ariana-grande-mockingjay-all-my-love

When the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 track list surfaced online last month, there was one track, titled “Track 5,” that raised eyebrows. It was later revealed that the yet-to-be recorded song was a collaboration between Diplo’s Major Lazer project and Ariana Grande. The soundtrack’s official release date isn’t til next week, but the LP has leaked which gives us our first listen at the much-anticipated track.

All My Love” is edgier than what we’re used to hearing from Miss Grande thanks to its tribal beat. Her beautiful melodic vocals sound fantastic over the electro jungle bassline. What’s most notable about the song is the fact you can actually make out practically every word she’s singing. She’s notoriously known for not enunciating the lyrics. Give the track a listen below.

For those hoping my Pitbull obsession would die soon, you’re out of lucky. It still burns inexplicably bright for Mr. Worldwide. Maybe one day it’ll fade away, but that isn’t today :)

The 33-year-old rapper debuts another track off his forthcoming album, Globalization, in stores November 24. “Time Of Our Lives” reunites Pitbull with Ne-Yo. The two previously collaborated on the 2011 chart-topper “Give Me Everything.”

As you would expect, “Time Of Our Lives” is another party anthem with a killer celebratory hook. The duo dedicate the track to everyone who’s going through tough times. Kind of a change of pace from Pitbull’s usual lyrics of bottle service, downing shots of Fireball and sunny destinations. It’s not groundbreaking but a fun listen. Let loose and check it out below.

Earlier this year, Kelis returned to the music scene with a new album titled Food. The title was inspired from the 35-year-old singer’s time studying at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School. In conjunction with the LP’s release, Kelis aired a special titled Saucy and Sweet for the Cooking Channel. She’s back and serving a tasty dish in the form of a hot new track.

Breach enlists the “Bossy” singer for their new track “The Key,” officially being released on December 15. The UK DJ/producer previously worked with Kelis when they remixed her Food track, “Rumble.” Their new concoction is a house-tinged gem worthy of being played at your next party.

The accompanying visual directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch is equally as precious. Kelis rocks out some 70s disco glamor while reigning supreme at a warehouse where dancers show their ‘Soul Train’ best around her. The choreography beginning at the 1:26 mark is my favorite. Definitely check it out. It’s another winning clip from Breach who previously released their sensationally ‘hairy’ “Jack” video.

You haven’t made it until you get your own category on Jeopardy. The 33-year-old singer accomplished that milestone on the long-running quiz show’s annual Tournament of Champions round. Check that off your bucket list Bey!!!

If you’re a proud card-carrying member of The Hive, you could’ve answered all five questions correctly. The contestants had no problem, with only one exception.

Arthur Chu incorrectly used the wrong preposition in his answer. Afterward, he defended himself on Twitter, saying his answer was grammatically correct. Thems are fighting words, Arthur. Be prepared for the wrath of The Beygency.

Check out the questions below and see how you would’ve fared had you been on the episode. Good luck.

For its first ever Concert For Valor in honor of Veterans Day, HBO put together a star-studded lineup. The likes of Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen and The Black Keys performed in front of 800,000 people at the National Mall.

For me, it was Jennifer Hudson and Jessie J who stole the show. The two teamed up for a killer cover of David Guetta and Sia’s gigantic hit, “Titanium.”Thanks to all the reality singing competitions, we’ve heard covers of this track ad nauseum. With that being said, this is one you have to check out. Both ladies showed off their powerful vocal ranges during the memorable duet.

Their first collaboration, “I Need Your Love,” yielded worldwide success. Wisely, Calvin Harris tapped Ellie Goulding again for another track off his new album Motion. “Outside” could easily pass for a 2.0 version of their previous hit. The EDM track doesn’t sound the same but definitely has a similar vibe. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it as they say.

The accompanying music video just premiered. While the track is officially the Scottish DJ’s, it’s all about Goulding who dominates screen time by a mile. Ellie sings outside a trailer park while the clip tells a story of exes contemplating whether or not breaking up was the wise decision. I’m not sure what the floating motorcycle is supposed to symbolize, but it’s a fine-looking video. Check it out below.

Since it’s release over the weekend, Nicki Minaj’s “Only” lyric video has been on the receiving end of plenty of criticism. The Anti-Defamation League immediately commented on the clip’s imagery, comparing it to that of Nazi propaganda. “Nicki Minaj’s new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture’s exploitation of Nazi symbolism,” the organization explained.

“This video is insensitive to Holocaust survivors and a trivialization of the history of that era,” they continued. “The abuse of Nazi imagery is deeply disturbing and offensive to Jews and all those who can recall the sacrifices Americans and many others had to make as a result of Hitler’s Nazi juggernaut.”

Up until now, the 31-year-old femcee has remained silent. Earlier this morning, she sent a series of Tweets talking about the inspiration and concept of the clip, along with issuing an apology.

“The artist who made the lyric video for “Only” was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called “Metalocalypse” & Sin City. Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish. I didn’t come up w/the concept, but I’m very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I’d never condone Nazism in my art.” – Nicki Minaj via Twitter

The video’s director, Jeff Osborne, doesn’t feel the same way and isn’t remorseful for his work. “First, I’m not apologizing for my work,” he told MySpace, “nor will I dodge the immediate questions. The flags, armbands, and gas mask (and perhaps my use of symmetry?) are all representative of Nazism.” Read the full statement below.

Rodney Jerkins is responsible for some of the biggest hits in the past two decades. “Say My Name” (Destiny’s Child), “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay” (Whitney Houston), “If You Had My Love” (Jennifer Lopez), “Overprotected” (Britney Spears), “When I Grow Up” (Pussycat Dolls) are just a few.

Arguably though, his biggest is the smash “The Boy Is Mine” by Brandy and Monica. The 37-year-old producer plans to remake that smash and a few other of his hits for his 20th anniversary next year. Find out who he has on tap to cover that, along with “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay.”
