US Chart Roundup: Pharrell's "Happy" Is The First #1 Of 2014 To Not Have A Feature On It

Pharrell Williams' enjoyable soul jam "Happy" finally hops up to #1 on the Hot 100 after spending two weeks in the runner-up position. It's now the fourth song to top the chart in 2014, and the first one to not have a "feature" on it (after Eminem featuring Rihanna's "The Monster," Pitbull featuring Ke$ha's "Timber" and Katy Perry featuring Juicy J's "Dark Horse").

Meanwhile, Pharrell's G I R L album, which will be released this coming Monday (March 3), boasts collaborations with Daft Punk ("Gust Of Wind")...



...Miley Cyrus ("Come Get It Bae")...



...and Justin Timberlake ("Brand New").



And that's that.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams *1 week*
2. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J
3. "Talk Dirty" - Jason Derulo feat. 2 Chainz

My Kylie Minogue Interview

I had a long talk with Kylie Minogue again in early February, for an interview that was published this morning on Idolator and a piece that will appear in the April issue of Instinct. She was very open to talking about most aspects of putting together her upcoming album Kiss Me Once, and I got the sense that the year spent recording songs for the record, plus the process of whittling them all down to a decent LP, was a very stressful time for her. You wouldn't know it from listening to the album, though.

Having heard Kiss Me Once in full, I feel like it's a very decent set that fans of Kylie's will return to again and again. It's way more X than it is Aphrodite, and that's not a bad thing at all, in my book.

Anyway, check out the interview via the Idolator link above!

Frankmusik & RuPaul Announce New Albums, But Only One Has The Frankmusik/RuPaul Duet

Above is the flashy, quite lovely cover of Frankmusik's upcoming album By Nicole, while below is the cover of RuPaul's Born Naked, which is out today. (How very Beyonce of Ru.)

Born Naked just happens to contain a duet between the two artists, titled "Fly Tonight," and its a straight forward, feel-good love song tailor made for dancefloor bliss. Pick Ru's album up for this track alone.

UK Chart Roundup: Sam Smith Makes Some Money

If 2013 was John Newman's year then 2014 will likely belong to Sam Smith. The 21-year-old crooner lands his first hit as a lead artist this week with "Money On My Mind," following his well-timed BRITs Critics' Choice award. The song goes in at #1 on the UK chart, thus ending the four-week reign of Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne's "Rather Be." The last time Smith saw such heights was as a vocalist on Naughty Boy's single "La La La," which topped the chart last spring.



Over on the album chart, a slew of BRITs winners fly back into the Top 10 — like Arctic Monkeys, Disclosure and Rudimental — leaving Katy B's Little Red to get knocked down from #1 to #8.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Money On My Mind" - Sam Smith *new* *1 week*
2. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams
3. "Rather Be" - Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne
4. "Say Something" - A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera *new*
5. "Stay The Night" - Zedd feat. Hayley Williams
6. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J
7. "Shot Me Down" - David Guetta feat. Skylar Grey
8. "Timber" - Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
9. "Crying For No Reason" - Katy B
10. "Dibby Dibby Sound" - DJ Fresh Vs. Jay Fay feat. Ms. Dynamite

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" Video: Watch Dark Boobs Pretend To Be Egyptian

Life in plastic continues to be fantastic for Katy Perry, as her latest video, "Dark Horse," plays out like some cheeseball Disney flick aimed at five-year-olds. The current chart-topping screech doll is decked out like Cleopatra in the clip, and men line up to shower her with gifts.

Apparently, she's only pole-dancing for Juicy J, though. The pastel is colorful, the scenery is eye-popping and it's another giant hit for Katy, so throw another quarter between those jugs, baby and make 'em bounce.

Lady Gaga Performed "Artpop" On The 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' Last Night

A quick catchup on Lady Gaga: "Applause" was a late-summer hit; ARTPOP underperformed in the fall; "Do What U Want" was derailed in December by (let's face it) the renewed horror of duet partner R. Kelly's sex crime accusations; swapping out R. Kelly for Christina Aguilera did nothing to bolster the chart fortunes of "Do What U Want," nor did the video ever get a release; Gaga claimed ARTPOP got off track because people (read: her manager) deserted her when she needed them most.

