    Beyonce Posts Snippet Of New Song With Jay Z On Instagram

    Though only a few seconds long, Beyonce's latest vid with Blue Ivy is the best thing we've seen on Instagram in a long time. The clip shows Bey and baby Blue flossing, literally, with matching floss picks and matching stunna shades to boot. And during this priceless moment, a new song plays in the background--a beat that bumps along with a sample of a woman repeating "flossin"--and that certainly sounds like Daddy in the background with the ad-libs.

    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.

    Surely one of the most talked about new stories of the year, the "elevator incident" that occurred between Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange has been met with some skepticism lately, as Bey mentioned it in passing on her recent "Flawless" remix as if it wasn't a big deal. Now Mathew Knowles, the father of Beyoncé and Solange, is also hinting that this event was fabricated in order to boost "On The Run" tour and album sales.

    Iggy Azalea's debut album, The New Classic, was expected to drop this month, but it looks like it will be suffering a pretty major push back. In an interview with Australia's Herald Sun, the rapper revealed that the album won't be out until next year. "The official date? Fucked if I know!” said Iggy in the interview, expressing frustration over the delay. ”It’s done, it’s so depressing to say this but it’s the beginning of March, it’s so far away but I just have to accept that.”

    After slapping the internet in the face with the surprise release of her self titled album, Beyonce has decided to reveal the official singles from the project. The unconventional release strategy, which seems to have played to her favor in terms of sales, also gave Bey the luxury of gauging which tracks were catching on before deciding on a single.

    Well, that's not a headline you read every day. A young man who attended a Jay Z and Beyonce "On The Run" concert on Saturday night left the show with one finger less than he came with. Reports say that Roberto Alcaraz-Garnica, 25-years old, attended the Rose Bowl show and lost a finger when he attempted to grope a concert goer's girlfriend. The boyfriend responded by biting Alcaraz-Garnica's finger off.

    Beyoncé And Rihanna To Team Up For "Blow" Remix?

    Few female duos have the power to shut down the internet like Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj did a few weeks ago when the "Flawless" remix dropped out of nowhere. But of those that could give Minaj a run for her thirst-inducing money, Rihanna is certainly near the top of the list. Could she be next up as Beyoncé gives songs from her self-titled album the remix treatment? Performing rights database ASCAP seems to suggest so.

Apparently, another one of hip-hop's most talented females had a hand in the song's creation. Hit-Boy has just revealed that SZA wrote a part for the track.

    Dr. Dre hasn't come out with any new music in quite a while (although he did co-produce Kendrick Lamar's 2013 Good Kid m.A.A.d. City and had a verse on the hit-song, "The Recipe") but that hasn't stopped him from swimming in cash.

    After sharing a protest song supporting the Freddie Gray rallies in Baltimore, Prince performed a special concert in the city last night. The show was broadcast on TIDAL, while owners Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Alicia Keys were in attendance. Hov and Bey also took the opportunity to meet with Gray's family, taking a few photos with them that showed up online today. It's not clear whether the pictures actually took place at the concert, or elsewhere, but either way, they're worth a look.

    This week we welcome a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, Kid Ink. Kid Ink is a prime example of a rapper who took his internet fame way past the internet. The Alumni rapper is now signed to a major label, and was able to successfully release his debut album My Own Lane-- he actually surpassed the sales projections of 40-45k. Ink sold a respectable 50k, which isn't too shabby for an artist who is not quite mainstream yet, although it's only a matter of time until he gets there.

    Hey, Hip-Hop heads, enthusiasts, casual observers, etc.; ever wonder about the great feuds betwixt R&B legends? If you weren’t, that might be due to the fact that there aren't very many. However, as dedicated to the collection and compilation of all things vaguely urban as we are, we’ve spawned a list with what we’ve found. As R. Kelly once said, "You don't want R&B singers to get into beef; leave that to the rappers."

    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.

    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.

    In the past, "Law & Order: SVU" hasn't been shy about incorporating real life news stories into its fictitious plots, adapting the Chris Brown/Rihanna saga into an episode last year, and it seems like this season will be no different. For a new episode entitled "American Disgrace," the show's writers threw Jay Z, Solange, Ray Rice and Donald Sterling into a blender in order to create the plot.
