For all the negatives 2017 has brought, it has been a great year for music, as evidenced by our list of the best albums of the year. There has been some really innovative work from artists on the rise, from SZA to Lil Uzi Vert to Kelela. But we’ve also had some longtime talents come with albums that challenged not only listeners but the artists themselves. Tyler the Creator gave us his most profound and emotional albums yet.
Mac Demarco is a fan of Paul McCartney, enough so that the Canadian singer-songwriter decided to cover the legend's 1979 classic Christmas song "Wonderful Christmas Time." Not only that, but DeMarco also included a cute and strange drawing alongside his cover, which features a a blob-like version of himself lounging on a couch with McCartney. Although first released in the late 70s, McCartney later included "Wonderful Christmas Time" as a bonus track on The Wings' 1993 album Back to the Egg.
Although Tyga released his fifth studio album BitchImTheShit2 earlier in 2017, the rapper shows no signs of slowing down. He's also released a couple of singles this year, and now, on Christmas, he's dropped an inventive music video for one of them. The "Boss Up" video, which switches alternates between animation and live action, is pretty out there, especially in one scene where the animated version of the rapper is being fed sushi by a woman. There's also some people trying to kill him.
Hi Ry. It’s Lea. Lea Michele. I wanted to let you know I watched the first episode of your Versace show. Wow. W-O-W. I know I initially expressed anger, after all this was the role I was born to pl—the person you are trying to reach is not accepting calls at this time...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
