ne-yo to release new album in january and azealia banks releases physical copy of new album

WORK OF FICTION: Ne-Yo will release his new album Non Fiction on January 27. The album features the singles She Knows featuring Juicy J. Ne-Yo says Non Fiction will return him back to his R&B roots which he's somewhat abandoned over the years. I've heard Ne-Yo say this before so we'll have to hear the album to decide for ourselves. His first two singles have been R&B songs but to be honest I'm not really interested in an album from Ne-Yo. I would say his first two albums were good then after that he lost me. Thoughts? BANK(S) ON THIS: Azealia Banks will release the physical copy of her recently released album Broke With Expensive Taste on January 6. The album is available now for pre-order on Amazon. I was glad to learn of the news this morning since BWET is one of my favorite albums released this year, you will see my list soon for that. And that's all the news I have for now. Then again you know the weekends is usually slow for news unless something big a…

tyga gives back on christmas, rihanna teases new single, and wiz khalifa caught up

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving complete with food, liquor, and some shopping thrown in for good measure. If you didn't shop don't worry you didn't miss much. The deals were awful this year. Target was pretty busy since they had a TV that retailed for $110 and it was a 40" one. Had I not bought a TV last year and I had more money I probably would of been vying to get it myself. THANKS-GIVING: Now on to some music news, rumored couple Tyga and Kylie Jenner spent Thanksgiving feeding those less fortunate. And whose to say he won't be feeding into Drake when Drake releases a new mixtape this January. I'm sure the mixtape will feature a few jabs at his new label foe. 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD: Speaking of new music, Rihanna is rumored to drop a new album next month. She recently teased everyone with a snippet on Instagram with the hash tag #R8. REALITY VIXEN: And Rihanna is the only person teasing nowadays. It turns out former reality TV show star Deelishu…

chris brown girlfriend throws shade, wiz khalifa naked, and young thug getting married

SHADY PALM TREE: Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown's girlfriend set the Twitter world on fire yesterday when she tweeted she was a "single lady again". This prompted speculation that Tran was done with Chris Brown again. The tweet happened to come in right after it was announced that some groupie girl has Chris Brown on tape in her bed, complete with pictures and all. Of course some of Twitter's well known comedians came forward with some not so nice jabs at Tran but she fired back saying her tweet was about her starring in the show Single Ladies. So it turns out Tran, I'll prefer to call her by her last name more since her first name is too much to type was simply hyping up her latest acting role all the while throwing a little shade and it worked. WIZ KID: What won't work is Wiz Khalifa taking pictures butt ass naked in the shower and pouring bottles of water on himself. His ex-wife Amber Rose liked the picture, who seems like she's on a campaign to get him b…

the boy is mine not being remade and beyonce under fire for stealing video idea

BOY TOY: Jessie J, famous for her hit song Bang Bang has shot down rumors of her and Ariana Grande taking on the classic hit song The Boy Is Mine. Oddly enough I could see them taking on the song and giving it its own spin. Though I don't know how people will feel about them covering it but their too formidable singers. I think they could pull it off if it was handled correctly. Then again when you think about it some songs are meant to be left alone and that's how some people feel. On another note though people cover songs all the time. Why not cover the song if they want to? That's more money in Brandy and Rodney Jerkins pockets! Just do the song justice if you do cover it. That's all I'm saying. 7 YEAR ITCH: Some rapper guy has come forward saying Beyoncé stole his video idea for her current video 7/11. I mean this isn't the first time Beyoncé has been accused of such an act. I mean the guy who I never heard of, I can't even tell you his name right now. …

joe, ginuwine, jagged edge, total embarking on tour and nicki minaj wants to be a mommy

