Joyner Lucas dropped a music video for his single "Your Heart", featuring rapper J. Cole, on Friday.

In the music video, which Joyner Lucas directed, the cheating rapper stands idly by while his vindictive ex-girlfriend breaks up all the expensive things he bought her.

The video opens with the ex-girlfriend cutting up his sneaker collection and pouring bleach on his clothes. Then she moves to the living room where she pours wine on his luxurious sofa, knifes the cushions, smashes his dining room table, and swings a bat at his computer monitor.

Through the destruction, Joyner raps:

    "I broke your heart, huh?"
    You knew I was a f--k nigga from the start, huh?
    You should've listened when they said I was a dog, huh?
    You should've listened to your head when you had thoughts, huh?"

In another scene, Joyner and J. Cole watch as the vengeful ex romps in the sack with another man.

J. Cole scolds Joyner:

    "You run your b-tch through the mud, you deserve that
    So you can feel it for yourself where it hurt at
    What goes around comes around, I know you heard that
    While you was creepin', tell me, did it not occur that
    There's niggas slidin' in the DMs every AM, every PM
    Used to be like automatic, she would curve that."

Among the songs the group performed were "The Score", "Fu-Gee-La", and their signature cover of "Killing Me Softly."

Wyclef closed the show with Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry", with Lauryn - the ex-partner of Marley's son Rohan Marley - backing him on harmony.

The mom-of-two said she was "lucky" to be able to retire at a young age.

"How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer. Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage... One last time... Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell..."

Her last sentence left some fans confused. Teyana reportedly underwent a double mastectomy after discovering lumps in her breasts in Miami earlier this year.

Due to her family history of cancer she decided not to take any chances.

Drake's new album Certified Lover Boy topped Kanye West's DONDA in the battle for streaming supremacy.

Drake dropped CLB three days after Universal Music released DONDA without Kanye's permission.

Word has it that Kanye delayed DONDA's release date because he feared being outshined by Drake's new offering.

The "Hotline Bling" rapper recently traded disses with Kanye as they both prepared to drop their new releases.

The Canadian superstar pummeled Kanye in lyrics on his track "7am on Bridle Path."

    "I could give a f--k about who designing your sneakers and tees
    Have somebody put you on a Gildan, you play with my seed
    Trust me, there's some sh-t you really gotta come see to believe
    That's why your people not believers, they all leavin' ya
    That's why you buyin' into the hype that the press feedin' ya

    You know the fourth level of jealousy is called media
    Isn't that an ironic revelation?
    Give that address to your driver, make it your destination
    Instead of just a post out of desperation."

Certified Lover Boy is currently number one on the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums Chart. CLB crushed DONDA's listening figures, according to Alpha Data, the analytics provider behind the Rolling Stone charts.

In just three days, Certified Lover Boy received 430 million on-demand audio streams in the U.S. Meanwhile, DONDA pulled in just under 423 million listens in its first eight days of streaming.

Certified Lover Boy isn't Drake's biggest album to date. 2018's Scorpion, featuring hit single "Sandra's Rose," racked up more than 725 million streams in its first week of release.

As promised, Drake delivered his new album, Certified Lover Boy, without much fanfare or bizarre stunts.

The 34-year-old rapper dropped his first full length release since Scorpion in 2018 - on Friday - almost a year late due to the pandemic.

Standout collabs on the album include rappers Jay Z and mumble rapper Travis Scott.

CLB also includes features with Giveon, Lil Durk, Kid Cudi, Future, Yebba, Young Thug, Lil Baby and 21 Savage.

On "Fair Trade," Drake and Travis seek loyalty from women in their lives and they don't mind losing friends to achieve loyalty.

    "I don't know who love me, but I know that it ain't everybody
    I can never love her, she a busy body
    Baby, if you want me, can't be turnin' up with everybody, nah

    Can't be f*ckin' on just anybody, yeah
    I got feelings for you, that's the thing about it, yeah
    You know that it's somethin' when I sing about it, yeah."

In a post on his Instagram Stories, the rapper described his sixth album as, "A combination of toxic masculinity and acceptance of truth which is inevitably heartbreaking." He also dedicated the album to late Instagram models Nadia Ntuli and Mercedes Morr who both died this year.

Ahead of the release of the record, Drake's mom Sandi Graham sent him sweet and encouraging notes.

Her message on Tuesday, Aug, 31, reads:

"To: Lover Boy Three days more we're counting down, for us to hear the best. Everyone's excited, cause you're nothing like the rest. Three more days my pookaroo I couldn't be more proud of you! Loving mom."
