Preview Beyoncé’s “Standing On The Sun” In H&M Commercial

Earlier this month, Beyoncé debuted a minute-and-a-half chunk of her new song "Grown Woman" in a Pepsi ad. Apparently, that strategy worked so well that she's already repeated it, except this time with a different brand attached. This time, it's 90 seconds of the sinuous "Standing On The Sun," heard in the background of… More »

Preview Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman” In New Pepsi Commercial

Last month, Beyoncé effectively ripped faces off with her bizarre and excellent new single "Bow Down / I Been On." And now she's following that up with something that seems much more conventional: A way-more-linear new single, debuting in a Pepsi ad. The new song is the Timbaland-produced "Grown Woman," and we hear a… More »

Beyoncé – “I Been On Remix” (Feat. Bun B, Scarface, Z-Ro, Lil Keke, Willie D & Slim Thug)

A couple of weeks ago and absolutely out of nowhere, Beyoncé released the absolutely badass and aggressively weird single "Bow Down/I Been On," on which she rapped in a screwed-up voice and repped hard for underground Texas rap. And now, for the "I Been On" remix, she's rounded up an absolutely staggering lineup of… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2013

Remember last month when we made a hand-wringing post about the death of the MP3 and thereby the end of the downloadable Monthly Mix? Well, fuck it -- ZIP FILE BACK.

Watch The xx Cover Beyoncé’s “I Miss You”

Beyoncé's "I Miss You" is one of those records that just absolutely tears at the fabric of heartache and vulnerability. It's produced so well -- starts calm and glowing and ascends into the closest thing to a well-manicured banshee cry, the layers of vocals each expressing a different tenor of pain. When Frank Ocean revealed… More »

Watch Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Show

Last night, the Baltimore Ravens won the motherfucking Super Bowl. Really, for those of us who come from Baltimore, everything else that happened is a footnote: The bizarre half-hour power outage that threatened to send the game into chaos, the Budweiser commercial with the horse that made everyone cry, the presence of porcupine cheerleaders at… More »

Destiny’s Child Reunite For New Single

I spent three and a half years writing a Village Voice blog named after a spare line from Destiny's Child's "Soldier," so expect no objectivity here. But Destiny's Child is the greatest and most important R&B group of the last 20 years or so, and now they're about to release their first new… More »

Beyoncé posted the above image to her magnificent Tumblr earlier today; what is she trying to tell us?. But yeah, she's playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show (the AP confirms it). It's her second appearance at the Super Bowl, where she sang the National Anthem in 2004. To revisit that, head down below. More »

Watch Beyoncé Join Jay-Z In Brooklyn

Though Jay-Z told Rolling Stone that there wouldn't be any guests hitting the stage during his eight-night run at Brooklyn's brand-new Barclay's Center -- he wasn't exactly true to his word -- the final night featured a dramatic appearance from his wife Beyoncé, who came out to perform "Diva" and duet with Jay… More »

Beyoncé’s New Tumblr Is Adorable

So yes: It's probably, at least on some level, a cynical ploy for a titanic celebrity to maintain control over her own image and to remind the world she still exists. Still, Beyoncé's Tumblr, which she launched today, makes me like her even more, and that's not an easy thing to do. (I really… More »

Sleigh Bells Cover Beyoncé

Earlier today, Sleigh Bells stopped by Zane Lowe's BBC show and aired a couple of acoustic tracks they'd recorded for a Maida Vale session. One was an unplugged version of the single "Comeback Kid," and the other was their take on their possible future collaborator Beyoncé's breakup anthem "Irreplaceable." It's a completely straight-up cover… More »

Chairlift & Das Racist’s Kool A.D. Cover Beyoncé

Thanks to reader memoryboy for sending us this link to Triple J radio, wherein Chairlift and DR rap star Victor Vazquez aka Kool A.D. cover Beyoncé's "Party." (This is also titularly poetic, since Chairlift's Caroline guested on Das Racist's "Fashion Party back in the Sit Down, Man days.) In this fashion-less "Party," Caroline play… More »
