Best news all day - Missy Elliott surprised the world today with a new video (her first in 7 years) for her new single, "WTF (Where They From) ft. Pharrell Williams." Brilliant, futuristic (yet classic), amazing, and infectious - if the video 'was being described by Stefon on Saturday Night Live it might go something like this: 'This video has everything. Missy rapping. Les Twins, who have been rocking Beyoncé’s latest tours. Missy with disco ball lips. Lens flares. A Pharrell marionette…" - Wired
A title and release date for Missy's next record is still forthcoming but Timbaland says, "It's something you ain't never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future."

New York City's Sizzy Rocket is excited to release the new single "Bad Kids", a collaboration with Scissor Sisters' Scott Hoffman (aka Babydaddy), from her forthcoming debut album Thrills, out next Spring on Yebo Music.
Listen to "Bad Kids" below!
"'Bad Kids' is my New York. It's a Sid Vicious-level angsty punk anthem with a pink pop song bow on top," explains Sizzy. "I wrote it with Scott Hoffman of the Scissor Sisters and he's really good at bringing out that Electro Clash, vibrant energy in my music. I'm so comfortable around him in the studio I can talk about hickeys and sex in the backseats of cars, messy teenager shit. 'Bad Kids' is about feeling that demon inside of you, that urge to fuck shit up, and knowing you're not alone because I feel it too."
After 75 million sales; four Grammy Awards; six World Music Awards; an Ivor Novello, an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe nomination; and seven studio albums (plus the 'Paint The Sky With Stars' compilation) which have hit the upper echelons of charts all over the world, Enya will embark upon a new chapter in her spectacular career with the November 20th release of her new album Dark Sky Island.
The Enya creative triumvirate - Enya, producer and sound engineer Nicky Ryan, and lyricist Roma Ryan - started work on the album in the spring of 2012. Inspired by Roma's work on a series of poetry books themed around islands and specifically the island of Sark's decision to be designated as a dark sky island, the album's title track was the first song to be written for the collection.
The album's buoyantly optimistic first single "Echoes in Rain" possesses an irresistible surge of globe-trotting euphoria which made it an obvious choice as the album's lead track. While it shares the adventurous themes of Enya's breakthrough hit "Orinoco Flow," its rhythmic march instead celebrates the anticipation of a journey's end.
This week Enya also released a music video for "So I could Find My Way," the second track from Dark Sky Island. Check it out here.
Dark Sky Island is available to pre-order on CD physically and digitally, with "Echoes in Rain" provided as an instant grat track for fans.
Prince William and Kate Middleton announced plans to tackle cyber-bullying this week; now, a queen is joining the fight. RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Kelly Mantle’s new music video for “Keyboard Courage” is an anthem for anyone who has been harassed or stalked online. “I’ve been called every name in the book,” she reveals. “One person tweeted ‘Kelly Mantle is so ugly. She looks like a burn victim going through chemo.’ Luckily, Kelly’s strong sense of humor allows her to brush off many of the personal attacks, but she wrote the song after meeting young fans being victimized online by kids in their schools. “Not everyone can laugh it off. It’s a scary thought that someone’s heartless, mindless words could drive another person to take their life.”
“My hope is that Keyboard Courage can be that song kids listen to and be reminded to not get discouraged by online bullies,” continues Kelly Mantle from her Hollywood home. Produced by Steven Phillips, who also produced Mantle’s last album Satellite Baby, “Keyboard Courage” is a high energy, 80’s inspired pop track. It’s fun but with a powerful message. The lyrics include actual negative comments that Kelly Mantle has received.
This is the first single from her upcoming EP, Duality. The single released just this morning, November 9th, and is available on iTunes now! Watch below.
