New Video from Beyonce – Party

Beyonce’s highly anticipated music video for her new single “Party” has finally been premiered on BET’s 106th & Park show. The Kanye West-produced track is the latest offering from the R&B/pop singer’s platinum selling album “4”. For the video, Beyonce’s song features the official remix with J Cole. The Roc Nation rapper is also present in the backyard fiesta visual, alongside Kelly Rowland and Solange. I love it. It’s a very simple clip but it fits the song perfectly. I think it captured the flow and the vibe of the song and, as usual, Beyonce looks stunning. What do you think?

Beyonce Gets 5 Soul Train Nods

Beyonce has been nominated in five categories at this year’s Soul Train Awards. The 30-year old R&B/pop singer is up for Record of the Year for “Best Thing I Never Had”, Best Dance Performance for “Run the World (Girls)”, Album of the Year for “4”, and Best Female R&B/Soul Artist. Congratulations Beyonce and good luck! The 2011 Soul Train Awards tapes on November 17 in Atlanta and will air on Centric and BET on November 27. I wonder if she’ll be able to rake them all up. If not, what do you think she’ll be taking home? I’m sure she’ll take at least one.

New Video from Rihanna – We Found Love

Rihanna has recently premiered the music video for her song “We Found Love”. The video was filmed in Belfast, Northern Ireland and follows the passionate and wild love story of the Barbadian R&B/pop singer and her video boyfriend, played by boxer-turned-model Dudley O’Shaughnessy. I wasn’t expecting this type of visual at all. I love a video with a great story and this one definitely had it. I think this is Rihanna’s best video to date. It’s powerful and realistic. I love the shock visuals and overall concept. Bravo to everyone who had a hand in making this video the way it is.

Jason Derulo and Leona Lewis on X Factor Programs

Jason Derulo and Leona Lewis both took their turns gracing the X Factor stage, just in different countries. Jason went to X Factor Australia where the R&B/pop singer performed his latest singles “It Girl” and “Don’t Wanna Go Home”. Vocals aside, I say he killed it. As for Leona, the British pop star went to X Factor Germany to perform her 2008 single “Run”. No, it’s not an old video, it really is a recent performance. She did a flawless job but I just don’t get why she decided to perform a 3-year old song. She’s just not giving her Aviici collaboration a chance!

New Songs from Jason Derulo – Pick Up the Pieces/Breathing

Jason Derulo has under two weeks until he releases his sophomore album “Future History”, due out on September 27th, but the pop singer is continuing to offer new promo singles via iTunes to keep up the hype for his upcoming record. Jason dropped two new tracks from the album recently, “Pick Up the Pieces” and “Breathing”. The first is a nice mid tempo drums-driven tune with a catchy hook. It’s a decent album track. As for the latter, I love it! I thought it was going to be a ballad from the title but it’s actually a chill out house record. I love the lyrics, the vibe and the production. I never knew he had it in him to do that type of song. Check them out.

New Video from Rihanna – Cheers

Rihanna has recently premiered the music video for her latest single “Cheers”. During her tour stop in Kensington Oval, Barbados on August 5, the 23-year old R&B singer filmed footage for this video. The visual features a lot of concert and backstage shots from her “Loud” tour, as well as a special appearance by Avril Lavigne. It’s a simple nod to Rihanna sampling the Canadian pop star’s hit “I’m With You” in the song. Also making brief appearances in the video are Cee-Lo Green, Kanye West and Jay-Z. In other Rihanna news, she just wrapped up the European leg of her tour and is prepping to kick it off in South America on September 17.

Swizz Beatz Pushing for Alicia Keys and Adele Duet

Swizz Beatz is quite intent on having his wife Alicia Keys record a duet with British pop/soul singer Adele. The rapper/producer recently told MTV “I just know that you know greatness when you see greatness, and teaming two greats up together, it makes history. And I don’t even have to produce the track; I just want it to happen. She can produce the track, somebody else can produce the track.” To be honest, I would want this to happen too. Those two very unique voices and musical styles – that will be a dream come true. I think I can die happy if this collaboration happens.

Destiny’s Child may be making an appearance

It looks like the famous female trio might just be reuniting for a special performance at the Glastonbury Music Festival. This is what a source had to say about the possibility of a Destiny’s Child reunion: “Beyoncé was over the moon and sorted them out with Access All Area passes and accommodation. From there, plans developed and the idea of a brief on-stage Sunday evening reunion was mooted. It’s still very much up in the air as no one wants Bey to feel she’s being upstaged. One idea is for the two girls to join her on stage towards the end of her set for a medley of their hits. But whatever happens, the three girls are getting back together at Glasto and planning on having an absolute ball...

Chris Brown just wants some solitude

The singer has apparently grown increasingly frustrated with how everyone seems to just hunt down occasions to criticize him and whishes that everyone would just leave him alone. This is what Chris Brown tweeted in one of his bursts of frustration: ”This will make things a whole lot easier. If you don’t like/support me then don’t listen to my music. Latching on to my every word and criticizing makes you look thirsty. I can’t even piss without somebody complaining. Imagine how I feel. A person should not have to apologize every second for living life!” Well was Chris Brown just living life when he decided to give Rihanna a new face? Actually, the man does have a reasonable point...

Lady GaGa is getting her own holiday

Unfortunately… or maybe fortunately, Lady GaGa is going to be celebrated only in Taiwan, at least for now. Apparently this is all happening because the singer is finally going on a promotional tour in Taiwain from the 1st to the 5th of July so they’ve decided to make the 3rd of July “Lady GaGa Day”. This is what Taiwanese mayor, Jason Hu, said on the matter: “We have spent a great deal of time and energy inviting Lady Gaga to visit Taichung and we are very pleased to see the success of our efforts…Therefore, we are determined to designate the day as ‘Lady GaGa Day.’ During the event, Lady Gaga might meet the media and I will represent our city in bestowing upon her the keys to the city...
