Prior to the premiere of Freeform’s “Grownish”, the spinoff to “Blackish”, cast members Chloe x Halle released the visual “Grown”, which they wrote and produced for the show. Filled with playful social media moments, the sister duo sing about experiencing feelings of personal growth and maturity. “Grownish” will premiere January 3, 2018 on Freeform. Chloe x Halle released their mixtape “The Two Of Us” earlier this year. Underground R&B artist Joyce Wrice recently graced the “Colors” studio stage, delivering an inspired performance. While on a European tour earlier this month, she visited Berlin where she performed her latest single “Good Morning.” Without a doubt, she has a bright future ahead of her. R&B diva SZA closes 2017 with her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart while The Weeknd rises 3-1. All Billboard rankings are dated January 3, instead of a usual Saturday, as Billboard is adjusting chart and magazine issue dates. SZA’s role is the first for a woman following a shut out in 2017. It’s the first since Rihanna’s “Needed Me” topped the Billboard charts in 2016. Congratulations to her! Hip hop magazine The Source closes 2017 with it’s Power 30 issue. In the issue, the magazine profiles “Power” players in hip hop from a business standpoint. Music executive Jimmy Iovine and rapper/producer Dr. Dre grace one of the two covers. Both gentlemen have achieved a great deal not only over the past year, but during the decade. Congratulations to them both.
