One Direction’s “You & I” Video: Watch

b83fa9237e42c6f6a532d8436703d54e One Direction’s “You & I” Video: Watch

After teasing the clip all week, One Direction have premiered the video for “You & I.” It begins with Niall Horan taking a stroll out on a pier — a perfectly suitable image for the ballad — but then he morphs into Liam Payne, whose face then morphs into Harry Styles‘ and so on. We can just see a squealing Directioner having trouble deciding which member of 1D is her favorite and having that a-ha moment, “Wait, what if they were all combined into one guy!” and that’s probably exactly how the video was pitched to the suits.

It’s a cool idea, giving the illusion that it’s a single-take visual, while obviously bringing to mind the iconic closing scene in Michael Jackson‘s “Black Or White.” Be sure to stick around after the morphs to see the guys engage in the usual horseplay and throw in some totally uninspired parkour on the pier.

Kiesza’s “Hideaway” Gets A Video Parody By BBC Radio 1′s Greg James: Watch

66c9d279da07388a556b24ea3fef178b Kiesza’s “Hideaway” Gets A Video Parody By BBC Radio 1′s Greg James: Watch

Canadian singer Kiesza is on course to crash into the top spot on the UK chart this weekend with her ’90s house throwback “Hideaway.” Sure, that gives her certain bragging rights…but the true sign that you’ve made it as a pop star is when your music video gets parodied. You may have already caught the impressive tribute by 11-year-old British girl Sapphire. Now get ready to feast your eyes on 28-year-old BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James in full-on Kiesza drag — skintight jeans, suspenders and, oh yes, flame-red hair — doing a shot-for-shot remake of the “Hideaway” video on the streets of London.

Catch the hilarious take on Kiesza’s breakout hit “Hideaway” above, and then learn more about the Canadian singer via our Popping Up interview with her below.

7 Questions With Kodaline: Breakthrough Hit “All I Want”, Touring America & Irish Bands

6ec7c0d4da18cf5252e2bc97453904a1 7 Questions With Kodaline: Breakthrough Hit “All I Want”, Touring America & Irish Bands

From U2 to The Cranberries, Ireland has a long history of producing great bands. The latest act to add to that impressive list is Dublin-based quartet Kodaline. They broke big in Europe last year with critically acclaimed debut LP In A Perfect World and landed a string of radio hits with emotional rock anthems like “High Hopes” and “Love Like This”.

The band was recently stateside to promote new single “All I Want” and dropped by the Idolator studio for a quick chat between gigs. The guys opened up about their wackiest tour experiences, talked about those flattering comparisons to Coldplay and waxed lyrical about the state of American beer. (In short, they think our Guinness stinks). Watch up top.

Do you love Kodaline? Agree with their beer assessment? Want to walk down the aisle to one of their love songs? Let us know the answer to one or more of these questions in the comments below.

Taylor Swift Makes A Surprise Appearance At A Fan’s Bridal Shower: Watch The Adorable Video

a9b5ee9cf06ce0ba8e0542d2f5addb50 Taylor Swift Makes A Surprise Appearance At A Fan’s Bridal Shower: Watch The Adorable Video

No wonder Taylor Swift‘s mega-loyal fans do wacky things like buy physical copies of her albums and legally download her songs. The Red diva has got their back. Take long-time Swiftie Gena Gabrielle. She invited the country-pop superstar to her bridal shower on a whim, and was visibly amazed when Tay actually turned up.

There’s so much to love about this. For starters, Taylor actually reads her fan-mail. (At least, sometimes). She also whipped up a batch of her own cookies for the bride-to-be and good-naturedly mingled with her friends and family at the Ohio shindig. While filming the event makes it seem somewhat calculated, who really cares when Gena quite obviously had the best day of her life? Watch up top.

Do you admire Tay’s dedication to her fans? Let us know in the comments below.

Coldplay Take Us Behind The Scenes Of Their Blockbuster “Magic” Video: Idolator Premiere

1e42c77c5ba70b5eec6f08080b232fa8 Coldplay Take Us Behind The Scenes Of Their Blockbuster “Magic” Video: Idolator Premiere

Coldplay really upped the visual ante with their Jonas Åkerlund-directed “Magic” video. The circus-themed opus tells the story of a glamorous 1920s-era magician (brought to life by Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang), who finds herself in the middle of an emotional tug-of-war between her abusive husband and charming assistant — both played with great flair by Chris Martin.

