Truthfully, I’ve never been a fan of Conor Maynard. I just chalked him up as the poor man’s British Justin Bieber. With his new, surprisingly good, single I might have to eat my words. It’s part Michael Buble with its jazzy intro mixed in with some old school Justin Timberlake, specifically “What Goes Around…Comes Around” era. When Maynard hits those high falsetto notes, it’s vintage JT.

R U Crazy” is the first official offering from Maynard’s upcoming still-untitled sophomore album. The newly-released music video shows off a more grown up vibe. Dude even gets a little lady loving from a scantily-dressed woman in bed.

In all honesty, I would suggest listening to the track before watching the clip. His stank facial reactions are somewhat distracting. Can’t blame a boy for trying to bring some swagger, but he hasn’t yet perfected his ugly pretty faces. I suggest calling Tyra ;) Check out his video below.

Ellie Goulding Has The Midas Touch In New Clip

In: Donovan, Music

Sometimes a highly-complicated produced music video isn’t needed to accompany a track. If the single is hot enough, sometimes the simple approach is the best route. Not saying Ellie Goulding’s new visual isn’t glitzy. There’s a statue of a woman made of gold who has the “Midas Touch” in the clip. Everything she touches turns to gold. How awesome would it be to have that power?

It was love at first listen the second I heard the 26-year-old’s collaboration with DJ Burns. To be fair, it wasn’t a hard sell given I loved the original 1986 version by electro-funk group Midnight Star. Goulding’s sensual and darker take gave the vintage club track new life. Her cover appear on the the singer’s re-release of her Halcyon album. Check out her latest clip below.

With “Blurred Lines” still topping the charts (11 straight weeks), Robin Thicke has been taking his sweet ass time releasing a follow up video for his monster hit. Understandably so. Why not ride that wave for as long as he can? It probably won’t happen ever again.

Not surprisingly, he’s teamed up with Diane Martel again to direct his new clip. I almost didn’t recognize it was a video collaboration from them given that the women are actually clothed this time. In fact, it’s Thicke who’s topless this time, albeit a brief hot second. Joining Robin in the clip are Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and a bevy of women at some sort of playing field. If you didn’t get enough of his Beetlejuice-like suit at this past weekend’s MTV VMAs, he’s sporting that striped outfit once again. Check out his “Give It 2 U” visual below.

Some songs take a couple of spins before growing on me, while others never really get there. The Saturdays‘ latest single was love at first listen. “Disco Love” played non stop this past weekend during our camping trip and was hands down the soundtrack of the glamping affair.

Disco Love” is the third track from the UK girl group’s long-delayed fourth studio album. It certainly has the potential to match the success of “What About Us,” hopefully giving the group its second UK chart-topper. The accompanying video is everything you’d expect from them. Lots of glamor shots of each of the ladies. Whether they’re having car problems in the desert in 1979 or livin’ it up at a roller disco joint, they’re beyond stunning.

My only complaint is they travel to 1989 during one of the vignettes. In the song lyrics, the ladies never mention that decade. A third verse on the catchy pop track would’ve been killer.

Coming off their worst season to date (ratings wise), it’s not surprising American Idol producers have had difficulties filling seats on the judging panel. They asked Keith Urban back from last season even though it was the show’s worst. Secondly, they’ve reportedly inked a deal for Jennifer Lopez to return after a season hiatus. Hell, they even resorted to bringing back Randy Jackson, albeit in a mentor role, even though he bid farewell to the show last year.

Instead of a huge recording superstar, FOX has tapped a big name behind the scenes to step front and center. E! News is reporting Lukasz Gottwald, a.k.a. Dr. Luke, will fill the remaining vacant slot. Dr. Luke began his career as a lead guitarist for the house band on Saturday Night Live but rose to prominence as the guy behind Kelly Clarkson’s breakout hit “Since U Been Gone.”

While not a huge name, I think Dr. Luke isn’t a bad choice. He doesn’t come with all that celebrity baggage Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj brought with them. This way, the show can shift its focus back on the contestants. With that being said, I still would’ve preferred the All-Star Idol alum panel idea that floated around a few months ago. Don’t you agree?

It’s been over a month since my last Fifth Harmony post. I miss my girls :) Things have been relatively quiet with the X Factor act due to their travels around the country on their Harmonize America Tour. Along with their debut single, “Miss Movin’ On,” the girls have been performing “Me and My Girls” at their concert dates. Personally, I much prefer their second single. It’s more fun, poppy and sassy. Exactly how I like my girl groups to be.

5H just released the accompanying visual for the bubble-gum track on Radio Disney. As the lyrics dictate, the girls get into a bunch of girly fun once together and the parental units are away. They are beyond adorable in their colorful new visual. Check it out below.

N’Sync: Top 10 Songs & Music Videos

In: Music, Patrick

With Justin Timberlake reuniting with his former N’Sync bandmates (Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick) for the 2013 MTV VMAs, it’s the perfect time to take a look back at the delicious boy band pop goodness that made them blow up all around the world.

I still remember the first time I came across N’Sync in 1999/2000. It was actually a commercial for their hit single, “I Want You Back” and how it was available at Walmart – LOL. As the boyband grew in popularity, it became quickly apparent that Justin was the lead and towards the end, the other guys became backup singers à la Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child. Shortly thereafter, JT went solo with his debut single, “Like I Love You” and N’Sync went “Bye, Bye, Bye“. JT later left the music industry to pursue acting and other interests and just this past year treated us once again to his music.

I’ve put together a list of my favorite top 10 songs and music videos from N’Sync below and I’ve also included a poll. Take a trip down memory lane and check them out. The ordering may differ from the way you’d have done it yourself, but my list is based on what videos I liked the best and what songs I still to this day enjoy singing along to when in the mood for some old school boy band pop. Enjoy!

Gotta give Avril Lavigne some credit. I wasn’t feelin’ “Rock N Roll” prior to this, but after checking out the music video I actually don’t mind it.

From the beginning she had me with a tongue-in-cheek Sony phone product placement. The Canadian singer then channels her inner Mad Max in a post-apocalyptic world joined by none other than Winnie Cooper herself, The Wonder Years‘ Danica McKellar. The two go on an adventure which leads to them both making out. Best part of the smooch was Avril’s Kevin Arnold-like voiceover. Hilarious.

Between the slick graphic novel style and comedic elements and Avril’s in-your-face attitude, the Chris Marrs Piliero-directed clip is a winner. It’s fun, flashy, colorful and anything but boring. Piliero’s other credits include Kelly Clarkson’s “People Like Us” and Britney Spears’ “I Wanna Go.” Check out Avril’s latest below.
