Beyonce and Bruno Mars Join Coldplay For Super Bowl Halftime Show

(Radio.com) Coldplay began this year's Halftime show in broad daylight, with "Viva la Vida," joined by a string section of kids; from there they were joined by a marching band for Paradise, which quickly went into their recent hit "Adventure of a Lifetime."

Then it was guest star time: Mark Ronson behind the turntables announced that they would go into "Uptown Funk" and Bruno Mars, his dancers and band took over for about a minute; when they said "Stop! Wait a minute!" it was Bey Time." She launched into her brand new song "Formation" - so brand new, it was released yesterday. The turned into a mashup between Bey and Bruno, and then towards the end, Chris Martin joined them for a bit of "Uptown Funk."

Then, the guests left as Coldplay went as Coldplay started "Up and Up," as medley that also dropped a few other songs by past Halftime performers. As the performance ended, a commercial announced Beyonce's upcoming tour, which will surely be one of the can't-miss outings of 2016. Read more here.

Deftones Poke Fun At Kanye West

(Radio.com) Following the announcement of their first new music since their 2012 album Koi No Yokan, Deftones shared the tracklist and cover art for their upcoming album Gore.

They also took the opportunity to poke fun of Kanye West in their press release. Just how epic will this new album be? Chino Moreno referenced Kanye's recent claims about Waves' greatness, stating, "Out of respect for Pac, Big, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, Gore is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest, just one of" in the press release.

Meanwhile, Gore's artwork certainly juxtaposes the essence of the album's name. It features a flamingo flock in flight (say that five times fast). Gore drops April 8. Check out the tracklist here.

Ramones Featured In Super Bowl Ad

(Radio.com) It's certainly not the first time the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop" has been used in a TV commercial. But what makes this particular use of the song is that, surprisingly, it's the soundtrack to GoPro's first-ever Super Bowl ad.

With its infectious chant-style "Hey ho, let's go" intro, the 40 year-old punk rock anthem was apparently chosen not by a big marketing firm because it fit the target demographics, but by the young action sports enthusiasts at GoPro. The San Mateo, CA camera maker explained the story behind their commercial like this:

The only thing at the Super Bowl nearly as anticipated as the action on the field is the commercial time in between. Some brands look to inspire the consumer while others look to extend their demographic, and others still just look to introduce themselves to the world. Whatever the case may be, marketing teams work tirelessly to create something that will grab the attention of the Super Bowl viewers. Read more here.

Along with that announcement, the duo also promised new music was on its way. No word yet on when that will be, but since they're touring through October it seems likely to be sometime in spring or summer. See the post here.

Adele Shares Photo Of When She Was Young

(Radio.com) Adele released the next single from her album 25. Titled "When We Were Young," the brooding ballad looks to the past for inspiration, and waxes poetic about someone Adele knew when she was younger.

Set to a piano that lightly plays melody behind Adele's voice-the song's real star power-she slowly and almost melancholically pines during the verses only to let loose during the chorus. "You look like a movie/ You sound like a song/ My god this reminds me/ Of when we were young," she sings.

To make things even better, the artwork Adele released with the track is totes adorbs. She shared a photo on Instagram of when she was younger. Check out the beaming little Adele and listen to "When We Were Young" here.

Nick Jonas Talks Lady Gaga Inspiration

(Radio.com) Nick Jonas has his hands in all mediums of entertainment - music, movies, and television. He recently spoke to Billboard about his busy schedule, his new breakout film Goat, his forthcoming second solo project, and how Lady Gaga inspires him.

Goat is a look at fraternity hazing in college. The film won rave reviews at Sundance this January and is a departure for the pop star due to some graphic scenes in the film. Goat also examines relationships between men and their masculinity, and that's what Jonas said made him want to be apart of the film. "In Goat, the key in the relationship is that both brothers admire something in the other. Even if Brett, my character, can't be as loving as he is with Brad at the beginning of the film around his fraternity, that love is there," Jonas says.

Although he's been working on movies and television shows like FOX's Scream Queens and Audience Network's Kingdom, he still has time for music. "I've been really inspired by Lady Gaga and the strides she has made in the acting space," he offered. "I've been shooting [the third season of] Kingdom for a couple of months, and then the focus shifts to music for the summer - the new record, new single and tour." Read more here.

Rihanna To Perform At The Grammy Awards

(Radio.com) Rihanna will be among those performing at the 2016 GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 15. Both The GRAMMYs and Rihanna made the announcement via Twitter Friday (Feb. 5).

Rihanna had been previously tapped to take part in a tribute to Lionel Richie at the awards ceremony, but this new announcement will involve a separate performance. It seems fair to speculate that Rihanna will perform her single "Work" off her new album ANTI. Could it be that Drake will join?

