Jeremih Premieres I'mma Star Video!

My friend was playing this song two weeks ago in her car while we were on our road trip through Michigan(of all places huh?). No offense to Michigan cause I had a really great time. The more I heard this song, the more I started to like it. It is the type of song I expect to hear in the club and the crowd would react and chant along to.


Music Biz:
Drake Talks About Jay-Z and featuring on his album or not!"I don't know who came up with that rumor to be honest, but I always knew what Jay's first single was going to be," the hype-building Toronto MC told the BoomBox this afternoon. "Me and Jay did a lot of work together. Maybe at one point he was considering doing it and someone got over-excited and put out a press release that I was going to be on the first single."

As for now, Drake is optimistic that he will still appear on Mr. Carter's upcoming September 11 release. "I had a conversation about it a couple of days ago," Drake says of his studio …

The Black Eyed Peas Top Billboart Hot 100 Charts!

Now I don't normally do this but I am posting this week's Billboards chart for everyone to see. If you are like me, I am obsessed with the charts. Every Thursday I would look forward to the issuing of the Billboard charts. Now thanks to many of the message boards I visit, I get a preview of the charts a day before their actually released.

If you are unfamiliar with how the Billboard charts work they are based on sales of physical CDs, digital media, radio airplay and more. The Billboard Hot 100 chart is the main single chart which hosts a variety of genres of music. The first number represents the position the song is this week and the second number represents the position it was in last week. A song with no number in the first column usually indicates a debut or a re-entry. Check it out!

Oh yea also you may see certain titles are highlighted but that's only because the person who posted the charts was showing off certain artists and titles chart positions to members of the …

Eminem Strikes Back At Mariah Carey?
It began with ‘Bagpipes from Baghdad’. Mariah Carey isn’t the only celeb that Eminem took a shot at but she still was damn mad and so was her hubby, Nick Cannon. Eminem claimed to have been having sex with Mariah and demanded her back.
Mariah wasn’t impressed and finally hit back with the song ‘Obsessed’ where it was her chance to get hers back at Eminem. And she did along with a video clip that had her in drag and looking suspiciously like she might be at least trying to look like Eminem.
Now it’s Eminem who has the right of reply and according to some Mariah should be real worried. ‘No one does offensive like Eminem and I don’t wanna know what he might have in store for her lyrically or in the visual….it’s going to be a nasty surprise’ commented rapper 50 Cent who is part of rap group …

Singer/songwriter The-Dream announced via his Twitter page yesterday (July 23) that his third studio album, "Love King," slated for a late 2009 release, will be his last.

"I am engaged and 'Love King' IS going to be my LAST album!" he tweeted. In a subsequent post, The-Dream explained, "It is going to be [his] last bcuz, everybody is trying to 'KILL THE DREAM!' [The Dream is] the ONLY one that can end [his] career," although he did clarify he "will still be producing, writing, and featuring on other artist albums though."

During a video interview with Vlad.tv that has been making its rounds on the internet recently, The-Dream said he has finished recording three additional records for…

NY's Hot 97 to Play New Mariah Song "100%" Tomorrow!

Earlier today, DJ Envy of the radio station Hot 97 in New York, played the new Mariah song "100%" on his show!

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul will release her 9th studio album Stronger on November 24. The first single, “The One,” features Drake and can be seen in a new AT&T ad airing now.

“The album represents who and what I am right now,” MJB said on set of the commercial. “I’m a stronger human being after all the growing pains. It’s about life, love, change, strength—mostly really knowing who you are and being confident in that.”

The follow-up single will be the title track, “Stronger,” which can also be found on the soundtrack to More Than a Game. The documentary about NBA star LeBron James’ high school days in Akron, Ohio, opens October 2 in…

Throwback Video! Toya - I Do

A lot of people may not remember this song but it came out in 2001. 2001 was such an incredible year for music and just watching this video brings back a lot of fond memories for me. Toya was signed to Arista Records. At the time L.A. Reid was head of Arista and was either not promoting artists or dropping them off the roster. This song was a huge hit! Check it out!

