LaTavia Roberson, formerly of Destiny’s Child, graces the cover of the November/December issue of The Unleashed Voice (TUC). During her interview, she discusses her losses, perseverance, molestation, alcohol, drugs and finding strength in God, in addition to her thoughts on stigma and shame. She also elaborated on her absence from the spotlight, indicating that readers will get more information from her forthcoming book. She’s currently working on a new hand written memoir, a film, as well as television cameos. It’s obvious that she intends to  let her voice be heard. The latest social media trend to hit the world wide web is the #MannequinChallenge, where participants freeze in what appears to be mid-motion of a physical  action. Recently, Destiny’s Child members Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams partook in the trend. It’s lead to rumors that the group could be planning a reunion. They even have an Instagram account. We’ll have to wait and see what transpires. For those who have been wondering if singer Chilli of TLC and actor Nick Cannon are an item, this should settle things. The clip for the Jeremih assisted single “If I Was Your Man” finds the  two in bed, overlooking the ocean. They share a few hugs and kisses, as the sun sets, the rapper/actor brings milk and cookies to the bed while Jeremih sings. The two seem to have hit it off. The chemistry between the two is undeniable. With today being election day, rapper Ty Dolla $ign has recruited fellow rapper Future to help spread a little patriotism in the visual for the single “Campaign.” In the clip, the West Coast crooner leads a twerk session while in front of an American flag. He even does his part by sporting a suit alongside several well dressed men to bolster his presidential appeal for the video. With the two MCs showcasing their allegiance to America, the  least the rest of us can do is our civic duty by  heading to the poles. After announcing that the Meadows Festival would be his last show for a long time, rapper J. Cole assisted Jay Z, Big Sean and Chance the Rapper at a Hilary Clinton rally, leaving fans begging for more. One consolation is the fact that the Spillage Village collective gave fans a treat by releasing a full version of the single “Can’t Call It”, featuring the Fayetteville NC native. The Spillage Village version features the same J. Cole verse heard on Jermaine’s interlude from DJ Khaled’s “Major Key”, as well as a guest verse from Cole’s Dreamville signee Bas. “Can’t Call It” is taken from Spillage Village’s forthcoming album “Bears Like This Too Much”, which includes a guest appearance by Quentin Miller.
