Linkin Park Announce New Song 'Heavy' Featuring Kiiara

(Radio.com) Linkin Park revealed their next single "Heavy" would include glitch-pop's own Kiiara. The band tweeted a link to the single's lyrics page on Monday, confirming the collaboration.

Word first broke about Kiiara's potential involvement when Linkin Park discussed incorporating a female vocalist on "Heavy" in a video they posted to their website.

"It could be interesting to maybe experiment with the vocals on the chorus," Joe Hahn said. "Like bringing in a female vocalist to add harmony could be cool. I don't know if those are good directions, but just something that feels out of the box for us could give that dynamic it needs." The rest of the band agreed. Although they didn't specify working with Kiiara at the time, rumors began circulating with her name attached.

"I'm holding on," begins the chorus. "Why is everything so heavy. Holding on, so much more than I can carry, I keep dragging around what's bringing me down, if I just let go, I'd be set free. Holding on, why is everything so heavy." Read more here.

Police Shut Down Migos' Pre-Grammy Party

(Radio.com) Atlanta rappers Migos had an eventful weekend. The group's pre-Grammy party was shut down by police after the address was listed publicly on Saturday (Feb. 11). And earlier that day, Migos member Offset was kicked off a plane.

Migos hosted a Black Tie Grammys party which boasted over 1,500 attendees. Police were reportedly called early Sunday morning (Feb. 12) to help break up the party. One of the party-goers included Chris Brown.

That wasn't where the trouble began for the rap group, though. Earlier Saturday, Migos rapper Offset was kicked off an American Airlines flight after he refused to stop talking on the phone when a flight attendant approached him. Angered about the incident, the rapper uploaded a video about the situation. Read more here.

Selena Gomez's New Track 'Feel Me' Leaked Online

(Radio.com) Selena Gomez premiered "Feel Me" exclusively on tour, but high-quality studio audio has eluded fans for months but the wait is over as a version of the track has surfaced online.

Over the weekend, a very good cut of the song leaked on social media, and fans can't get enough of their new Selena track. "Feel Me" reportedly comes from Selena's next studio album, which doesn't yet have a title or a release date.

Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood Release 'The Fighter' Video

(Radio.com) Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood released the music video for their collaboration, "The Fighter." The song is off of on Urban's 2016 album "Ripcord."

The video focuses, in part, on Urban and Underwood in a warehouse-like space reminiscent of a boxing ring. Surrounded by overhead lights that flash and shimmer as they "battle" back and forth between verse and chorus, the pair jump, twirl and energetically engage one another.

Elsewhere, a young woman dressed in workout clothes walks through an industrial district at night but stops under an overpass to dance. The choreography incorporates boxing moves so her dancing exhibits equal parts grace and strength. Watch the video here.

Jay Z Disses Drake On DJ Khaled's New Track 'Shining'

(Radio.com) DJ Khaled's new track featuring Jay Z and Beyonce, "Shining," has some fans thinking Hov is taking a subliminal shot at Drake. On his verse, Jay Z raps, "I know you ain't out here talkin' numbers, right / I know you ain't out here talkin' summers, right / I know you ain't walkin' 'round talkin' down / Sayin' boss st when you a runner, right?"

Although he doesn't name drop Drake, Jay Z's reference to "numbers" (aka age), "summers" and talking big seems to be a response to Drake's single "Sneakin." Drake rapped on that track, "You ain't own it right away, you had to wait on nas/ Man, I'm only 29, have some patience with us/ Plus I never met nobody from my label, na/ I just pop up with the music then they pay a n-."

It's not the first time they've traded subtle jabs. After Drake rapped, "I used to wanna be on Roc-a-Fella then I turned into Jay" on his single "Summer Sixteen," Jay Z responded when he appeared on another DJ Khaled track, "I Got the Keys." Read more here.

Nick Cannon Leaving 'America's Got Talent' Over Joke Dispute

(Radio.com) Nick Cannon announced he has quit America's Got Talent on Monday (February 13th), after hosting the show for the past eight seasons and he opened up about his reasons why on Facebook.

In a lengthy post, Cannon explained how NBC executives weren't happy about an upcoming comedy special he'd shot. "After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke," Cannon wrote.

According to Cannon, the executives thought he was in breach of contract because the comedy special portrayed their brand in a negative light. But he sees things differently. "Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment," he wrote. "Recently many of my mentors have cautioned me that soon 'The System' would come down on me because I was speaking too many truths and being to loud about it." Read more here.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty's Target Commercial Goes Online

(Radio.com) The new Target commercial premiered during a break at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night (Feb. 12). A fortuitous placement, the announcer during the awards show even plugged the advertisement before the Grammys went to commercial.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty star in the three-minute clip where the two acts remake the 1988 classic 'It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock. Throughout Lil Yachty and Jepsen's new spin on the track, they are shown navigating the store.

The commercial was choreographed by La La Land's Mandy Moore and showcases some fancy footwork from both Jepsen and Yachty alongside many dancers who recreate the Target logo with perfectly arranged shopping carts.

"It was a great experience," Lil Yachty previously said in a behind-the-scenes clip from the set. 'I got to bring my whole team out for filming so we had so much fun! It was fire." Watch the new Target commercial in its entirety here.

Justin Timberlake Shares 'Driving Range Goofball' Clip

(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake enjoys playing golf during his downtime and has participated in more than a few celebrity tournaments over the past few years. He showed off his skills in a video he shared on Instagram last Friday (February 10th).

In the slow-motion video, Timberlake stands at the driving range and prepares to hit the ball. His brave caddy stands in front of him a few feet away.

Timberlake's swing launches the ball directly at his caddy, but the trajectory eventually takes it up and over his head. "Driving range goofball. #ATTProAm" Timberlake wrote in the caption.

Timberlake's out on the links as part of AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (via PGA Tour). Hopefully, his time on the golf course goes much better than last time. A man was arrested after slapping Timberlake in the face while he was playing at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe in July. Watch the clip here.
