New Video from Rihanna – Cheers

Rihanna has recently premiered the music video for her latest single “Cheers”. During her tour stop in Kensington Oval, Barbados on August 5, the 23-year old R&B singer filmed footage for this video. The visual features a lot of concert and backstage shots from her “Loud” tour, as well as a special appearance by Avril Lavigne. It’s a simple nod to Rihanna sampling the Canadian pop star’s hit “I’m With You” in the song. Also making brief appearances in the video are Cee-Lo Green, Kanye West and Jay-Z. In other Rihanna news, she just wrapped up the European leg of her tour and is prepping to kick it off in South America on September 17.

Rihanna Sex Tape

Rumors surfaced earlier this week that Hustler had acquired a sex tape featuring J Cole and Rihanna. It didn’t take long for the Barbadian R&B singer to deny the whole thing, taking to Twitter to say “We don’t believe U, U need more people…AND ofcourse an actual sextape! #slownewsday” At least she’s got a good sense of humor about the whole thing. She’s right though. Unless Hustler comes up with some proof that they do have a sex tape, it’s nothing but silly rumors spreading to have the media go crazy. What do you think? Do you think a Rihanna and J Cole sex tape exists?

Kanye West and Jay-Z Perform at VMAs

In a surprise performance, Jay-Z and Kanye West took to the stage at the 2011 MTV VMAs at Nokia Theatre LA Live in Los Angeles this past Sunday to perform their song “Otis”. Do I even have to say how amazing this performance is? The mere fact that you have these two hip hop moguls collaborating and then seeing them perform live is just surreal. It’s like a clash of the titans but in a really good way. These two have really revived my interest in hip hop, which is funny since I’m really not their biggest fans when they’re on their own. But together, they are magic.

DMX Arrested for Speeding

DMX was just released from jail last month and after his statements on how jail has changed him, I had some hope that he was planning to stay out of trouble. That was all dashed when the rapper was arrested again this week in Phoenix. The Arizona Highway patrol pulled DMX over after he clocked going 102 mph on the radar. He was placed under arrest for criminal speed, driving on a suspended and revoked license, and reckless driving. He was released the morning after his arrest on a bond. It looks like some people just don’t learn. I smell a probation violation.

Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to Preview Video at VMAs Pre-Show

Selena Gomez will be hosting this year’s VMA pre-show. During which, Nicki Minaj will show the world a special preview of the music video for “Fly”, her collaboration with Rihanna. In January, we got to see a teaser picture of the video shoot via the Barbadian R&B singer’s Twitter but it was the rapper’s “Super Bass” visual that ended up being dropped first. Now, it seems that “Fly” is coming right up. I’m sure the first look into the video will only add to the big night that Nicki will have as she’s nominated for three VMAs including Best Rap Video.

New from David Guetta and Jennifer Hudson – Night of Your Life

Jennifer Hudson takes a chance by stepping into the dance music realm with a new track called “Night of Your Life”, which is featured on David Guetta’s 2011 studio album “Nothing but the Beat”. This marks the R&B singer’s first attempt at a commercial and current music-style, and she delivered flawlessly. While I don’t see Jennifer recording a dance album any time soon, it’s refreshing to see her step out of her comfort zone. It’s a killer track and if I were David, I’d release this as a single. The beats are awesome and Jennifer’s vocals are fire. Some may say that it sounds like Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In the World)” but I see nothing wrong with it.

New Video from Eminem – Lighters

The hip hop duo Bad Meets Evil, comprised of rappers Eminem and Royce da 5’9, has premiered the music video for their latest single “Lighters” via VEVO. The Bruno Mars-assisted track is pretty hot on the charts right now, staying within the Top 10 on US iTunes and has peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Hot 100. As for the video, I liked it. It’s pretty basic and nothing to be all excited about. I loved the ending with all the lights in the air though. But honestly, this was underwhelming considering the beautiful message of this song. It definitely could have been better.

New Video from Lil Wayne – How to Love

Lil Wayne recently premiered the music video for “How to Love” exclusively via MTV Jams as “Jam of the Week”. With the song currently sitting at the #6 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100, this video premiere and the upcoming VMA performance, the rapper may be in the fight for the top spot very soon. As for the video, I did not expect it at all. It’s a strong and powerful visual that’s very touching. It’s about a woman who goes through a difficult life, from working as a stripper to prostitution to contracting HIV. It’s just awe-inspiring. I give mad props to whoever came up with the concept.
