Janelle Monae has just released the video for her impossibly good collaboration with Erykah Badu aka Badoula Oblongata, and as you might expect it’s damn near perfection. Ultra sleek black and white visuals and attitude for days from the stunning ladies, we’re obsessed! Seriously, How amazing do they look? What a pair!
It’s so great Janelle puts so much effort into the visuals, as well as the music. She’s the total package, and these days those artists are few and far between!
Mariah has teamed up with Miguel on her forthcoming single ‘#Beautiful’, due for release on May 6th. A few days ago, she shared a fresh sounding teaser video, which looks wise gives me serious ‘Butterfly’ era vibes. And tonight she unveiled the single cover.
In other Mariah news, she renewed her wedding vows with Nick Cannon at Disneyland. The Cinderella themed occasion marked their fifth wedding anniversary… and she shared the experience on Vine. Hashtags and Vines…she’s so current!
I’m a day late and a dollar short on posting this one, but it’s simply too good not to get some love from Hard Candy! Janelle Monae teams up with her pal Erykah Badu on ‘Q.U.E.E.N,’ the first single from her forthcoming sophomore album. The pair have offered up a track that’s impossibly funky!
A video is on the way, and you can watch a teaser for it below. As always, Janelle looks flawless!
Boris Dlugosch and Roisin Murphy‘s collaboration, ‘Look Around You,‘ has finally been released! The single features remixes by Raik, Chopstick and Johnjon, andMaxi Soundsystem as well as an instrumental version. The full set is currently only available on Beatport, but you can preview the Maxxi Soundsystem remix above.
The official video for the track has also just been released. Much to my delight Roisin shared it on her Facebook page with this message..
This appears to be the official video for Look Around You. Not sure I understand it. Do you?
LNTG continues to impress the hell out of us with his productions, the latest being one that lifts Janet Jackson’s ’All Nite (Don’t Stop)’ vocals. We think you’ll agree that it’s expertly done, and breathes new life into one of the best songs on the ‘Damita Jo’ album!
Evian has just released a teaser of their hilarious new commercial called “Baby and Me” which follows the same theme as “Roller Babies”, which went viral a few years ago. In the clip, people come face-to-face with baby versions of themselves and a dance off ensues!
Also, from mid-May you’ll be able to download the “Baby & Me” app and meet your baby self. You simply take a picture of yourself and the nifty facial recognition software will babify you!
