Go behind the scenes with The Vamps

British sensations The Vamps have released the behind the scenes video for their latest music video featuring the incredible Demi Lovato, ‘Somebody To You’.

The video released by Hollywood Life, sees the boys just casually chilling in Malibu, kind of an everyday activity, right? Not that we’re jealous here at MP! Towers.

The boys talk about how much they love sharing their favourite hobby and career with their best friends and the love they have for their fans in the UK – adorbs, right?

‘Somebody To You’ is the first single the boys are releasing in America and we are so excited to see what the future holds for these four genuine lads.

Watch the official music video here:

katy perry this is how we do lyric video

Katy Perry goes 90′s gamer mode for ‘This Is How We Do’ lyric video

It’s fine to suck at Mariah Carey-oke but not OK to fudge up Katy Perry’s hot new single ‘This Is How We Do’.

I mean, c’mon y’all there’s no excuse, really. She’s even uploaded a retro cool lyric video to help you along.

The track nods along to a seriously wicked 90s hip hop beat, which totally explains why the video’s channeling some serious late 80s to early 90s video game graphics.

‘This Is How We Do’ is Katy’s fifth single from her UK #1 album Prism. Not trying to be like, ‘Duh!’ but the song is hands down one of the best and most obvious singles choices on there.

It’s a feel good ode to hanging out with your mates, doing fun stuff and not giving a damn about grown up stuff.

“Yo, shout out to all you kids buying bottle service with your rent money. Respect!”

Now grab your iPhone, open up Snapchat and film yourself singing along. It’s totally how Katy would do.

MP! Reviews: Guilfest 5 people you’re going to be GUTTED you missed.

We sent our social media guru Gemma down to Stoke Park for Guilfest 2014. She’s a bit Jedward mad so we thought we’d be nice. Here’s her top 5 moments from the pop packed weekend.

JEDWARD
With one of the biggest crowds for the Good Time Stage – Jedward completely SMASHED their 40 minute set. During their performance of ‘All The Small Things’ John braved the seas of screaming Jedward fans and jumped right in the crowd! (Right by us actually, and we’ve gotta admit, we squealed a little). Never a dull moment when watching these two. Guilfest also got to see the first UK performance of their self written track ‘Free Spirit’ with the crowd singing along right to the end. We also can’t forget Edward’s little diva moment when given some white plastic garden chairs for their acoustic performances. We love a good diva!

SAM BAILEY
Words can’t describe our reaction to Sam Bailey’s performance. AMAZING voice. The hour long set saw her perform some tracks from her album including her debut single ‘Skyscraper’. And boy can she hit those high notes. We danced our socks off to ‘How Will I Know‘ and we weren’t the only ones! Inbetween songs she had chats with the crowd including one about her ‘X Factor baby’ saying that Sharon Osbourne would be the godmother and fellow X Factor contestant Nicholas Mcdonald would be Godfather. How sweet!

SHANE RICHIE AND THE PRELUDE
Who knew Alfie Moon had a band?! What would Kat say! Performing  for the first time at Guilfest, the band performed some rock classics and songs from today it sure got the whole crowd up and dancing. We were there right at the front showing off our dance moves to ‘Moves Like Jagger’. And who remembers ‘Crazy Horses’?! We probably looked like crazy horses whilst rocking to this song. What must we have looked like!

KATRINA (EX KATRINA AND THE WAVES)
As we walked into the festival on Sunday the first thing we heard was Katrina singing Queen’s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ – so we had to go join the party. She won Eurovision for us and she rocked the main stage. Performing her Eurovision hit ‘Love Shine A Light’ and another of her classics ‘Walking On Sunshine’ – she had everyone up and dancing – such a fitting song for the nice summer weather too!

THE DARLING BUDS
Twilight and The Mortal Instruments actor Jamie Campbell Bower has a band and managed a full acoustic tent with fans singing along to every word! The band may not be pop but we checked them out in the Acoustic Lounge and boy does he have a beautiful voice (and a lovely face too!) Performing mainly their own tracks such as ‘Better Man’ and ‘Waiting’ (which were our personal faves) – they also performed a cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’. It has to be said we have a soft spot for the bassist Tristan Marmont. I even bumped into Jamie after their performance and he called me a sweetheart. *fangirls forever*

Other acts that graced Guilfest included Ashley Roberts, Kingsland Road, The Hoosiers, Kool and the Gang and Miss Dynamite. Our list of highlights could go on FOREVER!

