With the US Open in full swing, I just had to share this clip. It’s a little cheesy given all the tennis video hos, but appropriate given that all eyes are on Flushing Meadows at the moment. Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka for the win!!!

Both DJ Cassidy and Chromeo have an affinity for retro beats from yesteryear. It was only a matter of time before these two acts collaborated. The result is exactly what you’d expect. “Future Is Mine” is funky with a disco-light beat but with a modern touch. American rapper Wale pops up to add a little hip-hop flavor. Check out the clip below.

“From the moment I first heard Chromeo’s music years ago, I knew we shared similar sources of inspiration,” Cassidy explains. “As we became friends, they proved me right. Dave and Pee bring the funk to everything they touch. They literally took the groove to the future…pun intended.”

It’s no secret I love this beyotch. Her debut album Aquarius introduced her to the world, but her sophomore album, I predict, will catapult her to music royalty. It’ll include collaborations with Diplo, Max Martin, Dr. Luke and more hitmakers. The 22-year-old R&B singer just debuted a teaser for her upcoming LP titled Joyride. The clip shows Tinashe in the desert whispering dialogue.

“A big part of it was the focus going into it, which was that we weren’t going to make a lot of songs, and it wasn’t going to be so experimental. We definitely knew what we wanted going in, and we were a lot more efficient in achieving it. I have so much other stuff going on that we really didn’t have any other options!” she told Rolling Stone about her new album.

As she embarks on her new era, Tinasha gave fans one last morsel from her debut album. She filmed a combo music video for “Bet” and “Feels Like Vegas” with the assistance of director Stephen Garnet. It’s just Tinashe working it out in a tunnel and at an underground parking garage. It’s simple but mesmerizing. Check out the music video below, along with the album teaser.

With the 2015 MTV VMAs airing on Sunday night, many artists seized the moment to debut music videos. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas all premiered new clips. Justin Bieber joined in on the action by dropping the accompanying visual for his well-received new single “What Do You Mean?

Given that the Poo Bear and Skrillex co-production has a tropical house sound, I was expecting the music video would be a sunny lighthearted affair. Boy, was I wrong.

Instead, the Brad Furman-directed clip features The Biebs concocting an elaborate prank that involves John Leguizamo abducting his on-screen love interest played by model Xenia Deli. After being bound and gagged, his girlfriend finds herself at a surprise underground skateboarder rave. Now that’s romance ;) Check out the random music video below.

It was a busy night for Miley Cyrus on Sunday. Not only did the 22-year-old singer host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards but she also dropped a brand new album and music video. If that wasn’t enough, Cyrus also engaged in a bitch fight with Nicki Minaj on live television. It was epic and will undoubtedly be played for years to come.

Recently in an interview with The New York Times, Cyrus shared her thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s outrage at “Anaconda” being snubbed in the Video of the Year category. While Minaj clearly forgave Taylor Swift for her comments on that subject (ergo Taylor joining Nicki on stage), she hasn’t given the same courtesy to Miley.

After giving her acceptance speech for Best Hip-Hop Video, all hell broke loose. “Back to this bitch that had a lot of say about me the other day in the press. Miley Cyrus, what’s good?” Minaj said. Cyrus, not one to back down, fired right back, even looking at Nicki’s way when she talked about losers. You have to watch the entire interaction below if you haven’t already done so.

In other Miley-related news, she dropped her fifth studio effort immediately after the show. Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz was released as a free streamable album. Early word regarding her new LP was that it was experimental. And that it is.

The 23-track offering is definitely not pop music. There’s not one radio-friendly mainstream song out of the bunch. I do applaud Miley for taking an artistic risk though, albeit an indulgent one. Listen to the album below, along with watching the music video for “Dooo It.” It’s pretty much a closeup of Miley’s mouth and plenty of glitter.

The “Levels” music video is pretty cliche with all the scantily-dressed women slithering about. But with that being said, it’s watchable due to its interesting art direction and Nick Jonas naturally of course. The 22-year-old singer has never been sexier. Even all covered up.

The Colin Tilley-directed music video is set in an abandoned warehouse. With piles of tires and empty oil barrels as a backdrop, Jonas rocks some slick denim and distressed graphic tees.

I wasn’t a fan of the song originally, but it’s grown on me. This smoldering new visual will further solidify Nick’s quest to become his generation’s Justin Timberlake. Check out the clip below.

By the time an artist releases their album’s fifth single, the accompanying music video is some low-budget affair that might incorporate concert footage. Not the case for Taylor Swift. The budget for her clips appear to be getting bigger and bigger. Her latest is a cinematic masterpiece.

Wisely, the 25-year-old has reunited with frequent collaborator Joseph Khan to direct. Taking inspiration from classic romance flicks like Out of Africa, The Notebook and The English Patient, T-Swizzle cozies up to super sexy Scott Eastwood to give those cinematic pairings from the aforementioned clips a run for their money.

The “Wildest Dreams” video probably won’t break the VEVO 24-hour record set by “Bad Blood” given that it doesn’t have an endless parade of famous friends, but it should do quite nicely. Swift is donating proceeds from the clip to the wild animal conservation efforts by African Parks Foundation of America.

As much as I adore any shirtless moment featuring Eastwood, the scene where Taylor wears that flowy mustard dress is my favorite. She looks absolutely stunning there. Watch the video below.

Rita Ora Enlists Fetty Wap For ‘Body On Me’ Remix

In: Donovan, Music

Fetty Wap currently occupies the No. 8, 9 and 11 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. With that kind of success, it’s no wonder Rita Ora enlisted the 25-year-old rapper for a remix of her current single “Body On Me.” Maybe some of his good luck will rub off on her. Girl is thirsty for a hit.

Chris Brown, who’s featured on the original, still remains on the new version. However, his verses are pushed back to make room for Fetty’s vocals. Surprisingly, Wap shows off his singing talent instead of his lyrical prowess.

Personally, I like the original version more. I’m not a fan of the reworked beat. But who knows? It might grow on me. I originally was ho-hum about “Body On Me” but quickly changed my tune once I saw the accompanying visual. Now, I can’t get enough of it. Give the remix a listen below.

After a greatest hits compilation and delivering a baby, Carrie Underwood is back with a brand new album. Looking better than ever might I add. The 32-year-old American Idol winner looks beyond stunning in her newly-released music video and in the cover art for her forthcoming fifth studio LP, Storyteller. Motherhood definitely agrees with her.

Smoke Break” is the first taste off her new effort. Carrie stays true to the formula that’s made her a country superstar. It’s a feel-good rockin’ country anthem. It’s all about letting your hair down and unwinding after hard times.

Interestingly though, there’s not one person lighting up a cigarette in the accompanying visual. Underwood drives down Nashville roads en route to a gig while vignettes of individuals embodying the song’s lyrics are shown. Check out the Randee St. Nicholas-directed clip below.
