kelly-rowland-beau-vallis-duet

Things on the Kelly Rowland front have been relatively quiet lately. With a recent marriage and a baby on the way, it’s totally understandable. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this new duet featuring the Destiny’s Child member.

I have no idea who Beau Vallis is, but thankful he convinced Rowland to appear on “Love Stand Still.” Apparently, Vallis is a songwriter and producer who’s worked with folks like Ludacris and Lil Wayne.

Penned by Sevyn Streeter and Eric Bellinger, “Love Stand Still” is breezy light love jam. It’s an easy listen but highly doubt it’ll become a smash hit. Stranger things have happened though, so you never know. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

It appears MTV is drunk in love with Beyonce. The 32-year-old singer leads the pack with eight nominations for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Close behind are Eminem and Iggy Azalea with seven nods apiece. Azalea and Beyonce, along with Miley Cyrus, Sia and Pharrell Williams will duke it out in Video Of The Year category. My money is on “Fancy” taking that Moonman statue.

Usher, Ariana Grande, and 5 Seconds of Summer are all confirmed to perform with additional talent being announced at a later date. The winners of the Moonmen statuettes will be revealed during the live telecast from LA.’s The Forum airing on MTV on Sunday, August 24 at 9 p.m.

I’m ecstatic that MTV recognized Kiesza’s viral “Hideaway” clip for its choreography. However, I don’t see her winning given that Sia is also included in this category. There’s no way she’s losing. Maddie Ziegler’s dancing in “Chandelier” is absolutely mesmerizing. Props to Sam Smith and Fifth Harmony for scoring nods as well. Check out all the
nominations below.

Nick & Knight Debut ‘One More Time’

In 2011, New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys formed a super group, NKOTBSB, and released an album. Fast forward a couple of years later and two members from each boy band have joined forces for a new musical act. Nick Carter and Jordan Knight are taking a break from their boys to form Nick & Knight. Guess these boys really connected while on tour together.

The boys premiered their debut single titled “One More Time” on Ryan Seacrest today. The track is a breezy pop jam. It’s the lead cut off their debut album out this September in conjunction with a tour. Nick & Knight will perform 39 shows starting in Nashville on September 15 and ending in Calgary, Alberta on November 22. Give their collaboration a listen below. It’s very Maroon 5-lite in my opinion.

paris-hilton-come-alive-music-video

After releasing teasers and preview pics, Paris Hilton finally unveiled the official music video for “Come Alive.” Ever wonder what goes on in that pretty little blond head of hers? Wonder no more. The 33-year-old heiress invites her fans to take a peak into her magical world filled with unicorns, rainbows, flowers and cotton candy clouds. Here’s what Hilton said about the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip.

“It’s all about love and how it makes you feel alive. So when I was coming up with the concept for the music video, I wanted it to be something that was very magical, ethereal, just very fantasy like, that’s why I wanted to have a unicorn in it because I just think they’re such beautiful, magical creatures,” – Paris Hilton told E!

“Come Alive” serves as the latest single off Hilton’s upcoming sophomore album, which is scheduled for release later this year via Young Money Records. Watch Paris channel her inner Victoria’s Secret Angel below complete with feathery wings and *gasp* bangs. Be prepared for a sparkly affair. For me, it’s a poor man’s mashup of Rihanna’s “Only Girl In The World” and Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.”

Things on the Anne Hathaway front have been relatively quiet lately. Wonder what the Academy Award-winning actress has been up to? It appears donning drag and pretending to be a musician.

Hathaway, along with Brie Larson and Kristen Stewart star in Jenny Lewis’ “Just One Of The Guys” music video. The three wear white suits before taking on bro personas in track suits and baseball caps. The Beck-produced single is off Lewis’ forthcoming studio album Voyager. Give the video a look below.

alex-and-sierra-its-about-us

Not loving Alex & Sierra’s debut single “Scarecrow?” Truthfully, it’s alright, but since I adore the X Factor act so much, I’ve supported it.

Little Did You Know,” on the other hand is simply sensational. The stripped-down ballad is pure money and absolutely everything you loved about the duo on the FOX show. It reminds me a lot of their “Say Something” performance. Sierra’s vocals are heavenly while Alex’s sexy rasp perfectly contrast and complement his love’s voice.

I can see why Columbia Records chose “Scarecrow” as the act’s debut single. It’s uptempo and has that pop-folk thing that’s really hot these days. Sadly, the lead cut isn’t doing much damage on the charts or on radio.

Hopefully, “Little Did You Know” gets an official release complete with an accompanying video. Right now, it appears it might be just a buzz single. If you pre-order their forthcoming album, It’s About Us out October 7, “Little Did I Know” will download instantly. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

brandy-magic-coldplay-cover

Who knew Brandy was such a Coldplay fan? The 35-year-old singer gives the band’s track, “Magic,” a soulful R&B makeover. The result is something truly, excuse the pun, magical.

I forgot how gifted a vocalist the former Moesha actress is. It’s clear, Brandy took this song cover seriously given that she took the time to record a studio version. Hopefully, this is a sign of new music to come from Brandy.

If a new album is on the way, it’s probably going to be on the independent front. Brandy’s last studio album, Two Eleven, performed so abysmally, both Epic Records and RCA dropped her from their respective rosters. Girl needs to deliver a hit LP and make her former bosses regret ever doubting her ability for a comeback. She’s too good to just give up. Brandy FTW. Give her cover of “Magic” a listen below.

ting-tings-wrong-club

The Ting Tings burst on the scene with their be wicked debut, We Started Nothing back in 2008. That album spawned numerous hits including “”That’s Not My Name,”"Great DJ” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go.” The English band returned a couple years later but with a less successful effort even though scoring a moderate hit with “Hands.” They’re back and better than ever with the lead cut off their forthcoming third studio album, Super Critical.

Ditching their indie rock pop vibe, the Ting Tings have opted for a more commercial disco sound. The dance funk “Wrong Club” is sensational. I immediately loved it after hearing it once. For the accompanying visual, frontwoman Katie White dances solo in an abandoned warehouse in Paris with spotlights flashing around her. The Lisa Paclet-directed video is very reminiscent of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” video. Check out the video below.
