Walk Off The Earth feat. Sarah Silverman: "Video Killed The Radio Star" (Walk off the Earth ENT.): On Friday, Juno-winning and platinum-selling popsters Walk Off The Earth released a new single, a cover of the 1979 hit “Video Killed The Radio Star,” featuring famed US comedian Sarah Silverman.


You could say the choice of song Buggles the mind. Of course, the band has become both radio and video stars with its effervescent brand of melodic pop, and this is no exception. The cover version is given a twist by having Silverman narrate/sing the lyrics, with Walk Off The Earth members Sarah Blackwood and Gianni Luminati adding backing vocals. The in the studio footage shows a real rapport between the group and their guest star.

“We’ve always loved collaborating with different artists and met Sarah back in 2012. We talked about recording something fun together ever since and now the time has finally come," WOTE explains in a press release. 

Freshly re-interpreting outside material has been crucial to WOTE's career, beginning with their five-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," one that exploded on YouTube, garnering over 180 million views. Since then, the band has released a string of successful original songs including, “Red Hands” (#1 at AAA), “Fire In My Soul” and “Rule The World” (multi-platinum in Canada); sold out notable venues across the globe, and collaborated with some huge artists (Keith Urban, Snoop Dogg, Nicky Romero, & Steve Aoki).

An international tour begins in Tulsa, OK, on April 26, and includes such notable venues as Red Rocks and Wembley. Dates here

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
