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!
"I know a lot of you are rabid for info ..."
Last week we learned that Britney Spears is working with Watch the Throne producer Hit-Boy on new music for her next album and today we get a bit more information about Britney‘s recent recording sessions. Adam Leber, one of Britney‘s managers (alongside Larry Rudolph), updated his official Twitter profile last night to give fans a few more deets about Britney‘s progress in the studio. Altho he doesn’t offer much new information, he does confirm that Britney is working with Hit-Boy and he reveals another producer that Britney is collaborating with :) More »
Pure Power Popalooza
British boy band One Direction have been teasing the EFF out of the music video for their new single Kiss You and, at long last, the video is OUT!

"Alright, Listen Y'all"
Earlier today we got to hear the first new David Bowie song in about 10 years and right now we get to hear new music from another music legend who also recently released a new song. Prince is seemingly back with new music for 2013 with the cryptic release of a new song titled Same Page Different Book. The song was released via Twitter on an accounted named @3rdEyeGirl (“As promised… bootlegs 4 dayz”). It’s unclear if the song is an official release or if it’s a leak but … my gut tells me it’s an officially sanctioned viral leak of a new song that might prove to be a prelude to a new Prince album. Click above to hear the funky song in full and see what you think. I love it, it’s a really fantastic new jam. I really hope we get a new album soon … one can never have too much Prince music in one’s life.
After a 10 Year Hiatus, Bowie is Back with New Music
Completely out of nowhere, and on his 66th birthday, David Bowie released a new single and music video titled Where Are We Now?, the first from his just-announced forthcoming album titled The Next Day. It’s been 10 years since Bowie released any new music so, obviously, we were all caught unawares. As soon as the single was released, social media exploded with the news. Click below to watch the music video for Where Are We Now?, check out the single and album art for Bowie‘s new single and album and find out what other songs will be featured on The Next Day, due out in March.

Hmmm... What To Say About The Infamous 'Sherane'???
Okay. So I’ve been sitting on this video for a few days, trying to think of the best way to present it. As y’all know, I’m a big Kendrick Lamar fan (so is Lady Gaga… even though she acted ridiculous over their collaboration), and his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city is absolutely one of my faves right now. I was patiently awaiting the release of his video for Poetic Justice (featuring Drake) when this video dropped– BackSeat Freestyle! First off, I think it’s an awesome video. All black and white, shot in Kendrick‘s hometown of Compton as well as Paris, France– the visuals are great. The song is great, the beat is great, the NSFW moments are great! And then there’s Sherane. Très NSFW Sherane. Sigh. What to do with this girl, lol?!?! Peep the video for more and click inside to help me break down the booty-poppin’ moment heard/seen round the world.
Now … before we talk too much about this amazing news, let’s keep in mind that it would prolly behoove us muchly if we did NOT get all into an excited tizzy based on a 5 word tweet … BUT … it appears that Missy Misdemeanor Elliott is quite keen on working professionally with our dear Britney Spears. In response to a Missy tweet where she talked about the release of her new single with Timbaland titled 9th Inning, a fan asked her if she might be interested in collaborating with Britney if asked. To my GREAT EXCITEMENT, Missy responded in the affirmative … she is quite interested in working with Britney. Read what she had to say below. More »
The First Beef of 2013
I’m not exactly sure how this first beef of 2013 got so escalated but … things have gotten pretty heated between NYC rapper Azealia Banks and Detroit rapper Angel Haze. I guess Azealia tweeted some nonsense, as she is wont to do, and Angel responded by putting out a diss track. After some prodding, Azealia responded with a diss track of her own … and bam! The first beef of 2013 was born just 3 days into the new year. Click below to learn more and listen to these back and forth diss tracks. More »
