Recording artists becoming movie stars is nothing new. But it is crazy amazing for a successful pop artist to become a critically acclaimed actor. From Cher, Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand and Jennifer Hudson taking home Oscars to Lady GagaQueen LatifahMary J Blige, Bette Midler, Diana Ross, Mark Wahlberg and Will Smith having Oscar nominations for their acting chops, the double threat is real. Hell, there’s been great performances from recording artists on screen from the likes of Justin TimberlakePrinceMariah CareyElvis PresleyIce CubeHarry Styles, Lenny Kravitz, Beyonce, Eminem, Rihanna and many more. This year Pop stars are once again taking on the immense challenge of the big screen. Ed Sheeran’s playing himself (ok, not as great of a challenge as some roles…but still) in the Beatles inspired rom-com, “Yesterday”. Jennifer LopezCardi B and Lizzoare in the modern Robin Hood/stripper (yes I just put those words together) story, “Hustlers” out this September. And the much anticipated movie musical “Cats”, set to drop in December, will star Jennifer HudsonJason Derulo and the “could she be cast more perfectly”, Taylor Swift

This weekend I’m taking on the best party music challenge with exclusive HK remixes of some of these recording artists turned movie stars. Get ready to turn up the volume on remixes of hit tracks from Ed SheeranLizzo and Taylor Swift.
