Jason Derulo Talks Dirty About His New LP, Breakthrough Hit & Snoop Collab: Idolator Interview

c3537a1ce5f0e6628959905046c17102 Jason Derulo Talks Dirty About His New LP, Breakthrough Hit & Snoop Collab: Idolator Interview

Jason Derulo is currently enjoying one of the biggest hits of his career with Wallpaper-produced bedroom anthem “Talk Dirty”. The explicit earworm boasts the catchiest hook of 2014, a small army of celebrity fans and major staying power on the charts. It’s still lodged at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and could grind its way even higher up the countdown.

The 24-year-old recently dropped by the Idolator studio to chat about his temperature-raising hit and similarly titled new album. Jason explained his new sexually-charged image and opened up about his next single — an equally catchy collaboration with Snoop Dogg called “Wiggle”. He also hints at an upcoming US tour, which is great news for thirsty fans. Watch up top.

Are you a fan of Jason’s sexy new sound? Let us know in the comments below.

Pharrell’s “Marilyn Monroe” Video: Watch

59c56082fa567e29d2f30c91670deec1 Pharrell’s “Marilyn Monroe” Video: Watch

Pharrell has dropped a video for G I R L opening track “Marilyn Monroe.” He sings, “I just want a different girl,” and in the video, he certainly gets his wish. It starts with Pharrell going in to embrace some beautiful goddess, only to see her vanish just before he wakes up from a dream — but then the remainder of the reality-based visual is more like a fantasy, as he’s surrounded by dozens of women dancing to the orchestral funk number in what basically amounts to an ode to the manic pixie dream girl.

There’s also an appearance from the purple-coiffed Kelly Osbourne, who is featured briefly on the track and has struck Pharrell with cupid’s arrow in the visual. Check it out up top.

Lily Allen Goes For Blood In Her Multi-Colored “Sheezus” Video: Watch

1b0b1f69fda04d997c3a4b5ef9409371 Lily Allen Goes For Blood In Her Multi Colored “Sheezus” Video: Watch

Lily Allen will ruffle some feathers with the title track of her awesomely-titled Sheezus LP. The spoken-word hip-hop/pop song is a rather biting commentary on the industry and her fellow divas. “Now wish me luck, I’m gonna need it,” she admits. “I’ll see you on the other side if I’m still breathing.” What is causing the Brit so much inner-turmoil?

Well, it could have something to do with the next verse of the song. “RiRi isn’t scared of Katy Perry’s roaring, Queen B’s going back to the drawing,” Lily quips before singing a certain Kiwi wunderkind’s praises. “Lorde smells blood, yeah she’s about to slay you.” It’s the next lyric that’s really controversial. “We’re all watching Gaga. LOL. Dying for the art, so really she’s a martyr,” she sings about the state of Mother Monster’s ARTPOP era.

Regardless of how you feel about Lily’s observations, you have to admire her honesty. This is a return to the fearlessness of her 2009 LP It’s Not Me, It’s You — a characteristic that has been sorely missing from Sheezus jams like “Air Balloon”. As for the video? It’s a multi-colored affair to evokes M.I.A.‘s visual approach. Watch up top.

Do you agree with Lily’s observations about the pop world? Let us know in the comments below.

Ricky Martin’s Sun-And-Sand Themed “Vida” Video Is A Blast From The Past: Watch

6ab7232280879cfb8a12da6ec7dbe44f Ricky Martin’s Sun And Sand Themed “Vida” Video Is A Blast From The Past: Watch

Ricky Martin shared a preview of his latest World Cup anthem “Vida” yesterday (April 21) but the finished product is even more of a blast from the past than expected. With the exception of a couple of grey hairs in the heartthrob’s expertly pruned beard, the Salaam Remi-produced party anthem and video (for that matter) is fairly interchangeable with anything the 42-year-old released at his late ’90s peak.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s something to be said for consistency and Ricky sure knows how to knock out a summery smash with generic Spanglish lyrics that probably sound pretty inspiring after a couple of Coronas. It’s just that the “Adrenalina” singer seems to be revisiting former glories (ie. “The Cup Of Life”) when he could just as easily have a hit with something more current. Maybe next time. Needless to say, he looks great in the video and the Brazilian scenery is pretty awesome. Watch up top.

Are you feeling “Vida” or is it time to retire the FIFA anthems? Have your say in the comments below.

Chromeo Performed Party Anthem “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” On ‘Jimmy Kimmel’: Watch

056b7dba1562b956fa7b316ef0452c58 Chromeo Performed Party Anthem “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” On ‘Jimmy Kimmel’: Watch

Fresh from two triumphant sets at Coachella, Canadian electro-wizards Chromeo rocked the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (April 21). The duo brought along their flashy keyboards, which rest upon female legs, and performed retro-pop anthem “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” as well as recent single “Come Alive”.

