musical-notesSinger Jo Jo has released the visual for the single “FAB”, which features a guest appearance by rapper Remy Ma and is taken from her third studio effort “Mad Love.” An acronym for “fake a** bitches, the song calls out the fake carers, freeloaders, and negative nancies. The clip shows Jo Jo around Remy Ma’s stomping grounds as she performs the song. In addition, she’s preparing a world tour to promote the album “Mad Love.” The trek will begin in Europe in Dublin, Ireland on Jan. 15, and later make stops in Paris, Germany, London and Italy before heading to the U.S. for the second leg, stopping in the west coast, mid west and south before heading to the east coast. This is a tour fans won’t want to miss. Singer/songwriter Sevyn Street has finally announced the release date of her highly anticipated debut album, “Girl Disrupted.” The album is due on Jan. 27, 2017. The songstress confirmed the release date in a series of tweets yesterday. The album will arrive in the mist of the forthcoming “Girl Disrupted Tour”, which is slated to begin on Jan. 12 in St. Louis and end on Feb. 12 in Los Angles. Over the  past few months, Streeter has teased fans with the singles “Polly”, featuring Gucci Mane, “My Love For You” and “D4L”, and more music is on the way. The single “Before I Do” will be released on Friday. Singer/songwriter/producer The Dream recently made an appearance on Atlanta radio station V103 for an interview with The Ryan Cameron Morning Show. During the interview, he previewed two singles, one of which featured Usher. While he didn’t reveal when the singles would be released or what project they’d appear on, it now appears that things have changed. Nearly a year after the release of the art film “Genesis”, the hitmaker took to Instagram to announce his forthcoming EP, “Love You To Death”, will be released on Dec. 9. Singer/songwriter Frank Ocean is now ready to add his sound to the festival circuit in 2017. The crooner is slated to appear at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama; the Panorama Music Festival in New York; and the Sasquatch Music Festival in Quincy, Washington. In addition, Ocean will head overseas for more shows. Yesterday, he confirmed forthcoming appearances at Denmark’s Northside Fest in June and London’s Lovebox Festival in July. The scheduled festival appearances mark Ocean’s return to the stage after a three year hiatus. He surprised fans with the efforts “Endless” and “Blonde” earlier this year. Both projects have been critically acclaimed and signal a new independent phase in Ocean’s career. Clearly, Ocean is a man who dances to the beat of his own drum, which won’t change anytime soon. It’s been over  a week since rapper Kanye West was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation. While many celebrities have offered their best wishes to the rapper, Wiz Khalifa recently offered an alternative remedy. During an interview with gossip site TMZ, Khalifa jokingly stated that West needs to smoke some weed. Earlier this year, West and Khalifa had a skirmish over Twitter after West announced that his seventh studio effort would be titled “Waves”, which was later titled “The Life Of Pablo”. Wiz didn’t immediately call out the Chicago native.  Instead, he waved a flag for Max B, an incarcerated MC who launched the “wavy” movement. West later went into a lengthy diatribe against Khalifa. The two later had a man to man talk over the phone. With Childish Gambino’s third studio effort scheduled for release on Friday, the rapper offered fans a unique experience. Earlier today, the MC directed followers to his Pharos app where they were treated to footage of his Pharos concert back in September, which took place at the Joshua Tree in California. He also unveiled several options for fans who would like to purchase his latest offering. Fans can purchase the album for $11.99 or a bundle with a limited edition poster, which retails for $14.99. In addition, a “virtual reality” vinyl of the album will be available for $59.99, but won’t be delivered until a yet to be announced date in 2017. Fans certainly have a lot to look forward to.
