Austin Mahone first premiered “Put It On Me” last year and debuted a cheap homemade visual for it shortly after. While the new clip doesn’t appear to have a huge budget behind it, at least it’s a sign that Mahone’s record label is finally behind him. They shelled out cash, albeit probably not much, to Gil Green to direct a proper music video.

The new one is a black-and-white affair where Mahone puts the moves on a chick who looks a lot like his ex girlfriend, Becky G. Clearly he has a type, or trying to make someone jealous 😉 Midway through, Sage The Gemini pops up deliver the rap break. In the previous DIY clip, Austin lip synced Sage’s parts.

Check out the new video for “Put It On Me” below. While it’s not amazing, it’s a step up from the previous clip. Hopefully, his label has a strategy to promote this on radio. It’s a solid track and deserves a bit of success.

kat-deluna-what-a-night

Just the other day, we heard Jeremih assisting Keke Palmer on “Enemiez,” and now he’s lending a hand, or should I say his voice, to another lady. The 28-year-old singer joins forces with Kat Deluna, of “Whine Up” fame, for a fun little club track.

What a Night” is the latest taste of Deluna’s much-delayed third studio album Viva Out Loud. The track features Jeremih interpolating the Four Seasons classic “December, 1963 (Oh What a Night).” Jeremih certainly loves his samples.

Check out the Tyrone Edmond-directed visual below. The duo head to the club for a night of dancing and debauchery. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but cute. It reminds me of those late 90s R&B music videos.

All Saints Debut ‘One Strike’ Music Video

Let me preface this by saying that “Never Ever” is a personal favorite of mine. I’m really rooting for All Saints to launch a solid comeback. While I realize there’s most likely not a huge budget allocated for music videos, I expected and hoped for more this. Especially, given that it’s their first visual in nearly a decade.

One Strike” is the lead cut off their comeback album Red Flag, due out on April 8. Group member Nicole Appleton’s failed marriage with Oasis singer, Liam Gallagher, served as inspiration for the ballad. Shaznay Lewis wrote it after a phone call with Nicole.

The grainy visual shows the four ladies pretty much just hanging out in front of a backdrop. Check out the simple black-and-white affair below. The spectacular song deserves better than this.

years-and-years-desire-remix-video

Years & Years initially released “Desire” back in 2014. It peaked at No. 22 on the UK Charts. The track which is featured on their debut album, Communion, is getting a second wind. The British electronica trio is re-releasing it again, but adding Tove Lo for a new remixed version.

Years & Years is wise to resurrect the track. It’s actually quite fantastic. Most people, including myself, probably never heard previously. With the group having a bit of momentum due to their smash hit “King” which I love BTW, and Lo’s addition, it’ll have a solid shot to chart internationally.

Check out the music video below directed by Fred Rowon. The group’s frontman Olly Alexander succumbs to his desires, especially during the orgy scenes. I’ve also added an open letter written by Alexander explaining the clip’s sexual imagery.

Keke Palmer Teams Up With Jeremih For ‘Enemiez’

With her acting career in full swing, thanks to well-received turns in Scream Queens and Grease: Live, Keke Palmer is attempting to relaunch her recording career. The 22-year-old entertainer just unleashed her new single “Enemiez” featuring Jeremih.

“Sharing this first single off my upcoming album with Island is something I have been looking forward to for a long time!” Keke told Complex. “I kept the kidz in mind when we shot the video for it, I feel like it shows our many sides… Sometimes we feel like fierce warriors, sometimes fearful, other times sexy and always with fun mixed in! It has singing, acting and dancing, glam and fashion… all my loves. I am so thrilled that Complex wanted to be the first to help me share it with the world! Enjoy…”

Hate the title, but dig the track. It’s predominantly pop with some R&B flair. It should do decently on radio, but can’t see it being a huge smash. With that being said, it’s a very solid effort.

For the accompanying clip, Palmer proves once again, she’s a triple threat. Her singing, dancing and acting skills are highlighted in the Carly Cussen-directed clip. Check it out below. I could do without the dramatic dialogue though 😉

On a side note, I felt I was watching Chili from TLC while watching the clip. Keke was so believable playing her in the VH1 TLC biopic, I can’t shake it from my head.

Katy B hasn’t really made much of an impression here in North America, but she’s done quite well across the pond. The 26-year-old Brit has several Top 10 UK hits under her belt. Truthfully, I’m only familiar with her 2010 track, “Lights On,” featuring Ms. Dynamite.

The English singer-songwriter is back and enlisted a couple of big names with her latest offering- Major Lazer and Craig David. Holy blast from the past. Remember Craig David? I used to love “Fill Me In” and “What’s Your Flava?” back in the day. It’s great to see him back.

Who Am I” is an effervescent dub step-tinged ballad which highlights all their talents. Check out the accompanying visual below.

Zayn Malik Debuts ‘It’s You’ Music Video

Someone clearly has a thing for blonds. And that someone is Zayn Malik. The former One Direction member swaps out current girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, for Nicola Peltz (Transformers: Age of Extinction) as his leading lady for his latest music video. To be fair, Peltz is just a stand-in for Malik’s former fiance, Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards (another blond), who was the inspiration for the track.

“It was therapy for me,” he said. “I just felt like I needed to put myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me, and it did help get me through some s**t. So if it can help somebody else at that time, then that’s cool.”

Directed by Ryan Hope, the black-and-white clip shows Malik pining over Peltz who’s moved on with a new lover. “It’s You” is the second taste off Zayn’s debut solo album titled, Mind of Mine, due out March 25. Coincidentally, or maybe not, that’s the same date he officially left One Direction a year ago. Check out his new video below.
