Future’s ‘Honest’: Stream The Full Album

bf354c3baf8f42da1a5e827bd212c560 Future’s ‘Honest’: Stream The Full Album

Future is streaming his long-delayed, highly anticipated album Honest ahead of its April 22 release. We could spend a whole post just talking about the features — there’s Kanye West, Pharrell, Drake, Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Wiz Khalifa and even Andre 3000 (although, that last one was purposely left off the stream) — but it’s more rewarding to absorb the project as a whole.

It’s such a varied and sprawling offering, going from the cold-as-fuck “Move That Dope” on one end of the spectrum to the doting “I Won” on the other end, and it covers just about everything else in between. It’s the type of thing that could only be pulled off by this robo-crooning, hollering, ATL trap astronaut.

Stream the album below.

Pharrell Becomes A Balladeer On “Here”: Listen

525ae35c9f19b1ee601fa0b8e203f8db Pharrell Becomes A Balladeer On “Here”: Listen

Pharrell is looking to keep his soundtrack streak alive with “Here,” from The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s soundtrack. While he was behind the scenes for Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar‘s “It’s On Again” from the film, for this one he’s the primary vocalist, teaming up once again with his G I R L friend Hans Zimmer on the arrangement.

And, whoa. This is no lean funk pastiche or disco-cheez revival — it’s a straight-up soft rock ballad, with Pharrell legit crooning like he’s a long-lost member of Savage Garden or some shit. It’s a tad jarring, but it proves that even after “Move That Dope,” the guy is as mom-friendly as ever.

Hear “Here” below.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack is out April 22.

Sky Ferreira has premiered the stylish video for “I Blame Myself,” with some help from online fashion retailer SSENSE, who styled her for the shoot (and all her getups are available for purchase for any Sky stans and/or budding fashion icons out there). Ferreira owns the camera for this Compton-based video — so many hair flips! Dance breakdowns! — and ends up approaching the same “wimpy pop star coming off as totally badass” vibe that Michael Jackson channeled in “Bad.” Needless to say, it is great.

The visual was shot earlier this month by Grant Singer, who has directed Ferreira’s last six videos. Watch it over at SSENSE, and check out the behind-the-scenes-footage below.

And for more about this song and her album, check out our recent interview with Sky.

‘The Voice’: Top 12 Advance As Josh Kaufman’s Bruno Mars Cover Brings The House Down

0527b45acdd0a2c3b6672691ad300e52 ‘The Voice’: Top 12 Advance As Josh Kaufman’s Bruno Mars Cover Brings The House Down

On Tuesday night (April 15), Usher‘s team was the only group left to compete in The Voice Playoffs (at least the ones where coaches Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine were in charge of the votes). There were plenty of ambitious attempts by the contestants, and although not all were hits, Team Usher proved to be a force this season!

T.J. Wilkins, Melissa Jimenez, Stevie Jo, Bria Kelly and Josh Kaufman all performed for Ursh’s affections, leaving him with a tough choice at the end of the evening. Here’s how they did, and how The Voice Live Rounds Top 12 shaped up.

T.J. Wilkins
T.J. Wilkins begins the night with Rufus & Chaka Khan’s “Tell Me Something Good,” a hit penned by Stevie Wonder. It is the first of several tall orders throughout the night, and T.J. delivers the goods.

“The audience loved you,” says Shakira. “I did too, because you’re so soulful and so committed.”

“You are a breath of fresh air because you really want to entertain people,” says Adam.

“That was solid,” Blake says, adding that although he once questioned Usher’s choice to advance T.J. over Biff Gore, “I’m on board now, 100 percent.”

“You completely killed it,” says Usher. “Unfortunately I gotta pick two that leave, and three that stay. This is going to be hard.”

Melissa Jimenez
Usher’s Melissa Jimenez is trying to make the transition to “MJ,” but as Music Box learned the hard way: however Carson Daly introduced you in the Blind Auditions, that’s the name you’re stuck with. Melissa/MJ does reveal a new fun fact, though: that she was once pulled up on stage to dance during Usher’s Truth tour! The whole situation is very reminiscent of Courteney Cox and Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark” moment, which is never a bad thing.

Melissa sings a stripped down version of Beyonce’s “Halo,” and, sadly, viewers can feel every bump along the way.

“It was a very brave move to strip this down,” says Shakira. “I think it was a great payoff.”

“There’s no way to really excel on this show unless you take risks,” says Adam, but notes he heard some problems. “I think there were moments that were really beautiful, I think there were moments that had trouble.”

“I thought it was solid,” counters Blake. “There was one moment where you probably didn’t get a big enough breath to get to that note,” he adds.

“You understood that this was a live or die moment,” says Usher. “It is the effort that you have put in it that has got you this far.” He then goes on to tell her to love music however this nets out, which is a good hint to begin preparations for her trip home.

Stevie Jo
The soul singer with heavy metal lineage, Stevie Jo, is still around, despite only earning one chair turn in the Blind Auditions. He makes a risky choice with blues classic “The Thrill is Gone” by B.B. King, and does alright. The performance has some shaky notes, though his falsetto is on point.

“I like seeing Stevie Jo perform because it’s like he’s sneaking up on a rabbit,” says Blake, which is the most Oklahoman compliment he’s ever given. “I know you’re the real deal.”

“When you’re singing the blues, to me, all technical analysis goes out the window. It’s about how you emote,” says Adam.

“I enjoyed many things about your performance,” says Shakira. “I enjoyed your falsettos and your raspy voice.”

“I am a fan of how courageous you are as a vocalist,” says Usher. ”I think you did the record great justice.”

Bria Kelly
Raspy blues singer Bria Kelly takes on a classic by The Rolling Stones. The four-chair turner sings “Wild Horses” and, other than using her guitar solely to accessorize her outfit (girl, at least leave your hands near the strings if you want to be convincing!), it was her strongest performance to date.

“I was worried about you last time because it was as if you weren’t you,” says Adam. “I’m really pleased to say that you’re back.”

“You have an unbelievable voice. I don’t know how you do what you do,” says Shakira.

“I’ve stolen everybody that you’ve sang against,” notes Blake. “Looking back on that, it may be because you make people step up.”

“You were able to shine in it and make it your own,” says Usher, who is beaming at her progress.

Josh Kaufman
Closing out Playoffs Round Uno is Josh Kaufman, the soul singer stolen from Team Adam in the second iteration of the Battle Round. Josh sings Bruno Mars’ “It Will Rain,” which is another challenging choice. The newest Team Usher member absolutely wows, though, and has Adam questioning the choice to give him up.

“Let me just remove the dagger from my heart,” says Adam of his former contestant. “I’m so happy that you’re still in this, because you deserve to be.”

“You are one of the best singers on The Voice this year,” says Blake “I wish that there were still steals left.”

“I think that you’re so talented,” says Shakira. “I could tell how comfortable you were and how effortless it was for you to hit all of those high notes.”

“You did an incredible job,” says Coach Usher. “It’s you, me and Adam that made that moment a reality,” he adds, fearing the tough choice he will soon face.

“I have to make a decision tonight, and I make it heavily,” says Usher before choosing his final three. “I hope you guys carry everything that I have taught you.”

They did it!:
Bria Kelly
Josh Kaufman
T.J. Wilkins

Maybe they can use those Usher lessons at home:
Melissa Jimenez
Stevie Jo

Now, at long last, it’s on to the live shows! The coaches step out of the mix as the audience take the power position when The Voice live shows premiere on Monday.

Whose team do you think is looking like the toughest contender?

‘Glee’ Recap: It’s All About Sex, Mercedes’ Virginity & Artie’s Clap In “Tested”

9dc0078712b49f233dc932b49917f01f ‘Glee’ Recap: It’s All About Sex, Mercedes’ Virginity & Artie’s Clap In “Tested”

Once again, the Glee kids are tackling a weighty issue because God forbid they keep it light. Every single storyline focuses on sex and how the characters either feel about having it or not having it, as the case may be. For all the talk about doing the nasty, we never actually see anybody getting it on, alas. But, I digress. So, let’s talk about what we do see.

