Circa 2009, YouTube- still in its formative years- saw a wave of charismatic characters glide into its platform and bolster its popularity with engaging original content.

At the forefront? The quick-witted and fast-paced personality Qaadir Howard.

Then in high-school, the entertainer’s YouTube channel saw him share side-splitting tales prised from his everyday life armed with unforgettable one-liners and comedic references to Pop culture.

Many believe his personality was the blueprint for Bretman Rock‘s lucrative social media act.

Now, those who wondered why Howard did not yield fruit from the garden he had a hand in planting have learned that Shane Dawson may be to blame.

Burna Boy continues to blaze!

The African Giant is gearing up for the release of new album ‘Twice As Tall’ and has unleashed ‘Wonderful’ as the first taste of what’s to come.

Arriving on the heels of his BET Awards win for Best International Act is the track’s accompanying video.

Directed by K, the visual puts the regality of Burna’s Nigerian heritage on front-stage. A thread that is purposefully sewn into the song itself.

Speaking on the release, the GRAMMY and BRITs nominee said:

“This song is about the ‘wonders’ of seeing the impact of my music on people’s lives as they shared their joy, pain and pleasure with me while I toured the world. It serves as a note that no matter how far you go, or how hard you work; you must be ready to come home, the pandemic forced us all to take refuge in our homes. Above all, Africa is home, it is the motherland to all people. For us to truly matter, Africa has to matter.”

After years of swirling rumors, singer August Alsina – via an interview with Angela Yee – has confirmed he had a love affair with Jada Pinkett Smith.  As if that wasn’t enough to get tongues wagging, the 27-year-old singer says her Academy Award-nominated husband, Will Smith, allegedly gave the relationship his blessing.

In the interview (published June 30), Alsina said:

“I actually sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.”

Reportedly introduced to Pinkett, 48, in 2015 by her son Jaden, Alsina detailed how he and the actress became so close he fell in love with her.

“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”

That’s not all he said.  See the interview that has everyone talking.

John Legend may have given his latest album, ‘Bigger Love,’ one of the biggest promo pushes any Urban act has seen this year, but those combined efforts didn’t result in much love from music buyers.

Released June 19, the LP – preceded by singles ‘Actions,’ ‘Conversations in the Dark,’ and its title track – went to chart battle with little buzz despite a media onslaught that featured appearances in or on high profile print, television, radio, and Web outlets.

Industry analysts suggested ‘Bigger’s first week sales would lodge Legend’s lowest ever (as we reported here).  Now that all sales and streams have been tallied, it seems their assessment was accurate.
