Heartbeat Song” was the first of Kelly Clarkson’s lead singles not to crack the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10. I’m sure some heads were chopped for choosing that track to launch Kelly’s Piece By Piece era. Hopefully, she can turn it around with the official second single.

The 33-year-old chose the Sia-penned ballad “Invincible.” Wise decision. It’s by far the best on her seventh studio album. I’m confident it’ll chart much higher than its predecessor’s peak of No. 21.

For the accompanying visual, Clarkson enlisted Natalie Mroczka to direct. The female-empowering clip shows several vignettes of troubled adolescents interspersed with Kween Kelly in an empty apartment. Eventually, they all come together and execute some fairly simple air fisting choreography.

The highlight for me, though, is Clarkson herself. She looks great in her black ensemble. Check out the clip below.

As rumored, the witchy teen flick The Craft serves as inspiration for Little Mix’s new music video. The girl group play awkward nerdy high school students before turning to witchcraft to reverse their social status at school.

The visual, directed by Director X, is a bit literal but it’s fun nonetheless. The song is so catchy, I don’t mind the slightly cheesy concept. I’ve been playing it nonstop since first hearing it. To boot, the ladies look fantastic in the clip.

Speaking of “Pretty Girls,” the British quartet recently threw a little shade with regards to passing on the Britney Spears-Iggy Azalea collabo. “We knew we could do better,” when referring to the track. They clearly looked into a crystal ball, because they dodged a bullet. “Pretty Girls” dropped to No. 38 in only its second week on the Billboard Hot 100.

With that being said, I’d love to hear the demo they recorded. If it’s anything like their Instaoke performance of that track for Capital FM, it’s probably sensational. They also covered “Cheerleader” and “Anaconda” during that interview. Check out their covers, along with the “Black Magic” music video below.

Hilary Duff Debuts Tinder-less Sparks Music Video

The fans have spoken, and loudly I might have. Hilary Duff and her team caved to demands and released an alternate version of her “Sparks” music video. Dubbed, ‘Fan Demanded Version,’ the new clip doesn’t feature any of Duff’s Tinder dates. Personally, I liked the original, but glad there is one without her dates as well.

On a side note, did you watch Hilary perform this track on Ellen a few weeks ago. Love Duff and this new track, but the performance was unpolished and awkward to say the least. Whenever I hear this song now, I keep visualizing Hilary’s out-of-sync arm swings. Someone needs to spend more time rehearsing with her dancers. Check out the performance below and you’ll see what I mean.

She’s written several smash hits including “Hold It Against Me” (Britney Spears), “Dynamite” (Taio Cruz) and several for Katy Perry such as “California Gurls,” “Wide Awake” and my favorite, “Teenage Dream.” Somehow though, Bonnie McKee hasn’t been able to pen one for herself. Her best offering to date, “American Girl,” stalled at No. 87 in 2013. Maybe, her luck will change with her upcoming EP.

Bombastic” is one of four tracks included on her EP. The 31-year-old artist co-wrote it with Sean Walsh, Andreas Axident and rising singer Charlie Puth. It’s not the usual bubbly pop fare she releases. Instead, it’s a bit edgier with almost a metal influence.

For the accompanying visual, she heads to the 80s for inspiration. Channeling Olivia Newton-John circa “Physical” era, McKee goes aerobic but with a raunchier twist. Check out the David Richardson-directed music video below.

With Jennifer Lopez in tow, I fully expected a hard-hitting club anthem. I pictured the two throwing down some sexy choreography for the music video. Instead, Jason Derulo’s duet with the American Idol judge is a breezy summery island-tinged track. It doesn’t exactly scream smash hit, but is solid album filler.

Try Me” is the latest buzz countdown single off Derulo’s upcoming fourth studio album, Everything Is 4. Of the tracks debuted so far, the J. Lo-assisted number falls in the middle. Nothing great, but not awful either. It’s perfect to listen to while relaxing by the pool. Give it a listen below.

Since falling just short of winning American Idol Season 5, Katharine McPhee has mostly focussed on her acting career, snagging roles on Smash and Scorpion. With her CBS drama on Summer hiatus, the 31-year-old is returning to her music roots to take another stab at launching a recording career.

Despite the ultra heinous and tragic artwork (see above), “Lick My Lips,” isn’t half bad. It’s not as good as her underrated “Over It,” but a decent effort for a comeback. Isabella Summers aka Isa Machine from Florence + The Machine wrote the 90s-tinged pop ditty.

For the accompanying visual, McPhee perfectly channels the fun and perky vibe of the song. She goes retro donning a slinky red ensemble while canoodling with some cute blond greaser stud. Check out clip below.

Nicki Minaj Drops ‘The Night Is Still Young’ Video

Nicki Minaj is on fire this week. After premiering “Hey Mama” and “Feeling Myself clips,” the 32-year-old drops yet another video. Once again, it’s exclusively only playing on Tidal.

Like “fetch,” it’s probably never going to happen but bless her heart for being loyal to Jay-Z. Allowing it only to play on the streaming site instead of Vevo has gotta impact Nicki’s bottom line. I’m sure she’s not getting nearly as many views on Tidal, resulting in lower ad revenue. In addition, I’m pretty sure those views aren’t factored into Billboard’s algorithm for their charts. For someone who once held Vevo’s record for most viewed clip in a 24-hour period, I’m surprised Nicki debuted both clips on Tidal this week. She would’ve been wise to upload at least one on Vevo.

The Night Is Still Young” clip is a colorful romp directed by Hannah Lux Davis. If you liked Minaj’s Pink Friday era, you’ll love this pop anthem. Taking a page from Gwen Stefani’s book, Nicki surrounds herself with a quartet of Japanese Harujuku-like dancers for the visual. Check it out below.

As the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race comes to a close, it’s only fitting that two fan favorites from previous seasons remind us they’re still kicking around. Thank God for that. I stopped watching the drag competition early this season and glad Adore Delano and Manila Luzon can remind me of the glory days of RuPaul’s show.

Coincidentally, both these ladies look back in time for inspiration for their latest visual. Delano brings out the acid wash and off-the-shoulder tops to serve some major 80s realness. “Give Me Tonight” is one of my favorite tracks of Adore’s debut album, Till Death Do Us Party. It’s the eighth official release from the LP. Insane.

Meanwhile, Manila goes back even further to prehistoric times. Her giant mammoth tusk titties don’t have anything on Madonna’s iconic cone bra. “Glamasaurus” is a fitting title for the season 3 runner-up’s new clip. It’s Jurassic World meets Indiana Jones on major crack. Check out both visuals below.
