keri-hilson-100-scream

Well, welcome back Miss Pretty Girl Rock!!! It’s been five years since Keri Hilson released No Boys Allowed and it appears the 32-year-old singer is about to embark on her new era.

Hilson just debuted two new tracks off her forthcoming third studio album. I love Keri but neither really scream comeback hit. “Scream” is a lowdown baby-making track while “100” is completely forgettable. Hopefully, she has better offerings on the LP which reportedly will drop in August, according to a press release.

Speaking of that document, collabs to look forward to include Dr. Luke, Chris Brown and Ester Dean. Until those surface, check out her underwhelming songs, IMHO, below.

I fear that Leona Lewis might never recapture the glory of her “Bleeding Love” days. The lead cut “Fire Under My Feet” off her latest album, I Am, faltered in her native UK, peaking at only No. 51. I actually quite liked it and thought it’d at least break the Top 20. Are people just over Lewis?

The 30-year-old chanteuse officially releases “Thunder” as the second official UK release and the first US single. The soaring and stomping track is all about empowerment. It’s solid, but I much prefer “Fire Under My Feet.”

Speaking of empowerment, another track has leaked from her forthcoming album. It’s the title track and it feels like it’s somewhat of a dig at her former mentor Simon Cowell. It could very well be about an ex, but it’s far more salacious if it’s shade directed towards The X Factor judge. Give “I Am” and “Thunder” a listen below.

Hilary Duff Releases ‘My Kind’ Music Video

Usually you get this type of visual if an artist has given up on promoting their latest album. If that’s the case, it’s a shame because Breathe In, Breathe Out isn’t half bad.

Hilary Duff releasing this lazy music video for “My Kind” is a tad puzzling. The sugar-y upbeat pop track is one of the highlights on the LP and deserves more. To boot, the dance practice footage appears to be choreography for her other single “Sparks.” WTF to say the least.

Given that her Tinder music video experiment was badly received and now this, clearly Hilary needs better people on her team. Her comeback has been a borderline hot mess. The Younger actress deserves better. Watch her latest clip below and see if you think she’s given up as well.

How Did Is Your Love” is not a cover of the Bee Gee’s disco classic. But how awesome would it be if it was? Love that track. Rather, it’s a killer new dance anthem from Calvin Harris and London-based production trio Disciples. It was scheduled for a July 17 release but has leaked online early.

Rumor has it, this is the first taste off Harris’ forthcoming fifth studio album– his follow up to Motion which included the hits “Blame,” “Summer,” “Outside” and “Pray To God.” If this is any indication of what’s to come, Calvin has another hit LP on his hands. Check out his wicked new deep house masterpiece below.

Despite having some solid tracks, the performance of Nate Ruess‘ debut album, Grand Romantic, has been underwhelming to say the least. The lead cut “Nothing Without Love” peaked at only No. 77 on the Billboard Hot 100. Hopefully, his next official single fares much better. If not, at least he has band, fun, to fall back on.

Great Big Storm” is a great track with strong verses. Sadly, it’s missing a catchy hook. The James Lees-directed clip finds Ruess leading a big parade on the streets of his hood. He’s joined by a marching band, athletes and other random individuals. Watch Nate frolicking in the rain below.

Numerous fans felt a little gypped by the original edit of “Bitch I’m Madonna.” With all the marquee names participating, I, like many, assumed Beyonce, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus would’ve been featured more than just a couple of seconds in the Jonas Akerlund-directed clip. Pretty much all they did was lip sync just one line. Does her new visual rectify that faux pas?

Madonna ditches the partygoers and her Asian lady backup dancers in the Sander Kleinenberg remix video edit. Instead, the 56-year-old icon is shown gyrating and hair flipping in a room solo while grainy footage of Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Diplo, Nicki Minaj and the aforementioned names are edited in between. The cameos are a bit longer but not by much. Check out the video remix edit below.

Lana Del Rey Debuts Lush New Track ‘Honeymoon’

Lana Del Rey just wrapped up her Endless Summer Tour last month but has already begun promotion on her fourth studio album, Honeymoon, which is set to drop this September. The first taste of her new era has just arrived. While it’s the title track, “Honeymoon” is just a buzz single. “Music To Watch Boys To,” will reportedly get the honor as the album’s first official release.

“Honeymoon” is exactly what you’d expect from Del Rey. It’s a lush ballad that features a sweeping orchestra and melancholic lyrics. At first glance, the clip released looked like a music video with Lana appearing in the first 30 seconds. However, it quickly transitions to just the song’s lyrics. Give it a listen below.

Kelly Clarkson kicked off her Piece By Piece Tour this past weekend in Pennsylvania. Like her previous one, the 33-year-old singer includes a segment during this tour where she performs a cover requested by her fans. Expect many more of these posts to come as she makes her way through North America.

For her first cover, she picked Tori Kelly’s infectious single “Nobody Love.” Clarkson praised the rising star saying, “I’m a huge fan of this artist.” She added, “Not many people can sing well live and this girl is nailing it.” Preach Kelly!!! I love Tori and ecstatic that Kelly is a fan as well.

When Tori saw the cover, she tweeted her gratitude. “This is so awesome 2 me. thanks @kelly_clarkson for the shoutout & for being such a real artist (she killed my song).” And boy did she ever. Clarkson nailed it.

Check it out below. I can’t wait to hear what she has in store when she hits my neck of the woods. So excited to see her. Surprisingly, I’ve never attended her concert previously.
