Almost fifty years in the business, the ever-youthful Olivia Newton-John is still going strong and making history. With her latest single, “You Have To Believe,” the 67-year-old legend just notched a Billboard first. Along with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, who’s featured on the track, the two become the first mother-daughter team to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.

“I am so excited that this collaboration with my daughter and Dave Audé has reached #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart,” says Newton-John. “It’s fun to have another number one at this point in my career but, I am even more excited that it’s with my daughter and that we get to share this together!”

“Having had the chance to work with my mom was such a great learning experience,” says Lattanzi. “Now add to that being #1 makes it icing on the cake – I’m so proud of being a part of such an amazing team!”

To date, the only other mother-daughter Billboard chart toppers are a little country act named The Judds. Heard of them 😉 They reached pole position on the country charts but not on the club one.

You Have To Believe” is a reworking of Newton-John’s chart-topper, “Magic,” from her film Xanadu. It features production from prolific dance maestro Dave Audé.

If you haven’t checked out the music video for “You Have To Believe” yet, watch it below. To catch Olivia live in person, she continues to pack houses at the Flamingo Las Vegas with her ongoing residency, Summer Nights.

Hailee Steinfeld Shares Audio Sampler For Debut EP

In: Donovan, Music

Hailee Steinfeld has navigated her transition from Academy Award-nominated actress to recording artist quite nicely. Her debut single “Love Myself,” which I love, performed solidly, cracking the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 and charting in several foreign markets as well.

The 18-year-old releases her first EP, Haiz, this Friday on November 13. Based on an audio sampler she recently shared, it appears she has more pop gems up her sleeve. Aside from “Love Myself,” “You’re Such A…” has potential to become a favorite of mine. Sample her four-track EP below and weigh in afterward.

Alanis Morissette is everywhere these days celebrating the 20th anniversary her quintessential third studio album, Jagged Little Pill. On the heels of her appearance on The Tonight Show, where she dressed up as a giant chicken to cluck one of her hit tracks, comes this adorable gem.

The 41-year-old singer performed her 1995 hit, “Ironic” (my favorite), on The Late Late Show, but with updated lyrics. With James Corden’s brilliant assistance, the classic tune now gives nods to modern distractions including Tinder, Netflix, Facebook and Uber.

However, my favorite moment is when they address the biggest criticism Alanis received when she first released the song. “It’s singing ironic, but there are no ironies,” they sing in harmony. Check out the very amusing bit below.

During an interview with author Bret Easton Ellis for his podcast, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos came out as gay. The 28-year-old musician also discussed his marriage and divorce with stylist Kirsty Mucci, being bi-polar and his self-loathing.

“Specifically with my sexuality, it was just, unlike bipolar, ‘Don’t get help. Don’t talk to anyone,’” he said. “I lived in such a straight group of people. Not like anyone wasn’t going to be understanding, it was not the time.” Easton asked him to clarify whether he meant the music or college scene. “Kind of both. This was dudes in bands talking about girls. It was just so easy at the time to talk about girls. I just kept writing about them. It was like the music was then again informing … I was going through so many difficult issues with girls in general that when I started dating my wife she just quieted them so much so. She was such a good friend. It became kind of a non-issue.”

Passion Pit has three studio albums thus far, with the latest, Kindred, released earlier this year. The indietronica band’s biggest hit to date is “Take a Walk” off the sophomore LP, Gossamer. It charted on Billboard’s Hot 100, adult contemporary, alternative and rock charts.

Check out the video below, along with his interview. The most interesting bits begin at the 49:00 minute mark. Actually, the entire chat is quite fascinating. Definitely check it out if you have time.

Yaz’s new wave hit, “Only You,” doesn’t immediately come to mind when one mentions Christmas songs. After hearing Kylie Minogue’s cover of the 80s ballad, though, it just might become your new holiday favorite.

The 47-year-old Aussie recorded the track with James Corden for her Christmas album, Kylie Christmas. With The Late Late Show host on board, it’s easy to assume that their rendition might take a comedic turn. Instead, they take the already-beautiful classic to an even more tender place.

Check out the lyric video below. Hopefully, an official video is also on the way. I’d love to see this duo have a festive fun time.

When it comes to Purpose, I’m starting to sound like a broken record. It’s been nothing but praise from the get-go. I can’t help it. Everything Justin Bieber has shared so far, “What Do You Mean,” “Sorry” and “I’ll Show You,” has been fantastic.

“My new record is about growing, being in touch with yourself. What can I say, it’s life experiences, and knowing that you can and get back up and keep going” – Justin Bieber via USA Today

The 21-year-old continues with his winning streak by sharing a trio of new tracks off his fourth studio album, which is available November 13. My favorite among the bunch is the Ed Sheeran-penned “Love Yourself.” It’s just Bieber’s voice on display over an acoustic guitar arrangement. The Halsey-assisted “The Feeling” is also great.

Picking the next single to release will be a difficult one. Check out both tracks, along with “Madly In Love” below.

I’m curious exactly who on their team pitched the idea to pay homage to the iconic disco flick, Saturday Night Fever, because I love it. Take That do an excellent job channeling John Travolta’s swagger as they strut down the street. And don’t even get me started on the outfits. Even though they’re definitely a throwback, I could wear some of the retro-inspired ensembles today. I’m obsessed with Gary Barlow’s tropical shirt.

Hey Boy” is the latest track off the British group’s seventh studio album, III, released last year. So far, it’s their best-charting single of the LP since the lead cut, “These Days,” which topped the UK chart.

Check out their latest clip below where the now three-man band visit an underground club furnished with a disco ball and lit dance floor. Looks like a fun time was had by all.

Covering Amy Winehouse isn’t new for Sam Smith. The 23-year-old Brit has covered “Tears Dry On Their Own” numerous times in the past. For the re-release of his Grammy-winning debut album, In The Lonely Hour (Drowning Shadows Edition), Smith decided to take on another classic Amy tune. It’s one of the new tracks featured on his new LP.

Sam debuted his rendition of “Love Is A Losing Game” on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show Friday. “That lyric–love is a losing game–is possibly one of the most relatable lyrics that I’ve ever heard,” he told Mac about why it felt right to cover this track. Check out his beautiful take below.
