Last month, Lana Del Rey released two new songs (High By the Beach and Terrence Loves You) and announced that her new album Honeymoon will be out on September 18. Today we get to see a video sampler that features song snippets from her Honeymoon album. With just 10 days to go until LDR unleashes her next album upon us, she is giving us a taste of what we can expect. I like what I hear and I am very excited to hear more. Please enjoy.

A terrifying, powerful story of a child soldier and his warlord
Best Actor, Best Picture, Best Actress—whatever. Give all the Oscars to Idris Elba. This is the first full trailer for Beasts of No Nation and I’m as terrified—and excited—as I was when I saw a first look at director Cary Fukanaga‘s take on Uzodinma Iweala’s novel. In addition to looking forward to Elba‘s performance as a warlord training child soldiers (alongside newcomer Abraham Attah), and more great directing from True Detective‘s Fukunaga, this trailer shows us that we’ll be experiencing some beautiful cinematography as well. That shot at the 1:35 mark is absolutely breathtaking. Check out the trailer above for more!
Beasts of No Nation comes to Netflix and theatres on October 16.
"On behalf of the Brown and Houston families"
Just one month ago, Bobbi Kristina Brown was memorialized and laid to rest among family and close friends and today we get to share a bit in the funeral service that took place in early August. Director Tyler Perry was asked by the Houston and Brown families to share the tribute video that he put together in memorial of Bobbi Kristina Brown, a video that was shown only at her funeral service. As you can see below, the video features photos of Bobbi Kristina set to the music of the late Whitney Houston. The song, You Were Loved, taken from the movie soundtrack to Houston‘s film The Preacher’s Wife plays as images from BK‘s life are show. It is a very poignant, very sweet video memorial. Watch it in full below. More »
A week ago, we got our first look at some of the toys that will be offered for sale in conjunction with the release of the forthcoming sequel film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We learned that the toys would be released in a worldwide roll out called #ForceFriday where retailers would be open at midnight to begin sales. Among the toys, is an action figure of the mysterious character Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver). Altho we don’t know for sure, it seems likely that Kylo Ren is a “bad guy”/Darth Vader type character. The action figure/doll featured in the video above, gives us our first listen of Kylo Ren‘s voice as he delivers dialog from the movie. This first listen of the character gives us a bit of insight as to the kind of character he may be in the unfolding Star Wars saga. Have a listen above and “meet” what might possibly be the new Darth Vader.
The Title Track
Yesterday we learned that Janet Jackson not only confirmed the Unbreakable album art we saw earlier this week as genuine but she also announced the release date for her album (October 2). Today we get to hear a NEW song from Janet‘s forthcoming album, the title track Unbreakable. Janet has made her new album available for pre-sale and, as such, she is making her songs No Sleeep and Unbreakable available for immediate download to folks who pre-purchase the album. Click the embed above to hear JJ‘s title track Unbreakable and get another taste of what’s to come from her new album, out in less than a month.
A new 'Empire' soundtrack cometh
In early August, we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming second season of Empire on Fox and today we get something even better. Fox has released two new original songs that will be featured on the show when Empire returns on September 23. The first song, No Doubt About It, was written by Ne-Yo and features Empire actor Jussie Smollet and rapper Pitbull on vocals. The second song, Ain’t About The Money, features Empire co-stars Smollett and Bryshere Yazz Gray. Click the embed above to hear No Doubt About It and below to hear Ain’t About the Money. Additionally, read on to learn more about these songs and their availability on the forthcoming soundtrack album Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 2 Volume 1. More »
Coming September 22
The debut season of Scream Queens will premiere on Fox on September 22 and today, courtesy of show creator Ryan Murphy, we get our first look at the “super-sized” main title sequence to the show. As you can see above, this opening title sequence is really stylized and, honestly, is very cool looking. Each of the main actors are introduces in between scenes of the show’s characters screaming alongside the villainous devil character who will torment them on the show. I still have my doubts about Scream Queens overall but I must admit that I do like this opening main title sequence for the show. Scream Queens premieres on September 22.
