Cardi B returned to Instagram today, seeming like a better version of herself.

The “Bodak Yellow” announced that the visuals for the second single, “Be Careful,” of her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is on its way.

Love yaaaaaa

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

She also teased a clip of the video, and it looks like it’s going to be good. It takes place inside of a Church. Bardi and her play husband are presumably getting ready to say their vows until the background music gives a suspenseful aura and then the beat kicks off.

“Be Careful” video coming tomorrow on my youtube page. Love ya 😘

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

The Bronx rapper only has a total of 6 posts now. In one post she took the time out to give us an update on the stats of all her singles and features. She even took a trip down memory lane to reflect on how far she has come.

Kensington Palace recently revealed in a tweet that Bishop Michael Curry has been chosen to preach at the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry of Wales and American actress Meghan Markle happening on Saturday.

 

 

Bishop Curry was born in Chicago and later became a Bishop in North Carolina. Curry is the first Black Bishop to preside over the Episcopal Church.

The 65-year-old Bishop has reportedly been very active in the community in regards to social issues and marriage equality.

“The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness,” Curry said in a statement. “And so we celebrate and pray for them today.”

The Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle takes place Saturday (May 19). The ceremony will be live streamed on YouTube.

Three years after going viral with her re-creation of Beyonce’s “7/11,” 16-year-old singer Kyla Imani is back. And this time, it’s with New York City rapper Jay Critch.

A different sound and new wave for Kyla, “Sitting Up In My Room” showcases her growth not only as a musician, but as a young woman. With lyrics like “Normally, I don’t even know your name/Normally, I don’t even play these games” and “Normally, I wouldn’t let you in my head,” Kyla isn’t shying away from the common and easily-relatable narrative of being ironically intrigued by someone.

“Sitting Up In My Room” is an effortless blend of Pop and R&B, with a hard-hitting display of Hip-Hop. Showcasing her soothingly raspy tone and ear for harmonious hymns, the track is an ode to the ever-lasting battle of not being able to control what’s on your mind. 

A product of 2000’s hybrid-blend of music, it is clear in her sound that her inspirations include the likes of Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Ariana Grande, Ne-Yo, Demi Lavato and Rihanna, among others. With this new track, Kyla has made her versatility clear, and she’s gearing up for her first tour this summer. There’s no guessing where the singer will go from here.

It’s been one month since the song’s release, and Kyla has social media and the digital world buzzing, being added to five of Spotify’s new music playlists. In addition to good attention online, she is officially gearing up for her first tour this summer.

Listen to “Sitting Up In My Room” below.

The Bronx is showing out on Jennifer Lopez’s new track called, “Dinero” featuring DJ Khaled and Cardi B.

The highly-anticipated track is finally here after being accidentally leaked by Alex Rodriguez on his Instagram story.

Production was handled by Tommy Brown, Yei Gonzalez, and Mohombi Moupondo. So it’s unclear what role Khaled played. But it’s refreshing to get another one of Bardi’s fire verses. 

They gon’ do what I say so / Cardi B and J. Lo / Talk behind my back, but never up in my face, though / I just want my money, chips, guac, and queso / Y’all can kiss my ass, dame un beso, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper spits on the Latin-infused beat.

Kim Kardashian is in the hot seat for promoting “appetite suppressant” lollipops in an Instagram ad. Fans, including actress Jameela Jamil, dragged the beauty mogul for promoting eating disorders.

The mother of 3 is an avid ambassador for Flat Tummy Co.’s weight-loss products. People believed the post was deleted by the reality star, but IG said it was “mistakenly removed” and “apologized to Kim for the inconvenience caused.”

Flat Tummy’s appetite suppressant lollipops were released Tuesday and said to help consumers suppress their hunger and keep “cravings in-check.” The product also contains a warning stating the “statements on the Site have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, and the products offered on the Site are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”

Kevin Macdonald debuted the ‘Whitney’ documentary at the Cannes Film Festival, another narrative that reveals crisp insight into Whitney Houston’s rise and fall story.

Meeting Houston’s nearest family and companions, Macdonald made two new shocking revelations that show up in the film: One, that she experienced childhood abuse, and, two, that the abuser was a lady, Houston’s cousin Dee-Dee Warwick, the late sister of soul symbol Dionne. Dee-Dee Warwick passed in 2008.

This is the first time this news has surfaced. It has been six years now since Houston’s death and the Queen continues to make headlines. During the height of her career, she was trending for her unmatched, soulful vocals then as she began to spiral out of control, she became known as a drug user.

