Avicii Debuts Olympian ‘Broken Arrows’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Avicii scored big with his folk-tinged smash “Wake Me Up” featuring Aloe Blacc. The 26-year-old Swedish DJ has another potential hit on his hands by once again thinking outside the box. He’s enlisted the Zac Brown Band, for his newest single, “Broken Arrows.” Who knew country-tinged vocals would work so well with dance synths.

For the accompanying visual, director Julius Onah looked to Olympic history for the narrative. The protagonist in the clip is loosely inspired by Dick Fosbury. The track athlete revolutionized the high jump event with an unique new technique which later became known as the “Fosbury Flop.”

Until he won gold at the 1968 Olympics, no one had jumped with their back first. I’m sure Onah took liberties with the real story to make a compelling clip. Did the daughter really come up with the idea? Keep that in mind when watching the music video below.

I Know What You Did Last Summer” seems to be a very popular song title these days. Kelly Rowland assisted 18-year-old Jacob Whitesides with his ballad and now this. This duet, however, features more age-appropriate partners.

Shawn Mendes enlists Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello for his emotional new track. The powerful collaboration is off the Canadian singer’s reissue of his debut album, Handwritten. On a side note, bravo to Cabello for trying a little side project. And by that, I mean both this track and Mendes. He’s kinda cute, but he’ll be hotter when he’s older 😉

The ballad immediately made an impact on iTunes. With the accompanying visual now here, the long-term prospects look good. Check out the Ryan Pallotta-directed clip below where the teen couple walk towards each other during stormy weather.

Meghan Trainor has released four official singles off her debut LP, Title. Three of which have cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. Surprisingly, the title track hasn’t received the same treatment. That is, until now.

The music video for “Title” has finally arrived. It finds the 21-year-old singer hosting a Mr. America beauty pageant. She shimmies and plays the ukulele as attractive men strut their stuff alongside her. Overall, it’s a cute visual.

I get the sense though her camp isn’t entirely happy it found its way online. It’s nowhere to be found on Trainor’s Vevo or official outlets, and has been removed off unauthorized video channels. Check it out below, before this clip gets yanked.

Party Favors” was the first taste off her forthcoming sophomore studio album, Joyride, but Tinashe debuted a music video for her Chris Brown-assisted “Player” first. The sultry urban jam finally gets an accompanying visual and a sexy one at that.

The 22-year-old rising talent hosts a very sexy affair. Girlfriend sucks on a lollipop like no other while boozing it up and dancing seductively with her friends. It’s a bit “Go Deep” Janet Jackson meets “Criminal” Fiona Apple, but saucier.

Check out the clip below. Interestingly enough, Young Thug who’s featured on the track is MIA in the clip. Guess someone wasn’t invited to the party 😉

With both “Heartbeat Song” and “Invincible” bombing, Kelly Clarkson isn’t having the best era with Piece by Piece. By far, her seventh studio album is her worst-selling to date.

Coupled with the fact, the 33-year-old singer canceled a number of tour dates on doctor’s orders due to her second pregnancy, I wasn’t expecting her to restart promotion on the album. But she has. Clarkson apparently hasn’t completely abandoned it.

Kelly has chosen the title track as the third official single. Wisely, she’s changed the arrangement, giving the song a more upbeat production. The new radio version reminds me a bit of “Catch My Breath,” which I love BTW. Check out the accompanying music video below. Hopefully, this will give this era a second wind. Fingers crossed.

After hearing a short preview of “100 Degrees,” I sensed the disco-tinged Christmas track would be a winner. It appears, my spidey senses were bang on. I love it and it will definitely get plenty of spins this holiday season at my household.

“100 Degrees” is taken off Kylie Minogue’s new album Kylie Christmas in stores now. She enlisted baby sister Dannii Minogue for the bass-thumping festive track.

Believe it or not, it’s only the second time the Aussie sisters have hit the recording studio together. They previously covered ABBA’s “The Winner Takes It All” for the British comedy, Beautiful People.

Watch the blonde siblings below having a jolly good time collaborating together in the music video. I bet a Christmas at the Minogue household would be one to remember.

Snakehips has just dropped their latest music video for a catchy new track called “All My Friends,” featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper. In the hook of the track, they sing:

“All my friends are wasted / And I hate this club / Man I drink too much / Another Friday night I wasted /My eyes are black and red / I’m crawling back to you babe.”

Tinashe is on a roll this fall, having just released “Player,” featuring Chris Brown earlier this month and “Party Favors” before that. I have a feeling this track is going to catch on. Give it a listen and check out the video below.

Billy Idol Announces Las Vegas Residency

In: Donovan, Music

I’m currently in Sin City celebrating a friends 30th birthday, but I kinda wish he was celebrating it in a few months instead. I’d love to watch Billy Idol rock it out in person. Bet you never would’ve guessed that I’m a fan of the 59-year-old British rocker, did you? Love his signature snarl.

Idol announced he’s heading to Las Vegas in 2016. Billy Idol: Forever, being held at the House of Blues venue inside the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel, is his first ever Vegas residency. So far only 12 dates have been announced between March to May 2016. Tickets begin at around $80.

Even if you weren’t around in the 80s, I’m sure you’ve heard his music. Anytime there’s a throwback involving the 80s, he’s a favorite go-to. On the series premiere of ABC’s Wicked City, a couple of his biggest hits were prominently featured in the episode.

Speaking of his catalog, I thought I’d share my five favorite tracks. There’s no rhyme or reason. The rankings are purely based on my personal taste. Check them out below and weigh in on which Idol track is your favorite.
