Chloe Bailey released her debut solo album, In Pieces, Friday (March 31) via Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records.
The 14-track project features previously released singles “Pray It Away” and “How Does It Feel,” featuring Chris Brown, and more collaborations with Missy Elliott (“Told Ya”) and Future (“Cheatback”). Bailey performed “Cheatback” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week ahead of the LP’s release. In Pieces marks her first solo project apart from her sister duo Chloe x Halle.
Earlier this month, the 24-year-old artist — who also goes by just Chlöe — shared a heartfelt note on Twitter unpacking the inspiration behind the album artwork, which features a red-haired Bailey wearing a Victorian-style baby-blue gown while holding her heart in her right hand.
Today (March 31), Quavo is back with another track dedicated to his late nephew and Migos bandmate, TakeOff, titled “Honey Bun.”
Previously teased earlier this week on Instagram, “Honey Bun” marks the third track released by Quavo since the November 2022 passing of TakeOff. First, he dropped his heartfelt tribute, “Without You,” in early January, commemorating his partner-in-rhyme. Later that month, Quavo teamed with The Maverick City choir to perform the melancholy record at the 2023 Grammy Awards. “I wish I had a time machine/ Just so you take a ride with me/ I miss just how you smile at me/ Unc & Phew until infinity,” sang Quavo onstage.
Then, Quavo continued his output when he dropped “Greatness” last month. The wholesome video spoke on a myriad of topics, most notably the status of Migos, in which the frontman debunked any possibility of a reunion.
Despite still mourning the passing of TakeOff, Quavo found time this month to engage in some lighter activities, including his appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s new show That’s My Jam. The hour-long music and comedy variety games show found Quavo singing a “nonsense karaoke” version of Lil Jon and The Eastside Boyz’s 2002 single “Get Low.” Other stars to appear on That’s My Jam include Chance The Rapper, French Montana, Saweetie, Keke Palmer, will.i.am and more. Listen to “Honey Bun” below.
Nayvadius DeMun Cash, known professionally as Future, is an American rapper from Atlanta, GA. He has released the albums “Pluto” (2012), “Honest” (2014), “DS2” (2015), “Evol” (2016), “Future” (2017) and “I Never Liked You” (2022).
R&B trio The Shindellas recently released the single “Last Night Was Good For My Soul.” The song describes a memorable night where expectations were met. It’s the kind of night when expectations were exceeded to the point that the sun was up, and birds were chirping when the party ended. The trio’s tight three-part harmony is an added bonus. Enjoy.
R&B singer/songwriter Shae Nycole recently released the single “No Strings.” The song is about what the title suggests; lovemaking without the strings or commitments that come with a relationship. “No Strings” follows the single “Run It Up.” She has had singles peak on the Urban AC Top 40 and Indie Urban AC charts. Listen to “No Strings” below.

The Boogie Report recently reported the passing of legendary blues and R&B singer Peggy Scott-Adams at age 74, a star who had not one, but two enviable music careers.
The Florida native had a string of hits in the late 60s, including “Soulshake,” “Lover’s Holiday,” and the duet “Picking Wild Mountain Strawberries” with Jo Jo Benson. Starting her career as a backup singer for Ben E. King, the then Peggy Stoutmeyer showed off her expressive, rich voice, which won her a contract with the SSS label, where she recorded her biggest hits.
Unfortunately, the hits seemed to end as soon as the came, and Scott-Adams moved to California, where she lived a life largely out of the public spotlight. But, in an unexpected turn of events, Scott-Adams went back into the studio in 1996 with producer Jimmy Lewis and issued the controversial single “Bill,” which became her first major chart hit in more than two decades and led to the success of the associated album, Help Yourself. It began a second string of hit songs and albums that extended through the first decade of the 21st century.
The story of Peggy Scott-Adams is one of the fickle nature of the music business, but also of the redemption of talent unexpectedly finding its way back to the top. Rest in Peace, Ms. Scott-Adams.

After paying tribute to his nephew Takeoff at the 2023 Grammy Awards with his melancholy record “Without You,” Quavo looks to continue honoring his former Migos bandmate with his upcoming song “Honey Bun.”
Teased on Instagram this past Monday (March 27), Quavo is shown standing in front of a jeep at what appears to be a music video shoot. The black and white photo included a succinct caption, “Honey Bun,” with the honey emoji, the suggested release date “Friday,” and the hashtag “#ForTake.” On Tuesday (March 28), Quavo shared the single art for the track, showing an aerial view of a series black SUVs parked in an “H” formation.
Last week, Quavo’s estranged cousin Offset shared a teaser of some new music featuring Icewear Vezzo and a posthumous verse from Takeoff. A few months ago, fans were elated to hear Takeoff spar alongside A$AP Rocky on the Metro Boomin’ standout track “Feel The Fiyaaah,” serving as his first set of raps since the Migos star’s passing last November.
Quavo recently released a song titled “Greatness,” where he spoke on the legacy of the Migos and even debunked rumors about a possible reunion. “Don’t ask about the group, he gone, we gone, young n-gga it can’t come back, damn!” said Quavo referring to Takeoff’s death as the reason why the group will never return.
Before Takeoff’s death, he and Quavo released their album Only Built For Infinity Links last fall. The project received praise as the twosome showcased their innate chemistry and skated their way into a top ten debut on the Billboard 200. Singles included their Hot 100 hits “Hotel Lobby” and “To The Bone” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
