If you thought Charlie Wilson‘s soaring, soulful vocals on Kanye West‘s 2013 juggernaut “Bound 2″ sounded positively uplifting, wait till you hear them slapped atop a drum and bass beat with an electronic accompaniment. London dance duo Sigma initially remixed “Bound 2″ and offered it up as a free download earlier this year. Three months, some local radio airplay and a professional recording session later, their rendition, “Nobody To Love,” now has a colorful music video (featuring two beautiful women frolicking in the Cape Town sun) and is currently the #1 single in the UK.
“Nobody To Love” is just latest retro-sounding dance tune to top the British chart, following Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be,” Route 94‘s “My Love” and Duke Dumont‘s “I Got U” – and the streak looks set to continue, as Kiesza‘s own ’90s house throwback, “Hideaway,” is already #1 on UK iTunes following its release this past Sunday.
Does Sigma’s re-working of “Bound 2″ have you dancing joyously in front of your computer? If so, you’ll be happy to note that it’s currently available on US iTunes.

You know what? Sure, David Bowie is shamelessly shilling a song from his latest album The Next Day in an ad for Louis Vuitton, which has conveniently sprung up the same week said album has been re-released in deluxe form…but so what. It’s DAVID BOWIE. And he’s playing harpsichord in the middle of a party that looks like some scene out of a weird cinematic mash-up of Interview With The Vampire and Marie Antoinette.
The model Arizona Muse joins the Thin White Duke as he croons the song “I’d Rather Be High” in the clip, which serves as the latest in LV’s L’Invitation au Voyage series. Watch above, and don’t even think of ever accusing Bowie of selling out again.

Che’Nelle is preparing for world domination with ridiculously cute dance-pop gem “It’s Happening Again”. If the Australian diva’s name looks familiar it’s because the Malaysian-born beauty has been on the brink of very big things since 2005 when she signed with Virgin Records America. That led to an urban-flavored debut album and a tour with Kanye West but for whatever reason it didn’t work out and Ms. Lim ended up in Japan – where she promptly became a platinum-selling superstar.
2013 is set to be another banner year for Che’Nelle. Her third Japanese LP drops any day now and she’s finally ready to conquer the US with a dance EP spearheaded by “It’s Happening Again”. There’s something utterly irresistible about this tune. It’s relentlessly joyous and unselfconscious – in the vein of ’80s super-producers Stock Aitken Waterman. The video is basically a glamour shoot with the stunning 30-year-old posing in an array of sexy outfits. It does the trick.
Are you ready for more Che’Nelle in your life? Let us know in the comments.

One couldn’t be blamed for thinking Chris Brown didn’t care much about his public image, from his Twitter rants to his tattoos to his terrorist Halloween costume to – you know, that thing with Rihanna. But that’s not the case now that he’s launching Symphonic Love, in which he’s getting involved with youngsters in a big way – arts and crafts, custom graffiti, even baking cookies!
“I want to the kids to see I’m doing the right thing and giving back,” Chris says in a behind-the-scenes clip that explains his mission statement.
Now if only he had showed up to the event in his terrorist costume.
With their video for Dos! cut “Stray Heart,” Green Day have finally ended their streak of studio-centric music videos (even their clip for “The Forgotten” off the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack featured studio footage). But in this one, the band is nowhere in sight. Instead, it follows a well-meaning man who we soon find out has, quite literally, a stray heart. It’s a cheekily grisly concept that works well with the song’s poppy rock bounce. Watch it up top, ahead of the November 13 release of Dos!.
We’ve been a fan of Kay‘s for a minute, since her collabs with Cobra Starship and Wallpaper. piqued our interest – and now the Canadian chanteuse is back with a new sound of her own in the haunting clip for her new song “Rewind The Track” from her upcoming EP, which Idolator is thrilled to premiere exclusively. Formerly signed to Ryan Tedder‘s imprint on Interscope Records, Kay’s shed her skin to emerge in a new electro-indie space, and we have to say that it suits her.
“‘Rewind The Track’ came from a dark and healing place,” Kay explained to Idolator. “It reflects a time and place in my life that I both cherish and feel emotional towards. It’s a special song for me.” A chilly midtempo cut that’s enlivened by the eerie visuals, which see Kay walking along a beach in spare black-and-white, “Rewind The Track” will have you doing the titular move, over and over again. Watch it above.
We have no idea why, exactly, Miley Cyrus decided to team up with Israeli dubstep DJ Borgore for his latest single “Decisions,” but it’s new Miley, so there’s no point in complaining – we’re just going to enjoy it and come along for the ride. A rowdy, squealing dance track with Cyrus’ harmonies throughout, the song sounds better suited for a shadowy European nightclub than a party in the USA, with Cyrus and Borgore singing together: ”Decisions, but I want it all, so I get it all / I wanna eat the whole cake” over jittery synths. Best line of the track has to go to Borgore, who deadpans in his verse, “Every day’s my birthday, ’cause bitches love cake.”
The video picks up when Cyrus appears to bring some serious party behavior to an event at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, smearing cake everywhere, making out with randos and generally getting us excited for her upcoming return to music. Food fight! Watch the clip up top.
If there’s one thing that never gets old in music video tropes, it’s a backyard house party – so don’t blame us for going H.A.M. over T.I.‘s video for his latest single “Ball,” which features Lil Wayne over a booty-clapping beat courtesy of Rico Love. Smartly, T.I. and his crew took the song’s country-fried hip-hop vibe to the streets of New Orleans and threw a monster bash. So monstrous, in fact, that there are shots of one member of his crew eating Froot Loops out of a very large mixing bowl. We can all agree: It doesn’t get better than that.
