And Beyoncé Will Perform Her New Single
So the other day we got to hear a brand spankin’ new Destiny’s Child song, and it was kind of a HUGE deal! Trent damn near lost his mind over the new track (titled Nuclear), and I’ve started listening to some throwback songs just to mentally prepare myself for the rumored Super Bowl reunion. And by ‘listening to some throwback songs’ I mean ‘listening to Cater 2 U on repeat.’ We haven’t heard from the girls yet, or a representative, but hella sources are saying that the reunion is definitely going down!

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Ummmm. Yeah. So, early yesterday morning the love of my life was all like, ‘Did you see that new video from Vanessa Williams’s daughter?‘ And I was all like, ‘Ummmm no. WHAT?!‘ I couldn’t believe her daughter released a music video and I definitely didn’t expect it to be, like, good. You know how it is with these children of celebs– we give ‘em a hard time! Every time I hear about one of them coming out and doing stuff, I think of Tommy Hilfiger‘s son. Who is a rapper. Moving on. LMAO! Anyway, the love of my life went on to describe Vanessa Williams‘s daughter (Jillian Hervey) as kinda Erykah Badu-ish, but with some Lady Gaga maybe, and then a little Beyoncé. And I thought to myself, Hmmm. Erykah Badu + Lady Gaga + Beyoncé = Solange! I friggen love Solange! So I got really excited to watch the video for Treat Me Like Fire, and I was NOT disappointed. I love it. LOOOOoooooVE it. It starts off kinda scary, then it gets sexy, then fun… but still scary. Yeah, you gotta watch. Jillian Hervey is actually one half of the group Lion Babe; she’s joined by her producer Luca Goodman. The two are totally magic together and I love this song. Jillian can really, really sang and I like that she’s got her her own style.
Erykah Badu + Lady Gaga + Beyoncé = Solange (+ Kelis + some high kicks + a ferocious, hyper-sexual lioness) = LION BABE

After radio stations decided to pull Ke$ha‘s single Die Young from airplay in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting in Newtown, CT last month, love for the accompanying music video kinda, well, died young. But Ke$ha is BACK with a (probably uncontroversial but who knows) new music video for her second single C’mon. As you can see above, the video starts out with a little story line … then it gets all plushy and silly. I’m not sure exactly what the message Ke$ha is trying to convey but, honestly, I think I’m on board. Check out the clip, see what you think.

Big Boi Drops Some Stank On It
2013 may be the year of BEEF, but we’ve also decreed it the year of awesomeness in music. Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Destiny’s Child, and Beyoncé all have new music in the works which means it’s about to go doooowwwwn. Oh, and my boy A$AP Rocky‘s debut album drops next week sooo yeah! I’m pumped. A little while back Trent reported that everyone’s favorite ATLiens, Outkast, would be reuniting by way of a Frank Ocean track and it’s heeerrrrreeee! Pink Matter is a song off Frank Ocean‘s Grammy-nominated debut album Channel Orange, and it originally featured Andre 3000. But Big Boi decided, after some deliberation, to come through and put some mo’ stank on it. I loved this song when I first heard it over the summer, and I love the remix. I mean, Lucious Left Foot really brought it, and I’m so glad he decided to jump on this. Check out the audio above for more!
Oh, and my only beef with the YouTube version is that it cuts off a tiny piece at the end that I like from the original track. You can listen to the full version here.
IT'S HERE! LISTEN TO THE SONG HEREEEEEEEE!!!
Earlier we learned that Destiny’s Child is reuniting for a new compilation album that will include a new song titled Nuclear and right now we get to hear the song in FULL! OMG. D-Child IS BAAAACK and I’m DYYYYYING!!! The song is a mid-tempo jam … and it’s glorious. My guess is that we will get to hear Destiny’s Child perform the song LIVE in front of a LARGE audience soon … but … ENOUGH TALKING, CLICK BELOW AND HEAR THE SONG IN FULL! More »

Trent Reznor‘s new collective How to Destroy Angels, which features Mariqueen Reznor, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan, has unleashed a new music video upon the world. This new video, which you can watch in full above, is for the mostly instrumental track The Loop Closes. Loop is featured on the new HTDA EP An Omen and is one of my fave tracks. Check out the embed above to see the vid in all it’s glitchy glory.
I don’t know what was going on yesterday, but allll kinds of cray occurred. Between the Oscar nominations, and all the new music announcements, 2013 is not playing around! Justin Timberlake announced that he’s back in the studio, and now we’re getting word that Destiny’s FRIGGEN Child has been back in the studio as well. And if that’s not enough there’s also a new Beyoncé/Hottest Woman Of The Century album on the way! Click inside to learn more!
But No, No New Single... YET!
Earlier today Trent got us all hyped up for the possible, long-awaited musical return of the one they call Justin Timberlake. I know lots of us were hoping to hear a new jam, but it’s not happening today. However, y’all will be excited to know that it absolutely IS happening! At 9:01 am PST, just as promised, Justin tweeted a message to his fans: To whom it may concern…I think I’M READY! #JT2013. And he shared the above video, which shows him heading back into the studio! THEN, at the end of his video a countdown started on his official website, which leads me to believe that in THREE days, we’re gonna hear some new ish. Between this and Britney Spears‘s new album, methinks pop music is about to have a pretty ginormous year. Happy 2013, ya’ll! It’s going dooooowwwwwn!

The Song May be Released TODAY at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET
Last August there was a rumor going around that Justin Timberlake was working on new music for release … but shortly after the rumor took flight, JT‘s publicist squashed the report by claiming he absolutely was NOT working on new solo material. Last night, Justin posted a cryptic tweet that read “Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…” which immediately sent everyone into a tizzy. Billboard magazine is reporting that JT is not only planning to release a new single at the appointed time today but that he is also readying the imminent release of an ENTIRE NEW ALBUM! As if that wasn’t exciting enough news, rumor has it that Justin worked on this new music with Timbaland — and Jay-Z! UM, OMG! More »

Sooo, we have some very good news for those of you who’ve been waiting on more deets about Britney Spears‘s forthcoming album. Recently we’ve gotten confirmation that the album is definitely going down, and we’ve learned that Brit-Brit will be all up in the studio with Hit Boy and (my girl!!!) Ester Dean– which means we can expect some very good things. With this new report, I think it’s fair to say that Britney is taking her return to music very (vurrry) seriously. A close source has confirmed that Britney Spears has quit her job as a judge on The X-Factor! Something tells me that everybody’s pretty much okay with that, lol. Click inside to learn more!
