Today's the very last instalment in the #HOTNEW14 round-up. As we aggregate all the 'Hottest Of' in 2014, we cannot forget what keeps our site alive and thriving-- the commenters. Or trolls. Not every commenter is a troll, but we know a good half of you are.
As one of the most anticipated segments of the #HOTNEW14 end-of-year rollout, HNHH is pleased to present our top 50 songs of the year. As always, you're gonna have to do some scrolling to find out the #1 hottest record.
The idea of a viral video is something music industry marketers dream of. Unfortunately, not everything goes viral. It takes a rare combination of things that professors get paid thousands a year to teach. Shit, they get tenure.
Last week, Spotify announced, among other year-end lists, that Pharrell Williams' "Happy" was their most-streamed song of the year. Now, iTunes is saying it's their top-selling song of the year. Damn.
2013 was a great year for hip-hop fans. Pusha T finally released his long-awaited debut album My Name Is My Name and did not disappoint his fans. Kanye West christened himself a deity with Yeezus. J.
Drake is the poster boy for VIBE's year-end Race Issue, his slightly menacing portrait framed by such tag lines as "Are You A Racist?", "Kevin Hart Has White Power", "Taming Rev. Al Sharpton" and "Ku Klux Klan In 2014".
We break down all the biggest categories in Hip Hop and R&B, including songs, mixtapes, albums, videos and everything in between (including Trolls). Peep the official schedule for each of the lists below. So who made the Hottest Lists for 2013?
2013 was a big year in music with major artists dropping some game-changing albums, rising stars coming out of nowhere to surprise the hip-hop community and your usual hip-hop crews releasing tracks that were bangers.
Yesterday we kicked off our month of the Hottest of 2013 with the Most Searched Artists On HNHH. That's just the beginning though, as you can expect a lot more from us within the coming weeks, leading up to the New Year.
