Music Monday: “Talk Dirty” – Jason Derulo Feat. 2 Chainz

Now there’s one thing I appreciate more than anything in a music video. What is that exactly? Sick dance moves! Moves that make me want to start up my dancing career and go all out on the dance floor.

Now Jason Derulo already is known for his wicked moves, but this new music video is none stop insane! “Talk Dirty” featuring 2 Chainz is fun, upbeat, tropical and most of all makes me want to get up and shake it!

The way that the shadow falls over the dancers when the chorus drops is my favorite. It reminds me of my old days in Dance Productions when we would have control over the lighting in our dances. Well enough about me, go on and talk dirty on the dance floor with this jam!

Music Video Monday: “Can’t Remember To Forget You” – Shakira Feat. Rihanna

Hot, cigars, and bodacious bods are just some key words to describe this music video. You can also add, spicy, sexual, and oh man!

“Can’t Remember To Forget You” by Shakira featuring Rihanna has been out for a while now but with less than two weeks of the music video being out it already has over 105 million views. But I mean come on, it’s obvious why! These ladies are hot!

Check out the video and enjoy the catchy song.

A Little Bit of Inspiration, If I Do Say So Myself: Lose Yourself

So I guess I should announce that I got a new job as a writer/reporter for a new start-up website. This is super exciting for me as it would be my first “career” position and the title just puts a great smile on my face.

While it will be a challenge, it’s a challenge that will benefit me for my future. So why the Eminem video? Well for starters, I do love me some Slim Shady, but the lyrics are also pretty inspirational, minus the cussing but you catch my drift. Let’s check out my favorite lines:

“Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity,
to seize everything you ever wanted, one moment,
would you capture it or just let it slip?”

Really though, would you capture the opportunity or be too afraid to take it? I took it!

“The moment, you own it, you better never let it go.
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow.
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.”

You never know what life will bring you, so take chances, take the risk and see how life unfolds.

“Success is my only motherfucking option, failure’s not” … Self explanatory.

“You can do anything you set your mind to, man”… or woman! You do you! And while you’re at it achieve those goals.

🙂 Happy Friday

Welcome to a New Year and new music for the week. We’re starting off with a brand new music video by Ellie Goulding.

“Goodness Gracious” is a fun, electro-fueled jam that features the gorgeous singer in sequins and bubblegum tones. Black lights, neon signs and her uber eccentric voice make this a great driving song to begin the year.

In her signature shorts and sneakers Ellie is pure gold!

#MM: “The Monster” Music Video – Eminem Feat. Rihanna

Not too long ago we heard “The Monster” by Eminem featuring Rihanna and now the music video has premiered and it is just as outstanding as we had imagined.

First we get a minute intro that is intriguing and the scene is set with Eminem sitting, watching a video mash-up of his life and music with words flashing on the screen such as Fame and Addiction. Flash to the side where we see a smoldering Rihanna with a fitted black dress and an A-line bob haircut.

As the song begins we see Marshall Mathers himself stuck in an elevator and at every stop we get a “re-make” of some of his greatest videos and songs starting with “Hi My Name Is” where Rihanna takes the place of Dr. Dre in the therapist chair. Next stop on the elevator ride is back to 8 mile with “Lose Yourself”.

It’s been less than a week since it premiered and it already has over 21 million views. Looks like The Real Slim Shady is back in the rap game for now. Speaking of rap game check out his other vid for “Rap God“.

Music Monday: Beyonce feat. Jay-Z “Drunk In Love”

Remember “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce feat. Jay Z way back when? Well apparently now B and J are “Drunk In Love”.

Queen Bey recently surprised and changed the music game with an unexpected album release. Out of the blue she released something that captured the entire music industries ears and attention. Of course who better than to pull a fast one on us than B herself.

Now with new songs and videos, Beyonce shows us that being drunk and in love with your hubby is just oh-so-good.

Happy Monday!

#MM: “Rap God” – Eminem

Eminem is giving himself a new name, adding to his others such as Slim Shady and Marshall Mathers. This time he’s calling himself a Rap God, or at least beginning to feel like one.

His first music video from his recently released album Marshall Mathers LP 2 is six long minutes of pure genius. His robotic freestyle and lyrics along with an intense video show us he still has what it takes.

Make sure to also listen to his other great hit “The Monster” feat. Rihanna HERE.

MM: “Bound 3” – James Franco and Seth Rogen

Umm…can we take a moment of silence for what new project James Franco and Seth Rogen have just created?

“Bound 2” by Kanye was released not too long ago with some surprising shots of Kimmy K. It didn’t take too long to have parodies come from left and right but I don’t think we expected this! “Bound 3” as the duo would like to call it have sure gone to another level on this video.

Go ahead and take a peek for yourself.
