Also, Alicia Keys will appear on Maddy's new album
Altho we learned a few days ago that we won’t be getting Madonna‘s new album until next year, we are hearing today some exciting news about her new music. Diplo gave an interview to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 and he revealed that Madonna‘s as-yet untitled new single is produced and ready for release … when she’s ready to release it. Work is progressing on Maddy‘s new album, which is still being recorded. Madonna has revealed that Alicia Keys has been brought on board to play piano for the album and, well, even tho we have to wait a while longer to hear her new stuff, it all sounds very promising at this point.

But why am I just now discovering King Krule?!
The Smith family doesn’t always get my attention in the most positive way, but I like to keep an ear out for new Willow Smith music. She’s released a few fun tracks over the years and now she’s back with a cover of a King Krule track. I actually hadn’t heard of this artist until now, but I dig his original version as well.

From the new 3rd Eye Girl album 'PLECTRUMELECTRUM'
Earlier today we got to hear in full a new Prince song titled U Know that will be featured on his upcoming new solo album Art Official Age. Right now we get to hear a new Prince song titled WHITECAPS that will be featured on his new band 3rd Eye Girl‘s album PlectrumElectrum. As you can hear below, Prince doesn’t sing the lead vocal on this track so it may not resonate with diehard Prince fans. Click below to hear WHITECAPS in full and see what you think. The song is distinctly Prince, even if he’s not the one singing. More »
From his new solo album 'Art Official Age'
Last week we learned that Prince is readying the release of TWO new albums — one solo and one with his new band 3rd Eye Girl — which will both be out on the same day later this month and today we get a taste of the new music to come from His Purple Majesty. The Artist Formerly Known As O(+> has released a new song titled U Know that will be featured on his solo album Art Official Age and as you can hear below, it’s one of those funky jams that we have come to expect from Prince. I am SO crazy excited for the release of these albums, I can’t even tell you!! If you’re just as excited as I am, click below to hear what we have in store for us when his two new albums drop in a few weeks. More »
Ohhh, Bobbi Kristina Brown is a tricky one. On the one hand, she’ll attack a highly-respected actor like Angela Bassett in a non-sensical, offensive Twitter-rant, and you’ll be all like, “Girl. No.” And then on the other hand, she’s a young girl who lost her mother when she was even younger, and I can’t help but feel for her. Yesterday was the late Whitney Houston‘s birthday, and her daughter took to Twitter to share some love. Click inside for more!
The 'Low' Down
Juicy J has released a new song titled Low that features guest rap performances by Nicki Minaj, Lil Bobby and Young Thug. The beat is somewhat reminiscent of Juicy‘s song with Katy Perry — Dark Horse — with that slower flow. Low is the first song that has been released from Juicy J‘s new album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. Click below and have a listen. More »
Lil' Kim is a Lotta Angry
Yesterday we got to hear Lil’ Kim‘s response diss track remix of Beyoncé‘s song Flawless that takes aim squarely at Nicki Minaj. It would appear that Kim is still pissed at Nicki because she just dropped a new diss track titled Identity Theft that continues to show how pissed off Kim is at Nicki. As you can hear below, Identity Theft doesn’t actually mention Nicki Minaj by name … but the single cover art makes it PLAINLY CLEAR that Kim is going after Nicki for, apparently, stealing her identity. Have a listen, won’t you? More »
The Andre Agassi Reebok Pump Mix
Over the weekend, Lorde teased that her new single Tennis Court has gotten the remix treatment by Diplo and today, we get to hear the track. Personally, I love the original version of Tennis Court but Diplo puts together really sweet remixes so I’ve been curious to hear this one. I’m really taken by the brilliant titled that Diplo has given this remix … calling it the Andre Agassi Reebok Pump Mix … which is so freakin’ brilliant but only if you A.) know who Andre Agassi is, B.) know what Reebok Pumps are and/or C.) used to own a pair of Andre Agassi Reebok Pump shoes (like I did). Click below to hear this new remix and see what you think of it. More »
"Take Me Home"
The isolated audio track of Britney Spears‘s song Alien has leaked its way to the Internets which gives us an interesting take on the song in its more raw form. It’s hard to tell but this vocal still sounds like it was processed a bit in the sound mixing board but, for the most part, it gives us our clearest listen yet of Britney‘s vocals in the studio. It’s a shame that the promotion of Britney‘s album Britney Jean just completely disappeared once her Las Vegas residency started at the end of last year because Alien could’ve been a big hit had it been better produced and promoted.
