Then things take a bit of a dark turn. "Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though," he writes. "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do."

Set at first in a haunted laundromat and later at a seedy bar, King lives her chorus in a variety of scenes. "I do what the good girls don't," she sings, and proves that to be true when she arm wrestles a large man in an underground betting ring.
King dyed her blonde hair blue for the video, which also includes clips from the movie. G-Eazy, 5 Seconds of Summer, ZAYN, DMX and more contributed to the soundtrack. Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott already revealed their remix of the original movie's theme with "Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)" earlier in June.

The project is part of Gillette's 'Perfect Isn't Pretty" Summer Olympics campaign. Rechtshaid said he picked chords to fit the visuals of the ad, and adjusted them to match the key of the Sia song.
'I've been a fan of [Olodum] ever since I was listening to my parents' Paul Simon records," the producer told Billboard. 'Sia, who's a friend of mine, and then Pusha T came in towards the end because the song felt like it could use his edge and a verse on it."
'People get to see the end results a lot and they think it was a beautiful ride," said Pusha T in a behind the scenes clip. "They don't even think about the steps it took to get to that final place." Check out the remix here.
In the video's opening moments, the Compton rapper grabs a spray paint can and tags a blank wall with "This S- Brazy." From there, the video, which has a strong black, white and red color theme, gets all sorts of trippy. YG's shadow turns red, and he morphs, multiplies and changes color.
It's fitting that he raps about "paranoia" on the track, because there's a sense of that running throughout the video. What starts off as a clean-cut feel thanks to a primarily white room shifts to an angry red backdrop. At the same time, YG and his posse lose their coordinated costumes and show off their tattooed chests. Watch the video here.

"We're actually going to let the cameras roll for the first time ever on the recording process," Brooks explained of the weekly series during a Facebook Live chat. "I'm hoping the song that you will see us recording makes the record, because then you'll see it take its first breath, and it's pretty sweet to see when something like that comes to life," reported Rolling Stone.
Garth still loves the element of surprise, though, so he warned fans not to expect him to give all the secrets away. "The greatest lab for new music in the '90s was the tour," he said. "I'd call up [producer] Allen Reynolds and [manager] Bob Doyle and say, 'There's this song that the crowds are just eating up, it's crazy.' But you can't do that today. You can't try anything out. So you have to do it in little pieces, little secret labs. It's the people who determine whether something is a hit or not, and it's really nice if you know that before you record it. So with [Inside Studio G] it'll just be pieces, parts." Read more here.
