Willow Smith reveals the cover art for her highly talked-about single, "Whip My Hair." She recently shot a video for the song with director Ray Kay and will drop by BET's 106 & Park to premiere the clip on October 18th.


Fans will be able to run out and grab Nicki Minaj's highly anticipated debut album, Pink Friday a day earlier than they expected!

Originally slated to release on November 23rd, the animated Young Money signee has moved her album up one day. Pink Friday will hit shelves on Monday, November 22nd, the same day Kanye West's My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy, Akon's Stadium, Jay-Z's The Hits Collection, Vol. 1 and Ne-Yo's Libra Scale.

Seems like that Monday has a lot going on. It'll be interesting to see which album will be flying off the stores' shelves. And even more interesting to see the week after, what the charts and numbers will look like.


After a lot of talking and leaked music, Diddy finally gives his group, Dirty Money an official release date via a press release sent out by Bad Boy/Interscope Records today.

The oft delayed Last Train to Paris is slated to hit stores now on December 14th.

The trio consisting of hip hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, founding Danity Kane member Dawn Richard and singer/songwriter Kalenna Harper are on the promotion trail with their latest single, "Loving You No More," featuring Drake. A video for the track was recently shot in Miami by directed Gil Green and will premiere within the coming weeks. The group will release what seems like will be their fourth single, "Coming Home," in just two weeks.

The album has confirmed features from Grace Jones, Lil' Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Chris Brown, to name a few. It also sports a host of A-list producers, including Danja, Polow Da Don, Sean Garrett, Tricky Stewart, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins and more.

With talk about this going on since 2008, a massive list of heavyweights collaborating and featured on the album, and even a reality show to generate buzz, it's shame that it's taken this long for Last Train to Paris to drop. Let's hope that there is no change of this December 14th release date.
