Songkick, an app acquired from the Warner Bros. music group last year, inks a deal with Facebook to add concerts and events from their database onto the social media platform that is currently averaging two billion users.

Adding to the Facebook deal, Songkick also unveiled a new deal with French retailer FNAC, described by the company as “the largest ticket seller” in France and Belgium. This new deal will involve a content-sharing agreement and Songkick’s first steps into the concert and event planning market.

“We have tapped into Warner’s global infrastructure and existing fan base to accelerate growth and solidify Songkick as the best concert discovery tool on the market”, said Tony Harlow, president of Warner’s artist and label division WEA. “We know that Songkick users are highly engaged passionate music fans and we strive to provide them more content, access, and rewards for their enthusiasm.”

The collaborations with Facebook and FNAC follow current ones with Vevo and Pandora for Songkick. According to the company, its user fan base grew by 34 percent and its monthly active users grew by 43 percent in the past year. Within that same period, the app has released an interactive platform called Songkick Live.

“Since we’ve joined forces with Tony and his amazing team at WEA, we’ve been in growth mode, striking a series of deals with distributions and ticketing partners aimed at expanding our global presence,” Songkick chief technology officer Mark Mcintyre addressed in a statement. “Our team is growing, and our plans for the years ahead are more ubiquitous than ever. We’re off to a great start and looking forward to this exciting partnership.”

After making waves earlier this week with announcing that he is changing his stage name to SEX, Young Thug continues to stay on the wave with another announcement stating that he will not be making or releasing any new music in 2018.

In an interview with HypeBeast, the Atlanta-bred rapper mainly talked about fashion and what it means to him. “I am fashion,” he said. “I don’t think it could get any deeper. I live and breathe this.” However, he briefly talked about having a deaf brother, the main reason why he will not be making any new music. “I got a deaf brother. So, I want to act deaf for a year… I ain’t going to put out no new music this year,” he said.  

He did reference a possibility of dropping his highly-anticipated, delayed Hi-Tunes album. “2019 I’ll probably put out Hi-Tunes”.

Thug has come off of a fresh 2017, releasing a joint project with Future called Super Slimey, along with an EP titled Young Martha EP and a single called Beautiful Thugger Girls.

Check out the interview below:

The unadulterated joy, anticipation and support of Black Panther leading up to the film has unsurprisingly raked in great results. Black Panther has made Marvel history after securing opening weekend and now receiving the esteemed title of highest grossing first week film of the Marvel Universe.

In just North America alone, Black Panther has made $292 million dollars and the now second place Avengers film came in at $270 million in comparison. Internationally, Black Panther has brought in $228 million, which brings the weekend total to $520 million. Last weekend Black Panther opened with $202 million dollars and it is projected to bring in additional weekend of at least $100 million.

Director, Ryan Cooler, wrote in a letter to fans,

“It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film,” Ryan exclaimed. “To seem people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to out posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theatres – often moved me and m wife to tears.”

Last week was the week of love and our favorite celeb couple celebrated with a new chain. Cardi B and Offset are the couple in name as Cardi was seen gifting Offset an intricate new chain featuring an abandoned house and Offset’s likeness in the “bando” house. It was not confirmed how much was spent on the new piece but now there has recently been confirmation of just how much Cardi B spent on the new piece.

TMZ reported that Cardi be supposedly shelled out a whopping $250,000 for Offset’s gift. Respected jeweler, Elliot Avianne, designed the luxurious new “bando” chain and has made past pieces for Quavo with his Ratatouille and Yoda units, and Takeoff’s solar system chain. While $250,000 may seem expensive to us, it’s small change for a Grammy nominated couple like Cardi and Offset. Since the inception of their relationship, Cardi B and Offset has had to face much scrutiny as every celebrity couple faces but it seems like Cardi B and Offset are stuck like glue.

