The Raptors Gave Out Drake Lint Rollers Last Night

Last week cameras caught Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake vigorously lint-rolling his pants while courtside during a Raptors playoff game.

Indie Rock’s R&B Movement Reaches Its Saturation Point

A few years back, a critical mass of musicians started making R&B steeped in the sort of art-damaged signifiers indie rock has traditionally claimed as its own. This wasn't the first time rhythm & blues had pushed boundaries; legendary figures from Curtis Mayfield to Prince to Missy Elliott managed to get some of the most… More »

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 »

Watch Drake Lint Roll His Pants Courtside At Raptors-Nets Game

Drake is taking his position of "global ambassador" for the Toronto Raptors seriously, especially now that the Raptors are in the NBA playoffs and not doing terribly.

Watch Chilly Gonzales Deconstruct “Get Lucky” And “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Explain Why They’re Catchy

After Owen Pallett's deconstruction of Katy Perry, Daft Punk, and Lady Gaga, there seems to be a new trend in which everyone wants to explain in tedious detail why pop music is so enticing in some twisted way of justifying our enjoyment of it. This time, self-described "musical genius" and Random AccessMore »

Drake Is Hosting The ESPYs

In the past few years, Drake has made a habit out of showing up in the locker rooms of famous athletes, posing for photos, and trying to be their friend, often to the point where he makes himself look like a total dork. (See above.) And as Drizzy himself announces on Twitter, he will… More »

Drake – “Days In The East”

Yesterday, with no context or forewarning, Drake shared a shit-talk-happy new song called "Draft Day." And very late last night, he gave us another song, one that shows a different side of him. He'd already performed "Days In The East," his new one, live, but the studio version of the new Drake song… More »

Drake – “Draft Day”

These late-night surprise song releases from Drake are quickly becoming some of the most exciting things that regularly happen in rap. Last night, Drake hit us with another one: "Draft Day," which samples Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" and features Drake in laid-back tough-talk form. The whole thing seems motivated by Jay ElectronicaMore »

Jay Electronica – “We Made It” (Feat. Jay Z)

Last year, Drake heard a track on a recent Soulja Boy mixtape and freestyled over it, and the result was "We Made It," arguably the most purely fun song of Drizzy's entire career. Meanwhile, the reclusive rap cult hero Jay Electronica reemerged last week with a new song called "Better In Tune WithMore »

Drake has been touring through Europe lately, and Friday in the UK city of Birmingham he premiered a new song, a slow jam called "Days In The East" produced by OVO Sound signee and fellow Ontario product PARTYNEXTDOOR.

The Week In Pop: The Mis-MGMT Of Foster The People

Every few years, a musician achieves that rare combination of commercial dominance and critical acclaim -- and therefore inspires lots of copycats -- only to willfully retreat from the spotlight. This usually involves making an album designed to alienate mainstream audiences and/or distance the originator from the imitators. It also tends to create a vacuum… More »

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 »

Drake Apologizes For Rolling Stone Freakout

Yesterday, a Rolling Stone profile of Drake went up online, and in that story, he had some not-that-nice things to say about a number of his peers. Macklemore, Kanye West, Jay Z, and Fabolous all probably feel some type of way about the things that Drizzy had to say. And as soo… More »

Drake “Disgusted” With Rolling Stone For Giving His Cover To Philip Seymour Hoffman, Calls Kanye’s Lyrics “Questionable”

Yesterday, we learned that Drake had spoken ill of Macklemore to Rolling Stone.
