Watch Santigold’s wonderfully vain performance of “Can’t Get Enough of Myself”
Since "L.E.S. Artistes," Santigold has been an anti-pop pop star, playing with the form like "Wilfred" did the cliches of a dog's life. She's continued that semi-satirical streak on her latest album, "99¢," which is maybe a comment on the eventual worth of any artist's work, or maybe a tribute to the dollar menu.

Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Broncos-themed “Let It Go” is crazy adorable
Looking around Denver, it's not obvious the city is competing for its first Super Bowl in 14 years. Aside from that pop-up store on the 16th Street Mall, the odd Broncos flag waving from a balcony and Denver International Airport's orange and blue departure arrival color scheme, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Broncos are heading into their first pre-season game this Sunday and not the biggest game of the year (century?).
Even for Drake, this is some pretty lame product hawking
Aubrey, sometimes you make it too easy. Signing up with T-mobile to hustle cell phone service with a tie in to "Hotline Bling" is perhaps one of the more uninspiring pieces of promotion we've seen since Nike offered an endorsement deal to Carmelo Anthony.

To kick things off, the band has just released a music video for their latest single, "Had It All." The video features the members of One Flew West as increasingly ridiculous characters in a '90s sitcom credits intro, a la the hilarious and nightmarish viral video, "Too Many Cooks." The band shot the video with the help of Denver's Perplexity Pictures and the University of Colorado's CAM Records class, which is currently assisting One Flew West with their publicity.
El Vy covers David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” on The Late Show
