From the 'Southpaw' soundtrack
Back in October of 2011, we first heard that Eminem was involved with a boxer movie that he was rumored to star in. We’ve since learned that the movie, Southpaw, stars Jake Gyllenhaal and will be out later this year. Eminem is still involved, tho, as he has at least 2 songs on the official motion picture soundtrack for Southpaw. Previously, we heard his song Phenomenal in the most recent movie trailer for Southpaw and today we get to hear a new song from the motion picture soundtrack, Kings Never Die. As you can hear below, Kings features Gwen Stefani on guest vocals. Check out the track and see what you think of Eminem and Gwen‘s new song. More »
"Cover your ears because you're about to hear a woman just scream"
Back in May, Prince and his new band 3rd Eye Girl released a song titled Baltimore that was written and released in support of racial tension that erupted on their streets due to police brutality and abuse of power. Today we get to hear a new song from Prince and 3rd Eye Girl that has been released for an entirely different reason … a very sexy reason. The new song featured below is titled HardRockLover and it sounds very much like the sexier Prince that used to reign supreme in the ’80s and early ’90s. It’s unknown if this song, as well as the other new music (HERE and HERE) that Prince has been performing on tour lately, will be released on a new album but any new music is good news to me.

"Take me down into your paradise"
Demi Lovato is coming at us with a fun new summer song that is due for official release soon but has managed to make its way to the Internets for our listening pleasure today. Cool For the Summer was co-written by Demi along with the legendary Max Martin and his collaborators Ali Payami, Alexander Erik Kronlund and Savan Kotecha (who wrote Demi‘s 2014 summer single Really Don’t Care). This sound is very new for Demi as she ventures into a pop sound with this track … and seeing how I can’t stop playing this song over and over again, I’d say I’m a fan. Click below to see the cover art for Demi Lovato‘s Cool For the Summer and give the song a listen. I have a feeling you may like it. More »
And it's the best new song yet!
Thus far this year, Veruca Salt has released 2 new songs (HERE and HERE) from their new album Ghost Notes (due out next month) and today we get to hear the latest offering from the band’s new album. In the past year, the band has released 4 songs (the two from Ghost Notes and the Record Store Day single 2014 tracks Museum of Broken Relationships and It’s Holy) but after listening to the new song below, I must admit that Empty Bottle is their best new song yet. When I say that I have been aching for YEARS for the return of Veruca Salt, it is because when they work together on music they give us amazing songs like Empty Bottle. Slow and sweeping, then loud and powerful — Empty Bottle has it all. Have a listen below and fall in love. More »
"I dedicate this to My Love."
Last week we got our first taste of Janet Jackson‘s first new single in 7 years, a song titled No Sleeep that will lead the way for JJ‘s return to the music scene. The song will be released for sale at the stroke of midnight tonight but right now, we get to hear No Sleeep in full. As the snippet released last week suggests, this new song is a slower, mid-tempo song that sounds reminiscent of her 1993 single That’s The Way Love Goes. Janet has dedicated this song to “her love”, which of course is her husband Wissam Al Mana. Click the embed above to hear No Sleeep in full and see what you think about it. Janet is back.
"I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh"
For a few weeks now, Selena Gomez has been hinting that she would be releasing a new single, just in time for the summer music season. Today we get our first listen of Selena‘s new single, Good For You, which features a guest rap performance by A$AP Rocky. The song is a slower jam, which is nice, but as always, I was hoping for a more upbeat, poppier dance track. The song is OK but I can’t say that I’m really feeling it. The lyrical content, which is meant to be a sweet love song for her man, does’t really jibe with me. Click below to have a listen, read the lyrics and see what you think of Selena and A$AP Rocky‘s new song Good For You. More »
The song will be released in full on June 23
Oh. My. GODS. It’s here. Our first actual sampling of Janet Jackson‘s new single is here. According to the music blog Ultimate Music, Janet‘s new single is titled No Sleeep and it will be released in full next Tuesday, June 23. A 30 second sample of the song has made its way online and as you can hear below, it’s a slower midtempo ballad-type song that feels like it wants to amp up into the funkier dance pop range. Personally, I’ve been hoping for a club banger dancey single but this small taste of No Sleeep sounds just fine to me. Click below have a listen and get your first sampling of Janet‘s forthcoming new single No Sleeep. More »
While I’ve been distracted by the almost release of Madonna‘s (messy) music video for Bitch, I’m Madonna, Janet Jackson quietly released a short snippet of NEW MUSIC on her official Twitter profile. The song title isn’t revealed in the tweet below but this clip of music starts out with the lyric, “I lived through my mistakes / It’s just a part of growing“. Handwritten lyrics to the song are featured in the 43 second song clip, which you can watch below. It’s a slower song but I have a feeling it will be like the calm before the storm. Stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and have a listen of this first new piece of Janet Jackson music in an ice age. Woot! More »

'We Belong Outside'
An industrious fan came up with the brilliant idea to mash-up a Taylor Swift song with a Calvin Harris song and as you can hear above, it’s a perfect match. The mash-up embedded here features vocals from Taylor‘s song You Belong With Me with music from Calvin‘s song Outside and is aptly titled You Belong Outside. It’s pretty amazing how well the two songs go together … kinda like Taylor and Calvin‘s ongoing romance. This is what it sounds like when Taylvin make beautiful music together. Enjoy.
