Jennifer Lopez following in Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey’s Las Vegas footsteps isn’t shocking news. Word of her possible residency first surfaced last year. The 45-year-old diva made it official this week with a video announcement.
“I’ve been preparing for this moment my entire life,” adding, “The show is going to be a multifaceted high energy Jenny from the Block party, mixing all aspects of what my fans and I love – Dance, Hip Hop, Latin and Pop. It’s going to be the show I’ve always dreamt of creating.”
Lopez’s stint at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS Theater begins on January 20, 2016. American Express cardholders can purchase pre-sale tickets beginning on May 13, and the rest of the public can buy seats, starting May 16. Tickets range from $59 to $219. As of now, only 20 concert dates have been announced. No word if more dates will follow.
Check out the video below to get a sense of what to expect with J. Lo’s high-energy show.
Mikky Ekko burst onto the scene when Rihanna featured him on her smash hit “Stay.” Since his splashy debut, he’s worked with David Guetta, French Montana and others but nothing has come close. Perhaps his luck will change with his collaboration with Giorgio Moroder.
The legendary Italian producer tapped the 30-year-old for “Don’t Let Go” off his forthcoming Deja Vu album. It’s not another disco-tinged production, but it does have club-ready beats. Ekko’s dark vocals give the banger a haunting vibe.
The only remaining track off Moroder’s LP that I haven’t heard yet and am extremely curious about, is his work with Foxes. I have a good feeling about that one. Until that one arrives, give his Ekko collabo a listen below.
Well, that was fast. Just hours after Leona Lewis debuted the music video for her new single “Fire (Under My Feet),” the 30-year-old singer unleashes a killer dance remix. If the soulful Adele-esque vibe of her latest wasn’t to your liking, and you longed for her electronic sound during her underrated Glassheart era, you’re in luck. Dan Hardingham aka Endor elevates the soul-pop track into a potential dance anthem.
While I liked the original composition, I have to say I’m already obsessed with the dance remix. This could easily do some damage on Billboard’s Club/Dance chart. Put your sluttiest tank and dancing shoes on and give the dance overhaul a listen below.
If not for the silly rule that song covers aren’t eligible for Oscars, I have no doubt Sia’s rendition of the 60s classic “California Dreamin‘” would be in contention. It’s so good. The Aussie recorded the track for The Rock’s upcoming disaster film, San Andreas. Colton Haynes, Carla Gugino and Kylie Minogue also appear in the movie.
The orchestral arrangement along with Sia’s vocals transform The Mamas & The Papas track into an epic haunting number. It’s chillingly beautiful. Don’t take my word for it, give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.
Just before Mother’s Day, Ed Sheeran released his latest music video, “Photograph.” The clip which features footage of the 24-year-old’s childhood, no doubt made his mama tear up on the holiday.
As you’d expect, Sheeran was an adorable baby and toddler and like many of us experienced an awkward stage. Just look at the photo above. LOL.
Seriously though, it’s a cute clip that illustrates Ed’s desire to become a musician. Dude had music in his blood from the get-go. Little did people walking by on street know, that the redheaded kid busking would one day be selling out arenas.
Check out the Emil Nava-directed clip below. Not sure exactly what he directed but he gets credit nonetheless.
Leona Lewis first teased “Fire (Under My Feet)” months ago. At long last, the 30-year-old singer debuts the full version. The track is the lead single off the X Factor winner’s forthcoming fifth studio album, I Am.
“Fire (Under My Feet)” is a soulful gospel-tinged track very reminiscent of Adele during her 21 era, specifically “Rolling In The Deep.” It’s quite good actually.
The accompanying clip is, however, on the simplistic side and a bit underwhelming. The Declan Whitebloom-directed vid features Leona singing in a studio while different individuals march to the proverbial beat of their own drum. Watch it below.
I’m kinda obsessed with this right now and can’t get enough.
English singer and songwriter Jasmine Thompson originally recorded a cover of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” a couple of years ago. Her rendition cracked the UK Top 40. It’s shocking how much she sounds like Ellie Goulding.
German producer Felix Jaehn has given her cover new life and transformed into a slinky chill dance jam. I fully expect with this makeover, it’ll become an even bigger hit than previously. Check out the cute clip below.
These days, Taylor Swift makes headlines more for the group of girls she hangs out with, instead of her love life. Naturally, like many times previously, she’s using her personal life as inspiration for her new music video.
The visual for “Bad Blood” won’t debut until the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May 17, but anticipation is already quite feverish. The clip will showcase a star-studded group of ladies including Zendaya, Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Hayley Williams, Lily Aldridge and many more.
“The never-before-seen video includes multiple starring roles played by a cast of Golden Globe winners, Emmy winners, Grammy winners, an Oscar nominee, blockbuster movie stars, as well as both new and iconic supermodels.” – Press Release
With Taylor reuniting with her “Blank Space” director, Joseph Khan, for this new clip, you just know it’s going to be epic. Check out some of the Sin City-like posters below introducing the characters Swift and company will play. Tay’s alter ego is ‘Catastrophe.’
