R. Kelly is to face more turmoil, trials and tribulations this year after a documentary, set to air tonight, is to lift the lid on his alleged abuse of African-American children and teens.
Good news for his concerned critics below…
Despite some of last week’s competition (namely Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line) narrowing the streaming and sales gap between them, Drake still managed to hold on to the top of the Hot 100 for another week with ‘God’s Plan.’
Giving the rapper his 9th week overall, ‘Plan’ – thanks to over 68 million streams, 44,000 paid downloads, and strong radio airplay – keeps its grip on the tally’s perch. The stats also give Drizzy yet another unique entry into Billboard history books.

The British are set to invade the newest episode of ‘Lip Sync Battle’!
Calling on stage-blazing beauties from our side of the pond, singers Charli XCX and Rita Ora are due to go head to head in a battle paying homage to some of today and yesteryear’s biggest British hitmakers.
Even tapping Boy George to act as guest DJ for the episode, #LSB went all out to assist Charli with her transformation into ‘Shape of You’ singer Ed Sheeran while Ora gave the audience what they really wanted as Scary Spice of the Spice Girls.
Before you tune in on March 29 to see if they did the songs and their original performers justice, look below for a preview to the shenanigans:
Cardi B‘s link to rap outfit Migos is well-documented thanks to her relationship with member Offset.
Now, the femcee’s closeness to the clan is veering into professional territory. Because, with just a week to go before her debut album ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ arrives in stores, it’s been revealed that the star has signed to the group’s management.
Turning 30 is a major milestone for most and Big Sean was sure to mark his moment in a major way.
The rapper hosted an elaborate bash, which was attended by friends, family, and musical mentors.
Case in point Sean’s Roc Nation label-head Jay-Z and superstar wife Beyonce.
The Carters kept it low-key at the Los Angeles event, but were sure to pose it up with the ‘Bounce Back’ MC and his clan.
It marks the first sighting of music’s first family on home soil since their four-day video shoot in Jamaica. Word is that their trip was tied to their upcoming ‘On The Run II’ summer stadium tour.

Word is that a third, ‘Me So Bad,’ is due this Friday.
Before then, the 24-year-old aims to amplify buzz with the reveal of the LP’s official tracklist.
