Hilary Duff Chasing Her Dreams At Single Release Party

Hilary Duff Chasing Her Dreams At Single Release Party

Hilary Duff’s remained M.I.A. from the music scene for seven years, but she’s back and it’s safe to say: better then ever.

Hilary stopped by Marquee nightclub in NYC to celebrate the release of her new single, “Chasing The Sun,” which received a remix treatment by Dave Aude.

“It’s a really carefree, summer song and I guess I didn’t really know what people were expecting from me,” Hilary told PopJustice about her new single. “This song is definitely a top-down, carefree, super catchy singalong song and so I guess we thought that would be a good move.”

As for not writing on the song? Hilary says there’s some great artists out there that can manage that better than she can.

“I’m not a snob, like ‘I have to write everything’. There are so many amazing writers out there and one of the best things about this record for me was that I did get to write as much as I wanted and work with other people as much as I wanted. Some of the best work comes from when you’re collaborating with people and then sometimes a song comes along and you hear it and you’re like ‘okay, I think that’s a smash, don’t give it away!’.There has to be a balance. Some of the biggest pop acts out there love to write, but a lot of their singles aren’t things they’ve written.”

Check out a video of Hilary celebrating at Marquee Thursday night to her new tune:

Sia Sings Britney’s “Perfume”

Sia Sings Britney's "Perfume"

Sia gave an interview to ABC’s Nightline this week, sort of. She faced away from the camera the entire time in an effort to remain anonymous. They discuss her lengthy body of work, including DJ Guetta, Rihanna and Britney Spears.

During the segment, Sia sang Britney’s “Perfume,” the first time it’s been sung live since ever, and it’s magical. In fact, she wasn’t sure she even remembered the words, noting they make a song in 40 minutes and send it off and never hear about it again.

“I just lift these concepts off like crap television,” Sia says. “And then it’s like so fun, and I apply them to music… There’s a story. It makes us feel good, or it makes us feel sad.”

Nick Jonas Premieres New Single “Chains”

Nick Jonas Premieres New Single "Chains"

Nick Jonas is singing about his kinky fetish for chains and bondage in his new single out today. Not really, but the first hit off his upcoming solo studio album, “Chains,” does give swooning fan girls an insight into the mind of the very private Jonas Brother.

You listening Tiffany Houghton?

“I found my way to connect to the song,” Nick tells E! News. “I found it was really true and real. For me, it embodies that feeling of being trapped in a love that is kind of doomed.”

Jason Evigan-produced track (also crafted Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” and Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack”) is Nick’s most adult song yet.

“Everyone has their own chains, in life and in love, that bind them and this song embodies that feeling,” he said to Complex. “I’m excited to be back to share this song with the world.”

BreatheHeavy Livin For Preston Pohl

Preston Pohl recently jumpstarted his music career as a contestant on The Voice. The only judge that didn’t turn their chair around was Christina “Xtina” Aguilera. I know. Preston, who chose Adam Levine as his mentor, says of the experience:

“In the very beginning the process is pretty crazy,” Preston tells during our chit chat. “There are hundreds of people. When you walk around you think ‘man, I don’t have a shot at this.’ Everyone is a great singer.”

There to calm his nerves were his parents, who never heard their son sing until they found themselves sitting in the audience at NBC’s hit show.

“To have them there and see me sing and do my thing and those chairs turn around, it was just a highlight of the whole time that I had on the show. Nothing tops that feeling or that excitement.”

Watch his cool cover of “Electric Feel:”

One thing Preston regrets about the show is not showcasing who he is as a singer. He was labeled a soul singer, which is “completely not” him.

“Once you’re on television, America kind of feels ownership over you and places something on top of you… I’m not a soul singer.”

“Once you’ve been labeled something it’s kind of hard to shake it… I’m more of a pop guy.”
