“Love is the only way. You can hate yourself while someone else is saying, ‘You can’t. You won’t. You never will.’

These are the words of a certain Mary J, Blige in her feature spread in November’s ESSENCE magazine.

The Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul covers the publication in support of current album ‘The Strength of A Woman’ and new Netflix movie ‘Mudbound.’

Due on the streaming service November 17th, the flick explores racial division in post World War II Mississippi.

Hotly tipped for Oscar glory, you can check out the trailer by clicking here.

We’re totally here for MJB making her mark in multiple arenas. She’s long established herself as an insurmountable force; hence it’s awesome to see her working it (and werking it) during this trying time (see: divorce).

Your thoughts?

It goes without saying that it’s been an exceptional year for both Solange and Bruno Mars. 

Hence, it’s fitting that the singers lead the pack of talent in the nominations for the 2017 Soul Train Awards.

Solo stands tallest with 7 honors, while Bruno blazes the scene with 6.

Both have achieved gargantuan success with their projects ‘A Set At The Table’ and ’24k Magic’ projects respectively.

Toni Braxton will also be bestowed with the coveted  Don Cornelius Legend Award, while SWV will receive the third annual Lady Of Soul Award.

The prizes are set to be handed out on November 5th at Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena, with the ceremony itself airing on BET on November 26th.

It’s no secret that MTV’s 2017 reboot of ‘TRL’ has been a miss with critics and viewers.

As reported here, the daily series premiered to a staggering 166,000 viewers on October 2nd.  To put that into context, that figure is less than half of the viewership that led it to its 2008 cancellation.  While some blamed the unfortunate Las Vegas terrorist attack (which also happened on Oct. 2) for the cause of the low ratings, others pointed to the show’s new format, hosts, time slot, and so much more.

Whatever the cause, ‘TRL’s ratings have only declined since its premiere.  As of Friday (October 13th), only 123,000 tuned in.

Despite the discouraging figures, execs at MTV – namely its president, Chris McCarthy – are “incredibly optimistic” about its future.  Read about this and more from his telling sit-down with Billboard inside:

If the commercial performance of ‘Beautiful Trauma’ is anything to judge by, it’s apparent P!nk did not come to play.

The singer-songwriter, hot on the promo trail in support of her 7th studio album, has already seen the project greeted with critical acclaim from the likes of the industry’s top critics.  As we reported here, that fanfare was set to be reflected commercially as well as the project was initially predicted to impact charts with a whopping 300-360,000 units moved its first week.  If proven true, ‘Trauma’ would have already come in as the year’s best premiere numbers for a female.

Now, with a little help from her promo run (including stops on ‘SNL’ and ‘GMA’), industry insiders have revised that projection upward as its sales activity has outpaced their original forecast.
