This Time She's Covering Nancy Sinatra
A little while back Lana Del Rey offered up visuals for her cover of Leonard Cohen‘s Chelsea Hotel No. 2. It seems like she’s in the mood to relive and re-lurve some of her favorite songs because she’s just released a video for Summer Wine, her cover of the Nancy Sinatra song. It’s LDR, so you know she’s going for the retro look in the video. We’ve definitely seen it from her before, but this is a nice little hold-over… until we get to hear that new track from The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Plus her real-life boyfriend, Barrie-James O’Neill (singer for Scottish band Kassidy), is all up in this too. Peep the video for more! I love this song, but I really love the little shouts-out to Billie Holiday at the end. I’m wondering if that’s a hint at LDR‘s next cover!
Earlier today I confessed that Drake‘s new song was on repeat, and I’m happy to say I now have two songs that I’ll be blasting all day. Right about now, everybody’s got Baz Luhrmann on the brain. Trent‘s been enjoying some of his old movies, and I’ve been mentally and emotionally preparing for the release of The Great Gatsby as well. One aspect of the film that I’m crazy-excited about is the music. Jay-Z produced the soundtrack and we got to hear snippets of some of the amazing songs when a new trailer dropped a while back. Today we get the full version of one of the songs I was most excited to hear– Florence + The Machine‘s Over The Love. Click inside for your first listen!
Featuring James Fauntleroy... But Seriously. Can't Stop Listening.
Well. This is awkward. The last time I put a Drake song on repeat had to be when HYFR came out, and I had just signed off on the paperwork to become a full-time writer for PITNB. LMAO, OMG… but those were special circumstances! I’m not… really… a Drake fan… am I??? When he first came out I vowed to never, fully take him seriously as a rapper/singer/anything that wasn’t my beloved Jimmy on Degrassi. But something’s changed in me y’all. He is dropping these new songs all over the place and… I really like them. 5 AM In Toronto was my jam, even Started From The Bottom grew on me a bit.. and now there’s this new jam! Girls Love Beyoncé (featuring James Fauntleroy) is currently on repeat and there’s nothing anyone can do about it, lol! The song dropped a couple of days ago, but click inside for your first listen if you missed it (or your thousandth listen if you loved it).
"Oh baby, I have no doubt you're the one that I want"
Last year the trio known as Emblem 3 made a bit of a splash on The X Factor before they were eliminated from the competition. Today we learn that Emblem 3 are still going strong and have just released their debut single. The guys — Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick — stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest to drop their new single Chloe (You’re The One) … which you can listen to in full below. More »
'What Would You Be Without Me?'
Okay, so last time I checked I was not a huge Fantasia fan or anything. However. When I saw that Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliot were featured on her new track, Without Me, you know I had to checkie out. The 2004 American Idol winner has a new album (Side Effects) coming out later this month, and apparently she’s been putting in some serious werk on the music. Which is a good thing. I feel like she’s been caught up in so much drama over the years, I kinda forgot she made actual music. So this is good. Oh, and the song is kind of awesome! Click inide for more!
Plus... Have You SEEN His Insane New Video With J. Cole?
First of all. We need to talk Miguel‘s cameo in J. Cole‘s new video for Power Trip. Miguel is featured on the song, and y’all are not ready for this video! Now, a little while back we learned that Miguel was teaming up with Kendrick Lamar for the remix to his How Many Drinks track. Well, the remix is here and it’s unsurprisingly dope. Click inside to checkie out, and to peep that new J.Cole video!
Produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz
We’ve been hearing some buzz about new Jay-Z music and it’s finally here! Jay‘s been making hella headlines recently, with his controversial anniversary trip to Cuba with wife Beyoncé, and his sale of stakes in the Brooklyn Nets. I was not expecting new music so quickly, nor was I expecting it to be a song he recorded, like, yesterday! Jigga addresses all the so-called controversies surrounding his name right now, and even talks politics and President Barack Obama. Click inside for your first listen!

In early February we learned that Fall Out Boy was coming back with a new tour and a new album titled Save Rock and Roll.

We are now just about a week away from the release of Save Rock and Roll and FoB are ready for YOU to hear the album in full. Click below to listen to the album in full RIGHT NOW and hear what the new era of Fall Out Boy music sounds like. Pay attention, you’ll hear some pretty surprising guest performances on the album.

A little while back we got to check out the cover art for Selena Gomez‘s new single Come And Get It, and now that the single’s here, that gorgeous red headdress makes a little more sense. As we all know, it’s a good time to be Selena. She’s got a sweet indie movie in theatres that’s doing pretty well, and the whole world was, apparently, waiting to hear this new single. The song premiered exclusively on Ryan Seacrest‘s website last night and ish got so cray the site totally crashed! Madness! Click inside to learn more and go HERE to listen to Come And Get It.
Plus Beyoncé & André 3000 Cover Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black'
Apparently, the people responsible for this year’s The Great Gatsby want me, um, orgasming my way all the way to the movie theatre on May 10. I cannot deal with the tracklist for this movie’s soundtrack! It’s like when the Belly soundtrack dropped, and I was, like, 15 and somebody had finally figured out a way to get DMX and Sean Paul and D’Angelo and Jay-Z and Method Man and Mya all on one CD. Except now I’m grown, and I’m freaking the freak out because Jay-Z, André 3000, Beyoncé, Florence + The Machine, Gotye, Emeli Sandé, Lana Del Rey and hella other folks are on what may be the greatest soundtrack in the history of soundtracks (brought to us by the one and only Shawn Carter), lol! Agh! Oh, and Bey and 3-Stacks are covering Amy Winehouse‘s Back To Black. It’s not a big deal. Click inside to see the full tracklist and to watch a new trailer featuring all this insane new music!
