HOLY SH*T! Fergie’s New Video “M.I.L.F. $” Is Amazing!

“Fergalicious” 2.0 is here!

It’s a slippery slope to try and beat expectations and the bars set by previous successes. And for Fergie, her comeback album had fans begging for a redux of her first album “The Dutchess.” And after watching the debut of her “M.I.L.F. $” music video, FERGIE DELIVERED!

I spent a while this morning unsuccessfully trying to catch up with the song’s energy. It’s pretty insane and hard swallow in one sitting. But the visual perfectly gels all the different styles of the song and gives the energy an amazing visual to back it up! My jaw dropped with the milky cream colored setup with her dance routine and shot with Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen! I’m not even a casual fan of Kim K. and she looked AMAZING! Literally couldn’t lift my jaw from the ground the entire video!

The video has a million star cameos from hollywood’s hottest moms. But the biggest win of all is the fact that no one makes music videos like our pop divas of the 00’s! The set was colorful and dynamic and gives her original “Fergalicious” a run for it’s money in the aesthetics department.  If you were on the fence about the song on first listen, give the video a chance and “M.I.L.F. $” is certainly the summer’s most high-energy music video! Check it out below!

6 Music Videos (+ Playlist) That Prove INNA is the “Queen of the Summer”

INNA is a “Queen of the #ClubRockers” by night and “Queen of the Summer” by day!



Although summer doesn’t officially begin until June 20th, it is still hot as hell and the sun is out and inspiring a wave of summer music to quench our thirst!

…So stop listening to your father’s Jimmy Buffet, Bob Marley and The Beach Boys music! There’s a GRANDE DAME SUMMER DIVA you may or may not be utilizing during the summer months! Sure Britney Spears, Kesha and Kylie Minogue fulfill all of our party desires throughout the year… But INNA is an exotic pop fruit that is ripest and juiciest in the summertime!

Whether you’re already a fan or need a little convincing: here are a few videos that will immediately immerse you into the finest beats and sounds that are served best with a frozen beverage and tons of sexy swimsuits dripping with water. And don’t worry, I know you’re going to like what you see so I’ve also completed a Spotify playlist at the bottom in conjunction with this flaw-free beachy music video list!


1.) “Cola Song”

Though it’s one of her more pop-leaning tracks, “Cola” is literally the body anthem for everyone working hard for that “Coca-Cola bottle shape” this summer! It’s a great introduction to the fun effervescence of INNA! 

2.) “Amazing”

This song was a major success in Europe when it was released and exemplified her perfection as a dance-house artist with a finely tuned aesthetic for beach-craving music fans! 

3.) “Caliente”

The title says it all, the song and video are HOT! No one makes a beach video like INNA! And do you recognize the guy in the video? That’s Madonna‘s former boy toy, Jesus Luz. INNA has the Queen of Pop’s same taste in men…. Coincidence? I think not. 

4.) “Crazy Sexy Wild”

I love the playfulness of this video. The song really makes you want to take a stroll down Venice Beach and that’s exactly what she did just before snatching that poor man’s tip money. 

5.) “Sun Is Up”

Another masterpiece, INNA commands, “Sun is up! Move your body..” That’s it. She really secured her spot as the “Queen of the Summer!” 

6.) “Endless”

There are so many more videos I could share but just like an endless night partying in the delirium of an Ibiza nightclub, the party must (never) end. “Endless” perfectly cures any party comedown (or hangover) with this flawless house-chillout music video. The video has a domestic violence theme…. but just ignore all that and admire her beauty and the calmness of this song!

INNA is my queen of these summer months and I hope that the videos entice you to incorporate her music into all of your summer adventures! Watch ALL of her music videos on her official YouTube account! And you can follow and stream my playlist with more of her summer-ready jams below!

Music Video Premiere: Ariana Grande – “Dangerous Woman” (Visual 1)

Ariana Grande has revealed what makes her feel dangerous: …Letting her hair down.

Ariana-Ariana, let your hair down the castle walls — So we can climb up and look for that second visual you are promising. This first visual for “Dangerous Woman” is mostly a let down, and only a slight graduation and sequel to her bashfully flirty debut music video “The Way.

I was hoping to hold back any negative critiques of this single until I saw a firm and thoroughly envisioned video. But this video did not prove one vital thing: Ariana Grande does not have the conviction as a performer to sell a sexually suggestive song like this. As if her vocals didn’t feel weak and innocent enough, the video does little to change that. I was hoping that a music video would provide a little more “danger” and deviousness to convince me that she truly wants “to do things that [she] shouldn’t.”

Clearly, the only thing she feels that she shouldn’t be doing is removing the ponytail in this Nickelodeon-grade film/projection noir clip.

Watch Ariana Grande frolic about in front of another projector in her latest music video:
