The rapper is staging quite the takeover this week.

For, beyond the striking shoot – which was shot by and features Karl Lagerfeld, Onika has unleashed new song ‘Rich Sex’ and is gearing up to drop Ariana Grande collaboration ‘Bed’ tomorrow.

More of Ms. Minaj awaits after the jump…


As slow burners go, few this year can rival the steady ascend of Khalid and Normani‘s scintillating hit ‘Love Lies.’

Released in the Spring, the track was ignited with a blazing performance at the Billboard Music Awards last month and has been scorching radio and streaming platforms ever since.

Maxwell is back.

The Neo-Soul pioneer has unlocked new single ‘We Never Saw It Coming.’

Aptly titled, the track launch comes as somewhat of a surprise, although the crooner had been cryptically teasing the title ‘The Glass House’ on social media.

As it turns out, ‘The Glass House’ is a dramatic short film designed as a vehicle for ‘We Never Saw It Coming’.

We wish we could tell you more about the Bush + Renz helmed visual, but it premiered on TIDAL and is currently sitting on the platform as an exclusive. So there goes that.

Thankfully though, the song has been made available more widely. Take a listen below…
