New Music: Jennifer Lopez Ft. Iggy Azalea – Booty

by: Taj | August 26th, 2014

Jennifer Lopez is determined to nab herself a hit off of her new album which has received a luke-warm response since it was released, so the Latina diva has enlisted pop’s current “it-girl” Iggy Azalea to lend her a helping hand on her new single “Booty“. This was definitely one of the only standout tracks on her album so if she has any chance at scoring a hit, the combo of releasing this song with Iggy’s special guest feature might just do the trick!

Video Premiere: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang

by: Taj | August 26th, 2014

Jessie J’s channels her inner Christina Aguilera for the “Bang Bang” music video (A.K.A. “Lady Marmalade 2.0“) as she struts her stuff in the streets accompanied by a gaggle of female dancers a-la Christina’sCan’t Hold Us Down“. Usually I would be bothered by such blatant swag jagging but I actually love this song and the video doesn’t bother me. Why wouldn’t these hot new pop vixens try to replicate the flawless formula of “Lady Marmalade“?! Gotta hand it to them, they did a pretty amazing job! Check it out…

New Music: Cobra Starship Ft. Icona Pop – Never Been In Love

by: Taj | August 26th, 2014

Cobra Starship is back from taking a small hiatus and has just dropped a new Icona Pop assisted single titled “Never Been In Love“. The upbeat pop-rock anthem is just catchy enough to peak my interest in the groups return and of course enlisting the help of the girls of Icona Pop doesn’t hurt either! Check it out…

Video Premiere: Taylor Swift – Shake It Off

by: Taj | August 18th, 2014

Taylor Swift has finally completely ditched the country girl-next-door bit and has just released a straight forward pop record titled “Shake It Off” where she doesn’t even try to pull off a down-home twang. While the video is very tongue-in-cheek and portrays Taylor posing in different dance themed scenes in a poking fun type of way, the song itself seems like a serious attempt to go even more mainstream with her sound than any of her previous efforts. Yes, both “Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” were both pretty solid pop records as well but I feel like she tried to retain some of her country appeal vocally in those two previous hits where as in this song you may have never known it was Taylor Swift had you not been told before hand. I will say that though I’m not really a fan of Mrs. Swift, this song is a lot more likable for me right off that bat than the songs I already mentioned above. Take a listen to “Shake It Off” and let me know if you are feeling it…

Video Premiere: Michael Jackson – A Place With No Name

by: Taj | August 14th, 2014

Michael Jackson (or the Michael Jackson Estate I should say) has just dropped a new music video for the latest single, “A Place With No Name“, lifted off of his post-mortem album! Using iconic dance footage (as well as some never before seen behind the scenes clips) from the visual for his 1991 hit “In The Closet” along side new footage shot with a dancing duo, I think the studio did a really good job turning out a pretty decent video for the song. Check it out…

Video Premiere: Ariana Grande Ft. Zedd – Break Free

by: Taj | August 13th, 2014

I guess sci-fi inspired music videos are the hot trend these days. Shortly after I posted the visually stunning science fiction inspired video for Robyn’s latest single, Ariana Grande launched this clip for her latest single “Break Free” into orbit today. Though Ariana’s take on sci-fi plays very differently than Robyn’s, it’s still a fun little vid that is kind of an nod to couple of old-school ‘futuristic’ themed TV show such as Land of the Lost and the original Star Trek! Check it out…

New Music: Ariana Grande Ft. Big Sean – Best Mistake

by: Taj | August 12th, 2014

Ariana Grande is proving to be unstoppable with every new single she releases! Today she unleashed her next huge smash titled “Big Mistake“. Though the song isn’t a club banger like her pervious few hit singles, the hauntingly gorgeous melody will be stuck in your head and begging to be played on repeat after just one listen! Find out for yourself…

New Music: Hilary Duff – All About You

by: Taj | August 12th, 2014

Hilary Duff is keeping the hype-train rolling and has just released her “official” first single titled “All About You” shortly after teasing us with a buzz cut she dropped last week called “Chasing The Sun“. I have to admit, though “Chasing The Sun” was cute little song, I didn’t really feel it had strong commercial appeal. This new one however… I’m loving it and will work much better as a lead single for the former Disney star’s comeback project! Check it out…

Remix Treatment: Bingo Players – Knock You Down (Cajjmere Wray ‘Only’ Remix)

by: Taj | August 12th, 2014

I’m always a sucker for a epic EDM vocal and the Bimbo Players delivered just that with their latest single “Knock You Out“. Something else I’, a sucker for is when an epic EDM vocal gets a circuit-house style remix treatment, uniting two different worlds of the dance music genre together and Cajjmere Wray did just that with his remix of the Bingo Players song! Press play and get into it!!

Remix Treatment: Beyonce – ***Flawless (Country Club Martini Remix)

by: Taj | August 7th, 2014

So my least favorite track on Beyonce’s (now practically forgotten about new album) “***Flawless” has received a Country Club Martini remix!! Though they definitely improved on the snooze of a song, I’m still not a fan of the song itself but Beyonce better ‘bow down’ to CCM for making her song tolerable!!

Video Premiere: Neon Hitch – Yard Sale

by: Taj | August 6th, 2014

Neon Hitch is back with a fun new song & vid called “Yard Sale“. The empowering new single about letting go of old baggage is Neon’s personal anthem about her emotional & creative struggles that she endure with her old (major) label before finally taking her freedom back by letting them go. I’m really digging the dace-pop ditty and am looking forward to some hot remixes!!
