Fabolous, Jadakiss - Theme Music ft. Swizz Beatz - Video



After dropping the horror-themed video for "F vs. J" in January, Fabolous and Jadakiss are back with new visuals but leave their frightening alter egos behind.
Teaming up with Swizz Beatz, Fab and Jada head to the roller skating rink for the "Theme Music" video. Rapping over a classic Marvin Gaye sample, Fab, Jada and Swizzy get all dressed up for the old school party.
The three artists celebrate with a group of people as guests pop champagne and dance in the rink on their roller skates. Swizz also show off some of his moves, hitting the two-step as Fab and Jada try to stay upright on their skates.

"Theme Music" is featured on the Friday on Elm Street project which was released in November. Featuring appearances from Future, Teyana Taylor, French Montana, Jeezy and more, Fab said the idea for the project came from him and Jada freestyling together in the past.
"You can take that chemistry and see that weve been able to do records," he told XXL. "Its not like putting NSYNC with DMX. We got mutual respect for each other. Were fans of each others music and art."
The Brooklyn rapper also teased a sequel, telling us, "I feel it can be traditional. The same way Thanksgiving meals is traditional, you might need this every once a year. We'll see."

Jermaine Dupri Among 2018 Songwriters Hall Of Fame Inductees



A lot of people would tell you it's close to impossible to write about the history of Atlanta hip-hop without mentioning Jermaine Dupri. It turns out that The Songwriters Hall definitely belong to that group.
On Tuesday (Feb. 6), the organization revealed their 2018 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees, and the rap trail blazer found himself included on the hallowed list. Other inductees include the likes of John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson, Kool & the Gang and songwriters Bill Anderson and Steve Dorff.
The weight of this accomplishment isn't lost on Dupri, who uploaded an Instagram post commemorating the feat yesterday. "I cant fucking believe it!!! This what all the long nights and early mornings is all about #SOSODEF25," the So So Def Recordings founder wrote in the caption for the post, which included a video of him celebrating the accomplishment.

Just last year, Jay-Z became the very first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, so, again, Dupri's induction is no small feat. It's also completely deserved.
If you didn't know, Dupri has more than a few hits as a rapper. Even more significantly, though, he penned many of the lyrics for Usher's acclaimed Confessions album, as well as cuts for the likes of Mariah Carey ("We Belong Together"). Salute to Jermaine.

Watch Justin Timberlake Honor Prince in Halftime Spectacle



Justin Timberlake tore through a bevy of his hits including "Suit & Tie," "Rock Your Body," "SexyBack" and his new song, "Filthy," during his performance at the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show.

Timberlake's set marked his record-setting third time playing the Super Bowl, following appearances at Super Bowls XXXV and XXXVII. The latter performance, in 2004, became infamous when Janet Jackson joined the singer onstage and Timberlake, during a rendition of "Rock Your Body," reached and pulled off a piece of Jackson's bustier, exposing her breast.

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Timberlake spoke about the wardrobe malfunction, saying, "I stumbled through it ... to be quite honest, I had my wires crossed. It's just something that you have to look back on and go, 'OK, you can't change what's happened, but you can move forward and learn from it ... It's just one of those things were you go, like, 'Yeah, what do you want me to say?' We're not going to do that again."

Timberlake released his new album, Man of the Woods, last Friday. The pop star will kick off a North American tour in support of the record March 13th in Toronto.

Kylie Minogue in New 'Dancing' Video



Kylie Minogue plays both honky tonk angel and club queen in the glitzy new video for "Dancing." The track will appear on the Australian pop star's new album, Golden, out April 6th.

Despite years of experience, Minogue said this choreography presented a new challenge for her. "I always thought I could learn routines quickly, but this was different," she said. "However, by the time I had to dance with the Grim Reaper at the end I had mastered it. And if thats not a funny allegory for life I dont know what is!"

Migos Become Kung Fu Masters in Gritty 'Stir Fry' Video



The Georgia rap trio open the clip gambling with producer, Pharrell, in the back room of a restaurant in Hong Kong.
Suddenly, a severed hand is thrown through the window and interrupts the gathering. The visual culminates with the rappers squaring off with a rival crew in a fight sequence filled with vintage action-film sound effects, wild kicks and a particularly gruesome revenge. After that bloody finale, Migos lighten the mood in a goofy credit sequence filled with outtakes.

Migos' Quavo collaborated with Travis Scott on the recently issued Huncho Jack mixtape, and all three members appeared alongside Young Thug on Zaytoven's December single "Five Guys."

Pioneer DJ Turns Your Phone Into A Recorder



Pioneer DJ just launched a new recording app for iOS 8+
Plug your iPhone or iPad straight into the Pioneer DJM 900NXS2, DJM 750MK2 or DJM 450 and hit record.

Recording your DJ mixes is a bit of a minefield. If you have a spare output that isnt hotter than the surface of the sun, then you could hang all manner of devices off the back of your mixer, provided the sound guy doesnt rip your arm off for messing with his setup. But in the digital age with mixers and recording devices being more like computers than audio equipment, youd think that there would be easier ways to record your sets. Well it seems that Pioneer DJ has decided to make good use of the USB ports on their DJMs and have introduced the DJM-REC app for iOS.

It is literally hanging your iOS device off the port of selected DJMs and hitting the red button in the app. But obviously theres a little more to it than that.

Disclosure Confirmed, They Are Working On Third Album



Disclosure's WILD LIFE Festival will be taking a hiatus this year as the duo work on their third album.

They wrote on Facebook that their focus will be on recording the follow-up to 2015's 'Caracal', which means the event they founded with Rudimental would return in 2019.

"With a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number three, were going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019.

"Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times weve ever had as Disclosure, were hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon."

Last year's WILD LIFE featured Jamie Jones, The Black Madonna, Eric Prydz, Stormzy and Maya Jane Coles.

Justin Timberlake's New 'Supplies' Video



Justin Timberlake released a dystopian video for "Supplies" featuring Pharrell Williams on Thursday. The song is the second track the singer has revealed from his forthcoming album, Man of the Woods.

"Supplies" blends a steady beat, a sitar-like melody and onomatopoeic interjections from Williams. The Neptunes (Williams' group with Chad Hugo) produced the single, marking a reunion of sorts for the collaborators: Man of the Woods is the first time they've worked together on a Timberlake album since the singer's 2002 debut solo album, Justified.
