The rapper posted a shirtless photo on his Tumblr account. Standing in a bathroom, Ocean looked straight into the camera while crossing his fingers. But it's what he wrote that has fans wondering if the two are going to work together. "cuz the 6 has the aux cable," Ocean shared.
"The 6" is what Drake calls Toronto, and considering Ocean's post came shortly around the time Drake posted an update about his forthcoming playlist project More Life, some believe it's a tease about a possible collaboration between the two. But it also could refer to the iPhone 6 Ocean has in his hand since the iPhone 7 no longer has a headphone jack. See the posthere.
The Chainsmokers shared the tracklist for their debut album "Memories...Do Not Open" on Instagram which revealed a previously unannounced collaboration with Florida Georgia Line entitled "Last Day Alive."

Jimmy Kimmel wrangled both of the bands for a segment of "Mash-Up Monday" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and they performed 'Our Lips Are Sealed" and 'Here it Goes Again."
The supergroup you didn't know you needed (but most certainly do) is called Ok Go-Gos, of course.Jane Wiedlin rocked cool blue hair and Belinda Carlisle held down lead vocals for the first segment, which transitioned into Ok Go's 2007 hit. They integrated the parts by harmonizing the finale. Watch the upbeat performancehere.
The song comes from the group's latest EP "What Everyone's Thinking" and the track has also ready received over 103 Million streams on Spotify and landed in the top 30 in 25 countries.
The new video was directed by Shane Drake (Panic At The Disco, Paramore) and produced by London Alley Films and shows the band "trapped on a dimly lit subway car, later to be summoned by an alluring bright light." Watch the videohere.
"Sister Sledge will continue with their 2017 concert schedule, said the group in a statement. Sister Sledge - Debbie, Kim and the Sledge family would like to express our deepest gratitude to all who have extended their love and support during this difficult and challenging time of mourning, in the wake of the passing of our beloved sister Joni Sledge."
The group, which is best known for their chart hit "We Are Family," wrote that they would carry on "in the spirit" of their late sister and vowed to continue "her legacy."
"Joni was a beautiful person, phenomenal artist and producer, a brilliant business woman and a powerhouse!" they wrote. "One of her greatest loves and joys was performing live with her family. In the spirit of Joni's powerful strength of character, zest for life and spreading joy through music, we are committed to continuing her legacy." Read morehere.
'So we're having a technical difficulty," she told her audience. 'I'm not quite sure what it is. Shall I try and tell some jokes?" The power outage silenced her band's instruments, but apparently not her mic. So the singer kept entertaining the crowd.
"Our power has gone out under the stage, so who knows how long we're going to be doing this for," she confessed. 'Shall I tell you my filthy joke despite all the children here? I need more applause than that because I might offend someone. What do you call a blonde standing on her head? A brunette with bad breath."
Minutes later the power was restored, much to her relief, and likely the parents in the crowd, too. She closed her set with the poignant "Someone Like You" but before she did she apologized once again.Read morehere.
He spoke to British GQ about the incident and assured the public (perhaps facetiously) that everything went according to plan. "I didn't fall, dude, I flew," he said. "I was floating. I don't fall. Só, nothing happened. Floating is amazing.
"It's like getting in a plane. I just flew, man. I'm a magician, like David Blaine. I could never fall. Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He's a big brother, super-talent, he's cool." Read morehere.
The new visual is set against a cityscape, and show the group waxing poetic about wanting to spend one more night with that special someone before they need to be on their way.
Shot during different times of the day, Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood each watch the sun go down from his respective perch.
Then they eventually convene to make their way to their concert, where crowds are waiting to spend "One More Night" with them. Watch ithere.
"The last time I tattooed Ed he fell asleep," the tattoo artist revealed to The Sun. "It was on his rib so it was a painful area but he was so chilled. He was snoring for 20 minutes!"
Paul has inked Sheeran's two sleeves as well as his chest. "I've pretty much covered Ed," he said about working with the pop star. "Both his arms are complete, we've done all the front of his body and out of everyone I've ever tattooed he's the most controversial because of the designs." Read morehere.
The clip begins with Fallon and Bryan wandering the New York City streets until they get hungry. "Hey, want some lunch? I'm buying," Fallon asks Bryan as they walk up to a street food cart. When asked what he wants to eat, Bryan has some trouble.
"The ah, you know . . . that thing there . . . the brown stuff," Bryan says frustrated. "Man, I'm good." When Fallon asks Bryan what's wrong, Bryan begins to share his troubles as the setting segues into the studio. "I was born in Southwest Georgia/ Always tried to make my daddy proud/ But of all the things I learned there/ Never learned to say that word out loud," Bryan sang.
During the four-minute Bryan draws a gyro in his notebook and throws it on the floor when he can't seem to pronounce the street meat. Later, Fallon tries to help him pronounce it, but Bryan confuses him so much he's not quite sure how. Watch the cliphere.
Simmons announced a new series, The Definitive History of Hip Hop, which will start production in 2017. The series will integrate "visual effects, archival footage and celebrity interviews" to tell about hip-hop's birth in the Bronx and Queens and follow its rise (via Pitchfork).
"The series gets behind the scenes of what drove the beats, the rhymes, the ideas--and the people--that so powerfully hit a chord with all of youth culture in America and around the world," Simmons stated in a press release. "It starts with the OGs of this disruptive force in entertainment, spotlights some of the lesser known artists who've fallen out of history or favor, and of course looks at the icons who are now household names whether you're in LA or London, Toledo or Tokyo."

Earlier in the day it was revealed that Flordia Georgia Line will appear on a track from The Chainsmokers debut album. Are we witnessing the beginning of new crossover genre? Will it have an acronym? Only time will tell. Check out Young's tweethere.
The song builds into an chant about pushing past doubt and finding hope even in the darkest moments. There's a touch of musical theater to the instrumentation and arrangement, which feeds into Michele's background on Broadway.
"When it came time to name my album, I settled on 'Places' because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong," Michele said in a statement. "When you perform on Broadway the word 'Places' is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. 'Places' I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from." Read morehere.
But lucky fans caught a glimpse of just how much they dig one another during Lambert's 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour stop in Bossier City, Louisiana on Sunday (March 12th).
She invited her beau onstage to sing the Faces' 1971 single "Stay With Me" and while performing together they couldn't help getting a little flirty. As soon as East walked onstage, Lambert meandered over to him and planted a kiss on his cheek. From there, things only got sweeter. They couldn't help dancing with each other throughout the song, and both wore big bright smiles.
East helped co-write several songs on Lambert's latest album The Weight of These Wings, including the duet he sang with her, "Pushin' Time." A fan in the audience captured their time together. Watch ithere.
