Her sexy vocals are a serious means of seduction

A few weeks ago, Kailee Morgue headed up NYLON's Soundcheck. Now, she's premiering the video to her track "Siren" exclusively with NYLON.

Morgue is a relative newcomer to the music scene, first popping on our radars when she created a video for her song "Medusa" in her own bedroom, garnering 100,000 likes in a single night. "Siren" is essentially the follow-up in which Morgue gets to play the villain. "The Greek mythology references pick up where my first single 'Medusa' left off," she explains. "But this one has a much more sinister tone. The balance between lofty vocal and the sexy, unsettling instrumental mirrors the temptation to do something forbidden or ill-advised."

The visuals, from start to finish, were all Morgue's doing. She says, "The video I shot for 'Siren' is the first music video that I completely thought up the concept for and directed myself. I modernized the story of the siren, but still wanted to keep the underwater feel." The girl knows exactly what she wants, and made sure she got it (and the results are incredible). "While the video as a whole is dark and sexy," Morgue adds, "I also wanted to include scenes where the colors are lighter to give you a sense of innocence and sympathy for this siren."

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
