taylor-swift-1989-song-mashup

As much as I tried to fight it, Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 has won me over. Damn the 24-year-old singer for making such extremely-listenable and catchy tracks. Naturally, since I’m now a fan of the album, I’m inclined to check out anything remotely related to it. Ergo this post.

YouTube star Sam Tsui, along with the guitar skills of Kurt Hugo Schneider, pay homage to the best-selling album by covering all the tracks in an amazing mashup. Astonishingly, they do it all in just a little over three minutes and so seamlessly. Check it out below.

After scoring six Grammy nominations including Album of the Year and Best New Artist, naturally Sam Smith would want to celebrate. The 22-year-old singer takes a break from filming emotional heart wrenching videos for more lighter fare. He just released the visual for “Like I Can,” another gem off his amazing In The Lonely Hour debut.

Directed by Sophie Muller, a dressed up Smith steps out on the town with his equally dapper mates. They start off partaking in an Italian dinner before hitting the streets of New York City, including a stop by the Brooklyn Bridge. Watch Sam and his boys down shots, climb fire escapes and dance the night away. Watch the video below.

Nicki Minaj Debuts ‘Only’ Music Video

To coincide with the European and Australian release of The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj premieres the official music video for “Only.” Minaj enlists a trio of hip-hop artists for the Dr. Luke-produced track. Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown all make cameos, but I would’ve rather had more scenes of that buff stud shown in the first few seconds of the visual. Holy woofness!!!

Nicki keeps it relatively simple and avoids anything too controversial for the video. She wears revealing black outfits, mesmerizing Drake and Wayne with her curves while her army of tough-looking females put random men in their place.

Only” has so far only peaked at #27 on the Hot 100. Maybe this clip can help bolster its chart performance. Be sure to buy The Pinkprint when it hits stores next week in North America.

If you haven’t heard her collabos with Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Jessie Ware, be sure that you do. They’re dope. Check out Nicki’s latest clip below.

Uh, oh!!! Nicki Minaj has sprung a major leak. Ahead of it’s December 15 release, several tracks off the 32-year-old femcee’s The Pinkprint have surfaced online.

Minaj reunites with Beyonce on the girl power anthem, “Feeling Myself.” The two previously collaborated on “***Flawless” remix. The rapper also calls upon Ariana Grande again, this time the “Bang Bang” duo get graphic for the sensational “Get On Your Knees.” Equally as amazing is her duet with the underrated Jessie Ware on “The Crying Game.”

If the rest of the album is anything like this trio of awesomeness, I can’t wait to purchase Nicki’s third studio album on Tuesday. Check them all out below before they get pulled.

Olly Murs and Demi Lovato find themselves on opposite sides of a brick wall in the music video for their duet “Up.” Both long to reunite and eventually do after breaking through the dividing barrier. Here’s a tip. How about using the door next time ;)

“Up” is the second single lifted off the British singer’s latest album Never Been Better which has already reached Gold status in the UK. It’ll also appear on Lovato’s special deluxe release of her album Demi. The folky pop track has quickly become a favorite of mine and I play it often during my drives and workouts. Check out the visual below.

Her Sweet Talker era started off with a bang, so to speak with the smash “Bang Bang.” However, despite numerous appearances, performances and interviews on the promotional trail, Jessie J couldn’t take “Burnin’ Up” to the same heights. And that single had an awesome clip visual to go along with it. Will she have better luck with her third single off the album?

The 26-year-old Brit premieres the clip for her latest single, “Masterpiece.” It follows Jessie hustling her way through a typical hectic day. From photoshoots, to encountering adoring fans and other duties required from today’s pop star, she navigates her way through it looking flawlessly. I’m obsessed with her black fringe jacket. Though it looks a little low budget, I kinda like the simplicity of the video. Check it out below.

Billboard Highlights The 10 Biggest Songs Of 2014

Billboard magazine revealed their year end lists for their numerous charts this week. Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” gets the honor of being named the most popular song of 2014 by the publication. It tops their prestigious Hot 100 year end list.

Joining him in the top tier are Katy Perry, Iggy Azalea, OneRepublic, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, John Legend and Ariana Grande. Probably the most shocking entry is that of Magic!. No one could’ve ever predicted a reggae jam from a white Canadian group would’ve made such an impact. Sadly, my boy Pitbull just missed the list at No. 11 with his anthem, “Timber.”

Check out the magazine’s Top 10 video countdown below which gives some fun facts about each track to make the cut. Be sure to weigh in afterward if you think Pharrell’s “Happy” deserves the crown.

2014-victorias-secret-fashion-show-performances

For the first time ever, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place in London. If this is the quality viewers can expect when the annual extravaganza leaves the United States, I pray producers never head back stateside. The 2014 edition taped at Earl’s Court in the British capital was one of the better ones in recent memory.

From the wings to segment themes, the overall production was stellar. Don’t even get me started on that runway. A-MAZ-ING!!! As much as I love their signature glittered runway, the electronic catwalk was breathtaking.

With regards to music, I much prefer it when the show uses mashups for the models to strut their stuff to instead of live performances. I can see why producers, though, enlist top recording artists. They bring in their fans who don’t typically watch the lingerie fest. With that being said, I enjoyed this year’s group. They were all fantastic and I can’t a pick a favorite one among the bunch.

Taylor Swift took to the stage twice performing “Blank Space” and the television debut of “Style.” Ed Sheeran, Hozier and Ariana Grande also sang while glamazons walked around of them. Speaking of Grande, who sang a medley of her hits, I’m a little bummed that CBS didn’t show the part when the diminutive singer was smacked by one of the VS Angels’ wings. Now, that’s must-see television. Check out all the performances below.
