Included in this post are some explosive photos from the biggest music event in radio history!! The 2013 iHeartRadio Music festival went down last weekend at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. A long list of heavyweight musicians graced the stage including; Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, Drake, J. Cole, TLC, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Tiesto, Muse, Keith Urban, Chris Brown, Miguel, Bruno Mars, Zedd, Ke$sha, and Robin Thicke just to name a few. This massive 2-day event was a music lover’s dream-come-true! Check out the pics…
J COLE continues to captivate the rap music industry dropping new visuals for his Billboard Top 40 hit, “Crooked Smile” off of his critically-acclaimed, “Born Sinner” album. “Cooked Smile” offers a powerful message within itself, but Cole takes the video deeper, delving into the real life story of Aiyana Jones, a 7 year girl who was accidentally shot by the DEA in Detroit. The messages in the song and video differ, but he used the popularity of the song to get the video viewed and get his message across to the millions anticipating the video. It’s an amazing concept and a great tribute. And it’s always nice to see artists use their platform for good; Thank you J. Cole.
“Cup Inside a Cup” is the latest visual off Stalley’s ‘Mixtape of the Year’ nominated “Honest Cowboy”. The video is directed by Daniel Cummings and the song is produced by BCG’s own Black Diamond. “The Honest Cowboy” EP dropped yesterday 9/17 on iTunes!
Arsenio Hall is back!!! And Snoop Dog had the Arsenio House Rocking and Partying. Snoop performed his classic hit, “What’s My Name”, but one Snoop Dogg song wasn’t enough. So Arsenio brought the D-O-Double-G out to close the show with “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” The band added a nice touch to his performance. Loved it. Welcome Back Arsenio, King of Late Night Show.
Are we building a new generation of hologram old-school hip hop artists? I think so. 18 months ago, Tupac, in the form of a hologram, was resurrected and shocked fans with a performance at the Coachella Music Festival in California. Now we have another legend who’s appeared from beyond the grave… EASY E!
Check out the video of the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s set at Rock the Bells 2013 Saturday night. Halfway through their performances, the members of the Cleveland hip hop group cleared the middle of the stage to introduce the former N.W.A. member. Hologram Eazy-E, rises as 1988’s “We Want Eazy” played in the background. The memorable moment in Hip Hop went down and the realistic features on the hologram which really brought the Compton rapper back if even for one night.
Talk about having one of the best times ever!! “Blurred Lines” &“Get Lucky’s”, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams graced the stage yesterday at the glamorous Fountainebleu Hilton on world famous Miami Beach…an event that’s part of the hotel’s recurring BleauLive series.
It was too hot for clothes and all the sexy people sipped champagne and cocktails by the pool while listening to the inviting vocals of the R&B superstar and the Grammy-winning super-producer, both with the two biggest songs of the summer! My favorite Pharrell performance was ‘Beautiful’ off of Snoop’s album, where he serenaded bikini babes. And Thicke kicked things off with ‘I Wanna Love You Girl’, ending with his hit ‘Blurred Lines’. The pool party and concert were absolutely a great way to celebrate Labor Day Weekend! Check out the pics.
