I LOVE when real talent links up! Are you guys ready for a song written by Skateboard P, Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar and Hans Zimmer? Well, one has made it’s way on ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2” soundtrack.
Pharrell produced “It’s On Again” and it will be one of the star tracks on the “Spider-Man 2” soundtrack. A. Keys and K. Dot provide the vocals which close out the film! It’s an upbeat song & Pharrell says that the artists “take the song to a whole new level.”
"I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer," Keys said in a release. "This is the next chapter in the ‘Spider-Man’ legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story — and most importantly — the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.”
The soundtrack is scheduled for an April 22nd release date and the film hits U.S. theaters May 2nd.

Salute to these guys! According to Billboard, ‘the pop-rock trio [fun.] is launching a campaign to raise money for at-risk LGBT youth in Detroit.’ They plan to raise $250,000 to build a community health center for the Ruth Ellis Center, which provides housing, meals, clothing and medical services for LGBT youth in need.
Funds will be raised through the organization: The Ally Coalition. The guys started this organization with Jack Antonoff’s sister, designer Rachel Antonoff.
Support the cause if you can! If you can’t send funds, spreading the word is just as helpful! xo ROZ-O!
That song & video makes me SO happy (no pun) when it comes on! I’m pretty sure it does that for everyone else. For that alone, it should win! It’s uplifting! And that Beats Pill video, have you seen it? Loves it!

The worldwide human rights organization Amesty International will host an arena-sized benefit to raise money and awareness for it’s cause. The Bringing Human Rights Home concert series is making a return after it’s 1986-1998 run which featured Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Joan Baez and others. Their goal is to ‘bring back the concerts to show a new generation of activists how to stand up for justice at home and abroad-whether it is fighting for the right to voice dissent peacefully on social networks or in the streets protecting rights of women and girls, or standing in solidarity with individuals persecuted for who they are or what they believe”
Salute! Roz-O will be On-The-Go & in attendance! It’s for a great cause, you should too! xx

LYRIC VIDEO: HUMAN - CHRISTINA PERRI (OFFICIAL AUDIO)
I’m still in love with her breakthrough single “Jar Of Hearts” FYI! I’m happy that she’s back with new music, which was released digitally Monday, November 18th. Christina Perri’s sophomore album’s looking at a Spring 2014 release. Press play, enjoy the alt-pop tunes! xo ROZ-O!
When Eminem dropped the classic track 'Stan' people were asking who’s that on the hook? I already knew that it was British singer Dido! I was fan of hers since her debut album ‘No Angel’, which gave us the hit "Thank You" - the song famously sampled on Eminem’s single 'Stan' and get this, she now has a son named Stanley. Ha! Dido recently sat down with Billboard to discuss her ‘Greatest Hits’ album dropping November 25th and she speaks of performing with Mr. Mathers. Click the title for the full interview! xo ROZ-O!
Did you ever think you would have a greatest hits album?
No! (Laughs) It was a bit of a surprise. I was in the middle of making a record and my friend came and said, “Do you want to do a greatest hits?” And I was like, “Really?” It probably always seems crazy to do a greatest hits. I had so much fun putting it together… it’s like a proper celebration of the last 15 years. It’s not something you think will happen.
This summer, you performed “Stan” onstage with Eminem at Leeds Fest. What’s it like performing that with him after all these years?
It was brilliant, a lot of fun. The crowd reaction was amazing. A real buzz. It was a really fun thing to do.
Congratulations Eminem! Well Deserved! Marshall Mathers LP 2 is Em’s seventh #1 album, all consecutive and all debuts at #1 and it “posts a larger debut than his last album, 2010’s "Recovery", which started with 741,000.” Still quite impressive eh?! Shout out to everyone who supported by buying the album. Give yourselves a pat on the back!
"I remember it felt like shit was just flying by me and nothing really seemed real," Eminem says, recalling the media frenzy of his early years, during which he tangled with, among others, GLAAD and Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dick Cheney. "When I was making records, I would just take my frustrations out about that. I mean, fuck, here it is 2013 and I still don’t really have a total grasp on it yet and understand it."
"I kind of just make what I make and however people take to it is how they take to it, or don’t take to it," he says. "I knew that it would have to match a certain intensity and vibe and feel in order to call it [The Marshall Mathers LP 2]. I want to say I’m confident that I’ve done that, but it’s up to the listener to decide."
MMLP2 Available Tuesday, November 5th! BUY it! xo ROZ-O!
