Nicki Minaj Dismisses Past Songs

There was plenty impactful music discussion at the Pollstar Live Conference which had Irving Azoff and Nicki Minaj as Keynote speakers. Ironically, Nicki Minaj had some things to say about her song catalog. Minaj named Starships, Anaconda, and Your Love as songs she wishes weren’t recorded. Speaking about Anaconda, Nicki says, “I like the video but…,” she said. “My first ever solo song on Billboard was ‘Your Love.’ To this day I like the video but I hate the song. I could go on and on. I hate ...

Louis Tomlinson’s Walls Sadly Stops Short Of A Full-Blown Britpop Revival

Since parting ways, the members of One Direction have all carved out their own place in the pop music firmament. Zayn Malik split before the British boy band's final album, 2015's Made In The A.M., and immediately banished himself to some hyper-sexualized adult contemporary netherworld.

Meghan Trainor's 'Treat Myself' Has Us Questioning How Deep Feminism Runs in the Music Industry

There are some tracks on the album that don't deviate sonically as much as they do lyrically, for instance, Trainor's collaboration with Nicki Minaj on "Nice to Meet Ya", where the tables have turned. A woman is in charge, and a man's professional career is on the line: "If you want it all, it's non-negotiable / So do as I say / If you wanna get the job, you better know who's the boss." Sex as a means of control over musical career direction is nothing new — Iggy Azalea's done it before on he...

Nipsey Hussle 2020 Grammys Tribute Brings Together Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, YG, DJ Khaled, John Legend & Kirk Franklin

Given that the Grammys takes place in Nipsey Hussle’s turf, Los Angeles, it should have been no surprise that a slot was carved out to pay tribute to the late West Coast rapper. Meek Mill, who seemingly has recovered from his near altercation with Nicki Minaj’s husband, opened up the tribute with a heartfelt verse. John Legend banged on the ivory keys and DJ Khaled hollered like he was MCing the baddest party in heaven. Nipsey’s presence, as expected, played out on screen and through a recording...

Billboard change how album sales are counted for merch bundles

Billboard have looked at the way they count album sales and changed the rules for how a sale is counted for merchandise bundles. Merchandise bundles have been causing a bit of a fuss in recent years. People have argued that album sales have been manipulated using merchandise to place artists higher in the charts than they should have been based on people actually buying the album. As the current system stands, it’s possible to throw in an album on the side of a bundle and that will coun...

Nicki Minaj Doesn’t Understand Camp But It’s Not Her Fault

The first Monday in May has come and gone but the internet is still critiquing the outfits our favorite celebrities wore on the Met Gala's pink carpet. While the curators of this year's exhibit arguably ignored black camp and centered whiteness, we were still eager to see what our favorite rappers would wear to honor the theme. Because as Essence magazine editor-in-chief Constance White told Refinery29 earlier this month, rappers love camp. “Rappers are interesting," White said at the time. "I ...
