Beyonce And Jay Z Are Allegedly Working On A Joint Album


Beyonce and Jay Z are allegedly working on a joint LP. Yes, a whole album of collaborations like “Crazy In Love”, “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” and my current favorite “Part II (On The Run)”. The world isn’t ready! Dash Radio’s DJ Skee reported the news this afternoon (September 16) but didn’t cite his source, so it’s probably best to take the revelation with a grain of salt.

There is some precedent for it, however. Hov recorded Watch The Throne with Kanye West and Bey has been hinting at releasing more new music. She was rumored to be working on a sequel to her game-changing visual album but a joint project could be less stressful and take the weight of expectation off her shoulders. (Topping Beyonce is going to be tough). Listen to DJ Skee’s interview after the jump. More »

Must Hear: Made In Heights’ New Single “Ghosts” Is Synth-Pop Perfection


If you missed Made In Heights the first time around (they released an album in 2012), there’s still time to get on board before they explode with their sophomore set. And the LA-based duo will do just that if gorgeous new single “Ghosts” is any indication of what they have up their collective sleeve. Make no mistake. This is one of the prettiest pieces of electronica to surface thus far in 2014.

“When all the ghosts are singing, taking my tears and filling their cups up,” sing-whispers vocalist Kelsey Bulkin over Sabzi‘s cascading synths in the song’s ever-so-subtle chorus. That gives you some idea of the song’s quirky lyrical content but probably doesn’t do justice to the whimsical production. Think of this as the complicated, stoner cousin of Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be”. Listen after the jump. More »

Jennifer Lopez And Iggy Azalea’s “Booty” Gets A Country Club Martini Crew Remix: Listen


Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea have fans salivating over the prospect of their eye-popping “Booty” video (the preview promises a sophisticated soft-porn extravaganza) but here’s a little something to quench your Jiggy — get it? — thirst while we wait for it to drop. The twerk-inducing floorfiller has now been remixed by the always-awesome Country Club Martini Crew.

The Brazilian DJ (it’s just one dude) has a knack of overhauling pop songs for the dancefloor without destroying the original’s mainstream appeal and he does it again with “Booty”. Diplo‘s thunderous beats remain largely untouched — everything has just been padded out with house-friendly synths. J Lo and Iggy fans will, no doubt, be dropping it low to this version in the very near future. Listen after the jump. More »

LIGHTS’ ‘Little Machines’: Listen To The Album

Lights Little Machines 600 x 600

In just one week, Canadian synth-pop singer-songwriter LIGHTS will offer up new album Little Machines (on September 23). Ahead of that, the studio release, her third, is streaming in full courtesy of the New York Times. Quiet opening track “Portal” kicks the off on a mellow note, and the ride carries on through an impressive array of dance, electro and straight-up pop tunes. Don’t miss standouts “Same Sea,” “Speeding” and “How We Do It.”

Dare we say it, LIGHTS might have really outdone herself here — words we don’t toss around lightly, considering her 2009 debut The Listening is one of the finest albums to come out of the previous decade. More »

Cher Loves Lady Gaga’s Jazz Album, Lady Gaga Thinks Cher Has Class: See Their Twitter Love-In


Remember when Lady Gaga and Cher recorded “The Greatest Thing” (it actually lived up to its title!) for the legendary diva’s Closer To The Truth LP but then it got ditched at the last minute because Mother Monster wasn’t happy with the fact that it sounded like the best song never to win Eurovision? Well, that mess is all in the past! The gay icons have made up and showed a lot of love for each other on Twitter yesterday (September 15).

It turns out someone sent Cher a copy of Lady Gaga’s jazz LP with Tony Bennett and she really liked what she heard. “SO F-ING PROUD OF U #GAGA HEARD (&SAW) AMAZING CD COLAB #CheekToCheek W/4 EVER HIP #TONYBENNETT BABE, UR CHANNELING JAZZ GREATS & KIL-N-ME,” the “Woman’s World” singer tweeted. (If you’re unfamiliar with Cher-speak that translates as “I enjoyed your album”). The ARTPOP pioneer was quick to return the love and even demanded her fans trend #MonstersLoveCher.

Beyonce Quashes Pregnancy Rumors By Showing Off Her Bangin’ Bikini Body: 4 Pics


The internet exploded with talk that Beyonce was pregnant with a second child when Jay Z allegedly dropped the bombshell during an On The Run tour stop in Paris, France over the weekend. He was reported as switching the lyrics of Magna Carta Holy Grail interlude “Beach Is Better” from “I replace it with another one” to “cause she’s pregnant with another one”. (The audio isn’t exactly convincing).

In true Bey style, she refuted the baby talk not by holding a press conference or jumping on Twitter but by showing off her toned tummy in a series of scorching hot Tumblr posts. The 33-year-old rocked a tiny string bikini (and gold leaf tattoos) on her luxury yacht somewhere off the coast of France. It goes without saying that she looked completely and utterly amazing. See the sexy pics after the jump. More »

Nicole Scherzinger Reveals Tracklisting For Upcoming Album Via Instagram


Get ready for the new era to begin, Killer Lovers: Nicole Scherzinger has just unveiled the tracklisting for her brand new LP.

It’s surely been a long and bumpy ride for the former Pussycat Doll-turned-solo starlet following the release of 2011 debut Killer Love, from her 2013 one-off “Boomerang” to her Summer ’14 breezy Top 10 smash “Your Love” to the oddly tepid “On The Rocks.” And then, out of nowhere, a powerful ballad called “Run” surfaced on French radio over the weekend. But what does it all add up to? A new album!

Today, the songstress revealed the song titles from her follow-up album on Instagram with the help of a fun crossword puzzle for fans. So, what hot new jamz do we have to look forward to? Find out after the jump. More »
