It’s been three and half years since Rihanna released Unapologetic, the longest gap between albums in her career. Fortunately, fans of the pop goddess won’t have to much longer for her eighth LP, Anti. During tonight’s American Music Awards, a series of ads revealed the release date for the album. It’ll arrive exclusively on TIDAL on Black Friday, November 27th, before being available everywhere on December 4th.
The 46-year-old started with a ballad version of her 1999 hit song, “Waiting for Tonight” but it wasn’t long before she decided to kick it up a notch.
“Tonight’s not about me,” she told the crowd. “Tonight is about the music and this year’s music made me want to dance.” J. Lo went on to perform the biggest songs of 2015 in a glittering skin tight bodysuit with tribal decorations.
She strutted off her dance moves for a cover of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” showed off her booty for Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” got her Beyonce on with “7/11″ and “Feeling Myself” and grooved to The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” The “If You Had My Love” singer also got it in for Little Big Towns’ “Girl Crush,” Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” and Chris Brown’s “Love More.” Not to mention the viral sensations — Fetty Wap’s ‘Trap Queen and Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”
J. Lo ended it with an epic finisher with Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” filled with choreographed dance moves, a fur jacket and a money flying around the stage.
Welcome to All Access, a new feature in which a Consequence of Sound photographer doesn’t just see a show, but gets an inside look at what goes on before the band takes the stage.
The internet is abuzz with stories that Jason Derulo is reportedly dating 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy.
It all started when the crooner shared a flashback Friday photo of himself and the 28-year-old model enjoying a night out in London. Mysteriously, however, the picture has since been removed from Derulo’s ‘Gram.
While the photo looks innocent enough, E! News is reporting that Derulo and Joy are indeed a couple. “They really like each other,” an insider told the entertainment website. “It’s still new but they are exclusive and really like being around each other. Its a very carefree easy going relationship.”
Twenty years ago today, The Beatles released new music. A recent studio reunion bore out two new singles: “Free as a Bird”, released November 21, 1995, as the first track on Anthology 1, and “Real Love”, released on March 4th, 1996. It was good marketing — a ploy to draw attention to Anthology, the three-part TV documentary and six-CD rarities compilation produced by the band’s surviving members. It was also a treat for the millions of Beatles fans who would unquestioningly eat up anything under the band’s name. And it was, of course, lucrative for everyone involved.
From manufacturer to model, the fit of a sneaker varies greatly so when you find a pair that works, it’s best to embrace it with open arms. Furthermore, it’s hard not to play favorites when it comes to sneakers because not everyone has the money to just splurge all willy-nilly. With that in mind, Nike has re-upped the Air Flight 89 in a colorway that makes it easy to earn Sneaker of the Week status.
For this pair, the model is dressed in crisp white leather with an obsidian blue midsole flecked in white to give it that granite feel. The obsidian blue carries itself over to the lining as well while a white outsole ensures that these are as close to godliness as possible due to their cleanliness. If the pair is giving you AJ4 Military Blue vibes it could be as intentional as the implication of the Nike Air Flight 89 BRED that we just saw hit retailers.
This model is having a very good year and it recently just saw a slew of monotone releases over at NikeLab but you know how hard to get those drops can be. Fortunately, you’ll be able to catch this pair at most Nike retailers as well as their website.
Slackerdom and partying are cornerstones of some of the more popular sects of punk. It’s the celebration of opposing conservative ideals of older generations, spitting in the face of conventional lifestyles while cracking open a morning beer. It’s a tradition being happily carried on by Perth, Australia’s Braves with their scrappy, unhinged guitar licks.
