Rico Nasty Drops Debut Album ‘Nightmare Vacation’

For longtime Rico Nasty fans, today is a global holiday of sorts thanks to the release of the genreless artist’s debut studio album Nightmare Vacation.

As Nasty explained during a recent in-depth chat with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, much of this album was written and recorded during a time in her life where her personal confidence wasn’t dialed up to its usual level of 10. She attributed this to both the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and “growing up,” though the ultimate result was a fresh sense of pride in the self.

“That’s why I named it Nightmare Vacation because all the shit that I was scared of at one point, scared to do and scared to say, it just became my second nature,” Nasty told Lowe. “I want to say that shit. I don’t care if I hurt somebody’s feelings. I’m going to wear it. I don’t care if

Watch: Billie Eilish says every song on next album is different but ‘cohesive’

Dec. 3 (UPI) — Billie Eilish talked about her next album, alongside her brother and collaborator Finneas, in an interview Thursday with SiriusXM’s Alt Nation channel.

“Everything about every song is very different, but somehow cohesive, and I think that kind of the same with the last album,” Eilish said about her second studio album, which does not have a title or release date.

“We really want a project to be cohesive and make sense, but not just be a repeat and a clone of every other song,” the singer continued.

Eilish released her first album titled When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in March 2019. The bestselling release contained the single “Bad Guy.”

The 18-year-old also discussed with Alt Nation what it was like to become famous at a young age.

“I’ve definitely talked to a lot of people about this [expletive] and especially, you know,

Samia Enlists Indie Artists To Cover Her Debut Album ‘The Baby’

It’s been a few months since Samia released her thoughtful debut album The Baby. But since she can’t tour behind the release, Samia has thought up a clever way to keep fans engaged with her music. The singer tapped several of her fellow indie rock cohorts to cover all the songs on her debut release.

Vacation Forever (a.k.a. Lykke Li’s Little Brother) Has Produced a ‘Bedroom Pop’ Album for Our Housebound Times

Sometimes love’s a bitch, but heartbreak isn’t always a zero-sum game; a lover’s loss is, paradoxically, often art’s gain. Such is the case with Real Life Sux, the debut album from Vacation Forever, the solo project of Zacharias Zachrisson (a.k.a. Lykke Li’s little brother).

“It’s a song about isolation,” says the musician of the title single from his sick bed in Stockholm, where he is recovering from COVID-19. Despite being robbed of his sense of smell and taste, Zachrisson was in a good place, feeling in sync with the current state of affairs. This hasn’t always been the case: “I used to be a troubled kid,” says the 31-year-old musician, who relates that he had been bedeviled by “demons,” including long-undiagnosed ADHD. “I didn’t understand what the problem was,” explains Zachrisson. “Then I really took care of it. Now I have tools to deal with it, but back then, playing

Pornhub’s X-Rated Holiday Album ‘XXXMas’ Features ASAP Ferg

It’s officially the first day of December, which means people are getting into the holiday spirit — and so is Pornhub, apparently. The popular pornographic website is ringing in the jolly season with a new soundtrack of X-rated festive songs from some popular artists.

Pornhub unveiled their mixtape XXXMas, which is available on all major streaming services. It boasts seven tracks with titles like “Holiday Freak Sh*t,” “Ho,” “Vixen,” and “Stuff Our Stockings Santa” by rappers Young MA, Sukihana, ASAP Ferg, Rubi Rose, and more.

Surprisingly, this is not the first time Pornhub has made a holiday album. Last year was their first-ever X-rated holiday album, which featured tracks by Blac Chyna, Lil Xan, and Asian Doll. Pornhub even launched their own record label back in 2014 and has since worked with Waka Flocka Flame, Flo Rida, and many more.
