Drake's recently released album "Nothing Was The Same" is already a global success. The rapper's album has gone straight to No.1 in the World's best-selling albums chart after topping the US charts on thursday!

Drake's "Nothing Was The Same" produced the second largest sales week of the year so far. The album, which is the Canadian rapper's third studio album, has sold 658,000 copies in its first week in America according to Nielsen SoundScan and 794,000 copies worldwide thanks to the success of his global hit "Hold On Were Going Home." Only Justin Timberlake's album "The 20/20 Experience" released in March, outsold Drake's, shifting 968,000 copies in America alone in its first week. "Nothing Was the Same" marks Drake's third No.1 Album as well as his highest premiere to date. It has the best opening week of a rap album since Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV", which was released in Sept. 2011.


This week's Top 10 is the most star-studded this year but Drake outsold by far the other great artists including Cher, Sting, Kings of Leon and Elton John. Kings of Leon's "Mechanical Bull" entered at No.2 with 265,000 copies sold this week giving them their 3rd Top 5 position following 2008's "Only By The NIght" and 2010's "Come Around Sundown."

 

Superfly, a Japanese rock Act consisting of vocalist Shiho Ochi with guitarist Kōichi Tabo debuts at No.3 with "Best," a greatest hits Album shifting 157.000 copies in its first week.

 

 At No.4 is the self titled Album of American metal band Dream Theater with sales of 98.000 sales.

 

Arctic Monkey's "AM" is at No.5 with sales of 81.000, while Avicii's "True" slips from No.2 to 6 with sales of 75,000. Last week's No.1, Jack Johnson's "From Here To Now To You" slips to No.7 with sales of 73.000.


Three Sexagenarians fill out the 8th, 9th and 10th places on this week's world's best-selling albums chart. Elton's 31st Studio Album "The Diving board" is the Singer's 18th Top 10 Album and opens at No.8 with 72,000 copies sold.  Sting's most anticipated Album "The Last Ship" enters the charts at No.9 with global sales of 70.000 and Cher closes the Top 10 with her 26th Studio Album "Closer To The Truth" after selling 68,000 copies this week. It is the biggest selling debut of her career after "Believe" in 1998 and "Living Proof" in 2001.

Britney Spears finally released  the world premiere of her new video ‘Work B**ch’ live on CW and Vevo!

Britney had been teasing her video for ‘Work B****h’ for months, and she had us all on the edge of our seats for the Oct. 1 world premiere — and it was all worth it!
Britney Spears posted a quick Instagram video previewing the video, followed by sexy stills from the “Work B***h” video on Sept. 26. Then, the video premiered on The CW and we could not be happier.

The song is set to be a huge hit in the dance clubs, and we knew the video was going to be one of our favorites. Britney looks back to her old self in the video, dancing on the desert, then in front of a car, and up against a mirror in a dance studio.

Justin's 20/20 Experience 2 Of 2 is out!

Posted on October 01, 2013

Justin Timberlake already delivered an incredible Album with part 1 of The 20/20 Experience, which, since being released in March, has become the bestselling album of 2013. 

The sequel, recorded during the same sessions, stands as a stellar Album in its own right. JT's album sequel, officially out, 'creates a visceral listening experience,' one music critic writes. We had to wait seven years for new music from Justin Timberlake. But in less than seven months, Timberlake has doubled his solo album output, giving fans over 140 minutes of new material.

The 74-minute collection, already out in stores, is the companion piece to March's surprise 20/20 Experience, which already sold over 2 million copies!

Working again with Timbaland, as well as producer Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, 2 of 2 is a further exploration into Timberlake's long-listen suite of sensual soul throwback disco and languid ballads, led by the dance-ready "Take Back The Night" and hard-hitting "TKO" singles. And, in keeping with his career-long tendency to feature carefully curated hip-hop cameos, it has verses from Jay Z and Drake.

Timberlake trades in the elegance of the first album for something more sanguine, more hedonistic. He sings of animalistic desire and lurid fantasies, exploring metaphors of boxing, blood and murder over tracks packed with spiky horns, jagged guitar riffs and unspooling synthesizers. The album's bottom-heavy production — as is also the case with his 15-piece touring band — creates a visceral listening experience.

