A Page Six report that Beyonce and Jay Z could be joining forces for a 20-date summer tour had the internet buzzing overtime today (April 16). It sounds almost too good to be true but the Los Angeles Times also chimed in — predicting that The Mr. & Mrs. Carter Show would kick off on June 13 in Atlanta and wrap up on August 6 in San Francisco. They cited an inside source.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up in case this falls through but it’s hard not to wonder about the setlist. Obviously Bey and Jay would perform their own hits but the power couple finally has ample opportunity to tackle any (or all) of their brilliant collaborations. While everyone knows “Crazy In Love” and “Drunk In Love” (I hope), the duo has joined forces on at least eight other times. Peruse our list after the jump and please note that the songs are ranked in no particular order.  More »

Kylie Minogue‘s Kiss Me Once promo blitz continues with a stunning Australian Vogue cover shoot. The pop icon literally glows in the gorgeous photo thanks to the her metallic bodice, the golden lighting and her flawless complexion. It’s hard to believe that the veteran kicked off her mega-successful recording career in 1987 because she looks half her age.

When she’s not holding a master class on how to pose for magazine covers, Kylie is still busily working on her Kiss Me Once campaign. Pharrell-produced second single “I Was Gonna Cancel” drops May 12 and she has already commissioned a mind-blowing remix by Aussie electro-pioneers The Presets.

Disney has successfully book-ended the past two decades with back-to-back hit soundtracks. Frozen, released last November, has matched the 10-week reign of fellow Oscar winner The Lion King atop the Billboard 200, the last animated feature soundtrack to spend as much time at #1. The time span between the two albums’ chart runs is almost 20 years, with the soundtrack to The Lion King — which contained the Elton John hits “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Circle Of Life” — having been released on May 31, 1994.

Billboard points out that the Frozen soundtrack has now sold more than 2 million copies, easily making it the biggest-selling LP of 2014. In fact, no other album has even crossed the 1 million mark. This week the album added another 133,000 copies to its total.

Don’t you love it when titans of EDM collide? Afrojack recently called on David Guetta to overhaul his Wrabel-voiced single “Ten Feet Tall” and the French DJ works his usual magic — transforming the soaring dance-pop anthem into a sprawling floorfiller that will, no doubt, be played in clubs from Atlanta to Amsterdam.

The French hitmaker does an excellent job of separating the track’s electronic and acoustic elements. There are moments when everything stops to let the guitars shine but they always give way to an explosion of fast and furious synths. Afrojack’s debut LP Forget The World drops May 19 and boasts features from Sting and Wiz Khalifa. Listen to Guetta’s “Ten Feet Tall” remix after the jump. More »

Tomboy’s “Roll Out” Is Another Synth-Pop Standout For 2014: Watch

2014 has been a great year for new synth-pop, from Allie X‘s soaring “Catch” to X priest X‘s uplifting “Sophie K” and a bevy of new acts without an “X” in the name. And now we have another addition, with Brooklyn duo Tomboy.

Sarah Aument and Will McIntyre’s debut single “Roll Out” (not a Ludacris cover, that would be “Rollout”) matches tribal-flavored fills and a yearning, wordless vocal melody with a synthetic four-on-the-floor pulse that pumps liquid-mercury synths. The result is a punchy and assured piece of dance music, made even more impressive when you realize it’s from their forthcoming self-titled debut EP.

The “Roll Out” music video premiered today (April 16), so check it out below. More »

Chvrches have made a nice little side-career covering other artists, and now the Scots have covered themselves. For the deluxe reissue of their highly enjoyable debut The Bones Of What You Believe, the trio have remixed the LP’s three marquee tracks, turning “The Mother We Share,” “Recover” and “Gun” into plaintive bits of dream-pop. The synths in all three take a back seat to Lauren Mayberry’s vocals this time, thus highlighting the subtle emotions that she’s able to evoke with her instrument.

The chipper and pulsating “Mother” has been transformed into a swaying ballad, and “Recover” likewise has been toned down with a bed of atmospheric Atari electronics. And the once-jittery kiss-off “Gun” is nearly unrecognizable, sounding even more deceptively sweet than before.

Stream the three reworked tracks below. More »
