Hump Day Music Truth

1.Carrie Underwood spills all in Cosmopolitan….

“Smoke Break” songstress Carrie Underwood is breaking music tea mugs in the December issue of Cosmopolitan, spilling about her married life and how she feels women in country music deserve more recognition. 

“When I go to vote for the Country Music Awards, I have to write in names — I can think of, like, three who are really active,” Underwood told Cosmo. “Women have to work harder to get half the recognition. I am one of the lucky ones.”

Ms. Underwood also shares that she’s still in wedded bliss with her husband, NHL star Mike Fisher. She adds, “Everyone is getting divorced. They’re dropping like flies! But we are good. It helped that we were both established before we were married. Neither of us could be like, ‘I didn’t know it would be like this!’”

Save the date–the December issue of Cosmo hits newsstands on Nov. 10.

2.Britney Spears is definitely working on her new album….

Could 2016 be the year of both Britney and Adele? 

Last night after much speculation, Britney Spears confirmed that she’s moving forward with a new album, in her own special way, of course.

Ms. Spears, who’s in the midst of her red-hot Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas, has been dropping glittery goose eggs recently that her ninth (!) album is the works, recently sharing a captionless photo of herself in the studio and also sharing a tweet, revealing that she’d finished recording vocals on one song along with using the cryptic hashtag “B9,” which we know certainly refers to the new set. 

3. There are really no words to describe this

No words. Just watch. It’s everything you’re hoping it is. 

4.The same can also be said for this DNCE video…

It’s also everything you’re hoping it would be. 

5.Eminem is keeping on to prove he’s a lyrical Genius….

Hot off the music truth press, Billboard is reporting that Eminem will be  investing in lyrics and annotation site, Genius, in a new partnership with the “Without Me” rapper and Shady Records. 

Joining an already A-list star roster of investors including Nas and Pharrell, Mr. Mathers will continue serving up his newly pressed tracks on the site. Genius will also act as the official lyrics engine for and all of Shady Records’ online contingencies. 

“Coming up we would always obsess over the lyrics from our favorite MCs. Picking everything apart, trying to get into their heads,” Eminem said in his official statement. “I still do that today and Genius helps to make it a worldwide conversation. Pretty amazing to me.”

Founded in 2009 by Tom Lehman and Ilan Zechory, Brooklyn, NY based Genius continues to own its reputation in being the world’s largest source of song lyrics and crowd-pleasing music knowledge. Earlier this year, Genius tapped Marshall to provide some of his biggest hits including “Rap God,” “Stan” and “Lose Yourself,” alongside classic tracks by the Notorious B.I.G. and 50 Cent. 

With an out-of-this-world monthly reach of more than 40 million customers, Genius has expanded since its humble beginnings as Rap Genius, which was a website dedicated to annotating hip-hop lyrics. The site has also garnered nearly $60 million in investments since 2011, with that figure only expected to grow now that Em is on board.
