Drop Everything & Watch Beyonce Sing Stevie Wonder Hits

Last night, CBS aired a star-studded tribute to Stevie Wonder. “Songs in the Key of Life—An All-Star Grammy Salute” featured a host of celebs, and in this number, Queen Bey is accompanied by Ed Sheeran and Gary Clark Jr. I’m of the unpopular opinion that parts of this clip (ahem, “Fingertips”) don’t pack as much power as they…

Lennon And Maisy’s Folky Cover Of “Boom Clap” Is Beyond

Lennon and Maisy, the sisters who play Maddie and Daphne on “Nashville”, released a gorgeous cover of Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap,” and maybe it’s just because I’m partial to folk, but it’s basically melting my soul. The fact that the two of them have adorable sister vibes when they perform doesn’t hurt either.

Rihanna’s songs are almost always the business. “We Found Love” still goes, even though it’s like three years old. “Pour It Up” is the perfect thing to belt at the top of your lungs at the club, clutching the arms of your best friend. But her latest, “Four Five Seconds,” hits all the marks. Sing-a-long…

Smooth jazz aficionado would like you to send him a silent thanks the next time you take a sip of an oh-so-delicious Frappuccino.

Listen To Ellie Goulding’s New “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Song

Ellie Goulding’s ballad “Love Me Like You Do” was released on YouTube today, and I’m not really sure how I feel about it. Max Martin produced the song, which was specially written for the “50 Shades of Grey” soundtrack. After that oh-so-sultry version of “Crazy In Love” in the film’s trailer, I was expecting something…

Even T-Swift Herself Is Swooning Over This Mashup Of “Blank Space” & “Style”

Taylor told Twitter she’s obsessed with this cover of her hits by Nashville musicians Louisa Wendorff and Devin Dawson, and I have to agree. The acoustic, soul-baring mashup of two favorites from her “1989” album stirs the kinds of feels that the album’s pop originals barely scratch the surface of. I love it, and I…

It’s Time To Cry: Grandma Receives A Holiday Surprise In This Apple Ad

I want to be mad at Apple because they’re making me feel so many feelings for the sake of pitching laptops or whatever, but this ad is just too sweet to resent. As you watch this granddaughter surprise her grandma with a very special song, you’ll be too caught up in warm fuzzies to be…

It’s been 14 years since D’Angelo has graced us with a new album, but the time has finally come — and so will a lot of you, because Black Messiah is just begging to be banged to. But would we really expect anything less from the guy who brought us “Brown Sugar”? Nope.

Joni Mitchell Holds Onto Joy & Leaves Sorrow Behind

I don’t really want to paint sorrowful stuff, you know? Like, I get that out of my system. I guess what I was trying to say in the writing. You know, like “For The Roses” is really, you know, writing my sorrows. That’s probably the one. “Court and Spark” has got some of it. “Blue” has got

Taylor Swift Will Sing Her Music And Her Music Only

“I’m not going to be one of those artists who walks in [to a room with songwriters] and says, ‘I don’t know, what do you want to write about?’ or one of those things where they say, ‘So what’s going on in your life?,’ and I tell them and then they have to write a…
