Whatcha Say: Jennifer Lopez, Madonna And Miley Cyrus Got Our Readers Talking

Happy Friday, Idolator readers! You ready to shake your booty for the weekend?

‘Twas yet another exciting week in pop, as Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea twerked their way through the rump-tastic “Booty” video. Also, Miley Cyrus just got spanked — with a potential lawsuit, that is! And before all the butt stuff, two major ’00′s solo pop queen comebacks are reportedly in the works: Gwen Stefani and Fergie! In fact, we’ve already got a snippet of Fergie Ferg’s new single! Are you guys exited about their return?

Over at Idolator, we had a chat in our studio with Ferras, as well as a sit-down with Sound Of A Woman songstress, Kiesza. Watch out for those coming up soon! Also, have you checked out our 13 great overlooked pop albums yet?

As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out some of the week’s best comments below.

:: Lashan also noted the “Sexercize” similarities in J.Lo’s “Booty” video on Jennifer Lopez & Iggy Azalea’s “Booty” Video Plays Like A Decent Kylie Minogue “Sexercize” Tribute: Watch: “Ariana Grande’s break free also had a few kylie concepts…The anti gravity chamber from Kylie’s “put yourself in my place” video and her outfit is from Kylie’s US tour….These chix copy the Fack outta her,while her album buying fanbase is on the decline…and she never gets nominated for anything…EMA’s?”

:: PJ was, erm, less enthusiastic about the Fergie comeback on Gwen Stefani Reportedly Releasing Single “Baby Don’t Lie” In October: “To even think there are people waiting for a new Fergie is something i don’t know if i should laugh at or be scared of maybe both. Fergie has always been a subpar Gwen Stefani, a Wall Mart version and is with her b(l)and the black eyed pee responsible for the worst tracks that have EVER polluted the airwaves.”

:: bello russo isn’t feeling Babs’ historic new LP on Barbra Streisand On Track For Record 10th Number One Album With ‘Partners’: “such a boring album. it’s almost impossible to listen. not classical but old. not traditional but liveless. it’s a a torturous experience to listen to it at one go. disappointment.”

:: And Paul A. came up with a sassy retort: “Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Chris Brown’s latest album.”

:: davidsask was in hot pursuit of truth on Robin Thicke Admits Fake “Blurred Lines” Songwriting Credit & Drug Problem In Outrageous Court Deposition: “Beyonce needs to be the next person to admit to stealing credits!”

:: Jeremiah was freaking out for more MDNA on Madonna’s New Single Is Reportedly Almost Finished: “I love Madonna and am always super excited for everything and anything she does, no one else does that to me.”

:: As was xSushi, with a side of shade: “Madge herself is a draw, but this lineup of collaborators has me beyond excited as well!!”

:: Upon hearing the news of new Lambert, Zenber1 was thrilled on Adam Lambert Talks New Label (Yay!), Third Album (YES!) & Queen (Woo Hoo!): Watch His Interview With Ryan Seacrest: “Awesome! Adam is indeed an f’ing rock star!”

:: Anthony A. got good vibes from the new Jessie J. snippet on Jessie J Is Red Hot On The Cover Of “Burnin’ Up”: Listen To A Snippet Of Her New Single: “Sounds like a good song I think Jessie J has finally found the right style just for her.”

:: When Miley got spanked with the Mexican flag, Uri couldn’t get enough on Facebook: “At this point I just enjoy these so much because we’re all still fucking paying attention for no reason whatsoever and it’s fucking ridiculous – GO MILEY!”

:: And finally, Russ N. could teach Gaga a thing or two on Lady Gaga Arrives In Athen, Gets Naked And Posts Photos On Instagram (Semi NSFW, Obviously): “She just never learns… overexposed in more ways than one.”

Austin Mahone Joins Pia Mia On A Soulful Cover Of Craig David’s “Fill Me In”: Listen

It’s not easy to make the leap from buzzed-about social media siren to legit pop star but Pia Mia takes another giant stride towards her end goal with “Fill Me In”. The 18-year-old, who came to fame covering hits on YouTube, has already released a bunch of cute urban-pop songs (“Red Love” and “Mr. President”) but her latest track displays a new level of maturity.

The Guam-born diva tackles Craig David‘s 2000 debut single “Fill Me In” — with a little help from Austin Mahone, no less — and she makes it her own with confident vocals and slick production courtesy of Nic Nac (the dude behind Chris Brown‘s “Loyal”). Pia’s debut LP is set to drop later this year via Interscope Records. Listen to her killer cover after the jump.

