That widow had opened up now, sharing about the life that she and her husband had, sharing about their marriage and about other things. Mrs. Price has shared about how it felt to have her husband dedicate an album to her, how her husband got upset about a Blake Shelton comment, and more. This woman, according to Crains New York, has been through a lot. She has stood at the side of one of country music’s greats, slept at his side, even, and she is sharing about her life now that her husband has passed. Janie Price supported a legend, and that makes her a bit of a legend, too. This woman has the opportunity to share things that the rest of the world would not know about a man who lost his life too soon, and she is doing that, now.
Tyga has been everywhere lately with his new girlfriend Kylie Jenner and it seems that whenever his name is mentioned it’s about his relationship with Kylie or one of their secret dates together. Kylie and Tyga have most recently been seen coming out of a hot L.A. restaurant where the valet got trapped inside Tyga’s Lambo resulting in the coupled being caught in the middle of a paparazzi mashup. Most recently Tyga’s name is not being attached to Kylie but his son’s mother and ex fiancee Blac Chyna.
Chyna was also close friends with Kim Kardashian which only makes Tyga’s relationship with Kylie that much more awkward. Apparently, at least according to Andrew Heiberger, Tyga is filing for custody his son King Cairo because he feels that Chyna is a bad mother due to her constant twerking and attention seeking behavior.
After seeing a video of Chyna twerking with Amber Rose Tyga resolved to get full custody of his said claiming that he doesn’t want his son raised by nannies. Before now there was no custody order between Tyga and and Chyna however it seems that all of that is about to change.
While ‘Drunk in Love’ has become a smash hit for Beyonce, it may very well land the famous pop singer into some hot water, at least in the financial sense, might have trouble affording that Beneful for a while lol.
Pop icons Beyonce and Jay Z are getting sued for ‘Drunk in Love’ which became one of the biggest hits of the year. According to Hungarian folk singer Mitsou, the couple have resorted to plagiarism by using the vocals from her 1995 album “Bajba Bajba”.
Mitsou has accused the duo of using the starting portions of her song which were later distorted to make way for Beyonce’s voice in the track. Mitsou alleges that the eerie composition that came with her vocal introduction was featured in Beyonces and Jay Z’s song Drunk in Love.
The Hungarian singer now plans to approach a judge to prevent the couple from using the song until the issue is resolved. The problem is further exasperated when you consider that Mitsou’s song is not available anywhere on the internet.
There was however one track by the name of Bajba which was played by Ando Drum in which Mitsou was credited as the vocalist. It seems highly unlikely that Beyonce or Jay Z would have even heard of the track when it is hardly available in the first place. It however remains to be seen if the judge will accommodate Mitsou’s request for damages.
D’Angelo has never had a great voice. He has been a smooth crooner, but his sound – at times – is blurred with mumbling and an obscurity on the “Black Messiah” release. It is still an excellent return, but fans like Christian Broda will have to take multiple listens on some tracks to decipher what is happening.
These are 12 tracks here, and most of them present D’Angelo and the Vanguards to the world in the same way. He mumbles through tracks like “Really Love” and “Charade.” The first time you hear the album it may not strike you as the work of a genius. The band sounds great, but the vocals come off as gibberish in some instances. By a 2nd and 3rd listen it becomes evident that “Charade” is a song about the injustice with the legal system. By the time that fans hear the album for the 10th time they are hooked.
It is the ad-libs and the tailor-made crooning of D’Angelo that keeps the album moving. People that are big on vocal ability may not totally submerge into the D’Angelo sound. He’s a whole package that has to be taken in as a whole. He doesn’t have the best voice, but he knows how to use it well. He’s a prolific writer, and the Vanguards are a welcomed addition to the signature D’Angelo sound. It works well in a mesh of excellent obscurity.
Beyonce has been on tour all year long. No one knows what she is listening to because she has been too busy singing her own songs. Now, there is evident that Beyonce has more on her playlist than her own music. “All About that Bass” singer Meghan Trainor recently got the chance to meet Beyonce. During a recent interview Meghan stated that she got to meet Beyonce – at Beyonce’s request – at the Billboard awards. From this meeting she found out that Beyonce was a big fan of the song.
