ariana-grande-fallon-thatgrapejuice

Ariana Grande is still hot on the promo trail in support of her forthcoming 3rd studio LP ‘Dangerous Woman.’

As the album’s title track clings to the top 20 on the Hot 100, you can expect to see the pop princess pop up on your television and radio to continue her quest to return it to its former top 10 glory.  Her latest stop came on last night’s ‘Fallon’ where she not only delivered a dynamo performance of the tune, but also gave an interview where she dished on its parent project (in stores May 20), her modeling dog (Toulouse), and so much more.

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rihanna Resigns From #1 After 9 Weeks

'Panda' Pounces To Top of Singles Chart

rihanna thatgrapejuice  9 weeks #1 billboard hot 100

After an impressive 9 consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100, Rihanna‘s 14th #1 single – ‘Work’ – has finally taken a bow from the tally’s perch.  Dethroned by Desiigner‘s ‘Panda,’ the song’s 9 frame reign fell just one week short of matching her personal best (see:  2011’s ‘We Found Love’ which was on top for 10 consecutive weeks).

However, fans shouldn’t worry for too long.  For, as ‘Work’ works its way down the charts, the swift ascension of its successor, ‘Needed Me,’ may see Rih back on top before she knows it.  Until then, check out this week’s full chart check – singles edition:

Iggy Azalea Still Under Twitter Attack After Saying The Term ‘Becky’ Is Racist

iggy-azalea-thatgrapejuice-beyonce-becky

It looks like Azealia Banks isn’t the only rapstress in trouble for sharing her opinion on some aspect of Beyonce‘s sixth album ‘Lemonade.’

Once dodging Twitter attack for “cultural misappropriation” and referring to herself as a “runaway slave master,” Aussie rapstress Iggy Azalea is now finding herself on the opposite end of the heated “racism” argument – now pointing the finger at terms she deems racially offensive.  Joining the conversation as the #Beyhive continue their search to pinpoint the “Becky” referred to in Bey’s controversial tune, ‘Sorry,’ Iggy Iggz weighed in on the term’s usage all together.  After she asserted its offensiveness, the #Beyhive weighed in to give her…well…even more reasons to be offended.

It’s safe to say, like arch nemesis Banks, Iggy should’ve kept her word when she promised to leave Twitter:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Prince Blocks Rihanna’s Return To #1

Late Pop Icon Blasts To #1 On Strength of One Day Sales

prince-2016

Given the send off a music royal of his stature deserves, Princewho passed away unexpectedly last week (April 21) – has jumped to the top of the Billboard album charts with his ‘greatest hits’ project.

Also occupying the #2 spot with his magnum opus ‘Purple Rain,’ Prince’s reign over the Billboard 200 is all the more impressive considering the lack of streaming availability afforded his projects.  In other words, if it was as widely available as its nearest competitors, the damage he would’ve done to charts this week would almost be unfathomable.

Alas, with a whopping 179,000 and 69,000 equivalent albums moved respectively (all on the last day of tallying last week), the sets hop over the week’s previously projected competitors for #1 & #2Rihanna‘s ‘Anti’ and Sturgill Simpson‘s ‘Sailor’s Guide To Earth’ – for the wins.

Leave it to Prince to go out on top.  Tuck in below to check out this week’s full chart check:

Azealia Banks Slams Beyonce’s #Lemonade: ‘She’s A Thief’ [#ICYMI]

Rapper Accuses Bey's Project Of Being Bad For Black Women

beyonce lemonade azealia banks feminist

Earlier this year Azealia Banks vowed to take a permanent hiatus from Twitter.  However, as our good sis Jazmine Sullivan once wailed, ‘forever don’t last long.’

For, in a move to redirect #Beyhive stings from the mysterious Beckies of the world to herself, Banks took to Twitter to rant about Beyonce‘s hotly-selling new project ‘Lemonade.’  Accusing the songstress of being ‘anti-feminist’ and even plagiarizing some of the album’s critically acclaimed content, Banks is reaching for wig glue after questioning the validity of some of ‘Lemonade’s insinuations (namely those surrounding Jay Z‘s alleged infidelity).

Do you agree with her rant?  Or, is it just ole AB looking to cash in on some media shine?  You tell us:
