I think I’m really doing to be a fan of this Bonnie McKee chick! First she released the ridiculous infectious pop single “American Girl” and now she’s releasing what she calls an “InBetwingle” (song between singles) called “Sleepwalker” which is a dance offering produced by Boys Noize & Oliver! Check out the movie-like trailer she’s just unveiled to preview the music video… Looks like this zombie clip will be dropping just in time for Halloween and The Walking Dead television series premeire!
Icona Pop’s latest single “All Night” has just been given a music video treatment! Surprisingly, the visual for the electro-pop ditty serves as a mini documentary on the New York dancehall scene! Wasn’t expecting that concept for the song what-so-ever! Kinda love it… What do you guys think?!
And I’m back to Celine Dion not registering on my radar once again after hearing the Sia demo version of her new single “Loved Me Back To Life” which is far more superior than Celine’s (good but not quite as epic as Sia’s) version. The problem is while Celine definitely has the chops to deliver, the song was obviously crafted for Sia’s personal sound. (You know, since she wrote the track and all…) I’m just hoping the Sia has saved some of these pop gems that she’s hanging out to other artists for her own album!
Sia – Loved Me Back To Life:
Toni Braxton has gone back to her roots and joined forces with her original producer/mentor Babyface for her new ballad and lead single “Hurt You“! So glad Toni has come out of her short-lived retirement from the music industry to give us more of that sultry voice! I can’t see this being a huge commercial hit, but I’m enjoying it and am happy to have my Toni B back.
Katy Perry’s new single “Roar” has found it’s way online ahead of it’s release date! So far reviews I’ve read have been luke-warm but I personally love it! Ia actually take back my Fun comparison… It sounds more like OneRepublic/Ryan Tedder. Which means I instalove!
If you haven’t already… You MUST check out the newly released music video from the New York based indie artist, KOORTWAH. This incredibly talented electronic-rocker has just released the title track from his latest E.P. “The Wilderness” and along with it’s highly captivating visual! I highly recommend you give KOORTWAH’s latest video a play and if you like what you hear/see, feel free to stalk him on his official website and Soundcloud pages for some more of his sexy music!
R&B girl-group Stooshe have just released a fun little remake of TLC’s 90′s hit “Waterfalls“! The update stays pretty true to the original, with even some of the signature shoulder-bouncin’ choreography from the original video in tact but is fresh enough to introduce the song to a younger generation! And if you’re wondering what the two surviving members of TLC, T-Boz & Chilli, think about this new rendition of their song… I think it’s pretty safe to say that they have given Stooshe their stamp of approval of the remake by making a small cameo in clip! Check it out…
Rihanna’s new single “Diamonds” is finally here and despite the tacky, drug centric artwork – the song itself is actually a beautiful and pretty mature record for Rihanna… Probably because Sia had a hand in writting this ‘gem’. I think the dance diva actually has a chance to break the 4-on-the-floor mold and score a huge hit with this mid-tempo ballad! Check it out and tell me if you’re feeling the ‘all grown up’ Rihanna…
Rita Ora is on fire with her current summer party anthem “How We Do” her in the US, but the budding pop star is ready to show you a different side to her with her euphoric new Sia penned album track titled “Radioactive“! Ora really has an epic club hit on her hands if she decides to release this gem as a single with a set of hot remixes! Take a listen…
One of my favorite new alternative rock artists Alex Clare has been given the remix treatment by Jason Nevins! His current single “Too Close” has been in heavy rotation in my iPod for months now and I have been desperately searching for a dance version of the highly addictive song with no luck! Today the remix Gods have smiled upon me and have sent me this Jason Nevins mix!! I will definitely be debuting this in my set tonight!
On a side I note, I know an amazing Cazzette remix of this song also exists but has yet to be released/leak. Can’t wait to get my hands on that one as well!

And here it is ladies and gentleman… The highly anticipated new single from Mariah Carey titled “Triumphant“. Hmmm… To be honest, this single comes off more of a Rick Ross & Meek Mill single featuring a cameo from Mariah on the hook more so than it does a comeback single from Mimi. I’m highly disappointed in Mariah’s not-so-triumphant new single that relies more heavily on the rap cameo’s to carry the song over her own talent. Alright lambs, sound off on the new Mariah…
Winner of the first season of US X Factor, Melanie Amaro, has FINALLY released her official first single this week titled “Don’t Fail Me Now“. The Darkchild produced debut single fits right into the dance-pop heavy climate of pop radio right now and really showcases Melanie’s powerhouse vocals! Hopefully the label didn’t wait too long to release this and people will still be interested since Melanie won the X Factor title way back in December! Take a listen and sound off about Melanie Amaro’s debut…
The very talented Riley York who created the amazing montage music video for Madonna’s “Gang Bang” is back with a new video from M’sMDNA era! This time, Riley has taken on the Benny Benassi produced “I’m Addicted” and has constructed an impressive and very creative visual to accompany the album track. I’m predicting this song will never be released as a single so this may be the closest thing we get to an official music video for the song… Enjoy!
Many of you may know Laurieann Gibson as a choreographer and creative director for the likes of Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj, but now she’s stepping out of the shadows of the superstars that she molds to attempt to shine as star herself. That’s right, Laurieann is trying her hand at pulling a Paula Abdul by transforming herself from a choreographer into a pop-star… Unfortunately for Laurieann, after listening to her just released debut single “Last Chance” I’m afraid that she has missed the mark in a major way! I mean it’s BAAAAADDDDD!!! I mean, I’d rather listen to that hideous Jeffree Star single than this hot mess! Don’t believe me? Just take a listen for yousrelf… If you dare….
Laurieann Gibson – Last Chance:
SHE’S BAAAACK!! Everyone’s favorite “sporty” Spice Girl turned dance diva, Mel C, is back with a brand new dance EP titled The Night! The new 3 track project is actually a collaboration between Mel and producer Jodie Harsh and is probably the best electronic effort I’ve heard from Sporty Spice single the Hex Hector remix of “I Turn To You“! Take a listen to the first cut off of the EP titled “Set You Free” and make sure you buy the mini-album from iTunes!
