He may not exactly be at the top of everybody’s ‘favorite rapper’ list any more thanks to his controversial opinion(s), but what certainly hasn’t changed is that all eyes and ears are always on Kanye West‘s next move.  Proof of this can be found in the anticipation for the Grammy-winning star and his sextape specialist wife Kim Kardashian teaming up to take on the rest of the Kardashian clan on a forthcoming episode of ‘Family Feud.’

‘Toxic.’  That’s how singer Ariana Grande described her relationship with ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

‘The Way’ creators, who went public with their relationship in 2016, made headlines earlier this month when it was announced they’d quietly split (click here to read more on that).  Now, they’re back in headlines after Grande responded to a fan who criticized her for breaking up with the rapper and suggesting she’s the reason he relapsed on his sobriety and drunkenly drove his car into a utility pole.

Is the #MuteRKelly campaign 30 years too late?  There’s one person who definitely thinks so;  R. Kelly.

The R&B legend is seen in a recently surfaced video addressing the ongoing campaign – supported by fellow celebrities, industry insiders, and music lovers alike –  calling for the removal of his music from popular streaming platforms.  Weeks after the hashtag first began making its rounds, Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music all answered the call in favor of his detractors (click here to read more).

Unsurprisingly, his supporters struck back by helping boost his streaming numbers on the platforms who continue to play his music. With all the hoop-la continuing, the ill-timed video suggested that Kelly directed his ‘too late’ comments to his most recent accusers.  His team says he was referring to the music platforms who have abandoned him.

Will the third time be the charm for Z2 – the sophomore effort of pop crooner Zayn?

The bid for a chart-topping single saw his soaring, Sia-assisted ballad, ‘Dusk Till Dawn,’ peak in the Hot 100 top 5 while its follow-up, ‘Let Me,’ peaked at #20.  Now, conceptually picking up where ‘Dawn’ left off, the former ‘One Direction’ star has unveiled ‘Entertainer.’

A Drake-inspired breakup anthem, the 25-year-old unveils a not-so-family friendly music video (see: strippers) to assist the cut’s climb up charts.  Will it do the trick?

The #BardiGang undoubtedly rejoiced at news Cardi B was set to drop not one, but two music videos this month (click here to read more) to keep the momentum of her chart-topping debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy,’ continuing its invasion of the Billboard 200’s top 10.
