Bad Bunny Teams Up With Drake For Reggaeton Banger, “Mia”

0
Bad Bunny has well and truly arrived! The Puerto Rican superstar, who topped the Billboard Hot 100 with a feature on Cardi B’s“I Like It,” teams up with Drake for a new single called “Mia.” And it’s going to be absolutely huge. A hip-swinging reggaeton banger with an instantly catchy chorus, this has all the ingredients for a crossover smash. It also boasts a relaxed street party-themed video, which finds Drizzy emoting by a car and playing a game of dominoes with his new group of friends.

Impressively, Drake sings his part in Spanish and there isn’t the obligatory English-language verse to make the song more appealing to radio programmers. Not that it’s going to need much help. “Mia” is already soaring up iTunes (number 12 and rising fast) and is destined to rack up huge streaming numbers. Throw in Bad Bunny’s popularity on YouTube (the video for “Mayores” has a whopping 1.3 billions views) and the track is all but assured of being a chart monster. Check out the future smash up top.

Madonna & Cardi B Hop On Quavo’s “Champagne Rosé

0
Madonna is hard at work crafting a new studio album. However, the Queen of Pop isn’t leaving us high and dry while we patiently await her glorious return. Instead, she has decided to grace us with a surprising collaboration. Late last night (October 11), the “Hold Tight”siren hopped on a track for Quavo’s debut solo album, QUAVO HUNCHO. The LP gives the Migos rapper an opportunity to flex his creativity in new ways. And it also boasts a star-studded group of collaborators including the likes of Drake, Normani and Cardi B. Unsurprisingly, Madge’s contribution is an absolute highlight.

The living legend and Cardi lend their voices to “Champagne Rosé,” and they undeniably steal the show. “Drink me up, Champagne Rosé. It’s my game,” Madonna chants over frosty beats on the catchy-as-all-hell chorus. Please note her iconic pronunciation. She takes center stage on a verse as well “It’s my game. Please let me entertain you. Get inside your vein, too. Intoxicate your brain,” she coos. It is definitely an unexpected moment from the icon. However, it worms its way in your head. Meanwhile Cardi’s verse is all sorts of shady.

“They say my time is ticking. These hoes is optimistic. Somebody told you not to fuck with me. I would listen,” the “I Like It” rapper cryptically warns. “I don’t do number two. That’s the type of shit I’m on,” she adds. Many are taking this as a dig at Nicki Minaj who debuted at the number 2 spot on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. The pair have some serious beef that recently culminated in a near-fight during New York Fashion Week, and this is going to escalate things.

It may not be “Beautiful Game,” but I can’t help being obsessed with Madonna’s latest experiment. Give the LP a spin here and press play on Madonna’s catchy contribution below.

0
While most of us are guilty of assuming that a lot of actors just act for a living, that’s not necessarily the case. Some actors are major hobbyists whether it’s sports, making art, writing, and in some cases, making music. Believe it or not, there are a lot of world famous actors that are committed to their music careers when they’re not in front of the camera. While you may never imagine a particular actor singing on stage because of the characters they’ve played, there’s a lot more than you think. So, crank up the volume and discover which famous actors are successful musicians as well.

Can you guess which Mission Impossible actor doubles as a singer-songwriter?

Scarlett Johannson Performed At Coachella

Scarlett Johansson has already established herself as an incredibly successful actress starring in films such as Lucy, Her, Lost in Translation, as well as the Avengers. Yet, she shocked her fans and the audience at Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2007 when she performed with The Jesus & Mary Chain. Not long after, in 2008, she released her first album Where I Laid My Head.

Since then, she has been working with singer-songwriter Peter Yorn, as a five-song record titled Apart, which was released in 2018. Just when Johannson’s fans thought she couldn’t get any better, turns out she’s a musician as well.

Bruce Willis

Just a year before Die Hard came out, Willis released a soul record titled The Return of Bruno. The album was actually a piece of performance art with “Bruno” being a character of a fake HBO documentary that was supporting Willis’ album.

Surprisingly, the track “Respect Yourself” became a hit and reached No. 5 on the charts. After a follow-up album in 1989, he never recorded again. However, he played a two-hour set with a blues band at B.B. King’s in New York in 2002.

Kevin Costner Is A Country Artist At Heart

Since the band’s beginnings in 2007, they have released four albums, with one of them beingFamous for Killing Each Other in2012.

The album peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, pretty impressive for a man who once played Robin Hood on the big screen. However, that isn’t his band’s only success. In 2010, they performed at Nashville’s renowned Grand Ole Opry, something that not everybody gets to do.

Jeremy Renner has A Documentary Coming Out About Being A Musician

He’s known to take music very seriously, and even incorporates it into his acting methods. He says that he creates a very specific song for each character that he plays to help him fit the mood and get into character.

You’ll never guess the album Ryan Gosling released in 2009.

Zooey Deschanel Is A Musician Almost As Much As She Is An Actor

John Shearer/WireImageKnown for starring in New Girl and numerous films, Zooey Deschanel is a lover of vintage pop music and has been playing with her indie group She & Him since 2008. The band was formed in 2006 when Deschanel met musician M. Ward while making the film The Go-Getter. Since they formed their band, they have released six albums under She & Him, including two Christmas records.

Their cover of “The Last Christmas Waltz” has been described by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest rock and roll Christmas songs ever. The group has also proven successful enough to perform at events such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, and even overseas.

Keanu Reeves Slaps The Bass

Martyn Goodacre/Getty ImagesKeanu Reeves is more than just the action star in films like The Matrix, Point Break, and John Wick. While starting out as a young actor, he was also the bass player for the band Dogstar. The group released two albums between 1996 and 2000 and even took some time in order to tour.

However, there was a rumor going around that he dropped out of the sequel to Speed in order to perform with Dogstar. In 1996, Keanu Reeves put this rumor to rest while giving an interview on CNN. Although Dogstar may no longer be playing as a band, Keanu Reeves is still known to pick up his bass every now and then.

Ryan Gosling Had A Rather Unusual Music Project

Noel Vasquez/Getty ImagesRyan Gosling has been one of Hollywood’s biggest and most adored sweethearts since his breakout role in the 2004 film,The Notebook. On top of being incredibly handsome and a respected actor, in 2009, he was the frontman for a Halloween-themed band called Dead Man’s Bones. The group was formed by Reynolds and his friend and film producer, Zach Shields.

Their first album titled Dead Man’s Bones was released on October 6, 2009 under Anti-Records, featuring a somber children’s choir. Pitchfork described the records as being “a truly unusual and surprising record.” Gosling continued to demonstrate his musical prowess in the film La La Land where he sang, danced, and learned to play the jazz piano in just three months.

Chris Polk/FilmMagic

While some people might have assumed that Russel Crowe’s role in the musical drama filmLes Misérables was Crowe’s first crack at singing, they would be mistaken. The Gladiator actor began his career in entertainment as a musician before becoming one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In the 1980s, while still living in New Zealand, he played under the name Russ le Roq, where he released his single “I Just Wanna Be Like Marlon Brando.”

Según ha confirmado la artista británica en Twitter, Dua Lipa presentará esta semana, concretamente el jueves día 6 de septiembre, un nuevo single titulado ‘Electricity’. Se trata de aquella colaboración con dos de los productores más importantes del pop de los últimos años, Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga) y Diplo (Madonna, Beyoncé), que ahora forman un tándem bajo el nombre de Silk City.Como se había contado hace semanas, ‘Electricity’ ha sido además compuesta junto a Romy Madley Croft, de The xx, y Florence Welch, conocida por su proyecto Florence + The Machine. Ronson dijo en una entrevista que esta canción cuenta con “una voz profunda y llena de alma que nos remonta a la época del gospel house”.

Ha sido número 1 en la lista de singles de Reino Unido y alcanzó el top 26 de Billboard Hot 100 en EE UU.

‘Electricity’ será el cuarto single de Silk City tras ‘Only Can Get Better‘ (con Daniel Merriweather), ‘Feel About You’ (con Mapei) y ‘Loud’ (con GoldLink y Desiigner). Por el momento no se conoce si Ronson y Diplo piensan reunir esas canciones en un disco.

Quien haya sufrido un episodio de ansiedad, sabe que es una de los trastornos psicológicos más desesperantes, una angustia que no se calma, el corazón que palpita a mil, y una impaciencia que  no se calma. Aprender controlarla con la respiración, es un buen remedio, aunque  científicamente está es la mejor canción para combatir la ansiedad

Un estudio realizado por neurocientíficos de Mindlab de Reino Unido, descubrió que no hay mejor método para lidiar cuando las cosas se ponen difíciles en el trabajo, en la escuela o en tu vida personal, que la música, pero específicamente hay una canción que te relajará como bebé.

Pinterest

El estudio se realizó con voluntarios que intentaron resolver acertijos difíciles lo más rápido posible mientras estaban conectados a sensores. Los rompecabezas indujeron un cierto nivel de estrés y los participantes escucharon diferentes canciones mientras que los investigadores midieron la actividad cerebral y los estados fisiológicos que incluían la frecuencia cardíaca, la presión arterial y la frecuencia respiratoria.

Según el Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson de Mindlab International, quien realizó la investigación, la canción principal produjo un mayor estado de relajación que cualquier otra música probada hasta la fecha, ni siquiera las melodías de Mozart, lograron relajar tanto a los participantes.

La canción para combatir la ansiedad, se  trata de Weightles una pieza de ocho minutos con ocho segundos creada en 2011, por tres músicos en colaboración con la Academia Británs, ica de la Terapia del Sonido. Cada detalle, armonía, ritmo y bajo está pensado para calmar el ritmo cardiaco del oyente, bajar la presión de la sangre y llevarlo a un estado de serenidad ante la ansiedad

Pinterest

De hecho, escuchar la canción que combate la ansiedad,  “sin peso encima”, dio como resultado una sorprendente reducción del 65 por ciento en la ansiedad general de los participantes y una reducción del 35 por ciento en sus tasas de reposo fisiológicas habituales.

