The first track, entitled ‘Pop Style,’ available now via Apple Music, features Kanye West and..wait for it, JAY Z! On ‘Pop Style,’ Ye and Jigga are credited as ‘The Throne,’ a reference to their since-platinum...more

Since its launch less than a month ago (March 30 to be exact), the service and the 16 high profile owners have received backlash from a variety of different people. The main arguments have been that the owners are already rich so they’re just being greedy (mostly written by people using the latest smartphone that they bought from a $700+ billion dollar company) or that they don’t feel like they should pay for the service when there are other free ones available...more

Mar 02 Mashup Monday (March 2nd Edition)

What is a mashup? Google defines a mashup as: a mixture or fusion of disparate elements. a recording created by digitally combining and synchronizing instrumental tracks with vocal tracks from two or more different songs. Which essentially means that some songs are destined to be together. Whether they have the same BPM or similar titles/lyrics. It just needs to happen and that’s where mashup’s come in. So all of us here at Trendio decided to supply you all with a few awesome mashups every now and then. Here is our first installment. Enjoy!
