I don’t know about you, but I’m always lookin forward to new music from Mario. The most underrated male singer of today in my book. He just needs the right direction and producers. This is a decent new record, it’s not confirmed of its intended place just yet, but well worth a listen for any fan of the Baltimore native.

Today, is definitely a video premiere day.
After a few previews Pop star Jason Derulo unleashes the official video for his rising smash single “It Girl.” Toning it down a bit from his usual dance floor anthems, the 21 year-old entertainer gets sincere in the visual for the Pop R&B hit. Derulo makes ‘Gossip Girl’ actress Tika Sumpter his official ‘It Girl’ in the Colin Tilley directed visual.
“For the video, I wanted it to be an open book,” Jason told MTV on the set. “I wanted it to be almost like a photo album, so every single scene is kind of like a picture that you’re kind of looking into our relationship.”
“It Girl” acts as the second single off Derulo’s forthcoming sophomore album, Future History, in stores September 27.
Tyrese and Tyga got a chick in the brand new video for Ty’s recent buzz single. Actually they got A LOT of chicks, like DAAMN…The Brazil directed visual finds the ladies man and the Young Money rapper surrounded by beautiful women in a modern Los Angeles mansion. Pillow fights, Twister! Some stuff went down (haha). The legendary R. Kelly who is featured on the hook of the song is still recovering from his throat surgery and was unable to make the video. Probably NSFW, but check it out when you can!
Tyrese’s comeback album Open Invitation is slated to hit stores November 1st.
Earlier this year, platinum selling R&B band Mint Condition celebrated their 20th anniversary by releasing a new album, 7…, via Shanachie Entertainment. Today, we get the video for their latest love ballad “Walk On.” The song is about knowing when to walk away from a relationship that is no longer working. The G. Visuals directed video stars Carl Payne (Martin) and Jessica Castro.
We haven’t heard anything new from the other Knowles girl in a long time, but while we patiently wait for Solange to release some solo ear candy for us, you can catch her featured on electro/funk duo Chromeo’s new single “When The Night Falls.” Solie makes a guest appearance in the comical visual as well.
This is a nightmare for many rock stars out there. Haha.
Not the outfit I would expect from Cee-Lo for a performance at a WWE event (his Lollapalooza one would have worked perfect, ha), but why should we expect anything ordinary from Mr. Green. The Lady Killer entertained the full house of wrestling fans at Summerslam with a live performance of his singles “Bright Lights Bigger City” and “Forget You.”
Teairra Mari fans may finally get that sophomore album they’ve been waiting for. The R&B chanteuse has departed Warner Bros. Records and signed a new deal with Rico Love’s ‘Division1′ label. She made the official announcement on set of the video for “That’s All Me,” helmed by Rico. Check it out above, shout to Rap-Up.
