I first picked up my copy of Taio Cruz’s latest album, TY.O, one of the tracks I was immediately drawn to was the RedOne produced club banger, “There She Goes.” The track shows off what both RedOne and Taio do best. Taio’s vocals are clean and crisp on top of RedOne’s banging beats and synths for all-around great weekend party track. For a while, I was wondering if this track would ever become a single and get the video treatment. It looks like the call has been answered.

Released as a single in Germany back in April, the song is to get a UK release this June. The single version features the rap stylings of one of my favorites: Pitbull. In the video, Taio jumps onboard the trend of having animals run and move in slow motion as the love interest female rides a horse alongside Taio is in BMW. While the video is so simple and not my favorite from him, I love the track enough to stomach through this clip. Check out Taio’s new single and video for “There She Goes” below.

Calvin Harris & Ne-Yo Go Global For New Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

They say music is the universal language and based on Calvin Harris’ new music video, I would say that’s true. The Scottish DJ just released the visual for his hot dance track “Let’s Go” featuring Ne-Yo. The clip follows the lives of couples living in three different cities- Tokyo, Rio and Los Angeles. From singing karaoke, doing capoeira, to sparring in a boxing ring, no matter what they do in the day, everyone ends up partying til the wee hours of the night. It’s a simple concept, but captures the track’s good time vibe.

The second I heard “Let’s Go”, I was in love with it. It’s reminiscent of Calvin’s work with Rihanna on “We Found Love“, but harder and more dance oriented. If Harris keeps this up, he’ll give French DJ David Guetta a run for his money in terms of smash collaborations. The track has reached No. 2 on the UK charts but has barely made a dent on the Billboard Hot 100. Hopefully, that’ll all change when he gives it the official promotional push. The track is too good to not become a global smash. Definitely “summer song” potential. Watch the music video below.

Florence + The Machine have just released the music video for “Breath of Life,” the epic theme song on the soundtrack of the highly anticipated film, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ We’ve got your first look at the video bleow!

As I mentioned, the song is pretty epic and I can totally see it getting nominated for an Academy Award. The song was apparently inspired by Charlize Theron’s character Queen Ravenna. When you listen to the lyrics, that totally makes sense. The video shows lead singer Florence Welch, accompanied by a choir and orchestra, as they record the song. Inter-spliced are clips from the movie, with some never before seen footage that have me even more excited for the film.

Snow White + The Huntsman hits theatres on June 1. Can’t wait! Watch the “Breath of Life” music video below.

Sexy Broadway star, Cheyenne Jackson has released his first music video for his debut single, “Drive” and we’ve got your first look. Actually, “Drive” is also the name of his upcoming EP due out in July.

Jackson enlisted the work of Austrian filmmaker Christian Hörlesberger for his music video, choosing to do an animated video as opposed to one featuring his pretty face. The video is actually very cool and I found myself totally captivated. It took four months to make the video and when you watch it, you’ll understand why. On top of that, the song is actually really good and I’m eager to hear what the rest of his EP will sound like.

Jackson’s EP was written with Sia Furler, Stevie Aiello, and Charlotte Sometimes, and the first two singles were produced by Thomas “Tawgs” Salter. Check out the song & video below.

There is no doubt that One Direction have been making a big splash over here in North America. The little boy band that could from Europe who got their start on The X Factor have now become Billboard record holders and have garnered droves of screaming pre-teen fans all across the United States. Boy bands are back baby!

Back in January 2012, the boys of One Direction took to the road to promote their album “Up All Night.” While stopped at the Bournemouth BIC Arena, Louis. Harry, Zayn, Liam and Niall filmed their entire concert for the fans viewing pleasure for the DVD, “Up All Night: The Live Tour.” To help promote the DVD, out in the U.S. on May 29, the boys released a new music video with footage from the concert.

In the newly released clip for “More Than This,” which is one of my favorite tracks on the album, the boys show off their vocal skills while serenading a jam packed arena full of screaming girls (and a few boys I’m sure). The set begins as a college frat house but slowly turns into a backdrop of falling leaves. While I still hope the boys release a real music video for this track, the preview of the live concert DVD is sure to help boost the sales – not like they need it. Check out the new video below.

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.
