drake sets new record and stevie wonder reenters the charts and kelly osbourne quits 'fashion police'

DRAKE AND THE CHART MAN: So according to this weeks Billboard charts issued on Thursday, Drake has 14 songs that has simultaneously hit the charts. Among those songs are selections from his new album and of course his guest appearances including "Only", "Tuesday" and "Truffle Butter". This feat for Drake with 14 songs hasn't been done since the Beatles and it was 41 years ago. WONDER MAN: Speaking of charts, Stevie Wonder is back on the charts thanks in part to his CBS special "Songs In The Key of Life", the album which is back on the charts. The album was #1 on the charts back in 1976 and 1977. HAPPY FRIDAY: Speaking of music charts it is being reported that album will now be released on Friday instead of the traditional Tuesday. The move is said to start this Summer. Prior to Tuesday, albums were available for purchase on Monday. In the past some artists and labels went against the grain and released when they wanted to but Friday will be…

music video: jodeci - every moment

Jodeci is back with their new single and video for "Every Moment". It is from their upcoming album "The Past, The Present, The Future" via Epic Records. The group surprised everyone when they reunited at last years Soul Train Awards. So check out the video and let me know what you think!

missy elliott in studio with pharrell and kid rock sounds off on beyonce and azealia banks tours u.s.

IT'S A VIRGINIA THING: Missy Elliott is back in the studio with not only Timbaland but also Pharrell. The pair previously collaborated on Missy's last album The Cookbook which was released 10 years ago. Are you looking forward to Missy's new album? KID N PLAY: Well Kid Rock is looking forward to Beyonce to drop a "Purple Rain" track or a career defining song that as he feels the singer has yet to do so. The comments made along with some about Beyonce looks sent the #Beyhive into a frenzy and they went in on via social media. Kid was just speaking his opinion but apparently its an opinion that will cost him, to some extent but I'm sure he'll be fine either way. I APOLOGIZE: And Kanye West continues to display fine behavior as he recently apologized publicly via Twitter to Beck for saying the singer didn't deserve his Grammy award for Album of the Year. He also apologized for Bruno Mars for always hating on him but that was news to me because I didn…

flashback friday: jane child - don't wanna fall in love (music video)

Do you all remember Jane Child? She released her single "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" in 1989 on the Warner Bros. record label. I remember the video in heavy rotation on MTV and VH1. Jane had a distinctive voice as well as style. Check out the video which was shot in New York.

drake's second week numbers are in and madonna falls and zendaya criticized for her hair

I know I'm late on some of these stories, well at least the story about Zendaya but oh well. Here goes nothing..ALBUMS STILL MATTER: So Drake's second week sales are in and he sold 187,000 copies of his new surprise album/mixtape. Elsewhere on the charts Nicki Minaj's "The Pink Print" album returns to the top 10 thanks to a heavy rotation of singles on the radio. FALLING DOWN: The Brit Awards went down and there were a lot surprises. Madonna took a fall down some stairs and Kanye debuted a new song. Has anyone heard it and did you all see the Madonna video of her falling? It definitely looked painful. HAIR YEAH: And there were some painful words used to describe Zendaya(who was supposed to play Aaliyah) and her hair at the Oscar awards. On E!'s "Fashion Police", host Guiliana Rancic made comments about Zendaya and her hair saying she looks like she reeks of "weed" and "oil" and of course she caught flack for her comments. Rancic…

chris brown denied entry into canada and bobby brown called out and keyshia cole back with her husband

"TOUR" DE FORCE: Chris Brown's past continues to haunt him. The singer broke the news to fans today that he was denied entry into Canada, two shows which were sold out. Chris apologized to fans and promised to make it up to them, still some fans are very upset with the singer, rightfully so. But what else can the man do? He did the right thing on his part. Now some people have even dragged Trey Songz into the mix citing that the tour is all over the place but you still bought tickets though. Didn't you? "NICK" OF TIME: Speaking of Brown, Bobby Brown is feeling the wrath from Nick Gordon now who has reportedly been banned from seeing Bobbi Kristina in the hospital. Nick has said that Bobby is only in the hospital for publicity purposes and that Bobby has only seen Bobbi Kris 4 times in a 5 year span. This isn't surprising though because it was reported in the past that Bobby Brown and Bobbi Kristina had a strained relationship. Nick going in on Twitter …

common and john legend win oscar and big sean drops new album and nicki minaj on tour with meek mill

"GLORY" ROAD: Congratulations to Common and John Legend. The duo won an Oscar last night for Best Original Song for "Glory". I watched some of the Oscar awards but not much of it. I felt funny because I wasn't familiar with any of the movies nominated. I was wondering were the films nominated, films that didn't get a huge theatrical release because I was only familiar with "American Sniper". But anyway I turned back and forth between the Oscars and whatever else looked interesting on TV that night which wasn't much. Did you all bother watching the Oscars or did you pass on it altogether? PINK SKIES: In other music news, Big Sean will release his new album "Dark Sky Paradise" tomorrow. The album features the hit single "I Don't Fuck With You" featuring E-40. The album features appearances from Arianna Grande among others. Will you be copping? Meanwhile Nicki Minaj just announced that her and her boo Meek Mill(whose in t…

wiz khalifa mad at amber rose again and french montana in the studio with tyga's ex

