On episode five of Billboard's TMI: The Music Insider (Dec. 15), host Downtown Julie Brown caught up with rapper Common, who was preparing for the release of new album "The Dreamer/The Believer" (out Dec. 21). Pop diva Taylor Dayne also stopped by, and always, Julie ran down the latest music news and fashion and counted down the 10 biggest hits on the Billboard charts (with the help of our chart expert Keith Caulfield). We also turned our cameras on the recent KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in L.A., where TMI caught up with Mumford & Sons, Foster The People, Blink-182 and others. Watch all the action below, and be sure to tune in again every Thursday at 3pm ET for another new, live episode of TMI.
