Featuring recent interviews with Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, Andre 3000, Disney star Zendaya and the legendary Stevie Wonder.
The only thing better than 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler’s performance in Chandelier is Jimmy Kimmel and his sidekick Guillermo in leotards trying to learn her dance from it.
This interview is like that scene in the Wizard of Oz when you get to see what’s behind it all. Rick Rubin is a musical wizard. One of the most genius music producers of all time. Rick shares so much of what makes him great with Zane Lowe in the backyard of his LA home and if you’re a music lover, this will be like heaven.
No matter how much great new music comes out, I still find myself going back to the classics so I want to honor that occasionally on this blog with #FlashbackFriday.
Starting off with Stevie Wonder and a song that features lines like “did you know that true love asks for nothing?” A song that I’m convinced should be played by doctors giving treatment for depression because its joy is so contagious. It’s especially awesome to experience it along with this visual of Stevie and his band performing it in the studio. The original session audio for this video was skipping so the audio you’ll here is re-synced from the version that ended up on the album Songs In The Key Of Life but it is still amazing to see that big smile of his to go with this inspiring song.
You might remember Madi from the episode of The Q Side she appeared on a few years back. Well she is back with this passionate anthem for anyone in a relationship and suckers for love like me. Download it here.
It’s great to see Dave Chappelle back in action leading up to his 9 show run at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. In this interview with Jimmy Fallon, Dave shared a few hilarious stories about how he met The Roots and Kanye West.
I may not have time to watch much of the World Cup but I will be jamming to this song inspired by it. It’s written by Aloe Blacc, IN- Q and Rock Mafia, who also produced it.
Over the holiday weekend, Jim Carrey delivered this incredibly insightful commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management in Iowa. He’s an avid meditator so it makes a lot of sense that the school would invite him to their stage, considering how the school encourages their students to practice meditation like the Maharishi himself.
It’s not often we get to see Jim being so earnest and emotional for any significant length of time. Jim still manages to slip a few great jokes in this speech but it’s remarkable to see him focusing more on the keys to his success and saying things like, “You could fail at what you don’t love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
Apparently John is as much of a fan of this Beyonce song as I am. He sung it live last month when he performed in Australia and now we have his studio recording of it. The Dream wrote this song and I can just imagine how satisfied he feels hearing this amazing interpretation and how well his song swerves styles.
