Jay-Z‘s American Gangster album is, without a doubt, a classic and I would, like, make out with my copy of it every day if that were at all socially acceptable. For that reason, I was wary of a mash-up of any sort, but how can I say no to Lana Del Rey? After hearing her with A$AP Rocky earlier this summer, I fell in love with the sound of her voice on a hip-hop track. The Miami production duo Urban Noize are the geniuses who selected one of my absolute fave American Gangster tracks, Say Hello, laced it with Lana‘s vocals, and voila! Hello, my new favorite mash-up, was born. Between this and that Nas and Amy Winehouse collab, I think I’ve found the soundtrack to my day. Take a listen and tell me if you likey!
'I Wanna Go Through My Red And My Cherry'
Earlier this summer we got to hear an amazing new song from Nas and Amy Winehouse. Cherry Wine was absolutely one of my fave songs of the season and I’m so glad Nas is finally releasing a video. The collaboration took place some time ago and Nas spoke about his close friendship with Amy when it was released. I also learned recently that the two share the same birthday, September 14. This explains, perhaps, the timing of Cherry Wine‘s video teaser release. Peep the clip above and the full version of the beautiful song inside. I’m so excited to see the full video whenever it drops, but in the meantime Cherry Wine is back on repeat!
Earlier this month we got our first look at the promo images from Glee‘s upcoming NEW Britney Spears tribute episode, titled Britney 2.0, and a couple of days later we got to hear the Glee versions of the Britney songs Gimme More and Boys. Today we get to see the promo video for the Britney 2.0 episode as we count down the days to the ep’s premiere next week. Glee will pay homage to the music of Britney Spears next Tuesday, it’s an episode you DON’T want to miss. This video promo may be short but OMG is it effective.

Last month the demo version of Christina Aguilera‘s new single Your Body was leaked to the Internets … where it stayed for our listening pleasure for a couple of days before it got yanked by the record label. Today, at last, the single has been released officially. The video embed above features the radio edit of Your Body which has Xtina singing “love your body”. The uncensored album version of the song will feature Xtina singing “f*ck your body”. The final version of the track isn’t all that different from the demo version we heard last month. Give it a listen and see what you think.
