Leona Lewis Is ALIVE!! In New Song!

FINALLY! Some nouveau delights from British reality-show pop sensation Leona Lewis!!

We've been aching for some Leo lusciousness for an AGE, and thankfully girl delivered a dub-steppy, trans-poppy track in the form of Come Alive at London's Hackney Weekend 2012!

It's VERY different from Leo's former, softer sounds, but she's surfing the club-pop wave and we're always down to hang-ten on some slick beats.

Awaken from your deathly slumber with Leona (above)!

And we hope hope HOPE her forthcoming album Glassheart WILL debut on November 26th like it's supposed to…

Don't shatter our glass hearts, Leona!

Florence + The Machine Hackney Weekend Magic!

Among the sheer awesomeness present at Hackney Weekend 2012, Florence + The Machine carved out their own magnificent hovel and invited thousands of screaming Brits inside for a live, musical tryst.

And while Florence Welch's voice is super pitchy and loves a good quiver, you cannot deny the beauty within each masterful tune!

Press play (above) and place yourself in the front row of Florence's magical set!

Filed under: RihannaAnglophiliaMusic MinuteJay ZPerezTV

There are hardly WORDS to express the ferocity of Rihanna's Hackney Weekend 2012 set…

So we present to you the ENTIRE hour+ performance for your hungry eyes to munch on!

Enjoy Rihanna as she gyrates her Egyptian-themed pelvis to so many hits (above)! And keep with it for a Jay-Z delight around the 52:00 mark!

Girl is vocally en pointe and charming- if not a little stoned - we suggest watching RIGHT at sunset, windows open, joint in hand, then you can pretend like you were in that London park, on a perfect Summer's eve, watching Riri for REALZ!

Azealia Banks Beats It For The Brits!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinutePerezTV

Girrrl is our newest obsession!

Azealia Banks brought her succulent, Liquorice lips to BBC's INSANE Hackney Music fest this past weekend and proved she is QUEEN of salacious rap-pop!

The NYC-based rising rap star finished off a jumping, raucous set with her slick mega-hit 212 (above), but better showed off her speedy-rap chops in the Diplo-mastered F*ck Up The Fun (below).

Azealia also performed a number of nastay tracks off of her JUST released EP 1991.

Gaaa! We need MORE Azealia! She spits KILLER rhymes, and lacks the over-produced tinge we see on SO MANY female artists these days…

LOVES IT!!

Filed under: RihannaAnglophiliaMusic MinuteBeyonceKanye WestM.I.A.Jay ZPerezTV

Uh, uh, OH YEA!

If we only had one wish this past weekend it would be to jam with the plethora of mega-mucisians at BBC's Hackney Weekend 2012 in London!!!

SO MANY fantabulous acts, but no one quite killed it like Jay-Z… ft. Rihanna. AND KANYE. OH YEA, and M.I.A.

Basically, ’twas the music fest to end all music festivals!! Appropriatly so, seeing as the world is ending in December anyway… Ha!

The Hackney crowd was more than pleasantly surprised when Jay brought fellow throne-sitter Kanye West on stage to perform almost 30 mins of punchy, rapping goodness… even Beyonce gets into some moshing action around the 20:30 mark (above)!

Jay also brought out the Mistress of melodious political SWAG M.I.A. for a rendition of Swagga Like Us (below), and managed to finagle Princess Rihanna to lend her vocals to Run This Town (below).

In addition to alll the sick cameos, Jay solo-slayed classics like 99 Problems, Girls, girls, girls and SO MUCH MORE…

Seriously. Best set ever?! We say HELLLLL MOTHA F*CKIN YEA!
