Of all the Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington tribute performances we've seen so far, this rendition of 'Hallelujah' by the former's daughter is definitely the most heart-rending. The young Toni Cornell was a pillar of strength as she remembered her father with this classic tune on TV.

Various Artists - The Giver: Music Collection Album Review

By Alex Carson in Music Reviews on 25 September 2014

As someone who's long been a fan of the book, to see 'The Giver' movie finally come to fruition has been quite the nostalgic trip. Headed and ended by OneRepublic and featuring rising stars such as Tori Kelly ('Silent'), Capital Cities ('One Minute More') and other solid up-and-comers in the music industry, 'The Giver: Music Collection' has a perfect mix of superstar power and the flair of still-indie but progressively more mainstream acts to inspire confidence in its pedigree. But is that confidence warranted?

One Republic's first track 'Ordinary Human' has a pleasant synthetic backing and uplifting, optimistic lyrics that, with a certain "sci-fi" vibe, is reminiscent of Muse combined with the nouveau-disco feel common to contemporary popular music. 'One Minute More' plants the album more firmly in the territory of contemporary pop-rock with a light, airy and upbeat tone alongside, again, positive lyrics, and some interesting mid-paced synth. From there we go into the only female vocals on the album with Tori Kelly's 'Silent', which is a competent acoustic guitar song with a country twang. Where 'Silent' takes that distinct country flavor, 'Feel What's Good' by Jake Bugg brings in a dash of classic rock in some electric guitar. It's not strictly acoustic, of course, but it maintains a certain soulful element to its lyrics that resembles that of more acoustic and instrumental music. Bruno Major's 'Children' is more stripped down, its lyrics taking center-stage over a lightly strumming guitar.

Rixton's 'Whole', oddly enough, sounds more like a OneRepublic song than the actual OneRepublic. The music seems unnecessarily slow to the point of lethargy. However, Rixton give way to album highlight Aloe Blacc's 'Here Today'; the strong vibe of gospel and blues give it a certain dynamism and very inspirational quality. 'Shine My Way' by Sheppard has a lot of the same sound, and its more subdued lyrics carry all the richness that the swinging beat demands. The album departs with two more acoustic style songs - NEEDTOBREATHE's 'Difference' and OneRepublic's closer 'I Lived'. 'Difference' is slow and somber throughout, invoking the same vibe that made 'Children' work, while 'I Lived' picks up the pace around the time it gets to the bridge.

What Will Be On OneRepublic's Re-Issue Of 'Native'?

By Joe DeAndrea in Music / Festivals on 06 August 2014

One Republic

OneRepublic are re-releasing their album "Native" with their hit, 'Love Runs Out.'

OneRepublic has been everywhere the past year, and it doesn't look like that's about to change. In a couple of weeks, they'll finish up the U.S. leg of their "Native" summer tour, and they've also been promoting their newest single, 'Love Runs Out.' New music wise, the band just recently released their new track, 'Ordinary Human,' and they're set to put out a re-packaged version of Native with a couple of extra goodies.

OneRepublic's 'Native' will be released next week

On August 11, Native will be re-released featuring six previously unreleased tracks, as well as the aforementioned 'Love Runs Out.' Despite the song being the band's most recent hit on the radio, it was actually never included on the track listing to Native, even though it was originally planned for it to be the lead single. "I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus. And you can't have a song without a chorus," lead singer Ryan Tedder told CapitolFM. Clearly, Tedder eventually found the perfect chorus, because the song is a smash. Now it finally gets the spot on the album it was intended to.

Rihanna Makes UK Chart History As Eminem Collaboration Storms To The No. 1 Spot

The Bajan singer has joined the likes of Elvis Presley and The Beatles by scoring her seventh number one in as many years

Rihanna made chart history this weekend when her latest collaborative effort with rapper Eminem entered the chart at number one, meaning she's hit the top spot for seven years running, at some point or another. The feat has only ever been matched by The Beatles and Elvis Presley and has etched her into the history books alongside those two recording greats.

'The Monster' - her second number one collaboration with Eminem following their massively successful link up on 2010's 'Love the Way you Lie' - continues a run of form that began in 2007 with 'Umbrella' and it looks as though she could even break the eight year mark.

Rihanna has now had 8 number one singles over a period of 7 consecutive calendar years. But let's put that into perspective: alongside her fellow 'Club 7' record breakers, The Beatles had 17 number one singles in the same period, more than double that of Ri-Ri. She's got a long way to go.

The New Zealand-born teen singer/songwriter is now No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic

Lorde, the 16-year-old singer/songwriter behind the mega-hit 'Royals,' has landed her first number one single with her debut track. The New Zealander beat off competition from X Factor winner James Arthur to claim the top spot, making her the youngest person to reach No. 1 since a then-15-year-old Billie Piper did so in 1998 with her debut single 'Because We Want To.'

The singer has topped both the UK and US chart

“I'm so incredibly stoked about being Number 1 this week and very grateful to all the UK fans who bought 'Royals!'” the talented young songstress told the Official Chart Company after it had unveiled her as the nation's official number one single. With a sound well-beyond her years, the talented teen, born Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor, has now conquered the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Singles Chart earlier this month.
