The Ting Tings burst on the scene with their be wicked debut, We Started Nothing back in 2008. That album spawned numerous hits including “”That’s Not My Name,”"Great DJ” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go.” The English band returned a couple years later but with a less successful effort even though scoring a moderate hit with “Hands.” They’re back and better than ever with the lead cut off their forthcoming third studio album, Super Critical.

Ditching their indie rock pop vibe, the Ting Tings have opted for a more commercial disco sound. The dance funk “Wrong Club” is sensational. I immediately loved it after hearing it once. For the accompanying visual, frontwoman Katie White dances solo in an abandoned warehouse in Paris with spotlights flashing around her. The Lisa Paclet-directed video is very reminiscent of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” video. Check out the video below.

30 years after Weird Al Yankovic released his smash “Eat It” parodying Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” the 54-year-old entertainer is still poking fun at some of the music industry’s biggest hits. His latest gem spoofs Pharrell Williams‘ infectious “Happy.”

Yankovic pulls out an assortment of tastefully tasteless fashions for the “Tacky” music video which premiered at the Nerdist.com earlier today. Joining him, wearing all the mismatched wardrobe ensembles are Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black.

Filming took place at the historic Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, the same space that was used as Julianne Moore’s apartment in The Big Lebowski. Check out the video below.

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 novel Where Rainbows End, the film follows Alex (Sam Calflin) and Rosie (Lily Collins), two best friends who meet at the age of 5. They are suddenly separated when Alex and his family move from Dublin to America. Can their friendship survive years and miles? Duh of course. It’s a romantic comedy.

Rounding out the cast are Christian Cooke, Tamsin Egerton and Suki Waterhouse. Love, Rosie hits theaters in the UK in October. Check out the trailer below.

Once again, Iggy Azalea looks to cinema of past for inspiration. If the formula works, why switch things up, right?

She’s traded in her Alicia Silverstone Clueless outfits for more fighting attire. The Aussie rapper channels major Uma Thurman circa Kill Bill era for the cover artwork for her new single “Black Widow.” Can we expect Rita Ora, who appears on the track, and Azalea to wield swords for the accompanying visual? I hope so.

The Stargate-produced track isn’t as catchy as “Fancy” but has potential to do well on radio. Give it a listen below if you haven’t already heard it.

Firstly, congratulations to Laverne Cox for snagging an Emmy nomination becoming the first openly transgender nominee in history. The Orange Is The New Black actress is no stranger to breaking down barriers. Earlier this year, she graced the cover of TIME magazine, becoming the first transgender cover girl for the publication. She can now add video vixen to her already impressive resume.

Cox is one of many women featured in John Legend’s “You & I (Nobody in the World)” music video. The clip features women from all walks of life, shapes and sizes, looking in the mirror. Some like what they see, while others don’t. There are several moments that are truly heartbreaking.

It’s in the vein of other empowering videos like TLC’s “Unpretty” and Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” to promote a healthy body image. Check out the clip below which also features Legend’s model wife Chrissy Teigen.

The US version of The X Factor didn’t have a very lengthy run but it did give us Fifth Harmony and Alex & Sierra. And for that Simon Cowell… I’m thankful. Love both these acts. On the heels of 5H debuting their saucy “Bo$$” clip earlier this week, their fellow X Factor alums drop their very own video.

Scarecrow” is the lead cut off the duo’s forthcoming debut album which includes tracks written by One Direction’s Harry Styles and John Legend. The lead single is a pop-folk gem tailor-made for A&S. The accompanying visual is as adorable and cute as the couple themselves. The rooftop garden where they meet up at the end is gorgeous. Check out the Phillip Andelman-directed clip below.

Rixton Covers Ariana Grande’s Problem

Of all the One Direction clones popping up everyone, Rixton is a favorite. Their extremely catchy “Me And My Broken Heart” is hard to shake out of your head once in it. The single is currently a Billboard Hot 100 Top 20 hit. Surprisingly, the boys have yet to release the track in their native UK. It’s only getting the official release next week.

The quartet recently took on an equally catchy pop track to cover. They give Ariana Grande’s “Problem” a brass-heavy production complete with guitar licks and snazzy finger snaps. If you’re a fan of the track, definitely give it a listen below. I’ve also included the music video for “Me And My Broken Heart” in case you haven’t heard the little gem yet.
