The Grammys are this weekend — Sunday at 7:30PM EST on your local CBS affiliate, to be exact — and as always, we’re (almost certainly naïvely) hoping they won’t suck this time. They probably will; they always do. Yet thanks to a somewhat promising slate of nominees in the major categories, a similarly half-decent … More »
Jay Rock took it easy and stuck to features after his motorcycle accident in 2016. But last month he returned to the spotlight at Top Dawg Entertainment’s annual Christmas concert, and today he helms “King’s Dead,” a new track featuring Future, TDE counterpart Kendrick … More »
In this space in past years, I’ve usually written about which music-video directors had the best years. It’s a variation of the auteur theory, as visionaries like Nabil and Hiro Murai have used artists as vehicles for their ideas and approaches. This year, though, it feels like the artists themselves who are driving things, and … More »
Mike WiLL Made-It has teamed up with Compton rapper YG for a new track called “Heart Of A Lion,” inspired by Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller’s heartbeat during training and designed to soundtrack an ad for Adidas’ new Z.N.E. Pulse apparel collection. “I’ve always been a fan of adidas and how they … More »
The young Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier makes a frantic, claustrophobic form of rap music. So it’s cool that the people at Red Bull have teamed him up with the hitmaking Atlanta super-producer Mike Will Made-It, possibly bringing out Mike Will’s backpacker side in the process. “Nobody’s Watching,” the new track that Cartier and Mike Will … More »
“Perplexing Pegasus” is a great title for a Rae Sremmurd song, and now it’s the title of an actual Rae Sremmurd song. On the heels of Swae Lee’s recent hit “Unforgettable,” the brothers Sremm have shared the first taste of the upcoming SremmLife 3. “Perplexing Pegasus” was produced by WiLL Made It, and … More »
Mike WiLL Made-It has shared a video for “Perfect Pint,” a track off of his most recent album Ransom 2 that features Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, and Rae Sremmurd.

In anticipation of Lady Gaga’s halftime performance at this Sunday’s Superbowl, Billboard reached out to several of music’s most notable figures to ask their favorite and most memorable halftime shows from history. From Migos to The Chainsmokers to Mike Will Made It, the music industry’s most recognizable names chimed in to give their best Superbowl throwbacks just in time for this weekend’s game.
Andra Day, Mario and The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall said that, in their opinion, the best halftime show ever was performed by the late Michael Jackson during Superbowl XXVII. Even though Jackson was his favorite, Alex Pall said that from now on, Bruno Mars and Beyonce should take over halftime shows.
“We still don’t know how he teleported around the stadium like he did but it was the most awesome thing ever. But since Michael is gone, we need to just let Beyonce and Bruno do every Super Bowl henceforth, no discussion. I’m pretty sure the entire world would get on board with this plan.”
Jeezy was in agreement with Pall, as he cast his vote for Bruno Mars’ Superbowl XLVIII show. “I like that guy, man. We should get in the studio — I have to hit him up.”
Migos’ Quavo said that Janet Jackson’s Superbowl XXXVIII show was the most memorable, while Chase Bryant chose The Rolling Stones and their Superbowl XL performance.
Finally, Mike Will Made It chose Beyonce as his favorite halftime performer, citing her iconic Superbowl 50 showcase.
