Se trata de ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’, de Mark Ronson, en la que Cyrus ha colaborado. El videoclip ya está disponible en Youtube y en él, la cantante aparece al volante de un coche durante una persecución policial. La joven se había mantenido al margen de las redes sociales hasta hace poco, lo que hizo pensar en un posible regreso musical que se ha confirmado con esta colaboración.

A nadie le debe extrañar que el popular clásico de terror de Michael Jackson, “Thriller”,haya regresado al Billboard Hot 100 en el nº 31, gracias a las ganancias obtenidas el pasado Halloween.

Según Nielsen Music, “Thriller” se ha vuelto a meter en la lista con 15.000 descargas vendidas, con un incremento de venta del 189% en comparación con la semana anterior, y 15.2 millones de streamings en Estados Unidos, lo que significa un aumento del 198% en la semana que terminó justo el 1 de noviembre. La canción también ha vuelto a las listas de ventas de canciones digitales y a las listas de streaming en los números 11 y 30, respectivamente.Originalmente, en 1984, “Thriller” alcanzó el puesto número 4 en el Hot 100 y volvió a estar presente en esa lista otras tres veces en esa década. Con su nuevo reingreso, el tema alcanza su punto más alto desde el 7 de abril de 1984, cuando se ubicó en el Nº 23.

No es necesario que una canción sea nueva para ser elegible para el Hot 100, aunque la lista suele clasificar, casi exclusivamente, los éxitos actuales a través de una combinación de datos de streaming, airplay (radio, tv) y ventas generales. Las canciones fuera de ciclo de lanzamiento actual pueden volver a la lista si se registran ganancias notables.

Además, el LP “Thriller” ha obtenido el honor de “Greatest Gainer” en la lista de álbumes de Billboard 200, ya que ha subido del nº 102 al nº 42, también gracias a las ganancias generadas por Halloween.

Resultado de imagen de west side story the sound of music

En los 62 años de historia de Billboard 200, solo la banda sonora de “West Side Story” ha pasado más semanas en el número 1 (54 semanas) que “Thriller”. El LP de Jackson se ubica en el tercer lugar de los álbumes Billboard más grandes de todos los tiempos sólo por detrás de “21”de Adele y la banda sonora “The Sound of Music” (“Sonrisas y Lágrimas”).

15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time

0

We don’t talk much about music videos here at The Influencer Marketing Hub. Let’s be honest – they don’t provide much opportunity for influencer marketing unless you have sufficiently deep pockets to pay celebrity prices. Yet you can’t ignore the fact that many people love music videos.

YouTube was created in 2005, with the first video – Me at the Zoo – being uploaded on 23 April 2005. Since then, 1.3 billion people have set up YouTube accounts. In 2018, people watch nearly 5 billion videos each day. People upload 300 hours of video to the site every minute.

According to 2016 research undertaken by Pexeso, music only accounts for 4.3% of YouTube’s content. Yet it makes 11% of the views. Clearly, an awful lot of people watch a comparatively small number of music videos. It should be no surprise, therefore, that the most watched videos of all time on YouTube are predominantly music videos.

Most subscribed channels on the other hand are predominantly gaming channels.

This post looks at the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time. 14 of these videos are music videos. If we were to widen our scope to cover the top 100 YouTube videos, you would find that 95 are music videos. And none of the remaining five come from famous YouTubers, such as PewDiePie.

If you’r einterested to see how much these YouTubers Earn you can have a look at our YouTube Earnings Estimator 

The best-known influencers certainly have popular channels. But most gained their fame by having many people watching a broad range of videos. None of these genuine influencers have one-off videos with world-shattering viewing figures. PewDiePie’s most popular video (Jabba the Hutt) has about 4.4 million views. In comparison, Adele’s Hello (#15 on this list) has had nearly 2.2 billion views.


15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time:


1. Despacito – Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee

Despacito’s rise to the top of this list in 2017, demonstrates two essential points about YouTube. Firstly, it shows that YouTube’s popularity is forever increasing. There was a time when nobody thought that anybody would overtake Gangnam Style.

It also demonstrates how YouTube is now a global phenomenon. Despacito, which is Spanish for “Slowly,” is sung in Spanish by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and also features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee. The music video shows both artists performing the song in La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría.

