Kanye West Responds To Drug And Alcohol Insinuations

(Radio.com) Last month, Kanye West filed a $10 million lawsuit against Lloyd's of London, the insurance company that covered his canceled Saint Pablo Tour. West and his touring company Very Good Touring, Inc. claimed that there were unpaid settlements stemming from the tour's abrupt cancellation last year.

In a countersuit, the British insurance firm implied that West's drug and alcohol abuse caused the medical issues that forced him to abort the tour, or that his illness was the result of a pre-existing condition. Though Lloyd's did not directly accuse Kanye of abusing drugs and alcohol, the countersuit cited those exemptions in the policy as grounds to deny West more settlement money.

West and his legal team have now responded to the counterclaim, urging the courts to dismiss the insurer's response. 'The Counterclaim should be withdrawn or stricken," argue West's lawyers.

Documents from the new motion accuse Lloyd's of suggesting "that they may deny coverage of the claim on the unsupportable contention that use of marijuana by Kanye caused the medical condition." Read more here.

Demi Lovato Streams New Song 'Sexy Dirty Love'

(Radio.com) Demi Lovato just released another track, "Sexy Dirty Love," from her upcoming album Tell Me You Love Me. The disco meets EDM vibe is an energetic dance jam with infectious and sensual melodies.

"Sexy Dirty Love" is the third single from her upcoming release and follows "Sorry Not Sorry" plus "You Don't Do It for Me Anymore." The full album is scheduled for release on September 29.

In "Sexy Dirty Love," Lovato starts off singing about phone sexting, and by the chorus she's moved on to lusty physical entanglements. "Hittin' me up late always be blowin' up my phone/ I'm lying awake wonderin' why I'm still alone/ Lord knows I am sinning, please forgive me for my lust/ Sending pictures back and forth/ Babe, I'm craving your touch," she sings at the opening of the song.

And for the chorus, she's laying herself bare: 'You got me so high/ Pull me closer into you and watch our bodies intertwine/ I feel so alive/ You know what I'm thinking of/ Got me dreamin' 'bout that sexy dirty love/ Sexy dirty love/ Sexy dirty love/ Sexy dirty love."

The singer teased Twitter last week, saying, "If you're that curious about my sexuality, watch my documentary. But I don't owe anybody anything." Listen to the track here.

Right Said Fred Reveal Taylor Swift Look and I'm Too Sexy Mash-up

(Radio.com) If Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" made you want to strut down the block in a pair of leather pants, that's because it not-so-subtly interpolates the melody of "I'm Too Sexy."

In fact, Right Said Fred were credited as co-writers on the Swift single. Brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass have spoken highly of the experience, which catapulted their 1991 hit back into the popular imagination. Now they've released a music video of the duo singing live over a mash-up of "I'm Too Sexy" and "Look What You Made Me Do."

Last month, Richard Fairbrass spoke to NME about how the writing credit came to pass. 'It was about three weeks ago - the start of August," he said. "My brother [Fred] signed me up. He lives in Barcelona and he just phoned me up and said we've had a phone call from LA, and Taylor Swift wants to use part of 'I'm Too Sexy.'"

'It was firmed up about a week or two ago, but we were told to be bloody quiet about it because they wanted to make sure there was no leakage in the meantime. She and all the people that work with her have been incredibly friendly. I've got a huge bunch of flowers here from them in the house. It's been a rewarding experience, and very flattering. I don't have a single bad thing to say. Watch the sexy new video here.

Teacher Suspended For Using Explicit Kodak Black Lyrics

(Radio.com) A sixth-grade teacher was suspended this week for instructing students to use Kodak Black's lyrics for an assignment. The Bethune Middle School teacher gave the kids explicit lyrics from the song "Drowning," from A Boogie With da Hoodie, and asked them to rewrite them to express a positive message.

Some parents didn't view the creative move as positive at all. One, Crishana Wright, told WSB-TV that the assignment was 'really against everything I try to teach them."

The lyrics that the teacher gave the students are filled with profanities and have been perceived as racist and sexist: 'Sniper Gang I put a n—- on a carton/ I'm the s— I'm fartin', I don't know how to potty," reads one line. 'I ain't doing trims, I'm in the cut like I'm a barber/ She call me daddy, but I ain't her motherf—— father," reads another. Read more here.

Dierks Bentley Releases New Song 'Hold the Light'

(Radio.com) Dierks Bentley has shared a new song, "Hold the Light." It's from the upcoming movie, Only the Brave, which tells the story of Arizona's Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite wildlands firefighting crew that lost 19 firefighters in a 2013 blaze.

"Hold the Light" is first song Bentley has written specifically for a movie, and is a collaboration with Joe Trapanese, Jon Randall and Bon Iver drummer S. Carey. Carey's brother-in-law is a wildlands firefighter.

"I'm extremely thankful to be able to honor these men, these true heroes, in the form of a song in a beautiful, powerful film." Only the Brave hits theaters on Oct. 20. Check out Dierks' new song here.

Kendall Jenner Stars In Fergie's New 'Enchantc' Video

(Radio.com) Fergie's second solo studio album Double Dutchess is out on Friday, and the former Black Eyed Peas singer released a video for "Enchante (Carine)" featuring model Kendall Jenner.

In the clip, Kendall wanders a minimalist home/soundstage in various trendy outfits, surrounded by carbon copies of herself. Fergie doesn't appear in the video but Jenner lip-syncs along to her new track. "Enchante" is one of several ambitious visuals Fergie has released--with more to come.

The song's French-language chorus and stylish video (as well as its subtitle) were inspired by noted fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, formerly of Vogue Paris.

'She's a legend -- she knows what she wants, she's very detail-orientated, which I love -- and very chic," Fergie told Women's Wear Daily. 'For me, I like to learn from people like her, to elevate my style. Like I learned from her with hosiery, it was very important to have the line straight up the back of the leg. So now anytime with the hosiery, the line must be meticulously straight! Even how to say 'oui' -- like a chic Parisian girl. [My song] 'Enchante' is an homage to her, because she would teach me these chic little things and talk about Brigitte Bardot and such. You can't help but be attracted to that and learn from it -- I just love being a sponge in all of it." Watch the video here.

Kelsea Ballerini Opens Up About New Single 'High School'

(Radio.com) Country singer Kelsea Ballerini has been dropping tracks in preparation for her upcoming album, Unapologetically, and the latest one comes from her real life.

The songwriter posted, "I wrote it after a trip to my hometown sitting on my bedroom floor wondering if I was wrong for leaving so soon and for wanting something different.

The answer is no, that everyone has a perfect and right path, and mine led me to Nashville at 15, trading in prom queen for a big city dream and a slate that was clean. Y'all meet my baby of the record, High School is available now. #gobobcats"

In an interview with Time she shared that the song is about going back to your hometown and realizing 'Part of that was really bitter, and part of that was really sweet. I think it was just one of those songs where I realized that I'd changed a lot." Ballerini teased the song with a video from a visit to her high school. See it here.
