Even in the afterlife Michael Jackson continues to make history. His visual for “A Place With No Name” became the first music video ever to premiere on Twitter. Musicians promoting their clips via the social media is nothing new, but watching them within tweets is a fairly new feature.

The video is the second single off Jackson’s critically acclaimed posthumous album, Xscape. The lead single, “Love Never Felt So Good,” became his first top ten hit in the US on the Hot 100 since 2001’s “You Rock My World.”

“A Place With No Name” was originally recorded in 1998 and updated by superproducer Stargate. Award-winning director Samuel Bayer filmed the video which features footage of the late King of Pop dancing in previously unreleased outtakes from his 1992 “In the Closet” video. Interspersed in between MJ’s moves is a couple dancing on the beach and other locations. Check out the video below.

Britney Spears “Womanizer” anyone? Everyone has a past and Iggy Azalea’s has just surfaced.

Before finding fame as a lyrical rapper, the 24-year-old Aussie was an aspiring pop tart. Her “Nothing Like Me” sounds an awful lot like “Womanizer” and accompanying video resembles “Gimme More.” Someone had a hard-on for Spears?

Azalea isn’t the first musician with an embarrassing musical past. Hardly! Just ask Katy Perry and Alanis Morrissette about their Christian and cheesy pop past respectively. Everyone has to start somewhere. Check out “Nothing Like Me” below.

For his next film, Quentin Tarantino should really consider casting Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora as his next leading ladies. These two are a deadly combo together. Bad ass bitches they are.

Azalea swaps out Clueless for Kill Bill as the inspiration for her latest clip. Iggy plays a waitress while Rita plays the girlfriend to Michael Madsen. Wielding samurai swords, the two exact revenge on him for his douchebaggery. Check out the fun clip below directed by Director X.

If I was Calvin Harris, I’d be careful and stop playing the jilted ex lover. I’m sure Ora can only take so much of her former beau’s antics. It was recently revealed that Harris stopped Ora’s scheduled performance of “I Will Never Let You Down” and took back most of the tracks he produced for Rita’s forthcoming album. One day Rita might just put that sword to good use. Lorena Bobbitt anyone ;)

Part Lost In Space. Part Barbarella. Part Star Wars. Ariana Grande’s latest video is one hundred percent pure intergalactic fun.

The 21-year-old goes full camp for the Zedd-assisted smash. How else would you describe a clip that features a torpedo-shooting bra? Katy Perry would be so proud. It also includes a white corridor Michael and Janet Jackson sashayed through in “Scream” and cheesy graphics worthy of Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again” video.

Grande plays a female heroine who takes down some grisly aliens by karate chopping them to death, freeing a motley crew of captive humans and aliens. It all ends up at a cantina worthy of a Star Wars dance party. Chris Marrs Piliero (Britney Spears‘ “I Wanna Go” & “Criminal,” Kesha‘s “Blow”) directed the clip.

“Break Free” is currently in the Billboard Hot 100 Top 20. With a new video that I fully expect to go viral, I expect a Top 10 placing on next week’s chart. Watch all the action below.

Hilary Duff Debuts Catchy ‘All About You’

In: Donovan, Music
hilary-duff-all-about-you

Now this is more like it. Hilary Duff’s first attempt at a music comeback, “Chasing The Sun,” failed to chase anything. Let alone the sun. It’s doing so poorly that it appears Duff’s team has relegated the track to just a buzz single and touting “All About You” as the first official single off Duff’s forthcoming album.

While “Chasing The Sun” sounded like a poor man’s “Stars Are Blind” (Paris Hilton), “All About You” has far more potential. The Savan Kotecha, Carl Falk and Kristian Lundin-penned track features a catchy hook and killer chorus. Give it a listen below.

“For me the video for #Monument is about some kind of inner journey, space in time and the experience of your own body”, says Robyn about her new visual with Royksopp. “Monument” is the second official single off their album.

While a great track in its own right, I don’t think it’ll reach the zenith of the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs Chart like “Do It Again” did. However, if armed with a killer remix it could duplicate its success.

The Max Vitali-directed clip features the Swedish pop star and Royksopp on an illuminated circular platform as a couple performs a contemporary dance routine. In between those scenes, bizarre random visuals of human tissue and screensaver-type images appear. Check out the intense and trippy clip below.

After delivering the one-two pop punch of “Problem” and “Break Free,” Ariana Grande slows things down for “Best Mistake.” It’s the first slow tempo track she’s shared off her forthcoming album My Everything in stores August 25.

Grande enlisted her good buddy (and rumored new love interest) Big Sean for the smooth track. The duo previously collaborated on “Right There,” from her debut album Yours Truly. Give it a listen below.

Well that was short-lived! Danity Kane announced a reunion minus original member D. Woods earlier this year. A couple of months later, Aundrea Fimbres bailed the project, making the girl group now only a trio, despite announcing their #NoFilterTour. According to TMZ, the remaining members have called it quits for good after an altercation during a recording session.
