Premature Evaluation: Drake Views
Apr 29, 2016 2:25pm | StereoGum
Drake - ViewsIt's been five years since Drake discovered the wonders and mysteries of his own ass. On 2011's Take Care, his second album, Drake managed to turn himself into a compelling and fully-formed character: an ascendant rap god, excited but freaked out by his own ...

What would Drakes Views have sounded like if it wasnt an Apple Music exclusive?
Apr 29, 2016 2:17pm | Chart Attack

Drake's Views dropped exclusively on Apple Music last night, as I'm sure anyone with an internet connection knows by now. I've been listening to it all day, but I can't help but wonder: what would Views have been like if it wasn't being used as a chess piece in the ongoing streaming wars?

As I'm sure is the case with a lot of you, I was tuned into Beats 1 Radio last night in hopes of catching Drake's interview with Zane Lowe, scheduled to air at 9 pm EST, then pushed back to 10:45. Well, 10:45 came, and still no interview. 10:55 came, and I was impatiently listening to a Rae Sremmurd song on Beats 1. Then, as Twitter was virtually exploding with anticipation, boom, the album drops.

"Alright, screw the interview," said me and everyone else. "I'm listening to Views."

CN Tower employees are tired of answering questions about Drake

But, wait... what happened to the Jay Z and Kanye West verses on "Pop Style" that dropped before the Throne-less version he played on OVO Sound Radio a few days later? What gives?

"I was just having conversation with Kanye that just landed in my lap, so I just dealt with it accordingly," sa...

Details of Princes death currently suppressed due to criminal investigation
Apr 29, 2016 2:14pm | Fact Magazine

Carver County Sheriffs Office cite criminal probe exception to public-record laws.

A week after Prince’s death, details have remained tightly under wraps and there’s a good reason for it: The rockstar’s death has now become part of a criminal probe according to a report from the Carver County Sheriffs Office, the Star Tribune.

Though neither suicide or foul play are suspected in Prince’s death, the law plainly states: “investigative data collected or created by a law enforcement agency in order to prepare a case against a person, whether known or unknown, for the commission of a crime or other offense for which the agency has primary investigative responsibility are confidential or protected nonpublic while the investigation is active.

Currently police are investigating whether an opioid overdose played a role in Prince’s death and whether the prescription pills found at Paisley Park were prescribed to Prince and where they came from. The DEA is currently not involved in the case, according to Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud, who released the criminal probe report.

It remains unclear who made the 911 call from Paisley Park or if anyone in the building spoke to investigators after Prince’s death.

Recently, sources close with Prince’s family said the singer had a long-standing addiction to the opiate painkiller...

Beyonce's new album 'Lemonade' is vital, and maybe her best yet
Apr 29, 2016 2:14pm | Brooklyn Vegan

If you're still thinking Beyonce is too pop or not authentic due to working with songwriters, you're boring and you're missing out on one of the most vital artists around. She made the jump from Singles Artist to Album Artist with 2011's retro-soul-inspired 4, she blew that album away and turned "alternative R&B" into "mainstream R&B" with 2013's self-titled LP, and it's quite possible that the newly-released Lemonade blows its predecessor away as well...

Twin Peaks unveil new song I Dont Want to Miss You listen
Apr 29, 2016 1:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Record Store Day has come and gone, but Twin Peaks have a new 7-inch on the way that’s exclusive to independent vinyl shops. The special release will come packaged with the band’s upcoming album Down in Heaven and includes two songs, “I Don’t Want to Miss You” and “Disappear”.

Today, the CoSigned garage rockers have shared a vinyl rip of the former. It’s a quick hitter of a cut, 60 seconds of slowly tumbling guitars. Like their previous singles “Butterfly” and “Walk to the One You Love”, it’s just begging to be performed in a musty, dusty saloon while onlookers take a couple swigs of whiskey.

The Chicago outfit has offered up this statement on the release:

Our new album Down In Heaven is out 5/13. We love vinyl, we love small businesses, so we like to work with record stores. SO, we made an exclusive version of the album featuring a 7 with two songs you cant get anywhere else but local record stores. This is the A-side, I Dont Want To Miss You. Call your local record shop to see if theyre ordering a copy for you. #runitagain

Stream “I Don’t Want to Miss You” below.

Also, here’s a preview of “Disappear”:

Update: Will Ferrell drops out of Ronald Reagan dementia political comedy
Apr 29, 2016 1:20pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Will Ferrell has long been known as the nations foremost impersonator of George W. Bush (sorry, Josh Brolin), and now it looks like he has another former U.S. president in his sights: Ronald Reagan. As Variety reports, Ferrell is attached to star as The Gipper himself in Reagan, a political comedy based on a script penned by Mike Rosolio.

Update – Friday, April 29th at 12:50 p.m. CT: Amid growing controversy, Ferrell has backed out of the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The Reagan script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered,” said his spokesperson in a statement. “While it is by no means a ‘Alzheimers comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project.”

Buzz around Rosolios script has been high since it landed on the Black List, an annual list of Hollywoods most liked unproduced screenplays, in December 2015. Far from a reverent look back on Reagans legacy, the film focuses on the comedic potential of his much-publicized dementia. According to the Black List logline, When Ronald Reagan falls into dementia at the start of his second term, an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the commander in chief that he is an actor playing the president in a movie.

Following not long after the death of former First Lady Nancy Reagan in March, the film is sure to draw pl...

Criminal probe launched in investigation of Princes death
Apr 29, 2016 1:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Speculation about the exact circumstances surrounding Princes death has been extensive in the week since his passing. Though there have been reports that it may be connected to a drug overdose, little information about the 911 call or emergency response to Paisley Park have been revealed. Now, the StarTribune has learned why so few police particulars have been revealed: The Carver County Sheriffs Office is in the middle of a criminal probe.

In an incident report released by Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud, the Sheriff’s Office explained why the details of the 911 call and response have been kept under wraps by citing an exception to Minnesota’s public-record laws. The rule in question allows for the suppression of information if it’s related to an active “criminal” investigation.

(Read: A Brief History of Prince Being Prince)

Specifically, the rule reads, “… investigative data collected or created by a law enforcement agency in order to prepare a case against a person, whether known or unknown, for the commission of a crime or other offense for which the agency has primary investigative responsibility are confidential or protected nonpublic while the investigation is active.

It’s worth noting that just because there is a criminal probe underway, it does not mean there will be charges filed. Authorities have sa...
