Florence + The Machine have just released the music video for “Breath of Life,” the epic theme song on the soundtrack of the highly anticipated film, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ We’ve got your first look at the video bleow!

As I mentioned, the song is pretty epic and I can totally see it getting nominated for an Academy Award. The song was apparently inspired by Charlize Theron’s character Queen Ravenna. When you listen to the lyrics, that totally makes sense. The video shows lead singer Florence Welch, accompanied by a choir and orchestra, as they record the song. Inter-spliced are clips from the movie, with some never before seen footage that have me even more excited for the film.

Snow White + The Huntsman hits theatres on June 1. Can’t wait! Watch the “Breath of Life” music video below.

Donovan introduced Patrick and I to The Saturdays about a year ago and I have to be honest, I never really caught on to their awesomeness until I gave their album On Your Radar a full listen. Immediately, I was hooked! These five ladies know how to bring the fierceness to their music and I am just waiting for the day they really break out in North America. With boy bands making such a big comeback in the US, it’s only a matter of time before girl groups to do the same.

The ladies recently released the video for their newest single, “30 Days” and at a first listen, I wasn’t a fan. I thought the beat and track itself was great but, the lyrics were primary at best and didn’t impress me. Thankfully, the ladies have produced a B-Side for the single’s official release and I gotta say, it’s much better than the actual single.

In “Turn Myself In,” the ladies sing out, “turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up.” This song is WAY BETTER than the actual single, “30 Days” and I am so disappointed that it’s only receiving B-Side status. This should definitely be single of their next album. The girls actually were performing this track back on their Headlines Tour. Maybe with enough of a nudge, their label will get the hint and at least give it a try. Give a listen to their new-ish track below.

Sexy Broadway star, Cheyenne Jackson has released his first music video for his debut single, “Drive” and we’ve got your first look. Actually, “Drive” is also the name of his upcoming EP due out in July.

Jackson enlisted the work of Austrian filmmaker Christian Hörlesberger for his music video, choosing to do an animated video as opposed to one featuring his pretty face. The video is actually very cool and I found myself totally captivated. It took four months to make the video and when you watch it, you’ll understand why. On top of that, the song is actually really good and I’m eager to hear what the rest of his EP will sound like.

Jackson’s EP was written with Sia Furler, Stevie Aiello, and Charlotte Sometimes, and the first two singles were produced by Thomas “Tawgs” Salter. Check out the song & video below.

Married and openly out since they arrived on the LGBT music scene, Marlee Walchuk and Tully Callender of Sugarbeach take a look at the life experiences that lead us to “love at first sight”, in their latest single, “Led Me To You”. Winners of Song of the Year for both 2010 and 2011 on the OutVoice Top 40 Charts and 3 Pride in the Arts Awards from the Stonewall Society, Sugarbeach once again endorse a positive form of activism with their newest single.

“Telling LGBT stories of love has been a focus of our music since the beginning,” says Walchuk. “We feel that although many aspects of our community are represented in the media, not nearly enough give us a glimpse of solid, loving relationships.”

Callender gives us insight to the new single. “I am so grateful for all the experiences that I had to have before I could be ready to be in this wonderful relationship. It always amazes me how many things had to line up to make sure that we met and fell in love. It was no easy feat considering I lived in Australia and Marlee lived in Canada…oh and I was straight!” Give Led Me To You a listen below.

Last night, SNL aired their season’s finale episode with a bang with the help of show veteran and alumni, Will Ferrell. Alongside Will for the evening was musical guest Usher who brought two of his new, sexy-time songs with him.

Usher’s first performance of the evening was of his newest single, “Scream.” I absolutely love this song. The lyrics are totally dirty and the beat is really great. However, I was totally disappointed that Usher only brought two male back-up singers with him and not a barrage of back-up dancers. What the hell Usher? I was so ready for a big dance show for this number and instead, I got you gyrating with your mic stand and some band hand choreo with you and your singers. He did sound great though if that counts as any sort of consolation prize.

His final performance of the night was the Diplo produced track, “Climax.” I love this song as well but I have to admit, it didn’t translate into a live performance. Usher’s falsetto wasn’t as on point as usual and his voice actually cracked in one part. But, when took off his jacket and revealed his gun show, he had all the boys and girls and the audience “climaxing.” Check out both performances from last night’s SNL below.

I LOVE this song! In this new leaked track from Kesha, the singer/songwriter pays homage to and sings about hot boys in drag in “Pretty Lady“. In the chorus, Kesha sings, “Big hair. Nice rack. High heels. Sweet ass. Boy, you’re such a pretty lady. Fake nails. Red lips. Shaking those hips. Boy, you’re such a pretty lady!”

In the bridge, the song actually features soundbites from real life drag queens which I’ve read are Lady Lloyd and Detox. The song is fun, upbeat, and super catchy. I seriously hope that it’s on her new album and that it is released as a single. The music video for this would be fabulous!

Kesha has promised that her new album will be a new genre of music she refers to as “Cock Pop“! I’m all over it! Listen to “Pretty Lady” below.

One of our favorite artists this year was Dev (who we interviewed here in Vancouver a while back) and we couldn’t be more thrilled and excited for her new self-titled MTV reality show. The trailer for ‘Dev’ has just been released and we’ve got your first look.

Dev was discovered by The Cataracs (who we also interviewed) and once they started working together, the hits started pouring out and they also become the best of friends. Dev’s been working really hard at making her dreams come true and has the support of her fiance Jimmy by her side. This past year, Dev gave birth to a new baby, and this new show documents her struggle with balancing performing and her pregnancy. The show will document an artist on the verge of superstardom…and motherhood.

The show is premiering May 23 at 11PM. Get your first look at the show below!

How cute! Just in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday, Justin Bieber decided to release a song from his upcoming ‘Believe‘ album called “Turn To You,” which he dedicated to his mother, Pattie Mallette.

The song is about the sacrifices and challenges his mom (and most moms for that matter) faced or face when they have a child. He sings about his love for her and that even though he’s all grown up now (almost), he still turns to her. The lyrics and the track are actually quite beautiful and the song itself is quite catchy. Bieber sings, “I don’t know what I’d do if you left me, so please don’t go away. Everything that you are is who I am, who I am today.”

Listen to the track below and if you can or have a mother in your life, be sure to do something special for her.
