Get into the teaser for ‘Spartacus: War Of The Damned’, the latest season of the hit STARZ series.

Picking up from its explosive last season -which saw fans say goodbye to Lucretia, Ilithyia and Claber to name just three- this season marks the last in the series and is currently in production.

However, in a bid to whet the appetites of their longstanding fans, today saw the network release behind the scenes footage from the show, giving some insight into what they can expect.

Enjoy below…


neyo r.e.d

Last night saw R&B force Ne-Yo preview his latest collection of hits – a set he has christened ‘R.E.D’.

A stylized acronym for ‘Realizing Every Dream’, the LP is important for more than serving as the star’s 5th studio album.

His last outing ‘Libra Scale’, spawned hits, yet little in the way of commercial nor critical acclaim. Blessed with a fresh and firmer slate by way of his new deal at Universal Motown (where he also serves as SVP of A&R), the 32 year old is gearing up to release the set (his first on the label) on September 18th.

Assembling a who’s who of the British media in Central London, the hitmaker provided a 7-track taste of the opus – which was preceded by a glowing endorsement by Ethiopia Habtemariam – the Senior Vice President of Motown Records.

Our exclusive preview of ‘R.E.D’ awaits after the jump…


As the man cited for introducing the world to a then 19 year old Ciara, Jazze Pha‘s work prior to their quiet split remains just as celebrated today as it was then.

Unable to recreate the star’s success with any of the other performers he subsequently nurtured, Pha- despite his synonymy with her more successful eras – has become public enemy #1 to much of her fan base who question his motives trying to sue her in 2008.

Now, he has weighed in on her career by way of HipHollywood.

His comments below…


For fans of Mary J. Blige & D’Angelo, this Summer is set to be nothing short of epic.

Yes, while that word is a used a little too much, it’s the only one fit to describe the union of Mary J.Blige and D’Angelo for the ‘Liberation Tour’.

Set to kick off this August, the venture is also set to welcome ‘4am’ gem Melanie Fiona who will join the pair for select dates.

So, is the show coming to your city?

After weeks of anticipation, today saw No Doubt release a snippet of their forthcoming single ‘Settle Down‘.

While there’s been an effort by some Pop sects to downplay her commercial success, there’s no denying Nicki Minaj‘s pull on charts the world over.

Not sure what we mean?

Well, watching her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ rise 118 UK spots in the space of two weeks in the UK, its predecessor  ‘Starships’ break the US chart record for spending the most consecutive weeks in the Top Ten, the Rapper welcomed more good news hours ago.

For, in what extends her lead as Pop’s highest selling debutante, the MC’s first album ‘Pink Friday’ has been certified Gold in the Philippines for shipments of 10,000 copies.

Awarded with a Gold plaque during her visit to the nation, her latest feat arrives before the launch of her UK arena tour this winter.

A tour, which will make her one of the only Rappers of any genre to headline at London’s 02 Arena.

In case you hadn’t noticed, No Doubt are back!

Yesterday afternoon, the retail company Target found itself in hot water when news of their refusal to stock Frank Ocean’s ‘Channel Orange’ LP emerged on LP.

Citing his decision to release the project to iTunes one week before initially scheduled as their cause for doing so, their rumored affiliations with anti- LGBTQ organisations led many to believe this was not the case.

This, because Ocean had revealed he had  been romantically involved with another man aged 19.

Now, the company has hit back at these claims by way of Billboard Biz.

It’s finally here!

Azealia Banks has today drawn the curtains back on her hotly anticipated mixtape ‘Fantasea’.

Without further adieu…

Your thoughts?


Lil Kim may have turned ‘insert flattering age here’ today, but it seems she isn’t the only Rap diva with cause to celebrate.

Indeed, in what might put a dampener on her celebrations, today saw her brief acquaintance / long time wig snatcher Nicki Minaj extend her lead as Rap’s reigning chart Queen- landing herself  in  US Chart history books.
