Justin Timberlake Shares New Single 'Drown'

Justin Timberlake recently released "Drown," a new single from his upcoming LP Everything I Thought It Was.

Timberlake co-wrote and co-produced "Drown" with Louis Bell, Cirkut, Kenyon Dixon and Amy Allen.

"Got caught up in the tide of all the tears you cried/ Yeah, you know I was blinded by my heart, sinking from the start/ Should've never followed you this far, now I'm in the deep end/ And you let me drown/ You didn't even try to save me," Timberlake sings in the chorus.

Justin took to Instagram last Wednesday to share a clip showing him working in the studio with some collaborators, as the new single plays in the background. "Drown 2/23," read the caption.

Earlier, the singer teased the song on Instagram on February 19, captioning the post, "Made it out to London, still recovering from this flu. But trying to power through. So excited for new music and everything coming this week. DROWN 2/23."

Kings Of Leon Return With New Single 'Mustang,' Announce New Album

Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum rock band Kings of Leon have announced that their 9th full-length studio album, Can We Please Have Fun, will be out on May 10.

The hard-charging lead single "Mustang" is available now, accompanied by a high-flying music video that sets the pace for the album.

Can We Please Have Fun, as its title suggests, is a document of the great rock & roll band cutting loose, trying new things, and having some fun.

Recorded at Dark Horse studio in Nashville and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon, the album sees a new side of Kings of Leon.

On the new album, the band harkens back to their gritty origins while simultaneously finding new gears. It's the sound of a band unified in vision and purpose, freed from any expectations, and the album the band says they've always wanted to make.

"It was the most enjoyable record I've ever been a part of," Caleb Followill says about the making of the album. "It's like we allowed ourselves to be musically vulnerable," Nathan Followill adds. "I love it when a rock band is not embarrassed to admit that every song doesn't have to be on 11."

Can We Please Have Fun is available to pre-order at https://kingsofleon.lnk.to/CanWePleaseHaveFun

"He might not have ever been considered as Country but you can't go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life's work of great American songs."

Bentley added, "The spirit of this woman, the idea of such relentless hope-and disappointment-ignites such a spark. Jon Randall and I were driven to make that feeling of American roots stand tall."

Sexual Assault Case Against Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Dismissed

Sexual Assault Case Against Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Dismissed

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan has dismissed a sexual assault case filed against Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler by model Jeanne Bellino, ruling that Tyler's actions did not present "serious risk of physical injury" to the plaintiff.

The case pertains to an incident that allegedly took place in 1975, when Bellino was 17. She claimed in her lawsuit that Tyler "stuck his tongue down her throat, and put his hands upon her body, her breasts, her buttocks and her genitals" inside a New York phone booth. She also alleged that the singer rubbed his body on her and pretended to have sex with her while his bandmates and other members of their entourage watched and laughed.

Bellino added that another incident took place later that day in a hotel lobby, forcing her to leave the place.

Claiming that she suffered "great pain of mind and body" and "severe and permanent emotional distress" as a result of the incident, Bellino filed the case under New York City's Victim of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Act, a law which extended the statute of limitations for certain alleged sexual assaults.

However, Kaplan said Bellino waited too long to sue the rock star and ruled that her accusations did not qualify under the law because Tyler's actions did not pose "serious risk of physical injury."

Tyler's lawyer David Long-Daniels told Reuters, "We agree with the judge's reasoning, and are grateful for this result on behalf of our client."

Bellino has until March 13 to amend and resubmit her case.