KINGS OF R&B: Joe, Ginuwine, Jagged Edge and Total will embark on the Kings of R&B tour in Europe in January. Why their not touring in the US I'm not sure. I'm guessing the money overseas is a lot longer than it is here in the States. I mean given also that none of the aforementioned acts are that popular in the State right now why not go overseas where music is much more appreciated. MOMMY TO BE: And Nicki Minaj says she wants to be a Mother by the time her fifth album is released or shortly thereafter. Nicki is currently set to release her third album The Pink Print on December 15. When asked on the AMA(American Music Awards) red carpet, Nicki said her fans will be surprised by the lyrical content on the new album. Could she be referring to the lyrics on her new single Bed of Lies? One can only imagine. I can't say I'm here for the new Nicki album. I will have to hear the samples on iTunes. Nicki's album is not one I'm anticipating.

trey songz turns 30, fat trel arrested, and usher brings the house down

MUSIC BITS: Trey Songz just turned 30 and the singer had a birthday bash that was attended by Chris Brown among others. Happy Birthday Trigga! People are saying T.I. and Tiny's daughter may have had her eye color changed like her Mother's but I haven't paid enough attention to care. Have you? Rick Ross' artist Fat Trel was involved in a car accident which left one friend hospitalized. When police showed up to the scene, he began acting belligerent and was eventually arrested. Poor thing! Usher brought the house down during his recent tour stop at the world famous Staples Center arena. Usher brought out Chris Brown, August Alsina, and Kid Ink(song: Body Language). Usher performed a slew of his old hits and some new music which will likely be featuring on an upcoming album. 

music video: Beyoncé - 7/11

Image
7/11 is the newest single and video from Beyoncé and its featured on the re-release of her double platinum album Beyoncé will be available on November 25. What do you think of the video? I think its genius. Beyoncé is definitely an innovator. No its not a groundbreaking video but its different and Beyoncé is having a lot of fun in it as we can see. I can truly admire an artist who goes left when everyone else goes right.

queen latifah show cancelled, monica wants to be a nurse, and trina turns down reality show

TALK SHOW SHIT: Queen Latifah learned today that her talk show has been cancelled after only two seasons on the air. The show was a snoozefest. Yes she had high profile guests but the magic just wasn't there and like someone else was saying online, Queen just didn't seem like Queen if you get what I'm saying. Hell I think her talk show from back in the day was better than this. Of course this isn't the end for Queen she's always had a career in music and even movies. Queen always has her hands in something. She executive produces Single Ladies which is being brought back by BET and Centric. She'll bounce back soon! NURSE MONICA: I heard this erroneous story about Monica wanting to become a nurse. I actually heard the story on Wendy Williams today and I'm like WTF. I'm all for Monica helping people but I guess if that's what she wanted to do why not but I think its a bit random. But when you think about the music business and it not being what it use…

eminem disses iggy azalea, nicki minaj on 'snl' and bow wow mad at black folk

DATE RAPE: Iggy Azalea is still feeling the heat even as her star continues to climb. Iggy's latest antagonist is Eminem. He raps on a new song titled Vegas where he threatens Iggy with rape. Iggy responded calling Eminem "old" for berating women. If that wasn't enough a fan asked Iggy to hop on a song with Nicki Minaj. Iggy replied saying "after reading the Billboard article I don't think she's a fan of mine". If you missed the Billboard article, it was mentioned that during Nicki Minaj's interview that Iggy's song came on the radio and she had her people cut it off. I guess its safe to say it will be awhile before we hear these two on a song if at all, not that I care to hear either on a record together anyway. If you need your Nicki Minaj fix, she will serve as the musical guest on SNL on December 6 just in time for the December 15 release of her new album The Pink Print. 'HOE' DOWN: Bow Wow is mad at the black community for their…

audio: faith evans - incomparable(album sampler)

Image
Faith Evans is releasing her new album on November 24. You can check out a sample of the album before its released and based on the previews, the album sounds pretty good. I'm surprised because I wasn't expecting much from this project but my hope in it has been restored.

