Grammy award-winning artist Miguel celebrated Halloween by releasing new music from his upcoming EP "Funeral". The entrancing song is currently available at all digital service providers via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.

"Send my regards to the mother and father/ 'Cause somebody's daughter I just f---ing slayed," he sings over a thumping drum track. "Blood on the carpet, it came from my heart/ Once I start I can't stop it/ And now we all pray."

Describing the new direction of the upcoming EP, Miguel states: "I'm releasing more music all the way into the new year but "Funeral" is the perfect song to get it started. I've been exploring darker tones and themes for some time, this song whets the imagination for what's to come."

The Funeral EP will continue to build with each new song until it's fully released this winter, says Sony.

Written and produced by Miguel, Deion Gill, Alekaei Savchenko and Arutiun Tamamian, "Funeral" marks the first official release from Miguel since his 2017 critically acclaimed album War & Leisure, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and #9 on the Billboard 200 chart.

War & Leisure became Miguel's third #1 debut on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and garnered RIAA double Platinum certification for the hit single "Sky Walker," and Gold for the album.

Rap icon Lil Kim went from 0-100 on R&B singer and reality star K. Michelle yesterday. Before we get to the roasting I should mention that K. Michelle's current album, Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? (Atlantic Records), is on pace to top 100,000 in record sales next week. That puts her in very rare company as only 2 other urban artists -- and no other female R&B singer -- sold more than 100K records in all of 2014!

Furthermore, I listened to K. Michelle's album yesterday and it's actually pretty good. So put aside your personal opinion of her and go support our urban artists by copping the CD!

Now on to the roasting!

Kandi and Riley Burruss

7th grader Riley Burruss covers Tiffany Evans' original song "I'll Be There". Riley is the daughter of RHOA star Kandi Burruss and industry veteran Russell "Block" Spencer of Block Entertainment. Riley has a strong voice for a kid so young. It's hard to believe she's only 12-years-old. She sounds a little nervous performing in front of a crowd, but her raw talent is unmistakeable.

Watch the video after the break.