The song topped the charts of 47 countries and entered the Top 10 in ten others. It was the first song to top the Billboard 100 in Spanish in 20 years.

Interestingly, Justin Bieber released a remix version a few months later, where he sang some lines in English. While this probably helped the original’s YouTube performance, it didn’t overtake it or enter the YouTube Most Viewed charts.

Despacito became the first video on YouTube to achieve the milestones of both three and four billion views. It overtook See You Again to take YouTube’s All-time Number 1 spot in August 2017.


2. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

See You Again held YouTube’s Number One position from July 10 to August 4, 2017, and was the video that finally broke “Gangnam Style’s” hold on the top rank. It was, of course, only 25 days, until Despacito made its charge and overtook See You Again.

The main reason for See You Again’s success was that it was commissioned as the theme for the movie, “Furious 7”. It was written as a tribute to fan-favorite, the late actor Paul Walker.

It is both Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s most successful track to date. The song spent 12 weeks at the top of the US Billboard 100 and reached Number One in a number of other countries.

It also held the record for the most streamed track in a single day on Spotify in the US, as well as records for most streams in a  week worldwide and in the UK.

Overall, See You Again was the best selling song in the world in 2015.


3. Shape of You – Ed  Sheeran

Ed Sheeran had a hugely successful 2017. No matter where you went, there always seemed to be an Ed Sheeran song playing. He even performed a cameo role in an episode of “Game of Thrones.”

He released Shape of You as a digital download on 6 January 2017. He also included it as part of his third studio album.

The song made it to Number 1 on the singles charts of 44 countries. It topped the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 2017. It was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

Ed Sheeran released a lyric video for the song on his channel. People have viewed that version over 750 million times to date. On 30 January 2017, the official video was uploaded to YouTube. The video became one of the fastest videos to reach 1 billion views on YouTube. It achieved this milestone on 8 May 2017, just 97 days after its release.


4. Gangnam Style – Psy

It would be fair to say that Gangnam Style was an unexpected mega-hit, that set records on YouTube, that some people believed would never be bettered.

The video shows Psy poking fun at the style of Seoul’s Gangnam-gu. This is claimed to be, “a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on the high-status lifestyle.”

Psy’s official YouTube account uploaded the video on July 15, 2012. On November 24th that year, Gangnam Style overtook Justin Bieber’s then-record of 803,700,000 views to take the coveted Number 1 spot on YouTube. It stayed in that position for an incredible 1,689 days.

Gangnam Style didn’t take long to take the accolade of being the first video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube, receiving that honor in December 2012. It reached 2 billion views in June 2014, and 3 billion in January 2018.

The video holds a few other YouTube records. It was the most rated video until February 2017, and most liked video until August 2016. Until Adele’s Hello passed it on January 18, 2016, it held the record for the fastest video to reach 1 billion views. It still holds the record for being the most discussed video.


5. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster – Get Movies

This is by far the most unusual video on this list. It is not a music video. It is not an official video (although official copies of this episode do exist on YouTube). And it is in Russian.

This particular video is technically called Маша и Медведь (Masha and The Bear) – Маша плюс каша, as it is a Russian version.

Masha and the Bear is a Russian animated television series, loosely based on an oral children’s folk story. It is a Russian children’s television series, of four series (to date) consisting of 68 episodes. Some episodes of the English-language version are available on Netflix.

All of the episodes have been uploaded to YouTube over time, and three of them have exceeded 1 billion views. There is an official YouTube channel – MashaMedvedTV.

It is thought that one of the reasons for the show’s popularity is that Masha is dressed in a folk costume with a headscarf. Her legs are covered. This has makes the show acceptable to Muslim audiences, including in populous countries, such as Indonesia.

This particular episode, “Recipe for Disaster,” was originally episode number 17. It is episode 7.1 on Netflix (which has combines several of the short Masha and the Bear episodes together).


6. UpTown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

UpTown Funk was recorded by British record producer, Mark Ronson, along with American singer/songwriter, Bruno Mars. It was released as a single on 10 November 2014.

It spent 14 consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the US Billboard 100, and also reached Number 1 in the charts in several other countries.