Miriam Bryant’s New Single Is Really, Really Good: Listen To “Dragon”

Given the quality of voice and knack for writing catchy pop songs, you can’t help but think Miriam Bryant is a couple of lucky breaks away from cracking America like fellow Swede Tove Lo. The 23-year-old came close a couple of times — Zedd collaboration “Push Play” was, at one point, going to be the follow up to “Clarity” — but she might have more luck with new single “Dragon”.

The first taste of the rising diva’s sophomore LP is a heady dose of Scandinavian electro-pop with a chorus that soars despite the confusing lyrics. (“I’ll be your dragon tonight” sounds more like a threat than a declaration of love!) Not that it matters. “Dragon” showcases the full range of Miriam’s powerful pipes and the song gets stuck in your head regardless of the Game Of Thrones-evoking subject matter. Listen after the jump.

Jennifer Lopez And Iggy Azalea’s “Booty” Video Is Glorious Soft Porn: Here Are The 16 Sexiest Moments

If you’re going to put out a song about ass, you’d better be prepared to show a little. Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea, however, go above and beyond with their eye-popping “Booty” visual. The bottom-heavy babes spend most of the clip shaking their butts and groping each other in various states of undress, which makes it potentially the greatest lesbian soft porn extravaganza of all time.

To commemorate this magical achievement, I’ve lovingly — after considerable research and several replays — curated a gallery of the video’s sexiest moments. Who will ever forget when the rap diva smacks J.Lo’s butt or Jenny’s temperature-raising solo at the end? It’s like the finale of Flashdance only a million times hotter. Peruse the pics up top and rewatch the clip after the jump.

Milky Chance Take A Trip To The Country In “Flashed Junk Mind”: Watch The Idyllic Video

70d4a24d2ee6575770b939e73ea9ba37 Milky Chance Take A Trip To The Country In “Flashed Junk Mind”: Watch The Idyllic Video
We Were Bound To The City Life

While Milky Chance continue to climb the Billboard Hot 100 with breakthrough hit “Stolen Dance” (it rises to a new peak of number 61 this week), the German duo has already moved on to their next single in most international markets. It looks like they are going with endearing folk-pop gem “Flashed Junk Mind” and today (September 19) they drop the suitably nostalgic video.

Philipp and Clemens take a trip to the country with a bunch of friends and spend the clip climbing rocks, walking through forests, riding motorcycles and hanging out of cars. It’s joyous and idyllic but there’s still an undercurrent of melancholy that suits the lilting song. Milky Chance drop their excellent debut LP Sadnecessary on October 14 in the US. Watch “Flashed Junk Mind” up top.

Pitbull Brings Carnival To A Club In His Super Suave “Fireball” Video: Watch Mr. Worldwide Charm The Ladies

a0c63265de43b22b2906985b35da9c69 Pitbull Brings Carnival To A Club In His Super Suave “Fireball” Video: Watch Mr. Worldwide Charm The Ladies
Move Over James Bond

At this point, I don’t even consider Pitbull a guilty pleasure anymore. His club bangers are always on point, he’s the Sonny to J.Lo‘s Cher and “Timber” will go down in pop history as the greatest square dance-inducing rap song of all time. He gets it just right on new Wallpaper-produced, John Ryan-assisted party jam “Fireball” too. What a legend.

So what can you expect from Mr. Worldwide’s latest video? Well, it’s set in the ’20s or ’30s (if the dapper costumes are any indication) and brings Brazilian carnival to a small nightclub, where Pit drinks his own brand of vodka — great promo! — and runs into the sexy lady of his dreams. There’s even a live animation segment. Watch the amiable rapper do his thing up top.

Fergie Is Officially Back! Listen To A Snippet Of Comeback Single “L.A. Love (La La)”

Comeback Queen!

And she’s back! Fergie unveiled the first taste of comeback single “L.A. Love (La La)” today (September 19) and it’s already glaringly obvious that she has an infuriatingly catchy smash on her hands. The 1:45 snippet sounds like a loop of a much shorter clip — she literally just repeats city names and says “la la la la” — but I don’t care if she spends the whole song selecting random towns from an Atlas.

There’s not much else to take from the mysterious preview, which premiered during a fashion show in Milan. The 39-year-old’s voice is on point and she rides the bouncy hip-hop beat with ease. It’s basically The Dutchess 2.0, which is exactly what her fans have been waiting for. Production details haven’t been released yet but it sounds like a Mike WiLL Made It or DJ Mustard joint to me. Listen after the jump.

