    Beyoncé was definitely the center of attention when she released her surprise self-titled album last December. She also seemingly inspired other artists to release music in a similar way, which may be part of the reason she was tapped for TIME's "100 Most Influential People Of 2014" list. On top of being recognized among fellow influencers like Serena Williams and Barack Obama, Yoncé also scored the cover of the mag.

    It seems that every time Future talks about his role in allegedly writing "Drunk In Love" it becomes more convoluted. The controversy began when Fewtch debuted his song, "Good Morning" -- which bears quite a resemblance to "Drunk In Love" -- live at SXSW.

    Jay Z Seen Rocking Five Percent Nation Medallion At Barclays Center

    Last week at the Barclays center, Jay-Z was seen rocking large gold pendant that serves as a symbolic representation of the Five Percent Nation affiliation. What is Five Percent Nation and what do they believe? The author of two books on the group, Michael Muhammad Knight explains, “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally. Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”

    Two women are suing Beyoncé after they were trampled by a mob of fans at her concert in Chicago last December. According to the suit, Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson arrived early United Center in hopes to get as close as possible to the stage in the general admission section. When the gates opened, there was a mad rush to the front of the venue, during which the two women were knocked to the ground and trampled, leaving them unconscious and with bones broken.

    Future debuted a new song at SXSW that bore a striking resemblance to Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love". Due to his brief (somewhat confusing) introduction to the track, as well as the melodic similarities within it, rumors began to circulate that Future had a role in writing the song. In a new interview with Wendy Williams, Fewtch (sort of) cleared things up regarding his contributions to the song, and also spoke about his upcoming wedding to Ciara.

    There are only two new entries within the top 10 of the Billboard 200 this week, and they belong to two rappers: ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi. As we said last week, Q was projected to move 150-160k, but fell slightly under that by moving 138,950 copies opening week. This was nevertheless an extremely strong showing from the TDE rapper, which gave him his first #1 debut as well as that of the label's.

    It's almost time for the ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi chart invasion, but not just yet. We received the first week sales projection for both rappers respective releases, Oxymoron and Satellite Flight, and both are on track to sell a solid amount of albums. Q is looking like he'll do some damage with 150,000-160,000 copies projected, and thus debut at #1 which definitely isn't a bad look, while Kid Cudi will come close behind with 90,000-95,000 copies.

    As soon as Kid Cudi surprise-released his new album Satellite Flight, people started saying he'd "pulled a Beyoncé", something that was also said the Air Yeezys dropped, so it's only a matter of time before Beyoncé just becomes a synonym for "surprise". Whether or not Cudi did take a note from Bey was a valid question however, and it's one he addressed in his recent interview with Complex.

    Overall album sales are up this week by 20% according to Nielsen, and we may have Valentine's Day purchases to blame for this one. Perhaps lovers were picking up Drake's Nothing Was The Same, and some r'n'b albums for V-Day? Along with Drake seeing a rise in sales, so did Justin Timberlake, R. Kelly, Beyonce and John Legend-- those are all very Valentine's Day-worthy releases.

    Although we saw an increase in overall album sales last week, due to the Grammys and the Super Bowl, this week we're back down again, with a 3% decrease compared to last week. While Bruno Mars isn't featured on the list below, it should be noted he's still benefiting from the Super Bowl half-time show, with two of his albums, Unorthodox Jukebox having an astounding 92% increase, and his debut, Doo-Wops & Hooligans benefiting from a 52% increase.

    It's that time of the year again - Valentine's Day! The romantic holiday is upon us and we thought we'd share some of the love in the hip-hop community. Love and hip-hop doesn't have to be synonymous with ratchet behavior and baby daddy / momma drama, although you may be under a different impression if you've ever watched a full episode of VH1's Love & Hip-Hop.

    The Grammys always have their share of memorable performances, and the 56th annual awards will certainly be no different. We'll be updating with performances as they happen. Among those set to take the stage are Beyonce, Jay Z, Robin Thicke, Pharrell, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and many more. So far, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been dominating the rap-related awards taking home best rap album, best rap song, and best new artist. It's possible he may take home album of the year as well, while Kendrick Lamar remains empty-handed.

    This week the charts remained relatively calm, with no hip-hop new-comers to speak of yet. However, Ty Dolla $ign recently dropped his new Beach House EP, so we'll have to see how well that does sales-wise next week. This past week was Kid Ink's second week on the Billboard 200, and while he wasn't able to maintain a spot within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, he was pretty close, dropping to #21 after a #3 debut. Although Ink is signed to RCA, this is his debut effort and while he's pushing towards the mainstream, he hasn't quite broken down the barrier yet.

    Billboard has released its 2014 "Power 100" list, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Jay Z and Beyonce were given the #1 spot on this list. This comes after the power couple earned the #1 spot of Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list. Obviously money and power are connected.
