Ed Sheeran and Eminem Release 'River' Video

(Radio.com) Eminem and Ed Sheeran have teamed up to explore the meaning of love in the dramatic new video for "River" which was released on Wednesday.

The clip finds Slim Shady in the middle of a love triangle as he fights and makes up with a love interest "Sue" (played by actress Sarati, most recently seen on FOX series Lethal Weapon) who is also dealing with an unstable ex-husband, "Trevor." She shows up as the voice of a therapist trying help all three navigate the treacherous rivers of their strained and damaged relationships.

Eminem and Sheeran both also appear performing the song, raging in a dilapidated hotel room and outside in a pouring rain storm. "What the song means to me is something I had to get off my chest," Eminem says at the culmination of the stormy visual.

The video was directed by Emil Nava who helmed Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" and Calvin Harris and Rihanna's video for "This is What I Came For." Watch it here.

(Radio.com) Drake's philanthropic spree is still in full swing. After showering Miami with more than $200,000 from grocery stores to high schools, the rapper has struck again with yet another act of selfless charity for a local resident.

Drake teamed up with Pittsburgh Steelers' star wide receiver, Antonio Brown, to treat Miami resident Odelie Paret to a $10,000 shopping spree. Paret, a housekeeper at famous Miami Beach hotel the Fontainebleau,was surprised by Drake and Brown after getting off her work shift earlier this month (Feb. 6).

First, she was treated to a full spa treatment at the hotel's luxurious facilities, followed by a lavish meal at steakhouse StripSteak by Michael Mina. After dinner, Paret and a friend were whisked off to a local mall to discover their mysterious benefactors for the day: Drake and Brown.

"I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, 'Drake!' " Paret told the Miami Tribune this week. 'It made me happy. I thank him so much."

After being stunned by the information that she had 45 minutes to buy whatever she wanted without a monetary limit, Paret eventually picked out a pair of shoes, a Valentino handbag, four perfumes -- including one for her son -- and splurged on a $6,000, 18-karat, white gold necklace with diamonds.

Brown captured the moment for Snapchat, depicting himself and Drake hanging out in the store. See the video here.

(Conqueroo) Omnivore Recordings have announced an April 13th release date for Don Gibson's the best of the Hickory Records Years (1970-1978), which is a definitive compilation of country star's peak period. We were sent the following details:

The new volume contains the Nashville Songwriters' Hall of Fame inductee and Grand Ole Opry member's #1 Country hit "Woman (Sensuous Woman)"

When Don Gibson signed to Hickory Records in 1970, he was already a weathered music industry veteran, successful songwriter and compelling performer. Sixteen of his singles on RCA Victor with producer Chet Atkins reached the country Top 10 between 1958 and 1969, but by the end of the 1960s, his album sales were dwindling. Gibson joined Hickory Records, part of Nashville's Acuff-Rose publishing empire, at the invitation of executive Wesley Rose, who had first signed him to a publishing deal at Acuff-Rose in 1955. Already serving as Don's manager and publisher, Rose would now be Don's producer and label head too. Read more here.
