  • Queens For a Day!

    June 6, 2013 5:25 PM ET | Yahoo New This Week
     |  Dave DiMartino

    It’s been a busier week than I’d like, meaning: I missed the opportunity earlier today to take a bus trip to Santa Barbara to watch former blond reggae rocker Sting perform all the songs that will comprise his soon-to-come, self-composed Broadway musical—dudes, this is not fiction! I awoke to a suggestion that Miley Cyrus’s new “risqué” single artwork was one of the biggest music stories of the day! And, perhaps mostly, we decided to start up a li...  | More »

  • J Cole Compares 'Crooked Smile' to Tupac's 'Keep Ya Head Up'

    Mean-spirited online commenters, negative people and unsolicited advice givers, J. Cole has a song for you. Actually, the North Carolina MC’s new record “Crooked Smile” is actually a word of support to the recipients of your unconstructive criticisms. On the funky bass groove driven track highlighted with piano keys and violin effects, Jermaine Cole dismisses those who have made insulting comments about his crooked teeth. J. Cole cuts to the chase on the song’s open...  | More »

    Tired of hearing LeAnn Rimes discuss her affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian? You definitely aren't alone. However, the singer delivered yet another missive on the topic Tuesday--this time an enjoyable one--when she debuted the song "Spitfire" on the "Tonight Show." Although Rimes demurs that "Spitfire" is not about Cibrian's ex, reality star Brandi Glanville, whom she's had a contentious (to say the least) relationship with over the past few years, the tune's lyrics su...  | More »

  • Video: Lee DeWyze's Comeback Performance

    June 3, 2013 6:25 PM ET | Yahoo Reality Rocks

    Lee DeWyze may face an image problem after winning one of "American Idol's" least popular seasons (Season 9) and parting ways with RCA Records after the disappointing sales of his post-"Idol" album, Live It Up. But with a new label deal with Vanguard Records; a forthcoming album, Frames; and a fantastic new folk-rock single, "Silver Lining," Lee is re-energized and about to surprise a lot of doubters. Lee recently came to Yahoo! Music to play three of his new songs and talk about his ro...  | More »

  • Midas Whale Rise Again With “Howling at the Moon” Video

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: The day that folk-rockers Midas Whale were knocked out of this season's "Voice" Knockout Rounds was The Day The Music Died. But thankfully, that actually wasn't the death of Midas Whale. Jon Peter Lewis (an "American Idol" top 10 finalist from Season 3) and his musical partner Ryan Hayes have since launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their post-"Voice" debut album, and now they've released their lovely first official mus...  | More »
