'Looks Like A Girl, But She's A Flame'
Alicia Keys will be performing this song at the MTV VMAs on Thursday but we get to hear it now! And… it’s kind of awesome! I definitely like this track a lot more than the first single we heard (New Day) off the new Alicia Keys album. And praise the gods, Nicki Minaj takes a break from her Barbie/Roman/those other people voices and sounds like a real, live rapper! Sigh… I love when that happens. Take a listen and peep the lyrics for Girl On Fire at DirectLyrics. I’m very interested in seeing what Alicia‘s VMA performance will look like. She’s got a new ‘do, a new look, she can totally actually sing, and perhaps she’ll be bring Nicki on the stage with. Methinks we have some good times ahead!

This Is How We Do ...?
Kid Rock has teamed up with the NFL and Pepsi to create an anthem for the Detroit Lions and right here, right now we get to hear the song IN FULL. Now, before y’all get too excited … I have to confess … as much as I LOVE Detroit and I LOVE Kid Rock for his constant support of the city we both love … I really don’t love this new song (and I’m not alone). In Detroit attempts to tell the world “how things are done” in Detroit … and for the most part, the song is a great attempt but … well, why don’t you take a listen and see what you think. More »

No Doubt won’t release their new album Push and Shove next month but today they are releasing their next single, the title song of the album. Ryan Seacrest debuted the new ND single Push and Shove on his On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio program and right now we get to listen to the song in full. You can get your first listen of Push and Shove above but be warned, you’ll have to endure the annoying and repeating message that the song is being made available by Seacrest‘s radio show (you’ll know it when you hear it). The song has a very interesting flavor, I think. Take and listen and see what you think about the track.
Dear Martians, I Sincerely Apologize For This
Earlier today we heard audio of the first human voice broadcast on planet Mars via NASA‘s Curiosity Rover. At the time, we learned that will.i.am will have the distinction as the first musician to have one of his songs broadcast on another planet in the same way, via Curiosity. At 4PM ET / 1PM PT, Curiosity will play the song embedded above Reach for the Stars (Mars Edition). Take a listen and hear the first song that will ever be broadcast on another planet by human beings. What do you think of Reach for the Stars?
UPDATE: Click below to watch video of will.i.am talking about the message that he is trying to convey with Reach the Stars. More »
Earth > Mars > Earth
NASA‘s Curiosity Rover has taken another step forward in space exploration with the broadcasting of the first human voice on planet Mars. The voice of NASA administrator Charlie Bolden was sent from Earth to Curiosity on Mars and that message was broadcast on the planet before it was sent back to Earth. It’s the first time an audio recording was sent from our planet to another planet for broadcast. We don’t know yet if anyone (anything?) heard it up there on Mars but at least they know what we sound like now. Later today, the Curiosity Rover will broadcast, in the same way, a will.i.am song titled Reach for the Stars — that song will become the first piece of music ever broadcast on another planet. Take a listen to the audio message above and hear what was broadcast on planet Mars earlier today.
Coulda Used More Pusha T
The-Dream is a talented guy, and– in spite of some egregious errors in the relationship department (see Christina Milian divorce)– I always look forward to hearing his new jams. Dope Chick is a fun song, unless of course you recently saw Lupe Fiasco‘s new Bitch Bad video, in which case none of these songs are a helluva lot of fun, lol. But at least Pusha T is featured on the track. Y’all know how I feel about this guy… which is why I was really disappointed that he popped up at the beginning and then disappeared for, like, the whole song. He comes back at the end to spit his verse, but I literally spent the whole video waiting for him! Then again, I’m pretty sure this video was made with the fellas in mind, so there you have it.
Cool video! But next time, Dream? I’m gonna need more
cowbell Pusha T.
Just Wish It Wasn't About Centipedes...
Knife Party is an Australian electro house/dubstep duo that kind of just changed my life. Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen used to be members of the electronic rock band Pendulum but they’ve recently released their EP Rage Valley and now they have an official video for Centipede. I’m not a fan of this group’s name (I try to stay away from knife parties whenever possible), and I believe that all centipedes are evil beings sent here from the Hellmouth of nature… but I am so feelin’ this track! The beat is sick! And the title is appropriate, considering the rhythm of the piece. But if you loathe centipedes as much as I do, I recommend playing the video for the song’s sake and then pulling up another tab so you can check out those pics of Leonardo DiCaprio. Everyone else who ain’t never scurred, enjoy the video!

"It's true what you heard / I am a freak, I'm disturbed"
Last month we learned that Christina Aguilera was planning to release a new single this month and TODAY we get our FIRST LISTEN of the track! The single is titled Your Body and altho it hasn’t been released officially, the demo version of the song mysteriously made its way to the Internets for our listening pleasure. Now, keep in mind, the song you can listen to below is just the unfinished demo version … but I think it does give us a pretty good taste of how the song will turn out when it gets released officially. Click below and take a listen, see what you think. More »
So … um … I’ve got a new song that you need to hear … it’s by an artist named Borgore and it features Miley Cyrus on guest vocals. In all honesty, the song is really bad. I mean, it’s bad all on its own but with the inclusion of Miley, well, it’s just really bad. I’m not really sure what inspired Borgore to want to collaborate with Miley but, yeah, I think he needs to rethink his career trajectory if this is the kind of music he wants to put out. Take a listen and see what you think. Am I being too harsh? Does this song make you want to eat the whole cake? Is this song a hit … or a terrible miss?
