It wasn’t even a year ago that Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday’ jumped over the 1.5-million mark in sales, and now her producer Kane Beatz is saying she’s already back in the studio. According to Kane, the music sounds “crazy.”
He’s young and successful, but that doesn’t mean Drake hasn’t thought about settling down with the right woman someday. In fact, as he revealed during a recent interview with Elle magazine, he’s really a one-woman type of guy.
Yesterday, Rihanna revealed the covers for her upcoming album ‘Talk That Talk.’ Yes, you read that right — covers, as in “more than one.” Because when you’re one of the most prolific hitmakers in recent history and you’re about to release one of the most highly anticipated records of the year, you don’t have to play by everyone else’s rules.
Swift, 21, has been recognized before by this prestigious music industry trade, receiving titles for Top Country Artist, Top Country Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist. But this new recognition makes her the youngest artist ever to earn the honor.
The sixth annual BET Hip-Hop Awards aired last night, offering an impressive array of performances from the old school (including a show-closing medley from Heavy D) and the new (Wiz Khalifa delivering a high-energy rendition of ‘Taylor Gang’).
Nothing says ‘happy holidays’ like a freshly wrapped collection of Lady Gaga tunes. Even though she just released her latest album, ‘Born This Way,’ back in May, she’s working overtime to make sure she has new music for her fans in time for the holiday season.
In fact, come November, Lady Gaga fans will have two new releases available to buy: a live DVD, ‘Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden,’ as well as ‘Born This Way the Remix,’ a CD that collects 14 new versions of tracks from ‘Born This Way.’
With just two weeks to go before the planned release of his upcoming album ‘Take Care,’ Drake has had to do a little last-minute rearranging on the schedule. Thanks to licensing issues, ‘Take Care’ will now reach stores on November 15.
But Drake didn’t stop at postponing his new album — he also bumped back his Club Paradise tour, which will now wait until 2012 to hit the road.
The New Yorker doesn’t usually devote much space to young artists or current trends, but they made an exception for Taylor Swift in their most recent issue, giving a full profile of the artist that, as they point out, has sold more albums in the last five years than any other musician.
Swift was characteristically frank in the article, offering her thoughts on life and love as a 21-year-old superstar and offering a few hints of what fans can expect to hear from her next album, due in 2012.
You’d hardly expect an artist responsible for frothy pop songs such as ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca,’ ‘Shake Your Bon-Bon’ and ‘She Bangs’ to be at the center of a political controversy, but that’s apparently exactly where Ricky Martin is these days.
Rumor has it that an upcoming Martin gig in Honduras may be canceled — not to mention the star’s visa is in jeopardy — because government officials disapprove of the singer’s sexual orientation.
Not so long ago, J. Cole was just another budding rapper hoping for a shot at the big time. In fact, his first meeting with his future mentor and label boss Jay-Z occurred when he brushed past the hip-hop icon on the street, failing to get his attention.
Now, of course, all that persistence has paid off: He’s one of the hottest young performers in hip-hop, and if industry predictions are correct, he could top the Billboard charts next week with his debut album ‘Cole World: The Sideline Story.’
