Yeah, right. You can’t fool us Nicki, we know it’s your booty.

Of course, the Young Money starlet’s twerking brought the thirst to her ‘Gram.

This summer is bound to be incredible, especially with so many of our favorite pop acts hitting the road! One Direction, Austin Mahone, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony are all going on tour this summer, and we are super pumped to see them all in concert. But with so many incredible acts, there’s bound to be one that just makes you a tiny bit more excited than the rest. It’s a tough choice, but here ya go: Whose summer tour are you most psyched to see?

The guys of One Direction are embarking on their Where We Are World Tour this spring, and it’s going to be unbelievable for so many reasons. As if the guys weren’t swoon-worthy enough, they recently just released their ‘You and I’ music video, and you know they’re looking good in that vid. Plus, we just saw the first pictures of their tour stage, and it is beyond enormous — which leaves plenty of room for Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn to perform and even kick up some awesome hijinks.

Austin Mahone recently announced his 2014 tour dates, and he will travel across the U.S. beginning this July in support of his much-anticipated full-length album, ‘The Secret.’  Mahone’s tour will not disappoint, as the Vamps, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes and Alex Angelo will also open on select dates. Amazing!

Future Talks Drake, Nicki Minaj, & André 3000 in CRWN Interview

future crwn Future Talks Drake, Nicki Minaj, & André 3000 in CRWN Interview

With his album Honest in stores, Future sat down with Elliott Wilson in his hometown of Atlanta earlier this week for his CRWN interview series. The self-proclaimed “king of turn up” discussed everything from his relationship with fiancée Ciara to his many collaborators including Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, who he worked with on “Rockstar Life.”

While the record didn’t make his album because George Michael did not approve the sample, he still wants to release it in the future, possibly on the Freeband Gang compilation.

He also revealed how he inspired Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and how they mended their issues to collaborate on “Never Satisfied.” “It’s bigger than that for me. It’s always been about the music,” said Future.

He once again addressed the confusion surrounding Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love.” He was in the studio with Detail, who asked him to help out with the record, which inspired his Honest outtake “Good Morning.” He planned to put that on his album in November, but Beyoncé beat him to it and released her surprise album in December.

Hannah Diamond – “Attachment”


artworks 000077349742 ulqf0b t500x500 Hannah Diamond – “Attachment”

British singer Hannah Diamond feels and sounds like a pop star on “Attachment,” but with something slightly off. There’s the odd music-box melody, slight pitch-shifting to her voice, and those glistening/glitching beats that are so polished they give off sun glare. Then there’s the faint sadness of the starry-eyed hook as Diamond lovingly sings, “Though I love you baby, it feels kind of crazy every time you see me I’m on my own/ Feeling better really, I can see you clearly now I’ve saved you as a picture on my phone,” before her voice warps and spirals off into electronic chirps, losing any human quality. Right there with SOPHIE’s demolishing 2013 single “BIPP,” “Attachment” is bubblegum hyperreality and absolutely stunning for it. Listen and download it below.

(via Fact)

“Attachment” is out now via PC Music.
