With Grammy performances, high profile rants, new fashion lines, and fresh songs, Kanye West is having one of the biggest weeks of all time, y’all! And tonight he kept the streak alive with an intensely passionate medley on the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special. Yeezus balanced the throwback College Dropout track “Jesus Walks” with a tender reading of “Only One,” his recent collaboration with Paul McCartney. But the real highlight came with the TV debut of new track “Wolves” alongside Sia and Vic Mensa.
It’s safe to say Yeezy season has officially returned, Thursday afternoon not only did Kanye unveil his first official collab with Adidas but he premiered brand new music as well. The new song is entitled ‘Wolves,’ and features the always avant-garde Sia, and fellow Chicago rapper Vic Mensa. ‘Wolves’ is slated to be the very first track on Kanye’s upcoming but yet-to-be-titled album.
Katy Perry is Super Bowl Sunday ready down to her toes, N.E.R.D. goes under the sea for their new “Squeeze Me” video, J. Cole gives back to single mothers and more on Last Lap.
From Sia and Beyonce to YOK alums like Hozier and Sam Smith, 2014 was full of hit singles from a variety of artists. There’s no denying songs like “Chandelier,” “Take Me To Church” and “Stay With Me” blew up the charts this year, but what about the other tracks that were relegated to album cut status? We’d like to point your attention to 15 gems hiding in some of this year’s biggest discs. We’d bet that they would’ve been smashes…if only they were released as singles! Read on to see the deep cuts that we think could have made the grade as major hit singles in 2014.
Wind down this Wednesday with music’s Last Lap: Lana Del Rey gets frisky on the cover of Rolling Stone, Drake shows off his acting chops for the ESPYs, Lorde is the next artist to get trolled by “Weird Al” Yankovic and more.
Good news, Navy! Rihanna‘s Instagram account may still be in flux, but at least we might be closer to getting something that resembles new music (penned by the woman who brought us “Diamonds”). Of course, Sia is more than simply the writer behind Unapologetic‘s inspirational single. While she’s written for the likes of Bad Gal RiRi, Beyoncé and Britney Spears, she is a stunning vocalist with four solo albums to her name. Her fifth, 1000 Forms of Fear, will be released this summer, and its lead single “Chandelier” is already a must-have on summer playlists, with a beautiful music video featuring Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler.
We have already been pushing Sia‘s “Chandelier” as an early contender for Song of the Summer, and now that the full video has arrived we’re even that much more in love. Reality television fans, get ready. This one is for you.
With the exception of Pharrell, it’s been a slow start to 2014 in terms of new music we want to listen to while jumping around our bedroom. Thankfully Sia just went and infused our never-ending winter with some much-needed powerful pop, sure to carry us into spring. At the surface, “Chandelier” — which Sia performed at the 2015 Grammy awards with Kristen Wiig and Maddie Ziegler –is an unapologetic party anthem that celebrates excessive drinking and hazardous at-home aerial activities. But with the Australian’s soaring vocals it becomes a metaphor for much more.
