Azealia Banks has never been one to mince her words.

Indeed, and perhaps even to her detriment, her outspoken nature has made the one  to watch when it comes to airing out thoughts on anything related to her genre, or rivals.

Today, following an attack on Kreayshawn, she has weighed in on fellow newbie Iggy Azalea.

Since bursting onto the scene 8 years ago, JoJo has been hailed as having a voice well beyond her years.

However, now 21, the Boston native is keen to embrace her young womanhood on forthcoming album ‘Jumping Trains’. Case, point the set’s new promo single ‘Sexy To Me’.

Produced by Danja, the titillating cut (which had been floating around in demo form for some time), ushers in a much more risqué JoJo.

Eclectic crooner Miguel is proving himself to have quite the hustle.

Having established himself as a potential force with breakout album ‘All I Want Is You’, the 25 year old bridges the gap between that LP and his upcoming sophomore set  with ‘Art Dealer Chic, Vol 1’.

A free, 3-track EP, the collective will no doubt whet appetites ahead of a meatier effort later this year.

Soulful songbird Melanie Fiona continued along the promo trail last night, stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform  current single ‘4AM’.

The stirring cut, which we can’t get enough of here at TGJ, has had a slow ascend since release in August. Yet, in rather apt timing (given next month’s release of its housing album ‘The MF Life’), the track is picking up  (and fast) at Urban radio . A bounce-back which has seen the cut rise to #11 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B tally.

Tyler Perry continues to silence his naysayers with success that cannot be denied.

The Atlanta-based actor/screen-writer saw his latest effort ‘Good Deeds’ generate $16 Million at the box office on its first weekend. A figure meaty enough to secure the flick, which also stars Gabrielle UnionPhylicia Rashad, and Thandie Newton, the #2 slot.

And while it’s worth noting that Perry’s ‘Madea’ movies are renown for opening with $20 Million (double its average production cost), ‘Deeds’ has indeed held up well, given that it doesn’t feature the much-loved matriarch.

More power to Tyler. We just hope this success helps facilitate a new, more varied array of movies under his corporate umbrella.

In any cas, peep this week’s US box office chart below, via The YBF:

1. Act of Valor, Relativity/Bandito Brothers, $24.7 million

2. Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds, Lionsgate, $16 million
