First of all, can we just address the photo above? Holy hotness Batman!!! Miguel is serving some serious sex on a stick and papa wants a piece. WOOF!!!
Back in December, Miguel dropped an EP featuring three tracks. One of those tracks was “Coffee.” The 29-year-old singer updated the track with more explicit lyrics. Now, he wants ‘f**king’ instead of ‘coffee’ in the morning and other sexually-tinged verses. For the new version, Miguel also enlisted rapper Wale to add some hip-hop swagger.
Rumor has it, the track will be included on his forthcoming album, Wild Heart. If you enjoyed Miguel’s previous work, you’ll love “Coffee (F**king).” It features his signature sound, consisting of a rough sensual beat paired with his smooth vocals. Give it a spin below.
With Beyonce pretty much conquering everything as an artist, she’s shifted focus to mentoring and developing new talent. The 33-year-old superstar has reportedly signed two teen acts to her company, Parkwood Entertainment, according to the New York Post.
The first is a sister act from Los Angeles. Chloe and Halle Bailey have a strong YouTube presence due to their popular covers of artists such as One Direction, Katy Perry and Beyonce herself. I’m sure their killer “Pretty Hurts” cover grabbed Queen B’s attention, ergo a reported $1 million contract for the sisters.
For her second act, Bey headed out East to New York. Sophie Beem is a New York-based singer-songwriter. If she looks familiar, perhaps it’s from her time on The X Factor. In 2012, she made it all the way to the Top 40. She supposedly signed a $560,000 deal with Mrs. Carter’s company. Check out both acts below.
The Brothers Lawrence, better known as Disclosure, dropped their first original song in a couple of years earlier this week. “Latch” became a smash hit last year, but it was actually released in 2012 off the English duo’s Settle LP. If you were hoping for something in the vein of “Latch,” you’re SOL. This is no cheap knockoff.
“As work speedily progresses on our next record, we wanted to give you guys something for the summer,” Disclosure wrote in the track’s description. “Been playing this one in our DJ sets for a while now and couldn’t resist putting it up! Hope you enjoy… So much more on the way!”
“Bang That” is much more heavy-hitting and steers away from house electro-pop. It didn’t immediately engage me, but I have a feeling this will be a slow burn. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.
Who knew pairing up Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea together would yield something Gwen Stefani might’ve recorded a decade ago. Seriously, this sounds like “Hollaback” 2.0, which might not necessarily be a bad thing.
“Pretty Girls,” not surprisingly, leaked days before its official release. It’s more urban pop than club banger. It’s not what I expected from the duo, but I’m kinda liking it. With the loyal fanbases of both ladies, this will surely be a contender for 2015 Song of the Summer honors.
Reportedly, Little Mix recorded a demo but ditched it. If this becomes a huge smash, I’m sure the British quartet might be a little upset. Oh well, at least they have songwriting credits on the track. That’s where the real money is at, right?
I can’t wait to see the accompanying music video which was inspired by the ’80s cult comedy Earth Girls Are Easy. Give it a listen below. No fuglies allowed. This is only for the pretties ;)
MNEK first caught my attention when he delivered a wicked dance cover of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” featuring an interpolation of the B-52’s classic “Love Shack.” The 20-year-old British Grammy-nominated singer/producer has worked his magic again. He recorded a killer cover of Cher’s “Believe.” He gives the late 90s dance anthem some soul and a kick-ass drum and bass beat.
The talented Nigerian-born might not be a household name yet, but you certainly know some of his past work. He’s produced and written hits for The Saturdays (“All Fired Up), Kylie Minogue “Feels So Good” and Little Mix (“Wings”). Check out his latest offering below.
20 years ago, Selena Quintanilla was murdered by her fan club’s president, Yolanda Saldívar. Jennifer Lopez played the fallen Tejano superstar in the 1997 film Selena. She lip synced to Selena’s songs in the film, but last night the 45-year-old entertainer used her own vocals to pay tribute to the slain singer.
Lopez was joined on stage with Quintanilla’s family band, Los Dinos. Together they performed “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and “I Could Fall In Love” and “No Me Queda Mas.” J.Lo also incorporated Selena’s fashion sense in her wardrobe- ruffles, bustier and high-waisted pants. Watch the sensational performance below.
“When she held that last note on ‘No Me Queda Mas’ it was amazing,” A.B. Quintanilla told Billboard. “The electricity was there and even though she was singing Selena’s songs, she made them her own tonight. She did a beautiful job.”
The thirst is real folks. Just look at Davey Wavey practically salivating at the fact he’s about to see Steve Grand shirtless up close and personal. I don’t blame him. The openly-gay singer is one hot piece of beef. Though, he’d like people to see him more than that. Good luck ;)
Grand appears in this tongue-in-cheek video where the YouTube personality apologizes for the way gay media has exploited and sexualized him. As an aside, don’t you find it rich when hot people complain about that.
The clip is a fun approach for Steve to take to promote his debut album, All-American Boy, which is available now. Sex sells for sure. Check it out below and try not to get too jealous of Davey Wavey when he’s rubbing oil all over Steve’s man tits.
I love a slow jam as much as the next person, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta dance. Finally, Ciara shares an uptempo track off her forthcoming Jackie album. And a killer one at that. Cici enlists not one, but two powerhouses. Frequent collaborators Missy Elliot and Pitbull throw it down on the Polow Da Don-produced track.
It’s nice to see Ciara switching things up. This has massive potential to become a hit this summer. I can already visualize the 29-year-old singer dropping some killer moves in the music video. Give “That’s How I’m Feelin’” a listen below and weigh in afterward.
