disclosure-sam-smith-omen-music-video

When Disclosure first hooked up with Sam Smith, magic transpired. The undeniably catchy “Latch” became a global smash and introduced the world to these two talented acts. Smith became a Grammy and media darling while Disclosure churned out more club anthems.

The two reunite for what will undoubtedly be another hit collabo. “Omen” is the second single off Disclosure’s Caracal album.

“It was really exciting,” Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence said in a statement. “We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do.”

For the accompanying visual, Ryan Hope was enlisted again to direct the clip. He did four videos for them during this era, two of which have yet to premiere. “Omen” takes place two weeks after the events of “Holding On.”

Check out the Smith-assisted new track below. I’m already obsessed.

Toying with a classic track, especially a much-revered gay anthem, is a difficult juggling act. Bronski Beat’s “Smalltown Boy” addressed key issues including homophobia in the 80s, bullying and loneliness due to family rejection. The accompanying visual was a moving one which featured band member Jimmy Somerville flashing back to the events that motivated him to runaway.

Kate Ryan does an astounding job with her cover. Her vocals over a deep house beat give the track a contemporary vibe but also keeping it quite somber. The same can’t be said for the music video. It’s kind of a host mess if you ask me.

The Belgian dance diva is shown riding a horse before stumbling upon a group of young adults camping. “Runaway (Smalltown Boy)” isn’t exactly a feel-good campfire song. So random?!?!?! Check out the Pascal Baillien and Wim Rombouts-directed visual below.

When you have a smile as infectious as Janet Jackson, that’s all you need. It could light up a room, if not a stadium. The 49-year-old icon flashes her signature smirk in her seductive new music video.

The Dave Meyers-directed clip isn’t full of bells and whistles, but rather on the minimal side. It just relies on Janet simply sauntering around her stunning mansion while executing a couple of dance moves. The rainy backdrop suits the nocturnal vibe of the visual quite nicely. I also love the giant vintage portraits shown throughout. J. Cole who’s featured on the remix also appears in the clip.

Jackson looks as stunning as ever. I can’t believe the woman is almost half a century old. I can’t wait to watch her Unbreakable World Tour which kicks off in Vancouver on August 31. Check out the video below.

demi-lovato-cool-for-the-summer-video

Well hello there, Miss Demetria Devonne Lovato. Someone’s make sure everyone knows that they’re all grown up. Subtle, this is not.

Every pop starlet worth her salt goes through a slutty phase as part of their public coming of age. Miley Cyrus did it during her Bangerz era, Christina Aguilera dropped it like it was hot for her Stripped album and Britney Spears… Well, she’s done it her entire career ;)

Clearly, Demi’s forthcoming fifth studio album is going to be her sexiest yet. The 22-year-old singer comes out swinging with the first visual off the LP, serving legs, face, boobs and other body parts.

It’s also a parade of slinky bikini and latex outfits for Demi in her “Cool For The Summer” video. The Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip is one big romp featuring hot girls and hotter guys kicking it at some sick party. Everyone look so dewy.

I didn’t want to like “Cool For The Summer” but it hooked me. The glossy music video is fantastic and should help the single’s performance on the Billboard Hot 100. Give it a watch below.

“We’re paying homage to the folks that inspired Black Eyed Peas,” will.i.am told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. And indeed they are. If you’re a lover of old school hip-hop, this kick-ass track is a must-add on your playlist.

ODB’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” Digable Planets’ “Rebirth Of Slick,” Black Sheep’s “The Choice Is Yours” and other hits from De La Soul, Beastie Boys, NWA and Onyx are sampled in “Yesterday.” Seriously, I’m obsessed with the track. It’s my teenage years and early twenties in one killer anthem.

The accompanying visual is equally on point. BEP minus Fergie are in a record store, checking out old school vinyls. When a certain track is sampled, the original album cover appears but with Will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo’s faces photoshopped in.

Not sure why Fergie is missing in action. Does this mean the long-awaited sophomore album from The Duchess is actually coming? Check out BEP’s tribute track below.

ciara-dance-like-were-making-love-video

I don’t know how Russell Wilson does it. He must have the will power like no other. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback recently revealed that Ciara and he are waiting for marriage before doing the deed. I’m gay and even I want to bang CiCi, especially after this sizzling visual for “Dance Like We’re Making Love.”

The 29-year-old has perfected the art of seduction. She exudes sex to the nth degree without being all ratchet. Whether she’s doing aerial water aerobics or getting her tango on in the ballroom, the “Goodies” singer is a master when it comes to teasing.

Admittedly, I wasn’t a fan of this track prior to seeing the Dave Meyers-directed visual. But as great music videos should do, it has won me over. I’m obsessed with the sultry jam now. If you haven’t checked out Ciara’s underrated Jackie LP, you should. It’s fantastic.

If this doesn’t bring Carly Rae Jepsen back to the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, nothing will. This Shellback-produced track is beyond infectious. Personally, “Run Away With Me” should’ve been the lead cut off her E-MO-TION album. The problem with the underperforming “I Really Like You” was it was trying to hard to replicate “Call Me Maybe.” Nothing will ever come close to that pop gem.

While a big budget music video would’ve been nice for “Run Away With Me,” the home-video inspired vibe is adorable. The 29-year-old singer shares her playful adventures while visiting Paris, New York and Tokyo. Jepsen definitely has the ‘cute’ market cornered. She looks euphoric and without a care in the world in the clip. Maybe it’s because Tom Hanks is nowhere to be found in this one ;) Check it out below.

Hilary Duff Releases ‘My Kind’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music
hilary-duff-my-kind-music-video

Usually you get this type of visual if an artist has given up on promoting their latest album. If that’s the case, it’s a shame because Breathe In, Breathe Out isn’t half bad.

Hilary Duff releasing this lazy music video for “My Kind” is a tad puzzling. The sugar-y upbeat pop track is one of the highlights on the LP and deserves more. To boot, the dance practice footage appears to be choreography for her other single “Sparks.” WTF to say the least.

Given that her Tinder music video experiment was badly received and now this, clearly Hilary needs better people on her team. Her comeback has been a borderline hot mess. The Younger actress deserves better. Watch her latest clip below and see if you think she’s given up as well.
