So far, this summer might have belonged to Iggy Azalea but to know Nicki Minaj is to know that the ‘Massive Attack’ singer won’t be to keen on sharing the spotlight for that much longer. As of late we have seen a new Minaj unveiled, she’s shed the neon wigs, the outlandish outfits, is sporting less makeup seems to be consciously sporting more demure looks and even seems to have tamed that sometimes wacky personality. Last week Nicki unveiled the cover to her new single ‘Anaconda’ immediately sending social media ablaze with it’s…bootylicious cover art. With a firestorm of hype Nicki has gone and done something unexpected yet again…postponed the release of the single and allegedly changed the cover art.
Minaj took to her Instagram to post a more prim shot from her pink workout bikini photo shoot and attempted to clarify the pushed back the drop date. ”My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4,” she wrote via the social media site, ”I promise you will understand why before the week is out.” ‘Anaconda’ was supposed to release July 28.
Fans are still waiting for the full explanation but in the meantime Minaj did drop brand new music this week with her killer feature on the new Jessie J track ‘Bang Bang’.
We will keep you updated on all things Nicki and bring you the track whenever Minaj chooses to release it!
Robin Thicke is no doubt singing the blues. All seemed to be well in the world of Robin a year ago at this time- the singer was riding high off his insanely popular track Blurred Lines and Thicke’s stock had never been so high. For a moment he was the top artist in the game. Fast forward to summer 2014 and Robin is singing a different tune. The singer released his follow-up album to last years Blurred Lines just last weeks and the result was…tragic.
If you recall, Robin was caught red-handed in the midst of a juicy cheating scandal this past fall and was immediately exiled by his then wife Paula Patton. Thicke immediately began back-pedaling and attempted to win his wife back. The singer was so determined to win her back he named this new album after the actress. Unfortunately for Robin, the album has tanked.
The new studio album, Paula, only sold 530 copies in the U.K. in its first week of sales. To put in contrast, his last album Blurred Lines sold 25,981 copies in July 2013! In the U.S., Thicke’s new album landed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 with sales of 24,000!
Hopefully the singer has a plan to pull his career and marriage out of the gutter!

Did you hear that? That’s the sound of Mariah Carey screaming, “SOS!”.
It seems as though things have gone from bad to worse for the chanteuse as the sales of her new album have hit abysmal lows at retail sotred in the second week of its release. Following the embarrassing record low first week sales of Mariah Carey‘s new album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ last week, the fate of the album is all but sealed after reviewing this week’s numbers.
Yesterday Jenny returned to her block, and when I say block I mean she returned to the Bronx, NY to put on a free concert. All in celebration for her new upcoming album A.K.A releasing on June 17th. The concert was held at Orchard Beach in Pelham Bay and was sponsored by State Farm as it served as one of the concerts for their national concert series. Before J.Lo could grace the stage with some of her new hits, she first had to take it back both with her music and her wardrobe. She donned a custom made bodysuit to resemble her memorable Versace gown from the 2000 Grammy Awards. She even brought out Ja Rule to perform their classic hits “I’m Real” and “Ain’t That Funny”. Many other guest were in attendance such as, Fat Joe, T.I., French Montana, Khloe Kardashian and more.

Poor Mariah. The biggest selling artist of all time released her new album last week and the results were tragic..to say the least. The album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse only managed to shift 56,000 copies in its opening week on the Billboard 200.
Music experts know that across the board album sales have been down for all artists over the past few years but given Mariah’s extensive, loyal fan-base, and her history as someone who can sell albums, her under-performance is devastating and most likely incredibly embarrassing for the talented songstress.
Let’s put things into perspective: her previous album, 2009′s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, also did not debut
