Rising electronic hip-hop trio K Theory recently started their own label (New Trinity Music) and are giving away a new remix — or an original — every Tuesday in 2015 to celebrate! The latest track to be overhauled by the guys is Nelly Furtado’s “Turn off The Light.” A top five…

Nelly Furtado Is Working On New Music With Duke Dumont

With 2014 nearing its end, it’s safe to say there has been less-than-memorable music. But Nelly Furtado has come out of the woodworks to possibly be pop’s saving grace! The Canadian songstress has been in the recording studio working on new music with Duke Dumont. When asked in a recent interview if there are any singers

Nelly Furtado Has “No Regrets”: Listen To The Gorgeous Unreleased Track

Nelly Furtado reminded us 1. that’s she’s still alive and 2. a brilliant pop star when she shared lovely unreleased track “Red Balloons” a couple of weeks ago. The Canadian diva freed another stellar demo from her laptop today (February 26) — unleashing “No Regrets”, most likely another outtake from underrated LP The Spirit Indestructible.

Nelly Furtado Lets Go Of “Red Balloons”: Listen To The Unreleased Track

I miss Nelly Furtado. There’s still a place for the Canadian diva’s distinctive voice and heartfelt lyrics in pop music despite the miserable reception her actually rather great The Spirit Indestructible album received. She’s too talented to simply fade away — as recently surfaced unreleased track “Red Balloons” underlines.

While there’s some debate…

Two Nellys Are Better Than One: Listen To The Duo’s Inspirational Collab “Headphones”

Nelly Furtado failed to set the charts on fire with her hugely underrated Spirit Indestructible album but she’s fighting back with a pair of hip-hop collaborations. The Canadian superstar teamed up with Stack$ on “Getaway” and now features on Nelly’s uplifting “Headphones”. The M.O. highlight finds the similarly named veterans in a hopeful mood.

Got Beef?: 12 Of The Best Non-Rap Diss Songs By Pop Stars

Hip hop has always been a musically competitive sport, with rappers going head-to-head in battles ever since the genre’s birth in the late ’70s. The best diss songs have sparked the most fueled beefs in rap history (Tupac vs. Biggie, Jay Z vs. Nas, Nicki Minaj vs. Lil’ Kim, etc.), but the light is rarely shed on…

Third Album Success Stories: 10 Measuring Sticks For Katy Perry & Lady Gaga

We’ve all heard of the sophomore slump. You know, the dreaded second album that often shows diminishing returns or, in drastic cases, completely unravels an artist’s career. The good news for pop titans Katy Perry and Lady Gaga is that they have already successfully navigated that hurdle. As the dueling divas prepare to release their…

Justin Timberlake’s 7 Best Collaborations: Revisit His Songs With Beyonce, Madonna, Ciara & Others

After a six-year hiatus to pursue a not-completely-horrible acting career, Justin Timberlake dusted off his microphone and picked up exactly where he left off at the end of the FutureSex/LoveSounds era — by bringing innovative yet distinctly retro-tinged R&B back to the airwaves and charts. Producer pal Timbaland might have helped a little. Together they…

Nelly Furtado’s “Bucket List” Video: Watch The Dreamy Clip

Nelly Furtado isn’t giving up on her Spirit Indestructible album — for which she’s released approximately 25 singles in the past two months despite its lackluster (to be generous) chart performance. Admittedly, though, every video has been pretty great! The songs, perhaps, tuneless and disappointing. But the videos have been uniformly fairly arresting, so hey — at least…

Nelly Talks New Album & Collaborations: Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, T.I. & Wiz Khalifa

Nelly has a long and storied track record of teaming up with big artists on his tracks — here’s looking at you, Kelly Rowland, since we may or may not be listening to “Dilemma” at this very moment — but there have been few details on the shape of his upcoming LP, M.O., due out in June. And…

Nelly Furtado’s “Waiting For The Night”: Watch The Flamenco-Glam Video

Oh, man. Sure was a shame about Nelly Furtado’s last album, wasn’t it? Despite her best promotional efforts, The Spirit Indestructible proved, well, destructible on the charts. But Furtado remains indomitable: The Portuguese songbird has just dropped the video for her newest single, “Waiting For The Night,” and it’s a tune! Certainly an improvement on the previous…

Nelly Furtado Performs ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ Tracks For WalMart SoundCheck

Nelly Furtado is coming back with her fifth studio album, which she describes as a “friendly punch in the face.” We’re not entirely sold on that description as an appealing one — a punch is still a punch and it hurts! But given rousing singles like “Parking Lot,” we’re willing to go along for the…

Whatcha Say: LMFAO’s Break, Lady Gaga’s Rap & One Direction’s Video Got Our Readers Talking

This week One Direction’s “Live Like We’re Young” video leaked ahead of schedule, an offbeat rap song by (we think?) Lady Gaga surfaced, LMFAO announced that they’re taking a break and a ton of albums — by artists such as Pink, The Killers, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nelly Furtado and Kreayshawn — were released.

Kanye West Vs. Pink Vs. The Killers Vs. Carly Rae Jepsen: Who Won Release Day?

This past Tuesday (September 18) saw one of the record industry’s biggest release days of 2012. (The record industry is still a thing, last we checked.) Rather than throw all the notable releases into one exhausting run-on sentence, here are the Super Tuesday releases in convenient list form:
