Unless you’ve been sitting under a rock for the past three years on a deserted island, roped, tied, and gagged, you have more than likely been exposed to the teenage cultural phenomenon that is Justin Bieber.

The song features Big Sean and will be on Wale's upcoming album "Ambition." The album drops November 11 and you can pre-rder it here.

Kanye West's independent record label, G.O.O.D. Music, has officially been signed to an exclusive long-term worldwide label agreement with the Island Def Jam Music Group (IDJMG). The announcement was made today by West and Barry Weiss, Chairman and COO of Universal Motown Republic Group and IDJMG. This contract marks the beginning of a new era of really GOOD music. "G.O.O.D. Music is an exciting new chapter in the long and successful association of Kanye West and Island Def Jam," said Weiss. "As a recording artist and a producer over the past eight years, there is no one who has made a greater impression on the game than Kanye. We look forward to working closely with the new and established artists that he will be bringing to G.O.O.D. Music, which is already off to an impressive start with Big Sean."
Kanye West performed his latest single “Power” for the first time last night at the BET Awards. The rapper, who has been M.I.A. since the whole Taylor Swift debacle, is dropping his album Good A** Job September 14, 2010. Kanye won’t be the only one to drop an album on that date though. Kid Cudi and Big Sean who are under Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music Label are also releasing their albums. Cudi’s Man On The Moon pt. 2 and Big Sean’s Finally Famous will compete with Kanye’s album for the highest record sales. This should be interesting. Check out the video of Kanye’s performance below!
