Sometimes they rock them so much that they are offered an endorsement deal. Here’s a list of celebs we feel should be called upon by a major brand to strut and show-off in their favorite things.

ScHoolboy Q: Bucket Hats 

After religiously covering his crown with a bucket hat at every occasion, the “Man of the Year” has started a bucket wave. He recently launched a limited edition bucket hat adorned with his old stomping grounds of Figueroa street signs that sold out within days. Q is undoubtedly the face of bucket hats, now he just needs a brand to back him.

Ab-Soul: Eyewear

Though Ab-Soul wears his shaded gazelles for salubrity over style, one can’t help but admire his taste in his specs of choice. Lending his taste to help design his own line of fashionable frames would be a great idea.

Wiz Khalifa: G-Pen

There is no secret that the TGOD captain is an incessant inhaler of the ganja. He has his own strand of marijuana, deemed “Khalifa Kush” but he would surely cash in if he launched his own line of G-Pens for the smokers who prefer the kush vapor.

Wale: Sneakers

It is well-known that Wale is connoisseur of fine kicks but the self-proclaimed sneakerhead has no endorsement deals to his name. A collaboration with Nike is way overdue.

Meek Mill: Watches

The MMG rep has a habit of bragging about his beloved Audemar Piguet watch...a lot. Why not collaborate with them or Rolex and launch a line of your own?

Jhene Aiko: Two Piece Ensembles

All summer the sailing soul has been hitting the stage in matching crop tops and long flowing skirts. If she teamed up with a clothing line and launched her own line of this two piece garbs, bare bellies and revealing leg lines would be inescapable trend.

SZA: Natural Hair Care Products

Who doesn’t want long, thick tresses like TDE’s lone songbird SZA? As the face of an natural hair giant, like Carol’s Daughter or Shea Moisture, consumers will take one look at her voluminous curls and sell out stock.

Ne-Yo: Fedoras

Ne-Yo's fedora swag has always been on-point. Soon after he emerged as R&B’s go to man for hit ballads, he graduated from skullies and fitted caps to the grown and sexy fedoras that have become a fixture in his wardrobe. A match-up with a store like H&M for a line of fedoras would be divine.

Solange: Natural Hair Extensions

Though she has her own natural coils, Solange often rocks an elongated ‘fro to compliment what she already has. Since she does it habitually, having her face attached to a line if natural hair extensions for those lacking in that area wouldn't be a bad idea.

Iggy Azalea: Nail Polish/Nail Art

No matter the occasion, Iggy Azalea’s nails are always a sight to see. The Aussie MC keeps the done up and decorated with abstract patterns or simple sophisticated looks. OPI, Essie or even Sally Hansen should snag her up sooner than later.

Amber Rose: Hair Color

Our favorite baldheaded scallywag (as she calls herself) always keep a fresh paint job on her short cut. Whether blonde or a lime green, Wiz’s wife makes any hair color look smashing. Many blonde baldies would be running the streets if Amber’s face was plastered on a box of her favorite hair dye.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
