gorgon-city-go-all-night-music-video

Since sharing this track with ya’ll a few weeks ago, it’s been on constant repeat. I can’t get enough of the 90s house-influenced dance number.

English electronic music production duo, Gorgon City, tapped the Dreamgirls actress for “Go All Night. ” Jennifer Hudson leaves R&B to venture into deep house courtesy of Kiesza. The “Hideaway” singer co-wrote the dance track. Going out of her comfort zone suits J-Hud quite nicely. Hudson recently chatted with Entertainment Tonight about the music video.

“I used to go perform at the gay clubs and drag queens used to dress me,” Hudson told ET. “So, this is home to me, like I get the language, and I know where we’re going with it and that’s why I’m like ‘Let’s get into it, honey. What are we waiting for?’”

Directed by Roboshobo, the visual finds Hudson partying it up with Gorgon City at some underground rave til the morning light. Appropriately enough, there’s plenty of vogueing, drag queens and fun all around. The track is off the DJs’ debut album Sirens in stores now. Check out the fun clip below.

nick-jonas-album

Are you tired of the daily Nick Jonas updates yet? At surface it appears superficial with most of the focus put on his body, but I have to give him credit for backing things up with talent. His sophomore self-titled album is kinda impressive. Even if he was heinous (thank God he’s not), I’d still listen to Nick Jonas.

I had a feeling the album would be decent after hearing “Chains” and “Jealous.” On a side note, have you heard the sexy remix featuring Tinashe on the latter. So effin’ sexy!!! Even though “Chains” failed to make a dent on radio or on the charts, it gave fans a taste of a more grown-up Nick. With “Jealous” rising on the charts and a highly buzzed-about performance on DirecTV’s Kingdom, Jonas is poised to be bigger than his family act, Jonas Brothers, ever was.

“In making this record, I really allowed myself to be vulnerable and open up emotionally,” he tells Rolling Stone. “This record is a combination of R&B, soul and pop, with musical influences from legendary artists that I’ve always admired such as Prince and Stevie Wonder – and more modern artists such as the Weeknd and Jhene Aiko. My plan is to surprise the world with the unexpected.”

One of the standouts on his new album officially in stores November 11, is a duet with Demi Lovato. “Avalanche” is a ballad about the aftermath of a breakup. This has radio hit written all over it. The only thing I would change is Demi kinda wailing with her ad libs at the end. I like her, but she’s not exactly the diva she thinks she is. Other early favorites on the LP include “Teacher,” “Push,” and “Nothing Would Be Better.”

Give his new album a listen below. It’s his first with a Parental Advisory warning label. It’s a good thing he put away that purity ring a longtime ago.

selena-gomez-the-heart-wants-what-it-wants-music-video

Looks like Selena Gomez has been spending way too much time with Taylor Swift. She’s taking a page out of the “Shake It Off” singer’s playbook. Gomez is channeling her relationship woes to her work. The 22-year-old singer reveals to Ryan Seacrest that her new single “The Heart Wants What It Wants” is based on her tabloid-grabbing romance with Justin Bieber.

“Everybody wants to form their own opinions anyway,” she explained to Ryan Seacrest. “I was trying to figure out what I’m doing, and that was the first time I was constantly being kicked down for doing that. When I didn’t know, I just wanted to say, ‘This is what I want, this is where I am in my professional life, things changed in my personal life, things changed in my heart — everything.’”

She continued, “And people just thought, ‘Alright, this is what we think.’ And yeah, I made some decisions that weren’t great as well, and so did [Bieber] and that’s why we went through all that to only make us better. And he has heard [the song] and he has seen the video, and it’s something that I feel like girls need to hear, and it’s something I’m willing to share with people.”

Minus all her tabloid headlines regarding her on-again, off-again romance with The Biebs, it’s been a relatively quiet year for Selenars. It only makes sense to capitalize on it given the public’s fascination.

I like Selena, but watching the music video intro and her interview with Seacrest, had me gagging a little. She reminds me of those annoying girls I used to hang with back in my early 20s who were so indecisive with their obviously bad-for-them boyfriends. Just pull the band-aid already. That’s my two cents. Check out the music clip below, along with her interview with Ryan Seacrest.

yellow-flicker-beat-video

With her hair pulled up, doesn’t Lorde look a bit like the love child of La Roux and Florence Welch? A little, right?

To celebrate her 18th birthday (November 7), the Kiwi singer-songwriter debuts the music video for “Yellow Flickr Beat,” one of her many contributions to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack. Directed by Emily Kai Bock, the clip shows Lorde swaying her arms and moving her body in her signature uniquely awkward way while staying at some neon-lit motel room. This isn’t your airport HoJo ;)

Yellow Flicker Beat” was co-written by Lorde and produced by Paul Epworth who was responsible for Adele’s Academy Award-winning “Skyfall.” Should we prepare ourselves to see Lorde accepting an Oscar come February 2015? Check out the clip below.

Up until now, with the exception of the Entertainment Weekly cover, we’ve only seen Meryl Streep as the haggard old witch. In a brand new trailer for Into The Woods, the 65-year-old is serving bewitching glamor fierceness. Blue hair is very becoming on her.

If that wasn’t enough, we get to hear more of Meryl belting Stephen Sondheim’s beautiful melodies. This Rob Marshall-directed musical (Chicago) is definitely a better fit for her voice than Mamma Mia. Could nomination number 19 be far behind?

Disney’s big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine‘s 1987 Broadway smash hits theaters on December 25. It stars a whackload of Hollywood heavyweights including Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp.

Sorry Jay Z and Will Smith, but Into The Woods is the musical event of the year and not your Annie remake which I predict will bomb. Check out the new and extended trailer for the highly-anticipated film below. It’s a definite must-see.

ariana-grande-meghan-trainor-duets-cma

Country music may have lost Taylor Swift to pop music temporarily, but that doesn’t mean they’ve shunned the genre. If you can’t beat them, join them, right?

During the 2014 CMAs, two of country music’s biggest stars teamed up with a pop star each to perform a current smash. Ariana Grande joined Little Big Town after the group performed “Day Drinking.” Together they sang “Bang Bang” which was beyond awkward IMHO. The only thing that would’ve made it more so is if Nicki Minaj popped up instead of Grande. Watching Little Big Town sing the song’s lyrics was like watching your aunts and uncles getting up on stage at your sweet sixteen party.

The other pop-country duet of the night consisted of Meghan Trainor being joined by Miranda Lambert to sing “All About The Bass.” Arguably, this was less awkward but it still had its moments. Perhaps, it felt more at ease since because Trainor lived in Nashville at one point and has written tracks for country acts like Rascal Flatts. Check out both performances below and share your two cents.

Immediately after her performance at the CMAs, Carrie Underwood debuted her music video for “Something In The Water.” The single is lifted from Underwood’s upcoming Greatest Hits: Decade #1 album due in stores December 9.

“It’s joyous! I can’t help but smile when I hear it. I hope it has the same effect on everyone who listens to it,” the former American Idol winner previously said about her inspirational track.

Directed by Raj Kapoor, the clip features 16 choir members, 12 dancers and the 31-year-old country singer modeling three costume changes in a tank full of recycled water. Carrie sports off her growing baby bump while dancers execute stunning choreography around her. At first glance it reminds me of Shania Twain’s “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)” visual which featured everyone Riverdancing their little hearts out in water.

Check out the music video below. It’s relatively simple but effective and beautiful.

taylor-swift-1989

The numbers are in… and they’re huge. Taylor Swift moved a whopping 1.287 million copies of 1989 during its first week. Swift’s fifth studio album easily topped the Billboard 200 albums chart and netted the largest sales week for an album since 2002. It’s also her career best, passing Red‘s total of 1.208 million

1989 is the 24-year-old’s fourth No. 1 album, following Red (in 2012), Speak Now (2010) and Fearless (2008). Before the final numbers were tallied, there was some speculation she could pass Britney Spears’ 1.319 million bow of Oops!… I Did It Again in 2000. Had she done so, she would’ve set the record for highest first-week album sales tally by a female artist. It’s quite impressive she came close given declining numbers for album sales these days.

Taylor did however score a record of her own. She becomes the only act to earn three, million-selling opening weeks for an album. Both Red and Speak Now notched million plus opening frames with 1.208 million and 1.047 million respectively. It’s clear, Swifties remained loyal to their queen despite going full pop.
