Like any healthy teenage girl, Rebecca Black is enjoying the attention she's beginning to get from the opposite sex. Now 14, the aspiring singer is taking a different approach to her sound compared to learning the days of the week, starting with her latest flirty tune, 'Person of Interest (POI).'
Adele's 'Rumour Has It' is quite a throwback. It's a rhythmic song that starts with a military-influenced drum beat, thudding bass, some "oooohs" and Adele ripping into her ex-lover about how "she" can't love you like I do with that voice that has moved millions of copies of '21' throughout 2011.
New Found Glory give a shout-out to those who have been dumped in 'Anthem for the Unwanted,' a track from their latest release, 'Radiosurgery.' The song is emo at its core, with singer Jordan Pundik desperately clinging to an obviously misguided hope that things can still work out with his ex.
On this Tuesday's (Nov. 15) episode of 'Glee,' Matthew Morrison's Mr. Schuester and Idina Menzel's Shelby perform an odd mashup of Lady Gaga's 'You & I' mixed with Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle's '80s "he said, she said" ballad of the same exact name. In case you are like, "Eddie and Crystal who?" -- here's a brief education on 'em. They were adult contemporary singers with great voices and they scored hits as solo artists in the '80s.

Then there's Gangsta Boo, the foul-mouthed vixen from Three Six Mafia, and Eminem, the lyrical monster from Detroit. All together, the trio are lyrically explosive on this Will Power-produced piano-driven banger.
Rihanna's love affair with dubstep just won't let up. The 'Talk That Talk' songstress features a grimy dubstep breakdown in newly premiered single 'You Da One' and continues to have a love affair with British dubstep kings Chase & Status -- who helmed the upcoming bonus track 'Red Lipstick.'
