The Chemical Brothers Team Up with Lorde and Miguel for ‘Hunger Games’ Track


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part I is so close to being released in theaters and we have yet to hear any of the songs on the upcoming film’s soundtrack.

A few months back, it was revealed New Zealand singer, Lorde would be taking over the job as “curator” of the soundtrack. Up until now, we’ve only head one song from the film’s soundtrack, Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” which was present in the latest trailer for the film.

Today, those wonder when we will get another track from the record were given an electronic track titled “This is Not a Game.”

But if you think this is just another run-of-the-mill soundtrack song or another Lorde song that could find its home on her album Pure Heroine then you would be wrong.

“This is Not a Game” which premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio show (as always) is a Chemical Brothers’ song which feature Lorde and Miguel on vocals.

Yes, quite a mix, but don’t expect Lorde to be a prominent fixture on the track because she really only there to say three words, “there it is.”

Check out the song below.

“This is Not a Game” is now the second song confirmed for the soundtrack which raises the question, “when are we getting the rest of the list of artists?”

Soon, we hope since The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part I comes out on Nov. 21 while the soundtrack will reportedly be released on Nov. 17.

Drake Cancels Philadelphia Show


Not a really good way to start a tour by already cancelling it before it’s even begun.

Last night, during his second official tour stop in Philadelphia as part of his Would You Like a Tour, Drake cancelled the performance just a mere hours before it was scheduled to begin.

Local website, reports that at the time that the rapper decided to pull the plug on the show, fans had already entered the Wells Fargo Center for the show that night. Once everyone had been inside, the venue received the news of the cancelled show and had to notify the attendees about the cancellation.

A spokesperson for the venue issued a last-minute explanation or rather excuse for why the show had been canned before it even began. “Due to the elaborate nature of tonight’s show and an unexpected technical issue, Drake’s ‘Would You Like A Tour’ concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia has been postponed until Wednesday, December 18th.”

If that excuse sounds oddly familiar, it is quite similar to the original excuse that was given as to why Drake had decided to reschedule the entire tour last-minute last month.

But things have been looking less than optimistic for this tour since it was first announced. First the rapper re-schedules the entire tour for almost the same reason. Then rumors start circulating that he had kicked off opening act, Future after he spoke out against Drake’s new album. Future was stated as saying that Nothing Was the Same, the new album, “is full of hits, but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.”

When Future and his legal team threatened a lawsuit, the rumor was dubbed just that, a rumor and now the cancellation of a tour date just an hour before it was supposed to go on.

Not only were the audience members surprised by the revelation of the cancellation, it looks like Drake’s other opening act did not get the memo either. Miguel took to Twitter last night saying, “Man, just found out, unfortunately tonight’s show in Philly is cancelled. Can’t wait to find out the rescheduled date and come back and rock.”

Instead of hiding out from the public, Miguel and his band did go to another Philadelphia location to give a show for those bummed about the cancelled show.

Drake to Reschedule Upcoming Tour


Those that were hoping that Drake would be coming to a city near you as part of his North American tour, might just have to wait a little longer because it was just confirmed that the rapper’s tour has been pushed back.

Today, Drake’s rep confirmed through a press release that the show has indeed been pushed back  “due to an intense rehearsal schedule and technical production requirements that will be part of the show.

“The 39-city arena tour will now kick off October 18 in Pittsburgh, PA. Stops in Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Cleveland have been canceled due to the rescheduling. Refunds for the cancelled dates are available,” read the full press release.

The newly re-vamped version of the Would You Like A Tour? show will kick off on October 18 in Pittsburgh, PA at the PA Consol Energy Center. Stops for the 39-date tour will include stops in Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and will eventually wrap up on December 16 in  Auburn Hills, MI at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

While the tour has been pushed back, it doesn’t look like Drake is taking the time for granted; the former actor has appearances line-up for the next week. Today, he’s scheduled to perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show while tomorrow he will be taking the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

But his big week doesn’t end there since his new album, Nothing Was the Same is scheduled to drop on September 24.

Miguel Charged with Two Counts of Drunk Driving


Looks like Miguel is in a lot more trouble than knocking some girl out during a performance; the singer has official been charged with D.U.I.

Last month, the “Adorn” singer had been arrested for drunken driving in Los Angeles where he blew .10 and .11; in California, the legal limit is .08.

Today, it was revealed that the singer has been charged with two counts of drunk driving. Initially, he had been stopped by the police for having excessively dark tint on the windows of his 2013 BMW X6. It was during that stop that the authorities suspected that he had been drinking. They gave him the breathalyzer test which only confirmed what had been suspected.

Authorities did say that the singer had been cooperative throughout the entire process, and was released that morning on a $5000 bail.

Miguel’s case is scheduled to go before a judge next Monday, September 9th.



Miguel Arrested for D.U.I.


When you’ve got a song with the titled, “How Many Drinks?” you might have to start to wonder if it came from past experience and for Miguel, it looks like that just happened.

The singer who has become famous for injuring a girl during his leapfrog stunt at the American Music Awards, as much for his music, was arrest early this morning for drunken driving in Los Angeles.

The  singer was pulled over by California Highway Patrol at around 2:15 a.m. when they noticed his BMW speeding. When they pulled him over, officers reportedly smelled alcohol on him and proceeded to fail several  field sobriety tests.

When he was given the breathalyzer tests, the “Adorn” singer blew .10 and .11; in California, the legal limit is .08. Officials said that he was very cooperative the entire time and was later released on $5,000 bail at 5 a.m.

The Grammy winner, who’s full name according to the arrest report is Miguel Pimentel, is currently scheduled to be back in court Sept. 9 in Los Angeles.

Now this would be the part where all the “How Many Drinks?” jokes can start.
