Celebs We Want to Go On Tour Together

Joint tours are the ultimate treat to the fans because we get to have our faves all on one stage. With Trey Songz and his bestie Chris Brown going on tour together, we started thinking about who else should touch down a few cities together. Here’s some stars we'd love to see hit the road together.

Rihanna & Ciara

The don’t like each other but if they went on tour, they could make up for what the other lacks. Ciara commands the stage with her dynamic choreography and overall performance quality, but her lack of a colossal hit is where RiRi comes in.

K. Michelle & Keyshia Cole

This songbirds have catalogs equipped to get any Vixen through a lovesick time.  Seeing them on tour would give us flashbacks of bad breakups as we sing along to their heartbreak anthems. However, with their rap sheet when it comes to friendships, they may end up beefing before the tour is over. 

Missy Elliott & Pharrell

Pharrell and Missy have been putting on for their city when it comes to VA reps. Pharrell has been having a big year, racking up Oscar and Grammy nominations while Missy is hiding from the spotlight. A tour that'll have Missy's antics on stage and having a set full of Pharrell’s hits from the past 15 years would be a must-see.

Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora

By the looks of the success of their collabo “Black Widow,” putting Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora together seems to work well. “Black Widow” has become Iggy’s third top ten hit and is taking mainstream radio by storm. On stage, the Aussie femcee and the UK songstress seem to have great chemistry. Let’s put that chemistry on an international test.

Brandy & Monica

Brandy and Monica commanded the 90s and early 2000s with their mega hits, like their inaugural Grammy-winning collaboration, “Boy Is Mine." Putting these two together on tour would give us that yearning 90s nostalgia all over again.

Mary J. Blige & Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine is obviously a soul descendant of MJB. Their voices are full of soul, edge and their songs represent the struggle when it comes to love. These tickets would surely sell out.

Drake and The Weeknd

Drake and The Weeknd

Would we like a tour?  Why, yes we would! When these two Canadians come together on a track it turns into gold. Since The Weeknd has been said to be the alter ego of Drake’s rap persona these two should take their  Toronto sounds on the road.

T.I and Young Jeezy

T.I and Young Jeezy

T.I may hold the throne as the King of Atlanta but Young Jeezy is definitely a part of his reigning party.  Jeezy may have some restrictions as to where he can go right now due to yet another run in with the law (which I’m sure Tip can understand) but once he’s clear, that tour should be set for take off.

august alsina and chris brown

August Alsina and Chris Brown

In R&B, August Alsina and Chris Brown can be seen as the bad boys. They get themselves into trouble but you can’t help but love them for their stellar vocals and boyish good looks. Putting these two together might result in some mischief but would be vocally and (visually) appealing.

jhene aiko and mila j

Jhene Aiko and Mila J

Though they are sisters, they give off two totally different vibes. While Jhene gives us a hippie aura her big sis Mila J gives more of a hip hop feel, polishing it off with a tomboy look combined with sex appeal.

j.cole and kendrick lamar

J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar

There were once talks of an album between the two but we have yet to see that happen. To hold us over until the wordsmiths hop in the studio together, the two lyrically inclined MCs should embark on the tour to satisfy the the J. Cole enthusiasts and TDE stans alike.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

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.
