We Can't Stop' just debuted, and Miley sure is doing whatever she wants. The video finds our girl at a house party where she literally just has fun with her friends. I think it's a really cool video, and I'm glad Miley's finally getting out of the Hannah Montana phase. There are some really cool visuals like a skull made out of french fries and a scene where a girl "slices" her fingers off and a pink goo comes out. And of course, the video wouldn't be complete without Miley twerking. She may be a white girl who can't twerk, but at least she's trying. I'm loving it, and I'm ready for this flawless beauty to release her album.

Ooh La La' single is a pretty big deal. The group is going for the dance pop sound that is ever so popular right now, and while it's not that great or strong of a song, I have hope for them. They've got some good vocalists in the group, including Simone Battle who was a pop-star-in-the-making on Season 1 of The X Factor. 'Vacation' is a fun summer pop track that's easy to sing along to and might even make you bop your head, but apart from that it's lacking a certain oomph. G.R.L. will stay on my radar, but let's face it, Nicole Scherzinger is the reason why the Pussycat Dolls thrived and she's also the reason why they failed. Give me what you got, Robin!
And here's a cute little video of Britney promoting the new girl group:

After almost a two week drought of music news, I finally have something to post! Fifth Harmony were the girl group created on the second season of The X Factor by Simon Cowell himself, and he mentored the group into what we all assumed would be a smash hit group. After having released debut single last night, I can say that we may finally see a girl group dominate the American charts once again. Their single 'Miss Movin' On' is a big pop track that sees the girls blend their unique vocals, and craft a catchy track that could rule the airwaves this summer. It's very much in the same vein as One Direction's music, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. They've got the girl power thing going for them, and if Simon markets them well, we may have an American girl group to root for. It's been too long for my liking.

Ashtrays and Heartbreaks' and will.i.am's 'Fall Down'. Miley has been teasing the release of her new single since the Billboard Music Awards, and at long last the highly-anticipated track is here. It's a much different sound than I expected to hear from her. It's a more laid-back R&B sound, and it also marks the shift that we are about to experience in music. The pop scene is moving away from electronic dance music to more of an urban pop sound, which Lady GaGa and Britney Spears are quietly crafting in the studio right now. Back to the song, this is a shout out to all of her fans for sticking by her through thick and thin. Miley proclaims that "It's my mouth, I can say what I want to." It's great to hear her taking control and not apologizing for her past actions. I'm in love, and Milegend is coming back to slay.
