When the time comes to declare National Rap Day, the date of September 25th will surely be in contention. Today is, after…
In honor of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video being nominated for hundreds of moonmen tonight…
We're about to enter the fourth quarter for music and should be seeing a lot new releases coming out soon. Coldplay, Drake, Florence + the Machine, and Rihanna are all releasing some new cuts, some of which have been included on a very hot Songs of the Week. Last week, Pretty Lights really got it going with their song "Finally Moving". This week, we feature songs by Rihanna, Phantogram, Coldplay, Kanye, Hova, TI, and Metric. Check out which ones made the cut then vote for your favorite after the jump! Get involved. Every vote counts.
2006 was the year of Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and dance-pop songs. If you were putting together a playlist at the time, at least one, if not a combination, of such tracks would’ve been added. Even if you didn’t think Justin Timberlake really brought sexy back, someone at you party probably thought differently. Check out this class's suggested playlist after the jump.
2008 was a tough year for a lot of people as the subprime mortgage crisis from the year before really started taking effect. While most people were upset and depressed, Michael Phelps helped to keep America's spirits high by winning 8 Olympic gold medals in one summer. The world's largest haldron collider is finally completed and used at CERN. On the other side of the world, a series of terrorist attacks effectively shut down the whole city of Mumbai. We also had the death of Heath Ledger and his unbelievable performance in The Dark Knight. Movies weren't the only thing popping off though, as TI would show the world that jail couldn't stop him from being one of the greatest rappers in the game. Check out this class's suggested playlist after the jump.
It doesn’t seem that far away, and musically, not much has changed over the past year. Lady Gaga’s still scoring hits, and La Roux’s “Bulletproof” is an armored tank climbing up the Top 40 charts. From the synths and strong drum beats on every pop track over the past year, could pop and electronic have merged? Sounds like it – until you check out Deadmau5 and Boys Noize. Check out this class's suggested playlist after the jump.
Lady Gaga gets too much credit for merging pop and dance music. This combination can, in fact, be traced back to 2005, in which nearly electro-pop diva went for an ‘80s vibe, and Madonna, Depeche Mode, and New Order revisited their classic sounds. A playlist from five years ago wouldn’t be complete without a synthpop track or dance remix to give that 1980s-but-modern direction. Duran Duran might be dated, but the latest Madonna track? It was the ‘80s without the big hair. Check out this class's suggested playlist after the jump.
Tonight marks the debut of T.I.'s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go, which follows the Grammy award winning rapper as he chips away at 1,000 hours of community service, mentors a group of at-risk teens, promotes his album Paper Trail and prepares to spend the next year of his life behind bars on federal weapons charges.
