  • Iggy Azalea: The New Classic review hit-and-miss debut from Australian rapper

    (Virgin EMI)

    Australian rapper Iggy Azalea's debut has appeared in recently typical form for the genre: with a long delay and slew of singles. The New Classic barely resembles the west coast hip-hop Azalea idolised and imitated when developing her voice, and sits somewhere between EDM, dance-pop and trap music. Azalea can still spit out rapid-fire verses, but this album feels less forward-thinking than her 2011 Ignorant Art mixtape. Trio the Invisible Men behind Jessie J's Do It Like a Dude and DJ Fresh's Hot Right Now produced most of the album's songs, helping Black Widow and Fuck Love sound reminiscent of collaborations between Diplo, RL Grime and Steve Aoki. On Fancy, Charli XCX is like the Gwen Stefani to Azalea's Eve while New Bitch, co-produced by Timbaland, couples lyrical venom with a numbingly sweet hook think Nicki Minaj on Starships, and you're just about there.

  • Michael Jackson – “Xscape”

    When Michael Jackson died in 2009, he left behind a few unreleased recordings, and now Timbaland is overseeing their release, turning “contemporized” versions of those tracks into a new album called XSCAPE. Rodney Jerkins produced the LP’s title track, and it comes from Jackson’s kinda-underrated early-’00s Invincible period. I’m guessing Jerkins didn’t do a whole [...]

  • there's a "new" Michael Jackson album, 'Xscape,' out in May

    We are approaching the fifth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death (6/25/2009) but his music lives on. Some of it, which he never finished, is about to get reanimated -- a la Tupac -- via "new" album Xscape. That's the cover art above. Megaproducer L.A. Reid oversaw the project and the eight tracks were "contemporized" by lead producer Timbaland, with additional work via Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon and John McClain. Says Reid:

    Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world. Xscape is out May 13.
