Now, after all of that, he’s left his Young Money mentor, Lil Wayne, in the rearview with a jaw-dropping record.  Find out what inside:

Singer Runs the Media Gambit & Talks Hot Topics Along the Way

Trey Songz’ 7th album, ‘Tremaine’ (released March 24th), zoomed to #2 on iTunes top 100 albums chart within hours of its release.  Granted, some of the set’s highlights like ‘Animal,’ ‘Song Goes Off,’ and ‘Nobody Else But You’ deserve some credit for their role in assisting, but the feat is undoubtedly due in greater part to his aggressive promo schedule.

Touching both sides of the pond in just a matter of days, Songz’ has hit GQ, Hot 97, Beats Radio 1, BET, and, of course, his now infamous Breakfast Club interview, all in support of the new LP.

Queen Of Hip-Hop/Soul Is Back!

Mary J. Blige is finally ready to showcase the ‘Strength Of A Woman.’

The Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul was initially set to release the album last December. Yet, few can fault her for any delays given that she’s still in the midst of a divorce with soon-to-be- ex- husband Kendu Issacs.

Powering through her problems, MJB has previewed the LP with taster singles ‘Thick Of It’ and ‘U+Me’ and will be bringing the full set to the table sooner than folk may think.

Pharrell Williams’ Childhood To Be Adapted For New FOX Musical

Pharrell Williams‘ foray into the film industry has proven to be effective.

Since penning ‘Happy,’ the infectious theme song set to the animated film ‘Despicable Me 2,‘ the super producer has found himself in the comfortable seat as a household name.

But throughout his quarter century career, Pharrell’s personal life and upbringing in Virginia Beach has always been a mystery of some sort.

That’s all set to change soon, though. Because the 43 year-old has reunited with FOX, the studio he worked with on the Oscar-nominated ‘Hidden Figures,‘ for a film based on his childhood.

Grammy & Oscar Winner Takes Latest LP On The Road

John Legend is hitting the road.

The Grammy and Oscar winner is bringing his latest album ‘Darkness and Light’ to audiences across the globe.

Aptly, the trek has been christened the ‘Darkness & Light Tour.’

Released last December, the set yielded moderate hit ‘Love Me Now’ and upcoming single ‘Surefire.’

Since the LP’s roll-out,  Legend more omnipresent than ever. Indeed, there’s been the high profile performances, lucrative synch deals for a number of songs from the project, and a sizeable role in box office blockbuster ‘La La Land.’

He also recently teamed with Ariana Grande for a remake of the ‘Beauty & The Beast’ theme song.

In an industry less defined by the charts than before, he continues to prove that success is relative and winning comes in many flavours.

Anyway, enough of our rambling. Initial dates await below…

Final Numbers Are In: Drake’s ‘More Life’ Sold…

Rapper Sets Crazy Streaming Record!

Nabbing 2016’s best-selling release in the form of his blockbuster LP, ‘Views,’ was quite the double edged sword for rapper Drake.  On one hand, the Grammy-nominated set laid claim to the impressive title by beating out some of music’s biggest names (Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye West, etc), but on the other hand the pressure was on its successor to match or surpass its impressive stats.

Now, after a full tracking week of his latest effort – ‘More Life’ – it appears the challenge was met head on.

As we reported here, the playlist was predicted to be greeted with sales equivalence of no less than 500k – a feat achieved by unprecedented streams.  In fact, reports have it the 6 God’s latest effort has been streamed over 380 million times worldwide (yes, that’s 50 million more than the record-setting ‘Views’).  With streaming and impressive sales together, ‘More’ has not only secured the rapper the best first week sales of the year, but his “playlist album” is the second best-selling project released this year overall.

Nicki Minaj Claps Back At Trey Songz?


Trey Songz felt the sting of Nicki Minaj’s swarm of fans after critiquing the rapper in a recent interview.

Speaking on The Breakfast Club, the R&B playboy implied that Minaj’s guest feature on his song ‘Bottoms Up’ helped propel her career to new levels (and heights ironically higher than his).

He also took aim at Onika for coming at him after Remy Ma suggested he bedded her in the diss track heard around the world – ’Shether.’

Now, the head Barbz in charge is biting back. Albeit subtlety.

See what we mean below…
