For the Clown fans
Just a few weeks ago, I listened to The Offspring‘s 1994 album Smash and I was reminded how really excellent that whole album still is. Today, I am happy to pass along the news that the group is back with a new album and a new single for a new generation of fans. The embed above features the music video for The Offspring‘s new single Coming For You. As you can hear, the song is much poppier which is a bit of a departure from the rockier music that the band put out in the ’90s but it’s great to have new music from the Offspring guys. Check out the video above, see what you think. Oh and fair warning, if you don’t like clowns … this might not be the video for you.
Ugh. So remember how we learned earlier this month that members of Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s family are filming a reality TV show to capitalize/exploit her failing health while she remains in a medically-induced coma? Well, it turns out that her first cousin Jerod Brown has come up with another way to cash in on BK‘s condition. Brown, who raps under the name YF Kennedy, just released a single titled Pray4BK … which you can hear above. Sadly, it would appear that Bobbi‘s coma is proving to be a boon for her family so I’m sure they really are praying her for her hang on for as long as possible … so they can give interviews, film TV shows and release songs. The longer she remains comatized, the more opportunity they have to cash in. UGH.
Doin' Depeche Mode Proud
Last week we got our first listen of Johnny Marr‘s new single I Feel You, a cover of the 1993 Depeche Mode song that will be released as a 7″ single on Record Store Day next month. Today we get our first look at the music video for Johnny‘s cover of I Feel You. Johnny Marr, as you should know, is a founding member of The Smiths so pretty much everything that he does musically is amazing. I love Johnny‘s cover of I Feel You, I dig this video for the track and I am really looking forward to picking up this vinyl single when it is released on RSD on April 18. Woot!
This is where broken hearts go
Björk just released a music video of sorts for her new song Family that brings to life the imagery that is featured on the cover artwork for her new album Vulnicura. As you may know, Vulnicura was released digitally back in January due to an early leak of the album but it will be released in physical form this month with the artwork featured in this video. Vulnicura means “Cure for Wounds” and clearly, Björk is looking for a place to keep her broken heart in this video. Sigh. Her art is just so beautiful. Love her so much.
PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum... I have mine ready...
Earlier this week I stumbled upon a new photo of Michael B. Jordan on Instagram, and proceeded to tag all of my friends—beginning with PITNBr Devonte Antonio—in the picture. Jesus. Take. TheWheel. Later in the week I was catching up on the new Bravo series Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce (created by the amazing Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Marti Noxon), and one episode featured a “hall pass” scenario between one of the couples on the show. I couldn’t help but wonder about who I’d request a “hall pass” situation for, and well, that line of thought sent me right back to Michael B. Jordan‘s Instagram page.
Word is, it's about her ex-fiancé, Future
Not every artist can get me excited about a new video, but Ciara is definitely one of them. I practically fell over myself getting to the computer to watch I Bet. Because, CIARA. And her videos always make me strongly consider getting up and working out. Like, strongly consider it. Her latest visuals are as stunning as many of her older ones (though I have to admit, Ride is still my favorite). But even with Ballerina Ciara twirling around, everyone’s talking about the lyrics… and how much they sound like direct references to her ex-fiancé/IDIOT. Sorry, I know I don’t know them personally, but YOU DO NOT HURT THE CIARA! Anyway, check out the breakup anthem and tell me what you think! Me likey!

Sure, why not?
Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has signed on to star in the upcoming second season of Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD, is a featured star in a fun new viral video making the rounds today. SMG stars alongside Whitney Avalon in a Princess Rap Battle video — which is as awesome as it sounds. Sarah is Cinderella and Whitney is Belle and the ladies go head to head trading barbs … while rapping. As you may recall, SMG broke all of our hearts last week when she killed all chances of ever reprising her role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer but obvs, she’s got time to do Princess Rap Battles. LOL. I guess we take what we get. This Princess Rap Battle is the fourth of a series of videos. You can click HERE to watch Snow White vs. Elsa (who is a queen not a princess, btw), HERE to watch Galadriel vs. Princess Leia and HERE to watch Mrs. Claus vs. Mary Poppins (neither of which are princesses).
The first video from her new album 'Vulnicura'
Back in January, Björk decided to release her new album Vulnicura early due to the album leaking online … but she is moving forward at her own pace in terms of single and music video releases. Today we get to see the music video for her song Lionsong, the first to be released from her new album. This is how the video’s directors Inez & Vinoodh describe the music video:
“Björk’s character for ‘Lionsong’ had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze. She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound”.
We did get to see a video for Black Lake last month but that was less a music video and more a trailer for the Björk exhibit currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. As you can see above, this video for Lionsong carries on the vagina theme that Björk appears to be embracing with this new album. The song is hauntingly beautiful and the video is brilliantly Björk, so please enjoy.
In Da Club
Zedd and Selena Gomez released their new single I Want You To Know a couple of weeks ago … and today, we get to see the official music video for the track. Previously, we saw behind the scenes photos that were shared by Zedlena on social media during filming of the video and now we get to see the fruit of their labor. I love the song. It’s a great addition to my running playlist. The video is just OK, tho. It’s pretty much all Selena. Selena walking through a club. Selena changing her clothes. Selena making out with a mirror. Have a look, see what you think.
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?
