Look what he’s done. The Weeknd’s Starboy is headed straight to No. 1.

The album, which features Kendrick Lamar, Future, and Lana Del Rey, is on track to sell between 350,000-400,000 equivalent album units (225,000-275,000 traditional) in its first week, according to HITS Daily Double. These numbers would easily put him at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Lil Wayne’s Camp Denies Seizure Caused Concert Cancellation

It seems Lil Wayne might have suffered another seizure, despite the rapper’s denial.

The news comes in the wake of Weezy’s SummerFall concert cancellation in Willemstad, Curacao.

According to TMZ, organizers say they were told Wayne wouldn’t attend due to a seizure he suffered on Friday (Nov. 25) in Miami, but Tunechi’s camp says he didn’t attend due to a “breach of contract.”

The festival went on, featuring performances by Rick Ross, French Montana, Meek Mill, Fat Joe, and more.

Wayne has struggled with seizures for quite some time. In June, one of his seizures forced an emergency plane landing. Back in 2013, he revealed that he is “an epileptic” who is “prone to seizures.”

“I’ve had a bunch of seizures,” he said at the time. “Ya’ll just never hear about them.”

Lloyd Unveils ‘Tru’ EP Cover Art & Tracklisting

Lloyd bares it all. Before dropping his first project in five years, Tru, the R&B crooner debuts the tracklisting and nude cover art.

The 5-track EP includes appearances from Rick Ross (“Heavenly Body”) and 2 Chainz, who guests on the remix to the title track.

Appearing naked on the cover, Lloyd says he was able to symbolically share some of his vulnerabilities. “It was really more of an introspective thing,” he told Complex. “Although what you see on the outside is a guy who is apparently balls-to-the-wall naked in the woods near a waterfall, it’s really a moment for me to conquer all the fears that I might have had. All the inhibitions, the insecurities that usually exist in a person; to me it’s no exception. Insecurities of the body, being free in a public place.”

According to Lloyd, the location in North Georgia where the cover was shot was also instrumental to his recording process. “I would go there and oftentimes no one would be there,” he explained. “I would say to myself, ‘Man, I wish I could just run around here naked. It would feel so free.’ I said, you know what, that’s what I’m going to do for the cover art.”

This was particularly important for Lloyd because he says the album is meant to showcase that bare naked honesty. “People try to hide their flaws,” he says, “but I think the flaws make them a beautiful person. And that’s what Tru is all about.”

Tru is set to arrive Dec. 9 and will be followed by Out My Window, Lloyd’s first album since 2011’s King of Hearts.
