First Listen: Justin Timberlake Releases His New Single, ‘TKO’

From 'The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2'
'I’m out for the count/Yeah, girl, you knock me out'

Earlier in 2013 we all came to the realization that this was the year of Justin Timberlake. He came outta nowhere, announced one album– dropped it, killed the game– and then came through and announced a second album. I’m not gonna lie, I’d kinda forgotten that he was running 2013 until I saw him perform at the MTV Video Music Awards… and then I was like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s right. He runs 2013.’ After sharing some teasers on Instagram, Justin has officially released his new single TKO. I am loving this song right now; it’s my 6 AM cup a’ joe, and we all know Timbaland makes life happy. Peep the dopeness above! What are your thoughts on the new single?

The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 will be released on September 30.

First Look: Solange Releases An 80s-Inspired Music Video For ‘Lovers In The Parking Lot’

She's So Friggen Dope
Solange Goes Throwback In Her New Video

I know it’s Throwback Thursday y’all– and trust– if I had my Throwback body and my Throwback energy I would totally have another epic playlist for us today! But seeing as how someone lit’rally asked me if I’m having twins the other day (I’m NOT, lol), things are a little intense over here. So please, let’s enjoy Solange‘s sweet new video for Lovers In The Parking Lot (which has a pretty old school vibe to it anyway). And if you need something else to quench your Throwback thirst, feel free to revisit last week’s epic Ruff Ryders post!

Miley Cyrus Unveils Alternate, Nude Album Cover Art For ‘BANGERZ’

This Isn't Especially Surprising

Well, I suppose it was bound to happen. Remember those cool, fully-clothed, 80s-esque promo photos we saw for Miley Cyrus‘s new album BANGERZ? Trent really liked the pictures, what with the pop singer wearing clothes and all (I, too, am a big fan of fully-clothed Miley), but alas. There had to be one BANGERZ nudie out there, right? And it kinda had to come out after her ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth was spotted boo’d up with a model out in Beverly Hills. Le sigh. Click inside for more.

Watch: Kanye West Performs ‘Bound 2′ On ‘Later … With Jools Holland’

A lil' something for the Brits
With the amazing Charlie Wilson

Kanye West and his homie Charlie Wilson made an appearance on Later … with Jools Holland in the UK last night and delivered a performance of Yeezy‘s new single Bound 2 that truly does the song justice. Bound 2 is one of the more interesting songs on Kanye’s new album Yeezus so I’m glad that it’s been selected as the latest single. As you may recall, Kanye and Charlie teamed up with The Roots to perform Bound 2 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon here in the US last week … but IMHO, they really brought it last night. Check out video of last night’s performance above and enjoy.
