This music video is finally here!

After releasing many behind-the-scenes pictures, stunning cover art and lyric video, Jennifer Lopez is treating fans to the official music video for “Ni Tú Ni Yo” (feat. Gente de Zona).

The video is set in South Florida with a 1970s vibe. Jennifer is introduced to Khotan Fernandez(the photographer), by none other than, the singer’s ex-husband Marc Anthony. As they begin the photo shoot, they start realizing they are falling, unexpectedly, in love with each other. True to J.Lo’s classic style and the theme of the video, we see the star in numerous, epic wardrobe changes.

The music video, directed by Emil Nava, was filmed last month in Isla Morada, Florida.

Stranger Things Gets Season 2 Premiere Date

0

Your Halloween just got way, way spookier. In a long-awaited confirmation, Netflix announced on Tuesday (July 11) that its smash paranormal thriller Stranger Thingswill be back in October. The news came via a tweet with a 25-second trailer that had just small glimpses of the show’s youthful cast, but plenty of the signature spine-tingling score.

The clip opens with a shot of a yellow road line with the year 1984 superimposed in the Stranger font, with the neon numbers quickly blinking out as a trio of BMX bikes ride over the line and the words “Only Gets Stranger” flicker into view.

With ominous, lightning-filled skies crackling above, the teaser ends with the words “Welcome to Hawkins” and the Oct. 27 return date.

As part of the announcement, Netflix provided the following timeline for the show’s dramatic arc:

1953, date unknown – MKUltra comes to Hawkins and begins experimentation

1979 – Police Chief Jim Hopper returns to Hawkins

1983, November 6 – The vanishing of Will Byers

1983, November 8 – The vanishing of Barbara Holland

2016, July 15 – Part 1

2017, October 27 – Part 2

The official season 2 description says it all, setting up some of the drama in the official show poster. “It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demagorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

A 10-second trailer revealed at San Diego Comic-Con last month with the ominous promise, “a year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.” The show’s stars are seen rocking era-appropriate Ghostbuster costumes and a strange, spider-like monster looms on the horizon.

Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of Austin, Texas, instrumental rockers S U R V I V E will once again provide the soundtrack to the show. Their spine-tingling compositions were compiled on two volumes of Stranger soundtracks released last year and the Dixon told Billboard in May “I don’t think we’ve gotten a ‘no’ yet this season,” speaking about their collaboration with the show’s creators the Duffer Brothers. “That did happen last season. I guess it’s getting easier once we’ve gotten over the initial learning stage.”

The pair could not talk about any specifics, though they did say to expect more synth-driven music on the second go-round. They did reveal that they were having fun writing for some new characters who are visiting Hawkins, Indiana, during the upcoming season, including Max, a 13-year old girl, and veteran comedic actor Paul Reiser, who joins the cast as a scientist. “It doesn’t seem necessary to have a strong theme for someone when they walk into the room,” Dixon said. “It’s more of a tone or a mood.”

Demi Lovato Was ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ At Listening Party in LA

0

After a half an hour of waiting outside Break Room 86, an intimate cocktail lounge tucked discreetly within Central Los Angeles’s Koreatown, the Lovatics are growing restless. And the crew knows it.

It’s the “Lovatics First Listen Party” for Demi Lovato’s newly released single “Sorry Not Sorry” — which took place Monday night (July 10) just hours before Lovato dropped the song at midnight — but Lovato has yet to be seen. Anxious teenagers and young adults, wearing skinny jeans and floral prints and baseball caps emblazoned with “Confident,” occupy themselves by Snapchatting selfies using the custom event sticker. They sip drinks and take pictures of the lounge’s cassette-tape and vintage TV-tiled walls, ignoring the occasional jostle caused by a crew member scrambling through the crowd.

“We’re about to go, we’re about to go,” one crew member exclaims, pushing past a girl in a white sequin dress, an inexplicably tiny backpack strapped around her shoulders. “He’s ready, we’re about to go,” he repeats, and suddenly, the lights to the small bar stage come on, and the crowd looks up to see Marshmello.

For a minute there’s silence as the DJ seems to fiddle with his equipment. “Maybe we went too soon,” one crew member whispers. But then, the helmeted enigma begins to play, and the crowd begins to bop along, albeit reservedly.

Break Room 86 is small, so when Lovato does enter the venue it’s through a narrow gap in the fans eagerly awaiting her. Still, she manages to slip in almost unnoticed, flanked by the members of her entourage and camouflaged in dark eye makeup and an oversized flannel. Offstage, she could be just one of the many long-haired girls in fashionable, but casual, concert-wear.

But when the former Disney Channel actress does take the magenta-lit stage, it’s her voice — uniquely powerful and fragile, pitch-perfect and trembling — that reminds the audience just why she is the pop star she is today. Opening with “Confident” and “Cool for the Summer,” Lovato at first seems a little unsteady, until she appears to recognize a familiar face in the crowd. She grins immediately, points at the unidentified acquaintance, and her slightly-wavering voice kicks into high gear, mirrored by two back-up singers in matching black tank tops and chokers.

While the occasion was definitely focused on the music, Lovato did take the opportunity to joke, teasing that she had a “surprise” for the audience: “I’m getting naked!” The “Skyscraper” singer did not, in fact, strip — the surprise was a guest appearance by electronic DJ trio Cheat Codes, to perform their Billboard Hot 100 hit “No Promises.”

The finale was, of course, the first live performance of “Sorry Not Sorry.” According to Lovato, she’d only just rehearsed the single for the first time that day, yet her delivery was almost seamless, both sultry and energetic and consistently on-key. She seemed the most herself during this performance than any other, visibly relaxed and comfortable on the small stage as she belted into the microphone and twisted her hips to the beat.

When the single drew to a close, Lovato thanked the applausing crowd with a cheerful: “What do you say we dance?” before bouncing into the sea of fans, her location only discernible by the mass of phones periscoping above her.

She “danced” her way through the Lovatics to the door, pausing one last time to wave goodbye before disappearing for the night.