The episode starts with some bizarre, black and white, WWII-style newsreel footage. It’s a public service announcement about STDs. It features all the Glee boys dressed as sailors. This oddity sets the tone for the rest of the show.

In a super cheerful voiceover, Blaine (Darren Criss) gushes about how he’s basically eating his way through the city. It culminates with him admitting to an addiction to cronuts. The bottom line is that Blaine’s getting pudgy. Or, at least, he’s pooching out his six pack and we see his pants split.

Artie’s (Kevin McHale) own voiceover tells us that he’s so popular at film school because he’s dating three artsy girls, but Julie’s the one he really likes. Then, we see him in the editing room with Julie, as he has her help him make his blatant ripoff of American Beauty. It’s tiresome, but we struggle through. As an homage to Artie’s poonhound status, he then sings Robert Palmer‘s “Addicted To Love.” They have a moment in the editing room and Artie asks her out, but Julie tells him she doesn’t date coworkers. Smart girl.

As a result of his newfound compulsive eating, Blaine furiously inhales a bag of Cheetos at NYADA’s workout room (?) while watching Kurt (Chris Colfer) get fawned over by other dudes.

Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) make out and they get hot and heavy until Sam suggests they have sex. She then confesses she’s a virgin and wants to wait. This leads to Sam at dinner with Artie, Kurt and Blaine. He asks for a recommendation for a clinic to get an STD test.

Suddenly, Artie is at the doctor’s office hearing the news that he has chlamydia. He freaks out. Back at the loft, he confesses it to the guys. We learn that he doesn’t use condoms. Sam is outraged. Artie’s face drops when he learns he has to tell the girls he has chlamydia. Artie tells the first of the girls and she freaks out and dumps him. The next girl, Jessica, is shockingly mature about it and heads to the free clinic to get tested. Conveniently, at that moment, Julie appears to say she changed her mind and wants to date him.

About to walk into Mercedes’ church, Sam shows her his clean bill of health. They go inside and sit in a pew. The charismatic preacher mesmerizes Sam and he is doubly floored when Mercedes gets up to sing Foreigner‘s “I Want to Know What Love Is.”

In fencing class, Kurt shows off his bare chest while Blaine hides his alleged chub. Back at the apartment, they have a weird conversation about dinner and agree to go on a movie date. Kurt goes to look up showtimes on Blaine’s computer and stumbles across a porn site Blaine was perusing. This, of course, leads to an argument. Kurt storms out because they haven’t been having sex. This show just keeps taking one weird turn after another.

Mercedes and Rachel (Lea Michele) have a conversation about Rachel’s first time having sex, with Finn (Cory Monteith). The scene is pretty uneventful, but we get to see these two being buds.

Back in fencing class, Kurt’s still mad at Blaine. To the tune of Pat Benetar‘s “Love Is A Battlefield,” they duke it out. They continue to fight and things get heated. From there, Mercedes and Sam turn up at the Spotlight diner. Kurt’s their server but steps away when Artie and Julie arrive for dinner and seats them. Throughout his date, Artie is preoccupied with his chlamydia. He immediately tells Julie that they should wait 7 to 10 days before having sex. Wow, that’s some serious game, Artie. No wonder the ladies are throwing themselves at him.

Sam and Mercedes then launch into her version of Janet Jackson’s ’80s ballad “Let’s Wait A While.” Artie joins in the song. Julie seems like she is wildly uncomfortable until she suddenly joins in the singing. Guys, whenever I’m on a Tinder date and the guy’s getting a little too frisky, I always find it effective to start crooning this little ditty. #BonerKiller

Back in the apartment, Mercedes and Sam make out and stop to have yet another conversation about sex. She confesses that she wants to wait until she’s married. Mercedes is insane. Have we learned nothing from Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey? Sam walks off, disappointed.

Meanwhile, things are quite tense between Kurt and Blaine. They argue and Blaine says he feels like Kurt doesn’t need him any more. Blaine admits the he’s feeling insecure and doesn’t want Kurt to outgrow him. It ends with a tearful hug.

Randomly, Artie admits to Julie that he has chlamydia. He then admits that he slept with a bunch of girls. He says he just want to be honest. She’s understandably grossed out. He had no responsibility to tell her this. Ugh, this is so stupid. Kids, please take note.

