Lil Wayne unleashes 'Free Weezy Album' for Fourth of July weekend — Lil Wayne just dropped FWA (Free Weezy Album), the project he's been teasing since February, on Jay Z's streaming service Tidal. Listen to it here. The 32-year-old rapper, who in June became one of the co-owners of Tidal, previously unleashed "Glory" from FWA last month, adding intense hype leading into Friday's release.

Watch the Summerfest music festival live stream: You can pick from 4 stages — Summerfest, touted as " the world's largest music festival," continues Friday, and you don't need to be in Milwaukee to watch the barrage of bands and solo artists perform. Starting Friday at 8 p.m.

Rihanna seriously kidnapped 80 fans and took them on a 'BBHMM' road trip — LOS ANGELES - It's dark. Shar Jossell waits blindfolded inside a black bus headed to an unknown destination. The windows are covered in black drapes. But unlike Rachel Roberts, the damsel in distress whom Rihanna kidnaps and tortures in her bloody "Bitch Better Have My Money" video, 27-year-old Jossell is safe.

Rihanna's 'BBHMM' video is here, and it's cinematic money — LOS ANGELES - Rihanna takes the kidnapping theme from her Saturday Night Live performance of "BBHMM" to another level in the song's music video, which premiered at 9 p.m. PT Wednesday after she introduced it to a small crowd in Santa Monica.

Drag queen Courtney Act changes rugged man's mind in 'Ugly' music video — Courtney Act, a former finalist on RuPaul's Drag Race in 2014 and semifinalist on Australian Idol in 2003, tackles gender boundaries in her dramatic music video for "Ugly." The singer snags a handsome fellow, who resists her advances after finding out she's in drag attire.

Prince's music removed from all streaming services except Tidal — Prince, who memorably proclaimed "the Internet's completely over" in 2010, is now absent from all streaming services except Jay Z's music platform Tidal. "Prince's publisher has asked all streaming services to remove his catalog," a Spotify spokesperson told Mashable on Wednesday. "We have cooperated with the request, and hope to bring his music back as soon as possible."

Prince's new 'HARDROCKLOVER' is your smooth summer party anthem — Prince turns his guitar up for his new sexy summer joint, "HARDROCKLOVER." Each time he rains down seductive lyrics ("you better cover your ears 'cause you're about to hear a woman just scream"), his fingers work magic on the guitar strings.

These were the first 4 songs played on Apple Music's Beats 1 — LOS ANGELES - Apple Music and its Beats 1 radio launched Tuesday, and the coveted first spot on the 24/7 station's inaugural playlist went to English rockers Spring King. To open the show, host Zane Lowe blasted Spring King's "City," a move that surprised the band and fans.

Feel so goddamn handsome with X Ambassadors' live version of 'Gorgeous' — Mashable Debuts exclusively premieres music, videos, artwork as well as trailers from movies, television and games. New York alt-rockers X Ambassadors, the band behind the unofficial (yet officially badass) World Cup anthem " Jungle," tamed their roar for this live rendition of "Gorgeous."

Get satisfaction with Ed Sheeran and Rolling Stones singing 'Beast of Burden' — Ed Sheeran, our modern-day male master of live duets, hopped onstage with The Rolling Stones to perform the 1978 classic "Beast of Burden" over the weekend.
