A Medley of Spears
Last week we got our first look at the newly released music video for Jamie Lynn Spears‘s new Country single How Could I Want More. Today, JL treats us all with a live performance of another of her new Country songs. Jamie Lynn has embarked on a short, intimate run of live concert performances to promote the upcoming release of her debut album and last night she performed the song Ms. Mississippi for a lucky group of fans. Midway thru the song, JL busted out a rendition of big sister Britney Spears‘s massive hit song Oops!… I Did It Again. She even managed to work in the hand-to-heart-pump dance move as she performed. And you MUST watch to the very end … JL gives our dear Britney a very sweet shoutout. Check out the video embedded above to watch the performance in full … or FFWD to the 2:05 mark for the start of JL‘s cover of Oops! I am in LOVE with this performance, are you?

"I don't need another gift, I just have one wish this year ..."
Last month we got to hear Ariana Grande‘s cover of the Wham! Xmas classic Last Christmas and today we get to hear another track off her upcoming Xmas album/EP. This time around, Ariana is singing about what she wants for Xmas this year … and instead of gifts or chocolates, she just wants to have Snow In California. Now, as a person who grew up with snowy winters for most of my life, I can assure you … it’s best to be careful what you wish for. But, this is what Ariana wants so … let it snow, I suppose.

Make It Stop, Please
Remember back in August of 2012 when we first learned that Drake was planning to release a new album of previously unheard and unfinished Aaliyah music and then we learned that her family wasn’t happy about the idea, then there were a LOT of crazy rumors and reports going around that ultimately meant the project would never be released. Back in January, an unreleased song called Quit Hatin’ leaked online then … nothing. Well, today we get to hear bits of another unreleased Aaliyah song by way of Drake who posted a video on his official Instagram profile which teases the song. Click below and have a listen. More »
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Sigh. Okay. Where to begin, where to begin…? If you’ve ever been retweeted or tweeted at by one of your favorite celebrities, then you know how I’m feeling right now. Friggen. Solange. Friggen. Knowles. Friggen. Just. Friggen. TWEETED. ME!!! Not a retweet my friends. But, like, took time out of her day to type the words “Thank You!!” Please note the two exclamation points; that is how effing excited she was to read my tweet/mini-review of her new compilation album Saint Heron. Folks, Solange is OBSESSED with me and IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL OR ANYTHING. But seriously, y’all need to get up on Saint Heron and I’m here to help. Click inside for more!
Tell NO ONE
If you guys tell anyone about what I’m getting ready to confess, I swear… I will never talk to any of you again. Ever. In this life. Got it? Good. Okay. Here’s the thing. I woke up this morning and went to Complex and saw that there was a new Justin Timberlake song. The song started playing and I immediately realized 1.) that it was not Justin Timberlake and 2.) that I cannot read in the morning. It was Justin Bieber, dropping a new song for #MusicMondays and I have to admit… I really like Change Me. I mean, I don’t love the idea of a bunch of girls running around thinking they can change Justin Bieber (or other young dudes taking faux gangsta Instagram selfies), but I am digging the track. What is that? Where am I? And why am I currently on my
third fifth listen? Whatever. Don’t make fun of me. It’s a nice song, LMAO. Oh man…
Miley's Dream Has Come To Fruition
Back in July 2013 Miley Cyrus went on the record and said that, deep inside, she is really Lil’ Kim. Now, as a huge fan of the Queen Bee I can certainly understand why Miley would want to be her, but I’m unwilling to make that direct correlation. However, I was totally in love with Miley’s Hallowe’en costume this year; she nailed Lil’ Kim at the 1999 MTV VMA‘s. Kim was a big fan of the look too, sharing the photo of Miley with her Instagram followers. And now THIS. The gods of musical collaborations have answered Miley‘s prayers and she will be featured on Kim‘s upcoming album, Hardcore 2K13. Click inside for more!
Okay, JT Wins At Remixes
Oh man, Justin Timberlake is sooo tryin’ to get me to obsess over him right now. He lit’rally went and grabbed pretty much all of my favorite rappers for the remix to the TKO: J. Cole, A$AP Rocky, and Pusha T. Oh, and by “favorite rappers” I mean “rappers I’m totally making babies with in a parallel universe right now or whatever.” This song was already all kinds of dope, now it’s on a whole ‘nother level. Click inside for your first listen! And shouts-out to PITNBr nicole for tweeting me the link!
But are the lyrics homophobic?
His purple funkness Prince has released a new single titled Da Bourgeoisie and as you can hear in the video embedded above, homeboy is smartin’ something fierce over getting dumped by his lady … for another lady. As you might expect, the song is a funky jam that tells a love story as only Prince can but a closer look at the lyrics suggests that the way he is delivering the story may be homophobic. No one likes to get dumped by a lover but it seems especially insulting to some people if they get dumped by a lover for someone else of the same sex (ie. a guy gets dumped by a girl for a girl, a girl gets dumped by a guy for a guy). Clearly, according to the lyrics of this song, Prince is one of those people. But is he really being anti-gay with this song? Check out the lyrics of Da Bourgeoisie below and let’s discuss. More »

Her Debut Single
In June of 2012 we saw video of Britney Spears‘s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears performing a new song that she had recorded now that she is living in Nashville, TN. At the time, we heard that Jamie Lynn was testing out her new music at tiny shows around Nashville as she worked on putting together a full album of songs. Last night, seemingly out of the blue, JL released a new single titled How Could I Want More for our listening pleasure. This is Jamie Lynn‘s first official single ever as a solo artist and as you can hear below, it’s a very strong first effort. Even tho I am not a big fan of Country music, there are a few Country artists and songs that I enjoy and I can really appreciate Jamie Lynn‘s new single. Have a listen, judge for yourselves. More »
