Nick Cannon will drop his first album in 11 years on April 1. Titled White People Party Music, the upbeat set was inspired by the comedian’s side-gig as a DJ.

Kelis’ lead Food single “Jerk Ribs” premiered online nearly a year ago, and was finally made available for download on iTunes last week. Now the track has cover art to go along with it — Kelis in triplicate! — as well as a club-ready remix by Ben Pearce. You may recall Ben’s UK hit “What… More »
News that Iggy Azalea’s much anticipated/delayed debut LP The New Classic now has a concrete release date (April 14) was a relief for long-suffering fans and now the Aussie femcee has given Azaleans another reason to celebrate.

It’s been a wait for new music from Kelis after the release of Flesh Tone in 2010, give or take the single release of Calvin Harris’ “Bounce” three years back and the surfacing online of “Jerk Ribs” last spring.

Hold on to your wigs, pop divas. Shakira just unveiled the cover of her self-titled new album and she means business — strumming a guitar in a sexy black outfit with her trademark bed hair flowing like strands of spun gold. It’s definitely one of the Colombian goddess’ hottest looks and gives Kylie Minogue’s lovely… More »
Kylie Minogue’s much-anticipated new album finally has a name. Her 12th opus is called Kiss Me Once and has a suitably flirtatious cover.

So, technically, Cyndi Lauper’s debut solo LP She’s So Unusual was released in October 1983, and this would then be the year of its 31st anniversary — but who’s counting, anyway? Sony’s Legacy Recordings division will issue She’s So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration on April 1 as a two-disc commemoration of current Grammy nominee… More »
Paloma Faith has always taken a more-is-more approach to album covers — she held doves against a ring of roses on her debut and floated with parrots for Fall To Grace — but she has really outdone herself with the artwork for third LP A Perfect Contradiction.

It’s hard to believe that Sara Bareilles released “Brave” way back in April 2013. Nine months have passed and the feel-good lead single from Grammy nominated LP The Blessed Unrest is still unavoidable on radio and holding steady on the Billboard Hot 100. This week it actually climbed four spots to number 26. More »

Shakira’s much-anticipated duet with Rihanna was officially confirmed this morning (January 6) on Twitter after months of speculation and an amusing anecdote from Pitbull.

The duo also unveiled their album cover and it’s fair to say they both… More »

Justin Bieber got everyone talking with his pulse-raising, panty-dropping R. Kelly collaboration “PYD” (or “Put You Down”). The woozy sex jam finds the teen in a distinctly horny mood — helpfully suggesting lots of places he’d like to do it with his lady including a countertop, the dining room table and on a plane. (You get… More »
R. Kelly’s Black Panties will soundtrack a million one-night stands starting December 10. That’s the goal at least. From the eye-popping covers (there are two) to the steamy tracklist, the R&B crooner makes it very clear that he’s only interested in one thing. (And it isn’t your personality).
Let’s start with the artwork. The deluxe versio… More »
