Maroon 5′s Explosive “Payphone” Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

The lyric video for Maroon 5′s “Payphone” was so good, I didn’t even care if the group ever released an actual music video. Now that they have, I have to say I much prefer the graphic novel vibe of the lyric one instead of this over-the-top action clip. I’m all for a big budget visual, but “Payphone” has no discernible storyline. Instead, it feels like Michael Bay cut footage from one of his generic blow ‘em up motion pictures.

In the music video, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine plays a banker who’s pining for a supermodel-looking teller. Yeah, like that really happens in real life. Then when the bank is taken over by violent robbers, Levine decides to play hero and rescue the damsel in distress. Narrowly missing gunfire from the robbers, they escape. Now this is where it gets all wonky. Instead of running to the police, he runs away from them too. WTF? He then steals rapper Wiz Khalifa’s convertible. Obviously, a car chase then ensues, leading up to one big explosion where Levine makes it to the titular “payphone”.

I wonder how much money they blew on this clip. Definitely a disconnect to the song lyrics. Watch it for yourself and see if you understand the symbolic meaning of this mess.

Karmin Says “Told You So” In New Music Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

I admit it. Karmin have made a fan out of me. To be honest, it wasn’t too hard. I was immediately drawn to their Cinderella story of YouTube sensations turned full-fledged pop stars and I love how grounded and down-to-earth this engaged duo have remained in light of their recent skyrocket to fame. Yesterday, this tag team debut their new album titled “Hello” and along with it came the release of a brand new music video for their third official single of the disc, “Told You So.”

I first fell in love with this track when the two performed it on SNL. The futuristic hip hop beat was produced by Jon Jon Traxx. With proper promotion from Epic Records in the right channels, it will definitely become a top ten hit. In the newly revealed clip, Amy Heidemann is a patient and what looks like a mental hospital under the care of fiancé, Nick Noonan. Nick reveals pictures to Amy which give her flashbacks to certain situations. I have to say, you won’t expect the twist at the end. I love that Karmin took a risk in their latest video and I think you will too. Check it out below.

American Idol Season 6 alum Blake Lewis & producer Daniel Wanrooy have just released the music video for their collaboration on the track, “Stay In this Moment” and we’ve got your first look.

The video, directed by Nick Pezzillo was shot in Los Angeles and at the Santa Monica Pier and features a couple that is “living in the moment“. Don’t we all wish we could do that a little more? Honestly, the times that you realize that you actually are living in the moment are the best, and this video highlights some of these types of moments for a couple (played by John Kenney & Marielle Tepper).

I pretty much always love Blake Lewis’ music (this song is no exception) and was thrilled to have the opportunity to interview him in Seattle a couple years ago. Check out the video (and hear the track if you haven’t yet) below.

YouTube sensation turned household name, Rebecca Black has just release a new single and accompanying music video called “Sing It” and we’ve got your first look. The music video premiere on E! News and features a catchy new tune that doesn’t really involve a heavily auto-tuned voice. In fact, I actually don’t hate the song at all.

If I’m not mistaken, her two girl friends from her infamous “Friday” music video accompany her in this video as they go for a bike ride and party with friends. For the most part, Black sings by her lonesome in some front of very beautiful, scenic backgrounds.

I say kudos to Rebecca Black for pushing past all of the criticism and death threats she received and continuing to do what she loves. The internet can be a very hateful place but that hasn’t stopped her from evolving as an artist. I also think that it’s great that big names like the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have all shown their support for her in one way or another. Check out the song and video below.

After already premiering her video for “Big Hoops (The Bigger The Better)” on Muchmusic this past Friday, Nelly Furtado’s new video has finally come available online. When I first wrote about the song, many commented and said they hated the song, but for me, it has grown on me and the video (as is often the case) has made me like the song more.

Nelly struts down the street on stilts in the video, looking sexy as ever. Why stilts? I guess… the bigger the better. Throughout the video we cut to Nelly wearing big hoop earrings as well as champion hoop dancers doing tricks with their hula hoops. By the end of the video, she’s not like a bird… she’s like a giant, taller than skyrises and towering over the city.

Nelly has also released the album artwork and track listing for her upcoming album, “The Spirit Indestructible.” Check that out along with the music video below. The new album comes out on June 19.

I first caught Niré AllDai while attending this year’s White Party in Palm Springs during one of the afternoon pool parties. This girl is full spunk and has the craziest style. During her set, she performed her single Inside Out and finally, the track has received a music video treatment. I have to say, I’m quite impressed.

The track is basically a love song to music as Niré sings about the matrimony of rhythm and musical mayhem. Showing off her keen sense of style of fashion, Niré gives us some amazing outfits while her and her dancers have a little party in a psychedelic desert reminiscent of a Ke$ha video. Check it out below.

Last week, I wrote about my top 10 favorite Destiny’s Child songs & music videos. This week, Ultra Naté (best known for her gay anthem “Free,” who we chatted with a while back) released the music video for her dance track duet called “Waiting On You” with Michelle Williams and we’ve got your first look.

As you’d expect, both of the ladies look fierce in the video. The song has a 90′s dance vibe to it and I’d say that the video was filmed in a very “retro” style (I think that’s the best way to describe it – you’ll see what I mean). Essentially, it’s perfect for playing in the background along with the song at a gay bar. There’s no story, just a lot of fans blowing and lights flashing while the ladies (separately) sing to the camera. I can’t quite decide if I like the song or not. Perhaps it’s one of those ones that grows on you.

Check out the video below and let me know what you think of the song as well.

Before we discuss the actual video, I just wanted to share that Jennifer Lopez’s new music video made history. “Follow The Leader”, a collaboration with Wisin Y Yandel, was the first music clip to have its premiere on Twitter. Whether or not this starts a trend remains to be seen. Maybe the song’s title will prove prophetic if other musical acts do “Follow The Leader” which in this case is J. Lo. Back to the video.

Interestingly enough, I found myself sorta captivated watching it. Lopez channels her inner Zoe Saldana in “Columbiana” (yup I watched that wretched movie) and Parkours all over Acapulco, Mexico. From people’s bedrooms, to apartment complexes to rooftops, Lopez shows off her free running skills. Obviously, all the dangerous stunts weren’t performed by “Jenny From The Block” and instead a body double did all the tricks. That said, the editors did a great job of camouflaging that fact. Watch the video below and see if you can spot her doppleganger. Speaking of camouflage, Lopez gets all tatted up in the clip, sporting a “Lideres” tattoo on her collarbone and dragon-like body art on her back.
