When Beyonce shared footage of her rehearsal for the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, I joked that the scenes of her on a laptop were telltale signs of her surfing the web for inspiration from more original entertainers. Little did I know that I was right on the stolen money.
Drake is probably the most consistent rapper on the music scene today but he didn’t achieve that status by resting on his laurels. Instead, he has figured out the effectiveness of being timely with his releases and he will continue that trend with a new single on the night of the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Beyonce received heavy flak for using a pre-recorded track during her performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the inauguration of US President Barack Obama.

When Little Mix kicked off their recording career, they brought a breath of fresh air to the girl group music scene with their colourful visuals and surprisingly enjoyable songs. However, that spark that defined the four young ladies has faded, as depicted in their new lacklustre “Change Your Life” video.
Beyonce has been working hard as she prepares for her upcoming performance at the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, between tightening her choreography, and probably watching YouTube footage of past Tina Turner and Janet Jackson concerts, the superstar has shared rehearsal footage of the big event.
Well, that didn’t last very long. After surging up the US charts last week with his new song, “Suit & Tie”, and nabbing the #4 slot on the Billboard Hot 100, Justin Timberlake has already lost his footing and tumbled out of the top 10 just as quickly.
There is nothing as tragic for us music fans as seeing our favourite singers under the pressures of time and slowly lose their ability to handle their signature songs. However, some artists have maintained their gifts and this week’s Way Back Wednesday will celebrate their talent!
