Janet Jackson recently announced she’s resting up due to doctor’s orders. Rumor has it, the almost 50-year-old diva is pregnant. Congrats, if it’s true.

Given that her Unbreakable World Tour is currently on hold due to her rumored pregnancy, this new music video for “Dammn Baby” comes as a surprise. After all, it’s been almost eight months since she officially released a single off her current album. Whatever the reason, as a huge Janet fan, I’m glad she hasn’t given up completley on Unbreakable.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the black-and-white clip is vintage Janet. It’s all about the choreography and Jackson’s signature smile and fierceness. Check out the music video below.

Just days after premiering their “Boyfriend” music video, Tegan & Sara share a new visual to promote their forthcoming new album. And it’s another whimsical fun affair.

U-Turn” is the second taste off their first new album in three years, Love You To Death. The Quin twins turn to Hunx and His Punx frontman Seth Bogart to direct the accompanying vid. Wearing matching jackets, they go for a spin to explore their animated surroundings.

If you enjoy the clip, you’re in luck. The Canadian siblings plan to pull a Beyonce and release a video for each song off the album. Check out their latest below.

Elle King broke out in a big way with her infectious bluesy rock smash, “Ex’s & Oh’s.” Love that song. The 26-year-old rising talent recently released new clips to support two tracks off her debut album, Love Stuff.

America’s Sweetheart” finds King heading back to the disco era for an old school roller skating party. Meanwhile, on the complete opposite spectrum, the southern rock chanteuse opts for stop-motion animation to deliver a Bond-esque type narrative for “Under The Influence.” Check out both clips below.

Beyonce Accused Again Of Ripping Off Another Artist

Plagiarism claims are once again swirling around Beyonce. This time around, she’s being accused of being “too inspired” by visual artist Pipilotti Rist’s “Ever Is Over All” 1997 piece for her “Hold Up” visual. I have to say, after checking out a scene-by-scene comparison, the clips do look quite similar.

In the past, the 34-year-old superstar has been accused of ripping off other artists including Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Lorella Cuccarini’s work for Bey’s “Countdown” video and 2011 Billboard Music Awards performance respectively. Check out her latest alleged copycat act below, along with previous accusations.

If you loved Aaliyah, you have to check out Yuna. While no one will ever capture the magic that was the Princess Of R&B, for me, Pharrell Williams’s protegee sounds like the late “Try Again” singer. I’m a huge fan.

Ever since I heard “Crush” featuring Usher, I’ve been obsessed. With a recently-released remix, I’m even more so. Typically, slow jams make for excellent club bangers when paired with a slinky beat.

On a side note, have you seen Usher’s racy SnapChat– the one where a smiley emoji barely covers his endowment. Google it if you haven’t. Let’s just say Ush has more talents than just his vocals 😉

Check out the Amice Remix of “Crush” below, along with the beautiful black-and-white music video for the original version.

AlunaGeorge Reunites With ZHU For ‘My Blood’

The last time AlunaGeorge and ZHU hooked up, they delivered the fantastic “Automatic.” The two underrated acts team up again for another slick track.

Unlike their previous effort, “My Blood” slows down the pace for a more sensual hip-hop beat. Since it’s a part of AlunaGeorge’s forthcoming sophomore album instead of ZHU’s EP, it makes more sense. The overall vibe fits more with their signature sound than ZHU’s slinky club beats.

Check out the music video for the moody track below which features Aluna, once again, hanging out in her apartment. It’s a bit reminiscent of their “I Remember” visual minus the awesome giant neon pink flamingo.

With regards to his former Wanted bandmates, Nathan Sykes is easily having the most success since the boy band parted ways. His first two solo singles, “Kiss Me Quick” and “Over and Over Again,” cracked the UK Top 20 and both hit No. 1 on the US Billboard Dance Chart. His solo career is definitely off to a great start.

The 23-year-old Brit teams up with American rapper G-Eazy, of “Me, Myself & I” featuring Bebe Rexha fame. The pairing seems odd at first, but “Give It Up” works. The pop-soul number is his most commercial yet and poised to best its predecessor.

“I think it’s a bit unexpected for me to have a rapper feature on one of my tracks, but I love surprising people and G-Eazy is smashing it right now.” – Sykes told PEOPLE

For the accompanying visual, directed by Michael Baldwin, Sykes gets frisky with his lady love, in and out of bed. Someone’s all horned up 😉 Check out the clip below.

Tegan & Sara Debut ‘Boyfriend’ Music Video

Tegan and Sara recently kicked off their new era by debuting two new singles off their forthcoming album, Love You To Death, due out June 3. Both “U-Turn” and “Boyfriend” tracks are fantastic, but I much prefer the latter. The 80s-tinged synth-pop anthem by producer Greg Kurstin has potential smash written all over it.

For the accompanying video, the Quin sisters enlisted actress Clea Duvall to direct. It’s a fairly simple visual featuring the Canadian duo singing in front of different colored backdrops while a frazzled fictional director played by Rachel Antonoff attempts to film them. The clip also features cameos from Parenthood alums Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman. Check out the clip below.
