Tame Impala's Kevin Parker still seems to be getting used to the idea that he's the man behind one of the world's most exciting bands. At Coachella this past weekend, he kept talking about how nervous he was, playing the festival's largest stage just before AC/DC.

By Chris DeVille / April 15, 2015 - 4:30 pm
A maddeningly short six-second snippet of Kendrick Lamar rapping over Kanye West's "All Day" emerged last week, and now the full song is here.

For a while there, I was worried about Chance The Rapper. He'd come to national prominence in 2013 with Acid Rap, a mixtape that showed ridiculous levels of promise but also the sort of tendency toward self-indulgence that ruins a lot of rappers' careers. Chance's voice was a headlong hamster-squeak, a self-consciously grating yammer, and… More »

Last year, the provincial government of Ontario granted Drake $300,000 to help fund OVO Fest through their "Celebrate Ontario" program.

It's surprising to learn that the only significant acting credit associated with Annie Lennox is a role in a Robert Altman-directed adaptation of a Harold Pinter play. If you've watched any of the videos she made as a member of the mega-selling pop duo Eurythmics or for her solo albums, particularly those created with the… More »
