ABC/Randy HolmesShawn Mendes was forced to cancel his show in Mexico City on September 20 after a devastating earthquake hit that country.  Now, he's partnering with the Red Cross to raise money for the victims of the quake.

Shanw has launched a campaign on CrowdRise, which is part of GoFundMe, to encourage donations for disaster relief in Mexico. He's gotten things the ball rolling with a $100,000 donation. 

On the campaign page, Shawn writes, "The scale of the devastation is hard to comprehend. While I cancelled my concert out of respect and for safety, being there during this tragedy and seeing the devastation first hand made me want to do whatever I could to help those impacted by this tragedy...I am really grateful for anything you can do."

The American Red Cross is working with the Mexican Red Cross to determine where to allocate the funds raised.

Drew Dizzy GrahamJason Derulo's new single "If I'm Lucky" is about the possibility of reuniting with a lover in the afterlife because things didn't work out in this world.  In the song's newly released video, Jason rises from the dead to find out exactly why things didn't work out between him and his lady.

The clip starts with Jason and a woman lying on the ground, dead.  Then Jason gets up, and even though he's covered with blood, he starts walking around and revisiting the circumstances that led to his and the woman's deaths.  He sees himself meeting the woman in bar.  She's obviously got a taste for danger: she forces him to stand against a dartboard while she throws knives at him.  Then, they move on to a motel for drinking and some sexy time.

Eventually, the two take up a life of crime, robbing huge amounts of cash and hiding out in the motel room.  But then, they rob the wrong guys: a group of dangerous looking biker dudes who come after them.  Jason and the girl grab the cash and escape the bikers, but when they run into a shed to hide, it explodes, killing them both.

The last shot of the video is the same as the first, with Jason and the girl are lying dead on the ground. At the last minute, he opens his eyes and they're pale and weird-looking. It's sort of how people look in Game of Thrones when they turn into White Walkers.

The video is billed as "Part 1," so presumably, we'll see what Zombie Jason gets up to in part two.

Live Nation Las Vegas Maroon 5 doesn't have a regular Las Vegas residency -- except when New Year's Eve rolls around.

Once again, the band has announced a series of New Year's shows at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Sin City.  The shows are December 30 and December 31, and tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, September 29 at 10 a.m. PST at AXS.com.

If you're an American Express Card member, an M Life Rewards member, or an AXS customer, you'll can get access to ticket pre-sales this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.

Last year, Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine told ABC Radio why the band continues to return to Las Vegas year after year for New Year's.  "It's become really fun because we bring a lot of our friends out from LA and we turn it into our own sorta party," he explained. 

Valentine goes on: "We're done performing before midnight actually strikes, so then we usually go up and celebrate in the hotel with all of our friends, it's become just a yearly thing..  Everybody's like, 'Oh, can we come back out to New Year's this year? [Can you] put us on the list?' 'Absolutely!'"

Maroon 5 is expected to release a new album in November.  Their current single, "What Lovers Do," is out now; the video, described as a "larger-than-life cinematic affair," is coming soon.

Neal PrestonA Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Stefani Germanotta -- better known as Lady Gaga -- will be in theaters sooner than you think.

Variety reports that the film, originally scheduled to open September 28, 2018, will now arrive May 18, 2018.  It seems that Warner Bros., the studio releasing the film, feels that it has a good chance of competing with 2018's slate of blockbuster summer movies, which are generally superhero films, action/adventures or animated flicks.

As previously reported, this is the fourth version of A Star Is Born: the original came out in 1937, and it was then remade in 1954 and again in 1976.  In this version, Cooper plays a country star named Jackson Maine, who discovers a talented young singer named Ally, played by Gaga.  Soon, Ally's career begins to outshine his own, which causes problems with their romance.

Gaga has written and will perform original songs in the movie.  In the new Netflix documentary about the singer, Five Foot Two, you can actually see her discussing the fact that the studio has just given the project the green light.  The documentary is streaming now.

ABC/Ida Mae AstuteIf you're a bit tired of hearing "Shape of You" all the time, imagine how Ed Sheeran must feel. It's no wonder he's ready to move on to a new single from his hit album, ÷ (Divide).

Ed's new single, the third to be released from the album, is "Perfect," which was inspired by his longtime girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn.  In an interview, he said that he approached the track thinking, "I need to write the best love song of my career."

