In promotion of Taylor Swift’s most recent album, “1989,” the pop princess released videos of tracks “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space,” the record’s first two singles. Today, Swift followed up with the release of the album’s third single video, “Style.” While the track is one of the album’s best, the video, directed by Kyle Newman, leaves something to be desired.
With 1.287 million record sales in the first week alone (more than the combined sales of last week’s 70 biggest-selling albums), former queen of country Taylor Swift has solidified her transition to the pop market.
After almost two years since his debut album, rapper G-Eazy dropped a sophomore album at 12 a.m. this morning, “These Things Happen,” which is currently sitting at #2 on iTunes top albums, behind Ed Sheeran’s “X (Deluxe Edition).”
With a national tour, collaborations with artists like Hoodie Allen, Skizzy Mars and E-40 and an upcoming album, rapper G-Eazy is garnering a great deal of attention on the indie rap scene. The Oakland, Calif. native and Loyola University New Orleans graduate boasts a sound somewhere between Macklemore and Bob Dylan, and is touring the US promoting his new album. The up-and-comer stopped in Boston this past weekend for a sold-out show at the Paradise Rock Club. Before the show, G called in from Grand Rapids, Mich. to talk with The News about his success and his plans for the future.
