It might have previously “been a bad five years” for Mary J. Blige, but the release of her new album, The London Sessions, is proving that won’t be the case this time around.
In addition to releasing her latest album, the veteran songstress dropped an emotional visual to her song, “Whole Damn Year.” The track, which has Mary speaking on repairing herself after a horrible breakup, couldn’t have received a better visual. Shot in black and white, the video follows a few different scenarios of people who have been hurt and their process of being repaired. Undoubtedly one of the best visuals Mary has shot, “Whole Damn Year” will probably be the new breakup revamp anthem for many years to come.

Antonique Smith stands up for her life and love in the brand new music video for her single “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo).” The R&B songstress storms the streets of Los Angeles in the Larenz Tate-directed visual and delivers a captivating performance of the retro-inspired song from her forthcoming debut album Love Is Everything. The video also features cameos from Lance Gross and Vine sensation King Bach.
While the song focuses on a tumultuous relationship Smith is quick to point out the universal appeal of its message. “It’s time to take the power back for all the injustices in our lives – from Mike Brown to the kidnapping of innocent Nigerian girls and all the demoralizing issues in between. This is an anthem for people worldwide that demand respect. Hold Up Wait A Minute!”
Her album, Love Is Everything, is due out early next year and boasts production from Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie), Danja (Justin Timberlake, Usher), Jukebox (Willow Smith, Eve) and the elusive icon Dr. Dre. “It’s an album that walks you through the full Love Experience.” says Smith. “Hold Up Wait A Minute”, is the Love empowerment experience, it charges you to Love one’s self, and put your foot down on your own injustices. While other songs show Love in different forms, Humility, Compromise and a bit of Tough Love too! I’ve experienced quite a few things and gained a little bit of wisdom. I’m trying to drop some jewels for both women and men as we navigate our way through Life and Love.”

Pharrell Williams extends his fashion status by starring in CHANEL’s new short film Reincarnation. Directed by the famed fashion house’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld, the eight-minute clip was created to accompany the CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art collection shown on December 2 in Salzburg, Austria.
British model Cara Delevingne plays his leading lady in the film, which tells the story of Coco Chanel, and her inspiration for CHANEL’s signature jacket. When she goes to Austria in 1954, she spots the hotel elevator hand (played by Pharrell), who becomes her muse.
In addition to his starring role, Pharrell composed and wrote the lyrics to “CC the World,” the soundtrack which accompanies Reincarnation. He and Delevingne perform the duet and show off their ballroom dance moves in the clip.
