Coming Soon: Nick Jonas Announces New Single “Find You”

0

Nick Jonas will introduce his third solo LP with the unveiling of a new single titled “Find You.” Yesterday (September 11), all the signs were pointing to an imminent release. The 24-year-old swapped out photos on his social media accounts to a mysterious picture of a sand dune. Later, he confirmed that a new song was on the way and revealed what is largely believed to be the single cover.

Today, Nick continued to share photos from the shoot on his accounts, and he announced that the single is dropping Thursday, September 14. Fans were quick to point out that the singer may have performed the track during an iHeartRadio event in New York City last month. Some low quality footage surfaced from the performance, and the track sounds like a bop. It is also possible that all the photos he has been sharing are from a music video for the single. The release is two days before his 25th birthday, which could signify a new beginning for the promising hitmaker.

After a solid start with his self titled solo debut in 2014, Nick has struggled to truly gain a foothold in the industry. Brooding singles “Jealous” and “Chains” were certified bops, but he moved in a different direction for his 2016 effort on Last Year Was Complicated. The Tove Lo-assisted lead single “Close” was a solid hit, which helped the album debut at number 2 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, but further singles from the album failed to make an impact.

“Find You” sounds like it could be a return to form for the crooner and could be the hit that he needs to get back on track. Check out some new promotional pics below.

Jessie J Announces New Project ‘R.O.S.E.’ In Long & Emotional Video

0

Jessie J revealed that she’s releasing a new project called R.O.S.E. (it stands for Realizations, Obsessions, Sex and Empowerment) in a sprawling video. Seriously, this thing feels longer Interstellar. “I tried to stop and I didn’t know how to because it’s impossible to walk away from true love. Art, emotion, lyrics, music, feeling is what I need to survive,” the Brit says of her self-imposed exile from the music industry while walking serenely through a wheat field. “I don’t do this because I want to do it, I do it because I have to.”

“I lost my passion to create, to draw a line between business and art,” she continues, referring to 2014’s underwhelming and impersonal Sweet Talker. “I’d fallen into darkness and allowed myself to be led by fear. The fear was keeping other people happy who didn’t ever care about me and I was running deeper into something and someone I wasn’t.” Jessie clearly read every self-help book in the library because she came to some very zen conclusions. “The music I said I didn’t want to make is what brought me back to life,” she muses.

“The anger, the honest, the heartache, the pain, the joy, the strength, the love, it all happened for a reason.” Towards the end of the visual, which includes more posing than a season of America’s Next Top Model, she finally mentions R.O.S.E.. “For each letter there is a word and for each word there’s a song I will share with you,” the “Bang Bang” diva elaborates. “I’m strong enough now to let you in, to be real and to be free. A rose is at it’s most beautiful when it’s budding new. I rose above the pain.” Ok, hun. That’s enough.

From the video, it sounds like R.O.S.E. might be a four-track EP, however, she refers to it as an album on her Instagram. Jessie previously revealed that her new music was exclusively produced by DJ Camper and was a return to the sound of her debut album. “From the ages 25-30, you learn so much and grow as a person. You become who you’re going to be for a long time. I’ve also enjoyed the process of just getting back to songwriting on my own,” she told Billboard. “It’s a piece of music as opposed to singles and album fillers.”

Lady Gaga Opens Up About Her Struggles with Pain Disorder Fibromyalgia

0

Lady Gaga reveals fibromyalgia as the source of her chronic pain in her upcoming Netflix documentary, wishing to increase visibility those also suffering from the chronic pain disorder.

Prior to the Sept. 22 release of her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, the singer took to social media to open up to fans about her struggle with the often debilitating disease. «In our documentary the #chronicillness #chronicpain I deal w/ is #Fibromyalgia I wish to help raise awareness & connect people who have it.»

According to Mayo Clinic, fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes characterized by extensive muscle pain, accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. While Gaga has spoken publicly about her struggles with chronic pain before, this is the first time she has given a name to the ailment. In 2016, Gaga voiced her frustration in an Instagram post, saying, “Having a frustrating day with chronic pain, but I find myself feeling so blessed to have such strong intelligent female doctors.”

On Twitter fans were not only empathetic, but clearly thankful for the honest portrayal of the struggles of chronic pain from the pop star. Many Little Monsters immediately shared with the singer that they too suffer from fibromyalgia, opening a warm dialogue of support. Gaga later replied with her own home remedies for the pain, and with her wish to keep the discussion going

While not cited until now, Gaga’s admission of her disorder explains further the extent of the pain in her life and its apparent impact on her career. Back in 2013, Gaga cancelled the remainder of her Born This Way Ball after a labral tear in her right hip became too painful to keep going. At the time, Gaga took to her website to give an explanation to her fans, noting that she’d been nursing show injury and chronic pain for quite some time, adding that after the final performance she had been unable to walk.

The depiction of Gaga’s chronic pain in her new film gives a brutally honest look at the toll that performing can take on the body, but also Gaga’s incredible drive to continue to push forward and release the next bigger, better thing into the world. Let’s not forget, roof jumps and dramatic choreography are not exactly easy even without chronic pain.

Gaga: Five Foot Two will be available to stream on Netflix on Sept. 22.

Fergie & Nicki Minaj’s Sleek & Sexy “You Already Know” Video

0

Just when I thought Fergie’s Double Dutchess campaign was a lost cause, the “Glamorous” legend stepped up the promo with an onslaught on videos and two massive bops. While “Hungry” is more of a mood-setter, “You Already Know” seems to be the 42-year-old best chance of landing an era-saving hit. A pop/rap collaboration with Nicki Minaj, the hook-filled anthem was heavily inspired by ’90s house (it’s basically a modern update of “It Takes Two” by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock) and has the kind of chorus that weasels its way into your brain and refuses to leave.

It also got off to a good start on iTunes and was warmly received on social media. Time will tell if it connects at radio, but the just-released video should add to its momentum. The black-and-white spectacle, which was directed by Brazilian artist Bruno Ilogti, is sleek and sexy. Fergie serves serious looks while partaking in games like chess and ping pong. Her collaborator makes a cameo and they both strike provocative poses in skimpy outfits. It looks expensive and has all the ingredients to go viral. Watch it up top.

bout to break out of my cage 🦁🦁
