Crazed fans who enjoy living vicariously through their favourite artists have a reason to celebrate today. The 2012 Forbes list of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians has been announced and it entails shocking placements by some of the biggest stars in Hip-Hop, Pop, Rock and even R&B.
Your grandparents had the 1940s and your parents had the 1970s but for many of us, the golden era of music was in the 1990s! Yes, spanning for ten glorious years, that decade was packed with a wide range of talented artists who generated enough classic hits to last us a lifetime.
Almost all of the music that we’ve heard from Ne-Yo’s upcoming ‘R.E.D.’ album has been lacklustre at best but today a ray of light has pierced the black clouds of Hurricane Sandy. ‘Should Be You’ is a new song that will appear on the record, and it features rappers Fabolous and Diddy.
The pre-taped 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards finally aired this evening and the show was action-packed. Aside from a notorious backstage clash between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, the ceremony featured performances and cyphers by T.I, 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, Eve, 2 Chainz, Busta Rhymes and others.
When Jay-Z rapped about making it in America he certainly wasn’t joking because his business ventures have earned him a slot among the highest-earning Hip-Hop acts on the 2012 Forbes Cash Kings ranking. However, on a lineup featuring Dr. Dre, Kanye West and Diddy, who came out on top?
Why bother reviewing Trey Songz’s music if he clearly doesn’t care about quality? Really, why should we put thought into it when he clearly hasn’t done the same? For example, listen to his new song, ‘Check Me Out’, which features Meek Mill and Diddy.
Despite being released independently, Dawn Richard’s ‘Armor On’ EP performed quite well on iTunes. However, the eclectic artist refuses to get lazy and continued to promote her project on ‘Sway in the Morning’. Naturally, however, music wasn’t the only point of discussion on the show.
Dawn Richard visited ’106 & Park’ earlier this week and her next promotional stop was on Power 105.1′s ‘The Breakfast Club’ this morning. Shockingly, similar to her ‘Bombs’ video, the singer left listeners of the show stunned by talking about a possible Danity Kane reunion.
