We all know how Todrick Hall loves showing off his ratchet side. For his latest video though, it’s all about glamooooooooor dahling.

Expensive” finds the 31-year-old YouTube sensation serving up bling to the max with some assistance by a quartet of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums. Kim Chi, Willam, Mariah and Laganja all look as flawless as ever, if not more. They sashay around some high-end boutique while Hall raps about the finer things in life.

Speaking of fine things, those pink glittered Timberlands are everything. I would never wear them, but they are pretty fab. Check out the video below.

Shawn Mendes Debuts Sensational Ballad ‘Ruin’

Just days after debuting his powerful “Treat You Better” music video, where he takes a stand against domestic violence, Shawn Mendes delivers another taste off his forthcoming album, Illuminate. “Ruin” is a beautiful acoustic ballad which finds the 17-year-old Canadian pining over someone who’s already moved on with a new relationship. It’s a bit John Mayer meets Ed Sheeran.

For the accompanying visual, Shawn heads to an empty Madison Square Garden to perform the bluesy number. Armed with just a mic and guitar, Mendes pours his heart out on the stage, emoting each line with passion and gusto. I really love the song and hope it gets an official release. Check out the video below.

There’s just something about Olly Murs. Perhaps, it’s his boyish charm. Whatever it is, I have a little crush on the 32-year-old UK singer. Naturally, I’m all about his latest offering. Especially, given the fact he shows off a little skin.

You Don’t Know Love” is the lead cut off Murs’ forthcoming fifth studio album which is still yet untitled. The mid-tempo bop is fantastic. It actually reminds me of Carly Rae Jepsen’s underrated “Run Away With Me.”

Check out the Charles Mehling-direcited visual below. It follows a heartbroken Olly in Las Vegas reminiscing about a lost love. If he’s looking for some rebound sex, I’m available 😉

Katy Perry Rises For 2016 Rio Olympics Music Video

If you’re not a Katy Perry fan, you better learn to love her latest offering. Especially, if you’re planning on watching the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The anthemic balladRise” will be used by NBC during their coverage.

“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite,” Katy said in a statement. “I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”

It’s no “One Moment In Time” by Whitney Houston or even “Home” by Phillip Phillips, but the Max Martin-produced track isn’t half bad. Personally, I would’ve much preferred something a bit more upbeat than moody, but whatever… it’s not heinous. Give the track a listen below.

When “Good Girls” was chosen as the official theme song for the Ghostbusters reboot, I was taken aback. While tapping Elle King for the gig made sense, given the all-female cast, I was surprised Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott’s cover of the Ray Parker Jr’s classic wasn’t chosen as the lead cut. When I heard the new rendition of “Ghostbusters,” I finally understood why. It’s one hot mess.

After listening to “Good Girls” a couple more times, it’s grown on me. I love the raspy tone of the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer. The accompanying visual, directed by Dano Cerny, also does well to sell the track. While partying it up at a local bar, King grabs a proton pack and captures a couple of ghosts herself. Check out the fun clip below.

Shawn Mendes gets a little political in his “Treat You Better” music video, putting domestic violence in the spotlight. The gritty clip shows the 17-year-old Canadian crooner pining over a girl who’s in an abusive relationship. The dramatic visual ends with a number for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. No doubt, urging those in need to seek help.

Mendes could’ve easily gone for a safe jealousy-themed video for the tropical pop track. I applaud the young pop sensation for releasing a clip with a message. Check out the Ryan Pallotta-directed visual below.

“Hype” marks the third time Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris have collaborated with each other. Their previous collabos include “Dance Wiv Me,” “Holiday” and “Here 2 China.” Their latest offering certainly lives up to its title. The 31-year-old English rapper is in fine form over Harris’ signature beats. The single marks Rascal’s first single since “Love This Town,” released in 2013.

The duo has just released the accompanying visual for the frenetic track. It features Rascal hitting the club and driving around with a bunch of ladies. Meanwhile, Harris works his magic on the turntables in the colorful clip. Check out the flashy video below.

Alessia Cara takes a page from TLC and Christina Aguilera’s playbook for her new single “Scars To Your Beautiful.” The empowering track is in the vein of their hits “Unpretty” and “Beautiful” respectively, which promotes self-love and acceptance. The 20-year-old Canadian singer spoke to Cosmo about the inspiration for the accompanying clip.

“I wanted to do this kind of video for a very long time. Since we had this song — and since we knew it was going to be a single — I had this vision of many different cinematic shots of different kinds of people. I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it’s visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too. But I wanted real shots of real people telling their stories, and showing the story through little vignettes.” – Cara

As she mentions, the visual features a cross-section of people talking about their visible and not so visible scars. From transgender people to cancer survivors, each exposes their past struggles. Even JoJo of “Too Little, Too Late” fame makes a cameo. Check out the fantastic clip below.
