Lollapalooza just revealed its 2015 lineup, and this year Chicago’s top music festival will feature headlining performances from Paul McCartney, Metallica, and Florence + the Machine. Festival goers can also see sets from Sam Smith, Bassnectar, The Weeknd, Alt-J, Raury, Travis Scott, Young Thug, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator and more! Although the lineup is low on top rap headliners, this year’s lineup certainly competes with 2014’s lineup, which included Outkast, Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Chance the Rapper and more.

This year Lollapalooza runs from July 31st to August 2nd, downtown at Grand Park. You definitely will not want to miss out on Lollapalooza this year and stay tuned for Lolla’s Aftershow schedule (which should release later this summer).

It was just a few years ago in 2008, as Kanye gave a memorable performance of his Late Registration track ‘Hey Mama’ after the death of Dr. West, and now the man who has boycotted the Grammys the past few years just gave them another unforgettable moment. Check out the touching performance below.

Track Review: Only One | Kanye West ft. Paul McCartney

It had been awhile since we had heard new music from Kanye West and over a year since the release of Kanye’s latest studio album Yeezus. However, to kick off the new year Kanye surprised us all by dropping a new single, one nothing like Yeezus, and the one we had all been waiting for. Last year, rumors circulated that Kanye and The Beatles legendary frontman Paul McCartney were recording together and now we know the reports were true. Kanye’s newly released ballad ‘Only One’ features Sir Paul McCartney, as Kanye sings from the perspective of his late mother, Dr. Donda West, about Kanye and his new wife and daughter. If combining the talents of one of the greatest rappers of all-time and the leader of the most influential band of all-time were not enough in itself, the track as it stands could not be more beautiful. Only time will tell, but ‘Only One’ may likely be known as one of the best songs ever recorded. Continue reading Track Review: Only One | Kanye West ft. Paul McCartney

Last year we heard the stories of the secret Kanye West and Paul McCartney track, although much about the collaboration was unknown. Now it is finally here and it was well worth the wait. Fans of Kanye tracks like ‘Hey Mama’ and ‘Roses’ will love this one as ‘Only One’ is a beautiful ballad dedicated to West’s daughter North (Nori) and one of the best songs you may ever hear. While Paul McCartney’s exact contributions on the track are unknown at this time, he is there somewhere, and if you can’t remember another time the most famous Beatle had a song with a rapper… its because it has never happened (until now).
