Beyoncé Hits The Studio With Miguel

"... woah. creating for Virog's all weekend,"

Looks like Beyoncé is hard at work on her new album. She was snapped in the studio earlier tonight with Miguel, who posted the picture on his Instagram account. He;s currently enjoying success with his latest album "Kaleidoscope Dream" and his hit single "Adorn".

His caption lets me know that he's producing or writing some material for King B and the new album. It's good to see that she's switching things up with producers and writers. The last album, she worked with Kayne West, The Dream, Frank Ocean and others.

It's good to get some fresh meat involved with a project. But we all know, some how, she will get a writing AND production credit from whatever he comes up with during this session! Gotta love her!

Rihanna Unviels "Unapologetic" Album Cover

Rihanna just revealed the cover for her upcoming album. It's her seventh one, within seven years mind you, and it's called "Unapologetic". However, she should be more apologetic for using such trash as a cover. I love her, but I have to hate her at times...and this would be one of those times.

The project is lead by the new single "Diamonds" which has secured her a #1 hit on Billboard's new R&B Songs chart which debuted today. Why did the song reach the top spot on an R&B chart when it isn't even R&B boggles the hell out of me.

I just don't understand. I like nothing about this cover. I hate the adjectives scribbled across her face and body. Did Chris Brown add his graffiti to the cover? I'm sorry but it just looks tacky and ratchet. No bueno! I'm not a fan. Who approved this shit? People will sell poop on a stick now-a-days. Your thoughts?

Beyoncé Leaves "A Star Is Born" Film + Working On New Album

As I reported earlier, Beyoncé has threw in the towel on her staring role in Clint Eastwood's remake of the classic film "A Star Is Born". The singer was set to star in the film which was supposed to begin production in 2011 but was put on hold due to her pregnancy. Some feel that this is why she's dropping out completely this time.

In the downtime, Eastwood took on the starring role and promotion of another film. Another reason would be that the leading male role has yet to be cast as well. With the upcoming projects that she is about to take on, she couldn't commit due to a heavy booked schedule. Check out the article below.

Miguel Performs 'Adorn" On Letterman

This is my very first post about Miguel and it won't be the last. I never actually disliked him, I just hate his hair. I really hate it and it makes me not listen to his music or watch his videos. But, this damn song, I'm so in love with. When I first heard it, I was like who the hell is this? My best friend was like this Miguel. I was like, shit is this what I've been missing out on?

"Adorn" is definitely one of my favorite songs of the year. I've been listening to it non stop over the past few weeks. It just reminds me of the ol' skool Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis etc.. Then the performance he gave on David Letterman just set me off. He nailed every second of it. I watched it at least four times already.

The song is lifted from his sophomore album "Kaleidoscope Dream" which was released last week and manged to sell almost 69,000 copies. It secured him the #3 spot on Billboard's 200 Albums chart. The lead single has topped Billboard's R&B / Hip-Hop chart and sits at #31 on Billboard's Hot 100. Congratz Miguel. Check out his show stopping performance below.

Right after Solange premiered her amazing video for her new song "Losing You", she released a B-side to that track in digital format. The song is called "Sleep in the Park" and was produced by Tim Anderson and Dev Hynes.

While I don't think it's as catchy as "Losing You" it's some what decent. It's another 70's inspired cut with a lot of horns and a big batch of drums. Check out the track below.

Fresh Music | Eve - "She Bad Bad"

E-V-E is back and finally ready to step back into the spotlight. Eve dropped her first single yesterday called "She Bad Bad". The song is the lead single from her long awating album now called "Lip Lock" and it's due for release before the year is out.

She said “I wanted to really take what people loved of me and fell in love with in the beginning, with the Ruff Ryders and all of them, and combine it with where I am now,” See if she still has the flow that made her sick. Listen below.
