Will Fans Swipe Right For Hilary Duff’s New Tinder-less Video?

Ask Hilary Duff for an alternate version of her music video and you shall receive!
After a split from her husband of five years, rumors swirled that Hilary Duff took to Tinder to get back into the dating game. After she admitted to giving the popular app a chance, viewers were even more surprised to see her two dates chronicled in her new music video for the single “Sparks.” Although the first version has nearly ten million views, fans begged the “Younger” star through social media to put out different version without the scenes documenting her dates and radio interviews. If you haven’t seen the original yet, check it out here!
Many voiced concerns that between clips of Duff’s fun, neon-filled choreography, the Tinder scenes took away from the video so that it felt more like a documentary.
Nearly two weeks after the video’s debut, Duff assured fans that she has been listening to their concerns and released the “fan demanded” version on Thursday:


So without further ado, check out the new alternate version here to see if it sparks your interest!

“Sparks” will be featured on Hilary Duff’s fifth studio album, “Breath In. Breath Out.,” which goes on sale June 16! Until then, be sure to check out Hilary as “Kelsey” in TV Land’s new series “Younger!”

Fave Cover Friday: Fallingforyou

This fave cover friday will be a little different than usual. I typically write about rap or r&b, so I’m hooking y’all up with something a bit different. This FCF is a cover of the song “Fallingforyou” by The 1975, performed by Jae Stephens.

I usually choose a song or artist I already know and find a cover based off of that. This time around, I was on Jae Stephens’ Soundcloud and was truly amazed by all of the covers she had. I chose this particular one because it was one of my favorites, but there are also a lot of great covers on her page. This artist’s style truly embodies what I love about covers- she changes it up completely and makes a familiar song her own.

For this The 1975 cover, I actually hadn’t really listened to the band before so it was pretty new to me.

Listen to Stephens’ cover of “Fallingforyou” here

I checked out the original after and I loved that one too. You can listen to it here

If you’re interested in what you heard, I recommend checking out Stephens’ Soundcloud. There are some really creative, nice-sounding tunes and even some originals.