So here were are now with the resurfacing of Mother Monster, who performed on night #2 of Jimmy Fallon's new stint as host of the Tonight Show. Strangely, she didn't perform "Gypsy," which is rumored to be the official third single off ARTPOP — rather, she served up a pretty nice, piano-driven rendition of the title track.



Who knows if this album campaign can be turned around, but it does kind of feel like do or die time, no?

Surprise: Pharrell's New Album 'G I R L' Out In Two Weeks

Pharrell has scored three hits in the past year that have landed at either #1 or #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, but only one of those, "Happy," was credited to him as the lead artist. But, ta da — his second studio album, G I R L, has been given the surprise release date of Monday, March 3. That puts it up against new releases from Imogen Heap, Ashanti (LOL, etc.) and Lea Michele. Cue up Lea Michele letting out a power vocal shriek.

The press release for the album gives little to no information about G I R L itself, other than the fact that lead single "Happy" will be performed live tonight at the BRIT Awards and the night before Pharrell's LP release (March 2) at the Academy Awards.

There is, however, this album teaser, which features some nice strings:

UK Chart Roundup: Katy B Is Big Red!

If you've not yet gotten ahold of Katy B's fan-fucking-tastic sophomore album Little Red, then you're missing out on the year's (so far) biggest '90s house music throwback party. The LP crashed into the top of the UK chart today, doing one better than Katy's first record, On A Mission, which peaked at #2 in 2011. Likewise, latest Little Red single "Crying For No Reason" climbs two notches to #5, after initially peaking at #4 two weeks ago.

US Chart Roundup: Dark Princess Katy Perry's 32-Week Reign Of Chart-Topping Terror

With three weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, "Dark Horse" now boasts one of Katy Perry's lengthier stints at #1. The broad has nine singles that have climbed to the peak position on the chart, but with "Roar" having spent two weeks at #1, "Part Of Me" racking up one week and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" also having done a two-week stay, we have to go back to "E.T." in 2011 to find her last single that spent a longer period at the top (five non-consecutive weeks).

The breakdown is as follows (and you can tell what a boring chart week it is if I'm bothering to type out this trash):

1. "I Kissed A Girl", 2008 (seven weeks)
2. "California Gurls", 2010 (six weeks)
3. "Teenage Dream", 2010 (two weeks)
4. "Firework", 2010-11 (four weeks)
5. "E.T.", 2011 (five weeks)
6. "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)", 2011 (two weeks)
7. "Part Of Me", 2012 (one week)
8. "Roar", 2013 (two weeks)
9. "Dark Horse", 2014 (three weeks so far)

And that, folks, is fascinating.

1. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J *3 weeks*
2. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams

My Colbie Caillat Interview

In late December I interviewed Colbie Caillat at the Universal offices here in New York, and that whole shebang is finally online. She talked about recording an album that had a '70s vibe with John Shanks, which was supposed to come out last year, then scrapping it in favor of a more pop album produced by people like Babyface and Ryan Tedder, which will be released in the spring. You can read it over at Idolator.

Mariah Carey's "You're Mine (Eternal)" Is Pretty Great: Listen To The New Single

Maybe it's the news that Robyn is working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, but I have found myself in the mood for some old-school, '80s and '90s R&B lately. So consider me thrilled that Mariah Carey enlisted Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins for her latest single, "You're Mine (Eternal)".

The song premiered just a few minutes ago, and at first it comes off like a rehash of "We Belong Together." But then that chugging synth 'n' bass kick in, and Mimi whistle-shrieks at the end just like old times, and it's all over, friends. It's all over, and we're all the better for it.

Here's the single version...

Annie's political single "Russian Kiss," released to coincide with the Sochi Winter Olympics and to call attention to Russia's barbaric treatment of gays, now has a music video/short film...AND the single is now available on iTunes worldwide!

The song itself, a collaboration with Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard that's produced by Richard X, is in the same vein as Annie's superb A&R EP from last year. The video was directed by Richard Kern, and it features lots of same-sex kissing...and moaning. Enjoy.

US Chart Roundup: We Have Lived To See Beyonce Land Another Top 10 Hit

Following their performance at the Grammys the other week, Beyonce and Jay Z's "Drunk In Love" jumps up from #13 to #2, thus giving Bey her first Top 10 single as a lead artist since "Sweet Dreams" hit #10 in 2009. The last time this classy broad was seen in the Top 10 altogether was when she featured on Lady Gaga's "Telephone," which climbed to #3 in 2010. "Drunk In Love" also marks Beyonce's highest-charting single since "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" reached #1 in 2008.



