Ariana Grande Previews Sassy Iggy Azalea-Assisted Single “Problem”: Listen

30864fae1c650035730ad8225dc694bc Ariana Grande Previews Sassy Iggy Azalea Assisted Single “Problem”: Listen

Breathe a sigh of relief, Arianators. Any concern that the 20-year-old had pulled a Miley Cyrus and turned her back on her previously wholesome ways (the sexy cover and Iggy Azalea feature raised the question) has been dispelled by the first taste of “Problem”. Sure, it’s sassy but this isn’t a huge leap in sound from Ariana Grande‘s Yours Truly LP.

“Head in the clouds got no weight in my shoulders,” Ari sings in her trademark Mariah Carey-tastic whistle register. “I should be wiser and realize that I’ve got one less problem without you.” And that’s where the trap-lite drop hits. It’s fairly tame but still different enough to prove that the rising diva is evolving and trying new things. I can’t wait to hear what Iggy adds to the track. Listen after the jump.

Boots Steps Out Of The Shadows On “A Day In The Life Of Jordan Asher”: Listen

0ccc3707e4b88e49ed719fbe77e931c4 Boots Steps Out Of The Shadows On “A Day In The Life Of Jordan Asher”: Listen

Shadowy producer Boots was a literal no-name when pop listeners found out he was behind the boards for a significant portion of Beyonce‘s self-titled album. Little by little, though, we’ve learned about the man, and now he has dropped a song with his full name in the title, making it that much harder to remember a time when nobody knew who the hell this Boots character was, and making it clear he doesn’t hope to replicate The Weeknd‘s early strategy of buzz via mystery.

On “A Day In The Life Of Jordan Asher,” Boots strikes his rap pose, calmly rhyming about everything from America’s working class to his luck with the ladies to a grisly NYC subway death that occurred in 2012. As with the rest of Boots’ material thus far, it stands on its own, regardless of the Bey connection.

The song is off Boots’ forthcoming self-produced, self-written WinterSpringSummerFall project, which will include previously heard tracks like “Ride Ride Ride” and “Dust.” Check it out below.

Iggy Azalea’s ‘The New Classic’: Review Revue

ae83940a96ce177536a5959f7d4a7a32 Iggy Azalea’s ‘The New Classic’: Review Revue

Iggy Azalea finally delivered her debut album The New Classic today (April 22), and it finds the Aussie model and MC weaving her rags-to-riches tale over top-notch pop production. While it never goes into good kid, m.A.A.d city levels of specificity, the LP is still an intriguing listen, showing how a female rapper not named Nicki can balance hip-hop “authenticity” with blatant pop chart aspirations. Rather interestingly, the fact that Iggy’s entire shtick is openly built on a fake Southern accent may actually make it easier for her to navigate that divide.

But that doesn’t mean she stuck the landing. We gave The New Classic a 2.5/5, saying “most of the album simply sounds stale” and that the reliance on lyrical generalities “makes Azalea’s Cinderella story seem rather ordinary.” That middle-of-the-road assessment seems to sum up the rather tepid tide of the reviews out there. Maybe she was just doomed from the get-go because of that audacious title.

Head below for a roundup of critical reactions to her debut.

:: Rolling Stone matched our score, highlighting her curious rap accent and shameless pop hooks, concluding, “If this is the future, it’s one strange place.”

:: HipHopDX likewise handed out a 2.5, opining, “The level of production and collaborators far outshines the work of the lead emcee.”

:: SPIN called it a “stone cold dud” and “a state of the art 2011 album” in their 4/10 review. “The New Classic establishes the Australian artist as a competent rapper with a decent ear for hooks, but that’s about it.”

:: Time says it’s “a paint-by-numbers exercise in what a modern rap album should be” and notes “she’s perhaps already run out of things to say on her supposed classic.”

:: Deadspin (apparently covering music now!) said, “It’s ultimately a missed opportunity to get to know more about an artist who’s very possibly more multifaceted than she lets on. Equal parts flaw and flair, it seems destined to take its place in hip-hop’s pantheon of albums with unfortunately overenthusiastic titles, alongside inductees like Slim Thug’s gold-selling Already Platinum and Puff Daddy’s forgotten Forever.”

:: The New York Times offered up a report card-style review with this final evaluation: “Student is an extremely hard worker, but so much so that what’s loudest much of the time is the labor involved, not the art itself. Student’s complete commitment to character and form compensate slightly for the unrelenting weirdness of this project.”

:: The Guardian was slightly more impressed, grading a 3/5. “Azalea’s rags-to-riches story shines on Work, but elsewhere her ‘bow down to a goddess’ schtick grows tiring.”

:: The Line Of Best Fit was the most positive of the bunch, scoring an 8/10 and calling it an “an ambitious pop-rap record” that could inspire listeners, suggesting listeners “Let her gospel be an allegory for your rise.”

