Drake headed for #1 with new album and Khia drags Beyoncé and Beyhive claps back

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. Wh…

Beyoncé's fathers reveals who Becky is and Tank has a shocking confession

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 su…

Beyoncé dominates iTunes singles charts and Rita Ora is rumored to be "Becky"

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…

Beyoncé fans attack fashion designer who they think Jay Z cheated with

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 kn…

Beyoncé debuts album film and new album of the same name shortly after

As expected Beyoncé debuted her album film, "Lemonade" on HBO on Saturday and it immediately began trending on Twitter. The "Lemonade" movie which also serves as the title as Beyoncé's new album was inspired by the quote, "I was served lemons, but I made Lemonade" hence the title. The project revolves around Jay-Z's rumored infidelity which is told in equal parts songs and poetry. There is images of Beyoncé's own family including her Mother, Father, and daughter. There were special appearances from Zendaya and Serena Williams among others. Each song in the film is a song that appears on the album which appears in chronological order to the album sequence. I just actually finished watching the film and I thought it was really good. I really feel like it was some next level shit! I liked all the songs as well. Guests on the album include The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar. Production comes in the form of The-Dream, Mike Will Made It, and more. Immed…

Prince dead at 57

Today we learned of the untimely death of legend Prince. I was at work today when I head the sad news. At first we all thought it was a hoax but soon after reputable sources like People magazine and CNN confirmed his death. Prince was found at 9:47 a.m. in his elevator unconscious. 10:03 a.m. the singer was pronounced dead. Reports say that Prince had a drug overdose a few days ago and had to make an emergency landing while on his way home. The media reported that Prince had the flu and would be in the hospital. It was just announced awhile back that Prince was about to pen his memoir for release in 2017. He was said to had been 50 pages deep. He also acquired his music back from Warner Bros. and he was set to work on new music for the label. Expect a resurgence in Princes' album sales in the coming weeks. Prince will be remembered his bold style, his choice of women, his musicianship, his shade, and lots more. R.I.P.

Azealia Banks shades Beyoncé and DJ Quik disses Kanye West

Azealia Banks was caught shading Beyoncé on Twitter and of course the Beyhive went in, sort of. Azealia tweeted that the "queen" would be doing more bad acting. She joked! Of course the "joke" didn't go over too well with many but what else is new. I feel Azealia was telling the truth. Beyoncé is not a good actor. She didn't say she wasn't a good singer. She didn't say she was a bad performer. Anyway speaking of Beyoncé her "Lemonade" mini movie(or whatever its being called) will actually be available to everyone since HBO has a free preview this weekend. That's good so now I can watch it! In other news, DJ Quik criticized Kanye West saying his music is not as good anymore and referred to him as a "Kardashian". Ouch!

Rihanna rumored to be mad at Jay Z and Kanye West sued by fan

So there was a report I read that Rihanna was allegedly upset at Jay Z and Tidal for her recent album rollout of "Anti". Even though the album is now a hit, it was revealed the album only sold 460 copies its in first week. Tidal blamed a system error for the album leaking out two days prior to its release which resulted in free downloads of the album. In the coming weeks, Rihanna's album sales have benefited from her hit single, "Work" and her name alone. The album is approaching gold status so I think she'll be okay in the long run. I do agree with her if she is believed to be upset. The whole rollout of the album was very messy and lackluster. Speaking of album, The Game has revealed his new album will be titled, "1992". Not sure the significance of the album title since we know Game wasn't born in 1992. The cover art shows a young Game with a tattoo on his face much like Lil' Wayne did in the past. Are you looking forward to another ne…

Janet's baby news revealed and Chris Brown documentary set to air

Remember the announcement Janet made a few weeks ago about starting a family? Well now its being revealed that there are plans to have a baby through either adoption or a surrogate. Janet, who will be 50 in May will be a first time Mother, though rumors of the years have suggested she has a secret child. Janet has denied the claims. Meanwhile fans were upset at Janet for cancelling her tour! Chris Brown will have a documentary airing soon which details the singer over the years and the many headlines that's accompanied his career most notably him abusing Rihanna. Already people have been criticizing the documentary before it airs. In the clip, Chris says he's contemplated suicide which is interesting considering he criticized Kehlani for her suicide attempt saying he thought it was fake and for sympathy votes. An Aretha Franklin biopic may finally be in the works. The singer has been trying to get her biopic off the ground for years and there may be light at the end of the tu…

Foxy Brown upset club promoters and Iggy Azalea speaks on relationship status

Foxy Brown upset club promoters after failing to show up at the allotted time she was scheduled to perform. The promoter(s) went all in on Ms. Inga Marchand! They literally dragged her with insult after insult! Foxy was supposed to arrive at the club at 1 a.m. but did not show up until 4 a.m. after the club let out. No word from Foxy that I know of. Speaking of female rappers, Iggy Azalea took to social media to inform fans that she doesn't want to be questioned about her impending engagement to Nick Young. She does say they are still very much together despite the bump in the road the couple recently experienced. While we're on the subject of infidelity, Monica's husband Shannon Brown who's been accused of cheating just got in a car accident and wrecked his car pretty badly. Shannon is said to be okay and he took to social media to inform everyone to not believe everything we read. But obviously there is some trouble in paradise. Monica was seen not wearing her weddi…

