B. Smyth is a hot new artist whose infectious dance track “Twerkoholic” is heating up dancefloors on both sides of the Atlantic!
I was sent this video to post and at first I thought, “Oh, just another Twerk Song.” But this kid can really sing! As adults, we might not understand the whole “twerking” fad, but twerking has been around forever. This is nothing new.
Check out the official lyric video below. And if you’re into the twerking thing, B. Smyth aka @Therealbsmyth on Twitter is holding a Twerk Contest on his Twitter Page.
Singer Lauryn Hill, 38, celebrated her release from prison today with a new song entitled “Consumerism”. Like most of Hill’s songs, the single covers Hill’s obsession with a materialistic society.
Hill was convicted of income tax evasion in May. She served three months in federal prison after paying paid $900,000 in back taxes.
“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side,” Hill said in a press release. “Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level”.
Drake’s third album Nothing Was The Same leaked online Sunday night — a week ahead of its official release date.
SPIN magazine’s editors gave the disc a listen, then graded the album on Drake’s lyrical content, quality of production, narcissism, bragging, gay-baiting, and just about everything but his music.
Julianne Escobedo Shepherd was the most harsh in her criticism.
Giving Drake a 4 out of a possible 10, she lit into the Canadian rapper for “bragging about Ellen Degeneres’ love for his music,” and accusing him of hoping “to get the Macklemore treatment.” Macklemore is a rapper whose track “same Love” became the summer’s gay-anthem despite the gays accusing the rap group of exploiting the gay community.
Janelle Monáe adresses lesbian rumors in an interview with Pride Source. The rumors caught fire when Janelle dropped subtle hints on her new album Electric Lady, in stores now.
On her single “Q.U.E.E.N.” Janelle sings “Am I a freak because I love watching Mary?” and “Hey sister am I good enough for your heaven?” In the song “Givin Em What They Love,” Janelle teased her lesbian fans by singing about having “Undercover love” with a sexy woman.
Emo rapper Aubrey “Drake” Graham graces the September 2013 issue of Billboard magazine this week. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Drake said he is sleeping in the studio to complete his third album, Nothing Was the Same.
The album release has already been delayed once. “We have just 10 days before we turn it in,” Drake said. “I’m literally sleeping in the studio on an air mattress. We’re working 24-hour days to make sure the story is done, front to back. It has to be a new point of discovery.”
Nothing Was the Same is scheduled for release on September 24.

Aging rapper Jay Z put his narcissism on display at a Manhattan art gallery on Wednesday. The 44-year-old rapper lip synced his track “Picasso Baby” for 6 hours at Pace Art Gallery. The publicity stunt was intended to help boost sales of his twelfth studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. The album shipped platinum thanks to the 1 million advance copies purchased by Samsung to give away for free to Samsung Galaxy owners.
During his 6-hour repetitive performance of the same song, Jay Z invited observers to join him. Beyonce’s husband cheered on a break dancer, and at one point he was joined by performance artist Marina Abramovic.
A Complex magazine editor captured more Vines of Jay Z’s mind numbing performance after the break.