Examples of other superstars who have lost battles to drug addiction are Jazz legend Billie Holliday, whose fight with heroin correspondingly undermined an once encouraging profession, Janis Joplin and up to the terrible passing of Britain’s Amy Winehouse in 2011, the unoriginal story of the reckless female has been a natural figure of speech in pop culture. Macdonald’s narrative, which Miramax and Roadside Attractions discharge in the U.S. on July 6, looks to annoy that sexist translation in more courses than one.

According to Nicki Minaj, she will be hitting the big screen once again and this time, with comedian, Tina Fey. The movie is titled ‘Get Ya Life Ugly,’ and the plot? That is still in question. The rapstress took to Instagram to reveal the coming of the movie in a racy post.

The Instagram post was an overall announcement and promotion for her appearance as the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live season finale with cast member Tina Fey. Under a coincidental impression sprinkled with a hue of playful shade, Minaj revealed that right after the episode airs, she and Fey are taking action and will begin shooting for their movie ‘Get Ya Life Ugly.’

“@SNL SEASON FINALE W|THE ONE & ONLY TINA FKN FEY. GOTTA BE FKN KIDDING ME. OMG. SHE & I are shooting our movie after Saturday’s show airs. Yikesssssssssssss. Get ya whole fkn LIFE HOES!!!! In fact, that’s the name of the movie. #GetYaWholeFknLifeHoes 🤫🙃 sike. It’s called #GetYaLifeUgly,” penned Minaj’s caption.

The coming of ‘Get Ya Life Ugly,’ adds on to one of the many explanations behind the Queens rapper’s recent hiatus, as reports have surfaced its purpose being tied with the megastar’s grind time. Just last week on the red carpet of the Met Gala, Minaj announced the coming of her highly anticipated fourth studio album slated Queen, which is set to be released next month on June 25. Of course, her buzzing back to back singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz” will be featured on Queen which already have burgeoned two stupefy visuals.

What else does Minaj have underneath…her sleeves?

Queen Latifah can add another notch to her long list of accomplishments, this time getting an honorary doctorate degree from Rutgers University.

The multimedia maven was presented with the certification during their commencement ceremony. The school is located near her home state of New Jersey, so the recognition holds even more significance. “What a university this is,” the Newark native said in her address to the graduates. She continued by adding, “I’m a Jersey girl born and bred. So when it comes to homecomings, I’ll take the words of Garden State’s own Jon Bon Jovi who wrote: ‘Who said you can’t come home? That’s the only place where they call me one of their own.'” She gave even more props to Jersey by stating, “This place has shaped me. Whether it’s been your home for four years or 40 years, or something in between, you carry it with you. Just as I have. Long before Living Single and Set It Off and Chicago, it’s lessons I learned right here at home that made me the person I am.” She currently is the only female rapper who has received a degree.

If you’re one of those people who think Beyonce is overrated then you may want to close this window. But then again, if you are one of those people, why’d you click the link in the first place? Either way, I’m going to report an unbelievable story about the Queen Bey.

Bey is out here donating jewelry to museums to feature in exhibitions about nobility-worthy jewelry. No really.

The Guardian reports that the Lemonade singer has gifted a Papillon ring, which was a gift from the hubby, JAY-Z, to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. It will be displayed alongside other jewels worn by Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great and Empress Joséphine (Napoleon’s first wife) in what is described as “one of the most spectacular jewelry collections in the world.”

The Papillon ring was designed by London-based jeweler Glenn Spiro, aka G, four years ago. The butterfly’s wings are made of titanium and are encrusted with green tsavorites, which are reportedly more rare than emeralds, and surrounded by diamonds.

The V&A’s jewelry curator, Clare Phillips, expressed his enthusiasm for Bey’s generous donation.

Beyoncé is a figure whose personal style the V&A is proud to represent and a gift from whose personal collection we are honored to receive,” Phillips said. “The Papillon ring she has gifted is an exquisite example of contemporary jewelry design by one of Britain’s master jewelers.

Beyoncé’s ring will be on display in the museum’s William and Judith Bollinger jewelry gallery, which also boasts more than 3,000 jewels ranging from the Ancient Greek period to the present day.

Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s announced their engagement, there has been nothing but scandal attached to their relationship. The royal wedding is scheduled on May 19th, and of course some controversy had to be stirred up before it.

The Daily Mail reports that candid images of Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, preparing for the wedding were all staged and sold for $135,000.

Meghan’s father was getting harassed by paparazzi and a warning was issued by Prince William and the Kensington Palace, however, her dad saw dollar signs.

The footage on The Daily Mail suggests he hired celebrity photographer Jeff Rayner to help him stage the photos and then sold them around the world.

The arrangement of photographs included shots of Markle looking at news stories about the wedding at an Internet bistro, perusing a British magazine, and getting fitted for a suit. Witnesses say Markle and Rayner arranged the entire thing together. Going to a tailor that happened to be shut, they asked an adjacent gathering merchandise store representative to act like a worker at a certain point.  “I just went along with it,” he said.” I was telling him the measurements, but he didn’t write them down or anything. It was really strange.”