Foxy Brown Performs Live In Connecticut

Last week Foxy Brown returned to the stage in Connecticut. The controversial performance has landed Foxy a lot of jeers in part to the crowd booing[reportedly over a woman who threw beer at Foxy] and Foxy's hearing aid repeatedly falling out. What a night! This seemed like a tough crowd but Foxy won them over eventually for the most part. It seems like her hearing aid would be more secure though. This explains why Foxy probably hasn't done many live performances in recent years. I think maybe she should do something more intimate and stripped down where she is not moving all across the stage and losing her hearing aid.

Mariah's Biggest Ooops!

Mariah Carey's oddest, weirdest, and most embarrassing moments are all here. Ooops!

Glitter
This one is for everyone who would of said "How did I forget Glitter?" Personally I liked "Glitter" for what it was so I don't really consider it an oops. I figure had it been someone else in the lead role people would of liked it more.

Micheal Jackson's Memorial
Mariah was not one to be outdone when her duet partner Trey Lorenz killed her on their rendition of "I'll Be There". Mariah sounded so horrible that she later apologized for her vocals and performance on twitter. Later on she said that she regrets the twitter cause it was not even about her that day. Of course in typical diva fashion she made it all about her.

Kelis just hit the jackpot in court today -- a judge awarded her a ton of money in her bitter divorce battle with estranged hubby Nas.

A judge decided Nas has to pay Kelis $55,000 a month in combined spousal and child support -- plus the mortgage on their L.A. residence.

The rapper also has to pay $35,000 to his worst nightmare -- Kelis' lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser.Well I am glad with the birth of Kelis and Nas' son, Kelis finally gets her cash out!

Put That Trophy On The Shelf!

These albums were either shelved by the record companies or they simply have yet to materialize.

Ill Na Na 2: The Fever by Foxy Brown
When Foxy Brown wouldn't conform to what record label honcho, Lyor Cohen wanted(dying her hair among other things), Foxy rebelled and in return Def Jam leaked her album and shelved it indefinitely.

Black Roses by Foxy Brown
It is a shame when you have two albums that have either been shelved or held up. Blame Foxy's hearing loss and possible record label woes for the hold up in production.

Welcome To Fantasy Island by Adina Howard
This album featured the underground hit, "T-Shirt & Panties". Adina's label at the time, Elektra had a reputation for shelving albums.

It was to be the follow up to Nicole Wray's debut album, "Make It Hot" but it never happened. Nicole Wray was also signed to Elektra Records.

Brooklyn Beef! Who Want That?!?!?

Jay-Z is on the tip of everybody's tongue with the September 11 release of his "The Blueprint 3" album. Now take a look at some of his most famous and even legendary beefs.

Foxy Brown
Foxy Brown felt wronged by Jay-Z on many occasion. Often time the rapstress claims that Jay-Z would appear spineless and desert her in her times of needs namely her going temporarily deaf.

Jim Jones
Jay-Z's style of dress would be a topic that many rappers would use against Jay-Z in disses and Jim Jones was certainly no exception. If you ask me, Jim Jones was somewhat obsessed with Jay-Z to me. Every chance he got he spoke of Jay-Z.

50 Cent
50 Cent's "How To Rob" name dropped several rappers including Jay-Z. The song a parody of itself offended many rappers which led to Jay-Z questioning "I'm about a dollar, what the fuck is 50 Cent?".

In an interview with English deejay Tim Westwood, Jay-Z took time to address several hot-button issues, the first of which was Chris Brown.

Jay-Z denied rumors that he had Brown's scheduled Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards canceled. "First, let me categorically deny that. That's not even my style. If I got a problem with Chris Brown, I got a problem with Chris Brown. I haven't said anything - I haven't said anything live, or behind the scenes. Whatever. I don't agree with what he did, and that's it."

Moving onto other controversies, Jay spoke about The Game, whom he mentioned in a freestyle live in concert, which ilicited a harsh response from the west coast rapper. Jay-Z was careful to point out that he in the freestyle that he was not talking about Game. "Tell g…

Kelly Rowland Talks New Album!
Former Bandmate singer turned solo star Kelly Rowland is currently topping charts across the globe with her smash single "When Love Takes Over", and now according to Billboard, the songs producer David Guetta has revealed that he will in fact be producing the majority of the singers upcoming third studio album.

It's looking less and less likely that Rowlands new album will be R&B like her first two efforts, especially in light of some recent comments she made to Billboard regarding Guetta.

"The current sound with urban and pop is just kind of dancing in circles, and nothing is going anywhere," Rowland says. "I was really kind of b…
