An easy and quick way to grab my attention is to sample Mariah Carey, especially vintage Mariah. That’s exactly what Bruce Fielder aka Sigala does for his newest single. And as a result, I’m naturally obsessed.

The London-based DJ pays a little homage to Carey’s smash hit, “Always Be My Baby,” on “Say You Do.” Featured vocalist Imani channels Mariah during the chorus on the future summer smash. With a tropical house bassline, Carey’s memorable hook gets a modern update. Check out the single below which also features DJ Fresh.

charlie-puth-selena-gomez-duet

After numerous teasers but no premiere, I was beginning to worry this duet would never see the light. Finally, it’s arrived and worth the wait.

Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez team up for “We Don’t Talk Anymore” off Puth’s forthcoming album, Nine Track Mind, in stores this week. The track is pretty darn flawless. The acoustic-like production with its breezy vibe is catered for Top 40 radio. If this doesn’t do damage there and on the charts, color me shocked.

Fingers crossed an accompanying visual debuts shortly. These two would sizzle on screen together. Give “We Don’t Talk Anymore” a spin below. The chorus is undeniably catchy.

Selena Gomez Performs Her Hits On SNL

Selena Gomez has really come into her own with her Revival era. She’s all grown up and showing off a much sexier side while promoting her current album. I’m loving this sluttier Selena. Bring it on.

The 23-year-old singer continued her sultry ways with her Saturday Night Live performance. She donned a sexy nightgown to sing her new single “Hands To Myself,” while engaging in a threesome in front of the live studio audience.

In addition to belting out a medley of “Good For You” and “Same Old Love,” Gomez showed off her acting chops during the Bachelor-inspired clip, “Bland Man.” Does she win her man? Watch the clip below to find out.

Since his breakthrough role as Unique Adams on Glee, Alex Newell has crafted a nice respectable recording career. No offense to Lea Michele and crew, but the 23-year-old might be the most successful in terms of music since the FOX musical signed off.

He’s appeared as the featured artist on several dance anthems in 2015 including “Stronger” (Clean Bandit), “Collect My Love” (The Knocks) and “All Cried Out” (Blonde). Next month, Alex ventures on his own with his debut EP titled Power. Newell recently released the first taste and not surprisingly it’s another dance gem.

This Ain’t Over” has 90s house written all over it. It’s a bit reminiscent of the Robin S. smash “Show Me Love.” Coincidentally enough, Alex covered that iconic track a couple of years ago. Check out his new single below and weigh in afterward.

When FOX airs Grease: Live, Jessie J gets the honor of kicking things off. The 27-year-old Brit begins the show by covering “Grease Is The Word” originally sung by Frankie Valli in the 1978 hit musical.

“There’s no pressure like being the first one on stage. I love that rush of the nerves I’m going to get, I just feel very honored and very lucky that I’ve been asked to experience something like this,” Jessie tells Billboard.

For the most part, Jessie stays true to the arrangement of the Barry Gibb-penned tune. Give her rendition a spin in the clip below which features plenty of footage of the cast during rehearsals.

It’s an all-Dutch affair for Tiesto’s new single. The 47-year-old DJ taps Amsterdam-born chanteuse Natalie La Rose. If that wasn’t enough, their countryman Oliver Heldens ups the Dutch quotient even more.

The Right Song” was previously released last year by Tiesto and Heldens as an instrumental dance track with the title “Wombass.” With the “Somebody” singer La Rose on board not, it takes on new life as a soaring dance anthem. Her presence really elevates the single.

Check out the video below featuring the worst custodial janitor ever. She really wreaks havoc while cleaning up an office. I wonder what the workers did earlier to really piss her off 😉

Sia Is ‘Unstoppable’ On New This Is Acting Track

In: Donovan, Music

Another day, another rejected gem resurrected by Sia. Like all the previous tracks we’ve heard from This Is Acting, the 40-year-old Aussie’s latest is another winner. Not exactly which artist rejected this Sia-penned track but clearly they’re nuts. Perhaps, they didn’t have the chops to measure up to the soaring ballad. At least, that’s my guess.

Co-written by Christopher Braid, the powerful mid-tempo track is all about motivation. Given its theme and overall vibe, I have a sneaky suspicion it was intended for Demi Lovato. It could have easily fit on her Confident LP.

This Is Acting, which is filled with tracks originally intended for other artists drops on January 29. Give “Unstoppable” a listen below.

David Bowie Albums Dominate Billboard Top 200 Chart

During his career, David Bowie never topped the Billboard Top 200 chart despite releasing more than two dozen albums. His latest, Blackstar, which was released just days before his passing finally gave Bowie that elusive chart-topper.

Not only did Blackstar enter the chart at No. 1, but nine of his other LPs also entered the Billboard Top 200. According to Billboard, in the wake of his death, Bowie’s catalog saw an increase in more than 5,000 percent. That’s roughly 308,000 in pure album sales and 375,000 in song downloads. Clearly, it’s Bowie mania everywhere.
