Yesterday, an email pops into my BlackBerry from the one and only Mick Boogie, talking about the latest mix he completed with Terry Urban, Viva La Hova. In it, they blend Jay-Z and Coldplay in a way that has to be heard to fully appreciate.

As Mick Boogie explains it:

“In addition to self-producing a few tracks ourselves, we reached out to some of our favorite producers in the game… from Jay-Z’s collaborator 9th Wonder, The Kickdrums (50 Cent, TI) and Cookin’ Soul (The Game, Dipset) to up and comers like 6th Sense, nVMe and Garbs Infinite.

After assigning all the producers samples and snippets that we felt fit their musical talents, we began the process of assembling as many Jay-Z vocal tracks as we could find.  As the submissions came back, one by one, we decided which Jay-Z verse would fit this particular interpretation of Coldplay’s sounds.

As we began piecing together the correct verses to match the correct beats, it became clear how truly amazing this project really is.  This is what real music is supposed to sound like.  The lyrical elegance of Shawn Carter, the vocal magic of Chris Martin, the finely tuned instruments of Coldplay, the creative visions by our team of producers, and lastly, our analysis of which Jay verse best fit each track.”

Grab Viva La Hova and tell us what you think in the comments.

axl roseAxl Rose is back! Well, actually, disregard the image because he really doesn’t look like this anymore. Think a transformation along the lines of Danny Bonaduce from his days in the Partridge Family to the mess he was on Breaking Bonaduce. His current looks, though, are pointless because he still sounds incredible.

It’s been 17 years since the last Guns N’ Roses album. In that time, they’ve been very disciplined about getting the next album out. We know it’s hard to believe, but they’ve spent 10 years in the studio and over $15 million dollars on getting Chinese Democracy completed. You’ll be able to grab the new Guns N’ Roses album on November 23rd,
Judging from the first single off the album, also named Chinese Democracy, this album is well worth the wait. Listen to the Chinese Democracy single, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Now…when is Detox coming out?

In some MTV performances, it’s the lead singer’s intention to end up on the ground. (Remember Madonna’s classic Like a Virgin number?) Unfortunately, that was not the case for Katy Perry last night.

At yesterday’s MTV Latin America bash, the “I Kissed a Girl” singer gave the foreign audience something to remember the American by. Perry - who coincidentally used a cake as a prop like - thought it would be entertaining to dive into the large dessert at the end of her song. Unfortunately for her, the entertainment she provided was clearly unscripted.

The embarrassment begins around the :20 mark.
