Beyoncé releases new album The Lion King: The Gift: Stream

Beyoncé has unleashed her star-studded soundtrack album, The Lion King: The Gift. Featuring Donald Glover, JAY-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, Kendrick Lamar, and many more, all 13 tracks are now available to stream below via Apple Music and Spotify. Beyoncé has described the collection as “sonic cinema” and “a new experience of storytelling.” She explained, “I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.” “I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she added. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.” Among the many highlights include a collaboration between Bey, JAY, and Glover (“Mood 4 Eva”), a mother-daughter duet (“Brown Skin Girl”), and all of the assists by 070 Shake, Tierra […]

Rihanna hints at possible title for new reggae album

Rihanna has had her Navy itching with anticipation since teasing a new album back in winter. Now, in a new interview with T Magazine, she’s confirmed that she’s still hard at work on the effort — and that fans may be impacting the final product. The Barbados Ambassador reiterated that the project is indeed a reggae record, though she refrained from giving any firm timeline for its completion. She added that she’s leaning towards calling the LP — which will mark her ninth full-length — R9, a name that her Navy has been drilling into her head. “So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy,” she said. “I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?’ How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?” (Read: 10 Most Anticipated Pop Albums of 2019) Elsewhere, RiRi once again touched on her deteriorated relationship with Drake. Last summer, she said the pop stars “don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either,” so it shouldn’t be surprising that she doesn’t see another “Work”-level collaboration in the near future. “Not anytime soon, I don’t see it happening,” […]

Paris Jackson defends father Michael Jackson: “chillax my dudes”

The new documentary Leaving Neverland has brought renewed scrutiny to Michael Jackson’s past relationships with underage boys and allegations of sexual misconduct. However, Jackson’s only daughter, Paris, is standing by her father. Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Jackson, 20, “firmly believes” her father is innocent of the allegations levied against him. She’s since taken to Twitter to address the documentary and respond to both fans and critics of her father. Jackson initially tweeted, “y’all take my life more seriously than i do. calm yo tittaaaaysss.” After receiving some blowback for the flippant nature of her comment, she sought to expound on her stance: “i didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, i know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also…. it feels better to mellow out.” She added, “smoke some weed n think about the bigger picture. chillax my dudes.” When a supporter of Jackson argued that “the bigger picture is your father’s legacy ruined and his name smeared forever,” Jackson responded, “so….. not love and peace and trying to carry that message out? tabloids […]
