Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, K-Pop Acts See a Huge Boost in 2024 Sales With ‘Variants’: The Same Album in Different Packages

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music Exclusive bonus tracks… Five different shades of vinyl… Tour booklet with exclusive photos… “Fans First” exclusive picture disc… Boxed set with candle, hoodie and CD… Target exclusive, Amazon exclusive, Urban Outfitters exclusive… exclusive exclusive exclusive… “Variants” — multiple different vinyl, CD or cassette versions of an already-released album or EP — have become a booming business in the music industry, helping to drive sales and chart numbers for artists ranging from superstars to cult favorites.

Megan Moroney Proves She’s a Country Music Keeper With Her Candid and Accomplished Second Record, ‘Am I Okay?’: Album Review

Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic That “Tennessee Orange” gal is in the black, as far as her country music currency goes. Megan Moroney‘s second album proves that she’s a country keeper, if there was any concern — and there shouldn’t have been — that her 2023 debut album, “Lucky,” was a fluke. Coming just 14 months after that record’s arrival, “Am I Okay?” is more than just all right: It establishes that she’s one of traditional-leaning country’s best and brightest new standard-bearers, upholding the most essential of the old values in a broadly beguiling new package.

Artemas Builds on the Smash Success of ‘I Like the Way You Kiss Me’ With ‘Yustyna’: Mixtape Review

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music It’s hard to imagine that anyone who clicked on this article isn’t familiar with “I Like the Way You Kiss Me,” the song by fast-rising 24-year-old British singer-songwriter-producer Artemas that has quickly become one of the biggest and most ubiquitous songs of 2024. The song’s pulsating beat and dark vibe, which contrasts with the happy-sounding chorus, is a perfect entrée for Artemas’ dark bedroom pop, which got its first extended airing on the “Pretty” mixtape, which was released in February.

Eminem Moves Ahead — and Retreads Into Tired Habits — on ‘The Death of Slim Shady’: Album Review

Steven J. Horowitz Senior Music Writer “You created me to say everything you didn’t have the balls to say,” raps Eminem, or, more technically, his alter ego Slim Shady on “Guilty Conscience 2,” a cut off the emcee’s 12th album “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce).” Over a brooding, stormy instrumental, Em takes the original song’s conceit — playing bad guy to Dr. Dre’s sounder mind — to pore over the damage that Slim has inflicted on his career and artistry.

Eminem Disses Diddy Multiple Times on New Album, ‘The Death of Slim Shady’

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music It wouldn’t be an Eminem album without some choice and often off-color-if-not-offensive words for fellow hip-hop luminaries, and the veteran rapper’s just-released 12th studio LP, “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” singles out Kanye West, Ja Rule and even Lizzo, along with Caitlyn Jenner, the late Christopher Reeve and his own mother. However, he saved his most vicious attacks for Sean “Diddy” Combs, who has been slammed with multiple sexual assault or misconduct lawsuits amid allegations reaching back decades.

James Blake and Lil Yachty Make an Odd but Unexpectedly Strong Couple on ‘Bad Cameo’: Album Review

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music As this album’s cover artwork suggests — it appears to show a restaurant table with one man drinking tea and eating baked beans, and the other drinking syrup — a full-length collaboration album between British avant singer-songwriter James Blake and psychedelicized Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty might not have been on anyone’s prediction list for 2024. But even knowing both artists’ predilection for the unexpected, it’s a surprisingly symbiotic alliance.

Prime Video’s ‘My Lady Jane’ Is Outlandish, Ahistorical and a Great Bit of Fun: TV Review

Aramide Tinubu In 16th century England, Lady Jane Grey was a 16-year-old girl who became the Queen of England for a paltry nine days before her head was swiftly removed from her body. Historians and fans of the Tudors know this sad tale, but Prime Video‘s “My Lady Jane,” created by Gemma Burgess, isn’t interested in historical facts. Instead, the quippy dramedy, which is based on the best-selling novel by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows, bends and twists Jane’s story.

Why ‘Purple Rain’ Led Prince to Turn His Back on the Superstardom He’d Manifested

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music After your masterplan succeeds and so many of your dreams come true… then what? That is a question a 26-year-old Prince may well have been asking himself after “Purple Rain” transformed him into a global superstar virtually overnight (or whatever passed for “overnight” in 1984). While his rise was gradual — “Purple Rain,” released on this day 40 years ago, was Prince’s sixth album — there’s no disputing the remarkable speed with which his fame skyrocketed during the summer of “Ghostbusters,” the Los Angeles Olympics and “Born in the U.S.A.” Granted, musical careers, like nearly everything else, moved more gradually back then.

Justin Timberlake Thanks Fans at First Concert Since DWI: ‘I Know Sometimes I’m Hard to Love’

Jem Aswad Executive Editor, Music Justin Timberlake thanked fans in the way most suited for him at his first concert since spending the night in jail after being arrested for DWI earlier this week. “It’s been a tough week,” he said at Chicago’s United Center Friday night, after a long pause filled with cheering from the crowd. “I know sometimes I’m hard to love, but you keep on loving me and I love you right back.” He then led the band into “Selfish,” the first single from his latest album, “Everything I Thought It Was.” He didn’t apologize explicitly or refer directly to the incident, but his sentiment seemed implicit to many vocal members of the audience.
