"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.
No TIDAL required
A few weeks ago, Rihanna released a stunning new single titled American Oxygen that was released first on Jay Z‘s new music streaming service TIDAL before it was made available for purchase elsewhere. Rihanna also released the music video for American Oxygen exclusively on TIDAL … until now. The video for Oxygen has finally been made available for viewing outside of TIDAL which is great news because, IMHO, the song is one of the best that Rihanna has released in her entire music career. American Oxygen follows the release of her previous single Bitch Better Have My Money and it couldn’t be more different. This stirring mid-temp ballad is not only beautiful to listen to it is also educational in lyrical content. Click the embed above to watch the video for American Oxygen and see what you non-TIDAL subscribers (meaning almost everyone on planet earth) have been missing.
Featuring Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups
Last month we learned the GREAT news that Garbage is, once again, releasing a new single in celebration of Record Store Day (which is this Saturday) and today we get to HEAR the song for the first time and SEE the music video for the track. Directed by longtime Garbage music video collaborator Sophie Muller, The Chemicals is the first of two new songs included on the 10″ vinyl single that will be released on RSD this weekend. The song features guest vocals by Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups but longtime Garbage fans will hear immediately that this is 100% a Garbage song. I am really looking forward to picking up this vinyl when it is released on Saturday. Please enjoy.
"Party til the break of dawn"
Last month, Snoop Dogg released the music video for his single Peaches N Cream, the first from his new Pharell-produced album Bush. Today we get to see the just-released music video for his second single So Many Pros. As you can see in the video embedded above, Snoop showcases the many sides of his personality in this new music video, with the emphasis on his flawless pimp game. The retro feel of the faux movie posters is a very nice touch. This second single is the epitome of that smooth ’70s sound, I can totally dig it. Check out the video for So Many Pros and let the Snoop wash all over you.
"Just shot one of my favorite dance scenes ever"
Our dear Britney Spears is hard at work on day 2 of her music video shoot for her upcoming new single Pretty Girls (which will feature Iggy Azalea on guest rap vocals). Today, Britney and a bunch of backup dancer spent some time a a car wash for the video shoot and as you can see in the photos below, she is rockin’ a different look today. Yesterday she was all weaved out with lots of big hair. Today, her extensions are out and her shorter, natural hair is permy and fun. Britney shared a photo on her official Facebook profile and other photos of Britney on the Pretty Girls set have popped up on Twitter. Behold. More »
Tiny is better than nothing at all ;)
Earlier today we saw a pair of behind the scenes photos shared by Britney Spears from the set of the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea, Pretty Girls. Right now we get our FIRST LISTEN of the song by way of a fan shot video from the music video set. Britney and Iggy are filming Pretty Girls right now here in LA and an industrious fan with a mobile phone managed to film a tiny portion of the shoot … which includes a tiny sample of the song. It’s not much to listen to, unfortch, but it’s better than nothing. Watch the clip above AND DON’T BLINK. Then, click below to see a photo shot by a fan of Britney and Iggy tooling around in their Jeep on the streets of LA today. More »
Are you ready for 'Pretty Girls'?!
Last month, our dear Britney Spears covered People magazine to reveal to the world that her new single will be out in May. Today, Britney shares a couple of behind the scenes photos from the set of the music video for her new single Pretty Girls. The first photo that Britney shared on her official Facebook profile is a group shot with her backup dancers in the studio. The second photo is of Brit all dolled up in a Jeep on the actual music video set. OMG. What are you waiting for, check out the photos below!! More »
It's the end of the world as we know it, apparently
Yesterday we got to see a teaser for Madonna‘s music video for her new single Ghosttown and just moments ago, the video made its world premiere online. The Ghosttown video made it’s “official” premiere on the new live-streaming app Meerkat before it was released in full on You Tube (you may recall that her last video, for Living For Love, made its premiere on the Snapchat app). As you can see above, Madonna, actor Terrence Howard and a small Asian boy are the only people left in a post-apocalyptic world where music, dance and love is all that survives. Oh and capes, there are still capes in this Ghosttown world and Madonna is still wearing them (despite her previous problems doing so). Check out the video for Ghosttown above and see what you think. Do you like?
'See You Again'
At the very end of the sequel film Furious 7, in theaters now, the song See You Again is featured as a video montage is shown in memory of the late Paul Walker. Today we get to see the just-released music video for the song which features most if not all of the montage scenes shown in the movie. See You Again, by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, is a nicely fitting song for the movie and coupled with the Fast and Furious footage of Paul Walker makes for an excellent memorial. If you cried in the movie theater when you watched the movie, you may want to grab a box of tissues before you watch this music video.
Full video out tomorrow
Last weekend, Madonna announced that she will be releasing the music video for her new single Ghosttown this week … today, we learn that the video will be out officially tomorrow. Maddy has released today a short teaser video to promote the release of the video tomorrow and as you can see above, the vid will be appropriately apocalyptic in theme. Check out the quick tease above as we await the full video’s release to come.