UpTown Funk became the second best-selling single of 2015. It won two Grammy Awards, including the record of the Year.

The music video was released a week after the single – 17 November 2014. It shows Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, and the Hooligans walking around cities, kitted out in brightly colored suits and chains. It was filmed in a range of cities where Bruno Mars was touring.

The video was almost as popular as the song, gathering more than 2.8 billion views to date.


7. Sorry – Justin Bieber

It should surprise nobody that Justin Bieber has a video on YouTube’s Top 10. He is one of the most visible symbols of the YouTube generation. It is perhaps surprising that he cannot claim more of the videos in this top group, although he does have videos of his songs in positions 23 and 24.

Sorry comes from Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album, “Purpose.” It was released on October 23, 2015. The song topped the charts of 13 countries, including seven weeks in the top spot in Bieber’s native Canada. Globally, people bought more than 10 million copies of the song in 2016.

Unusually, they made the dance video of the song in New Zealand, featuring New Zealand dancers – the ReQuest Dance Crew, and New Zealand choreographer, Parris Goebel. Although this was originally just intended to be a lyric video, it ended up as the main one. It became the fifth fastest YouTube video to reach 1 billion views, and the fourth fasted to reach 2 billion views.


8. Sugar – Maroon 5

Sugar was recorded by Maroon 5 for their fifth studio album, “V.” It was released as a single on January 13, 2015.

It peaked at Number 2 on the US Billboard 100.

The band worked with film director, David Dobkin on the music video. He had previously directed the movie “Wedding Crashers,” and used that as inspiration for this video.

In the video, Maroon 5 crashes weddings across Los Angeles. This is not staged. Maroon 5 has genuinely crashed the weddings shown in the video. In reality, each groom was given some notice and agreed to let an unnamed, but famous band play at their wedding, but nobody else connected with the marriages had advance notice. It must have been a shock to the brides to find Adam Levine serenading them at their weddings.

The production team worked with wedding planners in Los Angeles to find suitable weddings for the video.

The band found it a fantastic experience. They were nervous that they would take attention away from people’s big days. Some of the grooms got cold feet and had to be talked into allowing the activity take place.

Everybody loved the surprise, however. Adam Levine stated, “It was an out of body experience. I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests.”


9. Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recorded Shake it Off as the lead single for her fifth album, “1989”. The song premiered on a Yahoo! Live stream on August 18, 2014. The studio released the video on YouTube and made the song available for digital download on the same day.

Shake it Off is Taylor Swift’s most successful Billboard Hot 100 song to date. It stayed in the chart for 50 consecutive weeks.

Mark Romanek directed the video, and it features dances choreographed by Tyce Diorio. It incorporates dancing in the styles of hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, jazz, and cheerleader – even “twerking.”

If you exclude the cartoon character of Masha, this video holds the record for the most views of a video by a female artist.


10. Bailando – Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona

Bailando is another music video that highlights the international appeal of YouTube.

Spanish singer, Enrique Iglesias, recorded Bailando for his tenth studio album, “Sex and Love” in 2014.

He recorded several versions of the song. The original Spanish version also included vocals by Cubans, Descemer Bueno, and Gente de Zona. A Spanglish version features vocals by Jamaican singer Sean Paul. Enrique Iglesias also recorded two versions in Portuguese (with different people doing the additional vocals) for different markets.

The original Spanish version acts as the theme song for the soap opera Reina de Corazones.

They recorded four music videos– one for each version of the song. They filmed the videos for the Spanish and Spanglish version of the song in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The Spanish version has proven particularly popular, having been viewed more than 2.4 million times. People have also watched the Spanglish version 250 million times.


11. Roar – Katy Perry

Who hasn’t seen the Katy Perry video for Roar, with Katy in her jungle, populated with wild animals?

She released Roar as the lead single for her 2013 album, “Prism” The lyrics focus on standing up for yourself and self-empowerment. The song was a huge success. It was certified as Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), making her the first artist to have three Diamond Awards.

The video tells a (fictional) story of Katy Perry adapting to life in the jungle after surviving a plane crash. She even tames a tiger. It was filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

When Roar reached 1 billion video views on YouTube, in July 2015, Katy Perry became the first artist to have two music videos exceed that milestone.


