MUSIC NEWS: Drake’s Entire Album Is on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

Seven more songs debut from surprise album, giving Drake a record-breaking 21 entries.

Drake rules 42 percent of the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (dated March 7), as the hip-hop star has 21 concurrent songs on the tally — breaking his own record for the most simultaneously charting hits in the history of the chart. (The new chart will be refreshed on Billboard‘s websites on Thursday, Feb. 26.)

Seven more tracks from his surprise album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Latedebut on the newest chart, joining the 10 already-charting cuts from the set. Thus, all 17 tracks from Drake’s album are charting on the tally.

Drake Becomes First Rapper to Top Artist 100

His grand total climbs to 21 charting tracks, as he’s also a featured act on four additional songs.

Drake surpasses his previous record for the most concurrently-charting songs — 14 – which he matched a week ago (on the chart dated Feb. 25) following the debut of his album.

The new songs enter off the strength of downloads and streaming, with every track from the set logging no less than 1.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 22, according to Nielsen Music. Of the album’s tracks, “Energy” leads the pack, taking Streaming Gainer honors and increasing by 201 percent (to 4.6 million clicks), with 82 percent stemming from Spotify plays. Sales of the cut also rise (up 21 percent to 77,000 downloads), driving it 4-1 on Rap Digital Songs — his first No. 1 as a lead act (and fourth overall) on the still-young chart.

Drake Decoded: 10 Subliminal Shots on ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’

Of his latest arrivals on the chart, “Know Yourself” earns the Hot Shot Debut at No. 23, owed in part to a 13 percent spike in downloads (to 15,000).

If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late remains at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, selling 129,000 copies in its second week (down 74 percent). The momentum of the new project secures a second week atop the Billboard Artist 100, where Drake became the first rapper to earn a No. 1 spot.

Future Says Ciara Didn’t Upgrade Him

Let me upgrade you?

We recently reported that Ciara “subliminally” addressed her

split with rapper Future in a new single titled “I Bet.”

Ci-Ci lays it all on the track in the ballad-esque tune with lyrics like:

“I bet you start lovin me, soon as I start lovin someone else
Somebody better than you
I bet you start needing me, soon as you see with someone else
Somebody other than you
And I know it hurts…you know that it hurts your pride
But, you thought the grass was greener on the other side
I bet you start lovin me, soon as I start lovinsomeone else
Somebody better than you”

The singer sings about upgrading the rapper and says he wouldn’t be who he is without her. Well, it looks like Future is firing back and says not so fast ho!

MUSIC NEWS: Michael McDonald Criticizes Kanye West’s Grammys Beck Rant

By Rhonda Nicole

"Dave Koz & Friends At Sea 2013" - Travel Highlight

Shots fired?  Almost everyone has offered their commentary on Kanye West’s latest attempt to pry a well-deserved award from a peer’s hands; at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, the self-proclaimed “genius” made his way onto the stage for yet another episode of “I’ma let you finish” as an orange-clad and smirking Prince presented Beck with the Album of the Year award.  After the show, Kanye opined that Beck should give his award to Beyoncé (whom Beck beat out in the category) and respect real artistry.

Not so fast, says former Doobie Brothers frontman and multi-Grammy Award winner, Michael McDonald.  In an interview with ESPN Radio’s Dan le Batard, McDonald went in on the hip-hop superstar saying, “When Kanye gets to a point where he can actually put a couple of notes together either vocally or two bars of valid music playing an instrument, then he might have a right to criticize somebody else.”

Since the Grammys, several videos have circulated around the internet showing the multiple times Kanye has offered his awards to someone he felt was more deserving than he.  If nothing else, the clips prove that Ye is practicing what he preaches.  Still, the verdict is still out on whether insisting that other artists follow suit falls under the category of doing too much.

MUSIC NEWS: Mannie Fresh Shares His Thoughts On Lil Wayne’s Issues With Cash Money

Mannie Fresh-Lil Wayne
by
The latest observer to weigh in on the situation is former Cash MONEY producer Mannie Fresh. The board master for hit records like “Tha Block Is Hot” and “Go D.J.” believes Wayne is being creatively stifled by the label. According to Fresh, Weezy wanting to branch out musically from the YMCMB camp may play a factor in his desire to cut ties.
“I think he’s going — real talk — ‘I could probably use Drake and Nicki, but I’ve done that so many times,’” said Mannie. “Let’s get out there and do things so I can show that I am bigger than life.”

Wayne’s list of career collaborations includes working with many industry heavyweights. His catalog features cuts with Jay Z, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Destiny’s Child, and OutKast. But Fresh still thinks Wayne is missing that huge crossover joint effort that would solidify his status as one of the elite artists on the planet.

“Wayne has given us some great albums, but he has never given us that album with like a Justin Timberlake on it – with features where like, OK, this is what we expect from an artist of your caliber,” Mannie stated. “If I did do a song and I got Justin Timberlake on it, I got Justin Timberlake fans as well. I think Wayne is starting to see it in that way. Hip Hop can only bring you so far.”

RAP GOSSIP: K.Michelle’s Groupie Claims He Smashed & Smelled Fish & Chips!

K. Michelle Smelly Cat

 HSK Exclusive – K. Michelle has a groupie named Rashad, claiming that the Love ‘Em’ All lyricist mid-section smells like fish and chips.

A Washington D.C. man is saying he recently had a one night stand with the singer/reality star and ended up disappointed.

Here’s what Rashad posted on the internet about K. Michelle:

“I attended the opening of club Bliss in D.C. the other night only because I wanted to see if K. Michelle, ass was as big in person as it looked on television. When I got in the club it was late and she was already in the VIP section with her crew.

She stood up to make an announcement and I move through crowd to get to her and I had a rose in my hand and I raised it in the air. She was talking about safe sex and paychecks. She noticed me and I said “Hi my sweet.”

She took the rose and told her security guard to let me in her section. Once as I got in VIP she asked me “What’s my name?” I replied “Rashad” she didn’t say anything else before she was about leave the club and asked “If I had a girl to get home to?” I told her I was single, but I wanted to taste her p*ssy.

She looked at me shocked but smile and gave me her phone number and told me “Call me in an hour.” Security escorted her out the club. An hour later I called her and she told me which hotel she was staying at. I drove over expecting to just fuck but what I got was something I’d never imagine.

I knocked on her room door and she yelled “Come in” there was music playing but I smelled the aroma of fish. I thought she was eating but she walked out the bathroom in a robe. I walked over and smiled and she gave me a hug and I untied her robe. My eyes got big as I saw her t*tties. They were big and hard.

Her stomach looked like a Kangaroo pouch but I didn’t mind. I could’ve been worse. It was that ass I interested in. It was big and soft although her legs were knock kneed and small. She was built like a centaur but I was all good. Because I was about to get my nut.

She asked me if I had a condom? I replied “Yes” and I asked if I could eat her pussy? she said “Yes.” I wanted her to ride my face. So, I picked her up but I immediately put her back down. Her p*ssy smelled so strong! P*ssy smelled like fish and chips! She asked me “What’s wrong?” I replied “Let’s f*ck.”

Yeah! I hit it even though it was stank. We f*cked for about 20 minutes and I busted on her ass. She told me she comes to town often and told me to hit her up. I blocked her number when I got to my car.

I could see why she can’t keep a man!”
