Taylor Swift Surprises Fan At His Wedding

How do you get over a breakup? If you’re Taylor Swift, you attend a fan’s wedding. Just days after splitting with her ex, Calvin Harris, the 26-year-old superstar surprised Max Singer and his new wife, Kenya Smith, at their nuptials. She even performed a song and made them an adorable gift.

According to People, Max’s sister Ali had been coordinating the surprise with Taylor over the last few months.

“Back in April, Ali reached out to the “Shake It Off” singer, 26, about the death of her and Max’s mother in a touching letter, telling Swift how her brother had wed his wife in the hospital so their mom wouldn’t miss out on one of the biggest days of her son’s life.” – People

At the wedding, Swift performed an acoustic version of her hit “Blank Space.” Why that particular song? Max and his late mother danced their mother-and-son dance to the smash hit before she passed away. Watch Taylor’s performance below.

It’s still early, but “One Dance” by Drake is an early contender for “Song of the Summer” honors. It’s had a stronghold grip on Billboard Hot 100’s No. 1 slot for weeks now plus it’s practically inescapable. I can’t go anywhere without hearing it playing in the background.

Justin Bieber is just the latest artist to put his own spin on the tropical house-tinged chart-topper. Shawn Mendes and Gorgon City are just a couple who have as well. The Bieb’s version, though, is an official one. It made its debut a Formula 1 party in Monaco at 1 OAK last weekend. The full version has just been released.

Drake did the honors himself by sharing the track on OVO Sound Radio show on Beats 1. The Canadian rapper also shared two new tracks- “4PM in Calabasas” and “Back On The Road.” The latter features Gucci Mane who was just released from jail last week. Check out all three below.

Not to be confused with Danish singer MØ, this M.O (pronounced M point O) is an English female trio. Aside from the sorta annoying name, the group is actually quite fantastic, especially their latest single. Plus, I never met a girl group I didn’t like 😉

Who Do You Think Of?” is a calypso-tinged pop gem. Very catchy and extremely radio friendly. At least over the pond it will be. I’m sorta obsessed with it and think you might as well.

Watch the Charlotte Rutherford-directed music video below.

Since the Ghostbusters reboot is an all-female affair, naturally a woman was called to sing the theme song. While nothing can ever live up to Ray Parker, Jr’s classic “Ghostbusters,” (Bobby Brown’s “On Our Own” wasn’t half bad) Elle King delivers a valiant effort. The 26-year-old singer wisely did a complete 180 from the original and stayed true to her brand of gritty country blues. Thank God, she didn’t go the campy route.

Good Girls” was co-written between Dave Bassett and King. Don’t let the title fool you. The anthemic rock track is all about the opposite. Elle sings about never doing what good girls do and wanting to go out with a bang. It’s all about the bad girls.

In other Ghostbusters-related news, the cast members of the original and reboot will reunite the June 8 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts will join new ‘busters Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones to celebrate the 32nd anniversary of the first film. Be sure to tune in.

Listen to King’s Ghostbusters theme song below. Other artists contributing to the soundtrack include Fall Out Boy, Missy Elliott, 5 Seconds of Summer, Jeremih and G-Eazy to name a few.

Without a doubt, the track off Last Year Was Complicated that most fans were curious about was “Bacon.” Was it really about Nick Jonas professing his love for the meat product? Is he comparing women to a side of pork? Or something else?

“So many people have asked me what the song is about,” Jonas told Capital FM. “A lot of guesses were: it’s the morning after and it’s bacon because you’re having breakfast. That’s not at all what it’s about.”

“The idea is when you are out of a relationship and you start to be okay with the fact that it’s ended. In my case my life was great, its so good that we should throw some bacon on it to make it even better.”

The 23-year-old singer is right!!! Bacon does make everything better. That’s especially the cast with this mid-tempo offering. It’s another silky smooth urban jam featuring some seductive vocals from Mr. Jonas. Check out the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted track below.

Mark my words!!! This infectious track is going to be a major club anthem this summer. Martin Solveig has crafted himself a definite smash.

The French record producer enlisted the vocal talents of rising Australian rapper Tkay Maidza for “Do It Right.” He also wisely chose to incorporate the instrument-of-the-moment, steel drums, with his intoxicating slinky beat. The clanging cowbells are also a nice touch.

Watch the slick visual below directed by Monsieur L’Agent. The colorful building they filmed at is absolutely striking. You have to check it out.

Watch out Fifth Harmony and Little Mix! You might have some competition on your hands courtesy of Kelly Rowland. The 35-year-old former Destiny’s Child singer just released the first promo pic of her yet-unnamed girl group. And based on first impression, they look pretty fierce. At the very least, they don’t look like a trainwreck 😉

Shyann Roberts, Kristal Lyndriette, Brienna DeVlugt, Ashly Williams, and Gabrielle Carreiro were assembled by Rowland on her BET reality show Chasing Destiny. Unlike some other reality shows, Kelly appears to be invested in making the group into a success. “These ladies are very talented and they’re very, very ambitious and excited, and I’m ready for the world to hear them,” she told Chicago’s You & Me This Morning.

Their first single won’t be released by Epic Records until later this year, but you can check out their wicked harmonies on their sensational cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” Give it a listen below and be sure to keep an eye out for this promising act.
