Trey Songz Readies ‘Anticipation 2our’

2011 saw pouted lip performer Trey Songz drop from charts three mixtapes to tide fans over until his fifth studio release (aptly titled ‘Chapter 5’) later this year.  Now, in a bid to truly amp fans up for his return, Trigga is taking his talents to the road on his recently unveiled ‘Anticipation 2our’.  Drawing its name from Songz’ two famed mixtapes (‘Anticipation I and II’), the wintry trek is also reportedly called ‘The Chapter V Tour‘ on some billings.

Joined by up-and-coming rapper Big Sean, the ‘Panty Droppa‘s’ roadtrip presently only boasts a five-date run but word has it more dates will be added soon.

Find out if Songz will be bringing his greatest hits to a venue near you after the jump:

The-Dream: “I Made $15 Million From Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella'”

In case you didn’t know, songwriting is a very lucrative business.

So lucrative, that while recent years have seen many acts have fall prey to bankruptcy and other financial woes, the writers they enlist to pen their material have gone on to become- in many instances- even more financially secure than some of the industry’s highest paid executives.

Take serial chart topper ‘The Dream’ for instance.

Responsible for Beyonce‘s ‘Single Ladies’, Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby‘ two name just two, the singer-songwriter has risen to become the go to man for any in need of a hit.

Now, he has revealed just how much he earned for penning Rihanna‘s 2007 hit ‘Umbrella‘ and air out his thoughts on ex wife Christina Milian, all during a recent appearance on ‘The Tim Westwood Show‘.

Keri Hilson Rocks Ivory Coast; Donates To Orphanage

Say what you will about Keri Hilson, one can’t knock her charitable efforts.

The ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ singer flew out to Ivory Coast over the Holidays to perform. However, it was a visit to the La Caza children’s orphanage which touched the star most.

Speaking on the experience, Hilson told Okay Africa:

“Yeah, my favorite part by far was visiting La Caza — an orphanage for children who lost their parents in the civil war.  It was a really emotional experience and great to get to see the kids smile. For the holidays, I’m sending them over packages of bookbags, t-shirts, sunglasses, notebooks, and even an electric keyboard!”

—————————-

Kudos to Keri for using her star-power for a worthwhile cause. Not enough artists do.

50 Cent Has Twitter Melt-Down / Declares: “I Don’t Think I’m Going To Live Much Longer”

Five years ago, 50 Cent had the world – quite literally – at his feet. Fast forward to today and the climate is altogether different for the former chart-topper.