Introducing: Pearls Negras – Brazil’s baddest new rap group

We don’t know about you, England, but Brazil is shaking that stinging World Cup defeat off with Pearls Negras.

The Brazilian trio is one of the country’s hottest new acts, quickly making a name for themselves for spitting raw attitude-driven rap over gritty club and trap beats.

They’re rocking a sound that MIA and producer Diplo have referenced over the years, so it’s really not a stretch to imagine Pearls Negras’ tunes being blasted in sweaty underground clubs around Europe.

CL The Baddest Female gif

Meet 17-year old Alice and 16-year old Jeni and Mari, the fierce teens stars who adore Nicki Minaj and like to rap about parties, love and social issues. Y’know, the stuff that matter.

The girls met years ago at an after school theatre program in Rio de Janeiro’s hip Vidigal favela. They’re all working actresses in Brazil. So when they’re not gracing the small screen in their day jobs, these girls are slaying rhymes in clubs.

How’s that for multi-talented and multi-busy? They’re set to embark on a European tour soon. So stay tuned!

Check out Pearls Negras’ hot single ‘Pesando em Você’, which means ‘Thinking of You’ in Portugese.

rixton-650-430.jpg

Rixton announce a UK headline tour- all we need is a little Rixton in our hearts.

We’ve banged on about Rixton for a while here at MP! and I hate to say I told you so but.. I told you so. They smashed the charts last week heading straight in at number 1 with ‘Me And My Broken Heart’. The Manchester based band announced they will be heading out on a 13 date UK tour.

After working on cracking America the lads will be back in October to bust out some of their biggest UK venues to date. There’s been no official clue as to what the second single will be but we’ll see you down the front at London’s Koko.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday July 26th. Click here to purchase.

Nicki Minaj teases another clip from Ariana Grande & Jessie J collaboration ‘Bang Bang’…

A pop behemoth is about to descend upon the world in the form of the upcoming collaboration between Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande, and MP! Towers is getting very giddy indeed.

We’ve already heard a preview of ‘Bang Bang’ featuring Jessie’s dulcet tones and now Nicki has just teased a clip of her own segment. The snippet is all too brief but it certainly whets the appetite ahead of the song’s premiere on July 29th. Mark your calendars accordingly!

Pharrell drops brand new video for ‘Come Get It Bae’

‘Come Get It Bae’ is one of the funkiest tracks from Pharrell’s current album ‘G I R L’ and, despite some confusion in the MP! office about what a “bae” is exactly, we’re very happy it’s been chosen as the next single!

The superstar producer and performer has just dropped a new video for the song which features a succession of ladies busting out some of their best moves for the camera. We also get a cameo from none other than Miss Miley Cyrus herself, who lends her unmistakeable vocals to the tune. Our only beef with the vid is the distinct lack of enormous hats but we’ll let that one go for now…

Hilary Duff is back! Plus: Hear a snippet of her new single ‘Chasing The Sun’

Hilary Duff has been away from the pop scene for some time but she’s getting ready for a bit of a comeback! The singer and former ‘Lizzie McGuire’ star has made some solid gold pop anthems in her time and she’s recently signed to RCA to make a few more, including forthcoming single ‘Chasing The Sun’. Speaking about her new music, Hilary says;

“I took a break from music for quite awhile, but it gave me the power to choose my next steps carefully and I’m really proud of the album I’ve made. ‘Chasing The Sun’ is a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree,’ 

Not only that but Ms. Duff has just teased a snippet of the track on Instagram along with some adorable footage of the lady herself having a bit of a dance to it. Aw.

‘Chasing The Sun’ will premiere in full on July 29th. Are you lot excited for the return of The Duff?

5-seconds-of-summer-live-from-mtv

5 Seconds of Summer set to sell bucketloads of albums in America. Obviously.

5 Seconds of Summer’s debut album has already sold squillions around most of the world since its release earlier this month, but poor US fans had to wait a little longer to get their mitts on it. Well, it’s finally been unleashed stateside and the fans haven’t wasted any time in grabbing a copy.

The boys are expected to shift 250,000 units in the first week of sales, meaning the band will clinch their first ever US number 1 album! Just to put that into perspective, that’s a QUARTER OF A MILLION albums. Phew.

Well deserved, don’t you think?