Mercedes arrives at the apartment to find it filled with candles and Sam waiting in the living room. He gives her a speech about how he is willing to wait. They’re going to see if they can make this work. Later, she tells Rachel, who happens to mention in passing that she and Sam had a fleeting flirtation. Rachel admits that she’s not yet ready to date again.

Back at another all-boys dinner, Blaine’s doing some weird cleanse. Artie says he’s going to give up being “a film school player.” So the moral of the story is, nobody’s getting laid. Not now, not ever.

Beyonce & Jay Z Reportedly Plotting Joint Summer Tour

125d67c9de8dee306008a82690110041 Beyonce & Jay Z Reportedly Plotting Joint Summer Tour

The Mr. & Mrs. Carter Show could be coming to stadiums this summer. Beyonce and her husband Jay Z are set to announce a 20-date US summer tour starting in June, according to Page Six. The New York Post‘s sources even indicate that the trek will include a July 4 date in New York City.

Both artists finished their respective world tours recently (Jay in January, Bey in March), and some of the highlights of those runs came when the other half would show up unannounced for a live collaboration between the married stars. In addition, if this tour is a reality, it would be Hov’s third live partnership in the past year: last summer he went on a joint summer tour with Justin Timberlake, and at SXSW last month he performed Watch The Throne with Kanye West.

Miley Cyrus has been hospitalized after suffering a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. The twerkaholic was forced to cancel her Bangerz tour stop at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, the second date she has scratched due to ill health in just over a week.

“Cyrus has been hospitalized for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics and has been placed on medical rest by her doctors,” read statement from the Sprint Center. The 21-year-old also apologized to disappointed fans via social media. “Kansas I promise Im as [heartbroken] as you are,” Miley tweeted. “I wanted so badly 2 b there 2night. Not being with yall makes me feel shittier than I already do.” She later posted a pic from her hospital bed holding an octopus toy.

The “We Can’t Stop” diva has been plagued with ill health recently. Miley canceled a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina a little over a week ago when she was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed bed rest. See Miley’s hospital tweets after the jump.

John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped-Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

683e7b05dfcbbd10b3b4ead7871934e4 John Mayer Turns Beyonce’s “XO” Into A Stripped Back Folk Song: Watch His Live Cover

It’s time to welcome John Mayer to the ever-expanding Bey Hive. “The best thing about Beyonce? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw,” the singer-songwriter raved in a tweet on Saturday (April 12), before unveiling his live cover of the Ryan Tedder-penned hit at a gig in Adelaide, Australia last night.

Katy Perry‘s ex stripped “XO” back to its raw, emotional core — performing the song with only his guitar and harmonica for accompaniment. And it survives the genre switch exceedingly well. Regardless of how you feel about John’s uber-sincere schtick, his folk ballad interpretation reminds you that Bey’s love song has an unusually melancholy underbelly. Watch up top.

Do you like John Mayer’s cover? Let us know in the comments below.

Ariana Grande’s New Single Is Called “Problem” And *Could* Feature Iggy Azalea

4523eaa4500e1b85e55d5f2da83f9680 Ariana Grande’s New Single Is Called “Problem” And *Could* Feature Iggy Azalea

Ariana Grande has some bad news for Chris Brown. It looks like their postponed duet “Don’t Be Gone Too Long”, which Breezy’s camp previewed earlier today (April 15), won’t be the rising diva’s new single after all. Ari jumped on Twitter this afternoon to let fans know that she’s going with a song called “Problem” or “#Problem” instead. She also hinted that it will be released “very soon”.

The change of plan makes a mysterious Twitter exchange between Ariana and Iggy Azalea extremely interesting. Last night, the Australian femcee tweeted the motorbike babe: “*nudge nudge*”, to which she replied “*cough cough*”. Could the ladies be hinting at a collaboration? It would certainly be an explosive mix. There are huge expectations for Ari’s sophomore set and the rap queen’s latest single “Fancy” is shaping up to a massive hit. See Ari’s trail of Twitter hints after the jump.

Are you here for an Iggy/Ariana collab? Let us know in the comments below.
