The Week In Pop: Meet The New Wave Of British Pop Stars

We at Stereogum have the UK on the brain this week. And while there's a big difference between "Britpop" and "British pop," this seems like an appropriate time to point out just how many singers from the motherland have been making waves on these shores. We haven't quite reached British Invasion levels of saturatio… More »

The Week In Pop: 5 Seconds Of Summer And The Evolution Of Pop-Punk Boy Bands

"She looks so perfect standing there/ In my American Apparel underwear" is the new "I like girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch." Fifteen years ago, at the height of boy-band mania, America was bombarded by LFO's "Summer Girls," in which bros with magnificently sculpted haircuts and bodacious bods sing-rapped clumsy couplets between harmonious refrains about… More »

Watch A Pretty Compelling Endorsement For Beyoncé’s Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Induction

Though it's still a ways off, the time will come some day when Beyoncé will be eligible for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Some people might object to the idea of Beyoncé ever being considered for something like that (maybe even certain people who are being inducted this year -- looking atMore »

The Week In Pop: Sam Smith’s Miraculous Voice Will Make Him A Star, But What Kind?

Among the attributes necessary for pop stardom, a powerhouse voice is not typically on the shortlist. From Madonna to Rihanna, pop singers have long been able to excel at their occupation without the ability to wail away magnificently. It's counterintuitive given that job #1 for singers is, ostensibly, singing, but there are other more important… More »

Watch Blue Ivy Totally Ruin Beyoncé’s Grammy Rehearsal

Here's something cute to start your weekend off right. Perhaps you recall that Beyoncé and Jay Z opened the Grammys telecast with a performance of "Drunk In Love." A video of Beyoncé's rehearsal (with a Jay Z body double, incidentally) has surfaced that's entertaining for reasons other than Bey's breathtaking performance. Not that… More »

The Week In Pop: Kid Cudi, The Loneliest Stoner

Even though he parted ways with G.O.O.D. Music last year, Kid Cudi will probably never make it all the way out of Kanye West's shadow. Many of us first encountered Scott Mescudi as Kanye's foil on 2008's triumphantly dour "Welcome To Heartbreak," and Cudi's ambition to transcend the confines of hip-hop has long mirrored that… More »

Beyoncé – “Partition” Video (NSFW-ish)

Now that "Drunk In Love" has effectively conquered the known universe, Beyoncé has marked "Partition," the skittering sex-in-the-limo jam that's my favorite song from her amazing self-titled album, as the next single to blow up. Since BEYONCÉ was a "visual album," the song already had a stylized, negligee-happy video from director JakeMore »

The Week In Pop: Candice Glover And American Idol‘s Decline

Did you know the reigning American Idol champion's album is out this week? Maybe the better question is: Do you know who the reigning American Idol champion is? Candice Glover is quite alright, so I hope your answer is yes, but I suspect it's no. More »

Watch Katy B Cover Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love”

Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" is shaping up as one of the inescapable songs of the day, a dominant clarion call that packs in more catchprases per second than any song in recent memory. Just in the last several weeks, we've heard covers or remixes from James Blake, Angel Haze, Future, More »

Diplo – “Biggie Bounce” Video + “Drunk in Love” Remix

Chances are no one at Georgia's Mableton Moose Lodge knew who Diplo was when he showed up to shoot the video for "Biggie Bounce," but they probably won't forget him anytime soon. The producer arrived with featured rappers Travis Porter and Angger Dimas in tow, along with some dancers who tried their best to twerk… More »

Beyoncé (Feat. Jay Z) – “Drunken Love (Official Remix)” (Prod. Detail)

If you didn't think there was any way to improve on the ostentatious Beyoncé/Jay Z collab "Drunk In Love," think again. Over at Complex, producer Noel "Detail" Fisher has unveiled his official remix of the song. Dubbed "Drunken Love," the remix trades in the booming drums of the original for a more cinematic and… More »

Watch Angel Haze Cover Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love”

Fresh off the rushed release of her debut album, Angel Haze stopped by BBC Radio 1 for a live rendition of Beyonce's "Drunk In Love." She struggles with the vocals on the chorus but makes up for that by adding a lot of character to the song with some original verses and a playful… More »

Grammys 2014: GIFs & Videos

The Grammys aren't about Grammys -- the vast majority of them aren't even given out during the televised ceremony. (UPDATE: Here's who won, though.) No, the Grammys are about the performances, and this year is looking pretty stacked. Here we'll be posting videos of the live sets including Daft Punk (with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers,… More »

The Week In Pop: Why So Serious, Jennifer Nettles?

My first exposure to Sugarland was the video for "Stuck Like Glue," a 2010 single that injected a shot of unexpected quirk to the heavily codified country radio landscape. I hadn't paid close attention to mainstream country since I was a kid, but somehow "Stuck Like Glue" made its way into my browser and captured… More »
