Back to the '90s
Over the weekend, we got to see the cover art for Mariah Carey‘s new single Infinity, the only new song included on her upcoming greatest hits album #1 to Infinity. At the stroke of midnight last night, Mimi released Infinity for download on iTunes and made the song available for listening online with the release of the lyric video embedded above. As you can see and hear, this song appears to be TOTALLY about her soon-to-be ex-husband Nick Cannon … and how he lost the greatest thing he ever had when he messed up his marriage with Mariah. The song is really, really good. It has a distinctly ’90s sound to it, which is where Mariah Carey is strongest. This song has a very good shot at becoming Mimi‘s next #1 song. Have a listen, see what you think.

"Turn the lights down low / And kiss me in the dark"
After we got a tiny taste of the song back in March, Hilary Duff released the full audio for her infectious new single Sparks earlier this month. Today we get to see the just-released lyric video for Sparks and altho it’s not a particularly impressive lyric vid, I am so crazy about the song that I am happy to feature it again. Sparks has been one of my fave new songs since it was released a few weeks ago and it fits in nicely in my running playlist. I’m hoping that the music video for Sparks will be a bit more exciting than this lyric vid but even if not, I’ll still be desperately in lurve with the song nonetheless.
The first single from 'Bush'
Last month we learned that Snoop Dogg is coming at us with a new album, executive produced by Pharrell, titled Bush with a first single titled Peaches N Cream. Today we get to hear Peaches N Cream in full with the release of the lyric video embedded above. As you can hear, Peaches is an ode the ladies with a thicker posterior and it features guest vocals by Charlie Wilson. The song deffo has a Pharrell flavor to it so, yeah, it’s pretty smooth. Do you like?
Remember the new Rihanna song that we heard a couple of days ago, titled Towards The Sun from the upcoming Dreamworks animated film Home? Well, it turns out that fellow pop star Jennifer Lopez also has a song on the Home motion picture soundtrack. J. Lo‘s song is titled Feel The Light and you can hear it in full in the lyric video embedded above. The song is pretty good and, as you can hear, J. Lo sings the Hell out of it. With new music by Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez on the soundtrack, it sounds like Home might turn out to be a pretty decent movie. Does this movie look like something you’d like to see? As for this J. Lo song, do you like?

"This is my heartbeat song and I'm gonna play it"
A few days ago, Kelly Clarkson employed the aid of her baby daughter River Rose to help her tease the release of her new single Heartbeat Song. Today, Kelly has FINALLY unleashed the song upon the world for our listening pleasure … and quite unsurprisingly, the song is a smash pop hit. Kelly has an uncanny ability to write catchy, upbeat songs that you want to bop along to — not just dance, but bop bop bop. Kelly Clarkson is back! Thank the gods! Have a listen, have a little bop and enjoy.

"You're a copycat, get back / I'm always on your mind"
Last August, lyrics from an alleged Madonna diss track titled Two Steps Behind Me about Lady Gaga were released online. Because no audio ever surfaced to corroborate the authenticity of the lyrics, the story kinda went nowhere … until yesterday. In the wake of an initial 13 leaked demo songs from the recording sessions for Madonna‘s as-yet unreleased album Rebel Heart and after another 17 unfinished demo songs were subsequently leaked, 3 more demo songs leaked yesterday … including the so-called Lady Gaga diss track Two Steps Behind Me. It turns out that the lyrics that were released in August were 100% correct (“You’re a copycat, Where is my royalty? You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look“). In response to the demo leak, Lady Gaga posted a nasty message on her official Instagram profile seemingly directed at Madonna even as Madonna and her manager Guy Oseary tried to convince us that the diss track isn’t directed at Gaga (yeah right). The leaking of Madonna‘s demos continues to get messier … and we are still more than 2 months away from the release of Madonna‘s album. OY!
