Hill's son, Joshua Omaru Marley, shared a snippet of a new song on Snapchat featuring the clearly distinctive vocals of Drake rapping over a sample of Hill's 1998 track, "Ex-Factor."
The track, allegedly titled "Showin' Off," was previously teased on Soundcloud before the poster was hit with a cease and desist letter from Drake's label, Universal Music Group (via XXL). Read morehere.
The full-length album is set to hit stores on April 13th.'It's about putting things behind you…things that have held you down…and looking ahead," Aldean explained of the title song in a press statement. 'When you look at my career and the personal experiences I've gone through, it really seemed like a fitting title for this record and it's one of the best songs I've ever recorded. It was important to me to pick songs that have substance to them, I'm more conscious of that these days."
Among the new songs on the effort includes lost love lament 'Drowns the Whiskey," featuring Miranda Lambert. See the full tracklist and listen to the new trackhere.
The song offers yet another example of the group's catchy, beat-heavy blend of EDM and pop. "Everybody Hates Me" is a mid-tempo, hip-hop-inflected track about being dismayed and disillusioned. "Yeah, I just wanna drink tequila with my friend/ She said she cheated 'cause she's trying to get ahead. The more I read her, yeah, the more I take offense/ I'm so defeated I can't get outside my head."
By the time The Chainsmokers hit the chorus, they're in full self-deprecation mode: "I walk into the club like everybody hates me/ I'm talking to myself, s—, now they think I'm crazy/ I walk into the club like everybody hates me." Listenhere.
In the clip, Diplo sports a long blonde wig (the same one he wore in a Yeezy photo shoot parody) and a long green shirt (but no pants) to flop and flounder around to the strains of Swift's current single.
"I'm delicate," the DJ captioned the Twitter video, where he particularly has trouble attempting to do the splits. Looks like Diplo isn't exactly a yoga aficionado.
The clip is, however, highly entertaining, with Diplo barley containing himself from cracking up while he writhes around on the floor. Diplo has a history of provoking Swifties, watch the cliphere.
For the revamp, Halsey enlisted Big Sean and Stefflon Don. Each rapper delivers a verse in their own distinct style and both compliment the upbeat dance-pop song.
Halsey has had considerable success with collaborations. 'Him & I," which features her boyfriend G-Eazy has topped the charts and 'Closer" with The Chainsmokers held the number one slot for 11 weeks. Check out Halsey's "Alone" remakehere.
In a statement about the cover, Q-Tip says, 'Elton's influence shows you that the possibilities of music are endless…. He's a master showman, singer, pianist. He's the all round goods."
The spirit of that statement is realized in a new music video released to accompany the song. A very eccentric dance party sees characters in extravagant costumes vibing to the slow driving beat of the music. Director Hector Dockrill was reportedly inspired by Paris Is Burning, a 1990 ball culture documentary.
Other artists featured on the Revamp album include, Lady Gaga, Queens of the Stone Age, and Florence and the Machine. Watch the new videohere.
Instead of getting mad, Cabello leaned into the moment, firing off a series of absurd modeling poses for the startled pap. "lmao it's kinda like when life throws u lemons, make lemonade," Cabello joked on Twitter, retweeting a tweet featuring the paparazzi photos. "If they're taking pictures, might as well do a photoshoot."
Pop Crave has shared video of the moment, capturing the "Havana" singer striking poses as the surprised photographer thanks her for the unexpected outburst. Check it outhere.
The "Toxic" singer stretches and lifts weights to the throwback song. Spears looks strong and healthy in her workout gear, offering her fans yet another glimpse of how hard she pushes herself.
Later in the day, Spears shared a photo from her grand foyer wearing an off-the-shoulder white dress. She seemed to be in the St. Patrick's Day spirit, captioning the image with a variety of shamrock emojis. Watch Britney's workouthere.
"Well just got schooled as to what a 'shoey' is at CMC Rocks. Australia knows how to party. Might never leave this beautiful place!" reads the caption of the photographic evidence.
Check out the fun post and photographhere.
"Hobbs," the country music star posted on Instagram with the pic. "Begging for attention or protecting one of his new little additions to our family? You be the judge."
Poor Hobbs appears to be in need of some love, but the puppy will just have to get used to the tiny new sheriffs in his town. Life has surely changed dramatically for Hobbs since Scott's adorable girls Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn hit the scene back on January 29. See the posthere.
Sometimes you write a song and it all just comes together for you at once. There's no struggle, no loss for words, no question about what it should be about, what the bridge should be. It's almost presented to you. Those moments seem to come when you know and listen to what your gut and heart want to say and what you've been denying. I tend to hold a lot inside, but sometimes you only can push it in so long before the floodgates are released and there's no choice but to spell it out.
Some relationships are exactly like a drug. They literally make you high. Especially if the foundation was cracked, to begin with: the fights, the screaming matches, the arguments, the makeup, the fun, the excitement, the passion, the connection, the stress, the blaming, the attraction, the makeup again… it's all stimulation. Overstimulation. Hurricane energy. You live in that chaos and once in a while get a taste of the euphoric eye of the storm, where everything is calm and perfect…until you take one step back and lose your footing to the wind. It's ups and downs, highs and crashes. It changes you to the point where what you remember of normal life becomes far too mundane to bear. It becomes an addiction.
The lyric "We can be higher than this" was to me a hope that we can reach a real high, backed with true soul connection and an honest, selfless love, versus the ego. That there were glimpses of what we could really be and maybe they were actually attainable. It was written in a way where either she or I could have been the author since we both were to blame for the situations.
Musically, the notes and chords were a carbon copy of what I was feeling inside. They seemed to do the same tugging of the gut as the ideas behind the song did for me. Sometimes living in that sort of pain can be comforting. Because at least you're feeling after all…
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourselfright here!
