Stop the presses! All y’all news organizations who already printed your Top 10 Lists for 2013 need to go back and print an addendum, stat, because Beyoncé dropped an album out of the blue (Ivy!) overnight. Sure, a few weeks ago we (lightly) admonished King Bey for failing to release an album in 2013, but as of this morning, we BOW DOWN before King Bey and take everything back. Beyoncé’s self-titled Beyoncé is a game-changer not only because it broke every rule in the book about music marketing, but because it arrived complete with VIDEOS FOR EVERY SONG ON THE ALBUM!

There’s no way we can close out 2013 without looking back at all the amazing music that came out this year. No matter which genre you pump the most, 2013 offered more than its fair share of hits to play in your ear. But as you sift through everything you listened to this year, you’re certain to have at least one track on your favorite album that you think should’ve reached the masses.
Bob Dylan is an artist who does things on his own schedule.

Eminem took to the stage with Rick Rubin on Saturday Night Live last night (with host Kerry Washington) to perform his new single, “Berzerk.” While the theme of the song might be about going crazy and cutting loose–and while the tune itself might harken back to the classic days of raw hip hop–is it possible that Eminem phoned in his performance? Some viewers thought Marshall Mathers wasn’t spitting rhymes so much as he was lip synching them.
Miley Cyrus sure knows how to get attention. The singer, who is enjoying a good month thanks to the success of Bangerz, hasn’t stopped grabbing headlines since her controversial VMA performance. Now, she’s finding a way to make her mark on Halloween with some explicit jack-0′-lanterns. Ohh la la.

Believe it or not, when they first hit the scene back in 1968, the name Black Sabbath was considered to be offensive to a wide swath of people. Oh, how far we’ve come since then.
John Legend always makes fans swoon, but with his latest album Love In The Future, he proves he’s just as romantic in real life as he is in his music. The album was inspired by his relationship with his supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen, who joined him in a very intimate video for “All Of Me.”
