Grammy award winning multiplatinum R&B group 112 returns to the spotlight with their new single “Strawberry” today. This new single is just a taste of what will appear on the group’s forthcoming album “Q, Mike, Slim, Daron”, which is due this fall on Entertainment One. Fresh off their appearance on the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour in 2016, the group has proven that it’s more than capable of creating new exciting sounds. “Strawberry” finds the group combining modern day production with the smooth, harmonious sound that caught the attention of mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs in the 1990’s. Hooky and melodic, the track shows that the group has improved like fine wine and will certainly add more timeless classics to its illustrious career. 112 is preparing for a world tour, which will begin in the U.K. in September and make their way back to the States for the North American leg which will begin in October. “Strawberry” can be purchased on iTunes. The Estate of Michael Jackson has teamed with CBS for a an animated special, which is slated to air this fall. The hour long “Michael Jackson’s Halloween” will feature millennials Vincent and Victoria, voiced by Lucas Till and Kiersey Clemons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The duo find themselves at the mysterious This Place Hotel, located at 777 Jackson Street, where they embark on an adventure before a dance filled finale. The piece will be sound tracked by Jackson’s discography. Christine Baranski, Alan Cumming, Jim Parsons and Brad Garrett also appear as voice actors. Meanwhile, John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, will co-executive produce the Mark A.Z. Dippe produced project. Singer/songwriter/producer Ne-Yo recently stopped by Hot 97 for an interview with Ebro In The  Morning. The hit maker spoke with Ebro regarding the beginning of his career, including his record deal, which was a learning experience for him and lead him to write and produce for other artists. Additionally, many have noticed that Ne-Yo has stopped wearing his signature hat, so he discussed how he always wore one in school and when he decided to give it up. As far as his recent work goes, the crooner has served as a judge on the series “World of Dance.” He also revealed that a series based on the original “Step Up” movie is in the works as well. On the home front, he has mended his relationship with his ex Monyetta Shaw and revealed when he knew he was ready for marriage to Crystal Renay. Ne-Yo is currently working on his seventh studio effort. He released the lead single “Another Love Song” last month.
