Tinashe has been buzzed about for so long now that it’s hard to believe she still hasn’t released an album. Happily, that situation is about to be rectified on October 7 when Aquarius drops. The rising R&B diva unveiled the cover (a suitably sultry snap) and tracklist of her debut LP this afternoon (August 27) and both are absolutely mouth-watering.

The much-hyped set features the 21-year-old’s breakthrough hit “2 On” as well as sublime second single “Pretend”. There are a couple of features (“Bet” with Dev Hynes and “How Many Times” with Future) and a bunch of interludes (how very Janet Jackson) but the vast majority of the album is comprised of new solo material.

Brandon Flowers certainly doesn’t slack in the music-making department. This past June marked the 10-year anniversary of his band The Killers‘ debut LP Hot Fuss, and as a follow up to the quartet’s 2013 compilation Direct Hits — as well as his own 2010 solo album Flamingo — the Las Vegas pop-rock crooner has been busying himself by recording another solo LP, this time with Grammy-nominated producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Sky Ferreira, Kylie Minogue).

“He’s taking me out of my comfort zone,” Flowers told NME about working with Rechtshaid, while noting his new album will be out in 2015. “Normally I make demos and they’re pretty similar to how the song ends up. but he’ll take a song and be like, ‘I hear this’. It’s incredible – his palette and his range, what he’s able to say. At first we were butting our heads together, but now we’re hitting it off.” More »

Evidently she doesn’t have to worry about those pesky haters too much: Taylor Swift just shook and shimmied her way to a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The 1989 pop titan, who is no stranger to insanely high chart sales, just notched another major victory with the lead single from her forthcoming pop record, which she just performed at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Naturally, she’s gone and broke a bunch of records while doing so: “‘Shake’ arrives with 544,000 first-week downloads sold in the week ending Aug. 24, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sum marks the greatest weekly total this year and the fourth-best bow all-time,” reports Billboard. She also broke a radio record, debuting at #9 on Adult Pop Songs and #12 on Pop Songs. Quite simply, Swift just demolished the charts once again.

What do you think of Taylor’s “Shake It Off” victory? Let us know in the comments below. More »

Yelle’s Third LP ‘Completement Fou’ Was Produced By Dr. Luke: See The Full Tracklist

Aug 27th, 2014 // Comment

What the world needs now is another album from Yelle. That’s something I randomly said a couple of months ago and, somewhat surprisingly, the universe has delivered. Via Dr. Luke of all people! The French trio’s third LP Completement Fou was produced entirely by the super-producer and his associates. It drops September 30 on his label, Kemosabe Records.

Yelle’s irreverent brand of electro-pop has won them a loyal cult following around the globe but they still seem like an unlikely fit for the man behind Kesha and Katy Perry‘s mega-hits. However, the union could turn out to be a masterstroke if the brilliant title track is any indication. “Completement Fou” is an intoxicating dose of fizzy French techno — complete with rave keys and a monster chorus. So far, so good. Listen to the electro-anthem (and see the LP’s full tracklist) after the jump. More »

Sara Bareilles Loses Her Cool In The Latest Episode Of ‘Sound Advice’: Watch The Hilarious Exchange

Sara Bareilles is the latest artist to (barely) survive an episode of Sound Advice — a hilarious web series starring Saturday Night Live‘s Vanessa Bayer. She plays a media coach to the stars, who spews bad advice and insults at an alarming rate. While most guests try to grin and bear it (Haim and Bastille), the Grammy-nominated diva can’t contain her fury. And it’s awesome.

After listening to jibes about her hometown and drama-free approach to music, Sara finally loses her cool. ”Do you want me to tell you what a fucking bitch I think you’re being right now?” she asks before defending her image with the amazing quip: “I wear leather. That’s hard!” The look on her face during the exchange is absolutely priceless. Watch the “Brave” hitmaker explode up top. More »

Donatella Versace’s Ice Bucket Challenge Video Is The F***ing End-All (And She Nominates Pharrell & Prince)

The goddamn mic has been dropped on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos, and Donatella Versace had the final word. For her stunning clip, the Grand Drag Queen Of Fashion (no, no Karl Lagerfeld — have a seat, bitch) sat her hot ass in front of a camera and muttered something or other in Donatella-ese while two ridiculously ripped model dudes lorded over her with buckets that look like they cost the Average Joe’s annual salary a piece.

Lady Versace screwed up ALS by calling it “ASL,” but when she went to correct herself, it was too late — Himbo 1 and Himbo 2 poured their buckets on Donatella’s iconic wig, causing her to let out the same blood-curdling shriek we did when we found out will.i.am was exec-producing Britney‘s last album.
