Turns out that song Taylor Swift
wrote for Justin Bieber
‘s upcoming album won’t be the only collab involving the recent ACM Award winner
you’ll be hearing about today, as her pair-up with B.o.B.
for his Strange Clouds
LP has also surfaced. “Both Of Us” opens with a plucky guitar and Taylor singing, “I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us.” Then a beat kicks in and Bobby Ray launches into his life-lesson rap. It’s an uplifting offering that’s a rarity these days, in that the song opts for dramatic pacing rather than trendy dance beats. Listen below.

producer Ryan Tedder
, that announced Taylor Swift
pair-up and — wait for it — a song called “Bombs Away” featuring Shawshank Redemption

Fresh off the premiere of split-personality Strange Clouds
jam “Where Are You (B.o.B Vs. Bobby Ray)”
, B.o.B and a beautiful, dark-haired lady friend travel the globe in the jet-setting video for single “So Good”

Ahead of upcoming LP Strange Clouds
(out May 1), B.o.B has released a B.o.B-less promo video for new tune “Where Are You (B.o.B Vs. Bobby Ray)”. The piano-laced jam is somewhat in the Eminem “Stan” vein, as it’s from the perspective of three different people: one an old friend who laments how much the rapper has changed since he became famous; one a longtime fan who also rakes the MC over the coals for not sticking to his roots; and the third is B.o.B himself. Listen below.
We’ve just received the weather forecast for May 1, and it looks to be: strange, with a chance of telekinesis. Stripper-loving rapper B.o.B has unveiled the covert art for his LP Strange Clouds, and there is indeed something unusual about the cloud featured here — for one, it’s indoors, and for another, the “So Good” singer seems to have conjured it up using only his mind. Neat trick! See the full-sized artwork after the jump. More »

If you tried to visit a number of websites today and were unable to view their content, don’t be alarmed: it’s due to the protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) bills, which were created to stop online piracy and protect copyright owners, but could allow the government to censor practically anything on the Internet. You’d think musicians would be all for protecting their music from piracy, but artists, such as B.o.B, Kreashawyn, OK Go and more, have made it clear that this bill, if passed, will do more harm than good.

“Why you all in my face, you ain’t even in my circle, dawg, you ain’t even in my loop,” B.o.B brags in his E.P.I.C.
mixtape track “How Bout Dat”, which features Future and Trae Da Truth. You know who is
in the “Strange Clouds”
hit-maker’s circle? A pack of strippers, that’s who. The ATL MC lays with, throws cash at and dances with these fine young ladies in the club in his video for the track. (Guess he upgraded from the swimming pool
, which probably started to make him wrinkle like a prune?) Watch B.o.B’s latest masterpiece below, music lovers!
