The “Blurred Lines” singer has more lives than your average feral alley cat. Robin Thicke should be very thankful that people in the music industry still want to work with him after his underperforming last album, Paula. That LP posted embarrassing first week sales in the US (24,000 copies), UK (530 copies), Canada (550) and Australia (158). Thanks to Flo Rida, the 38-year-old R&B singer should find himself back on the Billboard Hot 100 once again thanks to this beyond catchy collabo.

I Don’t Like It, I Love It” is the latest cut off the rapper’s EP, My House. The 35-year-old Florida native just recently scored his tenth Top 10 Billboard hit with “G.D.F.R.” His latest feel-good jam is tailor-made for Summer listening and should do quite well on the charts and on radio.

For the accompanying clip, Flo Rida and Thicke hold a good old-fashioned block party full of dancing and hanging out with friends. It’s a simple visual but effective one for the catchy single. Check it out below.

Spike TV’s breakout hit, Lip Sync Battle, returns Thursday, July 9. The series still has plenty of big names to feature before closing out its freshman run. Among those still on deck are Iggy Azalea facing off against her fiancee Nick Young, Will Arnett versus Alison Brie and Andy Cohen battling it out with Willie Geist.

Tove Lo Debuts Stunning ‘Timebomb’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Not to be confused with Kylie Minogue’s highly-underrated “Timebomb,” this “Timebomb” is the latest off Tove Lo’s debut album, Queen of the Clouds. It’s another solid offering from the 27-year-old Swedish singer after the one-two-punch of “Habits” and “Talking Body.” Clearly, Tove is no one-hit wonder.

For her latest clip, Lo goes for a relatively simple yet emotional approach. It shows several couples showing a range of emotions on a beach, from embracing to full-on conflict. Meanwhile, Tove pops up in a black swimsuit emoting her little heart out. Check out the entertaining visual below.

Janet Jackson Debuts New Single ‘No Sleeep’

It’s official!!! Queen Janet is back to reclaim her throne. A week after announcing her Unbreakable World Tour, Janet Jackson debuts her first new single in five years.

No Sleeep” (purposely misspelled) finds the 49-year-old singer teaming up with longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. It’s a tad reminiscent of her 1993 smash hit “That’s The Way Love Goes.” Jackson seductively delivers the verses over smooth and soothing synths. It’s vintage Janet at her best. All hail the Queen of Insomnia.

“I dedicate this to My Love. https://youtu.be/v_2_VgUdeq4 #NoSL333P #ConversationsInACafe” – Janet via Twitter

The sexy R&B ballad is the lead single off her forthcoming eleventh studio album being released on her own label, Rhythm Nation Records. Hopefully, radio embraces Janet’s new material. Her comeback is long overdue. I can’t wait to check out the music video. In the meantime, check out JJ’s new single below.

Transitioning to adulthood is challenging for any child star. Some come balls out (literally), letting everything all hang out as part of their reinvention. Selena Gomez has actually done it without going the hoochie route. Her new single shows off a mature sexy sound without coming off at all trashy.

Good For You” is her first new offering since leaving Disney’s Hollywood Records. It’s the lead cut off her forthcoming studio album due out later this year via Interscope Records. The A$AP Rocky-assisted track is a perfect blend of R&B and slinky electro pop. It’s quite refreshing. Give it a listen below.

Remember when Jennifer Lopez declared her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing?” No one actually believed that, right?

Tori Kelly echos that same sentiment with her latest gem off her forthcoming debut album, Unbreakable Smile. The 22-year-old American Idol reject advises ballers that money isn’t the way to win someone’s heart on “Expensive.” The track also features vocals from Daye Jack.

If you’re still craving more from the talented singer/songwriter, she slows it down for “Falling Slow.” Kelly promises not to break her lovers heart and make falling in love with her worth it on the Max Martin co-produced track.

Both are sensational and potential winners for Kelly. I firmly believe Tori is on the cusp of being the next big thing. Give both a listen below.

Pitbull & Chris Brown Have ‘Fun’ In Miami

As much as I love Pitbull, the opposite can be said for Chris Brown. When I initially heard their collaboration, I didn’t want to like it due to Brown’s participation. But after months of hearing it and being in Miami just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve come fully around to “Fun.” It’s supremely catchy and excuse the pun, but fun.

Not surprisingly, for the accompanying music video, the two headed to Mr. Worldwide’s favorite city, Miami. The Gil Green-directed visual has no real narrative. Pitbull and Breezy just live it up in South Beach, in mansions and on yachts with a bevy of video vixens. That pretty much sums up my weekend a couple of weeks ago in the Magic City minus the hookers ;) Check out the clip below.

Hilary Duff has been working like a hooker this week, promoting her new album Breathe In. Breathe Out. which in stores now. The 27-year-old entertainer has been on any talk show that’ll have her to perform “Sparks.” Based on early reviews, the Duff should be pleased with the positive feedback she’s getting for her fifth studio album.

Taking a page from Miley Cyrus’ Backyard Sessions, Hilary delivers a fantastic acoustic performance of “Tattoo.” She absolutely slays it on the Ed Sheeran-penned ballad. She sounds sensational. I don’t think I recall the Younger actress sounding better. Check out the stripped-down rendition below.
