Selena Gomez And J Balvin’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ Video Is A One-Shot Optical Illusion

For her first music video appearance of 2019, Selena Gomez gets miniature for a star-studded slumber party with J Balvin, Benny Blanco, and Tainy.

The foursome recently joined forces for the poppy Latin-trap earworm “I Can’t Get Enough,” which now comes with a creative one-shot video. The collab itself is a seductive and steamy affair, but the foursome keep it light and fun in the accompanying, sleepover-themed visual. Directed by Jake Schreier, it opens on Sel wearing silk pajamas and waking up in a giant bed (if only we could all look that glam in the morning!). She skips the coffee and instead kickstarts her day by dancing and jumping around on the cloud-like mattress with Balvin, Tainy, and Blanco, who’s dressed as a fluffy teddy bear.

The only question is: Are Selena and company actually shrunken down? Or are they normal-sized and their bedroom surroundings are super-sized? Is this all some sort of optical illusion? Watch below and decide for yourself.

In a tweet, Gomez wrote of the video, “Can’t believe we pulled it off in one take- even if I did fall once or twice trying.”

Tainy added in a press release, “On the video, we wanted to do something that felt special, iconic, but at the same time fun and just natural, nothing forced. I’m 100% sure we nailed it. From talking about the idea and then being on set, it was mind-blowing.”

Sia, Diplo, And Labrinth Made An Album As ‘LSD’ — And You Can Hear It Very Soon

LSD isn’t just a hallucinogenic drug anymore, it’s the name of a supergroup made up of British singer Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo. Last November, they released their debut EP, Mountains. Get used to seeing those letters in this new capacity because the group has announced that its self-titled debut LP, originally slated to drop last November, is coming on April 12.

The trio made the announcement yesterday on Twitter with what looks like the album art depicting the trio in outrageous dress. Imagine Mortal Kombat characters at Easter dinner and you’ll get the general gist of this. Except instead of sitting at a table, the trio is outside in nature, soaking in the sun. If the previously released singles “Genius,” “Audio,” “Thunderclouds,” and “Mountains” are any indicators, LSD will be as chaotic and enthralling as their outfits are.

LSD will be the first studio project from Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo in some time. Labrinth’s last studio effort, Electronic Earth, came out in 2012. Sia’s Everyday Is Christmas came out in 2017 and Diplo’s Random White Dude Be Everywhere hit streaming services in 2014. We’re only a month out from finally seeing what the trio can cook up together.

Solange’s Dancing Melts The Webcam In Steamy ‘Binz’ Video

Solange is fresh out of surgery for removing her foot from our necks following the release of her new album When I Get Home and has shared a video of sorts for “Binz,” one of the album’s standout tracks. Although it’s only a minute, the clip shows off a wondrous amount of the singer’s easygoing personality. And she can dance her ass, off – that’s what we’re really here to see.

Yes, this video is about dancing. But it isn’t an expensive, in-studio performance with bright lights, big set pieces, and coordinated routines. Solange keeps it intimate, sexy, and, mysterious, all while an all-knowing smile never leaves her face. It’s from the perspective of a webcam that we see the singer set up at the beginning. Once the track’s percussive backbone began chittering away and the heavenly vocals began to play, she’s off. Solange’s enticing figure never leaves the frame. Like a plume of smoke, she twirls and swirls in the wind, her body rolling side to side. It’s a collage of brief clips that also show off her many smiling moods; sometimes she’s wide-eyed grinning as she dances with her palms on her knees while gyrating her hips, other times it’s a slight smirk while she twirls in a circle, showing off her figure. Other times, it’s not a smile at all; she’s lip-singing the song’s lyrics and bouncing her thighs. This filterless lens, combined with the percussive wonderland that is “Binz,” creates a surreal experience, one where it feels like Solange is serenading us as she wafts in the winds. It’s OK to need to take a breather once the video ends.

When I Get Home came out on March 1, followed hours later by a “Texas Film” companion to supplement the new body of work. The LP’s release was a pleasant surprise following a brief and mysterious rollout with a unique BlackPlanet page at its center.

Watch the simple, absorbing video up above.

