This Week In Music: Trump Takes On Beyonce, Bruce And Prince, While Hong Kong Gets Its Own Song
Music evokes many emotions in people, and never was that more evident than in this week’s music news.

In Hong Kong, the street protests have adopted a new anthem to fuel passions, while on the domestic front, President Donald Trump managed to get into a dust-up with the Prince estate. He also found time to put down “little” Bruce Springsteen and let the world know that he didn’t need any music superstars to appear at his rallies in order to draw a crowd (perhaps disappointing Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith).

This week in music:

The Prince And The President: Prince’s estate was miffed at President Donald Trump this week for playing Purple Rain at his Minneapolis rally. Trump’s attorneys previously promised that they would not use Prince’s music in connection with the campaign activities. It was unlikely that Trump had anything to do with the music selection at the rally,

CBS' All Rise: Grade the Premiere!

Court is now in session at CBS with the series premiere of All Rise, which has such a Shondaland vibe that I went to IMDb to check creator Greg Spottiswood’s resume. (For what it’s worth, he didn’t work on any Shonda Rhimes shows; his credits instead include the Canadian dramas Remedy and King.)

The new legal drama introduces us to the caring Lola Carmichael (Luke Cage‘s Simone Missick), who is a newly appointed L.A. county superior court judge. Her circle of friends includes District Attorney Mark Callan (Hart of Dixie‘s Wilson Bethel), who unsuccessfully

Hear Alesso, Tini’s Lovelorn Collaboration ‘Sad Song’

Hear Alesso, Tini’s Lovelorn Collaboration ‘Sad Song’
Swedish DJ and producer Alesso has teamed with rising Argentine singer Tini for a new bad love anthem, “Sad Song.”

The track finds Alesso crafting a compelling club groove that bumps at a steady pace with crisp snares, hand claps and airy synths that buoy Tini’s vocals. “Sad Song,” as its title suggests, is just that, though the lyrics and Tini’s performance capture a more nuanced kind of woe that comes in the throes of a love where one partner is giving more than the other: “You’re

Hear Chance McCoy’s New Solo Song ‘No One Loves You (The Way That I Do)’

Chance McCoy of Old Crow Medicine Show channels youthful wanderlust in the idyllic folk meditation “No One Loves You (The Way That I Do),” a new song from a forthcoming, still-to-be-announced solo project from the singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist.

McCoy, a skilled fiddler, guitarist and banjo player, self-produced the atmospheric, concise tune, adding a gently pulsing drum track to meandering layers of strings. McCoy, who joined Old Crow in 2012 and earned a Grammy Award for his work on the band’s 2014 album Remedy, was inspired by a solitary journey he took to

Liv Tyler Being Eyed For Lead Role In MGM’s Child’s Play Remake

The Devil Doll is coming out to play… again.

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, MGM has tapped Norwegian filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) to spearhead a remake of the original Child’s Play movie from 1988.

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, the producers behind New Line’s incredibly successful It, are both on board, and it’s been explained that this project is totally unrelated to the recently-announced TV series, which is in development from Don Mancini and fellow Chucky architect, David Kirschner.

MGM’s plan is to fast-track its “contemporary reboot,” which has a script from Tyler Burton Smith, whose credits include Kung Fury and Remedy’s deeply cinematic video game, Quantum Break. And that’s apparently still the case, as casting has already begun, with That Hashtag Show alleging that The Incredible Hulk actress Liv Tyler has been offered the role of Andy’s mom, Karen.

MGM Poised To Remake Original Child’s Play Movie With It Producers

The Devil Doll is coming out to play… again.

Sources close to Collider allege that MGM has tapped Norwegian filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) to spearhead a remake of the original Child’s Play movie from ’88.

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, the producers behind New Line’s wildly successful It, have climbed aboard, and we understand this project is totally unrelated to the recently-announced TV series in development from Don Mancini and fellow Chucky architect, David Kirschner.

Word is MGM plans to fast-track its “contemporary reboot,” which has a script from Tyler Burton Smith, whose credits include Kung Fury and Remedy’s deeply cinematic video game, Quantum Break. That means the modern-day Child’s Play will reportedly involve a “group of kids and a technologically-advanced doll that enters their world.” So, like Stranger Things, only with a wicked Devil Doll instead of the Shadow Monster? Whatever the case, filming is due
