We knew Adele had broken a sales record for her newest album, "25," but her sales also far outpaced those of the band that previously sold the most records in a week.

Adele's album "25" sold 3.38 million copies in its first week, far surpassing NSYNC's 2000 album "No Strings Attached," which held the record for most album sales in a week after selling 2.416 million albums at that time.

Thus Adele holds the record for most albums sold in a week since Nielsen started examining these numbers in 1991.

Adele's work was released on Nov. 20 and so is of course expected to...

German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS performed in Paris, France Tuesday night (November 24), marking the first time the band has played the city since an extremist group orchestrated a terror attack on Paris that left 130 dead.

The sold-out concert at the Bercy arena included an emotional moment when SCORPIONS drummer James Kottak beat the rhythm of the French national anthem, “La Marseillaise”, which the crowd sang a capella.

SCORPIONS singer Klaus Meine told DPA ahead of the concert: “Our France tour is overshadowed by these sad and terrible events. Of course we’re also here to deal with the situation… this tragedy,...

Force of nature Anderson.Paak continues to excite us with dope collaborations and brilliant cuts that highlight his versatility and magnificence!

Recently he dropped an incredible single entitled Am I Wrong supported on da mic by TDE rapper Schoolboy Q and assisted by HW&W Recordings young producer Pomo.

Mr.Paak delights with a supa-ultra-fonky-fonky trip flecked with late 1970s disco-boogie and urban hip-hop modern touch with Schoolboy Q rhymes.

Mad props to  Pomo (stands for Port Moody) !

The Vancouver native based out of Montreal earned notoriety thanks Kaytranada who put Pomo’s music into his mixes, giving him the opportunity to appeal a wide audience base.

Taking their cues from retro garage and pop, Cave Ghosts‘ music often sounds like the soundtrack to hanging out at a beach bar or a tropical excursion in the same way their influences The Shangri-Las and the Beach Boys conjure up lazy summer days.For the five-piece’s new double A-side single, they’ve kept that warm fuzzy feeling intact with ‘All My Life’ featuring Jen Connell wistfully longing for another accompanied by handclaps while Aoife O’Carra takes the mic for ‘Mariposa’, for some sweet indie-pop brightness. The single is out November 25th on Road Movie Records. Pre-orders and more...

One of the fastest ways to get to know a person isn’t by reading their diary, creeping their social media, or even spending face to face time with them. The fastest way to really learn about a person is by uncovering what they watch on YouTube.

Do they like DIY videos about make-up? Prank videos? Maybe they love watching acceptance speeches from award shows. Do they listen to more artists performing covers than original songs or keep their YouTube diet strictly sports bloopers-based?

Thankfully for us, Tegan and Sara have shared the favourite YouTube videos, which makes it easier...

The Bataclan in Paris cuts an eerie presence on the Boulevard Voltaire right now. The road itself is closed off, with the adjacent Boulevard Richard-Lenoir separated from it by a narrow park flanked by fences. On Sunday, large crowds were craning over the railings to get photos of a famous venue now made infamous. The Eagles of Death Metal sign still hangs on the wall outside, and the shutter windows upstairs remain wide open. Competing news crews coalesce where the two roads intersect, a fixture that Parisians may need to get used to, in the same way they’ve had to...

With the clocks swinging forward earlier this month and daylight gone by the end of the work day, ever-present summery house music has begun to lose some of its topical appeal. As setting changes, so too does inspiration.

Enter the sound of winter: downtempo. With roots in ambient, drum and bass genres, downtempo is a more calming style of music. Conceptually, it is comparable to productions by Diversa and Explosions in the Sky.

The latest great downtempo track to grace our Soundcloud feeds, “Wonder”, comes from San Antonio artist Ashton Davila. Formerly of the name Audile, Davila now goes by the pseudonym Finding...

Fans of future-r’n’b, may I have your attention please? Today I want to introduce you a new artist hailing from Inala, Australia. His moniker is Majella and his latest single ‘ On ‘ is something that you can’t miss, especially if you are in love with artists like Jai Paul or Ben Khan. Warped guitars riffs, sparkling synths, sick vocals and an irresistible funky vibes. We’re not talking about a technically perfect song, but there are interesting ideas on it and glimpses of an artist with great potential and an impressive melodic sensibility.

Brick & Stone // Ben Lam 

In the same way that Ben Khan’s music evokes images of camping out in the woods or stalking through a wild savanna on a hunt, Ben Lam’s music paints an image of a setting - one best described in the song title. Brick & Stone is a foray into a clean Bauhaus arena, all steady electronica synths and experimental drum machine sounds - both 808s and organic ones. A switch from his usual job as a music composer for commercials, and his previous release...