There's a lyric video to go with the song that you can watch on YouTube now. Ed will give the track its national U.S. TV debut on Monday on ABC's Good Morning America.

Of course, "Shape of You" isn't going away any time soon.  It's just officially become the most-streamed track of all time on Spotify, with 1.318 billion streams.

Ed's currently on a North American tour in support of Divide, and will play three nights at Brooklyn's Barclays Center next week.

RCA RecordsWALK THE MOON is back with a new single and " target="_blank">a new video, "One Foot."

The clip finds Nicholas Petricca and the guys performing at California's Joshua Tree National Park, during the recent total eclipse of the sun, with special camera lenses similar to the ones in the glasses we all wore to watch the eclipse.  The band performs in the desert in front of a number of mirrors, and Nick is also seen singing alone on a cliff top with the sun in the background.  A woman is also seen wandering around the cliffs, and at the end, she and Nick embrace.

In the upbeat song, Nick sings, "Cross my heart and hope to die/taking this one step at a time/Got your back if you got mine/one foot in front of the other."

In a statement, Nick says of "One Foot," "We've never felt more true to ourselves than we do right now, releasing this song and this upcoming record.  ‘One Foot’ is the soundtrack of our journey this past year, moving forward even when the path is uncertain."

So far, there's no title or release date for WALK THE MOON's new album. It's the follow up to Talking Is Hard, the album that featured their breakthrough smash, "Shut Up and Dance."

fotopress/RedfernsDaddy Yankee is asking you to lend a hand in helping his homeland recover from the destruction done by Hurricane Maria.

The “Despacito” hitmaker, born Ramon Rodriguez in San Juan, Puerto Rico, tweeted ahead of his scheduled Chicago concert tonight: “Bring bottles of water, repellent, diapers, first aid kids, flash lights. Drop off at my concert tonight.” 

Yankee tweeted a similar plea Thursday before his concert at New York’s Coney Island.  Early this morning, he posted a video to his Twitter of the donations being loaded into a semi-truck, with thank-yous from him and others lending a hand.

#NYC thank you! We don't stop . Let's rebuild #PuertoRico ! 🙏🏻 to the local heroes! And the community ! #Chicago we need you tonight! pic.twitter.com/U5yQ5rI2TE

— Daddy Yankee (@daddy_yankee) September 22, 2017

Daddy Yankee’s also scheduled to play the Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Nantucket, CT, Saturday night – no doubt he’ll be accepting donations there as well.

Hurricane Maria was a category four, with maximum sustained winds of 155 MPH, when it made landfall on Puerto Rico Wednesday, the strongest hurricane to strike there in 89 years.  The storm devastated the island, destroying the power grid, communications infrastructure, and untold homes and businesses.  Although the storm’s total destruction isn’t yet known, it’s estimated Puerto Rico’s people could be without power for months.

If you're not near a city where Daddy Yankee's playing, you can help by donating to UNICEF, the Red Cross, Americares and and other agencies.

Bendo LLCMacklemore releases Gemini, his first solo studio album in 12 years, on Friday.  The Grammy-winning rapper is the married father of a two-year-old daughter, Sloane, and he says being a parent has really changed the way that he makes music these days.

"My time in the studio is more precious ‘cause I’m away from her," he tells ABC Radio. "So when I’m in the studio I’m really trying to work – not to rush anything – but I know that my goal is inevitably to get back to her."

The rapper says Sloane also has made him rethink his priorities.  He no longer considers his music career as the be-all and end-all of everything, for example.

"This is all so small. This industry, the art...is so impermanent," he explains.  According to Macklemore, being a parent made him realize that "it really comes down to family and what we’re leaving the next generation, and that now I have a direct representation of what that next generation is."

Gemini has already produced the hit single "Glorious," a collaboration with Skylar Grey. Macklemore just released a new single and video, "Good Old Days," a collaboration with Kesha.  The album also features Lil Yachty and Offset of the rap trio Migos.  One person who's not on the album -- Macklemore's longtime musical partner Ryan Lewis.  He says that changed the dynamic a bit.

"I think there was more pressure put on me, because Ryan and I would do everything together so we would kind of delegate between each other, and Ryan’s so great at so many different things," he tells ABC Radio. "So this was more...like, 'OK, well if I wanna get this done, this is 100 percent on me.'"

