Gucci Mane's New Album 'Everybody Looking' Streaming Online

(Radio.com) Gucci Mane's new album is here and Everybody Looking at Gucci. The 14-song record was completed in just six days and features collaborations with Mike Will Made-It, Zaytoven, Drumma Boy and Kanye West.

Fans can listen to Everybody Looking on Spotify and Apple Music and get a sense of where Gucci stands (as a man and an artist) on the heels of his release. Incarceration, sobriety, and reasserting the Gucci brand are some of Mane's favorite subjects these days.

Gucci has remained busy since he left prison--his comeback track "First Day Out tha Feds" was positively received and he's arranged both appearances and recording sessions with high-profile friends. There may even be a Drake EP on the way. If Gucci is having a moment, Everybody Looking is the most substantial effort he's shared so far. Listen to Everybody Looking here.

Drake Mocks Joe Budden During Dallas Concert

(Radio.com) Drake is using his Summer Sixteen Tour as a place to throw down against any and all of his haters. On only the second night of the tour, while performing in Dallas on Thursday (July 21), Drake told the crowd he should've invited Joe Budden to play "Pump It Up" for them.

"We got the good energy going on. I should've brought Joe Budden up here to let him do 'Pump It Up' one time," he said before going into the chorus of Budden's single. "Pump, pump, pump it up," Drake mocked. "F- with me." Budden responded on Twitter in a tweet that has since been deleted. He said "He want attention lol" (via XXL).

While Drake has remained quiet about the line in French Montana's song "No Shopping" that many have viewed as a response to Budden's multiple disses, Montana has stated the pair weren't thinking of the rapper when they wrote that verse. They were just goofing around in the studio having fun. Read more here.

5 Seconds of Summer Release 'Girls Talk Boys' Video

(Radio.com) While most artists who contributed to the new Ghostbusters soundtrack were content to let the actors handle all the fighting, 5 Seconds of Summer want a turn at taking out some ghosts.

The band released its music video for "Girls Talk Boys" and in it they get to tussling with some spooky monsters. The Australian band contributed their upbeat pop/rock track to the movie's soundtrack, and for the video they become a slightly homemade version of Ghostbusters. The video cuts between the guys walking eerie corridors and busting through doors to clips from the movie.

The villains 5 Seconds of Summer fight are more of the dollar store Halloween mask variety. Add to that cheesy graphics like "Pow" to add emphasis to the group's masterful skills and viewers are left with a trumped up version of a homemade movie. But it's all in good fun. Check it out here.

Oasis Expand 'Be Here Now' Album To 3-Disc Set

(Gibson) Oasis's third album Be Here Now has been criticized before for being "bloated". That was nothing! It's now coming out in a massive expanded 3xCD set with 40 tracks.

Part of the band's Chasing The Sun series of Oasis reissues, it's out in October 2016. Noel Gallagher has remixed dbut single "D'You Know What I Mean?" for the project.

Says Noel of the new mix, titled "NG's 2016 Rethink", "As the years went by I'd started to accept that the songs on Be Here Now were in fact insanely long too long! Someone (I can't remember who) had the idea that we re-visit, re-edit the entire album for posterity's sake. We got as far as the first track before we couldn't be arsed anymore and gave up.it does sound ****ing mega though!" Noel's remix of "D'You Know What I Mean?" is not to be mistaken for an "edit". It is still over seven minutes long.

The Special Edition CD, Deluxe Download and Super Deluxe Box Set formats also include the mysterious Mustique demos - 14 previously unreleased album demos recorded on the Caribbean Island in 1996.

"They bring back memories of what turned out to be - if nothing else - a bloody awesome holiday!" says Gallagher of the demos. Be Here Now remains the fastest selling album in U.K. chart history - 700,000 copies in its first three days - and sold over 8m worldwide. See the tracklisting here.

Rihanna Plays Alien Stripper in Sci-Fi Film 'Valerian'

(Radio.com) Rihanna will be featured in the upcoming sci-fi film Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets. This week, visitors at Comic-Con got an early glimpse of what she's going to look like in the Luc Besson's film.

The pop star plays an exotic dancer in an alien bar, which is run by a character played by Ethan Hawke. "I chose her as an actress not as a singer and I was surprised with what a gifted actress she is!" Besson tweeted.

The film stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as interstellar special agents. In a behind-the-scenes clip, DeHaan said he enjoyed spending two weeks working with Rihanna. He added that when he told friends what she ends up doing in the film, their jaws dropped.

