"Head up, head up Keep holding, holding"
Chvrches released their debut album The Bones of What You Believe last year but it is proving to be the album that keeps on giving. The group has just released the official music video for Under The Tide, the latest single from their album, which you can watch in full above. This clip may remind some of you fans of ’90s alternative rock of Matthew Sweet‘s music video for Girlfriend which also incorporated anime scenes in his video … an effect that I greatly approve of. Honestly, my favorite Chvrches songs are the ones with Lauren on lead vocals but Under The Tide is a great song, now with a great video.
And it's really not all that good
For weeks now, One Direction has been teasing the release of their music video for their new single Steal My Girl and at long last … it has been released. Honestly, I’m not crazy about the song and I really don’t like the video. The best thing about this video is Danny DeVito being Danny DeVito. The worst thing about the video is, well, everything else. Have a look, see what you think.
#KnuckIfYouBuck is now 10 Years Old!!!
So, here’s what’s going on with me. My youngest son just turned, one and ever since he was about 3 months old, I’ve been talking to his Dad about this upcoming weekend. I’m going to let you all in on what my life has been like for the past 12 months: insane. Dark. Exhausting. Terrifying. All things I’ve been carefully concealing when I post these kinds of Instagram photos, LMAO. I’M TIRED! And I could tell when Josev arrived that I was going to have to do something I’ve never done before, and take a weekend off of motherhood. Yes, I’m done. For one weekend. And that weekend is this weekend, during which I’m going to be playing this video (and the dirty version with ya boy Lil’ Scrappy) all. Effing. Weekend. And drinking wine by the bottle. And TAKING LIKE 3 NAPS BACK TO BACK (then waking up to Knuck if You Buck) BECAUSE OMG my partna-in-babymaking is taking the kids away for the weekend! Nobody call meeee! And listen to Crime Mob (I love Crime Mob… and—fun fact—the only college dorm party I ever threw/the only party I’ve ever thrown in my life was called Knuck if You Buck—shouts-out to my roommate Ángela—because that is how much this song defined my college years. Sort of.)
Strut Your Stuff, Gwen
A few days ago the world was blessed with the first solo song from Gwen Stefani in 6 years and today we get to see the music video for that new song. Just a short time ago, Gwen dropped the music video for Baby Don’t Lie after she previewed the vid on The Voice last night. TRUTH BE TOLD, I’m not at all blown away by this video. It’s colorful, yes, but it’s not really all that interesting. Without the green screen, there’s not much to this video. But, that being said, I really love Baby Don’t Lie the more I hear it and now that Gwen is releasing music videos and is teasing OTHER NEW SONGS, I can’t help but be super excited for what’s to come from Ms. Stefani. What do you think of this music video for Baby Don’t Lie? Do you love it … or nah?
Last week we got to see the lyric video for Fergie Ferg‘s new single LA LOVE (La La) and today we learn that Fergie and her crew filmed the official music video for the song over the weekend. Fergie was spotted in a tricked out party bus on the streets of LA for the music video shoot. As you can see in these photos, the look of the video appears to be garishly tacky … which is perfect for a Fergie video. I can’t wait to see the final product.
Announces the video for 'Baby Don't Lie' is out TOMORROW
Gwen Stefani is super serious about her return to the music biz because not only did she officially release her new single Baby Don’t Lie today but she also released a snippet of another new song titled Spark The Fire, which you can listen to above. Gwen previewed the song on the radio earlier this morning and as you can hear, it’s a damn fine song (OMG OMG she’s back again). Just moments ago on her official Twitter profile, Gwen announced that the completed music video for Baby Don’t Lie will be released tomorrow!
My video for #BabyDontLie premieres tomorrow on @Vevo! Tune in to #TheVoice tonight for a sneak peek & join my Twitter Q&A at 10pm EST!
OMG, so much new Gwen stuff right now! I was hoping she might release another single this year … at this rate, she may release her entire new album by Thanksgiving :D
"If you really need me ..."
It’s been a few weeks since Ariana Grande released her collab with The Weeknd, Love Me Harder, so it’s about time we get the now-standard lyric video accompaniment. While we wait for the official music video to hit the Internets, let’s bide our time with this just-released lyric video. Do you know all the words yet?
"We ain't doin' no type of stressin'"
The don Fat Joe has released the music video for his new single Stressin’ and as you can hear and see above, the song and video feature the luminous Diva Latina Jennifer Lopez. Joe and J. Lo have collaborated before, to much success, so I’m not at all surprised that the duo have teamed up again for a new track. There’s a deffo early ’00s vibe to the video and I have to say, Fat Joe looks amazing! This is a fun song and a fun video. What do you think?
Late last month, Fergie Ferg officially released the audio of her comeback single LA Love (La La) and, in the process, asked fans to submit photos of themselves making the LA sign with their fingers. She also asked for fans to submit photos they have taken of or with Fergie over the years. Those photos have been complied into a fun lyric video for LA Love (La La) which you can check out above. I am still really loving this new song so I’m happy to share this new video with all y’all. If you happened to submit a photo for possible inclusion, watch the video above carefully to see if you made the cut.
'Criminal', 'Hot Knife' and more!
Hooray for sweet coincidences! A couple of weeks ago I’d asked PITNBr Iris to help me with a Fiona Apple Throwback Thursday, right after we heard that new track from her. Last week I couldn’t get to publishing it, and I was kicking myself, but this week we have some more Fiona news, as her track Criminal got some love on American Horror Story last night. Click inside for just a few incredible songs from Fiona!
