After releasing her summer hit, Good For You, Selena Gomez is ready to drop her highly anticipated album, ‘Revival.’ Not only will this be her first LP under her Interscope records after leaving Disney’s Hollywood Records last year, this will be a ‘Revival’ of all sorts for Ms. Gomez.
By the looks of the album artwork, it all seems to be a rebirth as well because shawty is showed up in her birthday suit. We’re all for this! Do you, Sellie. We’re just wondering how the parents are going to feel? Ah, parents and their opinions. Let us know in the comments if you think it’s too much, or if you’re down for the cause!
Meghan Trainor has proven to be one of hottest new stars on the block. After her mega-mongous hit, ‘All About That Bass’ ruled the world summer ’14, many thought she’d disappear into the pop music blackhole where all the other one-hit-wonders sing for tips. Two bonafide hits later, Meghan is back … with a soulful leading man, John Legend, by her side.
In the video, Trainor makes googly eyes with the pop/R&B living Legend while they both get wet in the rain on a fire escape. Talk about dangerous! The song’s cool for the summer, but it’s definitely no ‘Bang Dem Sticks,’ Title’s clear standout track. Let’s pray she sends that to pop radio her fifth go-around. Also, can we talk about this being Meg’s FOURTH single. You know an artist has made it when they can get that far on one album with no flop
Lastly, no, you won’t see John’s back side in the video. They keep it classy. But feel free to click here for Johnny Boy’s goods.
Budding pop star, Alessia Cara is slowly making a name for herself in the music scene. She’s young, sweet, tinged with soul and a hint of lyrical realness. What do you do when you want to jumpstart your hustle? Cover a Taylor Swift song on BBC radio, duh!
You’ve got to admit it, Cara’s vocals could give Tay-Tay a run for her money. Thankfully, T approves. Hmm, will we see Cara and Swfit out to lunch soon? Swift’s clique has no limits.
Check out Cara’s debut single, ‘Here.’
Is today Sunday, because Kelly Clarkson just took a borderline-perfect trap song into a soulful hymn. Rihanna’s sassed up single, ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ is perfect for the club, but Kelly pulls off the perfect lounge cover in ‘
Bitch Y’all Better Have My Money.’ Added bonus, no cussing, so it’s perfect 4 da kidz. Check it out!
Rihanna. Pop queen. Chart-topping musician. Leader of the galaxy. We’ve all been waiting for #R8 and Rihanna has told us time and time again that we will get it when it’s ready. She’s beginning to sound like every Caribbean mom that hits you with a wooden spoon when you ask her when’s dinner ready for the fifth time. Who knows when she’ll drop this album. It could be tomorrow, it could be October [Rihanna-ween]. One thing’s for sure, the wait has been painful. Here are some of the side effects of a Rihanna-less life.
1. HungerIt’s been so long. We just want something sweet!
2. Anger Rih, where have you been? We need this album. The whole thing. All of it. Come through!
3. Loss of BreathSometimes it’s easy to forget to breathe when all you want is
American Oxygen on a full-length LP.
4. Indifference It’s whatever. It’s just music. It’s just an album. I’m over it, Rih. Forget you!
5. FearDid Rihanna see my mean tweets about me not caring? Or how about my incessant Instagram comments? I hope she doesn’t see them and drag me with an iconic clapback?
5. ThirstWe are thirsty. Replenish us, Robyn! This pop music drought is serious.
6. ConfusionAlright, girl. It’s been a minute. What’s going on? You don’t want my monies?
7. Hope + Faith. Haith.It’s gonna come. Some day. And that alone is good enough?
8. AssuranceWhenever it comes, it’s going to be AMAZING and outshine every insignificant flop star that put out music this decade.
Ms. Fenty would never put out a basic album. She needs to make sure it has zero flaws.
But can we flash forward to the booty shaking when we first listen?

I just came to a conclusion about Beyonce. Everyone’s saying she didn’t need to promote her album.
But truly, she really did.
*the pepsi deal*
*the lip-sync debacle*
*the live performance at the press conference*
*the destiny’s child super bowl reunion buzz*
*life is but a dream*
*H&M/standing on the sun*
*turnt on the dream’s album (yawn – his album, not the song)*
*part 2 (on the run)*
*the countless leaks of random info (that was usually false)*
Everyone was waiting for her to say something about music in 2013. But it all sounds like a heavily sly and intricate plan. Not your traditional press tour, but this could have been one of the most carefully strategized covert operations pop music has ever seen. The CIA can take some tips from this.
Meanwhile, Pepsi is like, “I paid for all this shit.”

Keke wants your la, la, la, la, la, love.
Keke Palmer has waned in and out of the spotlight since her debut in “Akeelah and the Bee,” alongside Forest Whittaker in 2006. Since then, she’s starred in Madea’s Family Reunion, completed a tenure at Nickelodeon with her own sitcom and TV movie along many other miscellaneous acting credits. She even dropped her first album when she was 13.
Now 20, it’s obvious she’s transitioning into womenhood, in her personal life and in the TV screen. After a buzz worthy role on VH1’s TLC film, “CrazySexyCool,” Palmer’s team has wasted no time in introducing some new Keke fans to her beautiful voice , while also treating her old fans with her usual sweet vocals.
Like her most recent work on the 2012 self-titled EP, Keke Palmer, Palmer’s performance rides through “Work Like You Love Me” like summer water at an amusement park. Sometimes she trickles in, other times her vocals come gushing out. She gives and she takes. You can sway to this song. You can twerk to the song. You can even woo a potential lover with this song. Imagine. Sit still. Envision your crush across the room and just give them those bedroom eyes (bedroom cuddling eyes of course, you ain’t easy). Now reel them in. This song is a reeler. Good job, Keke.
“Work Like You Love Me” is available on iTunes now. Buy it like you love me.
