Stream: Skrillex Featuring Ellie Goulding – “Because”

There was a time not all that long ago when EDM innovator Skrillex was romantically linked to chart-topping pop sensation Ellie Goulding. Their love was the talk of the dance music scene, and during their time together the pair reportedly worked on a number of songs that up to this point have (at most) only been teased during live shows. That is, until now.

Ellie Goulding recently created a mix for Annie Mac, and buried amidst nearly an hour of music was one of the ‘lost’ songs from Goulding’s time with Skrillex. The track is titled “Because,” but was …

Required Listening: YG Featuring Drake – “Who Do You Love?”

YG is one of the hip-hop freshman set to take 2014 by storm, and just last night his latest smash found its way online.

Released just days after YG’s last single, “My Nigga,” went platinum, “Who Do You Love?” pairs the up and comer with Nothing Was The Same rapper Drake for a track dedicated to the beautiful women of the planet. Both emcees bring their signature edge to the track, even if the underlying meaning is rather sentimental, and the results are nothing short of platinum. You can stream “Who Do You Love?” below.

KiD CuDi Shares Details On New EP, Encourages Fans To Revisit Discography

We are almost three weeks into the new year, and if you’re anything like us then you’ve probably caught yourself wondering what KiD CuDi has been up to since the ball dropped. He ended 2013 with the news a new EP would be on the way as a precursor to his Man On The Moon 3 album, but since January 1 the Chicago native has largely kept to himself. Until now.

Taking to Twitter this weekend, KiD CuDi revealed a bunch of new details about his upcoming release plans through a series of tweets. The rapper discussed the motivation for …

WATCH: Eddie Murphy’s New Music Video For “Temporary”

Everyone can appreciate celebrities who are multi-talented. In 2014, it isn’t shocking for an actor to play music or vice versa.

Unfortunately, even athletes have gotten in on it. Shaq wanted to rap, well, many basketball players want to rap, we all remember LeBron James performing with LMFAO.

It is a breath of fresh air to watch Eddie Murphy‘s latest video for “Temporary,” which was released a few days ago. You can see Murphy playing his acoustic guitar and singing smoothly, although I don’t think the sunglasses were entirely necessary inside the studio. He performs with a …
