Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea join 2014 Billboard Music Awards

dick clark productions and Billboard announced today that Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea will perform at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. They join a star-studded lineup of previously announced must-see performers including 5 Seconds of Summer, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Lorde, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, OneRepublic, Pitbull and Ricky Martin. The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 18, on ABC at 8pm ET.
2014 Top New Artist finalist Ariana Grande has had a monumental year. Her single “Problem,” which she will perform at the awards show with Iggy Azalea, just earned the biggest debut of the year, selling 438,000 downloads in its first week. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 – the highest debut of the year on both charts. At 20-years old, Grande also became the youngest woman to debut with more than 400,000 downloads. “Problem” is the first single off her upcoming second album, due out in the fall. Grande’s first album, “Yours Truly,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2013 and spawned the No. 9 Billboard Hot 100 single “The Way.”
Iggy first exploded onto the underground scene in 2011 with her debut mix tape “Ignorant Art,” which brought her global attention. Since then, Iggy has delivered two top 20 singles on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart: the No. 1 hit “Fancy” and her killer underground smash “Work.” In addition to performing “Problem” with Grande, Azalea will be performing “Fancy,” which currently stands at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As it joins “Problem” (No. 3) in the top five, Azalea is the first female rapper ever to have two songs concurrently in the top five of the Hot 100 chart. Her album, “The New Classic,” is No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop & Rap Album Charts—a first for a female rapper from outside the U.S.

Beyonce’s New CD is Number 1

HollywoodNews.com: Beyonce‘s “4″ album debuts at Number 1 this week with around 300,000 copies sold. It’s a good but not great debut for “4″ considering its predecessor sold 480,000 copies a year and a half ago.
The lower number is surely an indication of how the record biz has dwindled over the same period of time. It’s also about Beyonce not having a great single from this album. On the last one, “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” she had a breakout hit with “Single Ladies.” Even the video was parodied. “4″ doesn’t have that single so far, although does have a few misses.
I have to think that Beyonce’s forceful appearance on “Good Morning America” last Friday helped her a lot. She sang live, looked like a million bucks, and really went for it. All current performers should take notes. When Beyonce is on, she is worth her weight in gold bullion. It’s instructive to note that at same time Beyonce was roaring across the “GMA” set in Central Park, rapper Pitbull was featured on the “Today” show. He wasn’t very good, and his sales actuall went down. He’s dropped from number 7 to 15.
This was a rare “Today” misstep. This Friday, country singer Blake Shelton comes to “Today,” which should be a hit. The following Friday is Chris Brown–yikes, what are they thinking? Meanwhile, Adele gets kicked to Number 2 this week; she’s still rolling deep in green. Lady Gaga drifts out of the top 10 and into oblivion.

Pauly D featured on the ‘Jersey Shore Soundtrack’

HollywoodNews.com: MTV and Universal Republic Records dropped this summer’s sonic blockbuster, the “Jersey Shore Soundtrack,” today, July 20th 2010. It’s the only place you can hear today’s hottest artists—Lil Jon, LMFAO, and Pitbull—in one continuous mix. The brand new collection of sizzling dance and pop tracks are inspired by Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D and the rest of the gang. Even if you don’t live in Jersey, you can rock to this.
Rather than simply slapping together a bunch of modern hits, Universal Republic enlisted the talents of noted producer, DJ, and remixer Jason Nevins to ensure that the “Jersey Shore Soundtrack” would play as one non-stop mix. This one-of-a-kind set of bouncin’ and bangin’ tracks definitely evokes some of the show’s most memorable moments “in the club.” “Jersey Shore’s” very own Pauly D even offered up his “Beat Dat Beat (It’s Time To)” for the propulsive playlist. Bumping continuously, there’s never a dull moment, and this mix will light up your beach party or night on the town.
Pauly D’s song isn’t the only exclusive included though. The soundtrack also features previously unreleased remixes from dance and pop trend-setters such as Paul Oakenfold (“Pump It Up”), Kid Sister Ft. Nina Sky (“Look Out Weekend”), Girlicious (“Drank”), Jersey Shore featured artist- Midi Mafia (“Last Call”) and Tiesto vs. Diplo (“Come On”). With Nevins’ deft remix alchemy, all of the songs fit snugly together for maximum audio ecstasy.
“I Like It,” the “Jersey Shore Soundtrack’s” first single from Enrique Iglesias featuring Pitbull, immediately infiltrated clubs and beaches nationwide, becoming one of the summer’s biggest “fist-pumpers”, garnering spins on over 100 radio stations and hitting both the U.S. and U.K.’s Top 10 charts.
The “Jersey Shore Soundtrack” also features a combination of number one singles (Lil Jon featuring 3OH!3’s “Hey,” David Guetta featuring Fergie’s “Getting’ Over You”) and, of course, there’s LMFAO’s “Get Crazy,” the show’s raucous theme song whose lyrics “Get crazy/Get wild/Let’s party/Get loud” always let viewers know what’s in store every installment.
The “Jersey Shore” Complete Season One Uncensored” DVD also hit stores this week.
