Chart Check: Bruno Mars & Nicki Minaj Move Closer To Trumping Country Stars’ Hot 100 Records

nicki minaj taylor swift billboard

It’s a good time to Nicki Minaj right now.

As her ‘PinkPrint’ release has passed the Gold mark in the U.S. and etches closer to platinum, the rapper/singer/songwriter is also set to shine on the big screen via the third installment of the Ice Cube-led ‘Barbershop’ franchise.

Now, as if that isn’t enough to celebrate, all eyes are now on her as she has notched her 65th Hot 100 hit with the Meek Mill & Chris Brown-helmed ‘All Eyes On You.’  The chart triumph sees the rapstress slide in just a few steps closer to leading the pack of “most Hot 100 entries” by any female…of any genre (only Taylor Swift & Aretha Franklin have more as we reported here).

Elsewhere, charts reveal Swift isn’t the only country diva at risk of seeing her Hot 100 record threatened. For, in addition to setting a new chart record this week, Bruno Mars‘ monster hit ‘Uptown Funk’ is just two weeks away from upstaging Leann Rimes‘How Do I Live’ in a big way.

Wondering how?  Get the scoop and full chart check below:

Did You Miss It?: Lil’ Scrappy Suffers Backlash After Slamming Caitlyn Jenner/Transgender Community

(photo source)

While the world gets ready for the 2015 ESPY Awards and the courage celebration of famed athlete turned reality star Caitlyn Jenner, there’s one person she shouldn’t expect to get a standing O from on July 15th ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Lil Scrappy.

The ‘No Problem’ hitmaker has quite the problem on his hands after a recent interview with our buds at VladTV saw him go all the way in on the transgender community – namely Jenner – when he proclaimed:

 ”For the world of young kids, for the world of young little boys, stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis,” he said.

Citing racism as part of the reason Caitlyn has been so accepted, Scrappy continued:

”No Black man can stand up and say, ‘You know, my whole life I felt like a woman, but I was just holding it down for my kids and my b-tch.’ We say that sh-t, n—gga, we’d get assassinated– by us [other black people]. We [black people] don’t play that sh-t.”

See the interview below that has the LGBTQ community and supporters in an uproar:

Exclusive: LeToya Luckett Readies Edgy New Album

Patience is a word LeToya Luckett fans are familiar with.

For, despite sharing morsels of new music since 2009’s sophomore effort ‘Lady Love,’ the Destiny’s Child original has been balancing the recording of her third LP with an endless stream of TV work.

And while the latter is still a focus (as evidenced by her current roles on ‘Single Ladies’ and HBO’s ‘Ballers’), the ‘Torn’ singer is gearing up to push ahead full-speed with the eagerly awaited album – which has a tentative title ‘Until Then…’

Speaking to That Grape Juice at the 2015 BET Awards, Luckett described the project as “edgy R&B” and revealed that she’s getting ready to shoot the video for the set’s “first official single” – which judging by her wording isn’t recent effort ‘Don’t Make Me Wait (ft. T.I).’

Check out the interview above…

Jermaine Dupri Dishes On Janet Jackson’s Comeback & Clarifies Mariah Carey Comments

janet-mariah-jd

Though fiercely private, Janet Jackson went all sorts of public with her relationship with hitmaker Jermaine Dupri.

The couple famously dated for almost six years before calling it quits in 2009 – the same year Jackson’s brother Michael passed away.

In the time since, both have remained coy about the split and – more broadly – about each other.

Still, with their names very much intertwined, it was little surprise that Dupri was quizzed about his iconic ex – who has since married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana – while doing the promo rounds at the 2015 BET Awards. Especially given that she was the night’s MVP after receiving the the Ultimate Icon honor.

What did he have to say about Ms. Jackson while speaking with Hot 97‘s Nessa? Find out below, where Dupri also dishes on his blunt approach to working with Mariah Carey.
