In: Donovan, Music

Do you have erythrophobia, the irrational fear of the color red? If so, I highly recommend not watching the new video from The Veronicas. It’s crimson realness all over the place. With that being said, I love the visual and think it’s one of their best.

In My Blood” is the first taste off the twin sisters’ forthcoming fourth studio album, due out in November. About their new single, Lisa and Jessica Origliasso reveal “It’s that elated, euphoric feeling of love at first sight. I was going through something at the time I wanted to capture. Love and adrenaline are rushing through your blood. It’s like a chemical injection. You’ve instantly connected with someone. You’re knocked out by this person.”

Check out the music video below directed by Sasha Samsonova. It initially premiered on The Voice Australia just a couple of days ago.

What’s a “L.A.N.C.E” you ask? It’s “Lyin’ Ass N—– Cheating Everyday.” These girls, assembled by Kelly Rowland, aren’t playing and mean business.

The new girl group, comprised of Shyann Roberts, Kristal Lyndriette, Brienna DeVlugt, Ashly Williams and Gabrielle Carreiro, just released the music video for their sassy debut single. They’re shown chillin’ at some spacious loft with a bunch of dudes. Before you know, they’re showing off some old school chair choreography.

Check out the visual below. The track doesn’t immediately grab you, but the clip definitely helps.

The last time Rihanna teamed up with Sia, the massive hit “Diamonds” was born. The two singers reunite for the potential new smash, “Sledgehammer.” And no, it’s not a cover of Fifth Harmony’s underrated single. Instead, it’s an original composition for the Star Trek: Beyond soundtrack.

Reportedly, the track will play during the credits of the Justin Lin-directed film. It’s absolutely perfect for the sequel. It’s epic, dramatic and soaring. If this doesn’t do damage on radio and on the charts, I’ll be utterly shocked.

You’re just another brick and I’m a sledgehammer…”, RiRi sings in the chorus. And that lyric couldn’t be more true. With “Work,” “Needed Me” and the Calvin Harris and Drake collabos “This Is What You Came For” and “Too Good” respectively, Rihanna is certainly having a sensational year.

Check out her latest below and share your thoughts after. Be sure to also watch the newly-released Star Trek: Beyond trailer which features the RiRi track.

After Madonna paid tribute to Prince at the Billboard Awards, BET took to social media to throw shade at her performance. The network promised a much better tribute to The Purple One at the 2016 BET Awards. In terms of sheer numbers, it bested the Billboards with a whopping five separate tribute performances. If quantity trumps quality, they certainly won.

The Roots, Jennifer Hudson, Maxwell, Erykah Badu, Tori Kelly, Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae and longtime Prince collaborator Sheila E were some of those who took to the stage to cover their favorite Prince track. Hudson singing “Purple Rain” and Maxwell’s seductive rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U” were a couple of my highlights.

For me though, Sheila E stole the show. Perhaps it was due to the fact she had the closest relationship to the legendary singer. During her medley, she performed “Erotic City,” “U Got The Look” and her own hits “A Love Bizarre” and “The Glamorous Life.” Check out all the performances below and weigh in on which ones were your favorites afterward.

What were you up to when you were fifteen? Probably not being a rising pop star with a couple of club anthems under your belt. British singer Jasmine Thompson has achieved impressive things at such a young age. Her future is certainly a bright one.

In the past, the 15-year-old has teamed up with Robin Schulz, The Six and Felix Jaehn for killer tracks. Her latest collaboration finds her with French producer HUGEL. “Where We Belong” is a disco-tinged club banger primed to do major damage this summer. Watch the recently-released clip below.

People certainly deal with breakups in different ways. While Taylor Swift has already moved on and started canoodling with Tom Hiddleston, Calvin Harris is focusing on his music and posing in Speedos with his boys. I kinda like the way the Scottish DJ thinks 😉

While his Rihanna-assisted “This Is What You Came For” is still gaining momentum, Harris has unleashed a new track. Once again, he finds himself working with Dizzee Rascal. Their previous collabos include “Dance Wiv Me,” “Holiday” and “Here 2 China.”

Hype” certainly lives up to its title. The 31-year-old English rapper is in fine form over Harris’ signature beats. The single marks Rascal’s first single since “Love This Town,” released in 2013.

Check out the new track below, along with the Instagram photo of Calvin hanging out with his squad. From the looks of it, Harris loves to have his nipples pinched. Someone has a nip fetish 😉

Just last week, Christina Aguilera released her powerful new ballad “Change.” Given the recent events that took place in Orlando, the poignant lyrics really hit home. It’s hard not to get a little emotional as X-tina belts it out.

The 35-year-old entertainer dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform her charity single live for the first time. She is donating 100% of the song’s proceeds for the next three months to the National Compassion Fund to directly benefit the Orlando shooting victims and their families

As always, Aguilera delivers a stellar performance. Check it out below.

Kelly Rowland scoured the country for talented young ladies to compete for a spot in a new girl group. Previously known as Chasing Destiny– the name of the BET reality series where they were formed- Rowland’s new girl group has unveiled its official name. Shyann Roberts, Kristal Lyndriette, Brienna DeVlugt, Ashly Williams and Gabrielle Carreiro are now officially called June’s Diary. Cute name.

The new group also shared its official debut single about to impact urban radio. “L.A.N.C.E.” is a sassy single where the ladies declare they deserve better. Think of it as a more ‘real’ “No Scrubs.” In case you were wondering what the acronym stands for, it’s “Lyin’ Ass N—– Cheating Everyday.” These girls aren’t playin’ 😉

Give their debut single a listen. Personally, I much prefer a buzz single they shared just a couple of weeks ago titled “All Of Us.” You can check that out as well below.