'love and hip hop new york' returns in december and bow wow blasted by comedian

NEW YORK - A LOVE STORY: Love & Hip Hop New York will return to VH1 on December 15. I won't be watching. Speaking of LHHNY one of the castmates Erica Mena recently got engaged to Bow Wow. Comedian Tony Rock took to Twitter to blast Erica by calling her a "whore" and Bow Wow responded saying that he will see Tony face to face. Can you imagine that? 4 ft. Bow Wow standing up to 6 ft. Tony Rock? Now that's a show in itself. I mean to be honest Bow and Erica getting married is still a hard pill to swallow. I imagine we've seen worse things like the Aaliyah movie but I'm wondering do they have a reality show in the works? I mean Bow Wow is out of job now so I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. Oh yeah Bow and Erica are getting married this April. 

young money perfoming at the 'amas', ray j cashes out, and wiz khalifa's side chick is outed

FIRE STARTER: Nicki Minaj will perform her new single Bed Of Lies featuring Skylar Grey on this Sunday's telecast of the American Music Awards. If that's not enough Young Money star power for you, Lil' Wayne will perform his new single Start A Fire featuring Christina Milian. I think Start A Riot would be a better title for the song. I say that because it seems ever since Wayne and Christina started dating, all of Wayne's baby mother's have had something negative to say. I mean why do you care who he dates now? Your no longer with him. I think their all jealous. CASHED OUT: And speaking of jealous, some of you guys may be jealous of Ray J because when it comes to Kim K. he hit it first! And he is also laughing all the way to the bank. Due to Kim's racy Paper magazine cover, sales of Ray and Kim's salacious sex tape have skyrocketed. It's said that Ray J makes $360,000 a year off of the sales of the sex tape. SEX WIZ-ARD: While I'm on the subject of …

tamar braxton feuds with blogger and j. cole announces new album release

BLOG THIS: Tamar Braxton got into a heated exchange with blogger Sandra Rose on social media. The two traded jabs regarding Tamar's alleged abused past and "freedom of speech" among other things. If that's not enough Tamar Braxton news for you, the singer started following NBA star Matt Barnes on Instagram. Matt Barnes was once married to VH1 Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan. There is a story circulating around saying that Gloria was trying to put the moves on Vincent Herbert, Tamar's husband. I'm not too sure I believe that but then again you don't know what people are capable of nowadays. Even those who claim to be young and innocent. DRIVE THRU: J. Cole will release his new album 2014 Forest Hills Drive on December 9. The album just went on sale for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes. The rapper is holding a listening session on November 29 and 30 at the address. There will be no singles to support the album as of now. J. Cole's surprise release, whi…

solange gets married and kendrick lamar pays homage to method man on 'snl'

HERE COMES THE BRIDE: So now that everyone is somewhat over the disaster that was the Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B movie, I can feel free to move on to other things. The big news today is the nuptials of Solange and Alan Ferguson! The couple tied the knot today in New Orleans. Beyoncé, Jay Z, Tina Knowles, Richard Lawson(Tina's man), and Juelz(Solagne's son) were in attendance. There was no sighting of Mathew Knowles and his village of children. The Aaliyah movie wasn't the only thing that people were talking about last night. SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL: Kendrick Lamar was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night and his appearance which was a homage to Method Man circa All I Need To Get By. If you know anything about that Method Man looked crazy as hell. His hair was half braided and he had a white contact lens. Kendrick opted for black bubbly eyed contacts that looked a little scary if you were fortunate enough to see. If you didn't you didn't miss mu…

movie review: aaliyah: the princess of R&B

I think Lifetime should opt out of doing biopics unless it deals with some stylized murderer or serial killer. I don't think music biopics are their thing and they proved that last night. Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B which is based on the book Aaliyah: More Than A Woman aired last night on Lifetime. Before the movie's inception, there had been a storm of controversy from everything to who should play Aaliyah to Lifetime being involved in the movie's depiction. If that wasn't enough gossip maven Wendy Williams became executive producer. With Wendy being attached, we were sure we were going to get the goods but we got that and then some. What we got was a lot of bad acting, inaccurate storylines(to viewers anyway), and wrong choice of actors. None of the actors looked remotely close to who they were portraying. Actress Alexandra Shipp doesn't look like Aaliyah at first glance though I would say they look like they could have come from the same tribe. The depicti…

aaliyah movie to air on lifetime tonight and brandy reveals new album producer wishlist

