The ’90s stage a comeback in Jennifer Hudson’s new music for “Walk It Out,” her Timbaland and J-Roc produced single.

Directed by Director X, the man behind Iggy Azalea’s Clueless-themed “Fancy” music video, “Walk It Out” opens with J-Hud waking up and going for a sassy stroll down the streets of Chicago. Thankfully, Timbaland — who is also featured on the track — keeps his appearances to a minimum, allowing the American Idol alum to truly shine.  READ FULL STORY

Ryan Hemsworth and Tinashe drop 'One for Me' -- VIDEO

Canadian DJ/producer Ryan Hemsworth has been making waves in the underground club scene for the past couple of years, but recently he’s taken a turn toward pop at the same time as pop’s been showing interest in the kind of spacey beats he specializes in. For his pristinely chill new single “One for Me,” he recruited R&B vocalist Tinashe (who you may know from her Schoolboy Q-featuring single “2 On,” which recently got an unofficial Drake remix) to add breathy vocals that recall the quieter side of the Aaliyah catalog. The video follows Hemsworth through a typical day of a buzzy young beatsmith in Montreal, which includes video chatting with a dog, cruising around town in a Lambo, and enjoying a plate of crudites.

Ariana Grande teams up with Iggy Azalea for new single 'Problem'

ariana-grande

Ariana Grande’s 2013 debut album Yours Truly was a frustrating one — she clearly has the chops to make waves in the pop world, but it was deeply unclear who she really was as an artist. Perhaps she’s doing some soul-searching, because her new single “Problem,” which just dropped today, is a dramatic reinvention.

Prince announces new album and deluxe 'Purple Rain' reissue

They say time heals all wounds, though the break between Prince and his original label Warner Bros. Records seemed beyond repair: So unhappy was the Purple One with his label bosses that he painted the word “SLAVE” on his face during most of his public appearances in 1993. But the two sides have figured out a way to sort things out, with Prince fans emerging as the big winners.

Least surprising news of the year: Taylor Swift is super rich

Taylor Swift is fantastically popular, a cultural juggernaut whose ubiquity has never seemed to quench the populace’s thirst for more. But as plenty of fame-soaked cautionary tales have taught us, that level of exposure doesn’t always equal financial solvency.

Of course, Swift doesn’t have that problem. At all. According to a list just published by Billboard, Swift was the top-earning musician in 2013, raking in $39,699,575.60 (specific!) based on album sales, touring revenue, publishing fees, and royalties from airplay, digital streaming and downloads.

That does not include any money Swift might have collected from sponsorship deals, corporate gigs, or whatever back end she still may be earning from Valentine’s Day. Also, because Billboard uses a standard methodology for all artists across the board (assuming, for example, a 20 percent artists’ take on album sales), it’s easy to believe that Swift’s intake was even higher, as she most likely has a better royalty rate than your average country-pop megastar. Another thing to note? She gives a lot of it awayREAD FULL STORY
