The Black Keys have been around for a little while, but they are beggining to break into the mainstream and public consciousness with this song, “Lonely Boy” off of their new album El Camino, that I also really like. I heard it on the radio yesterday and it surprised me at first because I’ve never heard The Black Keys on the radio. I didn’t think that music’s “powers that be” would let some real, good music on the radio. Well I was happily proven wrong. They are also on the current issue of Rolling Stone. I hope this is just the beginning of mainstream success for these talented guys. Check out the hilarious video!!!
I posted Jay-Z’s new song, “Glory”, a couple days ago. It was written for and featuring the coos of his and Beyonce’s less than 1 week old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter A.K.A. B.I.C.. Yesterday it charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 74, making Blue Ivy the youngest person ever to appear on the charts, at 5 days old!!! Congrats Blue!!! She’s already making history. I wish her continued success on the charts, but maybe next time on her own terms and with her actually singing/rapping. Below is the song again if you missed it before.
