Migos Make Surprise Appearance With Drake at Adult Swim Event

(Radio.com) Each year, television upfronts give networks the chance to present new slates of programming to media and advertisers. The Adult Swim network's annual party fits the irreverent mold its late-night comedy lineup delivers and this year Drake headlined the show. In a surprise twist, Migos and Playboi Carti joined their famous pal onstage.

"This is a real night. This ain't no corporate s—," Drake told the crowd. 'I don't know what all those other companies are doing tonight at their upfronts, but I know what Adult Swim is doing."

Drake treated the engagement as an actual concert, not a paid one-off appearance for a heavily marketed business summit. The crowd featured young people who probably didn't care much about ad buys, anyway. In the past, the Adult Swim party has featured Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Jay Z and Kanye West.

While DeMarcus took the production reigns on the project, Rascal Flatts' touring band also joined the trio in the studio for a seamless sound fans know and love. Additionally, Rascal Flatts co-wrote several songs on the release as well as cut songs by the likes of Chris Stapleton ("Vandalized"), Josh Thompson ("Back to Us") and Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay ("Hopin' You Were Lookin'" and "Love What You're Done With the Place").

"If a song comes in, and it beats one we have written, we are the first to say, 'let's cut it,'" DeMarcus admits. "We don't really care what the critics have to say. When we make our music, we make music for the fans. And they can see and feel that." Read more here.

John Williams' Raiders of the Lost Ark Score Expanded For Reissue

Concord Music Group have announced that they will releasing an expanded two disc vinyl edition of John Williams' classic Oscar-nominated score for the legendary Indiana Jones film, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" on June 2nd. We were sent the following details:

The two-LP album will be available on 180-gram vinyl pressed at RTI (Record Technology Incorporated), and housed in a two-pocket gatefold jacket featuring original stills and artwork from the film. The audio, which features a wealth of cues not previously available on the original soundtrack LP, was cut by renowned engineer Bernie Grundman, who mastered the score for its initial release in 1981. Preorders are available here.

Composed by John Williams, and nominated for both an Academy Award and GRAMMY Award, Raiders of the Lost Ark was the only score in Stephen Spielberg's beloved series performed by the renowned London Symphony Orchestra -- which also recorded the inimitable and now ubiquitous score for Star Wars. The soundtrack is most notable for its inclusion of the iconic and instantly recognizable "Raiders March," which came to symbolize Indiana Jones, as played by Harrison Ford, and was later used in the scores for all subsequent films. This version of the album follows the track list of the 2008 expanded edition, previously only available on CD, and offers over 30-minutes of extended cues not on the original LP.
