At long last.

Today brings with it the release of Fergie‘s sophomore album ‘Double Dutchess.’

Billed as a “visual experience,” the set sees the Black Eyed Peas singer pair every track with an accompanying video.

In the weeks and months preceding its arrival, Fergie-Ferg offered previews with the clips for ‘You Already Know (ft. Nicki Minaj),’ ‘Hungry (ft. Rick Ross),’ and ‘Like It Ain’t Nuttin”.

To mark the unleashing of the LP in full form, she’s made even more available online. Namely ‘Save It Till Morning,’ ‘Just Like You,’ and ‘Enchante’ which features a special appearance from Kendall Jenner.

Watch all three below…

It follows, and directly plugs into, the earlier issued lyrical dance visual that arrived earlier this month.

The successor of summer smash ‘Swalla,’ ‘If I’m Lucky’ serves as the second single to be lifted from Derulo’s upcoming album ‘777.’

JAY-Z has already achieved a wealth of success with new album ‘4:44,’ but he’s not resting on his laurels.

The Hip-Hop icon jetted in to London to perform on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and showed up n’ showed out.

Jigga rocked the house with ‘Family Feud’ and ‘Encore’; he also sat down for an insightful interview with renown presenter Clara Amfo.

During the sit-down, Jay waxed honest about many corners of his life – including his motivations for still pushing his artistry and home life with Blue Ivy. 

He also opened up about raising a Black family in the US during current racial tensions, his next project, and a whole lot more.

All the action after the jump…

Melanie Fiona has returned.

Following the 2016 birth of son Cameron, the two-time Grammy winner is back with new single ‘Remember U.’

Afrobeats queen Tiwa Savage serves up a taste of ‘Sugarcane’ on her brand new EP.

A huge star on the African continent with hits such as ‘Kele Kele’ and ‘Love Me,’ the Mavin Music wonder also attracted global attention after crafting tracks for the likes of Monica and Fantasia.

That multi-faceted appeal attracted JAY-Z’s Roc Nation, who signed a management deal with Nigeria’s “Doro Diva” last year.

Steadily building a name for herself on a global scale, Savage will be releasing a new album next year.

To whet appetites though, she’s released this project. Speaking on it, she said:

“I actually never planned to release anything before my official album drops next year so this is a surprise for my fans. I have been in such a great space in the studio and I’ve been creating so much music so it felt right to put out this project. The title is Sugar cane because the music sounded different and sweet to me. With Afrobeats music, I can’t explain it in words you just have to listen and experience the magic.”

It’s finally here!

Who knew after Fergie blasted to #2 on the Billboard 200 with her 2006 debut solo LP, ‘The Dutchess,’ it would be over a decade before fans could get their hands on its follow-up?

Thanks to a number of false starts, pushbacks, and even a full-on leak, the serially delayed set – repeatedly promised at various points over the last few years – has finally made its way to digital outlets in full.  Christened ‘Double Dutchess,’ the 13-track set sonically picks up right where its predecessor left off by boasting a modern, yet eclectic mix of funk, hip-hop, and pop.

Tapping rappers Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, YG, and more for the ride, tuck inside for your first listen and let us know if it was worth the wait:
