Lil Nas X is in the middle of his biggest sales week yet thanks to the warm commercial response to the September 17 release of his debut album, ‘Montero.’

But while his fans continue to get acquainted with the controversial star’s new music, they’re still clinging to his hits of old – namely ‘Old Town Road.’

The Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted hit, found aboard X’s debut EP ‘7,’ has already ridden into Billboard history books for being the longest-running #1 single ever.  Now, just 8 months after becoming the most certified song in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America (and first to reach the 14x Platinum threshold), ‘Old’ has extended the record.


Tis the season…for the announcements of holiday albums!

Among the year’s most anticipated is Kelly Clarkson‘s ‘When Christmas Comes Around…’ – the follow-up to her Platinum-selling, 2013 holiday effort, ‘Wrapped In Red.’

Like ‘Red’ before it, ‘Around’ sees Clarkson take center stage as she puts her soaring spin on yuletide classics like ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,’ ‘All I Want for Christmas,’ ‘Last Christmas,’ ‘Santa Baby,’ ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,’ and more.  Also like ‘Red,’ the GRAMMY winner is calling on some of the biggest names in music to help put her fans in a Christmas mood.

Ahead of its October 15 arrival to digital shelves, look inside to see the LP’s full tracklist.


At the top of 2001, Christina Aguilera, P!nk, Mya, and Lil Kim rocked the music industry and history books alike with ‘Lady Marmalade’ – their unexpected, chart-topping remake of the 1974 Labelle classic of the same name.

As the song celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year, some fans of the four divas have been calling for a reunion to pay tribute to their soaring rendition while other music lovers – as evidenced Wednesday (September 22) – think it’s time the sexy tune be given an update.

See what we mean inside:


Entanglement never looked or sounded as good as it does via Kiana Ledé‘s latest single, ‘Ur Best Friend.’

The first taste of music from her yet-titled sophomore album, the sizzling cut – already enough to have tongues wagging by its lonesome – had tongues dragging floors once fans got a peek at its steamy music video.  Featuring Kehlani playing triple duty (song feature, video love interest, and director), the taboo-exploring clip also famously features rapper Vic Mensa as a supporting star.

With a #33 peak (as of time reported), the original incarnation of MoneyBagg Yo‘s ‘Wockesha’ serves as his third top 40 placement as a song leader and one of his biggest smashes yet.

In an bid to push the Real Red-produced hit to higher heights on the Hot 100, however, Yo has enlisted the help of Hip Hop & R&B veterans Lil Wayne and Ashanti for the tune’s remix.

Weezy already boasted an unofficial feature on the cut’s first version, but the revamp sees him contribute an added verse.  For Ashanti, the songbird’s inclusion was apt as ‘Wockesha’ samples the same Debarge classic,  ‘Stay With Me’ (1983), that she utilized for her 2002 #1 smash, ‘Foolish.’

9 months after announcing her intent to retire from the music industry, ‘How You Want It’ singer Teyana Taylor is granting the wish of fans who wanted one last hurrah before she closes this chapter of her career.

Titled ‘The Last Rose Petal’ tour, the North American jaunt – which kicks off November 7 in San Francisco – will see the 30-year-old rock stages in major continental cities like Houston, Chicago, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, and more before making a final pit stop in Atlanta.

Speaking on the inspiration behind its title, Taylor told fans:

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard…. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer. Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell…”

Jennifer Hough, the woman suing Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty over allegations including harassment and witness intimidation, appeared on ‘The Real’ moments ago.

Fighting back tears, she broke her silence about the lawsuit she filed against the couple and her rationale for making the petition.

During the impassioned interview, Hough alleges that she is being pressured by The Pettys to withdraw her statement about the 1994 sexual assault Petty was convicted for carrying out on her.
