“Mirrors” – Justin Timberlake
JT didn’t even give us enough time to finish swooning over “Shirt and Tie,” and he’s already come back with a new single. While “Shirt and Tie” was a more laid back R&B track, “Mirrors” draws on classic “Cry Me a River” style Justin. And get this, ladies, it’s eight minutes long. Yes, that means you get to listen to the sweet sounds of JT’s voice non-stop for eight whole minutes. Check out Justin Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience dropping March 19.
“Stay” – Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko (One-take version)
Okay, all I could say after watching this video was wow. Just wow. Rihanna took things to a whole new level with her new video for “Stay.” Shot in one single take, RiRi sits in a bathtub with no makeup, no extra editing, and no frills. It’s just her sitting there raw, singing the emotional ballad with some extremely convincing sad-face shots. The video is so astoundingly simple it’s just perfect. There’s another
“Whatever” – My Name is Kay
Every wonder what would happen with KeSha and Cher Lloyd somehow created a love child? The product would be up and comer My Name is Kay. One part glitter queen, one part sassy fashionista, and all parts catchy as hell! In her video for “Whatever,” Kay struts her stuff in crazy outfits, perfects her bratty rap style, and pretty much makes everyone jealous of her great life.
“A Tattered Line of String” – The Postal Service
Not gonna lie, I almost forget The Postal Service ever existed, since they’re been MIA for almost 10 years. But Ben Gibbard and the gang are finally back with a brank new track! The wonderful, electronic/indie jam fits right in with the EDM craze going on, but still keeps the essence of the band with profound lyrics about relinquishing control.
“Stubborn Love” – The Lumineers
The Lumineers’ video for their new single “Stubborn Love” stars the CUTEST LITTLE GIRL EVER!!! Even if you hate the song I guarantee the video will make you smile. In the video, a little girl tries to get over her parents’ split and will just melt your heart. The band doesn’t even make an appearance in the video except for one moment, but with the expressive song and perfect lead actress it just goes to show how talented the band really is.
