It’s Weezy baby! And the rest of our list of the shittiest musicians working today.

Who is the Most Hated Music Artist Right Now? No Surprise…

The ratio of pitches we get via email vs. the ratio of PR pitches that ends up on the site is relatively small (watch us disappear off of everyone’s PR list now), but I have to say that one recent email caught my eye. It linked to the five most hated artists in music today. The process used to figure this out was pretty simple, it seems. Looks like they just did Google searches on a number of artists and measured the amount […]

Village Voice Pazz & Jop Goes Gaga Over Kanye

Music tastemakers of a certain vintage still go crazy over The Village Voice‘s annual Pazz & Jop poll. The poll asks a who’s who of music critics for their favorites in music over the previous year. The results for 2010 were published recently, and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was voted the best album of 2010 by a landslide, receiving almost double the votes of the runner-up, LCD Soundsystem’s This is Happening. Yeezy then ran roughshod over the […]

Chart Stalker!: Billboard Year-End Version

Welcome to the first of two year end editions of Chart Stalker! Why two, you ask? Simple answer-Billboard’s year-end issue comes out before the end of the actual calendar year (to allow for publication time and ad purchasing). Generally speaking, it covers the year from December 1st of the previous year to November 30th of the current year, or thereabouts. Additionally, Billboard calculates it’s rankings by using a formula based on chart position, so where an artist ends up on […]

New Release Report 11/22/10: Well, Hello Kanye

The week before Thanksgiving is typically the week that record companies bring out their big guns. There will be quite a few major records battling for chart supremacy this week, and most of them will have a 24-hour jump on the average music release, since many of the albums are being made available for sale on Monday instead of Tuesday. Here’s what you should be looking for: Kanye West “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”– Kanye’s fifth album has been met […]

2010 American Music Awards: Live Blog

The American Music Awards may have fallen to third place on the importance list behind the Grammy Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, but it’s still a pretty important show where it counts…at the cash register. It’s pretty well-watched, and lots of people that see performances or award winners end up going to their local store (or to iTunes) and picking up a single or album by someone they caught on the show. The AMAs began in 1974 as […]

Chart Stalker 11/3/10: Taylor to the Rescue!!

So much for me and my prognostication skills. When Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” album came out last week, I initially pegged the album to do a WAY more than respectable 750,000 copies in it’s first week-coming into close contention with Eminem’s “Recovery” as the biggest debut week in 2010. Well, reports immediately started flying around suggesting that Taylor would come close to the coveted million mark, and now the dust has settled for the week, and Swift scores the biggest […]

The People Speak: Eminem & Antebellum Lead the American Music Awards

Well, folks, we’re in the thick of music award show season. The MTV Video Music awards kicked things off at the beginning of September, and the season concludes at the end of January with the Grammy Award ceremony. Smack dab in the middle, we have Dick Clark’s American Music Awards: an almost 40-year old institution that prides itself on being the people’s choice. Unlike the Grammy nominees, which are chosen by a “blue-ribbon” panel of music industry professionals, AMA nominees […]

8 Minutes of Audio Greatness…& Video WTF??: Lady GaGa’s “Alejandro”

OK, I give in! For the past 18 months or so, I’ve been trying to resist Lady GaGa, but my defenses have slowly been worn down, and it has less to do with her outrageous imagery and overt sexuality than it has to do with the songs, man! There hasn’t been a pop artist in a long time who’s created so many earworms, one right after the other. While I still think some of her public shenanigans are tasteless and […]

ChartStalker 4/25/10:Special Sunday Edition

Still getting back into the swing of things after being away for most of the week. Here’s what’s going on in the world of the Billboard album charts. Last week marked the second week in 2010 when no album managed to reach the 100,000 mark in sales. Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0” notches a third non-consecutive week at the #1 position, selling another 92,000 copies. Things go into freefall from there, as the #2 album, MGMT’s sophomore effort “Congratulations” only […]
