Afrobeats has been blazing on a global scale and look set to intensify thanks to exciting new names on the rise.

One of the most notable to emerge is Teni The Entertainer.

Boasting a sound and artistic proposition that is inimitable, the singer’s flavoursome flow has garnered the attention of a worldwide audience – including London, where she recently played a sold-out show.

Home, though, is where the heart is and Teni is gearing up to play one of Nigeria’s hottest (and most internationally renown) spectacles – the Gidi Culture Fest on April 20th.

Ahead of her performance, That Grape Juice caught up with her to discuss her ascend, a possible WizKid collaboration, Afrobeats’ boom, and much more.

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’  allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.

This week we think it’s best to reflect on ‘I Learned from the Best’ – the last official single from Whitney Houston‘s ‘My Love Is Your Love’ album.  Meet us inside:

Despite being in the middle of her 150+ date ‘Beautiful Trauma’ world tour, P!nk is still finding time to crank out new music to the masses.

Her latest effort, ‘Walk Me Home’ – the first single from her soon-to-be-released 8th studio album, ‘Hurts 2B Human’ (click here to read more) – premiered to critical acclaim just a month ago.

Now, ahead of its parent project’s April 2019 debut, the 39-year-old’s unveiled its accompanying music video.  A stunning visual directed by ‘The Greatest Showman’ director Michael Gracey and co-directed by Stuart Bowen, the clip sees the songstress take to the sky in familiar fashion to soar, dance, drop, and pop across a starry city while belting out her latest hit (a la Taylor Swift‘s ‘Delicate’ music video).

Easily one of her most impressive videos to date, click inside to see:

TLC‘s story remains one of music’s most rivetting.

Much like the group, their narrative is far from conventional.

Indeed, beyond the highs and lows of their professional journey, the various hardships and triumphs experienced by members T-Boz, Chilli, and Left Eye personally are still dropping jaws decades on.

Having already shared their story via a successful VH1 biopic, the group’s surviving members are set to open up the more by way of a brand new Broadway musical.

Interposing one of music history’s most beloved tunes into your work can come with a hefty price tag; ask Ariana Grande.

The Grammy-winner – who just saw her latest hit, ‘7 Rings,’ return to the top of the Hot 100 for its 6th non-consecutive week (click here to read more) – knows all too well about the cost of such ventures as ‘Rings’ contains reinterpretations of Rodgers & Hammerstein (the songwriters who penned ‘My Favorite Things’ from the iconic ‘Sound of Music’ soundtrack).

And, while modern acts like rappers Soulja Boy and Princess Nokia allege they’re due a piece of the ‘Rings’ royalties pie (click here to read more on that), Rodgers & Hammerstein – two of 10 credited writers on the Grande hit – take so much of it there’s barely a slice left for others.

Much like his Young Money sister Nicki Minaj (as we’ve reported previously), ‘Going Bad’ beau Drake is seeing a bad side of his European fans after he unexpectedly cancelled a show on his hotly-selling ‘Assassination Vacation’ tour.

On Monday (March 18th), Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome’- set to host the 6 God for three days in April – unveiled news that he not only canceled the April 23rd date but also rescheduled the April 25th and April 26th dates forward.  Needless to say, once fans got word Drizzy had changed the dates of the two remaining shows to April 15th and April 16th (and that they are reportedly already sold out), they were whipped into frenzy.

2019 has seen rapper The Game (born Jayceon Taylor) and conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren at each other’s throats damn near since the ball dropped.

Admittedly, it’s been the pettiness of Taylor that’s made most headlines as he – via his Instagram account – has launched several scathing, profanity laden attacks toward the way of Lahren.  Slamming her appearance to her judgment of 21 Savage‘s reported illegal immigrant status (which also earned claps from the likes of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B as we reported here) and much more, the ‘How We Do’ hitmaker even took to daytime TV talk show ‘The Real’ earlier this week (March 18) to detail his longstanding disdain for the television personality.

Once news of his appearance hit her desk, she took to FOX News to label him “low class” and “irrelevant” to the rap game.  His response? Well, let’s just say it was so expletive ridden we’d rather let you read it for yourself:

Jay-Z is easily one of modern music’s most revered names and that status is set to be garnished with another layer of legendary.

For, the US Library Of Congress has announced that it’ll be archiving one of the rapper’s most celebrated albums.
