Because it's Global James Bond Day...
Following last week’s teaser, Sam Smith has released the video in full for his James Bond theme song, “Writing’s On The Wall,” and boy, does it have us pumped for the new film. The singer himself gets a taste of the Bond life in the video for his Spectre theme song and even contains some sexy footage from the movie, including a love scene between James Bond (Daniel Craig) and his new love interest Lucia (Monica Bellucci). Watch above!
Last week we got to hear the new Disclosure song Magnets, which features vocals by Lorde, taken from their new album Caracal (which was released last Friday). Today we get to see the just-released official music video for Magnets which, as you can see above, features some very shady biz. The video is beautifully shot in what looks to be a fabulous home in the Hollywood Hills and it appears to follow the lyrics of the song pretty closely. The more I hear this song, the more I love it. Check out the video and love the song along with me. Enjoy.

'Hurts', so good
Last month — AT LONG LAST — singer JoJo released new music for the first time in EONS when she dropped her new tringle which features 3 new songs. Today we get to check out the official music video for one of those songs, When Love Hurts. As you can see above, JoJo is serving some SERIOUS body … along with some fun armeography. I love this song and the video is fun so I hope you will enjoy. It’s really amazing to have JoJo back among us. I’m looking forward to hearing what’s next from her. Her 3 new songs are good enough to tide us over for a while but … Imma need an album pretty soon.

"I'm running still, I'm running still"
Earlier this week we we learned that a new song from Beyoncé would be coming out today and today — the song is here. Beyoncé‘s collaboration with Naughty Boy, Runnin’ (Lose It All), has been released and by clicking above you can hear the song in full by way of the track’s official music video. Runnin’ is featured on Naughty Boy‘s new album and as you can hear, Bey slays with her stunning vocals. The video, too, is pretty damn good so … yeah, check it out and savor this new music from Beyoncé. Until she releases new music of her own, this may be the only thing we get from her for a while so, enjoy.
It's out in full tomorrow
Yesterday we learned that Naughty Boy is releasing a new song tomorrow titled Runnin’ (Lose It All) which features Beyoncé on guest vocals and today we get our first taste of the song. The embed above features a short clip of the music video for Runnin’ and as you can hear, Bey is sanging her heart out on the track. The full song will be released tomorrow, which means it should be available for download at the stroke of midnight tonight. Have a listen above and see if this new song sounds enticing enough to buy when it is officially released tomorrow.
Dream within a Dream
A week ago, Taylor Swift announced that she would be releasing the music video for her new single Wildest Dreams on MTV VMAs night and today we get to see the video in full. As you can see in the embed above, actor Scott Eastwood co-stars with Taylor in this video as her co-star in a fictional movie that the couple are making together. Set in a lush exotic environment, the characters in this video appear to be making an epic film while falling in and out of love with one another. At the film’s movie premiere, the now-estranged lovers share glances with one another while realizing that they still have feelings for each other. The video is basically as simple as that. What it lacks in story, it more than makes up for in beautiful imagery (and, apparently, a nice donation to the African Parks Foundation of America). It is very much a Taylor Swift music video. Have a look above and see what you think. Wildest Dreams is one of the prettiest songs on the 1989 album so I like that the video is breathtaking. I guess I just wish such a lush video offered more substance to match all that style.
"Say you'll see me again even if it's just in your wildest dreams"
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards are going to be a big night for Taylor Swift who is not only nominated for some of the biggest awards of the night but also because that is the night that she will world premiere the music video for her the next single from her album 1989. The music video for Wildest Dreams will be released in full during the pre-show on VMAs night but, in order to tide us over until then, Taylor has released a very short snippet of the music video on her official Instagram profile. As you can see below, this video preview features short flashes of scenes from the video … which appropriately teases what’s to come. Have a look below and get your first tiny taste of Taylor Swift‘s Wildest Dreams. More »
The post-Zayn era is officially here
It has been a few months now since Zayn Malik left the pop group One Direction and while he is busy figuring out what his post-1D life will be about, his former groupmates are moving forward — full steam ahead — with their pop music dominance. One Direction has released the music video for their new single Drag Me Down (their first song released without Zayn Malik as a member of the group) and as you can see above, the British boys play US astronauts in the video. Casual attention to the song’s lyrics show that they bare no association whatsoever to the storyline of the music video, which doesn’t really matter to be honest. Click the embed above to get your first look at the new Zaynless incarnation of One Direction as they blast forward into space (and elsewhere) as a newly configured pop music foursome.
The glorious return of Chvrches
Last month we learned officially that the electronic/synth band Chvrches is releasing their sophomore album Every Open Eye in September and we’ve, thus far, gotten to hear two songs from the album — Leave A Trace and Never Ending Circles (both EXCELLENT songs, I have to say). Today we get to see the just-released, official music video for the first single from the new album and as you can see in the embed above, Chvrches have revealed a beautifully simple visual representation for Leave A Trace. I’m a big fan of the Chvrches visual aesthetic which compliments their music very well. Their new album Every Open Eye will be released on September 25 and I’ll just be watching and listening to Leave A Trace non-stop on repeat until that glorious day.

Last weekend, we got to hear Lana Del Rey‘s new song High By The Beach, the second from her upcoming new album Honeymoon, which leaked online a couple of days before it was officially released. Today we get to see LDR‘s official music video for the song which has just been unleashed upon the world. As you can see in the embed above, Lana is being harangued by an ambitious paparazzi photographer who won’t go away until Lana makes him go away. The video is pretty straightforward but it but be watched from beginning to end in full. I love this song, I dig the video and I want to hear the rest of LDR‘s Honeymoon immediately. Please enjoy.
