Chains.” Nas and Bibi Bourelly assist the Grammy-winning singer with his message.

“As artists we have to use our platform to spread awareness and inspire action,” Usher tweeted. “Chains” is my way of spreading light on the issues we face in our social injustice system.”

The black and white clip directed by Ben Louis Nicholas features powerful heavy imagery. Handcuffs and guns are shown crumbling to the ground, people praying in church and more. Usher also gets in on the action. He’s chased by the popo and later realizes he died at their hands. Watch the extremely moving clip below.

lady-gaga-david-bowie-grammy-tribute

For weeks, rumors of this very thing were circulating. Turns out, they were all true. Lady Gaga is officially set to pay homage to David Bowie at the forthcoming 2016 Grammys ceremony. The executive producer of the telecast confirmed the tribute.

“We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction,” revealed executive producer of the Grammy Awards Ken Ehrlich. “We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it.”

Nile Rodgers who executive produced Bowie’s 1983 album, Let’s Dance, will be the musical director for the tribute. Rodgers and Gaga joining forces for Bowie… this is a must-see event.

Mother Monster has made it no secret about her adoration for the late singer. She’s perfect for this. Watch it all go down on Monday, February 15 on CBS.

After spending three weeks on top, “Sorry” relinquishes its hold on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. No need to shed a tear for Justin Bieber though, his other single, “Love Yourself,” rises to the pole position.

The Ed Sheeran-penned ballad rises from 2-1. This not only marks the Bieb’s third chart-topper from his Purpose album, but third one of his career.

The 21-year-old Canadian singer is only the 12th act to replace himself at No. 1. The Weeknd recently achieved the same feat when “The Hills” replaced “Can’t Feel My Face.” Other artists part of this exclusive club include Taylor Swift, Boyz II Men, Usher, Ja Rule, the Beatles and Nelly to name a few.
