The hotly anticipated mixtape (due July 11th) features songs ‘Jumanji’, ‘Nathan’, and ‘Aquababe’, and precedes Banks’ eagerly awaited debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ – which hits stores in September.

As Roc Nation‘s latest priority (sorry Rihanna) Rita Ora is undoubtedly Pop’s fastest rising star- impacting the Billboard Hot 100 with her feel good number ‘Party’.

However, what some fans may not know is that despite debuting this year, Ora has been signed to the label/management company for some time- reportedly under the pupil-age of boss Jay Z and his wife Pop Queen Beyonce.

Now peep Rita dish on their relationship and the gift she bought their daughter Blue Ivy below…


In what can only come as great news for the Rapper, Nicki Minaj‘s new single ‘Pound The Alarm’ continues to soar on the UK Singles Chart this week.

Just as renown for her smash hit single ‘My Neck / My Back’ as she is for her outspoken nature, Rap belle Khia has made the quite the name for herself as a ‘Pop culture commentator’.

Peep Keyshia Cole performing her latest single ‘Enough Of No Love’ live at this year’s ‘Essence Music Festival’.

Despite struggling to live up to its recorded version, her ‘stage presence’ was enough to make up for the shortcoming, rousing the crowd with conviction and emotion we hope to find on her upcoming ‘Woman To Woman’ LP.


Not sure what we mean?

In 2007, after a short musical hiatus, TGJ-favorite Kelly Rowland showed those who had doubted her that she could in fact “bump like this”. Our pick for this week’s From The Vault comes in the form of her club-classic ‘Like This’

Produced by Polow Da Don and written by Sean Garrett and Rowland herself, the track – which features a rap verse by the amazing Eve – was released as the first single from her sophomore effort ‘Ms. Kelly’.

It peaked at #30 on the US Hot 100, a respectable feat if you ask us, still we are sure you would agree when we say it deserved an even higher ranking – as it is often the case with Kelly’s material. On the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart though, the tune managed to reach the 7th position and was her very first single to ever top the Hot Dance Club Songs tally. It also proved to be an international hit placing inside the Top 20 in Australia and Top 5 of the British and Irish charts.

The house party-themed accompanying visual, helmed by Canadian director Mike Ruiz does a stellar job capturing the carefree vibe of the song and at the time presented us with a brand new Kelly, a sassier and more confident Kelly. The performance bits are particularly stunning and the night-vision shots make for a nice addition.

With ‘Ice’ generating quite the buzz ever since its release last week and ‘Motivation’ standing as one of the biggest achievement of her career, let’s only hope the ex-X-Factor judge doesn’t forget to feed us with the club-bangers on her next project.

For as much as us and radios alike live for her mellow material, cuts such as this one, ‘Work (Put It In)’, ‘I’m Dat Chick’ or ‘Turn It Up’ as well as her more Dance-oriented tunes only testify of the diversity Ms. Kelly has to offer.
