R&B singer The Weeknd has become the second artist to score four No. 1 singles from an album on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs chart. He achieved the feat with the single “In The Night”, as the song skipped from 3 to 1 on the chart dated Feb. 13. The song is the fourth single from the album “Beauty Behind The Madness” to reach No. 1 on the chart. The other singles that held the top spot are “The Hills”, which ruled for five weeks beginning on Sep. 19, “Can’t Feel My Face”, which also logged a five week run at the top. The leader was “Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)”, which was also featured on the “Fifty Shades Of Grey” soundtrack, four months before “Beauty Behind The Madness” was released. After celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of their album “The Infamous” with an album and tour, rap duo Mobb Deep announced that they will embark on a 38-date tour to celebrate the release of their 1996 album “Hell On Earth”. The first date will be Mar. 5 and the duo will welcome Smif-Wesson and the Dogg Pound on select dates. The trek across the country will include three shows at SXSW in Austin TX in March as well as five additional shows, one in Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago and two in New York, with the Scratch Academy, which will include VIP packages offering demonstrations in beat making, and the art of DJing and MCing from Mobb Deep’s Havoc and Prodigy as well as long time touring DJ and producer Ski Beatz. The tour will conclude on April 23 in Cambridge Mass. Mobb Deep is also planning to release an album of previously unreleased tracks from sessions for “Hell On Earth”, which hit stores on Nov. 19, 1996 and featured Nas, Method Man, Raekwon and frequent collaborator Big Noyd, among others. Although the tour is set to celebrate “Hell On Earth”, the two New York shows with the Scratch Academy will featuring the duo performing “The Infamous” in its entirety at the Blue Note with a live band, which is set to be recorded live for release later this year. Rapper Chance The Rapper joined rapper/producer Pharrell Williams on his Beats 1 radio show OTHERtone to discuss the impact that becoming a father has had on him as well as his songwriting. During the interview, which will air on Sunday, Chance told Williams that he’s much more understanding of love. He didn’t know love until he had his daughter. Didn’t know it’s bounds. He even showed how being with his daughter directly contributed to music by singing a few bars she inspired. Sad news from the R&B world. The Associated Press confirmed that Maurice White, founding member of Earth, Wind & Fire, passed away on Wednesday in his Los Angeles home. He was 74. White battled Parkinson’s Disease, which had plagued him since he was diagnosed in the 1990s and prevented him from touring in 1994. Despite not being able to tour, White worked through his health issues, remaining involved in decisions regarding the group. White founded Earth, Wind & Fire along with his brothers Fred and Verdine White in the 1960s. The legendary group went on to receive 20 Grammy nominations, winning six as a group, with White winning individually for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist in 1978. Among their many achievements, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Earth, Wind & Fire has sold over 100 million records. The group will be honored at this year’s Grammy Awards on Feb. 15.
