Sam Smith, Interpol, Chvrches, Iggy Azalea Pick Their Favorite Music Of 2014 So Far
It’s always fun to learn what music your favorite musicians are listening to, and Billboard asked a shit-ton of artists who they’re liking, compiling the results into a quick-moving video. Some takeaways! Sam Smith is absolutely cool picking an album that he hasn’t heard yet: “I love Lana’s album. I haven’t heard it yet, but I love ‘West Coast.'” Lots of artists are happy to ignore the calendar, picking songs from last year or even years past. Janelle Monáe is willing to pick her own album from last year. Lots of people like the War On Drugs, as well they should. Rappers like Pharrell. Interpol are into Drake, proving that the lothario-blues connection cuts across genre lines. A$AP Ferg feels a very urgent need to work with Sia. Watch the whole video below.
Nobody mentioned the Frozen soundtrack, which means every single one of these people is straight fronting.
