Review: Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ Is Indulgent, Obsessive and Brilliant – Just What We’ve Come to Expect
Album Reviews

Drake began the rollout for Scorpion six months ago. In a landscape of surprise releases and disposable moments, he’s one of the last stars standing still aiming at ’90s-style ubiquity: singles released months apart, glossy music videos (thanks to young director Karena Evans) and (perhaps not as intentionally), tabloid-teased storylines. Scorpion, his fifth official album – though ninth full-length, when counting the mixtapes and playlists in his catalog – stays within that tradition. It’s an...

Paul McCartney’s Producer Greg Kurstin Breaks Down ‘Egypt Station’

Paul McCartney cut most of his new album, Egypt Station, in Los Angeles and Sussex, England, but for the finishing touches, there was only one place to go: Abbey Road in London.

What makes a summer jam? Is it the sunniest chorus, the hottest beat, the most weeks on the charts? Do the lyrics have to be about beaches and barbecues, or is it a question of vibe? What if it’s a song on your summer playlist and no one else’s? We believe the answer is “all of the above.” This summer, Rolling Stone’s writers are celebrating the songs that are ruling each of their worlds – from huge hits to weirder,...

His group Foster the People still had an intensely loyal following and enough juice to land an opening slot on Paramore’s summer arena tour, but after exploding onto the scene in 2011 with their debut single “Pumped Up Kicks” they saw song after song fail to leave the narrow confines of the Alternative Rock chart and enter the Hot 100....
