Cage the Elephant might be collaborating with Beck

Cage the Elephant might have something in the works with Beck. The two acts apparently spoke at a recent festival about collaborating sometime. "Yo @beck great meetin ya!" Cage tweeted after the event. "Les get up and do that track sometime soon!" Both Cage the Elephant and Beck are playing this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest, held April 27 to May 6, so perhaps the collab will surface then. Here's hoping for an "Ain't No Rest for the Loser" mash-up. Cage the Elephant's most recent release is their live acoustic album, Unpeeled. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

While this year's Grammy nominations may have given hip-hop some long-overdue respect, in the end, it was a mainstream pop star who actually took home the Grammy gold.  But a perceived lack of adventurousness in the awards was perhaps balanced by the number of political statements sprinkled throughout the evening. Bruno Mars went six for six at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, winning every single category he was nominated in, including Record, Album and Song of the Year for his song "That's What I Like" and his album 24K Magic.  Accepting his award, Bruno paid respect to the other nominees…
