John Legend Denies Tabloid's Robbery Report

(Radio.com) John Legend has denied tabloid reports that his luggage was stolen by a livery cab driver last week at Kennedy International Airport in New York. Legend took to social media to set the record straight.

Legend shot down the report via Twitter, writing, "This story is untrue. We use a trusted car service and they did not rob me. Our Delta greeter made a mistake and left a bag on the cart.

"The bag was taken because it was left unattended. The airport police caught the person who took it (on video) and retrieved my bag. Thanks to the airport police/security. One could say it's been 'handled'." Read more here.

Drake Does Not Respect Kanye West's Disses

(Radio.com) Kanye West's career has been littered with controversial statements about fellow artists, including Taylor Swift, to Beyonce and Jay Z. 2016 was the year when it all seemed to go off the rails, culminating in a canceled tour and mental health intervention.

Through the drama, Drake has been ambivalent about Kanye's temperamental brilliance: Despite continued efforts to collaborate, he's been on the receiving end of some bitter public remarks.

"I think everybody has their own little things going on," Drake said in a web radio interview. "I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time, because in the same breath, I went from being ' like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly sh–ing on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much."

The Canadian rapper discussed balancing compassion for West's ordeal with personal and professional boundaries. "I don't really even understand the point you're trying to make but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it, I don't respect it at all," he said. "You know, because I feel like me and Khaled are just good people. I'm not sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night. And yeah I accept what you're going through, and I just go and continue working on my own thing." Read more here.

John Mayer Reveals Which Pop Star He Wrote 'Still Feel Like Your Man' About

(Radio.com) "Still Feel Like Your Man" is a standout track on The Search for Everything Wave 2, the second part of John Mayer's two-part album. In an interview with The New York Times, Mayer confesses that the song was written with a very particular ex in mind -- Katy Perry.

"Who else would I be thinking about?" he said. 'And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."

When he spoke to Rolling Stone earlier this year about the album, he described "Still Feel Like Your Man" as his "little engine that could. The title itself had lyrics blowing out of it from every corner'[I wrote it] almost like a treatment for a movie." Read more here.

Mariah Carey And Remy Ma Release 'I Don't' Remix

(Radio.com) Mariah Carey has released a remix of "I Don't," which features Remy Ma. To the uninitiated, that might not seem like a big deal. But the symbolism behind the collaboration is unmistakable.

Carey and Nicki Minaj have been beefing since Carey mentioned on American Idol that Minaj has a distinct lack of number one hits. Meanwhile, Minaj has been on Remy Ma's blacklist ever since she badmouthed her song "Make Love."

So, a collaboration between Carey and Remy Ma seemed like a golden opportunity to let the sparks fly. But while the shade they're throwing at the veteran diva is undeniable, the song is pretty straightforward--at least at first. 'You go hard for them, you don't ever ever wanna be apart from them," Remy raps. After that, it's up to the listener to interpret what she means: 'You hold them soft and still go hard for them, but instead of lookin' at how far we've come I'm regrettin' it, damn, are you done?"Listen to the "I Don't" remix here.

Ed Sheeran Soothes Crying Baby In Viral Video

(Radio.com) There's something about Ed Sheeran that soothes even the fussiest baby, at least according to a new viral video. Gareth Nye tweeted a video of his four-month-old daughter Gracie crying until he begins playing Sheeran's "Shape Of You" in the background.

To be fair, the song's intro does have a childlike instrumental quality to it. Speaking with the Liverpool Echo, Nye explained that Gracie was born with hip dysplasia and must wear a corrective device all the time. Although she's been suited with the device since she was two-weeks-old, sometimes it upsets her, hence the crying.

But at least now her parents have a secret weapon in their back pocket. "She loves all [Sheeran's] songs," Nye said, "but 'Shape of You' and 'Perfect' from his new album seem to be her favorites. I think she's his youngest fan!" (via NME). Read more here.

PartyNextDoor inserts himself from the very get-go, dropping a slick verse before handing it over to Mars for the official "start." "Let's hit Miami, Biscayne / Might let you change your name (for the night)/ Why why why?/ So you can act a fool for a night/ Oh, that's right/ Girl, I know the tricks/ Girl, I know the tricks/ But that happen to be the s— I like," he sings in the opening seconds.

Travis Scott Releases 'Birds in the Trap' Short Film

(Radio.com) Travis Scott praised Beyonce as a fellow Houstonite in a recent British GQ Style interview: It seems he's borrowing another page from her book with a new short film. His expressive, Birds in the Trap is a meditation on life in Detroit that takes a turn when he transforms into a Robocop-style cyborg.

Our protagonist, played by Scott, is going about his life in Detroit--seeing neighbors, arguing with his girlfriend who warns, "Your ego's gonna get you in trouble." Then suddenly, a car accident lands him in the hospital and he's reborn as an android.

It's a high-concept narrative with plenty of ambiguity, but the gorgeous visuals and heavy themes provide a new slant on the crumbling Rust Belt experience. Read more here.

Desiigner Releases New Track Called 'Holy Ghost'

(Radio.com) After released the full version of his track "Outlet" in early February, Desiigner is back with another new track. The rapper shared "Holy Ghost" on his SoundCloud account last Friday (March 24th).

The song references everything from The Lion King to Drake's new playlist project More Life. "Mustafa, I been feeling like Mustafa/ My son is Simba, n—–," he raps with his machine gun sound effects punctuating the track.

Desiigner questions everyone trying to take advantage of his fame on the chorus. "You say you got it/ You say you know me/ How you get it, how you got it?/ You say you 'bout it/ You say you know me/ How I get it out the project?" Desiigner sings. When he invokes the title, it's hard to distinguish his voice from Future's. Incidentally, for anyone drawing parallels between the two, Future took aim at Desiigner on "Zoom" off his self-titled album. Listen to the explicit "Holy Ghost" here.

Jason Aldean Talks 'They Don't Know' Ahead Of ACM Awards

(Radio.com) Jason Aldean, who is nominated for the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, talks about "They Don't Know," the title track of his 2016 album.

"They Don't Know" was written for Aldean by Kurt Allison, Jaron Boyer and Josh Mirenda, but it expresses a sentiment that Aldean has felt often when seeing how rural people are portrayed in the media.

Aldean tells Radio.com, "Being where I'm from in Georgia, growing up on the outskirts of Macon, you have people that — for lack of a better term — come from [air quotes] 'the big city,' they have a tendency to sort of look down on things that they really don't understand and don't know. I think that happens a lot."

He points to films — which are rarely directed or produced by people from rural communities — as a prime example. "You look at an L.A. movie producer who is directing a movie about small towns, and it's like [you see] every stereotype you could imagine. Why? Because they don't understand. They've never lived in those places; they've never experienced those things. People that look down on something or frown upon something they really don't understand or don't know about it. And to me, the song says it perfectly, and I can relate to that just growing up in Georgia where I did." Read more here.
