My Halloween Music Video Playlist

Halloween isn't just a kids holiday and if you believe your to old for Halloween then you apparently haven't looked in the adult costume section of your nearest party store. Talk about slut-astic! Its the only day of the year you can wear S&M gear on the streets and not be chastised. Other then tons of candy and slut wear, Halloween also offers great music and even better music videos.

So I love making useless playlist for any random holiday and I decided to make a fave Halloween playlist of all my favourite dark and edgy music videos and no 'Thriller' isn't on the list and not because I don't like it but because its the ultrimate Halloween song and really it has no competition So I'll post it as an honourable mention. Well what are you waiting for lets get spooky!

15. Nelly Furtado - Maneater (2008)

I personally think that Nelly Furtado's 'Maneater' video is kind of creepy! Just look at the dark settings and the weirdo with the glowing eyes at the star.

14. Janet Jackson ft. Carly Simon, Missy Elliot & Diddy - Son Of A Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You Remix) (2001)

The Francis Lawrence directed music video features janet and a horde of demonic wome she summoned help her hunt and torement a man that Miss Jackson has beef with.

13. David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj -  Turn Me On (2011)

The whole video scream 'Its ALIVE' from that old Frankenstein movie! 

12. Katy Perry - ET (2011)

Katy looks hella creepy in 'ET' as she plays an alien on a quest to repopulate what I'm guessing is a desolate future Earth. All visuals aside, the songs lyrics are pretty creepy as well.

11. Creature - So High (2011)

Canadian band Creature play a rock concert for a horde of disgusting zombies in their video for their catchy track 'So High'. Very Halloween!

10. Kelis - Get Along With You (1999)

One of my favourite songs of all time! The video is dark and eerie like a Tim Burton directed movie.

09.Christina Aguilera - Fighter (2003)

Dark and downright scary, which is something you don't see from Christina often.

08. Rihanna - Disturbia (2008)

One of my all time fave Rihanna videos. Imagine Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' except with S&M elements added to it with one of the worlds hottest women singing instead.

07. Tamia - Imagination (1998)

Canadian singer Tamia pulls a 'Distubia' like video years befor RiRi ever did

06. Missy Elliot ft. Mocha & Timbaland - Hit Em Wit Da Hee (1998)

This video is pure and classic creative Missy Elliot and its pretty spooky as well

05. Kanye West - Paranoid (2008)

04. Jay-Z ft. Swiss Beatz- On To The Next One (2009)

The video is loaded with dark and occultist themes

03. Natalia Kills - Zombie (2011)

02. Timbaland & Magoo ft. Shaunta Montgomery - Luv 2 Luv U (Remix) (1997)

The haunted house video had cameos from Aaliyah and Ginuwine

01. Kanye West ft. Rick Ross, Jay-Z, & Nicki Minaj- Monster (2010)

The song is called 'Monster' so you should expect it to have one of the most dark and terrifying videos on the list. If correct the video was so immoral and gory that MTV had it banned.

Honourable Mention - Michael Jackson - Thriller

To all my readers I wish you a safe and happy Halloween!!!!

New Music: Ashley Roberts - All In A Day

Former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts has covered singer and choreographer Bobby Newberry song 'All In A Day' produced by The Invaders.

Bobby's name may seem familiar and if so its because he teamed up with former Doll, Melody Thornton on her mixtape cover of La Roux song 'Bulletproof'.

I'll admit I never heard Bobby's original version of this song but I'll say I liked Ashely's version a lot and heres hoping that she releases more music and that goes for all the other former Dolls.

(SoundCloud Player Link: HERE)

Bonus: If you haven't seen Melody Thornton and Bobby Newberry's duet music video for 'Bulletproof' then check that out below.

New Music: K-Os - Nyce 2 Know Ya

K-Os is proving to be quite the versatile artist as he dabbles in numerous genres, commanding them all at a pro level. His latest material that we've heard so far has had a more rock vibe to it compared to the traditional poetic rap type music he best known for.

K-Os is never one of those artist who shy away from experimenting and his new double album titled, BLack on BLonde, will probably be a mix of many different genres.

 One of his new tracks 'Nyce 2 Know Ya', which has been receiving radio play on KISS 92.5 commercial free Mondays, has a very pop sound to it and I actually didn't even realize or expect K-Os to drop a track like this but I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Check it out below.

Music Video: Delia - Africana

Music Video: Jessica Sanchez ft. Apl.De.Ap - Jump In

Uber talented runner up (She should have won the whole show) on last years American Idol season, Jessica Sanchez debuts her debut video/song 'Jump In' featuring fellow Pinoy artist Apl.De.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas.

I'll be honest and say that I'll respectfully  pass this song because I'm not feelin' it to much but I will say I'm very interested to see what else Jessica has to offer.

Music Video: Carly Rae Jepsen - This Kiss

Canadian sensation Carly Rae Jepsen has released the video for her third single 'This Kiss' off of her sophomore album Kiss. The 80's-esque pop song is hot and the accompanying fun visuals did their job so check it out below.

Music Video: Ludacris ft. Kelly Rowland - Representin

Kelly Rowland teams up with Ludacris for his Rico Love produced single, 'Repesentin'  off of Luda's upcoming album Ludaversal.

