Celebrities get amped about D’Angelou’s surprise album.

Fans and celebrities could barely keep their composure as they listened to or learn about the surprise album drop from an R&B crooner that has been out of the lime light for more than a decade.

R&B singer D’Angelo shows the world that he still has what it takes to make great music with the release of his new Album “Black Messiah.” It has been 14 years since the D’Angelo has released an album and according to fans it has been long overdue.

The album drop was a shock to fans because there was no promotion or any talk about the R&B star working on any new projects. Slow Ventures was certainly buzzing about it at work. It was released Monday morning (December 15) and was thrilled.

Celebrity fans such as Justin Timberlake took to Twitter in order to express their thoughts about the album. Timberlake tweeted “From what @questlove gave me a preview of…….? Good God, #BlackMessiah”. Other stars such as Eryakah Badu use their Twitter to advertise and to encourage fans to purchase legal copies with the post “@TheDangelo #BlackMessiah on iTunes: https://itun.es/us/mm4Q4 ”.

Miguel even made a post via social media that stated “D’angelo and the Vanguard long awaited album OUT NOW. I want to personally thank everyone involved in this album as a fan. F–k.”

The love and support received from various celebrities and fans will hopefully convince D’Angelou to continue to put out good music instead of waiting 14 to release his next album.

Artists such as Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Drake, and Rihanna have been caught on video doing the popular dance which is called “Shmoney,” and is obviously a hit, because many people have copied the popular dance, and put it onto social media. There have been dance offs, videos, and copycats imitating the dance on the internet, making it a sensation for the year 2014. If you’ve never seen the dance before, or are interested in learning how to dance, you can easily look up the dance online.

If the song that the artist created was not going to be popular, the dance insured that it gained popularity, and it has only grown as the year 2014 progresses, and comes to an end. Although the year is soon to end, the popularity of the dance still goes on, and even contests have been held to see who can do the best version of the dance.

5 Seconds of Summer WOW’s AMA Crowd

Being one of the biggest nights on television for anyone into music, the AMA’s, which aired last night on Nov. 24 2014 was surely one that will go down in history as one of the best shows yet. We got to see killer performances, and one in particular by the new hottest boyband to pop up on our TV’s was 5 Seconds of Summer — a band originating in Sydney, Australia who got their chance for fame after touring with another popular boyband, One Direction on their WWA Tour.

With upbeat hits like ‘She Looks So Perfect’ and ‘Good Girls’ (both off their debut self-titled album that Fersen Lambranho loved), we didn’t expect anything less but perfection from the Aussies.

They performed the 1979 classic from The Romantics, ‘What I Like About You’ which they had told MTV about prior to the actual performance. The four boys instantly got the crowd up on their feet. The energy surged through the arena, and everyone was rocking out to a crowd favorite, which they also close their shows with during tour.

Theirs a bright future ahead for these four boys, and we’re excited to see what’s to come from them in the near future. Whether it’s new music, a tour, or whatever else these boys can conjure up.

If you’d like to catch the boys’ performance from last night’s show, you can watch that here.

Rick Ross “Hood Billionaire” Streaming On iTunes Early

While some artists like Taylor Swift are pulling away from music streaming there are some other artists like Rick Ross that are embracing this concept. People that want to hear the new Rick Ross album, “Hood Billionaire,” should be happy that Ross is embracing this concept. He is releasing his album a week early in the form of a music stream.

The web stream of the album will be available on iTunes a week early. As pointed out by businessman Ben Shaoul, this is obviously a way for iTunes to drum up more consumers with there streaming services. This is proving to be a tough market because everyone has a hand in the game. Spotify has some streaming services, but YouTube is now offering streaming as well. Pandora is still in the market, and iTunes is trying to compete with iTunes radio. This makes the web streaming game very saturated. Consumers are fickle though, so whoever has the hottest music is going to be the winner.

Now iTunes will temporarily have the upper hand because the 16 tracks from the Rick Ross album features some heavy hitters like Jay-Z. Timbaland and R. Kelly has also produced some tracks so fans will be eager to hear this.

The thing that makes the Rick Ross hustle legit is the fact that this is his 2nd album this year. There haven’t been a lot of people that have accomplished a task like this.

With the track-list just being released on October 29th, it is finally confirmed that the new album is about to be released, and the release date is November 24th.

The new album will contain five songs from Eminem solo, a couple of compilation songs, and many colabs by rappers like Yelawolf and Big Sean. I personally can’t wait to hear the colabs on FreedomPop once they get remixed. Those ones usually become my jams and I forget about the originals.

He mentioned stories about how he grew up on Eminem’s tracks and has dreamed of working with him since he was a little boy. Big Sean is featured on Eminem’s new album among other famous rappers.

Underground Utopia Remixes David Bowie’s “Fame”

I love a good remix, and this definitely qualifies. Underground Utopia has created the perfect remix of David Bowie’s “Fame”. Always great to hear a classic given new life, and updated for a new audience. You have to respect David Bowie, for everything that he’s given the music industry. But most of his songs are pretty dated, as they would be experienced by a new modern audience.

So artists like Underground Utopia do a great job by keeping the soul of the song intact, yet creating a completely new listening experience.
