There’s nothing we love than a sweet collaboration between two musical souls and that’s what we got this morning on Big Morning Buzz Live. Host Nick Lachey joined forces with tonight’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee John Oates on a stripped down, “modern” cover of the Hall & Oates hit song, “Out of Touch.
After taking the lead on Avicii‘s hit single, “Wake Me Up,” Blacc is stepping out on this own in a big way. In the new music video for “The Man,” Aloe Blacc channels his inner-Marvin Gaye in a spirited video that captures the social discourse of the early ’70s. The You Oughta Know Artist sat down with VH1 in an exclusive interview to explain the powerful yet beautifully shot imagery in the video.
“This music video is an amalgamation of historic images that remind me of moments in time where there was struggle and triumph,” Blacc says of the video’s theme.
Music videos have always straddled the line between selling the music or selling sex. The love scenes in some music videos are so steamy, so scintillating and so sexy that we’re not sure if we’re watching a music video–or a sex tape! But which are the hottest sex scenes in music video history? Let’s just say it’s a battle between making love on the beach, in a bathtub and in a plain old hotel room bed…
Gavin DeGraw is one of the featured artists performing during VH1′s Super Bowl Blitz next week. Gavin’s concert from New Jersey’s Wellmont Theater on Saturday, February 1 will be broadcast live on VH1, where he’ll be performing songs from his brand new album, Make A Move. Speaking of which, we’re excited to premiere the brand new video for the album’s title track for you right now!
Jennifer Hudson continues to be a leader of the pack amongst her peers on the music scene, but with her latest video, we see clearly that she’s feeling great doing it! In her new video for “I Can’t Describe,” Hudson flaunts her “stuff” boldly and proudly for the world to see.
Colbie Caillat made her name writing and recording breezy, slightly crunchy, acoustic guitar-driven tunes like “Bubbly,” “Realize” and “Lucky.” Her work to date has been successful both on the commercial (6MM albums sold!) and critical (2 Grammy Awards!) fronts, but being a creative artist like she is, it seems like she’s ready for a change of pace when it comes to the work that she produces. Enter her new single “Hold On,” which sees Caillat exploring a slightly more electronic sound than she has in the past.
It might be cold outside but we’re done complaining. Instead, we’re heating things up with our favorite desert set music videos. The desert is about a clichéd a place as any to set a music video, and while the desert was super big in the videos of the 90s, it’s still favored for the cheesier, more epic videos of today (see: Britney Spears‘ “Work Bitch” AND “Not A Girl But Not Yet A Woman”).
Seeing as how the fourth season of Mob Wives has kicked off with both familiar faces and “new blood,” we figured what better way to get that message across than by introducing a kickass new theme song?! We were looking for music that was raw, gritty, and captured the New York vibe that is closely associated with our cast. Deap Vally’s “Baby I Call Hell” was the perfect track to drive our promo for the upcoming season – a stylized meeting of old versus new cast members. You know, a good ol’ fashioned rumble!
What haunts Eminem? According to the new music video for “The Monster,” Em is most afraid of himself. The music video starts with Eminem going through a therapy session with Rihanna dressed as his sexy shrink and follows the hip hop superstar as he goes through his most iconic moments–and tries to get away from them?
Stop the presses! All y’all news organizations who already printed your Top 10 Lists for 2013 need to go back and print an addendum, stat, because Beyoncé dropped an album out of the blue (Ivy!) overnight. Sure, a few weeks ago we (lightly) admonished King Bey for failing to release an album in 2013, but as of this morning, we BOW DOWN before King Bey and take everything back. Beyoncé’s self-titled Beyoncé is a game-changer not only because it broke every rule in the book about music marketing, but because it arrived complete with VIDEOS FOR EVERY SONG ON THE ALBUM!
