For our #ThrowbackThursday today we are going Upside Down, one of her 18 US Nº1 hits.

Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias
El Perdón

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Enrique Iglesias and Nicky Jam have released their new music video for El Perdón via the 2015 YouTube Music Awards. Directed by Jonathan Craven and Darren Craig, the urban visuals take us into the streets of South America, the land of passion.

The duet holds the Nº1 spot on the Billboard’s Hot Latin Tracks Chart, and Enrique has broken his own record for “Most Number Ones” on the respective chart.

Everybody is going crazy for this track, especially after the song went viral when Brazilian soccer players Neymar and Dani Alves with the Futbol Club Barcelona, posted a video of them singing along to the tune. Iglesias was quick to repost the images of the singing soccer stars up on his social media pages.

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Usher hits the studio again, this time with 18 year old Martin Garrix, best known for his 2013 hit track Animals. The cute duo have collaborated for an awesome new summer jam Don’t Look Down.

The song is taken from Martin’s upcoming debut album ‘+X’ which is expected to be released later this year, although an official date has not yet been confirmed.

The newly released video was launched via the 2015 YouTube Music Awards and features a sneaky appearance by actor Balthazar Getty.

Video director Petros, takes us through the adventures of working pool-side in the steamy summer months. It really is a fun little production, unpredictable and complete with dancing on water and sea horse floaties that come to life!

Jason Derulo – Want To Want Me

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Jason Derulo just released Want To Want Me, his latest single to date with a steamy video to go with it. This was no ordinary song release though, it was debuted in a rather interesting way.

“I wanted to find a new unique way to launch my video,” Jason stated in a press release.

“I know my fans are tapped into social networking so what better way to launch my video for Want To Want Me than through one of the fastest rising social networking apps, Tinder. I see this app as the wave of the future. I know my fans will swipe right.’’

It was a good move on his behalf, as he is now getting tonnes of media buzz reporting about how he was the first to ever think of releasing a video this way. Damn it… now we wish we had the app (even though we’re not looking for a date…)!

Charli XCX – Famous

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Charli XCX was another huge name to release new material for the 2015 YouTube Music Awards which were presented and uploaded yesterday to YouTube in a lengthy playlist. Her addition to the huge melting pot of talent was a creepy music video for her song Famous. Charli teamed up with Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame for a truly terrifying, darkly comic visual.

The video is hard to sanely describe, a trippy social media take of the underworld in a nutshell… we think. It’s a seriously bewildering production to say the least, and leaves us with just one nagging question. What just happened?

To watch the video in Creation 5, just tap here.

Charli was one of the breakout artists of 2014, and earned her YouTube Music Award on the strength of music videos for Sucker singles Boom Clap, Break the Rules and her collaboration with Iggy Azalea for Fancy.

Ed Sheeran & Rudimental – Bloodstream

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Ed Sheeran and Rudiemntal premiered a cinematic new video for Bloodstream, specially for the 2015 YouTube Music Awards which were presented yesterday (March 23). The song features the English four-membered band Rudimental, who seem to be collaborating with all the greats lately.

The gripping music video, directed by Emil Nava, follows the Goodfellas actor Ray Liotta as he plays a drunken, washed-up frontman of fictional hair-metal group Black Glove. He appears to have it all—money, lots of awards, fame, big house and women—but he’s still miserable and lonely. He tries to drown his pain with alcohol and lots of sex, but it’s not enough…

We’ve gotta say, Ed Sheeran is really going from good to great with each new release, and to think it all started with a YouTube upload.

The 2015 YouTube Music Awards are presented below in full. You’ll find a ‘behind the scenes’ clip in this playlist, in which you can see the making of Bloodstream.

Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon

By | Music | No Comments

It’s crazy to think that all this time Ariana Grande has enjoyed pop super stardom she has never been an actual guest on a talk show, only a music performer. Thank you Jimmy Fallon for making this happen!

The two of them, who are always up to something hilarious and talented when they get together, executed a damn near perfect impersonation of the Titanic singer, Celine Dion on last Friday’s episode (March 20).

With Jimmy Fallon acting as her duet partner, the two gave a hilarious performance of “Beauty and the Beast.” If you’re short of time, the hilariousness begins at around the 1 minute mark.

CHIC ft Nile Rodgers – I’ll Be There

By | Music, Music Videos | No Comments

Nile Rodgers chose the vernal equinox (March 20) to premiere his new music video for the first new Chic single in 23 years – I’ll Be There. The timing of the release with the equinox was to signify the rebirth of the Chic Organisation. The single is the first cut to be lifted from their forthcoming album It’s About Time – the first Chic album since 1992’s Chic-ism. The album is due for release later this year and could feature collaborations with Miley Cyrus, Sir Elton John and Janelle Monae.

The idea for the album came to being in 2010 when Rodgers found a box of tapes with unfinished Chic material featuring vocals from the late Edwards and Luther Vandross, among others. After listening to it all it gave Rodgers the inspiration to finish the material. However, a few months later he learned he had prostrate cancer – putting the album’s theme of ‘time’ into sharp perspective.

Now, cancer-free, Rodgers said: “I’ve always had a lot to say, but it’s always worked best when I say it through music. So when I thought about where I was at this point in my life, all I kept thinking about was time.”

I’ll Be There is a collaboration with house duo The Martinez Brothers – it’s a classic disco-funk sound, utilizing a four-on-the-floor groove, soulful harmonies and Rodgers’ amazing rhythm guitar.

The song is a tribute to late Chic founder Bernard Edwards, who passed away back in 1996. “When I found my partner Bernard’s body in the room, I said, ‘Now I can be there for you in death the way you were there for me in life’,” Rodgers recently told Digital Spy.

The Inez & Vindooh-directed music video features supermodel Karlie Kloss and some wonderful vintage footage of Chic performing on Soul Train.
