♥♥ The highly anticipated music video “I Want You” from Theophilus London is finally here! The video was directed by the lovely Va$htie and is the first single from his mixtape of the same name. With Marvin Gaye vocals backing Theophilus’ rhymes, the black and white video delivers the same seductiveness as the track. It co-stars Glenn Aya Lovrich. Check it out!
♥♥ Lady Gaga’s futuristic 8-minute video “Alejandro”, directed by Steven Klein is full of S&M heat and fetish imagery. As usual, Gaga rocks a variety of looks and there’s even a part in the video reminiscent of Madonna’s “Vogue.”
♥♥ With football (aka soccer) mania quickly approaching, The FADER has joined forces with Nike Sportswear to present six mixtapes featuring music from six continents (sorry, Antarctica) for the Nike Sportswear x The FADER’s Pitch Perfect Mixtape Series. Each mixtape will include music unique to the particular continent and features brand new artwork by Siggi Eggertsson.

Both versions made it to #1 on the Billboard charts.
♥♥ Just in time for summer, J*DaVeY releases “Lazy Daze”, the first leak from the upcoming eViL chRistiAn cOp EP. I love this!
