Drake's domination atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart continues, but with a different song this week, as new single "Nice for What" debuts at No. 1, stopping the command of his own "God's Plan" after 11 weeks on top.
On Monday (April 16), the 6 God went on Instagram to reveal a June 2018 release date for his next album. The project’s title, by all indications, appears to be Scorpion. Drake — who is a Scorpio — first hinted at the title with a scorpion pendant then all but confirmed it by wearing a jacket featuring “Scorpion” across the back.
Technically, Drake hasn’t released an album since 2016’s Views. Last year, he dropped More Life, which was billed as a playlist.
Tristan Thompson didn’t hit the court at all during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ first playoff home game on Wednesday, April 18. The NBA star, instead, watched his team take home a victory against the Indiana Pacers from the bench.
Thompson, 27, hasn’t played as much since news broke that he had been cheating on Khloé Kardashian during her pregnancy. After allegations — and video of him appearing to kiss a woman surfaced — he got booed during an April 11 game. Additionally, he only played two minutes in a game earlier this week.
Logic is busy as hell pumping out content these days. In addition to dropping his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape in March and releasing a music video for Marshmello collab “Everybody” on Tuesday, the Maryland MC is already working on the next slew of projects. Logic has written a comedy screenplay entering production this year, and is hard at work on two novels.
J. Cole shook things up this week when he announced he had a new album on the way. As promised, the Dreamville founder has now delivered KOD, a 12-track follow-up to 2016’s 4 Your Eyez Only.
The project features two guest spots from the mysterious Kill Edward, who many believe is Cole’s alter ego.
KOD — the North Carolina-bred rapper’s fifth studio album — carries three different meanings: Kids On Drugs, King Overdose, and Kill Our Demons.
The cover art features the words “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction” and drawings of several children sipping lean, snorting cocaine and smoking weed. In terms of guest spots, the mysterious “Kill Edward” is the sole listed feature.
The project will mark the Dreamville founder’s fifth studio album and follow-up to 2016’s 4 Your Eyes Only.
Cole previewed the album during surprise shows in New York City on Monday (April 16) and London on Tuesday (April 17). No phones, cameras or bags were allowed inside.
This isn’t the first time Cole has dropped an album on short notice. In 2014, he released 2014 Forest Hill Drive with little to no promo and without any lead singles, and the album still went double platinum (with no features).
After breaking a nearly year-long hiatus from Twitter, Kanye West is wasting no time letting the world know he’s also getting back into things on the music-making front.
Yeezus has announced he’s dropping not one but two new albums, including a collaborative album/new group venture with his longtime protégé, Kid Cudi.
Earlier this week, Charlamagne Tha God was spotted in Calabasas with Kanye for an impromptu listening session and now Ye is coming through with certified information. According to TMZ, while hanging with ‘Ye in Calabasas, California to interview the rapper, Charlamagne was able to preview new music. Kanye confirmed the news himself, telling a TMZ reporter Charlamagne “heard some shit” as they got into a car.
“[My] album is 7 songs,” Kanye tweeted in reference to his upcoming eighth studio album. He confirmed the release date will be June 1.
Kanye West’s Twitter spree of album announcements on Thursday (April 19) wasn’t limited to his own work. Yeezy also revealed Pusha T’s long-awaited King Push album is scheduled to drop on May 25.
