The 22 city trek will begin on Feb. 3, 2017, in Raleigh, NC, and includes stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, New Orleans and more. The tour will support Musiq’s seventh studio effort “Life On Earth”, which produced the hit single “I Do.” The Nusoul Revival Tour” seeks to send the message that “Good Music Still Lives!” while supporting artists whose music is the soundtrack, and in many cases, a blueprint for  our lives. It also seeks to raise awareness regarding  Alzheimer’s disease, which impacts over five million Americans. Also appearing on the tour, in select cities, are Grammy winning singer/songwriter Christette Michele, Grammy winning singer/songwriter/producer Dwele and Grammy nominated group The Foreign Exchange. 15-time Grammy winning singer/songwriter/producer Alicia Keys graces the cover of the February 2017 issue of Allure magazine. In the issue, she discusses her no makeup movement, politics and more. Keys told the magazine that she believes that makeup is a form of expression and everyone has the right to expression themselves however they want. When the conversation turned to politics, Keys said she wants everyone to remain optimistic of the incoming administration. Yesterday, it was reported that singer/actress Jennifer Holiday backed out of her planned performance at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump because the LGBT community was upset with the decision. Now, TMZ is saying that the reason could have been more sinister. A representative for Holiday told TMZ that the singer pulled out of the event due to death threats as well as the LGBT backlash. There’s no word on whether the death threats came from an affiliated group. Congratulations to singer K Michelle are in order. Following what has been a long rollercoaster ride of relationships, the songstress and reality star confirmed that she’s engaged to current boyfriend Dr. Kastan Sims. The announcement was made after a photograph she posted to her Instagram caused a stir online. No word on a wedding date. With their new album “Culture” scheduled for release on Jan. 27, Migos appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night to perform their latest single “Bad And Boujee.” Decked out in Supreme hoodies, the group brought its infectious energy to the Kimmel crowd along with special guest Lil Uzi Vert. Earlier this month, Golden Globe winner Donald Glover praised the group, calling them “The Beatles of our generation” while accepting an honor at the award ceremony. Shortly after, streams for Migos spiked 24. 3% on Spotify. “Bad And Boujee” also went on to usurp Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” in the top spot of the Hot 100. Atlanta rapper Ralo is on the lamb from the feds in the visual for his latest single “My Brothers”, featuring Future and taken from his mixtape “Diary Of The Streets 2”, which was released in August.

Ralo is also preparing the release of his forthcoming project “Famerican Gangster 2”, the sequel to his 2015 effort. The rapper assures that fans can expect to hear quality music on this project.
