Ne-Yo Is Interested In Working With H.E.R. And BTS

Despite generational gaps and quarrels in hip-hop circles, R&B figures have kept their hearts and minds open about the next coming of vocalists, including Ne-Yo who recently praised the talents of H.E.R. and uber-popular boy band BTS.

Recently speaking with Hollywood Life at the 67th Miss Universe Pageant, the singer-songwriter gave props to BTS, who recently took home awards at the Billboard Music Awards and iHeart Radio Awards respectively. While calling them "next level," he added his interest in working with the band.

"Oh I would love to [work with BTS," he said. "In order to maintain my standing in music I got to embrace the new generation. I have never understood the concept of a person that didn’t. It’s like, ‘Well I will do what I do, and they do what they do!’ No, you did what you did, and they’re the next level of what you did and you gotta… You gotta be a part of that if you want to be a part of the music industry."

He also gave a nod to H.E.R., who earned her first batch of Grammy nominations this month.

“So yeah, shout out to BTS and the BTS’s of the world and artists like H.E.R. who is really making major moves in R&B, in the R&B space," he said. "Everybody that is doing music that means quality as opposed to trend… You know that is what I look out for!”

Considering Ne-Yo is also popular in the songwriting community as much as he is with performing, perhaps we'll see him pen a couple songs for these new acts on the block.

T-Pain Accused Of Plagiarizing Popular Bollywood Song

T-Pain wanted to gift fans with a final tune before the year's end, but instead of praises, the singer was reportedly hit with allegations of plagiarism. According to various claims made on Twitter, T-Pain has been accused of copying a popular Bollywood song.

T-Pain reportedly shared his new single "That's Yo Money" on social media on Dec. 15. Shortly after the music dropped, fans began pointing out the similarities between his song and "Tum Hi Ho," a track that was originally featured in the 2013 Bollywood picture Aashiqui 2.

Dunno why but this seems familiar 🙈🙈🙈 #aashiqui2 #tumhiho @TPAIN https://t.co/69NJvAujsT . It’s a melody from Mithun’s song buddy @Mithoon11 @raiisonai @itsBhushanKumar

— Mohit Suri (@mohit11481) December 15, 2018

Sir, the melody that you have used in your new song is my original work for a previously released Hindi film..The Label is looking into this.#tumhiho #Aashiqui2 https://t.co/5fnDf4sfg7

— Mithoon (@Mithoon11) December 15, 2018

The allegations only grew stronger after the song's creator Mithoon called out the artist on Twitter. "Sir, the melody that you have used in your new song is my original work for a previously released Hindi film..The Label is looking into this. #tumhiho #Aashiqui2," Mithoon reacted.

Filmmaker Mohit Suri also joined the discussion, tweeting, "dunno why but this seems familiar," Suri reacted.

T-Pain has not explicitly commented on the incident, but the song has been taken down from his Twitter and YouTube account with the unavailable song link citing "a copyright claim by a third party" as the reason for its disappearance. You can still hear a snippet on Pain's Instagram account below.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Facing Additional Charges Over Chief Keef Shooting Case

Things just keep getting worse for Tekashi 6ix9ine. The Feds have reportedly launched an investigation into Tekashi's involvement in the Chief Keef shooting case to see if it may lead to any additional charges, TMZ reports.

Federal prosecutors are reportedly reviewing evidence from the case after police suggested the Brooklyn rapper implicated himself on tape. TMZ previously posted leaked footage in which 6ix9ine is heard saying that he's got a "30 pack" on Tadoe, Chief Keef's cousin. Feds think this may be evidence that the "Stoopid" artist ordered a hit on Tadoe. Additionally, one of the men who allegedly followed Chief Keef prior to the shooting, is a "known associate" of Tekashi's.

As previously reported, Chief Keef and his team were shot at after leaving the W Hotel in New York City's Times Square in June 2018. Luckily no one was injured. Nevertheless, the leaked video suggested the rapper was inquiring about Keef and Tadoe's whereabouts, although he does not say anything explicit about the shooting. Tekashi was previously under investigation by local authorities, but it was later handed to the Feds.

Ordering a hit on someone is just the cherry on top of an already extensive list of offenses. The rapper is currently facing prison time for racketeering. The court is also looking into re-sentencing Tekashi in his child sex case after the rapper was previously given four years of probation.
