Hazel-E has startled her remaining supporters by pulling the late Nipsey Hussle into her feud with The City Girls.
An unfortunately shameful move below…
‘Juice’ singer Lizzo is on the lips of many after making a splash with the hit single and housing album ‘Cuz I Love You.’
Not resting on her laurels, the rising star stopped by The Breakfast Club to talk everything from music, body positivity, f*ck boys, being bullied, her lengthy industry journey, and much much more.
With her music magnetising the masses, her personality looks set to do the same too after this fun-filled interview.
Check it out after the jump…
Janet Jackson‘s ‘Metamorphosis’ show has been met with a stream of positive reviews since its unveiling on May 17th.
Powered by brilliant arrangements, a fantastic live vocal performance and backing vocalist support from the likes of Rebbie James, the show mixes and blends musical moments from the icon’s discography to offer attendees a fresh (and colourful) look into her career.
One of the night’s highlights takes place when the performer revives her ‘All For You‘-sized jam ‘Trust a Try’. How she delivers this time around? With help from her club-cut ‘Feedback’ and support from Chris Rivera…the dancer Janet handpicked after seeing him move with Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello.
Fifth Harmony star Ally Brooke went from the Tyga-assisted ‘Low Key’ to ‘Lips Don’t Lie,’ the newest taste from her forthcoming solo LP.
Enlisting the help of rapper A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Brooke is playing approximately no games with this piano-driven, uptempo number.
Could she finally have homed in on that ever-elusive solo Hot 100 hit? Listen inside and let us know:
Not even the combined powers of Beyonce, Jay Z, Big Sean, John Legend, Cardi B, Meek Mill, and more could help DJ Khaled‘s latest album – ‘Father of Asahd’ – outpace Tyler the Creator‘s new project, ‘IGOR.’
According to industry analysts, Khaled – despite an aggressive promo schedule that’s not only seen him tackle radio, print, and TV but also seen him drop multiple music videos in his latest LP’s support – will bow at #2 on next week’s refreshed Billboard 200 with approximately 115k-130k sold (25k-35k pure sales).
Look inside to see just how many Tyler’s on track to move:
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’ll fly back to 2009 to revisit ‘Halo’ – the fourth single from Beyonce‘s multi-platinum tertiary solo release, ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ (2008). Join us inside:
Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran have collaborated multiple times in the past (as the latter’s credited with penning Bieber hits ‘Cold Water,’ ‘Love Yourself’,’ and more), but their first official collaboration in duet form came courtesy of the new single, ‘I Don’t Care.’
Although greeted with much fanfare – a feat evidenced by its record-breaking streams on Spotify (click here to read more) – the tune was unable to unseat the Hot 100’s longtime leader, Lil Nas X‘s ‘Old Town Road,’ and instead made an impressive #2 debut on this week’s refreshed chart. Billboard reports ‘Care’ cracked the chart’s upper rankings with digital song sales of 77,000 alongside handsome streaming and radio play figures. And, while the combined sum of activity did not help them dethrone ‘Road,’ it did help Bieber extend another one of his many Hot 100 records. According to the Music Bible:
Bieber extends his mark for the most No. 2 [debuts] on the Hot 100 to four. He previously opened at the runner-up spot with “Boyfriend” (April 14, 2012), “Sorry” (Nov. 14, 2015) and “Cold Water” (Aug. 13, 2016). Of those songs, “Sorry” went on to hit No. 1 (for three weeks).
As we extend congratz to Bieber, look inside to see who joins him in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100 edition:
Legendary singer Dionne Warwick caused a firestorm of controversy after a recent interview saw her weigh in on today’s talent and who among the class has the potential to be an “icon” like herself.
Nearly a month after wrapping her Vegas residency and now hot on the promo trail of her new album, ‘She’s Back’ (released May 17), the well-respected, but much outspoken diva is back on the bad side of headlines after she implied Beyonce was among those who have “a long way to go” before reaching iconic status. Speaking with our friends at Essence recently, Warwick stated:
“I don’t know if 10 years from now, anybody can actually sing the songs of our babies today. That’s not, as you guys say, ‘throwing shade.’ That’s just looking at it with reality,” she said.
That’s not all she said. More inside:
After reminding fans she had ‘That Magic’ with the release of her sixth studio album, ‘Worthy,’ Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter India.Arie is now showing off new single, ‘Steady Love.’
A fan favorite from the February-released project, the Blues-flavored song’s accompanying visual – which sees rapper/community activist David Banner portray her love interest – showcases the duo giving the ultimate nod to Black love.
On working with Banner, Arie stated:
“…he brought professionalism, and integrity, and a REGAL bearing to the set. I went in nervous that we’d be so close together all day… But David set the tone… He was a true joy to work with, way more than I ever could have imagined. And when he bent down and tied my shoe, I KNEW, he was my hero… Filming this video was just a TRULY inspiring day.”
