Greatest Man Alive Pitbull Drops New Video With Ne-Yo For Best NYE Jam

Pitbull's latest album, Global Warming, is characteristically packed with feel-good party jams, but not all of them are populist, per se—aspirational, yes, but not everyone can actualize their fantasies about "sexy beaches/ hotels" when they're trying to scrape up rent. But Mr. Worldwide was not always globally sound,… » 12/26/14 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

Miguel Drops Three New Tracks, You Will Swoon

Black Messiah, Top Five and the Power of Perfect Timing

D'Angelo has his own distorted concept of time. His new album, Black Messiah—one of the few ones worthy of the terms "long-awaited" and "anticipated"—is as much about a bubbling up as it is a pleasurable, well-timed release.
