Typically, gospel music isn’t my first pick of genre to listen to. However, I find myself a convert thanks to “Fire” by Michelle Williams. It makes me wanna twerk for Jesus.

The 33-year-old debuted the scorching track last Fall but took her sweet ass time to drop the video. If Beyonce can film an accompanying visual for every track off her album in secrecy, I think Michelle can squeeze some time in between her hectic schedule for a music video ;)

Directed by Derek Blanks, Michelle serves holy fierceness while whipping hair in front of a red backdrop. Watch Williams get fiery below.

ed-sheeran-all-in-the-stars-video

Ed Sheeran is currently riding high with his Justin Timberlake-sounding single “Sing” which is currently sitting at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 23-year-old English singer-songwriter returns to familiar ground with his contribution to the The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack.

All Of The Stars” is a sparse emotional ballad that Sheeran’s fan expect from him. The accompanying visual is equally as moving with its simplicity. Fans were asked to send messages of encouragement via Instagram. More than 5000 were collected over a three-day period and placed in a collage for the video. Footage from the film are interspersed in between the messages with Sheeran making a brief cameo at the end. Check out the clip below.

solange-knowles-chromeo-duet

Solange Knowles has reteamed with Chromeo for another sexy collabo. Bey’s little sister hooked up with the Canadian duo back in 2010 for the wickedly awesome, “When The Night Falls.” I absolutely love that track which is why it’s still on heavy rotation on my playlist.

Once again, they’ve gone retro for their duet. This time, however, they’ve experimented with more of an 80s sound. The mid-tempo “Lost on the Way Home” is off Chromeo’s new album, White Women, which hits stores next week. It’s one of the many highlights on the duo’s new effort. Give it a listen below.

“After working with Chromeo on ‘When the Night Falls’ from the last album, I was super excited to get back in and work together,” Solange wrote on her website. “They came down to Long Island to this house where I was working on my album late last summer, and they played me a few tracks. When they played the instrumental for ‘Lost on the Way,’ I immediately knew that was the jam.”

million-dollar-dream-iggy-azalea

The last time Iggy Azalea experimented with Bollywood, the masterpiece that is “Bounce” was born. The Aussie MC heads back to the Far East for another bhangra-centric track. This time it’s for the soundtrack for Million Dollar Arm starring Jon Hamm. “Million Dollar Dream” was composed by A.R. Rahman and features Bollywood singer Sukhwinder Singh on the hook.

Is it me or does it seem that Azalea is everywhere these days? Her collaboration, “Problem,” with Ariana Grande stormed the charts this week, debuting at No. 3. She occupies another spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with her addictive duet “Fancy” with Charli XCX. The 23-year-old also has a highly-anticipated collabo with Jennifer Lopez on the way.

On the cinema front, her cover of the Diana Ross classic “I’m Coming Out” is featured in the Cameron Diaz hit, The Other Woman. I’m ecstatic that Iggy is finally getting the mainstream attention she deserves. Iggy FTW!!!

Check out “Million Dollar Dream” below. Keeping in line with the Disney film, it’s full of inspirational lyrics about achieving dreams. It’s another winner from the female MC.

michael-jackson-loving-you

Michael Jackson’s second posthumous album hits stores next week on May 13. We’ve already heard the title track and his sizzling duet with Justin Timberlake on “Love Never Felt So Good.” Today, we’re not just treated to one, but two more tracks off Xscape.

First we have “Blue Gangsta” which was originally recorded in 1998 and leaked in 2010. It’s received a production makeover by Timbaland for Xscape.

The second, my favorite out of the two, is “Loving You.” The retro-tinged song was recorded during MJ’s Bad era and written by Jackson himself. J-Roc along with Timbaland update the track with some contemporary production.

Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterward on which one is your favorite. So far, Jackson’s duet with Timberlake is the best (IMHO) among the new offerings.

Shakira Premieres Dare (La La La) Music Video

In: Donovan, Music
shakira-dare-la-la-la-music-video

Dare (La La La)” was originally intended to surface two years ago, but Shakira pushed it back due to her pregnancy. It was then initially picked to be the lead single off her self-titled album but was again delayed in favor of the Rihanna-assisted “Can’t Remember To Forget You” which peaked at No. 18. With “Empire” also doing mediocrely, the Colombian singer is keeping her fingers crossed her latest does the trick.

“Dare (La La La)” has a lot going for it. Not only does it come from the hitmaker that is Dr. Luke but it’s received tonnes of free publicity thanks that Activia commercial airing everywhere. In addition, it’s included on the 2014 FIFA World Cup album.

The music video is sadly nothing to write home about. The catchy track definitely deserves better. Given that portions of this was filmed over two years ago when Shakira was in Lisbon, I was hoping The Voice singer would start from scratch. Check it out below.

latoya-jackson-rupaul

What do you get when you put two fabulous drag queens together? Sorry LaToya ;) A deliciously campy club banger of course.

RuPaul just released the deluxe version of her hit LP, Born Naked. The legendary drag queen’s latest studio effort is the most successful of her career. One of the new tracks on the deluxe version is a collaboration with LaToya J.

The two artists serve up major attitude and sass while European dance beats and glitzy synthesizers play in the background. These two make beautifully ferosh music together. Check it out below.

lana-del-rey-west-coast-video

Lana Del Rey’s latest offering stormed the charts thanks to her best-ever debut sales frame: 118,000 downloads sold. “West Coast” entered the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 17. Since then, it’s faltered and hasn’t reached the heights of “Summertime Sadness.” Hopefully with a beautifully shot visual, the single will receive a second life.

In true Del Rey fashion, her surf-rock ballad gets a mysterious video. The black and white hazy clip features the 27-year-old singer frolicking on the beach with some bad boys. There’s some pretty cool artful shots of California in the mix as well. Check out the clip below.
