Colbie Caillat’s Palms Rise To The Universe In Her New “Hold On” Video

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.

The Thirst Is Real! The All-Time Best Music Videos Set In The Desert

View Photo Gallery

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”).

Deap Vally’s “Baby I Call Hell” Is The New Mob Wives Theme Song

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!

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!

Rebecca Black Moves Past “Friday” With “Saturday”

rebecca black saturday

Rebecca Black became a viral megastar three years ago when her absurd music video for “Friday” made us laugh–and made us cry when that catchy chorus wouldn’t get out of our heads! No one would have blamed the teenaged wannabe pop star if she had decided to spend the rest of her life under a rock in absolute embarrassment, but she didn’t! Rebecca Black is back with a new song called “Saturday” that might actually be more than catchy gimmick tune. It might be a decent pop song.

The Fray Channel The ’80s Classic Road House In Their New Video For “Love Don’t Die”

The Fray grew to be one of the most successful piano-pop acts of the post-Coldplay era thanks to the undeniable catchiness and emotional resonance of songs like “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life.” However, on their new song “Love Don’t Die,” the first single off their upcoming 2014 release Helios, there are no traces of piano to be found on the record whatsoever. And you know what? We love it.

Kanye West Seriously Overestimates The American Housewife’s Appetite For Motorcycle Sex With His “Bound2″ Video

Kanye West‘s largely antagonistic approach to getting the word out about his incredible new album, Yeezus, took a weird turn over the last few days. After largely ignoring the American media since his album’s June release, he appeared on the debut episode of inflammatory author Bret Easton Ellis’ new podcast on Monday and used the opportunity to espouse his guiding principle of being (and we quote) “super dedicated to awesomeness, and making things better.” Those are qualities the world could definitely use more of, which is why we were totally thrown off guard when we saw the video for “Bound2,” which is neither awesome nor something anyone would describe as “making things better.”
