When it comes to Eminem’s most recent single “Monster”, everyone is used to the sultry voice of Barbadian songstress Rihanna on the chorus. The track was originally crafted as “Monsters Under Our Bed” by music producer Frequency and singer Bebe Rexha, who has stated that the song comes from when she was in a dark head space. “Figuring out where you are in life and trying to make shit work out for yourself — it gets to you. You get super down on yourself. I was just trying to get out of a depressed phase. That’s where the song came from.” the 24 year old recollects on writing the track that would become one of the most popular collaborations between Rihanna and Eminem to date. The song found it’s way onto Eminem’s latest studio album “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” when Frequency played it for Shady Records music executive Riggs Morales, who after hearing the track was blown away and wanted to pull some verses off of the track to send to Eminem because he thought it would be incredible on his upcoming project. Rexha’s vocals were originally left on the chorus, but later replaced with Rihanna’s vocals in the final version of the track. Nonetheless, the song doesn’t lose out on Rexha’s vocals or the ideas that she had with it, as it still maintains the prime idea of the monsters that live around us and that can live inside us.

IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER: Lissie

Female artist Lissie, has been selected as U.S. Hard Rock’s international artist ambassador for IMAGINE THERES NO HUNGER. This is a campaign to fight childhood hunger and poverty through agriculture education and nutritional feeding programs.

As a part of the event, there will be a food drive. Fans can help by bringing a $10 retail value or a $10 donation to the show to fight hunger. Any fans who donate will receive an Imagine backpack and bracelet in return for their donation. 

For a little background information on Lissie, she grew up in Rock Island, Illinois and currently resides in California, but Illinois has had a huge say in shaping her writing and music. She writes songs about love and life, and songs people can relate to, especially while hearing them live. She has a strong fierce voice that has been compared to early Fleetwood Mac. Her songs are catchy yet meaningful.

To help, you can go to her shows and donate. Even if this isn’t an artist you haven’t previously heard of, its always good to try and experience new music, and a new scene. With this event, you are supporting her music while donating to an important charity. 

"Do you guys wanna dance with me?" It would be hard to not want to after witnessing hip-hop maven Sirah’s performance this past wednesday at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale as part of the Twenty One Pilots tour. As the opener of the night, there’s no argument that her bubbly performance set a standard of jubilance and excitement that followed through with the crowd for the rest of the night. If there were a divide between fans who are seasoned with her music, versus those who were getting their first taste, it wasn’t evident as every single body in the crowd was moving along with Sirah in excitement, matching her high energy that she brought to the stage that night. She even included the security, who played a part in her performance by being so kind enough to carry the tiny performer on his shoulders as she belted out bumping lyrics to the enthusiastic crowd. Although high energy was the trend during her twenty five minute set that night, she did slow it down for a bit, almost as if she were giving the crowd a break before kicking her performance into high gear with her final song. Although her set was a short one, she definitely put a dent in the standards of a good performance and left her mark on each and every individual in the crowd that night as a performer to remember. 2013 may be ending, but judging by her energetic performance and jubilant persona, Sirah really can make 2014 her year.
