The 10 Best Songs Of Summer 2013

Sadly, summer 2013 is coming to an end. Hopefully, you’ve gotten all of your vacationing, tanning, lounging and barbecuing out of the way and created a ton of memories to keep you laughing until next June. Although fall is peaking around the corner, this summer’s soundtrack has provided us with some jams that will be sure to remind us of the fabulous summer of 2013. Here is a list of our favorite songs from this summer that are sure to put you back into the summer mindset each time you play them! Read more at Hello Beautiful…

Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Slow Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In “Holy Grail” Music Video

Holy Grail!
Jay Z & Justin Timberlake Show Things Down, Find New Uses For Bed Sheets In "Holy Grail" Music Video
Watch The Video!

Since Hov only films six-hour performances with his fancy artist friends on special occasions (see: “Picasso Baby”) consider this just released video for “Holy Grail” to be the first true music video off his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The video features Jay and guest vocalist Justin Timberlake wandering around aimlessly in a poorly lit, gothic warehouse of sorts, where dancers wrapped in white sheets dance to the occasionally slowed down track. Justin really went to town with the flat iron, huh? There’s a champagne glass pyramid and an inexplicable fire too. Maybe Justin got mad that “Holy Grail” is better than every song on The 20/20 Experience so he got all mad and turned into “Firestarter”? Yeah, I said it. [Facebook]

Eric Mean Melin Air Guitar Champion
This guy can thrash some air!

Dear Eric (or do you prefer to be called “Mean Melin”?),

I just watched your performance at the 2013 Air Guitar World Championships in Finland, and all I can say is: wow. You’ve got some serious moves, dude. Everyone knows that dating a musician is the worst, but since your instrument is imaginary, I think you might be an exception to the rule. I play a pretty fierce air saxophone, if I do say so myself. Maybe we can jam sometime and see where this goes?

Xoxo,
Winona

Watch: Robin Thicke’s Music Video For “Give It 2 U,” Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing

Watch: Robin Thicke's New "Give It To U" Video, Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing
"Give It 2 U" Featuring Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz

Robin Thicke has found a formula that works for him: Naked girls, plus rappers, plus the Futura font, equals a magical video experience. The video for his new single, “Give It 2 U,” features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, and brings the scantily clad ladies, previously found employing sheep to cover their naked bosoms, to a football field. The Albany Passionettes and the Alabama State Stingettes — two stellar dance teams — shake their booties, while grown ass women in cotton candy outfits prance around, carrying oversized, paper mache bottles of Brut. There’s a shocking amount of product placement; Thicke swigs from a bottle of Remy Martin, the models are delicately planted around the new Beats by Dr. Dre music players, and there’s a Mini Cooper that gets prime real estate. Thicke positions himself as a campy Lothario, a harmless middle-aged Glenn Quagmire type that you really can’t take seriously — but the song is gooooood.  And here’s what else I like about this video, aside from the song, the dancing and the general lighthearted cheekiness: everyone in the video is given credit. The dance teams are named and the solo dancers are named, giving them a level of subjectivity not often seen in music videos. And I’m certainly not mad at that.

Watch: Pearl Jam’s Music Video For “Mind Your Manners”

Watch: Pearl Jam's Music Video For "Mind Your Manners"
Mind Your Manners!

This weekend is the MTV Video Music Awards, celebrating the year’s best music videos you probably only watched on the web since MTV barely plays video anymore. I have an early suggestion for next year’s Video of the Year: the just released video for Pearl Jam’s new single, “Mind Your Manners,” off their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt. Watch it above — it’s awesome! Natural disasters! Bombs! Eddie Vedder thrashing around! And for nostalgia’s sake, let’s revisit when Pearl Jam won a moon man at the 1993 VMAs for their video for “Jeremy,” after the jump… [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »
