Watch out Katy Perry, Pitbull, etc., because Aloe Blacc is coming for you. The singer is setting the singles chart ablaze with “The Man,” which is heating up to be the first big hit of 2014. Meanwhile, the Frozen soundtrack is No. 1 again on the albums chart in what proved an icy week for sales. Those stories and more in this week’s SoundScanner – won’t you join us?
It’s that time once again. Another year has flown by, and we’re sitting here in New York City on a frosty winter eve taking stock of the year 2013 as it pertains to music videos. It was not only a year in which stars transformed into superstars (we’re looking at you, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus), but one where newcomers like Lorde, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were able to flip the script and dominate their seemingly unstoppable peers. So sit back and enjoy the ride as we count down VH1’s Top 40 Videos Of 2013!
Love makes sweet music! Many musicians can’t resist bringing their boos into the vocal booth for some sultry duets. Most recently we heard from John Mayer and Katy Perry on “Who You Love” (A.K.A. Russell Brand‘s least favorite song). Earlier this year Ciara heralded her couple-dom with Future with “Where You Go,” and although she doesn’t actually sing a note on the track (thank god), Kanye West did tap Kim Kardashian to appear in his video for “Bound2” a few weeks back. In honor of all the coupling going on in the music biz, we’ve decided to take a look back at the most notable real-life couple collaborations in music!
