Chris Brown released some major news earlier tonight along with a brand new song. His new album "X" has been in the works for a bit and now has an official release date. The album is set to drop this Summer on July 16th. The project will feature productions from Diplo, Roc Star, Eric Bellinger and more
Along with that news, he dropped the tracked "I Can't Win". The song won't be featured on his album but it sounds like a winner. The song shows a more grown and mature Breezy. It was seen in his interviews and can now be heard in his music. Listen to the track after the break.
Fantasia looks great in yellow, and she's still doing the promotional ventures for her brand new album "The Side Effects of You" which was released last week. The project is projected to come in at #2 on Billboard's 200 Albums with between 60-70K units sold.
The singer visited The View earlier today looking phenomenal as ever. She sad down with the hosts to talk about her life post and past American Idol, and she also gave a live performance of her single "Lose to Win". Check out the goods below.
Speechless is a term that most of us are familiar With, we've all been speechless at one point or another and so have some of favorite artists. This Blast from the Past will be about....you guessed it....songs that are titled "Speechless".
There are mainly four that I personally like. They are from Beyonce, Ciara, Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys. Each of these women crafted a song and titled it "Speechless" and they each have their very own distinctive sounds and meaning even though they have the same name. Check it out below.
And it's not about Kim Kardashian right? Ray J can't pour me water and tell me it's strawberry kool-aid. I can see right through him like he was bathing in Windex. The fool premiered the video for his latest single "I Hit It First" which is a direct shot at his ex girlfriend, you know who.
The video features a splitting image of the reality star as well as video recording frame work and to top it off, he's watching a reality television show on E! towards the end of the video. But it's not about Kim K. Kanye West needs to slap a bottle across his head. Check out the video below.
A few weeks back, I brought you news about Beyonce re-recording Amy Winehouse's classic hit "Back to Black". The track was produced by Jay-Z and features Andre 3000. It was recorded for The Great Gatsby soundtrack which hits theaters next month.
Over the past few weeks, snippets of the cut have been making it's way online but now the song has premiered on radio in full. You be the judge below and let us know if they two of them did Amy justice. Listen below.
Ashanti's latest single "Never Should Have" is one her best songs to date in my opinion. The track is lifted from her upcoming album "BraveHeart" which is due out June 11th. This songs serves as the official second single from the project following 2011's"The Woman You Love".
The video was just released and it was directed by Sanji Senaka & was shot in California. It centers around relationships struggles while capturing the very meaning of the song. We also see a very emotional side of Ashanti. Check out the clip below.
Natalia Kills is still putting the finishing touches on her sophomore album "Trouble" which is set to be released later this year. So far, we've heard the singles "Controversy", "Heart to Break" & "Problem". There's no word on if any of those will be featured on the album or not.
But now we have a new anthem from the dark pop diva called "Feel My Self". Give it a go below.
I still don't see the fascination with her but I'm sure a f w of you will enjoy this new leaked track from her. Apparently a snippet of Lana Del Rey's song "Party Girl" hit the net earlier this month and now the song has hit the inter-web in full.
It's an unreleased track said to be from her "Paradise" recordings. The reggae filled track shows a more upbeat side of the sad, dark and gloomy side that I'm forced to listen to at times (you know who you are). Give the track a spin below.
The lord does answer prayers. Rapper Azealia Banks' Twitter days are finally OVER as the rapper was forced to relinquish her account over to her management team who will now provide updates for the star on the social networking site.
The move comes after months and months of the brat igniting fights and spats with other people in the business. She's fought with Rita Ora, Perez Hilton, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Angel Haze, A$AP Rocky, and I could go on and on...but I wont.
Not only for the fights but also her personal tweets in general. Some of which are offensive, and senseless. So her management is trying to clean up her act before her album drops and you know a good image is requited to release a successful album. So what did they do to her tweets?
This is probably one of the most sexiest songs that Alicia Keys has ever crafted. The video is hot and even hotter with Maxwell in it. The song is for the grown and sexy. Yesterday she released the video for "Fire We Make" and it's her latest single form her album "Girl on Fire".
