Video: Beyonce - Party

Another week, another Beyonce video.  This ones for Party, the bouncy Kanye-produced track that featured Andre 3000 on the album, but not here.  Beyonce does bring along sister Solange and Kell Rowland for the video though

Download: Charli XCX - Nuclear Seasons

Charli XCX is a UK pop starlet, who, despite her tender age (she's still a teen), has crafted not one but two pop anthems this year.  This little gem is heavy on the synths, with Charli's voice gliding over it like a surfboard.  Ominous and anxious, yet totally addictive.

Video: Beyonce - Love on Top

Perhaps answering the questions of plagiarism that have been flying around since the 'Countdown' video surfaced last week, Queen B has bounced back with 'Love on Top', with the clip being a homage to 80's boy bands like New Edition.

Video: M83 - Midnight City

I've decided Midnight City is one of my favourite songs of the year.  Which means that this awesome video is one of my favourites now too.

Video: Nas - Nasty

Nas slides through NYC in a limo with some models, pimps vodka in a sound booth and tosses off finger rings to kids like a modern-day Nino Brown.  Such is the new video for Nasty, which may or may not herald the coming of a new album.  From Pitchfork

Stream: Justice - Canon & Newlands

OneThirtyBPM has two new Justice tracks for streaming, and my god if they aren't drenched in those arena rock guitars they promised us.  For those about to rock!

Video: Brenmar - Temperature Rising

This 2-step/house throwback track is by Brooklyn DJ/Producer Brenmar, and whilst the track is dope, the video is illin'.  I'm using that old school vernacular because what else can accurately describe the Hammer Time dance styles in this clip.  The footage is ripped from New Dance Party, a local Detroit dance program from the late 80's/early 90's, back when people used to dance on TV shows.  Wonder why that trend faded away?

Video: Tom Cruise Wedding Dance-Off!

The Mission Impossible recently got challenged on the floor, and if there's one thing you can say about Mr Cruise, he's a competitor.  He throws down some impressive moves and definitely takes the points in my book.

Video: Beyonce - Countdown

Beyonce and her ubiquitous baby bump are on full display in the Audrey Hepburn aping 'Countdown'.  It's a nice little slice of pop music and I'm looking forward to watching its bouncy, kaleidoscopic clip at my gym for the next two months!

Video: Drake - Headlines

I'm pretty sure these guys are serious.  A big, old building, some super serious posse members wearing black sweats, and Drake rapping like they weren't there in his seriously serious black hoodie.  Or maybe it's just a Halloween party.