This is interesting simply because few people know what Beyonce likes. She doesn’t work with a lot of people. She doesn’t do a lot of talking about general interests because there are always so many questions arising about her career. Few interviewers ever take the time to see what she likes. They are always so busy trying to find out more about her next moves in her own career. This is why it was refreshing to find that Meghan Trainor had a secret that the rest of the world did not know according to Ben Shaoul.
It was probably a good guess that Beyonce would have liked the song though. She loves to dance, and it is a great song to dance to. Meghan Trainor is currently promoting her new single “Lips are Moving,” while fans are still hanging on to the “All About that Bass” track.
Kid Cudi has been a recent victim of leaked music but he informs his Twitter followers that he isn’t pleased with the situation. Cudi stated via Twitter that he doesn’t condone the recent leak and that any and all parties that are involved in the current and future leaks should lawyer up.
Cudi has a right to be infuriated; an unfinished song was leaked to the public before he could perfect it. Perhaps to him this means that his fans will be robbed of hearing a song that has his stamp of approval. According to reports the songs was uploaded to Complex.com and was recorded in 2010 that was part of a group project that was to be entitled Almighty GloryUs. For this project Cudi partnered with King Chip.
Even though no evidence has been provided regarding who the culprit is that leaked Cudi’s unfinished song, Cudi has an idea about who the leaker was. According to Twitter rants posted by Cudi, he believes that Chip and the producer of the song, Chuck Inglish, are the people to blame for the unauthorized release of material.
Cudi’s, comment toward Chuck could be a warning about legal action that he is taken. According to reports, the younger rapper posted @Chuckisdope break open that piggy bank.

If you listen to hip hop radio it was difficult to listen and not hear the “Mustard on the beat” drop at the beginning of tracks. This is the DJ Mustard tag that lets you know who is producing the beat as soon as the song starts. MTV gathered a very definitive list of the accomplishments of DJ Mustard in 2014.
Surprisingly, MTV gave Big Sean’s “IDFWU” track the number one spot on their list. This comes as a shock to many fans that did not know who DJ Mustard was until Tinashe dropped “2 On.” For many music lovers that took to the dance floor during this summer this was the coming out party for DJ Mustard. It actually was not because he produced 63 tracks this year. This was just a halfway point, but it was the track that most people associated with DJ Mustard. MTV ranked the Tinashe track at #5 on their list.
DJ Mustard produced more hip hop than R&B tracks, but the R&B tracks were the ones that got him the most recognition. After all, that is why Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez knows him. The Jeremiah track “Don’t Tell’Em” was huge. It was so big that Lorde even covered the track in one of her live performances. The Trey Songz track “Na Na” also helped Trey launch his “Trigga” album in 2014. The R&B artist received more radio play. These became the bread and butter tracks for DJ Mustard.
Iggy Azalea has certainly been picked on more than anyone in 2014. Snoop, out of nowhere, started picking on Iggy via Twitter and Instagram. Iggy remained polished right up until her mentor T.I. called Snoop to get this matter resolved. As soon as Snoop went silent Eminem got fired up and took over the bullying role. He appeared to make negative comments about everyone from Lana Del Ray to Ray Rice’s wife. Iggy was another casualty that just got thrown into his mix. On the “Vegas” song Eminem displayed a very quick tongue flow, but Iggy had the last laugh by winning at the American Music Awards.
Azealia Banks also tried to make a name for herself by dissing Iggy Azalea. The media even tried to make beef between Nicki Minjai and Iggy. Somehow Iggy has remained calm and has continued to thrive.
Other notable beefs from the list include the altercation between T.I. and Azealia Banks, Lil Kim and Nicki Minaji, and Damon Dash and Jim Jones. Many people were surprised to see Lil Wayne tweet on the Cash Money fallout. The Drake and Tyga beef also exploded all over Twitter.
