TIME Business & Money published an article on Beats by Dre and the "premium headphone" category they've inspired. The piece mentions some interesting statistics: Sales of $100+ premium headphones increased 73% in 2012, and premium headphones now make up 43% of all headphone sales (Beats account for 64% of that market). Are you using Beats, or any other premium headphones? Discuss in the replies.

With the announcement of Justin Timberlake's new album on Monday, his first album in six years, the topic of releasing quality over quantity was the first topic that seemed to arise (or at least for me). While debating and arguing music is all semantics, there is still something to be said for an artist that can return from their musical hiatus and release high quality material that lives up to their fans expectations, even after so many years. In general, most artists release a new album every two to three years at most, which has worked in the frameworks of the music industry of the past. Build hype, release album, tour said album and then eventually start writing and head back into...

You can check out our interview with Blackbear here. We talk about his most recent mixtape, as well as his involvement on the upcoming Relient K album, due in 2013.
From The InterviewRelient K is one of my favorite bands ever, and I feel their albums get better and better as they go. I'm blessed to be good friends with Matt, and he doesn't feature a lot on albums, let alone a borderline hip hop mixtape. I met Matt in Los Angeles, and we wrote a song for the new Relient K album. I flew to Nashville and worked on the record with the rest of the guys. Amazing new music, be on the watch for it
