"The Key": Kelis Returns To The Dance Floor With Breach

Now, we all know that Kelis is a musical chameleon who can do whatever she damn well pleases: From R&B to hip-hop to electronica to soul, she's effortlessly conquered dozens of genres over the years. 2010's Flesh Tone was, of course, a particularly shining highlight in Kelis' discography, as the…


Fire Away, Fire Away: The Unparalleled Awesomeness of David Guetta's "Titanium (feat. Sia)"

STOP EVERYTHING IN YOUR FUCKING LIFE BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY FUCKING SONG THAT MATTERS TODAY. David Guetta - "Titanium (feat. Sia)" So it's a fight you want? Well, as Jordin Sparks would likely say: YABETTAGOANDGETCHURAMMA. Powerhouse Aussie-born soulstress Sia comes guns blazing in "Titanium,"…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 40 Albums of 2010 (And A Very Special Giveaway!)

Here we go again: The end of another year in music! 2010 may well be remembered as the Year of the Future (if not the Year of All Hearts--hint hint!): A year of fembots, androids, bionic women and time-traveling adventures deep into the 22nd century. Space-age love stories and robo-dramatics…


The Other Woman of Young Money: Introduucing...Shanell!

While Nicki The Ninja Lewinsky Harajuku Barbie Minaj may be getting all the glory as Young Money's reigning first lady, there's another woman in the crew slowly preparing to have her turn at bat: Meet Shanell. + Shanell is a singer/songwriter under Young Money, and quite a good and versatile one…


Ke$ha: Cannibal (Album Review)

For every Dr. Luke production, there is an equal and opposite Dr. Luke reproduction. With Cannibal, Ke$ha takes her debut (Animal) and gives it the Lady Gaga repackaging formula that worked so well in 2009: As The Fame Monster is to The Fame, Cannibal is a one-upping the original Animal package…


Kelis: Brave (Video Premiere)

Sigh. This is the Rankin-directed video for "Brave," the greatest song off of Kelis' impeccable Flesh Tone, which is a leading contender for album of the year. (WATCH) This song meant the world to me this year on a very personal level--to the point that I practically begged her to release it when…


Take Me To Wonderland: Interview with Natalia Kills (Part II)

It's very Sin City, for sure. You know there's that gang of hit girls--kind of like hookers? It's kind of what inspired my live show. Back in May of this year, I interviewed one of Cherrytree Records' newest acts, Natalia Kills. The up-and-coming artist was just in the midst of unveiling her…

Rihanna Gets Lonely for "Only Girl (In The World)" (Video Premiere)

That Mandler's gone and done it again: The director and longtime collaborator for Rihanna ("Unfaithful"; "Disturbia"; "Russian Roulette") has added yet another solid production to the ever-expanding RiRepetoire.

Kelis Debuts 3-D Video for Third 'Flesh Tone' Single, "Scream"

Here is the official video for "Scream," Kelis' next single from her flawless record, Flesh Tone. If you're like me (God have mercy on your soul), you don't own a pair of 3-D glasses either, so I recommend you do what I did and sort of keep crossing your eyes until Kelis pops right out of your…


MuuCast Episode Six: Rhythm & Muuse

It's recently come to my attention that far too little attention is paid to my R&B songstresses as of late--it's time to change that. "Rhythm & Muuse" is a 15-track collection of just a taste of the finest R&B-laced cuts I've come to love over the past few years, from Cassie to Amerie…


Kelis Performs Live for VEVO Summer Sets

It's been a hot minute since I spun Flesh Tone, so this could not have been more perfectly timed. VEVO has just unveiled Kelis' Summer Sets series, complete with five songs: "Acapella," "Brave," "Scream," "4th of July (Fireworks)" and "Emancipate." Fellow All Hearts Tour attendees will no doubt…
