[New Music] Mariah Carey - "Infinity"



Oh.My.Lordt.

Mariah Carey's new song Infinity has landed as a lyric video!!! (So no excuses for not singing along!) Taken from her latest collection of number one singles, titled #1 To Infinity, could this nostalgia-heavy track end up being the Diva's 19th Billboard number one?

Take a listen and decide for yourself!

[Discuss] Worst. Performances. EVER.



Our divas aren't machines.

They may deliver us countless pitch perfect renditions that have us thinking otherwise. But the longer a Diva performs, the more chance a trip on stage or a dud vocal day will be caught on camera. It's the law of averages, or something 

Beyonce Comes For Haters With Tidal Exclusive "Killing My"!!! Also, Is Tidal DOA?



A new song from Beyonce has appeared on the (currently flatlining) streaming service, Tidal!

Killing My is reportedly one of the hundreds of tracks recorded by the Diva that were ultimately deemed unworthy for major release. And listening to it, I can kinda see why this diss track never made it past the finish line.

That's not to say there isn't the bones of  a good track within. After all, I love ratchet Bey as much anyone. It's just, as it is, I can't get over how ugly Bey's tone sounds. I know some of y'all are living for it, but to me it's jarring and at complete odds to the beautifully lyrical quality I expect from the Diva.

Miranda Lambert sings "Mama's Broken Heart" / "Little Red Wagon" Medley @ 2015 CMAs



I literally have one foot out the door, but I thought since I'd posted on Christina Aguilera's CMA performance, it would only be fair to let you watch Miranda Lambert's Mama's Broken Heart / Little Red Wagon medley, too.

Christina Aguilera Duets With Rascal Flatts @ 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards



If you're a fan of Christina Aguilera's heavier, darker timbre, you're going to love the Diva's performance at the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

[CLT] Tinashe - " Dreams Are Real"



Sure I had a status up recently touching on how much I'm enjoying Tinashe's newest mixtape, Amethyst.

Dreamy and ambient, it's been the thing I've been throwing on to unwind after a long day of #firstworldproblems. But since this is the "currently listening" to post, where we're supposed to showcase the one song that's been on repeat for us recently, I'll stick to the album opener, Dreams Are Real.

Take a listen and let me know what you've been currently listening to in the comments.

[New Music] JoJo - "Far From Heaven"



New music from vocal beast, JoJo.

Far From Heaven is a piano propelled ballad that sees the Diva leaving the RnB pond she's been frolicking in for the longest time for more adult contemporary waters. How did I come to that opinion? Well, I can hear Adele singing a song like this for one, which to me is enough of a reason to put it in that genre. (Scientific, I know!)

Mariah Carey's "One Sweet Day" Retains Billboard Hot 100 Longest Running #1 Crown!



Our prayers have been answered Diva fans!! Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's record-breaking 16 week reign at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 remains unbroken!

Things were looking scary for a moment, with Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars being two weeks from matching the Diva's feat with Uptown Funk. But Wiz Khalifa's See You Again has come from nowhere to block the pair, ascending to the number one spot. I can't say I know of any of this dude's material, but right now, I think whatever this track sounds like, I'm going to love it.

If I were Wiz, I'd be watching out for the delivery man. I'm thinking copious amounts of champagne and a thank you note are the least he can expect!

[New Music] Christina Aguilera - The Real Thing


Christina Aguilera's contribution to Nashville, the TV show she has just joined, has hit the webz.

With a rock edge and a driving beat, The Real Thing places the Diva's vocal style in a genre it locks into perfectly. But it isn't just full-on, high octane belting that fill the 3 minute-shy song. There's plenty of peaks and valleys crammed in too, so variety is present not only in the production, but also the vocal.