Thomas Markle is a former television lighting director who chose to live his life outside of the spotlight. But he was reportedly struggling with the attention his daughter’s upcoming marriage is bringing. One of his friends explained, “Don’t underestimate how stressful and, at times, distressing the attention on him has been. Remember, this is a man who has intentionally tried to live on his own away from anyone he knows.”

The feud between Cardi B and Azealia Banks has reignited and things are getting ugly.

During The Breakfast Club interview, the very outspoken Banks threw major shade to Bardi calling her an “illiterate, untalented rat” to a “caricature of a black woman.”

The “Ice Princess” rapper goes on to explain that two years ago when Beyonce dropped Lemonade, the narrative around Black women was an intelligent one and the “Bodak Yellow” rapper shifted that.

I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.

Cardi responded to Azealia’s insults via Instagram and then deleted her account.

The youngest Kardashian sister shared a short clip of her bundle of joy, celebrating her turning 1 month old (already).

“Happy 1-month-old mama,” says Kardashian as True looks at the camera under a filter of a flower and hearts. “I love you pretty girl.” The video already went viral, and drew over 5 million views in the two hours.

This is Khloe’s first child with trifling Cleveland Cavaliers player, Tristan Thompson. She gave birth only days after they were tangled up in Tristan’s cheating scandal. However, E! reports that sources claim the couple is standing tall.

“Khloé has fallen in love with him all over again, watching him be a dad to True, but knows she needs to really take a step back and make the right decision.” said the source

Tristan also came out of hiatus to gush over his baby girl, in comparison to having a baby boy. But with all reason tho, because True is a beauty.

Ryan Destiny is Black Hollywood’s next rising star. The actress can sing, dance, act and to top it all of, she’s beautiful AF.

Miss2Bees caught up with the STAR actress at ESSENCE’s 2018 Best in Black Beauty and asked her how she maintains all her Melanin Magic. She revealed that drinking water is a major key, as well as giving make up a break and sticking to skin care regimes.

I  was delighted to hear that she has been recording music for the past year, with intentions to release her untitled debut project some time this year.

Unlike her character Alex Crane on the show, she doesn’t produce. But she does have fun during the creative process of making music and writing music with her friends and mentors. Check out the interview in its entirety below:

(This is interview was edited and condensed for clarity.)

How did Quavo link up on the show Star? How did that come about?
Uhh I think it was literally as simple as Lee like calling and asking like hey we want quavo on the show. Is he down? And he’s super super cool and it just made sense. You know the show is in Atlanta, he’s in Atlanta, it’s just perfect. Naomi Campbell, who plays my mom, she returns. It’s a really exciting episode.

And what does she want?
She just wants to tell me about my father. The news about my dad and her and their relationship.

Good news? Are they splitting?
Uhh yeah it definitely sounds like some kind of divorce so we will see where that leads because she definitely doesn’t take news too well and of course she is battling with being an alcoholic. So it’s just all of that drama within that and how Alex tries to figure it out.

Earlier in the panel you mentioned that you don’t really like to wear makeup like that? How is that possible when you’re always in the spotlight?
Well I mean whenever I don’t wear makeup I just have to make sure my skin is right. So literally drinking water has been essential for me because whenever I don’t that’s when I start breaking out and that’s when I want to wear makeup. So whenever my skin is literally like pretty clear then I’m totally fine with pictures, anything like that because I feel comfortable in my skin.

You mentioned that you are working on a solo project and it’s coming soon. Do you have like a release date for it?
I do not have a release date yet but definitely this year. People will know more within the next month or two.

But so far, where are you in that? Like have you started recording songs?
Yeah I’ve been recording for literally the past year. This is a process obviously and narrowing down songs. Finding the sounds is something that every artist has to do and It’s a journey to that. So I’m constantly recording now. Now that we have stopped filming star for the meantime, I have more time to do that so yeah it’s cool

Do you write and produce your own songs just like Alex does on the show?
Uhh she literally does the whole entire thing. I have friends that literally have been mentors and have literally helped. I love the creative process of writing and producing and just making music. I don’t produce that’s something that I haven’t stepped into yet. Maybe one day I don’t know

Every year, we take the time to recognize, reward and honor the women who help make the world go round. From the communities to bail out Black mamas to the go-to Sunday brunch, family, pseudo families, friends and more are out on the town celebrating the moms that have helped guide and mold them while they try to find their way in the world – especially celebrities.

Whether stars across the country are doing it big, or keeping things simple and classy at the crib, there’s one thing none of them can do the day without: the obligatory IG mama-I-love-you post.

