Am I the only one surprised that Sia isn’t a household name yet? After having her hands in some of the biggest pop hits of the past two years—Rihanna’s “Diamonds”, etc.—you’d think she’ll be more well known in North America by now.
Sia’s next project is a collaboration for the soundtrack of the next Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire. “Elastic Heart” also features The Weeknd and Diplo. Loving this one: it’s weird-ish (because of Sia’s vocals and unique delivery), but the production is also very contemporary.
If there’s one thing you can expect from Britney Spears, it’s that she releases great videos. The latest evidence: the video for “Work Bitch.”
The Ben Mor-directed video features the pop icon dancing and lip synching while in various locations, including a dessert, a club, and in the middle of the ocean. Love the visuals—and it’s everything you’d expect from a Britney video—but the choreography could have been fiercer. A lot fiercer.
Still, I love this.
To celebrate Lorde stealing the #1 spot on iTunes from Miley Cyrus, here’s “Royal” from the 16-year old new artist.
Tegan and Sara’s dogs make their own shot by shot version of their owner’s hit “Closer.”
Self-empowerment is not a new theme in pop music. From Christina Aguilera to Katy Perry, pop stars tell you to roar, to be brave, to be beautiful.
But if you’re Britney, you tell them the damn truth.
While everyone is gagging over Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” check out what the classy Ellie Goulding is serving up.
