Justin Bieber Sets New Billboard Record, Beating Drake & The Beatles

By HP Cheung

Although Justin Bieber's album sales numbers got shattered by Adele's, he's still doing a very impressive job. Not long after breaking Spotify's first-week streaming record (which was set by The Weeknd four months ago), Billboard reports that the Biebs now has 17 songs on their Hot 100 chart. This means that he broke the previous record of 14 simultaneous hits set by The Beatles and Drake. Three of his 17 songs are currently in the top five, a feat only carried out previously by 50 Cent and The Beatles. Congratulations, JB. (Read More)

Kanye West and JAY Z's Tour Demands



Jay Z insists on 71 degree temp. Hotel staff must provide 3 $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles.
Jay has two no-no's for staff: 1) No vacuuming near his room 2) Don't ask for concert tickets if you want to "avoid embarrassment."
Kanye has specific geometric preferences. Vases must be cylindrical. He also requires staff to hunt down a Genelecs 1031a speaker ... which was discontinued a decade ago. He likes his floss minty, his cereal Kashi Go Lean and his towels black.

Kanye has a grocery list ... 13 bottles totaling around $3,200, including 3 bottles of Paradis Hennessy.
Jay Z is more chill in the liquor dept. ... just Ace of Spades champagne. But here's the rub ... the contract says he cannot be charged, since he owns the company.

Kanye has no provides for Nori. But Jay has lots of Blue Ivy demands. For starters, the entire suite must be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets all covered, and statues, lamps, and breakable objects removed. Oh, Blue only drinks organic whole milk.

Eminem Announces Partnership With Genius

By Paul Rosenberg

"Coming up we would always obsess over the lyrics from our favorite MCs. Picking everything apart, trying to get into their heads. I still do that today and Genius helps to make it a worldwide conversation. Pretty amazing to me."

"Genius provides an avenue for fans to dig deeper into their favorite songs, but more importantly, it gives artists a way to communicate their artistic intent directly to those fans. For an artist like Eminem, the intricacies and nuances in his lyrics are very layered and his art is a perfect fit for this type of tool. We're excited about what this partnership brings for both sides." (Read More)

Now, it has relaunched once more -- this time as a streaming and offline playback service. It was previously reported that the service is only available to Canadian users, however, the website shows that it's supported in 32 different countries. Charging users a monthly fee of $9.99, it will be available on iOS, Android and more and will feature curated playlists from different artists. (Read More)
