KENDRICK Lamar has pulled off the biggest US album debut this year with DAMN., an introspective work of hip-hop storytelling that features Rihanna and U2. DAMN. sold 603,000 copies or the equivalent in streaming and downloads in the week since its April 14 release, tracking service Nielsen Music said late Saturday. Entering at number one on the benchmark Billboard chart, DAMN. sold more in a single week than any other album so far this year. DAMN. follows Lamar's 2015 album To Pimp a Butterfly, which has quickly been hailed as a hip-hop classic with its innovative infusion of jazz and its lyricism that explored the state of black America. While DAMN. has similarly won wide praise, it brings a more classic rap style, even with a pop-oriented collaboration with Rihanna and a guitar rock fusion with U2. DAMN. is a highly personal work and culminates with a track in which Lamar recalls his father being shot while working at a Kentucky Fried Chicken branch in the Los Angeles area.

Credits for his album, DAMN., show songs with U2 and Rihanna. Coachella is famous for surprise guests on stage – a sure way to trigger posts on social media. Rising international focus Staying true to Coachella's alternative roots, Radiohead will play Friday, the third time the arthouse English rockers will be a headliner. Radiohead last year released A Moon Shaped Pool, a lyrically dark album that moved a notch back to the group's early rock style. Radiohead, Lady Gaga and Lamar are all known for their left-leaning politics, meaning Coachella could be yet another major culture event to see denunciations of President Donald Trump. Other performers expected to draw close attention include Lorde, the New Zealander who found phenomenal success as a teenager with the 2013 song Royals and has deliberately kept a low profile in the past couple of years.

Its well worth the download. Download here: Dopamine 5. MediaMonkey If your music library is looking a bit disorganized, MediaMonkey will help you get it in order One of the big pains about digital music is that if your collection is bigger than a few albums, its easy for it to get messy. For example, you might have REM and R.E.M., or U2 and good music. Haha! MediaMonkey cant stop unwanted U2 albums turning up, but this free music app can automatically tag your music as well as other useful things including DLNA streaming, syncing with devices including Android and iPods, run in DJ mode, automatically set volumes so tracks dont vary, record CDs and download audio from the internet. Add-ons offer even more including sound effects and additional format support. Download here: MediaMonkey 6. Winamp A classic free music app supported by a huge collection of downloadable skins and plugins Winamp has been languishing in development hell for a while now, but a new version is coming and the classic version remains a very good little music app that we love to bits, largely because it was our introduction to the joys of MP3 music.

However, it's not got the resolution power of some of the other handsets on the market the HTC One M9, for instance, has a much better front-facing camera, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 even incorporates a panorama mode for the self-portrait lovers. I'm not saying this is critical technology, but if you're one to buy a phone for the pictures you can take of yourself, there are better options out there. Apple Watch Okay, it's not really a key feature, as the Watch is basically just another screen for a device that's already a bit smaller than what's on the market. Apple Watch review But the iPhone 6 was the first device to actively tie in with the Apple Watch , and since the launch of iOS 8.2, you've had the Watch app on your phone whether you like it or not. At least U2 didn't come around to your house to announce that one.

serious so I went to the window to see what was going on. -- pretty serious. It was very confusing, you couldn't see what was happening until you heard the crack of gunfire. And that was it, it was all over. U2 will know this very well, but the people watching who are not aware of this, we think of Parliament as one building, but it is a kind of rabbit warren of connected buildings and corridors.