El hallazgo fue tan importante que el año de creación de la pieza, 2011, la revista TIME mencionó Marconi Union en su lista de inventores del año.

Según el especialista, la mejor canción para combatir la ansiedad, Weightless logra disminuir en más de la mitad los cambios químicos que hay en el cerebro cuando la ansiedad, el miedo e, incluso, la depresión, aparecen.

Drake Dominates Streaming, But Not Pop Radio — ‘In My Feelings’ Will Change That

0

Rap singles have been on top of the Hot 100 for the past 26 weeks, and hip-hop has been the most consumed genre of music in the U.S. for 18 straight months. But these victories have not been mirrored in the world of Top 40 radio — even Drake, who routinely breaks streaming records, still faces a tough slog over the airwaves. “God’s Plan” had to spend 10 weeks as the Number One hit on the Hot 100 before it became a top 10 record at pop radio, and follow-up single “Nice for What” never made it into pop radio’s top 10 despite eight weeks as the biggest record in the nation.

But Drake appears to have crushed that resistance with his latest single, “In My Feelings.” The key has been a viral dance challenge, which has made the record so ubiquitous across such a wide swath of listeners that pop radio cannot help but throw its considerable weight behind the single: 70 different stations recently added the song into rotation, according to Nielsen. “All of the mediums, regardless of what format, are looking for the thing that everybody’s talking about,” says Terri Thomas, a programming director for The Box, Houston’s mainstream R&B/hip-hop station. “The total virality of it – ‘In My Feelings’ made its way into all aspects of popular culture.”

That’s not easy for a rap record to do. Though streaming takes up the lion’s share of the headlines, radio still reaches corners of the country that streaming does not. Nielsen reported in April that, “on a weekly basis, 93% of all adults tune in to radio, the most of any platform, and radio has 243 million listeners in a given month.” Listeners are still roughly twice as likely to discover new music on the radio as they are on streaming services, according to Nielsen, and in 2017 the pop format still had the largest audience share in the 12 to 17, 18 to 34 and 25 to 54-year-old age brackets. But pop radio doesn’t play much rap.

“Nice for What” enjoyed some Top 40 play, but it didn’t become a mega-hit, despite its soothing, hyper-melodic Lauryn Hill sample and star-studded video. “In My Feelings” can be seen as a companion piece — like “Nice for What,” it’s co-produced by the veteran Blaqnmild, who is presumably partially responsible for the kinetic percussive breakdowns inspired by the New Orleans subgenre known as bounce music. On paper, “In My Feelings” might be considered the less pop-radio friendly of the two singles. The second half of the song includes a melange of staccato samples — Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop;” a famous bounce snippet known as the Triggerman beat — that have a history for rap listeners but no currency at pop radio.

Perhaps that’s why Drake’s team did not promote “In My Feelings” to pop radio at first. Instead, they led with “Don’t Matter to Me,” which features snippets of an unreleased Michael Jackson demo — potential points on the pop radio scorecard – but also comes off as a gloomy, post-break-up tour through a romantic wasteland. Pop programmers respected Drake’s wishes: The week after Scorpion came out, they played “Don’t Matter to Me” 102 times, according to Mediabase, which tracks radio play. They spun “In My Feelings” just once.

DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper & Quavo’s “No Brainer” Is A Summery Anthem

0
Last year DJ Khaled landed a serious hit with his star-studded “I’m The One.” After recruiting the likes of Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, Quavo and Lil Wayne, the quintet topped the Billboard Hot 100. The accompanying video was viewed more than one billion times, and the anthem was a serious contender for the title of Song of the Summer. Today (July 27), the super-producer pulled off the unthinkable. He managed to get the group (excluding Weezy) back together on his new single, “No Brainer.” Since officially announcing the release last week fans have speculated if they would be able to replicate the success of their first outing. Now that the song has dropped, it is clear that they have another serious hit on their hands.

Following in the footsteps of “I’m The One,” their latest is a vibrant bop. On it they trade off verses while Bieber and Khaled take the reins on the chorus. There, the “Sorry” crooner delivers some flirty lines to a potential fling. “You stick out of the crowd, baby. It’s a no brainer. It ain’t that hard to choose. Him or me, be for real, baby, it’s a no brainer,” he confidently announces over the buoyant production. It sounds like they may have another number one single on their hands, and they definitely have another viral video to support it. With a variety of set pieces and a large cast, it is another impressive release. With the right push, “No Brainer” may eclipse the group’s first release. It looks like the summery smash will land on Khaled’s forthcoming album, Father of Asahd. His son, Asahd Khaled, acted as executive producer on the project. It follows last year’s Grateful, which topped the Billboard 200 and spawned a trio of radio hits including “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. Stream “No Brainer” up top and revisit “I’m The One” below!
