    We didn't get a new Drake project yesterday, but we pretty much got the next best thing. During OVO Sound's debut Beats 1 radio show, Champagne Papi premiered three new songs (most of them remixes) amidst sets by Oliver El Khatib and Eric Dingus. After the dust settled on all of that, though, we got something a little more cryptic with the potential to be even more exciting. Out of nowhere, a date (September 24) appeared on OVO's website without any explanation.

    It'll be almost exactly two years since the release of Kiss Land when The Weeknd's second proper studio album, Beauty Behind The Madness, hits stores, and much has changed in the world of Abel Tesfaye. A collaboration with Ariana Grande, and the Michael Jackson-channeling "I Can't Feel My Face" have found the singer approaching traditional pop songwriting with the help of Max Martin, and proved him capable of playing the charismatic frontman role as well as the disconnected R&B outsider he introduced himself as.

    A couple of days ago, we pitted dueling streaming services TIDAL and Apple Music against each other in a "Game of Thrones," trying to predict which service would win out for dominance of the market (For the record, 81% of you said you'd go with Apple).

    It all seemed like fantastic, luxurious, one-percent-y fun and games during the initial TIDAL press conference. Music mogul Sean “Jay-Z” Carter’s launched his rebranding of the year-old streaming service he had recently acquired by strutting out stars of meteoric magnitude, both young and old, shuffled out like battling champions in a proverbial game of thrones. Like a "Song of Ice and Fire," the words burned like an effigy as the music industry (critics, artists, and fans alike) were urged to brace themselves for something new.

    The only true debut in this week's charts came from King Los' God Money War. While the pre-cursor to Los' upcoming official debut managed to move 7,357 units (8,331 with streams), it only came in at number 67. Another notable debut was Tyga's Gold Album, though it actually failed to crack the Billboard 200. Released on Spotify on a Tuesday and later as an iTunes Download on a Friday, T-Raww's new album had a near full-week of streams and a few days of purchases to accumulate under 5,000 sales.

    What are the necessary ingredients to a great hip hop show? Well, there's a crowd, a good sound system, a capable DJ, a charismatic performer and lights, but then there are the factors that go largely unseen by attendees. These luxuries demanded by performers are listed on pieces of paper commonly called riders, and every so often, one will get leaked out to the public, usually resulting in shock and scoffing.

    While next week should be more exciting, the last round of rap sales were pretty lacklustre. With ASAP Rocky's album dropping to number 12, it's the first week in some time with no hip hop or R&B in the top ten. The LPs we've seen selling all year are still hanging in, with Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Kendrick Lamar all continuing to sell. Meanwhile, J. Cole has jumped up a few spots, showing that his LP, though released last year, still has some life left in it.Check out the full breakdown below.

    It's been rumored for a while that Drake and Pharrell would be contributing to Apple Music in one way or another, and the popular theory was that the artists would be contributing to a radio service provided by the company. This has all truned out to be true, as Zane Lowe (who made his way from BBC1, and will also host his own show) has revealed that Drake, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Elton John, Disclosure and the one and only Jaden Smith will all have their own programs through Beats 1 Radio.
