We're not so convinced
In other words, "Long.Live.A$AP."
But latest single is lukewarm
After years of being asked the question of whether or not they'll reunite, and subsequently deflecting that inquiry with politically-correct answers about forever being "sisters," Destiny's Child has released a new song, their first since breaking up to embark on separate solo careers after touring their final album, 2004's "Destiny Fulfilled."
...and he's marching right back into the studio.
"The hottest chick in the game" kicks off her return to the spotlight
Her new single definitely is not 'Whip My Hair' material
By Jason Lipshutz
Willow Smith is moving farther away from the vibrant energy of "Whip My Hair" with every new song: her latest offering, "Sugar And Spice," is a disturbing ballad that samples those artfully gloomy alt-rock kings, Radiohead.
"Inject my soul with darkness," the 12-year-old Willow rasps over a lurching rhythm snatched from Radiohead's "Codex," off of their 2011 disc "The King of Limbs." Later, Smith declares, "I tried to be sugar and spice, but I'm melancholy and can't do anything right." Later still, she sings, "Take a swing at me, I'll fight/To the death, my light is bright." The tween displays considerable vocal skill on "Sugar and Spice," which was posted online early on Tuesday, but the song's lyrics are too pointedly chilly to overlook.
Last summer, Willow offered a more intimate side of her songwriting on "I Am Me," with a music video that featured the singer walking around New York City with a shaved head. "Your validation is just not that important to me," she sang on the track, which followed the more uptempo tracks "21st Century Girl" and "Fireball," featuring Nicki Minaj. "Knees and Elbows" has been announced as the title of Willow's debut album, but a release date has yet to materialize.
Hip-Hop rookie teams with a legendary vet for a new project.
Hip-Hop purists often complain that today's current generation of MCs doesn't pay homage to its predecessors. Rising rapper Joey Bada$$ clearly doesn't feel that way as he recently got up with legendary producer DJ Premier for a collabo that is aptly titled "Unorthodox."
Or so we gather from his latest tune
Well if Maxwell didn't tease the hell out of us with that "BlackSummers'Night" promise, right? He released the first installment of the anticipated album trilogy way back in 2009; "Black" spawned three hit singles ("Pretty Wings," anyone?), went platinum, won two Grammy Awards, and then…nothing.
