Ariana Grande Reveals Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, & Future Will Feature On Her New Album

ariana grande bbc1 xtra tgj

In addition to enjoying the enduring hype surrounding the newly released music video for her latest single ‘Dangerous Woman,’ pop princess Ariana Grande is keeping her heels hot on the promo trail in support of it and its parent album of the same name (in stores May 20).

Most recently paying a visit to our friends at BBC Radio 1Xtra, the songstress dished on her new project’s conceptual direction and even name-dropped its expected features.  And, while we were already aware of the Future and Lil Wayne-assisted tunes aboard the set, Grande clued listeners in on what other big names there are to look forward to on the Urban Pop project.

“I like an unexpected feature…I don’t want to do the obvious,” she said.

In addition to adding ‘Bang Bang’ collaborator Nicki Minaj to the mix, find out what surprise guest you will find on ‘Woman’ when it drops in May:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Rihanna, Adele, & Justin Bieber Still In Top 5

adele thatgrapejuice justin bieber rihanna billboard 200

At this point all we can say is “wow.”

As we’ve reported over the last several weeks, Adele, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna have had a relentless control over the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 since their most recent albums (and singles from those albums) first burst onto the scene.

Addy and Bieber saw their ’25’ and ‘Purpose’ projects respectively released in November 2015 and have not once left the top 5 of the Billboard 200 since.  Similarly, since her first full week of sales, Rih’s latest number – ‘Anti’ – has yet to leave the chart’s highest quintet of positions.

The true test of their staying power was passed when not one, but two impressive debuts landed on charts in the form of Gwen Stefani‘s ‘Truth’ and Jordan Smith‘s ‘Something Beautiful.’ However, despite the sets bowing at #1 and #2 on the refreshed charts, not even the popularity of their respective offerings was enough to oust the trio out of the top 5.

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Rings In 6th Week At #1 With ‘Work’

rihanna drake thatgrapejuice hot 100 6th sixth week

‘Kiss It Better’ beauty Rihanna kisses yet another week ‘hello’ atop the Hot 100 with her top-selling Drake assisted single ‘Work.’

Dominating competition on every consumption source (streaming, digital download, radio, etc.), ‘Work’ shows little sign of slowing.

Via Billboard:

Just like on the Hot 100, “Work,” released on Westbury Road/Roc Nation, spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 31.6 million U.S. streams, down only 7 percent, in the week ending March 24, according to Nielsen Music, marking the track’s fifth straight week topping 30 million streams. Impressively, “Work” is just the second song to tally five weeks of at least 30 million domestic streams, joining Adele’s “Hello” (five weeks in November and December).

Will week 7 be the week the son’Work’ finally gets worked out of its comfortable perch? Time will tell. Until then, see where all your other faves landed on this week’s Hot 100 chart check:
