Back in June we learned that Christian-Pop-turned-Secular-Pop artist Amy Grant was readying the release of her first ever remix album, which is out in stores TODAY! To celebrate, we get to check out the official music video for her Mega Mix single which features DJ Andy 7th Heaven. You may recall that I worked up a pretty epic #ThrowbackThursday post of some of my all-time favorite Amy Grant songs HERE, which you can revisit once you’re done watching this video a few times. Yay, Amy Grant! She’s back! Remixed and ready to conquer the pop charts again!!

"Hey Baby, Baby"
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.
Kanye is very fond of using the "N" word
In his GQ magazine coverstory interview, Kanye West revealed that the first single from his as-yet untitled new album (due out in September or October or November) would be a song titled All Day. Today we get our first listen of a very low-quality clip of the song which has leaked online. Revolt got their hands on the 2-minute bootlegged version of the song making the rounds today. As you can hear below, Kanye manages to use the “N” word over and over and over again and make it almost worth of pop radio. More »
Making Beautiful Music Together
Last week we learned that singer Ariana Grande and rapper Big Sean may be coupling up after they were reportedly seen making out at a movie theater in Florida recently. Today we learn that new couple or not, Ariana and Sean have gotten together for a new song collaboration titled Best Mistake. This new track, which you can hear in full below, will be featured on Ariana‘s new album My Everything. As you can hear below, Best Mistake is a breathy pop ballad (not unlike something you might hear on one of Mariah Carey‘s albums, tbqh) … have a listen, won’t you? More »
The 'Low' Down
Juicy J has released a new song titled Low that features guest rap performances by Nicki Minaj, Lil Bobby and Young Thug. The beat is somewhat reminiscent of Juicy‘s song with Katy Perry — Dark Horse — with that slower flow. Low is the first song that has been released from Juicy J‘s new album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. Click below and have a listen. More »
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 »
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!
"Of course sometimes shit goes down when it's a BILLION dollars on an elevator."
Don’t ask me what I’m doing up at 2 AM. Apparently, I’m baking a cake for my 4 year old’s birthday (!!!!) and listening to Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj spittin’ hot fi-ya on the Flawless remix. My eyes are a little blurry, but I’m pretty sure Bey just went iiinnnn, lol! I cannot believe she actually addressed the infamous Jay Z/Solange elevator fight in the most rap-tastic way possible. That is to say, she basically turned the beef into some baller-ass lyric and I can’t even be mad at her. Click below for your first listen and come inside for more! I’m exhausted… but I can’t stop playing this!
