Dnce Issue New Song Featuring Kent Jones

In Dnce’s new song, their mind is blown – and after listening to it, so is ours. The new single released from the dance pop band is yet another dose of funky brilliance from their upcoming debut record, but something about “Blown” makes it just a bit different from the other offerings that we’ve heard so far.

With retro vibes that sound straight out of the surf pop history books, Dnce goes all out on the “Blown” track, and it’s giving everybody a hefty dose of summer right at the end of October. It’s got much more lasting value than the lead single, “Body Moves,” too, because rather than writing yet another basic electro dance driven song, they switch things up by adding something different and more unique to their repertoire.

To make matters more interesting here, Dnce get hip-hop artist Kent Jones to provide some additional flair to the song.

The Walking Dead: Ranking the Show's 15 Best Couples of All Time
As the old Rob Base/DJ E-z Rock song so eloquently put it, it takes two to make a thing go right (never mind to make it outta sight!). And nowhere is that truer than in the uncertain, post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead.

PhotosWalking Dead‘s 22 Most Painful Deaths

Two by two, time and again, members of the AMC series’ intrepid troupe of survivors have paired up, either simply as friends, as friends with benefits or as something deeper still. And, inevitably, along the way, we’ve become as attached to a few of the duos as they’ve been to each other.

Wait, Vanilla Ice Performed With The Ninja Turtles Today And Didn't Do The Ninja Rap?!

Vanilla Ice performed on the Today show this morning, which sounds strange (seeing as how this is 2016), but made sense when you realize the one-time white-hot “rapper” was helping to promote an “I Love The ‘90s” tour he’s conducting with Salt N Pepa, Coolio, Tone Loc, Rob Base, Young Mc and more. So far, so good. Ice broke into his best-known song, “Ice Ice Baby.” I’m still feeling it. Then, something really strange happened. Four generic, half-hearted Heroes on a Half Shell took the stage with Vanilla Ice… and they Didn’T sing “Ninja Rap” from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II. I mean, what? What?! See for yourself. Vanilla Ice is working the crowd who had gathered outside of the Today show as part of the weekly concert series. And he’s getting ...

American Idol Recap: Meet the Top 24!
It’s good to know that 15 seasons in, American Idol hasn’t lost its ability to send me into a teeth-gnashing, plate-smashing, imaginary mascara-running rage.

Ok, no fine china was harmed in the writing of my Top 24 Announcement Episode recap — decade-old Crate and Barrel still beats a Dixie paper plate — but still, that’s not to say the “Final Judgment”/”Green Mile” announcement didn’t make me fantasize about the satisfying shatter of ceramic against the living-room wall.

‘The Voice’ Coaches Sing Karaoke with Jimmy Fallon (Video)
Jimmy Fallon turned the tables on “The Voice” coaches on Monday night and had them sing karaoke in front of his “Tonight Show” audience. Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine sang popular tunes while playing “Spin the Microphone,” which Shelton noted was “actually the stupidest game” he’s ever played. But it resulted in the country star performing “Ymca,” and Levine performing Britney Spears‘ “Oops, I Did It Again,” so it wasn’t stupid for fans enjoying the spectacle.

Watch Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Cover 'Hotline Bling' on 'Fallon'
Jimmy Fallon and The Voice judges, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, brought all the endearing awkwardness of spin the bottle to a new musical version, "Spin the Microphone," on The Tonight Show Monday.

Instead of teens sucking each other's faces, the host and coaches took turns spinning a microphone and challenging each other to sing a song. Still, there was plenty of scheming, squealing, cringing, backstabbing and, ultimately, one conversation about erections. And despite the credentials of all four judges, getting them to perform under pressure

Watch Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon Beatbox 'It Takes Two'
Will Smith, the Hollywood superstar, has been so busy the past decade making blockbusters that Will Smith, the multi-platinum rapper formerly known as the Fresh Prince, hasn't released new music since 2005's Lost and Found. Aside from the occasional Carlton Dance, Smith has shown almost no desire to rejoin a music world now occupied by his children, but on The Tonight Show, Smith reconnected with the Fresh Prince of yesteryear to beatbox and then perform Rob Base and DJ E-z Rock's "It Takes Two" with Jimmy Fallon.

He's Still Got It! Will Smith Raps 'It Takes Two' with Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon took his love for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air a step further on Thursday's Tonight Show when he invited the show's star Will Smith to rap and beatbox with him. Needless to say, it was "out of sight."

Smith and Fallon started out creating their own beats using an iPad app, only to later perform the 1988 rap "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ E-z Rock.

Smith was so into the song that he and Fallon stood up and got the audience involved. "I wanna rock right now! Sing!" the Focus star screamed out to the crowd.

It was clear the rapper-turned-actor, a.k.a. "Big Willy", has been missing the music game as he hasn't recorded anything new since 2005. 

If they weren't already, after this performance Fallon and Smith are definitely "known on the microphone."

Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon didn’t need a band at all to perform the hip-hop classic “It Takes Two” on “The Tonight Show” Thursday night (though that didn’t stop The Roots from chiming in for the chorus). The pair used the iPad app Loopy to create backing tracks that would layer and repeat behind them. Fallon and Smith took turns performing various beatbox sounds to create drums, bass and even a high hat. Finally, they did the classic backing whoops that recur throughout the 1995 hit by Rob Base & DJ Ez Rock. See video: Will Smith’s Feelings for