12. Lean On – Major Lazer and DJ Snake ft. MØ

Lean On comes from Major Lazer’s third album. “Peace is the Mission.” It is a house ballad.

In became the most streamed song of all time on Spotify in November 2015, although Drake’s One Dance overtook it the following year.

The music video for Lean On was directed by Tim Erem and filmed in India. It shows a sequence of Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake performing dance sequences.


13. Hello – Adele

English singer, Adele, released Hello in October 2015 as the lead single from her third album, “25”.

It was successful in many countries, reaching the top position across the world, including in both the UK and USA.

The music video, which stars Adele and Tristan Wilds, was directed by Xavier Dolan. It broke the record for the shortest time to reach 1 billion views on YouTube – 88 days. It currently has over 12 million likes, making it the fifth most liked video on YouTube.


14. Dark Horse – Katy Perry ft. Juicy J

Not to be outdone by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry also features two videos in this list of the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time.

Katy recorded Dark Horse with rapper Juicy J, releasing the song in September 2013.

It combines the genres of trap and hip-hop.

Pepsi used the song in a promotion. Fans could vote on Twitter whether they wanted this song or Walking on Air to be released as the first single from the album, “Prism.”

Dark Horse sold 13.2 million units and was the second-best selling song of 2014.

The video wasn’t released until February 2014. It has an Egyptian setting, where Katy plays “Katy Patra” – her version of the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.

Dark Horse was the first video from a female artist to receive 1 billion views on YouTube.


15. Blank Space – Taylor Swift

Blank Space is Taylor Swift’s second entry on this list. It comes from her fifth studio album, “1989” (as does Shake it Off).

The song was released in November 2014, and within three weeks it topped the US Billboard Hot 100, knocking Shake it Off from that position. Taylor Swift became the first woman in the chart’s history to succeed herself at the top.

Joseph Kahn was asked to direct the video. Taylor Swift liked the idea of portraying herself as a crazy villain in the video. It was partly inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” and constant tabloid gossip about Taylor Swift’s relationships.

Travis Scott y Drake perpetran en ‘Sicko Mode’ una de las idas de olla visuales del año

0

‘Sicko Mode’ es probablemente uno de los singles del año, quizá en todo el mundo y con total seguridad en Estados Unidos, donde sus dos intérpretes principales son enormemente populares. Hablamos, claro, de Drake y Travis Scott, que incluye este tema en ‘Astroworld’, el álbum que publicaba el pasado mes de agosto y que es uno de los discos de rap más importantes de 2018, alcanzando el número 1 directo de Billboard Hot 100 en su semana de lanzamiento y siendo ya certificado disco de platino al superar el millón de unidades vendidas entre formato físico, digital y el equivalente en streaming.

Aunque a este tema aún le queda mucho cacao que tomar hasta alcanzar los más de 430 millones de streamings de ‘Butterfly Effect’, single principal del disco estrenado a finales de 2017, es muy posible que se le acerque gracias al espaldarazo que vivirá con el lanzamiento de su vídeo oficial este fin de semana. Sobre todo porque se trata de una de las mayores idas de olla visuales que podremos ver en Youtube a lo largo de este curso. Es obra de Dave Meyers que, como demostrara con sus últimos trabajos para Ariana Grande y, algo más atrás, en piezas para Kendrick Lamar, no se pone límites a la hora de dar rienda suelta a las ideas más locas.

En este caso, sumerge a los propios Drake y Scott en un mundo que, aunque se parece al real, está completamente distorsionado, como si esa bocaza en la cabeza gigante de Travis que también vemos en la polémica portada de ‘Astroworld’ fuera un portal a una realidad paralela. Una en la que una luna enorme provoca un eclipse que da rienda suelta a imágenes delirantes y repletas de exceso, desde graffitis parlantes a un Scott montando a caballo por el barrio, pasando por una bailarina de twerk en los párpados de Drake o chocantes efectos que hacen aumentar y reducir su tamaño a los raperos o simular que la tierra se inclina.