The first half of Timberlake's Experience felt contented in its relationships, often celebratory; Part 2 is no less committed, but it addresses the darker, more warped impulses. Musically, the endeavor is as ambitious as anything attempted by the soul greats Timberlake clearly admires: Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield. 


Miley's "Bangerz" is Streaming on ITunes!

While Miley Cyrus‘ album Bangerz isn’t available in stores until Oct. 4, snippets of songs from "Bangerz" album were dropping all weekend, and now the whole album is streaming on iTunes — four days early!

Although the public has expressed extremely different reactions to Cyrus' music and performances, she is a huge commercial success and her two singles are at the top of the global charts. Her new Album will be competing with the most anticipated Albums of the year including Britney Spears', Lady Gaga's, Katy Perry's and Justin Timberlake's to name just a few, but everyone is eager to listen to "Bangerz", because Miley is on the tip of everyone's tongues and everyone wants to see what she'll do next! 

"Bangerz" is Miley's Cyrus' fourth studio album and her first on RCA Records. 

"Every time I do something, I want to remember, 'This is what separates me from everyone else,'" Cyrus says in the upcoming MTV documentary "Miley Cyrus: The Movement." 

Her new Album certainly proves this!

Not only does it display a different side of her that we’ve never heard, it also takes a deeper look into the emotions Miley’s feeling. She previously revealed that “Drive,” no. 9 on the album was written during an emotional, “hard time.”

“I wrote it while I was working on Valentine’s Day,” she told FASHION magazine. “Emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It’s also about moving on.“

Here’s the full list of songs, including her amazing collaborations:

1. “Adore You”
2. “We Can’t Stop”
3. “SMS (Bangerz),” featuring Britney Spears
4. “4×4,” featuring Nelly
5. “My Darlin’,” featuring Future
6. “Wrecking Ball”
7. “Love Money Party,” featuring Big Sean
8. “#GETITRIGHT
9. “Drive”
10. “FU,” featuring French Montana
11. “Do My Thang”
12. “Maybe You’re Right”
13. “Someone Else”
14. “Rooting for my Baby”
15. “On My Own”
16. “Hands in the Air,” featuring Ludacris


Lorde Has N. 1 Digital Song!

Posted on September 29, 2013

Lorde has the World's 5th best-selling Single this week! Her global hit "Royals" is also No.3 in the American Hot 100 Singles Chart for a third week and N°1 on the Digital Songs Chart (307,000, up 17%). She is the first solo female to send a debut entry to No.1 on the sales tally since Carly Rae Jepsen ruled for eight weeks last year with "Call Me Maybe." The track crowns alternative Songs for a seventh week, extending its mark as the longest leading N°1 by a lead female in the chart's 25-year history. "Royals" tops Hot Rock Songs for a fourth week and blasts into the Pop Songs top 10 (13-5).

 

But Lorde, at just 16, is a singer and songwriter with the maturity of someone twice her age. Born Ella Yelich-O'Connor on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand, Lorde has been compared to Alanis Morissette but cites artists such as James Blake, Etta James, Fleetwood Mac, and Otis Redding as her influences. Lorde was discovered by her current manager and Universal Music New Zealand A&R rep Scott Maclachlan at age 12 and was signed to the label at just 13. In 2012 Lorde released her debut EP, "The Love Club EP". The five-track EP reached No. 23 on the Billboard Top 200, spurred by the hit "Royals". The singer admitted it was pretty easy to write the song. “Lyrically, I wrote it super fast. I was just at home on a Saturday or something and wrote it in like half an hour, an hour,” Lorde said. “And it didn’t even end up getting rearranged that much. The bridge was the only part I wrote afterward, and then it took us kind of a few days in the studio figuring it out. Yeah, it was swift, I guess.”

 

In regards to her much anticipated debut Album "Pure Heroine" out Sept. 30, but currently streaming online, Lorde says she loves the song “Ribs,” which is about “getting old and rites of passage and being a teen and all that kind of stuff.” Produced by Joel Little, "Pure Heroine" features 10 tracks co-written by Lorde, including "Royals" and "Tennis Court". Lorde is currently in the midst of an international tour with dates scheduled through February 2014.
