As we reported last night, the streaming service JAY Z acquired, now referred to as “TIDAL,” launched today, March 30. In celebration of its launch, today in New York City, there was a very star-studded press conference / launch event.

One of TIDAL’s selling points, that is excluding the fact that is “combines the best High Fidelity sound quality, High Definition music videos and expertly Curated Editorial,” is...more
The other day, Martin Garrix was in the studio with Usher creating what may believe is a smash hit in the making, “Don’t Look Down.” As part of the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, taking place today (March 23), the official music video for ‘Don’t Look Down’ was just released. The music video, which features an appearance by Natalia Bonifacci, was directed by Petros. Even though neither Martin Garrix nor Usher make an appearance in the video, it is still pretty good. Watch the music video below.
Dutch DJ/producer Martin Garrix sure has made his mark in the EDM world. He is just released yet another BANGER of a record, this time featuring Usher.

The radio-ready smash is available on all digital retailers (i.e. iTunes) today, March 16, which also marks its official release date. Take a listen:
It’s Thursday so you already know what that means. It’s time for all the staff here at Trendio to remind you of some tracks that you might have forgotten. Hopefully last weeks throwback tracks were a nice trip down memory lane. Last Thursday Yetunde selected Sade’s 1984 classic “Smooth Operator.” Fast forward 11 years later and you get Celine Dion’s “Power Of Love,” chosen by Renee. Sarah selected Kelly Clarkson’s hit “Since You’ve Been Gone. “And that leaves Haley’s pick, everyone’s favorite duet from 2008 Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown’s “No Air” to end the playlist. Now that you’re all...more
Back to regularly scheduled programming, it seems. Taylor Swift has somehow made her way back to No. 1 on the chart, proving once again that is American Horror Story’s definition of “Supreme.” Hits Daily Double reports Taylor’s album, 1989, racked up 70,674 in sales the week of February 14, 2015. Considering Taylor Swift’s album is not available to stream on Spotify, its a miracle her album sales increase drastically with streaming count included. The number is 97,390 (sales + streaming), as reported by HDD. Taylor being No. 1 means Fall Out Boy’s album, which was number one last week, has...more
So, we thought of something really cool to add to our trends here on Trendio. Our own piece of Throwback Thursday for everyone’s regular day of nostalgia. This is how it will work: Every Thursday, all 4 of us who run Trendio will pick out songs that we used to love (and still love) from back in the day. Music today isn’t as great as it used to be. It is still good, just not as good. The songs we will share every week will take you so far back, they will remind you of the “Are you feeling old...more
