Review: Chris Brown's new album 'X' rarely makes its marks

16 September 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Brown is an artist whose public persona is nearly impossible to separate from his art. He's an obviously gifted singer, and frequently an even better dancer. His pout and his swagger, when he's performing, is all part of the act. And the act can often be the art. He's also been repeatedly arrested, charged and sentenced for assault; he publicly brawls with other artists; he's proven a hostile and defensive in television appearances and on social media. That recent Billboard interview was insufferable. He can be vile about women, boastful about commercial success and his own materialism. His success is dependent on inspired live performances, a hit single and the support of his label and guest artists on his records. This need has worked its way into his art, onto his new album "X," though not always in the most explicit, lyrical terms. "X" was an album that took a year-and-a-half to make, »

TV Watch: House Style in the Golden Age of Comedy Central

9 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The very first words spoken in "Broad City" arrive by way of video chat, as raffish slacker Ilana (Ilana Glazer) floats the idea of attending a Lil Wayne concert by her girl Friday, Abbi (Abbi Jacobson). "Ab, Ab, Ab, no joke," she says, summarizing Comedy Central's current slate in the process. "Today is the day we become Abbi and Ilana, the boss bitches we are in our minds!" Though "Broad City," "Key & Peele," "Inside Amy Schumer," "Nathan for You," and "Review" tackle many subjects, Comedy Central's constellation of boss bitches and irascible absurdists recalls the argument of Ethan Mordden's book "The Hollywood Studios: House Style in the Golden Age of the Movies." Applying the aesthetics and politics that made "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" late-night powerhouses to a stable of (quasi-) narrative series, the network has developed a house »

Music News - Usher Says Drake Will Feature on New Album

5 September 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Music News - Usher has confirmed that Drake will feature on his new album. The 'Love In This Club' hitmaker is currently working on his eighth studio LP 'Ur', which is expected to be released later this year, and he's revealed the Young Money star has been helping him with the project. He told MTV News: ''He's extremely talented, man. ''He's nice. Money really knows what he's doing. He really understands how to analyse a beat and then recognise a cadence. Because hip-hop is that way; it's not just words and a rhythm. ''You gotta understand the cadence of what the song is saying, so that when you're on it, you know how to get it.'' Drake will not be the only artist from Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment record label to feature on the album, however, as Usher and Nicki Minaj's collaboration, 'She Came To Give It To You', »

12 greatest sports songs ever: Are you ready for some football?

4 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tonight marks the opening night of the 2014 NFL Season, so in celebration, here are the 10 best songs about sports. I tried to make it all football, but there are surprisingly few football-themed hits. And since it’s still baseball season, I decided to throw in a few baseball ones as well. Basketball? Other than “I Believe I Can Fly,” the round ball got left out in the cold since the only other basketball song I could think of was Cheech & Chong’s “Basketball Jones,” which, quite frankly, is in a league of its own. Given that the World Cup just ended, I also threw in a little soccer love. Though certainly not written about football, Jay Z and Rihanna's "Run This Town" is the new theme song for Thursday Night Football, according to NFL and CBS. The pair's hit, from Jay Z's "The Blueprint 3," will get reworked each week with narration by Don Cheadle. »

Album sales at an all-time low: 5 things that only maybe could save a dismal 2014

4 September 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we previously reported, album sales are at a record all-time low in the U.S. Last week, album sales totaled 3.97 million for the week, marking the first time the tally has dropped below 4 million, unprecedented in the SoundScan era (which kicked off with tracking sales data in 1991). Billboard -- who has a partnership with SoundScan -- is the first to report album and sales news, the good, the bad and the ugly. Today it was reported that sales are slightly up from that grim news last week, 5% only (to 4.2 million), due to Ariana Grande's fresh "My Everything." But still, that makes it trending low, which Ed Christman said is only to be expected. "The weekly average number of album sales fell from 4.75 million units in the first quarter to 4.55 million units in the second quarter. In the first 8 weeks of the third quarter, the average has fallen further to 4.2 million. »

Drake won a hip-hop award for an R&B song at the MTV VMAs: Here's his response

26 August 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At his Boston tour stop last night, Drake acknowledged what is plain to everyone else: his song "Hold On, We're Going Home" featuring Majid Jordon is R&B, which makes it kind of hilarious that it took home the Moonman for Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2014 MTV VMAs earlier this week. The Toronto singer and rapper had a laugh thanking his mom, God and Lil Wayne in his belated "acceptance speech" for the honor. He wasn't present at the ceremony in L.A. on Sunday. "I know this is a hip-hop award and a lot of you out there are frustrated, like, 'This is not a hip-hop song.' And you know what? You're right -- I tricked you all," Drake said. "Rappers, better luck next year. Thank you." Here is a list of all the winners at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. »

Mo'ne Davis, First Female Pitcher In Little League World Series, Continues To Make History

17 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Mo’ne Davis, 13, made history Friday night as the first female pitcher to throw a shutout game in the Little League World Series.

Mo'ne Davis Pitches Shutout

Davis has been grabbing headlines since July, when her Philadelphia team, the Taney Dragons, earned their spot in the national championships. Davis is one of two girls playing in this year’s Little League World Series, but it’s her 70-mph fastball that sets her apart from the rest.

On Friday Davis became the first girl to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series, helping the Taney Dragons earn a 4-0 victory over a team from Nashville. Throughout the game, Davis gave up only two hits, striking out eight batters in the process. After the game, Davis responded to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s hope that she make it to the Mlb, telling reporters, “It’s very crazy. I didn’t even expect that. »
