Apple gana un Emmy por Carpool Karaoke

Carpool Karaoke ha pasado a ser un fenómeno de masas es EE.UU. cuandos e emitía en el show de James Corden a convertirse en un fenómeno internacional tras su andadura de la mano de las series originales de Apple. Ahora a la compañía le han reconocido la labor con el programa de música que se emite a través de Apple Music con un Emmy al mejor show en Primetime, el primero en ser concedido a una compañía tecnológica.

Este es un hito más para la compañía, de la que se espera estrene su servicio de streaming próximamente y que más series de producción propia pasen a ser reconocidas entre las mejores del año, como ha venido sucediendo con otros gigantes, entre las que destacan las series de Amazon o Netflix, con la próxima frontera de los Premios Oscar como el mayor reconocimiento que éstas compañía necesitan para ganarse, de una vez por todas, su derecho en la fama de Hollywood. El Primetime Emmy Award es un reconocimiento a los mejores programas de televisión en horario de máxima audiencia en Estados Unidos, un premio muy reñido entre la mayoría de productoras que buscan posicionar su producto como el más importante en dicha categoría.Ahora se abre una oportunidad de oro para todas las compañías que están operando en sus propias plataformas, mientras las operadoras también quieren sumarse a la nueva guerra comercial del contenido. Con el streaming de Disney a la vuelta de la esquina, la llegada de la plataforma de DC y la cada vez mayor centralización de contenido, la carrera no ha hecho más que empezar.

 

Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ Gets Eight-Minute Ovation in Venice Following World Premiere Glitch

0

La irreverente cantante pop Lady Gaga triunfó este viernes en su debut como actriz en el festival de cine Venecia con su brillante interpretación de “A Star Is Born”, un remake del clásico de los años 30.

“Al comienzo de mi carrera en muchas ocasiones no era la mujer más bella de la sala, pero yo sabía que escribía mis propias canciones”, confesó a los periodistas. “Al inicio de mi carrera dije muchas veces que no”, contó la cantante al contrario de la protagonista del filme, que narra su encuentro con un exitoso cantante country con problemas de alcohol.

La historia de una chica “fea” que piensa que su nariz es demasiado grande y se esconde detrás de capas de maquillaje tiene algo de autobiográfico para la estrella estadounidense, quien estaba acompañada por Bradley Cooper, director también del filme.

En la nueva versión del clásico del cine, la cantante retoma el papel inmortalizado por Judy Garland y Barbra Streisand.

Los críticos elogiaron su actuación magnética, su química con Cooper, el actor y exmodelo co-protagonista que debuta como director. Lady Gaga confesó también las presiones que enfrentó para que cambiara. “Hicieron sugerencias hasta sobre cómo debería mirar”, lamentó la diva, que agradeció a un periodista por comparar su nariz con la de otra gran diva, la soprano María Callas.Tuve que ser muy fuerte desde el comienzo de mi carrera”, dijo para rechazar los intentos de la industria de la música para rehacerla.

“Nunca quise ser sexy o como otras mujeres. Quería ser como soy tanto como artista como mujer”, explicó. Gaga, de 32 años, cuyo verdadero nombre es Stefani Germanotta, interpreta a una mesera y cantante italoestadounidense que conoce a una estrella de la música country en un drag club en el que interpreta “La Vie en Rose” de Edith Piaf.

La energía estalla y pronto esa extraña pareja es todo un fuego romántico y musical.Gaga, que llegó en medio de los truenos por una sorprendente lluvia en Venecia, confesó que su mayor temor era “estar al desnudo, ser vulnerable” frente a la pantalla.

12 Iconic Music Videos by VMA Vanguard Jennifer Lopez

0

It’s been over 20 years since Jennifer Lopez first appeared as a fly girl on In Living Color, and began her ascent to superstardom. In a career that’s exploded since then, the world famous triple threat has finessed the worlds of music, film and television with unmatched ease. As the 2018 recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, she’ll be performing live from Radio City Music Hall for an epic return to the VMA stage since last performing in 2001. Joining the likes of Madonna, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Kanye West, to name a few, the honor marks two decades of excellent work from the woman who introduced the “Glow.”

