Lil’ Kim Drops A Short But Sweet Remix Of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”: Listen

b4095fdebfb58741e495dc46f4abd106 Lil’ Kim Drops A Short But Sweet Remix Of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”: Listen

Motherhood hasn’t mellowed Lil’ Kim one iota. The Queen Bee returned with a vengeance by scalping Nicki Minaj in scathing remixes of Beyonce‘s “***Flawless” and Rae Sremmurd‘s “No Flex Zone”. Today (August 28), she turns down the hate on a short — it only goes for 55 seconds! — but enjoyable overhaul of Iggy Azalea‘s summer smash “Fancy”.

“Fly girl I should have my own airline, Chanel belt couple thousand on my waistline,” Kim raps over that unmistakeable beat. “I might waste money but I don’t waste time.” It’s frustrating that she didn’t deliver a full remix because this is really cute. Hopefully Iggy appreciates the love and invites the hip-hop legend to join her on a new song in the not-too-distant future. Listen after the jump.

Redfoo Returns With “New Thang”: Watch The Sexy Sax Man-Featuring Video

e93f073f06bd21ef51ab607969d20d39 Redfoo Returns With “New Thang”: Watch The Sexy Sax Man Featuring Video

If you’re still mourning the loss of dance legends LMFAO (and, let’s face it, who isn’t?), new music from afro-toting frontman Redfoo is balm for the soul. “New Thang” is being promoted as the lead single from the 38-year-old’s debut LP — what does that make Australian chart-topper “Let’s Get Ridiculous”? — and features the talents of Sexy Sax Man.

Despite being the latest in an increasingly long line of “Talk Dirty”-inspired sax-heavy club anthems, Redfoo’s party jam is impossible to hate. (Feel free to try, though). The cheesy/amusing lyrics that made LMFAO’s music so much fun are present and the colorful video, which finds our hero putting moves on the ladies, is suitably irreverent. Watch up top.

Are you here for the return of Redfoo? Let us know in the comments below.

David Guetta Has Composed A 60-Minute Megamix For Your Labor Day Weekend: Listen

c37a4921979386b49e5646da7a1ca87b David Guetta Has Composed A 60 Minute Megamix For Your Labor Day Weekend: Listen

Throwing a party this weekend but have no idea what music to play? Stop stressing, David Guetta‘s got you! The French producer has kindly composed a 60-minute megamix featuring the biggest dance hits of 2014 (with a couple of golden oldies thrown into for good measure) especially for Labor Day parties. And it’s pretty hard to fault his selections.

The hour-long floorfiller kicks off with a double shot of recent Guetta singles (“Shot Me Down” and “Bad”) before transitioning into Afrojack‘s “Ten Feet Tall”. That’s followed by Calvin Harris“Summer” and the 46-year-old’s own smash “Lovers On The Sun”. Other highlights include Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be” and Coldplay‘s “A Sky Full Of Stars”. Listen to the monster mix after the jump.

Joe Jonas Is Feeling “Young & Reckless”: Listen To The Previously Unreleased Track

dd6aaf57d2c3187cee34c2cbdc465efb Joe Jonas Is Feeling “Young & Reckless”: Listen To The Previously Unreleased Track

With hype building about Nick Jonas‘ new soul-pop sound and imminent LP, it’s easy to forget that older brother Joe Jonas tried to make a similar transition to solo stardom in 2011 with (largely) electro-pop opus Fastlife. The album didn’t perform as well as he (or his fans) had hoped but there are still plenty of gems to be found among the Danja and Hit-Boy-produced tracks.

That makes the arrival of “Young & Restless” cause for celebration. Jonas Brothers internet scholars (ie. crazy fans) are in agreement that the song is an unused demo from the Fastlife sessions and I’m inclined to agree because of the production and subject matter. I’m pretty sure Joe’s new material would have a more somber tone. Anyway, it’s still well worth a listen. Check out “Young & Restless” after the jump.

Zedd Remixes MAGIC!’s “Rude”: Listen

138ac6637c02e9ecb51b0049e93d793b Zedd Remixes MAGIC!’s “Rude”: Listen

Experiencing a bit of “Rude” fatigue? Fear not: “Break Free” hit-maker Zedd‘s gone and given new electronic life into the summer smash, due out officially on September 2.

Moments ago, the superstar producer unveiled his remix of MAGIC!‘s “Rude,” one of the songs that ruled the radio waves throughout Summer ’14. Replacing the reggae-rock vibes of the original with big House piano keys, scorching synthesizers and, of course, some searing beat breakdowns, Zedd gives the tune a major kick in the pants for the dance floor. Will the track get a second burst of energy on the dance charts with this remix? Sure sounds that way.

What do you think of Zedd’s MAGIC! makeover? Let us know in the comments below.

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.

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?

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.
