Rapper Drake pulled a not one, but two fast ones this morning. Taking to his Twitter timeline, The MC released the singles “One Dance”, featuring Wizkid and Kyla and “Pop Style”. “Pop Style” received considerably more attention due to the fact that it’s a collaboration with Kanye West and Jay Z. The Throne hasn’t released anything in quite some time and certainly nothing characterized as their group name since 2011’s “Watch The Throne”. Jay Z hasn’t been featured on a track in well over a year. Drake’s next studio effort, “Views From The 6”, is reportedly scheduled for release sometime this month, although there’s been no word on a specific release date or whether the songs mentioned will appear on the project. A song called “Faithful”, featuring the late Pimp C, surfaced in an unofficial capacity a few days ago. While there’s still no sign of her new album being released, singer Beyoncé Knowles is certainly keeping busy. Ivy Park, her new clothing line, will hit stores on April 14 and in celebration, she conducted an in-depth interview with Elle magazine. Bey made certain to note that the brand is about self love and women caring about their bodies and what they put in them. She added that women have to take care of their mental health by taking time for themselves. Beyoncé’s 10 page spread in Elle magazine will hit newsstands on April 19. Rapper Riff Raff is toasting to  his accomplishments after signing a $4 million joint venture with Stampede Management and distributor BMG to create his new label, Neon Nation Corporation, an ode to  his neon nation fan army. He’s also released his new hard hitting single “Carlos Slim”, named after a billionaire business mogul in Mexico. The rapper will release his forthcoming album “Peach Panther” on Neon Nation Corporation in June. Not many artist are still putting hits on the charts 30 years after their initial success, but Johnny Gill, who first appeared on the charts in the 1980’s, is one exception. “This One’s For You And Me”, featuring New Edition, is currently No. 1 on the Adult R&B Chart and one of his most successful solo singles since the 1990’s. Gill told Rolling Stone magazine that he played the track for the members of New Edition, which he joined in 1988. The other group members convinced Gill to let them do background vocals and it turned out to be a wise decision. The track features a forceful rhythm along with smooth background harmonies. Gill says he’ll continue to do what he can to get R&B to a level of respect it deserves. The genre certainly needs an artist like Gill.
