When we last left Troy Sivan’s Blue Neighbourhood visual trilogy, we saw the 20-year-old’s budding romance with a childhood boyfriend end after the father of his lover walked in on the two making out. The father forbade his son from seeing Sivan. Making matters even worse, his former lover found a new girlfriend.

The concluding chapter features the Aussie singer’s beautiful ballad, “Talk Me Down,” the official lead single off his forthcoming debut album. We learn Troye’s former boyfriend’s father has now passed. Though the boys reunite at the funeral, they don’t get an happily-ever-after ending. I won’t spoil the heartbreaking conclusion. Check out the Tim Mattia-directed visual below.

Kelly Clarkson was supposed to hit my neck of the wood last weekend, but the American Idol winner canceled her Canadian and UK dates due to health concerns. The most frustrating thing about that was the fact I was missing my Nick Jonas fill. The Kingdom actor was one of her opening acts. Damn, you Kelly!!!

Though, I’m still a little salty from Clarkson bailing, I have to give her props on her new duet. She sounds sensational on Ben Haenow’s new single “Second Hand Heart.” If you liked Olly Murs and Demi Lovato’s “Up,” you’ll love this is. This folk-tinged track is in the similar vein but much better executed. Plus, you have Kelly, whose powerful pipes are in a league of their own.

For the James Lee-directed clip, we see the X Factor UK winner finding his way back to Kelly using multitude modes of transportation- truck, boat and bike. I’m pretty sure the two never filmed together. They don’t share a single scene together until the end and even then, they’re not in the same shot, minus a back view of a Kelly stand-in. Check out the clip below.

Gwen Stefani returned to the recording studio after a long hiatus when she first appeared on The Voice last year. Sadly both “Spark The Fire” and “Baby Don’t Lie” failed to recapture the same magic as her previous hits. The 46-year-old wisely decided to scrap that never-released album and start from scratch.

It didn’t feel right,” Stefani tells EW “I didn’t feel fulfilled. That record with Benny was done that way because I had just given birth and had just started on The Voice and felt like I should do something in music, but what was I going to do? There wasn’t enough time. So I tried to make a record where I was just kind of involved — which is how a lot of people do it, but it didn’t work for me.”

When Stefani’s 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale ended a few months ago, the 46-year-old singer found herself inspired once again. The first taste off that heartbreak is the touching new ballad “Used To Love You.” Gwen goes for an equally raw approach for the Sophie Muller-directed visual. It’s a single-shot clip where Stefani emotes her little heart out. Check it out below.

Given all his success, it’s shocking that Drake doesn’t have a Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper as a lead artist on his resume yet. He came close with “Best I Ever Had” which reached the runner-up slot back in 2010.

Once again, he’s on the edge of glory with “Hotline Bling.” Wisely, the 28-year-old rapper has released a music video which might give the track a fighting chance of hitting pole position.

“I have never had a billboard number one,” he wrote on Instagram. “If I get my first number one during the month of October it will be the biggest moment of my career to date (in my mind) and if you are looking for me on that particular evening I will be passed out in the water slide that connects to our pool.”

Directed by Director X, the Canadian rapper shows off a variety of interesting moves on colorful sets, including a very unique cha cha. I’m not the only one fascinated with his choreography. His thrusting and bopping has the Internet mesmerized and abuzz. Check out all his moves below.

After his breakthrough hit “Adorn,” Miguel was poised to be the recording industry’s next superstar. Though his appearance on Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful” and his sultry Girls soundtrack contribution “simplethings” continued his upward trajectory, his third studio album hasn’t done as well as he’d hoped.

Though it peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200, Wildheart has failed to produce any radio hits. “Coffee” is the most successful so far, but that only topped out at No. 78 on the Hot 100. Here’s hoping he has better luck with his newest single “Waves.”

The 29-year-old R&B singer attends a trippy raucous party on the other side of a mysterious refrigerator door in the accompanying visual. Watch Miguel demonstrate some slithery dance moves below.

Will Young Debuts Touching ‘Brave Man’ Music Video

Before Kelly Clarkson, there was Will Young. The 36-year-old Brit won the inaugural series of Pop Idol, making him the first winner of the global Idol franchise. Four of his six studio albums reached No. 1 in his native UK. “Brave Man” is the fourth single off his latest LP, 85% Proof.

“It seems extremely brave to be a man in a woman’s body and then decide to do something about this,” Will said of the video. “This video isn’t about selling records or my personal benefit. This video is about taking a moment in time to explore a section of society who stand up for themselves. To tell a story and offer a window through music into someone’s life. I’ve never felt so humbled and proud.”

Directed by Wiz, the powerful music video shows the touching story of a real-life female-to-male transgender. It follows him as he walks naked through the city where he encounters both friendly and unfriendly strangers. He ends up on a beach where he looks at photos of himself when he was a girl. Check out riveting clip below.

While vacationing in Colombia with Marc Anthony, Will Smith stumbled upon “Fiesta” by Bomba Estereo. The 47-year-old entertainer was so taken with the track, he contacted the Colombian band to participate in a remix. The new rap verses he recorded were the first in a decade.

Smith recently revealed he’s back in the studio and has recorded over 30 tracks. If all goes well, he’s also planning a world tour that would reunite him with DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Watch Smith below come out of his musical retirement to get jiggy with it at an epic post-apocalyptic-themed warehouse party. Welcome back, Big Willie!!!

You can’t get more literal than this. DNCE literally has cake by the ocean for their debut single, “Cake By The Ocean.” And a mighty giant cake at that.

The Joe Jonas-fronted band perform their incredibly catchy song at Huntington Beach while the inaugural International Cake Fight Championship takes place. It’s pretty much an excuse to have a squad of bikini-clad babes throwing cake at each other. While there’s plenty of eye candy for hetero men, us homos have the fortune of ogling Internet personality The Fat Jew. Lucky us 😉

Jonas enlisted his supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid to direct the clip. “She’s always had a high creative eye so she came up with concept and we rolled with it,” Jonas says. “She was a good boss.” Check out her directorial debut below.
