Robin Thicke explores a futuristic club vibe on the will.i.am-produced "Give It To You."
Robin Thicke doesn't strike us as a club-hopping, neon lights, up-all-night kind of dude. Nope, he seems more like an "ultrasmooth lounge/refined bourbon" type -- just listen to "Blurred Lines" if you don't believe us. But our snap judgments could never stop a talented singer like Robin from KILLING IT in all genres, which is all too clear on his new will.i.am-produced jam "Give It To You" (featuring 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar), from his forthcoming Blurred Lines album. But enough talking; let's dance!

Emblem3 gave us a thorough tour of their 'Goin' Back 2 Cali' road trip bus!
Emblem3 may have come in fourth on the second season of "The X Factor," but the brother + brother + bestie group (Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick respectively) are basically already pros at living the gig-to-gig rock star life. Now trekking cross-country on their "Goin' Back To Cali" road trip, Emblem3 aren't about to see the U.S.A. in a busted old hippie VW van (no offense, hippies)! Nope, the trio's hitting the road in a bona fide mansion on wheels! Well... sort of. At least that's how they describe it in their MTV "Cribs"-style bus tour!

Miley shows off her bum in V magazine... for art.
OK, Miley Cyrus is OFFICIALLY the Queen of teasing. Take her music for example! She's collaborated on superhot songs like "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" with Snoop Lion and "Fall Down" with will.i.am, but has she released any more deets about her new album since her radio chat with Ryan Seacrest? Nooooope. And as far as Miley's selfies go, whenever we see one puppy picture, we want, like, 15 more immediately!
Anyway, clearly Miley has transitioned her teasing technique to photo shoots, 'cause girl is dedicated to showing copious underboob and just a little bum in her latest photo spread for the May 2013 issue of V Magazine. (Side note: Only Miley could make butt crack chic.)

J. Cole airs industry-related frustrations in "Cole Summer."
There are few rappers more honest than J. Cole. Sure, he must be relieved that after several delays, his sophomore studio album, Born Sinner, finally has a release date for June 25. But being the impatient dude he is, Cole just couldn't wait another second to release some new ish, which is why we now have "Cole Summer," an introspective track about dealing with record label B.S., feeling worried about going back to his day job, and being cheap in the strip club with Drake. Well, we all can't make it rain like Drizzy!

Mika and Ariana Grande prank their high school bullies in their "Popular Song" video.
OK, we get it -- high school sucks. (That's why we have things like the Mean Stinks campaign and Demi Lovato.) And as anyone who went to high school knows, the popular kids REALLY suck. Wouldn't it be nice to invite them over for dinner, then magically turn them into stone like the witches in "Hocus Pocus"? Well, while we don't condone practicing sorcery on ANYONE, no matter how much they suck, Mika and Ariana Grande do a nice job of acting out our ultimate high school fantasy in their Tim Burton/"Heathers"-y video for "Popular Song," from Mika's latest album, The Origin Of Love.

Wiz Khalifa is looking out for No. 1 in his new "Bout Me" video featuring Problem and Iamsu.
Wiz Khalifa is basically living the life right now: He's a new father, his bride-to-be, Amber Rose, just had his face tattooed on her body, and, oh yeah, all that famous and wealthy rapper stuff. So when Wiz says that he doesn't give an EFF what haters think in his "Bout Me" video featuring Problem and Iamsu! (from the deluxe edition of O.N.I.F.C.), we actually believe him.

Snoop Lion and Miley Cyrus explore the stages of love in their "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" lyric video.
The funny thing about falling in love is that it can happen so quickly that you hardly have time to process (let alone appreciate) it. The lyric video for Snoop Lion's "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" featuring Miley Cyrus (from Snoop's recently released Reincarnated) is a perfect illustration of this: As the recently turned Rastafari's words float by, so do the good and bad times between a young, amorous couple. Love can be SO poetic.

2 Chainz throws a ski mask on for his grimy new "Like Me" video.
Ideally, weddings should be all about love, family, overeating, and maybe some tipsy dancing to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing." So we can't for the life of us figure out what is going on in 2 Chainz's new video "Like Me" (from his Grammy-nominated Based On A T.R.U. Story), featuring a lonesome bride wandering through the empty streets with a bottle of champagne in her hand. Was she stood up at the altar? Did she get cold feet? Was she mad about 2 Chainz showing up to the ceremony (IF he showed up, that is) in a Chanel ski mask? Did 2 Chainz get that Chanel mask from Justin Bieber??

Pierce The Veil take us behind the scenes of their "Bulls In The Bronx" video.
From the creepy kids in "Chemical Kids And Mechanical Brides" to doing their best Bonnie and Clyde impression in "King For A Day," San Diego hardcore outfit Pierce The Veil have topped themselves time and again with their high-concept, cinematic videos. That's why these photos from the set of their "Bulls In The Bronx" video, off their Collide With The Sky LP, have us speculating SO HARD. What could they possibly be doing? We think they may be dancing? What?! Like, not swinging arms and jump-kick dancing, but, like, choreographed dancing?
Check out more behind-the-scenes photos of Pierce The Veil's "Bulls In The Bronx" video shoot after the jump.
Mac Miller becomes a caped crusader in his new "S.D.S." video.
Is Mac Miller trading his "Most Dope Family" for "The Avengers"? Nah, that would never happen -- not when his family just got renewed for a second season on MTV2! We'd only suggest something like that because in his new video for the Flying Lotus-produced "S.D.S.," which stands for "Somebody Do Something," Mac learns that with great power comes great responsibility -- and some pretty rad perks. Like being able to fly with your adorable bulldog as your sidekick.
