YouTube recently compiled the most-played music videos for the first half of 2014. Not surprisingly with the entire planet having World Cup fever, a couple official anthems by Pitbull and Shakira for the sporting event cracked the Top 10. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer also snatched a second spot thanks to her collaboration “Can’t Remember To Forget You” with Rihanna.

Frozen‘s “Let It Go” sing-a-long version, Chainsmokers viral “#SELFIE” and Iggy Azalea also made the cut. The honor for most-played video though goes to Katy Perry. Her “Dark Horse” visual has amassed a staggering 485 million plays. Check out the Top 10 below.

DJ Earworm is arguably one of the best, if not best, mashup artist around. I first stumbled upon him years ago with one of his year-end mashups incorporating the year’s Top 25 hits. Luckily for us, he graces us with random creations throughout the year.

His latest masterpiece titled “Mash Up For What?” incorporates inescapable smashes by Iggy Azalea, Jason Derulo, Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande and DJ Snake. Give his latest a listen below. It’s one of his better ones for sure.

Listen To Jason Derulo’s New Album In Its Entirety

Jason Derulo drops his new album, Talk Dirty, today. Technically, it’s just a reissue of his last offering Tattoos- a five-track EP. Released seven months after the original, Derulo collaborated with producers including Timbaland and The Cataracs to create brand new material to be released specifically for the U.S. version of the album.

Naturally his Top 10 hit, “Talk Dirty,” is included. I really didn’t want to like the 2 Chainz-assisted single but it grew on me massively. I’m not alone. It’s practically inescapable, playing on radio, television shows, sports arenas and even at a financial institution I did some banking recently. After quickly checking out Talk Dirty, I have a feeling some of his other tracks will do the same. Give his entire album a listen below.

Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo Have Vertigo On New Duet

In: Donovan, Music

Both Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo feature duets with each other on their upcoming albums. While the American Idol Season 6 winner teased “Before It Breaks” weeks ago, it’s Derulo’s Tattoos duet that’s surfaced in full first. It’s clear Jason is smitten with Jordin. His current official single “Marry Me” is about how he imagines proposing to his girlfriend in the future. Now, he’s making beautiful music with her. The two definitely have chemistry in and out of the recording studio.

Vertigo” isn’t what you’d expect from Jason’s typical dance-oriented fare. Instead, it’s on the simpler side with very minimal production. Even though I’m sometimes dead inside, I’m a sucker for slow-tempo duets. So this one is right up my alley. Give it a listen below.

How romantic would it be to have someone write a song about you? And not in a Taylor Swift bitter ex-girlfriend kind of way, because that would suck. Rather, have one telling the world just how fantastic you are. Jordin Sparks is lucky to have not only have someone so in love with her, but also have a guy who’s a talented songwriter.

Even though Jason Derulo and Sparks aren’t engaged (yet), the R&B singer debuted a new track where he declares his love to the woman he loves and how he imagines his wedding proposal will be with the American Idol Season 6 winner. “We’ll forever be in love, so there ain’t no need to rush,” Derulo tells his lady. “But one day I wont be able to ask you loud enough. I’ll say, ‘Will you marry me?’” “Marry Me” is the second cut from his upcoming effort, Tattoos. Give the romantic track a listen below.

She’s been behind some of the biggest hits in recent memory. In only makes sense that Bonnie McKee forge a recording career of her own. The 29-year-old singer-songwriter debuted the music video for “American Girl” and enlisted a few of her famous friends to lip sync for their lives.

Naturally, Katy Perry appears in the clip prominently considering McKee co-penned four of her No. 1 hits- “Teenage Dream,” “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” “California Gurls,” and “Part of Me.” Also making a cameo are other artists she’s written for including Adam Lambert (“Chokehold”), Taio Cruz (“Dynamite”), Ke$ha (“C’Mon”) and Carly Rae Jepsen (“Turn Me Up”).

Too bad Britney Spears (“Hold It Against Me”), Kelly Clarkson (“Hello”), Christina Aguilera (“Let There Be Love”) and Rita Ora (“How We Do (Party)” didn’t show up in the video. Oh well, there isn’t a shortage of familiar names “singing” her lyrics. Joan Rivers and her Fashion Police crew, Kathy Griffin, Lance Bass, George Takei, Nicole Scherzinger, Jewel and her hubby Ty Murray, Macklemore and plenty other randoms make an appearance. Check out the clip below.

Jordin Sparks Cozies Up To Jason Derulo For Glamour

In: Donovan, Music

Jordin Sparks is absolutely beaming in her spread for the February 2013 issue of Glamour magazine. Must be the fact she’s in love. She definitely has the glow about her. The American Idol Season 6 winner brought along her boyfriend Jason Derulo to show off the hottest date night beauty looks. The Sparkle actress cozies up with her beau for photographer Patric Shaw. They could possibly be the cutest celebrity couple around.

Loving Jordin’s hair in the editorial. It’s big, playful and untamed. I’m not alone in diggin’ her hairstyle. Derulo does as well. “She transforms herself with it,” he tells the publication. “I give her names for the people she becomes. When her hair is in a bun, I call her Simone. When it’s curly, I call her Chiquita.” Derulo goes on to share other traits he loves about her, along with opening up about their first dates. Check out more photos from their adorable photo shoot below.

FINAL NIGHT! First off, Tuesday? Really Idol? What’s up with these random Tuesday changeups? This is the second time you’ve thrown me for this loop and I am none too happy about it. At least I have a beautiful girl and sexy man to stare at all night as Phil Phillips and Jessica Sanchez duke it out as the Final Two on tonight’s last performance episode. Singing three songs each- their poor little vocal chords- the kids are laying it all on the line tonight as it all comes down to this. Hilariously, our “big side acts” tonight are Jason Derulo singing “Undefeated” and more awesomely Scotty McCreery, last year’s loser winner who will sing “Please Remember Me“… First off, HOW freaking funny is the title of that song considering this barely talented moonshine making’ yokel has done NOTHING with his title of “America’s Idol” this past year. Oh no wait, he miss-lipsynched at some parade and it was embarrassingly captured on YouTube for the world to see. Slow clap there Southern Sam! Second, let’s take a minute to compare finale live show performances (albeit this is the second to last episode I doubt tomorrow will be much better): Idol gets Scotty McWHO? and The Voice gets frickin’ Justin Bieber? Kill yourself Nigel Lythgoe.

It’s been on the radio and news for a while now that people everywhere are strongly hoping this will be a woman’s year since no girl has won since Jordan Sparks in 2007; that’s five years of WGWG (white guys with guitars) and just what have those guys produced? Dick all, I’d argue! I’ve had my crush on for Phil for a good while now but honestly, I’m all about the ladies at this point and she’s my pick going into this evening. So, without further adieu, let’s see what they have for us tonight as they sing live from the Nokia Theatre in Hollywood!

Click through to see the performances and read my review of the night!
