Years And Years Sing Blu Cantrell’s “Breathe”: Listen To The Dazzling Cover

f35df4701a7f2db518d5c04d58479dc6 Years And Years Sing Blu Cantrell’s “Breathe”: Listen To The Dazzling Cover

Happy Throwback Thursday (#TBT), everyone! As we take this time to reminisce about the glimmering pop days of yore, take a moment to bliss out to Years and Years‘ cover of Blu Cantrell and Sean Paul’s infectious 2003 collabo, “Breathe.”

Hailing from London, this R&B-pop trio completely transformed the track, as frontman Olly Alexander’s soulful vocals gently float over the slightly eerie bass-laden melody, giving this song a new, more poignant dimension. Not to mention, they also have some great tracks of their own: From R&B electronic-infused jams like “Take Shelter”  to synth-y bops like “Real”, it seems as though these guys are slowly becoming one of the most exciting acts to watch this year.

Catch Years and Years on tour with Sam Smith this fall, but in the meantime, listen to their cover below, and give the original tune a spin as well.

What did you think of the Years and Years cover? Let us know in the comment section below

c72765fb35065d7c1d74a5dfafdae445 Becky Hill’s “Caution To The Wind” Video: Watch The (Seriously Existential) Animated Clip

Enchanting everyone in sight with her smokey, languid vocals on Rudimental’s “Powerless”, UK’s latest pop darling Becky Hill recently released her Two Inch Punch-produced debut single “Caution To The Wind,” which now has a video to go along with it.

Directed by Fred Rowson, the mastermind behind the visual for DVBBS, Borgeous and Tinie Tempah’s collab club track “Tsunami,”  the “Caution To The Wind” clip explores the passing of time.  It’s beautifully animated and follows the progression of life, whether it is through people’s age or the landscape around us. More importantly, however, it not-so-subtly let’s us all know that, regardless of its progression, the world will still keep on spinning and spinning…. and spinning.

Watch the clip up top, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

Nick Jonas Returns With Slick R&B Club Banger “Chains”: Listen

79ea155c7ef052ecf9d918ec9b6e8409 Nick Jonas Returns With Slick R&B Club Banger “Chains”: Listen

Nick Jonas is ready to make the leap from boy band icon to fully-fledged adult pop star with new single “Chains”. While this isn’t the 21-year-old’s first solo project, it’s definitely his most convincing. The fitness fanatic follows the Justin Timberlake formula for career transformation a little too closely but everyone has to start somewhere.

Produced by Jason Evigan (his credits include Demi Lovato‘s “Heart Attack” and David Guetta‘s new hit “Lovers On The Sun”), “Chains” is a mid-tempo R&B anthem that showcases Nick’s smooth vocal. “You got me in chains for your love but I wouldn’t change,” sings the former teen star over chunky beats before the now standard breakdown. It’s a step in the right direction but no “Like I Love You”.

Complex has an exclusive stream of “Chains” on their website. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Miley Cyrus Skips Porn, Boobs & Nudity Again, Posts Colorful Pics Of Her New Hair & Nails: 8 Photos

0b57bcf7dac6d735986fda957f561c01 Miley Cyrus Skips Porn, Boobs & Nudity Again, Posts Colorful Pics Of Her New Hair & Nails: 8 Photos

If Miley Cyrus is looking like 14 packets of Skittles exploded all over her lately, it’s because the MTV Video Music Awards nominee has gone color crazy with her hair and nails. Yes, according to her latest barrage of Instagram snaps, she’s moved on from covering up that tongue-wagging mug of hers to attaching bright braids to her mop and painting her nails with vibrant polish.

All that said, strangely Miley has only shared one topless photo in the past week. I’m a bit worried that she’s losing focus, but at least we’ve all got these pics and those ones and this set and this other gallery of nude, shirtless Cyrus to default to until she gets it together. Sigh.

Flip through the above gallery and give your eyes a trippy blast of color, Miley-style.

Mariah Carey Busts Out The Big Guns On The ‘Hercules’ Red Carpet: 9 Pics

76180b644df88f77f19d5d7009d6654b Mariah Carey Busts Out The Big Guns On The ‘Hercules’ Red Carpet: 9 Pics

Mariah Carey‘s iconically-titled new LP Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse has inexplicably tanked on the Billboard 200 but the legendary diva doesn’t look too unhappy. She beamed at the premiere of Hercules in Los Angeles last night (July 23) in a form-fitting black dress that showcased her killer curves and sexy pins.

Mimi had better get used to being in the spotlight. The ageless diva is rumored to be going on tour later this year and needs to increase her visibility if she’s going to revive her latest opus. Speaking of which, where is the video for “You Don’t Know What To Do”? (A visual for “Thirsty” would be nice while she’s at it). At least Mariah’s fashion game is on point.

Do you love Mimi’s look? Let us know in the comments below.

Lily Allen’s “As Long As I’ve Got You” Video: Watch The Glastonbury 2014 Tribute

5e0c4e8d73bdfb4abec2b5141eea538d Lily Allen’s “As Long As I’ve Got You” Video: Watch The Glastonbury 2014 Tribute

Ah, Glastonbury — the mud, the music, the one festival that sells out a year in advance. Simply said, it’s pretty much the mecca of all music gatherings. However, as seen in Lily Allen‘s latest video for “As Long As I’ve Got You,” this festival is not only the gig of every artist’s wet dreams, but also a place that holds a certain element of nostalgia for the British songstress. 

As it turns out, Lily is a fervent Glasto-goer, showing baby photos of her with the Allen fam and slowly progressing to images of her teenage years at the festival in the beginning of the video. The clip then switches to the Sheezus singer going on a lovely stroll through 2014′s Glastonbury grounds, laughing, dancing, twirling, even taking a few snaps to remember the glorious experience in between. 

“Glastonbury has always been a huge part of my life, and I wanted to make this video there to celebrate the spirit of the festival and also to show how my life has changed since the last time I played there,” Lily noted when speaking about the clip. “From being there as a child with my Dad, to my wilder days in the 2000s, to this year when I was back on the Pyramid stage, and taking my husband and own daughters along!”

Keep the tradition going, Lily. Maybe one day we could even join you! Watch the tribute up top, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

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, 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.
