Erykah Badu Decided To Do A "Hotline Bling" Remix And We Support It

You used to call me cell-u-lar.

Drake's "Hotline Bling" has been remixed and revamped by anybody that has a studio and a Soundcloud account, which is to be expected when you're Drizzy and you make great music. But when Erykah Badu decided to put her own stamp on it, things were taken up a notch.

Thursday evening (October 1) FatBellyBella laced Aubrey fans and her own fans with her version of events. E Badu's rendition of the song dedicated to late night romps in the hay is drenched in all kinds of sweet, sultry vocals. Badu makes "Hotline" her own, while still staying in the melodic pocket of the original giving both fans just enough of each artist to enjoy the musical pairing.

Listen to Badu's remix and be on the lookout for her forthcoming mixtape "But U Caint Use My Phone"

Premiere: Joell Ortiz Teams With Heatmakerz For "Captain"

Any listeners of Joell Ortiz know that you'll be hard pressed to catch a weak verse from him. The Brooklyn wordsmith never takes a bar off, whether it's over the production by the likes of Just Blaze and DJ Premier, or alongside Eminem and his now-defunct group Slaughterhouse. His new song "Captain" continues his run of grade A lyricism.

“It always feels good to tell a dope beat what’s been on my mind,” Joell told VIBE. “My oh my how times have changed. Enjoy the rapping."

On "Captain," Joell Ortiz acknowledges that fans may think he's fallen off – although he released the potent collaborative album Mona Lisa with producer Apollo Brown in 2018, his last solo effort was in 2016. But over a signature soul sample from Heatmakerz, he makes the case that he's still got more to say.

"Y'all think I lost my step? Was on the run, but had to stop and never caught my breath? I'm drenched, I'm on the bench with like four more reps. In other words, I got sh*t left to get off my chest."

"Captain" is the second single from Joell Ortiz's upcoming solo album Monday, proceeding the previous single "Learn You" featuring Big K.R.I.T. Monday will feature production from J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Apollo Brown, Heatmakerz, Nottz and more, and is scheduled for an August 30, 2019 release through Mello Music Group.

Premiere: Project Girls Club Deliver Bossed-Up Swag In "Heavy" Visuals

What makes Atlanta's Project Girls Club so delightful is their creative approach to the girl group troupe. The collective, comprised of Shanell, D. Woods and Mika Means have returned with "Heavy" which also features stellar bars from Akbar V.

Directed by the Class Clown studio, the ladies shine in the black and white visuals with looks to complete their eclectic personalities. Like their previous single "Run Up," "Heavy" is rooted in swag and strong vocals from Shanell as well as standout bars from Means and Akbar V.

Known for her time on Love and hip Hop Atlanta, Akbar V puts reality woes to the side and lays down witty raps. Shanell also brings the dance moves during her verse with an ode to her time in Young Money. "On top. call me when you wanna see ya bedrock," she sings.

Project Girls Club was founded by Woods, Shanell and Means as a form of pushing the culture of powerful women forward in the south and beyond. The niche is that PGC not only features those in the music video but producers, directors and DJs like Traci Steele.

"Everyone in Project Girls Group has their own vibe and we don't make anyone else have to be on everyone else's vibe. We celebrate each other's vibe (laughs)," Wood previously shared with VIBE. "I'm not going to make my dream be your dream. Let's figure how to coexist these dreams and push them to the next level."

As the summer continues to heat up, "Heavy" is a perfect track to your hot girl playlist.

Nicki Minaj took over DJ Felly Fell’s show on L.A.’s Power 106 radio station Friday (July 19) where she premiered the remix to DaBaby's “Suge” single.

“Ya’ll already know I’m back on my bull! We got a lot more in the motherf**kin’ chamber,” said Minaj.

The “Megatron” rapper  also sent a shout out to Da Baby. “I just think he’s super dope and he actually spits actual bars.”

Prior to the song premiere, Minaj shared her first public statement on the death of Nipsey Hussle. The Queens native explained that she wasn’t on the internet at the time of Hussle’s murder, but wanted to send condolences to Lauren London, and the rest of his family.

“When he passed I didn’t get a chance to be online at that time,” Minaj told Power 106's DJ Carisma. “Lauren London happens to be somebody that I adore. I felt like my heart ripped out when I heard [that he was killed]. I just wanted to finally send my condolences to his family and his fans.”

Earlier in the interview, Minaj sent love to her fans in Saudi Arabia after canceling her appearance at the Jedah World Festival over the country’s treatment of women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Minaj added that she turned down $1.5 million by pulling out of the performance. She also confirmed that she will be heading out on tour after the release of her upcoming new album.
