What it do, folks! We’ve got a lot to go over this week, but we would be remiss if we didn’t first acknowledge the great loss that the music industry — and the world — felt with the passing of our queen, Aretha Franklin. This one definitely hurt folks, but thankfully we have over five decades of timeless music to remember her by. We also had one of the most explosive and juiciest music news weeks of the year to distract our sorrow-filled hearts. For instance, our fave Robert Glasper had time during a radio interview to put Lauryn Hill all the way on front street during a radio interview that had everyone talking. Then there’s all the drama surrounding Nicki Minaj amid the release of her new album Queen, particular the Twitter spat between her and ex Safaree that had everybody grabbing the popcorn. Equally as juicy was the drama that went down between tourmates Teyana Taylor and Jeremih — resulting in their joint tour becoming a solo showcase for Teyana. Oop. All that, plus news on what Clive Davis has in store for an Aretha tribute concert, the Danity Kane reunion no one was suspecting and why Black Twitter is singing the praises of Tevin Campbell — and there’s plenty more where all of that came from. What you want, baby, we’ve got it. All we’re asking is that you read on.
