"Who’s Cooler Than This Witch?"
Last week we got our first look at the cover art for Azealia Banks‘s new single Yung Rapunxel, which is the first from her upcoming debut album Broke With Expensive Taste (due out later this year … sometime … I think). Today we get to hear the track in full. Azealia released the single on her official Twitter profile earlier today giving us a taste of what’s to come when she finally releases her first full-length album. Miss Banks has been generating a lot of buzz with the singles and mixtapes she’s been releasing herself over the past couple of years (and has garnered attention for the Internet antics and social media feuds she’s gotten mixed up in) but this is our first taste of what her serious music career may sound like. Click below, take a listen. More »
Maybe He's Making Time For A Nap?
As we all know, it ain’t easy growing up Bieber. In the past week or so, Justin Bieber has been exhibiting the early signs of a possible teen pop star meltdown. Either that, or he just needs a nap. He recently got into an almost physical altercation with a paparazzo, he got in big trouble for starting his London concert late, and he ended up in the hospital after collapsing onstage during another concert. Now we’re learning that he’s cancelled one of his two upcoming performances in Portugal. Click inside to learn more.

Well Done, MTV. Well Done.
So, every year MTV puts together a roundtable of knowledgable folks in Hip-Hop and they sit around debating about the hottest MCs in the game, until a top 10 list is compiled. And every year, everybody (well, everyone who cares… including me) rages over the final top ten list. But this year, most folks are surprisingly satisfied with the number one pick for the Hottest MC In The Game, and so am I. Kendrick Lamar, who just recently dropped the visuals to Poetic Justice (one of my favorite songs off his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city) was crowned number one and I think that makes perfect sense. Click inside to see who else made the Top 10!
Micah Otano Seeks An Undisclosed Amount For Co-Producing The Track
Look. Any Frank Ocean news is good news because any Frank Ocean news reminds me that I haven’t listened to Channel Orange in 24 hours, and thus inspires me to get back on that. So. All that being said (and Pyramids currently playing in my ear), there is some bummer news for Frank today. The Grammy Award-winning artist is being sued for some missing production credits on his debut album. Click inside to learn more.

From 'Oz the Great and Powerful'
Last month we got to hear, in full, Mariah Carey‘s new song Almost Home which is the lead single from the soundtrack to the film Oz the Great and Powerful … a couple of days later, we got a sneak peek at the music video. Today, in honor of the film’s release today, we get to see the full music video for Almost Home. As you can see above, all Mimi needs is a chair and a wind machine to do the damn thing so … check out the embed above and behold, Mariah the Powerfully Great!
WE ARE NOT WORTHY
OMG, have I got some GREAT news for you 90s music rock fans. The amazing band Veruca Salt has made their debut on Facebook and Twitter and are bringing us a load of amazing old school throwback photos from the band’s early days. As you may know (and you should know, considering how effing amazing VS is), the band broke up in the late 90′s and lead singers/guitarists Louise Post and Nina Gordon carried on with separate careers. Nina went solo and Louise reformed Veruca Salt and kept the band name alive. After many, many years apart it would seem that the original members of Veruca Salt want to remind us of the good ol’ days with the release of these previously unseen throwback photos. Man. I can’t even go into how much I loved and still love Veruca Salt. I love many bands for many reasons but Veruca Salt holds a very special place in my heart that is SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED by this “return”. More »
Last week Daft Punk teased us with 10 seconds of new music when they released a short video commercial during last weekend’s broadcast of Saturday Night Live. Today we get to hear the entirety of a NEW song that has reportedly “leaked” online. The song is apparently titled Dancing to the Beat and can be heard in full above. I’m suspicious of this “leak” because I’m suspicious of many things on the Internet. When the 10 second Daft Punk commercial was uploaded online last week, it was yanked offline soon thereafter by the record company. This “leaked” song has been online for many hours now and it has yet to be yanked. It’s quite possible the song has been strategically released online to generate buzz … but does it really matter? Take a listen to the song and see what you think. It deffo has that Daft Punk sound to it … I can’t wait to hear more.
A Very, Mini Throwback Thursday :)
I know, I know! One throwback song is never enough! But I’m in the midst of some craziness at my apartment, and I’ve been working all day from a hotel… with two little boys… who think we’re on some kind of super-fun vacation (well, I did tell them that), which involves them turning the hotel closet into a ‘spaceship’ (their words, not mine). LOL, yeah. So… I’m exhausted! But I have been rocking out to last week’s Throwback Mariah Carey post, which led me to the other throwback Mariah post, which eventually led me to the amazingness that is Ghost Down DJ’s My Boo. You’re welcome. And just put this one on repeat until next Thursday… I know that’s what I’ll be doing, lol!
