Drake standing in the way
all the better for it
Sheeran and Drake
TFN it is Drake Vs Sheeran
the band had passed 5 billion streams
“One Dance” has proven itself with the stamina for long term success.
He treats us like a one night stand
44 consecutive weeks
The live show will tell the tale
I can hear the appeal
As static as possible
I could have sworn the album was a misstep
They gave up gravity for fun
dipping their beaks in the same well
all disco, dance, neo-soul
How much longer can “One Dance” maintain it?
rock and roll is niche programing and hip hop isn’t.
I don’t like it that much… very strange…
It could be the US with equal ease
Views has grown on me after hearing “Hype” on SNL
About as good as you are gonna get in the 21st century
It is getting very old
I wonder how much more it would have sold if it was as good as that solo mixtape from 2015
It drags too much for a hit album
Next week do we expect Drake to own top single and top album?
“I don’t really talk to Nicki. Another person I have a lot of love for … “
Integrity is nice, but not at this price
Posturing is not the same as performing.
Drake has a new album (not mixtape) and that my dear friends, is that.
A pretty good pop moment
Only the Drake # 1 is even slightly contemporary
While everyone was expecting him to comment on his team victory, he went very, very political.
Here he is pissed at POTUS for preferring Kendrick, Meek Mill for being a punk, and anybody who doubts that Canada is the last frontier of ra
It seems there’s no in between among female artists, they are either too superstars or second-line-on-Coachella-poster.
There are so many outlets, so many blogs, websites, magazines which need the attention in an over-saturated market, that necessarily anything, yes about anything, passes for news
The sheer wealth of great material is astounding, from East to West to Mid West , it remains an astounding time for the genre. Rap in 2015 is like rock in 1979, ridiculously diverse, astoundingly prolific, relentless brilliant
A snarky put down of hip hop entourages with a pretty good hook and, of course, Future rapping “What a great time to be alive”, and Drake putting the breaks on what hip hop JV teams think they are getting – B+
it’s Drake’s world right? With yet another Top 10 hit (his 14th in two years), his new album with Future undoubtedly includes another couple of hits 9’nig rings” for sure). Biggest ale star in the US today till The Weeknd proves otherwise.
It might dilute the water a little for the eagerly anticipated Drake album, even if his last mixtape just added to the anticipation, but for Future, it moves him into the big time.
‘The decision to not have Drake participate in the Tidal stream has nothing to do with Apple or Drake’s deal, said Drake’s manager Future the Prince to BuzzFeed. ‘Point blank, 100 percent. I made a business decision. Apple doesn’t have the power to stop us from being part of a live stream. The only people that have the power to do that are Cash Money and Universal, and they’re our partners.’
As we pass the half way point of 2015, here comes the latest news: over trillion songs streamed so far. Last year had a total of 440 Billion over the entire 12 months which seems to me to prove that we are looking at the of the game when it comes to streaming. This means over a year streaming will have increased by 400%.
Still, Drake’s response to Meek’s claim that Drake didn’t write his own raps seems a little overdone. Meek really isn’t in Drake’s league so the sneer seems a little stuck on Drake’s face, like his smiling but very very stiffly, not at all amused, you know. Why so glum, kid? You know the first rule of fight club, never punch down, why are you punching down??
But Taylor Swift has now apologized to Minaj, tweeting ‘I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki.’ Sorry for what? Wasn’t Minaj the attacker in the story?
She now has a Tumblr page with heavy traffic, and was discovered by A$AP, her first famous customer. Then Rihanna saw his mouthpiece, and from there, Dolly became the grill-maker for celebrities. All of her creations are customized and handmade, and are unique pieces, she said to Vogue magazine she will never make the same one again. Using her dentistry practice, she makes a mold of someone’s mouth and then sculpts the piece using chromium chromate, then 18K gold, yellow or white.
In a first, the Canadian master had a sign language interpreter on stage with him as he made a dash through the heart of the set, “Worst Behavior: through “Hell Ya Fucking Right” with “Tuesday” on one end and “Started From The Bottom” on the other and right in the middle his masterpiece “Hold On, We’re Coming On” and right here Governors Ball came into its own
Drake – 6pm In New York – Oh, you’ve gotta love it, another self portrait as Drake opens his diary and rhymes his way through at the end of his masterful mix tape. An open so strong it remains one of the best of the year -yes, THE MIX TAPE – A
So here we go, sixteen days and the nyc festival of the year hits and I will take a closer look at each day. It sure seems to me, the big draw closers on Friday should be a repeat of Skrillex versus Jack White last year, Drake is going to have 75% of the attendants. Me? I haven’t seen MMJ since New Year’s Eve 2008 and I saw Drake twice last year…
You can’t play without a scorecard fellow pop pickers, and as the terrain of new releases changes like at the speed of a blink of the eye, here are two newer new releases.
