Eminem released the full track list all at once for MMLP2 and we are grateful for that. No game of dropping a title once an hour. Nope. Just put it straight out there.
Eminem will have duets with Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Skylar Gray, and Nate Reuss of FUN.
P!nk's "Truth About Love" was one of the few great albums of 2012. With the video "Just Give Me A Reason" featuring Nick Ruess of FUN., P!nk shows she is about to have an impact on 2013.
The video shows her real life husband Corey Hart playing the veteran's LOVE interest in the video.
We can give you a million reasons why we LOVE this video. It is nice to see a real life couple in a video such as this. Nick fully compliments P!nk with their vocals and they blend with perfection.
This song came on my Ipod last Sunday and was hoping it would be released as a single with a video. I don't listen to radio but I knew more people needed to be reached with this song. Glad to see it happen.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Wonder how many girls are wanting the teddy bear....?
Tegan and Sara's new album "Heartthrob" debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, their highest debut EVER in their 13 year career.
We have been covering T&S a lot over the past few months. We are not taking credit for their biggest success ever but there is no such thing as coincidence though....
More than doubling their previous high for Sainthood's first week back in 2009, Heartthrob sold over 49,000 copies this week, debuting at #3 on Billboard Top 200 and #1 on both the Billboard Alternative and Rock charts.
In support of Heartthrob, Tegan and Sara have announced a huge North American summer tour with their good friends in FUN. The "Most Nights" tour kicks in early July and runs through the end of September. A full list of confirmed dates is below. Says Jack Antonoff of FUN. "Tegan and Sara greatly impacted the way I think about writing and recording music at the moment that FUN. was forming and for me, that makes it extra special that we get to tour together this summer...Heartthrob is absolutely incredible and the three of us are so thrilled to hear it live every night this summer!"
Tegan And Sara are also nominated for a Grammy this Sunday for Best Long Form Video for their live album/documentary "Get Along" and it is the bands first ever Grammy nomination!

Diagnosis: Rihanna has 5 Grammy's. Taylor Swift has 6. Says a lot.
The more performers they add, the more upset I am that the special is in Nashville, TN than Los Angeles this year. Ne-Yo and Fun. have officially been added to the Grammy Nomination Special that will air on CBS December 5th.
They join Luke Bryan and Maroon 5 as performers for the show that will be co-hosted by LL Cool J and Taylor Swift. The event will take place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. After the show tapes, Maroon 5 will perform a special one hour concert for the crowd in attendance.
The Grammy Nominations Special has been getting pretty impressive ratings in the 5 years since they started having them. Last years show raked in just under 40 million viewers, which was the largest Grammy audience since 1984.
The Grammys will be handed out in Los Angeles Sunday Feb. 10th on CBS.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Ne-Yo's new album R.E.D. is out now.
If you have had your TV on the background while doing stuff, you have more than likely heard "We Are Young" by Fun. The song is everywhere.
We dig the song. Not so sure about that tongue action at the end but ok then.
The original and video version feature Janelle Monae where Fun are dressed much better than thier Letterman appearance.
Does anyone know if Janelle has performed the song live with Fun?
Hope you enjoy the performance!-DocFB
