Jessica Mauboy Teases Babyface-Produced Bop “Can I Get A Moment?”: Preview The Fierce Anthem

Jessica Mauboy is bringing out the big guns for her fourth studio album. The Australian diva, who has already racked up 12 top 20 hits in her homeland, worked with Babyface on new single “Can I Get A Moment?” and it sounds like an on-trend, percussion-heavy club-banger — at least if the snippet that arrived online today (October 1) is any indication.

“Too hot to touch, I’m burnin’ up,” purrs the 25-year-old over chunky beats and hand claps before laying down the law. It sounds like a winning mix of B’Day-era Beyonce and Jessie J‘s “Bang Bang” — particularly in the fierce chorus. “No disrespect, I’m not impressed, right now I’m doing me,” sings Jess. “You do the most, you’re way too close, it’s hard for me to breathe! Can I get a moment?” Listen to a snippet after the jump.

Does Jessica have an international hit on her hands? Have your say in the comments below.

Taylor Swift Is Pretty In Pastel Pink On The Cover Of ‘British Vogue’, Says She’s Given Up Dating

Taylor Swift considers herself something of a fashionista, so probably got a kick out being British Vogue‘s new cover girl. The former country queen is almost unrecognizable in the pastel-themed shoot, which finds her rocking slicked-back hair and a knitted tank top. Apart from rocking granny fashions, the 24-year-old also opened up about her new LP 1989 and dating life.

“This time around I’ve chosen the brave and bold way of going about things,” she says of her new pop opus. “I don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, I don’t want to betray Nashville… but essentially it comes down to challenging yourself as an artist.” Taylor also talked about dating and the gents of Hollywood will no doubt breathe a collective sigh of relief when they hear that she’s retired. “Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is.” See the “Shake It Off” hitmaker’s British Vogue cover and pictorial after the jump.

Nike Blazer Mid Premium Vintage “Safari” Collection

Nike presents three new looks that draw inspiration from the wild with the forthcoming Blazer Mid Premium Vintage ”Safari” collection. Each pair features a vulcanized sole and draws elements from the safari to create a distinctive, themed aesthetic. One pair represents a leopard, blending a full-grain black leather upper with a leopard print, pony-hair Swoosh, heel tab, and tongue. Another, inspired by the snake, features a mahogany, nubuck upper and snake-inspired accents on the Swoosh and heel. The last (pictured first in the gallery) pair ties the collection together, illustrating the entangled environment of the jungle itself. Covered in a camouflage underlay, it features green TPU overlays, meant to resemble vines. The new Blazer “Safari” collection will be available online and at select Nike Sportswear retailers beginning October 11.
