Tove Lo’s “Timebomb”: Idolator Premiere

c7f49c281dcf0102016ed6583286e262 Tove Lo’s “Timebomb”: Idolator Premiere

Tove Lo is about to explode — in more ways than one.

Ever since we first heard “Habits (Stay High),” the lead track off of her fantastic Truth Serum EP released back in early March, we already knew that the Swedish singer-songwriter was about to burst in a big way on the pop scene.

Following the debut of her trippy visual for “Not On Drugs,” Tove is keeping the pop goodness coming ahead of the release of her forthcoming debut LP, Queen Of The Clouds, out on September 30.

And today, we’re bringing you one massive smash of an album track: “Timebomb,” available now if you pre-order the album.

Penned alongside Swede pop legends including Robyn hit-maker Klas Ahlund and Alexander Kronlund (Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys), the surging ode to a fleeting relationship is something of a cross between Robyn’s “Be Mine!” and Lady Gaga at her most arena-sized anthem-iest, including “The Edge Of Glory” and “Gypsy.”

It’s a truly massive production, lifting up to dizzying heights above a heart-racing drum pulse before that monster of a chorus: “We’re not forever, you’re not the one/You and I, we’re a ti-i-ime BOMB! BOMB! BOMB!” she shouts above crashing noise and piano chords.

“The passion in the beginning is always gonna be the best part of it,” Tove explained to us about the track — and we have to agree. This song truly is the best thing ever.

Listen to “Timebomb” up top, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Chris Brown’s ‘X’: Album Review

56430d54de2adc3e7a3202632beac5d8 Chris Brown’s ‘X’: Album ReviewI swear to God I’m moving on,” Chris Brown sings in the title track of his sixth album X (out today, September 16). He has insisted as much since he announced X early last year. Brown’s voice floats above a funky bass line and romantic strings on the LP’s first single “Fine China,” bringing to mind Michael Jackson in the early, more innocent days of his solo career. It’s his best impression of the King of Pop yet. However, the hook – “It’s alright, I’m not dangerous” – feels like a somewhat calculated answer to the questions Brown is still facing regarding the 2009 Rihanna incident: What has he learned since then? How does he intend to change? How will he deal with critics?

Brown has released three lackluster albums since that time (Graffiti, F.A.M.E. and Fortune), where he doubled down on both garish Eurohouse beats and his aggression during their most petulant moments. X‘s enduring hit, the Ty Dolla $ign-written “Loyal” is a more finessed example of how the singer’s outlook on women would become horribly retrograde. (Lil Wayne and Tyga join him in flashing money to steal girls from other men, only they all sound offended once they’re the ones left behind.) Despite what “Loyal” hinted, though, X is actually an uneven, though still welcome attempt showing that the troubled Brown wants to change.

X can do without the songs that try hardest to sell Brown as a bonafide star. He shadows R. Kelly as an R&B Lothario-in-training during “Drown In It,” though the song’s bedroom-as-ocean conceit bombs when his mentor calls himself not a merman, but “a male mermaid.” (The preceding track, “Songs on 12 Play,” actually has Brown and Trey Songz weaving in references to R. Kelly’s 1993 debut – a far better attempt at showcasing Kelly’s genius than his own cameo.) Brown also tries to regain crowd control in club-minded songs like “Came to Do” and “Body Shots,” though it’s tough to ignore how tired he seems of such neon-lit settings. They, like “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” could actually use some Ariana Grande.

Such hollow moments, lumped right into the middle of X, threaten to drown out Brown’s worthwhile efforts to win back the public’s trust. Fourth track “New Flame” shines because of how he and grown men Usher and Rick Ross melt into puddles just thinking about love in this club. Songs that address Brown’s uglier reputation are tougher to like, though they still feel useful. “Do Better” is about feeling paralyzed by self-hatred, despite Brandy bursting in to make it sound as if Brown still has a fighting chance for survival. In the stark “Autumn Leaves” he confesses of feeling “safer in your violence,” only for an outraged Kendrick Lamar to size him up: “When the bright cameras are still cramming in your face and it provoke / you to act mannish, just stay planted, because you reaping what you sow.”

