tweet-album-cover-tgj-600x600-thatgrapejuice

Ten…long…years.

Indeed, it’s been a decade since talented songbird Tweet blessed the industry with a new project. And while such a lengthy spell away from the limelight (in an official capacity) would dissolve the strongest of fanbases, it’s made hers even more steadfast.  This feat is evidenced by the critical reception of her comeback single ‘Won’t Hurt Me’ (the kickoff release from her January 2016-due album ‘Charlene’).

In this candid interview with That Grape Juice, the soulful stunner talks her hiatus, the state of R&B, compromising her sound, her new album, and much more. As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.

Get them all below:

‘Creed’ K.O’s Competition With $42 Million Debut / Michael B. Jordan Talks Exclusively To That Grape Juice

Award Winning Actor Talks To TGJ About Hit Movie

‘Creed’ dealt a dynamite blow to all box office projections this week.

The boxing flick, which continues the ‘Rocky’ legacy, capped off with a five-day domestic total of $42.6 million.

Impressive on a number of fronts, the figure is particularly noteworthy because it means the Michael B. Jordan film bests initial estimates ($35 million) by a considerable margin. What’s more, the sum sees the movie (which smartly co-stars Sylvester Stallone) become the most successful ‘Rocky’ movie launch of all-time – topping the $21 million debut of Stallone’s last stint as lead [2006’s ‘Rocky Balboa’].

With industry analysts predicting a $100 million eventual total for ‘Creed’ (which had a $35 million budget), its 29-year director Ryan Coogler and all involved have much to smile about.

That Grape Juice’s Megan Thomas caught up with Michael B. Jordan at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere. Watch above as he gushes about the role that’s set to blast his star into the stratosphere.
