Street harassment reversal videos are killing the viral video market, and Miss Eaves is on trend.  If you’re not already a fan of her subject-specific raps, the time is now. Certainly her 2012 series (NPR, Snuggies) was clever, clip-art graphics and all. But her new single “Aye Girl” is pretty fucking cute. Charming Brooklyn gals turn the tables on a squeamish P. Kilmure (also the producer). As for Miss Eaves? Her song is pretty seamless, with beauties such as, “Jerk it pervert, it’s not gonna work.” And her avocado earrings close the deal. Read More
Science has spoken, and your adolescent tastes have been affirmed — the Spice Girls' “Wannabe” is the catchiest song in the UK.  “Wannabe,” released in 1996 on the album Spice, was quickly the best selling single by a female group.    The experiment was conducted by Hooked On Music, a research campaign with the Manchester Science Festival and the University of Amsterdam. Lou Bega’s “Mambo Number Five” came in second, and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” was third. Read More
I’ve always believed artists are born to be just that, artists. It’s important to have training, a way to work, and whatever tools of the trade one needs. However, when it comes to talent, either you came in with it or you didn’t. Someone who definitely came in with it is Nika Rosa Danilova, aka Zola Jesus.  Nika is one of the reigning ‘Dark Ladies’ of music. Read More
  There are many different ways to express and get hyped about sexuality. Knowing yourself, knowing your body, and knowing what feels gooooood is part of growing up, and it can be a never-ending process. Along with that process is the music you can jive to that uplifts you, boosts your confidence, and helps you realize, "oh, yeah, I like that." Whether you like your music fast, slow, dirty, or just beautifully honest, there is a bit of all of that here. Thanks to wonderful BUSTies sharing their favorite sexual confidence songs that they can get down with, you can rock on with them, too. Read More
What’s better than a playlist featuring Beyoncé, En Vogue AND Dolly Parton?! A playlist that inspires you to get out and vote this Nov. 4. Duh. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund recently collaborated with the awesome DJ-ing forces that are MC Lyte and Samantha Ronson to create the first-ever Women are Watching Spotify Playlist! The playlist, which features a unique variety of diverse ladies, aims to inspire individuals to get off their seats and dance (and by dance I mean VOTE, although dancing is cool too). Read More

  OK Go debuted a new video yesterday and it is just what should be expected of their dynamic and creative personalities. The four-some who formed in Chicago, shortly after moved to L.A., and have since created memorable videos and concert tours are gaining momentum again with their own record label Paracadute, and their new album Hungry Ghosts and especially for their new skillful video, “I Won’t Let You Down.

“Have you ever been to Paris? Neither have I. Neither have I.” Those are still the lyrics to Lizzo’s LIZZOBANGERS track, “Paris,” but they are not longer true for the rapper, whose debut album was named #1 Album of 2013 by us here at BUST. With roots in Houston and Detroit, but now based in the Twin Cities, Lizzo told Jay-Z’s Life+Times that when she wrote the song, she had never in fact been to Paris. Read More
Over the summer, Cherry Glazerr played a show at Baby’s All Right and I fell in love with them. The band looked young but I didn’t think anything of it until I spoke to lead, Clementine Creevy after the show, and learned they were still in high school! I was in awe and it made me love the band even more. Creevy is only seventeen, drummer Hannah Uribe, seventeen, and bassist Sean Redman is twenty-three. Creevy admitted, “We aren’t going to tour much this fall because we have school. Read More
