Wisely, Clean Bandit decided to team up again with Jess Glynne. I love Glynne’s voice and have no doubt without her vocals on “Rather Be,” the track wouldn’t have become that global smash that it was. “Real Love” is off Clean Bandit’s reissue of their debut album New Eyes. Currently, the track is only slated for European release.

As opposed to their “Rather Be” video which featured a Japanese fan becoming delirious and experiencing hallucinations, the group went with a decidedly more romantic vibe for their new visual. It features various couples kissing outside the El Rey Theatre at of one of their concerts while the band performs inside.

Check out the feel-good vid below. Jack Patterson directed the clip.

Some longtime viewers of American Horror Story have taken issue with Ryan Murphy changing the show’s theme music for Freak Show. Turns out there’s a reason why.

Season 3 Voice standout Melanie Martinez released her debut EP earlier this year. One track featured on the well-received offering was “Carousel.” Being a fan of the show, Martinez reached out to the show’s producers about using her spooky gypsy-sounding track once she heard of the upcoming theme. A couple of days before the promo aired, the network finally reached out to her. Naturally, she was ecstatic “The whole thing was just crazy,” she told HuffPo.

Melanie just released the accompanying visual for “Carousel.” Naturally it’s set in a carnival environment filled with all things spooky. Directed by Adam Donald, Melanie chases a buff blond guy who ends up deceiving her. Though the clip and beat have an eerie feel, the lyrics are quite sad, comparing the search for true love to going round and round aimlessly on a carousel. Give the entertaining visual a watch below.

alex-and-sierra-little-did-you-know

Alex & Sierra first premiered “Little Did You Know” back in July as a promotional single for pre-ordering their debut album, It’s About Us. I immediately became obsessed with it. The heartwarming ballad is exactly why I fell in love with the adorable duo on The X Factor in the first place. With their album released this week, Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton debuted the video for the song. It appears they’ve promoted the song as an official single. Wise move.

The clip follows the real life couple on one very long night in separate locations. Eventually, they meet up for a touching adorable moment. These two are just too cute for words. I really hope Simon Cowell does all he can to help them out. The album is understated but phenomenal.

On the US iTunes, it’s so far peaked at No. 13. In other territories it’s faring better, topping the charts in Brazil and South Africa and breaking the Top 10 in New Zealand, Singapore and Peru to name a few.

Check out the Jay Martin-directed “Little Did You Know” video below. They also uploaded several tracks off their debut LP on Vevo. Be sure to sample it out.

cheryl-cole-unpretty-cover

Cheryl Cole who simply goes by Cheryl these days drops her fourth studio album titled Only Human on November 10. The 31-year-old is in hardcore promotional mode in hopes of scoring solid first week sales. More power to ya gurrrrrl!!!

In the past week, she’s released the music video for the breezy upbeat “I Don’t Care” and the electro ballad title track “Only Human.” Now comes an out of left field cover of TLC’s empowering “Unpretty” mashed with Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts.”

The result is neither here nor there for me. I like Cheryl, but don’t think the vocals are on point with her acoustic rendition. Watch it below and see if you agree with my thoughts. I’ve also added Cheryl’s recently released new tracks off Only Human as well. Enjoy.

pharrell-wlliams-gust-of-wind-video

The last time Pharrell Williams collaborated with Daft Punk the inescapable hit, “Get Lucky,” was born. Williams once again works with the French duo on “Gust of Wind,” the fourth single off his sophomore album G I R L. It most likely won’t earn the same critical and commercial acclaim like “Get Lucky,” but it’s still an enjoyable listen and the accompanying visual, an entertaining watch.

Daft Punk never appears in the clip but make their presence known as a pair of illuminated helmet-shaped boulders floating in the sky. Shaun of the Dead’s Edgar Wright directs the forest dance party which finds Pharrell hanging out with a bevy of aerialists and dancers on a mountainside.

Known for his unique sense of style, Pharrell’s fashion statement in the video are oversized safety pins accessorizing his sweater. I’m kinda missing his Vivienne Westwood-designed Arby’s-looking chapeau. Anyone else? Check out the fun clip below.

Jessie J. Premieres Scorching Burnin’ Up Video

In: Donovan, Music
jessie-j-burnin-up

2 Chainz pretty much sums it up in the rap interlude, “White girl in the middle, looking like an Oreo.” Even when she’s surrounded with other white girls, Jessie J. is the creamy white filling due to her gorgeous alabaster skin. The 26-year-old looks stunningly fierce in her “Burnin’ Up” music video.

The Hannah Lux Davis-directed visual shows off Jessie’s surprisingly wicked dance skills. Girl slays the tight choreography while wearing tight black latex showing off some major butt cheeks. Naturally, I’m also partial to the scenes where shirtless oiled men serve as props poolside.

While there’s no denying “Burnin’ Up” has a bangin’ beat, I doubt it’ll reach the heights of its predecessor, “Bang Bang.” 2 Chainz doesn’t have the same commercial cachet as Ariana Grande or Nicki Minaj but should still become a moderate radio hit. Give the video a watch below.

ed-sheeran-thinking-out-loud-music-video

Is Ed Sheeran campaigning to be on the next season of Dancing With The Stars or Strictly Come Dancing? It would appear so based on his new music video for “Thinking Out Loud.” The 23-year-old singer shows off his dance moves in a very sensual dance with a young lady in a dimly-lit ballroom. Dude can surprisingly shake his hips and execute lifts. Who knew?

“Thinking Out Loud” is the third cut off his sophomore album, x. While he channeled Justin Timberlake on “Sing,” Sheeran serves some John Mayer realness on the ballad which is bound to become a future wedding song. I wouldn’t be surprised if couples also mimic the choreography. Or at least attempt to. Check out the romantically cute clip below.

If you caught Beyonce and Jay Z’s On The Tour special on HBO, chances are you’ve already watched this. For all you others, here’s your chance. During the taping, Nicki Minaj made a surprise appearance, putting the Parisian crowd in a tizzy. The “Anaconda” rapper delivered her signature lyrical swagger for a remix for “Flawless.”

Normally, I’m not a fan of concert footage being passed off as an official song video, but since it’s Queen B and Nicki, I’ll make an exception. Check out all the flawlessness below. Don’t get it twisted though. I highly doubt either of these ladies #wokeuplikethis ;)
