We are hard at work here at VH1 headquarters burning off the calories we put on over the long Thanksgiving weekend by pulling together our lists of the Best Albums, Best Singles and Best Videos of 2013. As we take a look back, though, we couldn’t help but notice that some of 2013′s Most Anticipated Albums never actually came out! While we were blessed with tons of great albums to listen to this year, there’s still a part of us that can’t help but wonder “How come that Beyoncé album never came out, anyway?” (EDITOR’S NOTE, 12/13/13: Beyonce had an album, after all! She dropped her eponymous album tonight out of the clear blue!) Or, as Fred Willard’s character in A Mighty Wind would say, “Wha happened?”
Mariah Carey should be having a fantastic week. After all, she’s just dropped her new single, “The Art of Letting Go.” Unfortunately, the music legend is referring to herself as a “diva in distress.” The pop singer sounded off today on Facebook about how a new sound engineer made a massive error and loaded the wrong version of her new single for fans. And this drama is coming just days after she went after American Idol (and presumably Nicki Minaj) on a radio show!
Mariah Carey celebrated the release of her new single “The Art of Letting Go” by upping her already considerable glam game for an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon…But not before she posted a photo to Instagram showing off her fab physique in a very revealing (and certainly underwear-free) dress!
Long before he trademarked the rat face, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Stevie J. had another career as an uber successful music producer and industry inpersario! Way back in the mythical time we call the ’90s, Stevie was a head honcho at Bad Boy Entertainment, where he worked side-by-side with Diddy (or Puff Daddy, at the time) to bring us some of our favorite songs of the decade. In honor of Stevie’s birthday today, we’ve decided to but the love triangles and his infamous facial expression behind us and celebrate his STELLAR recording career. Read on to check 10 classics we owe to Stevie J!
A rock star performing on stage is like a bird in flight. They’re in the zone, on another plane, just totally and completely in the moment. And sometimes their clothes, well…they just can’t keep up! The end result? Wardrobe malfunctions.
We’re waiting with baited breath for VH1 You Oughta Know artist Lorde to drop her first album Pure Heroine on Monday! This exclusive stream whetted our appetites, but we’re gonna need a bigger bite of her soulful pop confection. Her first single “Royals” is currently duking it out with heavy hitters Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus for the top of the charts, so we’re expecting big things from her debut disc. In fact, we’re thinking that it’ll measure up to these 50 record breaking freshman releases!
