Gorgon City’s “Unmissable” Video Details A Love Connection On The Dance Floor: Watch

0b0f1e263f56dc2354da7331e0de27a2 Gorgon City’s “Unmissable” Video Details A Love Connection On The Dance Floor: Watch

Across a room full of people dancing, a young man and woman make eye contact and begin to move toward each other. So begins the video for Gorgon City‘s “Unmissable,” the UK duo’s latest house-infused strobe light anthem off upcoming album Sirens (out October 7). We also see snapshots of the pair running in a dark space toward a blinding light, and later holding each other on the balcony of a building while staring into the sunset, as soulful vocalist Zak Abel belts out the lyrics to the moody club track.

By the end of the visual, everything literally comes crashing down around the couple. Can love survive, despite the danger lurking all around? Watch the “Unmissable” video above and decide for yourself.

Maroon 5 Covers Marcy Playground’s ’90s Classic “Sex And Candy”: Listen To The ‘V’ Bonus Track

348901e552647f0bbf87fb60add6554b Maroon 5 Covers Marcy Playground’s ’90s Classic “Sex And Candy”: Listen To The ‘V’ Bonus Track

The dudes from Maroon 5 were obviously feeling nostalgic when they recorded V. Lead single “Maps” is a welcome throwback to moody reggae/rock of The Police, while uptempo buzz track “It Was Always You” taps into the shadowy synth-rock of bands like The Killers. Need more proof? Just take a listen to one of the album’s (rather great) bonus tracks.

I’m talking about the group’s cover of Marcy Playground‘s “Sex And Candy”. A top 10 in 1997, the song lives on a post-grunge classic that is still played with alarming frequency on adult rock radio stations today. As such, my gut instinct is that Maroon 5 should have left it alone but their faithful version is a well-executed reminder that the late ’90s were, well, completely awesome. Listen after the jump.

Do you love Maroon 5′s version or is the original still the best? Have your say in the comments below.

62c76a5c32d334218b186744e6b3c41f Ariana Grande Performs “Break Free” Live On ‘America’s Got Talent’: Watch

It’s been a huge week for Miss Ariana Grande, what with her powerhouse opening performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, the premiere of the video for “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj and the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album, My Everything. And yes, that girl just keeps on going!

Last night, Ari hit the stage at Radio City Music Hall in NYC during the live results show for America’s Got Talent to perform her Zedd-assisted summer smash, “Break Free.” Rocking a cute pair of kitty ears and her signature big ponytail and thigh-high boots look, the tiny diva-in-training crooned her way through the tune up and down the stage, providing some sassy hip thrusts and hair flips along the way. Did she make you proud, Arianators?

Check out Ariana’s performance of “Break Free” on AGT up top, and let us know what you thought in the comments below.

The Chainsmokers Premiere Cinderella-Inspired Video For “Kanye”: Watch

fd4cc05bab5731aefedf1ee1c60147e7 The Chainsmokers Premiere Cinderella Inspired Video For “Kanye”: Watch

There was simply no escaping The Chainsmokers‘ massive, ironic club killer “#Selfie” this year. So how could the duo follow up the massive success of their Instagram-friendly offering? With a little bit of inspiration, that’s what.

After premiering “Kanye” in early August, the accompanying visual for their surprisingly sincere new single is equally touching as it is rave-a-licious.

It’s a classic Cinderella tale, as a hotel maid toils away on the floor while two girls jabber in the bathroom (a hilarious nod to “#Selfie”) before ultimately deciding to slip into something a bit sexier while they’re out, head out on the town live life to the fullest, YOLO style. But fear not, she doesn’t go total socialite on us: Our gorgeous heroine eventually strips herself of the glamorous accoutrements, walks back home and returns to her family. The lesson? It’s all about knowing who you really are. (Ariana would agree.)

Check out the video for “Kanye” above. Does it make you want to rock a crown too? Let us know in the comments below.

Jason Derulo Premieres Colorful “Bubblegum” Lyric Video: Watch

30476342223261908b2face6b1bff5dc Jason Derulo Premieres Colorful “Bubblegum” Lyric Video: Watch

Jason Derulo has truly blessed us with so many gifts this year, from his inescapable, horn-heavy “Talk Dirty” to his equally inescapable, whistle-heavy “Wiggle.” And now, he’s teaching us The Art Of Blowing Bubblegum.

With his latest single, which is featured on the American edition of Talk Dirty and due to be released in Australia, the “Marry Me” entertainer meets a lady with a “ghetto booty” and a penchant for blowing — some bubblegum, that is. “She just wanna pop, pop, pop that bubblegum,” he merrily explains above a chugging hip-pop beat, which is as catchy as any of his other recent uptempo jams. That Derulo reign!

Check out the lyric video above, where you can count how many times Derulo sings the term “ghetto booty.” (Spoiler alert: It’s a lot.)

The fall “Rebel” issue of fashion glossy V won’t hit newsstands until September 10, but Miley Cyrus is already teasing her Karl Lagerfeld cover shoot for the publication on Instagram — with a nude photo, naturally. A forum member named Dieselmax on the site The Fashion Spot posted a snapshot of V‘s upcoming cover featuring Miley, where she’s posing in what looks like a revealing, blue plush swimsuit number while laying on a pile of stuffed animals.

The image Cyrus posted on Instagram (see it below) has her ditching the outfit in lieu of her birthday suit. Come on — you knew she couldn’t keep her clothes on for long.

La Roux’s Next ‘Trouble In Paradise’ Single Might Be “Sexotheque”


La Roux‘s Trouble In Paradise may have slipped under the radar for the general public, but that doesn’t change the fact that Elly Jackson‘s long-awaited follow-up is a real summertime disco gem.

After serving up a corker of a lead single “Uptight Downtown,” Elly’s apparently going with one of the album’s highlights next: “Sexotheque,” a funky, endlessly catchy ode to a couple with two very different goals — one of which is waiting to be wed, while the other is sneaking out at night for some fun at the sexotheque.

Yesterday, the jam was added to the IGA Promotion Soundcloud — usually an early determiner of forthcoming singles from the label. I’m not betting man, but…oh I bet money, money, money I bet — it’s “Sexotheque”!

What do you think of “Sexotheque” as a single for La Roux? Let us know in the comments below!

Mathew Knowles Claims That Jay Z and Solange’s Elevator Brawl Was Staged To Boost Ticket Sales


If Mathew Knowles‘ relationship with Beyonce wasn’t strained already, it will be after she hears about his latest run-in with the media. The mastermind behind Destiny’s Child talked about his famous offspring during an interview with a Houston radio program this morning (August 27) and claimed that Solange‘s elevator brawl with Jay Z was staged to boost ticket sales for The Carters’ On The Run tour.

“There’s a tour going on,” the 63-year-old explained. “So you have to sometimes ignite that tour, it’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time.” He wasn’t done there. “Everybody’s talking about it, ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 per cent.” Wow. What kind of dad publicly accuses his daughters of fraud? Amusingly, he claims to still be managing Destiny’s Child and says he speaks with Bey every Sunday. They are going to have an interesting conversation this week. Listen to the interview after the jump.

Mathew talks about the elevator incident at around the six minute mark of Part 1.

Let us know what you think of his version of events in the comments below.
