"If you really need me ..."
It’s been a few weeks since Ariana Grande released her collab with The Weeknd, Love Me Harder, so it’s about time we get the now-standard lyric video accompaniment. While we wait for the official music video to hit the Internets, let’s bide our time with this just-released lyric video. Do you know all the words yet?
Late last month, Fergie Ferg officially released the audio of her comeback single LA Love (La La) and, in the process, asked fans to submit photos of themselves making the LA sign with their fingers. She also asked for fans to submit photos they have taken of or with Fergie over the years. Those photos have been complied into a fun lyric video for LA Love (La La) which you can check out above. I am still really loving this new song so I’m happy to share this new video with all y’all. If you happened to submit a photo for possible inclusion, watch the video above carefully to see if you made the cut.
aka 'The Song About Harry Styles'
Yesterday we got to hear a very short snippet of Taylor Swift‘s new song Out of the Woods, the second from her forthcoming new album 1989, and as you may recall — that snippet was painfully short. Today we get to hear the song in full and, as you can hear above, it’s a pretty great pop song. Rumor claims that this song was written about Taylor‘s short romantic relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction and a careful dissection of the lyrics appears to back up that rumor. Have a listen of the song in full above and then click below to read the lyrics and see if you can piece together Taylor‘s romance with Harry from the lyrics of this song. UPDATE: If he embed above isn’t working, there is a working stream of the song below. More »

Let the interwebs go CRAY!
If Beyoncé is pregnant, I’m gonna lose my mind. I just feel like, she’s going to be rocking that Dita Von Teese maternity wear I was just talking about and it’s going to kill me inside. I feel like she’ll be way more open, and sharing pictures of her perfectly-formed baby bump on Instagram, and it’s just going to be annoying. And then there’ll be that one photo of Jay Z with his hands on her belly, and I’ll just give up… on the prospect… of Jay and I ever getting [back] together. Anyway, he maybe just announced that they’re totally pregs again. Click inside for more!
"This is more than just a little thing"
Last week, we got our first listen of Hilary Duff‘s newest single All About You and today we get to check out the just-released lyric video for the song. As you can see above, Hilary does appear in this lyric video which, to be honest, looks very much like an official music video … with lyrics. I expect that the official video will be released soon but for now, we can enjoy this vid. I have to say, it’s really great that we have new Hilary Duff music in the world again. It’s great to have her back.
A couple of weeks ago we got to see some behind the scenes footage from the set of Nicki Minaj‘s music video for her new single Anaconda. The video isn’t quite ready for release just yet but we do get to check out the just released lyric video for the track. As you can see above, the video uses static images and old Nicki footage throughout along with extreme close-ups of Nicki‘s buns, hun. The lyrics are also uncensored so it’s probably pretty NSFW. Have a look above to learn the lyrics to Anaconda and stay tuned, the final music video should be upon us soon.

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!
Because when rappers get hella emotional, it's always epic!
Last week for #ThrowbackThursday we took it back to 1998 and it was a blast. This morning I did something I do almost every morning, and I went to YouTube to watch Three 6 Mafia’s Stay Fly video, which eventually lead me to Int’l Player’s Anthem and it got me thinking about how good it feels when rappers spit love songs. OMG. It feels so good. So today we’re looking back at some of the mushiest, gushiest rap songs of all time. Click inside for more!
