MuuTunes: July 2015

Hello! It is hot in The City. The city being New York City, of course. There are no other cities out there. Are there? None come to mind. Nope! Guess not. I guess the heat comes with the whole summer situation, but it's especially oppressive this week, isn't it? (Person reading from anywhere but…


HAIM (And Their Hair) Look Gorgeous In The Video For Calvin Harris' "Pray To God"

I know I shouldn't have kept you waiting...but I'm here now (REFERENCE). On the off-chance that you already follow my ramblings and/or endure my selfies on one of my various social channels like Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat (and if you don't, you're seriously dead to me), you might have noticed…


"Dollar Signs": Tinashe And Calvin Harris Have No Chill

Here comes the smash-ah! Tinashe's spectacular debut record Aquarius has stayed on solid repeat since the second it hit the shelves, but it's time to put the LP on pause for a moment — for more Tinashe, that is. Superstar DJ/producer Calvin Harris' upcoming record Motion (out next week!) is…


"Outside": Calvin Harris And Ellie Goulding Lose The Love, But Save The Magic

Calvin Harris' new record, Motion, is on the road to becoming a major Album Of 2014 contender: Between the incredible "Blame" with John Newman, the appropriately titled summer smash "Summer" and “Under Control” with Alesso and Hurts — as well as upcoming collabos with queens like Tinashe, Gwen…


"Blame": John Newman And Calvin Harris Supply Soulful Angst For The Dance Floor

You all remember John Newman, right? He's the incredibly talented UK soul-pop crooner who gave us some truly killer cuts late last year, including "Love Me Again," "Cheating" and, my personal favorite, "Losing Sleep." For whatever reason (blame it on Sam Smith mania across the globe?), he got a…


Win A Copy of Calvin Harris' '18 Months'! (Album Giveaway)

Calvin Harris: A man who needs no real introduction...but I will, anyway. After carving out early smashes with the likes of MuuMuse faves like Róisín Murphy's "Off & On" (which was scrapped and given to the also amazing Sophie Ellis-Bextor) and Kylie Minogue's "In My Arms," the skyrocketing…

Time to cut your hair, paint your toes and cry those happy tears once again, ladies and ladyboys: Miss Cheryl is back! Following two massive lead solo singles--2009's "Fight For This Love" and 2010's "Promise This" (both of which peaked at #1)--the gorgeous Girls Aloud chanteuse and former X…


Scissor Sisters: Only The Horses (Single Review)

Cheryl Cole to Return with Calvis Harris-Produced Smash for Third Album

Queen Cheryl "Chezza" Cole, she of The Almighty Aloud and X Factor GIFs aplenty, recently put the finishing touches on her third studio album, which is due out later in 2012. Now, the pop beans have been spilled by Sunday Mirror columnist Dean Piper, who confirmed earlier today that "We Found…


Lip Service: Talking That Talk Between the Sheets with Rihanna (Album Review)

Does any other pop star's album art talk the talk quite like Rihanna's? Two years ago, the black and gray sheen and jagged metal "R" logo perfectly exemplified the grim, post-apocalyptic noir of Rihanna's 2009 masterpice Rated R, as the singer menacingly peered out from behind her hand while…


A GIF by GIF Reaction to VH1's Album Preview of Rihanna's 'Talk That Talk"

NO, BUT ACTUALLY HOLD THE PHONE AND DROP YOUR BABY RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A DRILL. FIRST OF ALL: Rihanna JUST announced on Twitter this evening that she'll be Ri-leasing the Dr. Luke-produced "You Da One" on Friday, which will then hit on iTunes on Sunday night. Um, fuck YES! Flawless…
