Nas Reveals Inspiration for Upcoming Timbaland-Produced Album

Nas Reveals Inspiration for Upcoming Timbaland-Produced Album

Nas started talking about a follow-up to 2012’s Life Is Good. Last year in an interview with Huffington Post, he even called it the “next chapter” in his career. Now as he continues to progress, more details have been dropped.

This week, in an NPR interview, Nas revealed the list of producers behind this still-untitled album, No I.D., who was behind Life is Good, returns, and Timbaland and Swizz Beatz have both been in the studio with the Illmatic rapper.

However, Nas then went onto explain why he created this release, speaking about how the directors of documentary Time Is Illmatic inspired him. […] Read more »

Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘A Better Tomorrow’ May Be Delayed

Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘A Better Tomorrow’ May Be Delayed

There has been trouble behind the scenes of Wu-Tang Clan’s upcoming release, A Better Tomorrow. Although they’ve gotten press recently for a single-copy album that’ll be sold to the highest bidder, they’ve had A Better Tomorrow in the works for some time.

However, it emerged last year that some members weren’t contributing as much as others or hadn’t even spent time in the studio. Others, as well, expressed they weren’t happy with RZA’s direction, with Raekwon being the latest to do so.

He told Rolling Stone: “The bottom line: I’m not happy with that. I’m not happy with the direction of the music and I’m not happy with how dudes is treating dudes’ business. What are we giving the fans? What are we giving the people that help us be here? If it don’t feel right, I can’t be fake. And I’m not the only one who feels like that. […] Read more »

Avril Lavigne Tries Out Dubstep, Appropriates Japanese Culture With “Hello Kitty” Video

Avril Lavigne Tries Out Dubstep, Appropriates Japanese Culture With “Hello Kitty” Video

If Avril Lavigne was looking to stir up controversy for her recent self-titled album, she certainly did it with track “Hello Kitty.”

The video came out on April 21, and almost immediately, critics went after its appropriation of Japanese culture. While the candy-color look certainly alludes to many J-Pop videos, Lavigne takes a page from Gwen Stefani with a series of Japanese backup dancers, all while using Japanese words in the lyrics.

As well, the song is a departure for the singer, known for a pop-punk sound. With husband Chad Kroeger having a hand in both songwriting and production, “Hello Kitty” has more of an electronic, dubstep-influenced character.[…] Read more »

Beyonce Collaboration With Producer Boots Drops Unexpectedly

Beyonce Collaboration With Producer Boots Drops Unexpectedly

Will not announcing her releases become standard procedure for Beyonce? Based on her last album and recent collaboration, that looks to be the case.

Just as Beyonce came out in 2013 without any announcement or hint through social media, a collaboration between the “Partition” singer and producer Boots surfaced this week. “Dreams” is now on Boots’ Soundcloud page and can be heard here.

Signed to Roc Nation while maintaining a somewhat low profile, Boots explained to Vogue that their collaboration was fairly smooth and straightforward: "I love that the song has me and what I'm doing in my realm and her and what she's doing in hers, and it's so completely opposite but they work incr[…] Read more »

Mariah Carey Album ‘The Art of Letting Go’ May Be Delayed Again

Mariah Carey Album ‘The Art of Letting Go’ May Be Delayed Again

Will Mariah Carey’s long in the works release The Art of Letting Go actually come out? Although it had been pushed back from last summer, which in itself was a delay from March 2013, the May 6 release appears to have been dropped.

PopDust.com found that, in looking at the schedules for Island records and Hits Double Daily, Carey’s album isn’t there. There doesn’t appear to be an explanation, although poor single performance appears to be a factor.

Going back to 2012’s “Triumphant,” the cuts off this release simply haven’t been doing well, save for Miguel collaboration “#Beautiful.” Its follow-up single “The Art of Letting Go,” released through Facebook, didn’t even crack the Hot 100, while latest track “You’re Mine (Eternal)” peaked at No. 88.[…] Read more »

Is Madonna Already Done Recording Her 13th Studio Album?

Is Madonna Already Done Recording Her 13th Studio Album?

Madonna started speaking about her upcoming 13th studio album in an interview with a Canadian newspaper, with Instagram photos about her collaborations following. But could she already be done?

DirectLyrics.com pointed out this possibility yesterday. Apparently, two photographers that she’s worked with over the years, Mert and Marcus, wrote on their Instagram account that they’ve already heard the album. They wrote: “In my room listening to the NEW ALBUM!!!!! Im DYING!!!!!! LET ME LOVE YOU FROM INSIDE OUT ???????? @madonna”

If this is the case, Madonna put this release together in a far shorter time than she has over the past decade.[…] Read more »