Jonas Brothers Just Scored Their First No. 1 Single Ever, And ‘This Is Just The Beginning’

It’s official: Jonas Brothers are back and bigger than ever! On Monday (March 11), Billboard reported that the band’s recently released comeback single, “Sucker,” has claimed the top spot on the Hot 100. Incredibly, it’s the first No. 1 single for JB, doing what “Burnin’ Up,” “Lovebug,” and “S.O.S.” never could.

Taking to Instagram, the boys celebrated their big news with individual videos that let their respective personalities shine — Nick is pumped AF in his, Kevin is sweet and speechless, and Joe wears a Jar Jar Binks mask and kicks an inflated clown.

The official Jo Bros Instagram account compiled the vids into one compilation, captioning it, “Today’s a big day people. We’re officially celebrating our FIRST EVER #1 on the @billboard Hot 100 plus the first group this CENTURY (and second group EVER) to debut #1 🎉 We can’t thank you guys enough for all the support. We love you guys so much. … This is just the beginning.”

In his own post, Nick added, “AHHH!!! This is unbelievable. My heart is so full of gratitude. There was a time I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be able to make music with my brothers again, let alone have a number 1 song on the Hot 100 on Billboard. … This is gonna be an unforgettable ride. Get ready!”

Before “Sucker,” the highest the trio had been on the charts was at No. 5 with “Burnin’ Up” in 2008. Clearly, their reunion is striking a chord with fans old and new — at the time of publishing, “Sucker” remains the top song on Spotify’s United States Top 50, and the accompanying video has racked up a chill 62 million views on YouTube. Welcome back, boys!

Khalid Smiles His Way Through The Bright, Color-Coded ‘Talk’ Video

Talk” is one of the more up-tempo songs in Khalid‘s genre-spanning catalogue, and its new visuals are smiley, happy, and candy-coated to match. Happy Monday, everyone!

The Emil Nava-directed video takes a page out of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name,” dropping Khalid in a variety of bright, color-coded backdrops. The Texas singer models some cool monochrome styles as he grooves along to the Disclosure-produced track, while a crew of dancers do their thing around him. What the vid lacks in narrative, it makes up for with playful color schemes and, in true Khalid style, total contagious energy.

Khalid is already in the midst of a busy spring — he made his Saturday Night Live debut over the weekend, performing “Talk” and “Better” on the Idris Elba-hosted episode. Both tracks appear on his hotly anticipated sophomore album, Free Spirit, due on April 5. Two days before that, the singer will premiere a companion film (also directed by Nava) that will screen in theaters worldwide. If “Talk” is any indication, expect more eye-catching visuals from Khalid and Nava soon.

2 Chainz And Ariana Grande Party With The Well-Dressed People In ‘Rule The World’ Video

2 Chainz and Ariana Grande‘s magical collaboration, “Rule The World,” has received its due video treatment. This illustrious suit and tie affair matches the song’s vibrancy and elegance for a magical four-minute experience that looks as expensive as it does a good time to shoot. We can rest assured that the high profile tune from Chainz’s recently released album Rap Or Go To The League has received a visual crafted with masterful care.

Somewhere in Los Angeles, there’s a magnificent celebration going on in an underground ballroom. It’s like one of those old-school speakeasies where people come to be themselves and free their minds from society’s shackles. Here, music peppers the atmosphere, sung by a stunning siren, and swirling bodies move in unison to the singer’s falsettos. This singer is Grande who is the center of attention with her holy shawl made of the finest of feathers. As she sings to the dancing, milly-rocking crowd, 2 Chainz joins her for a rousing performance.  He’s similarly dolled up, in a designer suit and expensive frames, and packs the harsher energy equivalent of Grande’s soft contribution. Their contrasting energies create a unique experience that shows the power of their teamwork. And they make a good creative team together that would do well to work together again.

This fated collaboration came after a minor controversy involving Grande’s video for “7 Rings” which 2 Chainz believed bit some of his style. After a meeting, 2 Chainz hopped on the song’s remix and, in return, Grande hopped on “Rule The World.” Last week, 2 Chainz released a time-traveling video for “Money In The Way,” another tune from Rap Or Go To The League.

Watch this elegant video up above.

