Chris Brown has a new music video. He wants you all to “love each other.” He’s going all black-and-white to help prove his point. (Vibe)

A bunch of awesome people including Paul McCartney played Bonnaroo this weekend. There is plenty to recap, from day two alone. (Paste)

If that wasn’t enough summarizing for you, here are some more photos of the shenanigans. Included is R. Kelly’s bedazzeled microphone. (Pitchfork)

30 Seconds to Mars are going on a “new adventure”: a tour throughout the U.K. and Ireland. (NME)

After over 10 years of producing solid music, The National are officially no longer underdogs. (NPR Music)

In a fight for old man bragging rights, it appears that Black Sabbath has the upper hand against Rod Stewart over in the U.K. (The Guardian)

Last night the MuchMusic Video Awards happened. Highlights include a Psy performance of Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies,” and a Drake appearance. (Billboard)

Speaking of Drake, he’s going on a North American tour this fall. Commence freakout mode, Drake fans. (Rolling Stone)

Justin Bieber has been a real pal, offering his official seal of approval to Kanye West’s album Yeezus. (Twitter)

With all this talk of the new Kanye album, it’s easy to lose track of what Jay-Z is doing… Whoops, he's got a new album too and it drops July 4. (Idolator)

Kanye’s album did use a lot of samples, though. One blogger was diligent (obsessed) enough to find them all and make a mix. (Potholes In My Blog)
