Hot girl summer just got even hotter thanks to Megan Thee Stallion and City Girls‘ star Yung Miami blessing fans with the joint effort, ‘Pastor.’

The Murda Beatz-produced cut is one of a whopping 36 found aboard Atlanta imprint Quality Control’s latest compilation album, ‘Control The Streets Volume 2.’ Calling on Migos star Quavo to rap the hook, Stallion leads the race with the first verse:

“I just landed, I ain’t pack a bag, I ain’t plan shit / Sent him all my info and I told him, ‘Get it handled’ / Crazy, couldn’t contain the p*ssy, now he hate me / Hard on them hoes, but for me, he’s a baby.”

Of course, Miami brings it home like only she can.  Curious to hear what the trio cooked up?  Listen inside:


Jay-Z‘s decision to partner with the NFL is creating unnecessary trouble for his brand.

An update on the story below…

Michelle Williams isn’t just a ‘Survivor,’ she’s a thriver.

It’s been 20 years since the multifaceted performer joined Destiny’s Child and cemented her spot as not only as a defining member of the legendary group but as a talent whose gift lends itself to many arenas.

Fending off the sometimes unkind pitchforks pointed her way online, she’s risen above to shine with projects such as ‘Heart To Yours’ and ‘Journey To Freedom’ – which featured the still bumping ‘Say Yes.’

Particularly potent has been her foray into Broadway and stage stage productions more broadly.

Join us below, as TGJ’s Retro Rewind revisits the likes of ‘Aida’, ‘The Color Purple’, and ‘Chicago.’


Jay-Z‘s earned quite the reputation for being a shrewd businessman over the years, but the ‘Big Pimpin’ performer’s latest string of business moves are stirring a big pot of controversy.

The 49-year-old – once celebrated for turning down an invite to perform at the NFL’s ‘Super Bowl’ due to the league’s controversial stance on the treatment of their players of color (namely Colin Kaepernick) – set headlines into a spin when it was announced his imprint, Roc Nation, would now be co-producing the affair (click here to read more).

As the polarizing move continued to dominate headlines, Jay justified the collaborative effort by stating:

“I think we’ve moved past kneeling and I think it’s time to go into actionable items.”

 He then added: “No, I don’t want people to stop protesting at all. Kneeling — I know we’re stuck on it because it’s a real thing — but kneeling is a form of protest. I support protest across the board. We need to bring light to the issue. I think everyone knows what the issue is — we’re done with that,” he added. “But now that we all know what’s going on, what are we going to do? How are we going to stop it? Because the kneeling was not about a job, it was about injustice.”
Days later it’s been revealed his newly developed relationship with the NFL has come with an extra token:  ownership stake in a team.  Details inside:

We’re among the many hoping there’s no cure in sight for the wave of Normani fever that’s sweeping through since she dropped her blazing new music video, ‘Motivation,’ early this morning (August 16).

Billed as the official first single from the singer’s yet-titled, forthcoming debut solo effort, the cut is the brainchild of a team of superstar writers, singers, and producers (Ariana Grande Max Martin, Ilya Salmanzadeh, and Savan Kotecha).

On this side of its release date the tune is already showing early signs of success (based on its digital sales and critical response), but some may not know it was preceded by a slew of promotional appearances in its support in a bid to build anticipation.  One stop (to our friends at Chicago’s B96 96.3 FM) caught up with the 23-year-old at this year’s Lollapalooza to discuss her new album, working with Grande, and so much more.

Published to the outlet’s Youtube just hours before ‘Motivation’s premiere, tuck inside to see how the singer’s responding to fan demands for the LP, fighting those debut album jitters, and so much more:
