Sarah Harding, The Final Girls Aloud Member To Go Solo, Finally Went Solo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZAQH0TWvQA With each and every one of Girls Aloud's greatest bangers, there was always a distinct sense that the whole production could spin out into sheer, uncontrollable chaos at any second. "Sexy! No No No..."? "Biology"? "Every Now And Then"? All completely…


"No Sleeep": Janet Jackson Kicks Off Her Comeback In The Bedroom

Stay awake: The return of Janet has officially begun. It's been a long time coming, to say the least: Seven years after her last original studio album (2008's Discipline) and six years after her last single ("Make Me" — deeply underrated! — and don't forget "Nothing," either), Miss…


"E·MO·TION": Carly Rae Jepsen Demands Your Full Attention, Babe

I really, really couldn't be bothered whether the general public is onboard with the Carly Raedemption — because I really, really like it. E·MO·TION is (thankfully) shaping up to be every bit as good as Carly Rae Jepsen's sparkling (and deeply underappreciated) 2012 record Kiss, from her…


"Dance Like We're Making Love": Ciara Gets Sexy With Dr. Luke For 'Jackie' Single Number Two

Ladies and gentlemen, the body party is once again in session. Ciara, B.M.F., is finally done terrorizing the ballerina community with her offensive "I Bet" pointe shoe work and getting the gays gagging with her "I Bet" remixes to move on to her second Jackie single, the Dr. Luke-helmed "Dance…


"Infinity": Mariah Carey's New Single Is Basically A Mariah Carey Shade GIF In Song Form

The good news is that a little under one year, one reshuffled management team, one new label deal and one upcoming Vegas residency later, Mariah Carey is keeping it hashtag very on brand with her brand new single, "Infinity," a biting moment of retro middle finger whatever. The bad? Nick Cannon…


Dance, Sex, Funk: Slow Knights Heat Things Up With 'Living In A Dark World'

Back in 2013, Scissor Sisters' own Del Marquis enlisted a troupe of talented singer-songwriters — including Bright Light Bright Light, Xavier and Bridget Barkan — to form a NYC-based collective called Slow Knights and released a record called Cosmos. Two years later, the group's come together for…


A New JoJo Song Called "Far From Heaven" Fell From The Clouds, Thank The Lord Above

At this point, we should all be well aware of the fact that no musical comeback is more crucial than that of Queen JoJo. Except for Queen Janet. But aside from Miss Jackson, it's all about The Return Of Jo. Any mere morsel of new music that might somehow drop down from the pearly gates and bless…


Ciara Reveals 'Jackie' Album Tracklist, Blesses Us With "I Bet" Remixes Featuring All New Vocals

Ciara is not playing around this era. Unlike the frequent stops and starts of 2013's criminally underrated Ciara, it's full steam ahead toward the release of CiCi's sixth studio album Jackie (out May 4). Last night, the ballerina community's #1 enemy unveiled the tracklist for her forthcoming…


"American Oxygen": Rihanna Gets Patriotic With Her Latest Offering From 'R8'

Real talk: What the actual phuck is #R8 shaping up to be? We've watched as Snapchat's latest inductee Rihanna has slowly shifted from artsy-fartsy acoustic folk-pop songstress on "FourFiveSeconds" with Kanye West and Paul McCartney to returning to the full-on #Unapologetic strip clubz and dolla…


"Only You": Miss A Make A Confident K-Pop Comeback

It's amazing what some quality K-Pop can do to revitalize your spirit. I've written about Miss A in the past: Three years ago, the troupe first popped up on my radar (on my ray-duh) with their (still) incredible "Touch," along with the accompanying mini-album. And ever since, they've been…


"Sparks": Listen To A Preview Of Hilary Duff's Wonderful, Whistlin' Return To Synth-Pop

Turn the lights down low and kiss me: Our beloved Dignity diva has returned. There was a moment there when Disney princess-turned-certifiable MILF Hilary Duff threatened to veer permanently into vanilla guitar-pop territory with her sweetly inoffensive, shoe commercial-friendly "Chasing The Sun"…


MNEK's 'Small Talk' EP: Required Listening Of The Week

If you've not been formally acquainted by now, MNEK is a pop savant. A rhythm wunderkind. A young, bright beatmaster. The UK multihyphenate has written and produced Top 10 hits for nearly five years, from The Saturdays' "All Fired Up" to Little Mix's "Wings" to Duke Dumont's "Need U 100%" to…