BTS Announce Their Next Album And The Clues Were There All Along

Global superstars BTS have set a date for their next release and — surprise! — it’s a lot sooner than anticipated. With the South Korean boy band set to kick off their U.S. stadium tour in May, the international chart-toppers have confirmed that their next album, Map of the Soul: Persona, will drop Friday, April 12 — just in time for you to learn all of the fan chants ahead of their tour.

Map of the Soul: Persona marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the artists following their massively successful Love Yourself trilogy, which concluded with Love Yourself: Answer — peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — this past November. Per a press release, the album will be available for pre-order starting March 13.

While their passionate fans (known as ARMY) will undoubtedly parse through potential clues buried deep in their past work, performances, and wardrobe choices (yes, BTS are that meticulous), here’s what we do know about Persona: BTS have been hard at work on the album for months, even pulling an all-nighter the evening before their historic presenting gig at the 2019 Grammys to finish it.

“The concept is paying off,” leader RM said on the red carpet. “I hope [the fans] love it, and they listen to it, and they like it.” That concept he’s referring to started all the way back in 2013 with their debut single, “No More Dream” — and BTS have cleverly and carefully weaving together a narrative of self-love and acceptance ever since.

In fact, astute fans have already discovered that the opening of BTS’ performance at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in December of last year hinted at Map of the Soul with a short vignette that read: “You gave me power. You gave me love. So now I’m a hero, so now I’m a boy with love. I’ll show you the map of the soul. I’ll show you the dream.”

Wherever the Bangtan narrative leads, one thing’s for sure: BTS are poised to break even more records in 2019. Where do you go after two No. 1 albums and a sold-out stadium tour? RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook are about to find out.

Drake Draws Inspiration From Austin Powers On New Tour Merch

Drake‘s Assassination Vacation Tour kicked off in Manchester, England Sunday night (March 10). Ahead of the tour’s first performance, the Toronto rapper released some new merch to celebrate. It uses some Austin Powers-inspired graphics to make something memorable of his upcoming six-night string of shows in London. Of course, it’s going to be the best — and by the look it, potentially even shagadelic.

Drake posted the collection on Instagram and took the world back to 1997 with bright neon colors, bled through days of intense sunlight to resemble the late ’60s, a la the Austin Powers films. The British super-spy appears on some brightly colored hoodies and tees, between some shapely legs with his goofy yet focused resting facial expression. Regardless of whether you make it to the tour or not, this is one hoodie that must be bought.

Drake’s Assassination Vacation Tour is running now through April 26 and features Tory Lanez. Don’t look for Drizzy’s “Don’t Matter to Me” to be featured on the setlist, though. Although the Michael Jackson-sampling Scorpion tune did appear in the setlist for the Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour, it was recently removed, possibly following HBO’s Leaving Neverland and its allegations against the late singer.

Solange, J. Cole, Ariana, And More — Here’s Your Guide To 2019 Festival Season

By Nicole Briese

As the weather begins to warm up (any day now!), we’ve got just one thing on our minds: festival season. Each year, at the end of winter’s long, harsh reign, we’re rewarded with a bevy of events that take all of our favorite things (music, food, booze) and combine them for extended weekends of fun.

In theory, if you had the time (and the cash) you could fill just about every calendar weekend, beginning and ending your adventures in Austin, Texas — the city’s bread and butter, SXSW, kicks things off beginning today (March 11), while the Austin City Limits Music Festival brings things home in October. As for the months in between? You can travel from Indio, California, to Spain, Japan, Denmark, and beyond.

You’d certainly never be bored: Each festival, or celebration of music, has its own unique imprint — the newly-launched End of the Rainbow, for instance, is a raver’s paradise, while heavyweights like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella maintain their years-long standards of excellence.

Read on for your very own guide to all the best fests of 2019, and start making those travel plans, stat.