X can feel messy, especially after the Diplo-produced title track, which opens the album. Brown’s voice appears in between club sirens and elastic rave drops, growing frantic as he deals with a betraying ex entering the picture. His voice snaps one moment (“I swear to God I’m moving on!”), sounds despairing the next (“Yiii-e-iiii-e-ikes, I’ve been with the wrong cro-ow-ow-ow-wd”) and then darts around as nimbly as his body typically moves on the dance floor. It all lends to a well-executed club banger that feels simultaneously like a private moment – that, and a reminder of how a nightclub can be a place where drama brews, brawls break out and, if he’s not careful, he can get tangled in it all.

X isn’t likely to grant Brown full-on redemption, but at least — and at long last — he sounds willing to work for it.

Idolator Score: 2.5/5

You could grate cheese on Usher‘s six-pack, so it’s not exactly surprising to discover that he’s the fittest man in popular music. The R&B superstar demonstrated his superior athletic ability on today’s (September 15) episode of The Ellen Show by taking on (and conquering) the demanding American Ninja Warrior obstacle course in the studio’s parking lot.

The 35-year-old, who is currently promoting his upcoming The UR Experience tour, demolished the course like a veteran Navy Seal — jumping over objects, climbing walls and hanging off railings like a professional. Usher is still putting the finishing touches on his eighth studio album, which still has no official release date. See the crooner’s athletic side after the jump.

Nicki Minaj Plays August Alsina’s Pressed Girlfriend In Their Cheesy “No Love (Remix)” Video: Watch

3c2c9b8a95cb6863139d2590b39ebf43 Nicki Minaj Plays August Alsina’s Pressed Girlfriend In Their Cheesy “No Love (Remix)” Video: Watch

From Usher‘s “She Came To Give It To You” to Beyonce‘s (officially) unreleased “***Flawless” remix, Nicki Minaj is everywhere right now. When you throw top 10 hits “Anaconda” and girl-power collaboration “Bang Bang” into the mix, it’s a pretty safe to assume that the 31-year-old never sleeps or is a cyborg sent from the future to improve the state of urban radio.

The extremely-busy rap diva’s latest high-profile feature is on August Alsina‘s “No Love (Remix)”. She lends him a verse and appears in the cheesy video as his girlfriend. Nicki discovers that her man is playing around but soon puts him in his place while rocking a suitably seductive outfit. The crooner eventually comes to his senses and pays her the attention she deserves. Watch the cliche-packed visual after the jump.

Tinashe Teases Debut LP ‘Aquarius’ With “Feels Like Vegas”: Listen To The Slinky Bedroom Anthem

57646b8d8ec6f5565615f5a3d473c1e3 Tinashe Teases Debut LP ‘Aquarius’ With “Feels Like Vegas”: Listen To The Slinky Bedroom Anthem

Tinashe is yet to put a foot wrong with debut LP Aquarius (due October 7). The rising R&B diva scored a well-deserved commercial breakthrough stoner anthem “2 On” earlier this year before channeling Janet Jackson on sublime slow jam “Pretend”. She continues to impress with “Feels Like Vegas” — a sexy bedroom romp that never feels sleazy or forced.

Produced by Norwegian duo Stargate (who are currently experiencing something of a revival thanks to Iggy Azalea‘s “Black Widow”), the slinky gem stays true to the 21-year-old’s signature brand of languid R&B. “Flashing lights, I let you love me because I can tell that you want me,” she purrs over lush synths. “Just you and I. Feels like Vegas don’t it?” Listen after the jump.

Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” Gets Remixed By RAC: Listen To His Spooky Overhaul

c501ffc376be7857a66b0d604e15442c Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” Gets Remixed By RAC: Listen To His Spooky Overhaul

Katy Perry has gone above and beyond when it comes to “This Is How We Do” remixes. The chart-conquering diva first served up a mind-stretching overhaul featuring side-piece RiFF RAFF before unleashing a twisted trap version courtesy of Brillz. They were both great in their own weird and wonderful way but it looks like she saved the best for last.

The Harper’s Bazaar cover girl turns to RAC for the latest “This Is How We Do” remix and the Portuguese-born/Portland-based DJ transforms it into a spooky synth-adventure that mixes tinny hip-hop beats with his trademark retro-synths. The sparse, fuzzy soundscape is exciting new territory for Katy’s voice and somehow suits the upbeat pop song perfectly. Listen after the jump.

