Singer/songwriter/Broadway star Deborah Cox has been captivating audiences with her renditions of Whitney Houston classics in the musical “The Bodyguard.” Now, the Grammy  nominated singer has revealed that she plans to release an EP of recorded versions of songs from the musical. She told The Source that this is an opportunity for fans to hear the songs they’ve been requesting. She added that the EP will be released at the end of this month. R&B group Cherish will return to the spotlight after a four year hiatus. Back in March, they released the single “Going In Circles”, but disappeared after that. During a Facebook Live! session, sisters Fallon and Felicia shared their excitement over the  group’s forthcoming new music with fans. In addition to the new music, the group also plans to release some visuals and hit the road to get up close and personal with fans. Sisters Farrah and Neosha were absent from the video, so it’s unclear whether the comeback will include all four members. Following the release of the visual for the single “Groundhog Day”, rapper Wale has returned with the visual for the single “Running Back”, which is another collaboration with rapper Lil Wayne. In the colorful clip,  the Washington DC native, who once  hit the gridiron as a college football player, and Lil Wayne, a die hard Green Bay Packers fan, bounce around the set while weaving in football references in their rhymes. “Running Back” is included on Wale’s forthcoming release “SHINE.” Rapper 50 Cent’s son, Marquis Jackson, is following in his father’s footsteps, but may not be crediting him as one of his inspirations. Jackson just released the single “Different” yesterday, which also happens to be the 14th anniversary of the release of his dad’s debut album “Get Rich Or Die Trying.” Instead of honoring his father with the song, Jackson took the opposite approach by calling 50 Cent out for not having the best relationship with his son. Jackson told hip hop outlet Rap-Up that his father was his superhero during his formative year but things change some time later. He added that the song is more or less him venting his frustrations. The nearly three minute track doesn’t focus entirely on 50 Cent, however. Jackson also raps about his flourishing rap career. His debut mixtape, “Escape”, will be released sometime this year. Neither 50 Cent nor his representatives have responded to Jackson’s comments.
