My favorite song of ’09 gets the video treatment and it’s amazing! Alicia Keys beautifully sings the hook on the new New York anthem while Jay-Z takes you on a tour through NYC with his story-telling flow. The video concept is very cool with the still transition pictures and black & white application. This song reignites my desire to live in the big apple, it’s such a vibrant city. Enjoy!

Brand new video from Britney for her new single, 3. If you didn’t already catch it, it’s about three-somes. The video treatment is not bad, but looks pretty low budget. At least she’s dressing better? Check it out.

Buy Britney’s single 3 here.

I discovered this new band today, thanks to Diz. They hail from Boston and they’re a mash-up up of indie rock , electronic, electro, dance-pop which reminds you a little of MGMT. Enjoy!

Fresh Cut: Taylor Swift – Jump Then Fall

leave a comment »

Taylor Swift just released the Platinum Edition of her album, Fearless. She currently has 5 of the top 10 songs on iTunes, including the #1 hit single, Jump Then Fall. It’s a feel good song so check it out and the rest of the album. Also, Taylor will be hosting and performing on SNL on November 7th. There is a rumor that Kanye West will make an appearance with her. I’d love to see that!
