iLoveMakonnen Lines Up Drake, Rihanna, Diplo, Skrillex For Debut LP

iLoveMakonnen is one of the most compelling artists coming out of Atlanta’s newest wave of culture-defying hip-hop, and ever since Drake hopped on a remix of his weekday ode “Tuesday” and signed him to OVO, Makonnen’s star continues to rise.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

We’re officially five full weeks into 2015, so where do we stand (besides shin-deep in gray-curb slush puddles)? From the sounds of this playlist, we might not be standing at all. We could be bounding through aquariums, huddling in storm-wrecked caves, kneeling in funereal cathedrals, feasting in royal courts, or traipsing around the woods. Thi… More »

Here’s Why ILoveMakonnen & Drake’s “Tuesday” Is So Irresistible

In the past year since Chilly Gonzales started his Pop Music Masterclass video series, he’s deconstructed the appeal of popular songs such as “Get Lucky,” “Shake It Off,” “Fancy,” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” His latest video takes a look at the irresistible iLoveMakonnen/Drake track “Tuesday.” He starts explaining the song using only a… More »

Watch Jimmy Fallon & Gwyneth Paltrow Sing Broadway Versions Of Drake, Nicki Minaj, & Big Sean

Make no mistake: Within the next decade or so, Broadway will get a Rock Of Ages-style rap jukebox musical. It already sort of happened with the Tupac musical that flopped last year. Last night on The Tonight Show, we saw some version of how the final product might look, and it was pure hell. Old… More »

The Week In Pop: Forecasting 2015’s Event Albums And Rising Stars

Take it from someone who started a weekly pop column last year: 2014 was a bad year for pop music. I write this knowing that there are still many self-satisfied blowhards in the world — sometimes even in the comments section of this very website! — who will tell you that every year is a… More »

Watch Drake’s Mom Explain Why People Think He Cries A Lot

If you’re trying to prove that you aren’t as soft as your reputation suggests, I’m not sure that posting Instagram videos of your mother explaining that you’re a “sensitive soul” is the best way to achieve your objective. But if you’re trying to troll everybody who calls you soft, mission accomplished. That was Drake’s tactic… More »

Spike Lee Wrote A School Daze Sequel Starring Drake As PE*NIS

Ever since unknown parties hacked into Sony’s servers and made the results public, we’ve been granted a ridiculous surplus of Hollywood moviemaking gossip. Thanks to all these emails that are now out there in front of public eyeballs, we now know who’s mad at who, who’s lashing out vindictively at who, and who has no… More »

Watch Diddy Accuse Drake Of Stealing “0 To 100″ In Newly Surfaced Video That Explains Their Beef

If someone stole “0 To 100” from me, I’d probably be pissed about it, too.

Dozens of cabs lined the street, because depending on where you’re coming from the Navy Yard can kind of be a pain to get to, and also because NYC’s been doing this thing where it’s decided to just rain constantly in December,… More »
