Justin Bieber And David Guetta Release '2U' Video

(Radio.com) David Guetta and Justin Bieber have released the music video for their collaborative hit "2U." The storyline follows a couple having a potentially relationship-ending conversation, over and over, la Groundhog Day.

"When we first heard '2U' we were struck by how the music and lyrics supported each other," said directing duo Brewer in a prepared statement. "The song perfectly captures the emotional phenomenon of loving someone to the point where there's nothing you wouldn't do for them. And we thought it would be great to embrace this idea, being as it's one of our most beloved cultural cliches, and repeat it over and over again to try to see if through repetition a new perspective, a new deconstruction, could happen."

"It's like saying a word over and over again, eventually it starts to lose its shape," they continued. "We hope people are compelled to watch it multiple times because there is a lot of fun stuff hiding in the frames."

Check out the video for "2U," which contains some explicit hand gestures, here.

Demi Lovato Opens Up About Drinking Problem

(Radio.com) Demi Lovato has been an open book about her struggles with body image, addiction and mental illness in her music, on social media and in interviews. On the eve of her sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me, the singer sat down with NPR to discuss the themes and influences that inspired the record.

Lovato, who celebrated five years of sobriety in March, described the lowest point of her drinking. "Rock bottom hit me in a moment when I was drinking vodka out of a Sprite bottle at nine in the morning on my way to the airport," she said. "I actually threw up in the back of the car service, and I had a moment where I thought to myself, 'Wow, this is no longer glamorous. This is no longer a young person having fun with drinking and alcohol and experimentation. This is actually pathetic and sad.'"

While in treatment, Demi was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Rather than keeping these personal challenges to herself, the singer decided to face them openly in the public eye. Read more here.

Taylor Swift Shares Her 'Songs Taylor Loves' Playlist

(Radio.com) What do songs by Lana Del Rey, Khaled, Maren Morris, Ryan Hurd and the National all have in common? They're all songs that Taylor Swift loves as she just revealed.

Swift kicked off the last Friday of September 2017 by releasing a new 70-song Spotify playlist, "Songs Taylor Loves," packed with an eclectic mix of music ranging from dreamy pop to heartfelt country to introspective hip-hop.

Reaction to the playlist was swift (no pun intended), with Maren Morris sharing a tweet of disbelief that she and boyfriend Ryan Hurd both made the cut. See Taylor Swift's new playlist here.

Shania Twain Releases 'Swingin' with My Eyes Closed' Video

(Radio.com) It sounds like Shania Twain has spent some time in Jamaica, and looks like time has stopped. Twain's new song, "Swingin' with My Eyes Closed," has a touch of reggae island vibes sprinkled across the verses of the tune's pop-country grooves.

The song arrives with a flashy new music video, featuring the singer resplendent in a black dress as she frolics in a loft amidst a mob of dancers all dressed in white.

"Swingin' with My Eyes Closed" is the latest single from Twain's brand new comeback album, Now, which was released this past Friday (Sept. 29). Check out Shania's new video here.

Gwen Stefani Releases New Song 'Santa Baby'

(Radio.com) Everyone loves holiday cheer, and around Halloween every year the floodgates usually open for a festive barrage of Christmas albums and singles, along with retail shops full of holiday merchandise. This year, Gwen Stefani was feeling so jolly she couldn't wait that long to release a couple of Christmas songs.

"Santa Baby" is the second single from her Christmas album You Make It Feel Like Christmas, following on the heels of the title track, an original written and recorded with her significant other Blake Shelton.

"Santa Baby" is a Christmas standard, and it rose to prominence when Eartha Kitt released it in 1953. Since then, the sexy song has been covered by Kylie Minogue, Ariana Grande and others. Stefani's version is no doubt (no pun intended) slinky, but the lilting rhythm gives it a pleasant country vibe. Listen to Gwen's "Santa Baby" here.

Vic Mensa Releases 'Rolling Like a Stoner' Video

(Radio.com) Vic Mensa's got a problem and nobody knows. Mensa's new music video, "Rolling Like a Stoner," captures the rapper in a confessional mood, revealing the wild and surreal side of the rock star life.

