R. Kelly's Ex-Girlfriend Details His Alleged Abuse

(Radio.com) Controversial R&B star R. Kelly has been hit with new abuse allegations by an ex-girlfriend, Kitti Jones. The new charges were revealed in a lengthy piece by Rolling Stone, with Jones detailing her two-year relationship with the singer, during which she said she endured no less than 10 instances of physical abuse, was forced to have sex with other women.

She claims Kelly controlled the people she was allowed to see and withheld food if she didn't adhere to his demands. Jones recalled hitting her lowest point of the relationship: "His voice scared me, seeing that he called scared me, hearing a door open and close scared me."

It got bad enough for Jones to contemplate suicide. "I just said, 'I'm gonna kill myself and it's gonna be his fault,'" she explained. "'I can either kill myself or kill him. What use am I when I walk out of here?'"

When asked what she hopes people take from the explosive allegations, Jones said she just wants Kelly's accusers to be taken seriously. "I want them to not be so dismissive towards the women that are speaking out," Jones said. "We're not just rolling over out of bed and saying, 'Hmm, let me just make up a story about R. Kelly today. Let me make it sound similar to something that he's already been accused of and put my own remix to it just [because] I want some attention.' [Anyone who has spoken out] has gotten annihilated in the press [and] from fans."

The same day that the story was released, R. Kelly has made a response through a representative. Read it here.

(Radio.com) Are you ready? Taylor Swift has teased her upcoming music video for "...Ready for It," and it looks to be an extravagant sci-fi production.

The tease is a series of quick-cut images that opens with the pop star in a hooded shroud before it erupts into a rapid-fire sequence with the pop star appearing in a nude thermoptic suit a la Ghost in the Machine on the floor and looking up at an electrified sphere floating in her hand.

Naked cyber Taylor walks down a sleek metallic hallway, lightning flashes throughout as she breaks out of a glass cage, shooting electricity from her fingers before being chased by a group of the cyborgs. Got all that.

The cinematic clip is due to debut this Thursday night (Oct. 26), just in time for Halloween. Watch the teaser here.

"We must also recover mentally, as well as physically," she said.

Alan Jackson Returns With New Song 'The Older I Get'

(Radio.com) Alan Jackson has released new a new song called "The Older I Get," his first studio recording since 2015. The track will be featured on his upcoming album, to be released in 2018.

"This song reflects a lot of how I feel these days," the country singer said, in a press release. "It's a good song; I really liked it, but the message was a little different when I first heard it. I thought maybe it could be a little more positive about being older and wiser and more content, so they rewrote a few things, and this is how it ended up."

The lyrics are reflective and encouraging. "The older I get / The more I think / You only get a minute / Better live while you're in it / 'Cause it's gone in a blink," he sings. "The older I get / The more thankful I feel / For the life I've had / And all the life I'm living still." Listen to the new song here.

Singled Out: Frozen Nation's Dark Belgian Disco

Dark synth-pop act Frozen Nation recently released their debut album "Dark Belgian Disco" and to celebrate we asked them to tell us about the titke track and first single. Here is the story:

We had watched this fascinating documentary "The Sound Of Belgium", exploring Belgium's musical history from post WW2 to the end of the 90s; we learned that Belgium was the country with the most important number of record shops per capita, and that, with the New Beat movement, was the most influential country in the world for electronic music between 1987 and 1989. Belgian working class has, since the 60s, always considered night clubs as an opportunity to enjoy and relax but also proud and elegant.

So jamming with the arpeggiator of the AN1X Yamaha and Elvis (the modular synthesizer) the result was a nice sequence reminiscent of the New Beat sound. That was the Belgian touch! When our friends from the band Mandales listened to it they called it K2000 (it reminded them the 80's TV show's soundtrack and they are big David Hasselhoff fans).

Then we recorded a real, live disco drum and a bass ŕ la Cerrone. D found a very catchy melody. That was the disco touch! We invited Astrid B. for backing vocals she made it great. Moss said he didn't like cowbell so D put a cowbell solo in the bridge and now Moss must play cowbell on stage.

Finally Moss sang it with his dark voice at a very low tune. That was the Dark touch. We had our anthem : "Dark - Belgian - Disco"

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!

Maren Morris Lands A New Major Gig Outside Of Music

(Radio.com) Maren Morris continues to blaze trails in country music, with the breakout star revealing that she's signed a major modeling deal with the renowned Wilhelmina agency.

"This is one of the most exciting things for me personally just because I've always loved fashion and I've loved pushing the envelope and I just feel like taking it the next level with Wilhelmina," she told People.

"For me to be their first country music signing of the agency is incredible. Bridging that fashion and country music gap is such an amazing step forward for them and our genre. And I think it will certainly bring country music and its artists into the conversation with the high-fashion world."

"I think it's important to establish you don't need to look like this person to believe you're worthwhile and beautiful," Morris said of her look. "I think it's been really inspiring to see my fans and young girls and girls my age look at me as someone to model after--you doesn't need to look perfect or sound perfect."

"I mean I'm five-foot-one, and I've got short brunette hair--I'm not the typical country-looking starlet," she added. "But I think that's what gravitates my fans to me and my music. I definitely have an edge to what I say in my songs and it translates visually as well to my personal style." Check out Morris' announcement post here.
