Rihanna is set to finally quench the thirst for new music. Because she’ll be dropping a new collaboration with PARTYNEXTDOOR…tonight!

Full story below…


Though earning no shortage of critical acclaim upon its January 9 release, Alicia Keys‘Underdog’ – the second single from her long-awaited seventh studio album, ‘A.L.I.C.I.A.’ – was commercially panned.

Struggling to a #93 peak on the Hot 100, the Johnny McDaid-produced cut – which boasts chart-topper Ed Sheeran among its list of songwriters – seemed poise to suffer the same fate as its Miguel-assisted predecessor, ‘Show Me Love’ (which peaked at #90).

In an ironic twist of fate, ‘Underdog’s chart story could be set to reverse.  Response to the global coronavirus pandemic, the very reason the release date of the song’s parent project was postponed (click here to read more), is giving it an unexpected second wind.

Dua Lipa‘s here to save Pop music with her new single, ‘Break My Heart.’

The follow-up to her most recent duo of hits, ‘Physical,’ and the Hot 100 top 5 smash, ‘Don’t Start Now,’ ‘Break’ comes as the latest taste from her highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia.’

As we reported here and here, Vanessa Hudgens, Jaime King, and Queen of Pop Madonna are among the big names in Hollywood being royally dragged for making statements many deem ‘insensitive’ in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

While the heat around Hudgens has cooled, Madge and King’s backlash endures as critics considered their COVID-19 commentary ‘tone deaf’ due to seemingly disregarding the needs of the working class.  Their messages suggested the disease outbreak, despite infecting over 450,000 globally as of time reported, ultimately serves a purpose of good as it’s forced people to unite and cherish what matters most – a sentiment recently echoed by Grammy nominee Keyshia Cole.

Taking to Instagram, the ‘Heaven Sent’ hitmaker referenced a quote that asserted the pandemic was not only sent to be ‘an ally in our evolution,’ but that it’s also helpful as it’s allowed the world to reduce travel (thereby reducing pollution) and reconnect with loved ones.

Her polarizing stance inside:


“I was building my life around this image of perfection, and it was really oppressive,” says Alicia Keys in her forthcoming semi-biographical book, ‘More Myself:  A Journey.’

Though putting musical endeavors on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic (namely rescheduling the release of her self-titled seventh studio album), the 39-year-old’s literary efforts are moving full steam ahead as evidenced by the round of press hitting TV and Web in its support.

Due on shelves March 31, ‘Myself’ sees Keys take fans behind the veneer of her picture perfect lifestyle to share issues from her childhood (i.e. self-esteem, racial identity, emptiness, etc.) that haunted her most of her adult life.  Making some jaw-dropping revelations across the 272-page memoir, look inside to see shocking excerpts:

Self-directed and “edited in one hour” (she boasts on Twitter), the 24-year-old shows off her assets in peep show fashion in the bedroom-set visual. Teasing viewers through its grainy footage, the Nokia flip phone-filmed clip puts the songstress center stage in ways like never before.
