It looks like one should ponder whether or not singer Sza is quitting the music industry. The Top Dawg Entertainment signee announced yesterday that her album is being held up primarily by her label via a Twitter post. Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Terrance “Punch” Henderson has yet to directly respond to the tweet. However, shortly after Sza’s post was published, he shared an image of Health Ledger’s Joker with an lol caption beneath it. Sza released her debut EP “See-Sza-Run” in 2012. Upon signing with Top Dawg Entertainment in 2013, she released “S” followed by 2014’s “Z”. Her forthcoming studio effort, “A”, is awaiting a release date. Singer Ciara, who recently made headlines for her marriage to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, is now pursuing a modeling career with her signing to IMG Models. The Atlanta native has lent her flawless looks and willowy frame to several campaigns. She has been the face of Roberto Cavalli’s autumn/winter 2016 campaign, the first American ambassador for Top Shop, and was in the latest campaign for Keds. In addition, she’s a long time muse for Givenchy, cultivating friendships with  designers Riccardo Tisci, Ralph Lauren and Peter Dundas. Now, gracing the cover of #Legend Magazine, Ciara posed for a stunning photo shoot by Dennis Leupold. She can be seen wearing designs by Balmain, Versace, Lanvin, Naeem Khan, Givenchy, Saint Laurent and others. During her interview, the singer/actress discussed her foray into modeling, her fantasy wedding day, motherhood, forthcoming music and more. The highly anticipated BET produced New Edition biopic, “The New Edition Story”, now has an air date. The official air date and time will be January 24, 2017, and at that time, fans will get an opportunity to see the story of how five young boys from Boston became one of the biggest R&B groups of the 1980’s. During the three night series, the biopic will focus on the group’s 30 year history, which includes breakups, makeups and performances. The members of New Edition were involved with the production, so fans can be sure there will be a lot of juicy details regarding what went on behind the scenes. The film stars Byshere Y. Gray as  Michael Bivins, Elijah Kelly as Ricky Bell, singer/songwriter Luke James as Johnny Gill, Algee Smith as Ralph Trevant, Keith Powers as Ronnie DeVoe and newcomer Woody McClain as Bobby Brown. Following his “Tonight Show” performance last night, rapper Chance the Rapper is preparing for his next musical adventure, remixing Kit Kat’s “Give Me A Break” jingle. The 30 second add features the Chicago native perusing the candy aisle of a convenience store, while wearing  a bear Halloween costume. He hears someone call his name, only to realize that it’s his face superimposed on a Kit Kat wrapper. This reinterpretation of “Give Me A Break” marks the first time the lyrics have been changed in 30 years as well as the first time a recording artist has revamped the jingle. Cable channel MTV is revamping its “MTV Docs” beginning with a special conversation featuring President Barak Obama and rapper Mackelmore titled “Prescription For Change: Ending America’s Opioid Crisis”. The hour long documentary, which debuts today at the White House’s South Lawn Festival, will discuss the opioid epidemic, as the two discuss their own experiences with substance use. The documentary is sure to educate many on substance abuse and how to combat it.
