The best way to judge a boy band’s potency is the intensity of the screaming throng that accompanies its every move. That was true in the 1960s, when the mop-top-era Beatles incited widespread hysteria, and it was true again at the turn of the millennium, when Backstreet Boys and NSYNC became the faces of a … More »

Pink is having the last laugh. This past summer, when MTV awarded its Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award to the singer born Alecia Beth Moore, there was much social media cackling; surely they weren’t serious about elevating this durable and reliable hitmaker to the same iconic level as Beyoncé, Kanye West, and Justin Timberlake? … More »

“2U” by David Guetta and Justin Bieber has been an international sensation, garnering more than 400 million streams, 500,000 downloads, and 240 million views. Now, the worldwide hit has received the royal music video treatment.
This music video was directed by Brewer, a directing duo that joined the hybrid production company PRETTYBIRD back in 2012. The duo has experience and background in both illustration and production, allowing them to include such a diverse storyline for the video.
“When we first heard ‘2U’ we were struck by how the music and lyrics supported each other. The song perfectly captures the emotional phenomenon of loving someone to the point where there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for them. We thought it would be great to embrace this idea, being as it’s one of our most beloved cultural clichés, and repeat it over and over again to try to see if through repetition a new perspective, a new deconstruction, could happen. It’s like saying a word over and over again. Eventually it starts to lose its shape. We hope people are compelled to watch it multiple times because there is a lot of fun stuff hiding in the frames.” – Brewer
In the video, a couple gets into an argument that endangers the future of their relationship. The vicious cycle of arguing repeats throughout the video’s entirety, with different possible scenarios. These subtle changes hint at what could possibly have gone differently if other factors came into play. Animations, zombie apocalypses, old-school musicals, and much more aid in these other possible outcomes.
Producer duo The Runners are legendary in the hip-hop scene, having been the forces behind singles from Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Lil’ Wayne, among many others. Andrew “Dru Brett” Harr and Jermaine “Mayne Zayne” Jackson have now rebranded themselves to try their hand within the electronic scene under new moniker BLVK JVCK, and their first single featuring Dyo is now out via Big Beat Records. BLVK JVCK does not mark the end of The Runners, who will continue to produce enduring hip-hop classics, but rather an exciting fresh start for the producers.
“Mind Games” masterfully blends hip hop with subtle electronic undertones while Dyo’s sensual vocals draws the listener in. The catchy track is sure to be a radio hit that the duo will be able to add to their long list of past successes. Watch the full music video for “Mind Games.”
Marilyn Manson has released a surprisingly palatable single entitled “KILL4ME.” The track combines the sound he’s carried for decades with less rigid, more modern feel. While Manson has long occupied one of the darkest corners of the music industry, this release is along the lines of a radio ready, reverb-laden electronica track.
Last summer, Justin Bieber used Marilyn Manson’s likeness on some very expensive tour merch. (Basically just a regular Manson tee with “Bigger Than Satan Bieber” on the back.) The designer of the shirt, Fear Of God, said that he had gotten Manson’s permission for the t-shirt, but Manson has a different story in a … More »
