Before everyone gets too excited, I’m obligated to tell all of you that this is not an actual song. The song will come at some point in the next 5 days, and expect it to be on FNT within 7 seconds of its release. This brief video is a small look into Justin Timberlake’s musical mind. This dude has been crazy busy, juggling acting, music, and reviving washed up social media websites. Good to hear how much of perfectionist he is, which gives me hope that his album(rumored to be produced by Timberland), will be nothing less than the best. Check out the black and white minute video above and be on the lookout for a J-Tim drop on SUNDAY.
Also, for the sake of news, Destiny’s Child also announced that they will be releasing a new song to add to their career compilation, “Love Songs.” The track will be produced by Virginia native Pharrell and will feature the last 3 members of DC, the trio of Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Looks like 2013 is the year of the comeback. Be on the lookout for that release on January 29th.

If you’re among the dwindling percentage of the population that considers the Grammys to be a relevant barometer of today’s music scene, this was probably an exciting morning for you. Nominations for the 2013 awards (where we honor songs from 2012; yes, it’s all terribly confusing) have arrived — and in true Grammys fashion, there are some absolute curveballs thrown into an otherwise dull and predictable mix. Chief among them:
1. No nominations for Bieber. Cue mass Belieber outrage. God willing, however, the Biebs will still get tapped to perform, and in doing so will treat us to yet another glorious display of those drop crotch Hammer-pant legging things he so favors.
2. “Levels” was apparently released after October 2, 2011 and thus qualifies for a nomination.
3. Al Walser.
Since we’re assuming that this is the first you’re hearing of Al, we’ve prepared this handy guide to get you up to speed with the man of the hour. Check out the high budget marvel that is the above video, and then join us after the jump.

To live in D.C. is to get some of the very best electronic music acts brought to your front door.
Yes, I realize that some of you may be raising your eyebrows right now (looking at you, New York), but trust me. We’re quietly killing it down here, and it’s all thanks to a little outfit called Panorama Productions, the brains and brawn behind promotion company Club Glow, which has been connecting the nation’s capital with the genre’s biggest names since 1999. This Saturday, things are going to get even more serious: Club Glow will preside over the launch of D.C.’s first EDM venue, Echostage, a roughly 4000-capacity space with an equally massive sound system that will host huge billings every week. For district area dance fans, this is literally monumental. Club Glow has been operating primarily out of Josephine and Fur Nightclub for the past few years, and the recent explosion of dance music has made the need for a bigger and better venue that much more urgent.
The Echostage launch party kicks off this Saturday with Sander Van Doorn and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and the calendar shows no signs of slowing down; Dada Life, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Dirty South, and Tiesto are already lined up, and we’re still in the very early days. If you live in the Midatlantic and are starved of that 128 bpm fix, head over to Echostage’s website and Facebook page and scope the details — because this is about to be big.

UPDATE: Before I even had a chance to post the track, SoundCloud informed me the new record was copyrighted. With some further investigation, I discovered the track leaked and there is some controversy behind how and why the track hit the blogs. If you watch the video above, Riz explains how the record came about and how his relationship with Drizzy’s team has since gone sour. If the claims in this video are truthful and the facts are how they appear, I have a new found respect for Riz as an artist. Emerging into the game is not easy. Whether you’re digging through couches for nickels and dimes or have trust fund labels at your disposal, you still have to put in the work. From what I have gathered, Drake’s label took advantage of a young artist and failed to hold up their end of the agreement.
Whether or not this track was purposely released (Riz say’s it wasn’t), and whether Drake’s manager is riding around hanging a $30,000 wrist gem out the window, people have now heard the track and know the name Riz. Publicity stunt? Some may see it that way. It’s all gravy until we heard more from Riz and can evaluate him more as an artist. Be on the lookout for new (legitimate) music coming soon!
**NY hip-hop artist, Riz, is breaking new grounds with his most recent single featuring Drake, which will be featured on his debut album, The Blindside. Until now, I’ve never heard of this cat, but with nearly 60,000 Twitter followers , it’s evident he’s been doing several things right for a fair amount of time now. Although some of that fan base could be due to the fact he’s worked with industry bosses such as Whoo Kid, Mr. Thanksgiving aka DJ Drama, Lloyd Banks, Yo Gotti, Trey Songz & more, he holds his own on this new track. Produced by 40, Drake kicks off the song with some relationship rhymes and Riz follows with some emotional lyrics we can all relate to. **
