Following up on their previous bizarre video for “Evil Friends,” Portugal. The Man‘s music video for “Purple Yellow Red And Blue” couldn’t be any more off the walls. The song will be featured on PTM’s forthcoming album, Evil Friends, which will hit stores early into this summer through Atlantic Records.

Lupe Fiasco Talks Violence In Media

Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter last night to rant about violence in the media and especially music industry life. Read what he had to say below and let UTG know what you thought!

Violent music (and all violent media) effectively says its “ok” to be violent. It provides positive reinforcement for negative actions. If you rap and make violent music then own up to it. Stop hiding behind “art imitating life” as a way to evade the guilt. “How the hell you gonna tell this man not 2 be violent?, Cuz he dont need to go the same route that

Wiz Khalifa Ft. Akon

MUSIC VIDEO: Wiz Khalifa Ft. Akon – “Let It Go”

Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa has teamed up with Akon to release the visuals for his single “Let It Go” and it packs a punch.

The video shows a couple of boxers rising the ranks and working hard to fulfill their dreams. Practice makes perfect in this case! This song comes off of Khalifa’s latest album, O.N.I.F.C., which arrived back in December of last year through Atlantic Records. Purchase right here.

Trey Songz 2013

MUSIC VIDEO: Trey Songz – “Fumble”

R&B superstar Trey Songz has unleashed the visuals for his song “Fumble” and can be viewed here.

The video is pretty simplified, with spliced live footage of the artist as well as some shots of him in an empty room. It shows Trey Songz wants the message to be heard through the song and not crazy clips of house parties or hoards of women chasing him.

This song comes off of Songz’s latest release, Chapter V, which hit stores last August through Songbook / Atlantic Records. Purchase the effort here.…

Report: T.I. Is Angling For A $75 Million Contract

Bear in mind this is a dispatch from TMZ. So, grain of salt and all that, but still.

What we do know for sure: T.I.’s 10 year deal with Atlantic ran its course about a month ago. Since then, T.I. has been shopping around for a new label, as is his wont. T.I. is also demanding a lot of buck for his hip-hop bang, outlining a multi-album deal with a $75 million price tag.

What will T.I.’s new label be getting out of him for that paper? From TMZ:

- 3 albums
- 10-20 percent of publishing, touring, merchandise,


REVIEW: Bruno Mars – Unorthodox Jukebox

Artist: Bruno Mars
Album: Unorthodox Jukebox
Genre: Pop, r’n’b
Label: Atlantic

Forgive me for this, but swoon. ‘Swoon’ is the only word I can think of to sum up this album. Jo March once dramatically fell from a carriage crying, “If only I were the swooning type,” and I’ve long agreed with her – at least until Bruno Mars came along. The diminutive Hawaiian has a way with his music. It’s quite ridiculous really, because he’s not doing anything new. He apes the crooners of yesteryear with a sleeker brand of contemporary pop, mixing in isolated samples of other genres …

Ed Sheeran 2012

STREAM: Ed Sheeran – “Give Me Love” Remixes

One of my favorite break out artists is Ed Sheeran. He’s ginger haired, Halifax born, well humored, and he has one hell of a voice.

He reached commercial success with “+”, his début full length from Atlantic Records. The success garnered from this and several International tours caught the eye of 2012 Olympic Ceremony Director Danny Boyle. Ed closed out the Olympics in his trademark hoodie and jeans singing Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.”

He’s not slowing down either. Ed will be accompanying Taylor Swift on her US Tour in support of Red, on which he …
