Grab the Kleenex. Muy guapo out-and-proud singer Ricky Martin has just released the clip for ‘Disparo Al Corazon,’ which features reflections of same-sex couples reflecting on their wedding day, sensually mixed with Martin’s own reflections as he sings into a mirror. The tearjerking track, which translates to ‘Shot to the Heart,’ is off Ricky’s recent Spanish-language album, A Quien Quiera Esucha, which means ‘To Whom Ever May Listen.’ After seeing this moving video, everyone should be listening to Mr. Martin…did we mention he’s very easy on the eyes, too? Especially now that he’s getting older…he’s seemingly ageless.

Yesterday, Diplo’s dancehall trio Major Lazer announced their new album, ‘Peace is the Mission,’ which is set to hit headphones everywhere on June 1st. While we can be sure that Lazer’s latest set will be chock full of crazy beats, it’s also going to be loaded with music guest stars, including Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. The set’s lead single, ‘Lean On,’ featuring Dutch singer MØ has been making us dance for about a month now, and now its India set video has also just been released. Of the stunning clip, Philly’s Diplo told Billboard, “India is special and its beauty absolutely humbled me. When we toured there as Major Lazer, it was mind blowing to see our fan-base and we wanted to incorporate the attitude and positive vibes into our video and just do something that embodies the essence of Major Lazer.” Get lost in the video for “Lean On” below.