In a earlier interview with Rolling Stone, Offset described their relationship saying,

“She is real solid, came from where I came from, did what I did. She’s herself, man. I seen her develop from the trenches all the way up, and I like how she did it. I respect her grins as a woman. She came to the game with gangsta shit. I like that. I fuck with her. That’s my baby.”

Brits. Their just like us. (Except for the tea obsession, driving on the wrong side of the road, and the whole metric system thing.) Yet last night, the BRIT Awards, the equivalent of the Grammys, honored major label artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, Alicia Keys, and more.

But more importantly, the awards served as an introduction of some of the hottest new Hip-Hop artists from across the pond, giving us at least five hot new artists to add to our playlists:

Stormzy

Winning Best British Album of the Year for Gang Signs and Prayer, the rapper, who got his start in London’s underground music scene with his combination of complex freestyles over classic grime beats, the album was one of the few in history to ever receive a perfect score from Britain’s NME magazine, is said to deliver “a knockout debut that’s brash and pensive in equal measure.” Proving that he’s more than a rapper, the artist demonstrates his gospel-worthy vocal talents on the album, most notably on “Blinded by Your Grace,” also dabbling with some EDM influences throughout the album.

Dua Lipa

Getting her start covering artists on YouTube, the singer/model made her way onto British pop and dance charts in 2016, making her the UK’s most streamed woman of 2017 on Spotify, and winning British Breakthrough Act of 2018 at the awards for her pop-esque dance beats.

Rag n Bone Man

The heavyset crooner’s appearance, whose appearance might be more reminiscent of a Son’s of Anarchy extra, shows that talent can be deceiving. Rag’n’Bone Man, is an English singer and songwriter, known for his deep, bass-baritone voice and range of musical capabilities. In 2017, he was named British Breakthrough Artist. His single “Broken People” also appeared on the Bright soundtrack, earning him a win in the BRIT Awards British Single category. While also contending with Stormzy in the highly competitive British Album category, he is a proving that he has the star power to become a household name worldwide. 

Sampha

Another strong contender in the Breakthrough Artist category, the singer/songwriter/producer has collaborated with top international talent such as Drake, Kanye West, Solange, Jessie Ware, and more. With a style that oscillates from symphony-level piano player to EDM DJ to lyrical rapper, Sampha is without a doubt a major name to watch for in 2018.

Loyle Carner

The Brits’ answer to Drake, Carner’s melodies, which have been described as “confessional hip-hop,” earned him a nod with a Breakthrough Artist nomination.

Paloma Faith

The fiery artist, known for her known for retro, soul-inspired eccentric style, received a nomination for British Female Artist, filling in the gap left by Amy Winehouse’s untimely death in 2007. 

So make some room in your music collection for some of these artists as well as some of the other talent honored at last night’s awards. Kendrick, Solange, Calvin Harris, and your other faves won’t mind sharing the attention- after all, they’re collaborating with them.

It’s look like Rush Hour 4 is officially a go! Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan will join forces once again for the fourth installment of the movie. Tucker appeared on The Plug Show on ESPN and stated that the movie was moving forward.

“It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it.” – Chris Tucker

We’ve been waiting for confirmation since last year October. Chan had told fans that the script was being worked on however we weren’t sure if the movie was going to happen but now we know that it is. The last time we saw these two together was in 2007 for Rush Hour 3 which grossed over $200 million.

There hasn’t been a confirmed date of when the movie will be released but Carter and Lee, the dynamic duo will be back together again.

Ladies get your silk bonnets and fellas get the durags and scarves ready because Tami Roman and Snoop Dogg are teaming up for a late night comedy show.

If you follow Roman, she’s taken social media by storm with her #BonnetChronicles, as she discusses hot topics that include, but are not limited to news and entertainment. Recently, the Basketball Wives came for Kanye West in her chronicles where she determined his black card had been revoked due to Kim Kardashian’s latest break the Internet moment. Snoop Dogg responded to her video with, “I got my scarf on. When we gon’ have a one on one talk about the sh*t we keep seeing?”

Now the two are getting a chance to make audiences laugh together. Tentatively titled Get Into It….Forizzle, the pair will be rocking their bonnet and scarf respectively as they discuss topics in pop culture, celebrity interviews and performances, as well as sketch comedy.

The show will be produced by Snoop and his wife, Shante Broadus, Jill Ramsey and Tami Roman and co-executive produced by Ernest Dukes and Danika Berry.

With an abundance of new talented rappers vying for limited space at the top of the charts, Lil Yachty, who experienced some growing pains with his first solo album, Teenage Emotions, will need to prove that he has what it takes to navigate his boat through some tough waters.

If the hype is to be believed, Lil Boat 2, the rapper’s sophomore full album, which drops on March 9, is on course to do just that – and provide fans with wave after wave of new hits.

The announcement came yesterday as his entire Instagram feed was deleted except for one photo announcing Lil Boat 2’s release date, which coincidentally comes two years to the day after the release of his first mix tape.

Over the last two years, Lil Yachty has proved his talents as a rapper. After all, he did coin his own genre of music- “bubblegum trap,” a niche that few new rappers have managed to carve out for themselves with such limited experience under their belt.

While album details are still under wraps, Yachty is busy with an overwhelming number of new projects including reported collaborations with Gucci Mane and Migos for a Glacier Boyz project, as well as a collaboration with Takeoff

The few snippets that Yachty has shared with the public show a more refined sound than past albums, as well as original beats with a wider variation of speed and tempo – perhaps just what the rapper needs to solidify himself as a serious contender for major label superstar.

While the album promises to deliver more diverse beats and lyrics without sacrificing his original sound, showing Lil Yachty’s range and perhaps, demonstrating that his talents aren’t just limited to “bubblegum trap” music, it’s still likely that he won’t deviate too far from his original base – still giving fans that ‘pop’ that they crave.

Audiences are still on a high from Black Panther and everything that the Marvel movie stood for. As we are amazed at the whole cast and a job well done, we cannot help to swoon over the ladies of the film. Strong, beautiful black women were depicted in ways we haven’t seen in a long time. Melanin-rich skin and natural hair were portrayed in the movie effortlessly. As Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o wore locs, braids, and a small afro, Danai Gurira will be remembered for how she slayed a bald head, especially in the scene where she used her wig as a weapon!

Ladies, if you’re looking for inspiration and the confidence to rock a bald head, check out five women who have done it with grace and enforced India Arie’s “I Am Not My Hair” movement.

In the wake of the shooting in Florida last week at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the March for Our Lives will take place next month, March 24th. Students are using their political action to take a stand due to this horrific event that left 17 dead, 14 were students.

George and Amal Clooney pledged $500,000 to the anti-gun rally. A few hours later, Oprah Winfrey declared her donation as well. She agreed with the Clooney’s and will match their half a million dollars donation.

She tweeted, “These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.”

Along with Winfrey and the Clooney’s, Kate Capshaw, Steven Spielberg, and Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg have also donated to the rally.

The march next month isn’t the only thing that students have done in response to the Parkland, Florida shooting. Students in Washington, D.C., created Teens for Gun Reform and staged a three-minute lie-in in front of the White House on President’s Day. The teens wanted to send a message to the government and their lack of gun control.

Black patrons from around the world come dressed in their best African gear to support Marvel’s Black Panther.

For most African Americans, finding their place in the world is a complicated thing. Most descendants of Africans who were enslaved during middle passage,  don’t have a clear definition of their cultural past. This is due to the nature of the middle passage.  This torturous process was economic in origins but had an underline purpose of destroying any ties the captured African had to the continent (including language, culture, style, and religion.)

Hollywood does not make this easier.

