Relient K Premiere "That's My Jam" Featuring Owl City

Just days after announcing plans to release a new album this Summer, Relient K have released a new song entitled “That’s My Jam.”

Partnering with Summer hitmaker Owl City, “That’s My Jam” harkens back to an earlier time in Relient K’s career. The introspective, somewhat folk sound of their last album has vanished and been replaced with radio-ready pop and studio magic. It’s a fun song that we’ll probably hear a lot this Summer, and that’s exactly what Relient K needs. You can stream the song below. (more…)

Carly Rae Jepsen, Adam Young Sued Over Alleged “Good Time” Theft

However, in a recent lawsuit issued by singer/songwriter Allyson Nichole Burnett, it looks like Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City‘s Adam Young will have some explaining to do to the courts for their recent summer hit, Good Time. Check out more details after the jump.

Sound And Vision: The Diminishing Returns of the No. 1 Single

No. 1 with a bullet: Ah, that once-relatively elusive and exclusive room at the top. The holy grail for the pop single, it used to be as high an honor and as highly desirable as gold and platinum albums. But what does it mean when a star as marginally talented as Katy Perry can hit No. 1 five times on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the space of one album (six times in one and a half albums, if you count Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection)? Or when Rihanna, who still hasn’t scored a chart-topping album in six tries, can do in less than six years what took Madonna a dozen (hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 one time short of a dozen)?

Does Teenage Dream have, well, a dream of ever being as iconic as Michael Jackson‘s Bad (which spawned five No. 1 hits and thus shares the record for most No. 1 singles from one album with Teenage Dream), George Michael‘s Faith (which produced four) or even Adele‘s 21 (a contemporary that launched three), none of which had to be re-released as a special expanded edition in order to pad its hit list and sales tally? For all her No. 1 singles, will any Rihanna album thus far ever be considered as landmark as Madonna’s 1983 self-titled debut through 1989’s Like a Prayer, which covered a comparable career time frame? Rihanna’s yet to even break through the double-platinum glass ceiling.

Then there’s Carly Rae Jepsen‘s Call Me Maybe, which just spent nine weeks atop Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, making it the biggest song of the summer, if not 2012. It also makes her a surefire nominee for Best New Artist at the 2013 GRAMMY Awards ceremony. She’ll face stiff-ish competition from Gotye and fun., who spent eight and six weeks at No. 1, respectively, with their respective singles, Somebody That I Used to Know and We Are Young. (more…)
