With a star-studded guest list that features the likes of T.I., Tory Lanez, Quavo, Young Thug, Gunna, and more, November 8th saw R&B star Jacquees take his sophomore album to chart battle.

Seeking to prove once and for all he is indeed the genre’s leading male monarch, the LP – titled ‘King of R&B’ – serves as the follow-up to the 25-year-old’s 2018 debut effort, ‘4275.’ Originally titled ‘Round 2’ and slated for a July 2019 release, the self-proclaimed potentate quietly let the first due date pass but stunned fans last week with the unexpected announcement of its official delivery date (click here to read more).

It’s that time of year again!

The air is still buzzing as today brought with it the highly anticipated 2020 Grammy nominations unveiled, per usual, via a special announcement weeks before the actual showing.  But, what also comes with the ‘per usual’ are the jaw-dropping surprises, snubs, and all out “shut-outs” that accompany the nods’ list.

Always a heated debate-starter, the coveted tally saw the likes of chart-toppers Beyoncé, Cardi B, Chris Brown, Lana Del Rey, and Taylor Swift go without mention in the correct categories (as some fans argue), while hitmakers Sam Smith, Megan Thee Stallion, Camila Cabello, and Mariah Carey got no mention at all.

The 2010s has gifted music history some of its most memorable efforts.

From JAY-Z to Adele, Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith, P!nk, and more, the decade was chock full of groundbreaking titles that helped change the musical landscape in their respective genres – a truth that undoubtedly made compiling the list of top 100 releases from the time period quite the daunting task.

Nevertheless, as the decade draws to a close, Billboard not only assembled but also ranked its favorites among the last ten years’ offerings.  And, while names like DrakeKendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, and more were expected features, there were no shortage of surprises.

Jussie Smollett is fighting back.

The ‘Empire’ actor found himself at the center of one of the year’s most shocking stories; a story which saw him initially deemed the victim (after an alleged hate attack) only to himself become the suspect of criminal behavior.

The latter saw Smollett charged with orchestrating the entire attack and paying off  brothers Abimbola Osundairo and Olabinjo Osundairo to stage a beatdown.

And yet in a dramatic twist, the criminal case collapsed in the preliminary phase and the 36-year-old looked to be off the hook. That is until the City of Chicago filed suit against him demanding he pay back the $130,000 to recoup the cost of the investigation.

Now, Smollett – who has always maintained his innocence – is retaliating.

While most of the recent attention afforded 2000’s boyband B2K has been centered around Omarion and the romantic dealings of his ex, Apryl Jones, with bandmate Lil Fizz (as we reported here), the group’s 2019 narrative certainly spells of more – namely their successful reunion trek, ‘The Millennium Tour.’

Pulling in over $5 million earlier this year, the success of the outing prompted calls for new music and a subsequent tour from the quartet.  In response, Omarion sent fans into frenzy earlier this week when he teased the possibility of a 2020 revamp of the nationwide jaunt.

Yet, almost just as quickly as excitement for the news went up, fellow group member – J-Boog – brought it back down when he took to social media to adamantly deny B2K’s involvement in any 2020 touring venture.
