First Listen: Hilary Duff Releases A Second Single Titled ‘All About You’

"Hey Baby, Baby"
"You could be my dirty secret"

Just a few weeks ago, Hilary Duff released the music video for her comeback single Chasing the Sun. Today, we get our first listen of her just released second single, All About You. I’m guessing that Hil. D decided to drop a new song so soon because of the lackluster response for her earlier single. Or, she may be just really excited and wants to release as much music as possible. This new song is fun. It’s been described as Sheryl Crow-sounding but I don’t think that is a bad thing. It’s great to hear new music from Hilary Duff again so I hope she keeps dropping new music often.

First Listen: Lil’ Kim Comes For Nicki Minaj AGAIN With A New Diss Track Titled ‘Identity Theft’

Lil' Kim is a Lotta Angry

Yesterday we got to hear Lil’ Kim‘s response diss track remix of Beyoncé‘s song Flawless that takes aim squarely at Nicki Minaj. It would appear that Kim is still pissed at Nicki because she just dropped a new diss track titled Identity Theft that continues to show how pissed off Kim is at Nicki. As you can hear below, Identity Theft doesn’t actually mention Nicki Minaj by name … but the single cover art makes it PLAINLY CLEAR that Kim is going after Nicki for, apparently, stealing her identity. Have a listen, won’t you? More »

Was This Lil’ Kim ‘Flawless’ Remix Diss Against Nicki Minaj Really Necessary?

Apparently, it was...

As you all know, I have been binge-listening to Beyoncé’s Flawless remix over the last couple of days and it has been glorious. Now here’s a funny thing. I a such a Lil’ Kim fan that the first time I heard the song I did, in fact, flinch at Nicki’s line, “The queen of rap, slayin’ with Queen B,” because every time I hear a Queen B reference in a rap (or any reference to queens, really) I automatically think Lil’ Kim. However, I also know that it’s ridiculous to ask that no other rapper ever reference herself as a queen of rap, or reference another artist as a Queen B just because it makes me think of Kim. So when I heard that Kim released a diss remix to the remix, I was all like Sigh. I’m not sure that this was entirely necessary, but click inside for more!
