Looking for something to do while you patiently wait for that team to take on that other team during Sunday’s night’s big sports game? Than why not jump eyeballs first into this week’s Weekend Music Video Real, which is locked and loaded with the latest visual offerings from Allen Stone, Timbaland, Leon Bridges, Shawn Mendes, Puff Daddy, and one Super Bowl halftime performance that no one’s ever forgotten or stopped taking about…ever.
Allen Stone/”A Perfect World” Turn your winter frown upside down by diving right into this sunny video provided by the soulful Mr. Stone.
Puff Daddy & The Family/”Blow a Check”/Bad Boy Remix No, it’s not 19997, Puff Daddy and his Family are back, only this time Zoey Dollaz and French Montana to help lend a hip hop hand.
Shawn Mendes/”Stitches” Because what could be better than seeing your current favorite crooner sing his smash hit, “Stitches,” live? Absolutely nothing.
Timbaland/Mila J/”Don’t Get No Betta” Go on with this hot new video, Mr. Timbo.
Transviolet/”New Bohemia” Katy Perry is a big fan of this fun indie-pop group, and after one glance at their latest release you’ll know exactly why.
Leon Bridges/”River” Just watch and let Mr. Bridges take you away with his soulful sounds once again.
Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake/THAT Super Bowl performance from 2004 Really, how can we ever forget this ? Hey there, “Nipplegate.”
While we could easily sit in the music locker room and spill tea about every piece of pulsating thunder that’s laced on the sacred five volumes of Jock Jams, we’re just going to get down to business and get musically ready to rumble with “The Jock Jams Megamix.”
A pure slice of pom-poms heaven that kicks off with the infamous WWF catchphrase, “Let’s get ready to rumble,” the three-minute blender of gym ready beats features all of the back-in-the-day dance floor ditties, including Technotronic’s “Pump up the Jam,” Tag Team’s “Whoomp(There It Is),” The Bucketheads, “Da Bomb,” and many, many other classics that are guaranteed to get you ready for the Beyoncé concert, err, that big ol’ sports game that’s about to take over our lives this Sunday.
Anyone remember what it’s called?
If you were to ask anyone in the music world to compile a list of their favorite songs from the ’90s, there’s a very good chance that the dearly departed Biggie Smalls’ classic fire, “Mo Money Mo Problems,” would be at the top of everyone’s list. So much more than a Jock Jam, the life starter anthem is the perfect blend of hip hop-meets-Diana Ross and would continue on to hold its place as being one of the most highly regarded hip hop tracks of all time.
Released as the second single from his blockbuster double-disc set, Life After Death, Biggie’s bombastic beat owned the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, replacing “I’ll Be Missing You,” which as we all know, was Mr. Puff’s tribute single that was released a few months after Biggie’s unfortunate death in 1997. “Mo Money, Mo Problems” also became The Notorious B.I.G.’s second number one single after his death following “Hypnotize,” which would make the late, great music superstar the only music artist in Hot 100 history to notch two #1 singles posthumously.
Go on, Mr. Smalls.
