Britney Spears Shares Topless Photo Online

(Radio.com) Britney Spears' ninth studio album Glory drops later this month, but she's still found time to relax and unwind. During a tropical getaway, she Instagrammed a photo of herself, topless, standing on the deck of a ship.

The photo reveals how months of grueling Vegas shows have kept her looking fit, strong, and ready to reclaim her pop title. "Still dreaming a mile a minute," she captioned the photo.

With new singles on the airwaves, a fresh album in the can, and plenty of personal blessings to celebrate, everybody's dreaming about what's next for Britney. And we won't have to wait much longer! See the photo here.

Miranda Lambert Ejects Rowdy Fans From Concert

(Radio.com) A few rowdy fans decided they wanted to participate in Miranda Lambert's show on Friday, August 5, but she wasn't having any of it. The country musician decided that not only were a few distracting fans standing front and center in the crowd not allowed to ride in her little red wagon, but they needed to leave altogether.

The no-nonsense star stopped her show to deal with the problem, and a fan in the audience captured the moment. As her band began playing the intro to her song "White Liar," Lambert stepped toward the front of the stage to speak with the audience members interrupting her. When she got back to the mic, she explained to the crowd, "Alright you guys, we're gonna continue our song in just a second, when these guys are done being our opening act." She then turned to her security. "Can we deal with that?" she asked.

Presumably retorting to their complaints about being forced to leave, Lambert mocked their reactions. "Super cool, dude. Super cool," she said before addressing the audience. "Okay, sorry. Sometimes you just have to ditch a douchebag every now and then!" The crowd cheered in support and Lambert got underway once again. Watch the moment captured here.

Panic! At The Disco Joined On Stage By Former Drummer And Pete Wentz

(Radio.com) Panic! At The Disco returned to Irvine Meadows Saturday night and by all accounts it was a magical show for fans where they were joined by some very special guests.

It's been no secret that the band's former drummer, Spencer Smith has been battling addiction. Brendon Urie has been vocal about the track "This Is Gospel" having been written about his friend and former bandmate. So when frontman Urie announced they'd be playing "Gospel" next, fans were elated when his guitar was hand-delivered by none other than Smith.

A shirtless Urie explained Smith has been sober for "almost two years now." "If you know anyone that's been going through that," he said, "give them all that love." After handing off the guitar and sharing a hug, Urie dedicated the tune. "This is for my buddy Spencer!"

The band was also joined on stage by Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, who took up the job of flag bearer for Panic!'s hit "Victorious." Read more here.

Taylor Swift Does 'Dilemma' Duet With Nelly

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift sure knows how to celebrate birthdays. The pop star was in The Hamptons over the weekend for supermodel friend Karlie Kloss' 24th birthday when she joined Nelly on stage for a performance of the rapper's 2002 hit "Dilemma."

During the appearance, Swift took over Kelly Rowland's part of the song while Nelly rapped along. It wasn't the first time Swift and Nelly teamed up. He has taken the stage with Swift during several of her tours, including last year, when he joined her and Haim for the rapper's hit "Hot In Herre."

"She's just a dope person," Nelly told Rolling Stone. "She ain't got no ill wills or nothing like that, and that's kind of hard when you come from where we come from. You rarely come across those type of people. It's kind of like, Taylor Swift and my granny. Who doesn't love both of those people?" Check it out here.

DJ Quik Threatens To Sue YG

(Radio.com) DJ Quik was one of the pioneers of west coast hip-hop being a member of Death Row in its heyday alongside Dr. Dre and Tupac. Six weeks ago, Quik tweeted 'guess what Compton rapper I'm about to sue" though he promptly deleted the tweet.

On Sunday night, the Compton legend went public accusing YG and his management of not giving him credit over the platinum song "My Hitta," which also features Rich Homie Quan.

Quik is now both a rapper and a producer having worked on numerous albums over the years while even still releasing his own album in April 2016 titled Rosecrans. Read more including the tweets here.

