As the commercial and critical acclaim continues to roll in for the first ever authorized documentary about the rise and fall of music’s most spectacular voice, the late Whitney Houston, her family – namely her mother/singer Cissy Houston – continues to grapple with some of the revelations made in the flick.

In addition to addressing the pop icon’s introduction and consequent addiction to drugs, believed battles with her sexuality, and more, one of the most shocking reveals of the film was her alleged childhood molestation by cousin/singer Dee Dee Warwick.  Cissy reportedly did not find out about the allegations until she saw the film’s final product.

With fans still reeling from the alarming news, the 84-year-old has joined her famous niece, Dionne Warwick, and taken to press to address the hoopla and refute a number of the claims made in the film.  Read their lengthy statement in full inside:


Before Ty Dolla $ign delivers the first tastes from his reported forthcoming duet album with Teyana Taylor (click here to read more), the rapper/crooner is serving fans a listen to offerings from his joint project with Jeremih.

The album, titled ‘MihTy‘ (set to feature the likes of Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and more) has yet to score a release date, but tunes from its track list are already getting the video treatment.  The first from the set?  ‘The Light.’

See it below:


As reported, rising star Stefflon Don serves as the only female featured in the XXL Freshman Class Of 2018 — and is the first woman in over three years to do so.

Keen to prove that she’s more than a pretty face, the British-Jamaican stepped into the spotlight for a special cypher feature in celebration of the certified salute.

Appearing alongside fellow honorees YBN Nahmir and Wifisfuneral, the 26-year-old (who is set to drop new mixtape ‘Secure’ on August 3rd), showcased her flavorsome flow.

Watch Steff set it all the way off after the jump…


Guess who’s hitting the road!

Childish Gambino is ready for the summer and makes it that all sorts of clear with the surprise release of the ‘Summer Pack EP’

Bundled together on streaming services ala Drake’s ‘Scary Hours’ set, the newly hatched tracks are ‘Summertime Magic’ and ‘Feels Like Summer.’

The songs are both breezy and a marked departure from socially reflective chart-topper ‘This Is America’; they also serve as the latest taste of Gambino’s RCA Records debut (due later this year).

Interestingly, neither are the studio version of the still-elusive mystery track the star performed last month on SNL.

What is certain, though, is that they both await your listening below…


Congratulations are in order for Cardi B and Offset!

For, the Hip-Hop couple have announced the birth of their first child together – a daughter born yesterday.

Ariana Grande makes for an arresting sight on the August cover of ELLE Magazine.

Rocking platinum colored tresses, the songbird will no doubt be hoping sales of new album ‘Sweetener’ glow a similar color upon its release next month.

Since bursting onto scene as a teen, the star has blossomed into a woman and is uber eager to use her platform to share more than candy-coated chart treats. And she stresses this in a feature interview.

Discussed during the candid chat were her views of Pop stars and politics, her thoughts following the terrorist attack at her Manchester show last year, and  more.

Lil Kim is sending out a reminder that time nor motherhood have tamed her hard-hitting style with the new single, ‘Nasty One.’

Already making noise on international markets, the cut – a dancehall-inspired gem – is believed to be a taste of what she’s been working on for her first effort since 2016’s ‘Lil Kim Season.’

Curious what she’s serving up?  See inside:


Ariana Grande has many wins under her wig, but thus far a chart topper on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart has managed to elude her.

Indeed, despite consistently coming close with a succession of #2’s, the second spot has thus far been her peak on the coveted count.

With new album ‘Sweetener’ due next month, all eyes are on her commercial performance. Especially given her raised profile over the last year.

For Ari, however, she’s more content than bothered.

Camila Cabello struck solo gold (and Platinum) with her breakout smash ‘Havana’ and isn’t done capitalizing on the hit just yet.

And despite hurdles and hardships, she’s still going strong and is charging on to her fourth studio album.

She also opened up about the direction of her upcoming LP, de-stigmatizing mental health, and more.