  • The Dates: March 11-17

    The Place: Austin, Texas

    Can’t Miss: Laura Jane Grace, Drinking Boys and Girls Choir, Swervedriver, Thee Oh Sees, Charlotte OC

    As anyone who’s ever attended SXSW knows, this week-long Texas event is so much more than a music festival. Sure, you can discover your fair share of up-and-comers or rock out to veterans such as ‘90s shoegazers Swervedriver, but you can also take part in wellness and gaming expos, hit up conferences on everything from food to the film and television industry, and network to your heart’s content. There’s more to do than one person could ever take in (2,000-plus official performers is a lot to get through), but hey, it’s worth a shot, right?

  • The Date: April 6

    The Place: Dorothea Dix Park, Raleigh, North Carolina

    Can’t Miss: J. Cole (and more to be announced)

    This brand new fest from North Carolina native J. Cole got off to a bit of an uncertain start — its inaugural date of September 15, 2018, which was scheduled to feature Big Sean, SZA, Young Thug and Nelly, was canceled due to Hurricane Florence. 2019 is looking up, however, with a brand new date of April 6. Ticket holders have the option to keep their passes or receive a refund in full — though if the new schedule is half as good as the first one was, we’re guessing they’ll want to keep ‘em!

  • The Dates: April 12-14, 19-21

    The Place: Empire Polo Club, Indio, California

    Can’t Miss: Ariana Grande, Solange, Childish Gambino, Janelle Monae, H.E.R., The 1975

    By now, Coachella needs no introduction. This two-weekend-long arts and music happening in the California desert has become the go-to music destination for celebs, tastemakers, and the like. Everything about Coachella, from its uber-stylish attendees to its mind-blowing talent, seems to be a cut above: Ariana Grande has been tapped to wow its crowds and simultaneously make history — she’s the fourth female to ever headline the fest as well as the youngest female to ever take home the honor. Meanwhile, the fest will likely be Solange’s first live dates since her dropping her brand-new album, When I Get Home.

  • The Dates: April 26-28

    The Place: Virginia Beach, Virginia

    Can’t Miss: Pharrell & Friends, Missy Elliott, Migos, SZA, Maggie Rogers, Anderson .Paak

    Produced by Live Nation and Pharrell Williams (a native of Virginia Beach) this three-day festival on the city’s most famous stretch of sand is set to kick its inaugural year off in 2019 with a bang. “It’s unlike anything anyone’s ever seen before,” the legendary producer assured the Virginian Pilot. Judging by the list of acts, he’s not kidding: In addition to its can’t-miss headliners, everyone from Jaden Smith and Deepak Chopra to the Dave Matthews Band is scheduled to perform. And that’s not all: A basketball tournament and “programs focused on art, technology and health” are also expected to entice guests.

  • The Dates: May 16-19

    The Place: Gulf Shores, Alabama

    Can’t Miss: Cardi B, Travis Scott, Khalid, Vampire Weekend, Bebe Rexha

    Hangout Fest began with a bang in 2010 — not only was it the first major music festival to be held on Alabama’s Gulf Shores, its first-year lineup boasted musical heavyweights such as John Legend and The Flaming Lips. And it’s only gotten better since: 2019’s artist list includes something for just about everyone, from the punk enthusiasts who will love The Interrupters to rap fans who can take pleasure in spitting every line of headliner Cardi B’s “Money” live, to the indie heads who can rejoice with Vampire Weekend’s expanded lineup.

  • The Dates: May 24-26

    The Place: Gorge Amphitheater, Quincy, Washington

    Can’t Miss: Santigold, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Vic Mensa, Flosstradamus, Bassnectar

    Washington’s Gorge Amphitheater is in for a big change this year with End of the Rainbow taking over for the fest formerly known as Sasquatch! The indie rock event, which featured Bon Iver, The National and Twenty One Pilots in recent years, ended its 17-year-run in 2018, making way for EOTR’s onslaught of EDM, dubstep, and rap. Santigold and Bassnectar are poised to take the stage for 2019, and camping options are available for purchase.

  • The Dates: May 30-June 1

    The Place: Parc del Fòrum, Barcelona, Spain and Porto, Portugal

    Can’t Miss: Solange, Cardi B, J Balvin, Rosalía, Carly Rae Jepsen, Future

    Like Lollapalooza, this overseas festival has greatly expanded since its inception in 2001, growing from an audience of roughly 8,000, to a six-figure headcount. Primavera Sound (not to be confused with its Portuguese counterpart, Nos Primavera Sound) treats fest-goers to a wide-ranging variety of talent that spans nearly every genre each year, and 2019 is no exception: Everyone from Liz Phair to Erykah Badu will be on hand. Carly Rae Jepsen will be there, too, but will she have a full album to perform? We’ll have to wait and see.

