  • And Rita Ora has teamed up with Chris Brown for sexy new single “Body on Me”, off her upcoming album, expected this November:


  • Who knew a Macklemore and Ryan Lewis song could bring a tear to your eye? Macklemore has dedicated their new song “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song)”, which also features Ed Sheeran, to his newborn daughter, describing his parenting plans and promises and dispensing advice. It’s all quite emotional:
