Ed Sheeran Says He Has A James Bond Theme Song Written

(Radio.com) Over the past few years, Ed Sheeran has fulfilled many of his dreams and aspirations. Now, he wants to be the composer of the theme for the next James Bond Movie… And he's already finished the song.

Sheeran actually wrote the tune about three years ago, but he has not yet been approached to contribute. "With Bond, I've had a theme tune written for about three years, just in case," he said during an interview on Ireland's Late Late Show. He then added that he hasn't revealed the song title "'cause someone might steal it."

The yet-untitled 25th James Bond movie is scheduled for release November 8, 2019. If Sheeran's song winds up in the film, he will join a long list of musicians who have contributed themes including Sam Smith, Adele, Chris Cornell, Jack White & Alicia Keys, Madonna and Paul McCartney.

Nicki Minaj Addresses 'White Rappers' Comment Controversy

(Radio.com) On Saturday night (Dec. 16), Nicki Minaj glanced at the iTunes top Hip-Hop/Rap chart and noticed a trend: The top spots were dominated by white rappers, like Eminem, Post Malone, Macklemore, G-Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly. The female MC shared a screenshot on Instagram with the caption: "It's a great time to be a white rapper in America huh?"

Her now-deleted comment drew mixed responses from her followers and others on social media. Some felt her observation was innocuous, others felt she was "singling out" white rappers. In addition to her question, Nicki added: "These are the top 10 rap songs on US iTunes. S/O to Em & Post. Two of my faves. Congrats to Em on his new album. #Motorsport put dat thing in sport."

After the controversy, Nicki shared another since-deleted update calling out her "sensitive" critics. "It IS a great time to be a white rapper in America," she wrote. "I wanna sign one for my new label. U know anyone?"

"Whenever a black woman speaks on ANYTHING she's labeled as 'mad' 'angry' 'bitter,'" Nicki wrote. "I'm on 4 songs on the Billboard Hot 100. I'm blessed & highly favored thx to my amazing fans." See the screenshots here.

Justin Timberlake Sparks Man Of The Woods Speculation

(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake is busy trademarking new terms, leading some to believe that he's securing the title of his upcoming album. According to TMZ, Timberlake has locked down the trademark for the phrase "Man of the Woods," which according to documents, can be used for "CDs, DVDs, downloadable music, clothes, concert posters, programs … and live performances and tours."

Timberlake also secured a trademark for "Fresh Leaves," which per those same docs can be utilized for "hats, robes, shorts, jerseys, long-sleeved t-shirts, and more."

While there is no evidence that these new trademarks are to secure the titles of Timberlake's new album and/or single, the earthy, naturist tone of the terms could indicate the singer is making a pivot to a more rustic sound. Since producers Pharrell Williams and Timbaland are working on the highly anticipated new project, a country album seems unlikely. Read more here.

Thomas Rhett Releases 'Marry Me' Video

(Radio.com) Thomas Rhett's latest single "Marry Me" is a nostalgic walk down memory lane and the video for the song should strike a chord in anyone that has experienced unrequited love. The nearly four-minute clip is shot from the perspective of a young man looking back on his life and the girl next door that got away.

In the video, a young girl is seen playing dress up with her dolls and imagining her wedding day. The boy next door peaks through the window and watches it all unfold before heading out to play football. As the song progresses, their friendship develops and the girl becomes his biggest fan at a high school football game. Later, he almost kisses her.

"'Marry Me' is one of my favorite tracks on the record," Rhett said in a press release. "It's my big 'what if' song. I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else. Heartbreaking thought and thankfully I DID tell her how I felt — but it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to."

Rhett wrote the heart-rending ballad with longtime collaborators Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally. Check out the video here.
