Exclusive: Kelly Rowland’s Group June’s Diary Dish On Debut Album / Sing ‘Hotline Bling’

'L.A.N.C.E' Singers Spill All At The 2016 BET Awards

*Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below*

That Grape Juice were on hand at the 2016 BET Awards and so too were Kelly Rowland‘s new girl group June’s Diary.

Their appearance was fitting given that the five-piece were pieced together on hit BET series ‘Chasing Destiny.’

With season one wrapped, the soulful quintet have wasted no time servicing material to the masses.

Indeed, they used the ‘Awards platform to debut the video for their new single ‘L.A.N.C.E.’

Speaking with our girl Megan on the red carpet, the collective – comprised of Shyann, Kristal, Gabby, Ashly, and Brienna, spilled on their debut album.

Watch above as they reveal whether mentor Kelly will feature on the LP; they also perform an impromptu acapella of Drake‘s ‘Hotline Bling’ – which was all sorts of amazing.

Billboard 200: Drake On Course For 9th Week At #1

Rapper Fends Off Newcomers & Old Chart Rivals Beyonce, Adele, & More

drake adele billboard 200

At this point it’s looking like it’s going to take an act of Congress to get Drake to move from the top spot of the Billboard 200.

For, after celebrating his 8th consecutive week atop the album chart (fending off steep competition from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), industry analysts predict ‘Views’ will be enjoying the view from the top yet again next week.

Fans who thought the anticipated increased sales of Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ (thanks to a rocking BET Awards performance) and increased streams of Adele‘s blockbuster album ’25’ (thanks to recently widened streaming availability) would be enough to unseat the Grammy winning rapper apparently thought wrong.

Get the scoop inside:

Maxwell Says Part 3 of ‘BlackSummersNight’ Trilogy Is Already Nearly Finished

Singer Promises Less Than 6-Year Wait For Next Album Ahead of Part 2's Release

maxwell thatgrapejuice are you buying

 

We may be only a day away from the highly anticipated release of Maxwell‘s newest album, ‘blackSUMMERS’night,’ but the next few hours seem like nothing after a nearly 7 year wait.

Indeed, 2009 was the last time we got a full body of work from the Grammy winning crooner who recently revealed the wait was due to having to sift through over 300 songs to narrow down ‘SUMMERS’ – the second installment in a trilogy of similarly themed albums – to its present 12-song tracklist.

With only hours separating them from part 2 of the trio of opuses, some fans have already begun anticipating its follow-up [blacksummers’NIGHT] with fear there may be another 6-7 year wait before they can get their hands on it.  However, a recent chat with our friends at ‘EW’ should ease those fears as the singer not only revealed why he took such a lengthy break, but also that part 3 is already nearly completed!

Details on what you should expect from it await below:

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 2006 #TBT

Shakira's 'Hips Don't Lie' Loses Top Spot To 'American Idol' Winner

shakira-hips-dont-lie-animated-gif-6-thatgrapejuice

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’  allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.

This week we try (and fail) at doing our best hip roll to Shakira‘s hit single ‘Hips Don’t Lie,’ featuring Wyclef Jean.  Though this week in 2006 brought with it the song’s dethronement from the top of the Hot 100 by the year’s ‘American Idol’ winner Taylor Hicks, by the time he hopped over ‘Hips’ to occupy the tally’s perch, the damage had long been done by the Colombian beauty.

Topping the charts in over 50 countries worldwide during its prime, ‘Hips’ lent Shakira her first and only #1 single (to date) on the Billboard Hot 100.  Going on to sell nearly 20 million copies, the song was not only the most successful release of 2006, but still reigns as one of the best-selling tunes of all time – thanks in no small part to a rocking video that featured the return of hip-rolling choreography that brought Shaki to U.S. fame a few years prior (see: ‘Whenever, Wherever’).

Tuck in below to see if any of your faves from today can be spotted on the Hot 100’s lineup this week 10 years ago:

Exclusive: Rae Sremmurd Star Talks Writing Beyonce’s ‘Formation’

TGJ Catches Up With Swae Lee At 2016 BET Awards

As one of the world’s most monumental mega-stars, Beyonce has mastered the art of not just making music – but making “moments.”

One of her most profound was unleashed this February in the form of ‘Formation.’

An unapologetic celebration of her Blackness (and that of millions the world over), the cut and its accompanying video drew both praise and critique. More than anything, it ignited much needed conversation – which perhaps is where it’s greatest success lay. [The song would go on to enjoy a #10 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 months later when released with the singer’s sixth album ‘Lemonade’].

That Grape Juice caught up with one of the song’s primary writers – Swae Lee from duo Rae Sremmurd – at the 2016 BET Awards and quizzed him on what it was like working with the Queen Bey on the track. 

See what he had to say above and peep the award-winning video for ‘Formation’ below…

Rae Sremmurd’s new single ‘Do Yoga is out now; as is their album ‘Sremm Life 2′ arrives August 12th.

New Video: Rihanna – ‘Sledgehammer’

Single Lifted From 'Star Trek: Beyond' Soundtrack

rihanna-sledgehammer-video-thatgrapejuice

Another day, another Rihanna video.

The Bajan belle is going gun-blazing in an attempt to make up for commercial slow burner that is her new album ‘ANTI.’

Over the last few months, the 28-year-old has been releasing a slew of songs not featured on the set (which has thus far only spurned the hit ‘Work’ and the promising ‘Needed Me’). The latest is the Sia spun ‘Sledgehammer.’

Lifted from the ‘Star Trek: Beyond’ movie soundtrack, the single is being given an all-out push.

At the top of the hour, it was launched in IMAX Theaters and now it’s available to watch online. And we’ve got the first play. Check it out below…