An old-school entertainer with new-school energy, J.Lo has kept a clipping pace after the legendary artists that inspired her career. Coming up in the golden era of music videos, the honor is a worthy one for the show business veteran. Her video contributions only scratch the surface of an immense cultural impact she’s had with an empire that continues to flourish.

The ultimate beauty icon, Lopez has never met a red carpet she didn’t like or missed a chance to reach the masses on the silver screen, the small screen and pretty much any screen. Her perennial glamour and raw talent are encapsulated best in the music videos throughout her career. Here’s a look at some of the most important moments in her long videography.

​(1999) “If You Had My Love” directed by Paul Hunter

In her first video and single from the debut album, On The 6, Jennifer Lopez turns us onto her talents via a low-fi livestream concept that would cement her status as a rising star. Broadcasting for a group of Internet fans and voyeurs, the diva jumps out here for a breakdown of things to come. All the important elements of a J.Lo video are on display. Rocking sexy, minimal looks like a white triangle bikini top with cargo pants and slaying a salsa dance break in silver chainmail, the video defines a style for the triple threat that holds up today. Successfully crossing her over to music, the song went straight to number one and earned her some Video Music Award nominations, as well.

(1999) “Waiting For Tonight” directed by Francis Lawrence

In one of her most memorable videos, Jennifer Lopez welcomes the new millennium at a rave in the rainforest. Serving up another round of astounding looks and strong dance moves, Lopez catches the strobe light with a body covered in crystals and dances in a waterfall. The Latin house track oozes anticipation and remains a stand out in her singing career. It even earned her a Grammy nomination and the occasion to don that iconic green Versace dress.

(2000) “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” directed by Paul Hunter

With the release of her second album, J.Lo, the singer takes on her megastar moniker and puts out another classic video with “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” In a bold proclamation of her values, we see J.Lo take off in a convertible fleeing the mansion where she’s been disappointed yet again by an absent lover trying to buy her affection. The beauty tears down a freeway, stripping off gold aviators and pieces of jewelry in the wind with abandon. Coming through with a strong hip-hop dance break before a green screen sunset, she rocks braids and a crystal-encrusted J.Lo tank — iconic. She also dances alongside Cris Judd in the video, who she later married and divorced, to public dismay.

(2001) “Play” directed by Francis Lawrence

In another out of this world visual, J.Lo takes off on a intergalactic flight, truly taking the glam to new altitudes. In the mostly computer-generated video, the diva’s quest to hear her favorite song amounts to a raging dance party and some breathtaking looks. Naturally, the sky high disco soars off into several dance breaks and J.Lo at the controls, fulfilling for the listener what the DJ can’t seem to manage. The visual reaches a peak level when Jenny asks, ” I just wanna dance, is that a crime? Alright then.” Extra points here for the runway ready looks.

(2001) “I’m Real” (remix) feat. Ja Rule directed by Dave Meyers

In the buttery smooth remix to her own song featuring Ja Rule, the “I’m Real” video stands out as another moment to capsule for the singer. In an attempt to strip back the major glow she came to be known for, this video portrays Lopez leaning on the front gate of a house in the Bronx and carrying on at the basketball court. Clad in a juicy sweat suit, gold hoops, classic Adidas and slick baby hairs, the look alone makes this city landscape portraiture all the more gratifying. It’s the balance she achieves between mega star and around-the-way girl that makes this a standout moment in her videography.

(2002) “Jenny From The Block” directed Francis Lawrence

In one of the biggest songs of her career released at the height of tabloid culture, Jennifer Lopez returned to themes of surveillance and celebrity with the iconic “Jenny From The Block.” In a montage of beautifully captured snapshots from yachts, balconies and street performances of the song, Lopez attests, again, that she’s the same girl from the Bronx. With its old school samplings setting the soundtrack for the original “Bennifer,” this video addresses public discourse while making way for more to be had — and it’s still something to talk about. This video also coincides with the smash hit that was Maid in Manhattan, giving J.Lo the distinct honor of having a number one song and movie simultaneously.

