Listen: A Nine Inch Nails Fan Releases A Hilariously Brilliant Parody Titled ‘This Is A Trent Reznor Song’

"womp womp womp"

My friend Michael pointed me in the direction of a hilariously brilliant parody song that pokes a bit of fun at Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor and his songwriting style. Frederick Scott, who makes very clear on his Twitter profile that he is a big fan of Reznor‘s, penned and performs the song This Is A Trent Reznor Song which I think NIN fans (and anyone with a sense of humor, really) will enjoy. We’ve seen over the years that TR has a great sense of humor so I’d like to think that he’ll see the humor in this parody and be flattered … tho, we also know he has been in the best mood lately, so … yeah. In any event, click below to hear this parody and let it brighten up the rest of your day. More »

First Listen: Katy Perry Releases A Remix Of ‘Dark Horse’ Featuring Pitbull

No Juicy, All Bull
Katy teams up with Mr. Worldwide

Earlier today we saw CUTE video of Vin Diesel dancing his buns off in the privacy of his own home to Katy Perry‘s new single Dark Horse and right now, we get to hear a newly released remix of the track that features none other than Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Pitbull, as you may know, has famously collaborated with Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera … even our dear Britney Spears … so I guess it is Katy‘s turn to get the same treatment. Personally, I prefer the original version of the song with Juicy J on guest vocals but I’m sure there’s a market for this remix of the song … somewhere … probably at a gentlemen’s club in Miami. Dale!

First Listen: Jennifer Lopez Releases A New Song Titled ‘Girls’

More Urban
"At the end of the night, Girls just want to have fun"

Late last month we learned that Jennifer Lopez made her way to her hometown neighborhood in the Bronx, NY to film a music video for a new song titled Same Girl, which will be featured on her as-yet untitled new album due out later this year. While we wait for the release of Same Girl, we get to feast our ears on another new J. Lo track titled Girls that has made its way to the Internets. Girls was produced by DJ Mustard and as you can hear, it sounds a lot more R&B funky than her more recent high energy EDM song releases. As you may know, it’s believed that Lopez‘s new album will sound more like her earlier albums with that urban sound that made her a huge popstar in the early 00s. Take a listen to Girls above and see what you think. While I am more fond of upbeat songs, I am really excited that J. Lo is going back to her R&B/pop roots for her new album.

First Listen: Danity Kane Releases A Comeback Single Titled ‘Bye Baby’

"It might look insane / But it’s hard to walk in my shoes"

Back in August of last year we first heard that former Making The Band girl group Danity Kane were officially back together and planning a return to the music scene (er, sans one member … D. Woods unceremoniously got the axe). Since that time, the ladies performed a reunion/comeback concert at the House of Blues here in Los Angeles, CA and were met with an audience full of appreciative fans. Today we get our FIRST LISTEN of the group’s just released comeback single titled Bye Baby. As you can hear below, the song has a bit of a 70s/Disco sound that works well with their collective voices. Have a listen, won’t you? More »
