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

| Filed under: Music MinuteUsherAdeleTaylor SwiftBusiness Blitz

no title

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!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersUsherRobin ThickeJustin Bieber

no title

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.

The Golden State Warriors Might've Won The NBA Championship, But National Anthem Singer Marlana VanHoose — Who's Blind And Has Cerebral Palsy — Was The Real Star!

| Filed under: InspirationUsherHeartwarmingNBA

We're blown away!

And no, we're not talking about the performance the Golden State Warriors put on to win the NBA championship!

Last night, ahead of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, we got a different kind of special treat for the National Anthem.

No, it didn't come from the likes of a traditional superstar performer like Rascal Flatts or Usher, who opened at previous games, but instead the incredible performance (below) came from a girl by the name of Marlana VanHoose.

Marlana is a different kind of star because the 19-year-old Kentucky native is not only blind but also has cerebral palsy. A few weeks after she was born, doctors did not expect her to live past one year.

Instead, Marlana stands as a shining example of fighting for survival and beating the odds! Not only that, but she's got a helluva voice too!

Ch-ch-check out her AH-Mazing performance as she sings the National Anthem (below)!

CeeLo Will Be Back On The Voice… But It’s Not Exactly What You Think!

| Filed under: TV NewsGwen StefaniUsherCeeLo GreenThe VoiceReality TV

no title

Does that make him crazy? Probably.

We never thought we'd see the day when CeeLo Green would return to The Voice, but the singer will be back in action on April 27th.

However, the former judge won't be alone. Usher and Gwen Stefani will join him at their old stomping grounds for a one-time coaching reunion, where they will advise the remaining eight finalists.

[ Related: Christina Aguilera's Country Ballad From Nashville Has Surfaced Online! ]

We're a little surprised that CeeLo will be back on NBC's hit competition show, since his controversial rape comments last year got him in some serious hot water.

Not to mention his resignation from the show seemed pretty final.

But who knows?