Wyclef Jean Announces New 'J'ouvert' EP

(Radio.com) Wyclef Jean will release the five-song-song EP "J'ouvert" on September 30. The EP follows the release of his new single, "Hendrix," and prefaces his forthcoming 2017 album, Carnival III: Road to Clefication.

Wyclef says that the EP is a fitting introduction for his next album. "My goal for J'ouvert was to pick up where I left off after 'Sweetest Girl' and [Shakira's] 'Hips Don't Lie,'" he told Rolling Stone. "I had these Caribbean sonics haunting my brain and I knew this EP would be the start to what would become the Carnival 3 album."

Rolling Stone reports that Carnival III: Road to Clefication will be released next summer to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the musician's original Carnival. Check out the track details here.

Kendrick Lamar Featured In New Reebok Video

(Radio.com) Kendrick Lamar shares a brief freestyle all about his classic sound and style as part of a new video celebrating the Reebok Classic and showcasing his collaboration with the company.

The rapper designed and released the Classic Leather "Perfect Split" earlier this year, and in the new video directed by Nabil he opens up about the nexus between his approach to music and his kicks.

Lamar recalls when he first started rapping, and connects it back to the shoe styles he saw in the classroom. "By the time I started writing, when I was 13, I knew from the jump I wanted something that was original, something that was classic," he says in the video. "You think about rhymes and style, you always want a classic feel, so my first introduction to a classic shoe was the moment I stepped in school and I said to myself 'I want to put something down on paper.'"

It just so happened that Reebok had the most popular shoe at the time. He adds, "Everybody in the classroom was wearing Reebok Classics." Read more here.

Rae Sremmurd Reveal NSFW 'Set the Roof' Video

(Radio.com) Rae Sremmurd have traveled through time to dance with dinosaurs and colorfully kicked it on the beach, so why wouldn't they party with an alien in their new video "Set the Roof" featuring Lil' Jon?

The rap duo released their latest video Monday (August 8), and in it they party at spa with an eclectic cast of attendees. Rae Sremmurd have been clever about taking rap tropes and spinning them around.

Like many a video before "Set the Roof," there's no shortage of scantily clad women shaking their derrieres, cash money raining down and bottles popping in the brothers' newest visual. But within those familiar scenes is an alien enjoying the party as well.

Brothers Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown pour out a bottle over a fierce looking alien who's just there to get down. Things take a turn when a larger woman dressed in a neon blue dress enters the spa and starts busting a move with the alien. Because, you know, the club. Watch the NSFW video here.

Peter Gabriel Growing Up Going HD With Reissue

(Kayos) Eagle Rock have announce a double release from Peter Gabriel on September 16, 2016, which will feature a reissue of the 2DVD set "Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" and for the first time a Blu-ray+DVD set of "Growing Up Live + Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" containing all the material from the original DVD releases plus the previously unreleased "Growing Up On Tour - A Family Portrait".

The "Growing Up Live" concert film was recorded on the tour of the same name from 2002/3 and boasts key tracks Sledgehammer, In Your Eyes, Solsbury Hill, Digging In The Dirt, More Than This, Red Rain, Growing Up, Mercy Street, Here Comes The Flood and more. "Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" includes the concert film of the Still Growing Up tour from 2004 and the "Unwrapped" film (both shot in standard definition), which give a more intimate look at Peter Gabriel on tour and explore the world behind the songs featured in the shows. The Blu-ray+DVD set has all the material from these three DVD discs included on one Blu-ray disc and one DVD. Also included on the Blu-ray disc is the Family Portrait film.

In 2002 and 2003, following the release of his album "Up", Peter Gabriel went on the road with his "Growing Up" tour, once again collaborating with production designer Robert Lepage to create a spectacular and theatrical live experience. The tour took in thirty-two cities across the USA, Canada and Europe with this concert film, directed by Hamish Hamilton, being shot over two nights at the FilaForum in Milan in May 2003 with Peter Gabriel and the band performing "in the round" at the center of the arena. Filmed in high definition, this was originally released on DVD in 2003 but never on Blu-ray. The DVD is now being reissued and the concert is being released on Blu-ray for the first time.

