Rickstar Unveils His Funky Video For His Classy New Single ‘Hanging On (Let Go)’!

Following his previous single ‘Beat Of My Heart‘, Rickstar, a 21 year old singer/songwriter from London drops another smashing number entitled ‘Hanging On (Let Go)’, taken from his terrific EP Vintage Soul, Modern Mind. The track itself adopts the nature of the 60s, modernised to create a funky fresh sound. The combination of the famous Motown flavour with a modern touch forms this brilliantly easygoing song, with addictive vocals and an infectious melody – a track you are bound to catch yourself subconsciously humming down the street!

The accompanied captivating music video is equally epic; the visual is quirky yet slick and stylish, and Rickstar is undeniably an entertaining trendsetter – he is most certainly able to keep us hanging on to his every word with a hit as gripping as this!

Rihanna Releases Her Official Video for ‘You Da One’!…

Rihanna finally unveils her sassy new video for her latest single ‘You Da One’, taken from her ‘Talk That Talk’ album. This is definitely Da One I’ve been waiting for as I am craaaazy about this traaack! She has hardly switched things up much in comparison to her previous videos  – apart from the blonde transformation of course – but what more did we really expect??

 I am probably bias seeing as I am completely in love with the quirky number, but I do appreciate the execution of the video, the artistic lyrical graphics and effects, the whole creative aspect of the visual – it’s powerful in that it clearly presents the song’s message in the simplest way, and it enriches the track and sits perfectly with the nature of the song.

Chris Brown Heats Up this Wintery Season With His Official Video for ‘Strip’…

Well Chris Brown seems to have dropped his wintery-themed official video for his latest single ‘Strip’ (ft. Kevin McCall) at the perfect time this ‘breezy’ season. Only CB could consider stripping down in midwinter! But let’s face it – this chilled yet frisky visual certainly helps to heat up the chilly days and our frosty bones.

The ‘She Ain’t You’ singer proves to be having a whole lotta harmless fun, acting his cheeky breezy self, along with lavish ladies he and rapper McCall would surely love to reflect the track’s title. Taken from his upcoming fifth album ‘Fortune’, ‘Strip’ is not necessarily an original number, or visual, but it’s an addictive one all the same!

Lady Gaga MARRYS THE NIGHT In Her Longest Music Video Ever Made…

Now the thing is…I really do like Lady Gaga. She has a brilliant voice, huge talent and a wonderful personality, but this music video for her latest single ‘Marry The Night‘ has left my heart disputing with my head; my heart believes that she’s totally awesome……but my head believes that she is officially deranged.

When I noticed that I was about to watch a 14 minute-long video, I was optimistically intrigued, but that was honestly precisely 13:51mins of complete nonsense!!! I guess I could never deny the fact that she is totally living up to her stage name!

I understand that the visual is representative of her past, but it was just uninteresting to view, it had no life, a bore to watch, and I have no words to offer on the final scene…

We all know that the unique superstar is outrageous/wacky/eccentric/plus any other nutty-related terms, but this was on a whole new Gaga level. The only part that just about sparked my interest was the dance routine – but overall, to put it plainly…I just didn’t like it.

Rihanna Displays Mixed Emotions In ‘We Found Love’ Video…

Rihanna releases her emotionally-lead video for her latest single ‘We Found Love’. Listening to the song alone, I didn’t actually imagine it having such an intense storyline; it doesn’t necessarily compliment the party element of the song but then it certainly does reflect its lyrics, and I fully appreciate that the visual dissects the track to draw focus towards the words of the song.

Throughout the video, we follow Rihanna’s destructive love-life; could this video quite possibly be a reflection of her relationship with a certain Mr Brown? …given that the male actor is quite a replicate of him in his blonde-haired days. Well whatever the influences, this is a great video with massive impact nonetheless.

Ri-Ri might find love in a hopeless place, but she is far from hopeless at finding herself at the top of the charts! Check out the video for the number one single below!


Beyonce Exhibits Her Baby Bump In Her New Vid For Countdown…

In light of the countdown to the birth of her first born, Beyonce stylishly displays that baby bump in the music video for her latest single ‘Countdown’. The ‘1+1’ singer adopts a cute, yet bold attitude as she proves that she can still rock it while she’s up the duff! This video didn’t make me go “WOW” exactly, as it is that kind of energetic, sexy, quirky visual that we would all expect from the singer, but can’t deny it’s most definitely a rapid and multi-coloured video that is full of fun and excitement. 🙂

Jessie J Empowers All in her Music Video for ‘Who You Are’…

I have personally been waiting a very long time for this one, and I am so pleased to finally hear that Jessie J has released a music video for her empowering single ‘Who You Are’! This may sound a little bias seeing as this song is my most liked track off her amazing album, but in my opinion this is by far one of her best videos yet…

The result of this visual is everything that I imagined and HOPED it to be – a stripped back Jessie as opposed to the usual dolled up, quirky persona (which I LOVE…but only in smaller doses :-)). This video is so fitting for the profound lyrics and overall authentic nature of the song.

Isn’t it just wonderful to see the purer side to our much loved songstress for a change? 🙂


[Music Video] Nicki Minaj’s ‘Fly’ Video Finally Lands…

The long-awaited music video for Nicki Minaj’s single ‘Fly’ featuring Rihanna, has finally landed. The video is set on a dramatic plane crash scene where Nicki exhibits her many eccentric outfits, alongside her bestie Ri-Ri. So here’s the thing…I do understand the concept of the video, emphasising the view that the ladies can face any tragic situation, yet still maintain their image and have fight left in them, but I just wasn’t as impressed as I expected to be considering the time it took for the videos official release – plus the amount of millions that was most likely spent on it!

The song is so great in my opinion and was one of the tracks on the rapper’s album ‘Pink Friday’ where the repeat button was constantly in motion, but my view of the visual just doesn’t seem to reflect how amazing the song really is. So as you can imagine, this is not a video I would choose to play more than once, but I’ll of course continue to totally adore the track nonetheless! 🙂


Rihanna’s ‘Cheers’ Video Has Finally Arrived…I’ll ‘Drink To That’!

CHEERS! To the release of Rihanna’s new music video for her single ‘Cheers (Drink To That)‘ – I shall definitely raise a glass to this one! We get up close and personal with the ‘Man Down’ singer as the visual combines clips of her performances during her ‘Loud’ tour, behind the scene clips and footage of her personal moments representing her fun times, and the happy stages in her life thus far. I will never tire of this hot tune as I totally appreciate the feel-good, fun-filled nature, and the chilled out video which appropriately accompanies it.

Check out the new video below, and…

Happy weekend everyone! 😀


Beyonce Gets Steamy In Her Music Video for ‘1+1’…

Beyonce may not know much about a lot of things taking into account the lyrics to her stunning ballad ‘1+1’, but she certainly knows just how to sexually exhibit her bodily assets whenever she gets the chance! The ‘Run The World’ singer shimmers – literally – in her sensually-lead new video, which is in no doubt exceedingly seductive, yet tasteful some may say. I feel that she may be disguising the view of ‘selling sex’ with the symmetrical art, which I believe makes the video that more powerful and interesting to watch – I guess.

Beyonce brings to life that passion that is established within the track; the video is effective in that it simply represents the message in the song and is the kind of visual you would most probably expect for a song of this nature.

Feel the passion as you view the video below…
