Adele Makes Emotional Apology For Cancelling Concert

(Radio.com) An emotional Adele had to cancel her second show in Phoenix, Arizona. The singer was scheduled to appear for the second night, August 17, at Talking Stick Resort Arena, but a cold put her out of commission, reports US.

Adele broke the news to fans on social media, explaining that she is sick and will have to reschedule. She promised to come back and make up for it, saying, "I'll smash it."

In a video that depicted her without makeup and looking haggard, she said she had been "trying to sing all morning" but added, "Nothing's really happening."

'Hello, everyone, specifically everyone in Phoenix and Arizona," she began in the clip. "I can't do my show tonight, my second show here. I'm really, really sorry. I've had a cold for a couple days, and I've been pushing through it and I did my show last night and I loved it, but I pushed too hard. And my cold has gotten the better of me."

"I'm so sorry to let you down," she continued. I know lots of people would be flying in, from all over. It's the last thing I want to do, but I have to look after myself because I've got so many more shows to do. I'm really, really sorry, have a wonderful evening without me." Watch the video here.

St. Vincent Records National Anthem for NFL

(Radio.com) St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark has recorded a version of the "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the NFL. In a new interview Vincent reveals that she was a big Cowboys fan, having lived in Dallas when the team won multiple championships.

"My parents bought me this Dallas Cowboy uniform," she said "I had this vision that I would go to a Dallas Cowboys game fully clad and they would be scouring the stands going 'who can we get to win this football game?' and I'd be like 'me,' and I would get to play with the Dallas Cowboys."

As for her rendition of the National Anthem, Clark says she wanted something "bendy and a little bit manic or off-kilter just to represent the idea of what it is to be an American and how we're going to be the best version of ourselves in the future in the turbulent times in which we live."

He's been hoping to release a Christmas album like the kind Sinatra, Bing Crosby and other classic vocalists each did during their heyday. And now his dream is finally coming true.

Eldredge will release a Christmas album this fall, which features standard holiday songs as well as an original tune, "Glow." Speaking about the album, he said, "I've been inspired for this record from a very young age. I dreamt of the day I could record all these classic songs that I've loved since I was a little kid."

He recorded everything at Avatar Studios in New York, and tried to set a particular mood while he worked on the project since it was so far ahead of the Christmas season. Read more here.

Luke Bryan Performs New Song 'Southern Gentleman'

(Radio.com) Luke Bryan's Kill the Lights Tour is winding down and as the date for his upcoming EP Farm Tour: Here's to the Farmer grows nearer he's started debuting new music.

A fan captured Bryan singing an acoustic version of a new tune, ostensibly called "Southern Gentlemen," at a recent show. The song praises the kind of love Bryan can offer his lady because he was reared in the south. The video picks up immediately with the opening lyrics.

"You looked at me like I was crazy / When I said 'ma'am' to that little old lady / You ain't heard talk like that lately / But I could see it's got you smiling / You say you still remember our first date me cooking you dinner / And how I didn't even try to kiss you at the end of the date," Bryan sings, accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar. The hook ends with a catchy nod to the title, "Ain't nobody gonna love you better than/ This southern gentleman."

It's not clear whether this will appear on Bryan's new EP, as he hasn't released the tracklist yet, but it seems like fitting subject matter for a tour paying tribute to all things agricultural. Bryan's new EP Farm Tour: Here's to the Farmer will be released September 23, and just a week or so later he'll launch his Farm Tour on October 5 in Gaston, SC. Watch "Southern Gentleman" here.

Meek Mill Shares Preview Of New Track

(Radio.com) Even before Meek Mill's house arrest was lifted, he was already working on new music. But he couldn't exactly share much with fans due to the terms of that probation. Now that he's finished, Meek has clearly been busy in the studio prepping Dreamchasers 4 and having way too much fun teasing fans with snippets of new music.

Meek posted a video to Instagram Thursday (August 18) sharing a snippet of a song he's working on. While driving around with his friend, Meek filmed himself listening the track. The smile on his face says it all as he points his finger at the camera to punctuate the beat. 'I got the key to the streets, I got the key to the safe / He wanna see what I'm selling, I put a key in his face," he can be heard rapping.

As the song builds in intensity, Meek begins waving the phone around. His body seems physically incapable of remaining still while the bass blazes so fiercely.

It's unclear whether this track will appear on his upcoming Dreamchasers 4 or whether it's for another project, but either way Meek is back and ready to share some big tunes. Watch Meek's tease here.

New Lady Gaga Single 'Perfect Illusion' Coming

(Radio.com) With Mark Ronson sharing photos of Lady Gaga in the studio, rumors abounded that LG5 was officially on its way. But then Gaga seemed so busy between a new starring role in the Bradley Cooper-directed film A Star is Born and her upcoming second collaborative album with Tony Bennett that it didn't seem likely she'd release new music anytime soon.

Gaga loves a surprise and she sure dropped one earlier this week (August 17). Using 12 brightly colored posts to create a single message, she shared on Instagram that her new single "Perfect Illusion" will arrive this September. She also tweeted the information. Beyond sharing the announcement itself, Gaga didn't say much else about the single.

In May, producer Ronson posted a photo of Gaga and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker in the studio together. He captioned the image "Illusion," which, given Gaga's latest announcement, now makes a lot more sense. Read more here.

Jeweler Reportedly Seeks $270K From Tyga

(Radio.com) Now that rapper Tyga has settled a $480,000 lawsuit with his former landlord, his ex-jeweler is hoping to recover $270,000. Jeweler Jason Arasheben of Jason of Beverly Hills claims that the rapper has owed him big money since 2012, reports People.

Arasheben says that in August 2012, Tyga (born Michael Ray Stevenson) agreed to pay $28,275 for the a diamond pantheon watch, but never did, and that four months later the rapper borrowed a $63,000 diamond Cuban link chain that was never returned.

The jeweler originally filed suit in 2013 to try to collect $185,306.50 in costs and late fees. The total rose again in January 2014, when a judge entered a default judgment against Tyga, ordering him to pay $208,334.47. At the time, Tyga's rep said the situation was "all a misunderstanding," reports People. The judgment has still not been paid and with the added costs the current total is "in excess of $270,000" in damages, interest and attorney fees.

So Arasheben has hired Danny Abir and Boris Treyzon from Abir, Cohen, Treyzon and Salo, the same lawyers that just settled case between Tyga and his former landlord Gholamreza Rezai. Read more here.
