Jeremih Dropped From "Summer's Over" Tour With PARTYNEXTDOOR
Jeremih has been dropped from the Summer's Over tour with PARTYNEXTDOOR, according to a Live Nation statement to Pitchfork. The decision to remove the Chicago singer from the bill is due to "multiple incidents" that left the entertainment company "no other choice."
Jeremih Disses PARTYNEXTDOOR On Stage In Dallas
Jeremih was all over the news yesterday after fans & reports surfaced online that he had put out a stunt-double to perform his show in Houston Thursday night, and now not even 24 hours later he’s back calling out OVO crooner & fellow touring partner PARTYNEXTDOOR on stage.
Fans Think Jeremih Got A Body Double To Perform For Him After Tensions With PND
Approaching the year's end, artists are having a tough time on the road. It all started with Kanye West's troubling onstage rants over the course of a few "Saint Pablo" shows. He aborted a show in Sacramento after particularly frantic speech regarding his frayed relationship with Jay Z and Beyonce, and within the next two days, the entire tour was cancelled and he was admitted to the hospital for an exhaustion-induced state of psychosis.
PartyNextDoor Wants To Produce As Much For Drake As Kanye West Did For Jay Z
In his first Canadian interview ever, PartyNextDoor opened up to NOW Magazine, a local Toronto publication, about his dreams for the future as the premier artist on OVO Sound. Here's what the usually tight-lipped artist said about his aspirations with Drake: "I competitively want to produce just as many records for Drake as Kanye West did for Jay Z ... I want to write just as much as Kanye may have for whomever Kanye has written for. I want to do as much as I can do while I'm young." PND went on to explain his longtime admiration for Kanye West:
Donald Trump Calls New York Times "Not Nice" And Nearly Cancels Their Meeting
President-Elect is a sensitive guy, and if you act rudely toward him, he'll start looking for revenge. One institution Trump has consistently feuded with this election is the New York Times, consistent critics of the Donald. Early this morning, Trump announced that he was cancelling his meeting with the "failing" NY Times because they were changing the conditions of their meet-up, and because they were "not nice." He went on to say that the newspaper covers him with a "nasty tone," and that complaints against the NY Times were at an all-time high. Harsh, but probably accurate.
PartyNextDoor On Co-Writing Rihanna's "Work" & "Sex With Me": "It's Easier To Write For Other People"
PartyNextDoor just kicked off his tour with Jeremih, and with the new set of dates comes a new interview with the Toronto singer. PND has been known to be fairly reclusive, and as a result his interviews are few and far between, so this Power 98 conversation is one to be cherished. PND has been hinting at a joint project with his tour partner, Jeremih, but when asked whether the two were working on music, he was fairly tight lipped, "Something like that," he said with a grin.
10 Rappers' Myspace Pages Before The Fame
If you were in your teens between the years 2003 and 2009, having a Myspace was a must. The predecessor to Facebook was a major step up from instant messaging platforms like AIM, the only form of social network any of us really had until the mid-2000s, and it also had a big impact on the music industry. For the first time, undiscovered artists had a means of sharing their music with millions of people across the globe (YouTube would come into the picture two years later), and the personal touch of a Myspace page gave eventual fans something more to latch onto.
Travis Scott Releases "Days Before Birds" Album
We've received a couple of album surprises today. Gucci Mane decided to let fans hear Woptober three days ahead of every Brick Squad fan's favorite day, 10/17, while duo Anderson .Paak and Knwxledge aka NoWxrries, dropped their album Yes Lawd! a week early.
New PartyNextDoor Music Previewed On Model Chantel Jeffries' Snapchat
PartyNextDoor may have just dropped his highly anticipated PartyNextDoor 3 album in August, but it seems he has some more new music on the way. XXL points out that model and DJ Chantel Jeffries (who you may know from dating Justin Bieber or contributing vocals to Travis Scott's "90210") has previewed a new track with Party on vocals via her SnapChat.
