!! OMG, copycat video alert: Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl’ !!

The video for Rihanna’s awesome new single “Only Girl (In the World)” was released today, and it’s giving me more than shades of Kelis. It’s giving me firework explosions of Kelis and running through desolate fields of Kelis. Compare and contrast these stills from Rihanna’s “Only Girl” video with those of the video of “Fourth of July” by Kelis.

When I first heard Rihanna’s new single, I thought, wow she is doing just what Kelis did earlier this year: She’s coming out with a gay dance album. That’s cool, I love “Only Girl” and hope the whole album reaches that standard of pop goodness. But it looks like Rihanna is coming for Kelis in more ways than just her sound, but also very specific themes of her video.
Watch both videos after the jump and decide for yourself.

The Year of Robyn will hurtle toward its inevitable conclusion when the final installment in the Swedish sensation’s Body Talk album triptych is released on Nov. 29. The full details of Body Talk Pt. 3 have yet to be confirmed but advance word is this record will be the definitive Body Talk album, comprised of five brand new tracks and five tracks apiece from Body Talk Pt. 1 and Body Talk Pt. 2. The lead single is a clubbed-up version of “Indestructible”, the orchestral ballad that ended Pt. 2, and it will be released on Nov. 22. Got all that? Good.
Listen to the song below and check out Robyn’s fall tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, watch the new Mark Ronson video “Somebody To Love Me” !!


Attention ’80s nostalgia-philes: the highly incredible Mark Ronson/Boy George song “Somebody To Love Me” now has a wildly fun music video courtesy of director Saam Farahmand. The clip is styled like a home movie and transports viewers back in time to crazy house party from the Culture Club’s heyday.
The track features a cavalcade of gay and gay-ish collaborators in addition to George, including Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Cathy Dennis and Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears. It’s one of the year’s best pop songs and easily one of Ronson’s best.
