Nicki Minaj Debuts ‘Only’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music
nicki-minaj-only-music-video

To coincide with the European and Australian release of The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj premieres the official music video for “Only.” Minaj enlists a trio of hip-hop artists for the Dr. Luke-produced track. Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown all make cameos, but I would’ve rather had more scenes of that buff stud shown in the first few seconds of the visual. Holy woofness!!!

Nicki keeps it relatively simple and avoids anything too controversial for the video. She wears revealing black outfits, mesmerizing Drake and Wayne with her curves while her army of tough-looking females put random men in their place.

Only” has so far only peaked at #27 on the Hot 100. Maybe this clip can help bolster its chart performance. Be sure to buy The Pinkprint when it hits stores next week in North America.

If you haven’t heard her collabos with Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Jessie Ware, be sure that you do. They’re dope. Check out Nicki’s latest clip below.

Olly Murs and Demi Lovato find themselves on opposite sides of a brick wall in the music video for their duet “Up.” Both long to reunite and eventually do after breaking through the dividing barrier. Here’s a tip. How about using the door next time ;)

“Up” is the second single lifted off the British singer’s latest album Never Been Better which has already reached Gold status in the UK. It’ll also appear on Lovato’s special deluxe release of her album Demi. The folky pop track has quickly become a favorite of mine and I play it often during my drives and workouts. Check out the visual below.

Her Sweet Talker era started off with a bang, so to speak with the smash “Bang Bang.” However, despite numerous appearances, performances and interviews on the promotional trail, Jessie J couldn’t take “Burnin’ Up” to the same heights. And that single had an awesome clip visual to go along with it. Will she have better luck with her third single off the album?

The 26-year-old Brit premieres the clip for her latest single, “Masterpiece.” It follows Jessie hustling her way through a typical hectic day. From photoshoots, to encountering adoring fans and other duties required from today’s pop star, she navigates her way through it looking flawlessly. I’m obsessed with her black fringe jacket. Though it looks a little low budget, I kinda like the simplicity of the video. Check it out below.

Earlier this week, Robbie Williams unveiled the cover art for his new album Under The Radar Vol. 1. Fittingly, the cheeky Brit shows off his back side to promote the LP which is comprised of B-sides, demos and previously unreleased tracks. It hits stores on December 8 exclusively on his website.

On that same day, he shared the first track, “Bully.” Unlike his previous hits, this one has a darker tone. Days later, Williams debuted the music video for another track.

H.E.S.” stands for Heavy Entertainment Show. Like “Bully,” it’s another brooding track and not like his previous lighthearted anthems. For the video, Robbie slapped on some black and white facepaint and roamed the aisles of a grocery store. Check out the video below.

First off, congratulations to Sam Smith. The “Stay With Me” singer scored six Grammy nominations for his debut album, leading the pack along with Beyonce who also notched the same amount. I’d be shocked if he didn’t walk away with multiple statues come February 8, 2015.

Echoing the same vibe found on several tracks on In The Lonely Hour, Smith gives “Have Yourself A Merry Christmas” his signature touch. The holiday classic was made famous in the 1944 musical Meet Me In St. Louis by Judy Garland. She would be proud of his cover. Get in the holiday spirit and check out his version below.

At the halfway point of the year, Katy Perry led the pack with the most played music video of 2014. As of November 30, 2014 Katy-patra’s “Dark Horse” clip has been eclipsed. Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX with their Clueless homage passed Perry to take the year end title.

According to VEVO, the “Fancy” clip pulled in more than 380 million views, 140 million of which were in the US alone. The Aussie femcee also makes another appearance on the Top 10 list thanks to her collaboration with Ariana Grande on “Problem.” Overall, the ladies dominated the list by taking the top seven slots. The highest charting man was Rich Gang with “Lifestyle.” Props to Sam Smith for making the cut with his relatively simple clip for his sensational ballad “Stay With Me.”

Check out how Taylor Swift’s shaking, Meghan Trainor and Nicki Minaj butt anthologies fared on the chart below.

dj-earworm-2014-mashup

One of the things I look most forward to at this time of year is DJ Earworm’s annual music video, mashing up the calendar year’s 25 biggest Billboard hits. With the decline of EDM on the Hot 100 chart, Earworm (real name: Jordan Roseman) tells Billboard he went with a more mellower approach.

“The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” says Earworm of the 25 songs he selected for this year’s song. “The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo. And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with. It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”

It truly is remarkable how he weaves ballads like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and John Legend’s “All Of Me” with hip-hop anthems like Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” and Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” along with dance tracks DJ Snake’s “Turn Down For What” and Pitbull’s “Timber.” Check out the DJ/Producer’s latest masterpiece below, along with a list of which tracks made the cut.

“It’s kind of a clash … this punk rock, kind of old-school feeling, club feeling, but [with] this really modern emoji world, and it just looks really cool together,” Gwen Stefani tells ABC News about her new video. The 45-year-old singer isn’t exaggerating. It’s an emoji explosion and then some. This is probably what every tween girl’s text conversations look like come to life.

Stefani debuted the clip for “Spark The Fire” after being joined by Pharrell Williams during a live performance on The Voice. The No Doubt frontwoman enters a colorful world filled with animated characters and Pharrell heads swirling around her. Sounds like a bit of a nightmare, doesn’t it?

The track is off Gwen’s upcoming LP which currently has neither a release date nor official title. I suppose that will all depend on the reception for this track. If it bombs like “Baby Don’t Lie,” I predict her third studio album will stay in limbo forever. With that being said, I feel she has a better shot with her latest. It’s practically “Hollaback Girl” 2.0. Give her new clip a watch below.
