Drizzy Takes It To DR
Earlier this month we got to hear Drake‘s latest single Started From The Bottom. I wasn’t really feelin’ the new track (mainly the idea of Drake claiming he “started from the bottom”), but I was still interested in seeing what he’d do with the video. While I do like certain parts of the video (and the beat is starting to grow on me), I still say Drake‘s been spending a lil’ too much time with French Montana, lmao. The visuals for Started From The Bottom take us through Drake‘s earlier years as a store clerk (that scene’s kinda hilarious), but we end up in the Dominican Republic with a soul train line, which was also pretty fun. Peep the video for more!
"Not really sure how to feel about it"
Rihanna lays herself bare in the just-released music video for her latest single Stay. As you may know, Ri Ri performed Stay live at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (which some of y’all said was your fave performance of the night) and just a day later the simple but striking music video for the song was released online. Stay is, IMHO, one of Rihanna‘s better ballads and I have to admit that I quite like the music video for it’s starkness. Check out the clip and see what you think. Like it or not, Rihanna is gonna do what Rihanna is gonna do. In this instance, she does it right.

YOU WILL LOVE THIS VIDEO!!!
Last month my girl Hustle Roses dropped a music video for her single NoHo and today she is BACK with a new music video for her latest single Sleepwalker. We are just days away from the release of Hustle Roses‘s new mixtape Bitters and the release of the Sleepwalker video is the PERFECT way to get the party started. As you can see in the embed above, the video for Sleepwalker is unlike any video you’ve seen before … it’s basically brilliant. Check it out, see what you think … fall in love, whatevs. Then click below to see the amazingly entertaining lyric video for the song. More »
Because We Need To Discuss Jack White's Performance, Among Other Things.
Last night, the 2013 Grammy Awards definitely did it up big. We’ve already checked out the winners and the fashionistas from the show, and I had to show some lurve to Rihanna, because her performance was definitely one of my faves. Now it’s time to recap all of the amazing madness that went down on the biggest night in music! It’s been awhile since we last gave out some PITNB Pinkie Awards, so click inside to re-live and re-lurve the best of the 55th annual Grammy Awards!

"Girl, you're my reflection"
After a very successful Grammy Awards performance last night (and just before a hugely successful live concert in Hollywood, CA), Justin Timberlake dropped a new song from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience for all to hear … and love. Mirrors is the newest track that has been released from JT‘s new album and as you can hear above, it’s pretty good. While I only marginally enjoy his first single Suit & Tie, I really love Mirrors from beginning to end. The song clocks in at over 8 minutes but it’s well worth your time, I think. Unlike Suit & Tie (which, IMHO, sounds too much like stale Justin Timberlake), Mirrors manages to meld the classic JT sound that we fell in love with all those years ago while offering something fresh and inventive. At the 5:40 mark of the song, the music and instrumentation carries on in a sonorous and melodic way that feels funky and new (and will likely get chopped off the radio edit). Take a listen and see what you think. If The 20/20 Experience is more like Mirrors than Suit & Tie, then I think Justin Timberlake is going to successfully satisfy both old and new listeners alike.
Rihanna Brings It
One of my favorite (out of many good) performances from last night’s Grammy Awards show was Rihanna‘s emotional rendition of her song Stay, featuring Mikky Ekko. I can’t think of the last time I was especially impressed by a Rihanna performance (not that I’ve really been keeping up lately), but something about this one got me. Did anyone else love this?
A Big Night For fun., Frank Ocean, And Mumford & Sons
Yes, I know. We have to talk Grammy fashion, lol! But first, I thought we’d show some lurve to the winners! I had a total blast watching the 55th annual Grammy Awards last night, even though I died a little inside every time Frank Ocean lost, lol! Aghhh! The agony! But he did score a couple of big wins, so I’m okay y’all. Really, I’m fine! Mumford & Sons, fun., Gotye, and Miguel (woot woot!) were also big winners. Click inside to see the whole batch!
He'll Also Perform One New, Unheard Track
PITNBR emily, you’re just gonna have to deal with the JT takeover. I know, I know. It’s hard, but it’s happening, lol! Justin Timberlake has been promoting his forthcoming album like cray, and now the whooole world (or at least, those watching the Grammy Awards) is about to be on their Suit & Tie ish. JT will open tonight’s Grammys with a performance of his single Suit & Tie, along with a previously unheard track. I’m pretty pumped! Click inside for more!
New Yelawolf And Slaughterhouse Too
Back in August we learned that Eminem had officially started working on his next album, and since then he’s been making his presence known here and there. He jumped on 5o Cent‘s My Life track with Adam Levine (and they shot the video in Detroit), and we also got to hear him on that trippy little Rihanna track, Numb. But we still haven’t heard much about the new album, until now. The president of Shady Records is speaking out and confirms that the album will be released this year, post-Memorial Day.

'Throwback Thursdays' Goes P!nk!
Earlier today we saw a brand spankin’ new video from P!nk, and we won’t even get into how much Just Give Me A Reason kinda just changed my life (and possibly made me cry… but we’re not talking about that). Now here on Throwback Thursdays I try to show lurve to artists whose music (or movies) I know pretty well, but this week it’s a little different. I have never identified as a bonafide P!nk fan… but that’s all about to change. You win P!nk, you win! Right now I’m listening to her 2006 track Dear Mr. President, and yeah. She reigns. And all you bonafide fans, please feel free to put me on to any of your fave songs! These are just some of the few I picked, mostly being familiar with her big singles. Click inside for more!
