Jason Derulo And K. Michelle Release 'Naked' Video

(Radio.com) Jason Derulo and K. Michelle have released a music video for their collaboration "Naked." True to its title Derulo's not wearing much, though much of the clip. It's very reminiscent of D'Angelo's iconic "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" music video. Michelle is also very scantily clad, but she gets less screen time.

The track comes from Derulo's mixtape Experimental. "[This mixtape] is very different than what anybody is used to me doing, which I'm excited about," Derulo said in a prepared statement.

"I think we all have different faces. We're somebody different when we're with our best friend. We're somebody different when we're with our mom. We're somebody different when we're with our siblings. This is just one of my many faces on my mixtape and I'm just excited to share it with everybody, because people have no idea that I have that side." Watch the video here.

Katy Perry Taking Her Time On Next Album

(Radio.com) Katy Perry opened up about her next album and who she'll be rooting for at the 2016 GRAMMY Awards. Speaking with The New York Times, the singer said new music isn't around the corner.

Perry takes a more traditional approach to cultivating an album. She follows a three-year cycle when working on an album, which means it may take until 2018 before fans hear anything new.

"I'm in the research and development phase," she said. "I've been going at it for eight or nine years in the spotlight, and then before that there's that decade of hustle that never gets recognized but still shows up in your wrinkles. So right now I'm taking a little time. I don't want to jump on any trends. I just need to evolve." Read more here.

This foodie at heart not only shared her passion for baking (she aces a chocolate molten cake), her cooking aspirations (to write cookbook and collaborate with chef Giada De Laurentiis) and her ideal romantic date (it involves Italian food), but she also discussed the upcoming second album by Fifth Harmony.

"It's a change for us, it's definitely a step up. Fifth Harmony is a different Fifth Harmony today and our music has definitely evolved as just like we have as people. And we're so excited to share this the world! I mean, I already know the game plan for everything, but I can't say it. But I know our fans are going to just flip, I'm flipping as I just think about it right now! It's going to be awesome and I hope everybody loves it and we've worked hard."

She notes that a lot of hit makers have contributed to the new album. "We didn't write on this album but we worked with so many amazing writers like Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, Stargate, MXM; we worked with a lot of pretty phenomenal people." She adds that there will be collaborations on the album, but declines to say who they will be with. She did say, however, of the collabs: "It's so dope'the adjective I want to use is 'dope.'"

"The sound is different," she says of the record. "Sonically it's a step up. [What] I love about this album is that it does have a pretty consistent lane but it also has variety which is awesome.

And I think that's going to really shine through it and I hope people will like it. That's my goal and my hope." Read more and listen to the entire Top Talk with Pace Webb podcast here.

Urie admits he's normally inspired by much weightier feelings from his past. "This was a rare moment, Urie tells Radio.com. "Halfway through writing the album I hit a moment where I hadn't felt that excited in a long time and it sparked the idea of wanting to write this invincible, indestructible, confident song that portrayed exactly how I felt about the whole process up to that point." Urie explains that it was an eye-opening moment.

The 28 year old frontman recalls the exact moment the song was written and describes it as "revelatory" and "celebratory." "I wanted to showcase the party in me," Urie admits with a smile. The song has awaken a demon in him. "The monster's out of the cage," he says. "All I wanna do is party." Read more here.