The British superstars now invites you behind the scenes of their blockbuster visual with a must-see ‘making of’ documentary. It’s fascinating to watch the video come together and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to see Coldplay’s plucky frontman suspended on wires or spinning on a wheel while the star of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon pretends to throw knives at him? Check it out up top.

Is “Magic” the band’s best video? Let us know in the comments below.

Sky Ferreira’s “I Blame Myself”: Watch The Stylish Video & A Making-Of Clip

5ec1001e87bf77caa72a61e45193ce2e Sky Ferreira’s “I Blame Myself”: Watch The Stylish Video & A Making Of Clip

Sky Ferreira has premiered the stylish video for “I Blame Myself,” with some help from online fashion retailer SSENSE, who styled her for the shoot (and all her getups are available for purchase for any Sky stans and/or budding fashion icons out there). Ferreira owns the camera for this Compton-based video — so many hair flips! Dance breakdowns! — and ends up approaching the same “wimpy pop star coming off as totally badass” vibe that Michael Jackson channeled in “Bad.” Needless to say, it is great.

The visual was shot earlier this month by Grant Singer, who has directed Ferreira’s last six videos. Watch it over at SSENSE, and check out the behind-the-scenes-footage below.

And for more about this song and her album, check out our recent interview with Sky.

John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped-Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

683e7b05dfcbbd10b3b4ead7871934e4 John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

It’s time to welcome John Mayer to the ever-expanding Bey Hive. “The best thing about Beyonce? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw,” the singer-songwriter raved in a tweet on Saturday (April 12), before unveiling his live cover of the Ryan Tedder-penned hit at a gig in Adelaide, Australia last night.

Katy Perry‘s ex stripped “XO” back to its raw, emotional core — performing the song with only his guitar and harmonica for accompaniment. And it survives the genre switch exceedingly well. Regardless of how you feel about John’s uber-sincere schtick, his folk ballad interpretation reminds you that Bey’s love song has an unusually melancholy underbelly. Watch up top.

Do you like John Mayer’s cover? Let us know in the comments below.

Guy Sebastian Performs A Spine-Tingling Acoustic Version Of Breakthrough Hit “Battle Scars”: Watch

Guy Sebastian dropped by the Idolator studio earlier this year to chat about his new EDM-infused single “Like A Drum”, which continues to gain momentum at radio. The Australian superstar — he has racked up six number one hits at home — also invited us to an exclusive set at Nightbird Studios in Los Angeles where he performed acoustic versions of his new track and breakthrough Lupe Fiasco collaboration “Battle Scars”.

The 32-year-old belted out the latter R&B ballad at the piano, showcasing his powerful pipes and innate musicality. “Battle Scars” became Guy’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012 and eventually sold more than one million copies. In our interview, he revealed that he is considering putting a reworked version of the smash on his US debut LP. After hearing this, you can’t help but think it would be an extraordinarily good idea. Watch up top.

Ashanti Looks Back On The Massive Success Of Debut Single “Foolish”: Idolator Exclusive

d5b03e1be4c7d9738bd531bd07d97440 Ashanti Looks Back On The Massive Success Of Debut Single “Foolish”: Idolator Exclusive

Ashanti recently dropped by the Idolator studio to chat about Braveheart, the diva’s first LP in six years, as well as her journey as an independent artist but also reminisced about the massive success of 2002 debut solo single “Foolish”. The timeless R&B anthem spent what felt like an eternity at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned the then 22-year-old a well-deserved Grammy nomination.

“Looking back, even now, it’s like oh my gosh. I literally was in two or three different states in one day,” Ashanti remembers. “The fact that we broke history in Def Jam records and on Billboard, I think it was like 11 weeks consecutive. It was an amazing experience.” And the song’s legacy still lives on. “The DJ puts ‘Foolish’ on and it causes mayhem 12 years later, [which] is phenomenal.”

Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Tyga Get Weird In “Senile” Video: Watch

2ec657cfbd4b29ab82b55b5647610f6a Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Tyga Get Weird In “Senile” Video: Watch

Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Tyga‘s ominous “Senile” has gotten a colorful, slightly creepy video directed by Colin Tilley. The behind-the-scenes photos gave us an indication that the video for the Rise Of An Empire cut would be odd, but I’m not sure we were prepared for Shake Weights and the wackest version of The Worm ever put on tape.

Each rapper gets their own little setting in the video: for Tyga, it’s a blacklit room with masked dancers and a hookah, while Nicki is on a playground and Weezy spends his time with some backwards Swedish-looking family. The visual premiered on BET’s 106 & Park and isn’t online yet, so for now watch the TV rip up top.
