Yes, it is promotion for his new album, but it is cool promotion. Michael Bublé covered "Who's Loving You" in a New York City subway to promote his new record "To Be Loved" which came out this week and is bound for the number one spot on Billboard next week.
The performance was done a Capella with the group Naturally 7.
I dig it. What about U?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Canadian Eh?
In Lana Del Rey's new video "Summer Wine" that features her boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill covers the Nancy Sinatra classic.
Barrie-James leads his own band Kassidy. The Sinatra classic is from 1967 where the crooner dueted with Lee Hazelwood. Some blogs who are not doing their research are crediting it as a FRANK SINATRA song, which is not true.
The video clip is quite homemade to get that old-school feel to it.
Above is the Nancy Sinatra original.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Lana & O'Neill do the cover justice....
Here is the official iTunes artwork for "FIXURLIFEUP" by PRINCE & 3rdEYEGIRL, which will be available sometime soon on iTunes.
Notice that 3RDEYEGIRL is mentioned first in the artwork? Hopefully, that will be explained when it is released on iTunes, if all goes according to plans.
Expect a higher quality version of the song than what is circulating from what CBC radio premiered on Friday.
Also, it has come to our attention that Twitter has verified an account that is not run by PRINCE or authorized by PRINCE. An account was created (@PRINCE_NPG) around the Welcome 2 Australia run to delete all other fake PRINCE Twitter accounts, but what Twitter was asking for at the time was too much.
For right now, we urge you to only follow 3rdEYEGIRL on Twitter. Although the account is not verified, we hope that will change to make sure this does not happen again.
We are hoping that this matter gets taken care of by Twitter swiftly and promptly and we thank them for their efforts. It would help if @DRFUNKENBERRY was verified as well but that is another story.
For now, enjoy the artwork and again, it should be available on iTunes April 15th.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Twitter, FIXURLIFEUP!
UPDATE: STILL WAITING ON iTUNES RELEASE......
Janelle Monae visited Jimmy Fallon where she covered "Little Wing" by Jimi Hendrix with The Roots backing her up.
I must say the performance was pretty bad ass.
Check it out above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Who is the hottie behind Questlove? Hello JDG!
Ed Sheeran was a guest on the Australian morning show "Hamish & Andy" where he covered "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift.
Maybe Taylor Swift should write songs for other artists, especially males.
This version has over 300,000 YouTube views compared to Taylor Swift's original which has over 72 million views.
Ed is in trouble if he thought his would get more views than hers. We are sure he didn't though.-DocFB
Diagnosis: More Indie artists LOVE
You know we would never steer you wrong and this video of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay Z should have been released instead of the lyric video!
Misa Campo decided to release her dancing....well...lip-syncing..well, doing something to "Suit & Tie" and it is working!
She didn't exactly need the lingerie towards the end or even the back side shots. It was just working...and she moves more than Justin does in the lyric video that was released last week.
We are wondering if this was released instead of the lyric video if the song would have fallen out of the top 10 so fast?
If you can find a guy doing a better version of the lyric video, let is know and we will post it as well!
Which video is working for you more?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Foreplay really does start with the suit. Know it.
PRINCE promised 2013 is going to be big. Last week he did 6 shows in his hometown that were sold out and this week will be on the cover of Billboard Magazine!
You can read the cover INTERVIEW story HERE!!!!
It was announced last week that PRINCE would be receiving the Icon award at this year's Billboard Awards and will also be performing at the event on May 19th.
We don't know what is inside the magazine yet, but the cover is fire!
If 2013 means seeing PRINCE on the cover of more magazines and TV appearances, then we are all for it.-DocFB
