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! 😀

Jay-Z and Kanye West Take A Joy Ride In Their Video For ‘Otis’…

The Otis Redding-sampled single serves as the next release lifted from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s album ‘Watch the Throne’. The accompanied music video is cool, feel-good natured and is quite a stripped-back video compared to their previous graphic-filled visuals.

The track itself isn’t really my thing but I love the simplicity of the video, allowing their endearing personalities to glow; plus you could even strongly sense the brotherly-love between the two rappers, as they act like two care-free, down to earth guys purely having fun, enjoying life, and success!

See Jay and Kanye in action in the ‘Otis’ video below…


Katy Perry Is Out Of This World In ‘E.T.’ Video…

Katy Perry’s latest video for her single ‘E.T.’ featuring Kanye West finally lands on earth for all to be amazed – her fourth No. 1 single on Billboard Hot 100 off of her Teenage Dream album. I imagined that this Floria Sigismondi-directed video was going to be epic after hearing the excellently-produced track, and gladly, it didn’t disappoint.

The singer created her very own mini E.T. movie that perfectly reflected the lyrics of the song. Although I could sense what the visual was going to be like and the effects it would entail after checking out the video stills, this didn’t reduce the impact it had from my first official viewing – the graphics and fantasy-like imagery were just as captivating as I expected it would be, only more of course!

The whole track altogether surely has abducted my heart … I love 🙂 Check out the supernatural video behind the awesome and well deserved no1 single…


Kanye West Drops His Flash New Video For ‘All of the Lights’ ft. Rihanna (and erm, Kid Cudi)…

Kanye West has recently debuted his dazzling new video for ‘All of the Lights’, his latest single taken from his platinum-certified album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy– this is the only video that I’ve watched where I have found myself continuously blinking thereafter……

The Hype Williams-directed video displays colourful flashing lyrics on screen with varying arty effects and designs, clearly emphasising the song’s message. I also loved how near the end of the vid, artists’ names flashed on screen crediting all those who made some contribution to the track. I do love this track and video…A LOT…but after watching the whole screen flash its different colours and the video ended, I could honestly still see the lights flashing before my eyes for a while after, so I guess they’ve succeeded in making us see all of the lights! -though I don’t think anyone was focusing on all those lights when Rihanna popped up on screen…

Watching the video has definitely made me appreciate and love this tune even more than I did before. I’ve not really been a massive fan of Kanye’s releases for a while (sorry) but this one has certainly won back my heart 🙂 I Love. !


Drake/Lil Wayne VS. Kanye West/Jay-Z

Drake recently announced that he is planning a joint album with Lil Wayne.

In an interview with radio DJ Tim Westwood, the ‘Best I Ever Had’ rapper said, “We still got to do that album. I heard some other guys are coming out with an album, too. There’s two other rappers that are coming out with an album together. … I don’t know where they got that idea but …” – I think we all know the “two other rappers” he’s referring to here!

He continued, “I just caught wind of it through the grapevine, that there’s some other album coming out with two guys rapping on it too.”

Hmmm, so how will Drake and Lil Wayne’s joint project rival against Jay-Z and Kanye West’s upcoming Watch the Throne? …

For now though, here’s the lead single ‘H.A.M’ from Jay-Z’s and Kanye’s collaborative LP.


‘Pretty Girl’ Keri Hilson, and Kanye West ‘Rock’ to the Remix !

I know I’ve already featured Keri’s new single ‘Pretty Girl Rock’, but because I love it so much I thought I’d also put up the remix featuring Kanye West! Well you must admit he is well suited to this track, you know, a song about loving yourself – the whole conceited and egotistical nature of the number is so……well……Kanye ! I totally love it all the same. He never fails to add that little extra spice to a track like he did with Beyonce’s Ego (another song that was a certain reflection of himself!) Check out the ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ remix below 🙂 …
