Watch Brandon Flowers Cover Frank Sinatra (With Big Boo) At Tribeca Film Festival Tribute

Killers frontman Brandon Flowers is from Las Vegas, so it only makes sense that he would’ve grown up idolizing Frank Sinatra. Last night, New York’s Tribeca Film Festival hosted a Sinatra tribute, and Flowers joined a cast of characters that included Tony Bennett and Ne-Yo. Below, watch fan-made videos of Flowers singing “Come Fly With… More »

The Week In Pop: Where Do Rock Music And Pop Radio Intersect In 2015?

Fall Out Boy will release their latest album, American Beauty/American Psycho, next week, and they’ll do so with the kind of saturation most musicians can only dream of. Their stadium anthem “Centuries” was inescapable during ESPN’s coverage of the College Football Playoff (the highest-rated event in the history of cable), it’s #6 today on the… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year’s biggest pop songs; now let’s run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence. (“Bang… More »

The Week In Pop: Is Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse As Ridiculous As Expected?

I was prepared to ridicule Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse mercilessly. The title is preposterous, obviously; nobody says “chanteuse” except music critics too lazy to spend 15 seconds on, and no one who spent part of this album’s gestation period judging American Idol can really be described as “elusive.” Then there wa… More »

jj – “We Can’t Stop” (Feat. Ne-Yo)

The Adult Swim Singles series throws corporate dollars at indie artists in a cash-for-cred swap that has, to its credit, yielded some memorable collabs. Last year around this time it was Washed Out thrown in the mix with Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, offering a female-fronted Brooklyn indie-pop twist to his South Carolina chillwave template. This year’… More »

Radiohead, Lil Wayne Nominated For Album Of The Year Grammy

Remember the 50th Annual Grammy Awards? Alicia Keys duetting with the ghost of Sinatra? rapping nonsense? Album of the Year River: The Joni Letters??? It’s easy (and fun!) to make fun of the Grammys, but last year they really deserved it, and viewers voiced their discontent by watching Extreme Makeover instead. For ceremony #51… More »

New Rihanna (Feat. Ne-Yo) Video – “Hate That I Love You”

Everyone’s favorite Barbadian bombshell’s testing the waters with the third “official” single from Good Girl Gone Bad (apparently “Don’t Stop The Music” didn’t count; we agree). There was love via raingear, sex via car metaphors, but she’s done speaking figuratively — now she’s just hating that she loves Ne-Yo. Or so it seems. Can Rihanna… More »
