Kelly Clarkson Delivers New Track 'I've Loved You Since Forever'

(Radio.com) Last year, Today Show anchor Hoda Kotb announced that she adopted a baby daughter, Haley Joy, and the famed TV host wrote a children's book to celebrate the life milestone.

I've Loved You Since Forever is the title and Hoda's recruited her famous friend Kelly Clarkson to sing the eponymous song that accompanies the book. "I've Loved You Since Forever" made its world premiere Thursday morning on Today.

"Before birds flew over rainbows and monkeys swung on trees/ There was you, and there was me/ Before the sun set in the sky and honey came from bees/ There was you, and there was me," Clarkson sang.

Hoda's publisher HarperCollins calls I've Loved You Since Forever "a celebratory and poetic testament to the timeless love felt between parent and child." The book, which features illustrations by Suzie Mason, debuted this week. Watch Kelly's performance here.

Camila Cabello Releases 'Never Be the Same' Video

(Radio.com) "Never Be the Same" is the second single from Camila Cabello's self-titled debut studio album, striking a darker and moodier pitch than her previous hit "Havana." Now the singer dropped a stylish music video to accompany the song.

The video combines grainy home-movie style clips of Camila in a hotel room with more polished, fashion-forward clips. In a contemporary red outfit she poses against giant space rocks while in others she preens around a large metallic sculpture. It's an artsy departure from the "Havana" video's cute romantic comedy structure.

"The video is supposed to visually represent all the different ways love makes you feel," Cabello tweeted. "So all the scenes are different sides to that feeling." Watch the video for "Never Be the Same" here.

Madonna Reportedly Teaming Up With Kim Kardashian

(Radio.com) One is the queen of pop, the other is the queen of reality television. They fight crime! Joking aside, Madonna and Kim Kardashian have at least one shared passion — looking their best.

In recent months, Madonna has launched her MDNA skincare line. Kim has been a fixture of the beauty industry for years. The duo (who have both, in their own ways, collaborated with Kanye West) sat down for a talk about their beauty projects. Billboard and W magazine even speculate that a joint line is in the works.

Madonna shared a teaser of the conversation with Kim on Twitter with the caption "When Worlds Collide." "The next minute I was having a serious chat about skin care and beauty with @KimKardashian! Fun Day," she wrote. See teasers from their chat here.

Singled Out: Kate Usher & The Sturdy Souls

Kate Usher & The Sturdy Souls released their debut single 'Halfway' today (March 9th) and to celebrate we asked Kate to share the story behind the track with us:

The lyrics to this song came together rather quickly, which isn't usually the case for me. I was backpacking through South East Asia with my two girlfriends in 80 degree weather, completely exhausted after 35 hours spent traveling. We were on foot and Jill kept saying "we're halfway there". We continued on. Deliriously, I read the spray paint on the walls to busy my mind as we walked along. My mind started to run as I developed an existential feeling of being halfway through life.

The song is really about feeling halfway through life, at 24 years old, Halfway, and feeling confused with a constant notion of wanting to "run". Searching for happiness, as one can't see it but they feel it. Confusion seems to be a theme at my age within my generation. The song embodies the concept that we do things we shouldn't out of fear, yet we continue to trudge on through our mistakes.

I stopped walking, pulled out my journal, and the lyrics practically wrote themselves. A month later in California with my guitarist Kevin, I sang the words over his chord progression and the song was born.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!

Lorde Reveals New Portrait By 'Melodrama' Cover Artist

(Radio.com) Lorde's 2017 album Melodrama earned a GRAMMY nomination for album of the year and the unforgettable cover art was worthy of its own award. Using deep blues and warm red tones, painter Sam McKinniss depicted a troubled-looking Lorde in bed. On Instagram, Lorde shared a second portrait painted by McKinniss.

"I see myself so clearly in this picture," Lorde wrote on Instagram. On Twitter, she wrote, "When Sam paints me I see myself in sharp focus, emotions fully crystallized."

The new portrait depicts Lorde upright, holding a microphone and glancing to the side. Again, McKinniss captures something somewhat unsettling under the surface of the singer's expression. Lorde explained that the image on which the painting is based comes from a challenging time.

'When this photo was taken I was fragile, anxious; feeling raw and exposed in my practice, newly 21 and looking for a sign," she wrote. "I see all that and more here. Thank you, Sam."

Lorde's currently on tour in North America with Run the Jewels--she's unveiled unheard Melodrama songs and Frank Ocean covers on the road, so far. See the new portrait here.

Is Zayn Malik Rocking A Harry Potter Tattoo?

(Radio.com) It's been 11 years since the final Harry Potter book hit stores and seven since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 opened in theaters. Yet the franchise remains alive and well for superfans around the world, particularly those who grew up with the fantasy world of Hogwarts — like Zayn Malik.

This week, someone running a Zayn fan account noticed the former One Direction singer's leg has some fresh ink that resembles a screenshot from one of the Harry Potter movies.

The tattoo in question appears to be a rendering of supervillain Lord Voldemort (played by Ralph Fiennes in the films), with his wand raised menacingly.

The speculation is based on grainy paparazzi photos taken of Zayn in Miami. The artist hasn't shared a clear photo of the tattoo or explained its meaning. Still, the digital sleuths in Zaynworld present a pretty compelling theory. See pics of Zayn's new ink here.

Hip-Hop Classic Featured In 'Luke Cage' Season 2 Teaser

(Radio.com) Luke Cage is back, and he's deadly serious. The second season of the Netflix/Marvel series launches on June 22, with the release date revealed in a brief but explosive new teaser.

In the show's upcoming season, Cage has become a local hero in Harlem, with a growing reputation around town as a genuine superhero. "But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can't save," reads the official synopsis. "With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain."

The explosive visuals in the clip come with an equally bombastic soundtrack, powered by a booming classic hip-hop beat and rhymes from one of hip-hop's most influential pioneers. The track is "I Ain't No Joke," the timeless 1987 hit by legendary rap duo, Eric B. & Rakim.

The sparse, minimal track courtesy of producer Eric B. set the stage for rapper Rakim to deliver his rock-hard rhymes in clear, concise fashion. Rakim's groundbreaking lyricism on the track was augmented by the fact that he made a conscious decision to keep it clean and free of all profanity.

"I can get real crazy with rhymes, but they ain't gonna play it all day, and that's what's gonna get you paid: people constantly hearin' it on radio," Rakim told Spin back in 1987. "I could make real stupid s— that they'll only play on the weekend, then they'll have to bleep half the record out! But, you know, I ain't livin' like that. I'm gettin' paid, I wanna get paid."

Johnson wrote: "We're grateful to you all and if you ever need anything, I got your back." In the video, Johnson says: "This past Saturday night something happened to me and my family that I would never want to happen to any of you guys out there.

"To all you mommies and daddies out there, when emergencies like this happen, I would just highly recommend that you stay as calm and as focused as possible," adding, "because our little babies, energetically, they pick up on what we're putting out, especially in times of stress." Read more here.

(Radio.com) While a photo is worth a thousand words, this one looks like the genesis of the hottest women-only tour of the modern era featuring Lana Del Rey, Marina and the Diamonds, Florence and the Machine and FKA Twigs.