84b78f675f3196b44eef499d7fb5b949 The Boobs Are Back! Nicki Minaj Sexes Up Instagram (Again) With Raunchy Paris Party Pics

Its been a big weekend for Nicki Minaj. The “Anaconda” diva dropped by Beyonce and Jay Z‘s On The Run tour stop in Paris to perform “***Flawless” and is also rumored to have filmed the song’s much-anticipated visual while she was in town. (The 31-year-old definitely filmed a video for something). It only makes sense that the busy femcee would want to let off some steam by hitting up a couple of fashion shows and after-parties.

We all know that Nicki is no shrinking violet, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that she rocked an outfit that (really) highlighted her famous curves to Alexander Wang‘s party and then shared the raunchiest snaps on Instagram. The rap heavyweight merrily exposed her boobs to partygoers and looked like she was having a great old time. See more pics of her Paris party antics after the jump.

Robin Thicke Admits Fake “Blurred Lines” Songwriting Credit & Drug Problem In Outrageous Court Deposition

47015e40645c5ac82951df998a2d7e5d Robin Thicke Admits Fake “Blurred Lines” Songwriting Credit & Drug Problem In Outrageous Court Deposition

Robin Thicke needs to hire a PR team to rehabilitate his image stat. If the commercial and critical failure of misguided (and frankly creepy) Paula LP wasn’t bad enough, the crooner reveals he lied to media outlets about co-writing “Blurred Lines”  in court documents which have just been made public. He also admits to an ongoing battle with drug and alcohol abuse.

The revelations were made during the course of legal proceedings Marvin Gaye‘s children brought against Robin and producer Pharrell Williams for copyright infringement. In short, they claim that “Blurred Lines” rips off their father’s 1977 classic R&B hit  “Got To Give It Up”. As such, the famous duo were deposed to establish the creative process behind the song.

This is where it gets really nuts. The 37-year-old says he played no part in penning the 2013 summer smash despite having a songwriting credit. “I wanted to be more involved than I actually was by the time, nine months later, it became a huge hit… so I started kind of convincing myself that I was a little more part of it than I was.” He finally comes clean and admits: “The reality is, is that Pharrell had the beat and he wrote almost every single part of the song.” That statement is in stark contrast to the process he described in detail to several media outlets. His explanation for lying? Drug and alcohol abuse.

As for the producer? He corroborates Robin’s testimony, saying: “This is what happens every day in our industry. You know, people are made to look like they have much more authorship in the situation than they actually do. So that’s where the embellishment comes in.” However, Pharrell credits his (non-)collaborator for the song’s success. “It’s the white man singing soulfully and we, unfortunately, in this country don’t get enough — we don’t get to hear that as often, so we get excited by it when the mainstream gives that a shot.”

Do you feel differently about “Blurred Lines” now? Let us know in the comments below.

Erasure’s ‘The Violet Flame’: Stream The Full Album

3df087eeac866167e38360d05a6270da Erasure’s ‘The Violet Flame’: Stream The Full Album

Erasure is back at it once again.

Following the release of last year’s holiday-themed Snow Globe, the prolific electronic duo has returned this year with their sixteenth (!) studio album The Violet Flame due out on September 22, helmed by British hit-maker, Richard X.

After we premiered the tracklisting and vibrant cover art for the upcoming LP right here on Idolator, the troupe debuted the album’s surging lead single “Elevation,” an uplifting slice of majestic synth-pop.

And, as with “Elevation,” you can expectedly equally bright and flashy things across the entirety of the record: “This time, because we wrote on the synths, Vince came up with some dance riffs. I just sang along with those, so it was much more immediate. We also did the writing in Miami rather than New York, so it was much warmer,” Andy Bell tells USA Today where the album can be exclusively streamed in full.

Listen to the stream at USA Today, and check out the full tracklisting after the jump.

The Violet Flame
1. Dead Of Night
2. Elevation
3. Reason
4. Promises
5. Be The One
6. Sacred
7. Under The Wave
8. Smoke And Mirrors
9. Paradise
10. Stayed A Little Late
