They’re both New Yorkers, both have an affinity for British music (see Banks’ history with XL Recordings and exploration of Garage music) and are both renown for poignant and emotive storytelling.

With all of this mind, a case could be made to argue that Azealia Banks is the new Madonna.

Leading the conversation? Azealia herself.

‘Creed II’ is easily one of the year’s most anticipated movies and its musical component has us even more buzzed.

The boxing flick, which sees Michael B. Jordan return as lead Apollo Creed, will be paired with a total knockout of a soundtrack.

Aiming for a knockout, Mike WiLL Made-It has lined up an all-star cast for ‘Creed II: The Album’ – a collection he’s producing.

With the set seemingly taking a cue from the Kendrick Lamar “curated” ‘Black Panther: The Album,’ it’s fitting that K.Dot is one of the superstar names appearing on the project.

Joining him are the likes of Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Ella, Mai, and many more!

Michelle Obama may no longer be a resident of White House, but she remains one of the world’s most revered women.

And now the former First Lady is inviting the masses to get to know her by way of new memoir, ‘Becoming Michelle Obama.’

Ariana Grande has proven that dashing tradition to the side has its rewards.

An immediate fan magnet, the track exploded on both streaming and retail formats – landing Ari her first ever #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Michael B. Jordan kicked off 2018 with a ‘Black Panther’ sized bang and is closing it on an equally notable level.

For, just weeks before his boxing blockbuster ‘Creed 2’ hits the big screen, he’s been named a GQ Man Of The Year.

Aptly, he’s nabbed one of four covers for the publication’s December issue and poses it up for a stylish winter-themed shoot.

It’s his accompanying interview feature, though, that best captures the actor’s journey, drive, and goals for the future.
