Music royalty was out in full force this weekend at the 2015 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
Missy Elliott was one of the extravaganza’s main attractions this year and commanded a huge crowd on the merit of her name alone (new music is still pending).
Joining those in attendance were Beyonce, bandmate Kelly Rowland, and sister Solange.
The trio are believed to have caught up with Missy backstage, and paused to pose for the snap above.
We love talent here at TGJ and there’s a lot of it housed in the pic. Beautiful.
Ciara rocked this year’s Wireless Festival hours ago in support of her new album ‘Jackie.’
How she fared? Brilliantly, storming the stage with a set that impressed fans and critics alike before the release of her new video ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love.’
Watch her in action below…

It certainly seems so.

Lil Wayne is aptly declaring his independence on Independence Day.
The rapper, who has been in a legal wrangle with Cash Money label head Birdman in recent months, has taken to Jay Z‘s TIDAL to release what he’s christened his most prolific effort yet – the ‘Free Weezy Album.’
Interestingly rolled out as a stream (rather than a purchasable LP), the project looks to be the fruit of the “deal” Weezy announced he made with Jigga last month.
And while there’s no one yet on the long-awaited arrival of ‘The Carter V,’ Wayne’s newest collection of songs is already generating bountiful buzz.
Take a listen below…
