Rihanna leads the pack of pop star nominees with seven nominations, including artist of the year (um, what year?!) and song of the year. Justin Timberlake nabbed five nominations and Imagine Dragons got four, and they’ll both be competing against RiRi in the artist of the year category.

Look, we’re in the business of pop music here, and when there’s an awards show, business is good. But, just stahp.
The totally necessary ceremony airs May 1 on NBC. Head below for the full list of nominees. More »
Unfortunately, the execution is a tad cheesy. There are tons of clips of norms talking about love, plus an unintentionally hilarious True Detective-like investigation board. (Sample index card: “Who is she? What is her name?” This is a great starting point. If they answer that, I think they just might crack the case.) But maybe I’m just a cold-hearted cynic.

The two trade lines about a relationship that still has that new car smell, over a soulful, tropical-tinged beat. Like much of The 20/20 Experience, it wraps lyrics about love’s comforting warmth with the equally warm analog tones of the ’70s. The retro sound certainly contrasts with the guys’ boundary-pushing collaborations from over a decade ago.

But before JT’s latest single could be sent to radio, a little trim was in order. Like most songs on both 20/20 LPs, “Not A Bad Thing” suffered from an excessive running time. I know many fans enjoyed Justin’s meandering approach to R&B but, for sufferers of musical ADD like myself, those seemingly endless songs were a form of cruel and unusual punishment.
Happily, a minute was shaved from “Not A Bad Thing” and the song sounds all the better for it. Listen to Justin’s lean, mean and extremely good new single after the jump. More »
