Listen to over 100 songs from the new ‘Grand Theft Auto V’

While Grand Theft Auto V is arguably the best game of the GTA series, perhaps the best part of the game (as is the case with the entire franchise) is its soundtrack. For this week’s Xbox One / PlayStation 4 re-releaseRockstar has updated the music with “over 100 additional new songs” — and thanks to the Reddit gods, we’ve got a near-complete playlist.

The Reddit community has confirmed 157 of the reported 162 new songs (in addition to the returning tracks from last year’s version). The confirmed tracks were “heard or seen on GTA V live streams” and are guaranteed to make your cruise around Los Santos fit any situation you’re in. It includes a vast array of songs from recent hits by Lorde (“Tennis Court”) and Maroon 5 (“Moves Like…

A Houston radio station is now playing Beyoncé songs 24 hours a day

The radio news business ain’t what it used to be. So after three years as a 24-hour news channel, a Houston radio station, News92 FM, announced this week that it will from now on play nothing but Beyoncé songs, Beyoncé songs, and more Beyoncé songs. There won’t even be commercials, unless you count when she talks about watermelons and Vogue. Queen Bey has five albums to her credit, totaling 63 songs and a little over four hours — those long Texas drives are going to get a little repetitive. Luckily, if you count Destiny’s Child there’s really a lot of music to be had. (One has to imagine that “Single Ladies” and “Flawless” are going to be played a lot, and that exactly no one will mind.) There won’t be as many people involved, as parent…

Samsung’s Milk Music gets $3.99 monthly premium plan to skip unlimited songs

Samsung’s streaming internet radio service Milk has been free of advertising since its launch, though as part of a new update has added the option to pay to skip more tracks and download music to play without an internet connection. The new “premium service” (spotted by Android Police) runs $ 3.99 a month, and upgrades users from six song skips per hour to unlimited. Users also get a sleep timer, as well as the option to turn its curated station DJs on or off. Samsung accidentally outed its premium service back in April inside an infographic posted on its corporate blog, though the feature was described only as a way to remove advertisements, which free users still do not hear.
