With exception to “Automatic” featuring AlunaGeorge, “Working For It” is my next favorite off ZHU’s EP, Genesis Series. The Russian DJ collaborated with producer-of-the-moment Skrillex for the slinky hot track. It also features the vocal stylings of LA-based hip-hop duo THEY.

Wisely, ZHU has released an accompanying visual to promote it. He enlisted director Birdy Ben for the animated black-and-white clip featuring a noir-ish vibe. In the spirit of his current project, the clip combines the work of graphic artists and fan-submitted animated shorts. Check it out below.

Someone pinch me because I think I’m dreaming. It’s been seven long years since the 44-year-old rapper released a track. At long last, Missy Elliott finally dropped a brand new single. Welcome back, Missy!!!

For weeks now, snippets of “WTF (Where They From)” have been floating around due to ESPN using it for their NBA coverage. Elliott debuted the track featuring Pharrell Williams in its entirety today, a day earlier than scheduled.

It’s as high energy as you’d expect from her. I already love it. For the accompanying visual, Elliott co-directed it with her longtime collaborator Dave Meyers. He’s the man behind some of her classic videos including “Work It,” “Pass That Dutch” and “Get Ur Freak On.” This one is as trippy and visually-stimulating as the rest. It’s quintessential Missy. Check it out below.

When it comes to year-end mashups, DJ Earworm is my guy. The San Francisco DJ’s “United State of Pop” masterfully splices together the Top 25 songs of year in one awesome mashup track. Looks like he has some competition on his hands.

Vancouver-based Daniel Kim has crafted an annual mashup of his own. His “Pop Danthology” features hits from Ariana Grande, Adam Lambert, Madonna, Carly Rae Jepson, Ellie Goulding, Justin Bieber, Adele and Taylor Swift to name a few. Over 85 songs were incorporated. It was so jam-packed, Kim decided to do two mashups. Check them both out below.

Almost fifty years in the business, the ever-youthful Olivia Newton-John is still going strong and making history. With her latest single, “You Have To Believe,” the 67-year-old legend just notched a Billboard first. Along with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, who’s featured on the track, the two become the first mother-daughter team to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.

“I am so excited that this collaboration with my daughter and Dave Audé has reached #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart,” says Newton-John. “It’s fun to have another number one at this point in my career but, I am even more excited that it’s with my daughter and that we get to share this together!”

“Having had the chance to work with my mom was such a great learning experience,” says Lattanzi. “Now add to that being #1 makes it icing on the cake – I’m so proud of being a part of such an amazing team!”

To date, the only other mother-daughter Billboard chart toppers are a little country act named The Judds. Heard of them 😉 They reached pole position on the country charts but not on the club one.

You Have To Believe” is a reworking of Newton-John’s chart-topper, “Magic,” from her film Xanadu. It features production from prolific dance maestro Dave Audé.

If you haven’t checked out the music video for “You Have To Believe” yet, watch it below. To catch Olivia live in person, she continues to pack houses at the Flamingo Las Vegas with her ongoing residency, Summer Nights.

I’m curious exactly who on their team pitched the idea to pay homage to the iconic disco flick, Saturday Night Fever, because I love it. Take That do an excellent job channeling John Travolta’s swagger as they strut down the street. And don’t even get me started on the outfits. Even though they’re definitely a throwback, I could wear some of the retro-inspired ensembles today. I’m obsessed with Gary Barlow’s tropical shirt.

Hey Boy” is the latest track off the British group’s seventh studio album, III, released last year. So far, it’s their best-charting single of the LP since the lead cut, “These Days,” which topped the UK chart.

Check out their latest clip below where the now three-man band visit an underground club furnished with a disco ball and lit dance floor. Looks like a fun time was had by all.

English drum and bass duo Sigma drop their debut album, Life, in December. They’ve already shared a few killer tracks including “Changing” and “Glitterball” featuring vocals from Paloma Faith and Ella Henderson respectively. Another well-known artist has been enlisted for their latest offering, “Coming Home.”

Rita Ora might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of drum and bass, but the 24-year-old artist actually got her break in the genre. She appeared on DJ Fresh’s 2012 UK chart-topper “Hot Right Now.” She’s now come full circle with “Coming Home.”

For the accompanying clip, Ora frolics through the countryside with Sigma and a bunch of friends. They cap off the day outdoors by having a cozy dinner together and watching a fireworks show afterward. The visual is definitely going for a holiday-type vibe. Wise considering Christmas is approaching real fast. Check it out below.

Hollow” is the lead cut off the re-issue of her debut album, Unbreakable Smile. The emotional mid-tempo track, featuring infectious foot-stomping and finger-snapping beats, has massive potential to become a huge hit. Love me some Tori Kelly, and hope she can segue from underrated artist to bona fide pop star.

Given the raw nature of the lyrics, the 22-year-old wisely chose to film the video in a sparsely decorated house. Kelly looks sensational as she maneuvers through the rooms with very flattering lighting. Seriously though, the way the light catches her face is striking. Check out the beautifully-shot visual below.

Sia Enlists Karate Kid For ‘Alive’ Music Video

No, not THE Karate Kid of the Ralph Macchio variety. Rather it’s an adorable Asian girl serving up a fierce tutorial in martial arts at some abandoned warehouse. I’m just glad Sia decided to retire Maddie Ziegler. As fantastic of a dancer Ziegler is, it was time to let another bewigged child shine in a Sia clip.

Speaking of casting things aside, I hope the two-toned wig isn’t going to make an appearance in everything released during her This Is Acting era. I’m already sick of it.

The 39-year-old Aussie finally unveiled the music video for her Adele-rejected single “Alive.” I was beginning to think she abandoned the single since she recently debuted her far-superior, IMHO, single, “Bird Set Free.”

Given the relatively simple nature of the visual, I’m not sure exactly why it took so long. The delay certainly hindered the track’s chart and sales performance. Check out the video below.
