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.

Patrick Leonard Launches Kickstarter for New Album of Madonna Songs

Earlier this year, Slant exclusively revealed that veteran songwriter/producer Patrick Leonard is recording his first album in over 20 years—a collection of reimagined versions of songs he wrote with Madonna in the 1980s and ’90s as well as a brand new song composed by Leonard. Titled Bring the Circus Home, the album will feature many of the original musicians who performed on some of the queen of pop’s iconic hits, including guitarist Bruce Gaitsch and bassist Guy Pratt.

Yes, those really are Azealia Banks’s nipples. At least according to the New York singer-rapper-lightning-rod’s Twitter. The music video for Banks’s single “Anna Wintour,” from her forthcoming album Fantasea II, is already going viral, but the clip is striking not just because of the artist’s ample bosom.

Directed by Matt Sukkar, “Anna Wintour” was filmed in an empty warehouse using understated faux-natural lighting. Shots of a scantily clad Banks strutting on a metal catwalk, posing in a full-length mirror, and striking a pose in front of a backlit gate pay homage to Janet Jackson’s iconic video for her 1987 single “The Pleasure Principle.”

Two decades after the late-’90s Latin-pop wave that helped make Jennifer Lopez a household name, the genre has become a fully integrated force in mainstream pop. Lopez’s new bilingual single, “Dinero,” smartly leverages both the singer’s enduring Spanish-language audience and the current Latin-pop craze. Produced by DJ Khaled, the track features J. Lo alternately singing over a tropical rhythm and rapping atop a trap beat—sometimes both—while fellow Bronx upstart Cardi B boasts of their borough-based bona fides.

The music video for “On Columbine,” a track from the star-studded concept album Guns: The Album, made its online premiere last March but understandably got lost in the flurry of media attention surrounding the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and the historic March for Our Lives demonstrations that followed. The song, featuring singer-songwriter Claudio Parrone Jr., and its accompanying video are moving meditations on America’s school shooting epidemic, featuring clips of three of the last four U.S. presidents lamenting the lives lost to gun violence (Donald Trump, meanwhile, can be heard, in a speech at the NRA last year, declaring an end to the “assault” on the Second Amendment).

Christina Aguilera kicked off her recent media blitz for her upcoming album, Liberation, with a striking photo spread in the latest issue of Paper magazine. Stripped of her usual heavy makeup and bleached-bombshell waves, the naturally freckled pop singer was nearly unrecognizable. “Accelerate,” the lead single from the album, is similarly barebones. For a track audaciously titled “Accelerate,” it never really takes off, even when Aguilera begs, “Come on, babe, pick up your speed.” And that’s by design.

Madonna’s done it all. And we’ve pretty much covered it all. So when we sat down to decide the best way to celebrate the anniversary of Madonna’s debut album, released in 1983, we elected to dig up some of the forgotten or unheralded gems scattered liberally throughout her three-decade-spanning catalogue rather than predictably rank her best albums, singles, or videos—which we’ve more or less done on various other lists over the years anyway. With the exception of one B-side, one compilation cut, and one remix, all of our picks can be found on a Madonna studio album—a testament to the singer’s strength as an album artist, particularly in the ’90s. These are songs that, in a more adventurous world, could have been hits, and in some cases where the releases were nixed last minute, almost were, their breadth and depth reflective of an artist unwilling to allow herself to be defined. And just for shits and giggles, we ranked ’em.

Singer-songwriter Baby Yors, né Marco Palou, has been compared to David Bowie and George Michael, and with good reason. When he was 17, the androgynous performer moved from his native Argentina to New York City to pursue a career in ballet but soon shifted his focus to acting and, eventually, music. The multi-hyphenate’s myriad talents are on display in the music video for his latest single, “Bad Influence,” a moody midtempo jam that showcases the dynamic singer’s versatility.
