A day after RCA Records dropped R. Kelly, there are now reports that Tinashe has also parted ways with the Sony Music label.
Fans noticed that the “2 On” singer has been removed from the label’s website. In November, Tinashe may have alluded to her split with RCA by posting a screenshot of a “404 Not Found” error message that displays when you try to access her artist page on RCARecords.com. There has been no official confirmation from Tinashe or RCA.
The 25-year-old released three projects on the label including her 2014 debut Aquarius and last year’s Joyride, as well as her 2016 mixtape Nightride.
Tinashe had expressed frustration with RCA in the past, claiming the label prioritized other acts including labelmate ZAYN over her. When asked why her sophomore album Joyride had been delayed, she once told a fan: “They’re focused on Zany lmao that’s the real tea.”
She also butted heads with her A&R when she voiced her opinion about the direction of her music. After expressing that she did not want to record a particular song, the label rep suggested she go home. “He turned to me and said, ‘Well, then we can just go home.’ At this point, I burst into tears,” she told Lena Dunham as part of the actress’ “Women of the Hour” podcast in 2017.
Meanwhile, the singer is venturing into other areas. She is set to play Mimi in Fox’s upcoming live production of the musical “Rent” alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Mario, Kiersey Clemons, Jordan Fisher, and more. “Rent” will air live on Sunday, Jan. 27.
Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers III is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2019.
After announcing the third installment in his Revenge of the Dreamers series earlier this month, J. Cole assembled a dream team to record the compilation over the course of 10 days in Atlanta. In addition to Dreamville’s own Bas, Cozz, Ari Lennox, Reason, Zeke, Christo, and EarthGang, other artists including T.I., DJ Khaled, Wale, Swizz Beatz, and Big K.R.I.T. also joined the “rap camp.”
On Wednesday (Jan. 16), Cole announced that the sessions were complete and thanked everyone involved. “The Revengers sessions are done thank you to every artist and producer that came through,” he tweeted. “I love y’all, that shit was beautiful. Next step, finish the songs and let the feel em.”
While fans anxiously await the release, Dreamville co-founder Ibrahim Hamad took to Instagram Stories to share a snippet of a never-before-heard Cole track that may appear on the project.
“Don’t let Cole know I’m playing y’all this,” he captioned the video, which included the hashtag #Revenge.
Now he’s faced with the tough task of narrowing down the tracks. “I’m a miss Rap Camp and all my rap camp friends lol,” tweeted Ibrahim. “Good times, now time to finish this album and the other Dreamville music coming 2019.”
James Blake dropped his fourth album Assume Form on Friday. In addition to the Travis Scott and Metro Boomin-assisted “Mile High,” the project features a rare collaboration with André 3000.
On “Where’s the Catch?,” the OutKast legend adds his immaculate flow over Blake’s piano-driven production. “This may be a little bit heady…I hate heady-ass verses,” says 3 Stacks before launching into his poetic verse.
“So perfect, so perfect, so why do I look for curtains?” he raps. “Uncertain but certainly false alarm’s alertin’ / A burden in beautiful times, a garden snake / Won’t bite me, but frightens me like I know I’m ate / I know I ain’t, I know it.”
Blake shared his excitement over the collaboration. “I was, and remain, inspired by OutKast. Catching him now is maybe even more special to me, because the way he writes is just so good!” he told Apple Music. “I love the way he balances slight abstraction with this feeling of paranoia. The line ‘Like I know I’m eight, and I know I ain’t’—anxiety bringing you back to being a child, but knowing that you’re supposed to feel strong and stable because you’re an adult now. That’s just so beautifully put.”
Starting Feb. 18, Blake will launch a North American tour in support of Assume Form, with stops in Boston, Chicago, and New York, wrapping March 16 in Los Angeles.
Gucci Mane’s baby mama Sheena Evans is demanding the rapper increase his child support payments from the current $2,026/month to $20,000/month. Evans argues it’s unfair that she has to rely on government programs such as welfare and Section 8 housing options in order to survive.
