Little Mix – Shout Out to My Ex



British female singing troupe Little Mix are back at the top of the singles chart in their home country with their latest catchy tune, “Shout Out To My Ex.” The song previews the group’s upcoming fourth full-length album Glory Days, which is expected in about one month. “Shout Out” is the act’s fourth chart-topping single, following “Cannonball,” “Wings,” and “Black Magic,” the last two of which were also the first singles to be released from albums.

The girl group pushes fellow X Factor alum James Arthur down one rung to No. 2. His latest leader “Say You Won’t Let Go” topped the charts for a handful of frames, and is still going strong, only relenting to a massive new track from one of the most popular groups in the country.

Both “Closer” by The Chainsmokers and Halsey and “Starboy,” the latest from both The Weeknd and Daft Punk, make a move similar to James Arthur’s, in that they drop a single slot. Former No. 1 hit “Closer” is down to No. 3, while “Starboy,” which never quite made it all the way to the top, slips to fourth place.

Drake premieres his remix of young UK rapper Dave’s “Wanna Know” on OVO Sound Radio.


How many times now has Drake shut down a perfectly relaxed evening with an episode of OVO Sound Radio? As he turns 30 tomorrow, listeners knew tonight’s show would be special, and indeed, Drake started by announcing a new project, More Life, and ended by dropping four new songs in a row. Three of those songs will appear on More Life, and the remaining exclusive was a remix of “Wanna Know,” a buzzing track from 17-year-old London emcee Dave aka Santan Dave.Drake, who’s now a regular in London due to his partnership with Skepta and BBK, has likely turned “Wanna Know” into a veritable hit. He opens the song and adds another bout of his smooth singing flow after Dave’s opening verse. Dave lays down a tough hook but it’s a soft, melodic record — certainly in a different league than BBK’s pummeling sound. Will “Wanna Know” blow up in the same fashion as most of Drake’s past remixes?

Crazy Japanese Pop Track “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen” Is the New Viral Sensation


It lasts only 45 seconds and contains some of the most stupid, infectiously catchy lyrics of all time, but “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen” has just set a Guinness World Record in the U.S. charts after becoming a viral hit.

Piko-Taro, the alter ego of the comedian and DJ Daimaou Kosaka and the man behind this unfathomable banger, saw his song listed by Guinness as the shortest song ever to make it into the Billboard Hot 100. It was tweeted by Justin Bieber, who described it as his “favorite thing on the Internet,” before Biebz’s 90 million-strong army of followers gave the video a big push on its way to 68 million views on YouTube.

Dressed in his dope af animal-print shirt and trousers combo, the unlikely pop hero told a packed press conference in Japan he was stunned at the reaction to the song. “In the past I was accustomed to performing in front of audiences of between zero and one person,” he said.

It’s not the easiest of tracks to describe, but it basically features Piko pondering different combinations of pineapple, apple and pen – a Pen Pineapple Apple Pen (or PPAP for short) – against a funky beat. Imagine Ottawan’s “Hands Up” with a load of incredibly catchy gibberish over the top and you’ve pretty much got it. Check it out above.

Meek Mill Stops Beefing to Finally Drop His Latest Mixtape ‘DC4’


Having finally finished beefing with Drake and The Game, Meek Mill has turned his attention to doing some actual work, and we can finally rejoice in the fruits of his labor: his third album, DC4, dropped last night.

A collage combining the Philadelphia native’s mugshot and what appear to be police files feature on the album art, while an orange background is reminiscent of prison jump suits. 14 full-length tracks appear on DC4, which currently holds a four-and-a-half star rating on iTunes, based on 577 reviews. Safe to say, it must be a good one.

DC4 is available now on iTunes for $9.99 and via Spotify below.

Have a listen to Meek’s “New Funk Flex” freestyle, where he takes shots at Drake, The Game, Beanie Siegel and pretty much everyone else.

2 Chainz Launches ‘Hibachi 4 Lunch’ Clothing Line & Mixtape


2 Chainz has announced the release of a new clothing line and music collection, both named Hibachi 4 Lunch.

The new line’s first drop includes tees, long-sleeves, hoodies, and dad caps, all in on-point oversized fittings and featuring imagery inspired by traditional Japanese prints. The lookbook, which you can see above, sees 2 Chainz and a crew of young models wearing the fresh garms in some dingy and not-so-dingy street style shots.

The rapper unveiled the new line last night over at his Instagram account, and later posted product shots of every single piece from the first collection, a few of which you can see below.

Alongside the apparel, 2 Chainz also unveiled an accompanying mixtape featuring seven new tracks. Future, Ty Dolla, Mike WiLL Made-It, FKi, Gucci Mane and Quavo all make appearances, the latter two providing the highlight with the Mike Dean-produced “Good Drank”.

TLC Return With Their First New Music in 14 Years


Last year the legendary girl-group TLC launched a Kickstarter to release their final album, comprised of some leftovers from before the passing of Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopez. After raking in a wad of cash in little to no time, the results are in. TLC have just dropped two new songs — their first musical release in a full 14 years.

Titled “Haters” and “Joyride,” both tracks prove that the remaining members of the trio, Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, have lost none of the fierceness that made them household names in the first place. Are they as good as “Waterfalls” or “No Scrubs”? Of course not, but few songs are. But it shows that their upcoming record is no mere PR gimmick, but one of the realest deals in pop music history, confirming just how much of a real deal they still are.

Listen to both of the new tracks below and stay tuned for release information on their new album:

Watch Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon Sing “Ironic,” Be Besties


It is a well-documented fact that Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon are BFFs for life. Any of their skits on Saturday Night Live are enough to prove that point (though the most compelling argument is easily any installment of the “Barry Gibb Talk Show”). But just in case anyone doubts the power of their bromance, they reminded us just how strong it is during Justin’s stop on The Tonight Show last night, where they played a round of the “Best Friends Challenge.”

But the fun didn’t end there. The duo also performed a skit where they pretended to be kids at summer camp in the year 1996. And as any child would have done during that year, they sing a rousing rendition of the Grammy-winning single “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette. The context behind this clip is anyone’s guess, but goodness is Justin’s falsetto game strong.