Swedish House Mafia ‘put the past behind them’ and announce plans to reunite with brand new music in 2019

0

Swedish House Mafia will reunite with brand new music for a special Stockholm show in 2019. The EDM stars – who underwent a farewell tour in 2012 – will be back in their hometown for the first time in over six years when they play the Tele2 Arena on May 4. The exciting announcement comes after the group – made up of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello – appeared at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida earlier this year for a surprise performance, which got fans speculating about a comeback.

Reunion: Swedish House Mafia will reunite with brand new music for a special Stockholm show in 2019 (pictured in New York in 2013)

Reunion: Swedish House Mafia will reunite with brand new music for a special Stockholm show in 2019 (pictured in New York in 2013)The trio will also play ‘never-before-heard’ tunes at the reunion, which will mark only the second time they have taken to the stage in their hometown. During their farewell tour, Swedish House Mafia treated 133,000 fans to three sold-out shows at Friends Arena in Stockholm.

A statement said: ‘That dream of seeing Swedish House Mafia return has become reality as Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello have now chosen to put the past behind them and come together, not just as Swedish House Mafia but as artists, and more importantly as three best friends with a message.’

Speaking earlier this year, Steve revealed: ‘During summer everyone is travelling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more.’

Talented: The EDM stars will be back in their hometown for the first time in over six years when they play the Tele2 Arena on May 4 (pictured in 2012)

Although they haven’t confirmed a release date, it was previously suggested the album could drop in time for a run on the road in 2019. He said of a tour next year: ‘It’s happening, obviously. Not all the details are set, but we will be back in 2019.’

The band’s decision to reunite comes just two years after they said they were happy doing their own thing but were adamant not to rule out a comeback in the future.Axwell explained: ‘I think we’re all in our happy places right now. Having said that it would be stupid of me to say never [to a reunion]. ‘Maybe one day something will happen inside of us that says “boom”. But it’s more [likely to be] coming from us than at a festival.’

Bad Bunny Teams Up With Drake For Reggaeton Banger, “Mia”

0
Bad Bunny has well and truly arrived! The Puerto Rican superstar, who topped the Billboard Hot 100 with a feature on Cardi B’s“I Like It,” teams up with Drake for a new single called “Mia.” And it’s going to be absolutely huge. A hip-swinging reggaeton banger with an instantly catchy chorus, this has all the ingredients for a crossover smash. It also boasts a relaxed street party-themed video, which finds Drizzy emoting by a car and playing a game of dominoes with his new group of friends.

Impressively, Drake sings his part in Spanish and there isn’t the obligatory English-language verse to make the song more appealing to radio programmers. Not that it’s going to need much help. “Mia” is already soaring up iTunes (number 12 and rising fast) and is destined to rack up huge streaming numbers. Throw in Bad Bunny’s popularity on YouTube (the video for “Mayores” has a whopping 1.3 billions views) and the track is all but assured of being a chart monster. Check out the future smash up top.

Madonna & Cardi B Hop On Quavo’s “Champagne Rosé

0
Madonna is hard at work crafting a new studio album. However, the Queen of Pop isn’t leaving us high and dry while we patiently await her glorious return. Instead, she has decided to grace us with a surprising collaboration. Late last night (October 11), the “Hold Tight”siren hopped on a track for Quavo’s debut solo album, QUAVO HUNCHO. The LP gives the Migos rapper an opportunity to flex his creativity in new ways. And it also boasts a star-studded group of collaborators including the likes of Drake, Normani and Cardi B. Unsurprisingly, Madge’s contribution is an absolute highlight.

The living legend and Cardi lend their voices to “Champagne Rosé,” and they undeniably steal the show. “Drink me up, Champagne Rosé. It’s my game,” Madonna chants over frosty beats on the catchy-as-all-hell chorus. Please note her iconic pronunciation. She takes center stage on a verse as well “It’s my game. Please let me entertain you. Get inside your vein, too. Intoxicate your brain,” she coos. It is definitely an unexpected moment from the icon. However, it worms its way in your head. Meanwhile Cardi’s verse is all sorts of shady.

“They say my time is ticking. These hoes is optimistic. Somebody told you not to fuck with me. I would listen,” the “I Like It” rapper cryptically warns. “I don’t do number two. That’s the type of shit I’m on,” she adds. Many are taking this as a dig at Nicki Minaj who debuted at the number 2 spot on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. The pair have some serious beef that recently culminated in a near-fight during New York Fashion Week, and this is going to escalate things.

