Ariana Grande Embraces Serial Monogamy on Single “Thank U, Next”

In the two-and-a-half short months since Ariana Grande released her fourth album, Sweetener, the pop princess broke off her engagement with Pete Davidson and mourned the passing of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. Most artists might lay low in the wake of such loss, but Grande is already working on a new album, reportedly titled Thank U, Next.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Party for One” Is the Self-Love Anthem We Deserve

It’s been over three years since Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion turned the Canadian singer from a one-hit-wonder into a cult pop figure and critical darling. In the intervening years, Jepsen has kept herself busy with film and TV roles—including last year’s Leap!, which featured her song “Cut to the Feeling”—but she finally seems poised to make her official comeback with “Party for One,” the first single from her fourth album.

Mariah Carey Goes “The Distance” on New Track Featuring Ty Dolla $ign

Nearly three decades into her record-shattering career, Mariah Carey knows a thing or two about endurance. It’s almost a full minute into “The Distance,” the latest track from her 15th album, Caution, before the elastic midtempo beat drops, by which point Mariah—ever the over-achiever—has already blown through a cheerleader chant, the first verse, and a pre-chorus.

Barbra Streisand Drags Donald Trump in “Don’t Lie to Me” Music Video

Pop icon and political activist Barbra Streisand takes aim at President Donald Trump in the lyric video for “Don’t Lie to Me,” the first single from her 36th studio album, the pointedly titled Walls. Written and directed by Streisand, the video intersperses lyrics from the song—which include bon mots such as “Why can’t you feel the tears I cried today?/Cried today, cried today”—with scenes of environmental disasters, the March for Our Lives rallies, and protests over Supreme Court Justice, proud beer guzzler, and alleged sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh.

Mariah Carey’s New Single “With You” Is Trifling and Formulaic

Mariah Carey’s New Single “With You” Is Trifling and Formulaic

On the slinky heels of last month’s buzz song “GTFO,” Mariah Carey has released “With You,” the lead single from her first album since 2014’s under-appreciated Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. Neither song sounds like a potential hit, but the former was at least a fresh direction for the singer, due in large part to a sleek sample of Porter Robinson’s EDM track “Goodbye to the World” and Mariah’s nonchalant performance and signature sense of camp. “With You,” on the other hand, doubles down on the formula established by Mariah’s 2005 comeback single “We Belong Together,” which she’s been trying to replicate in one form or another for over a decade.

“No, you’re not gonna get what you need/But, baby, I have what you want,” Robyn sings on “Honey,” the second single from her new album of the same name. It’s an apt opening for the highly anticipated track, which was first teased a year and a half ago during the end credits of an episode of HBO’s Girls and resulted in a viral campaign to #ReleaseHoneyDamnIt. Our ears perked up when we heard the Swedish singer’s unmistakable voice in an advance screener of the final season of the Lena Dunham series, but despite our persistence, the network refused to confirm or deny the song’s existence until the episode aired in March of 2017.

Robyn’s New Single, “Missing U,” Nearly Misses the Mark

Today, Swedish singer Robyn dropped “Missing U,” her first solo single in eight years. Over the last several years, the cult pop star has released a series of collaborative EPs, but the new track is the first official taste of her follow-up to 2010’s Body Talk. (A snippet of another new track, “Honey,” was featured in an episode of the final season of HBO’s Girls last year.)

Ariana Grande Drops Epic Music Video for Feminist Anthem “God Is a Woman”

Just hours after she released “God Is a Woman,” a sultry, subtly reggae-infused slow jam from her forthcoming album Sweetener, Ariana Grande has dropped an epic music video for the single. The clip finds the singer hula-hooping with the Milky Way, fingering the eye of a hurricane, and deflecting misogynist epithets, a visual embodiment of her declaration that “I can be all the things you told me not to be/When you try to come for me, I keep on flourishing/And he sees the universe when I’m in company/It’s all in me.”

Watch the First Trailer for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born

Today, Warner Bros. Pictures premiered the first official trailer for the new remake of A Star Is Born. The film, which marks both the writing and directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper and the first leading role for pop singer Lady Gaga, is an update of a story that’s made its way to the big screen three times before: first in 1937, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March; then in 1954, starring Judy Garland and James Mason; and most recently in 1976, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
