The Chainsmokers Present: 'Kanye'

After the overwhelming amount of success The Chainsmokers received from '#Selfie' almost everybody has been wondering the same exact thing; what's next?

In what will be their first single release since '#Selfie,' Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, aka The Chainsmokers, are getting ready to have a little fun with the notorious Kanye West. Recently posting a preview to their Instagram, the NYC duo have still left listeners everywhere confused and guessing on what exactly to expect with 'Kanye.' All we really know right now is that the track features some initially dreamy vocals from Siren, who sings, "One day I'll stand with a crown on my head like a god. Yeah, like a god." With only a very small fifteen second glimpse that cuts off before we get any real sense of the track, 'Kanye' could very easily go in any direction possible.

Miley Cyrus Supports Femininity in Pharell Williams' Video

Pharell Williams’ delivers the visual to “Come Get It Bae." The video is generally consistent with the tone of Williams’ latest album, G I R L as well as the video to other single, “Marilyn Monroe” in celebrating feminine beauty, freedom and, individuality. The scene plays out in Williams' studio as a bevy of women of various, ages, sizes and, ethnicities audition for a part in Williams’ video whilst having fun, dancing and just being themselves as he shoots the footage. Miley Cyrus makes a brief appearance amidst the liberating celebration, clad in cutoff jeans, pink accessories and a jacket bearing the embroidered logo of a pink spider.

Check Out the Brand New Video for "Hey Boo"

With unforgettable aesthetics to match the alluring beat associated with the hit single “Hey Boo,” the video for the Farroutt track was nothing less than expected. The leading lady looked flawless as she graced the screen in her floor length gown.

As her voice commands the video, there wasn’t a need for much else to look at. However, the director did an excellent job with the subtle visuals to complement Phyllisia’s powerful vocals. Her onscreen love interest was an excellent addition to the video. Their chemistry was impeccable, and perfectly matched with the ambience of the song.