It may not be “Beautiful Game,” but I can’t help being obsessed with Madonna’s latest experiment. Give the LP a spin here and press play on Madonna’s catchy contribution below.

Most People Don’t Know These Famous Actors Are Also Musicians

0
While most of us are guilty of assuming that a lot of actors just act for a living, that’s not necessarily the case. Some actors are major hobbyists whether it’s sports, making art, writing, and in some cases, making music. Believe it or not, there are a lot of world famous actors that are committed to their music careers when they’re not in front of the camera. While you may never imagine a particular actor singing on stage because of the characters they’ve played, there’s a lot more than you think. So, crank up the volume and discover which famous actors are successful musicians as well.

Can you guess which Mission Impossible actor doubles as a singer-songwriter?

Scarlett Johannson Performed At Coachella

John Shearer/WireImage

Scarlett Johansson has already established herself as an incredibly successful actress starring in films such as Lucy, Her, Lost in Translation, as well as the Avengers. Yet, she shocked her fans and the audience at Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2007 when she performed with The Jesus & Mary Chain. Not long after, in 2008, she released her first album Where I Laid My Head.

Since then, she has been working with singer-songwriter Peter Yorn, as a five-song record titled Apart, which was released in 2018. Just when Johannson’s fans thought she couldn’t get any better, turns out she’s a musician as well.

Bruce Willis

Dusko Despotovic/Sygma via Getty ImagesWhile most people know Bruce Willis as the tough guy in most of his movies, when he’s not beating people to a pulp, he likes to play a little music. Just a year before Die Hard came out, Willis released a soul record titled The Return of Bruno. The album was actually a piece of performance art with “Bruno” being a character of a fake HBO documentary that was supporting Willis’ album.

Surprisingly, the track “Respect Yourself” became a hit and reached No. 5 on the charts. After a follow-up album in 1989, he never recorded again. However, he played a two-hour set with a blues band at B.B. King’s in New York in 2002.

Kevin Costner Is A Country Artist At Heart

Daniel Knighton/Getty ImagesWhen Kevin Costner isn’t in front of the camera, the Oscar-winning Hollywood star performs with his own country rock band, Kevin Costner & Modern West. Since the band’s beginnings in 2007, they have released four albums, with one of them beingFamous for Killing Each Other in2012.

The album peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, pretty impressive for a man who once played Robin Hood on the big screen. However, that isn’t his band’s only success. In 2010, they performed at Nashville’s renowned Grand Ole Opry, something that not everybody gets to do.

Jeremy Renner has A Documentary Coming Out About Being A Musician

Craig Barritt/Getty Images for Remy MartinMuch like Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner is another Avenger that has been known to showcase his musical talents. As well as starring in films such as The Hurt Locker, The Town, and the Mission Impossible series, Renner is also a singer-songwriter. He even has a documentary coming out soon about his career as a musician.

He’s known to take music very seriously, and even incorporates it into his acting methods. He says that he creates a very specific song for each character that he plays to help him fit the mood and get into character.

You’ll never guess the album Ryan Gosling released in 2009.

Zooey Deschanel Is A Musician Almost As Much As She Is An Actor

John Shearer/WireImageKnown for starring in New Girl and numerous films, Zooey Deschanel is a lover of vintage pop music and has been playing with her indie group She & Him since 2008. The band was formed in 2006 when Deschanel met musician M. Ward while making the film The Go-Getter. Since they formed their band, they have released six albums under She & Him, including two Christmas records.

Their cover of “The Last Christmas Waltz” has been described by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest rock and roll Christmas songs ever. The group has also proven successful enough to perform at events such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, and even overseas.

Keanu Reeves Slaps The Bass

Martyn Goodacre/Getty ImagesKeanu Reeves is more than just the action star in films like The Matrix, Point Break, and John Wick. While starting out as a young actor, he was also the bass player for the band Dogstar. The group released two albums between 1996 and 2000 and even took some time in order to tour.

However, there was a rumor going around that he dropped out of the sequel to Speed in order to perform with Dogstar. In 1996, Keanu Reeves put this rumor to rest while giving an interview on CNN. Although Dogstar may no longer be playing as a band, Keanu Reeves is still known to pick up his bass every now and then.

