In today's new music, we've got a cosmic track from the eclectic diva Dawn Richard, meanwhile Nicki Minaj's ex-Safaree Samuels has a new diss track where he claims to have ghostwritten a few tracks on The Pinkprint! Listen to them both inside....
While the VMAs and the BET Awards might sleep on Dawn Richard and her talent, we're here for it! This week, she's dropped another sensuous tune from her album Blackheart, name "Roses." The track was produced by London-based beat master Cronus as it is sure to take the listener on a cosmic trip.
The song is basically an ode to releasing sexual tension as Dawn croons, “All that I want from you, is to get rid of the blues / Even if it’s one night with you.”
Check out "Roses" below:
By the way, Dawn is set to drop the final installment of her trilogy, Redemptionheart, later this summer. In the meantime, Blackheart, and 2013's Goldenheart are available now.
In other new releases...
We're sure you've been keeping up with the Meek Mill vs. Drake beef, but there's another horse in the race too. While Meek is busy calling out Drake for "ghostwritten" verses via social media, Safaree Samuels has been leveling the same charges against Nicki Minaj.
Although Nicki never claimed Safaree while they were together (they dated for over ten years) we learned a lot about their relationship once they borke up. Now, on his "Lifeline" track, Safaree is spilling the tea, and he "suggests" that he's ghostwritten a few bars on Nicki's classic Pinkprint series. Say what now? He said,
“This ni**a bent outta shape with a gorilla face/My bars on The Pinkprint no one will ever match / My dick-print lil ni**a, you could never match.”
Oh ok then.....but when we checked the CD linear notes, Nicki only gave Safaree an A&R credit. But's he saying otherwise.....
Plus he's got a few jabs for Meek too. He disses his record sales ("You dream about Drake numbers in your nightmares”), and even tries to fat shame him (“You need to eat a pear”). Whoa!
Now, we do not expect Nicki Minaj to let the "ghostwriting" jab go unchecked. She prides herself on being a lyricist, so we know she's going to DESTROY Safaree. And we can't wait....
In today’s round up of new music videos, we have clips from Jaden Smith, Tyga and The Weeknd. Check ‘em out inside….
In between shooting scenes for the upcoming Netflix series “The Get Down,” Jaden Smith found time to shoot visuals for a new track titled "Scarface."
Directed by Moisés Arias in Matera, Italy, the 17-year-old “cool kid” serves up dark and mysterious visuals (shot inside a dimly lit cave) with a slew of cryptic messages embedded in the lyrics. The visuals are almost creepy and his rap style sort of reminds us of Drake a bit, but it stays true to Jaden’s artistic style.
Private society, but you try to see/Handle it privately/Why did you lie to me? Why did you, Bruce Lee/John F. Kennedy, who?
And perhaps, his most chilling and dramatic lyric on the track include:
“The government will not be killing me, no/The government will not be killing…”
Right as he's about to say it again...POW! The video ends with a gunshot Jaden disappears and his voice stops. Check it:
In a lighter video...
Riding high off the premiere of his MTV 2 reality series “Kingin’ With Tyga" on Friday, Tyga dropped some new visuals yesterday for a track titled “Master Suite.”
T-Raww and his homies show what it’s like to live the rockstar lifestyle as they party it up with half-dressed chics, throw wads of money all over the place and toast it up to the good life with bottles of Ace of Spades. Must be nice.
“Master Suite” is expected to appear on a new mixtape Tyga’s prepping to release titled, Fuk What They Talkin Bout. Peep his new visuals above.
And in another video....
The Weeknd has brand new visuals for his track “Can’t Feel My Face” (which currently sits at No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100). And it’s FIRE…literally.
The R&B crooner released the video treatment via the new Apple Music Connect platform, joining artists like Drake to release their new material directly to fans. The single is expected to appear on The Weeknd’s upcoming highly anticipated sophomore album Behind The Madness (August 28th).
In the Grant Singer-directed clip, The Weeknd is singing his heart out while busting some signature Michael Jackson moves before an "unentertained" audience. Someone then throws a lighter at the Canadian singer and he burts into flames. Never missing a beat, The Weeknd busts some lively moves where he’s joined on stage by the crowd. Check it out above.
Amber Rose and her adorable baby boy Sebastian enjoyed some mommy-and-me time yesterday. Peep the precious videos and get the deets on Amber’s upcoming “Slutwalk” in L.A. inside…
When she isn’t feuding with someone on social media or twerking for the ‘gram, Amber Rose is spending quality time with her cute 2-year-old son Sebastian Thomaz, whom she shares with her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa.
Yesterday, the bootylicious actress and her baby boy hit the beach for some fun in the sun together to bond and enjoy each other’s company. Amber captioned the picture above, “Fun in the sun with my Pumpkin Pie.” Too cute.
Following their beach pic, the “How to Be A Bad B*tch” author posted up a series of videos of Baby Bash exploring. He found a praying mantis that he couldn’t resist from touching. Check it:
The Sister Code actress also posted up a clip of Baby Bash giving the definition of the word “conversate.” We’re not exactly sure why she deleted the post, but we assume it had to do with people saying “conversate” isn’t an actual word. Her caption read, “Some ppl will say Conversate is not an actual Word but we use it in American English so often as a back-formation from 'Conversation' so why not teach him the definition? So when he hears 'Conversate' he'll know exactly what it means”
Regardless how you feel about the word, Baby Bash has our ovaries on fire with this adorable clip:
After Amber clapped back at Instagram trolls while defending her upcoming “Slutwalk,” new deets have emerged about her new project.
The 31-year-old star is hosting a gender awareness walk called the “Amber Rose Slutwalk” in downtown L.A. on Saturday, October 3rd.
Amber’s upcoming “Slutwalk” was inspired by the original 2011 Slutwalk in Toronto. Women gathered to protest as they raised awareness to gender equality after a police officer told a crowd of female college students that if they wanted to avoid sexual assault, they shouldn't dress like sluts.
Now, Amber is taking a stand and wants all of her fans to join her. Will you be attending Amber’s Slutwalk this fall?
