Chris Brown‘s trial for misdemeanor assault in Washington, D.C., has been put on hold for months after prosecutors declined to grant immunity to his bodyguard, who would be a key witness in the case.
Young R&B crooner B. Smyth is doing it for the ladies in his new video to “Twerkoholic“! Already deemed as a strip-club anthem, the song takes its title and goes to work.
Filled with women of every color and curve, the Florida native does all he can to get the ladies up and moving for the music. While the ladies are busy showing off their moves, B makes it his point to show off his gorgeous smile and bare chest in the latest installment from the B. Smyth’s Florida files.

Jake&Papa are fully loaded and playing a dangerous game in the bedroom on their new single “Gun Charge” featuring Skeme. The Los Angeles based R&B duo premiered the song from their ‘Athena’s Erotica‘ EP this past Easter Sunday, with DJ Skee on 102.7 KIIS FM.
“[The song is] inspired by the sweet seduction of a woman,” says Jake&Papa. “Her sex appeal is killer, seductive & arousing to the point where one can only be compared to a pistol off safety — and we are at war, sexually.”
“We’re playing Russian roulette with a fully loaded clip / Keep my finger on the trigger, once I got you to the top, blast off for a ni**a,” they sing on the metaphor heavy song.
Take a listen to the new single below. You can pick up their ‘Athena’s Erotica‘ EP on iTunes now.

August Alsina has given the world his Testimony, and the fans have shown their support! The rising star’s debut album has landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 1 on the R&B chart, selling over 67,000 copies of the NNTME/Def Jam album.
August’s tale of survival has been preceded by numerous fan favorite releases including “Get Ya Money” featuring Fabolous, and the singles “I Luv This Sh*t” featuring Trinidad James, “Ghetto” featuring Yo Gotti, “Make It Home” featuring Jeezy and the most recent “Kissin On My Tattoos.”
The release date of Testimony carried personal significance for August; April 15th was the birthday of his older brother, Melvin LaBranch III, who inspired August to pursue music. Tragically, Melvin was gunned down in New Orleans in 2010, just days before August’s 18th birthday.
“As an artist,” August reflects, “I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people. How much I want my personal business to be judged. I think the EP struck a good balance of who I am and what I’ve been through, but that was just the beginning. Nothing is held back on TESTIMONY. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”

The next single lifted off Pharrell‘s acclaimed new album G I R L is the opening track “Marilyn Monroe.” After receiving some unnecessary backlash over supposedly not featuring any African American women on his album cover, which he actually did, the hit-maker makes a strong statement for the beautiful dark skinned ladies with the stunning single cover art. Featuring model Khadija Shari, the image might also be the first look at the upcoming visuals, which we can expect very soon.
“What I wanted to do is sort of reverse the connotation behind these statuesque standards of what beauty has to be,” Pharrell said about the song. “You can be every color, any shape, any size and any sexual orientation, because you’re a girl or a woman. We at I Am Other [his company] believe that what makes you different, is what makes you special.”
