After soaring all up, through, and across Houston’s NRG Stadium at last Sunday’s Super Bowl 51, Lady Gaga has taken similar flight on sales and streaming formats.
Seeing her latest effort, ‘Joanne,’ jump to #1 on iTunes album charts just an hour after her set finished, its latest single – ‘Million Reasons’ – mirrored the move by moseying to the perch of the iTunes singles charts (click here to read more).
Now, analysts are trying to forecast how those numbers will translate to Hot 100 and Billboard 200 placements. And, if their predictions are on the money, Gaga will be making a serious shakeup on next weeks charts.
An ever dapper Justin Timberlake will be gracing this year’s Super Bowl with a commercial spot for Bai.
The 37-year-old chart-topper, whose most famous Super Bowl link is that history-making incident with pop queen Janet Jackson, is looking to give viewers a new reason to associate him with the Super Bowl: an epic advertisement.
Taking to Twitter to give fans a taste of what to expect before the ad’s February 5th unveiling, tuck in below to see what Timberlake is serving:
‘Nobody Knows Me Better’ gospel singer Vicki Yohe should’ve known better than to so avidly announce her support of President Trump and his policies over the weekend.
On the same day a record 2.9 million women marched worldwide to convey a message of complete disapproval for the recently inaugurated businessman, Yohe – a white gospel singer with a strong Black following – took to Twitter to salute the ‘Apprentice’ star and ended up getting schooled by some angry followers in the process.
In fact, the dragging was so merciless she turned her timeline off to protect it from further harassment. See it inside:
Given today’s festive focus, the latest instalment of From The Vault comes courtesy of the Christmas Queen herself, Mariah Carey.
We give you 2010’s ‘Oh Santa!’
A “classic Christmas with a modern twist”, ‘Oh Santa!’ picks up exactly where the singer left off with her biggest hit ever ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. Lyrically, it remains a call for help that she issues Santa’s way. Her wish? That he brings back her lover in time for the holidays.
Produced by frequent collaborators Jermaine Dupri and Bryan Michael Cox, it was the first single from the belle’s second Christmas album, the aptly titled ‘Merry Christmas II You’.
Commercially, the cut reached the number one spot of both the US Adult Contemporary and US Holiday Digital Songs.
Pregnant with “dem babies” at the time of shooting, it didn’t stop the elusive chanteuse from showing a little bit of skin… and we love her for that!
Directed by Ethan Lader, the video with its 60’s mise en scene displays Mariah and her band performing the song to a cheering variety show audience. Much like OutKast in ‘Hey Ya.’
No other pop star has left their mark on Christmas time quite like Mimi has.
With an annual Christmas residency, TV Movies and holiday specials aplenty, it will be interesting to see just how far her and team will continue to push that sleigh in the years to come.
In the meantime, we wish you and your loved ones a happy Christmas.

If you thought “singer,” “songwriter,” “dancer,” “actress,” “workout guru,” and “producer” were the only hats the multi-talented Kelly Rowland wears, it’s time you got introduced to her newest one: author.
As was announced today, the diva has teamed up with her personal OB-GYN, Dr. Tristan Emily Bickman, for the release of her first book, ‘Whoa, Baby!: A Guide for New Moms Who Feel Overwhelmed and Freaked Out (And Wonder What the #*@& Just Happened).’
