Transitioning to adulthood is challenging for any child star. Some come balls out (literally), letting everything all hang out as part of their reinvention. Selena Gomez has actually done it without going the hoochie route. Her new single shows off a mature sexy sound without coming off at all trashy.

Good For You” is her first new offering since leaving Disney’s Hollywood Records. It’s the lead cut off her forthcoming studio album due out later this year via Interscope Records. The A$AP Rocky-assisted track is a perfect blend of R&B and slinky electro pop. It’s quite refreshing. Give it a listen below.

Remember when Jennifer Lopez declared her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing?” No one actually believed that, right?

Tori Kelly echos that same sentiment with her latest gem off her forthcoming debut album, Unbreakable Smile. The 22-year-old American Idol reject advises ballers that money isn’t the way to win someone’s heart on “Expensive.” The track also features vocals from Daye Jack.

If you’re still craving more from the talented singer/songwriter, she slows it down for “Falling Slow.” Kelly promises not to break her lovers heart and make falling in love with her worth it on the Max Martin co-produced track.

Both are sensational and potential winners for Kelly. I firmly believe Tori is on the cusp of being the next big thing. Give both a listen below.

Pitbull & Chris Brown Have ‘Fun’ In Miami

As much as I love Pitbull, the opposite can be said for Chris Brown. When I initially heard their collaboration, I didn’t want to like it due to Brown’s participation. But after months of hearing it and being in Miami just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve come fully around to “Fun.” It’s supremely catchy and excuse the pun, but fun.

Not surprisingly, for the accompanying music video, the two headed to Mr. Worldwide’s favorite city, Miami. The Gil Green-directed visual has no real narrative. Pitbull and Breezy just live it up in South Beach, in mansions and on yachts with a bevy of video vixens. That pretty much sums up my weekend a couple of weeks ago in the Magic City minus the hookers ;) Check out the clip below.

Before I get to the performances, can I just quickly gush over Adam Lambert. The American Idol Season 8 runner-up is looking pretty fiiiiiine these days. I’ve always loved him for his vocal prowess, but recently I find myself noticing him for his physical assets as well. Dude oozed sex throughout the following performances.

As part of Good Morning America’s Summer Series, the 33-year-old singer belted out three tunes. Two of which from his new album, “Ghost Town,” “The Original High,” and his biggest smash to date, “Whataya Want From Me.” The crowd ate up everything Lambert was serving.

Check out the videos below. As always, Adam was on point with his vocals. Absolute slayage!!!

Hilary Duff has been working like a hooker this week, promoting her new album Breathe In. Breathe Out. which in stores now. The 27-year-old entertainer has been on any talk show that’ll have her to perform “Sparks.” Based on early reviews, the Duff should be pleased with the positive feedback she’s getting for her fifth studio album.

Taking a page from Miley Cyrus’ Backyard Sessions, Hilary delivers a fantastic acoustic performance of “Tattoo.” She absolutely slays it on the Ed Sheeran-penned ballad. She sounds sensational. I don’t think I recall the Younger actress sounding better. Check out the stripped-down rendition below.

robyn-la-bagatelle-magique

It’s been five long years since Robyn released a solo album. Why you gotta do us like that, Robyn? Such a beyotch ;)

The 36-year-old Swede satiated fans last year by dropping an EP titled Do It Again with Röyksopp. Though it’s still not yet a new solo album, she’s back with brand new music.

Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique is comprised of Robyn, Markus Jägerstedt, and the late Christian Falk. “Love Is Free” is the first taste off their forthcoming mini-album. The track is a love letter to early 90s house music which features New York-based Mad Decent-affiliated Maluca.

Check out “Love Is Free” below which premiered on BBC Radio 1 with DJ Annie Mac. The euphoric offering is primed to dominate this Summer. It’s another winner from the Queen of Swedish pop.

Lauryn Hill Delivers Sensational Nina Simone Cover

Some of the brightest moments of her career occurred when she covered classics such “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Turn Your Lights Down Low” and the smash hit “Killing Me Softly.” The 40-year-old Grammy winner re-emerges to deliver another sensational song cover, or covers I should say.

To accompany Netflix’s upcoming Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, a number of musicians headed to the studio to honor the jazz icon. Lauryn Hill was originally set to only record two tracks but became so involved, she ended up tackling six songs.

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.” – Lauryn Hill

Joining Hill on the album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, are Jazmine Sullivan, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Common and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. What Happened, Miss Simone? will premiere on Netflix on June 26. Check out Lauryn’s cover below.

It’s the most random thing ever but wonderfully perfect at the same time. Amy Schumer is set to open for Madonna for her upcoming Rebel Heart World Tour. Sadly though, it’ll only be for her New York dates on September 16, 17 and 19. Damn lucky New Yorkers!!!

The 34-year-old comedian revealed the big news on Twitter in true Schumer fashion. She shared an adorable clip of herself singing a Madge song from her childhood, attached with the following note: “Guess who auditioned for Madonna and got the part?” Check out the clip below.