Films often show Africa in a myriad of ways: some positive and some well totally off. While movies like, Eddie Murphy‘s, Coming to America and Ryan Coogler‘s, Black Panther celebrate African culture on a monumental scale, there are more moments where Hollywood whitewashes the African experience. Chief among these examples is Elizabeth Taylor‘s interpretation of “Cleopatra” in the film about the Egyptian queen. While many industry insiders rave about the dollars spent to create Wakanda, it would seem that more money was placed in the lie.  Disney paid $200 million for production of the Black Panther and to the contrast 20th Century Fox in 1963 invested more to create the false image of Cleopatra’s kingdom. To make this film that many consider an epic, they spent a modest budget of $44 million, which if you factored in inflation leaps would equate to $334 million in 2013.

But who is checking for Cleopatra? Most everyone when thinking about Africa in pop culture, think CTA and BP.

As much as these two films are celebrated, they are worlds that simply do not exist. They are an amalgamation of borrowed cultures to create present lands. Regardless of whether or not they exist, this concept of African kingdoms untarnished by colonial rule means a lot to peoples of color around the world. They represent what might of been if fertile lands like the Congo went untouched by the butcher of Belgium, King Leopold who slaughtered millions of Africans or Egyptian statues were left unblemished by European hands. So when creating the fictional lands of Wakanda or Zamunda, a bit of world building was needed. That means borrowing images and cultures across the African continent to recreate something new, almost if an ideal. This created a boldness reflected on Black Twitter for people of African descent to find their finest cultural duds to show out.

 

 

 

If Zamunda opened our eyes to wealth and prosperity Africans and their descendants could have, then Wakanda showed us the beauty of the many tribes of Africa. Each one styled colorfully and proud at the box office. Costume designer Ruth E. Carter, in collaboration with production designer Hannah Beachler, created visuals of tribes people in brightly patterned wax prints, neon-colored lip plates, and regal, elaborate headdresses, all incorporating aspects highlighting vast African cultures and traditions. These are visuals that exist beyond the white and Western imagination then presented unfiltered on a Disney screen no less. For peoples who often struggle to find positive images of self, Black Panther may have finally successfully build on the stepping stone Eddie Murphy masterfully initiated.

Oh did we mention that Eddie Murphy posted then deleted a tweet about a possible Coming To America 2?

We joyously look forward to all this #MelaninPoppin in 2018 and beyond!

Any comic book aficionado will tell you Heath Ledger (RIP) stepped up to the massive clown shoes laid out by Jack Nicholson. Now the question is “Did Michael B. Jordan take the proverbial baton and stretch the villain role that much further?”

Blerds online (black nerds) are unanimously applauding Jordan’s “Killmonger” interpretation as the best villain in the Marvel Comic Universe. Like Ledger’s Joker figure, he is a polarizing character, that asks us deep questions that we have been ignoring for years. While Ledger’s Joker made us confront the evils in society, Jordan’s Killmonger makes us weigh Wakanda’s place in the African Diaspora. They are bad guys that tho evil in their intent, we understand their motives and in the end find their movies somewhat justifiable.

Spoilers ahead…

We have to admit that Erik Killmonger, was wronged. When King T’Chaka killed his father for allowing Wakanda to be robbed and terrorized to pay for Vibranium to fund his missions against white supremacy, it was messed up. He left that kid without a father in Compton, California…enough said. We can even argue that Killmonger’s father Prince N’Jobu (brother of T’Chaka) was also a Black Panther for using militant actions to fight white supremacy in America, arguing that Wakanda is responsible for not giving their African brethren the means to fight their oppressors. Yet N’ Jadaka (Erik’s royal Wakandan name) still rose up from the ghetto to graduate from military high school, gains access to MIT, and become a black ops badass.

