Eminem Unveils Grim Yet Nostalgic ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′ Cover

Eminem returns to his Detroit roots on the cover of The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The artwork uses a photo of his old home on Novara Street where he used to live pre-fame (it was also used on the first Marshall Mathers LP). It’s a rather bleak image but a reminder of how far the rap great has come. The much-anticipated album drops November 5 and features top 10 single “Berzerk”. If the cover is any indication, we’re in from the MC’s grittiest set yet. More »

Mel B Is On The Comeback Trail, Unveils “For Once In My Life” Cover

Could the world be looking at a second bout of Spice-mania? (Probably not but don’t crush my dreams). Hot on the heels of Geri Halliwell‘s surprise comeback announcement, is news that former bandmate Mel B will pip her to the post by dropping a new single and video this month.

Scary Spice will premiere “For Once In My Life” — fingers crossed it’s not a Stevie Wonder cover — on September 18 but unveiled the sultry cover today. Basically, the America’s Got Talent judge wears a butterfly-infested wig. See a picture from the video shoot after the jump. More »

The Killers Announce ‘Direct Hits’ Collection & New Single “Shot At The Night”

Has it seriously been 10 whole years since The Killers dropped their still-absolutely-amazing debut album Hot Fuss? Not exactly — that LP was released in June 2004. Still, the band is using the 10-year-anniversary of their first-ever overseas concert as the catalyst for announcing their upcoming Direct Hits collection, which is out on November 11 (aka Lady Gaga ARTPOP day). It’s a somewhat decent attempt at rounding up the band’s singles, though missing are Sam’s Town‘s “Bones,” Sawdust‘s “Shadowplay,” Day & Age‘s “The World We Live In” and Battle Born‘s “Here With Me” — not to mention all of the holiday RED campaign singles. (And, dammit — “A Great Big Sled” is a classic!) More »

Britney Spears is in the mood for sharing. Earlier today (September 12) she posted the songwriting credits of her new single on Instagram — Will.i.am is back on the scene — and the enduring diva just tweeted the suitability glamorous “Work Bitch” cover art.

It looks like Brit has taken her rumored Vegas stint to heart and has gone full showgirl on us — rocking a sequined leotard with blue feather trim. It’s a bit Cher, a tad Kylie Minogue and a lot of fabulous. See Britney’s tweet after the jump. More »

Yuna Unveils ‘Nocturnal’ Album Cover: See Her Floral-Themed Artwork

Given the release of both the Croods soundtrack duet “Shine Your Way” with Owl City and her springtime Sixth Street EP, it’s been a busy year for Yuna — and she’s not done keeping her fans supplied with fresh material just yet. The 26-year-old Malaysian singer will follow up last year’s self-titled international LP with the 11-track Nocturnal, due out October 29 on Verve.

The LP kicks off with the warm, finger-popping late-summer jam “Falling,” and offers up 10 more pop- and R&B-tinged songs, like “I Wanna Go” (produced by Michael Einziger of Incubus), “Mountains,” “Rescue” and “I Want You Back.”

Hear “Falling” and catch the full Nocturnal tracklist below. More »

Cher Is A Sultry, Blond-Haired Vixen On The Cover Of ‘Closer To The Truth’

Cher could pass for a woman half her age on the glorious cover of new LP Closer To The Truth. It must be all the time she spends in bed tweeting instead of baking in the hot California sun because the 67-year-old looks positively girlish lying seductively in bed.

The enduring diva ups the sexy ante even further by rocking a lace negligee and peroxide-blond wig. (I guess that legendary newspaper weave started to yellow). Talk about the wonders of Photoshop all you like but there’s no deny that the lady still has it. See Cher’s tweet revealing the cover after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea Unveils Super Sexy “Change Your Life” Cover Art

Iggy Azalea is taking no chances with “Change Your Life”. The Aussie femcee previewed the Showgirls/Blade Runner-inspired video last month by posting a couple of pics on Instagram and today (August 14) she jumped on Twitter to share the cover.

It’s a typically sexy shot that finds the “Work” rapper wearing what appears to be a chain-metal bra. The track features mentor T.I. and drops later this month ahead of debut LP The New Classic. After that Iggy flies home to support Beyonce on the Australian leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour. #Winning. More »

Katy Perry’s “Roar” Single Cover: See Her Wild Art

KatyCats of the UK, though you won’t get Katy Perry‘s new single “Roar” until September 8 — a good three weeks after its American release date (August 12) — you’re now at least privy to an iTunes pre-order of the forthcoming first taste of Prism, complete with cover art. (This comes a day after the latest video tease of the Max Martin/Dr. Luke production, which features about a split-second of actual music.)

Perry tweeted out the UK iTunes pre-order link on Thursday (August 8) afternoon, featuring a reveal of straight-up 1987 “Roar” imagery. In it, Katy’s wearing what looks like some lost track jacket from the days when Samantha Fox and Def Leppard were a thing. Not quite sure about the tiger iron-on or the teenage Winona Ryder hair, but, you know — roar. More »

Tamar Braxton Unveil’s Dramatic ‘Love And War’ Cover Art

Tamar Braxton dropped her Love And War cover art today and it’s a typically dramatic affair. Toni’s little sister looks piping hot in a sexy black outfit. Well, what you can see of it peeping out from behind a layer of red. The much-anticipated LP contains the epic title track and breezy summer jam “The One”.

Also expected to make the tracklist is fan favorite “Hot Sugar” and new ballad “Finally”, which the big-lunged diva debuted at her recent LA showcase. On the strength of those songs alone, Tamar’s sophomore effort promises to be well worth a listen. Love And War hits stores September 3. More »
