Chris Brown has been back on social media heavy and today he has unveiled the cover art for his long-awaited sixth studio album ‘X.’ A shirtless Breezy looks up to the sky as a large red X covers part of his head and torso. He had previously used part of the black-and-white photo as a promo image.
Over the weekend, he announced that the follow-up to 2012′s Fortune will hit stores on September 16.
Most recently ‘X‘ has been led by the platinum single “Loyal” and the follow-up “New Flame” featuring Usher and Rick Ross.
During past interviews about the album Chris revealed he had collaborated with Kendrick Lamar (“Autumn Leaves”), Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B. and Nicki Minaj (“Love More”) , as well as producers Timbaland, Diplo, Polow Da Don, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy. There is also a rumored collabo with Drake that may appear on the album.
DJ Khaled has recruited some of R&B’s hottest artists for his next single and video. Over the weekend the We The Best boss took over a house in the Hollywood Hills with Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, and Jeremih to shoot the upcoming visual, directed by Gil Green.
“Squad gettin money together!” said August as he posed alongside Breezy on an orange Lambo.
The New Orleans crooner shot scenes poolside with a bikini-clad babe, and Pia Mia stopped by to visit her pal Chris.
The song is slated to be the next single off Khaled’s eighth album I Changed A Lot, due out this fall.

This past Saturday was a moment for the stars. Well, urban stars at least. Chris Brown and Diddy’s stepson Quincy Brown – who is the son to ’90s R&B act Al B. Sure! – hosted a day to remember with their Celebrity Kickball Game in L.A.
Featuring an all-star cast inclusive of Omarion, Jamie Foxx, Kevin McCall, Keke Palmer, Ne-Yo, The Game, Christina Millian and many more, the competition set friends and family members on opposing sides to see who would claim the victory. With proceeds benefitting Chris’ charity, Symphonic Love, the game was a hit with the LA community.
Igniting the competitive side in each player and raising temperatures, at the end of the game there could only be one victorious team and that was Breezy’s. Qunicy – whose team included Amber Rose, Keke Palmer, The Game, and Ne-Yo didn’t quite make the cut, but put up a good fight and provided great entertainment for fans.
Ending the game with a performance of his single “Loyal” and appreciation for Team Breezy, this event was surely one to enjoy.

“Smoke, Drink, Breakup” singer Mila J is ready to jump back into the game full force! While her latest vocals can be found on Trey Songz’s Trigga album, it’s time for the beauty to deliver her own project for fans to enjoy.

Featuring “Fancy” chart topper Iggy Azaela, the single is titled “My Main” and is said to host a release date in the coming weeks. Iggy isn’t the only person featured on Mila’s Motown debut.

Rihanna might be absent from the Instagram world, but that hasn’t stopped her from working the camera wherever she goes.
Looking effortlessly flawless in every shot, the singer took a break from recording her new album to enjoy the 2014 World Cup Final game. While we’re used to seeing her on the sidelines on many NBA games, Rihanna made it very clear that she’s been following the World Cup series since its kick off earlier this summer.
Showing her love for Brazil by arming her body with paint, flashing a little skin, and posing with fans, Rihanna is the true definition of fun.

Solange is getting right for summer as she graces the cover of Lucky magazine. The 28-year-old fashionista shows off her obsession with color blocking in the vibrant images, shot by Todd Cole.
The magazine caught up with the “Losing You” singer in New Orleans, where she lives with her nine-year-old son, Julez, and her boyfriend, video director Alan Ferguson.
In the August issue, she speaks out on her bold style, musical growth, new album, and the infamous elevator fight with Jay Z, which she refers to as “that thing.”
Read highlights from the interview below:
Over the July 4th holiday weekend Sevyn Streeter celebrated her 28th birthday while in New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival.
Friends, family and fellow artists joined the R&B singer at Muriel’s Reasturant to eat, drink and party. Sevyn was joined by the likes of Trey Songz, Tank, Raheem DeVaughn, Kenny Burns and more at the private birthday bash.
After the meal each shared some special words for Sevyn, and she was serenaded by Tank and Trey as they wished her a Happy Birthday.

R&B songstress Keyshia Cole is really on the move! While her album Point of No Return isn’t due out until later this summer, it’s clear to see that the singer is putting in as much effort as possible to get us ready for it.
Turning heads when she released her latest single, “She,” KC is prepping us for one of her next visuals which features 2 Chianz. Titled, “N*ggas Like You,” the duo supplied us with some interesting shots from their upcoming video. Channeling her inner ‘Queen of the Damned’ in one of the shots, we’re wondering just what the theme is going to be for this one.
Take a look at a few of the photos below:
Ring the alarm! Beyoncé and Jay Z shut the city down!
Kicking off their well-anticipated “On The Run” Tour on Wednesday night in South Florida, the duo showed up and gave nothing less than a stellar performance. Packing out the Sun Life Stadium with thousands of fans, Mr. and Mrs. Carter made the night one to remember.
Despite rumors of a troubled marriage, the two seemed more than in love as they performed their 48-song set. With a catalog that ranged from Bey’s greatest numbers and tracks not previously performed to the Jigga Man’s “Song Cry” and top tracks spanning his 15+ year career, this tour will easily go down as one of the greats.
The couple also shared some intimate moments with fans such as clips from their wedding and of little Blue Ivy over the years. Of course, the set wouldn’t have been complete without rumors beginning to swirl of a bulge peeking out from under Beyoncé’s wardrobes.
Is there an additional announcement coming soon? Probably not, but we’re on standby just in case.