Jessie J Is Red Hot On The Cover Of “Burnin’ Up”: Listen To A Snippet Of Her New Single

Jessie J staged one of the year’s most unexpected yet very welcome comebacks with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj-assisted smash “Bang Bang”. The unstoppable anthem was a timely reminder of the diva’s incredible vocal prowess and she’s going to run with the momentum by swiftly moving on to “Burnin’ Up” — the second taste of new LP Sweet Talker.

Produced by red-hot hitmakers Wallpaper and Axident, “Burnin’ Up” sounds like a nuclear-powered club-banger with major radio appeal. “I got a fever tell me what did you do, temperature risin’ when I look at you,” sing/howls the Brit over slick beats in a snippet that appeared on her Instagram account today (September 19). Can’t wait to hear 2 Chainz‘s verse! Check it out after the jump

Shayne Ward Is Working With Producer Mike Stock On His Next Album, And We’re Pretty Excited About That

Let’s be clear about one thing: Shayne Ward‘s sophomore album, 2007′s Breathless, is a highly underrated beacon of pop perfection. Written and produced primarily by Rami Yacoub (with some additional help from Max Martin, Ryan Tedder, Savan Kotecha and a smattering of other heavyweights), the album was somewhat of UK success that spawned hits in Manchester native Ward’s home country like “No U Hang Up,” “If That’s OK With You” and title track “Breathless.”

If you’re not up on Ward (as many in the States likely aren’t), he was the winner of the second season of The X Factor UK, back in 2005, and was signed to Simon Cowell‘s label Syco. Unfortunately for Shayne, Cowell was pretty tied up with his American TV dealings, and so a good three years passed between Breathless and the release of the singer’s third album, Obsession. After poor sales, Ward was released from his label deal in 2011. Upon this, the handsome crooner tweeted, “1 door closed, A Thousand more will open.”

Following all that business, Shayne busied himself with gigs like acting on the West End stage in Rock Of Ages and showing off his fancy footwork on Dancing On Ice in the UK. He also posed for some rather provocative photos, proving that, in addition to his soulful, high tenor, Ward possesses other great assets, too.

So here we are in 2014, and Ward has now in the process of working on his fourth album with legendary British pop maestro Mike Stock. The latter is responsible for this:

And this:

And this:

And, yes, even this:

In other words, this Shayne Ward album, which is coming in February 2015, could possibly be the most mind-blowing pop experience of the decade. I’ll even go out on a limb and say that Shayne’s got the best voice of anyone Stock has worked with since Donna Summer.

Added bonus: Ward has partnered up with PledgeMusic for funding for the album…or, in Ward’s own words, “to give you and fellow fans the chance to pre-order the new album plus get your hands on all sorts of other goodies and cool things such as seeing your name in the album booklet, a personalized video message from me, a personal Skype session with me, the opportunity to come along to my next photo shoot or even the chance to take me on in a karaoke sing-off.”

We leave you now with these past gems from Shayne:

“No U Hang Up”

“Breathless”

‘Queen Forever’ Compilation Tracklist Revealed, As Are William Orbit’s Thoughts On The Michael Jackson/Freddie Mercury Duet

With the Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson duet “There Must Be More To Life Than This” now out there, the full details of the upcoming compilation Queen Forever (out November 10) have also now been revealed. The release will include a 20-track single album version, as well as a 36-track two-disc version. In addition to all the hits included (some of which are “new takes on well-known songs,” per a press release) are the duet with Jackson as produced by William Orbit, a previously unfinished Queen track (with Freddie Mercury) called “Let Me In Your Heart Again” and a new, stripped-down rendition of Mercury’s 1984 Giorgio Moroder collaboration from the Metropolis soundtrack, “Love Kills.”

On the subject of Queen and Michael Jackson’s “There Must Be More To Life Than This,” William Orbit stated the following in a press release:

“I had known Roger [Taylor] for many years, now he was on the phone asking if I would get involved in this musical adventure.

“When I first played it in my studio I opened a trove of delights provided by the greatest of musicians. Hearing Michael Jackson’s vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie’s vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level.

“The musicianship of all four members of Queen is phenomenal. Roger, an extraordinarily multi talented man I’ve always admired. John Deacon’s original bass part with its lyrical fluidity that made it easy for me to know where to put the odd reinforcement. Freddie’s original piano carried most of the song’s musical DNA. Brian, one take for the solo, a blur of fingers, and the spirits of MJ and FM fully present, in the moment, sending shivers down the spine.”

“There Must Be More To Life Than This” was originally penned in 1981 during the recording of Queen’s album Hot Space. The band recorded their backing track, then Mercury visited Jackson’s home studio in Los Angeles, where vocals were laid down.

As stated in the Queen Forever press release, “Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984’s The Works, but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985’s Mr Bad Guy.”

Below is the full Queen Forever tracklist:
