Taylor swift: Red

 

Once again, Taylor Swift has given her fans material for their Facebook statuses. Swift is back with her fourth album, “Red,” which was released Oct. 22.

The album consists of 16 songs that will trap listeners in a funnel of emotions, like a mobile spinning in a teenager’s room, with its poppy beats and angsty lyrics.

Swift, known predominately as a country singer, shows her versatility across different genres. With her single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Swift shows she is more than just a country singer. This song is pure pop.

“I Knew You Were Trouble” is a shocking departure from Swift’s usual songs, not because of the lyrics, but the dub-step-influenced beat that accompanies the chorus.

The song “Red” that the album is named after obviously means a lot to Swift.

Two Eleven Is A Bona Fide Hit

 
It’s not often you listen to an album and walk away impressed with more than just one cut on the CD.  This is the best Brandy album ever!
The singer, who released her new album Two Eleven this week, credited the late Whitney Houston with helping her believe in herself again.
"There were times when I tried to come back and it didn't work. Then I started to feel like, maybe this is not my purpose, maybe this is not what I'm supposed to do, because it's not happening to me," Brandy told CNN.
"People are calling me a has-been, people are calling me washed-up and all these things. That starts to affect you mentally a little bit because you're like, 'Am I? Do I still have it?'
"Clearly there was another plan in place, and I was able to connect with that destiny plan that is within us all and make a different choice, to believe in myself so I can do what I got to do to have a relationship with the people that love my music."

Lil Wayne Breaks Elvis's Record For Hot 100 Hits

Lil Wayne is breaking records at least at billboard. He recently broke Elvis Presley’s record for the most Billboard Hot 100 hits. The rapper breaks the record with 109 Hot 100 Billboard hits including his many collaborations. According to Billboard only the cast of “Glee” have more Hot 100 hits with 204.

Wayne has bested Elvis’s 45 years and two months in just 13 years. Presley held the record with 108 Hot 100 hits.

While making approximately two-thirds of his Hot 100 visits in featured roles, Lil Wayne has still enjoyed laudable Hot 100 accolades.
While Billboard swings with both hand to protect the Presley’s accomplishments, this information forces one to wonder what’s next for the implausible rock star.

But They Forgot About Dre: Dr. Dre Tops Forbes List

Dr. Dre

The new Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings 2012 top 20 list has been revealed, with Beats headphone maker Dr. Dre topping the list. He's joined by several other hip hop moguls and rapper entrepreneurs including Diddy, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne at the top of the list. So how did Dre earn the top spot this year, and will he continue to hold it for 2013?

According to Forbes.com, it's those Beats by Dre headphones which have really boosted Dre's income to that next level. Not only is he a massively successful producer and part-time rapper these days, but also has attached his "Beats" brand to multiple products including laptops and headphones. The idea was originally brought to him by Jimmy Iovine, and has been a rousing success to the tune of $110 million in pretax earnings.
