We love this hot new video shot in our home away from home Cannes, France.
A few short hours after Kayne West revealed that he wouldn't be attending the MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper drops track "Clique," his new single with Jay-Z and Big Sean.
The song which was teased in a leaked snippet is off Cruel Summer, the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation. It's produced by Hit-Boy, so it's no surprise that the drums have indeed showed up in full force.

Its all about music fesitvals on Labor Day Weekend in America. Electric Zoo in New York City, Burning Man in the Nevada Desert and Jay Z Made in America festival in Philladelphia.
The festival took place on the foot of the Philadelphia Art Museum were the Rocky movie was filmed. The Budweiser Company and Jay-Z supported the festival, in conjunction with the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
The festival kicked off Saturday with a lineup performance from a range of genres of music, including: Miike Snow, Passion Pit, and Calvin Harris. Jay-Z himself also performe, with his own cast of guests which included Kanye West along with President Obama, who addressed the crowd through a video. Sunday featured more great performances from stars Drake, Pearl Jam, and Santigold. See the full rundown here:
Tradionally, concerts and festivals held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway have been free, sometimes attracting over 1.5 million people. But, this concert required a ticket, and therefore may have attracted closer to only 50,000 people. Portions of the ticket prices, along with the concession profits, are going to United Way.
As an bonus, director Ron Howard will be at the festival filming the event for release in 2013.
That President Obama addressed the crowd is a testament to the rising star-power of Jay-Z and wife Beyonce, who have developed a rising profile in national politics this year. The music pair has developed a close friendship with Barack and Michelle Obama since 2008.
Below is a recap of the top videos, performances, and photos from Made in America:

Alexander Wang has chosen Azealia Banks as his latest campaign girl for his new T Fall 2012 ads.
Debuted exclusively on Style.com, Banks' T by Alexander Wang video is shot in (mostly) black and white with split screens, close-ups and lots of hair whipping back and forth. Banks raps "Van Vogue” from "1991," her recently released EP, and swishes around in what are surely soft-as-butter tees and tanks made by Wang.
Wang has previously used alternative hip hop stars for his T campaigns (Santigold, Die Antwoord, etc).
Azealia Banks is making a name in fashion with a spot in Elle's Women in Music issue, a Met Gala invite and a private concert at Karl Lagrefeld's home.

We all know Azaleas are flowers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azalea But Ive never heard the name Azalea before. Now it happens to be the name of not one but two female rappers that are trending. They're both 21 years old and both are star sign Gemini. That's about where the comparison ends.
The hottest is probably Azealia Banks. NYC born and bred she recently performed at this year's Met Costume Institute Gala. It doesn't get hotter than that The Met Gala
Tijon has built a big art movement in NYC under The GT World brand. This Guyanese-American from Richmond Hill Queens, now living in Jersey, is spreading that real lyrical, feel good music again. Check out his latest song Lost in the Stars.
Jay-Z and Kanye West performed to a sold-out crowd at Paris's Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy on Friday night with Beyoncé and girlfriends Kelly Rowland and Gwyneth Paltrow singing along from their VIP seats. The ladies were on hand for a historic night when Kanye and Jay-Z performed their hit "N----- in Paris" a record 11 times. Yesterday the partying continued for Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who kicked back and sipped drinks with Adrien Brody at L'Arc nightclub.
Today Jay-Z was spotted arriving at Le Bourget airport on his way to an evening show in Antwerp. The guys move on to gigs in Germany and Ireland later in upcoming days, then are back in England next week for the final leg of their European tour.
