Boots Talks About Reworking Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”, Hints At More New Music

083c7866b4c165e26a0245c92a0d82f3 Boots Talks About Reworking Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”, Hints At More New Music

If you’ve been online in the past couple of days, you’re probably already aware that a reworked version of Beyonce‘s seminal 2003 hit “Crazy In Love” scores the new 50 Shades Of Grey trailer. Boots, the rising producer behind most of Queen Bey’s game-changing visual album, was at the helm again and spoke to Complex about the latest endeavor with his iconic muse.

The producer has a very simple reason for reviving Bey’s signature song. “Falling in love can make you do crazy shit,” he says. “That was the spirit of the original song in the first place, we flipped it and it kind of became a whole thing.” Boots was also full of praise for the On The Run performer (“whenever it comes to the stuff that Bey and I do, I’ll never speak for her, but I think that she killed it”) and vaguely hinted at more to come (“there’s a lot of shit that’s coming up”). Can’t wait.

Read the full interview over at Complex and let us know if you are ready for more Boots and Beyonce in the comments below.

The Vamps Take Over Garden State Plaza Westfield Mall: Watch

851530913e297eedea705dc519c792f1 The Vamps Take Over Garden State Plaza Westfield Mall: Watch

Want to gauge a pop act’s popularity? Bring them to the mall and watch what happens.

After smashing the charts at #4 across the pond, The Vamps — one of Britain’s hottest new imports at the moment — are preparing for a full stateside takeover with their latest single “Somebody To You.” (You know, the one Demi Lovato herself endorsed by providing a feature on the track last month!)

To promote the track, the boys decided to hold a performance and meet and greet for fans at the Garden State Plaza Westfield Mall yesterday, which you can now watch above. And, judging by the screaming, selfie-taking teens that crowded into the venue, it seems that they’ve already made quite an impression.

Watch above as the boys charmingly goof off behind-the-scenes in the mall offices, meet some fans, perform their track in front of the crowd and get escorted away from the shaking and crying crowd by mall security. Then, head below to see the troupe perform the track live on The Today Show this morning. Will The Vamps be the next troupe to top the charts in the US? Let us know in the comments below.

Along with the release of their upcoming Somebody To You EP out on August 4, the boys are now preparing to head out on tour with Austin Mahone and Shawn Mendes.

Jessie Ware Debuts Dreamy ‘Tough Love’ Track, “Share It All”: Listen

ea15d06505dad2535640b5803b9b0ea8 Jessie Ware Debuts Dreamy ‘Tough Love’ Track, “Share It All”: Listen

Still begging for more “Tough Love”?

UK darling Jessie Ware sent chills rippling down our back with the lead single from her forthcoming sophomore record, Tough Love, and she’s looking to keep that chilly vibe coming with her equally delicate new tune, “Share It All.”

The album track, which will reportedly be featured on the deluxe version of the album, sees Jessie teaming up longtime collaborator and producer Julio Bashmore, along with co-writing assistance from The XX‘s Romy Madley Croft.

The end result is something of a cross between The XX’s debut xx and Jessie’s own Devotion, reveling in dreamy guitars and light electronic pulsations. “Tell me what you want me to do, exchange the information,” Jessie instructs across the chilled-out production. Care to share?

Listen to Jessie’s “Share It All” after the jump, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Madison Beer’s “Unbreakable (Monsieur Adi Remix)”: Idolator Premiere

0481593c981ede781fde2a3d05cd4427 Madison Beer’s “Unbreakable (Monsieur Adi Remix)”: Idolator Premiere

Madison Beer, not your typical 15 year old, is an on-the-rise pop sensation hailing from Long Island whose career is being guided by recently hitched mega-manager Scooter Braun. She recently followed up her debut single “Melodies” with “Unbreakable,” a song produced by Emanuel Kiriakou (Demi Lovato, Celine Dion) and Andrew Goldstein.