The clip takes place in New Orleans in the hot and sticky Summer. Alicia is working in a hotel and after laying eyes on him she begins to do nothing but lust and use cold ice to cool her off. Check out the steamy video after the break.
Was it awkward? You be the judge. Ashanti is still getting her coins from her stint on Fuse TV where she interviews artists on a regular. This time she was forced to sit down with her ex-boyfriend Nelly. The two dated off and on for the past 8 years and just recently called it quits.
She questioned him about is new music, the way the music industry has changed, and the most awkward moment was when she asked him about the type of girls he like. He responded with saying bad breath is a turn off. Then looked at shanti and said he loves a nice set of thighs. There were lots of laughs and giggles so I think it went pretty smooth. Check out the clip below.
Fantaisa released her new album "The Side Effects of You" just a few days ago and she's promoting it like cray. The American Idol alumni stopped by Good Morning America yesterday to perform another solid rendition of her single "Lose to Win".
As always, she delivered a stellar performance minus a few vocal hiccups. Her new single "Without Me" features Kelly Rowland & Missy Elliott and the video shoot is already in the work according to Tasia herself. Check out the performance below.
Beyonce's new H&M campaign has gone full force.She recently released her spread for the company and debuted her shopping bag for them, now the commercial has been released. She flaunts her new sexy beach body having nothing but fun in the sun.
She's sporting the new collection at H&M which will be available in stores and worldwide next month. She also debuted a new song which was penned by Sia. It's called "Standing on the Sun" with some hot choreography to go with it. Check out the 90 second clip after the break.
Well, if you get a chance to buy or sell your child for Beyonce tickets, then this should be good news for you. Here's some proof that the "Mrs. Carter" world tour will come to a DVD or Blu-Ray near you. The tour kicked off last week and will run until the end of August.
Below you can check out some promo footage of the bigger than life event. The entire tour features eight female dancers, her live band and les twins. She hasn't performed anything new and it seems like she won't. She's touring from the latest album "4" as well as other hits from her catalog.
I'm starting to believe that we won't get a new Beyonce album for a while. In her interview with "In Shape" magazine, she stated that she wanted to start having more kids after this current tour. So that simply means that we may not get any new material for quite a while if that is the case. You can go cry now.
Yesterday Ciara finally dropped the long awaited video for her single "Body Party". The sensual anthem is the first single from her upcoming album "Ciara" and is due out July 9th. The clip was directed by X and features her lover Future as well as other rappers.
Ludacris & Trinidad James also make appearances. Watch as Future see into the future and Ciara sizzles in her lingerie giving him a nice private dance in the bedroom. This video definitely shows a different side of Ciara. Check it out below.
Fantasia rocked the house on American Idol tonight. The idol champion return to what started it all for her and gave one hell of a performance. She sang her single "Lose to Win" which is the first lifted from her upcoming album "The Side Effects of You".
The album drops this coming Tuesday with features from Kelly Rowland, Missy Elliott and a slew of productions from Harmony from BOE Global. A few days ago, she previewed her entire album and I got first listen. Check out the splendid performance after the break.
If you've been under a rock, then you missed the announcement about Ciara giving her "One Woman Army" album a face-lift and a 360 degree turn around. The album's title was changed, the singles were swapped and the project is going in a totally different direction. Not the patriotic way we saw last year.
The name of the album is now called "Ciara" and will be released on July 9th via Epic Records. The lead single "Body Party" and it's video will debut on Monday April 22nd. It all left fans and critics confused so she explained the switches and why they were necessary. Check it below.
The stunning Vicky Nolan just uploaded a brand new track onto her official Soundcloud page. The London songbird soars on this new track written by herself, Ellie Wyatt and Paul Drew. The three of them seem like a perfect combination because this song is just everything.
I don't know quite yet if she's putting together a record or if she's just recording great tunes for the fans, but whatever the case, I do hope to here more records like this. It's vocally and lyrically amazing. Give the song a listen below. It's called "Fly Me Away". Share your thoughts.
Looks familiar? Well it's not T-Boz, Chilli & Left Eye, but the three young starlets who are portraying them in a new VH1 biopic. From left to right you have Drew Sidora, Keke Palmer and Lil Mama. The young ladies were chosen to star in the film.
