Usher must be clearly talking about a different ‘she’ because while he’s dancing up a storm at the club, Nicki Minaj is walking around at some random electronics shop. Couldn’t they have filmed at least one scene together in the same room. Pharrell Williams, who produced the track, even makes a cameo in the Philip Andelman-directed visual.

In Minaj’s defense, I suppose she’s one busy lady these days. Not only did she recently release her “Anaconda” video but she also appears with Ariana Grande in Jessie J’s “Bang Bang” clip.

Watch the “She Came To Give It To You” video below to see Minaj deliver her verses in the backroom while Ush executes his signature killer dance moves. Not the greatest clip, but I’m still a fan of the track.

Jennnifer Lopez and Pitbull used to be a lethal combination. But with each new collabo, the results have dwindled. Wisely, J. Lo has decided to swap out Mr. Worldwide on “Booty” in favor of Iggy Azalea. After all, the Aussie rapper currently has three singles on the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, becoming only the fourth woman to achieve this feat.

Even if Azalea wasn’t on a current hot streak, the pairing makes complete sense, especially on this Diplo-produced track. When you think of ample rear ends, Lopez and Azalea definitely come to mind. The only thing missing is Nicki Minaj and then you’d have a deadly trifecta. Of course, we all know that’s not going to happen since Nicki allegedly can’t stand Iggy.

Check out the new remix below and see if Iggy doubles the pleasure and doubles the fun. Weigh in afterward.

nicole-scherzinger-on-the-rocks

One would think “On The Rocks” is about Nicole Scherzinger’s quest for that elusive successful solo career. It would make sense since attempt after attempt has failed in North America. “Your Love” didn’t exactly burn up the charts and only managed to peak at No. 6 in the UK. The 36-year-old is back with the second single off her forthcoming album which was produced entirely by The Dream and Tricky Stewart.

“This is one that some people will really be able to relate to, to really feel. I’ve always spoken about my life in music but I’m at an age where I can be even more open. You can peel back the layers on this album.” – Nicole Scherzinger

On The Rocks” is a bit of a departure from all the uptempo and mid-tempo dance tracks usually released by Nicole. Switching things up with a ballad might be the trick to finally achieve a solo chart-topper. Sadly, I don’t think this ballad is it. She soars on the chorus, but it’s just not catchy. However, I will say, the single artwork is on point. She looks sensational. Give her latest a spin below.

Old School Flashback: Mya’s Best Five Tracks

mya-greatest-hits

I love me some Mya and was a huge fan back in the day. The 34-year-old singer was a fixture on the Billboard charts during the 2000s. So much so, the publication placed her at the 97th position on their Hot 100 Artists from that decade.

You might be asking yourself what brought on this bout of nostalgia? Is Mya coming out with a new album. Hopefully so. Rather, a bunch of us are heading to check out the Grammy-winning entertainer’s show in Vancouver this Wednesday. It’s going to be an old school party. I can’t wait.

I thought it was the perfect time to honor the woman who’s sold seven million albums worldwide and provided the soundtrack to some really memorable times. I’ve selected and ranked what I think Mya’s best hits are. Obviously, “Lady Marmalade” makes the cut, but exactly where. Find out below.

beyonce-mine-vmas

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of Beyonce’s epic performance during last night’s MTV Music Video Awards. I could watch it all day long (and I have.) Bey made all those other bitches look like amateurs trying out for Rising Star ;) Seriously though, that woman knows how to perform. #FLAWLESS

Overall, the 2014 awards entertained. From Nicki Minaj’s wardrobe malfunction to all the shade being thrown around. There was definitely plenty to watch. What shade you ask? Well, Gwen Stefani’s hilarious index finger clap after Taylor Swift’s performance. How about Miley Cyrus caught mouthing ‘asshole’ as Ed Sheeran walked past her to accept an award. I could go on. Relive last night’s performances and a couple of awesome shady moments.

Eminem Debuts ‘Guts Over Fear’ Featuring Sia

Despite facing some criticism for collaborating with Eminem previously, Sia follows up their previous duet “Beautiful Pain” with “Guts Over Fear.” The track will appear on the soundtrack to The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington. It will also pop on a two-disc compilation, ShadyXV, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the rapper’s label, Shady Records.

“I know personally that he is not homophobic, but a performance artist,” she tweeted at the time of her first duet with Eminem. “I would never work with someone I believed to be homophobic. I respect that he can be misinterpreted in the worst way by the ignorami, and that scares me, but I respect him as an artist and person.”

The Aussie singer donated earnings from her previous collabo to the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center. I’m curious to know if she’ll do the same this time around. Give “Guts Over Fear” a listen below and weigh in afterward.

bang-bang-music-video

Immediately after kicking off the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj premiered the music video for “Bang Bang.” This time around, Minaj didn’t fall victim to a wardrobe malfunction which arguably was the best part of her VMA performance.

With regards to the official clip, I have to say I’m rather disappointed given that some decent money was spent on production. While all three ladies look fantastic, there’s really no cohesion between their individual vignettes. Even when the all finally come together on a building rooftop, there doesn’t seem to be a connection between them. Check it out below and see if you agree with my thoughts. Hannah Lux Davis directed the visual.

mtv-vma-best-video-of-the-year

The MTV Video Music Awards take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California Sunday night. By far, the ‘moonman’ for Video Of The Year is the most prestigious one that everyone wants. Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”), Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”), Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”), Sia (“Chandelier”) and Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) are all in contention for the big award.

Even though Bey leads with the most nominations, my money is on either Iggy or Sia to take home the prize. Whoever wins will join an illustrious group of past winners which includes Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Check out their winning offerings below along with some others that aren’t so easy to recall. Remember Panic! At The Disco? Weigh in below on which ones are your favorites and your prediction on who’ll reign supreme this year.
