“Are we about to witness a tennis match?” I leaned over to say to my friend at the Echoplex in Los Angeles on Thursday, as we anticipated Little Boots to launch her new tour. The second opening band, Avan Lava walked onto the stage dressed all in white mesh tops, pants, shorts, skirts- you name it, and Adidas track jackets. I was intrigued but not ready for what an amazing show we were in for. Continue reading
“Am I weird to dance alone late at night?”
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!
It’s exciting the Pet Shop Boys are still ahead of the curve after all these years, and their 12th studio album Electric is shaping up a real winner.
The boys enlisted the lovely Stuart Price for the entire album, whom we’ve wanted to produce another dance record for ages. Loving the twinkling at the end and Giorgio Morodor-esque bass line throughout. Watch ‘Axis’ below.
She walks, she talks & she dances. Tiny Dancer intrigues us with her soon to be released debut EP ‘Who Am I?’ featuring the title track and a real stunner - ‘Skies To Blue.’ A perfect pop tune from beginning to end. Can she get any cuter?
Congrats to collaborator/songwriter Wayne Wilkins this bubbly gem! There’s hints of Niki & The Dove on ‘Skies..,’ although we can completely picture it on Britney Spears’ forthcoming studio album. Lucky for Tiny, it’s hers. Looking forward to more from her in 2013.
Demi Lovato‘s ‘Heart Attack’ was given the remix treatment by our very own Belanger! Since it’s release it’s already hit the 100k view mark on Vevo and Youtube. So excited! Listen below.
The ‘Heart Attack’ remix package comes jam packed with great reworks by the lovely White Sea, Alias, Manhattan Clique & Deejay Theory. Listen to them all right here. We must add that we are truly amazed at how wonderful Hollywood Records & co are doing to promote forthcoming album DEMI and it’s lead single. Continue reading
