‘There’s a vivacious woman inside my body that’s being set free,’ proclaimed Sam Smith in the behind the scenes peek at the creation of his latest music video, ‘How Do You Sleep.’

‘Sleep’ – a mid-tempo jam – certainly awakened conversation around the performer getting into the groove and showing off his best two-step in its accompanying music video (dance moves his previous efforts haven’t showcased to this extent).  With an impressive #29 debut on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, Smith is looking to keep the conversation going with hopes of scoring his next top 20 hit.

Under the supervision of famed choreographer Parri$ (famous for her work with Janet Jackson, Ciara, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and more), look inside to see just how the magic of ‘Sleep’ came to be:


Drake, Nipsey Hussle, Meek Mill, Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Wale, and Swizz Beatz are just a few of the Hip Hop heavyweights assembled to guest star on ‘Port of Miami 2’ – the newest album from Rick Ross.

A conceptual sequel to his chart-topping debut studio album (2006), the LP comes as his first full length studio effort since 2017’s ‘Rather You Than Me.’ Preceded to chart battle by its tunes ‘Act a Fool,’ ‘Big Tyme,’ and ‘Gold Roses,’ days before its arrival Ross revealed a listen to its gem, ‘Turnpike Ike’ (as we reported here).

Now, he’s unveiled its accompanying music video.  See it and hear its parent album inside:


‘Only God Knows Why’ singer Kid Rock has us humming the tune and scratching our heads at why he’s recently taken to Twitter to slam Taylor Swift for aligning herself with the values of the Democratic Party.

The ‘You Need To Calm Down’ singer – who has been very vocal as of late about her support of the LGBTQ+ community – doubled down on the sentiment in her recent appearance in ‘Vogue’ magazine (click here to read).  Her comments – accompanied by updates on her new album ‘Lover’ and role in the forthcoming film ‘Cats’ –  must’ve struck a nerve with Rock (born Robert James Ritchie) as he took to Twitter to say:

Needless to say, the vile statement sent the songstress’s fan base – affectionately called #Swifties – into a frenzy.  Their stance was supported by Swift’s celebrity friends. Details inside:


Lady Gaga‘s chart-topping ‘Shallow’ may currently hold the record as the most awarded song in music history (click here to read), but if a relatively unknown singer-songwriter has his way the courts will be awarding him millions of dollars in damages for copyright infringement.

The ‘Star is Born’ soundtrack song is the center of a pending lawsuit from singer Steve Ronsen who claims Gaga and team ripped off his 2012 Soundcloud opus.  While not specifically disclosing the amount he is seeking in damages for the alleged infraction, his legal representative, Mark D. Shirian, confirms it will be in the ‘millions’ if this case goes to court.

Determined not to go down without a fight, Gaga’s secured the services of high powered attorney Orin Snyder to help her give a judge (or mediator) a million reasons why ‘Shallow’ is an original. Details inside:


It’s been almost a year since 6LACK saw his second studio album, ‘East Atlanta Love Letter,’ debut in the top 5 of the Billboard 200, but that’s not stopping the 27-year-old from pushing forward in its support.

The latest tune from the set to receive the video treatment is the Khalid-assisted ‘Seasons.’  A stunning visual directed by Emilie Badenhorst, the clip celebrates love in its many forms (romantic, platonic, familial) as they go through their respective seasons.

A celebrated limb on a royal Gospel family tree that includes her grandmother Mattie Moss Clark and the legendary Clark Sisters, Grammy-nominated songstress Kierra Sheard has been charged with carrying the legacy of the dynasty into the future by her lonesome.  At only 32-years-young, her answer to the call – courtesy of Urban-tinged Gospel-tunes like ‘You Don’t Know’, ‘Why Me’, ‘Indescribable,’ and more – has been to carve her own path of hit-filled ministry.

With a new project on the horizon featuring production from Urban hitmakers Missy Elliott, Harmony Samuels, and more, Sheard – despite spending over half her life in the spotlight – tells That Grape Juice she’s only just begun making her impact. 

Dishing on her highly anticipated new album and more, the globally recognized Gospel star talked about her role on the forthcoming Clark Sisters biopic on Lifetime, the McDonald’s ‘Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour,’ and so much more.

‘Truth Hurts’ is a lesson Lizzo may be learning the hard way as a result of a perceived diss launched in the direction of Rap hitmakers Future and Swae Lee.

Taking to social media, the burgeoning diva stated:

“Sometimes I get pissed that there are people who call future & swae lee rappers and still question whether or not I belong in the rap conversation…,” she wrote. “But then I remember I have the #4 song in the country, laugh, go back to my dream job and log off.”

Needless to say, the “shade grenade” set off a firestorm of comments in defense of the emcees.  Once the fire got too hot, Lizzo deleted the original message and later attempted to clarify her statements.  Read it all inside:
