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!

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!
The fourth episode of Daft Punk‘ s ‘Random Access Memories: The Collaborators’ video series features Pharrell.

A few days ago, we brought you the Roisin Murphy ‘Look Around You‘ mini mix, and now we’ve got some exciting news on forthcoming collaborations which comes from an interview Roisin recently did with Swedish magazine Zero.
The most devoted among you may remember a little Roisin track called ‘Leviathan (Do It Yourself),’ which was apparently produced in 2009 with Kid Gloves and premiered in one of her DJ sets in Rome back in 2010. Well it turns out that it’s finally ready for release as a collaboration with Freeform Five aka DJ Anu Pillai.
We’ve also got the Italian EP with Luca C and Brigante to look forward to. On it Roisin will interpret classic songs by divas like Mina and Patty Prao.
“Though we will mix in electronics as well, so it will be completely different versions.Both of the two women fascinate me. They were so ahead of their time, in different ways. An artist at the same time is known as a blonde bombshell, but still have full creative control and dare to take risks with the music, and also with such a strong emotional charge, provides a heady feeling”
If that’s not enough for you, she will also be featured on a song on the DJ collective Hot Natured‘s upcoming album. This track has an Ace of Base feel and was played in Ibiza last year. Lastly, there is also more material planned with Solomun but she did not reveal any additional details.
