Just after unveiling the cover art and tracklisting for blackSUMMERS’night, Maxwell debuts the passionate video for “Lake by the Ocean.”

The cinematic clip, directed by Philip Andelman, is thought-provoking, opening in a village that’s in dire need of water. It progresses as the protagonist, a beautiful woman from the village, heads out to see Maxwell perform at a cafĂ©. As she watches his performance and as he sees her in the crowd, passion takes over.

According to Maxwell, the video “depicts a world in need of water and two clandestine lovers who meet with liquid dreams, one being the bare-boned need for clean water, and another, the performer, who wants to be lost in the watery worlds of love and devotion.”
“Lake” is the first single off blackSUMMERS’night, due July 1. Maxwell is also heading out on his 30-date “SUMMERS’ 2016” tour, which will include a stop at ESSENCE Festival. Before all of that, he will perform at the BET Awards, where he’s promised, “it’s gon’ get wet.”

“Sleeping” is the new single off Tasia’s fifth album The Definition Of…, which is slated to drop July 29. It also features “Ugly,” “So Blue,” and “No Time for It.”

Keep them guessing bey!  Nothing that a swig of LEMONADE won't help...Beyonce and Jay Z continued to put on a united front on Tuesday as they enjoyed a date night in New York - in light of her recent album Lemonade's theme of infidelity. 

The 34-year-old singer was beaming ear-to-ear as she spent a night off from her world tour indulging in a leisurely three hour dinner with her husband of eight years.
The power couple headed out shortly after the rapper's latest track dropped online, in which he finally made reference to Beyonce's new album and its shocking accusations.

Beyonce looked as though she did not have a care in the world as she went summery in a floral maxi dress which showed off her cleavage and she wore her lightened locks in a neat bun.
The mother of Blue Ivy added complementary red accessories, including peep-toe heels and some bold berry lipstick - exuding sunny glamour for her night out. 
Jay, 46, kept it casual in a black slogan t-shirt and jeans while covering his head in a baseball cap - looking unfazed by the final delivery of his response to the shock record. 

The couple have so far refused to comment on any relationship issues until the drop of a recently released remix of Fat Joe's track All The Way Up, in which Jay mentions Lemonade as well as his marriage as he raps on the track.

He says: 'You know you made it when the fact/Your marriage made it is worth millions/Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is survival of the littlest.' 


It’s about to be ladies’ night. VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors” is back with a salute to the first ladies of hip-hop.

This year’s ceremony, the first in six years, will air live from New York City on Monday, July 11, at 9 p.m. According to a press release, the show will “pay homage to the female pioneers, trailblazers, and trend-setters who lead a movement and infiltrated the ranks of the male-dominated genre to make their voices heard and still do today.”

The special is being produced by Shakim Compere and Queen Latifah, who will also serve as executive producer along with Mona Scott-Young.

The show, originally launched in 2004, hasn’t announced its honorees yet, but in the past, “Hip Hop Honors” has paid tribute to several acts including LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Salt-N-Pepa, Missy Elliott, MC Lyte, and Tupac Shakur.

“Honors” has been on hiatus since 2010 when 2 Live Crew, Jermaine Dupri, Master P, and Timbaland were among the honorees.

HELLO from the other side for real! British songstress Adele signed a £90 Million ($130 million USD) recording contract with American recording label Sony Records. The recording contract is the largest ever for a British artist.

Adele has been credited with single-handedly reviving album sales after a dismal record sales decade nearly collapsed the music industry.

The deal was brokered by her manager, Jonathan Dickins, just before Christmas, according to British tabloid The Guardian. The paper says Adele was already signed to Sony when she publicly trashed the label for not releasing American signer Ke$ha from her recording contract after Ke$ha accused Dr. Luke of sexually abusing her.

The Guardian — The singer, who was the best-selling artist in the world in 2015, was previously with British independent label XL, who she signed to at the age of 19. However, the deal expired this year and it is understood she was poached by Sony Music, the world’s second-largest record label.
The deal will double Adele’s £85m fortune, which includes more than £35m in sales from her latest album, 25. Released in November, 25 has been credited with single-handedly reviving album sales, having sold more than 19m copies to date worldwide

SHI*** JUST GOT REAL...Tamar Braxton has been FIRED from Daytime Emmy-nominated FOX talk show, ‘The Real.’

A very reliable source confirms.
Tamar Braxton just got fired from ‘The Real.’ She wasn’t reading too well with the audience and sales people didn’t find her to be a good fit with advertisers. Also, production found her too difficult to deal with.

Yikes. Well, this definitely explains Tamar’s Instagram post from earlier. Check it out below:

I love u all but I have been stabbed in the back by someone I stupidly trusted ( not my man or my sisters) I am not about to be tried and tested to snitch (????) and it’s not in good taste to tell you who…… but as #tamartians you are very smart and can figure things out on your own. But know that every one who smiles in your face is NOT your friend and is NOT cheering for you and will LIE and try and tear u down to TRY and dim your light. Thank GOD HE HOLDS MY FUTURE AND MY HAND! (Remember who u are)….I am Tamar Braxton. And if you thought for 1 sec u played me…..In the late great prince and the amazing BeyoncĂ© voice you PLAYED yourself???? to God be the Glory and I will be taking a short break from ALL social media…until then?? yourself and WATCH YOUR BACK ( I put this picture up cause this is the embrace I got from my sister and best friend that she ALWAYS gives when she knows I’ve been had)

Apparently, Loni Love pretends she doesnt knows just as much about Tamar Braxton‘s exit from The Real as the rest of us! Tamar’s former cohost tweeted a cryptic message on the evening of May 21 saying “I have no idea what’s going on.” You and us both, girl. See her message after the jump!
