Artist Of The Week: Little Mix
The British pop firecrackers are back and on fierce form with ‘Shout Out To My Ex’, the first single from their forthcoming new album, Glory Days. The track has already become a revenge anthem around the country and with a video which sees the girls having fun in the Spanish desert (whilst looking fabulous we might add) it’s a sure-fire global smash. Check it out now in the girls’ Artist Of The Week playlist and enjoy their entire video catalogue which includes ‘Black Magic’, ‘Love Me Like You’ and ‘Move’.
VidZone loves Halloween and we figured you do too, so load up your PlayStation’s and prepare to get your scare on! We’ve prepared 3 ghoulish playlists with the best pop, alternative and rock music videos that feature all of the things that go bump in the night. But that’s not all, head to the Halloween Hits TV channel where you can watch them all non-stop – perfect for that scare-fest of a party you’ve been cooking up … It’s all treats and no tricks with us.
Following up a Grammy Award-winning song and video with more than one billion views is a big ask, however Bruno Mars is up for the challenge with his hugely-anticipated new single ‘24K Magic’. The track again takes inspiration from the retro funk and soul era that ‘Uptown Funk’ paid homage to and the casino-themed video was also directed by Mar’s long-term collaborator, Cameron Duddy. We’ve placed the Artist Spotlight on the singer so you can now watch all of his videos, including the new clip, in one place.
- Bruno Mars – ‘24K Magic’
- Zara Larsson – ‘Ain’t My Fault’
- Robbie Williams – ‘Party Like A Russian’
- Dua Lipa – ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)’
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, otherwise known as The Chainsmokers, have soared into the mainstream dance arena and held their own since their breakout 2014 hit ‘#Selfie’. It’s been an upwards ride with further chart smashes including ‘Roses’ with singer-songwriter Rozes and ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ featuring 18yr old pop newcomer Daya. And now the New York duo have finally unleashed the official video for ‘Closer’, their No. 1 single with Halsey who also stars in the clip depicting the tale of a broken relationship. Watch it in the Dance Zone and creep up the charts undoubtedly.
