Death Grips have followed the lead of their friend Beyoncé with the surprise release of a new song. “Hot Head” marks the band first new music since last year’s jenny death, and presumably serves as our first taste of the band’s forthcoming Bottomless Pit. Listen below.

No word on whether Death Grips will join Beyoncé at the Super Bowl tomorrow night. What we do know for sure: Bernie Sanders is excited.

Beyoncé shares new single Formation one day before Super Bowl performance watch
Feb 6, 2016 5:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Beyoncé is set the take the stage alongside Coldplay at tomorrows Super Bowl 50 halftime show, but the pop singer is already bringing the fireworks. In a surprise move earlier today, she dropped Formation, her first new single since 2014s Beyoncé: Platinum Edition. The song is available to stream and download for free via Tidal, and its accompanied by a politically charged music video that you can watch below.

Formation is unlike anything weve heard or seen from Beyoncé before. Its an angry, aggressive protest song that unapologetically celebrates the singers Southern roots even as it shines a light on the racial injustices that spawned the Black Lives Matter movement. My daddy Alabama / My mama Louisiana / You mix that negro with that creole make a Texas Bama, she sings, standing in front of a Louisiana mansion and lifting two middle fingers in an image that both invokes and defies the antebellum South.

The video and song stand in stark contrast to Hymn for the Weekend, the more conventional pop collaboration Beyoncé released with Coldplay last week. There has been no confirmation that she will debut the song live during her Super Bowl performance at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, California, but as Rolling Stone reports, she was seen rehearsing the song during halftime show preparations.

Beyoncé just dropped "Formation," the first new song she's released since the 2014 expanded edition of her great 2013 album Beyoncé. It's got a beat by Mike WiLL Made-It, a Big Freedia sample, and it was co-written by Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd. If you liked her sorta-trap songs "***Flawless" and "7/11," you're gonna love this too. Oh and also, she says "I slay" about 90 times. As if we thought otherwise.

The video also pays a massive tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement. According to The FADER, it was directed by Melina Matsoukas who also did the "Pretty Hurts" video. Watch it below and pick up a free download at beyonce.tidal.com. According to SPIN, she'll give the song its live debut Sunday night (2/7) at Super Bowl 50. The main act is Coldplay. Bruno Mars is promised too and Rihanna and Justin Timberlake are rumored. Lady Gaga will sing the National Anthem.

Beyonce surprise releases Formation
Feb 6, 2016 2:52pm | Fact Magazine

The queen is back.

Ahead of her performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show tomorrow, Beyonce just released a new track, and video, via Jay-Z’s Tidal platform.

‘Formation’ had been hinted at as early as last August when it appeared on a picture of a poster listing Beyonce singles. And then there was the news of a secret video shoot in recent weeks.

The video, which you can watch below, was directed by Beyonce herself and ramps up the creativity by weaving together historical references, the plight of New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina, and various dancing sets. [Via SPIN]

Five years ago, James Blake and Justin Vernon teamed up for “Fall Creek Boys Choir”. Now, the two crooners appear set to reunite, and this time they’re bringing their collaboration to the live stage.

Fans who purchased early-bird tickets to Vernon’s second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival have received a cassette tape containing b-sides, demos, and home recordings from some of the acts on this year’s lineup. One such track is attributed to Fall Creek Boys Choir.

Eaux Claires takes place August 12th – 13th in Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The cassette tapes suggests Vernon will play three separate sets during the festival weekend; in addition to Fall Creek Boys Choir, he’ll lead Bon Iver and perform alongside The Nationals Aaron Dessner.

Other artists expected to appear at the festival: Bruce Hornsby, Jon Hopkins, Shabazz Palaces, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and Arcade Fire members Richard Reed Parry and Sarah Neufeld, the latter of who’ll perform alongside Colin Stetson.

Jay Electronica rants against Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Action Bronson
Feb 6, 2016 2:03pm | Fact Magazine

Rappers in cars getting ranty.

Jay Electronica took to Periscope yesterday while driving around Miami and began to answer fan questions leading to various rants about fellow rappers including Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Action Bronson.

When asked to play some Kendrick over the car stereo, the MC replied “fuck that” before claiming that ‘Cartoons & Cereal’ is the only song of Lamar he likes. He then proceeded to call Lamar his “brother” and state that “Kendrick would tell you himself he couldn’t body me. Kendrick is my son. Kendrick is my baby. Kendrick wishes he could be me.” Ok then.

The New Orleans rapper also let people know that 50 Cent would get “his fuckin’ eyeballs” slapped “loose out his scalp.” Electronica does however “fuck with Freddie Gibbs.” Maybe he can holler at Madlib for some beat CDs?

Watch the full video below via Montreality’s YouTube channel. Other subjects of conversation included Drake (“our brother”), his long-awaited album (“still alive”, there are 20 different versions), and the Action Bronson vs Ghostface beef.
