Natalie Imbruglia Covering The Cure Is Heaven On Earth

Remember Natalie Imbruglia? Our friends outside of America have watched the pop songstress lead an incredible and diverse career in the spotlight, but here in The States the singer-songwriter hasn’t had a major hit since “Torn” dominated the charts in 1997. I can’t say whether or not a time will ever come when Imbruglia reaches those heights of celebrity here in the U.S. again, but I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that Natalie is still churning out tracks that will make you feel all the feels known to man.

Last week, Natalie Imbruglia released an album of …

SINGLE REVIEW: One Direction – “Drag Me Down”

Artist: One Direction
Track: “Drag Me Down”
Album: TBA

A year after “Steal My Girl” ushered in an era where the members of One Direction were focused on songs built for stadiums, “Drag Me Down” has arrived to flip the script once more.

It’s all about the energy. From the moment “Drag Me Down” kicks in there is a thick bass line guiding the entire voyage that demands your legs prepare to dance. It’s a ticking time bomb of pop sensibilities that quickly builds from the infectious first verse to a pre-chorus that pulls you in to the …

Drake Buries Meek Mill With “Back To Back” Freestyle

Several days have passed since Drake responded to Meek Mill‘s claims of hiring ghostwriters with his chill, yet vicious “Charged Up” freestyle. You may have thought Meek would have responded by now, and if that’s the case you are not alone. Everyone was expecting the Maybach Music Group member to retaliate to Drake’s line, which he himself called “Baby lotion soft” over Twitter, but here we are at 9:30 AM on Wednesday and Meek remains silent.

Drake, on the other hand, has something more to say.

Raising the bar to a height I’m not sure Meek Mill has ever …

Watch Leon Bridges Perform “Coming Home” Acoustic

2015 is the year of Leon Bridges. In a time where everyone is fighting over social media about whether or not they get the opportunities or co-signs they deserve, Bridges is focused solely on resurrecting a long lost sound that is desperately needed in today’s music climate. We have been following his rise since the fall of 2014, and with the release of Coming Home in June he took yet another step towards being the international sensation we know he will eventually become.

Recently, Bridges made a trip to New York to create a unique acoustic visual for his …

Drake Just Premiered 3 New Songs On His Beats 1 Radio Show

The most talked about man in hip-hop just gave the world more reasons to keep his name in headlines for another week.

Drake just wrapped the second episode of his Beats 1 radio show, OVO Sound, and for the second week in a row he used his airtime to share some new material. Three new tracks in total were shared with fans over a two-hour period, including a response to Meek Mill‘s recent ghostwriter accusations titled “Charged Up” and a crazy remix of D.R.A.M.’s viral hit “Cha Cha.” You can stream all three tracks below.

Everyone has …

Chevy Woods & Dej Loaf Create Magic With “All Said And Done”

Two of the brightest stars in hip-hop today have finally joined forces, and the results are as good as expected.

Dej Loaf has been touching down on every notable rapper’s latest effort, and this time around it’s Chevy Woods who recruits the Detroit emcee to help make his track something special. “All Said And Done” is the kind of anthemic track made for the people who have been down with you since day one. It’s a thank you to the ride or die friends you depend on. You don’t have to say it because you already know what you mean …

Game & Drake Swap Bars About The Realities Of Fame On “100″

The Game and Drake just delivered a new single that is destined to take hip-hop by storm in no time at all.

Remember when Drake was spotted dropping a few unreleased bars to a sold out Detroit crowd late last month? That so-called freestyle was actually an unannounced preview for the Toronto native’s latest collaboration with California heavyweight The Game. “100″ finds the two top shelf emcees swapping bars that address the snakes in the grass who think they slink by unseen, as well as the reality of pursuing your dreams in a time where most feel unable to even …

The Money Pit Will Fill The Hole Left By Gatsby’s American Dream

You can cut your hair and dress better than you did in college, but deep down all your mid-oughts emo and scene kids know your heart will always be glued to your shoulder with the permanent adhesive known as Jesse Lacey’s best lyrics. I know it and you know it. Just accept it and we can move on.

Alright. We all know the best bands of that era died too soon and most of those who didn’t have done everything in their power to evolve into something more than they were when they mattered to you. I prefer the ones …

Meek Mill Joins French Montana & Chris Brown On “Poppin” Remix

It seems impossible to deny the fact rappers are seriously enjoying Atlanta newcomer Rico Richie’s street anthem “Poppin’.”

Following a series of remixes from Lil Bibby and Troy Ave, Meek Mill has joined French Montana and Chris Brown for a remix of “Poppin’” that is destined to leave your speakers smoking. It’s pretty much the Meek Mill show from beginning to end, but Montana delivers a few signature yelps of “Hanh” to remind you why he’s one of the most overused collaborators in hip-hop today. Brown is forgettable, but that is typically the case when the pop star …

Fetty Wap Drops “679″ Featuring Meek Mill And Rick Ross

“Trap Queen” superstar Fetty Wap is not taking his time in the spotlight for granted, and today he’s keeping us hooked on his unique sound by sharing a new track fans new and old are sure to love.

“679″ is the kind of radio-ready track that could further solidify Fetty Wap’s recently-earned title of Billboard chart topper. The song finds the New Jersey native going in over bass-heavy production with assistance from Maybach Music Group heavyweights Meek Mill and Rick Ross. Such features would overshadow a lesser artist, but “679″ remains Fetty’s track from beginning to end. You can …

Migos-2015-YRN

New Music: Migos – “John Wick” & “Pretty Little Lady”

Despite an ongoing legal battle that has left one member behind bars for over a month, Migos continue to share new music with fans. We shared one new song last week, and just last night two more tracks found their way online.

Produced by Deko, “John Wick” and “Pretty Little Lady” showcase two very different sides of the Migos men. The former, which takes its name from the 2014 Keanu Reeves film with the same title, lays a foundation ripe for off the cuff ego-rap that Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff make their own in no time at all. The latter, …

REVIEW: Sudden Suspension – ‘There’s A Bigger Picture Here’

Artist: Sudden Suspension
Album: There’s A Bigger Picture Here
Label: Bad Timing Records

This is the sound of growing up.

For their third EP, Indiana natives Sudden Suspension have tasked themselves with encapsulating what it feels like to grow up in 2015, along with all the challenges one encounters along the way. From getting over heartache, to learning to love yourself, there is something here for everyone who has found themselves making the often painful transition from child to adult, and it’s all conveyed through infectious pop punk too good to resist.

If the world can thank Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell …
