Sam Hunt Streams New Single 'Body Like a Back Road'

(Radio.com) Sam Hunt released an online stream of his new single, "Body Like a Back Road," on Wednesday (February 1st). The song appears on his forthcoming sophomore album.

"Body Like a Back Road" revolves around a woman who took Hunt's breath away with her beauty. The two get to know each other so well that he equates her body with driving familiar roads. "Body like a back road, driving with my eyes closed/ I know every curve like the back of my hand/Doing 15 in a 30, I ain't in no hurry/ Imma take it slow just as fast as I can," he sings on the chorus. The "15 in a 30" reference winks at Hunt's upcoming 2017 tour by the same name.

Hunt's latest has a relaxed feel to it with affected guitar synths and even an organ popping up throughout the track. There's no word yet on what the title or release date of his next album will be. He last released his debut studio album Montevallo in 2014. Take a listen to the new track here.

Sting Does Singing Battle With James Corden

(Radio.com) When Sting was invited to The Late Late Show with James Corden, he probably didn't know it would be a battle of epic proportions. In a hilarious bit, the talk show host becomes a competitive singing waiter who becomes territorial about his 'zone."

Corden performs Extreme's 'More than Words," for his unsuspecting table. When the Police frontman shows up singing 'Fields of Gold," the host directs him back to his own 'zone." Corden starts in on a cover of Bryan Adams' Robinhood soundtrack hit, '(Everything I Do) I Do it For You," to which Sting's character, Al, responds with a powerful rendition of "Roxanne."

The competition escalates, ending with a one-man band complete with accordion, losing to a full band and gospel choir delivering 'Every Breath You Take." Watch it here.

Nicki Minaj 'Literally' Calls Out People On Social Media

(Radio.com) Nicki Minaj has a public service announcement for anyone messing around with the word "literally." Stop it. Minaj tweeted a screenshot explaining how the word has been co-opted in recent years.

It used to mean "in a literal or strict sense" and was considered to be the opposite of "figuratively," which described something metaphorically taking place.

But it has since been used more and more colloquially to describe something actually happening. "Literally" in many ways has become the new "figuratively." And Minaj is over it. She tweeted, "U guys, pls stop saying u were 'literally' dying laughing. B+++ if u were 'literally' dying laughing you'd be dead right now." Read more here.