  • The Dates: May 31-June 2

    The Place: Randall’s Island Park, New York City, New York

    Can’t Miss: Tyler, The Creator, The Strokes, Lily Allen, Florence + the Machine, Charli XCX, Lil Wayne

    Not to be confused with the Oscars party of the same name, Governors Ball filled the gaping music festival void in the Big Apple in 2011 and has been gaining momentum ever since. Its sounds are diverse, its food selections are grand, and its backdrop features the city: wins all around!

  • The Dates: June 13-16

    The Place: Great Park Stage, Manchester, Tennessee

    Can’t Miss: Childish Gambino, Kacey Musgraves, The Lonely Island, Post Malone, Brandi Carlile

    Once a modern-day nod to Woodstock chock full of jam bands like Phish and folk rockers, this four-day extravaganza of music and arts has become a venerable who’s who of Grammy winners. Song and Record of the Year winner Childish Gambino headlines on June 14, while Album of the Year songwriter Kacey Musgraves is set to appear the following day. Closing out the fest on June 16 is reigning Best Rap Album champ Cardi B and three-time winner Brandi Carlile. Oh, and The Lonely Island are stopping by ahead of their (somehow) first-ever U.S. tour. What a roster!

  • The Dates: June 21-23

    The Place: The Woodlands, Dover, Delaware

    Can’t Miss: TLC, Panic! at the Disco, Dashboard Confessional, Travis Scott, Courtney Barnett

    Now in its seventh year, Firefly has grown into one of the most versatile music experiences out there for 2019. Music-wise, Panic! at the Disco is billed alongside acts such as Tyler, the Creator, TLC, and Vampire Weekend, while the fest’s Woodlands locale is like summer camp come to life. In between sets, you can relax in a designated hammock known as “The Nook,” groove to your own beats in the fest’s “silent disco” and explore art while traversing the pathway in between stages.

  • The Dates: June 27-30

    The Place: Double JJ Resort, Rothbury, Michigan

    Can’t Miss: Kygo, Bassnectar, Odesza, Zeds Dead, Alison Wonderland

    A raver’s dream, Electric Forest features all of the essentials for living your best dubstep life, from fireworks displays and vibrant lights to all the EDM beats your heart could ever want for. 2019’s grooves will come courtesy of DJs Kygo and Bassnectar. Better get those glow sticks ready.

  • The Dates: June 29-July 7

    The Place: Roskilde, Denmark

    Can’t Miss: Robyn, Travis Scott, The Cure, Tears for Fears, Cypress Hill

    One of the oldest fests on the list, Denmark’s Roskilde (originally named Sound Festival) was dreamed up in 1971 by two high school students looking to bring music to the hippies of their generation. These days, it’s one of the largest in Europe, attracting big name talent (The Cure, Travis Scott), plus lone theater acts, daring attendees (a “naked run” takes place each year with free tickets to next year’s show to the winners), and campers galore.

  • The Dates: July 19-21

    The Place: Union Park, Chicago

    Can’t Miss: HAIM, Robyn, Sky Ferreira, Neneh Cherry, Charli XCX

    This Chicago festival, known for its alt-rock and indie acts, is always top-notch in the talent department, and it’s the same this year: Everyone from electro-pop princess Robyn to ‘90s darling Neneh Cherry is on tap to perform. Pitchfork is also a great place to discover new and emerging artists, however, so keep your eyes peeled for the names at the bottom of the list!

  • The Dates: August 1-4

    The Place: Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois

    Can’t Miss: Ariana Grande (maybe)

    What began as a touring alt-rock fest in 1997 as founded by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell has grown into a global phenomenon, with annual events in Chicago, where it has been headquartered since 2003, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Though 2019’s lineup has yet to be released, a January rumor had Ariana Grande’s name up at the top of the headliners. Stay tuned.
