madonna-rebel-heart-track-listing

Madonna fell victim to major leakage problems weeks ago, forcing her label to move up the release date of her 13th studio album. With so many of her demos surfacing online, many wondered which, if any of them, would make the cut. The wait is over.

The official track list has been unveiled. Rebel Heart will include 19 tracks featuring some guest vocals from Nicki Minaj, NAS and Mike Tyson. Yup, you read that right. The former boxing champ pops up on the track “Iconic” with Chance The Rapper. Check out the other tracks to make the final cut below.

Frank Ocean Pays Tribute To Aaliyah With Cover

In: Donovan, Music

Aaliyah would’ve celebrated her 36th birthday last week on January 16. “At Your Best (You Are Love)” was originally recorded by The Isley Brothers in the 1970s. Aaliyah then covered it for her debut album, releasing it as her second single. Though it’s not an Aaliyah original, it’s safe to assume Frank Ocean recorded the track as a tribute to the late R&B singer given it’s proximity to her birthday.

Ocean’s take on the soulful ballad, which he titled “You Are Luhh” on tumbler, is absolutely divine. His buttery falsetto is pure money as he emotionally belts out some of the lyrics. Hopefully, Frank is prepping his sophomore album. I’m craving more new music after hearing this beautiful rendition. Give it a listen below.

Giorgio Moroder is a legendary producer credited with pioneering synth disco and electronic dance music and best known for his collaborations with Donna Summer. This year, the 74-year-old Italian producer releases his first LP in over 30 years and has enlisted an impressive roster of talent to provide vocals. Some of the talent involved include Sia, Charli XCX, Britney Spears, Foxes, Mikky Ekko and Kylie Minogue.

Speaking of the latter, “Right Here, Right Now” featuring the Aussie diva has surfaced. Not surprisingly, it’s beyond sick. Love the vintage disco vibe. Dare I say it’s better than anything featured on her previous album, Kiss Me Once. Don’t take my word for it, give it a listen below. Can’t wait for the accompanying video to drop.

2015-oscar-best-original-song-noms

After their big win at the 72nd Golden Globes, it’s pretty safe to say that John Legend and Common are headed to Oscar glory. Given that Selma was practically snubbed in a few major categories including Best Actor and Best Director, honoring them in this category is a nice consolation prize.

Both Lana Del Rey and Lorde who earned Golden Globes nominations failed to pick up Oscar nods. Taking their place are Adam Levine and surprisingly Rita Ora. Check out all the nominated original songs below and weigh in on which one should win.

Remember Natasha Bedingfield? She was sorta the ‘thinking man’s Britney’ during the early 2000s. A blond pop princess but who wrote her own lyrics. She had a string of hits which included “These Words,” “Pocketful of Sunshine” and of course “Unwritten” which became the theme song for The Hills. The 33-year-old is back and for a cause.

Bedingfield’s comeback single “Hope” is a motivational track that is dedicated to women suffering from mental illness. 20 percent of proceeds go towards the Hope & Grace initiative.

“They asked me to write a song for their charity,” Bedingfield explained last week. “I was so inspired because good mental health is such an important thing for women to focus on. Us women need to stick together, to look after each other. We all know how to smile so well, but can often be so good at hiding the painful moments.”

In addition to this charity single, Natasha is working on her fourth studio album which she plans on releasing later this year. Give her latest visual a view below.

nicole-scherzinger-covers-sam-smith

Nicole Scherzinger released her latest album, Big Fat Lie, in England last year. “Your Love” was a Top 10 hit while “Run” and “On The Rocks” failed to crack the Top 40 in the UK. The 36-year-old former Pussycat Doll has now shifted focus across the pond in anticipation of the LP’s US release.

Scherzy recently covered one of Sam Smith‘s hits exclusively for Perez Hilton. I’m always down for a song cover, especially when done right. Given her history of executing previous covers with ease I was expecting so much from this.

In my opinion, Nicole tries too hard to make “I’m Not The Only One” her own, adding too much melisma. Girlfriend drags out the lyrics for far too long. Don’t take my word for it. Check out her cover below and weigh in afterward.

G.R.L. is forging ahead as a quartet after Simone Battle committed suicide last year. The girl group pays tribute to their fallen comrade on a touching emotional new song titled “Lighthouse.”

“We rehearsed the other day without her, and it’s just weird. But she was so passionate about singing and this group, and I feel like we’re keeping her memory alive by being together,” Emmalyn, 22, told People. “But right now we’re focused on the song and the positive message overall, about being together in hard times. We’re taking everything else one day at a time.”

For the accompanying visual, the girls sing in a room filled with light bulbs while images of Battle’s childhood and times with G.R.L. are shown. I’m glad G.R.L. is continuing to make music. I’m a fan and wish them much success. Hopefully, they keep it as a quartet and don’t try to replace Battle.

“We learned so much from her,” Lauren, 25, continued. “In the video you can see her passion for performance, and you can see her strumming along to the music in the beginning. It’s us showing that she’s still part of the group. She’ll always be part of this group.”

Given how they lost Simone, the remaining girls are making it their mission to bring the topic of depression out in the open. They are partnering with Give An Hour- an organization that provides support and awareness for mental health issues. Check out the fitting clip below.

Mariah Carey Officially Announces Las Vegas Residency

Move over Britney, there’s a new diva heading to Las Vegas. After weeks of speculation, Mariah Carey confirmed the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday.

“I ‘m going to do my first ever residency in Vegas at Caesars. This is a special event for me,” Mariah said. “And again, I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this cause I’m gonna be performing, which was kind of inspired by my album Number 1’s, and this is now the updated version with 18 of them.”

The 44-year-old elusive chanteuse will call Caesar’s Palace her home. She’ll hold down the fort while Celine Dion takes an extended hiatus to take care of family health issues. Once tickets go on sale, I’ll definitely be looking into booking a trip to Sin City.

No word on what Caesars shelled out, but it’s safe to assume it’ll top Spears. I’ll definitely share it when I learn her salary. Watch Mimi’s huge announcement below.