Ryan Gosling Had A Rather Unusual Music Project

Noel Vasquez/Getty ImagesRyan Gosling has been one of Hollywood’s biggest and most adored sweethearts since his breakout role in the 2004 film,The Notebook. On top of being incredibly handsome and a respected actor, in 2009, he was the frontman for a Halloween-themed band called Dead Man’s Bones. The group was formed by Reynolds and his friend and film producer, Zach Shields.

Their first album titled Dead Man’s Bones was released on October 6, 2009 under Anti-Records, featuring a somber children’s choir. Pitchfork described the records as being “a truly unusual and surprising record.” Gosling continued to demonstrate his musical prowess in the film La La Land where he sang, danced, and learned to play the jazz piano in just three months.

Can you guess which Les Misérables actor has had a music career since before they were an actor?

Johnny Depp Already Looks Like A Rock And Roller

LOIC VENANCE/AFP/Getty Images

 

Although it may not come as too much of a shock, Johnny Depp now plays the guitar in a heavy metal rock band super-group called Hollywood Vampires. he plays alongside rock and roll legends Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s guitarist Joe Perry. The band formed in 2015, and have managed to release one album since then. In 2018, the band went on to play at the Grammys and even went on tour in early 2018. Apparently, Johnny Depp is a good enough guitarist that even Joe Perry has asked him from some pointers from time to time.

Steve Martin Is A Banjo Extraordinaire

Scott Legato/Getty ImagesFunnyman Steve Martin is best known for his comedic acting in films such as Father of the Bride, The Pink Panther, The Jerk, and many others. Yet, something he’s equally as passionate about and almost as successful in is playing the banjo and making music. Over the years, Martin has won three Grammys for his various bluegrass project, more Grammys than he’s won for his comedy albums.In 2015, the musical he co-wrote with Edie Brickell debuted on Broadway. To encourage bluegrass artists to keep making music, each year, he gives a generous donation to an up-and-coming bluegrass artist or band.

Russel Crowe Was A Musician Before An Actor

Chris Polk/FilmMagic

While some people might have assumed that Russel Crowe’s role in the musical drama filmLes Misérables was Crowe’s first crack at singing, they would be mistaken. The Gladiator actor began his career in entertainment as a musician before becoming one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In the 1980s, while still living in New Zealand, he played under the name Russ le Roq, where he released his single “I Just Wanna Be Like Marlon Brando.”

In the 90s and into the early 2000s, he performed in the band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts who released three albums before splitting up in 2005. Since then, Crowe has released two single albums and gave his fans a taste of his skills in Les Misérables.

Según ha confirmado la artista británica en Twitter, Dua Lipa presentará esta semana, concretamente el jueves día 6 de septiembre, un nuevo single titulado ‘Electricity’. Se trata de aquella colaboración con dos de los productores más importantes del pop de los últimos años, Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga) y Diplo (Madonna, Beyoncé), que ahora forman un tándem bajo el nombre de Silk City.Como se había contado hace semanas, ‘Electricity’ ha sido además compuesta junto a Romy Madley Croft, de The xx, y Florence Welch, conocida por su proyecto Florence + The Machine. Ronson dijo en una entrevista que esta canción cuenta con “una voz profunda y llena de alma que nos remonta a la época del gospel house”. A priori, eso parece estar en perfecta sintonía estilística con el actual éxito de Dua Lipa, ‘One Kiss‘, también una colaboración, en este caso con Calvin Harris. Ha sido número 1 en la lista de singles de Reino Unido y alcanzó el top 26 de Billboard Hot 100 en EE UU.

‘Electricity’ será el cuarto single de Silk City tras ‘Only Can Get Better‘ (con Daniel Merriweather), ‘Feel About You’ (con Mapei) y ‘Loud’ (con GoldLink y Desiigner). Por el momento no se conoce si Ronson y Diplo piensan reunir esas canciones en un disco. En cuanto a Dua Lipa, aún saborea el éxito de su debut, encumbrado gracias a singles como ‘New Rules’ y ‘IDGAF’. Se especula con su posible aparición en la próxima película de James Bond, algo aún no confirmado.
