Wow, I actually like Mariah Carey’s new video. A lot.
2013 British Album of the Year winner Emeli Sandé today unveiled the “remix” version of “Next To Me.” I’m using quotation marks here because the Kendrick Lamar-assisted song is lazy. As talented as he is, Lamar doesn’t add anything to the song.
The ballad “Explosions” is creeping up on the UK charts, and the Stay+ remix will probably fuel interest on the song.
The sexy boys of Kazaky are back with a new video and it’s hot.
You gotta admire Ciara for trying repeatedly, but at one point you have to wonder if she really has what it takes to revive her sinking career.
Produced by Mike WiLL Made It, “Body Party” tries too hard and fails. Worse, it’s melody-free and the lyrics are forgettable.
More info from Billboard.com:
Ciara has teamed up with her boyfriend, Future, for “Body Party.” The rapper, who co-wrote the song with his main squeeze and Mike WiLL, can be heard throughout with his “ooh’s” and ad-libs. “If you listen closely, you can [hear him],” she told The Juice while giggling.
I’m a Ciara fan, but “Body Parts” does absolutely nothing for me. Featuring productions by Rodney Jerkins, The Underdogs, Rock City, and Mike WiLL Made It and featuring appearances by Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross, One Woman Army is still slated for a June release — but don’t be surprised if the project is shelved altogether soon.
“Now I’m All Messed Up,” one of the highlights of the stellar Heartthrob album, gets a lyric video today.
On their Tumblr page, Tegan & Sara revealed why they decided to create the video:
As soon as we started playing the songs from Heartthrob live at shows, “Now I’m All Messed Up” emerged as a major fan favourite. It’s nearly impossible to not get caught up in the feelings of the song when performing it, so it’s very fun to see the entire crowd be drawn in as we lay it all out there on the stage! Things get emotional!
We wanted to bring that same level of emotion to the lyric video for the song, and we really think we achieved that with the unique ink and water treatment that brings to mind writing a good old fashioned heartbreaking letter and sobbing all over it! We were excited to be working with Travis Hopkins again who created the lyric video for Closer, he did such a great job, we love it and hope you do too!
Personally, I LIVE for this song, so I’m not surprised it’s getting a lot of attention from fans. Would be cool to see it as a single at one point.
