The premiere of Glen Campbell's farewell concert documentary at the Nashville Film Festival on Friday will be a bittersweet affair. The 77-year-old country crooner will not be able to attend the screening because he was recently moved into a care facility for Alzheimer's disease.
At age 22, the "double divas of Dublin" are ready to be taken seriously. And Yahoo Music is thrilled to present the online premiere of their mature new electropop track!
Thursday night, Dexter Roberts went home on "American Idol," leaving us with a top six featuring quite a few rockers and singer-songwriters. So who better give his thoughts on this season than the winner of perhaps the most guitar-troubadour-centric "Idol" season ever, Lee DeWyze?
Even One Direction haters will think their Ben Winston-directed video for "You & I" is cool. The pop quintet premiered Friday the video for the fourth single from their "Midnight Memories" album. The ballad Harry Styles describes as "a love song" uses special effects to present the group's uniformity.
We're very excited for the upcoming release of Dolly Parton's 42nd — that's right, forty-second — studio album, "Blue Smoke." Not only does it feature a song with Willie Nelson and covers of classics by Bob Dylan and Bon Jovi, but it also reunites Dolly with her dear pal Kenny Rogers on a duet called "You Can't Make Old Friends."
Since "support your local independent record store" could always use a bigger boost than a 99-cent sale, Record Store Day is back with another flurry of exclusive releases from humble indie-rockers and pop superstars alike. From the hundreds of releases that will be available for the first time (and in some cases, last time) on [...]
This week on "American Idol," Jessica Meuse, one of the few contestants this season who'd never been in the bottom two or three, received such a blatant busing, the show might as well have been sponsored by Greyhound.
Jimmer Podrasky wrapped up his residency Wednesday night at Lucy's 51 in Toluca Lake, Calif. to promote his excellent return effort "The Would-Be Plans" by performing with the Rave-Ups. That's the same band he led back in the '80s when they landed a spot in "Pretty in Pink" and were inexplicably left off the soundtrack. [...]
Ever since her breakout single "Gucci Gucci" went viral back in 2011, rapper/designer/blogger/DJ/tastemaker Kreayshawn has remained an undeniable It-Girl on dashboards across the Tumblr-sphere. The Oakland-born creative (real name: Natassia Zolot) shares content on the daily to her personal Tumblr — among them emoji-emblazoned selfies, all-neon everything, and '90s-throwback GIFs.
Thanks to the magic of the old-school VHS technology and advances in new-school digitization, the Internet is awesomely awash in grainy, incriminating "Star Search" footage. Here are the best clips from the series' most notable loser and/or future stars.
Brutal honesty makes for great songwriting, but it can be a recipe for disaster when it comes to the media. This week, hip-hop legend Ice Cube and Def Jam Recording artist August Alsina experienced a backlash after making questionable – though honest – comments during interviews.
This Wednesday, the "American Idol" top seven contestants performed each other's song picks, and surprisingly, no one threw anyone under the bus. Actually, the judges totally threw Jessica Meuse under the bus. But the contestants all played nice with each other.
When Southern California's Coachella festival expanded to two identical consecutive weekends a couple years ago, the fest's participating artists were faced with a conundrum: What to do with themselves during their days off in Cali between weekends one and two? But Los Angeles tastemaker radio station KCRW solved that problem for some of Coachella's acts by hosting private "mini-Coachella" showcases at famed engineer/mixer Bob Clearmountain's refreshingly air-conditioned, no-sunscreen-required Apogee's Berkeley Street Studios.
With its lyrics about "Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece, jet planes, islands and tigers on a gold leash," it may surprise you to learn that Lorde's monster hit "Royals" wasn't inspired by P. Diddy or some other bling-loving rapper, but a legendary baseball player named George Brett.
This Wednesday on "American Idol," the unprecedented theme was "Competitors' Picks," meaning the top seven contestants chose songs for each other. The potential for sabotage was great, but everyone played nice. No one picked "Let's Get It On" for reluctant heartthrob Sam Woolf, or "My Humps" for stone-faced Jessica Meuse, or Justin Bieber's "Baby" for macho rocker Caleb Johnson, etc.
Luke Bryan was shut out at the recent Academy of Country Music Awards, going 0-3, but he's doing great on this week's Hot 100. Bryan has two songs scaling the top 20. "Play It Again" leaps from #26 to #14 in its fifth week. Florida Georgia Line's "This Is How We Roll," on which he [...]
Pharrell Williams's "Happy" tops the 4 million mark in digital sales this week. It's Williams' second song to reach that plateau in a little more than eight months. Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (on which Williams was featured, along with T.I.) hit 4M in August. (It currently stands at 6,995,000). As you have probably surmised, "Happy" [...]
The "Frozen" soundtrack logs its 10th week at #1 on The Billboard 200, which ties "The Lion King" for the longest run at #1 ever for a soundtrack from an animated movie. Both albums spawned Oscar-winning ballads: "Let It Go" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," respectively. And "Frozen" will probably stay on top [...]
Last night, the "Voice" top 20 Playoffs concluded with the Team Usher semifinals, after weeks of battles, and now we finally have our top 12. Is the best possible top 12 Season 6 could have had? Would it have been a better top 12 if America had had the chance to vote? These topics are up for debate.
Back in 2007, Sean “Diddy” Combs teamed with Jay Z and 50 Cent to create a song titled “I Get Money: Forbes 1-2-3 Billion Dollar Remix.” Less than a decade later, rappers are closing in on ten-figure fortunes, and he’s the nearest of the bunch.
