6ix9ine is on a roll, much to the detriment of many of his former affiliates.

Born David Hernandez, the ‘Dummy Boy’ rapper is currently facing up to 47 years in prison but could see that time reduced to little as nothing if he cooperates with federal investigators.  Having already named rappers Jim Jones and Trippie Redd as gang affiliates, now Hernandez has his sights set on Cardi B.

Ay yi yi! Who’s next?

Tank enjoyed a resurgence of sorts thanks to his 2017 LP ‘Savage,’ which features the platinum hit, ‘When We’ (his first Hot 100 entry since 2007’s ‘Please Don’t Go’).

Looking to capitalize off the renewed interest, the R&B singer-songwriter has lifted the lid on news surrounding its follow-up, ‘Elevation.’  Arriving courtesy of Atlantic Records, the set – preceded by singles ‘I Don’t Think You’re Ready’ and the Chris Brown-assisted ‘Dirty’ – is scheduled to hit stores just a week after the crooner sets sail on the North American ‘Sketchbook’ tour with Grammy winning songstress Fantasia (click here to see dates).

Speaking on the new project, Tank said:

Lizzo is the name on everyone’s lips – and a pretty firm fixture on their playlists too.

The Houston native has come to embody the age old reality that most “overnight successes” are indeed years in the making.

A hustler on the indie circuit for almost a decade, her eventual signing to a major label didn’t yield immediate fruit.

And while the viral-ness of catchy jam ‘Juice’ was initially hoped to become her big break, it was a song from three-years prior that would not only become her breakthrough – it became a Billboard #1. That track being ‘Truth Hurts.’

With the song currently enjoying its third week atop of the tally, the 31-year-old covers the latest issue of Billboard Magazine – which dubs as the Grammy 2020 preview edition.

Her appearance is notable given that despite its age and availability in the marketplace, ‘Truth’ is eligible in major Grammy categories – given that it was added on the deluxe edition of her major label debut ‘Cuz I Love You.’

Head below for snaps from the stunning Heather Hazzan lensed spread, as well as word from Lizzo on everything from her rise to Pop prominence, her approach to performance, and much more.

October 11th can’t come soon enough for fans of R&B sensation Fantasia as the diva selected the date to deliver views of her long-awaited, ‘Sketchbook.’

The follow-up to 2016’s Billboard R&B chart-topping, ‘The Definition Of…,’ Fannie – as has been revealed in recent interviews – is using the ‘Sketchbook’ era to redefine and repaint the public’s perception of her.  In addition to unveiling layers of her personality yet seen, the 35-year-old’s bringing the LP’s content to stages across America on the ‘Sketchbook Tour’ just days after it arrives on shelves (click here for dates).

To amp fan anticipation, she’s taken to Facebook to give a peek at the project’s official album cover artwork.  The “first look” is accompanied by news of the album’s pre-order info and track list.  Details inside:

With new single ‘Panini’ pacing its way up the charts, Lil Nas X appears a-front of the latest issue of Billboard Magazine (in a double cover spread with Lizzo).

After reigning atop of the Hot 100 for a record-breaking 19-weeks with ‘Old Town Road,’ attention has turned to whether 20-year-old can enjoy success with his follow-up efforts.

He, however, isn’t allowing the debate to to phase him.

Instead, he’s laser-focussed on carving out a legitimate music career.

Christina Aguilera is leaving no stone unturned in the promotion of her first Las Vegas residency, ‘The Xperience,’ as evidenced by her onslaught of appearances on television and radio.

Dishing on the critically-acclaimed jaunt’s extension into 2020 (as we reported here), the week’s seen Aguilera take to ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show,’ Andy Cohen‘s SIRIUSXM radio show, and more to share the good news.  Her latest appearance came courtesy of a visit to the late night talk show circuit courtesy of a visit to NBC’s ‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh: The Primetime Special’ on Wednesday night (September 18).

September 17 marked the kick off of Madonna‘s eleventh headlining concert trek, the ‘Madame X’ tour.

Designed to support the Pop Queen’s latest chart-topping album, ‘Madame X,’ the jaunt’s launch at Brooklyn’s Academy of Music dazzled concertgoers last night and was met with mostly favorable reviews.  Announced in May, Madge’s latest road trip sees the diva dance away from the arenas and stadiums of her previous touring efforts to play a series of theaters.  Mounting mini-residencies in select cities around the world including London, Lisbon, Paris, Las Vegas, New York, Chicago, and more, the limited seating at each location continues to overwhelm promoters with demand for encores.

The result?

The ‘Music’ star will be bringing her music to even more cities, upping the tour’s total (as of time reported) to a whopping 92 stops between now and March 2020.  And, at the rate tickets are going, that number’s only set to increase.

Summer may be coming to a close, but Chance the Rapper‘s looking to soak up every last second before waving goodbye.

Hot on the promo trail in support of his debut studio album, ‘The Big Day,’ Chance – who has already blazed the likes of ‘Ellen,’ ‘Good Morning America,’ and more with performances of the LP’s critically acclaimed content (click here to watch) – continued his efforts on Tuesday’s episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ (September 17).

Dressed as a lifeguard and joined by vocal powerhouses En Vogue and award-winning Gospel star Kierra Sheard, the trio of acts rocked the crowd with a stirring live rendition of his tune, “I Got You (Always and Forever).”

After weeks of taking to social media to voice their displeasure over the lack of television promotion Katy Perry‘s latest singles, ‘Never Really Over’ and ‘Small Talk,’ have received since their respective debuts (click here to read more), the singer’s fans – affectionately known as #KatyCats – must certainly be gleaming after she made a pit stop on Wednesday’s episode of ‘Ellen’ (September 18).

While there the soon-to-be Mrs. Bloom dished on her fiance Orlando Bloom, building a friendship with former foe Taylor Swift, and ditching the traditional album recording route to focus solely on singles.  Ahead of the unveiling of the music video for her next release, ‘Harleys in Hawaii,’ Perry made a splash on the ‘Ellen’ stage with the first televised performance of her ‘Small Talk.’

‘F*ck It Up’ performer Iggy Azalea believes Wendy Williams got her f*cked up if she thought a recent on-air diss from her top-rated talk show was going to slide.

The self-proclaimed Queen of All Media royally took aim at the saucy Aussie on Monday’s episode (September 16th) while weighing in on Nicki Minaj‘s retirement.  Asserting the Harajuku Barbie’s recently announced departure from the music scene would irreparably damage her career (click here to read more), Williams pointed to Azalea as proof of the negative impact time off can have on one’s legacy.

Referring to the 29-year-old as “the Australian girl with the fake body,” the comment eventually reached the desk of the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker who, in turn, took to Twitter to offer a stinging clap back.
