New Music: Ciara - 'I Bet'

Ciara : I Bet (Single Cover) photo ciara-i-bet1.jpg

Ciara gets personal on "I Bet", the first single from her upcoming studio album, 'Jackie' — named after her mother — where the 29-year-old seems to take shot at her ex-fiance Future, with whom she called off her engagement last year after claims surfaced that he was unfaithful.

Produced by Harmony Samuels and written by the singer with Rock City, the slow-tempo does recall some of her earlier work and while I like it very much as an album track, I can't see it boding well as a lead single. For her sake, I hope she proves me wrong. Take a listen beneath:


New Music: Kelly Clarkson - 'Heartbeat Song'

Kelly Clarkson : Heartbeat Song (Single Cover) photo heartbeat_song_single.jpg

Kelly Clarkson is back in action with new music!!! The new mom gets back to work with the release of "Heartbeat Song", the first single lifted from her upcoming studio album 'Piece By Piece', which is currently penciled in for a March release.

Written by Kara DioGuardi, Audra Mae, Jason Evigan and Mitch Allan, the single is not as catchy as some of her past releases ("What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)" and "Since You Been Gone" just to name a few), but it still memorable enough to find a home on Pop radio and become a hit. The production keeps you guessing and as usual, her voice shine. Take a listen beneath:


New Music: Kanye West Feat. Paul McCartney - 'Only One'

Kanye West : Only One (SIngle Cover) photo the-story-behind-kanye-west-and-paul-mccartneys-only-one1.jpg

Kanye West kicked off the new year by releasing a brand new song. "Only One" is a somber ballad that sees the rap god utilizing auto-tune as he sings to his baby girl, North West, from the perspective of his late mother Donda West, who passed away in 2007.

Featuring keys and co-writing from Sir Paul McCartney, the song is remarkably beautiful, touching and further reaffirms why Yeezy will always remain a step ahead of his rap peers. He sees and hears things in music that they simply don't, and probably never will. Listen below:

Featured Artist Of The Month: Meghan Trainor

 photo 599a7852-a865-4977-a327-4f0491e7b891.jpg

With her debut studio album, 'Title', currently in stores and headed for the top spot on next week's Billboard 200 with sales exceeding 150,000 copies, pop singer Meghan Trainor earns the honor of becoming Celebrity Bug's Featured Artist for January 2015.

Thus far, the album has produced the No.1 smash, "All About That Bass", and the hit single, "Lips Are Movin", which currently stands at No.5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Watch the video beneath:

With 'The Boy Next Door' set to arrive in theaters on January 23rd, the ageless Jennifer Lopez and her sexy co-star Ryan Guzman grace the February 2015 cover of Latina magazine, where they dish on the forthcoming movie and the embarrassing sex scenes.

While you would think the sex scenes were easy, Guzman insists that isn't so. "I know it looks like we're in the moment and feeling each other out, but actually — and this is kind of embarrassing —[director] Rob Cohen was like, 'Move your hand to the left,' and 'Can you arch your back a little bit?' It was the most unsexy-really-sexy scene that you'll see on screen."

New Music: Carrie Underwood - 'Little Toy Guns'

 photo 49260f09-8ad6-49b1-9a51-dd2c83d697a3.png

Country superstar Carrie Underwood takes on the power of words and the emotional damage that they can cause on "Little Toy Guns", the second of the two brand new songs featured on her recently-released 'Greatest Hits: Decade #1' album.

Written by Underwood with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey, the song just further reaffirms why she is the top spawn of 'American Idol' and why she remains the top female vocalist in any genre of music. We can only hope the second decade, is just as rewarding. Listen beneath:

As 'The Voice' begins to wrap up its latest cycle, coach Blake Shelton is upping the promotion for his latest single, "Lonely Tonight" featuring Ashley Monroe, by performing it on the latest episode of the reality competition and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'.

The single is lifted from his latest studio album, 'Bringing Back the Sunshine', and stands as the highlight of an otherwise disappointing set. Watch both of their performances beneath:

Video: K. Michelle - 'Something About The Night'

R&B songstress K. Michelle pays homage to legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday in the 1920s-themed music video for "Something About the Night", one of the songs featured on her stellar sophomore album 'Anybody Want To Buy A Heart?'.

The video, which was directed by Child Basquiat, also seems to pull from Holiday's real life as it showcases the singer dealing with alcohol addiction (Holiday was addicted to heroine) and allows Michelle to show off her abilities (or lack thereof) as an actress. Watch it beneath:

Taylor Swift Crowned As Billboard's Woman Of The Year

Taylor Swift : Billboard Woman of the Year 2014 photo taylor-swift-billboard-magazine-woman-of-the-year-issue-december-2014_2.jpg

Capping off a super successful year, Taylor Swift graces the cover of December 13th issue of Billboard magazine as their Woman of the Year, where she dishes on taking a big risky move by switching genres and how some doubted that she could do it successful.

"Everyone, in and out of the music business, kept telling me that my opinion and my viewpoint was naive and overly optimistic -- even my own label," says Swift, recalling the run-up to 1989's October release in the vast living room of her penthouse loft in downtown Manhattan. "But when we got those first-day numbers in, all of a sudden, I didn't look so naive anymore."

No offense, but it is a lot easier to switch to the pop genre when you have been making pop music the entire time and simply labeling it as country. Nonetheless, she looks beautiful here.
