Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys Release Video

(Radio.com) Florida Georgia Line have teamed up with the Backstreet Boys for the music video for their new single "God, Your Mama and Me." The video for the sweet ballad has all seven men planning a special romantic day to surprise their wives.

At the start of the video FGL's Tyler Hubbard says he's about to meet his wife on the beach while the camera cuts to a homemade video of bandmate Brian Kelley telling his wife that he loves her.

Then, all five members of the Backstreet Boys share the surprises they have in store for their wives later that night. The homemade video clips of each man sharing a special day with his lady are spliced together with the seven singers seated around a snow covered bonfire as they sing the romantic track.

"God, Your Mama and Me" is Florida Georgia Line's latest single off their most recent album, Dig Your Roots. The fact that BSB are featured on the track is a dream come true for the duo, who cite the band as an early influence.

'Gotta take it all the way back to sixth grade. My first concert at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida, was ' Backstreet Boys," Kelley admitted in a press release. 'We've been digging our roots and influences, and paying homage to what's gotten us here. When I first heard it, it sounded like a modern-day Backstreet Boys song. We got to know Nick [Carter] and the boys really well and are blessed to have them on this track."

'Well, this makes a lot of sense why we are a duo," Hubbard reasoned. 'I was also in the sixth grade and remember going to the record store to buy my first CD ' Backstreet Boys!" Watch the video here.

Eric Church Fights Ticket Scalping Bots

(Radio.com) In an effort to fight online scalping bots, Eric Church has canceled 25,000 tickets originally purchased by such programs. It's the latest way the country singer has attempted to ensure tickets get into the hands of fans rather than pass through a third-party system.

Bots make money by scooping up tickets as soon as they go on sale and then selling them to fans for an inflated amount. "All of this is fraud," he said about scalping bots (via Billboard).

In the past, Church has tried things like paperless ticketing and better screening his fan club purchases since high-end seats are often available there first. "We're getting better at identifying who the scalpers are," Church added about this new method of canceling suspicious bulk purchases. Read more here.

Jennifer Lopez Sidesteps Drake Romance Questions

(Radio.com) Jennifer Lopez continued edging around whether or not she's dating Drake. Lopez spoke with Ellen Tuesday afternoon (February 21st), and continued avoiding defining their relationship status.

Asked who she spent Valentine's Day with, Lopez cheekily responded that she spent it with her audience because she'd performed that evening. Ellen put up a picture of Drake and Lopez, and asked about after the show. "No, he's off on tour right now," she said.

"I don't date younger men," Lopez explained. "It's not like you have to be younger. It's not about that. I just meet people and if I go out with them, I got out with them. And if I like them and I like them. If I don't, I don't. It's about the person. It's about who they are. It has nothing to do with age." Read more here.

Katy Perry Releases 'Chained To The Rhythm' Video

(Radio.com) Katy Perry has released a new music video for her latest single "Chained to the Rhythm," which features Skip Marley. The new video stars Perry dressed in '50s fashion and is the kind of American dream spoof that she displayed during her eye-popping performance at the GRAMMYs last week.

The effect-filled clip takes place at the fictional amusement park "Oblivia" and features Americana-themed rides that aren't so perfect: There are little houses dangling from strings that spin a little too rapidly, a heart-shaped rollercoaster with a piece of track missing and a swing called "No Place Like Home," which scoops up couples and flings them high into the air.

Also look for a hamster wheel on which participants run until the collapse from exhaustion, and a 3D movie that stars guest Skip Marley, who literally pops out of the screen.

"Chained to the Rhythm" was shot during three days in January at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. the clips was directed by GRAMMY-winner Matthew Cullen (Jay-Z, Beck), who also helmed the videos for "Dark Horse" and "California Gurls." It was produced by Danny Lockwood, Rob Newman, Ben Leiser and Javier Jimenez. Watch the clip here.

Miguel And DJ Premier Release New Track '2 LOVIN U'

(Radio.com) DJ Premier and Miguel shared studio time in 2014 working on a collaboration that never fully materialized until now. Rumors and snippets of a song called "Damned" circulated, but it didn't make the tracklist for Miguel's album.

Now, the song is available in full under a new title, "2 LOVIN U." DJ Premier issued a press release to confirm what fans are listening to is the original song and dropped the audio on SoundCloud.

"The snippet you heard on Miguel's Instagram, mine is the original," said Premier. "Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but a rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single. Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board." Listen here.

Dr. Luke Files Emails Refuting Kesha's Abuse Claims

(Radio.com) In the latest development in the legal battle between Kesha and Dr. Luke, the producer has filed a new motion which includes several emails regarding Kesha sent by her management team, and one email between Dr. Luke and Kesha herself. Dr. Luke's legal team claim these emails provide needed context.

Last week Kesha filed a motion containing an email exchange between Dr. Luke and Kesha's manager Monica Cornia which painted the producer as insensitive to the singer's concerns about her weight.

In that exchange, Corina tells Luke that Kesha was in tears over his comments regarding her breaking a juice cleanse. Dr. Luke expressed concern that "A-list songwriters and producers are reluctant to give Kesha their songs because of her weight," and asks the manager to "please keep her on the diet." Corina responds asking the producer be "supportive and helpful rather than critical." Read more here.
