On this week's episode, Jason and Keith discuss Jack White's No. 1 debut and record-setting vinyl sales; Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" run at No. 1, and if there's a song coming that could knock it out of the top spot; the projected sales successes of Lana Del Rey's "Ultraviolence" and Sam Smith's "In The Lonely Hour"; and what exactly went wrong with Jennifer Lopez's "A.K.A." rollout. Plus, the podcast welcomes special guests The Vamps, who talk about working with Demi Lovato on "Somebody To You," their screaming fans and how they plan to roll out an album in the United States. All that, plus PSY's "Hangover," Nicki Minaj's latest hit, whether or not Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" can be the song of the summer, post-Bonnaroo malaise, Carole King's "Tapestry" and much more.
