No longer content with crafting hits for artists such as Monica Brown and Usher, music producer Rico Love is going the route of other music producers-turned-artists. Love’s first attempt at recording a solo album was in 2007. Crooner Usher Raymond, who signed the 31-year-old songwriter to his US Records, encouraged Love to stick to what he knows best: songwriting and producing. But Love didn’t listen.
Today, Love released the new music video for his hit single “He Got Money” featuring Ciara‘s baby daddy, Future on auto-tunes. Watch the video after the break.
Beyonce apparently went slumming for a feature artist to hop on the remix to her single “Blow”.
According to a new posting on the music industry database ASCAP, Beyonce and Rihanna are listed as artists on the new remix. The song writers are also listed but no other information on the song is available.
Rap idol Nicki Minaj once vowed she would change her crazy, pre-Superbass-era ways. She changed her style, even tossing her wigs and weave extensions aside to embrace her own natural flowing locks.
In an interview, she said:
“I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.’”
Nicki’s brief social experiment ended with a loud bang when she released the cover for her new single “Anaconda”.
Rapper Kirko Bangz just dropped his music video for “Rich” featuring troubled singer August Alsina. The two Drake and Chris Brown wannabes must have purchased rapper T-Pain‘s old auto-tunes equipment. I guess copycat artists polluting our airwaves is a thing nowadays. Can anyone be original anymore? Watch the video after the break.
3 days ago, burlesque singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter uploaded a ’50 Shades of Grey’ teaser video clip to her Instagram and Twitter accounts. The video is a 15-second slowed down version of her hit song “Crazy In Love”. According to published reports, the song will be included in the soundtrack to the much-talked-about erotic film. A full version of the song will be released on Beyonce’s personal website on Thursday.
But that’s not all.
Sources say Beyonce is waiting for the film’s soundtrack to be released before filing for divorce from her philandering husband, aging rapper Jay Z, 45.
MTV premiered rapper T.I.‘s latest music video entitled “No Mediocre” featuring rapper Iggy Azalea. The video was shot on location in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, by Director X. “All I want is bad chicas/I don’t want no mediocre,” T.I. raps as a bevy of exotic beauties bump and grind for his approval.

There is no doubt that R&B singer Robin Thicke Loves his estranged wife, singer Paula Patton. But if he hopes to win her back with a new song (after allegedly cheating on her for years), it seems that ship has sailed.
