Tinashe’s Superlove Is Super Sensational

In: Donovan, Music

Tinashe is back and thank God!!! I love the 23-year-old singer and feel she’s just on the cusp of breaking through. Definitely underrated.

Produced by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, “Superlove” is reportedly the new lead single from her anticipated, and long-delayed, second album, which BTW is no longer called Joyride. I suppose her team wants to start from scratch after “Player” featuring Chris Brown bombed, despite being fantastic.

Though the cover art is serving up some 80s realness, the track sounds more early 00s. It sounds like something Ciara would’ve released during her “Goodies” era. Fingers crossed this gets some radio support. Give the sensational bop a listen below.

Without a doubt, the numerous filters are the best thing about Snapchat. Who doesn’t love seeing themselves as a puppy, monster, flower child or drag queen? Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon put the app’s different lenses to use for an adorable duet on Grande’s “Into You.”

Speaking of the track, why this song hasn’t cracked the Top 40 yet is insane. It’s much better than “Dangerous Woman” and my favorite pop song this summer, so far. Maybe this little stunt might propel it higher on the chart.

Give the cute Snapchat clip a view below. It includes one very creepy face swap. Does anyone’s face ever look good on someone’s head?

When “Good Girls” was chosen as the official theme song for the Ghostbusters reboot, I was taken aback. While tapping Elle King for the gig made sense, given the all-female cast, I was surprised Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott’s cover of the Ray Parker Jr’s classic wasn’t chosen as the lead cut. When I heard the new rendition of “Ghostbusters,” I finally understood why. It’s one hot mess.

After listening to “Good Girls” a couple more times, it’s grown on me. I love the raspy tone of the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer. The accompanying visual, directed by Dano Cerny, also does well to sell the track. While partying it up at a local bar, King grabs a proton pack and captures a couple of ghosts herself. Check out the fun clip below.

After the commercial disappointment that was Britney Jean, I have a feeling Britney Spears will rebound big time with her new album. At least that’s my prediction after checking out her latest fragrance commercial featuring a new song titled “Private Show.”

“‘Private Show’ is inevitably a sexy song and it promotes feeling sexy and girls feeling alive and I think that’s fun for girls,” Britney told Entertainment Tonight. “I think the scent definitely has a combination of all those things.”

And sexy it is. The 34-year-old superstar is absolutely sizzling in the clip. Dare I say, she’s never looked better, even during her Oops era. Whatever she’s doing, keep on, keeping on. It’s working ten fold.

Checking out her smoking new ad below. It sorta reminds me of Beyonce’s underrated “Dance For You” music video.

If you haven’t heard, Taylor Swift had a hand in writing Calvin Harris’ latest smash hit featuring Rihanna. After TMZ speculated Swift’s involvement with “This Is What You Came For,” the “Black Space” singer’s team confirmed she used the pen name of Nils Sjöberg in the songwriting credits.

Based on a series of tweets, it’s clear Harris isn’t happy that all this surfaced. The Scottish DJ took to Twitter to share his side of the story. Read all the juicy details below. Let’s just say, there is no love lost on Calvin’s end.

Just weeks after sharing her cover of Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close,” Nelly Furtado returns with another track. And this time around, it’s an original composition.

The 37-year-old reveals “Behind Your Back” is just a one-off single, merely an appetizer for her much-anticipated sixth studio album. “Surrounded by my 90’s heroes had me nostalgic. Behind Your Back is a special that won’t b on my LP. It’s a palette cleanse… an appetizer,” she reveals.

“Behind Your Back” doesn’t exactly scream radio hit. With that being said, I quite like it. Even though it’s not mainstream, I like that it shows off a different, more mature side of the “Promiscuous” singer. Give it a listen below.

Hands,” is a musical tribute to the 49 victims of the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The track features Mary J Blige, Jason Derulo, Britney Spears, Tyler Glenn, Selena Gomez, Halsey, Ty Herndon, Imagine Dragons, Juanes, Adam Lambert, Mary Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, Kacey Musgraves, MNEK, Alex Newell, P!nk, Prince Royce, Nate Ruess, RuPaul, Troye Sivan, Jussie Smollett, Gwen Stefani, and Meghan Trainor.

The just-released lyric video doesn’t feature any of the artists, with exception to some footage taken during the recording. Rather, it showcases online personalities including Rebecca Black and Michael Buckley to name a few, displaying the song lyrics on their hands.

However, it’s the appearance of Patience Carter, Tiara Parker, and Angel Anthony Santiago, survivors of the shooting at Pulse Nightclub, that make a huge emotional impact. Check out the video below.

Proceeds from the sale of the new tribute single in the United States will benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, and GLAAD.

Shawn Mendes gets a little political in his “Treat You Better” music video, putting domestic violence in the spotlight. The gritty clip shows the 17-year-old Canadian crooner pining over a girl who’s in an abusive relationship. The dramatic visual ends with a number for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. No doubt, urging those in need to seek help.

Mendes could’ve easily gone for a safe jealousy-themed video for the tropical pop track. I applaud the young pop sensation for releasing a clip with a message. Check out the Ryan Pallotta-directed visual below.
