Major Lazer promise to “set the streets on fire” in the cameo-filled “Night Riders,” an explosive track from the dancehall-EDM trio’s upcoming LP, Peace Is the Mission . Rappers 2 Chainz, Pusha T and Travi$ Scott contribute to the track, while Mad Decent reggae artist Mad Cobra throws in frenetic vocals. Watch Major Lazer Trace Their Reggae Roots in Jamaica Pusha tosses off strong one-liners in his opening verse, including “Outlaw, outlaw / Like I hit the Powerball.” But 2 Chainz, as he tends to do, steals the entire song. “Got a California King in my condo / Got a motherfuckin’ big screen by the front door,” he rhymes. “Got a guest bedroom filled up with fur coats / Ain’t no room in this bitch to even jump rope.” Peace Is the Mission , the group’s third album, is out June 1st via Mad Decent and features additional guest appearances from Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Wild Belle and DJ Snake, among others
Since 1944, Billboard ‘s Country Songs chart has served as something of a microcosm of country trends, in addition to reflecting the ever-changing musical tastes of country fans across the nation. When it comes to women and country music, although feminism certainly impacted the charts throughout the Seventies, thanks to such pioneering artists as the gutsy Loretta Lynn, it would be early in the next decade before women would dominate the charts in an unprecedented way. See Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris’ ‘Crazy’ Duet April 19th, 1980, was a watershed moment marked by a significant chart feat which had never before been achieved — and has never since. That week, the top five spots on the Hot Country Singles chart (now titled Hot Country Songs) were occupied by five women (and one man as part of a duet). They were: 1

Earlier this week, Tim McGraw announced plans to swing his summertime tour through Hartford, Connecticut, and play a benefit show for Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organization that formed in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. Widely Reported School Shootings Since 2000 Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, McGraw’s two opening acts on the Shotgun Rider tour, were originally scheduled to play the gig, as well. That changed yesterday afternoon, when Currington — caught in the middle of a social media firestorm ignited by gun rights advocates — cancelled his appearance. The trouble started on Tuesday, with a 255-word article published by Breitbart.com. A conservative website whose recent headlines include “Zoinks!: Clinton Parks ‘Scooby’ Van in Handicap Space — Just Behind Vacant Spot! ” and “Bruce Willis and Demi Moore Daughter: Nipples Represent Equality,” Breitbart examined the Sandy Hook benefit from a decidedly right-wing perspective, branding it a “gun control fundraiser” and promising that “the money McGraw and Currington raise will ultimately succeed in making it harder for law-abiding citizens to acquire and carry the guns they need for self-defense.” The article’s author, Awr Hawkins, even backed up his assertions by citing an older Breitbart article from last December, published shortly after the two-year anniversary of the school shootings. Coincidentally, Hawkins had written that piece, too

It’s unclear exactly how many phone calls Jay Z and White have made
