TGIF, am I right? Oh, wait. Whatever! Here’s a brassy, jangling, ass-clap remix of “Bitch Better Have My Money” from noted female ally Diplo and Canadian producer Grandtheft—it is a jam, and sounds like pouring tequila in your best friend’s mouth (and your worst enemy’s, too). » 5/14/15 9:50am 5/14/15 9:50am

The Elusive Chanteuse Cooks Up a Frito Pie

Boy, you actin’ so corny like Fritos,” is a sentence that the great Mariah Carey sings in her latest single “Infinity.” Do you think Mariah even eats Fritos or is she more of a Doritos type of girl?

Hey, Rihanna's 'American Oxygen' Video Is a Pretty Decent Thinkpiece

I mean it! The new video for Rihanna's moody, mid-tempo, cursing salutation of her adopted country (a song co-written with X Ambassadors' Sam Harris) pulls the cheap yet wildly effective trick of montage juxtaposition, all in the palette of American strife and striving: a protestor throws a Molotov cocktail, a… » 4/16/15 11:30am 4/16/15 11:30am
