R&B veteran Monica Brown supports her new single, “Commitment”, with an accompanying music video. In the clip, directed by fellow R&B singer Teyana Taylor, Monica is fingerprinted and jailed for an undeclared crime, and we can only guest that it was relationship driven. While behind bars, she details her relationship wants with special guests Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Summerella. Serving as an anthem for women, “Commitment” shines through Monica’s glowing and breathtaking delivery, as she highlights the bare necessities to please her. Monica is currently preparing her ninth studio effort, “Chapter 38”, slated for release some time this year via her label, Monideenise Music. In 2016, Monica left RCA Records amicably after two decades. Her last project was 2015’s “Code Red.” HBO and Columbia Records have joined forces to produce an official soundtrack to celebrate the final season of the HBO series “Game Of Thrones.” Titled “For The Throne”, the album is set for release on April 26.

Last year, HBO commissioned a pilot for a “Game Of Thrones” prequel series which will continue the success of the series. “For The Throne” can be pre-ordered via Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, and Columbia Records’s website. Rappers Offset and Cardi B. seem very into one another in the music video for their duet “Clout”, which premiered today. “Clout” is taken from Offset’s debut album “Father Of 4.” The Daniel Russell directed clip begins with Offset checking his phone while seated on a motorcycle. The camera then zooms into a shot of the rapper tickling the ivories of a baby grand piano while sporting a white and black facemask. Cardi then makes her appearance with one leg near Offset’s shoulder, twerking with her tongue out as her black and yellow striped hair is reflected in the funhouse mirrors and she strikes a series of athletic poses, including standing on her head as her husband holds her ankles to the side. Cardi’s verse begins with her sitting inside a pile of lemons, wearing a yellow outfit to match, before the camera switches  to a shot of her in an all black bondage ensemble giving Offset a sensual lap dance. The couple has also collaborated on the tracks “Lick”, “Drip”, “Motorsport” and “Who Want The Smoke?.” Fans should check this one out.