The biopic is currently in post production as filming wrapped up a few weeks ago. It's called "Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story" and it doesn't have a release date as of yet. But this photo should hold you over. How do you think they fared in the customers? Yay or nay?
Damn...these two are some rich bitches. According to a new report from the International Business Times, Beyonce and Jay-Z have become music's very first billionaire couple. Both have enjoyed successful career endeavors and Bey's latest stints have shot them over the billion dollar make.
She is said to be making over $116 million for her current "Mrs. Carter" world tour, her endorsement with H&M is said to be in the millions and lets not forget her $50 million Pepsi deal. Add that along with her other endorsement over the years with L'orel, her perfume line, movies, albums and much more.
The entire album is available for live stream now on Youtube. One of the standout tracks and next single is "Torn Apart" which features Rita Ora. The two have already shot the video a few months ago in Thailand. Check it out below as well as the entire album.
We're just a few weeks away from the release of LL Cool J's new album "Authentic". The LP celebrate his 30 year mark in the music game and will feature artists and productions from Brad Paisley, Eddie Van Halen, Snoop Dogg, Charlie Wilson, Travis Barker, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Bootsy Collins.
The name of this hit is called "Closer" and it features songstress Monica singing the catchy hook and putting the very best add-libs that I've heard in a while on a featured track. There's no word on if it will become a single, but I hope it will. Listen to the cut below.
If you missed your favorite BET show "The Game" last night then you can catch it right here on Dimp-Zone. In this clip, we see Kiera struggle with the pressures of being a "has-been" and blows through money that she doesn't have. Also, her and Blue's relationship begins to ignite.
Tasha is still struggling to find out who her heart belongs to. She got advice from Chardonnay who told her it's okay to love two people and now, things are a bit out of control. This episode guest stars Angela Simmons (who was terrible if I must say). Check it out below.
Yesterday Azealia Banks dropped the long awaited video for her single "Yung Rapunxel". It's the first offering from her upcoming album "Broke With Expensive Taste" which is due out later this year. The clip was directed by Jam Sutton.
Inside you will witness some freak, next level type shit....kind of demonic if you will. I'm sure within the next few weeks she will be plagued with the Illuminati and devil worshiping rumors. But this is her direction and this is how she visions it...I guess. Check out the weird clip below.
Yesterday, I was invited to an album listening party. It was for Fantasia and her new album "The Side Effects of You". The lady looked GREAT! Red is definitely her color. During the hour and a half gathering, she previewed a few songs and played a few others in full and also had a few familiar faces in the studio with her.
Of course Harmony and the BOE Global crew were present, he crafted her entire album. The two talked about the recording process and how things came about, The-Dream, Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams were in the building and it was revealed that the two of them have a duet in the works to Michelle's new album.
We also saw the young and talented Jamia as well as Amber Riley from the FOX television show Glee. Tasia took time out to let us viewers ask her a few questions. One lucky fan will have the chance to meet Fantasia during her next tour which was cool.
Drake is one bold bastard and I love him for it! The rapper released a brand new track last night called "Girls Love Beyonce". The song was produced by hitmaker Noah "40" Shebib and heavily samples Destiny's Child's "Say My Name".
That part is sang by Drake and James Fauntleroy who is featured on the track. The cut will not be featured on his upcoming album but it's enough to hold fans over and me too because I love it. Give it a go below!
These two bombshells are at it again. This time, it looks as if fans are igniting the beef between the two and they are feeding directly into the drama. Now that Ciara's album is on the way, she been off doing radio interviews to promote the newly revamped project. Unfortunately, the people are only interested in the Rihanna beef because that's the #1 question asked.
Occasionally she's asked about her relationship with rapper Furture. So any who, she was asked about Rihanna, she gave a lengthy response saying that she's nuts and word got around to Rihanna by the navy and enough shade was tossed to cool off the Sahara Desert. Then Ciara clapped back harder than her previous albums. Check it below.
Well, this makes total sense, I was wondering why the album was called "One Woman Army" and there wasn't a song in sight on it that she released last year. Well that's because the entire project has been revamped. The album is now simply called "Ciara".
