First Listen: Taylor Swift Releases A New Song Titled ‘Welcome To New York’

"The lights are so bright / But they never blind me"

Taylor Swift has released a new song from her upcoming new album 1989 and, IMHO, it’s the best song she’s dropped thus far. The first song from 1989 that Taylor released was the infectious but not entirely spectacular Shake It Off (I know a lot of people really love the song, I think it’s just OK). Then, Taylor released Out Of The Woods (a song she reportedly wrote about her brief relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction) which, I feel, is a really great pop song. Today we get to hear, in full, the track Welcome To New York which will be the first song on her new album. Click below and have a listen. More »

The Horror: Jaden Smith Says He’s The Best Rapper, Threatens To Unleash Multiple Albums

We are SO not ready.

When I saw that Jaden Smith’s music had made it to Paste Magazine the other day, my heart kinda sunk to the floor. THIS KID IS EVERYWHERE NOW, OFFICIALLY. So today I caved, and finally listened to the track I’d been hearing some buzz about, Melancholy, in which Jaden raps over the 1973 Pink Floyd song, Breathe. Okay. Fine. If I forget all of my feelings about Jaden Smith, I can appreciate the song and lyrics. But now Jaden is reminding me of why I feel the way I feel about him, with a recent announcement regarding 2-3 unreleased rap albums that will, apparently, shut down the whole rap game until FOR-E-VER.

First Listen: Calvin Harris Teases His New Song ‘Together’ With Gwen Stefani

It's a good day for Gwen fans
Just a Taste

Earlier today we got our FIRST LISTEN of Gwen Stefani‘s new solo song Baby Don’t Lie and right now, we get to hear more new music from Gwen. Calvin Harris has released a short teaser of his new song Together which features Stefani on guest vocals. Much like Maroon 5‘s collab with Gwen, My Heart Is Open, this new Calvin Harris song (from what I can discern from this preview clip) sounds much, much better with Gwen‘s vocals. Have a listen above and get a second helping of new Gwen Stefani music for the day.

Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott Performed At The Alexander Wang X H&M Launch Party In NYC

And she looked great!

Way back in February, Missy Elliott promised that her new album was “imminent” but here we are 8 months later and … nada. BUT, Missy did hop on stage Thursday night to perform at the launch party for Alexander Wang X H&M. Missy, as you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, showed off a slimmer look and from the look of that smile she flashed all night long, it appears she is loving life right now. It’s so great to see Missy performing again but that album? Yeah, I want it already!

Lana Forever

The TV Guide

Last night I attended the first of two Lana Del Rey concerts at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and I am happy to report that it was a practically perfect show in every single way. The last time I saw LDR, she played a show last spring in the truly awful Shrine Auditorium and while I enjoyed her performance, the always terrible venue was enough to mar the experience. LDR in a cemetery is the way life is supposed to be. My only complaint about the show was how short it was … but for the time that Lana was on stage doing her thing, the night was pure bliss. More »

First Listen: Gwen Stefani Releases A NEW SONG Titled ‘Baby Don’t Lie’

The Comeback Single
"I don't wanna cry no longer"

It has been a veritable lifetime since Gwen Stefani last released solo music and just a few weeks ago, we learned that she was putting the finishing touches on a new solo album. Today we get to hear the FIRST bit of new music that Gwen has released in 6 years … today we get to hear her brand new song Baby Don’t Lie. The song, I understand, was co-written by Benny Blanco (who worked with Kesha when she was Ke$ha and our dear Britney Spears) and Ryan Tedder of One Republic (which is evident when you hear the music). The song is more mid-tempo that I would’ve guessed but it is a crazy infectious song at first listen. The song will be available for download on iTunes in seconds, I’m sure (on Monday, to be exact). I gotta know … what do you think?

UPDATE: Should the embed above stop working, you can hear Baby Don’t Lie here:
