Music Video / Sia / “Elastic Heart”

Sia / "Elastic Heart"

Hey everyone–happy new year! I wanted to drop in and quickly let you all know that PopBytes is currently undergoing a massive overhaul behind the scenes–the main content of the site will be shifting to something I love more than anything–music! There has been tons of music-related content over the years–however after almost twelve years of operation–music is now going to be the primary focus of PopBytes–mixed with dashes of TV, film MORE


Brooke Candy

"What's your favourite candy?" is a question I have asked the prettiest of creatures on my blog in the past, but I've never had an answer to that question myself. I'm not saying I don't have a sweet tooth, but unlike a bag of crisps or four-tiered sandwich, both of which I could happily eat on repeat until I'm fit too burst, I've never come across a candy bar or sugary blob I have been able to put away in embarrassing quantities without making MORE

Listen to Sia’s new song, “Chandelier”

Sia "Chandelier"

It's St. Patrick's Day, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate this specific day than with Aussie singer / songwriter Sia's new song, "Chandelier" (now available on iTunes). On the surface, it seems like just a really good song, but it's actually a covert criticism of party girls and how people tend to substitute alcohol and partying with self-fulfillment. HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! MORE

Dive “Into The Blue” with Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue "Into The Blue"

One of the most exciting upcoming music releases is Aussie Kylie Minogue's twelfth studio album, Kiss Me Once. It's due out on March 18th and marks Kylie's first release since she signed with Roc Nation last year. I was already quite excited for some new music from Kylie but then when I heard the album's executive producer is her fellow Aussie singer / songwriter Sia, my excitement grew tenfold! Also in the super talented producer mix is Pharrell MORE

It’s Britney Spears’ new music video for “Perfume!”

Britney Spears "Perfume"

One of my biggest problems with some of Britney Spears' newer stuff has been that, well, none of it really sounds like Britney. "Work Bitch" buried her vocals under about 5,000 layers of Will.I.Am's mediocrity, and more often than not she ends up lost in the production. But here comes "Perfume," which not only SOUNDS like Britney during her glory days, but actually updates it in a way that makes it feel like she's actually progressed as an artist MORE

Listen: Lea Michele’s “Cannonball”

Lea Michele "Cannonball"

I don't know about you guys, but I totally live for Lea Michele! I'm still obsessed with Glee (any show that features singing and dancing on a weekly basis can do no wrong) and I absolutely adore Lea and her incredible set of pipes. She's gearing up to release her debut album, LOUDER (pre-order on iTunes), next spring on Columbia Records and here's the album's lead single, "Cannonball," penned by none other than the insanely talented Sia. The MORE

Get ready for Lea Michele’s debut single, “Cannonball”

Lea Michele "Cannonball"

After years of covering some of music's greatest hits on TV's Glee, actress and singer Lea Michele is finally set to release a hit of her own. Lea revealed on Twitter that, “Cannonball,” (not to be confused with Miley Cyrus' “Wrecking Ball”) is the Sia-penned lead single of her debut album, LOUDER!. Accompanying the news was the official artwork which, as you can see, sheds all traces of Glee's Rachel Berry for a look that is considerably MORE

Listen: Britney Spears’ “Perfume” co-written with Sia!

Britney Spears "Perfume"

Britney Spears just premiered the official second single, a mid-tempo ballad entitled "Perfume" (following on the heels of "Work Bitch") off her upcoming eighth studio album, Britney Jean, due out on December 3rd via RCA Records. The song (with surprisingly strong vocals) was co-written with one of the best songwriters around, the lovely Sia and was produced by the legendary William Orbit! This coming Tuesday, November 5th, you'll be able to MORE

Britney Spears unveils her ‘Britney Jean’ album cover

Britney Spears

Happy Friday y'all! Here's a special treat to take us into the much-needed weekend ... Britney Spears unveiled the (stripped down) cover art of her upcoming eighth studio album, Britney Jean! The simplicity of it is sheer perfection, she looks incredible plus I love the neon sign used for the title, '80s styling seems to be all the rage right now. The highly-anticipated album is scheduled to drop on December 3rd and includes songs she worked on MORE

Listen: Celine Dion’s “Loved Me Back To Life”

Celine Dion "Loved Me Back To Life"

OMG! Oh happy day! The incredible Celine Dion is finally back on the music scene in such a major way, you guys must listen to her totally amazing brand-new single, "Loved Me Back To Life," which was penned by one of the hottest songwriters around, Sia. The track serves as the title cut of her upcoming album (her first English release since 2007's Taking Chances) due out on November 5th. Celine's album is now available for pre-order on iTunes but MORE

(All Eyes On) Britney Spears: Countdown to Album #8?

Britney Spears "All Eyes On Me"

It is a dark time for the Kingdom of Pop. Lady Gaga's “Applause” has all but officially flopped, Katy Perry's “Roar” remains as successful and reductive as ever, and an era of overall basic bitchiness threatens to take hold of the land. In these trying times, however, there is hope – hope that you can find on Britney Spears' official website. On Tuesday morning, the Holy Spearit herself brought to our attention a timer counting MORE

Beyoncé has a new music video / commercial!


Remember when Beyoncé used to simply make music videos? Oh, those were the good ol' days, weren't they? In the footsteps of her music video that was actually a Pepsi ad, here's Beyoncé's latest music video (directed by Jonas Åkerlund) that is actually a swimwear commercial for H&M. Seriously, the line is becoming thinner and thinner and it's freaking my sh!t out. Yet the song ("Standing On The Sun") was written by the lovely Sia and Greg MORE

Jessie Ware covers Rihanna’s “Diamonds”

Jessie Ware

Just because I'm absolutely in love with her music, here's Jessie Ware covering Rihanna's hit song "Diamonds" (written by Sia) for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. It's a more stripped down version of the original, but I think it works a little bit better because of it. MORE
