Taylor Swift Premieres New Track For Target Commercial

In: Donovan, Music
taylor-swift-target-commercial

For Swifties who want more of their beloved idol, they’ll have to head to Target stores on October 27 to purchase the deluxe edition of 1989. The super-sized offering includes three additional songs and three songwriting voice memos that won’t be available on digital download or other stores. One of those tracks, “Never Go Out of Style,” premiered, naturally, in a new Target commercial.

Normally, we’re used to Taylor Swift bashing her exes on her tracks. Is this catchy new pop track a favorable ode to Harry Styles? T-Swizzle praises an unnamed guy for his impeccable style and slick hair. Sounds an awful lot like the One Direction singer at face value, doesn’t it? Perhaps, once all the lyrics are released, all will be revealed. In the meantime, check out the kinda adorable ad below.

Ricky Martin Rocks A Mustache For Adios Music Video

What’s better than one Ricky Martin? How about five of them? The 42-year-old Latin superstar takes on different personas in his newest video, “Adios.”

Director Ethan Ladder transports Martin to an old school speakeasy for the clip. Ricky swivels his sexy hips while scantily-clad women surround him. Truthfully, it could pass for “Livin’ La Vida Loca” Part 2. Branch out a little creatively, Ricky!!! Since the entire world knows he’s gay, how about replacing the ladies with video hos of the male variety? Right?

Check out Ricky rocking out the mustache in the video below. I have to say, he looks pretty damn fine. A little sinister but that’s how I like em ;)

Whenever Gwen Stefani enlists Pharrell Williams to produce a track, magic occurs. “Hollaback Girl” and “Wind It Up” are just two great examples. While the No Doubt frontwoman’s comeback single “Baby Don’t Lie” has divided music enthusiasts, “Spark The Fire,” produced by Pharrell, will please many of her longtime fans.

The hip hop-influenced song is very reminiscent of her earlier solo work. “It literally is the song that explains everything that’s going on in my life right now in this surreal way,” Gwen explains about the track. She shared a minute-long snippet on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM show.

In addition to teasing her new track, the 45-year-old singer premiered the music video for “Baby Don’t Lie.” It features Stefani walking through a neon graphic jungle filled with abstract and geometric shapes. Check out the Sophie Muller-directed graphic clip below, along with the preview of “Spark The Fire.”

sister-christina-like-a-virgin

Sister Christina became an Internet sensation with her rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Want To Have Fun” during the blind auditions on The Voice Italy. Week after week the singing nun wowed judges and viewers alike. It’s no wonder she ended up winning the second season of the singing competition. In a rather surprising move, Sister Cristina chose Madonna’s then controversial hit, “Like A Virgin” as her first single.

“I chose ‘Like a Virgin’ because I wanted it to bear witness to God’s power to move all things!” explained Cristina in a statement. “I see it as GOD’S TOUCH, when he called me to a new life, giving me back the purity and dignity of being his Daughter and being Loved by Him. And that’s the way it will be till the end of time!”

Sister Cristina’s debut album will feature two original compositions and ten cover tracks. In addition to Madonna’s classic track, she’ll take on “Fix You” by Coldplay and the Cyndi Lauper tune “True Colors” to name a couple.

Like Madonna, Sister Cristina headed to Venice to film the video. Unlike Madge though, she keeps her habit on and doesn’t writhe sexually on a gondola. Check it out below. I have to say, I like her rendition quite a lot. Be sure to sound off afterward.

The second song off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 soundtrack just dropped and once again it features Lorde, albeit in a minor capacity. Still, someone’s using their position as soundtrack curator to their benefit ;)

The “Royals” singer previously stated she’d be rounding up artists who we haven’t heard from in a while. That certainly doesn’t apply to R&B sensation Miguel but does with The Chemical Brothers. The British duo haven’t released any material since 2010. Welcome back!!!

Like “Yellow Flicker Beat,” “This Is Not A Game” is another gloomy dark track perfectly suited for the popular film franchise. As expected, Miguel’s vocals are absolutely sublime and fantastic. Lorde sprinkles a few “there it is…” throughout the song. Give it a listen below.

taylor-swift-welcome-to-new-york

It’s not exactly “Empire State Of Mind,” but it’s another love letter to the Big Apple. Should Jay Z and Alicia Keys be worried “Welcome To New York” might replace their composition as the city’s unofficial anthem?

Taylor Swift teased her second iTunes Countdown Single early Monday morning with the full version being available October 21. Like everything these days, with exception to Beyonce’s surprise album, the track has leaked ahead of its official release date.

Welcome To New York” keeps in line with Swift’s new pop sound. Co-written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, Taylor sings about packing up and moving to New York to make her dreams come true. Like they say, if you can make there, you can make it anywhere. And she’s definitely made it.

“The first song on 1989 is a song called ‘Welcome to New York’ and I wanted to start the album with this song because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years,” Taylor says about her new song to Good Morning America

“You know, I dreamt about moving to New York. I obsessed over moving to New York and then I did it. The inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I’ve ever experienced in my life. It’s like an electric city and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities. You can kind of hear that reflected in this music and in this first song especially. This is a song I did with Ryan Tedder called ‘Welcome to New York.’”

Listen below to T-Swizzle sing about the city’s vibrancy and all the things it has to offer.

clean-bandit-real-love-video

Wisely, Clean Bandit decided to team up again with Jess Glynne. I love Glynne’s voice and have no doubt without her vocals on “Rather Be,” the track wouldn’t have become that global smash that it was. “Real Love” is off Clean Bandit’s reissue of their debut album New Eyes. Currently, the track is only slated for European release.

As opposed to their “Rather Be” video which featured a Japanese fan becoming delirious and experiencing hallucinations, the group went with a decidedly more romantic vibe for their new visual. It features various couples kissing outside the El Rey Theatre at of one of their concerts while the band performs inside.

Check out the feel-good vid below. Jack Patterson directed the clip.

Days after teasing “Together” featuring Gwen Stefani, the Scottish DJ unveils another track from his forthcoming album Motion. Calvin Harris once again teams up with Ellie Goulding whom he previously collaborated with on the smash “I Need Your Love” off his smash LP 18 Months.

What’s his new track like? Truthfully, “Outside” could easily pass for “I Need Your Love 2.0.” The EDM track doesn’t sound the same but definitely has a similar vibe. I don’t blame Harris for going down a similar path. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I will say though, it’s probably more pop-ish than the tracks Calvin has released off Motion thus far. Give it a listen below.
