Rising Artist Spotlight: Tove Lo

In: Donovan, Music
tove-lo-queen-of-the-clouds

With her debut album, Queen Of The Clouds, about to drop on September 30, I thought it was the perfect time to put the spotlight on this talented Swedish singer. What is it about Sweden that churns out so many fantastic pop acts? Robyn, Ace of Base, Icona Pop, Avicii, ABBA and the list goes on. Not to mention IKEA ;)

Born Tove Ebba Elsa Nilsson, the 26-year-old has written songs for other artists including Icona Pop, Girls Aloud, and Cher Lloyd. I have no doubt you’ve heard her infectious single “Habits (Stay High).” 18 months after its release, it’s finally making an impact on the Billboard Hot 100 breaking into the Top 20.

Tove Lo recently debuted two followups- “Not On Drugs” and “Timebomb.” Both tracks have me excited to check out her debut LP. Time magazine touts it as “one of the year’s strongest pop releases.” I can’t wait to watch her show, when her tour hits my neck of the woods in the coming weeks. Check her new tracks below, along with some of her earlier work.

Nick Jonas previously revealed that his girlfriend served as the inspiration for his new track “Jealous” after a night out partying. I’m assuming the former Miss Universe stunner attracted attention from several unwanted suitors. I’m also sure he attracted his fair share of lustful glances as well.

It only makes sense Olivia Culpo appears in the accompanying visual. The 22-year-old beauty queen plays a cello while wearing lingerie as one of her duties in the clip. Meanwhile, Jonas shows off his athletics skills- punching a body bag, batting the sh*t out of a light bulb and playing basketball against a much taller opponent. It’s all very random, including the part where he plays a cab driver. Check out the video below.

Word of Chris Brown and Ariana Grande’s duet surfaced earlier this year. “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” was put on the backburner when Brown was incarcerated again.

Allegedly, Grande’s team wanted to distance their beloved pop princess from Chris’ shenanigans and wanted Ariana’s vocals gone from the duet. It appeared they got their way since the version of “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” appearing on Brown’s forthcoming LP, X, doesn’t include Ariana’s riffs. Instead, it’s some other random chick.

It’s interesting that the video, directed by Brown himself, leaked just days before his new album drops. Shady, shady, shady. Ariana and Chris play a medieval Romeo and Juliet-like couple in the visual. The “Problem” singer even ditches her signature pony. Check out the clip below.

With Summer unofficially over, Calvin Harris has finally released the follow up to his smash, “Summer.” The Scottish DJ steps away from the mic this time around and lets John Newman take over the vocals. Newman is best known for his debut single “Love Me Again.” “Blame” is another winner for Harris and primed to be another chart-topper.

The Emil Nava-directed video begins with Harris and Newman at their respective mansions with scantily-clothed women around them. After that, it’s a bunch of random scenes of attractive people partying in the club. I suppose the clip’s narrative is that the nightlife and copious amounts of drinking are to blame for their tricks. All in all, it’s pretty par for the course for an EDM track. Give it a watch below.

alicia-keys-we-are-here

As she prepares to give birth to her second child, Alicia Keys couldn’t help but think about the world she’s bringing her baby into. The 33-year-old singer decided to put her thoughts in a brand new track titled, “We Are Here.” She talks about Gaza, Israel, Nigeria and other conflicts in the world today.

Whether this introspective ballad is the signaling of Keys’ new era, who knows? I’m thinking most likely not and it’s just a stand-alone single. Check out the accompanying music video below which Alicia premiered on Facebook this week, along with a detailed description about what inspired the reflective track.

channing-tatum-dick-graze

What’s a dick graze and what’s its purpose? Channing Tatum is here to explain it to you in a new promotional music video for 22 Jump Street. It involves… you guessed it, grazing your bro’s crotch. It’s apparently a new gesture to celebrate your bromance. Proceed cautiously though. It’s a fine line between a graze and a grab.

Ladies, don’t feel left out. Tatum’s co-star Jillian Bell joins in on the action and raps about the female equivalent. Watch the hilarious music video below to find out. 22 Jump Street hits iTunes on October 28.

Sometimes simple is best. I wasn’t a huge fan of “On The Rocks,” but the accompanying black and white video has warmed me up to the electro R&B ballad.

The narrative is relatively simple with Nicole Scherzinger distraught over her relationship with an extremely hunky man. Yelling and some ugly crying goes on before the former Pussycat Dolls frontwoman magically tosses her ex off his chair. She then runs into the desert where plenty of glamor shots begin. She may not be able to produce a chart-topper in North America, but girl can toss her hair in the wind like no other. She looks stunning here.

“On The Rocks” isn’t a surefire hit but I’m optimistic it could do some minor damage on the charts. At least over in the UK. Scherzinger seems to have better luck over there. Give the Tim Mattia-directed clip a view below.

Double the booty, double the fun. Jennifer Lopez was wise to swap out frequent collaborator Pitbull with Iggy Azalea on the remix of her new single, “Booty.” This could be the hit she’s desperately looking for off her disappointing album, A.K.A.

The ladies’ “Booty” music video looks to outdo Nicki Minja’s “Anaconda” in the ass department. The 30-second teaser is jam-packed with visuals of Lopez and Azalea’s glistening derrières.

Lopez shared the clip with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on the Today show. I can’t wait to see the entire clip which was directed by Hype Williams. Watch the teaser below.
