Rihanna really wants that #1 album doesn’t she?

Of course, though Roc Nation‘s bid to ensure she secures the top spot on the ‘200’ has been faultless thus far, efforts by One Direction, Keyshia Cole & Taylor Swift continue to make that chart feat look all the more unlikely.

However, that hasn’t stopped the Pop pretender from keeping hope alive. For, on November 24th, she will hit newsstands across the us via the above cover of ‘Billboard‘.

The latest bid to push sales of her ‘Unapologetic’ LP, here’s hoping her spread in the mag is just as telling as her stint in ‘Vogue’ earlier this year.

Your thoughts?

…and they say Hip Hop is dead.

In a day where many performers struggle to live up to commercial expectations, it’s safe to say that Young Money’s Drake is one of a few exceptions.

Second only to mentor Lil Wayne with regards to pulling in Hip Hop numbers, the Rapper has now seen his star power secure fellow MC 2Chainz his first single to move over 1 million copies, digitally.

There are clearly many stops on Ne-Yo‘s ‘R.E.D’ promotional train. Indeed, the R&B maestro has adopted a no-show-untouched approach to the push for his fifth LP, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 this week.

The stage blazer’s latest stop was E!’s Chelsea Lately last night. Watch below as the ‘Let Me Love You’ singer dishes on the album, fatherhood, and a whole lot more with ever-hilarious host Chelsea Handler.


Who could forget how inseparable Omarion and Bow Wow were once upon a time? Indeed, wherever one went the other was close behind. The friends even released a rap-sung album in the form of ‘Face Off’ in 2007.

However, as the hits dried up, so too it seems did their friendship. Publicly, at least.

This year, though, has seen the former teen stars re-embrace one another; first performing at Bow’s ‘Underrated Tour’ in June, and yesterday standing side-by-side as they reminisced about the good ol’ days on BET’s 106 & Park.

Upon its explosive debut in the UK, Rita Ora’s debut album ‘ORA’ received an impressive promo boost in Paris last night, when the singer arrived in the city to perform at the ‘VIP Room’.

Meeting many a Parisian ‘Bot’, Ora’s set consisted of the project’s stand out numbers, armed with a live band and arrangements that shine an even better light on both her voice and her material itself.

With a cool 1 million copies sold worldwide, Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ is- as far as her fans are concerned- one of the year’s strongest releases.

However, by way of ‘niche’ cuts like ‘Beez In The Trap’, the project has undoubtedly failed to the grip to the casual listener in the way her debut, ‘Pink Friday’, did back in 2010.

Now, the Rapper hopes to right this wrong with the release of ‘The Re-Up’ this Monday, packing 8 new numbers in addition to the original numbers on ‘Reloaded’. 8 new numbers, that include the brand spanking new number ‘High School’, featuring Lil Wayne.

Girls Aloud blazed back onto the Brit-Pop scene last month with fierce new single ‘Something New’.

Released as the lead offering from their retrospective LP ‘Ten’ (due November 26th), the track has garnered praise aplenty for its accompanying video – which finds each member in fine form; arguably the finest they’ve been as a collective yet.

Now, on the eve, of the track’s release, the group have offered a behind the scenes look at the making of the Ray Kay directed clip.

Ke$ha keeps her ‘Warrior’ themed party amped with new song ‘C’Mon’.

“Unlocked” by the singer herself today, the track features on her sophomore LP, which roars into stores next month (December 4th).

Preceded by lead single ‘Die Young’, it appears the album is set to be Dr Luke-flavoured – juding by this latest musical slice.

The Queen of Contemporary R&B Keyshia Cole enlists ‘Rain On Me‘ belle Ashanti for what we’d call the duet of the year, ‘Woman To Woman’.

Since the arrival of 2011’s ‘Born This Way‘, many a critic has called on Lady GaGa to ‘lighten up’ following what some might call a confused era- lacking the fun factor that pushed her to superstardom.

Now, our  their dreams have finally come true with the hilarious Rap number ‘Cake‘ and the mini clip that came in aid of it hours ago.

Today, the singer teased fans with the cut even further with the above snap shot by Terry Richardson, showcasing her erm…cakes, arriving with the following message:

Truer words have never been spoken. Pick up GaGa’s new album ‘ARTPOP‘ when it hits stores next year, but until then…
