Shakira has released her second single from her self titled album. The single "Empire" starts off with the Colombian singer sounding more like Florence & The Machine or Lorde than herself.
I like it. Better than the song with Rihanna before this.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The first line is "Take off all of your skin".....new way of saying underneath your clothes perhaps...?
Karmin is also set to start their tour tomorrow in Baltimore, MD!
The Jam Of The Week is from Liv Warfield and is entitled "Why Do You Lie?" and is from Liv's upcoming album "The Unexpected".
Liv also announced today that she will be performing at the Essence Festival in July.
The video and song is a funk work out with the baddest horn section in the land, Ryan Waters on guitar, and Nik West on bass.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The first Jam Of The Week for 2014.....
"It's hard out here...for a bitch" Lily Allen proclaims in her first new solo recording in three years!
"Hard Out Here" was written by Lily with long-time collaborator Greg Kurstin and was produced by Kurstin.
Lily continues to work on her third studio album which will be released next year.
The track will be available at all DIGITAL retailers on November 19th!
Hopefully people will get that the auto-tune and the twerking in the video along with the poppin' of bottles is making fun of those that do that. Sometimes sarcasm is lost in America. Washing rims in your sink? What?
The silver balloons are a total shot at Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video and his big....ego.
Some will say complaining about the objectification of women while objectifying them in the video cancels each other out.
Do U agree?-DocFB
Diagnosis: L.A. has crazy banana skills.
Karmin is back with their new single #Acapella, which will be released on iTunes June 25th and is our Funkenberry Jam Of The Week!
For now, they have released a lyric video of the song.
A trip to The Olive Garden for bread-sticks never sounded so good. Think I will pass on the buffet though and take an extra helping of this Funkenberry Jam Of The Week!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Funk It....#Acapella
The DrFunkenberry "Jam Of The Week" is "Shake That" by Gimm+Icky! Just who is Gimm+Icky though?
Tripp Weir and Jeff Garrison are GIMM+ICKY and they have scored TV placements on networks like ABC, E!, Nickelodeon, and the NFL Network in just over a year.
“We met up on a Monday with the concept, were immediately on the same page, nailed down the direction of our sound, wrote several choruses, and a day later were asked to sit in at a writers night,” recalls Weir of how the duo got together. “There was immediate response, which of course added fuel to the fire.”
You can purchase "Shake That" on i-Tunes now.
We are TOTALLY digging the track and want you to "Shake That" as well.

Here is the NEW Janelle Monae song "Q.U.E.E.N." featuring Erykah Badu, our DrFunkenberry Jam Of The Week!
Billboard calls the track unpredictable and says it is filled with some Princely guitar work.
Monae takes on religious tolerance and other things in the 5:12 track.
She explained to Billboard:
"This song is inspired by private conversations she (Erykah) and I have had and continue to have,"
"She's a great friend to me; she's like a big sister and it's a song about private dialogue that she and I have had."
There is no release date yet for the song but their will be an upcoming tour. There is discussion by many on the web about if the song is discussing Janelle's sexuality. Janelle somewhat responded in the Tweet below:
Late 2 class? "Q.U.E.E.N."was inspired by private discussions between Erykah & me. JAM. DANCE. FUNK OUT. Listen in the car. dialogue later.