ROCK THE BOAT: Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B movie is set to air tonight on Lifetime. Based on the previews I've seen the movie looks like one big joke. The acting looks very stale and since the family doesn't approve of the movie, Aaliyah's music was not used in the movie. Instead it was rerecorded by the actress Alexandra Shipp. I guess I will have to reserve my final opinion of the movie after I watch it tonight. At first I had no plans to watch the movie not because of the family's objections but more so because it doesn't look all that good. Then again its Saturday night and there's not much else on TV anyway so why not watch. While everyone is already unhappy with the making of this film, maybe one day another film can be produced more to the thrill of the fans and the family of Aaliyah. You have to think about the dozens of movies that were made about Nelson Mandela. There can always be another Aaliyah movie made in the future so just wait on that! B…

rihanna dropping new album, beyonce releasing new songs, and '106 & Park' cancelled

SURPRISE RELEASE: Rihanna may be dropping a secret album. At least that's what it looks like. The singer recently previewed 10 songs to her new label execs. Everyone is excited about the new music and Rih is ready to capitalize off it by possibly releasing it in the next few weeks. RING AROUND THE ROSIE: And speaking of dropping new music Beyoncé is said to be dropping either a new song titled 7/11 or Ring Off. Both songs will appear on a re-release of her double platinum album released last year. RIDE & PARK: Something that should of been done years ago is the cancellation of 106 & Park. I mean the show jumped the shark when AJ and Free were let go. I mean the show hasn't been the same since and BET finally woke up and smelled the coffee and cancelled what had become their signature show. The news of the cancellation was trending on Twitter as countless 12 years old boohooed and cried. Hey! Like I said I think the cancellation was long overdue. TYGA BEAT: And in the c…

usher has a sex tape, drake's nudes leak, and aretha franklin plans to sue

SEX ME: So Usher is said to have a sex tape in existence. The sex tape is said to be with his ex-wife Tameka Raymond. Four years ago Usher's car was broken into and a bunch of jewelry and other stuff were stolen. I guess one of those other things were this alleged sex tape. I'm with Wendy Williams' who was reporting the story on her show, I think Usher is trying to give himself more of an edge. I mean even if the sex tape doesn't exist just leak out a nude pic. Wendy also feels Usher is trying to drum up interest for the lack of ticket sales on his current tour. What do you all think? Or do you even care? NUDE DUDE: Speaking of nude pictures Drake's peen leaked out and it wasn't all that much to go on about. One of his stripper friends got mad at Drake and leaked his pic out online for everyone to see. I'm telling you now there wasn't much to see but if you like Vienna sausage you'll be amazed. TEENAGE SEX: And while I'm on the subject of sex, A…

omarion and tyga releasing new albums in december

SEX YOU UP: Plan on downloading some new music for the Holidays? Well look no further I got you covered. Omarion is releasing his new album Sex Playlist on December 2. The album features appearances from Jhene Aiko, Chris Brown and Jeremih. Omarion just celebrated his 30th birthday and a few months ago the birth of a baby boy, Megaa. Omarion can currently be seen on VH1's Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. THE GOLD STANDARD: Tyga is said to finally release his oft-delayed album The Gold Album on December 23. What label will The Gold Album be released under is anyone's guess. Since the fallout with Young Money, I'd be pretty surprised if they release it. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Who else is coming out with a new album? It seems like usually there are a lot of new releases around the Holidays but I can't think of anymore off top. Am I missing anybody? Or is there someone you all are looking forward to? Let me know or you can simply keep it to yourself! :-) 

album review: azealia banks - broke with expensive taste

Image
Azealia Banks surprised released her long awaited debut album Broke With Expensive Taste on November 7. Prior to the album's release Azealia blacked out her social media sites teasing fans and leaving many to wonder what she had up her sleeve. A few months ago Azealia asked her followers on Twitter when she should release her album and I guess she listened to her fans. Originally Azealia was planning to finally drop her debut at the top of the year. Boy I'm glad she didn't wait! Broke With Expensive Taste opens with the playful track Idle Delilah. The song is very 90s with the instrumentation and various change in genres. Gimme A Chance is very New York with its sample use and Azealia's flow. Desperado is perhaps one of my favorite songs. Azealia describes the song as a song for the "sophisticated caffeine drinkers" who "commute". The song is very fast in pace and the tempo changes throughout. JFK a duet is aimed at a pop star(Lady Gaga) who stole …

solange said to be getting married and nicki minaj apologized for nazi symbolism use

Solange is said to be getting married this weekend to her longtime boyfriend Alan Ferguson. Nicki Minaj has apologized for her use of Nazi symbolism in the video to her new single Only. Eminem threatens to smack singer Lana Del Ray(song: Video Games) "twice like Ray Rice" in new song and has ruffled a few feathers in typical Eminem fashion.

Tyga Arrested..Ginuwine Broke & Divorced..Aretha Shades

EYE OF THE TYGA: My gosh, if Tyga isn't already in enough hot water dealing with a minor, he goes and gets arrested during a video shoot. The rapper was hit with a traffic violation for reckless driving. I'm thinking that Jenner kid was giving Tyga head and he was swerving all through L.A. What do you all think? BROKE-N HEARTED: Ginuwine is broke and divorced and something tells me he needs to call Tyrese and Tank. The man needs money but I did hear he used to snort his money up his nose. While that was never proven, there was a live performance from TGT that surfaced awhile back and Ginuwine seemed pretty out of it if you know what I mean. I'm interested in knowing when exactly did Ginuwine and his wife breakup. They had been together for quite awhile and I figured they were still going strong. Didn't you? SHADY PALM TREE: Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul is not one to mince words. When asked in a recent interview what she thought about some of the newer divas, she …

Yung Berg Fired by VH1..Tameka "Tiny" Harris in Trouble With Sorority

JAIL BERG: Yung Berg has been fired by VH1 indefinitely. His firing stems from the assault on his girlfriend at the Love & Hip Hop reunion. I think it is funny though how Benzino and Althea were fired for fighting and Stevie J and Joseline were not. I was team Stevie J and Joseline but fair is fair. They should be fired too even though they make the show. It has been rumored that Stevie J and Joseline may have their own spin off show. What do you think about Yung Berg being fired? Do you even care? I mean I really don't cause I didn't watch. TINY BIT OF TROUBLE: But did you watch when Tameka "Tiny" Cottle-Harris threw up the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority sign. It's said that your not supposed to do that if your not apart of the sorority. Tiny says it was a joke but many didn't take it that way and went in on her via Twitter. You can't get mad at her if she didn't know. If she did know then that's one thing. Tiny has it pretty hard. She's alwa…

Nicki Minaj Loves "Sex"..Jeremih Gets Turned Down

BILLBOARD BOUND: Nicki Minaj is on the latest cover of Billboard magazine. Sorry no picture. In the cover story, the rapper says she likes to "have sex", admires Beyoncé, and her team turned off Iggy Azalea's song when it came on the speakers during her interview. No surprise there now is it? SOUL 2 SOUL:The Soul Train Music Awards went down last night in Las Vegas. The show will air on November 30 on BET and Centric. There were appearances from Mase, Faith Evans, Flavor Flav, Jodeci, Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott, Da Brat, Tyrese, Tank, Chris Brown, and many more. TURN DOWN 4 WHAT: Jeremih is under investigation for causing a scene in a restaurant. When he and his people were hitting on a waitress, she refused the advances. When she informed her management and they promptly asked Jeremih and his entourage to the back of the restaurant to finish dining, they label the manager racist over a mic. Perhaps Jeremih is feeling himself being that he has a pair of Top 10 Pop singl…

Diddy Gets Huge Gift From French Montana..Azealia Banks Surprise Releases Debut Album

French Montana bought Diddy a Cadillac Escalade for his 45th birthday! Azealia Banks pulled a Beyoncé and released her album Broke With ExpensiveTaste via iTunes. Ray J's former assistant and Teairra Mari got on the radio to expose Ray. Morgan claims Ray J hit her in front of her child. Nick Cannon and Amber Rose were partying it up with Nelly for some festivities. Beyoncé penned an emotional letter to new mom Kelly Rowland congratulating her on the birth of her baby boy, Titan. But made no time to speak of the rumors of her being high at the basketball game. Then again Beyoncé doesn't respond to rumors anyway. Though she may address them in a remix song down the line. And that's all the news I have today in a nutshell. For more on these stories you can hop on one of the other blogs. See what I just did there. I gave them some free promo just as long as you come back here! Ha! Have a good night everyone and enjoy! Thanks for reading and visiting! 

