Yo, this video is hilariously dope! Saw it a few days ago, and I know it’s not normally what I post, but I’m full of surprises.
Ester Dean is legit and this beat goes hard! Peep the video below for her track, “Bam Bam.”
Let me let y’all in on a little secret: I was totally listening to Calvin Harris before he became mainstream here in the states. Yup, I was obsessed with I Created Disco and I kept trying to persuade folks that he was going to blow up big internationally. Well, I was right. The Scottish producer/DJ seems to be an international sensation now and everyone and their momma is teaming up with him on tracks.
Most of the collaborations are pretty good (although I really dislike the song with Ne-Yo), but I’m really loving the latest collaboration with Florence Welch (leading lady of Florence & The Machine) on an awesome track called “Sweet Nothing.”
“Sweet Nothing” has been out for quite some time, but a few days ago the official music video was released. I know, I know, I’m late on this one. But, it’s only been four days since the release, so…don’t be mad at me; better late than never. Cliche at best, but very true.
Other die-hard Calvin Harris fans have probably already seen the video, but if you haven’t, then you should watch it below. Seriously, watch it. It’s good for a few reasons:
I didn’t even bother watching the Grammy Awards this year. Not quite sure where I was, but most likely it involved either blogging or playing MW3. You know I’m a gamer, so I surely stay on my Ps3 quite a bit.
Usually I go track down the performances I might have missed, but this year I just didn’t care. I just read the usual controversies on Bossip surrounding Chris Brown, Rihanna, and folks still not liking him. None of that really phases me because I like Chris Brown, and I know some inside scoop on the reality of their relationship. Like I said, my brother (dancer/choreographer Jamile McGee from SYTYCD Season 1) has spent a lot of time hanging out with Chris Brown and showing him dance moves. So after partying with him and hanging out with his crew, you know eventually that dreaded Rihanna situation comes up.
I’m not one to dish out dirt unless you ask me in person, so I’m keeping what I know to myself. As far as I’m concerned, I still like Chris Brown. I may not listen to his music all the time (usually off listening to electronica,) but I definitely will say that I like his new music video for his dance track “Turn Up the Music.”
I’m basically used to a lot of R&B and hip-hop artists attempting to do dance tracks, so at this point it’s expected. It’s becoming trendy. But not everyone track will actually get me moving, but “Turn Up the Music” isn’t bad. It’s not the best (I’m a dance music & house junkie, so I can sometimes be particular,) but I think Breezy did a pretty good job. Not only does the song get you moving, but the music video is very cool. It must have been a lot of fun filming it, and the choreography is pretty nice.
Every time I see dancers in music videos, I always ask my brother if he knows any of them. And as usual, he can name most of the dancers in the videos because he has worked with them before or is friends with them. So I haven’t gotten a chance to find out the scoop of who did the choreography (usually Rich & Tone Talauega,) but I think it all came together very nice for the vibe of the song.
Peep the visuals below for Chris Brown’s latest single “Turn Up the Music,” and be sure (if you’re a big fan of Breezy) to get his new album Fortune when it drops on March 16th.

Last week I wrote a post about Kelly Rowland and her uber sexy video “Lay It On Me.” She’s been doing her thing a lot lately and she isn’t shy when it comes to talking about getting down to business in bedroom, or anywhere else. We all know that little miss Rihanna is a freak(she got in trouble for groping female strippers last weekend) and she isn’t ashamed to admit it, but I never would have thought precious Kelly Rowland was going to be taking over the music scene with such tantalizing and provocative lyrics.
If a man can sing about sex and all the things he is going to do to a woman (ah, men and their egos, gotta love it), then it’s perfectly okay for a woman to sing about it as well. Some people think the direction she is going is sort of raunchy, but it’s not that bad. I will admit that “Lay It On Me” was filled with a lot of sexual innuendos, but at least she tamed it down for new video “Down For Whatever.” She has a thing for being naked, but at least she covers it up with flashing strobe lights. I’m a totally straight female, but I will say that Miss Rowland does have a nice body on her. I mean damn, can I get her trainers number? She has got the type of body that could be a fitspiration for other women trying to lose weight; she’s skinny, but toned and not anorexic looking.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Kelly Rowland more so than a Beyonce groupie, so I’m all for her doing her thing in the dance music scene. A lot of people used to always make fun of me in high school and call me “white” for listening to dance music and artists like David Guetta, but now that major international producers such as Guetta have teamed up with R&B and hip-hop artists, it’s cool to like dance music. SMH at how trendy people can be, but I digress. Miss Rowland is good at singing on catchy dance tracks and her new video for her hot single “Down For Whatever” reminds me how fun dance music is. It just makes you want to get up, find some strobe lights, wear avant-garde outfits, and seduce a man while wearing neon clothing. What more can you ask for, this video is a flirtatious and vibrant set of visuals that go perfect with Miss Rowland singing about being totally “Down For Whatever,” even if he wants to do it on the floor. LOL I love it!
Check out the video below. The outfits are pretty avant-garde and I especially like the one with the chains on the face. The video is still sexy, but she doesn’t really turn up the heat until a black light turns on and she seduces yet another handsome man. I will say whoever does the casting for her videos has great taste in picky devilishly delicious eye candy. Lol. But I will say it’s not as provocative as the last video, so don’t be afraid to push play.
