Mariah Carey rides Miguel's hog in '#Beautiful' video: Watch it here!

Considering how much Mariah Carey’s new single “#Beautiful” is driven by guest vocalist Miguel, it’s only appropriate the video for said single features Carey riding on the back of Miguel’s motorcycle.

The clip, which premiered last night on American Idol, actually features Miguel in multiple drivers’ seats: He later sits behind the wheel of a cherry automobile while Mimi teases a handful of upskirt shots in what appears to be a chandelier-adorned barn.

There’s little else besides those two set pieces, though luckily “#Beautiful” is such a breezy tune that it all falls into place. Give it a look below.  READ FULL STORY

Miguel and Kendrick Lamar team up for flashy 'How Many Drinks' video: Watch it here!

As anybody who caught Miguel on Saturday Night Live or has seen him in concert knows, the man really gets to shine in the live setting. So it’s only appropriate that the R&B world-beater’s new video revolves around some flashy-slash-classy performance footage.

In the new “How Many Drinks?” clip, Miguel struts and poses like Prince’s favorite scion while guest Kendrick Lamar drops by to spit his laid back verse and wear a trippy button-down/shorts combination.

Check it out below, and watch for the extremely well-executed microphone toss. How many takes did that take? READ FULL STORY

Iggy Azalea drops 'Work' video: Will she finally happen as a mainstream rapper?

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has been on the come-up for a while now, thanks to a series of blog-baiting videos and the heavy support of label boss T.I. (and also picking up a modeling contract along the way).

The march toward the release of her official debut album The New Classic continues with the video for “Work,” which finds Azalea invoking Thelma & Louise, rapping in front of a tractor trailer, and, like she does, wearing a full run of frame-grab-worthy outfits (rarely have a pair of spandex palm trees worked so hard to preserve a lady’s decency).

Afghan Whigs live in New York City -- still dark and dangerous at their first show in 13 years

When I first joined Entertainment Weekly a little over a year ago, the deputy managing editor asked me who my favorite songwriter was. I answered unequivocally: Greg Dulli, the seedy mastermind behind great 21st-century soul-scuzz combos Twilight Singers and the Gutter Twins. While Dulli has rarely put out anything I didn’t like, my adoration for him begins with the Afghan Whigs, the Cincinnati-bred combo who released a half dozen albums’ worth of cocksure R&B for the alt-rock era.

The band parted ways in 1999, but last night at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, they returned. (The Whigs were supposed to make their grand reunion at the Dulli-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New Jersey this September, but considering the band’s last show was at the now-defunct New York club Hush, Dulli wanted to start the band right where they left off over a decade ago.)

'Mad Men': The 'Zou Bisou, Bisou' song is already available on iTunes and vinyl (!)

You have to hand it to Matthew Weiner: The man knows how to get people talking. Even though Sunday night’s long-awaited fifth season premiere of Mad Men was scattershot (as most two-hour episodes of television tend to be), it’s owning the water-cooler scrums this morning.

The thing that sent people diving toward their Google machines was the new Mrs. Draper’s performance at her husband’s surprise party. “Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo” was a huge Google trend around midnight, though for people of a certain age, that only inspired memories of this candy-colored nightmare from childhood.

Madonna releases full 'Girl Gone Wild' video -- WATCH

Hints of “Vogue,” “I’m Sorry,” “Human Nature,” and “Like a Prayer” thread through Madonna’s new video for “Girl Gone Wild,” released 12 days after the Material Girl first teased it.

The black-and-white clip shows Madonna looking the best she has since at least 2005’s video for “Hung Up.” Of course there is the requisite writhing, hip grinding, a rousing dance sequence, and a smoldering mantourage. It is, in a word, awesome.

Watch below.

Carrie Underwood reveals new album cover (and music's best legs?)

Carrie Underwood has revealed the cover art for her new album, Blown Away, due out May 1.

Thanks to that wind, she’s showing off her right leg, Angelina-style. I’ve long said Underwood has the best legs in country music (sorry, Faith Hill). But should we expand that to include any genre? Go head and discuss. We’re practically forcing you to.  READ FULL STORY

R. Kelly returns with new single 'Share My Love': Hear it here!

While R. Kelly has talked about rolling out dozens more episodes of his much-loved Trapped in the Closet series, his first order of business is his upcoming album Write Me Back, which is scheduled for release in March. This morning, Kels dropped that album’s first single, a creamy slice of seduction called “Share My Love.”

Though his late 2011 single “Shut Up” got back to the business of R. Kelly crazy-talking R&B (you know, like “Real Talk”), his new single “Share My Love” sounds like a logical extension of 2010’s Sam Cooke-inspired Love Letter. With its disco strings and easy-breezy beat, “Share My Love” has more of a mid-period Marvin Gaye vibe to it, which hopefully means that Kels is working his way through R&B history and will eventually end up back at his own career in a few albums or so.

Give “Share My Love” a spin below. READ FULL STORY

D'Angelo covers Soundgarden, creates even more anticipation for long-awaited album

For anyone seduced by his 2000 masterpiece Voodoo, D’Angelo’s absence over the past dozen years has been deeply felt in the nether regions.

Voodoo has proved to be one of those albums that truly stands the test of time: Its take on neo-soul tropes encompassed Hendrixian guitar heroics, mid-period Prince psychedelia, and the kind of surreal hybrid R&B that has become de rigueur amongst some of the biggest rappers on Earth right now.

Luckily, the wait for a follow-up may finally be over. D’Angelo has a trio of live shows in Europe currently in his iCal, and according to people who have worked with him (including Roots mastermind ?uestlove and Amy Winehouse producer Mark Ronson), his third album is finally nearing completion.

And now, there’s new D’Angelo music online, featuring the singer covering Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” of all things. It’s a little rough (likely just a demo), but it proves not only that he still has his pipes, but that he’s also able to turn classic tunes on their heads. Get into the groove below: READ FULL STORY
