The “diva” has been a long-standing and coveted title for many female singers. What was once a term of a high- maintenance personality is now more of a declaration of power, poise and influence. Divas are widely revered as some of the fiercest women in entertainment.
We are celebrating these ladies in a brand new Ultimate Divas Playlist, now available on the Music Unlimited service. Our list ranges from legends like Aretha Franklin and TLC, chart-toppers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and newcomers Lorde and Ariana Grande. Check it out!
Few hip-hop artists have showed total dominance in the field like Eminem. His ascent and the ensuing controversies which followed him in the ‘90s made him one of the more fascinating pop culture personalities of the era. Lyrically decadent and violent, he also possesses jaw-dropping verbal skills that allow him to stretch sentence structure, pronunciation and cadences like an elastic Chicago Manual of Style.
His latest birth-name-titled release, The Marshall Mathers LP2, puts him back on top, juggling aggression and a genuine love of party-rocking hip-hop. With “The Monster” and “Berzerk” burning up playlists, we’re taking a look back at the many tracks in which he has added his singular verses in the new Eminem: Guest Verses and Song-Stealing Rhymes from Slim Shady Playlist, now available on the Music Unlimited service. In true Slim Shady style, he turns a guest spot into a starring role and the tracks here show him in his star-making ascendency as well as a celebrity guest.
Take a listen to his standout verses on “Forgot About Dre” and “What’s the Difference” from Dr. Dre’s 2001 album. He’s still got something to prove here and he’s equal parts menacing and clever. Compare these to the brothers-in-arms style he takes up with 50 Cent on tracks like “Gatman and Robbin” and “Psycho.” His style morphs around the beat, while his lines are rugged and unpredictable.

When the girls of Fifth Harmony first auditioned for second the season of The X Factor, they came in as individuals. After reaching a certain stage of the signing competition show, the judges realized they might be “better together,” much like One Direction (maybe you’ve heard of them?) Ultimately, they finished as a group in third place, but took what they learned and the bond they formed straight to a record deal. They are currently in the midst of a very ambitious series of releases, starting with their debut EP, Better Together, as well as a Spanish version, English & Spanish acoustic versions and an album of remixes (out 11/25.) That’s five EPs . . . see what they did there?)
