First Look: One Direction Releases A Music Video For ‘You & I’

Power Ballad
You, I & 1D

Last month the members of One Direction shared a group selfie to prove to the world that they are NOT breaking up. Today, the further solidify their assertion that they are staying together as a musical unit with the much-anticipated release of the music video for their song You & I. 1D has been teasing this video for a few weeks now and finally, it’s out. The song is a slower ballad — which is only OK, IMHO — but the video is pretty neat. Have a look, have a listen, rejoice in the fact that 1D are still together and still going strong.

A Hype Williams Film
Explicit Version

Earlier this month we got our first listen of Future‘s new single I Won, which features Kanye West on guest vocals and today we get to check out the just-released music video for the track. I Won is the first single from Future‘s new album Honest, which hits stores on Tuesday. As you can hear, the song features a lot of explicit lyrics so be careful were you watch/listen. Oh and I’m almost 100% sure that that is NOT Kanye‘s babymama in the clip. Enjoy.

#ThrowbackThursday: Here Are The 20 Best Animated Music Videos From ‘Jem And The Holograms’

The Best of Jem AND The Misfits

For Throwback Thursday today I was inspired by the recent talk about that live-action Jem and the Holograms movie that is being produced. Because I’m so worried that the movie will fail to live up to the expectations of fans who have LOVED the original animated series for almost 30 years, I was inspired to go back and remember what made Jem and the Holograms so great in the first place. MTV ruled the world back in the 1980′s and Jem and the Holograms wisely capitalized on that fact. In each episode, there would be 3 music videos from the animated bands Jem and the Holograms and their rivals The Misfits. I have compiled a list of the 20 BEST animated music videos from the cartoon Jem and the Holograms. 10 of the videos are by Jem and the Holograms and 10 of the videos are by The Misfits. As you can see below, the Jem songs are all about positivity, love and hope. The Misfits songs are about greed, personal gain and selfishness (which CLEARLY means their songs are better). I’ve added a bonus 21 music video at the end of the list that features both Jem and the Holograms AND The Misfits singing the same song. I hope you will enjoy this trip down memory lane. Jem and the Holograms remains one of my all-time favorite cartoons. I think the music videos below will show you exactly why I love the show so much :D Please, let me know in the comments below which music video/song is your fave.

Sky Ferreira Denies That Her Music Video For ‘I Blame Myself’ Is Racist

"when I look at this video I don't see race as a issue."
"You think you know me so well"

Sky Ferreira has released a music video for her new single I Blame Myself and has been forced to respond to critics that the video is racist. The music video is embedded above but it won’t work until tomorrow morning, you can watch the video in full HERE to see and judge for yourselves. Because Sky features Black back-up dancers, she is being accused by some people of using her Black dancers as “props”. Other people have a problem with a White woman setting her music video in the city of Compton. In response to this criticism, Sky posted a lengthy message to fans on her official Facebook page, which you can read in full below. More »

First Listen: Lana Del Rey Releases Her New Single ‘West Coast’

"Down on the West Coast, they got a sayin' ..."
"... If you're not drinkin', you're not playin'"

Last week Lana Del Rey announced the title of her new single, West Coast, and revealed that the song would debut in full today. Over the weekend, tho, LDR previewed the song during a concert performance in Las Vegas and then performed the track in full at Coachella. Today, tho, the song has been officially unleashed upon the world. Click the video embed above to hear West Coast, the first single from Lana‘s upcoming new album Ultraviolence. The song has a bit of a different vibe for a LDR song. If this first single is any indication, it would appear that Lana‘s sound has evolved a bit … which is very nice. Have a listen, see what you think. A new era of Lana Del Rey music is now upon us.

Watch: Katy Perry Releases A Lyric Video For ‘Birthday’

"We're living the life / We're doing it right"
'Birthday' Lurve

Katy Perry is ready to unleash her next single upon the world but before she drops the official music video for her song Birthday, she is letting us have it with the just-released lyric video for the track. As you can see in the video embedded above, this lyric video is a confectionary fan’s DREAM. Food porn has never looked so delicious. The song, eh, it’s only OK (it’s definitely no Dark Horse, that’s for sure) but this super fun lyric video does make the track more palatable. Ugh. Now I want a piece of cake. Thanks a lot, Katy.

Watch: Kylie Minogue Releases A Lyric Video For Her New Single ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’

Go, Girl
The Second Single

Kylie Minogue has announced that the second single from her new album Kiss Me Once will be her song I Was Gonna Cancel, which was written by the amazing Pharrell. Personally, I am hoping that her song Les Sex will be released as a single but, for now, we get I Was Gonna Cancel. I like the song but I can’t say that I love it. The lyrics are odd for a single, I think. When I heard it on the album, I figured it would just be an album track but clearly, Kylie loves it enough to release it as an actual single. Click the video above to check out the lyric video for I Was Gonna Cancel. What say you, Kylie fans? Is this a single you can get behind?
