Fiery R&B siren K. Michelle is hot on the promo trail for new single ‘V.S.O.P’.

Her latest stop? Hot 97 radio, where she chatted it up with Peter Rosenberg, Ebro, and K. Foxx about her stint on ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta’, moving over to the New York franchise, her love life, her ‘Rebellious Soul’ album, and much more.

As ever, wherever K. Michelle goes, the LOL’s are sure to follow….


When J. Cole announced the June 18th release of his ‘Born Sinner’ LP, many conceded chart defeat on his behalf given the “event” that will be the same-day arrival of Kanye West‘s ‘Yeezus’. For others, the parallel roll out of such major releases serves a victory for Hip-Hop. Whatever the stance, one question has remained: was the move deliberate?

Well, wonder no more. For, in a new interview with Billboard, Cole confirms that the move was indeed calculated. Find out why after the jump…


Rita Ora stepped out with Calvin Harris once again last night, arriving at Alan Yau’s Hakkasan in London last night, as fans look forward to the release of her debut US LP.

Snapped leaving the high end spot to stock up on sweets, the Pop pair caught the attention of members of the paparazzi as they made their way home, shortly after the star returned from the US- reportedly on the hunt for fresh material.

With but days remaining until Jessie J debuts new single ‘Wild’, the Essex-bred-belter has given fans a preview of what they can expect.

The 24-year-old performed the cut acoustically for her Youtube audience this week, and while the recorded version (which features Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal) will sound “different”, you garner the taste and texture of  what the track will be serving up after the jump…


No stranger to controversy, Chris Brown will no doubt find himself at the center of fresh debate surrounding his use of an unreleased Aaliyah song.

As earlier reported, the stage blazer features the late singer on his new single ‘They Don’t Know’, which follows on from Urban hit ‘Fine China’. Both appear on C. Breezy’s forthcoming studio album ‘X’, which he has hailed a more marked return to R&B. And with Aaliyah occupying such a pronounced position within the genre, it’s a sure-fire way to elevate interest.

That said, we imagine the posthumous pairing will rustle a few feathers. After all, there remains uncertainty surrounding her family’s wishes for the vaulted material, as well as the fact arch-rival Drake had -up until now-been the main proprietor of bringing her music to a modern audience.

Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out!