Alexa Goddard Arrives With “Marilyn”: Watch The Lyric Video For Her Electro-Pop Debut

951247a0ee47fc006f2ff4ba91db68fb Alexa Goddard Arrives With “Marilyn”: Watch The Lyric Video For Her Electro Pop Debut

Alexa Goddard doesn’t want to be normal, she informs us on her debut single. She wants to be someone, like Marilyn Monroe. Lofty aspirations, for sure, but Alexa isn’t some wide-eyed newbie who’s just starting to daydream about fame and excess and the glamorous life. The 23 year old has been at it for a few minutes now, having done time as a “YouTube sensation” and featured on songs by Trans Siberian Orchestra (with whom the singer toured several years back) and fellow British artist Wiley.

So here we are with “Marilyn,” Goddard’s first proper, major label single. It’s not going to revolutionize the pop scene in any way, shape or form — and in fact, the opening lyrics (“Let’s go down to Carnaby, get fucked up like we’re royalty”) veer a bit too close to the Shamelessly Borrowing From Lorde‘s “Royals” department. But all in all, “Marilyn” is a harmless pop track that might please the casual tween-aged radio listener…or soccer moms looking for a slab of edginess to spice up their afternoon.

Listen to Alexa Goddard’s debut single “Marilyn” above.

Bad Suns’ “Salt” Gets A Dance Overhaul Courtesy Of Peter Thomas: Idolator Premiere

90e2700dd7a42b63c3baf4b546b77345 Bad Suns’ “Salt” Gets A Dance Overhaul Courtesy Of Peter Thomas: Idolator Premiere

Bad Suns really should be on your radar. The LA-based quartet’s Transpose EP landed at number 41 on the Billboard 200 and their debut single “Cardiac Arrest” made major waves on alternative radio. Throw in high-profile tour support slots for Fitz And The Tantrums and, currently, The 1975 and you have a band on the cusp of a major commercial breakthrough.

Their material is certainly catchy enough to crossover to top 40 radio and the guys have even called on Betty Who‘s right-hand man Peter Thomas to remix new single “Salt”. He gives the already synth-strewn anthem an irresistible new wave sheen that conjures English bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode (in their happier moments). Listen to the winning dance overhaul after the jump.

After the debut live performance of “Fancy” last month at the mtvU Woodies, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX brought the hyphy hair-flipper to Late Night, and today (April 22) they marked the release of The New Classic by performing it for the early risers watching Good Morning America. While the pop stars stuck with the Clueless visual aesthetic, this time the setting was the high school hallway, and everyone was decked out in black-and-white instead of Cher’s iconic yellow plaid.

Charli was sassy as ever, and Iggy seemed to be enjoying herself on the big day. Watch “Fancy” up top, and head below for Iggy’s interview about the new album.

Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” Video Is Probably The Worst Thing You’ll Watch All Week

0bf33227bf2560d00b3bcb2d5cd4c118 Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty” Video Is Probably The Worst Thing You’ll Watch All Week

“Oh, no — there’s dubstep?” Those were words muttered in our office — mind you, after a string of various other laments — upon watching Avril Lavigne‘s “Hello Kitty.” Apparently there’s a demand somewhere out there for yet another single and music video off the Canadian singer’s dearly departed, self-titled fifth album, so voila.

To be honest, I kind of shut down physically and emotionally after the first four seconds here. Has anyone reminded Avril that she’s nearly 30 lately? See if you fare any better by watching above, and keep this in mind: “Hello Kitty” took four people to write, including Chad Kroeger. Konichiwa, bitches.

Nicki Minaj Says “Hell No,” ‘The Pink Print’ Will Not Have A “Starships” Or “Super Bass”

00ef3e1c8ff84d5cf8681d3bcfd163cb Nicki Minaj Says “Hell No,” ‘The Pink Print’ Will Not Have A “Starships” Or “Super Bass”

The “Nicki Minaj is returning to her hip-hop roots” narrative is already in high gear, even though Minaj has yet to officially release a track from her forthcoming album The Pink Print. But the storyline is undeniable, from the Jay Z-referencing album title to the furious rhymes she has unleashed so far this year on tracks like “Lookin’ Ass” and “Chi-Raq,” and even factoring in her uncharacteristically toned-down new looks. But now Nicki herself has confirmed she’s focusing on rap and isn’t worrying so much about pop sheen this time around.

When asked whether the new LP will have a song like “Starships” or “Super Bass,” Minaj responded with a simple “Hell no.” “The tracks on Pink Print are back to my hip-hop roots,” she told MTV in a recent interview. “And I don’t think it’s something that I’m necessarily trying to do. As soon as I started working on my new album, that’s just the songs that I’ve been writing.”

“I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there,” she added. “You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.’”

[via MTV]
