When it was announced Gwen Stefani would create history by filming a live music video during the Grammys telecast, I had very low expectations. Truthfully, I felt it was just one cheesy gimmick, disguised as a commercial for Target who sponsored it. To be fair, it partially kinda was 😉 While it’s not the best clip ever, given that it was done live, I was pretty impressed.

Stefani undergoes multiple costume changes while navigating through an elaborate set, naturally decorated with Target-esque logos. Given the live nature, there wasn’t any major mishaps, minus a planned skating accident featuring a Gwen body double. That being said, The Voice singer was actually quite skilled during her roller skating segment.

Check out the “Make Me Like You” music video below. The song is really growing on me and reminds quite a bit of The Cardigan’s classic hit, “Lovefool.”

Remember Jay Sean? He had a couple of hits circa 2009 including “Do You Remember” and the smash “Down” featuring Lil Wayne. Loved that latter track. The 36-year-old British singer is back with a killer new single.

Make My Love Go” is Sean’s first major release since splitting with Cash Money and singing with Sony. He hooks up with Sean Paul for a dancehall-infused jam that samples Maxi Priest’s 1990 global hit, “Close To You.” Both Seans previously collaborated on “Do You Remember” in 2010.

Given that he’s with a new label and the potential hit on his hands, I expected more from the video. It’s pretty budget with Sean Paul enjoying a backyard block party. Hopefully, he gets more support from the label when promoting his new track. It could do major damage with the summer months on the horizon.

Jason Directs Himself In ‘Naked’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Someone’s clearly a fan of D’Angelo. Remember the R&B singer’s iconic “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” music where his ripped torso was on display? I do (swoon). I must’ve watched that clip a hundred times.

Jason Derulo replicates the clip by shedding his clothes in his latest visual. The camera pans on his toned physique as the 26-year-old singer stands on a spinning pedestal. In other segments, he’s getting down with K. Michelle. She also goes au naturel in certain scenes.

Check out the sexy clip, aptly titled “Naked,” below which Derulo directed himself.

Aluna Francis and George Reid aka AlunaGeorge recently returned with a killer new track. Not surprisingly, it’s fantastic.

I’ve been a fan of them for some time now. Francis’ voice is beyond mesmerizing. It’s sultry and ethereal at the same time. They broke through in a big way with their global smash, “You Know You Like It” featuring DJ Snake last year. Their follow up, “Automatic” featuring Zhu, didn’t fare too well, but I loved it.

The accompanying visual for “I’m In Control” plays up to the track’s dancehall undertones. Not exactly sure which island nation they filmed the clip, but I’m guessing perhaps Jamaica was chosen. Popcaan who’s featured on the track calls the Caribbean island his home.

Watch the Emil Nava-directed clip below where Aluna engages with locals, rides motorcycles and more.

There’s product placement, and then there’s product placement. Pitbull brings it to a whole new level for his latest music video. It’s more of a Norwegian Cruise Line commercial than it is a promo for Mr. Worldwide’s new single, “Freedom.”

The 35-year-old rapper, flagged with bikini-clad women dressed to represent different countries, shows off all the features of the cruise liner. He’s practically a cruise director in the clip. Not the visual I was expecting for the killer track which samples the 1990 track “I’m Free” by Scottish group, The Soup Dragons. I wanted and expected more.

Check out the NCL commercial music video below. For some reason, I feel like going on a cruise all of a sudden 😉

Lana Del Rey Debuts Lengthy ‘Freak’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

That’s 10 minutes I’ll never get back. Thanks LDR!!!

I could’ve definitely done without the last five minutes. It’s beautifully shot and somewhat hypnotic, but it’s just five minutes of those girls featured in the “Music To Watch Boys To” swimming around in slo-motion to Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune.” I’m sure there’s a deeper meaning, but it flew over my head.

In the first half of the “Freak” video, where the track is actually played, Father John Misty joins Lana Del Rey for a drug-induced haze where Misty seems to be a cult leader. Check out the lengthy visual below. It’s signature Lana.

This release is a bit random. Why now? It’s been over a month since Taylor Swift first released her “Out Of The Woods” music video on New Year’s Eve. I suppose timing doesn’t really matter to hardcore Swifties. They’ll eat up anything she’s serving. It’s already amassed massive views.

Swift and director Joseph Kahn reveal tidbits about their most recent collaboration. Though shot on location in New Zealand, there’s plenty of CGI used to create some of the stunning visuals. With that being said, some old fashioned movie-making tricks were used as well. For instance, the blue dress she’s wearing was dipped in wax to make it appear frozen. Learn more secrets in the behind-the-scenes clip below.

Two summers ago, I was obsessed with “I Got U” by Duke Dumont. That tropical earworm featured an interpolation of Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love.” London-based DJ Sigala offers up a new single that reminds me quite a bit of Dumont’s smash.

Like Dumont, Sigala looked to a diva for a catchy hook. His grand dame of choice is none other than Mariah Carey. He enlisted vocalist Imani to channel Mimi’s smash hit “Always Be My Baby.” She gives Carey’s memorable chorus a modern update. I’ve been obsessed with “Say You Do” ever since I heard it.

Check out the recently-released music video directed by Craig Moore below. The summery vibe has me craving for an island getaway stat. I’m so over this cold weather :)