Dutchess Music/BMGFergie can do romantic ballads like "Big Girls Don't Cry," but she can also rap -- and she shows off those skills in her new video for "Like It Ain't Nuttin."

The clip, which seems to have been filmed in London, features Fergie rocking a number of looks: a blonde touseled 'do and minimal makeup; black leather and studs and a severe black bob; and dyed red hair and super-thin eyebrows.  She dances in a garage in front of a luxury car, rocks the stage in a club, and walks around backstage partying.

"I get money all day like it ain't nuttin'/spend that money baby like it ain't nuttin'/all day all day like it ain't nuttin'/roll up in the Ghost baby like it ain't nuttin'/not a damn thing," Fergie raps, as she describes buying expensive cars, making "10 or 20 million," "swimming in loot," and "buying up the whole damn bar." 

At the end, the blonde Fergie, who's performing onstage, literally drops the mic.

"It Ain't Nuttin'" is from Fergie's long-awaited new album, Double Dutchess, which arrives Friday.  She's also releasing a "visual" album called  Double Dutchess: Seeing Double.

John Shearer/Getty Images via ABCMiley Cyrus has released a fourth track from her upcoming album, Younger Now, due September 29.

The retro-sounding track is called "Week Without You."  Miley wonders what it would be like if her boyfriend, who's been breaking her heart and making her cry, went away and left her to her own devices.  Short answer: she'd be much happier.

She sings, "I know that I gave you my heart/but you stomped it to the ground/That's what got me wondering what it's like/To not have you around."

"Week Without You" will be available as an instant download when you pre-order Younger Now, along with previously released songs "Malibu," "Inspired" and the title track.

Referring how different her new music sounds compared to her last few albums, Miley says in a statement, "People have been asking me, ‘Is this like a re-introduction of yourself?’ But it’s not that at all. Actually, it’s more like, I am this person who embraces all my past selves. This album is the most me for right now that I can be.”

Capitol RecordsNiall Horan is out with the video for his new single, "Too Much to Ask."  It's from his upcoming debut solo album, Flicker.

The song is about Niall hoping that his love will come back to him, as he sings "That's all I'm asking/Is it too much to ask?" The moody video shows him sitting alone in his bedroom, wandering around London looking glum, hanging out in a pub, standing on a rooftop, and riding on the subway and getting upset when he sees a happy couple canoodling in the same train car.  Niall and his band are also seen performing the song in a living room.

"Too Much to Ask," one of the first song Niall wrote for Flicker, was produced by hitmaker Greg Kurstin, who's worked with Adele, Sia, Pink and Kelly Clarkson.  He also produced Niall's first solo track, "This Town."

Flicker is due October 10.  Tickets for the North American leg of Niall's Flicker World Tour 2018 go sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

Getty Images via ABCFifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui came out as bisexual last November, and even though she says people advised her not to talk about it, she refused to listen to them.

Speaking to Out magazine, Lauren says executives at the group's record label told her she shouldn't be so open about her personal life.  "A lot of artists are held back by the notion that they’ll lose their fan base or alienate themselves,” she says. “Even friends and family would tell me to keep it to myself. But the more I thought about it, the more I was like, Why?

“There’s this notion that artists are supposed to be dumb and frivolous,” Lauren adds. “I completely disagree with that. Madonna, Bob Marley, John Lennon -- they didn’t talk about bull***t.”   

In fact, Lauren says she's kind of upset that she even used the world "bisexual," because it's too limited.

"Even the fact that I labeled myself makes me mad sometimes, because dude, I’m just a free spirit,” she explains. "People still talk s**t, but it’s like, 'Why does it make you feel gross?' You can watch a kid get bombed and not do anything about it, but you can’t watch me kiss my girlfriend? Go f*** yourself.'”

Greg WilliamsIf you’ve been to a wedding within the past couple of years, you probably have an idea of some of the most popular tunes that are being used by brides and grooms these days....but if you do some "thinking," you'll be able to guess what the most popular one is.

According to the Washington Post, Spotify has revealed the most popular wedding songs in America based on their user-made wedding playlists. Number one on the list is “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran, followed by “Marry You” by Bruno Mars.

Rounding out the top five is John Legend’s love ballad “All of Me,” along with the guaranteed floor-fillers “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” by Whitney Houston.

Other crowd-pleasers on the list include “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey, “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce featuring Jay-Z, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, and, suprisingly, “Hey Ya!” by Outkast.
