kellz-trey-thatgrapejuice

This time just three years ago R&B crooners R. Kelly and Trey Songz were engulfed in a highly publicized beef.   Now, as Kellz prepares his newest album ‘Buffet,’ it appears he plans to cook up something else with his younger counterpart.

Recently taking to our buds at Hot 97, the ‘Ignition’ hitmaker struck quite the chord with the audience when he revealed his desire to do a full length duet album with Songz akin to his #1 joint release ‘Best of Both Worlds’ with Jay Z.

That, in addition to updates on his own album ‘Buffet,’ stories about his time with King of Pop Michael Jackson, the next chapters of ‘Trapped In the Closet,’ and more makes it safe to assume the next two years will be very full of the R!

Hot Topic: Could A Scandal Stop You From Supporting Your Favorite Artist? [Weigh In]

scandal thatgrapejuice

“An artist’s personal and/or moral failure has no bearing on his or her ability to do a job (singing, acting, etc.)” – an argument lent by many-a-diehard fan of stars embattled in scandals.

From the most recent controversies surrounding songstress Ariana Grande and entertainer Bill Cosby to King of Pop Michael Jackson and King of R&B R. Kelly, some of entertainment’s most celebrated faces have found themselves royally discharged by even their staunchest supporters after news broke of their involvement in an illegal or immoral dealing.

And, while some careers suffer temporary setbacks while others see more permanent mar, the truth remains: many of these offenders commit infractions that in no way changes their ability to perform nor does it negate any of their professional achievements to date.

As such, it begs the question:  how much should personal decisions affect one’s professional dealings?

Weigh In: Billboard Compares Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Era To Michael Jackson’s ‘Dangerous’

prism katy perry michael jackson dangerous covers thatgrapejuice

There are only two artists in music history to lift five Hot 100 #1s from a single LP – Michael Jackson and Katy Perry.  Via their ‘Bad’ and ‘Teenage Dream’ albums respectively, the duo launched a quintet of chart-toppers to the coveted tally on the hems of awe-inspiring music videos and very dedicated fanbases.

Jackson’s iconic hits spent a collective 7 weeks atop the charts while Perry’s forgettable modern pop offerings spent nearly triple that time reigning.  But, while the latter has his name etched in history books as the ‘King of Pop,’ Billboard thought it time to  remind fans that this pop princess’s impressive sales performance is by no means anything to downplay.

Indeed, it’s no secret that her domination of today’s charts knows few rivals.  But, just as the diva’s takeover of Superbowl XLIX’s halftime show approaches, the music Bible stacked up the pop titans’ follow-up records, ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Prism’ to see how well they compare to their respective preceding releases as well as each other’s.

Weigh In: Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

Top Three Selling Albums of The Year Were All Released In 2013

thatgrapejuice-collage

The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news:  not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.

Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.  We thought things were bad last year when only five albums went platinum, led by Justin Timberlake‘s ’20/20 Experience’ (which had sold over 2 million copies by last year’s closing).  But, this year’s looking to be much worse.

To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.

We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.
