But we want to be goofy and a little bit rude. We want to write songs that people can dance to.

Chance the Rapper and Dionne Warwick Share New Single “Nothing’s Impossible”: Stream

Chance the Rapper has a song out with Dionne Warwick. Yes, you read that right: the Chicago rapper has teamed up with the R&B legend, TV host, and Twitter personality for the new single, “Nothing’s Impossible.” We can safely assume that Chance and Warwick made their first interaction via Twitter back in December 2020, when the singer wrote: “Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.” Not long after, she teased that the duo would be in the studio together to put out a song benefitting both their charities (Chance’s SocialWorks and Warwick’s Hunger: Not Impossible). The result was “Nothing’s Impossible,” a slinky ballad that feels right in line with Warwick’s hits from the late ’70s and ’80s. And, ri...

He previously contributed a classical piece for the Birmingham Cathedral in 2017, but otherwise, “Scent of Dark” is Iommi’s first traditionally heavy rock song since Black Sabbath’s 201...

Between his early masterpieces like Hunky Dory and his 26th and final album Blackstar, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that David Bowie made plenty of music that fell through the cracks or never saw a proper release. But Ziggy Stardust devotees will be happy to know that Toy, Bowie’s elusive 2001 album, has finally received its proper commercial release today. Toy arrives as part of an archival box set titled Brilliant Adventure (1992 – 2001). Bowie recorded it in 2001, in the aftermath of his 2000 Glastonbury performance. His intent with Toy was to reimagine some of his earlier recordings with a full band and then surprise-release the record, but when his label EMI/Virgin squashed those plans, Bowie signed to Columbia, ditched Toy altogether, a...
