100 million views, but did you notice the subtleties?

Dua Lipa released her music video for New Rules just over a month ago and the MV recently hit over 100 million views on YouTube.

The music video did so well not just because of its catchy tune but its unconventional storytelling style really appealed and resonated with a big percentage of the young singer's audience.

The empowering female anthem is accompanied by the portrayal of a group of friends helping Dua get over a recent breakup. And in return, the 22-year-old singer was able to likewise with her new found confidence.

If you were part of the group of people who contributed to most of the 100 million views, you would have noticed that a lot of symbolism was present which made everything that much cooler.

Flamingos were the reflection of the women in the music video and apparently these pink creatures are used to symbolise femininity and confidence. Some have discovered that the sofa in the living room represents either the toxic relationship or the ex-significant other.

We gonna gif it up!!!

In celebration of Fifth Harmony's self-titled studio album, we have decided to take a closer look at the LP track list because 25 August still seems a little too far away for us to wait for the big reveal of all the tunes.

Although the musical quartet has already dropped Down and Angel, these releases just don't seem to satisfy our eagerness to hear the album in entirety.

Since they have teased us with the titles of the songs, we thought that it would be interesting to predict what these tracks would sound like through the representation of gifs. Here's what we have come up with!

 

1. Down

 

2. He Like That

 

3. Sauced Up

 

4. Make You Mad

 

5. Deliver

 

6. Lonely Night

 

7. Don't Say You Love Me

 

8. Angel

 

9. Messy

 

10. Bridges

Light in a world of darkness.

American Hip Hop recording artist Lecrae recently released the music video for his latest single, I'll Find You, with Tori Kelly.

The music video starts off with a young, bedridden patient fighting for her life in the hospital as her worried parents stay by her side. It continues with the little girl having an out-of-body experience as she goes around to the other wards to give hugs to her fellow friends who are battling against cancer.

As a result of her hopeful disposition, the cancer patients exude a sense of happiness and joy despite their failing bodily conditions. The music video ends with names and ages of real patients wearing t-shirts with the words "We Won't Stop" printed on them followed by a website for viewers to donate and support the wonderful cause of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Lecrae describes this video as "his heartbeat" and a way of him showing his pain and passion for others, reminding them that there is hope present in chaos. Tori Kelly shares the same sentiments and added that she hopes this music video will encourage and bless someone out there.

Pre-Fetus Harmony.

Today, Fifth Harmony is known as a multi-platinum selling girl group with numerous awards and millions of fans all around the world.

Harmonizers who have supported the girls from the very beginning will be able recite the 5H origin story from memory - contestants who auditioned for The X Factor as solo artists were eliminated but brought back before the judges to form the girl group that we all know and love today.

Although many fans are very knowledgeable and well-versed about all things in the 5H world, it seems like not everyone has actually heard their singing chops before their first audition on The X Factor. So let's take a look, shall we?

The answer is simple - change.

The ladies of Fifth Harmony recently attended the iGo.Live social media launch party at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and had a little chat with Entertainment Tonight about everything that has been going on lately in the 5H world.

Ally Brooke started the interview by saying that the group has been the happiest that they have ever been and that there are so many exciting things happening for the group.

When asked about their upcoming album, Lauren Jauregui revealed that it has been the most authentic sound that the girls have ever made to which Normani Kordei chimed in to say that the body of work really just shows the growth that they had. Dinah Jane acknowledged that this project is very special to the band because they fought very hard to be more creatively involved in the writing process this time round.

Fifth Harmony admitted that they went through a phase where they were treated like robots but they have been very grateful that their current management remembers that they are humans and schedules them according to that very fact.

Theories, theories, theories.

After teasing her fans with snapshots and an unconventional audio lip visual, Selena Gomez finally released the official music video for her latest single Fetish.

Just like her music video for Bad Liar, the symbolism present in Fetish isn't easily understood after the first watch. And even after analysing it several times over, there is still a possibility that some people might not attain that lightbulb moment.

As a result, many questions from confused viewers seeking for clarity and understanding flooded the comments section. Thankfully, some intelligent fans collaborated to point out the significance of the music video.

The theory that the fans came up with states that the storyline isn't just about a crazy girl who eats soap but the music video addresses the problem that we have with appearing seemingly happy in front of everyone but we ultimately tear ourselves down when no one is watching.

It is further elaborated by saying that we tend to believe that we aren't good enough for ourselves but if there is someone who is fascinated by us or loves us, we will stay no matter how awful the relationship is because it somehow gives us worth.

From Ke$ha to Kesha.

After almost 5 years away from the music scene, Kesha has finally made her triumphant return with her hit Praying. This is the first single from her third studio album, Rainbow, that will be dropping later this year in August.

During her absence from the spotlight, the 30-year-old singer went through many struggles which include the long legal case with her former manager and producer, Dr Luke. He was sued by her for sexual assault and emotional manipulation to which he denied.

The beginning of the Praying music video starts with a monologue by the pop star herself. She revealed the depths of her heart by describing the unbearable pain she was feeling to the point where she wanted to end this life on earth, and all she was hoping for was a sign from above.

Praying takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride, leaving you with constant goosebumps throughout the song as it addresses that the only way to really let go of the painful past and move on is not to wish the worst for your enemies but instead pray good things for those who have hurt you.

#SisterGoals

Sarah Bauer recently took a trip to visit her younger sister, Jess Conte, who now resides in the US since her marriage to American YouTuber, Gabriel Conte. After being apart from each other for 6 months, Sarah and Jess decided to film a sister tag to answer some questions people had for them on Twitter.

Amongst sharing their favourite movies and testing the strength of their sister telepathy, the pair sang a few seconds of Sam Smith's I'm Not The Only One and Justin Bieber's Love Yourself.

The sister duo delivered perfect harmonies as the tonality of their vocals complemented each other in a way that was almost magical. The performance of the two songs were so spontaneous, making those few seconds that much precious.

As long as Sarah is still in America, we hope that the she will team up with Jess again to do full-on a cappella covers because those few seconds were not enough to satisfy our ears that long for good old classic harmonies.

Check out 5:35 of the video for the mini covers of I'm Not The Only One and Love Yourself by Sarah Bauer and Jess Conte here:

FBI Harmonizers, where y'all at?

The biggest girl group of our generation, Fifth Harmony, is known for their loyal and dedicated fan base who are also known as the Harmonizers.

Not only are Harmonizers supportive, they are rather impatient. The saying "good things come to those who wait" does not apply to this group of people. When the girl group announces that they are about to drop something but takes too long to do so, the detectives in these Harmonizers are somehow activated.

We are glad to say that we are part of this fandom who fearlessly support these girls who fight for their dreams everyday. And in anticipation of their third studio album (coming out really soon), we have gathered 8 facts/speculations about the LP.

 

1. Down is the first single from #5H3

 
 

2. Gucci Mane who was featured in Down is a hint as to how the rest of album is going to sound like.

 

3. #5H3 consists of pop melodies and dark urban tones with the R&B flare.

 

4. The ladies of Fifth Harmony co-wrote more than half of the album.

 

5. Because Fifth Harmony was more creatively involved in this project, the stories told through the songs are more tailored to who they are and their experiences, making it a more authentic body of work.

 

6. The album shows growth - the relationship of the girls with one another and how they uplift each other as human beings.

 

7. There is a song in particular that addresses the importance of uniting and showing love to the world.

 

8. "Pumped" - either a song title or a word within a song in the album.

This is speculated because during their Billboard interview. Normani and Lauren spontaneously burst into what seemed like choreography to one of their songs when the interviewer mentioned the word "pumped". (Check out 6:17 of the video)

Maddie Fitzpatrick & Bailey Pickett.

Fans of the Mickey Mouse network would definitely be elated to know that former Disney stars Ashley Tisdale and Debby Ryan have teamed up to sing a slowed down version of the Destiny's Child classic, Say My Name.

Ashley Tisdale's Music Sessions are known on YouTube for being ultimate throwback childhood memories for many. She enjoys inviting past cast mates and friends from the Disney Channel to sing alongside her in this popular YouTube series.

Her husband, Christopher French, is a genius at rearranging old songs and sonically giving them brand new twists. And it was no exception this time with the 90s hit. Ashley, together with Debby, delivered perfect harmonies and we honestly wished there was more.

The ladies revealed that they have never worked together before but have remained friends for a very long time. However, we would just like to point out that Ashley Tisdale did guest star on one of the episodes of Suite Life On Deck as Maddie Fitzpatrick with Debby Ryan as Bailey Pickett! (did they forget that?)
