The Weekend Announces Sophomore Album Title And Release Date

The "Earned It" singer's sophomore LP will debut late summer...

OVO's favorite wild-haired R&B crooner took to Twitter Thursday (July 9) to reveal the title of his sophomore project, Beauty Behind the Madness.

The highly-anticipated LP has 14 tracks with no features announced just yet. The album, which is the Canadian artist's follow-up to his debut Kiss Land, includes singles "Often," "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face." Fans quickly nabbed a screenshot of the album on iTunes for pre-order.

The other tracks are so far unnamed, but fans can still pre-order in select international locations. In the U.S., purchase for the three singles are available, but not the full album just yet.

Beauty Behind The Madness is set to drop Aug. 28. Until then, spin The Weeknd's newest single "Can't Feel My Face"

Boosie Badazz Claims He Was Kicked Out Of Planet Fitness Gym Over Dwyane Wade Rant

Boosie Badazz may have to find a new place to workout and record Instagram videos. The rapper says he’s being discriminated against by Planet Fitness for recording a rant about Dwyane Wade’s trans daughter from inside the gym.

Boosie claims that a gay gym manager wouldn't allow him to enter a Planet Fitness in McDonough, Ga., “Because of my past actions on social media about gender, etc,” he captioned an Instagram post on Thursday (Feb. 20)

Boosie urged his 6.9 million Instagram followers not to support the company because “they racist and they have roaches” and the “shower don’t get hot.”

“Do not go to Planet Fitness they racist, they haters. They just put me out because of what I said about Dwyane Wade’s son,” he claimed in a video recorded from his car while leaving the gym parking lot.

He also says the gym accused him of using a gay slur against an employee.

Watch Boosie’s full video below.

Lil Kim Is Officially Performing At Lovers & Friends Festival

It looks like Lil Kim will indeed be performing at the first ever Lovers & Friends Festival. After some confusion over whether or not she was actually on the lineup, Kimmy Blanco confirmed that “the check has cleared” and she’s looking forward to the show.

The Queen Bee shouted out Snoop Dogg, who is one of the festival promoters, for working out the money issue. “Thank Uncle @SnoopDogg guys cause if it wasn’t for him this would not be happening,” she tweeted on Wednesday (Feb. 19). “But ya’ll know how much I love Cali and Uncle Snoop.”

After Kim, Mase and Twista initially denied involvement in the festival, fans were worried that the event could turn into another Fyre Fest fiasco. According to Rolling Stone, promoters were scrambling to get things in order and subsequently blindsided some of the artists by  announcing the lineup before all of contracts were signed and payments were made. Co-promoter Bobby Dee of Bobby Dee Present blamed the confusion of communication breakdowns but assured that “everybody’s happy” and the show will go on.

The one-day Lovers & Friends Festival goes down on May 9 in Carson, Calif. Tickets go on sale on Friday (Feb. 21).

Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Drake And More Pay Tribute To Pop Smoke

The hip-hop world is in mourning after the tragic and shocking death of rising Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke. Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent, Drake, Rich the Kid, Chance the Rapper and more paid tribute to the slain 20-year-old recording artist on Wednesday (Feb. 18) with many responding in disbelief.

“The Bible tells us that jealousy is as cruel as the grave. Unbelievable,” Minaj, who collaborated with Pop on his “Welcome to the Party” remix, wrote on Instagram. “Rest In Peace, Pop.”

The Brooklyn native, whose birth names was Bashar Barakah Jackson, was shot and killed inside his Hollywood Hills rental home early Wednesday. Two masked men broke into the home at around 4:30 a.m, sources told TMZ. Police arrived at 4:55 a.m. after responding to a call from the East Coast alerting them to a home invasion at the location. Pop was transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“No such thing as success [without] jealousy,” tweeted 50 Cent. “Treachery comes from those who are close. RIP.”

Rich the Kid revealed that he spoke with Pop hours before his death. “I don’t wanna believe it, we literally spoke less than 24 hours ago I’m lost for word [sic] tryna type this message love you bro this s**t hurt me so bad that you gone already I’m tryna stop the tears.”

Drake took to his Instagram Story with a message on being grateful for life. “Sit by some good energy tonight in these unwelcoming times. Be with some good people and express how grateful you are for life. RIP Pop.”

“Rest Up Pop Smoke, you were too young,” tweeted Chance the Rapper. “God Bless and comfort your family. What a crazy trajectory you were on man smh.”

A candlelight vigil was held for the “Gatti ” rapper in Brooklyn on Wednesday night.
