Pop superstar Katy Perry suited up for a high-energy performance of "Part Of Me", at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday (March 31st), where Perry also collected a blimp for Favorite Animated Voice for her work on 'The Smurfs'.

While her energy and the performance set were both commendable, her vocals, on the other hand, were (once again) running behind the action as the superstar completely sounded winded and out of breath by the second verse. Watch below:

One year after releasing the worldwide smash "On the Floor", Jennifer Lopez reunites with Pitbull and producer RedOne on "Dance Again", her new single.

Who says lightning doesn't strike in the same place twice? Although "Dance" is not as lethal as their original outing, it is still very much a monster of a track with a palpitating and infectious aura that is sure to make it a main fixture on stations.

Alabama native Lionel Richie has re-recorded thirteen of his biggest singles as country songs for his new album, 'Tuskegee', and the first video to be released in support of the set is "Endless Love", a record that earned him two Grammy nominations with the iconic Diana Ross in 1982, but now features Shania Twain.

Starting with positives... The video is visually a triumph and Twain looks stunning at 46-years-old. With that said, the remake in no way, shape or form compares to the original with Ross and its mostly due to Twain's flaccid vocals. Watch it below:

Toni Braxton has premiered the video for "I Heart You", the first release from her upcoming studio album 'Heartstrings & Synagogue Vibes', which will also air following the annual sophomore season reunion of 'Braxton Family Values'.

Directed by Bille Woodruff, who has crafted the majority of her videos, the clip is lackluster in every form from the overall look down to Braxton's awful wigs and lack of choreography. That said, the single is still a gem. Watch the visual below:

Rolling Stone - April 2012, Jennifer Lawrence

With 'The Hunger Games' currently dominating the box-office, it should come as no surprise that Jennifer Lawrence covers the April 12 issue of Rolling Stone.

The film took in a staggering $152.5 million over the weekend, which outranks all of the 'Twilight' movies and claims the third-biggest opening weekend of all-time, and having seen the movie, I can honestly say it is a great reflection of the book.

Fortune (2012 Promo), Chris Brown

R&B singer Chris Brown keeps the 'Fortune' train rolling with "Sweet Love", the first of two dual singles that will serve as the next releases from his fifth album.

The song is easily the best offering to surface from the upcoming album thus far, yet it still offers no progression from the singer in the form of its lyrical content or his vocal approach. It is pretty much a 2012 version of his 2008 smash hit "Take You Down", just not nearly as good or memorable. Listen to the single beneath:

Her 'Armor On' set arrived on Itunes today and now, Dawn Richard issues the video for the project's lead release "Bombs" - written and produced by Druski.

The clip is visually stunning (and well thought out), especially when you consider that Richard is an independent artist that doesn't have the funds at her exposal that artists funded by major labels do, yet she delivers a video that is superior to most.

NEW MUSIC: TRINA - 'OUTER SPACE'

Outer Space (Single Cover), Trina

Curvy rapper Trina takes on a new direction to match her new image on "Outer Space", featuring Kid Cadet and Vinny Venditto, from her forthcoming album.

While its hard to blame the veteran for trying to adapt to a sound that is currently dominating the charts, with "Outer Space", she simply comes up empty-handed and its mostly due to her delivery, or better yet, inability to delivery her lines with at a pace that actually coincides with the track, which was produced by Venditto.

As we have seen with the majority of her songs, the beat changes between each track, but Taylor's flow never does and it often makes the songs feel disoriented, an on-going issue that is even more apparent in her latest release. Listen below:

The rapper recently revealed that legal troubles prevented her from releasing a follow-up to her critically-acclaimed studio project, 'The Naked Truth', for which, she famously became the first and only female rapper to earn a 5-mic rating from The Source magazine.

Australian phenomenon Iggy Azalea is out for blood on the T.I.-assisted "Murda Bizness", the lead single from her forthcoming debut album 'The New Classic'.

R&B songstress Toni Braxton teamed up with her mentor Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds for a performance of her 1997 release "How Could An Angel Break My Heart", at their joint concert at Caesar's Palace in Atlantic City on March 24th.

It would be really amazing if the "Unbreak My Heart" beauty would link back up with her mentors (Babyface and L.A Reid) for a new studio album, because she hasn't been able to create the magic alone that they created with first two albums.

Underrated star Ameriie has released a new track in the form of "Every Time", which is the first release from her forthcoming EP, 'The Prelude'. The mini-LP is expected to lead into her fifth studio album 'Cymatika, Vol.1', due later this year.

R&B crooner Trey Songz is looking to cure his broken heart on "Heart Attack", the first single from his upcoming fifth studio set 'Chapter V', due later this year.

Crafted by Benny Blanco and Rico Love, the emotionally-charged song is solid in every aspect (vocals, production, lyrical content), but it simply doesn't register as a strong single release. With that said, Songz deserves props for choosing to switch it up from his usual sex driven records. Take in his new single after the cut:

Pop heartthrob Justin Bieber returns with "Boyfriend", the highly-anticipated first release from his forthcoming studio album 'Believe', due out later this year.

Produced by Mike Posner, the track boasts more of an urban sound as it sees the 18-year-old choosing to rap more than he sings, and while it is a bit of a risk, it is one that pays off beautifully for the star as "Boyfriend" is a certified winner.

Not only is it infectious and destined to be a radio hit, but it accurately blends the two genres and marks a welcomed change from Bieber. Listen to the single below:
