"I can't seem to live without your love ..."
Just two days ago, Mariah Carey announced that she would be releasing her new single You’re Mine (Eternal), the first single off her new album, this week and today we get to hear that song in full! Mimi debuted the song earlier today on the radio and then released the song online for the rest of us. The song is hot. It’s reminiscent of the sound that Mariah gave us on her albums The Emancipation of Mimi and E=MC2 … in particular, You’re Mine (Eternal) hearkens back to the vibe of We Belong Together — one of MC‘s biggest hits and one of my fave Mimi songs. I’ve already listened to this song twice and I cannot get enough. Have a listen above and see what you think. This new single bodes very well for how the rest of Mimi‘s album (due out May 6) will sound. I’m so excited!!!
"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 »
"Tonight I'm running free"
Last week we learned from Kylie Minogue herself that she is readying the release of a new single titled Into The Blue when she released a photo that was snapped on the set of the music video for the track. Today she shares with us the lyrics to the song in a photo that she shared on her official Twitter profile. Kylie took a photo of the handwritten lyrics to Into The Blue and then signed them with a kiss … which is such a Kylie thing to do ;) At this point, we haven’t yet heard the song but at least we get to read the lyrics to Kylie‘s much-anticipated new single below.

But are the lyrics homophobic?
His purple funkness Prince has released a new single titled Da Bourgeoisie and as you can hear in the video embedded above, homeboy is smartin’ something fierce over getting dumped by his lady … for another lady. As you might expect, the song is a funky jam that tells a love story as only Prince can but a closer look at the lyrics suggests that the way he is delivering the story may be homophobic. No one likes to get dumped by a lover but it seems especially insulting to some people if they get dumped by a lover for someone else of the same sex (ie. a guy gets dumped by a girl for a girl, a girl gets dumped by a guy for a guy). Clearly, according to the lyrics of this song, Prince is one of those people. But is he really being anti-gay with this song? Check out the lyrics of Da Bourgeoisie below and let’s discuss. More »

PLUS, 'Perfume (The Dreaming Mix)' leaks to the Internets
Earlier this month, our dear Britney Spears released the ballad Perfume as the second single from her upcoming new album Britney Jean and today we get to see the just-released lyric video for the track. According to Britney herself, she is currently filming the music video for Perfume and to tide us over the lyric video for the song has been released. Late last night, the stripped down alternate version of Perfume (The Dreaming Mix) leaked its way to the Internets. Having heard the more stripped down Dreaming Mix of Perfume I have to admit, I really like the less produced, more raw version of the song. Check out the lyric video above and hang on tight, Britney will be comin’ at us with the official music video for the song soon (I hope)! Click below to hear Perfume (The Dreaming Mix) More »

"Tonight I'm Gonna Hold You Close"
Earlier this month we got to hear Kelly Clarkson‘s new Xmas single Underneath the Tree, the first from her forthcoming holiday album Wrapped In Red and today we get to check out the ENTIRELY adorable lyric music video for the song. I believe a proper music video is still on the way but in the meantime, we get to check out this supercute animated lyric video for Underneath the Tree. The more I hear this song, the more I like it. I have a feeling that Kelly‘s Wrapped In Red album is going to be a must-own holiday album for every pop music fan. Check out the video above and see how cute it turned out. Are you feeling this Xmas song from Kelly? Is this an album that you think you may want to own?
"Why be a king when you can be a God?"
Eminem has been regularly releasing new info about and new music from his upcoming new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and today we get our first listen of a new song from the album titled Rap God. As the title suggests, Eminem‘s lyrics explain in great detail why he believes he is a god of rap and by listening to his delivery of the lyrics, it’s hard to argue against his point. Click the embed above to hear Rap God in full then click below to read the lyrics to the song. When he starts spitting his rhymes in that sick rapid-fire staccato way near the end of the song, it becomes clear how Eminem can make such a boastful claim. This song is really good. Have a listen and see. More »

Earlier this week we got our first look at the cover art for Lady Gaga‘s new album ARTPOP and today we learn which songs will be featured on the album. Gaga unveiled the tracklisting for ARTPOP on Twitter last night with a little help from some of her loyal fans. Gaga commissioned a group of fans who have been camping out in front of her recording studio “for a month” to paint the song titles on a wall, which was then photographed and released on Twitter. Additionally, Gaga is releasing today a lyric video for her new song Aura which features scenes and imagery from the sequel film Machete Kills (the film she stars in which opens in theaters this Friday). Click below to see the tracklist for ARTPOP then watch the lyric video for Aura, one of the songs featured on the album. More »
