Yesterday we got to hear the sick Dave Audé remix of Demi Lovato‘s new smash summer single Cool For The Summer, which will be featured on a remix EP out on August 7. Today we get to see the just-released music video for Cool For The Summer and, people, it’s so great. Demi rounded up some girlfriends, went for a drive around LA on a night completely without traffic and sings the only song that I am obsessed with right now. Check out the video above and see how much fun it can be to spend the summer with Ms. Demi Lovato :)
The Song of Summer '15 is ready to party
Altho I had pinned my hopes on another song becoming the unofficial song of summer 2015, I have to admit that Demi Lovato‘s luscious pop track Cool For The Summer has quickly become the only pop song that I am in lust with this summer. Ever since I first heard the track a few weeks ago, it has been on constant replay on my computer … on my phone … in my car. Demi has a great track record of releasing really fun pop songs (her single Give Your Heart a Break is fave in my ever-growing running playlist) but she’s really hit it out of the park with Cool For The Summer. Today we get to check out a high energy, dancey remix of Cool For The Summer by Dave Audé — which you can hear in full above — which is featured on the forthcoming Cool For The Summer Remix EP due out on August 7. This is a remix of the song that you are likely to hear bangin’ in the club when you hit the dancefloor this summer. Additionally, Demi will be releasing the music video for Cool For The Summer this week, which you can preview below. More »
"Y'all should know me well enough"
The very inventive folks at New York magazine have done it again with the latest installment of their Vulture Remix series of videos. They came up with the inspired idea to mash-up footage of Miss Piggy from The Muppets with audio from Rihanna‘s song Bitch Better Have My Money. The result? Perfection. Check out the video above and try and convince me that Miss Piggy does NOT sing this song better than Rihanna does … because you can’t, because she does. Enjoy.
"I know I need to feel released"
A few days ago we learned the really great news that Chvrches have set September 20 as the release date for their sophomore album, titled Every Open Eye. Today we get to hear the first single from the new album in full. Chvrches have released a lyric video for the new single, Leave A Trace, which you can watch above. The song, I’m happy to hear, is very much in vein with the sound that Chvrches have become famous for. I absolutely LOVE the sweet, poppy, electronic music that the Scottish group crafts so expertly. If Leave A Trace is a sign of what we can expect when Every Open Eye is released, then we are in for a treat. Have a listen, see what you think. It’s a really great song, yeah?

THIS NEW MUSIC VIDEO IS ALL THAT MATTERS
It’s been a while since we talked about Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and I’m here to report that he is still EVERYTHING. I just watched his Sexy Motha video for maybe the third time (maybe the fifth), and I don’t understand how this is the first time something like this has happened. We did have Stacy’s Mom back in the day, but this is very different. The moms in this incredible music video, made in collaboration with The Gregory Brothers, don’t look like Stacy’s mom or Stiffler’s mom—they look like your Mom. And my Mom… and me. LMAO.

Sexy video, Not-so-great song
It’s hard/impossible to think of a Ciara video that wasn’t sexually charged and designed to make you want to go to the gym, and/or take all of the dance classes. Dance Like We’re Making Love is really no different in terms of being incredibly hawt and a great showcase for Ciara‘s whole… situation. Unfortunately, I just don’t think the song is that great, and the video doesn’t quite do enough to rectify that. My suggestion? Watch this… then go watch Ride, which is what I’m about to do. Peep the video for more!
Madonna released the music video for her new single Bitch I’m Madonna last month. This month, she unleashes a new music video for a remix version of the song. Bitch has been remixed by Sander Kleinenberg, giving the song an entirely new feel … and the video remix has a new feel, as well. This remix of the song is very clubby, which I’m sure some people will enjoy. The video, IMHO, is much improved. It looks like a music video and it handles the quick celebrity cameo appearances much better. Have a look above, see what you think. I’m not sure if this remixed version of Bitch I’m Madonna will make waves on the music charts but I think it’s a damn fun upgrade to a just OK song.
THIS VIDEO IS SO WEIRD I THINK I LOVE IT?
The other day I finally watched Kendrick Lamar‘s video for Alright and I was just so thrilled that we were given this interesting video with something actually going on in it. It was artistic, bold, violent and beautiful. Drake is stepping up and making a similarly artistic attempt with his new video for Energy, although the concept is completely different from Kendrick‘s. Drake channels a whole host of famous faces with these incredibly bizarre visuals, and I think I love it. Drake as Bieber, Drake as Miley, Drake as a Ken Doll? Here for it. Peep the video for more!
Rihanna‘s Bitch Better Have My Money video received an incredible amount of attention when it was released last week—and much of it was negative. Critiques of the video addressed the issue of violence against women and many people (myself included) have offered counter-critiques, defending the video. Others are arguing that the feminist perspective is specifically that of white feminists, which limits the perspective. And now we have this—an odd cartoon parody from PopToonsTv and Chibi Toons wherein Rihanna actually kidnaps and tortures Taylor Swift (who she might have had some beef with in the past).

"Yall gotta have a chill button"
I’m not ashamed to admit that last night at a cookout, the subject of Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill came up, and stayed up fro about 15-22 minutes. The general consensus among a group of experts in attendance (myself included, obviously) was that it is incredibly difficult to take this relationship seriously, after watching Nicki have one of the most private long term relationships in the history of celebrity. Safaree, we believe you’ve been done dirty, and we support you. At the same time, I want to be optimistic and say that Nicki and Meek are a real-life couple and therefore deserve to be happy in peace. However, I’m not the only with opinions about this couple, and rapper Joe Budden (who’s always down for a good Twitter debate) took to his podcast to let the world know why he isn’t feelin’ them.