Dave 1 and P-Thugg always bring the party. The band’s slick ’80s synths, tongue-in-cheek showmanship and quirky props turned the Hollywood lot into a rollicking rave. “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” is still the catchiest example of the current early ’80s dance revival and promises great things for Chromeo’s fourth LP White Women, which drops May 12. Watch up top.

Martin Garrix Teams Up With Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike For “Tremors”: Watch The Gritty Video

2c12bb04ac5bfc47059ea580e12c4846 Martin Garrix Teams Up With Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike For “Tremors”: Watch The Gritty Video

Martin Garrix scored one of the most unexpected crossover dance hits in recent memory with “Animals”. The furious electro-house anthem clicked with clubbers and mainstream pop listeners alike, despite the absence of a topline or big-name featured artist. The Dutch DJ’s breakthrough hit is still climbing the Billboard Hot 100, while the video has racked up over 220 million views.

Needless to say, expectations are high for the 17-year-old’s follow-up. “Tremors”, a collaboration with Greek-Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, is another aggressive electro-instrumental with a killer drop that will, no doubt, sound truly epic in clubs. That probably explains the video’s simple approach. It combines footage of the DJs doing their thing with a scantily clad model prancing around. Watch up top.

Will “Tremors” crossover like “Animals”? Have your say in the comments below.

5 Questions With Rixton: Fun Facts, Recording Naked & Hooking Up With Scooter Braun

7a92f9628a9150d1b88f9740f97a06b2 5 Questions With Rixton: Fun Facts, Recording Naked & Hooking Up With Scooter Braun

Rixton has certainly come a long way since they first appeared on our radar last year with their spoof-tastic “Make Out” video. The British band took a more mature direction for debut single “Me And My Broken Heart” and immediately struck chart gold. The Benny Blanco-produced pop/rock anthem is already top 30 on iTunes and steadily climbing the Billboard Hot 100.

The rising stars dropped by the Idolator studio earlier this year to chat about their humble beginnings and future plans. Lewi, Jake, Charley and Danny opened up about being signed by Scooter Braun (he also manages Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Martin Garrix) and recording their debut album naked!

Alexa Goddard Arrives With “Marilyn”: Watch The Lyric Video For Her Electro-Pop Debut

951247a0ee47fc006f2ff4ba91db68fb Alexa Goddard Arrives With “Marilyn”: Watch The Lyric Video For Her Electro Pop Debut

Alexa Goddard doesn’t want to be normal, she informs us on her debut single. She wants to be someone, like Marilyn Monroe. Lofty aspirations, for sure, but Alexa isn’t some wide-eyed newbie who’s just starting to daydream about fame and excess and the glamorous life. The 23 year old has been at it for a few minutes now, having done time as a “YouTube sensation” and featured on songs by Trans Siberian Orchestra (with whom the singer toured several years back) and fellow British artist Wiley.

So here we are with “Marilyn,” Goddard’s first proper, major label single. It’s not going to revolutionize the pop scene in any way, shape or form — and in fact, the opening lyrics (“Let’s go down to Carnaby, get fucked up like we’re royalty”) veer a bit too close to the Shamelessly Borrowing From Lorde‘s “Royals” department. But all in all, “Marilyn” is a harmless pop track that might please the casual tween-aged radio listener…or soccer moms looking for a slab of edginess to spice up their afternoon.

Listen to Alexa Goddard’s debut single “Marilyn” above.

Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” Video Is Probably The Worst Thing You’ll Watch All Week

0bf33227bf2560d00b3bcb2d5cd4c118 Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” Video Is Probably The Worst Thing You’ll Watch All Week

“Oh, no — there’s dubstep?” Those were words muttered in our office — mind you, after a string of various other laments — upon watching Avril Lavigne‘s “Hello Kitty.” Apparently there’s a demand somewhere out there for yet another single and music video off the Canadian singer’s dearly departed, self-titled fifth album, so voila.

To be honest, I kind of shut down physically and emotionally after the first four seconds here. Has anyone reminded Avril that she’s nearly 30 lately? See if you fare any better by watching above, and keep this in mind: “Hello Kitty” took four people to write, including Chad Kroeger. Konichiwa, bitches.

Ricky Martin Teases World Cup Anthem “Vida”: Watch A Preview Of The Summery Video

60e5349d014fc6cd59af20ebb9b13ea3 Ricky Martin Teases World Cup Anthem “Vida”: Watch A Preview Of The Summery Video

The FIFA World Cup has been a happy hunting ground for Ricky Martin. His 1998 theme song “The Cup Of Life” introduced him to new fans around the globe and a subsequent performance of the song at the Grammys is credited with breaking him in America. No doubt, the Latin heartthrob is hoping to repeat that success with new single “Vida”.

Produced by Salaam Remi, the bilingual anthem is a percussion-heavy, celebration of the important things in life (romance, having fun, partying etc). It’s only fitting that then that the feel-good song get an equally uplifting video. From the thirty-second preview, we get a glimpse of beautiful people dancing on the beach and Ricky looking typically handsome in a tank top. Watch above.

Does Ricky have another hit on his hands? Have your say in the comments below.