It's a self titled 5th studio album and above is the official covers. Fans are pissed, some are ecstatic but it leave many minds to wonder about the management of the project and how it got a face-lift so soon without notice. The album will drop June 4th via Epic Records.
FRESH MUSIC | FANTASIA - "WITHOUT ME" (FEAT. KELLY ROWLAND & MISSY ELLIOTT) & "SUPERNATURAL LOVE" (FEAT. BIG K.R.I.T.)
A few days ago, Fantasia released her official second single from her album "The Side Effects of You", which hits stores next Tuesday. The song features Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott and is called "Without Me". The track was produced by Harmony.
Also, earlier today, another track surfaced which features Big K.R.I.T. and is called "Supernatural Love". Both tracks sound amazing and I can't wait for a video with Kelly & Missy. The production is sick. Give both tracks a listen below.
Ciara has finally released her full track-listing for the upcoming "One Woman Army" and it looks as if the entire project was revamped. It features 10 songs with only Nicki Minaj and Future as features. Also, the songs that she gave us last year "Sweat", "Sorry", "Got Me Good" didn't make the cut.
Neither did the title track that we heard so much about "One Woman Army". Maybe they will be included on the deluxe edition piece or something? Who knows, but check out the full list after the break.
For years, two of the most powerful people in Hollywood have been plagued with rumors about their long lasting relationship. They've been called swingers, people think that Will Smith is bisexual, folks believed that Jada Pinkett had an affair with Marc Anthony. All of which neither have been confirmed or denied.
But what seems to stick out most to the public is this so called "open relationship" that they may or may not have. A few weeks ago, Jada interview on the Huffington Post where she gave a broad statement about their relationship. It made people believe that it was indeed an open relationship.
Well, since then folks have been running off at the mouth and the world wants more clarification. So Jada gave them just that. She took to her Facebook page and simply posted "Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want." Check it out below.
Vicky Nolan has graced us with another stunning Youtube video. The songstress uploaded a video of her singing a brand new track called "My Cards, Your Table" which was written by herself, Kev Butcher and Ellie Wyatt.
It's another solid effort. Check out the video below.
Just when you thought "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up" was done, Nicki Minaj gives you yet another video from her latest effort. She gave "Up In Flames" the video treatment and released it earlier today for her barbz.
The video is simple, cheap. There's really no other way to put it. The is definitely packed full of of metaphors and punch lines, but the video doesn't do the song any justice....nor does her acting like she was going strong on that piano. But she still looked good. Watch below.
|Janet Strickland (the grandmother) Charged with first-degree murder|
Janet Strickland was reported "sick" and tired of her husband and wanted him dead and gone. She talked her grandson, who is also named William Strictland, into doing the job and he did. He shot his grandfather six times in the back at 3:30am on March 3rd. After the killing the two stole his money and went on a shopping spree.
Avril Lavigne has unleashed her newest rock anthem from her upcoming studio album. The lead single from the project is called "Here's To Never Growing Up". It made it's premiere on the Ryan Seacrest radio show and is now available on iTunes where it's currently sitting comfortably at #18.
The video production began yesterday and it will feature Lavigne's ex-bandmates, Evan Taubenfeld and Devin Bronson. It's said to take place during a high school senior prom which should be interesting. Give the song a spin below.
Tragedy struck in the Bronx, NY Sunday as a family learned that they had lost their 9 year old daughter Justice Williams due to suicide. The young girl was found hanging in the bathroom with a white cloth around her neck.
She was said to have had issues adjusting to being a big sister to her new born baby brother. Family members quoted her saying that she wanted to die and that she was suicidal. Her step father admitted her to therapy in which they thought was helping....they were wrong.
Beyonce is about to kick off her "Mrs. Carter" world tour this month over seas and it wraps up in August. Along the tour she will headline countless festivals and Chime for Change is one of them. The event will take place on June 1st along with Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Timbaland and more.
Below is her official commercial for the event. She praises her mother Tina Knowles for being able to find all of the good qualities within every person that she meets. Check it out below.
This looks to be a chilling thriller. The Michael Bay produced film is called "The Purge" and will hit theaters May 31st. and the concept is very interesting. It takes place in the near future and the United States has become a utopia. It's better than it has ever been throughout the history of the country.
