Gwen Stefani – Spark The Fire (Prod. by .@Pharrell)

Nearly a decade ago, Gwen Stefani teamed up with Pharrell and brought you the the number one hit "Hollaback Girl." Today, nearly a decade later, they dropped another hit dance record, titled "Spark the Fire." The song begins with Pharrell's signature one bar count-in, and immediately follows with an unpredictable, almost ballad-type intro. Soon after, the song transforms into the same highly energetic and catchy vibe that we are accustomed to from the duo. Listen to the track below and let us know what you think about it.

Wu-Tang Clan's RZA: Fans Becoming Disconnected From Music

In an interview with Bloomberg's Devin Leonard, Wu-Tang Clan discussed what physical products are still important in digital music as they prepare to release their first album in 7 years. RZA told Bloomberg Television that his idea with this album was to "find a way to get the brick and mortar stores back involved in music…I know we got Spotify, you got downloadable music but vinyl is making a big comeback because people want to hold it. You want to hold it. "

The clan also discussed why the "Wu Tang Forever" remix with hip-hop star Drake hasn't happened yet.  Masta Killa told Bloomberg's Leonard: "I wanted to do it. I don't even know or understand why... but I'm still willing to do it. If he wants to do it, let's do it. You know."

Black Sheep's .@DresBlacksheep Premieres Music Video on

Black Sheep's Dres Today Premieres The Official Music Video For Single “Propagation” Exclusively on Dres (Andres Titus) the lead rapper of the legendary hip-hop duo Black Sheep, has released the official music video for his single “Propagation.”

Coming at an eerily appropriate time on the heels of the Mike Brown verdict, “Propagation” is a record birthed as a conversation between Dres and his young son, who's featured on the record and in the video with him, about what a child of color would need to know about growing up in America. “A hook wasn’t necessary, just a rhyme that continuously told you things that would help you walk through life as a young child of color in America,” says Dres. “I am from an era where we did get educated within the music, not to say we didn’t have fun or there weren’t raunchy records, but there was this element of hip-hop that was educational and empowering. That is over-abundantly missing in today’s music and it is import…

Hip Hop Mogul Rick Ross on His Love of Pears and How He's Still a 'Fat Boy Forever'It’s no secret that we at Bon Appétit are fans of rapper Rick Ross. So when we heard that along with a new album, Hood Billionaire, Ross was debuting a slimmer, trimmer figure along with a newfound love of pears, we had to reminisce about old times and see what he has cooking up. 
They invited Ross to the BA offices to talk with Alison Roman, about his healthier eating habits, how to prepare branzino, and why he’s still a “fat boy forever.”
