Last week,  Chris Brown released the new single “Shut Down”, featuring rap collective OHB. But it appears that venture isn’t all Brown has on his to do list. A few days ago, Brown took to Twitter with a list of things he intends to do. First on the agenda is to release an OHB mixtape today. Next, he plans to release a single titled “Whippin” with the Section Boyz and Quavo. Third, he plans to release his own solo single on May 5. Finally, he’ll begin the European leg of his “One Hell Of A Night Tour” on May 20. Later, he plans to deliver his autobiographical documentary “Welcome To My World”. What’s next? World domination of course. If you’ve ever wondered why Prince didn’t appear on the star studded charity single “We Are The World” back in 1985, wonder no more. According to Lionel Richie, one of the curators of the song with Michael Jackson, Prince didn’t want  to participate. Richie told Access Hollywood that he spoke to Prince regarding the matter, but Prince chose to decline appearing. He even chose to skip the American Music Awards when Richie hosted, although he was a big winner. Doing things on his own terms was definitely Prince. Rapper Drake was an open book during his interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. Before his listening party kicked on Apple Music last night, Drake spoke about his admiration for Kanye West and his “phenomenal pool”. He also mentioned that  a collaboration is in the works, but the two have tracks stashed away that may be released. He later discussed listening to Stevie Wonder’s “All I Do” and Alabama Shakes “All Your  Love” during the creation of “Views From The 6”, Birdman and Lil Wayne’s business dispute, working with Rhianna and the best lessons he’s learned from his mother and father as well. It was definitely a candid interview. A new show will join the Revolt programming lineup titled “Global Spin: Respect The DJ”. Premiering May 5 (7 p.m. ET , encore at 10 p.m.ET), the show looks at the personal and professional lives of the music industry’s top flight DJs. DJ Envy, host of Power 105 New York’s The Breakfast Club, will be the focus of the first 30-minute episode of “Global Spin: Respect The DJ”. With cameras following him over a 48 hour period, Envy provides an intimate look at how he balances his morning show duties in tune with his work as a DJ and his family life. Revolt noted that the show “will reveal to viewers the influence and impact the modern DJ has on music and culture.”. It should be worth watching.
