Celine Dion’s ‘Courage’ Has Her Believing in Life After Love

Celine Dion’s ‘Courage’ Has Her Believing in Life After Love
Celine Dion didn’t really have much need for a “comeback.” She is one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, has been hailed as one of the greatest, most versatile voices in history and for years reigned supreme over Las Vegas as its highest-paid act. Not a single wedding or karaoke bar in the world has gotten through an evening without at least one of her songs tearing down the roof, brimming with nostalgia and that signature French-Canadian accented warble.

A$AP Ferg Recruits Skrillex For New Single

Skrillex has been on a serious hip-hop binge, and A$AP Ferg is the latest to recruit the world’s most in-demand producer.
