Party with John Newman and Charlie Wilson in new ‘Tiring Game’ music video.

After supporting Taylor Swift and going top five with latest single ‘Come & Get It’, John Newman is back with a brand new single and it’s got us dancing.

The single ‘Tiring Game’ features vocals from American R&B legend Charlie Wilson and the music video has just dropped.

Set at a party that would be far too classy for us to attend, John is seen arriving with a very pretty lady and then running off flirting with everybody else. Cheeky beggar.

Speaking of the single, John said: “Working in the studio with  Charlie was ridiculous… He was an absolute joy to be around, which hopefully comes through in the music.”

Check out the video below:

‘Tiring Game’ is out now. John’s second album ‘Revolve’ is released October 16. Pre-order here.

Rae Morris releases emosh ‘Don’t Go’ video in partnership with Coppafeel!’s Digital Boob campaign.

Rae Morris has unveiled the music video for her new single ‘Don’t Go’ and it’s pretty bloomin’ emotional. The fan favourite track has been selected as the charity single for Coppafeel!’s Digital Boob breast cancer awareness campaign.

Rae said of the new single: “As some of you may know, I have a song called ‘Don’t Go’. This song features on my album and over the last few years has changed shape and developed with and alongside me; it felt so appropriate to do something for a ridiculously good cause and use the amazing platform of a music video to spread a very important message. That is why I shall be releasing a brand new charity version of ‘Don’t Go’, alongside a wonderful video that I’m so very proud of, with all proceeds going to Coppafeel!”

CoppaFeel! said about their new ambassador, “We are thrilled that our favourite singer, Boob Ninja and all round legend Rae Morris has let us hijack the video for ‘Don’t Go’ in order to get you people checking your boobs.”

Miley Cyrus disguises herself and asks people their opinion of Miley Cyrus.

American chat show host Jimmy Kimmel asked Miley Cyrus to disguise herself as an Australian reporter and ask people their opinions of her, but did she agree? Of course she ruddy well did.

Disguised as Perth’s number one reporter Janet, Miley took to the streets of Hollywood to ask strangers what they thought of her ahead of her hosting this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

One girl started twerking with her, one man spotted her and one person even said “the whole fabric of America is falling apart and she’s not doing anything to try and keep it together.” Ouch!

We have to say Miley was a very good sport, if people were saying some of these things about us, we’d probably cry.

Jess Glynne scores number one album as Rachel Platten knocks her off top of singles chart.

Remember last week when we told you about Jess Glynne’s amazing album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’? Well there’s good news, because that amazing album is now number one on the Official Albums Chart. Who’s laughing now? (Let’s hope she’s not crying too much).

Jess said of her latest chart victory: “I can’t believe it. It’s just… wow! It genuinely hasn’t sunk in yet – it really hasn’t. It’s the most insane feeling to have your whole album accepted by the British public. To see how well it’s been received is possibly one of the most overwhelming feelings I’ve ever had. I’m so proud and excited about this album – I love every song on it. The fact that people are buying it and loving it as well is like some insane dream!”

In the singles chart, Jess’ single ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ falls to number three this week as Rachel Platten‘s ‘Fight Song’ charts at number one and Felix Jaehn’s ‘Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)’ reaches number two.

Calvin Harris & Disciples are at number four with ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ and Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor round off the top five with ‘Marvin Gaye’.
