Carrie Underwood's New 'Sunday Night Football' Theme Goes Online

(Radio.com) Sunday Night Football's fall premiere will be happening on September 8th, NBC has shared a stream of the new theme song that country music star Carrie Underwood will sing for the opening.

Underwood revised her 2014 duet with Miranda Lambert, "Somethin' Bad." In the brief clip showing off the new theme song, Underwood sings "Oh, Sunday night" instead of the original song's line, "Oh, something bad." She reaches for the high note at the end, her voice showing off the excitement fans likely feel with the start of football season just around the corner.

The opening heartbeat rhythm that pounds under "Oh, Sunday Night" segues into a steady drumline-style beat for a rowdy opening number. "America's game, been waitin' all day/ The best of the best have come to play/ The gang's all here, let's turn it up/ It's the NFL, can't get enough," Underwood sings in the first verse.

Sunday Night Football debuts on September 8 when Super Bowl Champs the Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers at 8:30 p.m. ET. Listen to a brief clip of the new theme song here.

Ariana Grande Releases 'Side to Side' Video Featuring Nicki Minaj

(Radio.com) Ariana Grande has released a music video for her single "Side To Side" which features Nicki Minaj. The track comes from Grande's latest album "Dangerous Woman".

Wearing a hat that reads "ICON," Grande leads the charge in spin class, as she and her backup dancers turned group exercise students all peddle to the beat, performing a seated dance of sorts. Riding bikes is a cheeky nod to the reason Grande is "walking side-to-side" in her song.

Minaj shows up in an electric blue sauna, against which her red lingerie and Grande's hot pink bathing suit pop. "I'm the queen of rap/ Ariana run pop," Minaj raps.

When all is said and done, the women hit the shower room for a Bahamian-inspired moment that arises musically and visually. Watch it here.

Video captured at the event shows Weezy dissing his record label before performing "No Worries." He said, "Before I get out this motherf, I want to say three more important words: f Cash Money." The crowd responded wildly to the statement. Read more here.

Jennifer Lopez Makes Surprise Appearance At Marc Anthony Concert

(Radio.com) Pop star and actress Jennifer Lopez surprised the audience gathered at Radio City Music Hall to hear her ex-husband Mark Anthony perform last Saturday night (August 27).

Anthony is currently on tour, and the two showed that even though they split five years ago there's no bad blood. They sang Lopez's 1999 single "No Me Ames" featuring Anthony. The song originally appeared on her debut studio album On the 6.

Rather than a moving song about love, "No Me Ames" translates to "Don't Love Me," which seems like a fitting number for exes to perform. Lopez and Anthony divorced in 2011, but have remained amicable as their time onstage showed. Lopez was all smiles as she dueted with her ex-husband, and the two hugged at the end of their song as Anthony graciously told the crowd, "The queen!" Check out their social posts and watch them perform "No Me Ames" together here.

Singled Out: Le Boom's What We Do

New lo-fi dance/disco artist and DJ Le Boom, a.k.a. Christy Leech, is creating a buzz with his debut single and video so we asked him to tell us the story behind the track. Here is the story:

"What We Do" started life as a cover of Fakear's Hinode. We had a long festival slot coming up at the beginning of the summer and didn't really have enough songs in our set. I wanted to play the cover at the show but it turned out to be too slow and chilled for our festival set so I just left it.

A while later, i was writing lyrics for an acoustic song and went back to the Fakear cover and started changing it up a bit. When I overlaid the lyrics on top of it, What We Do started to take shape.

I recorded the music pretty much there and then in my apartment in Dublin. I recorded the vocals a few days later when I was visiting a tiny island called Inis Meain which is just off the west coast of Ireland. The house I recorded the vocals in obviously wasn't set up for that kind of thing so you can hear noises from outside all over the vocal tracks, Thankfully it's a very silent island.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, watch the video here and learn more about Le Boom right here!
