We don't always do Beyonce-only news, but this week, I thought: why not? Mostly, I found three Beyonce-related things I wanted to post about on the blog and I couldn't do it without at least acknowledging that yes, I know it's overkill. So a Beyonce post works, guys. Here's what's going on with Mrs. Knowles-Carter this week:
Swing Version of "Drunk In Love"
People do covers of Beyonce's songs all the time — some are great, some are good, some are okay, some are terrible. This one is pretty great. It's fun and re-imagines the song in a whole new way, big-band style!

Recently, we talked about couples who made a music video together to profess their undying devotion, only to break up or divorce some time down the road. Some of these artists were even repeat offenders (looking at you, Britney and J.Lo). But maybe couples in music videos isn't all bad?
Here are five couples who starred in a music video with one another and stayed together.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill first got together in 1996. Since then, they've starred in five music videos together, including "It's Your Love"; "I Need You"; "Let's Make Love"; "Just To Hear You Say That You Love Me"; and "Like We Never Loved At All" (above). They've had even more songs together, and they currently have a Las Vegas residency called Soul2Soul. Although there have been recent rumors that they might be going through a tough time, so far, the couple still belongs on this list.
You know how people say you should never get your significant other's name tattooed on you? Maybe that advice should also extend to making a music video together... because with the internet, music videos kind of are forever. So here's a list of 5 celebrity couples who have made a music video together — and then subsequently broke up.
John Mayer and Katy Perry
John Mayer and Katy Perry's recent breakup was actually the catalyst for this list, given that they only just released their collaboration last year. John and Katy recorded the song "Who You Love" for John Mayer's most recent album, "Paradise." But shortly after their video was released, racking up 15 million views on VEVO, they broke up. Oops.
Please note: Although the video contains ONLY Emojis, this is possibly not safe for work... which is why we posted it on the weekend.
A new version of Beyonce and Jay Z's music video, "Drunk In Love," is perfect for those of us who tend to over-use Emojis when we're texting our friends. A man named Jesse Hill created this video, which uses Emojis to visually explain the song lyrics. It's so creative and fun that Beyonce actually posted the video on her Facebook page and said, "Love this!!"
What do you think?
March is Women's History Month, so across the world, people are celebrating awesome ladies! On our Facebook page, we recently asked people to share some of their favorite female singers. The answers varied, from P!nk to Amy Lee to Ann Wilson.
While it would be impossible to compile a list of the BEST female singers and then try to rank them, I am more than comfortable picking a few great female singers who deserve to be recognized for all they've done. Here are 5 powerhouses music owes a debt of gratitude!
Cher, who has earned the nickname Goddess of Pop, first emerged on the scene in 1965 when she and her husband, Sonny Bono, rose to fame. Through the years, she established herself as a singer in her own right, and even went on to have several Broadway and acting gigs. Cher has had incredibly successful hit singles, including early tunes like "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and "Dark Lady," and later songs like "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe."
