Video: Kanye West - Follow God

Kanye West has shared the music video for “Follow God,” the Jesus Is King song where he raps, “I was screaming at my dad/He told me it ain’t Christlike.” Fittingly, West’s father, Ray West, stars in the video. The visual closes with a message from Kanye West: “My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming.... It took me 42 years to realize that my dad was my best friend.”

Kaos Nightclub and Dayclub at the Palms is closing

Red Rock Resorts is closing Kaos Nightclub and Dayclub at the Palms.
On Tuesday, Red Rock reported a net loss of $26.8 million in the third quarter, down $51.9 million from the same period last.....

While Palms has experienced exceptional growth across both the gaming and non-gaming segments of the business, the expense side of the business has been challenging to date, due in large part to the entertainment and fixed cost structure associated with KAOS. Therefore, we have decided to take some time to reassess the programming and use of those venues going forward. In the interim, we intend to use the venues for private meeting space and special events, in addition to everyday resort pool operations.”

The multi-level 73,000-square-foot club opened in April 2019 as part of the $690 million remodel of the property. The dayclub and nightclub feature two main pools with numerous side pools and was designed by the award-winning design firm Friedmutter Group.

Kanye West's 'Jesus Is King' Arrives at No. 1 Debut on Billboard

West matches Eminem for the most consecutive No. 1 debuts on the chart.

Kanye West returns to a familiar spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as his latest release, Jesus Is King, debuts at No. 1. It’s his record-tying ninth consecutive debut at No. 1, matching Eminem’s still-active streak for the longest in the chart’s history.

Jesus Is King was released on Oct. 25 via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings and earned 264,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 31, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 109,000 were in album sales, while the rest was powered largely by streaming activity.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Nov. 9-dated chart (where Jesus Is King bows to No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Nov. 5.

Of Jesus Is King’s total unit start of 264,000, album sales comprise 109,000, TEA units equal 3,000 and SEA units total 151,000. The latter sum translates to 196.9 million on-demand audio streams for the album’s 11 tracks.

Rage Against the Machine to Reunite for 2020 Coachella

The year of amazing reunions rolls on with news Friday morning (Nov. 1) that Rage Against the Machine will reunite for a pair of 2020 headlining slots at the Coachella Festival.

An industry source familiar with the festival confirmed the booking to Billboard after the news broke earlier in the day via a post on an unverified Instagram account under the group's name.

That post also noted three other shows, two of which are in towns along the Texas/Mexico border; at press time, Billboard had not confirmed the veracity of those dates.

The source verified the Apr. 10 and 17 Coachella dates, though the festival has not yet announced its 2020 lineup. The three other cities cited in the Instagram post -- which featured the same photo of Chilean protesters taking to the streets to demand politcal reforms posted by guitarist Tom Morello earlier in the week -- are El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; and Phoenix, which all have arenas and stadiums where the stridently political, outspoken band could potentially play.

Chance the Rapper, MadeinTYO, DaBaby - Video for ‘Hot Shower’

The three hip-hop artists play host to several rowdy dance parties in a diner, a gymnasium, a race track and a courtroom. There’s also a loose plot that follows Chance’s scuzzy lawyer trying to borrow money from him, but that doesn’t have much to do with anything besides Chance’s inability to pick up the phone.

Trent Reznor Breaks Silence on ‘Undeniably Hooky’ ‘Old Town Road’

When Trent Reznor first heard “Old Town Road,” he was surprised. The song used a short section of banjo from “34 Ghosts IV,” a track off of Nine Inch Nails’ mostly instrumental 2008 album Ghosts I–IV that Lil Nas X and producer YoungKio had souped up with trap beats and an unforgettable chorus. Hearing his music out of context, Reznor’s gut reaction was less critical than visceral.

“At first, when you hear your stuff turned into something else, it always feels awkward because it’s something that intimately came from you in some way,” Reznor tells Rolling Stone. He likens it to being taken aback at hearing the way Johnny Cash turned his sparsely gothic Downward Spiral track “Hurt,” which references drug use, into an acoustic country love song. “You feel a little bit violated, you know?” he laughs. “And then you get over that, and you realize it has become something else, and the Johnny Cash thing is incredible. It’s very flattering.

