Great Albums The Did Not Win Album Of The Year

10/24/2015 11:00am EDT
Best Albums Since 2000 That Didn’t Win Album Of The Year
Who doesn’t want their achievements honored with an award? Winning an award whether you’re an actor, author, musician, or otherwise is considered an honor – high praise and recognition for the respective art. For a musician, nothing is more prestigious than winning a Grammy, with the most coveted Grammy being for album of the year. Just to be nominated is an honor, but to win the award is much sweeter.

Unfortunately, only a select few have won the Grammy for album of the year – it’s more of a rarity than a surefire thing. Arguably, the 00s and 10s have delivered some oddball choices when i...

The Weeknd Keeps Top Spot For Third Week

9/22/2015 11:50am EDT
The Weeknd Makes It Three Weeks At No. 1 On Billboard
For a third consecutive week, The Weeknd keeps the top spot on the Billboard 200 piping hot. Well, perhaps the 99,000 units that Beauty Behind The Music moved this week isn’t ‘the second coming’ but The Weeknd definitely has a good thing going for him. Three weeks in, Beauty Behind The Madness has moved around 655,000 units. Pure sales are less robust eliminating streaming and tracking from the formula, but still Beauty Behind The Madness is putting up some sales numbers as well – impressive!

Not only is The Weeknd getting it done on the Billboard 200, but also he is equally hot on the...

Disturbed Tops Billboard 200

9/1/2015 11:10am EDT
Disturbed Return To a Familiar Place – No. 1 On The Billboard 20
Disturbed shocked the world this week – NOT! The popular rock band debuted at #1 for a fifth straight time with Immortalized, their first new album in five years. The numbers weren’t sexy per se, but the 98,000 units were enough to seal the deal atop the Billboard 200. Still, isn’t it a shame that no album was able to move 100,000 units for a second straight week? It’s not 42,000 units level of tepidness that Descendants endured, but still.

Disturbed weren’t the only debuts to land within the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Country singer Kip Moore quietly bows fourth with Wild Ones to th...

Does The Weeknd's 'Beauty Behind The Madness' Live Up To The Hype?

8/31/2015 9:12am EDT
The Weeknd Steps Up His Game On 'Beauty Behind the Madness'
Talk about a dude with hella hype behind him in 2015! Many musicians would kill to be in the position that Canadian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye – better known as The Weeknd – finds himself in. With three top-five hits, including one chart topper on the Billboard Hit 100, it seemed pretty clear that there was no way that his highly anticipated album Beauty Behind The Madness could miss. Now the question is does the album live up to the gargantuan hype and meet expectations? Sometimes it does, while at others times it’s a smidgen less enthralling than the hype.

With a few notable exceptions, i...

Luke Bryan Stays At No. 1

8/25/2015 9:14am EDT
Luke Bryan Makes It Two Weeks Atop Billboard 200
It’s hard to topple a king, and that’s exactly what country singer Luke Bryan is this week. After dropping Kill The Lights with robust numbers last week, Bryan manages to keep the top spot warm for a second consecutive week. No, he couldn’t score another 345,000 units, but he was good enough for another 99,000. Sophomore week blues happen to everybody, even when you’re a “Country Man” like Bryan.

So with Luke at the top once more, were there any newbies that debuted in the top 10? Yes. Melanie Martinez entered at #6 with her unique debut effort Cry Baby moving 40,000 units. The numbe...

What Makes These 21 Songs So Manly?

8/16/2015 3:00pm EDT
21 Of The Manliest Songs – Sort Of!
What makes a song manly? Is it courage, resolve, or being hard-nosed? Maybe it’s chugging beer, playing/watching football, and “wearing the pants” in the household. Well in the case of this manly list – 21 of the Manliest Songs – Sort Of! – the only requirement to be manly is to have some form of the word “man” in the song title. Ah, the "all-inclusiveness" is so impressive. No, not every “man” song graced this – that mean’s you Mulan soundtrack standout “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” – but there’s plenty of manly selections to pique your machismo!

Jill Scott’s 'Woman' Is A Triumph For R&B

8/4/2015 8:47am EDT
Jill Scott Makes It Two Consecutive No. 1 Albums On Billboard
R&B has triumphed atop the Billboard 200 for the second time this year! Is it a total change of pace for commercially ailing genre? Jill Scott follows her first #1 album, 2011’s Light Of The Sun with a second one with Woman. Woman didn’t match the higher-flying sales of Light Of The Sun, but Scott’s first album in four years certainly has performed better than most of her contemporaries’ R&B efforts. 62,000 units is by no means “the second coming,” but it’s respectable considering the number of albums that have tanked this year (yeah you Jamie Foxx and Ciara).

Jill Scott wasn’t the sol...

Ed Sheeran made an embarrassing confession during an interview with an Australian radio station this week. The singer admitted he once "misjudged a fart" halfway through a gig.

He recalled, "I actually once misjudged a fart on stage, which ended up being a shart.

Nicki Minaj
Not that it was ever going to be a contest, but Taylor Swift reclaimed her perch on the Billboard 200 without any trouble. 1989 sold 331,000 copies, an uptick in sales, and also experienced an uptick in the Billboard 200’s new ‘units’ system, to the tune of 375,000 units. But as we all know, doesn’t a queen always win? Swift has certainly been exactly what the music industry needed in a weak years of sales.

Nicki Minaj, who boasts the week’s top new album, settled for second place. The Pinkprint sold more respectably than expected, selling 194,000 copies, and impacting even more consi...

Biggest Breakthrough Musicians Of 2014
Some succeed and some don’t. It’s a very simplistic statement, but a true one that’s applicable to any number of things. In the case of musicians in 2014, whether it’s fair or not, some crashed and burned, while others excelled. Excelling doesn’t mean that the respective musician sold a lot of albums (few did), but it does mean these artists established their brand, making a name for themselves. Here are the biggest breakthrough musicians of 2014.

10 Incredibly Heartfelt Songs of 2014
In an age dominated by big records, there’s nothing like a truly captivating, heartfelt song. That’s not to say that a record can’t be a song or visa versa, but these days, the two aren’t necessarily interchangeable. For all of the big records dropped in 2014, there are also some incredibly notable heartfelt songs that definitely deserve recognition (see the bloated, incomplete list of honorable mentions). But to keep the list from being forever long, here are 10 of the most heartfelt songs of 2014.

Ed Sheeran’s Excellent Chart Numbers: This Week in Music
Ed Sheeran should be beaming "ear to ear." Why? According to, Sheeran moved 210,000 copies of his sophomore album, X (pronounced 'multiply'). That’s a healthy sum, particularly given the new normal that is album sales. With 210,000 copies sold, the takeaway for the British singer/songwriter is that he truly has a shot – at gold and maybe platinum.

Sheeran wasn’t the only artist experiencing a 'come up.' Rapper G-Eazy took his cocky and confident These Things Happen to #3. The 46,000 copies isn’t exactly 'the second coming,' but it's not too shabby either. Compared to ot...

British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran's profile has risen tremendously over the past couple of years. While 2011 debut album + didn't blow the charts away when it bowed, the album received a lift from his Grammy-nominated hit, "The A Team", a memorable and meaningful song by all means. Sophomore album X ("multiply") elevates Sheeran's stardom, delivering a captivating pop album.
