N.Y.C. Underground Party Groove of the Day/Hani/”Baby Wants to Ride”

Today’s groove is a real dance treat…

Kicking off the classic N.Y.C. Underground Party set is DJ Hani’s “Baby Wants to Ride,” a soaring club anthem that’s packed with plenty of pulsating punch and spine tingling synths. The blazing club banger went on to strike gold at the top spot on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, leading Mr. Hani to continue his thunderous reign remixing smashes for Michael Jackson (“Earth Song“), Pink (“There You Go“), Lisa Stansfield (“Never, Never Gonna Give You Up”), and many, many more artists whose tracks he’s taken and made into certifiable destructive dance floor ditties. 

While it may be only Tuesday, one romp with Hani’s “Baby,” and you’ll forget all about it.

Mixtape Music News/Divas Edition

1.Zendaya owns the cover this month’s Hunger magazine….

Werk, Ms. “Replay“….

Helmed as “music’s new queen,” Ms. Zendaya (who owned the Miss America red carpet last night as well) covers the September issue of Hunger magazine, and In an exclusive excerpt from the music tea, the young starlet is letting us know that she’s not playing when it comes to the world throwing shade her way because of her age..

The nineteen-year -old songstress spilled, “Of course I’ve had a problem with people taking me seriously because of my age,” Zendaya told the magazine. “People are always going do that because you’re less experienced, you haven’t lived as much. And in a sense it is true that there are certain things that you only learn with time. But I think that there are also a lot of things that young people know that older people don’t, and older people will never understand again because they’re in a different section of their lives.”

She was also vocal about not being afraid making sure you have a voice, but use it wisely if you know you’ve got it, dishing, “Don’t raise your voice just to raise your voice, if have nothing behind it and don’t know what you’re talking about. But if you take the time to learn about something, and educate yourself, then you have a voice, and you’re allowed to use it.”

Music truth at its very finest on a Monday. 

2.Is Britney picking at Lindsay Lohan’s man leftovers?

You know what they say….one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure.

This past weekend, Britney Spears was spotted at dinner with restaurateur Harry Morton, according everyone favorite’s pop culture bible, Us Weekly

Back in 2006, Mr. Morton was shacking up with LiLo, but the troubled couple threw in the towel after the struggle to make it work–over and over again–became a little too real. 

While theres no official word on the supposed newfound pairing, Britney did break up with boyfriend Charlie Ebersol this past summer, and as we all know in the rebound game, anything is possible. 

3.Simon Cowell really wants Adele and Janet to perform on The X Factor this season.

The X Factor diva himself, Mr. Simon Cowell is supposedly pulling out all the stops when it comes to booking all the A-list divas who will take the stage on this season of the UK’s The X Factor. On his sights are chanteuses Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Rihanna,  Janet Jackson and the comeback queen herself, Ms. Adele. The X Factor, now in its 647th season, is reportedly getting a little lost in the ratings and there’s rumblings that Ms. Simon Cowell is really sharpening his music talons when it comes to getting…all of them. 

There’s also rumors that One Direction (Cowell owns them) have also been booked to perform in what will be one of their (gasp!) last televised appearance before their amicable split next year.

By now we know if there’s anyone that knows how to snatch up talent, it’s certainly the V-necked T-shirt diva himself, Ms. Simon. 

4.What’s really going on with that Whitney Houston hologram??

Last week we all clutched our music pearls in hearing the news that Ms. Whitney Houston would be resurrected through hologram life sometime next year. Thanks in part to a collaboration between Pat Houston, President of the Whitney Houston Estate, and Greek billionaire Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA, we will get to witness Whitney in all of her post mortum hologram glory. 

Spilling Whitney tea with Billboard, creator David says the Whitney’s hologram will incorporate both “live components” drawing from the late singer’s own live performances, a well as “digital components, in the same way that Tupac and Snoop Dogg interacted onstage at Coachella,”

He also said that the diva will serve it for us in the most Whitney way possible, telling the music mother ship, “The show will not just be Whitney comes on, sings and gets off,” David adds. “The narrative will document parts of her life, her achievements and celebrate Whitney.” 

See you in 2016, Ms. Houston. 

5.A D.C. weatherman gets his ‘”Vogue”‘ on with this week’s forecast….

A Washington, D.C., meteorologist is making the viral rounds after he got into the groove for the Material Girl in preparation for her concert this past weekend with a weather forecast playing out as a playlist of her biggest hits. 

Besides telling viewers, “Hey, don’t just stand there let’s get to it. Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it.,” The infamous Madonna references then came in pointy cone bra fashion as he predicted certain areas would be “touched for the very first time” by rain this month on Saturday…

You just have to watch…it will wash away the Monday.