(2002) “All I Have” feat. LL Cool J directed Dave Meyers

A single digitized snowflake falls all the way down onto J.Lo in the opening shot of this epic collaboration with LL Cool J. Serving up a series of looks that are downright icy, this stands the tests of time as an instant classic for the artists. The two portray their melodramatic romance and its demise in the breakup ballad. In yet another iconic look, Lopez braves the blizzard in a pink, fur-hooded coat dress with bare legs and pigtails. Cold as it may be, the two keep it really hot: cooing their regrets over a failed relationship and recalling better days. Their romance may not have worked, but the video stands out as a fan favorite and a source of inspiration whenever it snows.

(2003) “I’m Glad” directed by David LaChappelle

In collaboration with the legendary photographer, David LaChapelle, the video for “I’m Glad” showcases Lopez’s talents as a dancer and an actress. In the creative reinterpretation of the movie Flashdance, the singer serves welder, aspiring dancer and exotic performer in the span of the video and shows off some impressive choreography. The video is another epic display of her talents and a beautifully filmed with the legendary LaChapelle.

(2011) “On the Floor” feat. Pitbull directed by TAJ Stansberry

When this song was released in 2011, J.Lo had been out of the music game a moment and started her family with then husband, Marc Anthony. This collaboration with Pitbull marked a return to form for Lopez, who mobilizes a massive club crowd in this high energy video. Putting her famous moves on display here again, the song became one of the best-selling singles of all time and reached a billion views on Youtube.

(2014) “I Luh Ya Papi” feat. French Montana directed by Jessy Terrero

In the sexy update to her most classic video tropes, J.Lo takes an opportunity with this catchy love bop to reinstate her most iconic moments in this video. In a play on Jay-Z’s historic “Big Pimpin” video, Lopez and her girl gang are flanked by male models in speedos by the pool and on a yacht. In a jumpsuit fashioned after the green Versace gown we’ve come to love, she keeps up her own pace with a high-energy dance break and a rolodex of some more signature looks.

(2014) “Booty” feat. Iggy Azalea directed Hype Williams

There’s nothing subtle about the video for a collaboration with Iggy Azalea, nor should there be. In the hyperactive visual display, J.Lo puts her booty on full blast. The draw here is an obvious one for a culture obsessed with ass and, as an originator of the craze, J.Lo doesn’t disappoint. The pace is unrelenting here, as the ladies serve it up cheek to cheek in swimsuits before the eventual dance break.

(2018) “El Anillo” directed by Santiago Salviche

In her most evolved form, J.Lo appears here in the Game of Thrones-esque treatment, where all the world’s queens gather at her throne for the impending ceremony surrounding what translates to “the ring.” One half of the entertainment power couple, J.Rod, Lopez begs the question of marriage in the stunning visual feat. Decked out in queenly couture and dripping in jewels for a splashing dance sequence, the diva maintains her relentless starpower and has racked up more than 180 million views since the video’s release.

Drake Dethrones Drake Atop Billboard Hot 100 as ‘In My Feelings’ Replaces ‘Nice for What’ at No. 1

0

6 God: Drake notches his sixth Hot 100 No. 1, passing Diddy, Eminem and Ludacris for the most among rappers.

Drake replaces himself atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated July 21), as the viral challenge-fueled “In My Feelings” blasts from No. 6 to No. 1, supplanting his own “Nice for What.” Both songs, which also surge to the top of the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts, are from his LP Scorpion, which spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Meanwhile, Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s former Hot 100 No. 1 “I Like It,” now at No. 2, takes over atop the Radio Songs ranking and Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up reaches the Hot 100’s top five.

Let’s run down the top 10 on the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (July 17).

Challenge met: “Feelings,” released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records and the 1,077th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history (which dates to Aug. 4, 1958), soars to No. 1 on the Hot 100 as it likewise leaps to the top of Streaming Songs, rising 2-1 with 71.7 million U.S. streams, up 58 percent, in the week ending July 12, according to Nielsen Music. It also blasts 9-1 on Digital Song Sales with 89,000 downloads sold, up 337 percent, in the same tracking week. On Radio Songs, the track is the highest debut, at No. 29, with 36.5 million audience impressions, up 239 percent, in the week ending July 15.

“Feelings” is the Hot 100’s top gainer in streaming, sales and airplay, marking the first song to sweep all three honors at No. 1 since Drake’s own “God’s Plan,” which tripled up on March 3 following the arrival of its official video.

Helping power the advances of “Feelings” is the “In My Feelings” challenge. Last Wednesday (July 10), Instagram comedian Shiggy, the creator of The Shiggy dance craze, which synchs to Drake lyrics, posted a video of Drake deftly performing the routine onstage. Since the dance’s inception, such stars as Will Smith, Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson, Kevin Hart and Odell Beckham Jr. have all taken on the challenge.

Drake dethrones Drake: As “Feelings” replaces “Nice” atop the Hot 100, Drake is the first artist to dethrone himself at the summit since…Drake. On the April 21-dated chart, “Nice” debuted at No. 1, ending the reign of his “Plan.” Drake joins only Justin Bieber, Usher and the Beatles in having swapped titles atop the tally twice.

The 6 God’s record-breaking 6th Hot 100 No. 1, the most among rappers: Drake tallies his sixth Hot 100 leader with “Feelings,” which follows “Nice” (eight total weeks at No. 1), “Plan” (11 weeks), “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla (10 weeks, 2016), and his first two toppers as featured on Rihanna hits: “Work” (nine weeks, 2016) and “What’s My Name?” (one week, 2010).

Now with six Hot 100 No. 1s, Drake passes Diddy, Eminem and Ludacris, each with five, for the most among rappers.

Third No. 1 from ‘Scorpion’: “Feelings” follows “Nice” and “Plan” as the third Hot 100 No. 1 from Scorpion. The set is the first album to generate three leaders on the list since Bieber’s Purpose, which yielded “What Do You Mean?,” “Sorry” and “Love Yourself” in 2015-16.

Third No. 1 of 2018: With “Feelings” joining “Nice” and “Plan” in topping the Hot 100 in 2018, Drake is the first artist with three leaders in the same year since Katy Perry, whose “California Gurls” (featuring Snoop Dogg), “Teenage Dream” and “Firework” (all from Perry’s album Teenage Dream) all reigned in 2010. Drake is the first male to earn the honor since Usher rolled up four No. 1s in 2004 (all from his Confessions LP): “Yeah!” (featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris), “Burn,” “Confessions Part II” and “My Boo” (with Alicia Keys).

40th total week at No. 1: Drake posts his 40th career week at No. 1 on the Hot 100. He’s the seventh act to reach the milestone, following Mariah Carey (79 weeks), Rihanna (60), the Beatles (59), Boyz II Men (50), Usher (47) and Beyoncé (42).

Seven weeks, seven Hot 100 No. 1s: The past seven weeks, including the latest, July 21-dated Hot 100, have encompassed different No. 1s (including songs returning to the top) week-over-week, marking the longest streak of such turnover since late 2010. Notably, each stretch has included Drake:

June 9, 2018, “Nice for What,” Drake
June 16, 2018, “Psycho,” Post Malone feat. Ty Dolla $ign
June 23, 2018, “Nice for What,” Drake
June 30, 2018, “Sad!,” XXXTentacion
July 7, 2018, “I Like It,” Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin
July 14, 2018, “Nice for What,” Drake
July 21, 2018, “In My Feelings,” Drake

Nov. 6, 2010, “Like a G6,” Far*East Movement feat. Cataracs & Dev
Nov. 13, 2010, “We R Who We R,” Ke$ha
Nov. 20, 2010, “What’s My Name?,” Rihanna feat. Drake
Nov. 27, 2010, “Like a G6,” Far*East Movement feat. Cataracs & Dev
Dec. 4, 2010, “Only Girl (In the World),” Rihanna
Dec. 11, 2010, “Raise Your Glass,” P!nk
Dec. 18, 2010, “Firework,” Katy Perry

Rap’s record reign: Rap songs have now led the Hot 100 for a record-extending 25 consecutive weeks. The streak has comprised Drake’s “Plan” (for 11 weeks) and “Nice” (eight); Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” (two); Post Malone’s “Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign (one); XXXTentacion’s “Sad!” (one); Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It” (one); and now Drake’s “Feelings.”

treaming and sales champ: “Feelings” is Drake’s record-extending seventh Streaming Songs No. 1; Bieber ranks second with four. Drake adds his 10th Digital Song Sales No. 1, pushing him past Eminem for the most among male acts; overall, Drake ranks fourth on the sales tally, after Taylor Swift (15 No. 1s), Rihanna (14) and Perry (11).