It is really hard to keep up with the shenanigans of some of these celebrities. It really is but here goes. BIRTHDAY BOY: So Amber Rose didn't let Wiz Khalifa see his son for his birthday but what else is new? The couple, whose now separated have been going back and forth via social media. Contrary to claims made by Amber Rose on The Breakfast Club, Wiz Khalifa says he never cheated on Amber. So who do you all believe in this mishap? Frankly I'm tired of hearing about it and this just might be the last time I report anything about it. FRENCH KISS: French Montana was seen in the studio with Blac Chyna, Tyga's ex who is know with the Jenner girl and French who is with Khloe. I wonder how that conversation with Khloe and French will go down after Khloe sees that. Personally French Montana in opinion is too much of a playboy to be taken seriously. I don't know what Khloe is thinking and what Trina was even thinking for that matter.

kanye west fires back at amber rose and tlc raises money for new album

"OSCAR" THE GROUCH: So I was wondering how come so many musicians have Oscar parties? I'm assuming its because maybe their nominated for Best Original Song or something? I say this because Ne-Yo recently had an Oscar party and I think Madonna did too or in the past she has. Anyway I caught up on some much talked about interviews with Amber Rose and Kanye West who both appeared on The Breakfast Club days apart. Kanye was asked what the thought about Amber calling his wife "Fake" and Kanye replied that he had "to take 30 showers" after Amber to be with Kim and that was all he said. It was like he knew not to say too much because he didn't want to make the situation any worse and of course Amber replied on Twitter saying Kim "let Ray J nut on her", referring to the now infamous sextape. Personally what do you all think about this whole mess? I guess its interesting but after awhile things like this get old. And we all await the next epic b…

drake album debuts at #1 and chris brown under attack and trey songs plans album reissue

"READ" MY LIPS: As expected Drake's new album If Your Reading This Its Too Late has topped the charts selling nearly 500,000 copies. Many people are speculating that the once mixtape, now album was a bid for Drake to inch his way out of his contract with Cash Money a lot faster. What do you think? And what has your verdict been on the album? Well something the verdict is out on is Chris Brown as he and his lady stepped out in furs and PETA came calling and they are not happy with him. Chris' response was 'suck my dick'. Typical Chris Brown reply right? Well I will say let the man wear what he wants to wear or he'll likely kick your ass. Someone who is a close friend to Chris Brown is Trey Songz. The two are currently on the Between The Sheets tour. Trey Songz has announced that he will re release his album Trigga as "Trigga Reloaded". The album will feature the new single Slow Motion and the album will be available in April."Trigga" w…

amber rose and khloe kardashian beef on social media and toya wright mad at mtv

BLACK ROSE: So the hot story today is the beef between Khloe Kardashian and Amber Rose. Amber Rose made some comments about Tyga's relationship with Khloe's sister who Tyga is dating. Well apparently word finally got back to Khloe and soon her and Amber engaged in a war of words over social media. The war of words have gotten very ugly with varying celebrities taking sides such as Trina, Reggie Bush, Sanaa Lathan, and more. It seems as if the celebrities are siding with those they are closest to. So for Trina she sided with Amber Rose, not only because Khloe is with her ex-man, but because Amber said she's a big fan of Trina so rightfully so. If that ain't enough for you, Tyga will appear on The Breakfast Club tomorrow morning(Wednesday) to talk about that and I'm sure the recent dis Drake made to him on record. But back to Amber and Khloe, Amber so far has been winning the war of words, adding insults to not only Khloe but her boo French Montana, Kanye West, and …

azealia banks beefs with erykah badu and mila j enlists the dream for new album

WHAT'S BEEF: So let me take some time to stop stressing about the little things to bring you some music news. Erykah Badu was recently asked about Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks. When asked about Azealia Banks, Erykah replied, I "tried" to listen to her music. Of course word got back to Azealia who was likely internet trolling and called out Erykah saying she was "jealous" and a barrage of other things. It was quite interesting on Azealia's side as it always is. I just hope that Azealia Banks can fight because one day someone is going to want to fight her. Just saying and still love her though. Her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste will see a physical release on March 3 along with a "frisky" pictorial in Playboy arriving on March 20 that's said to "break the internet"(a term used saying that this will have everyone talking). I can't wait to see it and I guess I will also be buying my first issue of Playboy, believe it or not…

drake releases new album and keyshia cole goes indie and diddy brings out lil' kim