In addition to a duet from Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt, Lady Gaga will perform a tribute to David Bowie at the GRAMMYs. Other artists include Justin Bieber, Diplo and Skrillex performing their nominated "Where Are U Now," and Chris Stapleton honoring the late B. B. King with Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt. Ellie Goulding, Pitbull, Tori Kelly and more have also been tapped to perform.

Drake Accepts Challenge From NBA Legend Reggie Miller

(Radio.com) It seems like everyone with a pulse wants to challenge Drake these days. This time it's former NBA player, Reggie Miller. But he's not throwing lyrical darts at Drake; instead, it's actually ping pong balls.

After apparently hearing that Drake is a "master ping pong player", Miller made Drake an offer he couldn't refuse: he challenged him to a match. Drake, after responding that, "Master is a bit of a stretch," graciously accepted the basketball legend's offer.

To recap, Drake admitted to not being the best at something. Keep in mind, this is guy who claimed "Last name 'ever,' first name 'greatest'" in a Sprite commercial - before he released his debut album.

Drake will be in Toronto for the NBA All-Star Festivities this weekend, coaching the Canadian team in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game. Read more here.

Justin Bieber Share Posts Of His New Puppy

(Radio.com) It's heartening to see a young man settle down and focuses on family. Justin Bieber has done just that, with a new addition to his household: an adorable puppy named Phil (short for Philip with one "l," for those taking notes).

He treated fans to six Instagram posts introducing Phil to a world he can neither fathom nor truly understand. Phil appears to be a black Labrador, but we'll know more when he gets older. For now, he's just an adorable little puppy with big eyes and ears whose job is to provide amusement, cuddles, and unconditional love to Justin Bieber.

Justin was sure to give his "old" dog, Esther, some love: "Can't make Esther too jealous," he wrote. Though she may have the temperament of a Belieber, Esther seemed to be taking the new development in her master's life in stride. It was just another day as Justin Bieber's dog--good work if you can get it. See the posts here.

Madonna Performs 'Take A Bow' For The First Time In 20 Years

(Radio.com) Last week in Taipei, Taiwan, Madonna reached for a classic fans hadn't heard live in two decades--"Take a Bow," her collaboration with Babyface from Bedtime Stories.

The ballad gave us one of her most iconic videos from the '90s. With a career spanning 30 years, the Queen of Pop had a lot of options to consider when she built the Rebel Heart Tour setlist. Fans were thrilled that she dusted off classics like "True Blue" and "Dress You Up."

After she finished, Madonna admitted that she felt a little rusty singing the ballad. "That was fun! First time ever. Hit a few bad notes, but it felt good to sing it," she told the audience.

Pete Yorn Streams New Song 'Halifax'

(Capitol) Pete Yorn has released the new song "Halifax". The new single is also a track from his forthcoming sixth full-length studio album "ArrangingTime", which is set to be released on March 11th. Capitol sent over the following details:

ArrangingTime runs the gamut from elegiac folk to wasteland blues to upbeat, synth-kissed rock. Of course, some things never change. Yorn still plays the observer, stepping into characters (such as the bus-stop sitter in the dreamy "Halifax") - or his past selves from previous years - routing wistful poems and beatific visions through the weather-beaten voice of a man who's seen a few things in his time.

"I'm an observer," says Yorn. "I'm into subtleties, the moments between moments, but I don't pretend to know where all the ideas come from. I try to clear myself, create a melody and let that emotion dictate what comes out."

The new album marks Yorn's first collaboration with producer R. Walt Vincent since 2001's RIAA Gold-certified debut, musicforthemorningafter, and its follow-up, Day I Forgot. Stream the new song

Kanye West To Retire From Music To Design Children's Clothing?

(Radio.com) Has Kanye West given us a glimpse into his future career plans? In cryptic tweet, West states that for "Season 4 I'm only working on kid's clothing…full time."

A kids clothing line would make sense, as Kanye is a designer, and has two children, but the "full time" gives us pause: is a hiatus from music on the way?

Kanye's new album, the final title of which has yet to revealed, will debut this week on February 11th live from New York City's Madison Square Garden.

If by some chance you can guess the title, you can be there, your clue: T.L.O.P. Check out Kanye's tweets here.

Kacey Musgraves Sounds Off About Unauthorized Use of Lyrics

(Radio.com) The debate about stealing music has been raging on since the invention of Napster (and even before that with home taping). However, if you're buying merchandise with lyrics on it, you could be perpetuating a similar offense. Kacey Musgraves posted a photo on Instagram and addressed an issue she's been facing.

