M.I.A. did her esoteric thing back in 2010 with /\/\/\Y/\ but now she's ready to claim back the mainstream crowd that she won over in the "Paper Planes" days, without altering her style. Well put one down for M.I.A. because the Danja -produced single and Romain Gavras -directed video is exactly what M.I.A. needs. The single is Danja in his better form with the single's Punjabi-like vibe. The video is another political statement by the British born Sri-Lankan. M.I.A. slaps the Saudi Arabian laws in the face with [...]

Via: Rap-Up We were just across the way and saw this new song and video from Miguel entitled "Adorn." The song and video is lifted from Art Dealer Chic, Vol. 1 due out on February 27. Holy smokes, this song is some sensual goodness. “‘Adorn’ is the first visual projection i’ll release inspired by a series of dreams I recently had,” explained Miguel, who also painted the album’s artwork. Just watch and listen after because this is too good.
Hi, hello, yes it is our first post for the new year. What else can we say... What better way to start off the year, a month late, than with Madonna. The reigning matriarch of Pop has returned with a new era nearly four years since Hard Candy . The icon will release her twelfth studio album entitled MDNA on March 26 . With over a month to go before the release of the album the era is already promising to be a good one. The first blitz [...]

Last year, 2010, Ke$ha released the surplus of an album to Animal entitled Cannibal . Ke$ha stepped outside of her Dance-Pop sound for three minutes and twenty six seconds and what a good time that was. It was producer Bangladesh and artist Andre 3000 who helped to deliver the super great "Sleazy." Now, a little over a year, someone in Ke$ha's camp realized how great this song is and decided to release this. But instead of releasing the original track the current version has been chalked up with new verses from your favorite [...]

Via: HardCandyMusic Of the handful of people who accused Lady GaGa of biting their style a couple of years ago, Irish artiste Róisín Murphy was one of them. Since the claims and a few loose single releases (" Orally Fixated ") Murphy has been somewhat quiet. That's changed with the recent release of her song entitled "Simulation." Similar to "Orally..." the song is retro, disco and plain erotic. Lead by sex, the nine minute and ten seconds song is spread out with Murphy moaning and groaning over the bass thumping beat. We must [...]
Anthony Hamilton has returned with a new album entitled Back To Love . Dear Lord, the topic of love will never go away but it's okay because the artists do it justice with their multi-minute sonic pieces. Back To Love features many highlights and makes for a solid effort. However, we can't get over how oddly familiar the Keri Hilson-assisted "Never Let Go" sounds like Beyoncé's "Halo." One of the tracks, "Pray For Me," has us cooing on point. The soft song with the beautiful melody has Hamilton in a state of asking for forgiveness, a second [...]

Kevin Cossom has still not quite made it into mainstream territory but we like his collection of urban that he has released thus far. The latest is a track entitled "Where You Are." Cossom is telling a prospect to not waste his time if she is going to leave him heartbroken. It's a catchy and effective song, as with most of his songs. Listen after...

Madonna will be returning in 2012 with a new era of music and image. The Pop icon will kick things off at the top of the year with a halftime show that at Super Bowl XLVI that will surely knock some socks off. Madonna will perform with Cirque du Soleil and artists of the Moment Factory . Team NBC and Madonna seem to be pulling out all the stops for the show.
With Common's The Dreamer/The Believer dropping on the 20th of this month, more and more of the music is starting to surface. The latest is a collaboration with soulful crooner, John Legend, entitled "The Believer." You know, when we listen to certain artists there is a moment before we press play that has us hoping to hear a song that just soaks our souls and has us just wanting to replay the song over and over. A lot of times that does not happen but with "The Believer," it is most certainly one of those songs. [...]
Robin Thicke is about to release his fifth studio album, Love After War , on December 6, 2011 . Listening to the album, Thicke is sticking as close to the R&B/Soul sound as he can; there's not much of a mainstream sound on here as with Sex Therapy . There is however one little quirky track in the mix that has us addicted. That would be track number three, "Never Give Up." The song, with the motivational title and lyrics, is paired with something that sounds like an edited Disney instrumental. There is such a [...]

Elizabeth Grant bka Lana Del Rey has become a viral sensation with her vintage sonic style. We've always been captivated by "Video Games"; the song is just beautiful. Although, for some reason we just weren't completely pulled in by this true artist. Well, after the recent release of her latest single, "Born To Die," we had no choice but to became a full fan of Rey. The haunting orchestral production sounds like some alternative urban tune then those retro vocals come in and just leaves the listener in a deep state of thought. Her new album, Born [...]
Beyoncé just dropped another video, this time for the very rhythmic and sensual "Dance For You." The song is lifted from the Deluxe Edition of 4 and reminds us very much of Destiny's... "Cater 2 U." In the B&W video set in the 302s, 402s or is it the 502s? Anyway, in the B&W video Beyoncé dances like a stripper for some gentleman. It is just what we expected and is a good thing this time. Beyoncé was popping and cracking her body like nothing else. View after...
If there is one artist who is a testament to the fact that albums still do sell, it's Adele. With many believing the death of the album is in the near future, Adele fights that opinion. To this day Adele has sold more than 12 million copies of her sophomore album, 21 , worldwide. This is without desperate marketing strategies or silly gimmicks. In just two months from now the album will be a year old and it is predicted the album will have sold 13 million by that time. Adele is one of the few to bring raw [...]