BIG SURPRISE: So the big news of the day is that Drake has a released a new album/mixtape titled If You're Reading This Its Too Late. The project which has debuted on iTunes features a Tyga diss on the song 6 PM and Tyga has already responded labeling Drake a "bitch". Now I've only heard a few songs from the new project but I don't have a huge interest in it so I'll likely be skipping it. However I do like Drake's How About Now song! THIS JUST IN: The new Drake project is said to debut atop of next week's chart with 500,000 copies. In other music news, Keyshia Cole says that Prince has influenced her to go independent for her next album. Prince even promised Keyshia a duet. How do you think that will sound? A Prince and Keyshia duet? Hmm. Well as we see independent seems to be the way to go for most artists these days and I'm not mad at it. I'm also not mad at Diddy and Snoop Dogg who brought out a bevy of artists to perform at Madison Square…

kanye acts a fool and snoop blasts grammys and missy back in the studio

So Kanye West has everyone talking again like he tends to do. This time people are outraged over his behavior at the Grammy awards telecast. When it came time to reveal the winner of Album of the Year, the winner was Beck(song: Loser). I personally hadn't heard Beck's album but I do know who he is. I can't remember who else was nominated besides Beyonce, who many thought was a shoe in for the coveted award. And that's what this is all about. Kanye started to storm the Grammy stage similar to how he did many years ago at the MTV awards, but he sat down before entirely gracing the stage. At the time the gesture was funny but now people are outraged and upset at Kanye and also people are livid over Beyonce's fans, the Beyhive for posting petitions and all that other jargon. I mean after all it is the Beyhive so what do you expect? The Beyhive rides hard for Beyonce. I will say I feel that Beyonce did deserve to win. Her album, upon its release was very successful and…

music feed: grammy show recap..so far

GRAMMY NIGHT: So good evening everyone! I'm sorry I haven't updated lately. You know I be meaning to but I didn't realize it has been six long days. Any who I'm sitting here watching the Grammys and trying not to fall asleep and I say that with the utmost sarcasm. I'm watching Annie Lennox perform a cover of I Put A Spell On You. I saw Beyonce and Jay Z win a Grammy for Best R&B Song for Drunk In Love. Now my question is why Jay Z ain't join on her stage? I mean its not just her award its yours too. But he's always pretty gracious when it comes to his wife as he should be. I mean Drunk In Love wining was a no-brainer right? It deserved it though. Madonna performed earlier and she did a pretty job. I can't remember the name of the song she performed but I'm guessing its on her new album Rebel Heart due in March. I forget that Madonna is 55 because say what you want about her, her body was looking really nice. But Madonna does keep in shape so it…

lil' wayne suing baby for $51 million and missy elliott steals the show and mariah carey caught lipping

Hey ya'll! So here's some music updates for you all! MONEY MAN: So Lil' Wayne is now suing Baby "Birdman" for $51 million dollars. Not only is Lil' Wayne suing for an advance he was supposed to receive for The Carter V, his upcoming delayed album, he also wants royalties from sales of Young Money's roster, Drake and Nicki Minaj. I heard all this today while I was watching Wendy. This is just starting to get messier and messier. Hopefully this situation works out and everybody is happy in the end. But don't expect that anytime soon. Maybe we can expect some new music from Missy Elliott soon. The rapper brought the house down when she joined headliner Katy Perry during her Super Bowl Half-Time performance. Missy performed her hits, Get Your Freak On, Lose Control, and Work It. I enjoyed her set and it does beg the question, is Missy releasing new music soon? Because I think it would be a great idea if she does. Why not capitalize off of the performance…

trey songz and iggy azalea called out, mariah carey signs to epic and jagged edge member arrested

SONGZ IN A MINOR: While gay rumors certainly didn't hinder his career in the past, Trey Songz lives up to his title of Mr. Steal Ya Girl and his title was recently questioned by labelmate Meek Mill. Meek posted on his Twitter that he has to ask a potential date if she's slept with Trey Songz insinuating Trey gets around. Trey responded knocking the notion and again sending a little shade a day or so later by saying that no one is "dry snitching". I believe that was a dig at Meek but what do I know? Something that I do know is that Mariah Carey has signed to Epic Records. This puts Mariah back under the Sony wing where her career began and flourished in the 90s. L.A. Reid is responsible for taking Mariah under his wing. Reid most famously worked with Mariah on her The Emancipation of Mimi album back in 2005. Wow! TEOM is actually 10 years old this year. My how time flies. Mariah's first project will be a re release of her #1's album which will feature some ne…

justin timberlake is having a baby and bobbi kristina is found unresponsive and suge knight in more trouble

Not only is Justin Timberlake celebrating a birthday, he announced that he and his wife Jessica Biel are expecting their first child together. Happy Birthday Justin and congratulations to you and Jessica. Well it looks like these days celebrities who beef with another love to get back at one another in some type of capacity, case in point. K. Michelle was seen on social media twerking to Safaree Samuels, ex-bf of Nicki Minaj's new song. When Safaree caught wind of it, he hailed the video and praised her hour glass figure, which is very similar to that of Nicki's. This was all in response to Nicki Minaj hooking up with Meek Mill, who was also messing around with K. Michelle and K claims Nicki Minaj stole her song, Buy A Heart featuring Meek Mill. Did you follow? Anyway on a sad note, Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub by husband(friend or whatever their association is) Nick Gordon. Bobbi was rushed to a hosp…
