Britney Spears‘ efforts to uplift the LGBTQ community have been recognised and honoured by GLAAD at a star-studded awards ceremony held yesterday evening.

Full story below…



SZA‘s breakout success over the last year has seen the songstress shape-shift from underground darling to mainstream magnet.

Debut album ‘CTRL’ has served as the primary vehicle and has driven the TDE talent to the top of the music mountain – racking up endless accolades including Grammy nominations and RIAA plaques.

The singer celebrates her whirlwind success a-front of V Magazine‘s summer 2018 edition, which serves as the publication’s “music issue.”

Beyond her striking cover shoot, the rising star was interviewed by Jada Pinkett Smith and opened up about how her life has changed and the bullying that shaped her nature.

T.I. is determined to celebrate and uplift his community with the original content he is committed to producing on stage and on screen.

Criticised in the past for engaging in misogynoir (see his thinly veiled threats towards Azealia Banks) the brilliant performer turns a new leaf by using his social media platforms to celebrate black history and share his occasionally controversial views on the black family.

His latest move? The creation of a new TV series designed to find entrepreneurs within the African-American community.


‘Scandal’ is bowing out – after seven seasons.

Over the years, the Kerry Washington-led show has boasted some of the most dramatic twists and turns in TV history; and its final ever episode promises this in earnest.

It’s been a roller-coaster run for Olivia Pope and those in her complicated circle and viewers are just a week away from learning the ultimate outcome for the characters that make up the hit Shonaland show.

Ahead of its April 19th broadcast, check out a sneak peek preview of the last ever episode of ‘Scandal’ (titled ‘Over A Cliff’) below…


If anybody ever dared to doubt the sales power and impact of Nicki Minaj, the response to the rapstress’s latest singles – ‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz’ – should act as viable reasons to reconsider that stance.

As we reported here, the cuts – which both premiered this morning (April 12) – are reportedly the lead singles from Minaj’s long-awaited fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2014’s double platinum ‘Pinkprint.’  The fan reactions to the tunes’ respective releases, coupled with with the Harajuku Barbie’s domination of headlines due to confirmed beef with fellow femcee Cardi B (click here to read about that), certainly made the Young Money maven the top talk of the day.

The ultimate result?  She’s topped the iTunes sales chart with both singles:

Expect to see much of stageblazing Urban pop songstress Tinashe as she drives the promo trail in support of her brand spanking new album, ‘Joyride.’

Released April 13, the project – the long-awaited follow-up to her 2014 debut ‘Aquarius’ – is preceded by the French Montana & Ty Dolla Sign-assisted ‘Me So Bad,’ the Future-enlisted ‘Faded Love,’ and, of course, the bumping ‘No Drama,’ featuring Offset.

Having already blazed morning television with a solo live rendition of the cut (click here to watch), T tapped the Migos star to help with bringing the Stargate-produced song to late nite TV.  Curious how they fared?

Young Thug is certainly taking a unique approach to the rollout of his newest material.

After announcing he’d go 12 months without releasing music to honor his deaf brother, the rapper – who was placed on features throughout the year – opted to make a return four months into the year with a 3-song EP, ‘Hear No Evil.’

One of the highly anticipated cuts from the mixtape comes courtesy of the Nicki Minaj-assisted tune, ‘Anybody.’  Launched just hours after the rapstress made a grand return herself with the tunes ‘Barbie Tingz & Chun-Li’ (click here to hear both), the song comes as another tool for her attack on next week’s Hot 100.

Look inside for your first listen to ‘Anybody’ and see the American Sign Language video lifted in its support (to honor Thug’s deaf brother):


It’s finally here!

After word of its arrival cranked as early as the top 0f 2015, spring 2018 can lay claim to the premiere of Tinashe‘s long-awaited sophomore album ‘Joyride.’

Revamped, repackaged, and reimagined multiple times ahead of its April 13 debut, the project in its current incarnate was preceded by three action packed singles (‘Me So Bad,’ ‘No Drama,’ and ‘Faded Love’) and called upon the talents of chart-topping rap talents Future, French Montana, Offset, and Ty Dolla $ign to assist.

Will their support, alongside the anticipation for ‘Joyride’s long-awaited commute to record shelves, be enough to hoist the project to a respectable first week placement on the Billboard 200?  Listen inside and weigh in:


The Weeknd is on a roll, that’s for sure.

Just days after seeing his surprise EP, ‘My Dear Melancholy,’ top the Billboard 200 with first week sales north of 160,000 (click here to read more on that), the Grammy-winning singer rolled out a full short film in support of one its songs, ‘He Was Never There’ (click here to watch).

Now, in support of ‘Call Out My Name’ – the only of ‘Melancholy’s cuts to debut in the Billboard Hot 100’s top 10 – The Weeknd’s released a full visual.  Directed by longtime collaborator Grant Singer, the clip – days after its Spotify-exclusive preview – awaits inside for your viewing pleasure:


It’s only been a few hours since Nicki Minaj revealed her issue with Cardi B over their appearance on Migos ‘Motor Sport.’

However, the rapper has taken to social media to add to the narrative.

See what we mean below…


Nicki Minaj and Cardi B have been at the center of feud rumors for months.

And though both ladies denied any tension, their decision to not film together during the much-hyped Migos ‘Motor Sport’ video only added volume to the murmurs.

Now Nicki has done away with the diplomacy and flat out confirmed that there are indeed…issues.

During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio to promote new singles ‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz,’ the femcee took aim at Cardi for (up until recently) “never showing genuine love.”

She went on to express her frustration with the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapstress for letting her come across as the “bad guy” in the ‘Motor Sport’ fiasco – despite knowing the truth.

Listen to her words below…


Nicki Minaj is officially back and aiming to blaze with new singles ‘Chun Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz.’ 

The latter is getting the video treatment out of the gate and Onika is wasting no time hyping its arrival.

For, moments after premiering the song on Beats 1 radio, the femcee unwrapped a preview of the visual.
