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 soon as the article… 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. After Macklemore had defeated Kendrick Lamar (and Drake, and Kanye West, and Jay Z) for the Best Rap Album Grammy, Macklemore sent a text of apology to Kendrick and then shared that text on Instagram, an action Drake calls “wack as fuck.”… More »

Drake Says Macklemore’s Grammys Text To Kendrick Was “Wack As Fuck”

Drake and Kendrick Lamar spent the second half of last year throwing stray shots at each other. Then, a few weeks ago, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis beat both of them (as well as Kanye West and Jay Z) to win a Best Rap Album Grammy, which would’ve been a ridiculous breach of public trust if… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Mark Kozelek has now released three songs from the forthcoming Sun Kil Moon LP Benji, and all three have found their way to their respective week’s 5 Best Songs: the brand new “I Watched The Film The Song Remains The Same” is in the upper half of this week’s list. That’s a pretty good sig… More »

The Week In Pop: Miley Brings The Monogenre To MTV Unplugged

You don’t have to be a legit rock star to get an MTV Unplugged these days. In recent years the show has hosted quite a few household names (Paramore, Alicia Keys, Adele, Mumford & Sons, Katy Perry, 30 Seconds To Mars, a very-plugged-in Lil Wayne). Some of the world’s most popular rock bands of the… More »

YG – “Who Do You Love?” (Feat. Drake)

The week between Christmas and New Year’s, when Drake dropped two new bangers of his own, he also popped up on an unfinished version of YG’s DJ Mustard production “Who Do You Love?” (You might recall that another YG/Mustard collab, “My Nigga,” got an all-star remix last week with Lil Wayne, Rich Homie Quan, Meek… More »

Two editions of the Wireless Festival hit the U.K. this July 4-6 — one at London’s Finsbury Park, the other at Birmingham’s Perry Park — and it looks like some of America’s best and brightest will be across the pond for Independence Day.

The Week In Pop: Grammys Preview, Starring, Um, Sara Bareilles

Which album are you gunning for at the Grammys? If you’re a regular reader of this site, chances are you’re hoping Daft Punk gets lucky with an Album Of The Year win for Random Access Memories, or perhaps you’d prefer if Kendrick Lamar took home top honors for good kid, m.A.A.d. city. Both acts are… More »

Watch Drake Host SNL

Drake returned to SNL tonight, this time pulling double duty as host and musical guest. The Degrassi alum and Raptors global ambassador played on his black and Jewish heritage in a Bar Mitzvah-themed monologue; did fine impressions of A-Rod, Katt Williams, Jay Z, and Lil Wayne (as Steve Urkel!); and performed a couple of song… More »

Watch Drake Play Beer Hockey On Fallon

Last night, Drake was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but he wasn’t the musical guest. (That was Neon Trees, which yergh.) He was there for other reasons. Drake is hosting SNL tomorrow night, and so he was skulking around NBC’s Rockefeller Center headquarters anyway, and he’s got a history as a fun Fallon guest. More »

Watch Drake’s SNL Promos

In what may turn out to be the biggest night of his career to date, Drake will serve as both host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live this weekend — an ambitious move for a musician whose acting days are long behind him. But if Drake’s new SNL promos are anything to go o… More »

The Week In Pop: Stereogum’s New Weekly Pop Column

Welcome to The Week In Pop, Stereogum’s new weekly pop column. I’ll be here every Thursday with a look at mainstream pop music via essays, track reviews, chart updates, and more. The phrase “Stereogum’s weekly pop column” probably raises some questions, so let’s get to them right away:… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

We skipped 5 Best Songs last week because of the holiday, so we considered any music that dropped between last week and this one eligible for this week’s installment. And wouldn’t ya know it: Over the course of two truncated weeks we got five new songs from straight A-listers. Stakes is high. But who took… More »

Drake – “Trophies” & “We Made It Freestyle (Feat. Soulja Boy)”

Last month Drake promised four or five new songs before New Year’s, and two of them arrived over the weekend as free downloads, a pair of triumphant, trumpet-laden tracks called “Trophies” and “We Made It Freestyle.” The former is a Rocky-reminiscent Hit-Boy production that transfuses Drake’s trademark passive aggression into a victory lap that would… More »

Watch Drake Join Kanye At Yeezus Tour Closer In Toronto

Last night, at the final Yeezus tour stop in Toronto, Drake joined Kanye West onstage to perform their 2009 collaboration “Forever” (for the first time) and Nothing Was The Same single “All Me.” This came a night after the two partied at The Hoxton, performing “Headlines” and “Worst Behavior” and swinging from the rafters.

Future – “Sh!t (Remix)” (Feat. Drake & Juicy J)

There’s a decent chance that the Future solo single “Sh!t” is the single hardest track that Future released all year, and this is the year he sang the “Bugatti” hook. A new remix of the track ups the stakes even further, incorporating a bit of Three 6 Mafia’s “Tear Da Club Up” and adding i… More »

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2013

Last year, there was one album — Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City — that united virtually the entire rap-listening public in adoration. This year, no such luck. Many heard my #1 pick of the year (and you can probably already guess what it is) as the work of a sonic visionary, and plenty more… More »
