OH MY GOD! Beastie Boys are back!?!? They’re possibly one of my favorite groups EVER. As a fellow white Jew who supports alternative hip-hop, I feel a deep connection with these badasses. They’re so innovative and I can never get enough of them. And now they’re releasing a new album?! YES YES YES! I also heard No Doubt is in the process of making a new album.. Hell yes! All the best bands are coming back to life! Me happy.

MUSIC VIDEO: “Glory” – Ryan Leslie

Really like this. Ryan Leslie just released his new music video, “Glory”, which is the first video off his new album Les is More and I love what he did with it. It’s a great hip-hop song; love the power-instrumental and lyrics. Electric guitar + haunting chorus? I’ll  take it. One of the scenes in the video is reminiscent of Drake, but I can’t remember which Drake video I’m thinking of.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ryan, check out a snippet of the press release here:

“Leslie is no stranger to glory. A graduate of Harvard at 19, his first mentors in the music industry were Sean “Diddy” Combs and Tommy Mattola. Since then, he has gone on to produce Billboard-topping tracks for the likes of Fabolous, Mary J Blige, Britney Spears, as well as launching the career of fledgling pop-star Cassie. Not to be outdone, his own solo efforts have been highly applauded, earning him nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Best Male R&B Artist” at the 2009 BET Awards as well as a Grammy nomination for Transition.”

Speaking of epic music videos..

When I saw this, I sat there for awhile thinking “did that really just happen”? I never got the monkey+OK Go vibe from this song, but apparently Bruno did. I love 1-take, continuous dance music videos, and this one is just so goofy that it’s amazing. Hilarity ensues in Bruno’s new masterpiece. I LOVE this song because I agree with it. Wow. Nice.

MUSIC VIDEO: “Nobody’s Perfect” – Jessie J

OMG. I am officially considering myself a part of the Jessie J movement. I had my reservations about her even though she’s disgustingly talented vocally and lyrically…. but wow! This music video is amazing. She took Alice in Wonderland and kicked it in the ass. Then she stomped on it. She then continued to put it in the sleeper hold and destroy it. Just kidding, I get carried away when I’m excited. But in all seriousness this video is absolutely stunning! The lips scene is…ahh! They should have kept more of that scene, it’s unbelievable. FABULOUS music video and even more FANTASTIC song.  She is slaughtering the pop music scene. Do I hear the distant yelps of another British Invasion? I would love that, wouldn’t I… mate. I’m not sure if I’m ready to consider myself #TeamJessie, but… #TeamJessie!

P.S. How the F much did that video cost? Now THAT’S a production!

Woah! I’m smitten! This is amazing. Cris Cab is a super cool the cool, chill artist, and he’s young too. He has done amazing covers that have garnered much attention on YouTube, including “Black and Yellow” (which is incredible), but he just released an original song/music video that is fantastic. It makes me want summer so much more than I already did… thanks, Cris. If you want to feel this cool summer bliss, stare at pretty people, and listen to great music, you better watch this music video.

Also, I might be going to his show this weekend, so stay tuned for more Cris Cab updates.

New Asher. I actually really like this song and video. In the video, he plays a drunken hott mess and it’s quite entertaining. He went from college partier to drunkard on a beach pretty quickly! The song is pretty typical Asher, not that that’s a negative thing – he’s got a cool, chill sound. Definitely check it out. Click on the picture above to watch the video. The video is a Scooter Braun production. Yes, Bieber’s Scooter Braun.

Aww! So adorable! Young love…

This video is super cute. It perfectly exemplifies the classic little boy who likes a girl and therefore is mean to her. Still doesn’t make sense to me to this day. Also, I love the song – I’m really into Atmosphere lately, he’s been pumping out good song after good song after good music video after good music video. Keep it up, A.

Here’s the second release off Tayyib Ali’s upcoming mixtape, Keystone State of Mind. Simple video, but cool song. I’ve never heard of Amandi, but he’s got a great voice. Cool. Cool. It’s cool.

“Bring It (Feat. Tinchy Stryder)” – Jodie Connor

Get ready for some pop perfection hottness! Not really sure how I feel about newcomer Jodie Connor yet, but I do know that this song is a SMASH. Even though I hate handing imaginary congratulatory items called “props” to people, I may “give” them to this artist. Love the track, the melody, the fun video.. it’s just such a good song! Also, does anyone get a Jennifer Lopez flashback around the 2:00 mark? Watch it and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Girl’s a’workin.
