Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry Killed in Helicopter Crash

(Radio.com) Troy Gentry, one-half of stalwart country music duo Montgomery Gentry, has died after being involved in a helicopter crash late last week. He was 50 years old.

Taylor Swift Video Director Accuses Beyonce Of Copying 'Bad Blood'

(Radio.com) The director of Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," Joseph Kahn, was recently criticized for copying the look of Beyonce's videos for "Formation" and "Hold Up" for Taylor's latest.

Kahn quickly defended himself by insisting that the imagery in Taylor's new video are "not in [Beyonce's] art space." Now, Kahn has poked a stick into the Beyhive by saying Beyonce is the one guilty of theft, not Swift — that Bey actually nabbed the look of "Formation" from Swift's "Bad Blood."

"['Look What You Made Me Do' is] not 'Formation' at all," he told the Los Angeles Times. "They try to say she's wearing a black crop top and Beyonce wore a black crop top. But they don't realize in 2015 in 'Bad Blood,' Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyonce copied 'Bad Blood.'" Read more here.

Demi Lovato Releases New Song 'You Don't Do It For Me Anymore'

(Radio.com) Demi Lovato's sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me debuts September 29, and we've already heard its lead single "Sorry Not Sorry" and the album's title track.

Late last week, Demi released a new track called "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore" as the next promotional single. The slinky breakup song puts an old love to rest.

"You Don't Do It For Me Anymore" takes notes from the throwback vibe of Rihanna's "Love on the Brain." A dramatic string and percussion arrangement highlight the song's very direct lyrics to a former flame.

"I see the future without you," she sings "The hell was I doing in the past? Now that I've learnt all about you, a love just like ours wouldn't last." Listen to "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore" here.

Selena Gomez Makes 'TIME' Magazine Cover

(Radio.com) For this week's cover, TIME selected dozens of women who scored "firsts" in various areas of public life. There's Oprah Winfrey, the first woman to own and produce her own talk show. Madeleine Albright was our first female Secretary of State and Serena Williams was the first woman to win 23 Grand Slam titles in the open era.

They all got recognition, but so did Selena Gomez — the first woman to achieve 100 million followers on Instagram. The "Bad Liar" singer appears on one of several covers honoring the women-focused feature. TIME calls Gomez "The Tastemaker" and in the interview, Selena says she's glad she grew up before social media crept into every area of American life.

"I am glad I grew up in the time that I did," she said. "I think it's really hard to be a kid now, especially with social media. I can't imagine what it would be like to grow up with that. It's already difficult to get up every day and just feel good about yourself without seeing the highlights of everyone else's life. That's why I like being vulnerable with my fans on social media. I like that they've seen my mistakes." Read more here.

Lonzo Ball Releases First Official Rap Track 'Melo Ball 1'

(Radio.com) Following in the footsteps of ballers like Kobe Bryant, Saquille O'Neil and Damian Lilard, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has officially released a rap track.

The song, "Melo Ball 1," was first heard in a commercial for little brother LaMelo's Baller Brand shoes. Appropriate, as the song (which features Kenneth Paige) is an extended shout-out to his sibling's basketball prowess.

The NBA's No. 2 overall draft pick performed the song earlier this week at LaMelo's 16th birthday party. Lonzo Ball makes his official rap debut just a week after he made headlines for slamming hip-hop legend Nas as "outdated" on the first episode of reality show, Ball in the Family. He went on to praise Migos and Future as "real hip-hop."

The hip-hop community at large didn't take too kindly to Ball's dismissal of Nas, with Lil B tweeting that the rookie was "seconds away" from being receiving the dreaded Lil B curse. Check out Lonzo's new track here.

Dustin Lynch Talks New Album 'Current Mood'

(Radio.com) Dustin Lynch is expanding his sound on his third album, Current Mood, which hit stores last Friday, September 8. A blend of genres including country, pop, R&B and even EDM, it's unlike anything Lynch has released before.

'I'm a little nervous," Lynch admits. 'But the last thing I want for chapter three is 'Oh, this is just a new take on what we've heard for the last few years.' I hope people see a side of me they haven't seen yet."

Lynch has already seen success with his seductive lead single "Seein' Red" and its follow-up — the sentimental "Small Town Boy," a song the singer says is about the type of love we're all chasing down and trying to hang onto. "I connected to this song because it speaks of a true love and a feeling you have with someone and an emotional connection that's very intimate."

'There's a song for every emotion I'm feeling right now," he explains. 'All these songs are a behind-the-curtain-look at my heart and soul, and it's so diverse because I listen to all kinds of music. Depending on what mood I was in, I would start the session out with 'Hey, I was listening to Sugar Ray last weekend in San Diego, I want to feel like that today.' Or 'I just saw Imagine Dragons, let's try something like that.'"

One of the album's highlights includes 'Love Me or Leave Me Alone," a stripped down ballad that features Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, who first heard the song during a post-show jam session and immediately claimed as her own.

"It came about in a simple guitar vocal form. I played that demo for Luke Bryan and Little Big Town on Luke Bryan's bus. And they flipped out. And it's so cool to have artists that I look up to really kind of stand up and give me a thumbs up and say, 'This is a special song.'"

Lynch goes on to say, "I don't deserve to have Karen on my album at all it's just a dream come true to have her lend her voice, her talent, her emotion to the lyric. It's got to be hands down one of my favorite moments of my musical career." Read more here.
