Jay-Z Bites Back At Beyonce's 'Lemonade' With Track Of His Own
Jay-Z has finally responded to his wife Beyonce's scathing attack on him via "Lemonade."

One month after setting the Beyhive buzzing, just wondering whom it was she was talking about in her newest tune, Jay-Z responded to his haters in his own way with a tune titled "All the Way Up."

The track also features Fat Joe, Infared, Rema Ma and French Montana.

"All the Way Up" is the only time the music mogul has officially commented on Beyonce's album and allegations regarding his infidelity.

"Lemonade" pulled the covers back on the troubles within the power couple's marriage.

Drake Makes It Three Weeks Atop the Billboard 200

Drake Makes It Three Weeks Atop the Billboard 200
Regardless of the criticism that has greeted Drake’s fourth studio album Views, it continues its stay atop the Billboard 200. In its third week in the penthouse, Views moves another robust total – the tune of 239,000 units. That is less than last week, unsurprising, but the most notable discrepancy this week is between streams plus sales versus pure sales. Only about 35% of the 239,000 units are pure sales (83,000)!

Interestingly, Beyoncé actually sold more albums than Drake, topping the Top Album Sales chart. The top album sales chart was formerly the Billboard 200 before the new SPS form...

Drake Spends A Second Week Atop The Billboard 200

Drake Spends A Second Week Atop The Billboard 200
In a development that’s surprising to no one, after a robust first week, Drake sees his fourth studio album Views remain firmly planted atop the Billboard 200. According to Billboard, Views moved another 219,000 units, with 80% of that total comprised of pure sales. Despite a huge drop in impact between week one and week two, Drake still himself to be the artist to beat this week (more on that later).

Beyoncé’s Lemonade spends a second week behind Drake’s Views in the runner-up slot after debuting at no. 1. While Lemonade’s “sweet” and glorious days atop the Billboard 200 may be done thank...

Drake’s 'Views' Debuts Big Atop Billboard 200

5/10/2016 10:19am EDT
Drake’s 'Views' Debuts Big Atop Billboard 200
Beyoncé’s Lemonade might’ve surprised us more than Drake’s Views where content is concerned, but Drake easily wins the numbers race. That’s right, Drake’s Views starts off platinum, scoring 1.04 million units, easily debuting at no. 1 on the Billboard 200. The 1.04 million units number should come with reservations – Views sold approximately 82% of that total or 852,000 copies. What does that mean? In regards to pure sales, Drake didn’t score a million seller, but he did score the best numbers of his entire career. Clearly, the “6God” doesn’t seem to be fading.

Don’t feel bad for Beyoncé...

Beyoncé Or Drake – Whose Surprise Album Surprised Us More?

5/4/2016 6:20pm EDT
Beyoncé Or Drake – Whose Surprise Album Surprised Us More?
April 2016, to be fair, was somewhat of a lackadaisical month for new music. That is no disrespect to the likes of Deftones (Gore), Lukas Graham (Lukas Graham), or The Lumineers (Cleopatra) who released enjoyable albums, but for much of the month, there was no clear blockbuster. Things changed towards the end of the month, thanks to two surprise albums, courtesy of Beyoncé (Lemonade) and Drake (Views).

Interestingly, both Beyoncé and Drake aren’t new to “shocking the world” and releasing surprise albums. Beyoncé did so flawlessly in December 2013 when she “changed the game” by dropping vis...

This first week in May has some big names dropping new albums, including two country artists, the resurrected solo career of pop singer/songwriter/producer, and the physical availability of a queen’s epic sixth album. Here are nine albums to check out this week!

Beyonce And Alleged 'Becky' Rita Ora Pose For Selfie Together At
Looks like we can finally put those 'Becky' rumors about Rita Ora to rest.

People has the report that Ora and Beyonce posed for a selfie together while attending the 2016 Met Gala in New York City. Ora shared the pic on her Snapchat and captioned the photo with the word "Family" and a heart emoji.

Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Tops Billboard

Beyoncé Takes 'Lemonade' To No. 1 On The Billboard 200
“Hold up” – who’s no. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the sixth time? That would be none other than the Queen herself, Beyoncé! Yes, for the sixth time in her career, Queen Bey has slain the competition and taken Lemonade to no. 1. While Lemonade’s pure sales don’t eclipse the sales of Beyoncé’s first surprise album, Beyoncé, the 653,000 units are exceptional. Take the streams out of the equation and 485,000 copies in pure sales (roughly 74%) aren't shabby in the least.

Beyoncé wasn’t the only newbie to march in “Formation” on the Billboard 200 this week. A$AP Ferg takes his sophomore album, A...

Beyoncé Sounds Fearless And Unapologetic On 'Lemonade'
The surprise unannounced album has become unsurprising in 2016. Yes, it’s technically still surprising when any superstar releases a new album, but not nearly as unexpected as it once was. After shocking the world with Beyoncé back in December 2013, another surprise album from Beyoncé was inevitable. This time, it comes in the form of Lemonade, initially streaming only via Tidal. One thing about Lemonade is for sure – it’s not sour in the least!

Lemonade is clearly Beyoncé at her most experimental – call this her ‘Anti’ album to say the least (shout out to Rihanna). “Pray You Catch Me” is ...

Beyonce Played Part In Determining NFL Schedule

4/15/2016 11:07pm EDT
Beyonce played a big part in determining the NFL's schedule.

The league game schedule was released a little earlier than usual.

Why? Well, Beyonce.

In part because the league wanted to give teams a chance to add those extra Queen Bey dates in their stadiums -- was No. 43,066 spit out by the league's computers. It hung on the wall as the leader in the clubhouse for eight days, the favorite because, among other things, there were no dud weeks for television, just two teams (Washington and Green Bay) were stuck with three-game road stretches and only one (the Giants) has to play a road ...

Beyonce Files Lawsuit Against 'Feyonce'
Beyonce has filed a lawsuit against a company that she feels has been capitalizing on her name and her fame to sell their products. According to Vogue UK, Beyonce isn't too thrilled that "Feyonce" is making a profit selling T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and other items with the word "Feyonce" on them -- which is a play on the word "fiance" as well as a play on the Formation singer's name.

The company also uses one-liners from Beyonce's song, Single Ladies.

Beyonce Canada Ban: Official Pushes For 'Formation' Singer To Be

Reportedly, if one Canadian official gets his way, Beyonce Knowles won't have a stopover in Canada for her upcoming World Tour -- or ever again.

Are Musical Acts Not Paid For Super Bowl Appearances?

Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Coldplay Not Paid For Super Bowl 50 Appeara
Could it be true that Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Coldplay were not paid for their Super Bowl 50 appearances for the Pepsi Halftime Spectacular?

Yes, as the exposure given to the artists for their time on stage during the big game far outweighs what they could ever be paid for the performance.

As has always been the case, none of the artists that perform at the Super Bowl are ever paid.

According to Forbes, the increase in attention, social media mentions, larger fan bases and music sales are what push the entertainers over the edge more than a paycheck for the evening could.

From the looks of it, Coldplay is getting the cold shoulder.

The British group, featuring frontman, Chris Martin, released its music video on Friday. "Hymn for the Weekend" is the second single off the band's A Head Full of Dreams album.

Oddly, even with the assemblage of music and Bollywood -- and two hot divas -- some detractors on Twitter found varying reasons to slam the video. Many commenters upset over Coldplay's video accuse the band, dire...

Beyonce May Be A Tiny Bit Jealous Of This Famous British Singer

1/7/2016 9:16am EST
It was an incredible year for British singer Adele, who landed the top selling album of 2015. But not everyone is thrilled with her success. According to In Touch, Beyonce, who hasn't released an album since 2013, is a bit envious of the competition.

An insider told the magazine (via OK!): "Beyonce wanted to release music in December, but she knew it simply couldn't compare to Adele. She is beyond jealous."

Adele, whose album "25" dropped on Nov. 29, crushed sales of Taylor Swift's hugely successful "1989." Adele sold 8.01 million units (physical CDs and the streaming equivalent) compared...