“The music from Ghosts that turned into ‘Old Town Road’ certainly didn’t come from as intimate a place as the song ‘Hurt’ did, but it’s still something that I remember what I was thinking about when we did it and then you hear it turned into this other thing — it feels strange at first,” he continues. “But I thought he did a good job with that.”

The Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin - RITMO

Black Eyed Peas have joined forces with J Balvin for a brand new single, “RITMO (Bad Boys for Life).” The upbeat track, which samples Corona’s “The Rhythm of the Night,” will appear on the soundtrack to Bad Boys for Life, which stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and arrives in theaters January 10, 2020.

In the official music video for the song, directed by Colin Tilley, the musicians perform the track in a neon-lit room with futuristic lights, costumes and Tron-esque dancers. The flashy, colorful video is intercut with clips from the film itself, mostly showcasing Smith and Lawrence in various car chases.

“I wanted to reimagine ‘The Rhythm of the Night’ by Corona and give it a minimal, futurist, afro-fused reggaeton vibe,” Black Eye Peas frontman will.i.am said in a statement. “The final song and video feel like the classic next level futurism that the Black Eyed Peas are all about.”

DDJ-XP2 Official Introduction with Mr Switch and Tigerstyle

Double Trouble: Meet the DDJ-XP2 DJ controller for rekordbox dj and Serato DJ Pro software.
This low-latency, highly robust unit maximizes new versions of both DJ performance applications.

Raise your game with the DDJ-XP2. Whether you use rekordbox dj or Serato DJ Pro, you can get the most from the new features in the latest versions of both DJ applications with this upgraded DJ controller. The DDJ-XP2 adds to the functionality of the popular DDJ-XP1 but retains the solid build quality and intuitive layout of the original unit.

Let your fingers fly at 32 robust, multicolored Performance Pads (16 on each deck) and enjoy lightning-fast responses. Thanks to its sturdy construction, with a non-slip rubber surround, the DDJ-XP2 allows you to hit as hard as you like. Get creative with tactile control of the Key Shift and Key Sync features in either of the compatible applications and dynamically apply your chosen effect by running your finger along the Slide FX touch strips.

The DDJ-XP2 ushers in powerful new pad modes in rekordbox dj and Serato DJ Pro. Make full use of Transport mode, which assigns transport controls such as play, pause, cue, and pitch up/down to the Performance Pads on the DDJ-XP2. And, for the first time ever, use 16 pads to control a single mode in Serato DJ Pro. Until now, Serato DJ Pro has only supported up to eight pads in any mode.

If you’ve used the DJM-S9 before you’ll be pleased to know the DDJ-XP2 inherits the looping section from the flagship scratch mixer. It’s a small upgrade, but an important one that will help you feel more comfortable and confident during performances. Plus, the new Silent Cue feature in Serato DJ Pro works the same way as the existing feature for rekordbox dvs (license key included) – enabling you to silently cue up tracks with the faders open on the mixer and trigger them instantly from Hot Cue points.

The Official End of Itunes

As first reported in June, Apple has decided to end a nearly two decade era with iTunes. This update comes with the new software, MacOS Catalina.

Instead of the iTunes application, Apple has decided to curate three separate apps - Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV. Users' personal libraries will be automatically sorted into the new applications. This innovation is new and exciting, unless you're a DJ. Apple Music fails to incorporate XML file support, an organizational component, which originally made it simple for DJs to transfer data from iTunes to applications such as Rekordbox and Traktor.

Without this file support, tracks won't automatically stay organized in set playlists when imported into these applications. Because of this issue, Apple is warning artists to wait to update and to continue to use their preferred software until developers find solutions. Traktor and Serato are already releasing beta versions of their software, while Rekordbox is still holding out.

Fortunately, Microsoft Windows users with the iTunes application will not be affected by this update.
