Ricky Martin shows us that he hasn’t lost it in his new music video for his new single “Adios.” The men still have him going “loco loco” in his Latin-flavored song. The video, directed by Ethan Ladder, takes place in the Harvelle’s speakeasy in Long Beach, CA. Playing a sexy policeman, bartender, bouncer, mobster, and, of course, singer, Martin makes it hard for us to say adios to his sex appeal.

An English band from Torbay, The Simmertones, has been given a blessing from the one-and-only Doris Day to use her vocals in their latest single “Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps.” The single from the ska band is created as though the lead singer, Glyn Wilcox, and Doris Day were actually performing the song together. The band actually approached Day, who is famous for her prolific film career, including hits like The Pajama GameRomance on the High Seas, and Pillow Talk, and requested her permission to use a sampling from the song. Doris quickly gave permission along with Sony Music, and the single has received praise from Day fans, as well as listeners throughout the world who have been downloading the hit.

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Cheek To Cheek is available for pre-order now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of two legends belting out a little cabaret-style fun beforehand. The second track to be released from the album, the jazz standard “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” has a new video out today. If this doesn’t scream Cocktail Music, we’re not sure what does!

Adore Delano has become a gay household name after landing in the top three of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but before making it to the top three as a drag queen, Adore was famous for her singing as Danny Noriega on American Idol. Adore’s latest song, “Hello, I Love You” from her debut album Till Death Do Us Party, seems like it could have been pulled straight from the sugary pop confections of a multitude of Top 40 singers.
