Love this song... love this movie!
Last night I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. And that’s all I’m gonna say about that because I don’t wanna be SPOILER girl. Wait, lemme just say one thing: I loved it. More than the first two, I loved it. Okay, that’s it! We have another new song from the soundtrack, this one by Major Lazer ft. Ariana Grande. All My Love is a pretty sweet dance track. I feel like I can definitely get excited about this collection. Peep the video above for more!
"You're not alone in anything / You're not alone in trying to be"
Thus far we have heard Yellow Flicker Beat, Flicker (Kanye West Rework) and Meltdown — all songs that are sung by or feature Lorde on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Today we get to hear the final Lorde song from the Mockingjay soundtrack, her cover of the Bright Eyes song Ladder Song. As you can hear above, Lorde puts her own spin on the already mournful track and makes it her own. It’s a fitting song for the Mockingjay soundtrack, I think. Have a listen, see what you think. IMHO, this song makes it very clear to me that Lorde did an excellent job curating songs for this movie soundtrack.
Are you a Hollaback Girl or Fergalicious? (It's okay, you can be both.)
Here is the thing about Gwen Stefani‘s debut solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. I went through a period of time in which I listened to that album every day, all day, incessantly. It scares me to think about how much I refused to listen to anything else. And as far as Fergie Ferg? Well, don’t tell anyone, but this guy I know who I maybe have three kids with once told me that he didn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day… except for the Fergie album, The Dutchess. Pretty sure I swore not to tell anyone that or something. #Whoopsie! Now that both women are back on the scene and working on new projects, we had to celebrate some of their best tracks from back in the day. Click inside for more!
But really, it's all about Lorde
Belgian artist Stromae is credited as the lead on the song Meltdown, featured on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 — which was curated by Lorde … but after you hear the song in full above, I think you’ll agree that it sounds like a Lorde song with guest vocals by Stromae … and Pusha T and Q-Tip and HAIM. Meltdown is basically the Lorde show with a bunch of friends guesting on the track. Have a listen above and see what you think. I like the song very much. It’s about as good as her other Mockingjay song Yellow Flicker Beat and way better than the Kanye West remix Flicker. Do you like this new track?
All day long yesterday, as you may have noticed, the Internets were going crazy over butt photos so someone decided to go straight to the man responsible for the most popular butt song to get his take on the matter. Sir Mix-A-Lot was asked about yesterday’s butt photo in question and in the process, he revealed that it was none other than Jennifer Lopez who provided the inspiration for him to write his massive hit song Baby Got Back. At long last, after all these years, we finally know that it was J. Lo‘s gluteus maximus that inspired the greatest ode to big butts ever! More »
... she is totally mum on when she plans to release it
It’s November and typically that means that Rihanna is ready to release a new album … but, it’s mid-November and we have yet to hear anything from Bad Gal Ri Ri about the imminent release of anything. While she was in Washington DC earlier this week, Rihanna did confirm that she has new music for us to listen to … but she didn’t offer any information WHATSOEVER about when we might hear this new music. In fact, her refusal to offer any real details about new songs or a new album means we may have to wait a while longer to hear anything new from Rihanna. Blah. Click below to read exactly what she said about her new tunes and speculate along with me, won’t you? More »

Inspired by female coffee producers in Costa Rica
Alanis Morrissette has released a video for her new song The Morning that was written for a documentary called A Small Section of the World that will open in select theaters and on VOD in December. The Coffee is inspired by the female coffee producers of Costa Rica and features percussion sounds created by Carlos Tapado Vargas utilizing coffee beans and the machinery that is used to make coffee. The project sounds very interesting and as you can hear above, the song sounds classic Alanis. Click the embed above to get your first listen of/look at The Morning.
"Coming out soon"
Director Kerry Asmussen gave an interview about an upcoming live DVD release he is working on for Guns ‘N Roses and in that same interview, he let spill that he is also working on a live DVD set for none other than Nine Inch Nails. Asmussen says that he directed two of the four shows that will be included on this alleged forthcoming live DVD release which he also claims will be “coming out soon”. Official confirmation of this NIN live DVD set has yet to be announced but it sounds like this Asmussen guy let the cat out of the bag early. Click below to learn more. More »
This is the Anthem
Back in August we learned that Eminem is planning the release of a new Shady Records compilation titled ShadyXV and last month, we got to see the cover art for the album. Today we get to hear a new song from the album titled Detroit Vs. Everybody and as you can hear, the rap anthem features an all-star collection of Detroit hip hop artists … including Royce Da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf and Trick Trick. The song contains some adult language so it is very likely NSFW but if you’re in a place where you can listen, you’re gonna wanna hear this great new song. ShadyXV will be released on November 24.