PARTYNEXTDOOR & Jeremih Announce "Summer's Over" Tour Dates
In June of this year, two r'n'b singers, Jeremih and PartyNextDoor, revealed they've been working on a joint album. The project is set to be titled Late Night Party, however since the announcement a few months back, we haven't received an update or any music from the two, for that matter.
Top Tracks: September 12 - September 18
Summer '16 seemed to come and go without a good, entertaining beef, but in the week before the official Fall equinox, one has emerged. You could definitely deem the new Meek Mill Vs. The Game beef as a spinoff of Meek and Drake's last summer, but when it comes to bars, this beef's picking up the long-dormant one's slack. We've already got a diss apiece from both parities involved, and although Meek's came in too late on Sunday night to be counted in Top Tracks this week, Game's is in here, and you can be sure Meek's will be next week.
Top Tracks: September 5 - September 11
We finally got to breathe a sigh of relief last week after the absolute onslaught of must-listen projects that arrived in the month prior. This calm will be short-lived, though, as we get Mac Miller's The Divine Feminine on Friday, Ty Dolla $ign's Campaign and Mick Jenkins' The Healing Component just a week later, Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition on the 30, and The Game's 1992 to kick off October.
Vote: Who Released The Best OVO Album Of 2016?
From February to August 2016, OVO Sound released five albums -- one from each artist on their roster. (Unless you're counting OB O'Brien.) In the case of the albums released label's two most popular artists, Drake and PartyNextDoor, public reception varied widely. Albums released by the label's three newer artists, Majid Jordan, dvsn, and Roy Woods, were significantly less polarizing. Here are the five albums OVO has released in 2016:
Vote: Who Had The Best Project Of August 2016?
Summer is fast turning to autumn, vacation to school. Soon, the sun's oppressive reign will end and give way to increasingly temperate conditions. With August in the books, we look back at ten of the most notable hip hop and R&B albums and mixtapes of the month and ask our readers to decide which one they believe is the best. Pour one out for Noname's Telefone, which came out on July 31. Here are the ten:
The Best Hip Hop Songs (On Spotify) Of August 2016
Earlier this year, HNHH launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now. The playlist is updated on a daily basis. It lives on Spotify and thus is inherently imperfect, because not all super-hot hip hop songs have been added to Spotify. Still, the playlist is generally representative of the best new releases in hip hop and R&B.
Charts Don't Lie: August 24
There's some new talent in the Billboard 200 this week, with PARTYNEXTDOOR, Rae Sremmurd, and Atmosphere all holding it down with debuts in the top 25.
First Week Sales For PartyNextDoor's "P3" & Rae Sremmurd's "SremmLife 2"
PartyNextDoor's album P3 was given a lukewam reception from fans but it enjoyed a successful first week of sales.
PartyNextDoor's "PartyNextDoor 3 (P3)" (Review)
Whether you like him or not, Drake and his music has had a distinct sound, feel, vibe or lane, whatever you want to call it. And when an artist who sound like him emerges (e.g. Kirko Bangz, Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller), instantly Drake becomes measured against them as some sort of standard. People anticipate cosigns, bring up Drake as the gold standard that an artist has to equal or rival, or just badger them with derision for copying a previously established blueprint.
First Week Sales Projections For "PartyNextDoor 3" & "Sremmlife 2"
Drake’s Views has been having quite the run at the #1 spot in album sales department since it was released back in April, but could either of last week’s PartyNextDoor 3 or Sremmlife 2 finally dethrone it? Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it.
PartyNextDoor On Kehlani: "I Regret How It Went Down"
PartyNextDoor released P3 at the end of last week, with the album stream quickly toppling over 70,000 views on our site alone. We don't yet know what kind of damage it'll do on the charts, but the hype surrounding the OVO-signed singer is definitely coming to a head. With the album doing it's thing, Rolling Stone caught up with PND for a quick interview on the ups and downs (more downs, it sounds like) of his past year. This includes everything from a short-lived relationship with Kehlani to writing RiRi's biggest ANTI hit.