He had a mission, right the wrongs done to him, “by any means necessary.” We understand his angst and inner turmoil when he turned to Angela Bassett’s queen mother character and shouted, “Hey Auntie.” As we watched Heath Ledger slice through Bruce Wayne’s Gotham like a precision knife, we got what he was doing, proving that anyone could have, “one bad day.” That humans as a society were flawed. Let’s not forget it took “Deebo” from the Friday Movies to have the strength of character even as prison inmate not to blow up the other boat.

Black Twitter is confirming Jordan’s legendary 3peat status to A list actor. (We all admit that Fantastic Four wasn’t his fault so we are just going to pretend it didn’t happen). But he’s a special kind of Villain, the one that we root for. For any black that has been called a “nigger” we all wonder what it would have been like if we had a vibranium suit and some hi-tech panther claws in our back pockets. For African-Americans, we stand in awe of MLK Jr.’s and Malcolm X’s bravery, to stand in the spotlight, at the forefront of the offensive, no bulletproof vest (sorry 50 Cent) and say, “We shall NOT be moved.” We all shook in our seats when Killmonger uttered,

“Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, cause they knew death was better than bondage.”

Prince N’Jadaka, was cunning, ruthless, totally jacked T’Challa up in ritual combat, not to mention was manically driven yet unstoppable in pursuing his goals. Plus every guy secretly heard girls sigh with joy when when Jordan ripped off his shirt to reveal muscles and ritual kill tattoos. Step for step he was a match for the Black Panther, his dialogue with T’Challa mirrored the scene where Christian Bale’s Batman went head to Ledger as The Joker. The famous interrogation scene, that even when all seemed to be lost for the villain, he could not be broken, his focus blurred, his mind changed. Their banter forever burned into the cinema of the mind. When it comes time for best supporting actor next Oscar season, Michael B. Jordan, better NOT be left off the ballot.

Black Panther’s ticket sales may not be the only magical thing about this blockbuster film.

On a long deleted series of tweets recovered by The Shade Room, it seems the playful banter between the two Black Panther co-stars might have escalated. From a harmless bet on the set of the movie, to antics on a recent MTV show, things may have heated up between the two. Apparently, Michael B. Jordan lost a bet on the set of Black Panther that requires him to drop and give Lupita Nyong’o push ups whenever she requests, especially if he’s wearing bright colored sweaters? Lupita did look amazing in camera so no ones blaming him, but here’s the steamy social media exchange:

 

#LupitaNyongo hit #MichaelBJordan back with a response 😩 (view previous post)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

From the cast Q&A from the New York City premiere to the live stream on Twitter, Lupita relishes on making Marvel’s new leading man Jordan drop and give her 20. She even recorded her 3rd queenly request for Jordan and hit the floor on her cam for Twitter at the Calvin Klein Fashion show.

Lupita quoted 3 more to go, which is like an epic reference to “slapsgiving” from TV’s, How I Met Your Mother, where characters count out how many public slaps are left. If this video is any indicator, the two are all smile and hugged up during the exchange. For a movie that highlights black love, no one will complain if these two become Black Hollywood’s new ‘It” couple.

@michaelbjordan, losing with a smile. On call push-ups!!!

A post shared by Lupita Nyong'o (@lupitanyongo) on

Michael B Jordan is definitely looking at Lupita like she is a snack, which may have started from the skin tight outfits that Nyong’o rocked on the set of Black Panther. No one will dispute that she was the epitome of chocolate toned “bae” in this movie release. Either way fans can’t wait for them to hopefully take it from harmless flirting to first base.

Latina superstar Camila Cabello has come a long way from being in Fifth Harmony. With a number 1 single “Havana” topping the Billboard hot 100 and a new album, Camila, there is no limit to what this young woman can do. However, a recent moment at the 2018 Grammys may have thrown the singer into a tailspin.

During the 2018 Grammy Awards, Cabello was an award presenter and made a speech specifically targeting young DREAMers as a jab to President Trump’s administration for phasing out previous legislation that allowed undocumented immigrants to enter the country as minors to receive a two-year period of action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. In the middle of her speech, Cabello made a statement, standing in solidarity with those DREAMers.

