Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases From M.I.A. To Generationals

It’s new tunes Tuesday! Yay! And even though this week is light on the new music, it’s more like lite. Seriously, this week, the fat has been cut and the three releases I bring you are tasty! First off, M.I.A. has just released a mix tape called Vickileekx in support of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s recent trouble with the law. You can download it for free! Despite which side of the debate you’re on, free M.I.A tracks are something we can all support. Yes? No? Well, anyway, Brooklyn-based bombshell Class Actress and New Orleans’ hot dude duo Generationals also both drop new albums today. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

Willow Smith Might Cover “Parents Just Don’t Understand”


I made an amazing discovery the other day regarding Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s kids. Willow = Will. Jaden = Jada. Cute! (What, you already figured that out? Aren’t you smart!) Well, apparently Willow does really take after her papa, because she is considering covering his classic song, “Parents Just Don’t Understand.” She says, “There’s a possibility that I will [cover it]. It’s a really great song.” I, for one, hope she does it. I like the meta-ness of it all. [EW] Keep reading »

Just Leaked: Justin Timberlake’s “Take You Down”


Justin Timberlake, who fancies himself an actor now, has recorded a new track and it’s leaked onto the internet. Above, a possibly unfinished “Take You Down.” Could that be a reference to his desire to win an Oscar this year for his role in “The Social Network”? (Fat chance of that happening.) Even though I am a diehard JT fan, I have to say if this is the best he can do after a few years away from the studio, then, yeah, I agree with him that he’s “not ready to record a new album.” Weak sauce. Your acting dreams have made you soft, Justin. [MTV] Keep reading »

Twilight Zone Music News: Kanye Stars In Kim Kardashian’s Video, Kate Moss Records An Album

Today’s music news seems to be all sorts of backwards. First off, we told you in November that Kim Kardashian was recording an album with The-Dream. And now we hear that she is making a video directed by Hype Williams. The mega famous video director spent hours on a closed set with Kim, and her bud Kanye West showed up to co-star. Seem like that should be the other way around, no? [TMZ]

Also surprising, Kate Moss is making an album too! Keep reading »

Charlie Williams Will Have You Saying “Bieber, Who?”

Ladies, prepare to have your heart melted. There’s a new teen crooner in Tinseltown, Charlie Williams, and he sings as pretty as he looks. Plus, he can play drums, beat box, and is about to get his pilot’s license. Clearly, this 16-year-old dude doesn’t need a swagger coach—he’s got the awesome thing down. If you wanna lose yourself in a moment, check out his cover of Bette Midler’s “The Rose,” after the jump. It’ll be on his sophomore record, Dreams Come True, which is due out on Valentine’s Day. Aw!

Alicia Keys’ Song For Her Baby Is So Sweet

This is the only case I can think of where a singer croons to a “baby” in a song and is actually talking to a human infant. Alicia Keys has released this new tune, also featuring Eve, for her newborn baby, Egypt Daoud Dean. It’s called “Speechless,” and has me a little teary eyed and wistful this morning. “Ain’t no words to describe the way that I’m feeling when I look at you,” Alicia sings. “I’m just speechless, baby, don’t know what to say.” Sweet.
