The 2016 BET Awards was epic and by far one of the best awards the Network has done so far. The show was hosted by “Black-ish” stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross who’s great  chemistry and playfulness energized fans and prepared audiences at the Microsoft Theater and across the world for a fun show. The show was hot from start with Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar getting everyone in formation to the close out with the beautiful Sheila E honoring her mentor and friend Prince. I can recap the in between and share my behind the scenes photos after the break. READ MORE

Monster 2?

It’s been quite a year for Rap-rockstar, Future. In the past 12 months, we’ve seen the release of his third studio album, DS2, which just went platinum last month, and fourth album, EVOL. We loved the eclectic topics and banging beats we heard on mixtapes Purple Reign, and What A Time To Be Alive, a joint mixtape featuring Canadian superstar, Drake. We’ve also heard about him in the news recently for winning a messy custody battle with R&B superstar and ex-fiancée, Ciara. And in the same breath, he dropped his suit against her. It seems like he’s on a winning streak, especially after dropping the mixtape art for Monster 2, a follow-up to his 2014 effort, on Spinrilla just last week, but now we’re just left wondering: when is it coming out?

Drake At The Top!

According to Drake’s instagram post this morning, he is excited to announce that he has held the #1 spot on two types of the BillBoard categories consecutively for over a month. Views has done numbers on scales that I am sure Drake never imagined it would! The album is amazing and that has definitely shown through the number of recent listens and sales.

Drake posted that the album “V I E W S” is on the Billboard 200 for the 6th week in a row and his single “One Dance” is #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the 5th week in a row! Can you say a m a z i n g?

There is always criticism and for this particular album it came from two different angles, some thought it wasn’t “hard” enough and some thought it was great how it was. Drake always gets a lot of heat for allegedly “pretending” to be something that he is not through his songs but personally I think this album was definitely is Drake. He makes songs that you can just cruise to in your car and they are usually very sentimental which is perfectly fine!

I love his angle in the industry and I am very proud of him!

I Guess Moving On Fast Runs In The Family!

Word on the street is Khloe Kardashian and Odell Beckham looked really cozy this memorial day weekend. If you haven’t heard, Khloe Kardashian has officially broke things off with Lamar Odom and she has seemingly quickly moved on to NFL star, Odell Beckham as the pictures suggested at Drake’s pool party this past weekend. She also isn’t the only one who has moved on. Want to know who else made an appearance?

Not to far behind her of course was her sister Kylie Jenner. Yes, and I bet you all can guess who she was with too, PARTYNEXTDOOR! I guess the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, huh? People are so messy. I’m not going to just exclusively leave that statement for celebrities because it goes for everyone. I just don’t understand how you were just so in love with Tyga and Kehlani, respectively, but now you all are kissing up on one another not too long after.

This is why people think it’s okay to not have morals, values, or respect for relationships or people that they are potentially pursuing. The people they look up to are in and out of the media doing these wild things like it’s nothing.

I really try not to judge but this is just too much. There is no way you can move on that fast without thinking of the person that you were just with. That is unless you were pretending your feelings that entire time, but if that’s the case, then why would you even waste yours and their time?

Billboard Music Awards!

Was anyone really in tune with the whole Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, and Drake situation going on? Well, it’s nothing necessarily really major but I’m very observant so I just always think about how certain things that are publicized make people feel. If you want to know what I’m referring to exactly, it is all over the media that Meek Mill has not only he been really lowkey lately but he won Best Rap Album of the year last night at the 2016 BillBoard Music Awards. Guess who he beat?

Meek mill beat Kendrick Lamar, Dre, Future, and **drumroll please** , Drake! I know I was a bit extra on announcing that but because Drake is such an emotional human being, I just wonder how he feels about that. I am very proud of Meek Mill and his win but I just can’t help but think how Drake feels about this.

Especially, after the beef and this diss tracks that were made back and forth, I know I am not the only one who is curious if Drake saw this coming? However, it’s really not about Drake, this is Meek Mill’s time to shine and it just proves that God will make your enemies your footstool. It may even happen sooner than you think!

Congrats to Meek Mill, you deserve it!

I do not know if everyone agrees with the song, “Started from the bottom”, but wherever Drake started from, he is definitely here now! Drake just confirmed that his album “Views” has sold a million copies in one week. Have you bought yours yet?

This is good news for an artist considering the fact that it is very easy to download free music these days. Drake, often referred to as  the sentimental artist by many, never stops grinding and it clearly pays off. The album “Views” is a big milestone for him and I believe he is more than grateful for where life has taken him. Truth be told, many people make fun of how corny Drake can be at times, (including myself), but that doesn’t change the fact that he makes music that many people appreciate, can relate to and can vibe with.

I’ve heard different reviews about this latest album, saying that most of the songs are “slow”, but I’m pretty sure that this is the kind of music that Drake prefers to make. If you don’t like it then, that’s fine because as an artist once your following is built up and sturdy your creativity flourishes even more. When you make good music then that’s just what you do and Drake is continuously showing us that this is what he was made for.

Make sure you all get that album!

Drake has Released VIEWS Album

FullSizeRender (8)

After months of anticipation, Drake has dropped his 4th studio album entitled Views. The Canadian rapper has been teasing fans and music connoisseurs for quite some time about the album’s official title and release date.

 

Several weeks prior to the album’s release, Drake introduced fans to two singles from the album. The single entitled “Pop Style”, featuring Kanye West and Jay-Z, serves an eerie melody underlining the strong lyrical prowess of Jay-Z and Kanye who are rightfully credited on the song as “the throne.” While the second single “One Dance” featuring Wiz Kid provides the perfect afro-punk melody for approaching summer. These distinct singles left fans eager to lay ear to the album and the wait is finally over!
