cheryl-cole-unpretty-cover

Cheryl Cole who simply goes by Cheryl these days drops her fourth studio album titled Only Human on November 10. The 31-year-old is in hardcore promotional mode in hopes of scoring solid first week sales. More power to ya gurrrrrl!!!

In the past week, she’s released the music video for the breezy upbeat “I Don’t Care” and the electro ballad title track “Only Human.” Now comes an out of left field cover of TLC’s empowering “Unpretty” mashed with Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts.”

The result is neither here nor there for me. I like Cheryl, but don’t think the vocals are on point with her acoustic rendition. Watch it below and see if you agree with my thoughts. I’ve also added Cheryl’s recently released new tracks off Only Human as well. Enjoy.

royksopp-you-know-i-have-to-go

Sayonara Robyn!!! You’ve been replaced by Jamie McDermott. Scandinavian duo Royksopp has tapped The Irrepressibles frontman for their new track, “You Know I Have To Go.” The mesmerizingly mournful tune is just one of several collaborations featuring McDermott on their forthcoming album, The Inevitable End.

“The attraction and the doubt; the dilemma as whether to succumb to one’s feelings or not. The sheer length of the track is meant to illustrate the prolonging internal struggle between reason and lust,” Royksopp explains of their new song. Give the borderline depressing song a listen below. I quite like it, but I’m a sucker for sad songs when I’m in a melancholy mood. Who doesn’t?

I’m sure plenty of you slutty hookers out there can relate to this. Ever have a trick spend the night and overstay their welcome? If you answered ‘yes’, you’ll definitely want to check this out.

Daniel Franzese of Mean Girls Damian fame filmed a spoof using Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” as inspiration. Titled “Please Go Home,” the parody tells the tale of a one-night stand gone wrong. Members of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus and Adrian Anchondo (“Dunkin Love“) are also featured in the clip. Check it out below.

Taking a page from his other series, Glee, Ryan Murphy will be uploading music from American Horror Story: Freak Show to iTunes. He revealed due to popular demand, a downloadable version of Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” will be available soon.

If you thought Lange’s performance on the premiere was fantastic, Murphy teases her Lana Del Rey cover featured in an upcoming episode will be “something to behold.” Kurt Cobain’s music will also be featured on the new season.

Did you watch the AHS: Freak Show premiere last night? I’m reserving full judgement after the next episode. The 90-minute premiere was a little too slow-paced for my liking. Also, Twisty the Clown wasn’t as scary as I had anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, he was creepy but he was a bit of a letdown after all the hype.

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lange were as fantastic as usual. Someone please give Paulson an Emmy statue please. It’s long overdue for her amazing work on the series. I can’t wait for the other ‘freaks’ to be introduced next episode which also happens to be 90 minutes long. Relive Lange’s performance below and share your thoughts on the premiere afterward.

pharrell-wlliams-gust-of-wind-video

The last time Pharrell Williams collaborated with Daft Punk the inescapable hit, “Get Lucky,” was born. Williams once again works with the French duo on “Gust of Wind,” the fourth single off his sophomore album G I R L. It most likely won’t earn the same critical and commercial acclaim like “Get Lucky,” but it’s still an enjoyable listen and the accompanying visual, an entertaining watch.

Daft Punk never appears in the clip but make their presence known as a pair of illuminated helmet-shaped boulders floating in the sky. Shaun of the Dead’s Edgar Wright directs the forest dance party which finds Pharrell hanging out with a bevy of aerialists and dancers on a mountainside.

Known for his unique sense of style, Pharrell’s fashion statement in the video are oversized safety pins accessorizing his sweater. I’m kinda missing his Vivienne Westwood-designed Arby’s-looking chapeau. Anyone else? Check out the fun clip below.

karmin-sugar

Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan aren’t letting the split with their record label, Epic Records, slow them down. The real life couple are back in the recording studio working on new material in hopes of proving Epic they made a huge mistake. In the label’s defense, none of the tracks off Karmin’s sophomore album, Pulses, made a blip on anyone’s radar. Here’s hoping to better luck via the indie route.

Karmin recently premiered “Sugar‘ on their SoundCloud account. The duo previously teased their new offering at the end of the first episode of their brand new YouTube webseries “Kickin’ It with Karmin” last week. An accompanying visual has already been shot and scheduled to premiere in a few days. Check out “Sugar” below which features breezy synth beats and Amy showing off her rapping skills.

Jessie J. Premieres Scorching Burnin’ Up Video

In: Donovan, Music
jessie-j-burnin-up

2 Chainz pretty much sums it up in the rap interlude, “White girl in the middle, looking like an Oreo.” Even when she’s surrounded with other white girls, Jessie J. is the creamy white filling due to her gorgeous alabaster skin. The 26-year-old looks stunningly fierce in her “Burnin’ Up” music video.

The Hannah Lux Davis-directed visual shows off Jessie’s surprisingly wicked dance skills. Girl slays the tight choreography while wearing tight black latex showing off some major butt cheeks. Naturally, I’m also partial to the scenes where shirtless oiled men serve as props poolside.

While there’s no denying “Burnin’ Up” has a bangin’ beat, I doubt it’ll reach the heights of its predecessor, “Bang Bang.” 2 Chainz doesn’t have the same commercial cachet as Ariana Grande or Nicki Minaj but should still become a moderate radio hit. Give the video a watch below.

nicole-scherzinger-cats

Before you get too excited, Nicole Scherzinger isn’t reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did in the future, if her new solo album flops like her previous attempt. Rather, the 36-year-old singer is joining the West End revival production of Cats. She’ll play “Glamour Cat” Grizabella for a 12-week run starting in December at London’s Palladium.

“I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited,” Nicole shared in a statement. “To have the opportunity to work with Andrew [Lloyd Webber], Trevor, and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to record Cats’ beautiful song ‘Memory.’ Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honored to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”

This isn’t the first time Scherzinger has performed songs from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. She’s previously sang songs from Phantom Of The Opera and Evita for various music specials. Check out the performances below.