Beyonce On Drugs..Kelly Rowland Gives Birth..Yung Berg Arrested

Beyoncé is looking high and not low. Chili is still looking for love on reality TV. These are just some of the happenings going on in the entertainment industry. HIGH MILE CLUB: One of the big stories that broke yesterday was news of Beyoncé's rather strange appearance while courtside at a basketball with her husband Jay Z. The singer was seen being chummy with Jay Z and later swaying back and forth in a daze. Many people are speculating that the singer is strung out on drugs while others have come to her defense. Me personally I think she was high off of something, maybe high off of love, maybe that will be her next song with Jay Z. She simply may of had a tune in her head and couldn't get the melody out of her head as someone suggested. Have you all seen the video and what do you think? BABY LOVE: Speaking of Beyonce, her sister Kelly Rowland just gave birth to a baby boy Titan yesterday morning. It is the first child for Kelly and her husband. Congrats to the couple! DRUNK…

Beyonce To Release Box Set..Rick Ross Goes 'Hood' On New Album

They include the original audio CD, the original DVD, a live performance DVD, and a CD that features new and unreleased music. Also on November 24 Rick Ross will release his seventh album Hood Billionaire. Guests include Project Pat, Snoop Dogg, K. Michelle, R. Kelly, and more.

There is no release date for his album but he recently released the video to his single "i". Other albums to look forward to this Holiday include Nicki Minaj's The Pink Print due on December 16. And speaking of pink print, let's hope Nicki Minaj doesn't get fingerprinted. According to TMZ the racy rapper got into a heated argument with her gay ex-b…

Chris Brown Claps Back at Tamar Braxton & Adrienne Bailon

CLAP BACK: Chris Brown has clapped back at Tamar Braxton and Adrienne Bailon of The Real. Tamar said that because Chris Brown is young and famous, he can get away with cheating. Adrienne Bailon chimed in and said that Karrueche Tran's friend reap the benefits of her being with Chris Brown. When Chris got wind of this, he went in on both hosts via Instagram. Chris referred to Tamar as a "muppet" and ridiculed her for her plastic surgery. He also let Adrienne have it calling her a "thot" who slept around with married men and the like. There was much more but I think I mentioned the best parts. For the rest of Chris' rant you will have to check out his Instagram before he deletes it. You know Chris Brown goes in on a bitch then deletes the posts moments after. CRAZY LOVE: We have a new couple alert and its none other than singer Luke James and Bang Bang singer Jessie J. The two were canoodled on Instagram proclaiming their love. If that ain't enough Instag…

Rihanna Back on Instagram..Chris Brown & Karrueche Tran Expecting

INSTA-GLAM: Rihanna is back on Instagram. That's news considering the singer had been blocked from the famous social media picture app for her controversial pictures. BABY LOVE: Speaking of Rihanna, Chris Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran are reportedly expecting a baby. Though I'm not sure how true this is take it with a grain of salt. And in a recent interview Chris Brown confirmed that he lost over 20 million dollars after the Rihanna debacle a few years ago. He says now those same opportunities have come back to him. Let's just hope he behaves and with that being said he will be off probation come January. EX-GIRLFRIEND: In the ongoing beef between Tyga and Young Money, Tyga's ex Blac Chyna has been flirting with Drake on Instagram. She's been posting seductive pictures luring the very thirsty rapper who wants to smash his labelmate Nicki Minaj so bad. Nicki know Drakes wants her so they might as well fuck and get it over with, Lil' Wayne too. Did I f…