"The 'Rolling Like A Stoner' video is about reckless abandon & escapism," Mensa explained in a press statement. "The whole thing was filmed on a stage, as a comment on life as an entertainer. I was watching films like Bye Bye Life and Birdman, and 1920s westerns."

In the clip, Mensa is seen riding a motorcycle, flying through the sky and at one point, seeing himself with big devil horns protruding from his head in the mirror. He even contemplates jumping off a bridge. Watch the video here.

Miley Cyrus Discusses Staying Provocative With Younger Now

(Radio.com) Miley Cyrus has just released her latest album, Younger Now and the grown-up, pop-country collection comes as a bit of a surprise from the former pop provocateur. Yet Cyrus remains determined to push buttons and spread her ideology. Only, this time she's being more subtle and less abrasive.

While she previously strived to shock and surprise her audience by being controversial and aggressively sexual, Cyrus says that's no longer her goal. At the same time, she's irritated that fans actually expect her to mature and mellow out as she age.

"In a way, Younger Now is really about ageism and sexism, too, because I feel like as women get older it's so hard," she said. "I'm watching Madonna do it with such grace and such style and people still attack her' People just want to talk about how she shouldn't do a f cartwheel at the Super Bowl and it's like, why? Why can't you still wear a grill, why can't you still be a part of pop culture?" Read more here.

"Lady in Yellow" appears on Yachty's debut studio album Teenage Emotions, which was released in May. The video is an homage to various ladies in yellow, with models perched on a yellow couch, riding a yellow bike and riding a yellow toy horse.

Some of the women are dressed in regal womenswear, while others are wearing athleisure getups, formal gowns and PVC pants. The effect is a celebration of diverse female personalities and beauty. Watch the video here.

Quavo's Adds A Verse To Travis Scott's 'Butterfly Effect'

(Radio.com) Travis Scott released "Butterfly Effect" in May and it's not clear whether the single corresponds to a studio album. He's been hard at work on his forthcoming project while touring with Kendrick Lamar.

Details for his next release remain TBA--but "Butterfly Effect" is a nice amuse-bouche for fans while they await more new material. Quavo just performed a remix of "Butterfly Effect" during a Migos concert, putting his own spin on the hit. Footage from the show surfaced online and perhaps the remix will get an official release.

Travis hinted that a joint project with Quavo was in the making, but there's no news about its status, either. Watch Quavo's "Butterfly Effect" verse, which contains explicit lyrics, here.

The all-star lineup also features Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, and Sam Hunt with a special appearance by Lindsay Ell.

Kelly Clarkson Discusses Taking Control of Her New Music

(Radio.com) For the first time in her career, Kelly Clarkson is in control. The pop star sat down with 97.1 AMP Radio DJ McCabe in Los Angeles for an exclusive interview where she discussed taking the reins of her music for new album, Meaning of Life, due on Oct. 27.

"I don't think it's a secret there was a struggle there for a bit," she shared during the interview about her latest full-length, the first in 15 years not under contract with the RCA record label.

Clarkson landed on RCA as part of the prize for winning the first season of American Idol back in 2002. "Anytime there's like an arranged marriage scenario, in fairness to RCA they didn't pick me either," she conceded. "I just happened to be on the show."

"I listen to all these songs for the last 15 years, you can tell there's a suppressed individual in there," she added. Read more here.

Singled Out: Sierra Blanca's Book

Indie folk artist Sierra Blanca recently released a new single called "Book" and to celebrate we asked mastermind Jethro Gaglione to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I wrote "Book" towards the beginning of the year, when I felt like there was a sense of gloom and depression in people around me. It mostly had to do with social injustice constantly all over the news, disappointment in politicians, the government, and just how things were going in the U.S. in general. I've never really been a huge fan of writing direct political messages in my songs, but I think some of that came through on this song, at least between the lines. The first thing I wrote in this song as a whole was actually the guitar riff at the beginning. The chorus kind of came with time and I knew I wanted to really highlight the lyrics and vocals themselves, which is why I dropped out a lot of the instruments in the first chorus.

In the scope of the EP as a whole, "Book" was the last song I wrote for it. I literally finished the last line of lyrics in the vocal booth before laying down the tracks. It's one of my favorite tracks off of the EP and I've been super happy with how \well it has been received.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about Sierra Blanca right here!
