Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

Will Smith Recorded “Seven or Eight” Songs with Kanye West

The rumor mill has been circulating word of Will Smith and Kanye West recording in the studio together for years, but it seems that may actually be truth. As Consequence of Sound reports, the Fresh Prince recently stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. “I spent a week or so with ‘Ye and we went into the studio a couple of times and he’s trying to get my gassed up,” he said, adding he doesn’t “want to say, ‘Yeah I’m gonna do it!’ and then get in there and suck. I’m going to stay cautiously optimistic.”

“With ‘Dope Walk’ I wanted to bring back kids dancing and having fun again,” the 26-year-old wordsmith explained. “That’s how it used to be in Harlem. I remember everybody Harlem-shaking and ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’-ing. Those were some of the most fun and memorable times in my life.”

Stelios Phili, the song’s producer, drew inspiration …

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …

Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney Drop “FourFiveSeconds” Video

Less than two weeks after sharing their surprising collaborative single, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney have joined forces once more to deliver the official video for “FourFiveSeconds.”

Set against a white backdrop with contrast turned up high enough to cast everything in a bit of shadow, the visuals accompanying “FourFiveSeconds” play into the single’s cover art quite well. Rihanna appears first, dancing and singing as the music builds, then later her collaborators join her on screen. It’s a simple clip, but an effective one. You can view the video below:…

Big Sean Drops “Blessings” Featuring Drake & Kanye West

Detroit native Big Sean recently announced plans to title his new album Dark Sky Paradise, and late last night he revealed the album’s latest single. The song, which features appearances from both Drake and Kanye West is titled “Blessings.” You can stream the track, in full at the end of this post.

Any time three powerhouse rappers get on a track together there is bound to be some debate over who rode the beat best, and anyone familiar with Big Sean’s catalog knows his guests often bring the heat (Kendrick‘s “Control” verse proved that). Sean holds his …

Kanye West Drops “Only One” Video

Kanye West has shared two new songs so far in 2015, and both have showcased surprisingly new sides of his dynamic persona. One of those songs now has a video, and earlier this week Ellen helped Yeezus share those visuals with the world.

It’s hard to believe anyone who cares about Kanye West has yet to hear “Only One.” The song, which was released at the the top of the new year, is written by West from the perspective of his deceased mother. It’s a ballad of sorts, with Beatles member Paul McCartney playing keys to accompany Kanye’s soft croon. …

Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney Just Dropped a New Song Called “FourFiveSeconds”

Out of nowhere, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney just dropped a new song. The track, called “FourFiveSeconds,” is three minutes of inter-tangled talent that sounds like a stripped-down studio recording, much of which is dominated by Rihanna’s soulful return to the music world. If this is the song Kanye played for radio programmers, we fully support this one getting major airplay.

“FourFiveSeconds” is much more heartfelt than the combination of the three may lead you to expect. McCartney provides the rhythm and backing music on acoustic guitar while Rihanna takes over for most of the verses, occasionally …

Kanye West Drops “Only One” Featuring Paul McCartney

It’s a new year and anything is possible, including a collaborative album from two of music’s biggest living icons.

Late last night, Kanye West surprised the world when he released a new track titled “Only One.” The song is the result of a recent studio collaboration between West and Paul McCartney which, according to a press release dispersed early this morning, will likely produce additional material in the coming months. To be specific, the press release describes today’s single as “the first publicly available recording from what has become a prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.”

Madonna Rebel Heart

Madonna Announces New Album ‘Rebel Heart’ Feat. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Diplo

When Madonna‘s demos leaked earlier this week, she was rightfully devastated. The pop icon called it an “artistic rape” and a “form of terrorism,” but now she’s fighting back by announcing the album officially and dropping six tracks to stream.

Her new album, titled Rebel Heart, drops March 10 via Interscope and sees help from Kanye West, Diplo, and Nicki Minaj (who hops on the fiercely titled “Bitch I’m Madonna”). Supposedly, Madonna also worked with Sophie, Blood Diamonds, DJ Dahi, and maybe even Ariel Pink. More of the album’s songs will be out on February 9.
