TLC proved they “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” earlier this week when they launched a Kickstarter campaign asking their fans to fund the recording of their final album. The remaining members of the girl group offered up dance lessons, a workout, access to a listening party and lots of signed paraphernalia to lure in donations.

“While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don’t often give artists complete control of their own music. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU.” – TLC

As of right now, the girls have amassed over $110,000 in donations, almost reaching their goal of $150,000. With 28 days left in the campaign, they should have no problem meeting, if not, exceeding that number. About $5,000 came from Miss “Roar” herself.

Katy Perry, according to TMZ, shelled out money for the project. Who knew she was such a fan? Based on that amount, Perry either gets a onesie or a night with the girls for an epic slumber party. Hopefully, it’s the latter. Can you just imagine the Instagram selfies from that night of pillow talk?

Since Perry obviously loves their music, hopefully a collaboration can happen. Fingers crossed. If you want an idea of what that might sound like, check out this fan-made TLC-Katy Perry mashup below from a couple of years ago.

Billboard Highlights The 10 Biggest Songs Of 2014

In: Donovan, Music
billboard-2014-year-end-list

Billboard magazine revealed their year end lists for their numerous charts this week. Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” gets the honor of being named the most popular song of 2014 by the publication. It tops their prestigious Hot 100 year end list.

Joining him in the top tier are Katy Perry, Iggy Azalea, OneRepublic, Sam Smith, Taylor Swift, John Legend and Ariana Grande. Probably the most shocking entry is that of Magic!. No one could’ve ever predicted a reggae jam from a white Canadian group would’ve made such an impact. Sadly, my boy Pitbull just missed the list at No. 11 with his anthem, “Timber.”

Check out the magazine’s Top 10 video countdown below which gives some fun facts about each track to make the cut. Be sure to weigh in afterward if you think Pharrell’s “Happy” deserves the crown.

At the halfway point of the year, Katy Perry led the pack with the most played music video of 2014. As of November 30, 2014 Katy-patra’s “Dark Horse” clip has been eclipsed. Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX with their Clueless homage passed Perry to take the year end title.

According to VEVO, the “Fancy” clip pulled in more than 380 million views, 140 million of which were in the US alone. The Aussie femcee also makes another appearance on the Top 10 list thanks to her collaboration with Ariana Grande on “Problem.” Overall, the ladies dominated the list by taking the top seven slots. The highest charting man was Rich Gang with “Lifestyle.” Props to Sam Smith for making the cut with his relatively simple clip for his sensational ballad “Stay With Me.”

Check out how Taylor Swift’s shaking, Meghan Trainor and Nicki Minaj butt anthologies fared on the chart below.

dj-earworm-2014-mashup

One of the things I look most forward to at this time of year is DJ Earworm’s annual music video, mashing up the calendar year’s 25 biggest Billboard hits. With the decline of EDM on the Hot 100 chart, Earworm (real name: Jordan Roseman) tells Billboard he went with a more mellower approach.

“The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” says Earworm of the 25 songs he selected for this year’s song. “The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo. And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with. It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”

It truly is remarkable how he weaves ballads like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and John Legend’s “All Of Me” with hip-hop anthems like Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” and Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” along with dance tracks DJ Snake’s “Turn Down For What” and Pitbull’s “Timber.” Check out the DJ/Producer’s latest masterpiece below, along with a list of which tracks made the cut.

It wasn’t exactly the best kept secret in town, but the cat is officially now out of the proverbial bag. Katy Perry is putting on the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX. The 30-year-old singer was an early frontrunner for the gig.

Though early reports suggested the NFL was hoping to score a cut of the performer’s post-Bowl revenue, it appears Perry won’t be paying to play at the most-watched TV event of the year. Bravo for Katy for not caving in. It’s not like the league is hurting for money.

Now that everything is official, Perry is already in promotional mode. A video clip hyping up the performance has been released. Check it out below.

As she infamously sang previously, “A diva is a female version of a hustler,” and hustle she did. Beyonce worked her ass off last year and it paid off. She tops Forbes annual list of the Top Earning Women In Music. She takes over Madonna who earned Forbes’ honor last year with $125 million. Surprisingly, Madge didn’t make the Top 10 cut on this year’s list.

With Queen Bey’s multi-platinum surprise album, successful solo and joint tour which consisted of 95 concerts, along with lucrative endorsement deals with H&M and Pepsi, she raked in a whopping $115 million over the past 12 months. Her most successful year to date. The 33-year-old mogul generated almost doubled what the runner-up earned. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.
