Drake sells 600K+ copies in the first day of his new album,"Views". "Views" is an iTunes exclusive for an entire week before it lands in stores and other streaming apps. Upon its release on April 29, the album and its song titles were all trending on Twitter. Drake samples Brandy on "Fire & Desire" and Mary J. Blige throughout the 20 track. Drake touches on his relationship with Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. Rihanna, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Future, Pimp C, and OVO artists round out the guest artists. Have you all heard the new Drake album and what do you think of it? In my opinion the album is not bad. I think it takes a couple of listens to fully get into it but reviews for the album have been mixed. But those sales are throughout the roof. In other music news, Khia dragged Beyoncé and Serena Williams on social media over her video for "Sorry" and the Beyhive came back and dragged Khia in return. Even the Game clapped back at Khia for her comments. Why? I don't know but we all know how Game is anyway. I do think everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is not going to be a fan of Beyoncé but tell that to the Beyhive. In case you missed it, a few days ago Usher released a semi nude photo on his Snapchat, which I just started following! :) After he received some flack for the picture Usher decided to clap back citing he is not one of these "thick thigh big booty niggas". Ha! Say it like you mean it Ursher! Isn't it time for a new Usher album btw? I wonder is he working on one? Usher's Snapchat is very interesting I will say. He shows us his every move throughout the day as he goes to get shakes, takes his son to his basketball game, at events, etc. Do you all follow any artists on Snapchat? Well until next time folks! Thanks for reading! :) For more music news, gossip, rumors, and my personal commentary check back again! :) D

More Beyoncé news: Tonight is the opening night of the Formation tour in Miami. Opener DJ Khaled brought out Future, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, and more. Jay Z was also seen backstage. Are you going to see Beyoncé this go round? And as far as the ongoing rumors of who the "Becky" is in question on Beyoncé's song, her father Mathew Knowles knows all! He said Beyoncé is referring to him and not Jay Z. Oddly enough some people did consider Beyoncé might of been referring to her father in some aspects but I think she is referring to Jay in some songs too. Things that make you go hmmm! Meanwhile Beyoncé is laughing all the way to the bank! In other music news, Tank basically admitted to being bisexual depending on how you take it. He posted a video of him saying, "I like what I like. I'm a nasty motherfucker!". This comes on the heels of a report published by an online blog that Tank was messaging a transgender girl. Tank is currently with Zena Foster. I'm not sure what her occupation is or if their married or not. Does anyone know and what do you think about Tank's admission to being a "freak"? Beyoncé may have some competition as Drake's "Views From The 6" drops on April 29. The rapper just released the tracklisting to the album which features 20 songs. Big Sean's "Dark Sky Paradise" album has been certified Platinum and Bryson Tiller's album, "T R A P S O U L" has been certified Gold. Congrats guys! For more music news, gossip, rumors, and my personal commentary check back again tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. Ha! Thanks for reading!

More Beyoncé news: "Lemonade", the physical album and DVD package will be available in Target on May 6!!! "Lemonade" is on track to sale 600 thousand copies in its full first week which will give it the coveted #1 spot on Billboard. "Lemonade" will mark Beyoncé's 6th #1 album on the Billboard 200 Album chart. First single, "Formation" is the #1 song on iTunes! In the wake of the "Becky-gate", Rita Ora has came out and denied any wrong doing when it comes to Beyoncé and Jay-Z's relationship. But it looks like Rita Ora is taunting Bey as well. She has been seen on social media adorning the same dresses that Bey has wore and even bras with lemonades on it. Many think this is simply a marketing scheme and everyone's in on it. Rachel Roy, who was said to be the original Becky denies being Becky. On a much lighter note, "Full House" alum actress, Lori Loughlin who plays "Becky" said she's not Becky either! :) Ha! What do you all think of this mess? My, why do I feel like everything I just typed was what I typed a two days ago! :( In other music news, Fantasia will release her new album, "The Definition of..." on June 1. Jennifer Hudson will star in NBC's live production of "Hairspray". Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are rumored to be having a baby! Say what now? For more music news, rumors, gossip, and my personal thoughts check back tomorrow or the next day! :) Thanks for reading!

Shortly after "Lemonade" aired, people began to speculate who exactly Beyoncé was referring to when she sung "Becky with the good hair". Well everyone didn't have to wonder for long because Damon Dash's ex-wife, Rachel Roy started shading Beyoncé with the song reference which led many to believe she was the woman responsible for Jay-Z's infidelity. Soon the #Beyhive began attacking Rachel Roy and her daughter on social media. Rachel issued a statement saying that she respects marriage and wouldn't do such a thing to ruin the union of a marriage. Apparently the #Beyhive was not buying this and soon Rachel Roy deleted her social media page altogether after making it private briefly. Not content on resting, the #Beyhive formed together and came up with the fact that "Becky" may indeed be former Roc Nation artist, Rita Ora(l), which wouldn't surprise me if it were true. Rita has been around in the industry but has she banged Jay-Z? Who knows! Jay-Z's stylist June Ambrose got on social media and said Rachel Roy was not involved with Jay Z in anyway. Okay, well that takes Rachel out of the running so is it Rita Ora(l)? At one point last night, when I was on Twitter, all the trending topics were related to Beyoncé including "#LEMONADE", "Becky with the good hair", "Hold Up" and more. Whew! The power of Beyonce!
