Alessia Cara takes a page from TLC and Christina Aguilera’s playbook for her new single “Scars To Your Beautiful.” The empowering track is in the vein of their hits “Unpretty” and “Beautiful” respectively, which promotes self-love and acceptance. The 20-year-old Canadian singer spoke to Cosmo about the inspiration for the accompanying clip.

“I wanted to do this kind of video for a very long time. Since we had this song — and since we knew it was going to be a single — I had this vision of many different cinematic shots of different kinds of people. I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it’s visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too. But I wanted real shots of real people telling their stories, and showing the story through little vignettes.” – Cara

As she mentions, the visual features a cross-section of people talking about their visible and not so visible scars. From transgender people to cancer survivors, each exposes their past struggles. Even JoJo of “Too Little, Too Late” fame makes a cameo. Check out the fantastic clip below.

Elton John released his 32nd album titled Wonderful Crazy Night earlier his year. His touching new ballad, “A Good Heart,” is lifted off that uplifting LP. As the title suggests, it’s all about love.

“At this time in all our lives, when the world is changing so rapidly and we’re all trying to make sense of everything, I think it’s important to remember that it’s not politicians, it’s not money and it’s not fame which make the world go round — it’s love,” the singer-songwriter told NPR. “It’s something that is so easy to forget. I wanted to reflect that in this song and video.”

Mission accomplished. The accompanying visual is indeed that, a wonderful display of all kinds of relationship, crossing age, race, gender and sexuality. From a young biracial hetero couple to a May-December lesbian romance and more in between, the clip is a touching watch. If you love, love, definitely check it out below.

welcome-to-the-show-video

Welcome to the show indeed!!! Three months after premiering the track on American Idol, Adam Lambert has finally unveiled the accompanying visual. It’s about friggin’ time.

Given the delay, I have to admit I was expecting an elaborate music video for “Welcome To The Show.” Boy, was I wrong. It’s relatively simple with Lambert and Swedish artist Laleh simply emoting their hearts outs in a studio while fancy light effects are employed to add interest. It’s a little basic, but I love me some Lambert, so I’m willing to let it slide.

Check out the “Welcome To The Show” music video below directed by Lee Cherry. For those who love, love Adam, there are a couple moments with the 34-year-old singer sans shirt. Enjoy.

todrick-hall-bob-the-drag-queen-wrong-bitch

Todrick Hall and Bob The Drag Queen previously joined forces for a couple of PSAs for #HIVBEATS. The dynamic duo are back together for an even more wickedly delicious clip.

Wrong Bitch” is a straight-up gangsta tune that is a departure from Hall’s typical whimsical fare. Though inspired by Wicked, the clip serves up more political commentary than fantasy. It’s great to see another side of Hall.

Speaking of the Land of Oz, be sure to catch Todrick’s summer tour based on The Wizard of Oz when it hits your neck of the woods. Reportedly, it’s a semi-autobiographical show that chronicles his life from his childhood in Texas to living the dream in Los Angeles.

Check out his website for dates, after watching his latest music video below.

Lush Life” has conquered numerous foreign territories including Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, Norway and her native Sweden. The global hit hasn’t worked its magic on the Billboard Hot 100 as of yet, but I have a feeling that’s all about to change.

A year after its release, Zara Larsson has released an alternate music video for “Lush Life.” I have a feeling her label sensed the sensational track is picking up steam and wanted to support it. Wise move. It could become a sleeper summer song for sure, given the right promotion.

The 18-year-old rocks several H&M looks in the colorful clip. It could easily pass as an advert for the Swedish retailer. Check out the new clip below, along with the original version. While I appreciate the new offering, I’m kinda partial to the first clip. Watch both and weigh in afterward.

LeAnn Rimes Debuts Video For ‘The Story’ Cover

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy definitely know “The Story” by American folk rock singer Brandi Carlile. The track was covered by Sara Ramirez during the ABC drama’s musical episode in Season 7. Who could forget Ramirez singing to her character Callie Torres, who was injured in a vehicular collision?

It appears LeAnn Rimes is a fan of the Shonda Rimes series. The 33-year-old country singer covers the ballad for her upcoming yet-untitled sixteenth studio album. Here’s what she told Digital Spy about her new single.

“Is a song that resonates with me as WE are all a part of one collective, universal story. I fully embrace the journey I am on and have a deeper understanding of how every piece of my story serves a purpose in my evolution as a woman and an artist. This song is not only a love song but a song of self-acceptance and appreciation for life.” Rimes told Digital Spy

Gotta say, I kinda like Rimes’ cover. It could kick-start a comeback for the singer. Speaking of which, whatever happened to her career. She had such a bright future, but it all got derailed. Was it due to her affair with Eddie Cibrian and her ongoing public battle with Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville?

Check out the Steven Sebring-directed visual below. It’s quite well done.

mabel-thinking-of-you

Remember Neneh Cherry? The Swedish singer who released the massive hit “Buffalo Stance” back in the 80s. Well, one of her daughters is following in her footsteps. Meet Mabel McVey and commit the name to memory. You’ll definitely be hearing plenty from her in the future. Her father is also Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey. So, music is definitely in her blood.

The London-based singer recently released a brand new track, titled “Thinking Of You.” If you love laidback R&B-infused tracks, give it a listen. Her melodic smooth delivery reminds me a bit of Aaliyah. And you know, how much I love Baby Girl.

Check out the music video for “Thinking Of You” below. Like her mom, Mabel has a cool sense of style. I would’ve loved it if she swapped out the hoop earrings for some of Neneh’s signature bamboo ones though :)

This isn’t your daddy’s MILF. Fergie is rebranding the sexually-tinged acronym to one that empowers women.

“Changing the acronym to Moms I’d Like To Follow is about empowering women who do it all,” says Fergie in a statement. “They have a career, a family, and still find the time to take care of themselves and feel sexy. With a wink of course :).”

She’s so serious about the rebranding, she’s even created an Instagram account for the song. I applaud Fergie’s attempt but just like “fetch,” it’s probably never gonna happen.

Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the song, but I’ve somewhat come around. Don’t get it twisted, it’s still not Fergie Ferg’s best but it’s not completely awful either. The music video directed by Colin Tilley, really sells it.

The visual features a cast of beautiful celebrity moms including Chrissy Teigen, Alessanda Ambrosio, Gemma Ward, Tara Lynn, Devon Aoki, Angela Lindvall, Isabeli Fontana, Amber Valletta, Natasha Poly and Kim Kardashian. Peter Porte also makes an appearance as a sexy milkman. Speaking of milk, I like the nod to those iconic “Got Milk?” ads from years ago. Check out the clip below.
