Video premiere: Goin’ In – Jennifer Lopez featuring Flo Rida

Goin' In - Jennifer Lopez featuring Flo Rida

Just like the song itself, the “Goin’ In” video is your typical and generic dance affair. It’s colourful, there is some dancing, and it features a rapper who you may or may not recognize. (It’s Flo Rida in this case, by the way, in case you’re wondering.)

Sure, Lopez looks stunning for a 43-year old, but this video shows absolutely nothing. The choreography is weak, the outfits are a tad predictable, and the set looks okay. Not a big win for JLo.

Amazing! Marina & The Diamonds releases “Teen Idle” live video

Marina & The Diamonds

Out of nowhere, Marina & The Diamonds has released a video for “Teen Idle”. The video, a recording of a live performance in London, showcases Marina’s talents in full. Using only a piano and her amazing vocal chops, the songstress wows the crowd and pretty much slays.

#MusicMonday – Fiona Apple – “Every Single Night”

Hands.

I’m not super familiar with Fiona Apple’s past work, but I’m totally loving her new album.

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do is a collection of brave, thoughtful piano-driven pop songs that is simply like a breathe of fresh air. Tracks like “Valentine” have a more conventional pop production, while songs such as “Left Alone” are more jazzy.

Idler Wheel is Fiona Apple’s first album in six years, and lead single “Every Single Night” is uncompromising. The video is equally as weird and wacky (look out for the octopus hat that makes multiple appearances). Despite the seemingly random images, the general theme of water gives the video a unified feel.  Watch it below.

Lana Del Rey releases yet another music video

Can we just name Lana Del Rey the queen of music videos and get it over with?

Just a few weeks after releasing the stunning “National Anthem” video, Del Rey is back with “Summertime Sadness”, a gorgeous, vintage-inspired video that touches on friendship (lesbianism?), depression, and suicides.  Just like before, Del Rey is alternating between slick videos and less-polished ones. “Summertime Sadness” is not as slick as, say, “Born To Die”, but it is equally as cinematic and poetic.

Lana Del Rey slaaaays again.
