Lil Nas continues to bulldoze records.
Because, after nabbing a history-making 19-weeks at #1 with debut single ‘Old Town Road,’ the 20-year-old has crossed another major milestone. One that etches his name in the record books.

With ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ taking residence at New York’s Barclay’s Center this week, who better than NY native Alicia Keys to kick off affairs.
The 15-time Grammy winner was on-hand to perform new single ‘Show Love’ (from her upcoming album). And while she wasn’t joined by collaborator Miguel, she did hold her own.
She also sat down with Kimmel to discuss her incoming memoir, ‘More Myself.’ A project she deemed “a journey.”

October 11th marked the long-awaited release of Fantasia‘s sixth studio effort, ‘Sketchbook.’
Coming as the Grammy winner’s first project released without the backing of a major label, the era was kicked off by the high-powered R&B ballad, ‘Enough.’ As critical acclaim rolled in for the single’s follow-ups, ‘PTSD,’ ‘Bad Girl,’ and ‘Holy Ghost,’ Fannie hit the promo trail in support of the LP. Touching TV, radio, Web, and print in the blitz (click here to read her interview with That Grape Juice), the diva revealed ‘Sketchbook’ is not only her most personal album to date but also her best work yet.
Did fans agree? Look inside to see just where the set landed on the refreshed Billboard 200:
Queen Bee Lil Kim may have seen her latest effort, ‘9,’ royally ignored by music lovers, but it certainly doesn’t mean all is lost.
As we reported here, industry analysts predicted the set would shift less than 1,000 copies upon the conclusion of its inaugural sales tracking week. Later confirmed via Billboard’s most recent update of its main album chart (October 22), the project’s first 7 days of sales failed to garner a figure high enough to be included among the tally’s top 200 sellers of the week.
However, where the LP may have not performed in the grand scheme, it certainly held its own categorically. See what we mean inside:
VH1’s refusal to issue a clear statement on its feelings towards Evelyn Lozada‘s colorism/featurism drama has incensed viewers of the show she stars in…‘Basketball Wives.’
The Reality TV royal has seen her brand take a major hit following her decision to place an image of a monkey beneath a comment targeted at an African woman and has learned that a number of the brands she represents are under pressure to cut her loose or face the threat of boycotts.
More trouble has emerged this week.
