Taylor Swift's 1989 Is The Fastest Selling Album Of The Last Decade! That Makes Her The First Artist To Go Quintuple Platinum Since…

Once again, Taylor Swift has the record with the record!

1989 is now officially the fastest-selling album in over 10 years!

The album that gave us Shake It Off, Blank Space, and our fave Style has sold more that 5 million units in just 36 weeks!

That's the quickest since Usher went quintuple platinum in 19 weeks with 2004's Confessions.

All the more impressive considering people are buying full albums less and less. 1989 is actually the first record since Adele's 21 to even reach 5 million (though it took Adele 42 weeks).

And to think, Taylor's record label actually didn't want her to release it!

We're Feeling Good About Lauryn Hill's Nina Simone Cover! Listen HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteUsherLauryn HillMary J. BligeCommon

Listen to Lauryn Hill flawlessly cover Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.

Nina Simone's classic song Feeling Good has been covered too many times to count.

Whether by hopeful reality competition contestants, or celebs who've already made names for themselves, many of these renditions have been great. But none of them have ever really been able to capture the same tone and feeling of the late great singer.

That is, until Lauryn Hill.

[ Video: Country Star Canaan Smith Surprises This Couple! ]

The 40-year-old musician covered the iconic track as a part of an upcoming tribute album entitled Nina Revisited.

Her voice just glides effortlessly over the notes, but the emotion in her words is totally tangible! And when she lets loose with the riffs, you can really tell the feeling is genuine, rather than just an effort to sound pretty or precisely mimic Nina's notes.

Ch-ch-check out her FAB version (below)!

Justin Bieber & Usher Are Still Battling A $10 Million Lawsuit Over Somebody To Love — A New Panel Of Judges Ruled This!

History repeats itself… and by "history," we mean formulaic pop music!

It looks like Justin Bieber and Usher could need to give Robin Thicke's lawyers a call — because the duo might be in a Blurred Lines style legal battle!

On Thursday, Bieber and his mentor were reunited over a $10 million copyright infringement lawsuit over their 2010 song Somebody to Love!

The lawsuit was filed in 2013 by artist Devin Copeland (who performs by the name De Rico) and songwriter Mareio Oberton, who claimed they wrote the track back in 2008. Allegedly, Usher heard Copeland's music and showed interest in working with him, but then lifted the song with Bieber afterwards, resulting in a new track.