'You guys don't even know," he said. 'Rihanna's part is so crazy." Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets comes out next summer. Watch a clip of the actors and Rihanna on set here.

'Justice League' Trailer Features The White Stripes 'Icky Thump'

(Radio.com) Lots of trailers have been released during this weekend's Comic-Con in San Diego; Marvel has posted clips promoting upcoming Netflix shows The Defenders, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, and they also shared a glimpse of the debut of Ghost Rider, who will appear on the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

DC has parried with the first trailer for the highly anticipated Justice League; Justice League is like DC's Avengers, uniting all of the company's big heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg.

Superman, however doesn't appear in the trailer (as he "died" at the end of Batman V. Superman, he probably needs to be "resurrected" at some point in the film). The trailer starts with a piano based score before kicking into the White Stripes' classic "Icky Thump." Check out the teaser trailer here.

Diplo Says 'No One Thought' Justin Bieber Collaboration 'Would Work'

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber and Major Lazer have released their new single "Cold Water." Diplo, who is a writer on the track along with Ed Sheeran and Benny Blanco, discussed the collaboration in an interview with Rolling Stone.

"It was spontaneous, no one thought it would work," Diplo said about the decision to bring the track to Bieber. "The timing was perfect and when we approached Justin, he was also in love with the song we all had written," Diplo added in a press statement. "

A fan of MO himself, Diplo raved about the young singer. "I felt like she was so ambiguous, having grown up singing pop and punk. Her word choice and her metaphors are just so foreign from American songwriters who tend to overuse the same phrases," he told Rolling Stone. Read more and listen to "Cold Water" here.

'Luke Cage' Trailer Features Ol' Dirty Bastard's 'Shimmy Shimmy Ya'

(Radio.com) One of the many exciting things to come out of Comic-Con is the latest trailer for the upcoming Marvel Netflix series, Luke Cage. Cage made his debut in another recent Marvel Netflix series Jessica Jones, and will now star in his own series.

The show, which takes place in New York (like Jones, and Marvel's other Netflix series, Daredevil), will be heavy on hip-hop. The first trailer featured Nas's "Made You Look" and the latest one uses Ol' Dirty Bastard's 1995 classic "Shimmy Shimmy Ya."

Like Jessica Jones, Cage doesn't have a superhero name (although in the comic books, Jones's character was at one point called "Alias," and Cage's was "Powerman" and also "Hero for Hire"). Meanwhile, Ol' Dirty Bastard real name Russell Tyrone Jones went under a number of aliases, including ODB, Osirius, Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus and Dirt Dog. Read more here.

Baby Future Calls Russell Wilson 'Papa'

(Radio.com) Future may not want to see this adorable footage. The clip, captured by TMZ from a Facebook Live video, shows baby Future giving his mother Ciara kisses and calling his new stepdad Russell Wilson "Papa."

Ciara visited CBS This Morning last summer and attempted to add perspective to the controversy surrounding her then boyfriend Wilson, and his relationship with her son with ex-boyfriend Future.

"It's been very interesting to hear what a lot of guys have to say," she told host Gayle King about the ongoing feud between her and Future about when she should introduce her new boyfriend, Wilson, to their son. 'I feel like it's a double standard. One time when we were together, I took care of his [Future's] kids as well, at a very young time in our relationship. He has four kids, one is adopted." Watch the clip here.

The Portlandia actress and Sleater-Kinney musician wrote the short, entitled The Realest Real, as a "humorous exploration of the fickle and instant world of the internet."

Singled Out: Sarah Miles' Addictive

Singer/songwriter Sarah Miles just released a new single called "Addictive" and to celebrate we asked her to tell us the story behind the song. Here is the story:

"I actually wrote the first version of "Addictive" a few years ago, and then recently re-visited it, when I started working with Nashville producer, Chris Gelbuda (Meghan Trainor). Chris liked the song, but we ended up re-working it by changing the structure a bit, editing lyrics and adding some new melodies. My bridge turned into a new chorus!

The song is about a one sided love, where one person in the relationship is essentially addicted to a person that doesn't love them back. The relationship is not healthy but, they still go back for more. Unfortunately, a scenario that many people find themselves in. Love can be a drug, good or bad, but in this case, bad. I've had my heart broken enough times to know the pain of this type of relationship and the emotion comes rushing back when I sing it.

It was an amazing experience working with Chris. He is a true talent and an inspiration to me. We have been working on some new songs recently which I cannot wait to share with everyone. Stay tuned!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
