Drake Makes It Three Weeks Atop the Billboard 200

5/24/2016 8:35am EDT
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...

Is Rihanna Trying To Get With A Married NBA Superstar?

Rihanna Secretly Dating LeBron James?
Is Rihanna letting LeBron James know she wants him?

It seems so, Rihanna posted a very sexually suggestive message to the basketball player on her Instagram page. It definitely makes it seems like she and the King have a little something going on.

The singer wrote the number "23" in sunscreen on her stomach. 23 is the number on the back of the Cleveland Cavalier's jersey.

Rihanna captioned the photo "mood" in probably the most sexual hint ever.

Sure, "23" could mean anything... if she didn't tag him in the photo.

Johnny Manziel Gets Dumped By Drake?

5/22/2016 4:08pm EDT
Has Johnny Manziel Been Kicked Out Of Drake's Inner Circle?
Johnny Manziel reportedly got into it with another patron at Jewel Nightclub at the Aria resort in Las Vegas.

Did the fight also signal the end of his friendship with Drake?

Just a couple of weeks ago, Manziel promoted Drake's new album "Views from the Six" on Instagram. The quarterback's relationship with Drake goes back several years. Manziel's still regularly spotted with Drake's friend Ryan. But, the rapper seems to be drifting further and further away. Now, it seems the six god doesn't care if Manziel's even allowed in the club with him.

From TMZ:

Johnny Manziel was removed from...

Drake Spends A Second Week Atop The Billboard 200

5/17/2016 9:17am EDT
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...

Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Tops Billboard

5/3/2016 9:41am EDT
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...

Does Drake’s Highly Anticipated Fourth Studio Album 'Views' Hit The Mark?

Drake’s Highly Anticipated Fourth Studio Album 'Views' Maintains
Any time that Drake releases an album (or a mixtape, like 2015’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late), it’s kind of a big deal. Drake’s fourth studio album Views, hence, is “kind of a big deal.” It was rumored that Views, originally called Views From The 6, would drop sometimes in the early part of 2016, with the April 29 date becoming the reality. Now that Drake has released his highly anticipated sophomore LP, how does it stack up? While there are some new tricks, much of Views is familiar and doesn’t depart from Drizzy’s script, which is mostly “blessing” but perhaps a little bit of “cu...

Do The Warriors Really Practice At Drake's House?

Drake, Stephen Curry
Stephen Curry confirmed to TSN’s Cabral Richards that he does play basketball at Drake's house.

Rapper Drake claims in his new song "Summer Sixteen," that the Golden State Warriors are "running practice at my house."

It turns out, the lyric isn't completely true. The Golden State practice facility is still getting lots of use. However, Curry "comes and hoops at the house." Curry has played basketball against his wife's brother Jaz Alexander at Drake's Hidden Hills estate.

That’s got some real-life aspect to it,” Curry told Richards. “Me and my brother-in-law, I was playing 1-on-1 wit...

Odell Beckham Jr. Is Drake's Roommate

Odell Beckham Jr. recently sat down with Ronda Rousey in an interview for Draft Kings.

Beckham talked about topics like his Madden 16 cover, his nude pictures for the ESPN Body Issue, and his friendship with rapper Drake, who is now also his new roommate.

Beckham has been working out and living at Drake's Hidden Hills home while Drake records and finishes his new album, Views From the 6.

“That’s my guy right there,” Beckham said when Rousey showed him a photo of him and Drake at the Houston Appreciation Weekend celebrity softball game last year. “That was the first time we really hung ...

It looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving has been cheated on by his girlfriend of several months.

The way news surfaced was really unfortunate for Irving. OVO artist and close friend of Drake, PartyNextDoor, posted a photo of he and Kehlani in bed on Instagram. He deleted the post soon after but it had already spread online for everybody to see.

10 Songs About Diamonds From The 10s
The famous lyrics ring true: “diamonds are forever.” Well, arguably the saying “diamonds are forever” may be an exaggeration, but the song title perfectly ties in with this list of shining stars, err, shining gems – DIAMONDS! Yes, we have an epic (okay semi-epic) list featuring 10 songs about diamonds from the 10s – 2010s that is! There’s a little bit of everything – pop, rap, post-hardcore (!) and country among others. Maybe the diamonds aren’t eternal and maybe some of these songs are merely average at best, but there’s a “gem” or two sure to make your personal playlist…maybe!

Spurs' Gregg Popovich Lies About Being Friends With Drake
The NBA All-Star Game is in Toronto so it's almost a tribute to six god rapper, Drake. He's coaching and partying. He's being an ambassador, host, and attendee. Basically, Drake's the center of attention. He even received the key to the city from Mayor John Tory.

