If you thought Taylor Swift rapping along to Kendrick Lamar alone in her car was fantastic, you ain't heard nothin' yet!

Even rap fans have to give it up to Swifty for Shake It Off. Not only is it infinitely danceable, it also goes surprisingly well with Kendrick's Backseat Freestyle.

Taylor Swift's 1989 Is Officially Platinum & She Celebrated By — Rapping To Kendrick Lamar??

| Filed under: Music MinuteTaylor SwiftKendrick LamarInstagram

taylor swift album is platinum celebrates by rapping kendrick lamar

Holy moly. Taylor Swift is having, like, the BEST week EVER and it's not even over!

Not only does everyone love 1989, because obviously, but after its first week of sales, the album is OFFICIALLY platinum!

AKA she sold 1.287 million albums!!!

However, the fact that she sold THAT many copies isn't even the most impressive thing about it all!

[ Related: Taylor Swift or Beyoncé? Who Makes More Money? ]

AH-Mazing fact number 1? 1989 is officially the biggest-selling album released in 2014! The only artist who came close (kind of) is Sam Smith's album In the Lonely Hour which sold 746,000 copies!

So, ya know, she shattered that record! But wait — there's more!

This isn't just Taylor's first million selling album in a week, her last TWO debuts, Red and Speak Now BOTH sold over a million copies in their first weeks, so this is her THIRD time going platinum in a week!

Oh, and lastly, the 1.287 million copies sold is the largest sales week for an album since June of 2002 when Eminem sold 1.322 million.

So, clearly, gurlfriend has A LOT to celebrate — which is why she took to her Instagram to post an HIGHlarious video of her rapping to Kendrick Lamar!

Ch-ch-check out the adorable badass rapping (below)!!!

| Filed under: Kendrick LamarLittle Big TownCMT Music AwardsImagine Dragons

Woah woah woah!

We've DEFINITELY seen something like this before!

Little Big Town took the stage at the CMT Music Awards tonight dressed all in white. We were wondering why they went with those getups.

But as they got to the end of their otherwise AH-Mazing performance of Day Drinking, suddenly shiz got crazy and colored paint started flying EVERYWHERE!

Cool, right??

Well sure. Except Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons basically did the exact same thing at this year's Grammys!

CLICK HERE to see for yourself!

So did Little Big Town jack this idea from them? Or do great minds think alike?

Alicia Keys Slings…Uh, Sings It's On Again In New Music Video For Amazing Spider-Man 2!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAlicia KeysComic BooksKendrick Lamar

The music video for It's On Again just hit the web, and we hope it gets stuck forever!

Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar are both fantastic in this song that will be in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequel, and this video has some pretty great (albeit all too brief) snippets from the film, plus Manhattan is turned into a nightclub-esque light show, so there's that visual feast for you to take in!

The music video even has a cameo by Pharrell, who produced the song! He's far less teary eyed than his Oprah interview, but he's still oh, so great!

So get excited for the return of Spidey and ch-ch-check out the music video (above)!!!
