Well, this just made my day. Props to German DJ Yum Yum for creating this wicked mashup. It’s my everything right now.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis probably have very little in common with girl group TLC, but their hits songs blend so perfectly together. Thematically, they sorta complement each other. You just know all those “Scrubs” hanging out the passenger side of their best friend’s ride are sporting their “Thrift Shop” finest. Check out this awesome 90s meets 2013 concoction. It’s a perfect way to kick off the weekend.
As an added bonus, I’ve included a brand new image from VH1′s upcoming TLC biopic, Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story. It shows Keke Palmer, Lil Mama and Drew Sidora as the iconic 90s girl group. The trio do a pretty good job of channeling them, especially Sidora as T-Boz. I literally had to do a double take. Check it out below.
If you were on the fence with Drake’s “Girls Love Beyoncé” which he dropped earlier this week, this will win you over. In the Toronto rapper’s original version, he sings the chorus from the Destiny’s Child hit track, “Say My Name,” in between his rhymes. For this mashup, Raleigh, N.C.’s JAYBeatz blends the 1999 single’s original verses and chorus seamlessly with Drake’s lyrical words. In some instances, he combines the lyrics so well, it’s as if Beyoncé and Drake are actually singing to each other. Check out an example below.
Destiny’s Child: “It’s hard to believe that you / were at home, by yourself”
Drake: “No I’m not alone, even though nothing was the same / let me get your ass alone, let me hear you say my name.”
The R&B girl group’s sassy delivery really works well with Drake’s monotone moodiness rap style. I’m not even exaggerating when I say JAYBeatz’s “We All Love Beyoncé” is my EVERYTHING. At least for this weekend it is ;) Check it out below.
After last week’s lackluster episode (IMHO), I’m hoping Glee rebounds with “Feud.” I have a strong feeling it might. Especially after listening to all six tracks from Thursday’s show. The mashups featuring infamous celebrity feuds are pretty awesome. Finn (Cory Monteith) and Mr. Schu (Matthew Morrison) channel their feelings surrounding Emma-gate on stage with an ‘N Sync (“Bye Bye Bye”) and Backstreet Boys (“I Want It That Way”) mashup. Bravo to Ryan Murphy. Having these two characters perform boy band songs is absolutely perfect.
The second mashup involving a highly-publicized feud involves tracks by Elton John and Madonna. His “The Bitch Is Back” is mixed with her “Dress You Up.” The last celeb battle is a recent one and absolute perfect synergy given that Glee airs after American Idol. I never thought a mashup between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj would be possible, but the show managed to pull it off. To be fair, the Carey song is actually a cover of Brenda K. Starr’s classic 80s ballad “I Still Believe” (love, love, love this track).
If mashups aren’t your thing, the episode also has covers of current hits by Tegan & Sara (“Closer”) and Marina and the Diamonds (“How to Be a Heartbreaker”). The latter is performed by Rachel (Lea Michele) and Brody (Dean Geyer). I assume it’s about Brody being a male gigolo. I wonder how much he charges ;) Speaking of that sticky situation, Santana slays it on Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted Snake” while doling out some sage advice to Rachel. Listen to all the tracks below.
I think for the most part I’m right when I say that we gays love a fierce & feisty female character in movies – yeah? Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, Rooney Mara in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo are just a couple great examples of woman that have me giddy with excitement as they take charge and kick some ass in their respective films.
Yesterday, I came across a pretty epic movie mashup that celebrates all of the dangerous women in cinema – the women that you don’t want to f*ck with. The whole compilation is only about two minutes in total but manages to cover 29 different movies where these woman take charge.
Watch the video below and share your favorite actresses and the films they star in where you clearly wouldn’t want to get on their bad side.
Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Rumor had it that DJ Earworm’s music video mash-up wouldn’t go live until December 25. Looks like Christmas came early. The music maestro unveiled his newest masterpiece and it really elevates the previously-released audio.
Ever since, I heard his “United States of Pop” 2009 roundup, I’ve anticipated DJ Earworm’s yearly masterpiece highlighting the year’s biggest tracks. Dare I say it, but I think it’s his best one since his 2009 mashup.
I was in Portland this past weekend and heard this wicked mashup on the radio. Within a few seconds, I had a feeling it was from my favorite DJ artist. And low and behold I was right. DJ Earworm definitely has own distinctive style- upbeat and melodious. Born Jordan Roseman, Earworm has been dazzling us with his annual mash-up since 2007. Check out his 2012 edition, titled “Shine Brighter”, featuring Bruno Mars, Carly Rae Jepsen, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, PSY, Gotye, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, One Direction, fun. and many, many more including Phillip Phillips’ American Idol coronation song, “Home“.
Do you know how many movie trailers were released in 2012? Apparently, 182. At least that’s how many were mashed up in this amazing supercut. Clearly, someone has way too much time on their hands. Patrick usually does most of the movie trailer posts here on Homorazzi. I’m curious to know how many of these trailers he’s seen.
As I watched the six minute clip, I realized I clearly haven’t watched that many movies this year. Even though we get a chance to attend multiple screenings throughout the year, I can honestly say I’ve probably only seen 15-20 of these movies. I’ve handed the screening reigns over to our resident movie critic, Matt. Definitely freed up a lot of my time. Thanks Matt ;)
If you want to see what you’ve missed at the cinema this year, check out the supercut below. It’s never to early to start doing research for your Oscar office pool.
Daniel Kim has just released his mashup music video for some of the biggest hits of 2012, calling it Pop Danthology 2012. The song/video features over 50 songs from the year, cleverly blended together for one giant 8-minute trip down a musical memory lane of 2012.
All of the usual suspects are in the song/video, including Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen, One Direction, David Guetta, and more. One big name I’m surprised was not included was Taylor Swift, with her big hit, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. Also, I wish he had waited a bit longer and included Britney & Will.i.am’s “Scream & Shout” in the mashup as well. I’d say the most recent release that’s included in the mashup is Ke$ha’s “Die Young” track. Regardless, it’s still very good and worth checking out.
As mentioned, the video was done by Daniel Kim who also happens to be from Vancouver, Canada. According to his Facebook page, he’s a self-produced electro house musician who writes, composes, and sings his own music.
I love Kelly Clarkson’s jilted rock pop anthems like “Since U Been Gone” and “Never Again“, but I love it even more when she strips it all away and it’s just all about her voice and fan-friggin-tastic tone. This week, Kelly’s Greatest Hits – Chapter One featuring several new songs hit stores, but the 30-year-old is also releasing an EP titled The Smoakstack Sessions Vol. 2. The first volume was included as a bonus disc of the Deluxe Edition of her last album, Stronger.
The Smoakstack Sessions Vol. 2 includes five tracks performed acoustically. One of them being a mashup of Alasis Morissette’s “That I Would Be Good” and Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody“. The result is one seamless ballad that’s a joy to listen to, especially if you’re a huge Kelly fan like myself. What I enjoy about Clarkson is her love of covering songs by other artists. If you’ve watched her concert, you know what I’m talking about. The original American Idol has a popular segment where she performs a cover based on fan requests. Check out her latest cover below.
