Robyn's 'Ever Again' Video Is a Triumph

Want to know how to tell if someone's a real star? Give them a mic stand and see what they do with it...or to it, for that matter. Queen of Swede-Pop™ Robyn's signature video style is, for the most part, an intensely intimate, tightly choreographed affair. What comes to mind first? Her one-take,…


Robyn Honey Video

'Honey' Video: Robyn Keeps Dancing, But Not on Her Own

Honey is one of my favorite albums of the year. If I get around to doing a "Best Albums of 2018" list - which I should do, even though the Blogger's List (and the blogger himself) feels so, so ancient at this point - then Honey will wind up in my Top 10. Easily. I get that the album doesn't have…


Rosalia Bagdad Video

'Bagdad': Rosalía Quite Literally Cries Herself a River

"For all those who were heartbroken and drowned in their sorrow." Rosalía is, without a doubt, one of my favorite discoveries of 2018. I haven't written anything about her until now on MuuMuse, but I did hop in a car with her as she made her way from her record label to a meeting at YouTube…


Kylie Minogue Musics Too Sad Without You

'Music's Too Sad Without You': The Marvelous Melancholy of Kylie Minogue

Silence is all I can listen to now... The Golden era just keeps on truckin'. However, as opposed to delivering yet another glittery, cowboy boot stompin', homosexual line dance-ready burst of energy, Kylie Minogue's opted to bring down the BPM (REFERENCE) with one of the album's most melancholy…

Bebe Rexha I'm A Mess Music Video

'I'm A Mess': Bebe Rexha Is at Her Best When She's a Mess

As an early adopter Rexhar (I first wrote about her back in early 2014, and we had our first chat later that summer), it's been quite something for me to watch Bebe Rexha's career shape-shift over a half decade or so. From songwriting queen - best known for Eminem and Rihanna's "The Monster," plus…


Mabel Ring Ring Jax Jones Rich The Kid

'Ring Ring': Jax Jones, Mabel & Rich The Kid Lose Cell Service (And Patience) on the Dance Floor

Jax Jones is one of the most consistent providers of quality dance-pop in the game right now. His dance floor-friendly anthems blend together seamlessly, all sharing a certain signature DNA without being lazy carbon copies, and the features are always purely flame emojis: from "House Work" with…


Lia Clark QMT

Brazilian Drag Superstar Lia Clark Pays Tribute to The Legendary Miss Britney Spears

Brazil, Britney and drag queens: I don't need much more in this world, honestly. Whilst we wait for B-Girl to kick off her Piece Of Me: I Swear To God Y'All This Is Definitely It The Last Run Limited Engagement Summer World Tour and finish recording her Big Secret, there's this to tide us over as…


Diplo Pabllo Vittar Entao Vai

'Entao Vai' Video: Pabllo Vittar Makes Out With Diplo (And She'll Come For Your Man Soon, Too)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVDyowAzBrU One would think getting dry-humped by Lucas Lucco for a whole day of filming would be enough to satisfy one's urges for the rest of the year, if not forever. But for Queen Pabllo Vittar, that was just a typical Sunday. Less than one week later, right in…


Kylie Minogue Dancing Video

'Dancing' Video: Kylie Minogue Dances With Death (Literally)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BDImdAfodA By now, we've (begrudgingly) accepted that Kylie Minogue, our Mighty Aphrodite, Fever Inducer and Disco Savior, went down to Nashville to do some songwriting and got...inspired by the culture, picking up a gee-tar and a little bit of a twang in the…


Dua Lipa IDGAF

'IDGAF': Two Dueling Dua Lipas, Not One Fuck to Be Given

So save it, get gone, shut up / 'Cause if you think I care about you now / Well, boy, I don't give a fuck. Dua Lipa, The Pop Star Who Could Be The One, is kicking off 2018 with the only thing that's better than one Dua Lipa: two. The stylish music video for the MNEK co-penned "IDGAF" - one of the…


Tove Lo Mistakes

'Mistakes' Video: Tove Styrke Evades Matrimony for a Dance Party

There are few absolute truths in pop music. Two of them, however, are featured in this particular production: One is that all pop crafted by a Tove is objectively good. The other is that a bridal aesthetic is never a bad idea, thanks to the Creator of Life & Music herself, Her Holy Madgesty…
