Taylor Swift (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) – Bad Blood
Oops! She did it again. Taylor Swift just about broke the internet when she debuted her video for the 1989 single “Bad Blood” at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards. In just under 24 hours, the video broke the Vevo record hitting 20.1 million views in 24 hours. The Joseph Kahn directed clip features an all-star, female cast and the track got a rap redo with Kendrick Lamar leading the song with rap verses strung together by Swift’s album version chorus. Watch the video above (if you haven’t already) and share your thoughts on it with me in the comments below.
Steve Jobs (Official Movie Trailer)
The first teaser trailer for the Steve Jobs movie landed online this week. And while the trailer shows little of the movie itself, it already looks far better than the Ashton Kutcher starring film about the Apple Founder. Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels and Seth Rogan join Michael Fassbender (as Jobs) in in this version, out in October. Are you going to see this film in theaters or just wait for it to come out on Apple TV?
Beyonce & Nicki Minaj – Feeling Good
The Queen of the “surprise drop” has done it again. This week, in efforts to force fans to save the dying streaming service TIDAL, Beyoncé & Nicki Minaj released an unexpected new video for the track “Feeling Myself.” The video was released exclusively for TIDAL subscribers, but fans leaked it around the net hours after its release. Since then, the clip which shows the ladies acting a fool and being silly, has been taken down due to copyright claims, but you can still see a trailer for it below. Perhaps, once TIDAL officially calls it quits, this video will resurface in full.
Phases – I’m In Love With My Life
When guitarist James Valentine first introduced me to his side project JJAMZ a couple of years ago, I was an instant fan of the female-fronted indie rock pop on the band’s debut album. Now, after signing with a major label and rebranding as Phases, the band delivers their first catchy new single. Valentine had to bow out due to his… other “side project” called Maroon 5 (ever heard of them?), but judging by the new sound and rad video things seem promising for these up and comers. Watch the awesome video for their first single “I’m In Love With My Life” below.