Eve to tour with Gwen Stefani and John Legend and wife welcome newborn baby

Eve is headed on tour with her former collaborated Gwen Stefani. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen(sp) just had a baby! Congrats! R.I.P. to actress Doris Roberts who played on "Everybody Loves Raymond". Rihanna's "Work" featuring Drake is #1 on the Hot 100 for the 9th week. Beyoncé's short film is to be released this week on HBO April 23 9 P.M. EST and her accompanying album is said to be locked in for release this month, no one knows the date though except Beyoncé and her team. K. Michelle's music has been banned by some radio stations after her spat with Angela Yee on "The Breakfast Club". I watched the said interview and K. Michelle was really way out of line if you ask me. I feel she was just turning up for the cameras. She criticized Angela Yee for bringing up a story brought to her by rapper Uncle Murda who alleges K. Michelle has a stinky vagina! K. Michelle thought it was in poor taste for Angela Yee to bring it up. K. Michelle's mai…

Beyoncé previews new video and Prince hospitalized

Beyoncé just released a teaser for "Lemonade". The teaser is a mere 20 seconds and features Queen Bey in cornrows with her face hidden behind her arms. Beyoncé echoes "what I'm going to do now?" before flashing that the world premiere event will be telecast April 23 9 PM EST on HBO. Are you all ready? Sony Music UK reports that "Lemonade" is the new single from Beyoncé. Word is that the video is 2 hours long. It's also being speculated that Beyoncé may drop her album on April 24 but it could very well be on April 29 since that's a Friday and that's when albums are generally released but we are talking Beyoncé and Beyoncé makes her own rules when it comes to releasing new projects. But I was just doing some reading and I found out that "Lemonade" is being described as an "album movie". I'm guessing its all the songs from her album in one video and they all intertwine in some way. Who knows? But we will all know for …

Azealia Banks feuds with Wale and Future calls Ciara a "flop"

Azealia Banks might of made up with Erykah Badu but now she's feuding with Wale. The two had a heated exchange over the treatment of black women by black men. It is a topic that many can resonate with but things got a little too ugly if you ask me. Of course Azealia was trending on Twitter for her feud and not for her music but that's okay right? I don't know but I love Azealia and her music but I don't always agree with how she gets her point across. In other music news, Ciara and Future are at it again! Future now plans to countersue Ciara and went on to say that she is a "flop" with a "relatively large fan base". Ouch! But Future ain't lie though! Ciara's career hasn't been the same since she was with Future. Though her "Ciara" album didn't perform well commercially, the singles were huge hits for her. I will say Ciara always manages to have at least one big single from each of her 10 albums! :) Not many other artists c…

Azealia Banks and Erykah Badu end feud and Eve plans on recording new album

Azealia Banks and Erykah Badu have ended their feud over Twitter. Thank goodness! I thought it was a rather stupid feud anyway. I don't even remember how it started. Speaking of female rappers, Eve says she is working on new music after being inspired while filming her new movie, "Barbershop 3". Are we looking forward to new music from E V E. I am! Ciara was caught throwing shade at ex Future when she wouldn't announce his name while presenting the Billboard Music Award nominations. But ain't your baby named Future? What's the difference? It's funny though because I would of done something like that too. I'm petty! I remember BET did that to Mariah Carey when they wanted her to read J-LO's name on the teleprompter but she wouldn't. Haha! I hear they offering Rob and Blac Chyna money for a reality show. If this couple couldn't get anymore thirstier? Personally I feel like once Rob loses the weight, he's gonna dump poor Blac Chyna who n…

Lil' Kim backs out of show and Kanye West scores #1 album

Sorry for the lack of updates people but let's get right into it. I read a few days ago that Lil' Kim was supposed to be apart of DC Gay Pride show. The show was to include Foxy Brown and Remy Ma but all on separate nights. Immediately Kim came out and denied that she was apart of the fracas. Days later the promoters released documents sent to Kim's people where she was all set to perform and received her $12,000 fee. Once Kim found out that Foxy Brown was set to perform as well, Kim backed out. She returned the money and wanted to forget all about the show so that's why she initially denied she had anything to do with it. The promoters assured Kim that Foxy would perform the day after she did but Kim wasn't buying it and opted out. I haven't seen or heard a word from Foxy regarding this matter; she blocked me on IG. And Remy Ma has been busy promoting her new single. So what do you all think of this matter? Should Kim still have performed after finding out Fo…

Azealia Banks is threatened to be sued by Sarah Palin and Rob Kardashian engagned

Azealia Bank is at it again but what else is new? This time the rapper has targeted Republican politician Sarah Palin saying she needs to be "raped by black men". Azealia's rant was in response to a fake interview with Palin where she allegedly said something along the lines of "blacks are responsible for slavery". Palin shot back at Azealia and threatened to sue the rapper over her Twitter comments. Azealia has since apologized. What do you all think of Azealia's latest Twitter feud? SMH! I love Azealia don't get me wrong but just for her music. I don't agree with a lot of her political statements but she has an opinion like everyone else right? In other news, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, Tyga's ex is engaged. The couple has been dating for a few months. Blac Chyna is responsible for Rob's recent weight loss I believe. I really didn't see this coming. I figured that once he got back down in weight, he would also drop her but I guess …

Nicki Minaj accused of leaking Iggy Azalea fiancé cheating video

Is Nicki Minaj the culprit of the leaking the video of Iggy Azalea's fiancé Nick Young confessing to cheating on her? Well that's what reports are saying. It's also being said that Nicki Minaj caught the shade Iggy Azalea threw at her on "Watch What Happens Live". Iggy made a reference to Nicki Minaj having multiple writers on songs, when she claimed during an acceptance speech that she writes all her rhymes. This is the first time that I can recall Iggy actually throwing shade at Nicki but Nicki deserved it to be honest. Nicki has been throwing shade at Iggy for awhile and Iggy has always been supportive of Nicki. I feel like Nicki is somewhat threatened by Iggy's success because at one point it seemed like Iggy's success could possibly eclipse Nicki's. What do you think? Do you think Nicki had something to do with the leak of the video to Nick Young confessing that he cheated on Iggy Azalea?
