Listen to the latest episode of Billboard.com's weekly audio breakdown.
Welcome to the latest episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard's weekly half-hour audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year's biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard.com associate editor Jason Lipshutz and Billboard associate director of charts Keith Caulfield every Thursday on the free Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to last week's episode).
This week's episode is an extra-long special recap of the 2014 Coachella festival, with Jason and Keith welcoming Billboard.com editor (and Coachella expert) Tye Comer onto the show to discuss the highs and lows of Weekend 1. The guys talk about Outkast's polarizing reunion performance, Lana Del Rey's star-making show, Pharrell's guest-star-laden showcase, cameos by pop stars like Justin Bieber and Beyonce (among others), buzzworthy sets by Future Islands and Banks, the Replacements' lackluster crowd, Leonardo Dicaprio's crazy field dance, and much more. There's also a chat about the continued dominance of the "Frozen" soundtrack, which might be No. 1 for another few weeks! Plus a fun Chart Stat of the Week, the economics of festival surprises, Madonna, Solange and much much more.
