A Very, Mini Throwback Thursday :)
I know, I know! One throwback song is never enough! But I’m in the midst of some craziness at my apartment, and I’ve been working all day from a hotel… with two little boys… who think we’re on some kind of super-fun vacation (well, I did tell them that), which involves them turning the hotel closet into a ‘spaceship’ (their words, not mine). LOL, yeah. So… I’m exhausted! But I have been rocking out to last week’s Throwback Mariah Carey post, which led me to the other throwback Mariah post, which eventually led me to the amazingness that is Ghost Down DJ’s My Boo. You’re welcome. And just put this one on repeat until next Thursday… I know that’s what I’ll be doing, lol!

Directed by Floria Sigismondi
Last month rock legend David Bowie shocked the world with the release of a new single and the announcement of a forthcoming new album. Today he graces us with the music video for the second single from his album The Next Day, which is due to hit stores on March 12. The video for his new single The Stars (Are Coming Out) was directed by the amazing Floria Sigismondi (who is responsible for some of the most grotesquely beautiful and disturbingly pretty music videos of the past 15 years) and co-stars the flawless actress Tilda Swinton. The video is like a mini-movie and you can watch it in full above. More »
The 'Gerald Giovanni's Funk3d Edit' Remix features MOAR BRITNEY
So, first we got the music video for Britney Spears and will.i.am‘s new single Scream & Shout … then we got a music video for the remixed version of Scream & Shout that features Brit, will and a bunch of rappers … but today, my friends, we get THE absolute best Scream & Shout music video of all. Britney fansite Breathe Heavy pointed me in the direction of the just-released music video for Scream & Shout (Gerald Giovanni’s Funk3d Edit) video remix which features most (if not all) of Britney‘s scenes from the previous two official music videos … resulting in the best video of the bunch. The remixed version of S&S ain’t bad either (but is it better than the Pitbull remix we heard earlier this week?). Check out the embed above and fall in love. I think you, too, will agree that moar Britney means moar awesomeness. YOU’RE GONNA TURN THIS SHIT UP!
K-Dot And Drizzy Find Love And Trouble In 'Poetic Justice'
Finally! A little while back Kendrick Lamar released the controversial video to Backstreet Freestyle, and while I loved that video (and trying to make sense of some of the images with y’all), I’d really been obsessively waiting for the video to Poetic Justice since we heard the single a while back. And I was not disappointed. Although it would have been awesome to see a cameo from Janet Jackson (what with the sample on the track), I love, love, love that the video is set in LA on Crenshaw Boulevard, and partly inspired by one of the storylines in her 1993 movie Poetic Justice. Drake is up in the video… being Drake, lol. Peep the video for more! Do you love? I love. And you can check out the lyrics to Poetic Justice over at DirectLyrics.
'Is There A God? Is He Watching? Is She Watching?'
Usually when Miguel releases a music video, it means things are about to get pretty sexy. But the Grammy winning artist is switching gears a bit for his third single, Candle In The Sun. Maintaining his signature intensity and beautiful vocals, Miguel gets a little socio-political on this one. Apparently, he released a statement to HypeBeast about the song and visuals: “It’s so easy to ignore what’s right in front of us sometimes. I wanted to create a song and visual that addressed my everyday concerns of life as I know it in the world that we live in.” I’m of the opinion that Miguel (and his girlfriend) can do no wrong, and I love the lyrics to this song. Peep the video for more!
"I give you 'Downton Abbey' doing One Direction"
So … from time to time a parody/tribute/lip dub video comes along that truly stands out from the crowd and successfully grabs my attention so fully that I simply must share the goods with all y’all. Previously, we’ve seen lip dub videos of President Barack Obama performing various songs and those clips are pretty entertaining. Today, tho, I present to you a lip dub video of the cast of Downton Abbey performing the hit song That’s What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. Now, whether or not you like the song, I think you’ll find that you will love this video. It’s really impressive how well the lyrics have been strung together with footage from all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey … and if you listen, you’ll hear clever changes to the lyrics that make the video even more awesome. Watch the video above and love … I’ve already watched it 5 times … and I plan to watch it a few more times in the next hour or so.
Yesterday we got to hear in full Mariah Carey‘s new song Almost Home, the first single from the soundtrack of the new film Oz the Great and Powerful. Today we get to check out a short preview of the forthcoming music video. As you can see below, the music video will feature footage from the film (as music videos from film soundtracks tend to do) but will also feature footage of Mimi doing her thang. It’s a short clip so it’s worth a look, I check … check it out. More »

Click below to see the album art for Bitters and then get to downloadin’ so you can get to listenin’ so you can get to falling in love. More »
'You Remind Me Of My Beamer'
So, disclaimer, I’m a huge Frank Ocean fan who knows very little about Odd Future (AKA Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All). But I do know that many members of Odd Future have been pursuing solo projects (like Frank, Earl Sweatshirt, and Tyler, The Creator), and I’m tryna see if I can get down with the hype. Tyler, The Creator is working on a new album (Wolf) and he’s teamed up with Grammy-winner Frank Ocean on a track called Bimmer. We only have a snippet of the song/video, but it’s kinda cool… and then there’s the part where Frank starts doing his thing, so yeah! Me likey. As far as the lyrics go, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard an artist compare a chic to a car, but okay. Let’s see where this goes, lol.
