Watch Lena Dunham’s Interpretive Dance To Sia’s “Chandelier” On Seth Meyers

Up until now, the Australian singer-songwriter Sia has had greater success penning songs for other singers than for herself. She seems determined not to let that happen again, going for full virality at every turn with her new single "Chandelier."

The Week In Pop: Shakira And Latin Pop’s Too-Big-To-Fail Era

Shakira first entered my consciousness around the turn of the millennium courtesy of my high school Spanish teacher, a friendly young white American woman married to a man from Colombia.

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of January 2014: Girls, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, & More

January has a bad reputation. Over the years, the pattern in which studios distribute their films has ossified, so that we automatically expect most "serious" Oscar contenders to be crammed in together towards the end of the year. This leaves January as the assumed garbage dump, the month-long wasteland where studios offload the projects they… More »

The 10 Best Moments From The 2013 YouTube Music Awards

After an ambitious and awkward 90-minute production, the inaugural YouTube Music Awards have disappeared into a cloud of blue chalk dust.

Santigold – “Girls”

When Santigold contributed a new joint to the soundtrack of the HBO show Girls, she called the song, naturally enough, "Girls." The song will show up on a collection of music from the show, due out next month, and it's a quick little synth jam built on voice samples, and it features the closest thing… More »

The 8 Best Music Moments From HBO’s Girls

It sputtered a bit out of the gate -- though that widespread sentiment might be the result of the impossibly enormous expectations placed on Lena Dunham's debut television series -- Girls seemingly improved week-in, week-out. Its ten-episode first season concluded last night, so today we've picked the show's best musical moments. While we'll briefly acknowledge… More »
