Hot Video Alert: Natalia Kills feat. Will.I.Am - Free

"Free" is the latest single to come from Natalia Kills' masterful debut album, Perfectionist (out now in America). The song was co-written by Kills, Jeff Bhasker, Kid Cudi, No I.D. and produced by Bhasker, who's worked with artists such as Kanye West, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys. As I said when the single first emerged, "Free" is easily Kills' most commercially accessible single here in America. Of all her singles, "Free" hands down has the most top 40 appeal. I mean, HELLO! will.I.Am! Come on America! It's time you welcomed some Natalia Kills into your life!  While the single has yet to make a dent in the Billboard charts, "Free" was a top 5 hit in Austria and peaked at #23 in Slovakia.

Backed by remixes from Moto Blanco and Bimbo Jones, "Free" has been announced as Kills' official second single in the UK, replacing previously announced single "Wonderland."  The single will be released by Natalia Kills' UK label, Polydor on September 11th, a week before her album Perfectionist is released on September 19th.  Check out the visually stunning video clip, co-directed by Kills and her frequent collaborator Guillaume Doubet.  Make sure you download "Free" on U.S. iTunes HERE and download her album Perfectionist HERE.

Hot Video Alert: Estelle featuring Rick Ross - Break My Heart

I know this video came out AGES ago now but there's never NOT a good time to do an Estelle post, right? "Break My Heart" is the official second single taken from the UK R&B songstress's third album, All Of Me, featuring American rapper Rick Ross. The single was released back in May when it peaked at #33 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart.

"Break My Heart" is the follow up to 2010's John Legend-assisted "Fall In Love," and the promotional club-friendly track "Freak." It's no wonder that Estelle has been taking her sweet time with this new album, considering the fact that none of the previously released songs have really made much of an impression on the charts. "Freak" was a relatively successful club track, peaking at #27 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart and #13 on the UK Dance chart, but official first single "Fall In Love" was a relative failure, only peaking at #71 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.  Estelle has been struggling to even come close to the success of her 2008 hit single, "American Boy," which topped the chart in her native UK and was a top 10 hit all over the world, including the U.S.  When the David Guetta-produced "Freak" was released I was actually kind of excited that Estelle might actually be branching out into a dancier direction. Follow up singles "Fall In Love" and "Break My Heart" basically quashed those dreams but have me excited in a completely different way. Excited for R&B! It's a beautiful song.  Estelle's new album All Of Me is due out this fall via V2/Atlantic Records.

Check out the Iren Brown-directed clip below, shot in LA and featuring appearances by both Rick Ross and American actor Omari Hardwick. Estelle looks stunning throughout the video. Absolutely beautiful.  Download "Break My Heart" on U.S. iTunes HERE.

Hot Video Alert: Leona Lewis & Avicci - Collide

Well, I'm glad whole Leona Lewis/Avicii hullabaloo was finally settled. Back when Leona's new single, "Collide" was first announced there was barely a mention of Swedish DJ/producer Avicii, who's track "Penguin" is used in the song. Now, in advance of the song's September 4th UK release (September 6 in the U.S.) date, the song has been turned into a collaboration between the two artists. Whatever works I guess. The song is a definite departure from the heavy, emotion-ridden balladry that the Hackney-born UK singer tends to gravitate towards, moving in a decidedly club friendly direction. I have to say, it's nice to see this different side to Lewis and it actually makes me excited for her forthcoming third album, entitled Glass Heart, released November 28th in the UK on Syco Music and December 6th in the U.S. via J Records.

Leona Lewis - Collide + The Remixes by RCA Music Group

Check out the very lovely Ethan Lader (Mariah Carey, Colbie Caillat, Dev) directed video for "Collide," which features Lewis looking stunningly beautiful per usual, but not much of anything else.  In addition to Avicii, "Collide" was co-written by Simon Jeffes, Arash Pournouri, Autumn Rowe and Sandy Vee, who also produced the track. Look out for a HOT HOT HOT remix package including mixes by Afrojack, Alex Guadino & Jason Rooney, Cahill, and Nay Ray. Check out the mixes above and check out the video below. I can finally say that I'm looking forward to new Leona Lewis music!
