Scandal rocked the Reggaeton arena this week when portions of “intimate video” of Ozuna – one of its leading stars – hit the net.

Complicating the story the more were growing rumors that (prior to the vid’s release) the ‘Taki Taki’ performer had been at the center of an extortion attempt – given that two other men are said to appear in the same video. Take from that what you will.

In any case, the name of a local queer rapper, Kevin Fret, was attached the extortion story. As such, when he was mysteriously murdered this month, the snowball of hearsay became too big to ignore.

Addressing the matter head-on, Ozuna is speaking up and out…

It’s been a decade since Soulja Boy became one of the modern net’s most viral entities with self-produced smashes such as ‘Crank Dat.’ 

Fast forward to the present and he’s doing it all over again, but this time off the back of his interview on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Shared just one week ago, the sit-down has amassed over 12 million views (thanks largely to Soulja’s comments on “Drraaaaake” Drake and..well…everyone).

Wasting no time seizing the moment, the rapper has dropped a new song ‘Cut Dat Check’ and says he’s gearing up to hit the road with Nicki Minaj.

Much like her ‘What Men Want’ co-star Taraji P. Henson, singer Erykah Badu may be currently embroiled in controversy for recently implying a defense of embattled singer R. Kelly after the premiere of the explosive Lifetime documentary, ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ but that hasn’t stopped her from trying to clear her name of the muck.

As we reported here, the Grammy winner saw her name listed among the likes of Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Questlove, and more as prospective interviewees who declined to have any dealings with the documentary.  When a fan recently brought this to the ‘On & On’ singer’s attention, she not only denied knowing Kelly personally she also denied ever being contacted by the creators of the film.  Once its producer, Dream Hampton, got word of Badu’s statement the two clashed in a back-and-forth on Twitter.

Taraji P. Henson added her name to a growing list of celebrities who have been harshly criticized for offering a controversial stance on R. Kelly since the premiere of Lifetime’s damning documentary, ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ (which features testimonies from victims who allege sexual and emotional abuse at the R&B singer’s hands).

When the ‘Empire’ actress took to social media (in a now deleted post) to compare the high number of hashtags containing #MuteRKelly versus the “seemingly low” number of posts containing #MuteWeinstein or #MuteHarveyWeinstein, it was believed she was implying the disparity was due to Kelly receiving unfair treatment.

The result?  A backlash ensued that prompted her to follow-up with a clarification of sorts.  See what we mean:

Earning the very same critical acclaim that’s accompanied many of her previous prized offerings, she’s out to show that ‘Magic’ (click here to see its music video) is just one of many gems housed on her new project, ‘Worthy.’  Featuring production from the likes of Aaron W. Lindsey, Branden Burch, and more, Arie – ahead of the album’s February 15th debut date – has taken to social media to reveal its official cover artwork (seen above), full tracklist, and new music video for its track, ‘What If.’
