We’ve finally reached the weekend, Idolator readers! The past few days were filled with major music moments, which kicked off with Kanye West dropping the full version of the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “No More Parties In L.A.”

David Bowie‘s Blackstar LP topped the charts for yet another week, Kelly Rowland revealed her fifth album is coming soon and Grimes released her awesome “Kill vs. Maim” music video.  Demi Lovato covered Allure magazine while Jennifer Lopez kicked off her All I Have Las Vegas residency in the most diva-appropriate way!

On Idolator’s end, we premiered AngelGold‘s “No No No” singleTravis Mills‘ “Don’t Need Much” and Benny Benassi‘s “Even If” collaboration, and broke down High School Musical by the numbers for its 10th anniversary.

And of course, our readers spoke their minds on the going-ons in the frantic music world. Read some of the best and shadiest comments below!

:: tony d wasn’t feeling it on David Bowie Impersonates Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop In Unreleased Outtakes: “er…they all sound like David Bowie…just saying’….”

:: WordsWithSam is ready for Ariana’s new LP on Ariana Grande Teases “Be Alright” Song: Listen To Her Snapchat Snippets: “This sounds great. Honestly, Cashmere Cat should produce her entire album. I would play the shit out of that. But her voice lends itself very well to this R&B style production. This should help put Focus in the rear view.”

:: He also shared his thoughts on Linda Perry: Lady Gaga Doesn’t Deserve A Songwriting Credit For “Til It Happens To You”: “Linda Perry is always ripping on someone. She needs to chill out and maybe just respect the fact that a song and film about rape are getting so much praise and attention.”

:: Jay kept it real on Iggy Azalea Has Label Beef, Says Exec “Doesn’t Want To See Her Shine”: “She’s pretty much made a career out of having guests on her songs…I’m not surprised that this is what they would want. I’m sure her label is in panic mode considering the huge backlash she suffered from since late 2014. Labels always want to play it safe at first because sadly, selling records and making money is more important. It’s nice that she wants to back track from the “radio friendly” material and go back to her mixtape roots but let’s be realistic…”radio friendly” is also what brought her to the top. But also, AZILLION should stay a buzz track without a video. It’s not her best work in my opinion.”

:: Lee Yasir felt ‘Ye’s power on Kanye West & Miley Cyrus’ “Black Skinhead” Remix Surfaces: Listen: “This just canged my life for the better”

:: Ice Warrior was a bit icy on Tinashe Teams Up With Juicy J & Mike Will Made It On “Energy”: Listen: “Cannot wait for this album, this sounds like classic Tinashe, but with a more relaxed poppy attitude. Looking forward to it WITHOUT BEING ENDLESSLY TROLLED ABOUT IT *ahem, RiRi…*”

:: NAME NICKNAME had a hilariously fitting GIF to accompany this comment on Rihanna Stars In CBS Promo For Super Bowl 50 And 2016 Grammys: Watch: “Rihanna?… your album….. when?”
