2013 is off to an impressive musical start with Azealia Banks dropping the buzz single ‘BBD’ from her highly anticipated debut album ‘Broke with Expensive Taste’ – out on 12 February. BBD was produced by Apple Juicy Kid and Sup Doodle. The first official single from the album is titled “Miss Amor” with b-side “Miss Camaraderie”.
In addition to this, it is all but officially confirmed that Beyonce, Rihanna and Azealia will feature on Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP album track ‘Ratchet’. The artists have all dropped various hints on social media and Azealia confirmed it in a media interview last year. The track is produced by DJ White Shadow and the video is set to be the sequel to Paparazzi and Telephone but may be directed by Steven Klein as opposed to Jonas Akerlund (who directed the previous two clips).
COULD THE CONCEPT OF THIS VIDEO BE ANY MORE AMAZING? Britney, Gaga and Beyonce – ALL KARLISMYUNKLE flawless HBIC icons tearing up London town. Probably not. However in an ideal world, someone would post this on YouTube with a different track – maybe the Telephone demo/original version mashup so that we can have BRITNEY, GAGA AND KING B’s voices. Yes, that would be rather amazing. ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TAKE THIS TASK ON, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
The song and music genre aside, kudos to the Kaiser Chiefs on pulling this off though. It is about to go massively viral. Half desperate, half brilliant and definitely the best video in the WORLD since last week’s Rihanna We Found Love.
UPDATE: I DID IT MYSELF – ORIGINAL VERSION UNDER THE CUT, GO BUY IT ON ITUNES ETC.
As you might know, this month’s L’Uomo Vogue features the lady of the moment and Glastonbury 2011 headliner, Beyonce. Although I am not a huge fan of her new album ‘4’ – aside from the tracks Run The World (Girls) and End of Time – I do love her previous work, her alter ego Sasha Fierce and what Beyonce stands for as an entertainer and industry icon.
The clip below shows some great behind the scenes footage from the L’Uomo Vogue shoot, photographed by Francesco Carrozzini.
After literally weeks of anticipation and probably some of the worst industry management faux-pas from a certain record label that shall remain anonymous, the video for Beyoncé’s Run The World (Girls), finally hit on American Idol last night, and FUCK YES IT IS AMAZING. The choreography is undoubtedly going to be replicated all over clubs and YouTube for the next decade. Sadly, the track didn’t break iTunes last night (it is still at number 60), but will hopefully climb later this week. Directed by the incredible Francis Lawrence (Bad Romance, Circus, Cry Me a River), check out the video in full under the cut. Queen B worked with eight different choreographers for this, including Frank Gatson and Sheryl Murakami – you can tell (but not in an inconsistency way).
Oh and my favourite moment from the video? This face. The epitome of I am Sasha Fierce.
UPDATE: Here is the album cover for 4
In line with the hugely agonising wait for Beyonce’s video for Girls (Who Run The World) that is now set to drop in just over a week, here is the flashmob-esque video for a reworked version of B’s hit ‘Get Me Bodied’ dubbed ‘Move Your Body’ – part of Beyonce and Michelle Obama’s CSR programme to promote fitness amongst the US youth. Choreography by longtime Beyonce collaborator, Frank Gatson Jr.
The official/non-demo version of Beyonce’s new single ‘Girls (Who Run The World)’ finally hit today. Albeit in a somewhat unofficial/leaked capacity. Columbia Records REALLY needs to get on it and push this for immediate download, otherwise it will simply not sell. Sony and Interscope are really leading the industry in this immediate digital consumerism era. The song is super uptempo and samples Major Lazer (i.e. Diplo + Switch). I’m cool with this, it works. Check it out under the cut.
As previously promised, more than once on KARLISMYUNKLE, we can finally share with you one of the never-been-seen photos of Beyonce from Tom Ford’s comeback catwalk show in September, shot exclusively by Terry Richardson. The photo is taken from the January 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar via the jackals at ONTD. Incredible.
Tom Ford made his long-awaited womenswear comeback on Sunday night. It went down phenomenally well. The photos? The intricate details? ALL under strict NDA until January (apparently). Photographer Terry Richardson was the official and ONLY snapper for the night and the images are being held back. Did some of them leak? Officially, no. Did someone break the embargo? It looks like it. Cathy Horyn posted some behind-the-scenes photos on On the Runway (one of our favourite and best written fashion blogs, ever). Will she get in trouble for it? It is Cathy Horyn and the NYT – probably not.
What else leaked? Some super sexy head shots of the celeb cast including Julianne Moore, Beyonce, Daphne Guinness, Lauren Hutton and more. We’ll make to share Terry’s images once they finally hit (in January). Stay tuned.
Remember when we told you about Beyoncé’s (relatively unexciting) House of Dereon collection? Well girlfriend has really stepped up her game for the Autumn/Winter 10-11 collection by channelling her inner Rihanna and generally being a badass Honey B.
Even better, she’s released a fresh promo video. Thankfully, the new edition is a little more fashion orientated than the previous instalment (read: Catherine Zeta-in-Entrapment rip off).
