June’s Diary have delivered a double dose of newness with the release their ‘Take Your Time’ care-package.

The freshly unwrapped set is comprised of songs ‘I Ain’t With It’ and ‘Stuntin.’

As for the title of the mini-set, ‘Take Your Time’ references the quintet’s progress over the past three years as an independent music group and serves as a nod to the group’s resilience and strength as they forge ahead on their path to ownership as African-American creatives and uplifting women through storytelling

It comes on the heels of their 2018 EP ‘All Of Us.’

With a debut album still incoming, check out the latest from Kristal, Ashly, Brienna, Gabby,  and Shyann below…


Much like the Brandy and Monica, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears, and other reported female celebrity feuds of history, the catalyst of the beef often derives from external sources.  The aforementioned ladies are just a few who have cited ‘the industry’ (which also includes labels and fans) as the impetus of their rivalries which, ironically, later transformed what was once-rumored into reality.

Chance the Rapper believes that exact circumstance applies to the bad blood between rapstresses Cardi B & Nicki Minaj.  The 26-year-old, still hot on the promo trail in support of his debut studio album – ‘The Big Day’ – took to ‘Big Boy’ to discuss a number of happenings in his life including fatherhood, his delayed arena tour, and more.  When addressing ‘industry politics’ Chance took the chance to discuss his feelings on the beef between B and Minaj.

As he’s in a unique position to do so (having collaborated with both of them in the past), look inside to hear just what he said:


Nicki Minaj isn’t the only musician calling for an end to online bullying.

Jesy Nelson, one member of the brilliant girl group Little Mix, is speaking up and out about her experiences in the music industry and how vile abuse launched at her by cowards online drove her into a deep sadness and stifling depression.

The star teamed up with the BBC to create a show named ‘Odd One Out’ which sees her bare all on what happened when she became a member of the group (formed by Kelly Rowland) and was thrust into the public eye.

Today, she is a survivor.

Jesy’s story below…


Rihanna continues to use her platform propagate noteworthy causes.

Last night saw RiRi host the 5th Annual Diamond Ball, in benefit of her Clara Lionel Foundation – which strives to help impoverished communities across the globe, with healthcare, education programs, and more.

This year’s fundraiser brought with it performances from the likes of Pharell Williams and DJ Khaled, and was attended by Cardi B, Normani, Megan Thee Stallion, Kehlani + new boo YG, A$AP Rocky, and several others.

Afrobeats king Wizkid is back and aiming to blaze with new single ‘Ghetto Love’ – the video for which premiered moments ago.

The flavorsome jam is the latest taste of long-awaited album ‘Made In Lagos,’ which is expected in the coming months.

Its arrival comes on the heels of Beyonce collaboration ‘Brown Skin Girl,’ an anthem that has earned praise aplenty for its empowering and uplifting ethos. It’s also been equally hailed for further bridging the gap between Afrobeats and the Western music sphere.

Watch below as Wiz continues his charge towards global domination below…


Small talk wouldn’t exactly be the best way to describe the conversation between #KatyCats as they slammed their fave, Katy Perry, for mishandling her latest two singles, ‘Never Really Over’ and ‘Small Talk’ (the first releases from her yet-titled sixth studio album).  While the former initially promised to be a return to chart glory for the 34-year-old with its #15 debut on the Hot 100, the latter – with a #81 peak on the same tally –  never really got off to a fighting start even after its accompanying music video premiered to critical acclaim.

For the tunes to have reached their respective peaks organically suggested, at the very minimum, the buying public was still receptive to what Miss Perry has to offer.  A feat that, if aided with proper promotion – the Cats believe – would give them a much needed boost toward higher peaks and longevity on the charts.  The absence of that awareness building only led their frustration from heated to boiling once it was announced the diva would be taking to television yet again to promote a venture that was unrelated to her new music.

As of time reported, Megan Thee Stallion‘s riding high with not one, but TWO Hot 100 Top 40 hits courtesy of the Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign-assisted, ‘Hot Girl Summer’ (#21), and DaBaby-assisted hit, ‘Cash Sh*t’ (#36).

To give each cut a boost, the 24-year-old’s continuing her trot across the promo trail in their respective supports.  Just two weeks after giving the former its television debut (click here to watch), Stallion – with help from Ty and DaBaby – gave fans another live taste of ‘Summer’ before the season comes to its official close.  Taking to ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ on Thursday (September 12), she also rendered a rendition of ‘Cash’ for good measure.

See how she fared inside:

It looks like ‘Hello’ hitmaker Adele is saying goodbye to married to life.

For, just 5 months after we first reported the Grammy-winning diva had separated from her husband, Simon Konecki  (click here to read), news has broken she’s officially filed for divorce.

Details inside:


‘Old Town Road’ star Lil Nas X (born Montero Hill) may have seen his follow-up, ‘Panini,’ gallop to a #16 peak on the Hot 100 (to date), but thanks to the enduring success of the former the 20-year-old had to pump the brakes on its promotion.

That all changed with the 2019 MTV VMAs when Hill took to the stage to unveil a futuristic performance, a theme that transcended to the song’s official music video that premiered just two weeks later (click here to watch).  Now, in a bid to pad the positive impact of the visual on the ‘7’ tune’s Hot 100 commercial performance, Hill’s teamed with rapper DaBaby (born Jonathan Kirk) for a remix.  Taking to Twitter to announce, Hill – who’s earned quite the reputation for being an “internet troll” – said the Kirk-assisted revamp would be the first of 25 the tune received over the life cycle of its promotion.

While we await news on if that’s true or not, look inside to hear what the duo cooked up:


It’s finally here!

After ample teasing, we finally feast our eyes on the new music video for ‘Don’t Call Me Angel,’ starring Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey.

Ahead of the premiere of the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot which stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska (in theaters November 15), the trio of chart-toppers convened to give fans a taste of the film’s official soundtrack which is co-executive produced by Grande.

Curious to see and hear what they cooked up? It awaits inside:


Longtime fans of ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer R. Kelly didn’t know what to believe after reports rang out the Grammy winner was a no-show to address charges he’s due to be tried for in Minnesota for “engaging in prostitution with someone under 18” and “soliciting someone for sexual contact.”

Set for a hearing scheduled at Hennepin County Court for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday (September 12), his absence – despite the Minnesota D.A.’s office being fully aware he is currently detained in a Chicago jail where he’s being held for federal sex crimes – sparked the issuance of a bench warrant by the presiding judge.

Needless to say, Kelly’s attorney – Steven Greenberg – is not in favor of the imposed consequence.  Look inside to see his response:


She may nab more headlines for controversy than her music, but even with her surplus of negative publicity it’s hard to diminish the talent of rapstress Azealia Banks.

When not pissing off the masses, the 28-year-old’s dropped isolated singles over the past few years to tide fans over after the release of 2016’s ‘SLAY-Z’ mixtape.  Even going as far as posting the full tracklist to ‘Fantasea II’ – the precursor to her long-awaited sophomore album, ‘Business and Pleasure’ (that’s now due for a 2019 release), Banks has confused fans and news outlets alike about which of her wealth of musical gems are tied to which parent project.

Now, laying that confusion to rest, the Rap diva’s taken to Instagram to announce the release of ‘Yung Rapunxel Pt. II.’  Never the conventionalist, she’s rolled out the project in quite the unique manner.  See what we mean below:
