Four years after its initial release date was set, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is finally here. Ahead of its release, Weezy sat down with Billboard’s Dan Rys in Miami for a revealing cover story about the lawsuits and preteen suicide attempt that played into this long-gestating album. On this week’s Must-Hear Music podcast, Dan stops by to talk about interviewing one of rap’s greatest — and chat about Carter V highlights such as “Uproar” and the Kendrick Lamar-featuring “Mona Lisa.”
With the release of A Star Is Born coming up quick, we also talk about “Shallow,” the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper duet that previews the third remake of the classic Hollywood flick. Similar to “Shallow,” which had Twitter going nuts before the full song was even out, we look at Robyn’s long-awaited “Honey,” which is finally here. Plus, we look at DJ Snake’s star-studded “Taki Taki,” which boasts Selena Gomez, Cardi B and Ozuna.
