Nicki Minaj is currently hard at work filming the video for her new single, ‘Your Love’, from her yet-to-be-named debut album. Between scenes the rapper spoke to MTV News and highlighted that the song, which is the 1st single by a female rapper (as a lead artist) in 8.5 years to hit #1 on the Billboard Rap chart, was actually not intended to be a single. Peep what she had to say below:
Kelis made a promotional stop on BET’s ’106 & Park’ yesterday. The innovative entertainer spoke about her role as a new mother and how that inspired her new album, ‘Flesh Tone’, which hit stores on July 6th in the US. Check out the interview below:
T.I. sat down for an in-depth interview with ‘FUSE’ recently.

T.I’s new studio album, ‘King Uncaged’, hits stores on September 28th. Peep the entire conversation below:
Ahead of the unique release of Prince‘s latest LP ’20Ten’ this Sunday, you can now preview several of the album’s tracks.
Take a listen to snippets of ‘Compassion’, ‘Beginning Endlessly’ and ‘Lavaux’ below…
Things appear to be going from bad to worse for struggling trio ‘Girlicious’. Ousting members, drug scandal, and poor chart performance, have come to characterise what was once-billed as the new Pussycat Dolls (not that that was ever saying much).
With their most recent effort ‘Maniac’ flopping on an epic scale (even tanking in their biggest market – Canada), the ladies will no doubt be hoping that new single ‘Drank’ sparks interest.
Check out the track below, which is set to feature on the soundtrack for MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore 2′ (classy, much?)…
R&B singer Teairra Mari is fast becoming synonymous with ‘the girl who never gave up’. For, following a number of unsuccessful attempts at denting the singles chart, and an album that has been pushed several times over, Mari has announced yet another new single in the form of ‘Body’. Peep the song’s artwork above.
With the 22 year old’s ‘At That Point’ album now being re-recorded in it’s entirety, it is currently unknown whether ‘Body’ is the lead single from her forthcoming mixtape ‘Point of No Return’ (due this month) or her 7-track EP ‘Sincerely Yours’ (due August).
Whatever the case, there seems to be no holding Ms. Mari back. Gotta love her hustle! That said, her label (Warner) seem to have quite deep pockets when it comes to this project. Just saying…
Ciara has added her own twist to Soulja Boy Tell’Em’s ‘Pretty Boy Swag’. The track, ‘Pretty Boy (Girl) Swag’, features Ciara tapping into her Urban roots and bringing her own swag to the record. Give it a listen below:
