Coldplay’s Magical New Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Chris Martin has a new leading lady in his life after his separation from Gwyneth Paltrow. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actress Ziyi Zhang plays the main love interest in his band’s latest clip. Martin does double duty, taking on two roles- one as her abusive lover and the other as her assistant.

The phenomenal Jonas Akerlund directs the black and white clip. “Magic” is off Coldplay’s new album Ghost Stories set to hit stores everywhere on May 19. If you like magician flicks like The Prestige, give Coldplay’s new video a look below.

Calvin Harris is such a tease. Among the numerous teasers the Scottish DJ posted on Instagram for his new music video was a photo of himself shirtless in the desert. It’s clear he’s been working out. Girlfriend Rita Ora is one lucky chick. You’d think he’d want to flaunt that body of his. Sadly, all we’re left with is a simple white tee snugging his torso.

Summer” will definitely be a club anthem this Summer. For such a catchy track, I was hoping for a much more entertaining visual. It’s pretty standard with a bunch of women in bathing suits and cut-off denim shorts on display as they hang poolside and watch a drag race (not of the RuPaul variety) in the California desert. Check out the clip below.

She’s often been referred to as the British Rihanna, but in her latest clip, other pop divas come to mind. Rita Ora serves 80s Madonna, Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston in one fun little package. In fact, the 23-year-old reveals she wrote “I Will Never Let You Down” with Whitney in mind mixed with a little P!nk.

“I think this is the perfect song to launch my new album because I wanted to be as personal as possible and honest as possible and I’m happy right now, I’m in a really good place,” Rita Ora reveals in a behind-the-scenes video. “I really wanted people to see how I felt and how I want other people to feel when they listen to my music — happy — so I love the fact that this is such an uplifting love song … it has such a positive message.”

Ora enlisted her boyfriend, Calvin Harris, to produce the feel-good pop track. It’s perfect listening for the upcoming Summer months. This definitely has the potential to surpass “How We Do (Party)” as her biggest hit.

The Francesco Carrozzini-directed music video is equally as entertainingly lighthearted. Rita sports several different outfits and hair styles while accompanied with two Madonna-looking, circa Blonde Ambition era, backup dancers. Rita looks fantastic in the clip, especially with the short bob. Dare I say, she looks sophisticated chic? Check out the visual below.

Beyonce recently finished her Mrs. Carter World Tour but isn’t showing signs of slowing down. She just released an alternate vision for her gem, “Grown Woman.” Why this single never received an official release is beyond me? It’s a masterpiece in my opinion.

For the new version, Bey and her creative team amp up the animation and African-inspired hairstyles and wardrobe. Gone though are Tina Knowles and Kelly Rowland’s cameos. To be fair, Rowland does still make a cameo, albeit her younger self in home video footage, but still. Check out the new clip below which improves upon on the original edit massively.

It was only a matter of time before Pitbull filmed a music video at the Playboy Mansion. That day has finally come. The Cuban-American rapper used Hugh Hefner’s iconic abode as the backdrop for his latest clip, “Wild Wild One.” The folk-tinged EDM track (you can thank Avicii for this trend) has so far only received a cold response. Hopefully, the David Rousseau-directed video will remedy that situation. It’s no “Timber” but it’s a solid offering.

Once again, Mr. Worldwide surrounds himself with a bevy of beauties. This time they come in the form of Playboy Bunnies and Robin Antin’s new Pussycat Dolls, G.R.L. This is the hottest the girl group has looked, especially Emmalyn Estrada and Lauren Bennett. They look even sexier when the video changes locales and heads back to Mr. Worldwide’s hometown of Miami. He swaps out the Playboy Mansion for the stunning Vizcaya Mansion. Check out the visual below.

Earlier this week, Ellie Goulding debuted the music video for her contribution to the Divergent soundtrack. It’s pretty much your standard clip for a YA film. Footage from the movie, specifically of Tris and Four’s relationship, are interspersed with Goulding moving dramatically slow in a foggy forest. Ellie looks great as per usual. I’m kinda digging the tattoo of three birds on her chest. Check out the “Beating Heart” video below.

“The music works on a couple of different levels. On the one hand, there’s music that plays environmentally. Where we landed on Ellie and a couple of other pieces is that they play more to the psychology of the character. When you see the film, Ellie’s pieces speak to Tris, the Shailene Woodley character, to her subconscious and point of view.” – Divergent music supervisor Randall Poster

#DICKPIC Parodies Chainsmokers #SELFIE

Personally, I can’t stand The Chainsmokers “#SELFIE,” but it appears I’m in the minority since the track has cracked the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. Jon Rudnitsky and Brian Lieberman’s video parodying the novelty track is more up my speed. Who doesn’t love revealing visuals of guys posing in practically nothing?

With UK’s testicular cancer research #cockinasock fundraiser sweeping the Internet, this parody titled “#DICKPIC” couldn’t have come at a better time. Check out the boys’ spoof below, along with the original Chainsmokers visual.

Lady Gaga Debuts Trimmed G.U.Y. Music Video

Are you obsessed with Lady Gaga’s 12 minute visual opus? Do you find yourself always skipping to the meaty parts of the clip? You’re in luck. Mother Monster has debuted a trimmed down version of the video to a much more manageable four minutes. In essence, it’s just the “G.U.Y.” portion, omitting “Venus,” “ARTPOP” and the lengthy credits.

The original has already amassed over 18 million views. That will surely give the single a boost on Billboard’s chart. It definitely needs it as the song debuted only at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 Bubbling Under Chart. In other words it’s No. 118 on the main chart.

Once the visual streams have been added in, I predict a Top 20 placing. I would place it higher but the single isn’t selling well on iTunes, struggling to break into the Top 100. If you want to remedy that situation, give the broadcast version of “G.U.Y” a spin below.
