JoJo Debuts Three New Sensational Tracks

In: Donovan, Music
jojo-save-love-new-album

After being shackled by her former record label for years, the 24-year-old’s third studio album appears to be just around the corner. Dubbed the ‘Tringle,’ JoJo unleashed a package of three new singles, signaling her much-anticipated return. The long drought is over finally!!!

JoJo doesn’t disappoint with her new offerings. She shows off her versatility by releasing three very different tracks. There’s the big ballad “Say Love” where her vocals soar. Then we have “Save My Soul,” a mid-tempo track that could potentially be the lead single.

However, my favorite is JoJo’s first foray into EDM on “When Love Hurts.” It’s radio-friendly and could crossover on several charts on Billboard. Check them all out below. They officially become available to purchase tomorrow. Be sure to weigh in on which ones are your favorites.

Milk Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black teamed up with Coca-Cola to produce a heartwarming short film about friendship. Titled “El SMS (The Text),” the eight-minute short film shows the power of true friendship.

In this eight-minute film, a group of teen boys joke and tease each other in the usual high school way about girls, video games and such-like. Two of the boys are especially close buddies, but Rafael is hiding something from his friend Diego– he’s gay. When he leaves his phone unattended, Diego reads a text that surprises him. His decision to cover for his friend, and accept him for who he is, is what cements this true friendship. And, as Rafael points out, gay guys know all the pretty girls. – via Creativity Online

Pereira & O’Dell crafted the campaign that questions what makes a true friend (#VerdaderoAmigo). Though the initiative is targeted at the Latin American demo, the message is universal. It also helps that the film has English subtitles. Check it out below.

When Selena Gomez initially released “Good For You” it featured a rap verse from A$AP ROCKY. However, when the music video premiered, it noticeably left out the 26-year-old rapper. Inexplicably, two months later, an alternate visual including ROCKY has debuted. Random!!! Hasn’t the song already come and gone?

The new version includes all of Gomez’s parts where she’s writhing on a couch, showering and hanging out at some warehouse. A$AP performs his verses while a projector shows images of Selena and other random visuals on the wall. Check out the clip below.

Am I the only who finds it extremely adorable when a geeky-looking guy dances? I would’ve put Ansel Elgort in that category prior to watching this. Surprisingly, he’s a much better dancer than I thought.

The Fault In Our Stars leading man shows off his impressive moves during a dance history lesson for Teen Vogue. Dressed in decade appropriate attire, the 21-year-old busts out the Charleston all the way to the nae nae. Check out the cute clip below.

Despite the oddly-sounding name, Sloggi is among my partner’s favorite underwear brands. They’re not glamorous by any means but he likes how they fit him.

Speaking of fit, German model André Hamann is one sexy outdoorsy dude in the brand’s new lookbook. Too many tattoos aren’t my thing, but they definitely work on Hamann. He’s one of my favorites to follow on Instagram. Check out more pics below of Hamman showing off the brand’s silhouettes.

we-love-disney-soundtrack

Who wouldn’t jump at a chance to sing for Disney? I’m sure the Mickey Mouse studio had no problems gathering this star-studded lineup for this upcoming compilation album.

Produced by David Foster, We Love Disney features plenty of big names to sing Disney classics ranging from The Jungle Book to Aladdin and even Frozen. Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Jason Derulo, Gwen Stefani appear alongside rising stars Tori Kelly, Jessie Ware and Jhene Aiko for this fun project.

The lead single finds Ne-Yo channeling his inner Robin Williams to belt out “Friend Like Me” from Aladdin. However, the track I’m most looking forward to is Tori Kelly’s take on “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas originally sung by Vanessa Williams. Love Kelly, Williams and that movie. It better not be a hot mess ;) Give Ne-Yo’s track a listen below, and check out the album’s official track list as well.

Photographer Tyler Shields makes his directorial debut with Final Girl. The psychological thriller stars Wes Bentley, Abigail Breslin and Alexander Ludwig.

Breslin plays a young woman being targeted by senior boys who kill blondes for no reason. Unknown to them, she’s actually a lethal weapon and turns the hunters into the hunted. It’s in select theaters now and available on iTunes.

TMZ got their sneaky hands on a behind the scenes clip where Shields lands a combination of punches on Ludwig’s rock-hard abs. Dude doesn’t even wince as he’s being pummeled. Granted it’s by Shields and not by Mike Tyson, but still. Check out the oddly sexy clip below.

Hedwig And The Angry Inch Ends Broadway Run

The Broadway revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch was originally only slated to run for a limited 16-week engagement. When it walked away with Tonys, producers extended the musical’s run. The likes of Darren Criss, Michael C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell, Andrew Rannells and Taye Diggs took on the titular role after Neil Patrick Harris vacated the role.

On September 13, the revival will have its final bow. By the time the Broadway show closes, it will have played 22 previews and 506 regular performances, spanning 76 weeks. Not too shabby for what was supposed to be only 16 weeks.

For those who didn’t get a chance to see the production, fear not. Beyond Broadway, a national tour of Hedwig and the Angry Inch will start in San Francisco on Oct. 4, 2016, with productions also being planned for London’s West End and Australia, according to Playbill.
