Rihanna's followed up "FourFiveSeconds" with the second single from her upcoming eighth studio album. It's called "Bitch Better Have My Money," a reference to the 1991 AMG album (and song) of the same name.

Built To Spill – “Living Zoo” Video

By Caitlin White / March 26, 2015
About a month ago Built To Spill announced their first album in six years, Untethered Moon, and shared lead single "Living Zoo." Today, they've premiered a video for the song directed by Jordan Minkoff, and it's a campy, tongue-in-cheek riff on a much-anticipated big trip. In a very "Bill & Ted" fashion, the… More »
