Rapper Lil Wayne has finally released his highly anticipated and long delayed album The Carter V.” The project arrives following a lengthy legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money Records as well as on Wayne’s 36th birthday. Despite all this, the album features special guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, XXXTentacion, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Nivea and his daughter Reginae. “The Carter V” was released via Wayne’s own label Young Money and distributed by Universal Records. Wayne now solely owns his imprint as part of his settlement with Birdman. One year after the release of her album “Take Me Apart”, Kelela-Kaytranada returns with “Kaytranada_Waiting_115 BPM”, her remix of “Waiting.” “Take Me A-Part, The Remixes”, which is due on October 5, was executive produced by Kelela-Kaytranada and Asmara of Nguzunguzu. Following his 2016 effort “Wild Kids, Swiss singer/songwriter Christian O returns with the music video “HellFrye.” Filmed in his hometown Zurich, the clip features overhead shots of the city skyline, as Christian connects with a woman in his neighborhood. They meet later at a classic car meet filled with fire breathers and drivers doing donuts. Christian O has released several singles and EPs in addition to working with award winning producers, drawing inspiration from his experiences, travels and relationships. His sound can be described as a blend of Pop/R&B/EDM and Rock. Jacquees travels to London for the music video of the same name. “London” is the latest release from the Cash Money Records crooner’s debut album “4275.” Jacquees and his co-star enjoy a night out in London, first having drinks at a local bar and then taking in the sights with a late night drive. After an intimate conversation and foreplay in the car, the two go to their hotel, where they make love until sunrise. Jacquees initially recorded the track in London, and at the request of fans, he returned to the UK to shoot the video. Fans will love this one.

Honey Cone is an American female R&B group that rose to prominence during the 1970s. Honey Cone was formed by Edna Wright, Carolyn Willis and Shelly Clark in 1969. They were the first group signed to Hot Wax Records. Each member had previous experience, with Willis having been a member of Girlfriends, Clark a former member of the Ikettes, and Wright a member of the gospel group Cogics. Wright and Willis were also members of The Blossoms. They had been singing together for a short time when they were spotted by producer Eddie Holland, who had left Motown Records along with Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier to form their own organization Holland-Dozier-Holland. Holland named the group Honey Cone for his favorite flavor of ice cream. Although the the group was based in Los Angeles, their material was recorded in Detroit. Their debut single, “While You’re Out Looking For Sugar”, reached #25 on the Billboard R&B chart, while the follow up, “Girls, It Ain’t Easy”, reached #8. Their third single, “Want Ads”, was their most commercially successful, topping both the R&B and pop charts. The single sold over one million copies and was certified gold in May 1971. That same year, Honey Cone had another number one pop and R&B hit with “Stick Up”, which also sold one million units. The group also had chart success with the singles “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show” and “The Day I Found Myself.” However, none of the three Honey Cone albums of 1973 sold well. Honey Cone disbanded in 1973.