Gregg Popovich is coaching the Western Conference team on Sunday. He is famously horrible with media but he has been great with the media so far in Toronto. When asked if Drake would outcoach him in the Celebrity All-Star Game, Pop replied, "Drake and I are tight. We won't compete against each other too much."

TMZ has found Johnny Manziel after an exhaustive search. The soon-to-be former Cleveland Brown was spotted in Dallas with Drake's OVO crew member, Ryan Silverstein and Chandler Parsons of the Dallas Mavericks. Drake was not with the friend group. However, his fellow Canadian, Tyler Seguin was.

Toronto Raptors Show Drake Major Loyalty

1/15/2016 6:27pm EST
The Toronto Raptors do not love them some Meek Mill. In fact, they have banned his music because of his rivalry with Drake.

The Raptors' James Johnson and Patrick Patterson spoke with Complex Sports about the team's love for the Toronto-born rapper when the team was in London, England for an NBA global game.

It looks like if you are Drake's enemy, you are the Raptors' enemy too.

Have you had to put a ban on Meek Mill?
Patrick Patterson: Oh yeah, Meek Mill has been banned for a long time. No one plays Meek Mill.

Ouch. Sorry, Meek Mill. At least, Nicki Minaj still likes you.

Drake Causes Kentucky Wildcats An NCAA Violation
The Kentucky Wildcats have self-reported a minor NCAA violation involving Drake.

UK reported to the NCAA a “Level III violation” on October 19, 2015. A level III violation is not considered serious. In this case, it involved “preferential treatment” after a Drake concert in Chicago.

According to the report, a member of Drake's team recognized Wildcat guard Tyler Ulis and invited him to meet with the rapper. Drake and the player spent three or four minutes together. The Ulis and Drake posed for a photo during that time. Later in the night, Ulis posted a picture of himself with Drake.

It's On! Meek Mill Disses Drake Again!
Is the long-buried feud between rappers Meek Mill and Drake being reignited once again?

This is Mill's first piece of new music since he attacked Drake in a tune over the summer.

E! News reported that a new bit from the upcoming album was released and yet again, Mill is taking shots at his purported enemy.

The music was posted by Complex Magazine.

40 Best Songs Of 2015

40 Best Songs Of 2015
It’s a tall task to pick the best albums in any given year, specifically when it comes to ranking them. Even more difficult is selecting the best songs as the music industry is much more record/song-centric than it was once was. Even when albums (exception: Adele’s 25) don’t sell, songs do. There were lots and lots of notable songs from 2015, so narrowing the list to 40 is an arduous task. As arduous as it was, here’s our best shot – 40 of the Best Songs of 2015.

Once every year the Toronto Raptors honor their fearless leader, Drake, with his own night.

Selena Gomez Fends Off The Game For Top Spot

10/20/2015 10:19am EDT
Selena Gomez Takes ‘Revival’ To No. 1 On The Billboard 200
Selena Gomez did it once again – debut in the number one spot on the Billboard 200. Enough folks were ‘revived’ by Gomez’s Revival to propel the pop artist’s fifth album overall (second solo album) to the penthouse. Overall, Revival impacted to the tune of 117,000 units, which is respectable. That said, only about 73% of that total (85,000 copies) is sales excluding streaming and tracks. Previous album Stars Dance was a stronger seller.

Even with Gomez padding her totals with streaming and tracks, Gomez would’ve still edged the other frontrunner for the top spot, The Game. The Game still...

Drake And Serena Engaged? We Got The Latest Scoop

10/9/2015 9:14am EDT
Verdict From Drake And Serena About Engagement, Marriage Rumors:
Unless you've been too busy waiting for the world to end, the news that Drake proposed to Serena Williams probably slipped by you. Yea, it's like that; Drizzy supposedly popped the question to the world's No.1 women's singles tennis player, and she said "yes!" Both were tight-lipped about the latest rumors, and Twitter went bonkers over this Drake and Serena engagement thing. But according to the rapper's camp, it didn't go down like that.

We know Drake started from the bottom, now he's here, but what we didn't know (more on that later) is if the engagement buzz is 100. However, according ...

Music fans are buzzing this week about a new track that features two of the biggest music stars in the world.

Canadian rapper Drake recently released a new song called "Can I" that features Beyonce as his backup singer. Drake dropped the track as part of his OVO Sound Radio show on Apple's Beats 1 radio station.

The track is the second collaboration between the two artists. In 2013, Drake made an appearance on Beyonce's "Mine." a song on her self-titled album that she surprise-released on Apple's iTunes.

Speaking of Apple, some industry observers are raising their eyebrows at the fact...
