Future is streaming his long-awaited LP Honest ahead of its April 22 release, but one song that he didn’t reveal on the official stream was “Benz Friendz (Watchutola),” his collaboration with Andre 3000. Welp, it has now landed on the unforgiving plains of the Internet allowing all to hear the double dose of ATLien behavior. It’s a screed against the trappings of success and the women who are attracted to that sort of peacocking, so it’s fitting that the track starts with what may be a clever callback to Outkast‘s whacked-out kiss-off “Roses.” After the sounds of a car crash, Andre repeats “I told that bitch,” and if you’ll recall in “Roses,” he squealed, “I hope she’s speeding on the way to the club, tryin’ to hurry up to get to some baller or singer or somebody like that, and try to put on her make up in the mirror and crash, crash, craaaash into a ditch.”

Anyway, back to reality. It’s a simple beat with a looped choral chant, which contrasts nicely with all the moving parts the pair throws at us. 3 Stacks is on hook duty, plus he spits a lengthy, broken-in verse and a separate sung-rapped verse. Future multitasks as well, alternating between rapping and robo-reggae crooning.

The great Selena Gomez drought of 2014 is finally over! Today, we learned that she has a new song/video on the way (thanks, Ryan Seacrest) and were treated to gorgeous pics of the Stars Dance diva modeling clothes from her Adidas NEO summer collection. What’s next, a new movie role or TV series?

The 21-year-old’s latest NEO range is cute and casual. In other words, perfect for summer. Selena models shorts, skinny jeans and some killer kicks. She looks like the extremely hot girl-next-door and I think that’s the whole point. The pics of her taking selfies are adorable and she even indulges in some painting.

Selena Gomez Has A Justin Bieber-Referencing Song/Video On The Way According To Ryan Seacrest

Here's a gallery of Selena Gomez's cutest pics. Read More »

Selena Gomez has been unusually quiet on the music front since “Slow Down” was sent to radio in August 2013. The shimmery pop perfection that is Stars Dance never got a third single despite selling well and rumors began to swirl that the 21-year-old was shopping for new management and even a new label. (The former turned out to be true, there’s still no word on the latter).

Given all these developments, fans were happily surprised when Ryan Seacrest revealed that Sel has a new song/video on the way in a recent radio segment about Kim Kardashian‘s wedding. “I saw Selena the other night and she’s got a big new song coming out and a really cool video,” he said. But here’s where it gets really interesting. “The video will get people  talking about whether or not it’s about she and Justin [Bieber]“.

Could this be a belated Stars Dance single or the lead single from Selena’s next LP? Ryan doesn’t mention Justin singing on the song, so it’s probably not their long hoped-for duet. Listen to the radio mogul spill the beans about the diva’s next move after the jump. He starts talking about Sel at the 2:35 minute mark. More »

Canadian singer Kiesza is on course to crash into the top spot on the UK chart this weekend with her ’90s house throwback “Hideaway.” Sure, that gives her certain bragging rights…but the true sign that you’ve made it as a pop star is when your music video gets parodied. You may have already caught the impressive tribute by 11-year-old British girl Sapphire. Now get ready to feast your eyes on 28-year-old BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James in full-on Kiesza drag — skintight jeans, suspenders and, oh yes, flame-red hair — doing a shot-for-shot remake of the “Hideaway” video on the streets of London.

Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora’s “Black Widow” Sounds An Awful Lot Like Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse”: Listen

As if, Iggy!

Iggy Azalea‘s Rita Ora collaboration, “Black Widow,” has hit the Web a few days before the April 22 release of The New Classic, and the first thing that jumped out at us? It sounds an awful lot like “Dark Horse!” Turns out that’s because it was co-written by none other than Katy Perry. The potential single has a similarly snappy, sparse trap beat and the refrain (which is presumably the part KP wrote) follows that song’s formula of a slow-build chorus that never quite bursts.

You know that phenomenon where a guest outraps the song’s primary MC? That’s sort of the case here, with Ora bodying the hook and outshining Iggy’s snarling, bitter verses — even that triple time bit. Hear the song below. More »

This Twitter exchange between Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea would lead one to believe that the ladies are collaborating on something that’s about to drop very soon. But while that’s all up for speculation, we do know a few concrete details: Grande’s new single is called “Problem,” and now she’s confirmed, via a tweet, that she’ll perform the song live at the Radio Disney Music Awards, on April 27. Following that, Ariana tweeted that “Problem” will be made available on iTunes at midnight the same night.

Grande stands to win at the Radio Disney blowout in the Breakout Artist Of The Year and Most Talked About Artist categories. (I know — such a shame she missed out on a nod for Best Song To Rock Out To With Your BFF, because #legitcredibility.) Other confirmed performers set to hit the stage include Becky G, Fifth Harmony and Austin Mahone.

Will Iggy make a surprise cameo during Ariana’s shining moment? Dare to dream, dear Disney kiddies. Until then, check out Grande’s Twitter updates on “Problem” below. More »