"Still Growing Up Live & Unwrapped" is taken from the "Still Growing Up" tour of 2004, which took Peter Gabriel and his band into smaller and more intimate venues in contrast to the large arenas chronicled in the "Growing Up Live" film. Award-winning director Hamish Hamilton reunites with Peter Gabriel for this concert film. The 'Unwrapped' film sees Anna Gabriel take over the director's chair with the collaboration of Hamish Hamilton. A simpler approach suggested a different set list and Peter, Hamish and Anna were determined that this should be filmed in a very different style. It shows Peter Gabriel as many of his fans love to see him, just playing the music.

For the Blu-ray+DVD edition "Growing Up Live" is presented in high definition for the first time on the Blu-ray disc. Also on the Blu-ray disc in standard definition are the "Unwrapped" film and its bonus features and, as an added bonus, Anna Gabriel's previously unreleased film "Growing Up On Tour - A Family Portrait" has also been included. The DVD in this set contains the "Still Growing Up Live" film and its bonus features. Find the Blu-Ray preorder, which includes the track details here.

Meshiaak Stream New Song 'At The Edge Of The World'

(TeamRock) Meshiaak have made their stream of latest track "At The Edge Of The World" available to stream with TeamRock. The song features on the band's debut album Alliance Of Thieves, which is set for release on August 19 via Mascot Records.

Meshiaak features former Slayer, Anthrax, Testament and Iced Earth drummer Jon Dette, Teramaze guitarist Dean Wells, former 4-Arm frontman Danny Tomb and bassist Nick Walker.

Tomb says: "I would have to say that At The Edge Of The World would be the one we'd love to get out there as a single. "It's the kind of song that would speak to people on a lot of different levels, something that most people would be able to connect with fairly easily.

"It's a song that is very close to me personally, especially when it came to the lyrics. It's where I've found myself in the last three years and my moments of doubt, trials and frustrations concerning experiences I've had to go through over that time." Check out the track here.

Shinedown Focus On Fans Not Industry Negativity

(Classic Rock) Shinedown's Brent Smith says they try to focus on their fans 100%. The singer says making fans their main priority reminds them to stay positive in an uncertain music industry. When asked if anything still surprises him after more than 20 years as a musician, Smith tells Full Metal Jackie:

"I've got to be honest with you, there's not a lot that surprises me anymore. I don't really take the calls anymore where somebody gets on the phone with me and says, 'Are you sitting down?' It's not necessary for me anymore.

"There's always twists and turns, and you've got to learn how to be as positive as you can be, because the industry can be really, really negative. But I always think about it from the fact of the matter that I'm still the 15-year-old kid in the middle of the audience looking up at the artist that I'm watching, and I'm still just enamored by that.

"That's what we really try to do day in and day out - make sure that the audience is 100% taken care of at all times." Read more here.

Alcest Streaming New Song 'Oiseaux De Proie'

(TeamRock) Alcest have released a stream of their new track "Oiseaux De Proie." It's been lifted from the French outfit's upcoming fifth album Kodama, which will launch on September 30 via Prophecy Productions.

The follow-up to 2014's Shelter is a concept album - and vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Neige says Kodama - which is Japanese for 'tree spirit' - was influenced by Japanese culture and Hayao Miyazaki's 1997 animation Princess Mononoke.

He tells Noisey: "It's an album about the confrontation of the natural world and the human world. The concept of the album came after I watched Princess Mononoke - in the film, it's exactly that idea, of the two different worlds that try to live together.
"They struggle, and I think we are really busy taking care of our little programs that we forget there is another world around us that is being neglected.

"Nature always inspires us, and also it has kind of an urban side because I'm living in the city - it's like a mix of very mortal things and very spiritual things." Listen to the new song here.
