Why Zedd Chose Maren Morris for His New Song: 'If You Sing & I Want to Cry, I Know It's Perfect'

Why Zedd Chose Maren Morris for His New Song: 'If You Sing & I Want to Cry, I Know It's Perfect'
Maren Morris is a little bit country and a little bit Edm. But when it comes to her new single with Zedd and electronic brother duo Grey, it’s as “natural” as can be.

People caught up with Zedd behind-the-scenes during the music video shoot for their new single “The Middle” — which Target debuted in a commercial during the 60th Grammy Awards on Sunday — and he revealed it wasn’t exactly third times the charm when they chose “the one” for the vocals behind their new track.

“ went through roughly 15 different vocalists – mostly pop and lots of A-listers – but it just didn’t fit,

Why Isn’t 2018 Album of the Year Nominee Lorde Performing at the Grammys?

Why Isn’t 2018 Album of the Year Nominee Lorde Performing at the Grammys?
For a Grammy nominee who isn’t performing at the Grammys, Lorde is certainly owning Grammy Week.

On Wednesday night she performed with Jack Antonoff at his fourth annual Ally Coalition benefit at New York’s Town Hall, where they played four songs: a sublime cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me,” an amusing one of Roy Orbison’s “You Got It,” and two from her 2017 sophomore set “Melodrama,” which happens to be nominated for the big prize, Grammy Album of the Year. (Antonoff also shouted down a heckler who criticized Lorde’s decision to cancel a concert in Israel over the country’s policies toward Palestinians, but that’s a different story.) And on Friday night she absolutely slayed “Silver Springs” — a Stevie Nicks song that, incredibly, was left off of “Rumors” due to space considerations — at the MusiCares tribute to Fleetwood Mac, bringing an intense physicality to the verses that contrasts with but

‘Tully’ Review: Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman Deliver a Modern Fairy Tale About Motherhood — Sundance 2018

‘Tully’ Review: Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman Deliver a Modern Fairy Tale About Motherhood — Sundance 2018
A very different kind of adult fairy tale (one that frequently doubles as a feature-length advertisement for tubal ligation), “Tully” is a fantasy of the highest order; it might look like an episode of “This Is Us,” but this story is every bit as magical as “The Shape of Water.” Think of it as Diablo Cody’s modern take on “Mary Poppins”: What it lacks in songs, it more than makes up for in sex scenes and Carly Rae Jepsen sing-alongs. Funnier than “Juno” and almost as ruthlessly honest as “Young Adult,” Cody’s third collaboration with director Jason Reitman is a razor-sharp movie about the trials of motherhood, and the clear and present danger of losing yourself once you start living for someone else.

Songs for Screens: The Best Ad Synchs of 2017, Featuring Peggy Lee, Sia, Cher, Lil Yachty and More

“Songs for Screens” (formerly known as “Synch This”) is a Variety column written by Andrew Hampp, a VP at New York-based music sponsorship and experiential agency Mac Presents and former branding correspondent for Billboard. Each week, the column will highlight noteworthy use of music in advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as new and catalog songs that we deem ripe for synch use.

With a record $314 million currently spent on synchs globally, there was no shortage of commercials with great music in 2017. But the difference between a good synch and a great synch is a song that sticks with you long after the commercial has aired. And one that might even prompt you to take some sort of action, be it a Shazam tag, a Spotify stream, or even the purchase of a concert ticket.

These 10 synchs represent some of the most unique — and successful — integrations of music the ad world had to offer this year. From

19 Music Video Cameos You Totally Need to See Again
Liam Payne‘s most recent music video for his single, “Bedroom Floor,” is one to remember – and not just because of its catchy beat; the song’s video features Bella Thorne, who portrays a girl dealing with a flaky boyfriend.

Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" Viewed 1 Billion Times on YouTube

Carly Rae Jepsen's
"Call Me Maybe" is the little pop song that could. Released on March 1, 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen's infectious debut became a worldwide smash. Buoyed by a viral lip dub video starring Justin Bieber, Big Time Rush, Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, it hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, where it remained for nine consecutive weeks. And on Sunday, "Call Me Maybe" surpassed the 1 billion views mark on YouTube. The video averages about 250,000 views per day, and at its peak, it got over 1.9 million views in one day. "Call Me Maybe" was the lead single from Jepsen's 2012 album Kiss, which spawned three less popular hits: "Good Time (feat. Owl City)," "This Kiss"...
