We’re only a couple of days away til Dangerous Woman drops.To promote its release, Ariana Grande has been extremely generous previewing tracks off her third studio LP. Just in case you’ve missed a few of them, I’ve embedded three of my favorites.

The 22-year-old has teamed up with Nicki Minaj a couple of times previously, most notably for the smash hit “Bang Bang.” They reunite for a reggae-influenced number, titled “Side By Side,” that has massive potential. Her sugary vocals work well with the rapper’s spicy rhymes.

Speaking of opposites, Ariana’s collaboration with Macy Gray is exactly that. These two couldn’t be any more different but Macy’s husky tones are a perfect complement to Ariana’s silky runs. Fingers crossed “Leave Me Lonely” gets an official release. I’d love to see this duo co-star in a clip.

If there’s a track that is guaranteed to get an official release, it’s “Greedy.” This one is extremely catchy with its infectious funky beat. Give it and the other two a listen below.

Since Zedd and Kesha were allowed to officially release their collaboration “True Colors,” I thought things were cooling down between Kesha Rose and her label. It appears that’s not the case.

The Billboard Music Awards just released a statement revealing Kesha won’t be able to perform this Sunday due to her ongoing legal battle. Reportedly, she was given written confirmation from Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Records but later, the permission was rescinded. Read Billboard’s statement below.

Not really sure why Justin Timberlake released another music video for “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” Perhaps, his team thought it would be a good idea to help buoy the single’s streaming numbers. Not that it needed the help. The song is already a smash hit. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Like the previous clip, this one features people getting their groove on to the catchy track. However, this time around most of the people dancing are random folks and not celebrities lending their voices for the Dreamworks animated film, Trolls.

Personally, I like the star-studded version much better. If you love, however, watching JT eat at a diner, grocery shop and dance with strangers, then the Mark Romanek-directed clip is for you. Watch it below.

Nick Jonas in the backseat of an SUV. Talk about a fantasy come true. The things I would do 😉

The 23-year-old singer and Demi Lovato are the latest passengers to hitch a ride with James Corden for a round of Carpool Karaoke. “Heart Attack,” “Stone Cold” and “Confident” from Lovato’s catalog were played while Jonas’ “Chains,” “Jealous” and “Close” were also heard. Nick’s big bro’s “Cake By The Ocean” got a little love as well.

As entertaining as all the singing was, the best part was when Demi teased Nick about dating Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez back and forth several times years ago. You might also enjoy listening to Nick talk about being tied up.

Check out the video below which also features the trio try their hand at busking. I’m curious to know how much money they collected.

Coldplay Debuts Trippy ‘Up & Up’ Music Video

Chris Martin and company may not put on the most riveting Super Bowl Half-time show, but they certainly know how to deliver a thoroughly entertaining music video. The special effects in their trippy new visual are some of the best I’ve seen in recent memory.

“The video is a poignant, surrealist montage that alludes to contemporary issues. It also features racehorses galloping on water and a popcorn-spouting volcano.” – video official press release

Co-directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, the surreal clip features members of Coldplay as gigantic figures in naturalistic scenarios, i.e. Martin using a mountain range as a huge lounger. Another favorite moment features a man high jumping over the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It truly is a fantastic visual and deserves a look.

Up & Up” is the third official single off the British group’s latest album, A Head Full of Dreams. Watch the music video below.

Justin Timberlake Scores First #1 Single In Nine Years

The 20/20 Experience marked a triumphant return to music for Justin Timberlake, but the album failed to deliver a #1 hit single. “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors” came close, peaking at #3 and #2 respectively. After nine long years, the 35-year-old returns to the summit with his latest single “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” It’s the fifth solo Hot 100 No. 1 of his career.

The second I heard the Trolls soundtrack single, I just knew the bop had massive potential. The single storms onto the Billboard Hot 100, debuting in pole position. It’s only the 26th song ever to debut on top. Also worth nothing is the fact the pop smash is Max Martin’s 22nd produced single to dominate the chart. He currently sits in third place among songwriters, trailing only Paul McCartney (32) and John Lennon (26).

In other Hot 100-related news, Rihanna’s latest hit “Needed Me” soars from 13-10 to become her 29th Hot 100 top 10. With that, she now ties Michael Jackson for the third-most Hot 100 top 10s. They both trail only Madonna (38) and the Beatles (34). Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

E! Shares First Look At Mariah’s World

“You guys are living for this footage,” says Mariah Carey in the clip. And you know what? The 46-year-old diva just might be right.

I wasn’t very optimistic when E! first announced Carey’s foray into reality. I was a little worried we were on the brink of another Whitney Houston in Being Bobby Brown or Britney and Kevin: Chaotic. That doesn’t appear to be the case. Mariah’s World looks like a fun, superficial and glamorous romp. Exactly what I want from a pop diva.

“I’m wearing these glasses because we’re in fluorescent lighting, and I have a rule which states that I will not be seen in fluorescent lighting without sunglasses. I know it’s very ’90s,” declares in the trailer.

The eight-part docuseries follows Carey as she prepares for her Sweet Sweet Fantasy European tour and upcoming wedding to fiancé James Packer. No premiere date has been revealed, but it’s expected to debut later this year. Check out the first trailer for Mariah’s World below.

Albeit baby steps, Ariana Grande is definitely making an effort to change up her look for her new era. She let her hair down to show off wavy tresses for her “Dangerous Woman” music video and now, she curls her hair even more for her latest visual. If you’re a fan of her signature high-pony though, don’t fret, it pops up here too.

Leading up to the release of her new album, out this Friday, the 22-year-old chanteuse has been quite generous sharing tracks from her LP. “Greedy,” which she previewed recently is absolutely fantastic. Definitely check it out, if you haven’t already done so.

Another standout is her Lil Wayne-assisted collabo “Let Me Love You.” After teasing screen caps last week, Grande premiered the entire clip exclusively via Apple Music Sunday night. She channels her inner sex kitten for the sultry clip directed by Grant Singer. Check it out below.