“Tonight in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was built by dreamers for dreamers chasing the American dream”, Cabello said.

The statement did not sit well for Blue Ivy as the six-year-old calmly shushed parents Beyonce and Jay-Z from clapping as a response. This infamous moment became a firestorm on social media with people creating memes, referencing the hand gesture that Blue Ivy used to calm her parents down.

A month later, Cabello did an interview with BBC Radio-1, addressing the faithful moment of Blue Ivy calming Beyonce and Jay-Z down with her hand.

“I had a moment of insecurity… I surprised myself. I was like what does that mean? I’m not going to go into this big wormhole of ‘do you like my speech’, like what do you think?”, Cabello said.

At that moment, Cabello assumed Blue did not like her speech and felt that Blue would like her.

“She would like me… kids like me”, Cabello responded.

According to BBC host Grimmy, he saw the moment completely different.

I think what she was doing was she was over the applause interrupting your speech–I think she was saying to her Mum and Dad, ‘stop, she’s not finished’–just be cool, be cool”, Grimmy said.

Whatever Blue Ivy’s intentions were that night with the hand gesture, it surely had Twitter in a mood for 2018.

Angela Simmons shows us that we can have it all. She truly is a MILF with her son by her side no matter what. She keeps a fit and healthy lifestyle that includes but is not limited to boxing and yoga and has a career that she made on her own even though her father is the great Rev Run.

For Black History Month, Simmons decided to recreate and pay homage to some of the great female musical influences of our time: Janet Jackson, Sade, Beyoncé and Diana Ross. As she did this, she also announced her partnership with Yummy Extensions, a hair brand offering virgin hair of many types and textures. Check out below how she honored these women! Did she nail it?

The success of Black Panther continues to dominate with grossing over $387 million in a four day opening weekend. As more countries gear up to release the premiere, this number can potentially change. With success, controversy always takes place.

A petition has been going around on Change.org urging the studio backing the Black Panther movie, Marvel Studios, to take 25% of the profits made and put towards the black community. According to the petition creator, Chaz Gormley, he questions what would the black community get out of seeing this monumental movie and how Marvel only cares about the almighty dollar.

“As a win, what exactly will the black community gain, aside from another symbolic victory?”, Gormley says in the description of the petition. “however, Marvel Studios hasn’t pulled out all the stops to get everyone else to come to the theatres–because they want the one thing the black community has to offer in abundance, black dollars”. The petition has already garnered 7,985 signatures below of its 10,000 goal and is soon to rise as more signatures contribute to the cause.

As the petition makes its rounds through social media and garners more attention, celebrities voice in support of the cause while others do not. Talking to a TMZ reporter in Los Angeles International Airport, actress Vivica A. Fox shows her support.

“Change.org wants 25% of the proceeds for Black Panther to go back into the community, I think that is an excellent idea”, Fox says.

Blue Comedian Gary Owen (who is white and married Black with Black kids) thinks otherwise.

“It is not the responsibility of the movie companies— I don’t know, just enjoy the movie. It’s not their job to give part of proceeds to different charities. I mean, when will it stop?”, Owen responds.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Chadwick Boseman mostly sided with Owen on the matter.

“Honestly, who cares? At the end of the day, filmmaking is a commercial art.– If you don’t make money when you make movies, then you can’t make movies. That’s what it is”, Boseman said.

At the end of the day, Black Panther is a monumental movie and it should be celebrated, not just because it’s the first Black superhero movie, but with an All-Black cast and gorgeous costumes combined. Marvel Studios has yet to comment on the petition.

Earlier this morning, an Ohio middle-school student shot himself causing schools in the Jackson Local School District to be on lockdown. The seventh-grader was in the bathroom when he shot himself at Jackson Memorial Middle School.

