Following the release of “NaNa” and “Ordinary,” Trey Songz keeps the new tracks coming with another release! Tackling Cali rapper YG’s new single “Who Do You Love,” the R&B heartthrob is gearing fans up for what we hope is a new LP this year!

Bringing out Trigga Trey to do some damage on the track, the crooner calls out all the groupies and homie hoppers. Saying, “I’m that n*gga in ya city, but a n*gga from Virgina,” Trey let’s everyone know that if they forgot that he was THAT n*gga, they ’bout to remember!

Although the track is a little under a minute and a half, we’re sure that Trey has more good stuff in store for us soon!

Take a listen to the song below:

With the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ first U.S. performance right around the corner, many stars are jumping in on the fun. Paying homage to the music legends this time is everyone’s favorite, Lauryn Hill.

Stopping by the Late Show with Dave Letterman, the rare appearance saw the star perform the Fab Four’s classic hit, “Something,” off of their Abbey Road album. Showing up in a black hat, plaid dress and a motorcycle jacket, the Grammy-winning artist closed out the week long tribute. Done in the same theatre that the men graced for their first appearance back in 1964, Lauryn and her band did justice to the cover.

Coming right before this weekend’s star studded post Grammy event, “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – A GRAMMY Salute,” it’s refreshing to see Lauryn jump on stage for a televised performance.

Take a look as she wow’s below:

While Beyoncé may be holding down the charts with her music, her baby sisterSolange is out here shutting it down in other ways! As last year announced, the eccentric beauty was named the Creative Consultant and Art Director for the Puma brand, and she’s surely owning up to it!

Although the announcement was given only 3 months ago, it’s clear that Solange has been working hard because the lookbook for the new designs has officially been released. Overloaded with eye-popping colors and designs, the new campaign features women of different skin tones with hair reminiscent of its creator.

Shot by her boyfriend and talented director, Alan Ferguson, the campaign focuses on the sexiness that even women in sneakers can possess. When asked why she chose to sport a fresh pair instead of her stilettos, the multi-talented artist stated:

“When you’re walking from spot to spot, hopping in and out of cabs and the train, by mid-day the thing that suffers the most are your feet. Going out at night? Forget about it! So, I started to try to structure my outfits around a statement sneaker honestly out of practicality.”

Sounds good to us because no one wants a woman with jacked feet! Take a look at the behind the scenes video and a some shots from the campaign below!

K.-Michelle-Can't-Raise-A-Man-Video

K. Michelle‘s longtime fan favorite “Can’t Raise A Man” has finally been given the single treatment, and as expected it’s on it’s way to the top of the R&B charts.  Now, the Memphis songstress premieres the much-anticipated music video for the poignant female empowerment anthem.

Rocking a form fitting burgundy dress, and flowing blond hair, the R&B firecracker belts out the strong song while standing in front of a waterfall. Black and white scenes of troubled relationships switch back and forth throughout the Benny Boom directed visual.

“It’s amazing how one topic can touch women of all ethnicities and backgrounds,” says K. Michelle. “I feel like men nowadays are not holding their own, and the roles are reversed. Ladies you can never raise a man. Maturity, morals and values are instilled in the beginning of their life … you can’t teach somebody morals at 30 or even 23, you can’t do it.”

K’s debut album Rebellious Soul is in stores now. She is working on a musical version of the album for a Broadway/Trapped In The Closet style performance which will air on Vh1 later this year. On Valentine’s Day K. Michelle will release her anticipated ‘Still No F**ks Given‘ mixtape.

Watch the video for “Can’t Raise a Man” below!
