Try as she might, but I don’t think Kiesza will ever conjure up the same magic she did in her “Hideaway” video IMHO. It was that amazing. I will say though, the 25-year-old Canadian singer’s latest effort is a valiant one.

Whether intentional or not, I appreciate the homage to Janet Jackson circa Control era in her “No Enemiesz” music video. Like Janet did in her “Pleasure Principle” visual, Kiesza enters a stylish loft to dance her little heart out. However, in the latter’s version she’s joined by other dancers who magically appear after removing articles of clothing. No lie ;) Side note: How sick are those glittered kicks above?

Sound of a Woman was released this week on October 21, and features songs like “Giant In My Heart,” “Losin’ My Mind” and her breakthrough hit “Hideaway.” Check out her new clip directed by Syndrome below.

Bette Midler pays homage to girl groups on her upcoming album It’s The Girls due in stores November 4. The 68-year-old icon covers classics made famous by The Shirelles, The Supremes and Martha and the Vandellas to name a few.

We’ve heard her pretty faithful rendition of The Ronettes‘ ’60s classic “Be My Baby” already. Today, we get to check out her take on “Waterfalls.” Why did she pick the TLC smash to cover? Here’s what she recently told Billboard magazine.

“‘Waterfalls’ was a heartbreaker, especially if you were a mom, and it had a big effect on me,” Midler said. “I never thought I would have the nerve to sing it, but we had an idea for it that works, and I am so glad I took the chance.”

Waterfalls” is by far the most contemporary song appearing on her latest LP. Unfortunately, she didn’t include any Destiny’s Child or Spice Girls in the mix. Even more unfortunate, Midler opts out of doing Left Eye’s rap on her cover. BOO!!!. I’d kill to see the Divine Miss M rap her little heart out. Check out the track below which premiered over at The Advocate.

Rita Ora Is ‘Grateful’ On New Ballad

Is Rita Ora making herself over as an adult contemporary artist? If so, she certainly has the pipes for it. The British Rihanna premiered a track titled “Grateful” on Billboard.com. The ballad was specifically recorded for the soundtrack of the upcoming romantic-drama Beyond The Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker.

The soaring composition was written by none other than Diane Warren. If you’re going to take on an epic ballad for a movie, Warren is your woman. The 58-year-old legendary songwriter has been nominated a whopping six times for an Academy Award. “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” “How Do I Live” and “Because You Loved Me” are just a few examples.

Surprisingly, she’s never grabbed the big prize. She’s the Susan Lucci of the original song category at the Oscars. Perhaps Rita is her ticket to Oscar glory. Give Ora and Warren’s collaboration a listen below.

“I’m so proud of it and Rita Ora did an amazing vocal,” said Warren. “I am so happy she had me write this song. I think it can be a career song for her. It shows a whole different side to her and I’m hoping we get to hear it all over the radio and see her sing it on the Oscars next year!”

Based on the fans of Swedish singer Ji Nilsson, the answer is ‘yes.’ To be fair, if any plagiarism took place, that would fall on Ryan Tedder and Benny Bianco’s shoulders since they produced Gwen Stefani’s “Baby Don’t Lie.”

Nilsson’s devoted following quickly pointed out the similarities between Stefani’s comeback single and Ji’s “Heartbreakfree.” To be fair, the production on both do sound quite alike.

The Scandinavian singer is taking everything in stride and not being bitter about it. At least not on Twitter she isn’t. She retweeted a supporter’s comment about imitation being the greatest form of flattery. She also sent a series of Tweets declaring her love for several No Doubt tracks before adding, “Thanks for all the <3 and support! I’m super happy that a lot of people are discovering my music!” Check out both videos below and see if Nilsson’s fans’ allegations have any merits.

jessica-lange-gods-and-monsters-cover

Jessica Lange’s much-hyped cover of Lana Del Rey didn’t disappoint. Her alter ego Elsa Mars performed “Gods And Monsters” on last night’s Halloween-themed episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Lange served major Marlene Dietrich diva realness during her performance. She can definitely rock that feather boa like no other. Ryan Murphy wasn’t exaggerating with his description teasing the number.

As glamorous as it was, I’m still giving the edge to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal” cover on episode two. Watching one twin providing background vocals for the other was everything. Do you agree? If you missed last night’s episode, Lange’s number was a definite must-watch. If you caught it, why not watch it again below. Enjoy.

As many of you know, I’m inexplicably infatuated with Mr. Worldwide. Maybe one day, I can get to the bottom of it. Until then, expect to see anything Pitbull-related on the site.

The 33-year-old rapper is usually seen accompanied by scantily-clad women in his music videos. He trades in his trademark video hos in his latest visual for some adorable animated penguins. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private to be exact.

Celebrate” is a family-friendly pop jam for the new animated movie Penguins of Madagascar. It’ll also appear on his forthcoming album Globalization due out November 24. As you’d expect, the video is a tad cheesy but appropriate given its purpose. With that said, I can still see it being a club anthem at every club down on South Beach. Give it a view below.

After seeing his sexy spread in Interview magazine, I could eat him up. However, in Rob Cantor’s genius of a song titled “Shia LaBeouf,” it’s the 28-year-old actor who’s the meat eater.

Cantor penned the track back in 2012 portraying the Fury actor as a cannibal which actually tells the true story of an actual cannibal. The original composition spread like fire on the Internet, inspiring numerous memes and earned accolades from Hollywood. Rob Lowe tweeted, “This song is absolute genius. Enjoy.” earlier this year.

With the help of The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and a bunch of shirtless male dancers, the song has come to life in a new video. Check out the epicness below where Shia makes a cameo.