Unemployment rate is at a 1%, crime rate is at an all time low...VERY LOW and the reason being because the government created a program called "The Purge". For one night out of the year over a 12 hour period, nothing is against the law. The emergency lines and hospitals are all closed and all criminal activity, including murder, rape, robbery and more are deemed legal until sunrise.
The Purge acts as a therapeutic cleansing for the American people to get out all of their anger and frustration in one night which keeps the crime rate low. The film centers around a middle class family that are normally protected from the purge but this time allows an outside into their home and brings unwanted company. Check out the trailer below.
Ray J called into a radio station in a whack attempt to clear up rumors about his new song "I Hit It First", which you can listen to here, being about Kim Kardashian. He tried but no one bought it. None of the radio DJ's, not even the listeners.
I mean, the proof is in the lyrics. There's is no running and hiding from this one. He kept saying it's about fun and people are reading too deep. Boy please, you're crying for some attention. Listen into the phone call after the break.
Ciara isn't holding back anymore. She's an open book...kind of like how Chris Brown is now. The diva is still promoting her "One Woman Army" album very hard and most recently paid a visit to a Philadelphia's hottest radio station Hot 107.9 with Q-Deezy.
She spilled the tea on her new album and it's long delay, she opened up about her new boo Future and discussed the Rihanna beef and a lot more. The album is due out June 4th. In the mean time, check out the interview below.
|This image does not reflect that the article is about them as it is used for reference|
Following in the footsteps of Sam Champion, Thomas Roberts, Anderson Cooper and now Jenna Wolfe – another high profile TV newsperson is thinking of coming out of the closet to reveal they too are gay.
Everyone in the business knows the truth about the person we see on TV five days a week, however recently after life became much more public, the pressure is mounting. It’s very difficult to let people into half of your life and then close the door. Now the door is open you cannot shut it.
Who do you think it is? Comment and answer below.

Former Disney star Selena Gomez has unleashed her brand new single from her upcoming album. The hard knocking pop anthem is called "Come & Get It". The song will be available on iTunes this coming Tuesday.
Give it a spin below. It's a bit different for her but it works.
Yesterday Ray J caused a bit of a stir with the cover for his new single called "I Hit It First". It's a blurred out photo of Kim Kardashian. The Nic Nac production features Bobby Brackins and was supposed to premiere Monday but I have it for you today..
This is pretty much a cry for attention because no one is checking for him. He feels responsible for her success. He feels that he hit that booty first then people followed behind him. But long story short, he wants her back. Listen to the hot as mess of a track below. Kanye West won't be pleased.
Do you remember the classic 1976 film "Carrie" and it's sequel "The Rage: Carrie 2" which came out in 1999 and the last remake that seems to have fallen off of the face of the earth? Well, MGM and Screen Gems are taking a stab at it to put their twist on the ever popular film.
The name of it is simply "Carrie" and it will hit theaters everywhere October 8, 2013. Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Carrie White and the film was directed by Kimberly Pierce and produced by Kevin Misher. Check out the official trailer below and a few of the movie posters.
The lovely Brandy has been quite the busy bee. She currently staring in The Game on BET and is celebrating the success of her performance in the Tyler Perry film "Temptation". Now, she has landed on the cover of Pynk magazine and grabbed a full photo shoot with them.
Along with that she gave some insight on a number things regarding the sales and promotion of her latest effort "Two Eleven", the state of R&B music, Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, reality television and much more. Check out the interview as well as a few more pics and the cover below.
|"Harpo...who's this woman?"|
Well now, it looks as if dipping inside of Teairra Mari isn't enough for Ray J. The singer is planning on releasing a diss track about non other than his ex girlfriend Kim Kardashian. He still feels responsible for her success.
Above is the official artwork for the single which is called "I Hit It First". The song was produced by Nic Nac, features Bobby Bracikns and will premiere exclusively on TMZ this coming Monday morning. The following day, it will be made available to purchase on iTunes.
Clearly, he wants to let the world know, what we already know. We've seen the damn sex tape. The photo used in the cover is simply a pixelated picture of Kim wearing a bikini on the beach a few months back.
