After releasing the video for their single “#IWantDat” as well as the single “Song Cry”, Mindless Behavior has announced the release date of their highly anticipated new album, “#OFFICIALMBMUSIC”, which will be June 24. The 11 song project is a blend of dance and pop tracks that reflect the group’s evolution from boy band to grown and sexy. The group has endured line up changes with the addition of new members E.J. and Mike River joining original member Princeton. Fans can pre-order the album on iTunes. After the  less than stellar Prince tribute at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, BET has announced that it has planned a Prince tribute of its own. Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, The Roots, DeAngelo, Sheila E and Maxell have been confirmed as performers for a Prince tribute on the BET Awards, scheduled to air on June 26. Prince received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 201o. The BET Awards will be hosted by “Black-ish” co-stars Tracey Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, who will be hosting for the second consecutive year. One thing’s for certain, the Prince tribute is sure to be amazing! DJ Khaled and actor Ray Liotta are a couple of  “GoodFellas” in the DJ/music producer’s new ad for  Apple Music. In the ad, Khaled and Liotta are being pampered by half a dozen manicurist, pedicurist and masseuses as Khaled attempts to explain how Apple Music works. Indeed, the service offers millions of tracks, including the Doobie Brother’s “Minute By Minute”, per Liotta’s request, then surprise, but the tough guy actor isn’t going to be accused of playing himself. Liotta doesn’t understand Khaled’s catchphrase when he says “Don’t ever play yourself Ray, I’m telling you”, and the scene spirals into an awkwardly intimidating stare down that pays homage to Liotta’s classic gangster film “GoodFellas”. It’s all in fun and no one gets hurt. Both Khaled and Liotta are represented by UTA. Vic Mensa has a story to tell in the visual for his latest single “There’s A Lot Going  On”. The title track of his recently released EP rewinds through the last two-and-a-half years of his life. From the Flint Michigan water crisis, to signing with Roc Nation and Jay Z as well as his personal relationship struggles, the Chicago native plays narrator in front of a blank backdrop as images of people from his memories come forth. Kanye West, who collaborated with Mensa on the single “U Mad”, shared the video on his Twitter and praised the Jake Osmun and Mensa directed clip. Fans who pledge to vote via billboard.com can also receive Mensa’s “TAGO” EP free until July 4.