"Heads up! This sign was found being sold in a major corporate western wear chain," she wrote. "(It's now pulled off the shelves) but it, along with SO MANY other countless items with my song lyrics [and sometimes my name] are being illegally manufactured and sold in not only major chains but in smaller retailers too. My lyrics are being ripped off so many times and, naturally, nobody buying this stuff would ever know that the people who actually CREATED these lyrics are seeing ZERO benefits."

What harm could it cause by using a few lyrics on a sign? Well, Musgraves goes on to point out that her songwriting is her livelihood and like everyone else, she's got bills to pay, too! Read what she had to say here.

Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah Fires Back at Martin Shkreli

(Radio.com) Perhaps one of the oddest stories, in not only Hip-Hop, but, in general, Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah returns some venom towards the Hip-Hop loving Ex-CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, Martin Shkreli.

The back story: Wu-Tang Clan recorded an album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and pressed only one copy, that was sold for $2 million to Martin Shkreli. But that's not what Shkreli is infamous for. His former company, Turing Pharmaceuticals obtained the manufacturing license for the antiparasitic drug Daraprim and raised the price of one tablet ($13.50 to $750 per tablet) by 5,556 percent, infuriating, basically, everyone in the world.

Fast forward… After being insulted by Ghostface, Shkreli threatens to eliminate Ghostface's vocals from the album, even going as far as threatening to destroy the album on video, making threat towards the Wu-Tang Emcee.

"You hilarious man," says Ghostface in the newly posted video response. "You must be on Ritalin or something man. You a fake-a- super-villian or somethin'." The emcee then goes on an eleven-minute shredding of the former CEO. "I don't even know how it came to this. It's like Ghostface versus Peter Pan 2016."

But that's the best part. Cue in to five minutes to see Ghostface's mother give Shkreli a verbal a- whoopin'. Watch the video here.

Missy Elliot Debuts New Track In Super Bowl Ad

(Radio.com) Since returning to form with "WTF (Where They From)" in 2015, Missy Elliott has remained relatively quiet on the music front. That all changed on Sunday, when she released her new single "Pep Rally" during Amazon's Super Bowl ad.

In an ad for the Amazon Echo, Alec Baldwin shares all the tricks the device can do, like play music, order things and spout off information to help him beat supposed rival Dan Marino. After things grow heated between Baldwin and Marino, the actors tells everyone to cool it because 100 million people are watching. When Missy gets wind of that number, she tells the Amazon Echo to release her new single.

Building off the song's title, there's a marching band drumline that takes center stage while whistles, cheers and more can be heard punctuating the track. It's very much Missy's take on a pep rally. Even though it was only a snippet of the song, it sounds like a big, enthusiastic track from the rapper. Check it out here.

Sam Hunt Reveals Awkward Valentine's Day Memory

(Radio.com) Valentine's Day is the perfect time to share how you feel with that special someone. However, it can lead to some awkward moments, as Sam Hunt recalls.

He was dating a girl who was headed to Honduras on a mission trip not long after Valentine's Day and decided to write her a love note in Spanish acknowledging the trip.

'I had written her a letter in Spanish," he told Sounds Like Nashville. "It was way too soon to say 'I love you' and I accidentally told her that I loved her in Spanish without knowing it. So it created a really awkward moment when she called me out on it. That's a Valentine's Day memory that I won't forget." Read more here.

Weezer's Rivers Cuomo Covers Fetty Wap's 'Trap Queen'

(Radio.com) There are many collaborations in the world of music, as witnessed just Sunday night at the Super Bowl, so maybe there is bound to be this unlikely one on the way.

Chris Stapleton Shares Insight Into 'Traveller'

(Radio.com) "If you ever get the chance to drive through the desert, I think you should." Sound advice from multi-GRAMMY nominee Chris Stapleton, talking about the title track of Traveller.

In this Radio.com interview, he discusses writing the song. Stapleton's wife bought him a 1979 Cherokee Jeep, and they flew out to Arizona to pick up the car. Instead of having it shipped home, they drove it back to Nashville.

It was a risky idea, he allows, given that the car is over three decades old. They also decided to film their trip, with no real reason to do so. "We were just going to do it to do it, which is the best reason to do things, because you feel led to do them."

He wrote the song before his father passed away, but after his father's passing "That became the time to sing the song." His father also inspired another song on the album, "Daddy Doesn't Pray Anymore," which he discusses in the below video as well. Read more here.

Von Miller Raps With Lil Wayne at Super Bowl After Party

One of the snaps shows the entire team and their audience freaking out to Drake and Future's "Big Rings," especially that line, "Cause I got a really big team/ And they need some really big rings." Watch it here.
