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?

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 Video from Chris Brown – Niggas in Paris

Chris Brown sports a werewolf mask and vampire fans in the “music video” for his recently released freestyle remix of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s latest single “Niggas in Paris”, where the R&B singer recruited the help of his “Kiss Kiss” collaborator T-Pain to do the auto tuned backup vocals. This re-recorded version of the “Watch the Throne” album track has been released by Chris as an early Halloween treat for his fans. And going with the Halloween spirit, Chris decided to pull out the 2-minute video with psychedelic lights, masks, fangs and a creepy orange sunset landscape. What do you think?

Beyonce Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Beyonce is featured on the cover of the November 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, which hits newsstands on October 25. The 30-year old R&B singer spoke about pregnancy and motherhood with the magazine, saying “It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother. Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.” Beyonce also talked about her relationship with hubby Jay-Z, saying “We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married. I admire his ability to inspire others. To me, Jay represents the American dream. Jay’s music has helped define our generation...

New Song from Chris Brown – Trumpet Lights

A new song called “Trumpet Lights” from Chris Brown has recently leaked online. The track was produced by Swizz Beatz, who has been a frequent collaborator with the R&B singer. The song is an explosive eclectic record with loads of horns, auto-tune and some hip hop swag from Chris. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea now that I think about it but the song still sounds pretty unfinished so there’s still room for improvement so I’m reserving final judgment until then. In any case, it all points out that “Trumpet Lights” comes from the recording sessions of Chris’ upcoming album “Fortune”. All we have to do now is wait to see if it will make the final cut.

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.

Rihanna Sex Tape

Rumors surfaced earlier this week that Hustler had acquired a sex tape featuring J Cole and Rihanna. It didn’t take long for the Barbadian R&B singer to deny the whole thing, taking to Twitter to say “We don’t believe U, U need more people…AND ofcourse an actual sextape! #slownewsday” At least she’s got a good sense of humor about the whole thing. She’s right though. Unless Hustler comes up with some proof that they do have a sex tape, it’s nothing but silly rumors spreading to have the media go crazy. What do you think? Do you think a Rihanna and J Cole sex tape exists?

Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to Preview Video at VMAs Pre-Show

Selena Gomez will be hosting this year’s VMA pre-show. During which, Nicki Minaj will show the world a special preview of the music video for “Fly”, her collaboration with Rihanna. In January, we got to see a teaser picture of the video shoot via the Barbadian R&B singer’s Twitter but it was the rapper’s “Super Bass” visual that ended up being dropped first. Now, it seems that “Fly” is coming right up. I’m sure the first look into the video will only add to the big night that Nicki will have as she’s nominated for three VMAs including Best Rap Video.
