Last week, we had Youtube sensation and rising pop star Kreayshawn at the BUST offices for an interview for the upcoming issue October/November issue! Just over a month ago the 21 year old Oakland based rapper posted the video for her "Gucci Gucci" song on Youtube, and since then her video has had more the three million views. Boom!

The darkly dramatic video for the most recent single on Anna Calvi’s self-titled debut album was released today on Pitchfork. Watch it here.  Does this song remind anyone else of Bruce Springsteen?