On its own, the track is an uplifting pop anthem with hefty dollop of positivity mixed in with Beer’s lyrics. But enter remix wiz Monsieur Adi, who has now taken “Unbreakable” to a new euphoric level with his reworking of Madison’s song.

Listen to Monsier Adi’s overhaul of “Unbreakable” below, then let us know your thoughts on the remix.

The news you’ve been waiting for is finally here, KatyCats!

After coming in with a “Roar,” loving us “Unconditionally” and riding on a “Dark Horse” with Juicy J and throwing us a “Birthday” bash, The Prism princess is returning with a surefire summer anthem: “This Is How We Do.”

Earlier this AM, Miss Perry premiered the retro video game-themed lyric video for her sparkling, Klas Åhlund & Max Martin-produced Prism uptempo jam, which puts a colorful spin on her oh-so-silly lyricism. “YO! Impress all ur homies & stay straight stuntin by learning deez lyrics to keep ur party trill,” she tweeted. Oh, that zany Katy!

Beyonce Gives “Crazy In Love” A Dramatic Makeover In Full ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Trailer: Watch

33bf27e9116df797d6d2fa202741df88 Beyonce Gives “Crazy In Love” A Dramatic Makeover In Full ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Trailer: Watch

“Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh…”

Beyoncé is just full of surprises.

On Sunday, the Queen of Unannounced Visual Albums unexpectedly dropped the tantalizing teaser for the hotly anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, everyone and their grandma’s favorite introduction to BDSM. The brief tease also supplied us with a few notes of what sounded like a dark and mysterious reworking of her 2003 debut solo single, “Crazy In Love” — and now, we’ve got even more of the song to enjoy.

This morning, the full Fifty trailer hit the web and, steamy flirting and heavy petting aside, the clip includes an extended preview of B’s mesmerizing “Crazy In Love” re-work. Far from the upbeat pop sound of the original, the gloomy and dramatic number breathes new life into the song as King Bey seductively yelps and purrs above cinematic strings and a slow-marching drum beat, almost bringing Lana Del Rey to mind. It’s a haunting and chilly makeover — no doubt a fitting vibe for the film.

Listen to Bey work it out in the full trailer after the jump, and let us know what you think of Bey’s contribution to the S&M-themed film in the comments below.

Justin Bieber Posts An Album’s Worth Of Song Snippets On Instagram: Listen To All 11 Clips

15ef879712a6e3245b33d776cb347dfa Justin Bieber Posts An Album’s Worth Of Song Snippets On Instagram: Listen To All 11 Clips

Justin Bieber, more famous these days for drag racing, egging houses and making racist jokes on camera than for his music, has revealed that he’s actually been cobbling together songs for what one would assume is a new album. He did so via the time-tested news outlet of Instagram, where the tatted-up heartthrob posted a grand total of 11 new song snippets last night.

Many of them are R&B slow jams, one is a dance number, there’s a dash of reggae-lite, two are cutesy guitar-pop ballads and one prompted a certain Belieber to comment, “Fvck me Justin!!”

If you yourself would like Justin to fvck you, that’s probably not going to happen. But at least you can listen to bits of his new baby-making music below.

Future Hit: Sheppard’s “Geronimo” Is Almost Offensively Catchy

571f113014d86b542c643f3c2999d526 Future Hit: Sheppard’s “Geronimo” Is Almost Offensively Catchy

There’s catchy and then there’s “Geronimo”. Australian indie-pop collective Sheppard unleashed the unstoppable sing-a-long anthem at home earlier this year and scored their first number one hit (a rare feat for an independent act) and eventually sold triple platinum. The runaway smash soon caught the attention of overseas labels and the band is now a priority for Republic Records in the US.

So what makes “Geronimo” so irresistible? Well, the giddy pop anthem has hooks upon hooks and the kind of chorus that gets lodged in your head from the very first listen. It will be interesting to see if the song clicks over here but it would be unwise to bet against it. Check out the colorful “international” version of the video above and the original Australian version after the jump.

Will “Geronimo” work in America? Have your say in the comments below.
