15 Albums We'd Like to Drop in 2015

There's no better feeling than learning that your favorite artist is dropping some new heat for you to listen to. The year 2014 has brought us some quality works of art from some of the greats. Recently Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko and Jeezy have been spearheading the fall line up, but we are still awaiting the season finales like Joey Badass, Vince Staples and Luke James.

Although it would be nice if some of these creatives could make an album every year, but for the sake of the artistry it's probably best that they pace themselves and take their time on each project. Success certainly doesn't happen overnight.With the new year slowly, but surely approaching, we can't help but wonder who will drop their album in 2015. There is definitely speculation of who may put out a project, but nothing has been confirmed. Here's Vixen's choice of albums we'd like to see released  next year.

K.Dot blessed us with good kid, m.A.A.d city in 2012 and we've been patiently waiting for more ever since.

J.Cole

We are definitely hoping for another Cole summer real soon. Although Born Sinner was just last year, Cole fans know that that's still a year too many.

Rita Ora

Her album was supposed to be released this year, but it was pushed back. We're ready Roc Nation.

Nas 5

Nas 

We are well aware that Nas will forever be cooking some fire up in the studio. Although his last album was Life is Good in 2012, he can't stay away from hip hop and he has yet to publicly speak about retiring.

October's Very Own won't be having an album of his own this October, but we hope that he's working on one for 2015.

Rihanna x Wang

Rihanna

Of all the news that we've heard of Rihanna, we have yet to hear some news of an album. Perhaps she's developing something right now.

Kanye West

Although Yeezus has a lot going on with his Adidas collaboration and fatherhood, we'd sure like to hear some 2015 bangers from the iconic rap genius.

Lil B 

He's always cooking up something strange and new for his fans. The 101-song mixtape was awesome and we can't wait to see what he has in store next.

Erykah Badu

She's still making music, touring and performing, so it'd be nice if we could hear some of her exclusive stuff. She definitely has an in-house studio, so come back to the mainstream for a little, Ms. Badu!

We were blown away by the eccentricity of Electric Lady in 2013 and we're ready for more from this eclectic beauty.

Pretty much everyone in TDE had a new project, so Jay Rock has to be next.

His project Crenshaw—which was a $100 mixtape—was a genius marketing move that got him a lot of attention. Can't wait to see how much he's charging for his next album.

There is speculation of her album dropping in October and we hope that this is true. If not, we would definitely like to hear it by the new year.

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
