Back in 2010, New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys joined forces for a joint NKOTBSB tour. Four years later, Nick Carter and Jordan Knight are taking a break from their respective groups to form Nick & Knight.

Their first single “One More Time” which surfaced weeks ago received the accompanying visual today. It’s a relatively simple concept with Carter and Knight channeling their inner Terry Richardson, photographing two ladies in an intimate situation.

The duo’s debut album hits stores on September 2 with their two-month tour kicking off a couple weeks later on September 15 in Nashville. Check out their new video below.

Beyonce goes retro in the second trailer for her forthcoming HBO special, On The Run. Mrs. Carter covers the 1966 classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in the black and white promo.

Dressed as a glamorous jazz singer, Bey serenades her hubby and touring partner, Jay-Z as he smokes a stogie. The clip then cuts to footage of the duo’s joint tour which is full of tight choreography, stunts and, naturally, hair flips.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” was penned by Sonny Bono and recorded by both Nancy Sinatra and his then-wife Cher. It’s clear, Beyonce was more inspired with the former with her rendition. Check out all three versions below and weigh on who gives a more deadlier performance.

With three singles currently on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s a no-brainer why the publication chose Ariana Grande to grace their latest issue. The 21-year-old rocks out polka dots while talking about her forthcoming album, My Everything, due in stores next week. Grande also chats about several of her role models including Madonna, Indie.Arie, Marlene Deitrich, Helena Bonham Carter and even Freddy Krueger. Random, right?

On Freddy Krueger & Jaws

“I always wanted to have face paint on or be wearing a Freddy Krueger mask, and I would carry a hockey stick around,” she describes. “For my fifth birthday party we had a Jaws theme and all my friends left crying.”

To promote her album’s release, Ariana also teased another track. “Break Your Heart” which was recorded with Childish Gambino. She shared a snippet via Instagram. Give it a listen below and read what she has to say about her other aforementioned role models.

Even in the afterlife Michael Jackson continues to make history. His visual for “A Place With No Name” became the first music video ever to premiere on Twitter. Musicians promoting their clips via the social media is nothing new, but watching them within tweets is a fairly new feature.

The video is the second single off Jackson’s critically acclaimed posthumous album, Xscape. The lead single, “Love Never Felt So Good,” became his first top ten hit in the US on the Hot 100 since 2001’s “You Rock My World.”

“A Place With No Name” was originally recorded in 1998 and updated by superproducer Stargate. Award-winning director Samuel Bayer filmed the video which features footage of the late King of Pop dancing in previously unreleased outtakes from his 1992 “In the Closet” video. Interspersed in between MJ’s moves is a couple dancing on the beach and other locations. Check out the video below.

Britney Spears “Womanizer” anyone? Everyone has a past and Iggy Azalea’s has just surfaced.

Before finding fame as a lyrical rapper, the 24-year-old Aussie was an aspiring pop tart. Her “Nothing Like Me” sounds an awful lot like “Womanizer” and accompanying video resembles “Gimme More.” Someone had a hard-on for Spears?

Azalea isn’t the first musician with an embarrassing musical past. Hardly! Just ask Katy Perry and Alanis Morrissette about their Christian and cheesy pop past respectively. Everyone has to start somewhere. Check out “Nothing Like Me” below.

For his next film, Quentin Tarantino should really consider casting Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora as his next leading ladies. These two are a deadly combo together. Bad ass bitches they are.

Azalea swaps out Clueless for Kill Bill as the inspiration for her latest clip. Iggy plays a waitress while Rita plays the girlfriend to Michael Madsen. Wielding samurai swords, the two exact revenge on him for his douchebaggery. Check out the fun clip below directed by Director X.

If I was Calvin Harris, I’d be careful and stop playing the jilted ex lover. I’m sure Ora can only take so much of her former beau’s antics. It was recently revealed that Harris stopped Ora’s scheduled performance of “I Will Never Let You Down” and took back most of the tracks he produced for Rita’s forthcoming album. One day Rita might just put that sword to good use. Lorena Bobbitt anyone ;)

Part Lost In Space. Part Barbarella. Part Star Wars. Ariana Grande’s latest video is one hundred percent pure intergalactic fun.

The 21-year-old goes full camp for the Zedd-assisted smash. How else would you describe a clip that features a torpedo-shooting bra? Katy Perry would be so proud. It also includes a white corridor Michael and Janet Jackson sashayed through in “Scream” and cheesy graphics worthy of Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again” video.

Grande plays a female heroine who takes down some grisly aliens by karate chopping them to death, freeing a motley crew of captive humans and aliens. It all ends up at a cantina worthy of a Star Wars dance party. Chris Marrs Piliero (Britney Spears‘ “I Wanna Go” & “Criminal,” Kesha‘s “Blow”) directed the clip.

“Break Free” is currently in the Billboard Hot 100 Top 20. With a new video that I fully expect to go viral, I expect a Top 10 placing on next week’s chart. Watch all the action below.

Hilary Duff Debuts Catchy ‘All About You’

In: Donovan, Music

Now this is more like it. Hilary Duff’s first attempt at a music comeback, “Chasing The Sun,” failed to chase anything. Let alone the sun. It’s doing so poorly that it appears Duff’s team has relegated the track to just a buzz single and touting “All About You” as the first official single off Duff’s forthcoming album.

While “Chasing The Sun” sounded like a poor man’s “Stars Are Blind” (Paris Hilton), “All About You” has far more potential. The Savan Kotecha, Carl Falk and Kristian Lundin-penned track features a catchy hook and killer chorus. Give it a listen below.