There have not been any updates on the child’s condition, but he was transported to the hospital. Jackson Local School posted on Facebook that he “suffered and apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound”. Because of this incident, four elementary schools were closed. The high school in the neighboring area was being evacuated.

The news of this comes less than a week after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, shot and killed 17 people at a Florida high school.

No further details have been provided on the Ohio student.

All eyes were on them. Flashing lights, tweets and pictures of PDA, only to be tore down by accusations of infidelity and ex-spouses that enter the picture. People all know the television show, Love and Hip Hop, but this is the real Love and Hip-Hop. Check out The Source’s list of memorable breakups in Hip-Hop.

 

Big Sean and Naya Rivera

The rapper and the Glee star were together for a year in 2013, before getting engaged just six months later. Drama brewed under the surface among claims of distance and infidelity. According to a section of Naya Rivera’s memoir, Sorry Not Sorry, she details the moment where the relationship went downhill. “I walk in the house, go downstairs and guess what little girl is sitting cross-legged on the couch listening to music”, Rivera said. “It rhymes with Smariana Schmande”. The mystery girl was future girlfriend Ariana Grande.

 

Faith Evans and Christopher “B.I.G.” Wallace

In 1994, Faith Evans got married to Brooklyn-bred rapper Notorious B.I.G. They stayed together until 1997, when Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting after leaving a party in Los Angeles. During their three-year marriage, rumors of infidelity started to develop between the two parties. Biggie accused Faith of cheating with Tupac, while Faith accused Biggie of sleeping with Lil’ Kim and multiple women.

      

Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj  

Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj were in a two-year relationship from 2015-2017. Everything seemed to be picture-perfect for the couple, sharing loved up pictures on Instagram and even recording a music video together for “All Eyes On You” with Chris Brown. However, social media was telling a different story. Nicki Minaj had posted messages on Instagram, citing the possibility of a breakup. And in 2017, Nicki had wrote a tweet confirming that the relationship was over.

 

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna began a relationship in January 2016. The couple was together for a year and a few months, before splitting indefinitely in July 2017. The relationship was filled with drama on both sides, ranging from domestic violence to infidelity. In July 2017, Kardashian aired out Chyna’s dirty laundry on Twitter, accusing the former stripper of doing drugs, infidelity, and ignoring their daughter. Chyna responded to the tweet with a cryptic tweet of her own, detailing what Kardashian did to her is not the end. 

 

Kylie Jenner and Tyga

After breaking up with his ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna (who later went on to date Rob Kardashian), Tyga started pursuing a romantic relationship with Kylie Jenner in 2014. Public backlash started to circulate around the couple because of the significant age difference (Kylie was 16, Tyga was 25).  But, the couple did not care at the time.  They were together for 2 years, before splitting up for good in 2016, amid Tyga’s infidelity. Soon after, Kylie went on to date Travis Scott for a few months and in February 2017, gave birth to a daughter Stormi. Currently, Tyga is asking for a paternity test to determine if the child is his among claims that he was still sleeping with Kylie around the time Stormi was conceived.

 

Kanye West and Amber Rose

Kanye West and Amber Rose got together in September 2008, following West’s success of his album, 808s and Heartbreak. They stayed together for two years until July 2010. Their relationship was filled of love: from matching each others’ outfits on the red carpet to Amber posing naked for Kanye’s sneaker campaign with Louis Vuitton to drinking Hennessy at the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, sparring the infamous line by Kanye himself: Yo Taylor, I’ll let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time”.

 

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young got together in 2014, following a tweet written by the basketball player saying that he was crushing on the Australian rapper. A year later, Young proposed to the rapper with a 8.15-carat yellow stone, and everything seemed to be heading towards “a happily ever after” story for the couple. But, things turned sour after cheating allegations arose in March 2016, of Nick Young admitting to cheating on Azalea with a 19-year-old girl. In June 2016, Azalea decided to call off the engagement for good, announcing their split on Twitter.
