Beyoncé saw the release of two remixes to her single "Drunk In Love" today. One was by Detail, who released a seven minute version of unused vocals and production from when he worked on the original version called "Drunken Love;" the other was by Kanye West, who extends the track and throws in a verse of his own. Hear the Detail remix in the replies.

Today we've compiled a special edition of AbsolutePlaylist for Valentine's Day. All of us here on AP.net have different plans for the holiday - and whether or not we're in a relationship, we're excited to share a few songs with you. A batch of staff members who are in relationships asked their significant others to choose a song that was meaningful to them and that, in a way, represented their relationship. We let them do the writing this time and they contributed a short blurb about why they chose that song. Another batch of staff who are riding solo today chose songs as well and contributed short writeups. Just click into the replies and check it out.

Lou Pearlman, the man behind that wave of boy-bands we all remember has given his first interview from prison.
Five days before his May 2008 sentencing, Pearlman, who will be 74 when he gets out, issued a formal request to be permitted to develop bands while behind bars-all he would require was a telephone and an Internet connection two days a week. Prosecutors objected strongly, as did Judge G. Kendall Sharp, who instead ordered Pearlman to 300 months in jail-one month per $1 million he admitted to stealing-with the stipulation that his sentence could be reduced one month per $1 million he repaid.

Fall Out Boy spoke with Rolling Stone a little about their "Flappy Bird" rip-off and how they can relate a little to the backlash the developer saw over his game. I posted a link to this article the other day in my blog, and it touches on a lot of the same topics from the perspective of another indie-developer.
"We were over in Japan, playing Flappy Bird when it went crazy," Fall Out Boy bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz tells Rolling Stone. Because of jet lag, the band would all wake up around 4:45 a.m., and then discuss Flappy Bird in the pre-dawn hours: Was the designer pulling the game just as a stunt? “It seemed genuine that this was not the kind of attention that he wanted,” Wentz says....

Drake has taken to his blog to apologize for his comments regarding Rolling Stone's decision to replace him on cover with the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
After dwelling on it for a few hours or days you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time. So here I am having that moment. I once again apologize to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way. I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.