Music Video: Ciara - Got Me Good

Today CiCi premiered her new video, 'Got Me Good' off of her forthcoming new album, One Woman Army, due in 2013. The video made its debut in Times Square on the Sony JumboTron in honour of Ciara's 27th birthday, which happens to be today.

In my opinion the video is amazing and the choreography is on point but the song just isn't that special to me and it sounds a lot like something she's already made and released. I'm in no way saying the song is bad but it definitely doesn't wow me either but maybe after a few more listen the high octane track will grow on me.

UPDATE: This song def grew on me and I can't stop watching the video (Oct 30th, 2012)

Music Video: Tulisa - Sight Of You

Music Video: Nicki Minaj - Come On A Cone

Nicki Minaj has released a low budget viral video for her track 'Come On  A Cone'. Its one of those videos that are just a bunch of live performances and other mundane situations combined into one. Cameos from Tyga, Birdman, Waka Flocka Flame, Kim Kardashian, Black Chyna and other random people I can't place a name to. The video also promotes the the re-release of her sophomore album (The Re-Up), which is scheduled for a November 19th release.

Singer Battle: Toni Braxton vs. Heather Bright - Hands Tied

Toni Braxton released her sixth album Pulse in 2010 and the album spawned, third single, 'Hands Tied', which is one of my personal faves. Well one of the song writers, Heather Bright, has released the official demo version of the track, which means its time to analyze and decide who sang it better.

Get Into the battle below!

Toni Braxton - Hands Tied

Heather Bright - Hands Tied Demo

THE WINNER: Toni Braxton

I chose Toni because that deep and sensual tone of her voice complimented the song better then, Heathers did in my opinion. Don't get me wrong Heather's version is amazing as well and she deserves tons of credit for writing such a masterpiece but I prefer Toni on the track.

 VOTE below! Decide who YOU think sang it best!

Music Video: Jade Novah - Diamonds (Rihanna Cover)

(photo source:

 Singer/songwriter, Jade Novah and Devin Johnson (producer and the guy responsible for the arrangement of the cover song) have created and remade, Rihanna's new single, 'Diamonds'. Jade makes the song her very own and the duo completely made the song brand new. Check out Jade's powerful video for the song re-make below.

Download Jade Novah's 'Diamonds' HERE

BONUS: When 'Diamonds' first debuted I was a little put off by the song but just like with 'We Found Love' the song wormed its way into my head forcing me love it like the rest of RiRi's audio catalog. Now 'Diamonds' is at the top of my list for my faves at the moment and after hearing many of its other incarnations such as the 'Bimbo Jones (Vocal Remix)', I fell deeper in love with the powerful Sia penned track.

New Music: Sevyn Streeter - I Like It

Former RichGirl and Former TG4 member, Sevyn (now known as Sevyn Streeter) has released her first official debut solo single 'I Like It'. This will be her first solo single under Chris Brown's label CBE (Atlantic Records).

Gloomy, edgy, and artsy pop duo, Wazu has released the official video for their new single, 'Councillor' (first premiered at  off of their upcoming appropriately Halloween release of their debut full length album, Robobo.

I really like 'Councillor' and I'm obsessed with the intro part with that throbbing machine/guitar like sound and the heavy bass as well. The dark video is a perfect match for the song and follows their creepiness theme fantastically.  Check out the eerie video below.

Music Video: Nicki Minaj ft. Cassie - The Boys

Earlier today VEVO premiered, Nicki Minaj's new video/single 'The Boys' featuring Cassie.

 The Collin Tilley directed video is def one of my fave videos even though the concept made absolutely no sense but concept aside, Nicki Minaj is extremely entertaining and fun to watch. Call it my inner child but I like all the weird faces and bold colours.

My only problem is as much as I found it enjoyable I'm sure tons of little kids will as well and the lyrical content and visual content isn't exactly child friendly. Videos like this and Katy Perry's 'California Gurls' are kind of deceptive but kids shouldn't really be listening to Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry in the first place. Anyway check out the video below.

Israeli singer, actor, writer, and much more,  Meital Dohan has teamed up with Jamaican born singer, Sean Kingston for her electronic club track , 'On Ya'. The song doesn't have enough vocal content in my opinion and Meital almost seems like the feature in her own song. Anyway check out her quirky and fun video below.

Flow 93.5 played Toronto Ontario,  singer Andreena Mills new song 'Boss Chick'. So I proceeded to look the song up on YouTube and the first thing I see is a video called "R.I.P. MissMill"! I was shocked and then I was like she's dead? How? When? Well it turns out Adreena Mills is very much alive and talented and if I didn't jump to assumptions I would've realised that Andreena is just killing off the Mills part of her name and just going as Andreena now. She'll explain the whole event below.

Anyway her new song 'Boss Chick' is pure fire and the track oozes pure confidence. Download it and check it out for free via Soundcloud. Don't forget to look out for Andreena's upcoming mixtape Naked.

Music Video: P!nk - Try

I've never been a huge P!nk fan but every now and then she releases music that I will enjoy. Her music videos on the other hand are always watch worthy no mater what the song is thats accompanying the visuals.

I love her latest video/single, 'Try' from her her surprisingly refreshing sixth studio album, The Truth About Love (Sept 14th). The song is beautiful and the powerful visuals and stunning interpretive dancing by P!nk and her male co-star are worth a watch.
