Cardi B has Rihanna‘s stamp of approval!

The femcee’s debut album ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ easily serves as one of the year’s most hotly anticipated releases – and with sound reason.

Led by the blockbuster ‘Bodak Yellow,’ the LP’s release signifies more than an “album debut” – it’s the formal coronation of a bonafide star.

Bronx bred Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, has fuelled her unparalleled momentum by guesting on a number of chart-igniting collaborations including ‘Finesse’ with Bruno Mars. Combined with her huge social media popularity, it’s made for the perfect storm of buzz leading into the arrival of the LP.

With the set being showered with praise from fans and critics alike, Ms. Fenty is the latest to give her a salute (following shout outs from the likes of Missy ElliottOprah, and Green Day).

Her congratulatory post awaits below…


Sailing to new creative ground is the R&B singer/songwriter Elijah Blake.

The purpose of his journey? The creation of his new project KaraJishi which he created with the performer Ben Strick.

Together, the pair team up to release the song ‘Give up the Ghost’ and celebrate the arrival of a creative partnership they hope will push the envelope artistically.

We really want to push the boundaries of what modern pop music can be. We’d like to change the game a little, by combining our two styles and making this music accessible. We’re mixing Elijah’s R&B side with my sort of weird, progressive metal and rock, to make something completely new.

As the world’s highest-selling female rapper much is made of Nicki Minaj‘s ability to compete with a new wave of Hip-Hop starlets hoping to soar in a lane she carved out for herself.

Now, after Cardi B urged fans not to buy into claims that the ladies are feuding, Minaj has received praise from music lovers after a report published by the platform ‘MNR’ (and substantiated by TGJ’s sources with ties to both ladies) revealed that she delayed the new release of new material to support Cardi’s.

There’s a baby #Bardi on board!

Congratz are certainly in order for Miss Cardi B, who made her ‘SNL’ debut aboard tonight’s episode and (if we must say so ourselves) absolutely rocked it!

Bringing out stunning renditions of her hits, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ ‘Bartier Cardi,’ and more, the Grammy-nominated rapstress set the New York-filmed variety show and its audience alight then topped off the night with the reveal of her baby bun.

Zayn is zooming towards the release of new music and hitmaker Timbaland is whetting appetites.

The pair have been working together on the former One Direction singer’s sophomore album – which serves as the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Mind Of Mine.’

Despite a rocket-fuelled launch courtesy of chart-topper ‘Pillow Talk,’ solo stardom has been an uphill battle for the 25-year-old who’s been candid about his struggles with stage anxiety.

Having revealed that he’s now in a better space, Zayn’s readying a second swing of the bat and has been locked in the lab with Timbo in hopes of securing his next smash.

It’s officially Drake season!

Drizzy dropped new single ‘Nice For What’ – with a video too featuring the likes of Tracee Ellis Ross, Tiffany Haddish, and Issa Rae.

Ebro Darden‘s thriving ‘Beats 1’ platform welcomed the Hip-House superstar Azealia Banks to its home hours ago.

There, the performer spoke to the tastemaker about her new single ‘Anna Wintour’, why she is unwilling to unpack her problem with Cardi B with men, and why she is eyeing a summer release of her double disc project ‘Fantasea II: The Second Wave.’

What else she discussed? The eclectic nature of her new music, why she feels rejected by Hip-Hop producers and why she feels the producers Machine Drum and Lone are part of her legacy.

An anthemic cut sure to heat up radios across the U.S., the Noah “40” Shebib-produced tune – which samples Lauryn Hill‘s ‘Ex Factor’ – sees its bid for chart dominance amplified as the rapper has called on a host of celebrity friends (Tiffany Haddish, Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, and more) to assist as stars of its accompanying video.
