Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)

Here’s a preview of the upcoming Ariana Grande single “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea. The track above combines the HQ snippets with the missing pieces from the live version, and well, even in low quality this single is quite frankly, everything.

Lady Gaga selects “G.U.Y.” as the third single from ARTPOP

image

Is the world ready to feast on the new audio and official third single from Lady Gaga’s latest studio album ARTPOP? The pop provocateur has selected the Zedd-produced track “G.U.Y.” to be the next single from the reverse-Warholian experimentation album.

As one of the standouts (if not the standout) from the album, Gaga’s “G.U.Y.”, if executed and promoted properly, should find the singer back in familiar territory, right at the top of the charts. The track features Gaga’s quirky intelligent with its strong feminist undertones, while being instantly addictive. A formula for success that mirrors that of the icon’s biggest hits (“Poker Face,” “Bad Romance”).

The music video, which has already been shot, will premiere on Dateline NBC on Saturday night.

Details surrounding the music video have already been revealed. At least one portion of the music video has been filmed at the iconic Hearst Castle (pictured below). These scenes will feature Andy Cohen and the entire female cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. More details arose about the music video via Gaga’s official fan website, where she released still image from the visual, which finds what is believed to be a winged (possibly dead?) Gaga lying face-down in a burning desert.

Gaga began promotion of the music video on the Today Show this morning where she revealed a promising Behind The Scenes sneak peak at the upcoming music video. From the looks of it, the visual for “G.U.Y.” will be glitzy, glamorous, and all Gaga.

Interscope Records has now released the radio edit of the latest single, which you can listen to below.

Shakira's dazzles with new anthem "Dare (La La La)"

Low quality snippets of Shakira’s highly-anticipated “Dare” have been surfacing for months, but the anthem has finally arrived in all its glory—And it is spectacular. It might be a little premature to make this prediction so early in the year, but dare I say that “Dare (La La La)” will be the song of the summer.

The track, which was initially set to be the first single from Shakira upcoming self-titled album, finds the Columbian-born singer back on the dance floor. “Is it true that you love me? I dare you to kiss me,” she croons infectiously over the insanely production courtesy of Afrojack, right before the beat rockets away as Shak chants “LA LA LA LA.” The explosion of sound equal parts  mesmerizing and haunting.

The multi-talented singer-songwriter Sia Furler has remained under the radar for most of her career. She’s worked and collaborated with some of the biggest names in pop music, from Celine Dion to Rihanna. She’s been featured on some of pop’s most recent anthems (David Guetta’s “Titanium” and Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones”).

And now, with her latest release, “Chandelier,” her transition from behind-the-scenes diva to full-blown superstar is underway. The track, featuring a mammoth chorus and dazzling backing, is sure to propel Sia to the tops of the charts in the coming months.

Did Iggy Azalea just release the best music video of 2014?

Iggy Azalea channels her inner Alicia Silverstone in the Clueless-inspired, 90s extravaganza for her music video for her latest single “Fancy.” The infectious single follows the underrated, should-have-been international smash “Change Your Life” which featured TI.

The Clueless tribute, which is already creating plenty of buzz, might just be the viral concept that will catapult Iggy to the success she’s deserved for so long now. “Fancy” is the current single from the singer’s upcoming release The New Classic, which is set to be released this summer.

Why Rihanna’s flawless “Fire Bomb” should have been a single

Rihanna’s critically-acclaimed pop masterpiece Rated R, which spawned the number one hit “Rude Boy,” still stands as the most personal and compelling release of her career. The “Rockstar 101”-singer’s sound was leagues ahead of its time, proving to be one of the most innovative albums of the decade. RiRi was experimenting with dubstep before most artists had even heard of dubstep. And yet the album’s crowning achievement, “Fire Bomb,” was never given the credit it deserved, and was looked over as a potential single choice. The evidence for why “Fire Bomb” should have been a single is unquestionable.

 First and foremost, it’s the best song on the entire record.

Even Rihanna admitted it was one of her favorite songs from the album.

The lyrics read like poetry, telling the story of the demise of a relationship in a deeply intimate way. 

Not only is it gut-wrenchingly personal, but Ri’s haunting vocal delivery of this song is both stunning and heartbreaking at the same time.

Did we mention how much emotion you can hear in Rihanna’s voice? Like when she sings, “As we were burning, the world called the police.”

Oh, and it’s pretty clear that the “We Found Love”-singer could slay a live performance of this track. 

And, think about how a-m-a-z-i-n-g and epic the music video for this track could have been.

Anyone have an extra time machine I can use to take me back to 2009, so I can convince Rihanna to release this epic masterpiece as a single?

Miley mesmerizes with her covers of “Landslide” and “Hey Ya”

Miley Cyrus is currently jet-setting and gyrating around America for her well-received Bangerz Tour. The “Wrecking Ball”-singer’s antics on tour have been described as a live version of the 2013 film Spring Breakers. She gets on her knees for President Bill Clinton and twerks like there’s not tomorrow, all while perform live versions of her biggest hits.

But where Miley truly shines is during her stunning, stripped down renditions of Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.”

Shakira releases unforgettable stadium anthem “Empire”

Was “Can’t Remember To Forget You” merely a teaser for what’s to come from Shak’s upcoming self-titled album? By the sounds of new promotional single “Empire,” it sure does seem like it.

"Empire" find the Columbian goddess channeling her inner Tori Amos, filtered through the stadium sounds of Coldplay with vocals reminiscent of Celine Dion. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Take a listen to the new track below.

Shakira recently revealed the track list for her upcoming eighth studio album, which features tracks with Rihanna and Blake Shelton. The latter of which Shak described as a country-folk song. The announcement also confirms that the previously leaked track and future single “Dare (La La La)” has made the cut for the project.

Justin Bieber’s downward spiral lands him in jail

image

Fame is a nasty thing. It will lure you in, brainwash you, and consume you. It’s a tale that’s been told for decades now, and it’s latest victim is none-other-than Justin Bieber.

After multiple altercations with the law over the past few months, Justin’s decline seemed almost inevitable.

According to Miami police, the “Baby”-singer was arrested and charged with driving under the influence (of marijuana, alcohol, and prescription drugs), resisting arrest, drag racing, and driving with an expired license.

image

According to the report, Justin was extremely uncooperative with the police, asking “What the fuck did I do?”, along with appearing to be very intoxicated. Bieber, who was described as having a “stupor” look on his face, reeked of alcohol and had very visibly blood shot eyes.