No. 1 in R&B/hip-hop: “Feelings” concurrently climbs to No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts. Drake collects his 19th No. 1 on the former survey, moving to within one of Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder’s record 20 each, and his record-extending 20th No. 1 on the latter list.

Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It” rebounds 3-2 on the Hot 100 after topping the July 7-dated chart. On Radio Songs, it blasts 6-1 (102.7 million in audience, up 15 percent). Cardi B earns her second Radio Songs No. 1, after “Finesse,” with Bruno Mars, which led for four weeks beginning in March. Bad Bunny and Balvin each notch their first leader non the survey.

“Like” makes the greatest positional leap to No. 1 on Radio Songs since Adele’s “Hello,” which also vaulted 6-1 on Nov. 28, 2015. JAY-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” made the same jump exactly six years earlier (Nov. 28, 2009), while one song has sprung even farther: Kanye West’s “Stronger” pounced 7-1 on Oct. 6, 2007.

“Like” additionally spends its first week atop the Songs of the Summer chart, which ranks the top-performing titles on the Hot 100 between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The song supplants Drake’s “Nice” after four weeks in the lead.

Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” featuring Cardi B, hits a new Hot 100 high, rising 5-3, while Drake’s “Nice” drops 1-4.

A week ago (on the July 14-dated Hot 100), Drake logged a record seven songs in the top 10 simultaneously, concurrent with the chart arrival of Scorpion. This week, four of those titles depart the top 10, making for notable positional leaps in the region. Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” ascends to the top five, hitting a new peak (11-5), as it leads the Hot R&B Songs chart for an eighth week. Helping its ascent is its new remix with Nicki Minaj and Quavo, released July 4. Mai’s breakout hit darts 7-4 on Digital Song Sales (27,000, up 29 percent); 21-8 on Streaming Songs (32.9 million, up 5 percent); and 14-12 on Radio Songs (68.9 million, up 12 percent).

Juice WRLD’s No. 3-peaking “Lucid Dreams” rebounds 16-7 on the Hot 100 and Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry” hikes 15-8, after reaching No. 3 upon its entrance (May 5), while becoming her third No. 1 on the Pop Songs chart.

Janet Jackson, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera con Demi Lovato… entre las actuaciones destacadas de los Billboard Awards

0

Janet Jackson actuó, como estaba previsto, en los Premios Billboard para recibir el “Icon Award”, con el que se rinde homenaje a las cuatro décadas que lleva en el mundo musical. La cantante fue presentada por Bruno Mars y realizó un discurso en el que recordó que “las mujeres han dejado claro que no serán controladas, manipuladas ni sufrirán abusos nunca más”. También mencionó varias veces la importancia de creer en Dios. A su salida, a duras penas podía hablar entre gritos de “Janet, Janet, Janet”. La cantante también interpretó sus éxitos ‘Nasty’, ‘If’ y ‘Throb’.

The Chainsmokers y Halsey tuvieron unas palabras de cariño y recuerdo para Avicii, reflexionando sobre la importancia de tratar los problemas mentales. También actuaron en la ceremonia Ariana Grande interpretando ‘No Tears Left to Cry’, Kelly Clarkson, Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendes, Khalid, John Legend, Christina Aguilera con Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez con DJ Khaled, Macklemore con Kesha, Camila Cabello con Pharell o Salt-N-Pepa con En Vogue. Los vídeos de las actuaciones no se están subiendo oficialmente a Youtube, al menos por el momento, pero algunos seguidores sí los están compartiendo.

Entre los grandes ganadores de la noche, donde se premia lo más vendido del año, no había mucho misterio y Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Drake, Kendrick Lamar con ‘DAMN.’ y ‘Despacito’ acapararon los principales premios. El palmarés se puede encontrar actualizado en la Wikipedia.
