Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Soulja Boy To The Black Eyed Peas

This week is mostly about hip-hop and R&B. Yep, a lot of the new releases want to sex you up. Thanks to the new Black Eyed Peas dance floor jams, you’ll want to dry hump strangers; Slim Thug wants to do you right; Flo Rida is a one-note lovah; Soulja Boy is shakin’ it up in suburbia; Jazmin Sullivan sings it like it is; and Miguel is as pretty as his tunes. Chrisette Michele — who just gave Annika her style tips — is going through the sweetest-sounding breakup. And, randomly, girlie Fefe Dobson is back … must be the seven-year itch. And then there’s Steve Wynn and the Russian Futurists holdin’ up the indie rock front—represent! So get those headphones on, and let’s get into the groove, after the jump!

Nicki Minaj Is A Total Badass


Last Tuesday, the baddest lady rapper in the biz, Nicki Minaj, dropped her new record. And Pink Friday has three of my favorite things: pink, Fridays, and sick rhymes. But behind those fabulous rhinestone accessories beats the heart of the best thing to happen to rap since Jay-Z came out of retirement. Yeah, I said it. Last night, I was glued to the bitch-tasy that was the MTV special “My Time Now,” which was all about Nicki’s journey from her hometown in Trinidad to her hustle in the studio. If you’re cable-less or forgot to DVR the magic, you can watch the whole show here, almost commercial-free. Move over pop tarts, nobody does diva quite like a rap mogul. Heck, she’s so badass she’s even made pink gangsta. All hail the new Queen Minaj! Keep reading »

The Warblers Croon Again On “Glee”


When Blaine (Darren Criss) and the Warblers of Dalton Academy doo-wopped Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” it reached number one on the Billboard chart, a “Glee” first. Do we think the same will happen for their performance of Train’s “Hey Soul Sister” this week? Keep reading »

Kanye West On George W. Bush And Taylor Swift

“Everybody said, ‘Oh my God, Kanye, I love you so much. I hated you until you said that. But now I see you’re speaking for me. I always thought you were an a**hole but now you said something that represents me.’ But the whole time, whole time I’m thinking in my mind I was thinking that’s not exactly what I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to word it, but I wrote it, I rode it, just as Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it, that’s the way I rode the waves of the Bush comment.”

Kanye West goes on a rant last night while on stage, performing the songs from his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in New York City. First, he explains that he was a little tough on George W. Bush when he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” And then, he slams Taylor Swift. It’s time to let both these incidents go, dude. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Kanye West To Nicki Minaj

This pre-T-day Tuesday, there’s a whole lot to be thankful for. Not one friggin’ turkey in the bounty that is this week’s new music releases. Sweet potato pie! Basically, Kanye West’s album is beautiful, dark, twisted, rad-onkulous awesomeness, if you listen to the critics; Nicki Minaj’s debut record is the motha-frickin’ lady-rappin’ hawtness; My Chemical Romance is back, and Jersey-er than ever; Ne-Yo, Ke$sha, Lloyd Banks and Robyn want you to get down in da club. Plus, the wild card, Royksopp, will help you sleep it all off. So, if that motherload of jams didn’t convince you to get your headphones on, you need to check your pulse. Let’s get into the groove, after the jump. Keep reading »

Is Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” Really A Perfect Album?

Kanye West is many things — an egomaniac, brilliant, pompous, crazy; an a**hole; a douchebag; an artist; a Grammy winner. Well, now he can add “Perfect Score On Pitchfork” to his resume. The notoriously snotty online music mag gave Kanye’s new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (which dropped yesterday), a perfect 10.0 when they reviewed the record this week. They haven’t given an album a non-reissue album a perfect score since 2002, when Wilco’s Yankee Foxtrot Hotel also garnered a 10. So, is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy really a perfect album? Let’s see what the critics have to say … Keep reading »
