Margaret Cho drops a new music album, titled American Myth, on April 29. It showcases her first efforts as a composer. With the assistance of her longtime collaborator Garrison Starr, they filled the album with anthems that are a “glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love, and hate.”

The lead cut, titled “Anna Nicole,” is you guessed it, all about Anna Nicole Smith. The 47-year-old comedian was friends with the late model. They even had an epic make out session on Smith’s 2002 Christmas special. Cho even references that spit-swapping moment on her tribute track.

“This is a wonderful collaboration with Garrison Starr and it’s a requiem for Anna Nicole Smith that is as beautiful and quirky as she was. It’s my version of Candle in the Wind, and about the archetype of someone who is too good for this world that exists in all of us.” – Margaret Cho

Check out the music video below directed by Bryan Mir. Cho navigates her way through a party filled with Anna Nicole impersonators. A little creepy to say the least 😉

If you’ve seen any of the trailers for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, you’ve no doubt heard “Castle.” The Halsey track is played as Charlize Theron emerges in all her royal glory. Naturally, the 21-year-old singer channels her inner Ravenna for the video.

“Castle” is off Halsey’s debut album, Badlands. Her current single is “Colors” but I wouldn’t be surprised if she throws a little promotional weight behind “Castle” given its association with the highly-anticipated sequel.

Check out the music video below featuring Halsey dressed in a gold gown and matching gold accessories.

Everything about this is all just a bit random. As if the idea of superimposing his face on famous works of art wasn’t odd enough, releasing a music video for a track that’s three years old is beyond baffling. Oh that will.i.am! Always keeping us on our toes.

Smile Mona Lisa” featuring Nicole Scherzinger is off the 41-year-old rapper’s 2013 album, #willpower. For the accompanying visual, director Michael Jurkovac brings iconic paintings to life. “Mona Lisa” and “Girl With a Pearl Earring” are just a couple from The Louvre to get the treatment. You’ll never picture the Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece the same way again. Check out the clip below.

The 23-year-old is working that side ponytail like no other as he twirls his little heart out in his latest music video.. Alex Newell is certainly having the time of his life.

Kills The Lights” finds Newell teaming up with DJ Cassidy and Nile Rodgers. The disco-tinged track debuted during last week’s episode of HBO’s critically-acclaimed show, Vinyl– about the music industry in the 1970s.

“The dance music that came out of New York City during that time exuded a spirit, emotion, and energy like no other,” Cassidy told Entertainment Weekly

I love me some disco so naturally, I’m all about it. Check out the track below. Once again, Newell’s vocals soar to astonishing heights.

When I think of paradise, I immediately think of the Greek Islands, the Maldives, Bora Bora or some similar island getaway. In Benny Benassi and Chris Brown’s case, it’s California. The 48-year-old Italian DJ goes for a breezy bike ride with Breezy himself. From the looks of it, it looks like Venice Beach.

“Chris and I were working on this song for a while,” says Benassi to Billboard. “We both always really loved it and believed in it and I am so glad it’s now out! It was amazing to get Chris on a bicycle for the video!”

Paradise” is another collaboration from these two. They previously teamed up on “Beautiful People” which charted quite well in several territories. Their latest is primed to do the same. While I prefer its predecessor more, the new track boasts a great hook and bass-bumping house beat. Give it a sample below.

No disrespect to Bebe Rexha but Nicki Minaj steals the show with her twerking prowess in her new clip. The control the 33-year-old rapper has with her booty is beyond impressive. Let’s just say, her fiancé is one lucky man.

No Broken Hearts” is the lead cut off Rexha’s forthcoming debut album. It’s the second time the ladies have worked together. They previously assisted David Guetta on “Hey Mama.”

I wasn’t feeling the track that much, but the music video has helped a little. Check out the Dave Meyers-directed clip below which features Bebe rocking numerous looks. If you put the video on mute, it could pass for a Calvin Klein jeans ad.

God bless Carly Rae Jepsen. The perky 30-year-old singer continues to release singles from her highly-underrated album, E•MO•TION, despite still not receiving the radio and chart love she so richly deserves. Why the critically beloved LP hasn’t connected with the masses and sold more copies, outside Japan, is beyond puzzling? It truly is one of the greatest music mysteries of our time. Do you have any ideas why?

Boy Problems” is the latest to receive an official release. Solid choice if you ask me. The disco-tinged offering from Sia and Greg Kurstin is one of my favorites.

For the accompanying visual, Petra Collins (Selena Gomez) filmed a sparkly clip featuring Carly Rae and a bunch of girls dealing with their, you guessed it, boy problems. Nothing a little pizza, girl talk and hanging silver tinsel strands can’t fix. Check out the fun clip below. It’s one of her best, plus I’m digging the 80s Pat Benatar hair she’s rocking.

Beyonce’s Protégées Debut New Music Videos

Beyonce is certainly wearing a lot of hats these days. On the heels of launching her activewear line, Ivy Park, the 34-year-old is developing teen artists too. All this in addition to kicking off a new tour and dropping that rumored new album. Busy, busy, busy B!!!

In the latest issue of Elle magazine, Bey discusses the acts signed on her label, Parkwood Entertainment. The sister act of Chloe x Halle and singer-songwriter Sophie Beem were signed last year while rapper Ingrid is a relatively new addition.

The former two acts recently debuted new music videos and both deserve a view. “Drop” by the sibling act is a haunting affair with operatic tones and folk touches. It doesn’t scream radio hit but it’s fantastic nonetheless. Not what I expected from them.

Meanwhile “Skyline” from Beem was co-written by the team who gave us “Airplanes” by B.o.B. Check them both out below. These two acts definitely have a bright future ahead of them.
