The Strokes are doing their best to get everyone thinking it’s 2004 again, releasing a new album in April and two singles “Under Cover of Darkness” and “Taken for a Fool.” A video for the latter of these two premiered on July 8, and the track’s stripped down sound, one reminiscent of 1970s rock and early Cure, and equally bare-bones basic video reflect the faux-retro uncertainty of rock in the early aughts. With such a dated sound, attempting to sound old while being unintentionally a few years behind music trends, are The Strokes still relevant? Watch the video for “Taken for a Fool” below and determine that yourself:[…] Read more »
Jay-Z, sans Kanye West, gave a preview of Watch the Throne to a select group of people – a handful of music journalists and two fans – at the Mercer Hotel in New York on July 7. The rapper started off the evening playing songs, 11 initially and three later on in the evening, from a laptop and then opened a conversation – not an interview – to those in attendance. To prevent lyrics being leaked, Jay-Z prohibited live tweeting during the event.
Although KOVideo.net was not in attendance, we’ve gathered key pieces of information about from Watch the Throne from those who were.[…] Read more »
Not even a month after Dexter Isaac claimed that he shot Tupac, another man has come forward to confess his part in the killing of a rapper, this time in the case of slain hip-hop legend, Notorious BIG.
Clayton Hill, an imprisoned former Nation of Islam member serving time for identity theft and tax fraud, claims that he received orders from fellow NOI member Dawoud Muhammad in May of 1997 to dispose of the handgun allegedly used to kill the rapper.
"[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of Notorious BIG]," Hill wrote in an email to HipHopDX. "He disclosed that he was the shooter ... because he [Muhammad] was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so." Muhammad allegedly claimed he "made twenty-five Gs", or $25,000, from the killing.”[…] Read more »
Despite its chart success, especially post-Glastonbury Festival, Beyoncé’s latest album 4 has been deemed a flop. Could B’s most recent single “The Best Thing I Never Had” be the song that changes the album’s sales figures?
That all depends, of course, on the Beyoncé fans want to hear: the club-friendly singer of “Crazy in Love” or the belter of ballads like “Irreplaceable.” “The Best Thing” falls into the latter category. It’s a song for those who respect the former Destiny’s Child singer for her pipes; it’s not, however, a track that’s remix-friendly, adept for the dance floor, or destined to be a summer hit.[…] Read more »
Australian singer songwriter, Vanessa Amorosi, has just released the single Gossip from her forthcoming new studio album V which is expected out this November. "Gossip" is an electro-pop track with a great dance club beat that is bound to rock the floor.
Talking about the track, Vanessa said, "I wanted to get some positive messages out there. I wanted people to connect and relate with me through my life experiences." Coupled with the release of the song is the music video which has been filmed in the historic Labassa Mansion in Melbourne (Australia) under the services of acclaimed director Stuart Gosling. The award winning video for "Mr Mysterious" comes from the Gosling stable, as do clips for Nelly Furtado, Good Charlotte and Tom Jones.[…] Read more »
Grammy Award winning singer songwriter, Kelly Rowland, is about to release her third highly-anticipated solo album Here I Am. Already the charts are buzzing with the pre-released single Motivation (featuring Lil Wayne), with the track doing well on the airwaves and not showing any signs of slowing down. It is sitting at the number one position at Urban Radio, where it has been for the last seven weeks.
This smash hit is Kelly Rowland's first number one single as a solo artist, even though she achieved incredible success during her years with Destiny's Child, when they produced four number one hits in the US and sold over 60 million records worldwide. […] Read more »
