EW's Grammy nominee Spotify playlist: Listen here

Even if you’re a full-on obsessive music fan, the Grammy nominations can present a daunting array of talent. Sure everyone’s heard the Hot 100 hits from Carly Rae and Taylor and Gotye, but what about Robert Glasper? Lamb of God? Sistema Bomb?

Ukrainian singer sues over 'Call Me Maybe'

Call me plagiarized?

That’s the claim behind Ukrainian pop star Aza’s lawsuit today. The singer accuses Carly Rae Jepsen of ripping off her tune “Hunky Santa” – which also features a “call me” call out – to create Jepsen’s blockbuster pop smash.
