Well, she released the music video for “Glamazon” two weeks early, but I guess it doesn’t really matter since after last night’s absolutely devastating episode in which Latrice Royale was sent home, we now know who the final three are. (Pssst, I knew since before it started. I also know who wins…but I’ll save that for a different post).

As is tradition in the final challenge, the three remaining queens do all the work in a RuPaul music video while RuPaul stands in one place lip syncing her song which she probably did in only one take because she didn’t want to do more. (I kid…sort of). The music videos for these final challenges have all been kind of…bad, I gonna say bad. However, while this one may be “bad” as well, I kind of love it the most. It’s a video game themed music video with the three finalists stomping on all the former queens, as well as every single celebrity guest judge that came onto the show. It’s kind of cute, while I don’t think the finalists are the RIGHT finalists they gave a pretty good performance in this. OH! And the end is fantastic.

If you love David Guetta’s “Titanium” featuring Sia, then you’re going to love Jessie J’s new single. While “Laserlight” isn’t much of a departure for Guetta who produced the track, it’s a different sound from what we’ve heard from the British singer. It’s far more club-driven than her previous Top 40 Billboard hits- “Price Tag” and “Domino“. Jessie’s latest single is off the platinum edition of her debut album, “Who You Are“.

Given that Jessie is busy judging the UK version of “The Voice“, I was a little surprised that she made a music video for “Laserlights“. It’s the umpteenth release from her album. It would make sense to prep a single that could serve as a lead cut from her sophomore album. That said, I do like “Laserlights” and think it’s one of the stronger songs on her CD.

I watched the music video a couple of times, but wasn’t able to decipher a discernible storyline. Scenes of her sitting in a dark movie theater and in the backseat of a car are shown during the verses then during the chorus she’s surrounded by a flood of laser lights. Maybe the concept was just to show her looking glamorous while sporting her toned abs. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. One thing I’m sure about in the clip is she’s still a pitchwoman for vitamin water. The tasty drink is shown on her vanity while’s she’s getting ready. Gotta love product placement.

If you’re not loving Jennifer Lopez’s new track “Dance Again“, you’re not alone. With “On The Floor” being such a huge hit, many expected another home run from RedOne and Lopez teaming up again. They’re the victims of their own success, I guess. Meanwhile, it’s another J. Lo collaboration that has several websites taking notice and singing its praises.

The “American Idol” judge lends her vocals to a duo from her native Puerto Rico. Wisin & Yandel are a reggaeton duo that started their career in 1988. The two have been relatively unknown to the English market, but are making sure that changes real soon. In the past year, they’ve been featured on tracks by both Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias. Now, Wisin & Yandel have landed their biggest coup yet- Lopez guest starring on their lead single from their upcoming album.

Follow The Leader” is an uptempo track that mixes reggaeton beats with an urban-dance bassline. Wisin & Yandel provide killer verses while Lopez delivers a really catchy chorus. It’s muy caliente, if you ask me. Snaps to Niclas Kings for producing this potential smash. Check it out below, but forewarned. You might have the urge to jump out of your seat and bust a move after hearing it.

Last week before a new episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” aired, I shared my Top 5 Debbie Gibson songs. Little did I know then that Donald Trump would end up firing the “Shake Your Love” singer that night. Since, Aubrey O’Day seems to think she’s had a far more illustrious career than Gibson, I thought I’d briefly talk about her time in the girl group, Danity Kane. While I’ve never been a fan of Aubrey, I can’t deny that Danity Kane spurned out a couple of really hot tracks. One of them is even my ring tone for fellow writer Topher.

Danity Kane is arguably the most successful band created from the “Making The Band” series when P. Diddy was in charge. The girl group was the first female group in Billboard history to debut their first two albums at the top of the charts. Who knew? Though they only had two studio albums, they had three Top 10 hits. Unfortunately, group turmoil and Diddy firing a few girls including O’Day led to the group’s demise. Rumors have swirled that a reunion might be in the works since a few of the girls have reconciled recently.

Even though I’m not the biggest fan of O’Day, I couldn’t help but feel for her during last week’s boardroom. Sure, she probably deserved a bit of the tongue lashing, but it went beyond that and was a bit abusive. While it’s one thing for your own teammates to trash you (it’s part of the game), it’s another when Donald Trump starts to jump in. Being the chauvinist that Trump is, he chastised O’Day for crying then just a few moments later praised Arsenio Hall for showing emotion when he tears up. Talk about double standard. I really can’t stand Trump and his contradictory holier than thou mentality (reminds me of an old boss), but I enjoy watching “Celebrity Apprentice“. Can’t Mark Burnett just fire him?

At the end of the episode, O’Day was shown going the elevator despite being part of the winning team. If you thought she was gone for good… she’s not. In the previews, she’s shown participating in this week’s challenge. Hopefully, Arsenio acts like a man and apologizes to O’Day for taking it too far and calling her every name in the book. As mentioned before, she deserved a bit of it, but Hall took it too far and made it more personal than it should’ve. Did you watch the highly-charged episode?

Why drop one music video when you can do two? Canadian rapper Drake debuted clips for both “Take Care” and “HYFR” last night. Despite being released the same day, the two videos couldn’t be any further apart creatively. That said, both are fantastic and should buoy the chart performance of both tracks on the Billboard 100. “Take Care”, which I can’t get enough, is already in the Top 10 and should increase with this added promotion.

Directed by Yoann Lemoine, “Take Care” is a visually stunning artistic and abstract piece filled with scenic shots of snowy mountains and slow-motion images of animals. As Drake explains, “It’s all basically the ups and downs of a relationship but represented in icebergs and fire and animals and just pulsating movement and then you’ve got me and Rihanna very intimate – kissing, hugging.” Very intimate to say the least. The chemistry between these two is very evident. They sizzle on screen.

Taking a different approach for his “HYFR” clip, Drake chose to share an even more personal aspect of his life. The entire piece is based on Drizzy’s passage to manhood. It begins with footage from the rapper’s actual Bar Mitzvah from when he was a child. Then it fast forwards to October 24, 2011 when Drake chose to get re-Bar Mitzvah’d. It was his way to show his re-commitment to Judaism. Mazel. Both clips give a glimpse to different aspects of Aubrey “Drake” Graham’s life. Check them both out below.

I love me some Saturdays and glad they’re finally releasing some new music. The girls took a bit of a hiatus while Una Healy, aka the redhead one, was knocked up by that hot rugby husband of hers, Ben Foden. With Healy delivering a beautiful baby daughter in early March, The Saturdays are back with a brand new music video for their pop dance single, “30 Days“. I have to admit, the single is slowly growing on me and might become an obsession of mine in the near future.

Given that Healy was still preggers during the time of filming, the director takes great lengths to only focus on her face to disguise her baby bump. Out of solidarity, Frankie, Mollie, Vanessa and Rochelle are also filmed primarily from the chest up, much like the promo picture above. Set in a 1950s diner, the girls embark on a round of speed dating. Instead of meeting high-caliber men, they are subjected to geeky men not to their liking. In the end, the quintet forgo the men and chose friendship instead. Oh, how sweet. Personally, I like hot nerds and would’ve given a couple of them my digits. See if you agree.

If you watched “American Idol” tonight you caught the world premiere of Jennifer Lopez’s new music video, “Dance Again“. Correction, you caught a very family-friendly version of it. Producers only showed a short highly-edited version of it. Gone is the orgy scene and Lopez bumping and grinding with her much younger boy toy, Casper Smart. Long-time collaborator Paul Hunter directed the steamy clip.

Hunter has previously worked with Lopez on “Feelin’ So Good“, “My Love Don’t Cost A Thing“, “Papi” and “If You Had My Love“. Speaking of the latter, the dance break segment in “Dance Again” was awfully similar to the one shot in “If You Had My Love”. Has Hunter run out of ideas? That being said, I sorta liked the special effects in the clip. Remember Lionel Richie’s hit, “Dancing On The Ceiling”? Well, certain parts of the clip could’ve been called, “fornicating on the ceiling“. Watch it and you’ll know what I mean.

Once again, J. Lo teams up with RedOne and Pitbull. Last time, the trio collaborated they came up with the megahit “On The Floor“. Will lightning strike twice? Personally, I don’t think so, but I’m willing to give the track a couple more listens. As mentioned before, Lopez casts her new beau in the clip. It’s deja vu all over again. Does this mean, she’ll be walking down the aisle with this one much like she did with Cris Judd and Marc Anthony? I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, watch Jen and Casper fondle each other’s booty while looking like they’ve been glitter bombed by Ke$ha.

The Wanted “Lightning” Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

For all our UK readers, feel free to take a snooze right about now. You lucky blokes have known the goodness that is The Wanted for a couple of years now. Meanwhile, North American audiences have only recently been exposed to them thanks to the group’s first US Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Glad You Came“.

Calan, one of our writers, was an early fan and wrote about them back in October 2010. Shortly thereafter Tyrell jumped aboard, and now I’m officially on The Wanted bandwagon. What’s not to like? Catchy pop tunes with terrific hooks delivered by five cute guys. Speaking of which… hands off everyone, I’m crushing on Max George. Sooooo dreamy.

In anticipation of their first American album set to hit stores on April 24, The Wanted officially offered “Lightning” on iTunes the other day. This track, which was the third single from their second UK album, “Battleground”, was a No. 2 hit across the pond. Will the track fare as well stateside? On paper it should since it has the same writing and producing team behind “Glad You Came“. Watch the music video below and see if it has potential to yield another US hit for The male Saturdays aka The Wanted. And remember, hands off Max George (the shaved head one)… He’s mine ;)
