Beyonce really did shock me with her decision to debut the controversial new track Formation at the 2016 Super Bowl half-time show.
Not only did she perform the politically-charged song, she also had Black Panther imagery going on- with the dancers all dressed in black berets- and the lyrics proudly remained unchanged. Could it be that with her current contract ending, the Diva is finally breaking free and expressing herself more candidly? Or was this a calculated move to get as much publicity for the announcement of the Formation tour that followed quickly after the performance?
Super Bowl finale time, so you know what that means: somebody is getting their chance to impress the nation with that iconic Star Spangled Banner slot. 2016's singer was none other than Mother Monster (does she still call herself that?), Lady Gaga!

Oh America, what have you done to our Jessie J, filling her head with nonsense seems to have warped her mind a little. Speaking to Women’s Health, the Domino singer revealed that y'all have been celebrating her "as one of the greatest singers", and she "loves it". Really?!
Clearly feeling herself- no shame in that- she went on to reveal how she wishes to be remembered as an iconic Divas, saying "I want to be up there with the Celine Dions, Whitneys, Beyonces and Arethas".
I don't know what is happening. Has Beyonce just gone and done another surprise release?! New song Formation (Dirty) has popped into existence on Internet out of nowhere- with a banging and politically charged video, no less- and I don't know what is goin' on!!
Do you!? Currently "unlisted", watch it before it (potentially) disappears!

Oh B, can't you let Rihanna have her shine! Hot on the heels of ANTI's release, Coldplay have let loose the video for their Beyonce-assisted cut, Hymn For The Weekend. And visually speaking, it's a gorgeous slice of Eastern promise.

Rihanna better be getting suitably compensated for being Tidal's guinea pig. The entangling of it and ANTI has been pretty disastrous for the project, consistently messing up its momentum. I say this as someone salty at having to wait to hear her new single, Work. Lord knows I'm not signing up to Tidalwave for it.
Being pushed as the first "real" release from the Diva's new LP, the cut sees her teaming up with dad dancer Drake, as well a producer [Kuk Harrell] of their previous smash collab', What’s My Name. Knowing both these things- pre hearing- had me sweating Rihanna had gone and done a 180 on the initial experimental nature of the project, and was now back chasing hits.
