Confessions of a Dangerous Mind – Logic

If nothing else, Logic is a storyteller. If you missed Supermarket, the 2019 novel he authored—or its accompanying soundtrack album—you’d still understand this by the range of characters the MC will embody over the course of an album. He cycles through perspectives so frequently on Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, the official follow-up to 2018’s YSIV, that it can be difficult to discern whether he is telling his own truth or that of one of his characters. He talks frequently of the lifestyle a successful rap career has afforded him (“Pardon My Ego,” “Icy,” “Still Ballin”), but also takes time to lambaste those lusting after fame (“Wannabe,” “clickbait”) and the facets of popular hip-hop culture he’s subverted (“Cocaine,” “Don’t Be Afraid to Be Different”). The guest list is by and large heavy hitters of rap (Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa, G-Eazy, Will Smith), and Logic manages to accommodate all of their varied personas with bars that maintain the vibes while also preserving his reputation as a proud rap technician. There are of course the classic, earnestly aspirational Logic-isms—“Put your ego on the shelf and remember, love yourself,” he says on the title track—but nowhere does the MC sound more comfortable than […]

YouTube and Google’s Music Streaming Services Top 15 Million Subscribers: Report

Spotify claims 100 million paid subscribers, Apple Music reportedly has more than 50 million, Amazon around 30 million, and according to a new report in Bloomberg, Google comes in fourth place at 15 million paid and promotional trial users of its YouTube Music and Google Play services. According to sources who spoke to the Wall Street Journal for an article published on Wednesday (May 8), the service has been struggling to recruit new subscribers. Google’s head of music communications, Marni Greenberg, told Billboard that “YouTube aggressively disputes the WSJ report stating YouTube Music subscription growth has plateaued, countering that healthy subscription growth continued through Q1 of this year.” Though a spokesperson for YouTube declined to specify subscription numbers to Bloomberg, Greenberg confirmed to Billboard that YouTube Music and Premium-paid subscribers had grown 60 percent between March 2018 and March 2019. Subscribers to YouTube Music Premium can access licensed music and user-generated music content ad-free for $9.99 per month, while YouTube Premium expands those offerings to all YouTube content for $11.99 per month. When YouTube’s premium music service launched across the U.S., Canada, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and several European countries around the world almost exactly a year ago, the initiative looked promising for the world’s biggest video hub, which had […]

Waze App for iOS Gains Pandora Music Streaming Support

Google-owned mapping app Waze has been updated with support for Pandora music streaming, as revealed in a blog post on the Pandora website. The update means Pandora listeners on both iOS and Android can stream songs directly from within the Waze app using its embedded audio player, allowing drivers to navigate and listen to their music without leaving the app. The integration also works both ways, so once users connect Pandora and Waze on their device, the next Waze navigational direction also appears within the official Pandora app. To connect the two apps, simply click the music icon on the top right corner of the Waze app interface, select the Pandora icon, and start streaming your music.
