“Rum and Raybans” – Sean Kingston ft. Cher Lloyd
One again, Sean Kingston has a hit on his hands with “Rum and Raybans,” the new single off his latest album Back 2 Life. The premise of the song is simple: All Mr. Kingston needs to have fun on the dance floor is a glass of rum in his hand and Raybans on his face (you know, to protect his eyes from all the bright lights and such). And all I need to have fun is this song pounding on the speakers…and some rum would be nice too. There’s a ton of synth, a robot voice, hard beat, Kingston’s signature reggae type vocals, and the one and only Cher Lloyd lending her sauciness to the mix. If you’re looking for some new party tracks I definitely recommend this one.
“How” – Regina Spektor
Regina Spektor gets dark and emotional in her new single “How.” The somber track is about breaking up and wondering how she can ever live without her ex-beau. It’s all quite heartbreaking and Spektor’s powerful pipes will give you chills. The beauty of the song shines through the video, which is shot with a combination of animation and live action. Directed by Margo Weathers, Spektor is impeccably styled with quirky violin-inspired makeup, feathers, and butterfly wings. Spektor’s new album What We Saw From the Cheap Seats is out now.
“The Boys” – Nicki Minaj ft. Cassie
All righty people. If you’re at work right now I would suggest turning your laptop away so your boss can’t see you computer screen because things are about to get pretty raunchy. But what else can you expect from a collaboration with bombshells Nicki Minaj and Cassie right? The track itself is catchy as hell alternating between fast rapping from Nicki and then slowing it down with an acoustic guitar and slow singing from Cassie. The ladies strut their stuff in leotards, hang out in a very pink barbershop, and pretty much just remind everyone that they’re sexy and they know it. Then things get a little weird and Nicki kills everyone. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
“F**kin’ Problem” – A$AP Rocky ft. Drake, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar Read more…
Don’t worry about whatever playlist you settled on for today because you’re pretty much going to have this mashup “Like A Bad White Guy Party Gangnam Style” on loop until you literally go insane trying to keep up with all the dance moves. Try combining Psy’s horse-riding move with LMFAO’s shuffle. Your head might explode.
Anyway, the mashup, which is by Steve Streza features a lot of our fave hits. Check out the playlist below.

From chains to flashy bling, the guys of Far East Movement have a keen sense of style. They sat down with @Jordans_life and talked about musical geniuses that inspired their whole Dirty Bass vibe, such as The Beastie Boys, RUN D.M.C, LL Cool J and more. It’s pretty much their homage to the classics. If you couldn’t help but notice the huge boom box on the side (that used to be a briefcase), it actually works! I know..awesome!
Far East Movement were pretty balling in high school, swimming and learning backstroke (if you get our sexual innuendo). They sat down with andPOP after the MMVAs and described their first kiss with tongue which was way back in elementary school. WHA? They also talk about partying Project X style with dogs on the trampoline and everything.
Some of our fave celebs headed to the LMFAO-hosted official Universal Music Canada After Party last night where they could shuffle with the guys who created the “Party Rock Anthem.”
Add Ubisoft’s best-selling videogame Just Dance and you pretty much have everything you need IN LIFE. There’s nothing we love more than a little schexy dancing and friendly competition courtesy of Just Dance.
In attendance was Hedley, Marianas Trench, Keshia Chante, Kardinal Offishall and many more. Far East Movement was also there to perform a live DJ set at Toronto’s Maison Mercer.
LMFAO (above) were definitely badass hosts and if you want to know more about their post-party-rock adventures or Just Dance you can follow the Twitter hashtags #afterpartyrock and #JustDanceTO.

The guys from Far East Movement had to hitchhike in the New Mexico desert after their tour bus broke down.
TMZ reports the guys were in the middle of nowhere, and trying to make it to Phoenix to catch a flight. Luckily a nice lady picked them up, and the guys made the flight, which was delayed because of a hail storm.
To thank the lady who picked them up, the guys gave her $200 and tickets to Lil’ Wayne’s tour.
We aren’t surprised the guys from F.E.M. were so nice. We interviewed them earlier this year and we thought they were solid dudes.
Far East Movement is a hard group not to like because they have a little bit of everything in their music recipe – a dash of electro, a tea spoon of hip-hop, and a whole lot of pop. They have also become role models for the Asian community. We spoke to the guys recently after performing to a sold out show in Toronto.
With the MMVAs only three days away, anticipation is rising for Toronto’s biggest party. Today’s feature will take a look at Far East Movement and Dev, who will be performing on the big night.
Bridging the gap between underground party records and mainstream hip-hop and pop, Far East Movement and Dev have gone straight to the #1 spots with songs such as ‘Like a G6.’
The group is comprised of a dynamic foursome that uses hip-hop, pop, electro and dance to create truly unique music. Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman have already completed two world tours. The group’s music has also been featured on numerous television shows and films, including ‘Get Him To The Greek’ and ‘Gossip Girl.’
Dev, who frequently performs and contributes to the group, holds her own as well. She’s had many hits on her own, including the infectious ‘Bass Down Low.’ She is currently finishing up a debut studio album, ‘The Night The Sun Came Up,’ and is touring with User and Akon on Usher’s ‘OMG Tour.’
Check out a video we recently did with Dev, and don’t forget: Enter our contest for a chance to win a wristband to the 2011 Muchmusic Video Awards.
Have you ever heard of Dev? Well you should have if you know the tunes “Like a G6″ and “Bass Down Low.” Dev is becoming huge after working with acts like Far East Movement and The Cataracs. She spoke with us about grinding it out all these years, and she helps us define her musical style, along with showing us her fingers’ gold chains (watch and you will see what that means).
