First Listen: JOHNNYSWIM


We can't stop listening to (or watching) the fantastic new track by JOHNNYSWIM, "Bonsoir" ("Good Evening" in French)!

Nashville-based duo JOHNNYSWIM is comprised of Louis Vuitton model (and daughter of Donna Summer) Amanda Ramirez, along with her husband of just over a year Abner Ramirez.

Amanda kind of reminds us of a raw-er, more folky Alicia Keys, while the pair's music oozes soul and compatibility.

We can't wait to see what else these two come up with!

Inadvertent Mashup: Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars "Billionaire"


We just had a crazy idea.

On Monday, we saw Bruno Mars perform the chorus of "Billionaire" at Advertising Week and Billboard's AMP'd Up! Opening Concert.

On Thursday, we saw Travie McCoy perform the verses of "Billionaire" at Hennessy and Hot 97's Artistry NYC event at SOBs.

It's a shame these two couldn't team up live for the jam - would have been great! - but as we understand it, you have to be in a different city every night, oh I I swear, if you want to be a billionaire.

Thankfully, with the magic of iMovie, Poison Ivy was able to sew their separate parts into one.

Check out the Mars/McCoy inadvertent mashup, above.