When influential Black women in the music business get together, everyone leaves feeling empowered.

On Tuesday (May 8), the Dear Black Girl podcast brought together some of the of best and brightest Black women in the music industry. Their purpose: to empower the sisterhood of Black women who are taking over media. From the queen Oprah Winfrey to the next generation, such as Ava Duvernay, Jada Pinkett Smith, Shonda Rhimes, and Lupita Nyong’0, there is definitely a new wave of melanin-inspired success stories for young Black girls to follow.

The Dear Black Girl podcast brought millennials of color together to give insight into the success stories of women on the pulse of Hip-Hop and urban culture.

On this year’s panel:

  • CHANEL AUGUSTE: International Marketing Manager, Epic Records
  • BRITTANY LEWIS: Interim Curator of Spotify’s Rap Caviar (brand marketing and the brand’s live concert series)
  • SAVANNAH BRITT: Owner of GP & Britt Public Relations (who’s worked with Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, Ryan Leslie, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, Dave East, Kevin Gates)
  • CRYSTAL CAINES: Producer for ASAP Ferg, Nick Jonas, MIA, Bone Thugs N Harmony etc.

Hosted by Unique, the We Major: Black Millennial Women and Music Panel highlights the experience of millennial Black women who have forged their own paths within various fields of the music industry (radio, record label, media, streaming services, etc.). The discussion is set to explore the many paths and challenges guest panelists have faced and triumphed over during their journey along the way, giving attendees an exclusive look into their lives and careers. Among the many topics that were brought up that evening was a highlight of what it’s like navigating the playing field as a woman. The process was broken down into four sections: the concept of taking your own destiny into your hands, the bigger concept of building a name and legacy for your family to follow, recognizing social media isn’t real — it’s just a tool to build your brand — and finally surrounding yourself and being mentored by those who can open doors for you and prepare you for the work once you get there.

Here’s one of the jewels dropped by Chanel Auguste, based on her personal experience and opinion:

“My advice to any young women trying to get into the music industry is to seek out internships in their field of interests, reach out to people for informational interviews and also find mentors whether male or female that can provide them guidance in their career and journey. In regards to younger women, you are seeking to have their voices heard in meetings or in decision making experience, it’s also important to establish mentor like figures in the workspace that can provide guidance and support. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals, while also building new relationships with people you may not see yourself ‘clicking’ with. These experiences can help to broaden your viewpoints and build your confidence as you grow.”

 

 

At the end of the panel, even DJ Enuff gave some insight into the power of the young Black leaders on stage. From the audience, he spoke on the positive effect the panel has on social media. When they are present and showing their journey, it provides the delicate balance that impressionable Black girls need to see. It’s not always the Instagram models turning up; it’s women with a plan and a mission succeeding and being great. As their torch burns brighter, it becomes a guiding light for future ebony CEOs and those who aspire to the corporate side of the music business.

 

Savannah Britt summed it up simply as this:

 

“I’m unafraid to be myself. That’s what pushes me forward. I’m not consumed by social media and many of the falsehoods it projects. My Instagram feed is just a glimpse of my life. My life can’t be summed up by an instant post. My vision far supersedes my social media.”

 

The women on this panel then in-turn took the opportunity to really answer audience answer questions. There was never a moment where it felt as part of a lackluster or typical Q&A session. The women moved out into the crowd spending precious minutes with those aspiring to be them or be where they are in life. From providing insight and instilling strength, to just being all-around approachable, there was never a moment when anyone was just putting on.

 

The atmosphere at the close of the event seemed as if the women in attendance left with nuggets of wisdom needed to make their own mark on the industry some day.

She never expected “Dip Dip freestyle,” a diss track she made as a joke, to go viral and inspire her to write a whole mixtape. Now, As the rise of female emcees have gained more spotlight in today’s music scene, Bali Baby continues to stay on her grind as being someone who not only remains fluid in her wardrobe choices, but in her music which ranges from hard beats to trippy melodies. After several successful mixtapes and filming her YouTube series, “Ganging with Gang”, Bali is currently on her PlayGirl world wide tour and promoting the release of her latest most experimental project, “Baylor Swift.”

The artist has always been known to adopt alter ego’s and derive personas by popular names in the industry. “Baylor Swift” is her eight-track debut album that puts Bali at the top of the scale when it comes to showing how much of an actual rock star she is.  Bali has said this album “Tells the tale of a broken hearted girl who put her all into the mic.” Once you listen to the tracks, “Electrical” and “Tough”, it proves to be just that.

We sat down with the Atlanta-born rapper on Source TV to discuss her views on the #MeToo movement, petty beef, and how to navigate the music industry as a successful independent female artist.
