(Radio.com) Taylor Swift and former One Direction star Zayn Malik have released the official music video clip for their new collaborative track, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever."

Directed by Grant Singer, most recently known for his work on The Weeknd's latest videos, the dark, sexy clip features Swift and Malik trashing a fancy hotel room, yet there are few scenes featuring both singers in the same shot.

Jamiroquai Release 'Automoton' Video

(Radio.com) Jamiroquai is back from a years-long hiatus with a new song (and accompanying video), "Automoton." The British funk and acid-jazz icons will release their latest album of the same name on March 31.

In a press release, frontman Jay Kay explained the inspiration behind Jamiroquai's latest, futuristic track and video. 'The inspiration for 'Automaton' is in recognition of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today and how we as humans are beginning to forget the more pleasant, simple and eloquent things in life and in our environment including our relationship with one another as human beings," Jay Kay said.

Aesthetically, the clip borrows from science fiction and the technological revolution. We can't wait to hear all 12 tracks from the album. Watch the video for "Automoton" here.

Missy Elliott Releases 'I'm Better' Video

(Radio.com) Missy Elliott has returned with the new song and video "I'm better," and if you asked her she'd say she's "better than ever." The video for the song features Lamb and an eccentric cast of dancers dangling from strings like puppets, collapsing on the ground and transforming into puddles of water and dancing in a deep pool.

The song features a sparse, ominous percussive keyboard passage, spare, well-placed beats, deep-groove bass lines and autotune-inflected vocals full of sass. 'Yeah he got bands in the Bando/ Missy got dudes in Orlando/ Plus I got cars that he paying for/ Man, I be too much to handle," Elliott raps.

"It's another day another chance/ I wake up I wanna dance/ So as long as I got my friends I'm better, I'm better, I'm better," responds Lamb in the chorus. Watch the video and read more here.

Justin Bieber Shares The Story Behind 'Love Yourself'

(Radio.com) "Love Yourself" marked the third single off Justin Bieber's fourth studio album Purpose, and in it he lays out all the reasons he's done with his ex: She uses his name to get into clubs, she hates his friends and she can't get enough of her reflection in the mirror. But he saves the best insult for the hook. "My mama don't like you, and she likes everyone," Bieber sings.

Bieber co-wrote "Love Yourself" with Benjamin Levin and Ed Sheeran, and the latter's particular acoustic approach helped set it apart from Purpose's other EDM-laced tracks.

It's an easy-paced, stripped down affair. "We went through a lot of hardships, a lot of battles, and you come out on top when you're passionate and when you're real and when you're authentic and when people can see it," he told Radio.com about the way he has developed as an artist, and it shows in the more mature "Love Yourself."
