Auf wiedersehen, Simfy. The rise of Spotify and a lack of licensed music from some of the major labels has forced the German-based streaming music company to raise the white flag and wind down operations.
After releasing eight albums over 11 years, Guillermo S. Herren -- aka, Prefuse 73 -- left his longtime label home and spent four years away from the project. Finally, Prefuse 73 is back with a new album and a new label home for its glitchy, left-field electronic music.
He’s sold over 500,000 albums, his 2013 Long. Live. ASAP album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and he’s earned the industry’s respect for his uncompromising and obscure lyricism. It would be a fair assessment to call hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky, who covers the new issue of Billboard, a master of words -- so naturally, we were curious about what comes to mind when he hears specific ones.
The Willis Clan could definitely qualify as a modern-day Von Trapp Family.

The Oasis brothers have vitriolic opinions on seemingly everything under the sun, so it should come as no surprise that in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Noel Gallagher shared his detailed thoughts on Zayn Malik's sex life.
Throughout her career, Spears has excelled alongside vocal collaborators — from Madonna to Pharrell to will.i.am to her sister, Jamie Lynn — but there are still a handful of artists and producers she has yet to link up with.
Taylor Swift started her 1989 Tour at Tokyo Dome in the city’s Suidobashi district on Tuesday night. The 55,000 seat cylindrical stadium was packed to the hilt, and the organizers placed light-emitting wristbands on every seat so the entire crowd illuminated and changed colors in unison.
The guitar solo is under siege on country radio, and even the artists whose identities are tied to their in-concert musicianship are required to pick their spots to step out on their recordings if they expect them to get played.
Beyoncé's Givenchy Met Gala dress reminded a lot of people of the classic TV show, I Dream of Jeannie -- particularly with her super-retro high ponytail. But did the eternally glamorous singer actually have more current wardrobe inspiration?
