Maroon 5 and Cardi B’s collaboration, “Girls Like You” is still topping the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the fourth week.

The latest entry for the record gives Bardi another milestone, as she passes Iggy Azalea as the most total weeks atop the tally among female rappers.

Ahead of the mentioned four-week reign, the Bronx rapper led for a week in July with “I Like It,” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and for three weeks in October 2017 with her debut hit, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).”

In other Cardi B related news, she recently announced that she’s gearing up to release a new single soon but admits that “mama is nervous.” Considering that all the songs on her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, except for “Money Bag” are certified platinum or gold, Bardi gang will definitely show her some love.

After getting a look into the worlds of up and coming Hip-Hop stars Jay IDK and Bodega Bamz for the ongoing “Alter The Icons” activation by Reebok, rising female emcee Saweetie is the latest from the campaign to show us her unconventional rise in the rap game.



Taking us back to her hometown of Hayward, CA, Saweetie reflects back on the times that shaped her into becoming the talented artist that she’s grown into today, which include being raised as a biracial Filipino/Black woman and getting a college education that resulted in graduating with a 3.6 GPA to boot. Here, the USC grad also shows off the “Altered” Classic Leather silhouette, which, along with the “Altered” Workout Plus, makes up the newest additions to the Reebok family.

Get a look into the “ICY GRL” rapper’s journey with her Reebok “Alter The Icons” campaign video above, and cop the kicks for $90 USD right now by heading to the Reebok online store. See more of Saweetie below:

The five nominees for Australia’s industry voted annual Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards have been announced for “Best Urban Release.” Familiar hip-hop faces in Hilltop Hoods, Esoterik of Bliss N Eso and 360 all received nominations, as did R&B/Soul singer Mojo Juju. Somewhat surprisingly, independent Sydney rapper Kerser was not overlooked this year and finally received a much-deserved nomination after many years of being unfairly ignored.

Australia’s undisputable independent king of hip-hop in Campbelltown-bred rapper Kerser has finally been recognized by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and nominated for Best Urban Release for his seventh solo studio album “Engraved In The Game” that dropped last November. Despite his previous six albums all charting, selling well and providing a self-made platform to tour the country independently all made off his own back, an ARIA nomination had alluded him until now somehow. Kerser has proven to be one of the most influential music artists of any genre in Australia over the last decade, coming from local rap battles to selling out his own major tours like no one before him has and inspiring a new generation to rap.

With a change in requirements and name of what can be nominated this year, we see the ARIA award for this category changing from “Best Urban Album” as it has been since 2010 to “Best Urban Release” as it previously was from 2004 – 2009. This change in rules allows two releases to be in the running for consideration this year that would not have otherwise been possible. Those include the 8/9-track “My Astral Plane” E.P. by Esoterik (of Bliss N Eso) and Hilltop Hoods’ excellent single release featuring Adrian Eagle “Clark Griswold”.

The five nominees for this year’s Best Urban Release award are;

– 360’s “Vintage Modern” album on Forthwrite / EMI Australia (Album)

A comeback album of sorts, 360’s 17-track album featuring Pez, Seth Sentry, I.E., Travy P and Hein Cooper was released late last October. It is his fourth solo studio album since his debut album “What You See Is What You Get” was released in March 2008 on Soulmate Records. It was not until late-2010 that his career really started to significantly develop commercially, with the release of the single “Just Got Started” featuring Pez going Gold as well as charting at #59. A number of Platinum-selling singles followed, as well as two ARIA-nominated albums in “Falling & Flying” (2012) and “Utopia” (2014). 360 was relatively quiet on the music front since late-2014 until he came back with a bang in mid-2017. A solid and widely well-received album, 360 is a strong contender to potentially take out the ARIA award this year along with Kerser.

– Hilltop Hoods ”Clark Griswold” feat. Adrian Eagle (Single)

A single-track release from the kings of hip-hop from Australasia in the Hilltop Hoods was enough to earn them a nomination this year. This is their sixth nomination (having won with each of the previous five ARIA nominations in this category) and their first non-album nomination since taking out Best Urban Release in 2006 for their “The Hard Road” Album. They followed it up with wins with “The Hard Road: Restrung” (2007), “State of the Art” (2009), “Drinking from the Sun” (2012) and “Walking Under Stars” (2014) with all of the original releases going #1 and 2x Platinum, with the exception of The Hard Road which has earned Platinum itself so far.

Despite being an excellent song with a notable feature chorus from the talented Adrian Eagle, it does seem hard to objectively compare singles to albums in this newly reconstructed ARIA category.

– Esoterik “My Astral Plane” (E.P.).

The eight-track plus opening interlude EP on Flight Deck / Mushroom Group is Esoterik’s of multiple award-winning, 2x Diamond selling group “Bliss N Eso” debut solo release. It also features James Crooks, ASTA, Spazzy D, imbi the girl and Ev Jones. Released back in May, the EP spawned the two single “Bless Up” and “Be Like You” featuring ASTA, with the latter attracting an official KLP Remix.

– Mojo Juju “Native Tongue” on ABC Music / Universal (Album).

The excellent 16-track album released in late August is her first release since 2015’s 12-track “Seeing Red/Feeling Blue” album. “Native Tongue” debuted at #76 on the ARIA Chart upon release in its first week . The project features the talents of Lay the Mystic, Joshua Tavares and the excellent Pasefika Victoria Choir on the lead single “Native Tongue”.

The lack of a stand-alone category in the ARIA awards for “Best Soul/R&B Album” means that Mojo Juju is up against four hip-hop artists for Best Urban Release this year. In years to come it is likely that the Best Urban Release category will finally be split into two separate categories in Best Hip Hop Release and Best Soul/R&B Release. The lack of a category for Best Funk Release, Best Folk Release, Best World Release further makes it difficult for artists in these genres to also break through and win an ARIA award.

– Kerser “Engraved In The Game” on the independent ABK Records (Album).

Kerser’s 15-track “Engraved In The Game” album is his seventh solo studio album self-released in seven years and features his ABK Records label mates RATES and Jay UF, long-time collaborator Fortay (of At Large Productions) as well as talented singer Alicia Renee. The album was produced by Allrounda.

The past year has shown Kerser remains consistently strong and also spawned arguably the biggest American – Australian hip-hop single collaboration ever with “Total Concentration” featuring Future, Young Buck of G-Unit and Kerser all dropping verses over a Ghosts In The Room beat. Officially Australia’s most viewed rapper on YouTube at nearly 200 million, next year promises to be even bigger than this year with his eighth album set to drop in February, a national tour set for March/April and further potential for Kerser to develop in international markets in New Zealand, Europe, America and the UK all on the horizon. Kerser and 360 with strong album releases appear to be the two clear standout favorites to battle for this year’s award and it appears we may see a new 10th ARIA award winner for this category.

Only once has a single song won the ARIA award for Best Urban Release, in Melbourne R&B singer Daniel Merriweather’s “She’s Got Me” second non-album single off his debut Promotional EP “Merriweather” back in 2005. An EP has never been nominated previously and a single has not been nominated since Bliss N Eso’s 2006 “Up Jump The Boogie” produced by LA’s DJ Hoppa that was the lead single to their second studio album “Day Of The Dog” on Illusive Sounds. Despite dozens of nominations from New South Wales and Sydney artists over the last 14 years, only Bliss N Eso (2008) has managed to take out the top prize with their third album “Flying Colours” a decade ago.

Last year’s ARIA winners were A.B. Original (Briggs and Trials of Funkoars) with their excellent debut album “Reclaim Australia” on Golden Era Records / Bad Apples Music, fending off tough competition from Tkay Maidza, Remi, Thundamentals, and Illy. The other eight different winners for Best Urban Release since its inception in 2004 include Drapht (x2), Seth Sentry, Hilltop Hoods (5 wins from five nominations), Illy, M-Phazes, Bliss N Eso, Daniel Merriweather, and Koolism. Before there was an exclusive Best Urban Release or Best Urban Album Categories, Melbourne hip-hop legends 1200 Techniques in 2002 won the ARIA award for “Best Independent Release” with the lead single “Karma” from their debut studio album “Choose One”. 1200 Techniques were hugely influential in being the first hip-hop act in Australia to win an ARIA and subsequently broke down many barriers for hip-hop in Australia.

Solange’s new album is on the way. The follow-up to 2016’s, A Seat at the Table, is coming this fall, she reveals to The New York Times in a recent interview. In spite of the fact that a release date hasn’t been set, it will “likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment,” according to the Times.

Solange recorded the LP in areas including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon. “There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she tells the Times. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”

This year, Solange was named the Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year. She additionally uncovered that she’s been taking a shot at new music with Steve Lacy. The artist uncovered another performance art piece called Metatronia in April. She previously put on an outdoor performance of her melody “Scales” at Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas; that venture provoked a difference in context for the new LP, she tells the Times: “I realize how much wider, figuratively and literally, my work could be if I took myself away as subject.”

Cardi B has been living off the success of her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, which was released in early April. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper recently announced that every song, except for “Money Bag” was certified platinum or gold.

She recently delivered a fire verse on DJ Snake’s Taki Taki featuring Ozuna and Selena Gomez, and another one for Pardison Fontaine’s “Backin It Up.” Now it looks like Bardi is gearing up to release another single of her own.

The Bronx native teased her forthcoming single on Twitter, and also admitted that she’s nervous. This could be her new mommy chills playing with her nerves, because with the support of #BardiGang, Cardi B can’t do no wrong.

Ella Mai has officially arrived.

The 10 Summers prodigy has certainly taken advantage of the momentum she gained from her debut single, “Boo’d Up,” making a strong case for a Song of The Year Grammy nomination. The single recently broke the record for most weeks at No. 1 for any song by a woman on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart when it topped the chart for 16 weeks. She followed up “Boo’d Up with “Trip” and now a full-length project.

Ella Mai’s debut album is loaded with 16 songs and intentionally placed A-list features. In addition, the album is exclusively produced by her mentor and go to the producer, DJ Mustard. The Interscope artist links with R&B legends, John Legend and Chris Brown for two of the album’s three features. “Focus” artist, H.E.R. caps off the album’s list of guest appearances.

With the early success of her singles, one can say that Ella Mai’s has already shaken the curse of a one-hit wonder and her album will further continue that narrative. Be sure to listen to Ella Mai’s debut album on Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal.

Kodak Black, who seems to be making all times of changes in his life for the better connects with Travis Scott and Offset of The Migos to drop his second single since being released from Broward County Jail this summer.

It seems to be a hot night for the Migos, as this track dropped immediately following Quavo’s debut solo album Quavo Huncho. Travis Scott is also featured on the record, who is coming off his SNL performance and enjoying the success of his signee and newcomer to the game “SheckWes”.

Kodak seems to be making all the right moves by pulling together two of the biggest names in hip-hop to cover the  D.A. Doman-produced track.

Strong album debuts on the Australian Urban Album Chart by both Lil Wayne and Logic were not enough to knock Eminem’s Kamikaze off the top spot, which he has occupied since debuting their five weeks ago. Tha Carter V debuted at #2, just ahead of Logic’s YSIV at #3 and represents a re-entry for both of them into the Australian charts. Wayne also has six songs from Tha Carter V currently in the Single Charts, a feat only matched by Eminem and Drake.

Eminem continues to reign supreme, with a further four albums on this Top 40 Album chart demonstrating his continued longevity down under. His 2002 classic The Eminem Show is the highest selling Hip-Hop album ever in Australia, being one of the only rap albums to achieve Diamond certification locally as well. The Eminem Show is the highest selling hip-hop album worldwide with over 27 million units sold, ahead of his The Marshall Mathers LP album at 21+ million copies sold since 2000. Eminem also has the two top-selling hip-hop albums of all-time in America with these two landmark releases as well.

On the domestic front, Thundamentals remain in the top 30 after their new fifth studio album “I Love Songs” debuted impressively at #5 last week and features the talents of Eves Karydas and the rising superstar that is Adrian Eagle. With ten years deep in the game now, Thundamentals continue to hit their stride and show no signs of slowing up with an ongoing packed touring schedule that has helped them develop such a wide fan base.

Australia’s hip-hop kings Hilltop Hoods also remain in the top 30 with solid sales of their latest Platinum-certified album release Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung continuing despite being on the album charts for over the last two and a half years – a testament to the legacy they have built for themselves over the years.

Amy Winehouse is the latest artist to get the hologram treatment. Base Hologram has collaborated with the estate of the Grammy-winning artist for a worldwide tour in 2019.

Fans will get the opportunity to see the late singer once again or out of the blue as a multi-dimensional image as the best in class generation reproduces Winehouse on the stage. Highlighting carefully restored game plans of her works of art, the hologram will be supported by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.

“This is a dream for us,” said Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, in a release. “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”

The tour was announced by Mitch Winehouse and Base Hologram CEO of creations Marty Tudor at the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s yearly occasion in London.

“Amy was an extraordinary individual who had an unbelievable passion for both her music and her fans,” said Tudor in a release. “This tour will tap into that devotion and remind people of her amazing voice and all of her contributions to the world of music. In addition, we are proud to be a part of contributing to the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Amy’s legacy of commitment to others in need.”

The Amy Winehouse Foundation attempts to keep the impacts of drug and liquor abuse on the youth. The group also plans to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.

The Winehouse family and Base Hologram are concluding plans, to be reported later on, to raise awareness and fundraising for The Amy Winehouse Foundation on the tour.

“Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word. She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the perfect person to headline this type of project,” said Brian Becker, founder & CEO of Base Entertainment and Base Hologram, in a release.

Winehouse is the first British artist to win five Grammy awards and at the time of her death in July of 2011, she was tied with Beyoncé for the most Grammy wins in a single night by a female artist.

The Winehouse hologram concert will join Base Hologram’s current touring shows “In Dreams: Roy Orbison – The Hologram Concert” and “Callas in Concert,” in honor of opera legend Maria Callas.

Stream the new collab, created by DJ Luian and Mambo Kingz, below via Apple Music.

Bad Bunny and Drizzy additionally dropped off the collab’s official video, helmed by Fernando Lugo.

The track notably showcases Champagne Papi flexing his Spanish singing skills, which we initially learned was in progress thanks to comments from DJ Nelson at the Red Bull Musical Festival in New York in May. “I just heard a track from Bad Bunny and Drake and Drake is singing in Spanish,” Nelson said at the time. “It’s happening.”

Drake also sang in Spanish on Romeo Santos’ single, “Odio,” taken from Santos’ Formula Vol. 2.

“We spoke about everything,” Bad Bunny told Billboard of his recording sessions with the 6 God back in May. “I don’t speak English well, but after a few drinks you can speak any language. We spoke about music, basketball, everything.”

Migos unexpectedly landed a win for the culture at the 2018 American Music Awards when they took home the trophy for Favorite Duo or Group Pop/Rock.

Quavo and Offset accepted the award with Takeoff noticeably missing. The award came as a complete surprise for the Quality Control artists. “We did not know we was winning this at all,” Quavo told the crowd. “We thank God, Mama, I love you. QC the label. We ain’t even got no speech together, but it’s all good. Hey, Takeoff, yes sir, we brought it home, you thought wrong. I want to say thank you to all my fans, all our fans, for making us No. 1, for making us the No. 1 group in the world.”

The win was one for the culture because we all know that Hip Hop is the No. 1 genre in the world. Additionally, Rock was heavily influenced by Black people.

The Breakfast Club’s host, Charlamagne Tha God, took to Twitter to argue the Migos are better than The Beatles.

Charlamagne elaborated on his stance on The Breakfast Club, though he technically switched his verbiage from “better” to “bigger.” “Does John Lennon have a solo album?” asks Tha God, prompting Angela Yee to respond with “…yes.” “Quavo is bigger than John Lennon,” says Tha God, doubling down. “You don’t need a Yoko Ono when you got Saweetie.”

Its been thirteen years since her last album, but it seems that Missy Elliott is preparing to end her (relative) musical drought. The rap legend affirmed that she’s chipping away at another LP, which will stamp her first since 2005’s, The Cookbook.

Reacting to a Recording Academy tweet setting that she’d affirmed another collection, Missy said, “You can expect nothing but records and people going back to dancing nonstop!All Facts! Thank you @RecordingAcademy love yall❤.”

Although Missy didn’t officially announce a forthcoming album, she has been teasing new sounds on social media. This, and previous tweets about the matter demonstrates uplifting news for diehard Missy fans.

A great deal has changed since Missy Misdemeanor dropped off her last solo group of work, which incorporates features from the likes of Mike Jones, M.I.A, Ciara, Slick Rick, Fatman Scoop and more. In that time, trap, Auto-Tune-bound songs and the lo-fi style of South Florida’s rap scene have turned into the most predominant sounds in the Hip Hop genre. The state of the music business has changed a considerable measure, as well. Missy’s last LP dropped three years before Spotify even launched.

Those previously mentioned changes to the Hip Hop scene aren’t lost on Missy, who reviewed the manner in which change made her reluctant to drop another task.

In a tweet dated Oct. 1, Missy expressed, “For so long I was hesitant to put out music in fear no 1 would get it because people said music has changed & my sound been so different but NOW IM LIKE hey‍♀ bump it make music that feels good to me let me Get y’all asses dancing again.”

After five days, on Oct. 6, Missy tweeted a message that indicated that she’s planning to release new music. She wrote, “[In] 2019Let me get yall asses DANCING AGAIN”Cool Off.”

“Cool Off” appears to be the name of a new song she’s working on. She provides a sample of the hyperactive new tune in the same tweet.

Ella Mai performed “Trip,” the tune that inspired the infectious Jacquees remix, on the Tonight Show Wednesday night.

The hit single is taken from Mai’s forthcoming self-titled debut album, out Friday by means of Interscope and DJ Mustard’s 10 Summers label. Catch Mai’s most recent live performance of the “Boo’d Up” follow-up in the video below:

“I don’t think she has a ceiling,” Mustard, who signed Mai to 10 Summers in 2016, told Billboard back in July. “I refer to her as ‘The GOAT,’ because people have yet to see what she can do and how talented she is. I think with me and her working closely together like we do and with her being signed to me, that’s like my prodigy.” Mustard also touted Mai’s focus, adding that he “can’t wait for the world to hear her album” to see what they’ve been cooking up over the past two years.

The 15-track collection features John Legend, H.E.R., and Chris Brown. Most of the creation, not surprisingly, was taken care of by Mustard himself with extra help from Lido, H*Money, Kosine, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg

As declared back in August, Mai is among the few artists offering help on Bruno Mars’ up and coming 24K Magic world visit. Boyz II Men, Ciara, and Charlie Wilson have likewise been tapped for the overall tour.