Pharrell Williams' "Happy" also makes its first appearance in the Top 10 this week, at #8. The retro-sounding soul track, already a #1 hit in the UK, Germany, France and Australia, is off the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack (and will also serve as the first single off Pharrell's upcoming sophomore album). I like that jam.

On a final note, Shakira and Rihanna's "Can't Remember To Forget You" rebounds, following the premiere of the lesbian fest video, and jumps 46 positions to #15. Personally, I thought the whole thing needed more scissoring, but that's just me.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J *2 weeks*
2. "Drunk In Love" - Beyonce feat. Jay Z
3. "Timber" - Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
4. "Talk Dirty" - Jason Derulo feat. 2 Chainz
5. "Counting Stars" - OneRepublic

Annie Teases "Russian Kiss": Preview The Richard X-Produced Gay Rights Single

Annie and longtime producer Richard X weren't done collaborating with last summer's The A&R EP. The Norwegian minx is releasing a new X-helmed sigle this Friday (February 7) called "Russian Kiss," to coincide with the Winter Olympics and to highlight the absurdity of Russia's anti-gay laws. A short film is said to be accompanying the song once it's released.

Annie posted a snippet of the track, which features fellow Norwegian Bjarn Melgaard, a painter. It doesn't sound too dissimilar from the stuff on The A&R EP, which, if you ask me, is just fine.

Katy B's 'Little Red': Get This Album (And Listen To All The Tracks Right Here)

If you're still not hip to the notion that flame-wigged British chanteuse Katy B has the first great album of 2014 with Little Red, then give a listen to the album sampler below.

As I wrote on Idolator yesterday, "The singer weaves her words atop retro synths and club grooves straight out of the Bush, Sr. and Clinton eras on tracks like 'Next Thing,'' '5 AM,' 'Aaliyah' and 'I Like You,; all to the benefit of everyone’s ’90s throwback sensibilities. It’s not all oonce-oonce-oonce, however, as Katy dabbles with old-school R&B on 'Tumbling Down' and straight-up ’80s synth balladry on current UK chart hit 'Crying For No Reason' and the moody 'Emotions'."

Listen to snippets of each track and pick Little Red up in the UK on February 10, or whenever the eff it's out in the States.

Robyn Is Recording With Jimmy Jam (And, One Would Presume, Terry Lewis)

We all knew that Robyn has been cracking away at making new music to (hopefully) be released sometime in 2014, but what we didn't know is that she's paired up with Jimmy Jam – aka the man who, along with Terry Lewis, is behind such pop classics as Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do Without You" (and every other Janet jam you can think of), Karyn White's "Romantic," Human League's "Human," Jordan Knight's "Give It To You," Usher's "U Remind Me" and Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee."

So I didn't pay too much attention to Terence Trent D'Arby's third album Symphony Or Damn upon its release in 1993, though I did see him open for Duran Duran that summer in Cleveland, and, in, turn, most likely watched him perform the album's fourth single "Let Her Down Easy" (a #18 hit in the UK).



So now that George Michael has covered and premiered the song as the first single off his upcoming album Symphonica, I'm kind of smitten with it. George does an okay job, but Terence's version is truly amazing. (I say this, of course, after knowing the song for all of one day.)

Ahoy from the Land Of People Not Watching The Super Bowl! So, remember how Sophie Ellis-Bextor's new album Wanderlust surprisingly debuted at #4 on the UK album chart last week? Good news: This week it only slips one spot down, to #5. I know, I know — sexy glamour, right? Further to that, lead single "Young Blood" moves up 21 positions to #34, giving Sophe her highest single on the chart since "Bittersweet" made it to #25 in 2010.

Naturally, Sophie's pretty excited:

And that brings us to Katy B, whose fantastic synth jam "Crying For No Reason" debuts at #5, thus becoming her first Top 10 single from the Little Red era (previous two singles "What Love Is Made Of" and "5 AM" peaked at #21 and #14, respectively). Altogether, Katy has landed four Top 10 hits in the UK, the highest-charting one being 2010's "Lights On," which made it to #4.
