This Sunday, Beyoncewill be hitting millions of television screens across the country in a much buzzed-about performance during the big game. Apparently, some “football” will be opening and closing for Queen Bey, but we’re most excited about the match-up between Beyonce, Kelly Rowlandand Michelle Williams; otherwise known as Destiny’s Child.
For today’s Video-Round up, we gathered other live performances featuring Beyonce and the ladies to gear up for their reunion on Sunday. Listen to their new Love Songs compilation, featuring the new single, “Nuclear” now on the Music Unlimited service.
After a break from the pomp and circumstance of the Holiday season, you’ve probably noticed a trickling of heart-shaped candy slowly taking over your local convenience store and a stir of affections bouncing around in preparation for Valentine’s Day. Regardless of whether you’ll be buying something for your sweetheart or just taking advantage of candy sales after the fact, love (or lack thereof) is on everyone’s minds.
On February 12th, the Music Unlimited service will be launching our Heart Attack channel, with something for every type of romantic, from those starry-eyed lovers to those that will be spending the evening with a comfort burrito, watching The Notebook on Video Unlimited. Love is different for everyone, which is why we need YOUR help in coming up with the tracklisting.
From now through February 6th, you can visit our Facebook page and leave a comment with your favorite love . . . or not-love songs. To help inspire you, we’re also letting you vote for the first track of the channel. Click here to contribute now!
The East: Brit Marling plays a corporate security operative going undercover in an eco-terrorist organization that is targeting her client. This first trailer plays like a video of the group’s demands and shows what could be a really interesting espionage story.
Inside Llewyn Davis: The Coen Brothers are back with this period film about a traveling folk musician unlucky both in life and love. His ex-girlfriend, played by Carey Mulligan, seems to be a constant thorn in his side in what looks like another great film from this filmmaking pair.
Future Weather: After being abruptly abandoned by her mother, a young girl passionate about the environment must take survival into her own hands and learn to trust her grandmother as they leap into the unknown. This is a strong trailer for this small, character-driven movie.
Upside Down: Starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst (who gets to be in another movie with a gravity-defying kiss), this is a story of two people in love who are confounded by the economic differences that divide two twin planets with opposite gravity. Looks like a high-concept and intriguing take on Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers.
The Kitchen: With a soundtrack by fun. and other great bands, this story about a group of family and friends who convene for a very awkward 30th birthday party looks like it could be pretty uncomfortably funny.

JBiebs has been riding a runaway train of success before he even hit 18, hitting platinum success across multiple countries and a staggering following of Beliebers who have helped him dominate most major music conversations. Amidst the whirlwind of the 2011 release of Believe, he managed to slow it down a bit and record acoustic versions of some of the album’s biggest tracks, without all the pomp and circumstance, including “Boyfriend,” “Beauty and the Beat,” and a live recording of “Fall.” While that is more than enough to keep fans happy, he’s also included three new songs, “Yellow Raincoat,” “I Would,” and the bonus track, “Nothing Like Us”

Just in time for their reunion performance at the big game on Sunday, Destiny’s Child has come together and compiled a list of their most romantic tunes with Love Songs. While they have each explored separate avenues of success, this is a solid reminder of what put them on the music map in the first place. The tracks span across multiple albums and are some of the deep cuts that you may have missed under the weight of their massive dance songs. However, don’t miss “Nuclear,” a brand new, down-beat closer written by the girls in light of the reunion and hopefully a mirror of what is to come from the dynamic threesome.
If You Like: TLC, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland Recommended Track: “Nuclear”

Based on the initial feedback from the internet after last night’s reveal, it seems like consensus to the Coachella 2013 headliners is a resounding “meh.” The festival has managed to out-hipster itself, forcing its most die-hard fans to question their devotion in a knee-jerk let-down.
But fear not! Despite your thoughts on the headliners, many of the other smaller-font artists are likely to be creating the biggest buzz over the two weekends in Indio. If you’re going or even if you’re not, check our Top 10 picks of the underdogs of Coachella.
